Now I just really want to see a reunion scene with Richard and that guy he saved, with Richard smiling that sweet little smile and trying to bluster through the kid’s shining eyes and grateful words.
"You gave me enough money to get my life on track and then you saved my life as well. I If there’s anything I can ever do to pay you back…"
"Hey man, it’s just my job, don’t worry about it!"
And then later on, in the car with his MX:
"You’re a good man, Detective Richard Paul."
Because the MX knows that what Richard did wasn’t logical, wasn’t the programmed response for most humans, but it is programmed to understand Justice and Good, and that it can see in the detective that always thanks him for his coffee.
i somehow found myself reading losers fic again but i keep forgetting to check if it’s movieverse or comicsverse and…that’s kind of a crucial distinction. especially if it’s post-canon
