Look, I know what most of you think and I know it’s 99.9% impossible, but I want Tony to reach out and touch Steve’s beard and say something dumb by way of greeting in IW, and I want Steve to light up, and I want them to proceed by kicking ass together.
I see the sporadic “But they won’t be ok in IW with each other!” post in the tags and I just have this overwhelming “I don’t give a fuck” reaction. I feel like I’ve suffered enough, and will not put myself thru more by replacing my beard-touching fantasies with some kind of realistic tough talk between them 5-6 months before the actual movie.
I find the #not-steve-friendly tags in ao3 stony fics ridiculous, by the way.
Sure, CW gave us very little, if anything, but if you ask me, fic should be a bit more creative than that.
MCU for me was a gateway to this fandom. I know I’m not the only one. I’m not letting it go on account of some bad characterization.
Letting it influence your output (posts,content - any kind of) so negatively, in my opinion, is doing that.
