ten years from now

6

TEN YEARS AGO:  Exactly five weeks from now (September 28) marks the tenth anniversary of Robert Downey Jr. being officially announced to play Tony Stark in Marvel Studio’s first-ever film effort, Iron Man.  

Here are some of the reactions (from AICN)–

(The last one is somewhat ironic in that the large, puppy-dog eyes have since become a trademark feature of MCU!Tony.)

(ALSO: To be fair, many of the other reactions were pretty enthusiastic and recognized the destiny-like casting, given RDJ’s personal history and Tony’s own.)

Anyway– happy anniversary (in five weeks)!

My grandma asked me today, “Ten years from now, do you want to have to admit that you chose to be an abomination to God?”

My answer?

“Ten years from now, I hope to be happily married, with a beautiful daughter, and a good career. I hope to donate what I can, and work at the soup kitchen every Christmas. I hope that ten years from now you will see that love is never an abomination. Love is just simply love.”

One day, you will find an old picture of me and you will feel your heart beating faster than ever before.

You will wonder If my smile still looks the same and are my eyes still bright as they used to be.

You will try to remember the sound of my voice and it will hurt like hell when you realize you can’t no matter how hard you try.

You will look at the picture and wonder do I still drink my morning coffe with no sugar and do I still smoke more than you.

You will wonder what my life is like and if I still remember your name.


And you will put that picture away knowing you’ll look at it again everytime you wish you were 17 again.

—  I will remember your name

-“hey let’s all promise that in ten years from today, we’ll meet again and see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into.”

-“yeah!”

-“great, what time do you wanna meet?”

-“you mean ten years from now?”

-yeah"

-“well let’s meet in the morning, so we could make a day of it.”

-“okay, so what it is it? 9 or 9:30?”

-“let’s say 9, that way we can be here by 9:30”

-“no, let’s say 9:30 and we’ll be here 9:30. we’re gunna be in our late 20’s i can see why we can be anywhere on time,”

-“okay settled, 9:30 it is.”

“ I like to think about the first law of thermodynamics, that no energy in the universe is created and… none is destroyed. None is destroyed. That means that every bit of energy inside us, every particle will go on to be a part of something else. Maybe live as a dragonfish, a microbe, maybe burn in a supernova ten billion years from now. And every part of us now was once a part of some other thing - a moon, a storm cloud, a mammoth. A monkey. Thousands and thousands of other beautiful things that were just as terrified to die as we are. We gave them new life. Good one, I hope.”
