Request: Avengers x reader request? Tony,
being known for his impulsive choices adopts a 14 yr old girl. She’s got the
innocent girl next door look but she’s a complete devil. Nat loves her, Clint
is afraid of her and Loki, Bucky and Sam are her partners in crime for evil
pranks. All is well until she pulls a prank on Bruce and he hulks out. But even
Hulk falls under her innocent spell and can’t seem to do anything to her.
You knew you were being adopted, but you had no idea who it
was till they came to pick you up. So when a limousine pulled up, you were
surprised to say the least, especially when Tony Stark got out the car.

So we ended up spending like 6 hourstrying to dye my hair blonde (and my scalp is fried but my hair is softer than ever???) and the cut itself only took about an hour. But also it’s past midnight, so any blue hair dying is going to have to be saved for another day
But I can physically feel the gay increasing in my body and I’m so excited!!
Hulk in the Thor: Ragnarok Trailers (Updated with New Chunky Bling!) does look even more like Bruce!
My Thoughts …
CGI and MoCap: I don’t think we’re quite to the level of detail on the CGI in parts of the second tailer as we got in the first one, but it looks like the two-year hiatus brought advances in both the technology for Motion Capture and the designers have decided to take some steps forward in bringing Hulk’s look closer to Banner’s as part of the storyline. I would argue this has been happening all along–it’s just that the changes are more dramatic for Hulk this time.
Nose: Along with his ears, the only thing undersized about Hulk is his nose. If you look, it’s gone from almost button-ish to more Romanesque like Mark’s in the first trailer. One reason I think the CGI isn’t totally finished in the second trailer is Hulk’s nose looks different (slimmer? pointer?) when he’s out of the helmet, and there may be different CGI teams working on different scenes; otherwise, I’m not sure of any other reasons for that difference since the finished look is usually very consistent within a movie. They have a few months to fix this, and I hope they do.
Lips: The distance between Hulk’s nose and the length of his upper lip has progressively shortened over the three films. Again, there is a difference between trailers, but it may be because of the emotions being conveyed because they are looking really close to Mark’s now. (No, I don’t think he got botox!)
Eyebrows: People have been having a good time pointing out how manicured Hulk’s eyebrows are. There’s no denying those caterpillars got tweezed, waxed or threaded because they are cleaned up and shaped–maybe more than Mark’s. This didn’t come across in the first trailer but is somewhat evident there as well. The Green Gladiator is looking glam! When on Sakaar, get the spa visits and bling written into your contract, too!
Forehead, Attitude, Hair: The brow bones themselves are still heavy, but Hulk’s forehead is less sloped and ape-like. He’s also carrying himself taller–we were promised he’d be strutting his stuff after all. The shorter haircut shows this off better, too. It’s nice that they’ve let both Bruce and Hulk go gray. I know people will grouse because they think they “look old,” but one of the really smart decisions the MCU made was to let Banner finally grow up and try to evolve past the pattern of suppressing and “curing” Hulk until there’s a blowup and Bruce runs. Age of Ultron used this struggle as a setback that conveniently got them out of the way for Civil War. If you want to read my extensive meta on this, the link is in the note below. Anyway, Hulk is apparently the one who chose the military fade or “high and tight” for the convenience and most likely to also contrast with Bruce’s Age of Ultron curls. (Mark’s pics traumatized me. Go read my meta.)
Eyes: If you’ve been watching carefully since The Avengers in 2012, it’s apparent we were seeing two types of Hulk: the one who transitioned when Bruce was angry, scared, and under Loki’s staff’s influence on the Helicarrier and the much calmer one who took instruction and became a hero. Both had green eyes, but the look was different. There has a definite shift toward Hulk having eyes that were closer to brown than green in Age of Ultron with the exception of when he is possessed by Wanda and rampages through Johannesburg. For that sequence, Hulk’s eyes and face were reddened to show the mind control, and he reverts back to normal coloring just as Tony cold-cocks him and the mind control wears off. His eyes are Banner brown in Sokovia, including on the quinjet when Hulk leaves, and this appears to be the case in both Ragnarok trailers as well. Hulk’s eye color has been a very consistent indicator of both mood, control, and how close he is to Bruce.
