IDK why current Marvel is so insistent on making sure Tony has no friends ever? Historically he’s done best as a character when he’s been:
A) Having a great time with his long-time well-established friends
B) Getting support from those friends
C) Saving or being saved by those friends
Like yeah, sure, ok give me so delicious “life is pain but I must overcome” Tony Stark TM self-sacrificing behaviour, but please let him have FRIENDS while it happens? Stop vagueing about it, Marvel! Just let people say they like Tony!
Preferably to his face.
I've had a headcannon for a while now that Aro can't differentiate as easily between which thoughts are his and which thoughts he's taken from someone else. Through time the lines have blurred and some of the more eccentric traits of his are actually a combination of other people's memories
