the avengers are terrible role models

fics i need after watching homecoming:
(This is spoilery and i don’t think i can do a read more on mobile. Sorry!)

- after Peter is finally the one to reject tony, tony becomes the definition of helicopter dad, because he said more hands on mentoring. He meant it. Poor Peter can’t catch a break between being grounded by may, surprise coffee study dates with new dad tony, training weekends upstate, remedial school for being tardy all the damn time, and mj getting suspicious. Peter is elated but oh so exasperated. Weren’t you a really busy guy tony???

- how tony got his groove back! I.e. the backstory behind his cleanup company, the weapons vault place, selling the tower, redoing the avengers facility, healing, AND HIS RECONCILIATION WITH HIS BEST GIRL AHHHH

- dummys New Life

- MJ the social justice conspiracy theorist kidnapping Ned and wringing peters secret from him.

- peters ptsd from ALMOST DYING LIKE A LOT.

- happy and tony having that Very Emotional talk

- tony foisting Peter off on happy because he’s convinced he’s a terrible dad.

- TONY BEING A GOOD DAD OK I NEED TONY AND PETER BEING PALS AND HANGING OUT AND LEARNING AND TRAINING AND TONY OVERWHELMED BY THE PURE GOOD THING HE HAS FOUND ABD IS NURTURING AND PETER FINDING A WORTHY HANDS ON ROLE MODEL WHOSE THERE WHEN HE NEEDS HIM BECAUSE HE’S A KID AND JUST WHAT IF MAY IS BUSY ONE DAY AND TONY PICKS HIM UP FROM SCHOOL O.K. JUST J U S T

- aaaand peter and pepper having a relationship too

Steve/Tony Fic Recs - Personal Favorites

The Act of Creation Will Be Your Salvation by scifigrl47 [M, 85k]

When Tony Stark was seventeen years old, he built his first AI. On that day, he ceased to be his father’s creation, and became a creating force in his own right.

That one act likely saved his life, and not always in the most obvious ways.

All the Time in the World (Will Never Be Enough) by Crematosis [M, 26k]

The first time Steve is sent into the timestream to save Tony, the mission is a complete disaster. Tony isn’t an easy person to protect. But Steve is up for the challenge.

Because sometimes, even time-traveling, badass supersoldiers need saving.

I

am personally insulted 

by the fact that Black Widow 

Isn’t on 

a single one of these school supplies I saw at Target.

Or this hat 


Or in this collection of Avenger dolls 

I could keep going 


There are barely any female superheroes as it is, and it makes me really sad that Black Widow isn’t being represented. She’s a great role model of confidence for girls. She’s powerful but also emotional. She’s been through terrible things and made a lot of mistakes and she’s still trying to change and make up for those. By putting her on the sideline we also put strength, courage, vulnerability, and female empowerment on the sideline. And that is unacceptable.
