Man Up

by reddit user Pippinacious

When the bookstore at the mall put up its help wanted posters, I jumped at the chance to put in my application. Between being an avid reader who had practically lived amongst the store’s shelves in high school and a broke community college student taking a semester off to save money, it seemed still customer service.

In a lot of ways, Steve and Tony rely on each other: We’re two sides of the same coin, fighting for the same thing just with very different approaches, but neither one of us are complete. In a way, we need the other person. Reconciliation is necessary but probably not easy to come by.
— 

Chris Evans on Steve rogers & Tony Stark relationship in Avengers Infinity War - USA TODAY

“I think I would just cut the wire”

Let’s talk about this line. In Avengers, Steve tells Tony he wouldn’t “lay down on a wire” to let somebody else crawl over him. In other words, he accuses him of not being able to sacrifice himself (btw what kind of insult is that, Steve?? It’s not something to accuse somebody of?? But that’s a different subject). We all know it’s not true, as Tony himself proved many times. Carrying the nuke through the wormhole is probably the clearest evidence of that – and a direct contradiction of Steve’s accusation. Maybe the dialogue itself was put there just to emphasize Tony’s sacrifice later in the movie. To me, though, it’s something more. “I think I would just cut the wire.” It’s Tony’s way of looking at problems.

It’s what he did in Iron Man 3 when Rhodey said “We gotta make a decision. We can either save the president, or Pepper. We can’t do both.” The choice was to save someone very important to Tony or someone very important to the country. Which option did he choose? Both. He sent a remote suit to the president’s plane, all the while being on a boat, heading towards Pepper’s direction. He cut the wire.

It’s what he did when one of those living-bomb-guys caught Harley. Tony could either give the man the information he wanted or sacrifice the boy. Which option did he choose? Neither. He gave Harley a hint to use that anti-bullies device which helped him escape. He cut the wire.

It’s exactly what he did when he created the first suit in that cave! He could either build a weapon for the terrorists or die. What option did he choose? Neither. He used his brilliant mind to escape. He cut the wire.

Heck, even Tony’s response to Steve’s insult is cutting the wire in a way. Steve probably didn’t even expect a response at all. I mean, neither “no, I would do that” or “you’re right, I wouldn’t” was a good thing to say in that moment. Without hesitation, Tony chose a third option.

Of course, when he cannot find his own solution, when he is unable to cut the wire, he is more than ready to lay down on it. We’ve seen that, I’ve already mentioned it. The point is, the sacrifice is not always necessary and he knows it. Presented with a choice to save someone and save himself, he’d rather find a way for them all to survive. Laying down on the wire may be noble, but cutting it is just freaking smart. He uses his mind, his technology, to create a third option when there are only two. His mind is his superpower.

It’s not really surprising, then, that he worked so hard to create Ultron. Can you see? The world ending, all of them dying? Steve had a simple solution: we’ll lose together. Well, thank you, Captain, I’d rather not. Tony didn’t agree to just sit there and let that happen. He used his brilliant mind, his superpower, to try to protect the Earth and everybody he loved. This time, like we all know, it didn’t turn out well. But I hope you see the pattern here.

The guy just won’t give up. Bless his heart.

From 2008- 2009, ABC aired a short lived show called Eli Stone, starring Jonny Lee Miller. Eli was a lawyer who started having hallucinations caused by an aneurysm, and realized those hallucinations might actually be visions.

Many of Eli’s visions revolved around George Michael (and all of the Season 1 episodes shared their titles with his songs). However, when he appeared in Episode 9, titled “I Want Your Sex”,  he wasn’t just a vision anymore. 

George hired Eli to represent a teen girl who played one of his songs, the titular I Want Your Sex, during an abstinence only rally at her school. During her trial, she used both facts and personal stories to explain why abstinence only education is more dangerous than safe sex education. When the lawyer for the high school claimed that the song she chose promoted sexual promiscuity, George Michael was called to explain the true meaning behind the song.

