It’s interesting to watch SU with my husband. Since he’s not in the fandom (or any fandom for that matter), talking to him I get the perspective of a casual viewer.

He told me recently that he hasn’t been enjoying the show as much lately because it seems like “it’s mostly filler episodes” with not much going on to advance the plot. Keep in mind that he said that with no prompting from me, nor does he know anything about the SU critical trend.

It just goes to show that this SU critical stuff doesn’t come from nowhere. Even casual viewers are noticing this stuff.

say what you will about the loz manga but i think we can all agree that the best adaptation that conveys what the canon scene is like within the whole series is when Link needs a canon for Linebeck’s ship in Phantom Hourglass and Eddo’s acting like “it’s expensive af kid, i don’t wanna cause you a heart attack upon telling you the amount” and then goes on to say “IT’S 50 RUPEES YOU GOT THAT MUCH??” flapping his casted arm like a bird

and then Link’s all “‘50 RUPEES’ ????” because we all know that’s jack shit and a freaking steal but then Linebeck’s like “shit that’s expensive” even tho it’s fucking not and then Eddo’s all “i’ll give it to you for free if you really convince me that you want it”

HOLY SHIT! FOR FREE?? THAT’S EVEN MORE OF A STEAL. IN FACT IT IS A STEAL! And so Link (you, the player) starts declaring in a firm voice that you want that canon but Eddo’s laughing at your lame attempts and so you gradually get louder and louder until you look like a fool screaming into your DS microphone with a mouth big enough for a motherfucking honeycomb

until you’ve caused mass destruction in order to get an item that will only allow you to cause even more mass destruction

just for you to pass out from yelling so loudly but you finally get the damn canon for free

On July 04, 1974, Ted and Liz went rafting when Ted pushed Liz into the waters :

“About an hour later, I was sitting on the edge of the raft, paying attention to nothing in particular, when suddenly and without warning, Ted lunged at me, put his hands on my shoulders and pushed me into the river. The plunge into the icy water took my breath away. I came up sputtering and grabbed the rope on the edge of the raft, too dazed for the moment to do more than hang on. I looked up at Ted and our eyes locked. His face had gone blank, as though he was not there at all. I had a sense that he wasn’t seeing me. I struggled to pull myself into the raft. He didn’t move, he didn’t speak. I could find no expression on his face.Why do you have to ruin everything?” I began when I could finally talk. “That’s not funny at all.He still looked at me as if I were a stranger. Then he looked away and said, “It was no big deal. Can’t you take a joke?”” - The Phantom Prince

What was it like, seeing yourself as Capt. America for the first time?

“Uh, terrifying. Because I think the first time I saw it, it was back when I was still pretty, um…insecure, and a little apprehensive about taking the role. So, it was — it was a real dichotomy. There was a simultaneous joy, but at the same time, a deep fear. But that’s eroded over time, and now it’s very familiar, and it feels very comfortable, … It feels great now, and damn, if I had said no, I would have been the biggest fool on the planet.”
