Anonymous said: OK BUT MARIA STARK COMING TO THE FUTURE AND TONY SEEING HIS MOTHER AGAIN
ok i keep trying to make a drabble for this but i just can’t oh my gOD
tony would see his mother again and he’d explain everything and at the end of it she’d make this big watery gasp and smile and hug him and it’d start all awkwardly but then they’d be clinging to each other and no one would know what to do
she’d be distant and weirdly- she’d be weirdly tony-ish, she’d zone out at random moments and she’d smirk like him and kind of stand like him and move like him and it’d be so uncanny and strange
none of them really thought about how much of his mother tony got, but when they’re around her for a while they realize just how much of tony is because of his mother and her influence
like, they smile the same when they’re talking about something they don’t want to be talking about, and that’s because she taught him how to hold himself when he’s in that situation
she’s the one who taught him how to endure the media’s clawing hands, to endure the flirting that gets so so old over the years, endure the people who just want your money and your body until they go away and you can escape and rest until you have to do it all over again
she’s the one who taught him that, all the important things that have helped tony survive.