Wethersby: Mr. Michael, tell me, what inspired your song I Want Your Sex? A song, by the way, which rose to number one on the world charts, a song that helped you win a Grammy for Best Album of the Year.

George Michael: Well, it was inspired by a relationship. Like most of my work, it was autobiographical.

Wethersby: You heard Principal Ackerman describe the song as encouraging promiscuity.

George Michael: But it’s just the opposite. Ironically enough, I wrote the song about abstinence, and I was very much in love with someone at the time.

Wethersby: So how do you feel about your song being used to protest an abstinence only sex education program. 

George Michael: Well I applaud it, obviously. When I wrote it, we were in year six of the AIDS crisis, a crisis that Ronald Reagan did not even address publicly until there were over 21,000 people dead. And what the government is doing right now, funding federal programs that tell children that condoms don’t work, is killing people all over again. 

I have seen a lot of posts discussing how we lost such an important member of the LGBT community. This scene has always stuck with me, and I’m sure most people would not have had a chance to see it. Though it is through a fictional lens, George Michael is reminding us that there have been times where misinformation and government inaction made it seem wrong to have even monogamous sex with someone that you love, and that stigmatizing sex, and gay sex in particular, is dangerous. 

(Eli Stone is currently available on Hulu.)

“You’re a sweet kid, Chat. And someday Ladybug’s gonna see it too. I promise.”

OK BUT LISTEN. NO SHUT UP, LISTEN.
I will willingly toss myself at 3 headcannons:
1. Chat and Fox!Alya are totally furry bros. This BrOTP is my everything.
2. Fox!Alya is totally trying to set up Chat with LB, just like she is with Marinette and Adrien because she’s the matchmaker friend- everyone has one. They’ll be gloating at your wedding someday.
3. Fox!Alya and Nino have a Superman/ Lois Lane realationship. And with Nino being Adrien’s bro, they both totally drop everything to get him out of harms way leading to a very confused Nino and the BrOTP being all “Wait why do you care so much” “Idk why do YOU”

This show has soooooo many paralells and that set up is just perfectly ironic enough for me to looooove it. So I thought Fox!Alya saying to Chat something similar to what she told Marinette at the end of the Bubbler would be deliciously fitting.

Context: Idk, Fox!Alya is all angry and upset because of something (knowing the show something pertaining to relationships or gd Chloe, something personal she can’t really talk to him about) and Adrien (who is precious sunshine child) tries to cheer her up with goof and staff-copters into the night without a word and then cue comic.

Alya is badass and Adrien is my child. I need them to be bros and be happy. I N E E D it.

Imperio, I control…”


The feeling of sleep weighing his mind down.
His body bending to commands.
Horror at what he was about to do.
He couldn’t s t o p.


Crucio, I torture…”


Swords piercing his body.
Every nerve ending, every synapse was on f i r e.
His sanity slipping away like sand through his fingers.


Avada Kedavra, let the thing be destroyed.”


Standing in the forest.
Waiting.
Preparing.
The tip of a wand pointing his direction.
Eyes closing.
Green light exploding behind his eyelids.
F e a r.


“The Three Unforgivable Curses.” He murmured, forcing down his nausea.


Tom nodded excitedly. “Yes. Fascinating, don’t you agree?”


Harry Potter didn’t answer, instead he closed his book and rose from the library chair, murmuring a quick excuse.


Adrenalin was rushing through his veins.
He was tricked.
Sirius wasn’t held captive.


Distinctly he heard the sound of another chair scraping over the floor as he hurried past numerous bookshelves and practically dived out into the hallway.


Avada Kedavra.
After Sirius had fallen through the veil he wasn’t even aware that it was him who was screaming.
He never knew his vocal cords were able to produce such an awful sound.


His chest constricted and he stumbled against a cold wall halfway down the third corridor, slowly sinking to the floor while desperately trying to fight the onslaught of the panic attack.


