  1. Summary

    “The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd—the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.” — Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

    Summary

    "I have an equation. In the eight years since Mr. Stark announced himself as Iron Man, the number of known enhanced person has grown exponentially. And, during the same time period, the number of potentially world-ending events has risen at a commensurate rate."
    "You're saying it's our fault?"
    "I'm saying there may be a causality."

    In the wake of civil war, Wanda makes a wish.

    Summary

    You believe in the possibility of improvement and not in the virtue of stasis. That's what makes you a futurist. You get angry every time you replay the narrative of Steve choosing the past over the present. The A in Avengers has an arrow pointing forward.

     

    I realize that this is not at all in the proper spirit of this prompt.
