Act 3 is when it starts getting good during your first read
The pesterlogs are long, but they’re important
The Midnight Crew intermission is also important, but not enjoyable the first time you read it, especially if you have trouble following circular time travel plots. It’s much funnier the second time around, I promise
The Exiles are not enjoyable the first time. They grow on you, don’t worry (and they’re funnier during Read #2)
When you reach Act 5 and meet the trolls, you may become irrationally angry that you just got used to the 4 kids and now you have to meet and like 12 more characters? Fuck this and fuck you Hussie I’m not reading this comic anymore these feelings are normal and expected
Take your time with the interactive games, they’re full of easter eggs that are plot relevant
TWS: Natasha saves Steve, by pressing him into her chest. She has to act fast to save both him and Sam, because she is the only one who saw Bucky’s gun and was able to correctly and timely predict where he will shoot. This moment is not even aknowledged, as it’s just a thing that happens. She literally is sitting in Steve’s lap for the rest of that scene, feeling around between his legs for her guns, yet nothing, no tee-hee, she is sitting on Steve’s dick ~u guys~
AOU: Natasha saves Bruce by pulling him into her chest. The camera lingers, the shot goes on and on, everything is telling “LOOK, he is ON HER it’s like they ARE HAVING SEX and his face is in HER BOOBS GUUUUUUYSSSSS THEY LOOK LIKE THEY WILL DO THE DO”. Nothing about this shows her competence, nothing about this presents her as more than an object.
