and i'm really friendly

Tony is filled with dread at the thought of the team returning because he knows that they'll blame him for the exile. He can see it; Steve for him losing his temper in Siberia even though he had reason; Clint will throw another jab about breaking a back; Wanda blames him for anything. But he's done with them. As he sits at the compound waiting for there return he goes over every interaction and wondered why he ever considered these people his friends his only real friends were Rhodey and Bruce

Yes, he is. He really is done with them. It’s actually a surprisingly…freeing conclusion, once Tony allows himself to believe that. Because you see, Tony never does anything half-way. When he realised his weapons were hurting the wrong people, he didn’t put the deliveries on stricter security, he shut the entire production down. We can stand all day here, arguing about whether or not that’s a good thing, but the point is when Tony does something, he does it 100%, no take backs, right from the start.

And when he comes to the internal decision that Steve, Clint and Wanda aren’t his friends, aren’t his team mates, that changes things. Maybe not as much as it should have, because he’s still far too generous as far as Rhodey is concerned, but still.

No, Tony isn’t going to stop his work to get the ex-team back on US ground, but his motivation changes. It’s not…personal as much anymore. It’s because it will be an advantage once the fight–the one Tony’s been warning them of from the start, and no, he isn’t bitter about that at all

But it’s easier now, to face them again when they inevitably return. It’s easier to brush off the sharp comments and thinly veiled insults, to put on a smile for the cameras and disappear into the crowd as soon as the pictures have been taken.

On the surface nothing has changed. But mentally, accepting that his former team mates aren’t his friends, that maybe they never were, helps Tony in ways even he doesn’t fully understand.

It puts a distance between them and him, emotionally. And until it’s there Tony never even realised how much he needs that.

Weeks later, when Steve tries to extend a hand, genuinely contrite, tries to fix things between them, Tony lets the call go to voicemail and never listens to the message–not even on purpose, simply because he’s busy and FRIDAY is no longer required to remind him of those things, because Steve has lost that status a long time ago.

It takes even longer for Steve (and far longer for Clint) to realise that though. Realise that, at some point, Tony has stopped waiting for them. And if that bothers them more than either of them would like to admit, well. That’s hardly Tony’s problem anymore, is it?

as we get closer to stranger things season two and (possibly) a new trailer dropping, i hope the fandom remembers that while headcanons are nice, odds are they are just that and not to get upset or mad when the show ends up doing something completely different than what they expected

favorite character meme: five relationships ♡ [1/5] julie & tyra 

my little girl’s all grown up. 

Just a couple pet peeves about Yuri on Ice fanfiction from your friendly neighborhood bilingual:

1.) Yuuri would never refer to his sister as simply “Mari.” Japanese kids (even grown up) always refer to their older siblings with an honorific. In the show, Yuuri calls Mari “Mari-nee-chan” (sometimes spelled “Mari-neechan.”) You can also get away with just “nee-chan” but never “Mari” by itself. (I’ve also seen some people try this weird fusion, hybrid thing “Mari-nee”–without the “chan”–and that’s… just not done. Sorry.

2.) Not all Japanese characters are kanji. Japanese characters can be broken up into three sections: kanji (Chinese characters), hiragana (phonetic Japanese characters), and katakana (phonetic Japanese characters for foreign words/emphasis/etc.) So when I see something like “[character] can’t read the kanji,” I know what you’re trying to say (that they can’t read Japanese), but what you imply is that they can read the hiragana/katakana. Just so you know.

3.) This one’s a little complicated, but I’m gonna break it down for you: So, you’re familiar with Yurio’s tendency to call Mila “Babacheva,” right? Okay, so that’s a Japanese joke. “Baba” is a derogatory (or at least very casual) way of referring to an elderly woman. So, basically, he’s sneaking “old lady” into Mila Babicheva’s name. What I’m trying to say is, if your AU doesn’t take place in Japan or in a world where Japan doesn’t exist, maybe give her a different nickname…? Because it just doesn’t make sense otherwise. (And I can already hear people like, “But Yurio doesn’t speak Japanese, so how does the joke work in canon?” and I’m sorry, but that’s Kubo-sensei’s problem, not mine. I don’t make the news–just report it.)

I hope this has been informative. I’ll add any others I think of later. (And feel free to add your own if you also speak Japanese!)

EDIT: I’ve been told the “baba” joke works in Slavic languages too! Thanks for the info, guys!

Somewhere in Virginia, there is a house that has an overflowing swear jar that Lucille started for Negan, but never got to empty.

OTP Prompt 6

Imagine your OTP having a Nerf war. Who stockpiles bullets? Who carries extra guns? Who acts like a secret agent in the movies, hiding behind things and ducking out to shoot, and who just runs in shooting?

Bonus: Who acts like they’re too mature for the game, but gets really into it after getting hit a few times?

OT3+ bonus: Do they form teams, and if so, who team up? Which one is a double agent, stealing bullets/guns from one team for the other?
