You know, James Bond ain’t never been blonde either, in fact, he very specifically had jet-black hair, but they didn’t even bother to dye Daniel Craig’s hair for the role.
But you guys can’t wrap your heads around the mere possibility of Idris Elba playing James Bond, just because he’s black? How the hell do you guys expect me to believe racism is not involved? It’s Idris Elba, the man is 75% British and 25% tailored suit. Pretty sure his legal middle name is “Badass.” I’m not 100% convinced he is not James Bond in real life, in deep cover as an actor named Idris Elba.
What the hell is wrong with you if you have a problem with this?
I pretend I’m not lonely,
I pretend I’m not suffering.
I pretend I’m okay for no reason, meaninglessly.
I pretend to be strong.
Don’t come over the wall I’ve put up in front of myself.
Don’t throw me off this island in this wide sea.
John Watson’s LTSD (Lack of Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Why does the idea persist that John has PTSD? He demonstrably doesn’t have PTSD.
He has the opposite of PTSD. His characterization hinges on the fact that rather than needing to process fear and trauma, John needs more fear and trauma to be psychologically healthy. Mycroft diagnoses it in ASIP, Sherlock cures John of his supposed PTSD with danger and fear, and his supposed limp with running and jumping over cars. His symptoms only come back when he gets so bored and restless that he gains 7 pounds and takes up cycling (at least a bit of daily danger in an urban environment) to try and cope.
What she means: What is the point of Timmy Todd in Batman: the Animated Series? I mean, you gave the kid Jason Todd’s origin story, his father is Two-Face’s lackey who was killed like Willis Todd, he has Jason smart-ass personality. Hell, he was even victimized and quit being Robin after a bad encounter with the Joker. So why did you go to the trouble of calling him Tim Drake when he’s very clearly not Tim Drake? the only noticeable trait he retains is his interest in Batman but not nearly to the extent the real Tim has. Why did the creators decide to give us Jason Todd in every way but his name? If it was to spare Jason’s less than happy origin, they should have actually told Tim’s less tragic backstory. I don’t understand it. Why would cartoons once again deny us Jason Todd for no foreseeable reason?
This Is Gospel (Piano Version) - Panic! At The Disco
This is gospel for the fallen ones Locked away in permanent slumber Assembling their philosophies From pieces of broken memories (This is the beat of my heart) Their gnashing teeth and criminal tongues Conspire against the odds But they haven’t seen the best of us yet
If you love me, let me go These words are knives and often leave scars The fear of falling apart Truth be told, I never was yours The fear of falling apart
This is gospel for the vagabonds Ne'er-do-wells and insufferable bastards Confessing their apostasies Led away by imperfect impostors (This is the beat of my heart) Don’t try to sleep through the end of the world And bury me alive ‘Cause I won’t give up without a fight
Oh gosh. Actually I tend not to really think about Coulson outside of someone mentioning him but….I dislike him for a few reason.
1) To me he’s tragically boring. Like I understand the spook/secret agent in a suit thing can be really cool and funny and I generally liked Coulson in the movies BEFORE the Avengers because he wasn’t really supposed to be that interesting. Actually I didn’t even realize he was the same guy. But that’s what he’s supposed to be. He’s supposed to be a nameless suit that does his job for Fury and is super efficient. I kind of didn’t really WANT to know about Coulson. He was never on my list of “WOW. I wonder what that guy gets up to in his own time”.
On the other hand its kind of interesting that he was fleshed out a little more in Avengers. But I wasn’t shelling out ten bucks a pop to see Coulson.
2) He’s taken over both canon and fandom wise in ways that really bother me. We were given Maria Hill right? A badass motherfucker who got shit done and was Fury’s right hand man. But now Coulson is here and HE’S more important. Why? Because he was in all the movies. Also, he was brought back to life to head a show that could have easily have been Maria Hill and a gang of badass SHIELD ladies kicking ass. Instead THAT show was headed by Coulson, another white dude, two white british kids?? and Ming Na. Skye is pretty cool but again it was a tragically boring show until Cap 2 kicked everyone in the ass and made the MCU interesting again.