Conclusions (so far): We’ve not even seen Thor: Ragnarok, and it’s already apparent that the Banner/Hulk dynamic is going to be coming to a head or at least take a leap forward. We can tell from Hulk’s evolving look that he is getting closer to looking like Bruce. Now that Hulk is speaking in full sentences, he has a better vocabulary and expresses more complex thoughts than some had speculated he possessed. He may have been low-verbal, but he’s never been dumb. Even with his few lines back in 2008 (“Leave me alone!”) and “Puny God!” in 2012, he’s much more on the ball than a toddler. I’m not sure what effects this will have on Bruce who has apparently been suppressed since Natasha forced him to change and Hulk left on the quinjet from Sakovia two to two and half years before. (Bruce looked to be on the ball in the Infinity War set pics, so my fingers are crossed that any ill effects will be temporary and not rock the Brutasha ship too much.) Interestingly, in the second trailer, Bruce asked, “Did I win?” and not did “Hulk” or “the other guy” win. That is a huge step away from dissassociation with Hulk on Bruce’s part, and it’s possibly headed toward some degree of integration. Mark has hinted as much and told us to expect a three-film story arc equivalent to a standalone movie, so for now, we’re still waiting to see what that first third might be on November 3rd. I’m pretty sure it will be fun!
Intellectually, I know this is to create a contrast with his look in Age of Ultron, but part of me is crying for those curls at the back of his neck that Natasha runs her fingers through. (Credit to the folks who made the gifs.)
An: so this is a little blurb for each of our avengers as royals (I didn’t include thor, t’challa or Loki cause they’re already royal) I thought of this idea and I couldn’t help myself so I started writing it and I’m so sorry guys cause this kind of got a away from me and it’s really long. I just loved the idea so much!! and there was so much to say for each one so…
King Tony, who does care about running and ruling the kingdom but is content to let Pepper, his right hand and future queen take care of those duties while he
Okay. Can we all just stop for a second and admire the Thor: Ragnorak Teaser Trailer that was released yesterday?
I love Loki. I’m pretty sure everyone in the world does, too, but if any of you guys know me at all, you would know I’ve been obsessing over Tom Hiddleston for about three years. I thought it went away over the summer, but apparently not. The feeling of giddy excitement of just seeing him on screen is undeniably still there. It didn’t matter if he appeared for a total of three seconds in the trailer, I gushed when I saw him.
Back to the actual trailer, it was awesome. Cate Blanchett looks absolutely epic in her outfit and the helmet-hat-thing. She looked even more amazing when she obliterated Mjolnir. That was a great shot. You know what else was a great shot? The head turning shot when the music really kicked in. I don’t know why, but that one second of footage along with perfectly timed music just makes me so happy.
Thor’s hair is probably the most talked about thing about this other than maybe the Hulk appearing in this movie. He looks hot with anything. That’s absolutely undeniable, but I want a dramatic scene mourning for the loss of his hair. It’s supposed to have a lot comedic elements to it, right? Then I want a Thor whining and moaning about how they cut all his hair off. I’m just saying, it seems like Thor is the type of guy who values his appearance very much, so it would be logical for him to care about his hair just as much as we do.
A story about Nesta finding out Cassian is her mate all on her own.
Feyre is still at the Spring Court, and Rhys is
preparing his armies for the war with Hybern. Cassian, whose wings have just
been healed, returns to oversee his warriors. Nesta joins him to learn more
about the unnatural strength her new fae body is harboring.

