and the award for the best use of that gif in human history goes to whoever made this.
From the beginning.
Jarvis in both incarnations has been the one true constant in Tony’s life. When Tony was a child (616) Edwin Jarvis was there for him when Howard became too rough, too violent and unwilling to address the needs of his son Jarvis smoothed over Tony’s fears, wiped away his fears, encouraged his intelligence and gave Tony someone to hold on to.
When Howard and Maria died, Jarvis kept the outside world at bay and held Tony’s nightmares back. He gave Tony all the love and affection and security that a father should give his son.
JARVIS the AI is no different. He is Tony’s touchstone in a world that changes radically as the boy grows into the man. JARVIS is with Tony night and day. In his phone, his homes, his cars, his suits. The shadowed existence of the man who helped raised him is always there to comfort and encourage him.
The scene in IM3 when JARVIS shuts down is breathtaking. The underlying panic in Robert’s voice as it catches, the look on his face as his one constant from when he was a child is taken from him is heartbreaking. Losing his home and his ‘bots was bad enough but this is JARVIS, Tony’s companion, his friend, the voice of reason that be it human or AI always has time for Tony, always listens to him is gone.
In my headcannon this would hurt Tony more than the loss of the ‘bots. JARVIS may be an AI but (mixing cannon’s) he was human once. He held Tony when he cried after his parents death. He was there when Tony bought home his first drawings from kindergarten He picked Tony up when he first learned to ride his bike and, in typical Tony fashion, went too fast too soon. He was there to listen when the boy was pushed, unprepared to deal with adult life into MIT and had to shoulder too young the responsibilities of running his father’s company. When JARVIS shuts down you can see in Tony’s (Robert’s) eyes, that his family is being taken from him all over again.
better hide this hideous shirt and I am ready for business
omg no really but like one my favourite cast stories is the one I read about Karl stabbing Chris extra-hard with the prop hypos each take for revenge because Chris used to whack him in the face with his sausage hands during the breaks in between takes
