Agent Coulson is down
#gif warning #avengers #okay but why does nOBODY EVER TALK ABOUT THE GENERATION GAP #come on guys this is the MOST INTERESTING THING #look if steve had lived through the war he would have been part of that post-wwii generation #imagine steve in the 60S GUYS #you think he would have put up with those young folks disrespecting those soldiers and his country by protesting the war? HECK NO #remember that scene at the beginning of ca:tfa where he tells off that guy in the movie theater? THAT WOULD BE STEVE IN THE 60S #and tony is in his 40s!! tony is gen x! tony is NOT EVEN A BOOMER #tony is TOO YOUNG TO BE A BABY BOOMER tony is YOUNGER THAN OUR PARENTS #tony doesn’t know what it’s like to live in a country that’s in total war! tony doesn’t know what it’s like for loyalty to your country t… #to be something that almost everyone has! #look guys we make fun of america ALL THE TIME we mock patriotism and nationalism and the usa CON STANT LY #when steve hears the word soldier he equates it with the word hero #and when tony hears the word soldier he hears an insult. #because steve’s war is wwii #and tony’s wars are vietnam and iraq and afghanistan and tony knows that when america fights wars it is not necessarily the good guy! #and steve cannot even BEGIN to comprehend that #steve barely knows what WATERGATE is for god’s sake steve probably still trusts the government #steve doesn’t know about jfk conspiracy theories! steve doesn’t know about the patriot act #(and let me remind you that in 616 canon steve actually fought a war to bring down the expy!patriot act) #god america has grown up SO MUCH since steve’s day #americans are sarcastic and cynical and plugged into the media 24/7 #americans depricate themselves constantly americans hate america more than anybody else does #pearl harbor turned america into a unified force for change in the world; 9/11 turned america into something paranoid and bitter #steve no longer represents america #he represents what america wishes it had ever been #and tony? tony understands the usa a whole lot better than steve does and he knows it and steve never will #and tony understands how war can destroy and steve only understands how it can save #holy christ why would you write porn when you could write about that
DING DING DING DING. Tony knows, first hand, what modern warfare is like. He bankrolled it, ffs. He built it. Stark Enterprises was the go-to guys for shit to kill people with. Fuck, Steve’s metaphor about sacrifice: crawling through the mud, laying over the wire so your buddies can crawl over you and keep on going. Pure WWII trench warfare. But they don’t do that any more. They fire 100,000 dollar missiles from half a mile away, manless and sloppy drone strikes and throw smart bombs that can level buildings and the overwhelming death count is always civilians. Those trapped, unable to flee the combat zone. Women and children, poor and helpless, as bombs fling over their heads and bullets riddle their houses and never knowing if a remote controlled fighter is going to drop a payload on their house that was meant for some terrorist ring leader and wipe out their entire block. Steve is red, white and blue and pure patriotism and pride in fighting for a worthy cause. Tony is red and gold that knows that those colors have been planted on a mountain of corpses of innocent people.
This is so much more interesting than porn omg.
No. Tony. NO! You can NOT adopt him!
He has to go back where he came from. (He’s got a steady girlfriend for crying out loud.)
Aw AW “TOOON-EEE?”
some people’s hearts are hard to reach; that doesn’t mean it’s not there.
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!