Essentially…I dislike him because he’s very boring and he wasn’t NEEDED when we had far more interesting people that already existed in the comics that they could have brought over. I would have loved to see Brand or even Maria calling the shots. Its kind of sad that BECAUSE Maria is “A TOTAL BADASS” that she couldn’t do Coulson’s role as well??
Also the killing thing was totally fine and I get it. They “Needed the push” but then it was all pointless? Because he was totally fine? Like did AoS ever address that? Does he ever freak out about getting stabbed through the gut? I lost a tooth once and I still freak out about that I mean that’s some pretty interesting development that I guess hasn’t been addressed?
Also they brought him over to the comics and while I kind of get it why they’d want to do that for Fury they gave Fury Jr this whole backstory with Coulson on how they were super close army buddies and he called Coulson “Cheese” and before its revealed who either of them are i was like Awww cool. Battle Buddies!
And then that got dropped too.
Like everytime they try to make him interesting they either drop it or move on to something else and I just cannot bring myself to care about this little mayonnaise jar in a suit.
like…. i fully realize it might not be (and probably isn’t) a wedding. that is entirely possible and it will not reflect upon or take away from my enjoyment of the scene in any way, because i will still have killian jones and his TLs in a scene at a wishing well together and it will kill me dead.
but since it also is just as likely TO be a wedding (all the foreshadowing, snowing parallels, liam having the authority to marry them a la lancelot, lake nostos water for snowing/rumbelle being married by the wishing well in s3, the fact that emma is willing to share her heart with killian and wants to move in with him and is otherwise ready to commit to a future with him, and now she’s found him and they’re in the UW together and here’s his brother, and they have this secret moment to make a promise to each other)…. i am going to be excited about the possibility. you don’t have to be “well i shouldn’t get my hopes up” all the time. i personally would say my hopes are up all the time, lol. sometimes that works out, sometimes it doesn’t. but it never takes away from my enjoyment of CS and my delight with what we DO get.
so yes. it damn well could be a secret wedding before there’s another one at season’s end, once they’ve rescued killian and can commit to a ceremony with the whole family. i’ve said before that all this pain and trial makes no sense if you’re just going to have CS go back to dating. there’s no way that works as an emotional payoff. and now you have a scene that COULD, if such a thing were to happen, be that fanfic scenario we’ve dreamed about where liam gets to be the one to marry them and see his little brother safe and happy before he moves on to his final rest.
that is worthy of some a-grade freaking out. hence that is what i am going to do. so yes.
In the comics, in the 80's Cap briefly toys with the idea of running for president.... Imagine that MCU Steve runs and wins, imagine President Steve Rogers
“What even is this
nonsense?” Steve cries, throwing down his pen. He leans back in the Oval Office
surrounded by Rhodey and some other higher-ups. “What do you mean the
Conservatives are filibustering again. That’s the fourth time this week!”
“I know, Mr.
President, but there really isn’t anything we can do.”
“The hell there isn’t!
Someone get their ass down there and tell them to shove it up their ass.”
Rhodey clears his
throat. “I think that’s exactly what they’re filibustering about…”
incredulous. “I thought we solved gay rights a month ago!”
“Ehhh, maybe not…?”
“Well just fuck me
in the ass.”
“Don’t let them hear
you say that.”
“I don’t give a
flying fuck. People are people. They can fuck whomever they want. They can
marry whomever they want. Everyone deserves the same rights as citizens and as

but unfortunately we’ve got some pretty bull headed people down there.”
“I’ll give them bull

dozen Secret Service agents.

Steve sighs. “Fine,

“Sure you will,”
Rhodey says reassuringly.
When he leaves the
Oval Office he rubs two fingers along the bridge of his nose. And he thought keeping
Tony Stark in line was difficult. Jesus Christ, President Steve ‘Captain
America’ Rogers was an entirely new ballgame.
