guys, guys, look at this, our smol Harley Keener (Ty Simpkins) is not smol anymore - he’s gotten so much bigger and taller and I swear his voice dropped even lower than Tom Holland’s (who’s in his 20s) and Ty is only like 16!
Tony is gonna see Harley like this and have a heart attack, we really need Harley back in the MCU again
“Mr. Stark?” Harley asks when he enters the workshop. Tony sighs, because how often does he have to explain to Harley that it’s Tony.
“Harley my favorite child. Hold this.” Tony says and gives Harley the black board. Of course Harley needs to be on his wall, too.
“Uhm?” Harley looks a bit overwhelmed, but takes the board anyway.
“Smile.” Tony says and a second later he has his picture. Harley looks at the board and laughs.
“So you think i’m smart?” He asks and glows, so proud is he of himself. Tony grins and then ruffles Harley’s hair.
“Course i do. Sometimes i even think you are smarter than me.” Tony grumbles, but Harley knows how he means it. Tony is incredible proud of Harley and maybe he should say that more often.
“And… i’m sorry for burning your eyebrows off.” Harley says grinning and Tony knows he is not sorry at all. It was in an experiment and Tony was just as surprised as Harley was, when the fire burned his eyebrows off.
“It’s alright. I mean they are back now and i looked stunning even without him.” Tony replies and then looks back at Harley.
“But i’m not guilt tripping people.” Harley answers and Tony laughs.
“Oh yes you do. All the time. But it’s alright and…” Tony stops. God why can’t he say it. Harley seems to know what he wanted to say and uses his damn puppy dog eyes.
“Go away.” Tony says and Harley laughs, but goes to the door for real. Tony looks after him and smiles.
“And Harley? I’m proud of you. I hope you know that.” Tony says.
Harley smiles warms his heart for the rest of the day.
