r.i.p. to tyler joseph’s best pictures, which on this day were tragically deleted from his instagram. the first one barely lived to see two minutes of life before it was taken from us.

This is a movie about Steve’s love for Bucky.

If Bucky Barnes were a woman, this would be a love story, played out with all the same narrative beats. If Peggy were the brainwashed assassin kept frozen through the decades, this movie would definitely end in a kiss. Everything about the love, pain, and intimacy of the Steve/Bucky relationship on the big screen is typical of a romance, and that’s something fans are right to respond to — something the filmmakers may even be playing into, though surely not with any formal sign-off from Disney.

If we lived in a world that had no hang-ups about same-sex relationships, no hate, no prejudice towards the idea of two men or two women together; do you doubt for a second that this movie would actually be a romance?

If everything else about this movie were the same, but we were different, wouldn’t it make sense for Steve and Bucky to kiss?

This movie looks about as gay as it’s allowed to be. One day we’ll get a movie like it that’s actually gay enough.

being a girl was complicated. it was swallowing rusty nails and clawing our way towards something we didn’t even know we really wanted. // R.I.D.

Annabeth has a thick mane of golden hair that can be hard to wrangle at the best of times. Her hair-ties often break at the most inopportune times, and she never has enough. Percy resorts to carrying them around in his pocket, but even those break and Annabeth is this close to cutting all of it off. Unbeknownst to her, Leo is currently working on a re-gluing serum and nigh indestructible hairties under the “gentle” guidance of a stressed Percy who is tired of waking up to a mouthful of hair.
