Watching Stan’s expressions during Gideon rises is just so painful. You can see that he’s just frantically trying to think of a way to get the Shack back because he can’t let the portal fall into the wrong hands. When he gives up and sends the twins home, he’s not just giving up on having Dipper and Mabel stay with him, but he’s giving up all hope of getting his brother back.

I really don’t know how I’m going to get through the next episode because the series just gets sadder the more we find out about Stan.

Things I want in Captain America: Civil War
  • An opening scene of Bucky Barnes fighting a bear
  • A mixup of the Winter Soldier and Captain America themes 
  • Bucky bun
  • Sam Wilson divebombing people. Like, scouting high out of sight and freaking peregrine falconing onto their heads at 200+ mph
  • More character growth for Natasha. Possibly with her ending up at the undisputed team leader. Bar none
  • Bucky joining the Avengers
  • Steve being happy
  • Wanda/Vision
  • Natasha/Bucky
  • Steve is a single pringle but happy
  • Smiling Bucky
  • More of Natasha crushing people’s throats with her thighs
  • T'challa getting ridiculous camera shots that insinuate every other second just how freaking good-looking he is and how hard it is for the camera crew to ignore it
  • Natasha and Steve being bros and having tons of Real Talk when things get bad
  • More of Natasha trying to set Steve up with people
  • Natasha ending the movie by actually saying “AVENGERS: ASSEMBLE”
  • Rhodey and Sam being flight bros. Showing off their flight capabilities. Having competitions to see who can fly better.
  • The Vision floats harmlessly by, unimpeded by physics
  • Wanda with moments of grief about Pietro. Possibly to parallel Steve’s about Bucky
  • Laughing Steve
  • The Vision trying to wear street clothes. 
  • Natasha and Wanda being cool, red-headed warriors together. Sharing makeup.  Fist-bumping
  • Lots of sharing of the shield. Like, everyone picks it up at some point or another
  • Steve/Happiness

But imagine, Stan sitting by himself after he tells everyone about his past. He’s upset, and trying really hard to keep himself together, but he’s not doing a good job. Mabel sits next to him, and tries to cheer him up, but nothing seems to work. Then she pulls out this outlandishly pink handkerchief that is embroidered with cats and pigs and covered in sequins and glitter. The sight of it alone makes Stan smile. He takes it and asks “You always carry this handkerchief with you?” “Only for emotional emergencies like now. It’s hard to be sad when your face is covered in glitter and kittens.”  Stan laughs as he wipes his face with it.“Ya know, you’re right. I feel better already. Thanks, sweetie”
