This is actually an old post I wrote back when I first started this blog and apparently never posted? So yeah, enjoy :)

Headcanon that Rhodey is the first person to genuinely compliment Tony (there was Jarvis of course, but those words of encouragement were always tainted by Howard’s imminent disapproval and Maria’s distanced acknowledgement). 

The first time it happens they’re studying in the library together. Rhodey’s been watching Tony’s back for a few months now - because tbh the kid needs all the help it can get - and they’ve now reached the somewhere-between-being-friendly-and-being-friends territory. And well, Rhodey honestly likes Tony who’s funny and sarcastic and never lets anyone intimidate into keeping his mouth shut, which is why he’s decided to put more effort into this budding friendship (after it becomes clear that Tony won’t reach out but won’t push him away either, and damn does Rhodey want to hit his past self once he realises that it’s because Tony’s shy) and spend more time together. So. Studying.

Turns out they work surprisingly well together. Tony, known for his age, his genius and his complete inability to shut up, is actually very focused once he’s presented with a problem to figure out. Rhodey on the other hand is spurned on by the air of intense concentration surrounding Tony when he gets like that. It draws him in but doesn’t overwhelm him which is actually sort a perfect combination. At the same time Rhodey is stubborn enough to pull Tony out of his zone occasionally to get him to eat or drink or get his ass outta the library because we’ve been here for eight hours straight and you haven’t blinked in ten minutes, now move it! Suffice to say Tony becomes Rhodey’s new study buddy. Permanently. 

But on that very first day at what later becomes widely known as ‘their’ table, Rhodey witnesses for the first time just how intelligent Tony really is. Sure, rationally he’s known that Tony’s a genius. You can’t spend five minutes with the guy without realising that he’s smart. But this, watching Tony breeze through calculations Rhodey knows for sure the prof won’t even talk about until February is something else.

“You’re brilliant,” Rhodey says, wonder and amazement and respect all mashed into a confusing ball of emotions.

Tony’s head snaps up at the sudden sound, allowing Rhodey the pleasure of seeing firsthand how Tony’s eyes widen as his mind processes the actual words, confusion flashing across his face before he hastily ducks his head. And that’s, that’s unusual all right because Tony doesn’t averts his eyes, doesn’t back down, not ever, and now Rhodey is definitely almost worried. Except-

Except Tony is blushing. 

Rhodey blinks, mind frozen in disbelief because Tony doesn’t blush. Ever. But it’s undeniable, the flushed cheeks clearly visible even with his head bowed so low the tip of his nose is touching book. Rhodey opens his mouth, perhaps to tease, perhaps to change the topic, he honestly has no clue, when Tony peers up from under his lashes, all bright eyes and dark cheeks and a small, pleased smile that Rhodey has never seen before, and Tony’s never been out of place at MIT, always carried himself larger than life, but in this moment he looks so fucking young- and Rhodey doesn’t do any of those things.

“You’re brilliant,” he repeats instead, firmly. Holds Tony’s eyes patiently, until he’s sure his stubborn friend knows how serious he is, knows that he honestly, truly believes that. And then, when Tony’s hands start to twitch nervously and he swallows, clearly uncomfortable, Rhodey doesn’t comment on that either. 

It’s “Now help me figure out what’s wrong with this equation because Professor Lanz is gonna kill me for real if I get it wrong again,” instead of “You’re a wonderful, talented person who’s here on their own merit and not just because of who your parents are, never let anyone tell you different,” and “You still aren’t done with that? What have you been doing in the past hour?” instead of “Thank you.”

It’s Rhodey and Tony, and maybe it’s their beginning or maybe it’s the core of what they are together but it doesn’t matter. They’ll figure it all out on their own time, eventually.

And if Rhodey makes it a point to genuinely compliment Tony at least twice a day, just to see that beautiful, pleased smile light up Tony’s eyes again, well that’s nobody’s business but his own.

Soooooo. This got out of hand fast.




I think I have enough ex-villan besties for now. But I’ll keep an eye out for strays.

(In the 616 universe, the Black Widow starts off as an Iron man villan)

Natasha and Tony being best Bros, tony going with that to get mani-pedies done, going cloths shopping (dragging stebe and Clint along to carry their stuff) nat and tony taking pepper out to a nice lunch and catching up, treating her to a spa day, natasha raiding tony’s closet and taking his Hoodies and maybe even unearthing one of his old MIT sweatshirt/pants and keeping them. Tony saying very calmly and seriously “Next question” when a reporter asks nat something stupid until they all know that those kind of questions are never gonna be paid attention to. Natasha sitting on the floor ready a magazine, between tony’s legs while he braids her hair becuase he’s very skilled with his hands and got the hang of it super quick. Natasha teaching tony how to pick the perfect pair of heels and how to walk in them. Natasha teaching tony other forms of fighting other than martial arts he knows and how to combine them (said fighting techniques include fighting with a knife) Tony spoiling her with Beau dresses and shoes (like he does with Pepper) which she always makes him give back because it’s not like she doesn’t like them or aren’t gorgeous, but she doesn’t want him to make it a habit and feel that it’s an appropriate way to express affection (he stops but on her birthday he goes over board) tony teach nat how to do advanced coding and hacking and teaching her how to use the suit, get him out of it and other things he’s only taught steve because he trusts her. Natasha trusting him enough to have jarvis call him out to the living room when she has a nightmare and clints out of town. Them cuddling on the couch and watching bad movies till the fall asleep. And tony doing the same when steve’s gone. And if steves gone she’ll just slide in to bed and he’ll hold her. Natasha tell tony about her past because she trusts him and he understands. Tony being the only one on the team who’s seen natasha cry from the heart and comforting her. And never bring it up. I HAVE SO MANY NATASHA AND TONY BRO FEELS RIGHT NOW I CANT EVEN SPIT THEM ALL OUT HELP!! mrsstark-rogers

I want to analyze Enjolras’s “Je te vénère” to Feuilly and Grantaire’s description “Grantaire admirait, aimait, et vénérait Enjolras” so bad

Because obviously we’re talking about two very different ways to “venerate” someone, right? There’s literally no point in me pretending that Grantaire’s veneration for Enjolras is in any way healthy - from a shipper’s point of view (and, really, I assume, even from a non-shipper point of view?) the one thing you can hope for in an hypothetical canon-era fix-it is that Grantaire arrives to a point where he can see and love Enjolras beyond the idealized idea of him he poured all his hope and remaining beliefs in. 

And we can also safely assume that it is not at all the same thing, Enjolras’s veneration for Feuilly. I read Enjolras’s “je te vénère” as such deep, profound admiration and respect for this one man and his life story and his character, that “admiration” isn’t enough anymore; Enjolras needs a bigger word to show his appreciation, he needs everybody to know just how much amazing Feuilly is. 

The difference comes from who Enjolras and Grantaire are, I guess, and how they relate to their friends, and I think especially to themselves, at the point where those sentences are written but also HOW they are written.