Confusion.
The Triwizard Cup should have brought them straight back to the entrance of the maze.
But it hadn’t.
Too late he screamed a warning at the boy.
Avada Kedavra.
Cedric Diggory hit the ground with a gut wrenching thud.


A part of him registered the hands that clasped his shoulders and the calm voice calling his name, telling him to breathe.


He couldn’t.
Wasn’t even sure he wanted to.
The pain in his lungs was better than the screams piercing his mind or the stench of blood and death filling his nose.


Everyone was dying.
He couldn’t stop it.
He couldn’t save them.
Fred was dead.
Lupin was dead.
Everyone was-


“Harry Potter!” The exclamation was followed by a stinging pain in his cheek and automatically he sucked in a breath, blinking slowly.


Light blue-grey eyes stared at him intently, a frown etched onto pale features. “Can you hear me?”


Harry nodded, taking another, shuddering breath.


Tom sighed in relief before his expression darkened. “What was that about?”


The Boy-Who-Lived swallowed before plastering a crooked smile on his face. “N-nothing, really. I just sort of hyperventilated when I remembered that I haven’t yet finished the essay from-”


“Please don’t try to insult my intelligence, Potter. We finished that essay together yesterday.”


Oh. Right.


“And besides, you don’t exactly strike me as someone who would have a panic attack over something as trivial as that.”


Well, shit.


“Look, I-”


“Who did it?”


“What?”


The grip on his shoulders tightened to the point that it bordered on uncomfortable and cold fury shone in Riddle’s eyes. “Only someone who was subjected to those curses would have such a strong reaction to them. So who did it!?”


You did.


Harry shook his head tiredly before getting back to his feet rather unsteadily. “It doesn’t matter. There was a war. Those things happen. It’s in the… past.“


Tom’s scowl deepened.
His eyes glinting murderously. But somehow he didn’t think that the Slytherin’s anger was directed at him.


The grip on his shoulders tightened just a fraction before sliding down and back to his sides, his expression smoothing over until the only indication of his fury was the way he clenched his jaw.


“Alright. I won’t push the matter.” He said eventually and Harry sighed in relief, only for the air to get stuck in his throat a second later. “But…”


Here it comes.


“I promise you that the person responsible is going to pay. They will beg for death and shall not receive it until I’ve broken their every bone and shredded absolutely every ounce of their sanity. Nobody touches that which belongs to me.”


How very ironic.


Oh yes.
There was definitely a time when he wished for that.


But now?


There was suddenly a heavy weight on Harry’s chest and he grimaced.

Harry Potter, the Boy-Who-Lived, didn’t wish to kill Tom Riddle, Dark-Lord-in-Training, anymore. The would-be murderer of his parents, his friends, and himself.


And it made him absolutely sick.

Do you ever think about how out of sorts Andrew must have been when he first kissed Neil?

We’re all very aware of Andrew’s iron control and how important his self-control is to him, and when you think about how out of sorts he was to just lean in and kiss him, it just makes me emo, even more so when you take Nora’s words on when Andrew started thinking Neil was interesting.

“Neil kept looking at him like that, even when Andrew told him to stop. Neil said things he wasn’t supposed to, things he wasn’t allowed to say, kept blurring the line between here and there and digging his way in where he wasn’t allowed.”

Neil keeps saying things like If it means losing you then no and you gave me a key and called it home and Andrew hates him, he hates him for making Andrew feel things—for making him feel. Andrew hates Neil because looking at Neil feels like falling and Andrew is afraid of heights.

Andrew was gradually losing his grasp on his strands of control, and every time Neil said something or looked at him like that, he felt a thread split. He hated that turmoil and he thought it was something he could come back from (and he only realized how far gone he was when he lost Neil).

And then on the rooftop he had to forcibly turn Neil’s face away, he couldn’t take it because it wasn’t supposed to be like this, he was supposed to be a side-effect of the drugs, but Andrew is clean and Neil is still there looking at him like he hung the stars and knowing him and—and.

