Also for John McClane. Who'd TOTALLY stab an Angel in the face if it started acting a dick.
And for Captain America, who would stab you, but only if his shield wasn't handy. Otherwise all he's got for you is vibranium to the face. He's also mouthy, so a pretty well put together hero.

Today’s Botfeels Edition
Tony Stark was 17 years old when his parents died. He was also 17 years old when he built Dummy.
His age is given as being between 35-38 during the Iron Man movie adaptations and novelizations.
This means that when Dummy saved Tony’s life in IM1, he was roughly the same chronological age (17-19) as Tony was when Tony lost his parents.
Dummy hates the Fabrication Units (It’s their fault)
OOh, can I ask why Dummy hates fabrication? It’s cheating, because I wouldn’t have thought to ask if you hadn’t listed it, but now that you brought it up, I remember at least one point where it came up, and now I’m really curious! Also, I love your stories and your tumblr, it makes me happy :)
12 people have asked this, so I’m going to use this one because it came first. 8)
Dummy hates fabrication because the Fabrication Units don’t make mistakes.
Unlike the helper bots or Jarvis, they’re not true AIs, they have enough awareness to do their jobs, but that’s it. Because of this, they only do what they’re ordered to do and they do it perfectly every time.
They always get an off-hand ‘good boy,’ because Tony talks to EVERYTHING, sometimes when he’s been alone for too long and human contact is a faded memory, he says “Good boy” to the lights when they turn on, and let me tell you, the lights don’t give a damn.
They really don’t.
But Dummy wants to be Tony’s favorite, he’s the oldest, he’s the first born son, he’s the BESTEST OF THE BOTS. Except he makes mistakes because he’s allowed to. And Tony doesn’t think about it much, but yes. He loves Dummy, and thus, he allows, even encourages the chaos and the mistakes and the self-determination.
Because he loves the damn things.
But the fabrication units get “good boy” every time and Dummy gets the “going to donate you to a city college” threat and it’s SO UNFAIR it is just UNFAIR. So sometimes he occasionally accidentally not really meaning to do so, must’ve been a glitch in his code sabotages the fabrication units.
Then they get all bitchy and warn Tony that Dummy knocked something into the middle of their work. And the “city college” comes up again and Dummy is reassigned to dusting because You can at least follow orders and not break things.
Basically, the Fabrication units are whiny little tattle tale kiss-ups and Dummy hates them.
I’m so in love with how her mind works. In. LOVE.
