"The One Thing"

This site title comes from that quotable exchange between Tony and Pepper in Iron Man 3 (2013). Thanks to IMDB for the quotes below:

TONY: Nothing's been the same since New York.

PEPPER: Oh, really? I didn't notice that at all.

TONY: You experience things and then they're over, and you still can't explain them. Gods, aliens, other dimensions. I'm just a man in a can. The only reason I haven't cracked up is probably because you moved in. Which is great. I love you. I'm lucky. But honey, I can't sleep. You go to bed, I come down here. I do what I know. I tinker. I... Threat is imminent. And I have to protect the one thing that I can't live without. That's you.

So there's actually a parenthetical "I can't live without" after the titular phrase I adopted. But choosing to make the main title elliptical provides the ambiguity that I rather like; you can continue the quote with your own phrase, depending on how you view Tony and Pepper's relationship, and hopefully it will still ring true. ;)

Layout credits

Current layout features the amazing fanart drawn by Anna Szwajgier (aka Cylonka), used with her permission. It is my favorite moment in Iron Man 2, the first movie I watched of the MCU franchise and which converted me into a Pepperony shipper. ♥

I created the textures on this blend myself, using free stock photos from Pixabay. Patterns are from Toptal Subtle Patterns. Photo manipulations were done in Adobe Photoshop CC. This layout was based on a design from Templated. Free favicon generated by FreeFavicon. The listing runs thanks to Enthusiast and Fanupdate.
