24 Gifts Of 2016 - Day Twenty Four - O Christmas Tree (Random The OC/MCU Crossover)  
Just a short little random bit of a random 'verse where Tony Stark and Pepper Potts somehow became Ryan's foster parents, and Ryan is a frickin' genuis so Tony is kinda loving being his dad... lol

O Christmas Tree

"Where the hell did that come from?" Tony said as he walked into the living room of the penthouse and found a gigantic, fully decorated, Christmas tree in the middle of the room, Pepper looking at it admiringly.

"Show him," Pepper told Ryan, who was sitting on the couch.

Ryan tapped a few commands into his tablet, and the tree disappeared, then tapped them again and it came back. "It's kind of like a hologram," he said. "I have emitters all over the room, so you'd have to be trying to cover more than half of them before the tree would start looking fake." He paused and turned to look at Tony, brows furrowing slightly. "Pepper said you don't like real trees, they die and leave a mess, but she likes them... I figured this was a good compromise... is it okay?"

Tony didn't answer for a moment, then nodded. "Yeah, kid, it is," he said. "Why don't I know you're working on this things before you suddenly show the results? I would have helped..."

Ryan smiled slightly, looking down and shrugging. "I didn't think of it until a couple night ago, and... I kinda wanted it to be a surprise."

"A couple..." Tony began. "You really know how to trounce on a genius's ego, don't you? I get an idea and spend weeks trying to make it work. You take a couple days and it's perfect."

"Not perfect," Ryan said. "The decorations are generic, and the garland doesn't... sparkle in the light, there's no movement at all, and the slightest air current makes the real stuff move slightly and sparkle, But I... I can't figure out the right algorithm to make it look real."

"Let me take a look," Tony offered. "Maybe fresh eyes'll see something you don't."

Ryan nodded and offered his tablet for Tony to look at. "I don't like not being able to... see it."

"I'm just relieved to see you aren't actually a robot, I was getting worried there," Tony joked as he took the tablet and sat beside Ryan to look at the coding.

"Funny," Ryan said. "But we can't all be ego maniacal geniuses who are only half as smart as they think they are," he added.

"Be honest, that still makes me pretty brilliant."

Pepper slipped from the room, leaving her boys to bicker good naturedly, and headed out onto the expansive patio to start inviting the Avengers to join them for Christmas morning. Tony would surely complain, but she knew Ryan would enjoy it, he always did enjoy being around the team, and as soon as Tony saw Ryan was happy, he would only give a token grumble ever so often. The teenager had seemingly done the impossible: make Tony care about someone else more than himself.

The End

Merry Christmas everyone! My mom and I had our Christmas Dinner a couple hours after I got off work today, so yummy, so tomorrow we can pretty much do nothing except open presents and watch movies! lol

I like this crossover. I can picture Ryan calling out Tony on his bull and when he does something that could accidently hurt Pepper.

Oh he so would... and he completely trolls Tony by being very 'eh' about Iron Man, but fanboying over Captain America... mostly just to mess with Tony... he's not actually in awe of any of them after the first time he shares a meal with them... Ryan will always be grateful to Tony for taking him in, but at the same time he is not gonna put up with the man's massive ego and will call him on his shit...

For a random verse I've kinda put a lot of thought into this... lol

Loved this story and universe. I think Ryan would be a great addition to the marvel universe lol. I think he is so chill and low key (except when he is cage fighting)he could handle the insanity that is the avengers.
