Tony Stark + looking really attractive (part 3)
It was a roller coaster of emotions, and it had to seem real. You know, that scene with Tony Hale that we had in the bathroom.. That was almost like watching a scene of two people getting high. She was kinda high, she was high on power, and the elation of that moment, and the news sort of took her to a, shall we say, higher place. But it was all very, hard work to make it look like that I guess is what I have to say, but the script was very fine and in place and we got it. But it was definitely alot of blood sweat and tears going into that episode, no doubt about it. – Julia Louis-Dreyfus talking about the crazy bathroom scene on KCRW.
Yes, Tony Stark is a rich white cis guy. Congratulations, you have basic visual/reading comprehension! But he ALSO is a victim of child abuse, has major depressive disorder and PTSD, is an alcoholic, and has suffered multiple times from people manipulating and then betraying him. Which makes him a victim in ways other than race or orientation.
In case y’all forgot, the two current fandom faves are ALSO white cis men. Steve and Bucky? Have 75% of the same characteristics as Tony. So when some Tony fans get together and decide to push back against the constant mischaracterization and blame placed on Tony, you countering with “there’s no need to defend a rich white cis guy” makes you sound stupid as fuck.
there are only 3 selina meyer/tom james fics out there and that my friends…is a disgrace

FFUCK IT LOOKS LIKE PEPPER TELLS HIM “But you have to come back, okay, you can’t leave me alone.” AND TONY SAYS “When have I ever not come back? You know I’m a tough guy to beat, don’t you?” AND THEN THEY SHARE A FAREWELL KISS????????????
