AND WHY DOES THIS WHALE KEEP SAYING MY NAME
so this just happened
this is a result of: cat’s gif and chats with jizzy
BEHOLD: THE SINGLE BEST THING I HAVE EVER BEEN EVEN REMOTELY INVOLVED WITH CREATING
IT IS 1 AM AND I AM IN THE DINING HALL LITERALLY SHRIEKING WITH JOY
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS THE PICTURE OF MY SOUL
I AM A GENIUS BILLIONAIRE PLAYBOY PHILANTHROPIST
AND YOU ARE JUST A WHALE
So! I got this ask, but my answer ended up becoming An Essay, and you can’t use cuts in asks, and I can’t screenshot because I am at work and this computer
is a PC and I can’t handle itblows for entirely objective reasons and certainly not because I’ve become utterly Mac dependent! THUS, we shall do it this way:
a friend of mine says she can’t get behind tony/steve because “steve rogers is too good for tony stark”, and thus far I’ve failed to persuade her otherwise. how would you change the mind of someone who feels strongly this way? thanks! :)
Hi nonnie! Thank you for sending me this, it is an awesome question and an even better, uh, distraction from doing actual work, and I am sorry that I accidentally a ship manifesto because of it :D
So, okay, LET’S TALK TONY STARK.
Fandom: Marvel movie-verse
Summary: Howard accidentally time travels to the future, Steve is excited, and jealousy is an ugly color on Tony.
Pairing: Steve/Tony, maybe Howard/Steve if you want to see it that way (and I wouldn’t blame you because I want to too)
Notes: I don’t know y’all. (Gelled hair line belongs to Cait, even though I played around with it, because they just would not argue the way they needed to to get that line out right). Also, that title, I know, not good. But I’m tired so, that’s all I’ve got. Enjoy.
They’re in the middle of a team meeting when it happens. There’s a bright flash of light, and suddenly there’s a dark haired man standing just a few feet off from Fury. Instincts kick in mostly across the board. Natasha has her wrist cartridges leveled evenly with the man’s head, and Clint is reaching for a knife. Bruce has jumped about a foot in the air and nearly tumbled out of his chair. Thor’s just tilting his head, and Tony bangs his knees on the underside of the table. Steve leaps to his feet and is standing with his shield half way to attack mode.
But no one actually makes a move. The man is obviously just as surprised to be there as they are to see him. He’s wearing a three-piece suit minus the jacket, crisp white sleeves rolled up to the elbows. His hair is ruffled, gray at the temples, and he’s got a neatly trimmed moustache. He looks younger than Tony ever saw him in real life, but there’s absolutely no doubt as to who this is.
Tony sits completely still, mostly unwilling to believe he’s actually seeing what he thinks he’s seeing. After all, the man’s been dead for over twenty years. And even without that little setback, this man looks to be only in his forties. Tony’s got to be hallucinating or something. He didn’t pour any whiskey—like, the entire bottle—into his coffee this morning, did he? Maybe he’s still dreaming.Read more
Title: Coffee Is My Cup Of Tea
Pairing: fluffy SteveTony but also general Tony
Rating: I’d say G but I’ll put PG for safety but really it’s probably not even a G.
Summary: Tony loves coffee to the point of it being an addiction. Mmm Yup.
Notes: I wrote this at work, didn’t re-read it but I’m posting it because of reasons. And Lauren. Reasons and Lauren. Mostly blaming Lauren.
sweet, sweet blame. come into my arms.
Fandom: Marvel movie-verse
Pairing: Tony/Steve pre-slash
Summary: As part of integrating Steve into the modern world, Tony sets aside one night a week to watch movies. It’s supposed to be just him and Steve, but everyone else joins in on the party.
Notes: Yeah, I’m sure plenty of people have done this before. And some parts might be a little silly, but this is a just for fun ficlet, so enjoy! Also, at the part where Thor compares his life to Hercules, I borrowed that from some other fic (I’m so sorry I can’t remember who wrote that right now, but if someone tells me, I’ll put credit up), because really, that’s just gold and too good to not use. And Thor totally would.
The idea to have a weekly movie night starts off just between Tony and Steve. When the team had first formed, Fury had placed Tony in charge of Steve and Thor’s technological education. The two catch onto things rather swiftly. Steve is quick to pick things up, even when he’s wary of them, and Thor is some crazy level beyond enthusiastic. But things like computers and cellphones and Facebook and Twitter aren’t the only bits and pieces of the modern world that the two are ignorant about. Steve’s missed out on the past sixty-six years, and with how much the world has changed he might as well be in Thor’s other dimensional shoes.
A big part of pop culture is movies, and so Tony—admittedly always more willing to help Steve than Thor, but he can’t feel too bad about that because Thor has Jane and her team—decides to make thing of it. One night a week, they take over the projection room and watch movies. Tony kicks it off with Disney. If there’s ever a movie franchise in this world that serves as staple of American childhood, it’s Disney. The company had already released a few films by the time Steve was frozen, so they skip ahead and start off with Cinderella.
For a few weeks, it’s just Steve and Tony enjoying the films, but one night when they’re watching Sleeping Beauty, Clint happens to walk by just in time to see Prince Phillip awaken Aurora with his kiss. He crows and makes a joke about Steve’s enchanted ice sleep and is that how Prince Tony had woken him up. Steve blushes and scowls, and Tony thinks he can’t possibly get in trouble for lobbing his scotch at Clint’s head. He does, after all, own this tower.Read more
The way Thor lolz at Tony is hilarious., XDD
I love how Tony and Steve are just circling each other like two lions trying to assert their dominance. Meanwhile Thor’s over there like “Ha, you two are so cute with your tiny muscles and mortal bodies. Someone make me a sandwich!”
I’ll reblog for that comment because sandwich!
