"Tony Stark is a pain in the ass. […] He’s careless with people, and things, and money, and himself. He will make you crazy. […] But he’s also generous to a fault […] and he refuses to admit defeat. […] If I’m facing impossible odds. […] then I’m calling Tony. […] Because he is the most reliable, brilliant, loyal, crazy son-of-a-bitch you will ever meet. Because he’s worth every struggle, every annoyance, and that’s the damn truth."
-Col. James Rhodes, in Things Unseen (That Are Captured on Film), by scifigrl47.