And Neil had to be a smart-mouth again and Andrew is so done. (he’s an instigator at heart and a moronsexual, so every time Neil snaps or retorts at someone he falls a little bit more in this essay i will) His heart is going a mile a minute and he swears to himself it’s because he’s on the rooftop and not because of Neil fucking Josten.

He kisses him.

Alistair doodling Mr. and Mrs. Theirin on pieces of paper when he was alone once he started having a crush on his Warden companion, and being extra sarcastic to her because he didn’t know how to deal with those feelings, then kicking himself afterwards for being such an idiot, and Maferath’s hairy arse she’s sarcastic back she’s perfect.

Zevran giving the Warden sidelong glances when he thought they weren’t paying attention because he was confused at the emotions he was feeling towards them, thinking that if he squinted at them long enough he would come back to reality, but finding that he didn’t want to go back to reality as long as they were by his side and oh shit what had he gotten himself into.

Anders finding himself smiling in the midst of working in his clinic because Hawke drifted into his thoughts, frowning after because where in the Void had that come from, then having an internal panic attack not only because he feared what his affections would bring but what it would do to him if Hawke didn’t return those feelings, and he wanted to tear his hair out because it’s just so ugh.

Fenris trying to ward off Hawke’s blatant flirting with scowls and glares, but knows that they’re forced and he just doesn’t know how to make it stop, but finds that he doesn’t want it to because it makes him happy, and since that’s one thing he’s not sure he’s ever felt, he doesn’t want it to leave, so he lets it continue.

Sebastian straining to swallow because his throat is tight due to Hawke’s close proximity, then muttering a prayer under his breath because Maker, he just wants her closer to him, so close that he can feel her own heartbeat and see if it’s racing just as much as his was because sweet Andraste he couldn’t deny that he liked her.

Cullen growling and grumbling because he couldn’t keep up with the Herald’s antics, and Maker’s breath his neck was going to become raw because he rubbed it so much with every smile she shot his way and every time he heard her laugh and he needed to just focus on his work but he couldn’t, because she was a vital member of those he worked with and he couldn’t help but silently admit that he liked it that way.

Iron Bull laying with the Inquisitor in his arms, and he’s staring at them, memorizing every curve and angle of their body and shit, he knows he’s falling for them but the question is if they’re falling for him back and in that moment he feels not fear, exactly, but anxiety, because for once in his life he really fucking hopes that they do so he can just get on with things but with them at his side and vice versa.

Dorian huffing because he finds that he’s reading his book but none of the words sink in, and he has to reread it two, three more times and fasta vass it’s the damn Inquisitor he keeps thinking about, and it’s worse because he finds himself pretending to read his book when he hears the Inquisitor approaching so it looks like he’s not acutely aware of their presence.

Blackwall keeping an eye out for things that remind him of the Herald, everything from a pretty wildflower or a rock smoothed and shaped by water, then creeps into her tent and places it on her pillow or in her pack, and anxiously waits for when she sees them, hiding his glowing smile under his beard when she finally does.

Solas shaking his head as he tried to clear his thoughts of the Herald’s scent, of the poems he unknowingly composed about her until he found himself reciting them in his head whenever he looked at her, and the feeling of companionship she brought to him was so wrong because it was his fault she was in such a position, but he can’t stop, and fenhedis lasa his stomach fluttered with the barest of touches she gives him.

Bonus:

Varric setting his quill down because the Inquisitor’s coming his way, and he knows he’s lying to himself when he says that he just likes chatting with them, that it’ll be more for his story, but as he’s describing them, writing their very essence down on parchment, he finds that only a lover could have depicted them the way he had, and well, shit, he knows he’s a gonner, but he’s not gonna be telling anybody about it anytime soon.

Preference-Defenders React to Your Pain Transferring Powers

A/N: These are the characters I am most familiar with and these are the ones I think I can write best. If in future preferences you want me to include other characters let me know and I will do my best to learn about them. 

