The difference between Iron Man and some other movies is that there’s no spider bite; there’s no magic bullet where a hero is born. We had to build him. We wanted people to remember that there’s a person inside that suit, and it will hurt if he falls
Don’t know where I read it but this shit hit me like a train.
J-14 All Access behind the scenes of Spider-Man: Homecoming
Tom Holland plays a young Peter Parker who’s just settling into his role as Spider-Man. In the Movie, we’ll watch him struggle to balance his every day life with his desire to prove his crime-fighting skills, so of course, Tom got to do lots of cool stunts, like you see on the left. “I had to jump off this 35-foot platform,” he reveales only to J-14. Wow! And Tom will never forget filming the scene below because of of one very special visitor. “It was the day Granny Tess came to visit me on set,” he dishes. “She was so happy to see her grandson doing his thang!” Aww!
Laura Harrier plays Peter’s love interest, Liz Allen. “Tom is so funny and charming,” she gushes. “"It made it really easy and natural to create the chemistry between Liz and Peter!”
Warnings: so much fluff you’ll cringe (its bad you guys)
Author’s Note: this is[cringe i apologize]for the song challenge for February! It’s based off of Moving Too Fast from The Last Five Years. The theme for this month was love/fluff, so here it is. I hope you enjoy it ;)
“And then, Mr. Stark said he would upgrade my suit and basically be my mentor! Isn’t that awesome!”
Peter heard you giggle on the other end of the phone. “That is awesome, Pete! I am really, really happy for you.”
His lips curled as he glanced down at the pink and white daisies in his hands, bouncing on his toes as he exhaled in content.
“Hey, you should go check your front door,” Peter smirked while he took a few steps back from your doormat.
“Whyyy…?” you intoned, the sound of you opening your door appearing through the phone. “What are you up to?”
Peter gasped, “W-what? Me? Up to something? Never!”
You shook your head with a grin before you opened your door, revealing a well dressed smiling dork in a suit holding a bouquet of flowers.
“Hey, Pete, I gotta go,” you whispered into the phone, “There’s some weird guy at my front door with flowers. I think he might be Spider-Man.”
He snorted before replying, “I wonder why he’s there. Maybe it’s because he wants to know if you would escort the lucky nerd to a party?”
You bit your lip and brought your hand to your chin, acting like you were thinking hard about it. “I don’t know, Pete. Do you think he wants it to be like a date?”
“If that’s what you want,” he said with hopeful eyes.
“Okay, I’ll let you know what happens,” you said before hanging up on the phone. Crossing your arms, you sighed and tilted your head to the side as Peter placed his phone in his pocket and straightened his shoulders. “Hi.”
“Hi,” Peter chuckled, handing you the daisies.
“Thank you for the flowers, they are beautiful. But considering I have been seeing someone for the past few weeks, I don’t know if I can accept.”
Peter shrugged and nodded his head, “As long as he treats you right.”
“He does,” you confirmed and leaned close to Peter, “He’s kind of a superhero.”
“Well,” he licked his lips and leaned closer to you so that your faces were inches apart. “Maybe I can change your mind.”
“I don’t know,” you teased, nudging his forehead with yours, “Maybe if you asked me to be your girlfriend?”
Peter laughed and closed the distance between the two of you while you wrapped your hand around his neck to pull him closer. His arms rested in the small of your back and you lifted your leg up behind you, leaning backward as your lips continued to move in sync.
He pulled away with a dorky grin, “(Y/n) (L/n), will you be my girlfriend?”
You bit your lip and wiggled your eyebrows. “When did you become so smooth, Pete? I’ve known you for quite some time and you’ve never been able to compliment a girl without stuttering. I applaud you on that.”
He chuckled and shrugged, clasping his hands together that were still resting on your back. “Will you just answer the question? I really like you and I’ve been waiting all day-”
“Well, I’ve been waiting five years, but you don’t see me complaining!” You said with a smirk.
“(Y/n),” Peter intoned, giving you a small puppy dog pout.
“Fine! I guess I’ll be your girlfriend.”
The two of you laughed and he kissed you once more. “Did I just hear an alarm start ringin’?” He hummed as you continued to kiss him. You pulled away and raised your eyebrows in confusion. “Did I see sirens go flying past?”
“Okay,” you began while patting his shoulder, “You good? Cause I don’t see or hear anything.”
“I’ve just got this singular impression things are moving too fast,” he replied with a smile.
You furrowed your brows, “Like a good fast or a bad fast?”
“A good fast! I just didn’t expect all these good things to happen so fast…”
“Well,” you straightened your shoulders and rested your arms on his, “good things happen to good people. Just keep being the amazing, awesome hero that you are and who knows what’ll happen?”
“Maybe you’ll marry me.”
You choked, “Look, I like you a lot, Pete. But you just asked me to be your girlfriend. So, good job at being ridiculously cheesy right there.”
“I’m kidding, I’m kidding!”
But he wasn’t. If only he knew that fifteen years later, he would be waiting in a tux down at the end of the aisle for you.
Okay no. I just watched the Spiderman trailer again and right after Tony takes the suit away we get Peter saying “I screwed up” and then immediately aunt may “you need to stop carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders” and holy shit okay Peter learning that mistakes are not there to rip apart your life with guilt but to learn from. Peter learning that mistakes are a fact of life but you aren’t defined by them. Peter learning to forgive himself for messing up and still having the courage to go out and do the right thing. Tony watching this kid that he wanted to be better than himself go out there and be a superhero even though he made mistakes. Tony watching a kid make mistakes and wanting to scream but feeling somehow so goddamn proud when Peter picks himself up and dusts himself off and says “I’ll be better next time.” Tony learning that some things are out of his control. Tony learning that he can’t save everyone but goddamn it trying is what makes a superhero. Tony learns all this through Peter because no way would he ever spare any sympathy for himself. But for Peter? Through Peter? He might actually learn to like himself.
