you know those photo series that are like “In The Running For The Next Spiderman/Young Han Solo/Bachelor/Prince Eric/Property Brother”
and it’s just like nine generically handsome brunet white men that might all be Henry Cavill or might all be Matt Bomer or might all be the photogenic runner guy from 2012 for all we know but it’s impossible to tell because they are just so generic?
and you know how nobody really remembers what Moist von Lipwig (slash Albert Spangler where applicable) actually looks like, they just remember the gold hat, or the glasses, or the bountiful ear hair?
what I want is an adaptation where Moist, whenever he’s being an anonymous face or The Man in the Golden Suit or Albert Spangler, is played by a series of generically handsome brunet white men who are swapped out shot-to-shot.
honestly tony builds personal relationships with machines and other inanimate objects. he never upgraded DUM-E and U’s 20-yr-old flawed software even though he gets aggravated over it. he spent decades tinkering with a vintage car that belonged to his dad. he greets broken tractors with puns and asks them to tell him what’s ailing them. he creates AI with distinctive personalities. he nicknames every single one of his armors like they’re his children. he gave the mark 42 an official introduction. “imminent arrival of your bouncing badass baby brother.” he calls his workshop a “birthing suite” he made party hats for his robots??? he nicknamed the bots
like i know everyone realizes tony loves machines but do they realize that he Loves machines. do the avengers realize tony will talk the sink disposal through its stress while fixing it. do they realize that tony has talked about his day to every piece of avengers technology that they use. again, i know that they know that tony loves tech but like do they Know. do they KNOW. DO THEY KNOW THAT EVERY PIECE OF ANYTHING THAT TONY HAS EVER GIVEN THEM IS CARRYING HIS HEART AND LONELINESS AND CRAVING FOR LOVE AND HOPE FOR REDEMPTION AND SALVATION
tony’s armor was born in fear and nightmares and RESOLVE and the arc reactor has yinsen’s ghost in it and both his AI systems are manifestations of how much he loves and misses a specific person like holy shit do people knoW??? DO PEOPLE KNOW TONY’S HEART IS ALL OVER EVERYTHING, ALL OVER ABSOLUTELY FUCKING EVERYTHING GOSH I’M JUST!!!
and i get the feeling that Robin’s earlier warning to Luffy about how alliances and betrayal go hand in hand will act as a foreshadowing of this upcoming alliance, which tbh wouldn’t really come as a surprise, especially with the way this current arc has been so far…