Matt Murdock(Daredevil):

Originally posted by moan-s

Matt is more concerned with the implications of your powers than the fact that you actually have them. He worries that a lot of people could get killed very easily if they try to confront you. He tries to get you to quit the vigilante life, but you refuse. His insistence get’s very annoying eventually so you have to have a very stern conversation(yelling match) about why he needs to stay out of your business. 

He eventually concedes when you promise over and over again that you’re very careful about which hits you let land. However, despite saying that he’s going to back of, Matt still finds himself in your vigilante territory and awful lot. 

Jessica Jones:

Originally posted by jones-jessica

Jessica isn’t really surprised. She’s seen a lot of crazy stuff and you’re just another person on the list. You’re drinking when she finds out and she’s a little tipsy. She keeps asking you random questions like whether you can get vaccines or get surgery. Half way through the night she insists on toasting your “awesome powers that make you invincible.” The rest of the bar joins along even as you insist that she’s blowing it out of proportion. 

“So can you get drunk? Or does the bartender get drunk?” she asks, leaning a little too close to you. 

“No I can still get drunk. The bartender isn’t trying to hurt me or anything.”

“What about poison? Can you be roofied.” 

“I’m not sure.”

“I hope you don’t find out.” You nudge her drink farther away from her hand. 

“I think you’re done for the night.” 

Luke Cage:

Originally posted by marvelsdefenders

Luke is actually very interested in your powers. When he sees you fighting for the first time he spends the next couple of days thinking about it. The number one thought in his head is that maybe you’re one of the few people who could actually hurt him without the need for fancy high tech equipment. 

One night he catches sight of you running after some bad guys that are running away clutching their stomachs. 

“Hey you!” he yells across the street, his voice carrying in the still air. 

You whip around and stare back at him as the men you were chasing run farther away. You slowly rotate so that you’re fully facing him. You know who Luke Cage is and you know exactly why he’s calling you out in the middle of the night. There’s some unspoken agreement that the fight that’s about to happen isn’t personal and is more of a game than anything real. 

It turns out that your powers cancel each other out. Him punching you only results in a dull pressure in the places he hits. He can throw you large distances, but you’ve come to expect that as your only weakness. When you punch him it’s like punching a brick wall, but it doesn’t actually hurt. An hour after the fight starts you both stand in front of each other breathing hard. 

“It was nice to meet you Luke Cage.” you say. He nods and the two of you part ways not knowing that you’ll be on the same team soon. 

Danny Rand(Iron Fist):

Originally posted by theavengers

Ever since you joined the Defenders Danny has been pestering you about sparring with him. He claims it would be a bonding experience. So that the two of you could become familiar with each other’s fighting technique. You think it’s a little strange that he’d want to spar with you when every hit he lands will only hurt him, but you go along with it. He’s been a Defender longer than you so he must know what he’s doing. 

Only two minutes into the spar Danny is on the ground clutching his chest. 

“Did you seriously not know what my abilities were. You had to agree with everyone else to even let me into your group.” 

You extended a hand and helped the man up. “Matt, Luke and Jessica all loved you so much. I couldn’t just say no. But hey that’s a pretty neat power.” For someone who just received a punch to the chest only Iron Fist could dole out, Danny seemed very excited. 

“Let’s go again. This time I’m ready.” 

Frank Castle(The Punisher):

Originally posted by calif0rnia-lovers

Frank is unfortunate enough to find out about your powers the hard way. You try to get in the middle of his newest mob boss hunt and he is not happy about it. He’s been stalking this guy for weeks, waiting for the time to attack and rid the Earth of his kidnapping, smuggling, black mailing ass. Right before he can take the shot, you jump out at the mob boss and scatter his lackeys. 

While you’re tying the mobster up, Frank marches towards you like a bulldozer that is absolutely not going to stop. 

“The hell are you doing?” He yells stepping right up to and grabbing a chunk of your shirt in his hand. 

