Day 2
In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.


uh the first Iron Man movie. tbh I am a gigantic tony stark stan & relate to him a lot/see a lot of his problems as similar to mine, save naturally the whole superhero building psuedomechas and being rich thing. his ptsd, his anxiety, his feeling out of place & not knowing who he can trust, the fact that I HC him as autistic like meeee, all sorts of things. and I vividly remember watching the first Iron Man movie, after a lifetime of comic book movies being considered bad & wastes of time, and thinking "this is gonna change everything".

and I mean, it did! it really did. not just throughout the media scene but in my life too; I actually dressed as Tony for my con wedding in June. :3 I'm going to get his arc reactor tattoo'd someday. I have his arc reactor as a cool toy I can stick to my chest for cosplay. I've cosplayed him twice already in two different forms. I've seen all the movies & read a good chunk of the comics. my house is 90% iron man.

he as a character is super important to me & it as a movie was super important to me!

(man I could've sworn I had a tony icon too, damn shame I can't get icons right now. sooooon.)

I loved the first Iron Man movie, too. He's a great iconic character, to be sure.

Arc reactor tattoo: A+ choice.

Also, yeeees. I am absolutely here with Tony being autistic, 100% hc accepted. He is also precious to me and I will fight a man over Tony Stark, because ugh ugh. He's just such a good character, he's so easy to relate to because he's human and he screws up, and his has his problems but he is just so good???

Idk if that even makes sense BUT.

I, too, feel this way about Tony Stark.
