“Friendzoning is a terrible thing. The idea of a friend zone is like a terrible male - have you ever heard a girl say she’s in the friend zone? It’s a thing I think men need to be really careful about using. When they were kicking around titles for ‘What If’, before ‘What If’ was chosen, I think that came up, and I was like, ‘No! Don’t do that!!!’ Do I think men and women can be friends? Yes, absolutely. Do I think men and women who are sexually attracted to each other can just be friends? Eh, it will probably become an issue at some point whether you deal with it, and talk about it and just move on, but it will always sort of get dealt with eventually…I definitely think the idea of friend zone is just men going, ‘This woman won’t have sex with me’.” - Daniel Radcliffe

JUST SAY HAPPY YOU FOOLS
Neither of them say it out loud until there’s a period of three weeks when Tony ‘dies’ and Steve ends up in a coma from throwing himself into the path of a raging killer robot.
He wakes up days later with Tony glaring at him, and his smile is sluggish. “Oh,” he says, soft. “Thank god.”
"I’m alive, asshole," Tony snaps. "We both are, no thanks to you, god, Steve-” and then the nurse comes in and Tony falls silent.
It takes several days before Tony takes a deep breath and says, “So, you were serious when you said you didn’t want to go on without me.”
Steve’s fingers pause in where they’re undoing his shoelaces. “Tony.”
"Don’t ‘Tony’ me," Tony says, and has to close his eyes for a moment. "Steve, I’m- I’m sixty. I’m not going to-"
"We have a long time left," Steve cuts him off, eyes suddenly bright. "We have decades, Tony, don’t-"
"Steve," Tony says, and Steve falls silent. "Fuck, Steve- you can’t-"
He pushes his hands through his hair, fingers working through it- his hair has more streaks of grey every time Steve looks at it, his face more lined, and it’s starting to make Steve panic every time he notices a new wrinkle in Tony’s skin.
"You’re going to have to keep going without me."
Steve knows this; has known it ever since he took a test and they announced that he’s going to be 400 by the time his body acts like he’s seventy years old.
Even so, Steve can’t stop his jaw from locking, his throat closing up as he looks over at Tony. “Says who?”
"Says-" Tony sighs, loud and frustrated. "Everyone, Steve, says me.”
"You could invent something-"
"That never turns out well, you know that," Tony says quietly. He takes Steve’s hands in his, and Steve all but clutches them. "Steve. You’ll get over it, one day."
"Don’t you dare," Steve says, just as soft. "Don’t you even suggest that."
"I know it doesn’t seem like it now-"
"You’ll invent something," Steve says. "You’ll make something, and you’ll stay with me. Or you’ll- you’ll get hit by something which makes you younger, or something will happen- something always happens, we’re superheroes, people don’t- they don’t stay dead, Tony, you can’t-"
He chokes up then, voice breaking, and Tony rests his forehead on Steve’s shoulder as it shakes.
"Don’t leave me alone," Steve says, voice hardly recognizable with the sobs wrecking it.
Tony doesn’t promise, because he knows he can’t. “We have decades,” he says instead, and holds Steve as he shakes apart in his arms.

Take m e back
to the s t a r t .
a couple days ago i saw someone raise the question of why Pacific Rim only seems to be resonating with millennials, and i didn’t know the answer, but i’ve been thinking about it a lot and suddenly i understand
it’s because it’s a movie about young people who are smart and capable but nonetheless handed a broken and nightmarish dying world, which is hurting everybody but especially them because they’re the ones who have to live their whole lives in it
and maybe it’s somebody’s fault but maybe it’s nobody’s fault, it doesn’t matter, but
there is a solution—which is literally to allow those young people to connect with and lean on each other and to give them the resources to take care of it themselves—but those in power refuse to take that solution seriously, so all the money and resources and power that should be going to fixing the problem are going into useless holes that aren’t going to save anybody
and everyone knows there’s no chance that things will get better. they know that everything is going to be terrible for the rest of time
and these young people take that world and the pathetic bottom of the barrel that’s been left for them and they spit and rebel in the faces of all of that, screaming that they won’t let it take them down after all
it’s a story about young people, together, exercising hope and power when they are afforded none and the stakes are so high
and it’s your story, too, if you make it be
