Emily Vancamp as Sharon Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”
Here’s an example of what we call a “soft no”. Sharon turns down Steve’s offer in a way that’s meant not to insult him but never actually uses the word “no”.
Steve clearly gets the message, though, and importantly offers to leave her alone. Sharon’s comment afterwards gives him an opportunity to try again later, but he doesn’t press and respects her rejection of his company even though it’s probably hurt his feelings a bit.
Just in case you ever wonder “What would Captain America do?”; there you go.
never do something steve rogers wouldn’t do.
Unless it’s jumping out of a plane without a parachute, you probably shouldn’t do that
That’s it. No more writing until I have a laptop again. I cannot take writing on this tablet anymore - I just can’t edit properly.

Well, I reckon you’re mad, the pair of you. It’s like you go looking for trouble.

Jack Harkness is probably the reason why bilateral symmetry is the template for all intelligent lifeforms in this series’ universe.
Please tell me I wasn’t the only one making this theory while watching Utopia in Season 3.

We really need to talk about this scene a lot, because holy wow. The MCU movies have definitely been getting a little darker since the Avengers, and Iron Man 3 was definitely the grimmest of that particular trilogy so far, but scenes like this? This is pure optimism. Tony is told he can save 4 out of 13, and then he saves all 13 of them anyway, because these people can work together and help Tony save them.
If a similar scenario had happened in the Dark Knight Saga or Man of Steel, you know damn well 9 out of those 13 people would have been dead. Hell, Bruce or Clark would have been lucky to even save the 4, because DC movies have gone down a route of unrelenting grtty realism that makes good old super heroics virtually impossible. Bruce can’t save the city without faking his own death; Clark can’t save the world without becoming a murderer.
But even in the darkest hours of the Marvel Universe, Tony Stark can damn well save 13 people plummeting to their certain death. Is it realistic? Hell no. But it was an awesome victory that both Tony and the audience needed at this point in the story, and by god it was heroic.
And the thing is? His rescue doesn’t actually break too many laws of physics. I can’t do the math, because I’m just too tired, but I’d bet adding that much drag + whatever Tony’s flying suit can do = just slow enough not to kill unprotected humans as they hit the water. So it’s not just optimism, it’s SCIENCE OPTIMISM!
