"We have a double standard, which is to say, a man can show how much he cares by being violent — see, he’s jealous, he cares — a woman shows how much she cares by how much she’s willing to be hurt; by how much she will take; how much she will endure."

"Good things come to those who wait. But so do really malevolent and scary things. In fact, probably more of those. Better keep moving."

oh God now I’m picturing Howard somehow ending up in the future and having to stay for awhile and watching Tony carefully; how he moves, how he talks, how he interacts with people … then one night he catches Tony as he’s coming in from work and he’s…

I FUCKING LOVE YOU OKAY just needed to be said. >.> I have a headcanon that Tony is extremely musically talented and knows how to play several instruments and stuff and it's the only thing he doesn't boast about because it's something his mother got him into and she loved seeing him do it and yeah do with that what you will

MARIA TAUGHT TONY TO PLAY ITALIAN CHRISTMAS CAROLS IN THE PIANO YOU WILL NEVER CONVINCE ME THIS DIDN’T HAPPEN

  • maria wearing a silk robe with her hair and make-up done because she has a charity gala to attend with howard
  • from a distance she hears tony playing in the piano
  • he’s only four and he’s playing twinkle-twinkle little star she never taught him that. she smiles because he must have learned it by ear
  • she decides that this is it, this is the time, she’s gonna start teaching tony how to play the piano
  • so she sits down with him on the bench and plays
  • like she just plays and tony is completely quiet and mesmerized and he isn’t looking at the keys he’s looking up at maria’s face
  • maria realizes it and she laughs. “pay attention to the keys, you won’t learn.”
  • "okay" and he looks at the keys for six whole seconds before slowly looking up at her again and this time maria just keeps smiling and playing
  • tony grows up and that piano is still there, and other people have played on it just because he’s too shy to ask them not to, because they’ll ask why and he’ll have to say it was his mother’s and this was the bench where she left lipstick marks on his cheek after kissing him and this is where he got his most vibrant memory of how “i love you, darling” sounds when you say it in italian
  • tony getting a little sad every time he thinks about maria and everything she could have been. she could have been a concert pianist. she was the greatest concert pianist the world will never get to see and he will never forget that
  • oh my god
  • maria stark
  • MARIA STARK




"I adore those boys and I felt that very early on. It really hit home to me about a week after I got back when I suddenly realised I felt a bit anxious. I think Howard was the first person I saw - we were watching one of the episodes and I just had a moment about ten minutes into the episode when I suddenly felt very aware of Howard’s presence and I felt fine again. I thought, “God, what on earth is happening? I’m co-dependent”."
