It did occur to me, though, considering Joss Whedon’s history, that he might kill a couple of Avengers in the third act just for giggles. BUT JOSS, THEY’VE ALREADY INKED MULTI-PICTURE DEALS. KEEP THAT SPIKE AWAY FROM STEVE’S CHEST
“[Chris] Evans raises another question as the cameras are about to roll. ‘Wait, how do I check for a pulse?’ he asks, realizing that Iron Man’s armor makes it impossible. [Joss] Whedon’s face furrows as he thinks. Right. ‘Press his chest, lean down, and feel for his breath,’ the director says.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Delicious. I really appreciate the way that you have taken a user friendly, helpful and extremely useful tool and turned it into a convoluted mess that is nearly incomprehensible.
The part where there is no central location for all my tags is great….
YEAH THIS FOREVER ASSHOLES
Delicious has a complaints email address right on their help page, you guys. Under contact us. It even has exclamation points. They are eager to take your complaints. Though being passive-aggressive and calling them assholes is probably not the way to go about it.
Oh man, I desperately lust after that one, but the good sense fairy beat up the fiscal irresponsibility fairy on that one, for a change. I got this guy. He’s going to guard the hot sauces and peace lily on my desk.
I’m really taken aback (in a pleasant way) by the massive outpouring of fan love for this pairing since that barely 5 minute long episode clip leaked. On the other hand, I’ve seen a couple people asking, “Why is it such a BIG deal?” (generally, people who don’t ship it) and I thought an explanation was in order.
First off, if you aren’t a queer person who watches cartoons, it’s probably NOT a big deal to you. Asking why this scene is important is like a straight person at a Gay pride march saying “Why don’t I get a parade?” The thing is, you DO get one. It’s on every other street, every day.
If you’re a queer person who likes cartoon series, you will be extremely hard pressed to find any representation of someone like you. You cling to every bit of subtext you can find, make up your own headcanons, so that you can feel some identification with the characters.
So when a moment like this leaked Adventure Time clip comes out, where it’s not even subtext, it feels pretty canon… it’s kind of an earth-shatteringly huge deal. It’s a feeling of, “Wow, I can relate to this! Wow, they aren’t treating people like me as nasty freaks who must be erased from all public media!”
I suspect if you aren’t a member of a minority group who is constantly erased or misrepresented, you will never understand what a big deal it is to have a moment of representation. And by that token, you will never understand why people of such groups react SO STRONGLY and with such unbridled joy and celebration when it happens.
I just realized that the Iron Woman movie would be a romantic comedy about her trying to balance her superhero life with trying to find love and start a family. Also instead of alcoholism, she’d be clumsy.
