I was talking with Jane and Monica last night and we decided Tony thinks that Thor is kind of dull because, like Steve, he’s not familiar with 21st century pop culture. So he sets up weekly movie nights to
lord over how smart he isget his new buddies up to speed.
But he forgets that Thor is a thousand years old. He’s heard pretty much every permutation of every storyline ever conceived ever, and several times at that. So he’s very, very good at predicting ever single plot twist. Loudly.
“HIS FATHER IS NOT DEAD, HE IS THE VILLAIN, OF COURSE”
“HE IS A GHOST, SHE IS A GHOST, SHE IS NOT A GHOST, HE IS NOT A GHOST BUT WILL BE IN 40 MINUTES”
“OH, SO IT WILL ALL BE A DREAM! MOST EXCELLENT, A FINE TWIST”
i want to read thor’s movie reviews forever
oh my god you guys - 700 words of avengers college professors!au which i will probably not finish (and definitely has not been looked over), but who knows:
The thing about Tony Stark - well, the thing is that he’s kind of a legend at Shield University. He started at the college at the age of fifteen and he never really left. He’s been at Shield in some capacity or the other since Dean Fury was merely Professor Fury, much to the dean’s chagrin. It’s not like Fury can get rid of Tony either, even though he threatens to every other week or so. The fact of the matter is that Tony is the best and the brightest in the engineering field and Shield University is lucky to have him on their payroll as a professor, which Tony knows and flaunts at every available opportunity. It’s not that he stays because of some sense of loyalty or anything - it’s not like the university has been more of a home to him and its people more of a family than his childhood home and actual family have been.
This looks like a Dos Equis commercial
“I don’t always go avenging, but when I do, I prefer to go avenging with my friends.
Stay heroic, my friends.
This looks horrible but I wanted to get the idea out of my head
NO TO STEREOTYPES YES

Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, “It might have been.”
Steve is half-serious when he tells Bruce that he’s sixty years behind on his reading, but it’s still a surprise when Bruce dumps half a dozen books on his lap two hours later. Steve holds one up, confused — they’re all by the same author. Bruce just smiles and says he thinks Steve’ll like them. They’re about the war. Sort of.
Later, he’ll think that’s a roundabout way to put it. Later, he’ll suspect that they weren’t chosen on their historical or literary merit; that Bruce knew he’d understand what they say about the human heart, and what it means to become unstuck in time.
