W i p e him. Start over.
What kills me is up to that last gif he hasn’t been making eye contact. He’s been lost in his own confusion and memories and even his lashing out is not from a desire to hurt everyone, but from flashbacks. He’s treated like a thing and he acts like a thing. Even his not answering how Pierce wants isn’t defiant, it’s like a broken record. He’s completely submissive to everyone in that room, disturbingly so. The scene was him being completely vulnerable (he has weapons pulled on him, he’s half dressed surrounded by men in SWAT gear, he looks like a chastened child).
But the last gif he makes eye contact. Because this question is so important to him. Seventy years of being a THING and there’s this glimmer of SOMETHING. There’s a name. There’s a person. There’s a chance he’s not just some weapon to be used and abused as needed. They talk around him, they ignore him, they abuse him…but this is important enough for him to pursue. So he makes eye contact. Like a HUMAN. That eye contact. That look of “I KNOW I know this…and I know you’re gonna take it from me…I know you’re going to hurt me for knowing this…but I KNOW it no matter what you say”. That second gif is regret that he can’t let go of this rabbit trail, but that third one…that third one says “I know you’re lying to me and I know that doesn’t matter because I’m too broken to fight back, but I know I’m right”.
No wonder Pierce doesn’t even bother to demand anything but wiping him after that look. His weapon just looked at him like a human.
EXCUSE ME, FANDOM, BUT COULD YOU STOP IT WITH YOUR ACCURATE AND HEART-BREAKING META LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO PULL MYSELF BACK TOGETHER? THANKS.
Stunning Electric-Blue Flames Erupt From Volcanoes - Olivier Grunewald.
Sulfur Sulfur combusts on contact with air to create stunning blue lava-like rivers of light in the Kawah Ijen crater on the island of Java.Kawah Ijen is one of several volcanoes situated in a 20 km radius in East Java, Indonesia. The caldera of Kawah Ijen harbors a kilometer-wide, turquoise colored, acidic crater lake that leaks sulphurous gases. At night the hot gases burn to emit an eerie blue glow that is unique to Kawah Ijen. The gases emerge from the cracks in the volcano at high pressure and temperature, up to 600°C, and when they come in contact with the air, they ignite, sending flames up to 16 feet high. Some of the gases condense into liquid sulfur, and continues to burn as it flows down the slopes giving the feeling of blue lava flowing.
#Steve that’s a judging face #are you judging Tony #I think you are #just because he put his name on a building too doesn’t mean he wants to take over the world #Tony wouldn’t have any idea what the fuck to do with the world if he had it #he’d probably give it to Pepper
reblogging for he’d probably give it to Pepper
Off to grad school interview soon and I just fell asleep at my desk. Apparently it’s going to be one of those days. Joy.
