The Real World: Avengers Tower
  • Interviewer: So what's it like living with Tony?
  • Bruce: When I moved in, he insisted on funding all of my research. Except, you know, ever since The Incident, all my work's been theoretical. It's not actually that expensive. I've started just spending all the extra on fruit pies, just to see if he was keeping track. He isn't. There are a lot of unused rooms in this building, and at least three of them are stacked floor to ceiling with fruit pies. He hasn't said a word.
  • Natasha: It turned out Pepper and I both speak French. Tony doesn't. Now, whenever he walks in, we just start whispering in French and giggling. Half the time we're just exchanging recipes. He pretends not to be eavesdropping, but the other day I caught him asking JARVIS what 'des oeufs' meant.
  • Clint: I bought this big bag of little plastic flies, right? And whenever he's not paying attention, I throw them into his drink. Half the time he doesn't even notice and just drinks the damn things, but the other half? He starts checking all the house filtration systems, the exterminators, the works. He can't figure out where all these flies are coming from. He's fumigated three times in the last month.
  • Thor: I attempted to provide assistance with a project, but Stark assured me that it was 'very technical', and that I would not understand the intricacies. I can see why he would think so, as I am a mere Prince of Asgard, taught such basic engineering when I was a child and his ancestors could not yet walk. It has been five weeks, and he still has not corrected the misaligned condenser coil causing the problem.
  • Steve: I don't know what Howard taught that kid, but he seems to be under the impression that homosexuality was invented in 2000. He keeps leaving magazines and pictures lying around like the sight of two men holding hands is going to give me a heart attack. I don't have the heart to tell him about the Greeks.
  • Interviewer: So how are things in Avengers Tower?
  • Tony: How are things? I have no idea. I really don't. There's some kind of insect infestation in the vents and I think a spy is trying to seduce my girlfriend into moving to France. I tried to prank Captain America with gay porn, but him and Thor just started trying to reverse-engineer workout routines. The other day I went into one of the spare rooms, and I found some kind of one-armed sex hobo sitting on a throne of empty fruit pie boxes. I just walked out and closed the door. I don't even wanna know.

Every time they were doing a Marvel movie, I was like who can I audition for? I can be the guy that says, Thor, throw the hammer! It got to the point where Kevin [Feige, President of Marvel Studios] was like, Stop. Don’t call us anymore. If we need you, we’ll call you. Six months later I got a call about Falcon.

And here I thought he couldn’t get any cuter

Hydra had us. 

They told him to kill me. They’d had him for weeks by then…and he didn’t. He got us out…

If that’s not progress, I don’t know what is.

RP inspired bullshit. Boys get captured, Cap gets drugged all to hell and Winter gets ‘reconditioned’ the old fashion way in leu of having any actual brainwashing equipment on hand. After a couple'a weeks, he’s told to off Cap to prove his loyalty. He kills everyone but him instead. Spends the rest of the adrenaline high shouldering a doped Cap to safety before passing the fuck out and staying out for the next couple'a days. Once all the crap works its way through Cap’s system, he picks up where Winter left off, gets them a ride home and Winter some well deserved medical attention. 

Marvel ship names (with some bonus AoS ships)

This is meant to be an all-inclusive Marvel (MCU) master shipnames list for fans to use as a reference and  to find out which we have some kind of fan consensus on. The first name listed is generally the most popular ship name as far as I am aware. If you don’t see your ship listed under one character name check the other. I have an extra section for threesomes too. This is in hope for a better character ship tagging thing (especially as people can’t agree how to spell Nat’s name) for people to find their favs or block their hated ships.

Okay, I’ve seen a few joke posts pop up after CATWS came about how Natasha’s hair after she showered went from curly to instantly straightened again. I didn’t really notice the change the first time I watched the movie, so when I saw it again I paid attention. And I found something very interesting. 

When we see Natasha after her and Steve have settled in at Sam’s place, she’s freshly showered and her hair is curly and almost unkempt. In this moment, Natasha is incredibly vulnerable and it’s completely on display in her appearance. She opens up to Steve about how she had hoped SHIELD could be a second chance for her, how she tried to fight the good fight and atone for her past sins. 

She feels as if every good thing she tried to do amounted to nothing after this reveal. That despite all of her efforts to change, she’s still the bad guy. But when she asks Steve if he would trust her, he tells her “I would now” and you can see her demeanor instantly change. 

 He trusts her, based on what he knows of Natasha now, without even knowing everything she’s done and used to be.It means so much to Natasha, that someone (especially Steve) trusts her, sees her as the hero, especially at a time when she’s feeling vulnerable, betrayed, and alone. 

So the very next scene, she’s professional, she’s confident. Her hair is straightened, her gung-ho attitude is back. She’s ready to take the fight to HYDRA and find the truth, confident in herself and the super soldier that believes in her, even when she thinks he has every reason not to. 

I just thought the two scenes provided such an interesting juxtaposition and used visual cues as a way of  depicting Natasha’s current state of mind and her emotional struggle. This film continues to amaze me in how thoughtfully it depicts each of its characters and so many subtle ways. 

You know, they’re right. No one would want to see a Wonder Woman movie. A Super Hero coming from a land of Mythological figures would just go over everyone’s heads-

And a hero smoothly adjusting to modern times would just get boring-

And all women in successful super hero movies are sooo weak and boring-

I mean, really, who could pull this stuff off?

Bucky’s face in this scene will never not break my heart.

He’s so proud of Steve for what he has done, and is willing to make sure every damn person in that camp will love this ‘Captain America’ as much as he has always loved Steve.

But the second that Steve looks away, he can’t keep the mask up anymore. His little buddy, who should have been safe at home, away from war and violence and bloodshed and torture, has been experimented on and turned into this powerful weapon. His little buddy who should never have faced war is now the icon of the US forces and will remain so for the rest of his life.

Bucky isn’t jealous, not at all, but he doesn’t know what part he can play in Steve’s life anymore. He always looked out for Steve and looked after him, and he always would, but now, Steve is going to be on the frontline, and Bucky knows he isn’t always going to be able to protect him from that and it’s killing him.

And what makes it worse is that he follows Steve. Not Captain America. Not the supersoldier. He follows his buddy, the guy he would always protect, even though, in the end, it gets him killed.

And even worse: following his friend to protect him leads to him becoming one of the most dangerous threats his beloved friend has ever faced.
