I wonder if the people who ship a human Jarvis and Tony know that Jarvis is in fact a human in the comics…that he’s a kindly old man…basically Tony’s surrogate father…I wonder if they care.
I wonder if the people who think Edwin Jarvis and AI Jarvis are the same person know that there was like a dozen Jarvises in various Marvel media, each of them with a distinct personality, physique, age, sexual orientation or relationship to Tony.
Iron Man Movie 2008 - Why when Obadiah Stane takes Tony’s Arc Reactor does JARVIS not attempt to stop him by contacting the Police / Authorities / Pepper / Rhodey?
Are we assuming that Obadiah knows his way around JARVIS’s security systems or did I miss something?
This was addressed in the initial script, and thus present in the novelization of the movie, but for some reason omitted from the movie.
In the novel Obadiah meets Tony under the excuse of wanting to resign from Stark Industries. When he hands Tony his resignation letter, Jarvis offers to proofread it instead of Tony. Obadiah looks pained at this, and asks Tony to shut Jarvis down, so they can have their last talk together in privacy.
Tony listens, but later learns from his mistake and takes to carrying with him a portable device through which Jarvis can monitor him. He also asks Jarvis to act like a normal AI whenever somebody else is present, so nobody can take an issue to a third party eavesdropping on everything.
I say “normal AI”, because in the novel it’s implied that Jarvis is fully sentient and sapient - and although it’s not something Tony intended (it’s stated a few times that Jarvis wasn’t supposed to be intuitive, creative, capable of reacting emotionally or acting that snarky), Tony pretty much just rolls with it. He’s significantly more polite and caring towards Jarvis than RDJ!Tony, and it’s even hinted that Jarvis actually gets paid for his services.
In the movie - I guess Obadiah just hacked JARVIS, as he seems pretty hapless compared to his novel counterpart. ^^’
>I’m inserting on (Manga) Shinji
>(Manga) Kaworu is based on a transfer student I had a crush on
>Also there was a no-romance rule but I had to break it because Kaworu is special

A+ post, A+gif
Friendly reminder that Rei had such a weak self-image that she didn’t even care about Shinji invading her privacy.
Friendly reminder that she was a clone raised in isolation, and perhaps simply hadn’t aquired the social norms that cause people to get embarassed when seen naked. Friendly reminder that people with weak self-image usually get embarassed very easily.
Friendly reminder that everyone Shinji met congratulated him when he finally grew past his issues. Everyone except Kaworu.
Friendly reminder that “everyone” consisted of entities dissolved into Tang against their will.
Friendly reminder that Kaworu was the one who appreciated indivituality and human culture and thus was against merging with Lilith and forcing the humanity to devolve into the primodial soup.
Friendly reminder that Kaworu had the sould of Adam, the Seed of Life, and thus couldn’t actually join the shared counsciousness of Lilim, which came from Lilith, the Seed of Knowledge.
Anyone remember a film where a soldier comes back from battle cause he got injured (blind) can’t handle being at home and not being able to cope, by the end if the film he walks into the sea and commits suicide. (i think) I thought the lead guy was Paul bettany but its not. Please can someone remember the film
This sounds like Coming Home (1998). Paul Bettany isn’t the lead guy, but he plays a soldier who gets injured and loses his sight. He does commit suicide later on. :(
Oh my god the NOTES
HAD TO REBLOG AGAIN !!!
the gif… PRICELESS.
there are only a little over 9million users on Tumblr..almost every single damn person has liked this post. Tumblr has the power!
Never not reblogging because it gets truer and truer every day.
Arthur and Eames made it to round two in a slash battle type thing on this website, and it’d be so cool if they progressed.
I doubt they could beat ships like Dean/Cas or Sterek, just because of sheer mass of fans, but they deserve some love. They’re currently in the lead of their battle but slipping.
Arthur/Eames FTW! So much subtext. SO. MUCH. SUBTEXT.
JARVIS plays a lot of online gambling type games and being a computer he wins every time. Unbeknownst to even Tony, JARVIS has saved up a hefty little nest egg this way, despite it being unlikely that a computer would ever need his own money.
According to the novelization, Jarvis does have his own money (or at least an access to one of Tony’s accounts, considering the fact that it would be rather difficult for him to have an account in his own name):
[Tony] turned back over the Unisphere, watching to see if it was going to fall over. He didn’t want it to, but it had just absorbed a whole lot of impact energy that it wasn’t designed to absorb. (…)
“Unisphere appears intact and rotationally stable,” Jarvis reported.
“Who cares about the Unisphere?” Tony snapped, irritated that Jarvis had seen through him so easily. “Figure out Rhodey’s OS. What do I pay you for?” (Iron Man 2 by A.Irvine)
On an unrelated note, it’s adorable how Tony tries to convince everybody (and himself) that he’s not a sentimental person. When it comes to the things he (or his father) created, he’s a walking definition of sentimentality.
