#the greatest #i’ve got red in my ledger. i’d like to wipe it clean. #she manipulates people’s gendered expectations of her to extract information #she conducts interrogations by letting people think they’ve bested her #by letting men think they’ve bested her #because she’s small and fragile and female and she is emotional and easy to snap in half #and then she tears them apart #and it’s the greatest thing and you’re the greatest thing and i love you #get your own movie
My favorite part is how Phil’s not even slightly concerned. Not even a tiny bit tense. He’s just bopping there, waiting until she’s done. The sound of breaking bones is Natasha’s hold music.

so this is the best version of this song that I have come across … cobbled together from two separate recordings … but will have to do until it is officially released.
Anonymous asked: Imagine Steve is fully expecting for Bucky to be just as annoyed with Tony as Steve is - "Just get ready, Buck, he's a real piece of work" - but Bucky and Tony get along like a house on fire, Bucky thinks Tony is so funny, Tony makes efforts to explain his tech and his pop culture references rather than leaving Bucky in the dust like he does with Steve, they just really really like each other, teasing and all. Steve is flabbergasted, and not at all jealous of course not
that all crumbles when tony finds the winter soldier’s file in the mess of declassified shield intel. he can’t resist looking, but what he finds is not what he expected; the names ‘howard and maria stark’ draw his eye like a trainwreck and - oh, it makes so much sense. he’d always thought their deaths had been an accident, but his father had been such an important contributor to shield technology, and bucky had been their pet assassin….the thought makes him sick. he wonders if bucky even remembers it, and realizes that he probably does and never said anything about it to tony.
bucky notices that tony suddenly can’t meet his eye anymore, that their easy joking camaraderie is gone, and it doesn’t take him long to put the pieces together. he doesn’t blame tony. he doesn’t want to look at himself either.
