Happy February!! 💙

...or, you know, some of us think Cap is and was right about the whole thing because we're also opposed to the real-world implementation of similar fascist legislation such as The Patriot Act and it has nothing to do with liking him more?

That quote basically says, yes oversight is the right ethical and logical choice, but Cap is a good person, and that puts us in a quandary and I am saying that that is bad math.

It’s also a similar bad math that comes up in A LOT of 616 CW discussions, where Captain America himself (and the anti-reg side) essentially takes the position to non-metas that they should accept that metas occupy a position above the law/beyond equal prosecution by the law, because, you know, they’re different, and their circumstances are different, but you trust CAPTAIN AMERICA, riiiiight? Let the metas judge their own and police their own, what do you need the Constitutional right of equality under the law for? Obviously, this base position is immediately complicated by the clusterfuck of everything else in CW, but I’d argue that that’s deliberate. It’s one of the reasons I’m not a fan of the event, because I really like Cap, and I hate the things it makes him argue and I find them antithetical to him as a character.

I also don’t exactly get why so many people find a difference of opinion on a comics event, or, apparently, an actor’s opinion on an upcoming film none of us have seen as a personal challenge? I mean?? Yes I hate fascism? And the Patriot Act? And I think Cap’s political position is largely wrong in CW though I understand why, as the plot is manipulated, he fights? These things are not incompatible?

I get what you’re saying, but I’m responding to the quote as written and many, *many* other posts and comics CW itself, which initially sets up the problem as a constitutional legal problem of supers as American citizens whose identities allow them to avoid legal repercussions and prosecution and that’s constitutionally unacceptable under the law. Once that actually gets stated, there’s a problem.  

I’m not talking about the Patriot Act here, which I abhor, because it wasn’t part of the quote or what I was responding to, and I think the CW treatment of post-9/11 politics was really terrible, tone-deaf, and inconsistent in its understanding of xenophobia** and power dynamics. 

behind the cut

 for long rambly stuff about comics CW that’s more for future reference to point anyone to should they ask.

just some bts prompts

VMIN:

  • Taehyung goes to a club meeting for the food. Then he meets Jimin, and has another excuse to start attending.
  • Who knew two strangers could bond so easily at 3am from across each other’s balconies? Or: in which Taehyung and Jimin find themselves talking to each other when they can’t sleep at night.
  • It’s not that Jimin still isn’t in love. It’s not like Jimin is cheating. But distance is always a hard thing to conquer, and Jimin could not say he wasn’t falling all over again and have somebody prove it as the truth. Or: in which Namjoon is too far away and Jimin might be losing love, losing sleep, but gaining fondness for another man named Tae.
  • Taehyung complains about having to fill in for Seokjin’s tutoring lesson because Seokjin’s sick (and wants those funds). But then Taehyung finds out that he’s going to be tutoring Jimin, and sees how nice of a guy he is… Taehyung may or may not end up begging Seokjin to get sick more often.

YOONSEOK:

  • It was all a joke. The flirting, the lovey dovey eye contact, the touching. So why did Hoseok’s heart start to flutter in the midst of it all? Or: in which Yoongi and Hoseok bet against jikook that they could totally be a cuter couple than them, and accidently fall for each other anyways.
  • Hoseok befriends a fairy named Suga during his childhood. Then, one day he disappears, and Hoseok forgets all about him. Once high school starts, however, he suddenly gets deja vu meeting this upperclassman named Yoongi. Will he be able to connect the pieces together? (Honestly, I imagine this as a shoujo manga.)
  • Tangled AU. Hoseok as Rapunzel, Yoongi as Eugene.
  • Hoseok’s getting married. Yoongi, his best friend, gets dragged into playing the piano/organ for the wedding. It’s supposed to be a happy day, the happiest day of Hoseok’s life, but Yoongi has been too in love with him to really enjoy the ceremony.
  • Yoongi works as a CEO at a pretty non-environmental company. Hoseok is a journalist that doesn’t like seeing nature get destroyed. When things collide… 
  • Yoongi doesn’t really know how he fell in love with a stranger so quickly. No, he wasn’t in love, he supposed. He was just fascinated with his delicate movements, the look in the dancer’s eyes when he was front and center in the formation, and the smile that illuminated his face as he skipped to the side with ease. No, Yoongi wasn’t in love. Yoongi was enlightened. Or: in which Yoongi stumbles upon Hoseok’s street dancing, and finds himself coming back to the same place every night.
  • Time was always a difficult thing to handle in the business of love. You were either too early, or too late to the chase. But sometimes, if you were lucky, the universe would align and that one moment would happen perfectly, in the right place, at the right time. Sometimes. Or: in which Yoongi’s had trouble dealing with love and Hoseok might be the one that ends the struggle after all.

MISC:

  • Taehyung and Namjoon had been friends since they were young, even if they were an age apart. But lately, they’ve been drifting apart. Maybe they just belonged in the past. Maybe the past should just stay where it was, and stay there in his memories. Or: in which two best friends fall apart, but eventually find their way back to each other.
  • In which Namjoon’s fallen in too deep for Seokjin, and Seokjin is a dense bastard. Taehyung laughs in the background. 
  • Yoongi and Seokjin argue about a wedding’s decorations prices at said wedding. 
  • Seokjin gets caught looking at his reflection in a van’s windows. The van belongs to Yoongi.

I really love them a lot guys…

movie idea: modern adaption of the persephone myth, where hades is a top secret spy (with hades being his alias because they all based their aliases on greek myths, just go with it) and persephone is a rival spy he “captured” except she actually planned for that to happen so she could get into his secret command center and learn his secrets/weaknesses/shit but then it turns out the whole time hades was scheming against the real bad guy, codename zeus, so the two rivals have to grudgingly team up to defeat him, along with persephone’s retired ex-spy mother (codename demeter of course) who is especially pissed because zeus is of course her asshole little brother who has no fucking respect

hi I love making pointless new ocs

I have finally finished the avatars for my Egg @nope-zero (Claptrap) and me  (◡‿◡✿)

I wonder if people would be interested in Avatar commissions from me …

these days I don’t feel like much more
than a silhouette, these days when sleep
means turn off the lights and write in the dark,
word by word through the paling gleam
of morning. midnight is child’s play now,
and I haven’t struck gold but I’ll call it art.
 
it means: lean into a lonely street lamp’s
amber glow, into glass bleeding bright
as flame. run ghostly fingertips along
the blanket fort drifting, velvet blue-grey,
down over half the world.
 
it means: melt and swirl, dissolve, spirit
lost as smoke and real as memory,
flooding and flooded. it means that I, here,
think of honey-voiced storytellers,
bedrooms for theatres, imagination
filling gilded seats, the show that starts
when everyone falls asleep.
 
these days, find me tracing a pen along
a phantom’s smile; find me writing
in the dark, writing a shadow’s answer
to the bursting bloom of my daydreams.