“Taking down a mob boss and stopping you from killing more people. I think it’s a win-win,” 

“I’ve given you a break the past few times you’ve gotten in my way, but if you don’t cut it out you’re going to get hurt.” 

“You can try.” 

He takes your challenge seriously and you end up pummeling the Punisher. By the end of it he’s lying on the ground chuckling to himself. 

“Didn’t know you were some kinda voodoo person.” 

“Maybe you should have learned a little more about me before going all out.” 

You feel a little bad about beating him so badly so you take him out to dinner afterwards. The two of you continue to subtly threaten each other as you eat pancakes and drink coffee. This is not the end of you and the Punisher butting heads. 

Foggy Nelson:

Originally posted by ffrankcastle

You and Foggy are eating dinner at the office in silence. Out of the corner of your eye you can see Foggy glancing at you repeatedly. 

“What’s up?” you ask wiping the food off your fingers. 

“So you’re part of Matt’s super crime fighting force right?”

You chuckle. “The Defenders? Yes I am.”

“So what’s your power?” he asks pointing his plastic knife at you. 

“Basically if someone tried to stab me, they would actually stab themselves.” Foggy stares at you in silence with his mouth slightly open. 

“I thought that the bullet proof guy was the coolest out of you guys, but I think that’s a little better.” 

“Wow. I’m so flattered,” you joke taking another bite. 

Karen Page:

Originally posted by akamatthewmurdock

It takes Karen a long time to process exactly what’re telling her. She was shocked enough to find out that Matt is the feared Daredevil, but now she had to accept the fact that another one of her friends was essentially unkillable. 

She is very appreciative that you told her of your own free will instead of her finding out by accident. She’s very curious about the extend of your powers and she wants to ask a lot of questions, but she restrains herself. She let’s herself ask a few questions every now and then, but those questions only lead to more and more questions. 

Burnouts, Booze, and Babes

Summary: Taehyung and Jeongguk are just two small town best friends, getting drunk too often and making big plans they’ll probably never achieve. Taehyung takes it upon himself to teach Jeongguk all of the proper ways to have sex, and Jeongguk swears he’s just hanging around because Taehyung’s good in bed. Who would have thought these small town losers, who used to smoke behind the school, would become jewelers at the biggest department store in Seoul. [Pre Givenchy & Gold]
Pairing: Jeongguk x Taehyung
Word Count: 32.850
Rating: M
Warnings: too much sex, too many kinks, mentions of drug use, Taehyung calling Jeongguk so many nasty things, two bros chilling 5ft apart in a hot tub (“swear I’m not gay”), switching, uhhhh daddy kink
A/N: @blueagust and I have basically spent the last couple weeks screaming at each other about Taehyung and Jeongguk’s history from her story Givenchy&Gold, and with the little restraint I have, this happened. Lou, this is an absolute mess and I probably destroyed your entire fic timeline, but happy early Kwanza or some shit (which is totally an excuse Tae gives when he’s buying Jeon another pair of earrings.) This is not good enough for you but I hope you like it anyway!!

anonymous asked:

In what ways do we already practice anarcho-communism in every day life?

To quote David Graeber:

Whenever action proceeds “from each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs”—even if it is between two people—we are in the presence of “everyday communism”. Almost everyone behaves this way when collaborating on a common project. If someone fixing a broken water pipe says “hand me the wrench”, their co-worker will not usually say “and what do I get for it?”, even if they are working for Exxon-Mobil, Burger King or Royal Bank of Scotland. The reason is efficiency (ironic, given the conventional wisdom that “communism just doesn’t work”): if you want to get something done, allocating tasks by ability, and giving people what they need to do the job, is the most effective way to go about it.

