you know what would be great?
if a year or two down the road, fury discovers that it’s STEVE who’s the huge pain in his ass, not tony.
tony’s getting his shit together and mellowing out and, sure, he sasses fury and the government every so often, but most of his real arguing happens with steve
but steve is a nightmare. yeah, he’s polite and respectful—if he agrees with you. if he disagrees, he’ll crawl up your ass and set up camp, and he can usually talk the other avengers around to his side. he snaps at the paparazzi and threatens them. he gets in brawls at bars every single time he goes out. he gets in arguments with people on social media and always winds up calling out the hosts of the television programs he appears on, the self-righteous son of a bitch
he comes out as bisexual and pretty much does everything in his power to obliterate the public perception that he’s in any way repressed or old fashioned. one time he even gets in a fight with the president at the goddamned White House State Dinner because of an offhanded comment he makes about women’s pay being equal already
steve’s more trouble than all the other avengers combined.
