Do you think Steve and Tony are alike because of all they trouble they get into?
it’s the trouble-seeking-ability and the stubbornness, mostly. and honestly only about 50% of the trouble either of them gets into is intentional–the rest of it just sort of happens. doc strange has been looking into curses and hexes that might make steve or tony some sort of chaos-beckoning nexus. separately is bad enough. together, it’s pretty much a guaranteed unnatural disaster.
pepper and rhodey and sam and i have an agreement where we try to keep them apart unless the city is already on fire. at that point we figure they cant make it much worse.
(please note that i said much worse. they will make it at least a little worse. try not to worry, citizens! tony stark, Patron Saint of Explosions, and steven “murderfrisbee” rogers are here to help! and bicker with each other!)
it’s a little unfortunate, because they clearly enjoy heckling each other a lot, but the destructive feedback loop is too powerful. in the name of safety, sanity, and minimal collateral damage, they must be restricted to no more than 30 minutes of face-to-face insulting banter a day. anything more than that might cause an apocalypse.

Ok, I know I’ve really been spamming about Wayward Guide but GUYS!!! Carlos Valdes is gonna be in it! He is so good on the Flash and I love that he has the time to join his friends.
Please if you don’t know about this project The Wayward Guide for the Untrained Eye is about a pair of podcast hosts who investigate corruption in a mining town and find WEREWOLVES! They wanna make a 10 episode series and the in-world podcast but they are almost halfway to their goal and there are only two weeks left!
