If only I could make a deal with God, and get him to swap our places. Screencap of a gif set made out of screencaps from the vid.
that is the most stunningly beautiful piece of Tony/Steve angst I've ever seen. Gorgeous work in animating the comic scans, amazing. (bellatronics, YouTube)
Holy crap, this is AMAZING. Absolutely gorgeous. (MonotonousRainbow, YouTube)
I've looked for this video all day! It's one of the best fanvideo I've ever seen, the animation of the comics is just gorgeous. (BeeAndTheKettle, YouTube)
Okay, I'm just going to go crawl up into a little ball and sob. Don't mind me. Just being overwhelmed by all the feels. This is almost as traumatizing as when I actually read the comics...and that's saying something, because I went into a bit of a catatonic state after the Civil War. (CarlisleEsmeluv, YouTube)
I seriously started crying in the first 20 seconds. kudos to you, for making such a beautiful video. I really dont cry easy and this just brought out all my feels (hyperTayT123, YouTube)
I love the animation of the bullet firing! Amazing job! (bunniesrcooldealwith, YouTube)
This is actually my favorite steve/tony video ever. You're use of motion comics is god-like (hedgehog4808, YouTube)
