Romanov and Fury sometime have random katana fights at HQ. They are absolutely legendary in their quirkiness and everybody like to talk about their favorite one.
The best has to be the time Natasha was headed for an elevator when the doors opened to Nick waiting for her with a katana and the Kill Bill Ironside siren playing in the elevator. Natasha ended up using whatever was close by to fight, which happened to be Tony’s Stark Pad.

"Everyone is trying to heal, but the problem they’re having is that they expect, expect to have a full recovery. Healing doesn’t mean that it will disappear, as though it never happened & erase from existence. All the worst injuries leave a scar behind. All healing means is that you left the pain behind with the memory. You learned to live with the unchangeable, the irreversible. Don’t waste your time looking for ways to numb it or sugar coat it. Because it is, what it is. Which is life, unfolding & displaying itself right before you. You will never fully or entirely heal. If you place heat against a wound, you are bound to feel the pain igniting from within. And that’s perfectly okay. Why are people so afraid? Afraid to feel something so undeniably real? So brutally honest? Embrace it. Embrace the good with the bad, the ugly with the beautiful, & the pain with the present. Learn to endure it, because it’s all we can do. Grow a tolerance. Take a shot & let it burn down. This pain your feeling, it constructed you. To be who are you this very waking moment. And there is a beauty in that."
And finally someone said it
nobody’s fucking stopping you from putting on some foundation dude you can put it on and it’s discrete and other straight guys won’t be able to tell and it does wonders. nobody’s stopping you from moisturizing or even putting on the lightest bits of concealer. don’t worry, other straight men can’t tell
Also there’s less pressure for men to be attractive and more pressure on women to see past men’s looks for their personalities, like look how many movies star average/ugly dudes who still score modelesque girls.
step 1: create unrealistic, unattainable standards of beauty for women
step 2: build a multi-billion dollar beauty industry to sell women makeup, tell them they are worthless without it
step 3: mock and vilify women who wear makeup as vain and fake, mock and vilify women who don’t wear makeup as ugly
step 4: code makeup as exclusively feminine, make the feminine shameful, shame any and all men perceived as feminine
step 5: complain that you can’t wear makeup
all that commentary
