lol nat

My parents HATE overwatch because it takes up our entire wifi whenever my brother goes online and when I bought myself the new Zelda my mom was like “can I watch Netflix? or are you playing” and I was like no, no don’t worry it doesn’t take up internet. and she was so relieved and started walking towards the TV in her room and I was like “you want to watch it out here? I can switch to the handheld mode” and she was so impressed that she could watch Master Chef next to me while I played my game. Nintendo is truly the family system.

it’s that time of the year again when i’m going to ask you to look all the way back to january 1st… all the things that have happened in your life since then… good things, bad things, new people you’ve met, problems solved, obstacles conquered, work situations, outings with friends, weekends at home… celebrity news?? political messes. the oscars. hollyweed the first meme of 2017… think about it… we’re at the end of the third month of the year and three months seem like such a long time. think about it, just to put it in perspective: that’s how long mcu tony stark was held hostage

I'm gonna talk about why Maria Stark is infinitely important
  • infinitely

first off, to hell with the fucking notion that 616-maria didn’t love tony and tony never realized she loved him.

the universe realizes tony is a momma’s boy

in his dreams, maria is the one trying to offer input as to how he might lead a less miserable life. (also he reaches for her and theres a fucking butterfly come the fuck on) note that we’re in tony’s head so of course his dream figures are like “you created your own problems” – the important part here is, maria is the one who gives advice

howard wanted a son to take over the name/stark industries. maria was ready to accept any sex.

also here’s something golden. tony stark says this to the demon incarnation of his father’s soul when they’re fighting in hell (i mean lol in case you needed proof howard is scum)

She loved me. Loved us both. Unconditionally. All that’s good in me, all you call “weakness” — the compassion, the caring, everything decent — I learned from herAnd that gives me the will, the need, the strength — to ultimately do — whatever’s necessary.

i know right

i really want to point to one specific part in this.

All that’s good in me… I learned from her.

now listen to me on this

to hell with the notion that tony’s heroic streak comes from howard :) ok. fuck that

sensitive boy

EVERYONE LISTEN TO ME RIGHT NOW. TONY STARK WAS A SENSITIVE BOY

i’m gonna tell you who else was sensitive

MARIA FUCKING COLLINS CARBONELL STARK WAS SENSITIVE

SEE: THE PANEL ABOVE WHERE SHE’S CRYING

SEE: THIS

like i understand that comic portrayal of women wasn’t/isn’t stellar. but at the same time – don’t do the thing where you say maria isn’t strong as a character just because she’s a woman that cries and is scared of her abusive husband after he becomes a raging alcoholic because newsflash not all women need to be SHIELD agents or superpowered physical kickers of ass in order to be worth your time. like we have no evidence that maria wasn’t a SHIELD agent like howard or whatever but even if she wasn’t (and i’d prefer it if she WASN’T) fuck the notion that women can’t be sensitive and feminine and also

fuck the idea that tony took after howard temper-wise, like

literally fuck that

stop erasing maria like. TONY HAD A MOTHER TOO HE DIDN’T SPONTANEOUSLY SPRING INTO EXISTENCE

the little boy who read about knights in the library. that’s not fucking howard stark. that’s the maria stark in tony

this. this is maria stark

and this. quiet and subdued tony stark

thiS IS MARIA STARK

TONY STARK WHO GENUINELY WANTS TO HELP YOU

TONY STARK WHO WANTS TO MAKE YOU A SURPRISE

THIS IS MARIA STARK

THIS IS MARIA STARK BECAUSE THIS IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT HOWARD TRIED TO PREACH TONY TO BE

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE IMPORTANCE OF MARIA STARK

NEVER FORGET THE FACT THAT TONY WITNESSED HIS MOTHER BEING DRIVEN TO TEARS BY HOWARD. NEVER FORGET THAT MARIA WAS TRAPPED IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP AND WAS PROBABLY DEPRESSED SHE PROBABLY HAD GOOD REASONS TO START NEGLECTING HER FAMILY DO NOT COME INTO MY HOUSE AND TELL ME MARIA STARK IS NOT IMPORTANT

LITERALLY NO ONE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN MARIA STARK

MARIA IS THE REASON WHY TONY STARK IS A GOOD PERSON BENEATH THE IRON ARMOR AND SHE’S THE REASON WHY HE PUTS ON THAT ARMOR TO DO GOOD THINGS

MARIA STARK AS HER OWN PERSON NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED IN THE COMICS BECAUSE HONESTLY WE DON’T KNOW TWO FUCKS ABOUT HER AS AN ENTITY SEPARATE FROM HOWARD AND THAT SUCKS BUT WE DO HAVE TONY STARK AND THAT’S NOT ENOUGH BUT IT’S EVEN LESS IF PEOPLE KEEP IGNORING THE FACT THAT MARIA STARK WAS, IN MANY WAYS, THE ONE POSITIVE FORMATIVE INFLUENCE TONY HAD GROWING UP oh my god i’m so mad MARIA STARK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

AND EVERYTHING “SECRET ORIGINS”!!!!! IS!!!!!!!! FUCKING BULLSHIT

IT’S FUCKING BULLSHIT because how dare you

i mean. lets go back to that quote

She loved me. Loved us both. Unconditionally. All that’s good in me, all you call “weakness” — the compassion, the caring, everything decent — I learned from herAnd that gives me the will, the need, the strength — to ultimately do — whatever’s necessary.

“She loved me. … Unconditionally.”

how dare you take this certainty away from tony

literally how in the fuck dare you

HOW DARE YOU DO THIS

this is the hallucination from fatal frontier HOW THE FUCK DARE YOU TWIST TONY’S PERCEPTION OF MARIA LIKE THAT

HOW IN THE FUCK

BUT WE ONLY DID WHAT WAS BEST” HOW IN THE FUCK DARE YOU DO THIS

HOW IN THE FUCK DARE YOU TAKE THE ONE PERSON TONY KNEW FOR SURE LOVED HIM UNCONDITIONALLY AND TWIST HIS IDEA OF HER IN SUCH A WAY THAT!!! HE THINKS!!! SHE WOULD DISPOSE OF HIM AND HIS EMOTIONS!! FOR THE SAKE!!! OF THE FUCKING GREATER GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HOW IN THE FUCK

DARE YOU DO THIS I’M SO FURIOUS

JUSTICE FOR MARIA STARK I’M SO MAD
