On one hand I’m glad I’m getting educated because wow I sucked
But on the other hand I miss naively enjoying media
Random crow shows up on dude’s porch, looks him straight in the face and says ‘fuck you’
Who wants to talk about Bucky?
Like. Everyone says Bucky got a bastardized version of the super soldier serum. Something that wasn’t quite right, but just enough to make him more than human. After watching Steve kick around men on the ship in the beginning of catws and watching Bucky kick around men on the hellicarrier at the end… they have similar power. Their hand to hand was pretty evenly matched.
Because I want to know how much he knew about himself. How much he was aware of whatever Zola injected him with did to him. Did he notice that he healed faster? That his eyesight was sharper? That he could keep up with this new improved Steve, this supposed super soldier? I wonder if any of the other commandos had trouble keeping up. I wonder if they’d ask for breaks, remind Steve they needed breaks every now and then (Steve never forgot they needed breaks, he’s too aware for that, but they liked dogging him all the same. ”Not all of us are super soldiers, Cap.” ”Yeah, let us mere mortals rest already, gee.”) and Bucky would have a moment of confusion along the lines of ‘I should be tired but I’m not’ and he’d look at Steve and Steve would be just as rested and energized and he’d wonder.
He was sitting alone at that bar, drinking by himself, trying to forget or to numb it or to shut himself down so he could process it, and I want to know how much alcohol he drank before he realized it wasn’t going to do anything for him.
I want to know if he knew what happened to him, because you know he and Steve talked about how it amplifies aspects of the man, not just muscles and agility and speed, but personality.
I want to know what he thought about that. What that meant for him. If he knew there was something a bit dark about him ever since Zola. The doubt he’d feel, the question of “Is this me or is this Zola?”
And if he knew, if he recognized the changes and the improvements, how come he never told Steve?
Was it worry that he’d be taken and become a rat in a lab somewhere where they could experiment on him? Was it a quiet vow that he wouldn’t become a villain? Was it the knowledge that while Steve was this loved public figure, he was just a grunt they could use anyway they pleased, free will and promise of freedom could be torn away from him?
Maybe it was just the feeling that he’d never be the same.
I want to know if Bucky’s fears about these changes in him predicted his future.
okay unnamed family member
just because a person in a minority uses a word to describe themselves doesn’t mean you get to use that word now
I feel like this season is all about my life and/or how I’d be in an apocalypse. Anyone else?
i’m still haunted by the line “princesses don’t marry kitchen boys” because the absolute _resignation_ and heartbreak in that line still hurts my heart.
Asexual Tony Stark.
Asexual Tony Stark who started to have sex because it was expected of him.
Asexual Tony Stark who has sex because it was the only way he could have intimacy with another person without having to open up to them emotionally.
Asexual Tony Stark who hides his feelings of being broken behind a playboy persona.
Asexual Tony Stark who has a reputation he feels he needs to keep up.
Asexual Tony Stark (and the rest of the Avengers) who accompany Steve to a pride parade (in Tony’s opinion Steve looks adorable in pink, purple, and blue) when suddenly he comes across a small group of people with gray triangles on their shirts trying to pass out flyers, trying being the key word because everybody is avoiding them like the plague. So he gets closer (inconspicuously of couse) and finds out they’re Asexual and they don’t feel sexual attraction.
Asexual Tony Stark who suddenly has his whole world flipped upside down.
Asexual Tony Stark who charges up to the kids and demands to be told more about this ‘asexuality’ and at first they think Tony’s just being one of those assholes who don’t believe asexuality exists but they soon recognize the look of dawning understanding on his face and start in on their spiel. And after an hour of looking for Tony the other Avengers finally find him decked out in black, gray, purple, and white; talking animatedly with similarly clad people while stuffing his face with cake.
Asexual Tony Stark who is very proud about his sexuality and works very hard to bring it the visibility it deserves despite the hundreds of people trying to identity police him because he’s had so much sex in the past.
Asexual Tony Stark.
So I know that there have been several people who’ve talked about Crowley’s line of “Pick a bloody side!” and “I think you don’t know what you want” and how it’s a metaphor of Dean’s bisexuality. They’ve said that Bisexual’s don’t have to pick a side, obviously, just like Dean doesn’t want to.
And there’s something else I’d like to point out.
In the scene where Crowley demands that Dean “pick a side” there are four people in the room. Dean and Crowley face each other in a stand off, and a male demon is one one side of the room and a female demon on the other side.
Dean is directly in the middle the entire time.
The scene could have easily been shot with another “Just Dean and Crowley confrontation” but they decided to have these two other demons placed just so and they don’t really serve any other purpose.
Dean stays right in the middle of the two and refuses to pick a side.
I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway.
actually there a good post going around picking this theory up and analyzing that the point is that dean refuses to pick a side bc that’s not how it works
i’d love to read this