It’s one of the scandals of capitalism that most firms, internally, operate in a communistic way. True, they don’t operate democratically. Most often they are organized by military-style chains of command. But top-down chains of command are not very efficient (they tend to promote stupidity among those on top, resentment among those on the bottom.) When cooperation depends on improvisation, the more democratic it tends to become. Inventors have always known this, start-up capitalists also, and computer engineers have recently rediscovered the principle: not only with freeware, but even in the organization of their businesses. 

This is why in the immediate wake of great disasters—a flood, a blackout, a revolution or economic collapse—people tend to behave the same way, reverting to a kind of rough-and-ready communism. Hierarchies, markets and the like become luxuries that no one can really afford. Anyone who has lived through such a moment can speak to the way strangers become sisters and brothers, and human society itself seems to be reborn. We are not just talking about cooperation.

Communism is the foundation of all human sociability. It makes society possible. Anyone who is not an enemy can be expected to respect the principle of “from each according to their abilities…” at least to some extent: for example, if you need to figure out how to get somewhere, and they can give you directions, they will. We take this so much for granted that the exceptions are themselves revealing.

i get a lot of asks along the lines of why i draw in ms paint/how i get my work so ‘loose’/not drawing with guidelines/etc so heres a hopefully uh.. coherent post about it.

the short answer is the simplicity of the program helps me be more carefree with my drawing, and using a pressure-less pen helps with the tendency to press down hard and alleviates stress on the hand/wrist

long answer: about 2015 i think? i developed really bad thyroid issues and my worst symptoms were the fatigue and hand tremors. it made doing most things difficult, including drawing. i didnt have the steady hand for lineart anymore, and i didnt have the stamina for painting.

I still wanted to draw though, just because I enjoy doing it a lot, so i started just doodling in ms paint. i didn’t really care about how it came out, i just wanted to get my ideas down and keep doing it. if you go back in my art tag you can probably see the point my work started to deteriorate, i went from doing this sort of thing

to this sorta.. barely legible scribble-y stuff over the course of a few months

it… pretty objectively looks significantly worse, but i was at the point that i stopped caring about making things look good as long as you could tell what it was and i was getting my ideas ‘on paper’. as time went on working under those circumstances started changing how i drew; my work became more gestural and loose because i couldn’t keep my hand steady, i started figuring out ways to work quicker because i couldn’t stay up drawing for very long. my focus shifted from staying on model/correct/neat to getting my ideas across and finding ways to make barely legible drawings 

nowadays i’m mostly recovered from doing it out of necessity and just draw in paint because i’ve gotten used to it, and while the whole ordeal sucked i think my work is better because of it, ironically.

obviously i don’t think developing an illness is necessary to make your art process better LOL but i think it forced me into finding shortcuts and learning to be less anal about my work

so i guess my advice would be to practice not caring so much while you’re working. it doesn’t need to be as major as completely overhauling your style. devote a bit of your drawing time to doodling completely stupid whatever comes to mind stuff. try doing 30 second drawing exercises; by forcing yourself to work under a small time frame for practice you’ll learn little shortcuts/being able to distinguish what details to pore over or not. do your best when it’s assigned/commissioned work, obviously, but not every work you do has to be a masterpiece or something that gets thousands of notes or something you need to post for others’ input at all. mindful and purposeful drawing is important, but learning to get out of your own head while working is too.

um, yeah, so we agree that Tony couldn’t possibly made a spidersuit from the scratch in between first meeting Peter in CW and confronting team cap, because there was not even a day in between those two events and Tony couldn’t possibly sit in his lab designing 500 types of webs, so you know, he definitely had it made by 90% before even meeting Peter in person

so I headcanon that spidersuit was Tony’s relaxing hobby. Since he saw first youtube video of this local spider superhero, investigated, found out he was a baby-faced pure kid on mission to help people in basically colourful pyjamas, and was like, oh well, that wont do, I am suiting him up.  

So he did his actual job, went on those SI related events, did the Avengers related jobs, and then after all that got home in his personal lab for some relaxing tinkering over a spider themed suit for the kid.

i guess he never expected that their first meeting would be about Tony needing his help.
