Little Lion Man is a Steve/Tony vid by aheartthen.

Notes: "I wasn't going to make another before Avengers came out, but then this song got stuck in my head and I kept singing it 'Little Iron Man'. [...] Also, the entire video is not in that red. XD Most the thumbnail options happened to be though."[1]


It's a Steve/Tony Civil War AU so if you're not familiar with that arc (and if you're in this fandom, esp. for that pairing, it's sort of required reading/understanding, for it is EPIC). I am continously stunned by the editing of this vid and how it renders the ever familiar source footage into something completely believable for the Steve vs. Tony end of things. It makes me wail in that fangirl way.[2]
"This is fantastic. The song choice is perfect, it's gorgeously edited and I love the way you created a completely new story out of the material and it all fit together so well."[3]
"Great, great editing, and I love how you wove in the fight scenes to align with the music. I found myself clapping at the end!"[4]
"You've the 'Captain America' and other footage blended so *seamlessly*, perfect choice of images because i wasn't left going 'oh, there's Tony in front of 'green' background and he's supposed to be looking at Steve, who's so obviously in front of 'purple' background....' But no. I was totally convinced, totally charmed, totally feeling my heart ache for them both and also! Also, sitting her grinning like an idiot at the sheer perfection of it all."[5]
