Who is Tony Stark when you take away the suit?
The guy who could and did build the suit
Nobody gave him Iron Man. It wasn’t an accident. Tony built himself into a superhero with his hands and his tools and his brain, and it takes a very very specific kind of person not just to have that knowledge but to make that CHOICE to say, “yes the most obvious next step in my life is to build an automated suit of armor and fight evil”
This is why I LOVE HIM. He’s not a God, he didn’t gain his powers from an injection, he didn’t have a freak accident, he wasn’t born with a mutation. He made himself.
“I find suggestion a hell of a lot more provocative than explicit detail. You didn’t see Clark [Gable] and Vivien [Leigh] rolling around in bed in Gone With The Wind, but you saw that shit eating grin on her face the next morning and you knew damned well she’d gotten properly laid.” ― Joan Crawford
The red string of fate, is an East Asian belief originating from Chinese legend and is also used in Japanese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the fingers of those that are destined to meet each other in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. According to Chinese legend, the deity in charge of “the red thread” is believed to be Yuè Xià Lǎo (月下老, often abbreviated to “Yuèlǎo” [月老]), the old lunar matchmaker god who is also in charge of marriages.
The two people connected by the red thread are destined lovers, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break. This myth is similar to the Western concept of soulmates or a twin flame.
I tried a 2-D printer once, and the paper jammed.
So now I just painstakingly re-create my paper copies by hand, like a medieval monk.
i tried using paper, but the edges crumpled
so now i just chisel my commandments into stone, like old testament god
I tried using stone, but it cracked and broke.
Now I just scream everything at passersby, hoping they’ll remember what I said so I can ask them about it when I need it.