find when she looked at Cassian. He was utterly, horribly dangerous.

had been subjected to dehumanizing, outrageous circumstances, to brutal fights
between soldiers, to foul words she had never even heard before, to blood, to
taken her months to accept Cassian’s offer to come here. Months in which she
had to adjust to her new and strange body, to all the new sounds she could hear
and to this sudden strength in her bones. Elain, her darling sister, struggled
with her new found powers as well- but she dealt with it much better than
was not here in the Illyrian Camp. She was in Velaris, where Amren- that
strange, dangerous creature Nesta avoided as best as she could- had offered Elain
to train her personally. Rhys had looked like he had seen a ghost when Amren
had approached Elain; from what he told Nesta afterwards, such a thing had
never happened before. And now her gentle sister and that beast in fae form
disappeared into the mountains all day long and never talked about what exactly
they did. The rest of the time, Elain dreamt of her mate- the red- haired one,
Lucien- and asked questions all day long. Did anybody know him? Had anybody
talked to him? How did it work, the mating bond? Was he hurt? Was he sad? The
day Mor finally told her the story of his lover’s death and the part Lucien’s
family played in it, Elain closed herself in her rooms all day and refused to

Nesta had was rage. Sometimes it was hot and bright; other times, it grew
frosty and hard, and then there were days were she practically swam in it, all
liquid and sticky and disgusting. She had broken two vases on accident, had
punched through a door when she only wanted to knock. She had passed her days
in the marble halls of the House of Wind and felt nothing, tired and
all the time, something in the back of her mind tried to tell her something. It
was like searching for a name she had forgotten, the answer to a question that Nesta
had been asking for a long time…it was on the tip of her tongue, that something, but she pushed it back on
purpose, shut her feelings of, and tried to never think about it.
finally, there was Cassian. Dangerous, handsome Cassian. Not just because of
his hulking size, the wild hair, his loud laugh and brutish grin; no, he was
dangerous because he got under Nesta’s skin like no one ever had before. He was
dangerous because around him, being fae suddenly didn’t seem so bad anymore. Because
he was the only one who got a smile out of her with his impossible remarks, his

ever admit that. But she liked it.

her life, she did not have to worry. For the first time in her life, she felt
strong and powerful. It had always been Feyre,
the skilled one, the brave one. She, Nesta, had closed herself off, had tried
to protect Elain by building a wall around herself. And that wall had been
there because she knew that without it, she was nothing. She had nothing. The
only day she had ever physically fought somebody
had been that day with Thomas…

watched Cassian stalk in her direction, ready to strike again. He looked like a

eyes. Only the cold intent to hurt her. To test her strengths, her weaknesses.

pit with equal eagerness and then it was all swords and clashing and muscles
and sweat. Something else glittered in Cassian’s eyes when she brought her
sword down without restraint. It almost looked like pride.

blow to her sword made her loosen the grip on its hilt. Another blow- she lost
the grip. The sword slipped out of her hand and fell to the ground. Nesta
stumbled back, trying to catch her breath. She had to think. Fast. She still
had a small dagger- but that would do no good against Cassian’s blade. And if
she tried to pick her sword up again, he’d have her on the ground in seconds.

mouth- but Nesta was sure that that was what he was saying. She somehow just

Darling. Cassian knew that term got her
blood boiling. He’d used it in almost every sentence when she refused to talk
to anyone back in Velaris, not to Mor, not to Rhys. Only he had gotten a
response out of her, with his infuriating, mocking darling.

Or are you afraid of a challenge?”

course, challenging Cassian to a fist fight was a ridiculous thing to do. Nesta
had seen him in hand-to-hand combat with other soldiers, and he was merciless.

forward. She dodged out of the way- her heart was racing again, survival
instincts taking over- but he had anticipated that move, grabbing her around
the hips with both arms and slamming her to the ground. She landed right in the
mud. His weight pushed down on her- she’d never get him off her like that-

was strength in her she had not yet tested. So she grabbed his shoulders and
just pushed as hard as she could- put
all the resting rage, all the resting hate into her arms- and suddenly Cassian flew
through the air and landed on his back a few feet away. The disbelief on his
face when he propped himself up on his elbows almost made Nesta laugh.

“You threw away your sword when you had
the advantage”, Nesta told him. “I’m not forced to make the same mistake. There
are no rules here.”

voice- like he was talking to an adored pet, a beloved old friend, someone he
couldn’t ever get tired of- someone he-

am an Illyrian warrior. I have been trained in combat for five hundred years.
I’ve fought in wars against unspeakable foes, I’ve battled the best warriors

“The cauldron gave you more than he gave your sister. You are stronger than
anyone I know. You might be stronger than me.”

might go out of his mind. “I saw the smile right on your face before you pushed
me! You loved using your full strength. Usually, when I have someone pinned
down, they have no business grinning.”

themselves pinned down beneath you

Cassian laughed quietly and moved closer to her- so close she felt his breath
tickling her cheeks. “If I had you pinned

you busy moaning and begging throughout it all.”

sure that Cassian was needed elsewhere. How he was able to carve so much time
out of his schedule for her, with the threat of Hybern looming over them, she

with himself and his actions- they way he never seemed to question himself, the
way he carried himself, every inch the commander of Rhys’ armies. Maybe Nesta
