Tony: Hey, don’t tell Thor because he looks like he’s going to fall over, but that’s as much fun as I’ve had since I actually went to Dungeons and Dragons summer camp.
Steve: You were amazing up there.
Tony: I’m sorry about that elf lady.
Steve: I’m sorry about the things I said before this happened. It’s–it’s just so hard to put away all the things that happened between us.
Tony: All those things… All the things I said and did–I’m–I’m so, so sorry. I know that’s not enough, but I hope you will allow me the chance to earn your friendship back. I don’t deserve it… I just hope you let me. I’m not half as good at–at anything as I am when I’m doing it next to you. And that’s the truth.

That time Faiza’s parents were attacked and her father kidnapped by Dracula.

Faiza: We have to find him! I feel like I was…playing at soldiers…when–
Brian: This is the job. This is what we take on as “super heroes”. It’s not your fault. It’s Dracula’s fault. They were protected as well as anyone could have been. Someone must have had…well…access.

I feel like Brian just probably gives really good hugs.


Luke Cage’s reaction to seeing Steve Rogers alive again.

Steve: Thanks, Lucas.
Luke: Is that–?! Are you–?!
Bucky: It’s him.
Steve:I’m back. Whoa!
Luke: Sorry. But I mean, what the hell?
Steve: It’s a story.
Luke: No @#$%
Steve: What were you doing here? It’s not safe here. You’re supposed to be at the safehouse with Jessica.

Steve is so awkward about how happy everyone is to see him alive again, it’s kind of adorable.

Also, Luke went back to Steve’s destroyed apartment for baby Dani’s favorite pacifier. ♥

plot twist: the moments in the civil war trailer where everyone’s running at each other isn’t to fight, but to hug. there are epic mid-air hugs. it’s amazing. bruce and thor show up with ice cream. they all punch general ross into the concrete. they have a party at stark tower. natasha can lift the hammer. no one is surprised. clint makes an awesome cake. everyone is surprised. credits. post credits of steve and tony working together to make the elevator lift mjolnir. real credits.


Everything was wrong, nothing was going right and everything was just so broken. Stiles could always tell when you needed a bit of comfort; you never had to tell him. He really was a superhero.

He hugged you tightly, cradling you like a small child, as he whispered that you’d get through this and that he would help you.

“It’s all crumbling, Stiles.” You whispered, “Everything’s going wrong.”

“It won’t be going wrong forever,” he reminded you, “It’ll start to get better soon, I promise.”


Ellis: Mind control? I remember everything now. That man with the suit wanted to talk to us about you. He brought these people with him.
Jill: They looked into our eyes…and suddenly everything was different. We were different.
Cessily: Mom, dad…I just wanted you to accept me…
Jill: By forcing us to?
Ellis: And accept what? That our daughter isn’t human? That she travels with people who make us change our minds? It might be best if you stayed at that school next time you have a break.
Cessily: Is this true? Were they really–
Brian: Yeah after we turned Kingmaker in, I went through his Rolodex. I found some listings for a couple of low-level telepaths. I’m sorry, Cess.
Cessily: I should have known there was no way they’d just suddenly accept me. But I was so happy, I didn’t see it. I was so naive.
Brian: They’re the ones who did something wrong. You’re their daughter. It shouldn’t require mind control.
