On his adventures with the Inquisitor, the Iron Bull discovers a baby hart that has fallen down a cliff. He rescues it, because he is a giant soft marshmallow, and it is making a very sad honk.
he doesn’t mean to do it, but he names it Imekari (because Qunlat has no other words for small things that you want to protect)
Imekari recovers from her mishap in short order, and decides that the Iron Bull is now her mother. I mean, no one else here has antlers.
He tries to leave her with Horsemaster Dennet. Dennet knows…. animals, right?
Dennet brings her back two hours later, and Bull hears them coming, because Imekari is making the saddest, most terribly tragic, extremely loud, honking. She’s been separated from her mother, what else can she do? She has no other way to communicate her sadness and distress. So honking it is. (you know when you’re riding a hart, and you gallop, and they make that noise? you know the one. It’s that noise, but tinier, and also louder, and much more likely to haunt your dreams.)
She’s discovered that making this noise will cause everyone around her to do what she wants. She decides this is a good noise, and she should make it more in the future.
And that’s the story of how the Iron Bull recruited the first Charger who can actually charge.
I really wish I could make an effective spell that punishes racism in cops. I’m white, but I’m so, so tired of waking up and seeing another hashtag, another viral video of a black person with their hands up being shot to death. I can only imagine how the black community feels. I saw a story this morning about a kid who wanted to hug cops so they weren’t afraid of him. A kid. A little black boy already asking cops not to be afraid of him because of the color of his skin.
If my magic can’t bring justice on behalf of others, what is it good for? I’m so heartbroken, and I wish I could help more.
So, this is pretty shocking. 234 girls were abducted from their boarding school in Chibok in Nigeria on April 15th. Most of them are between the ages of 16 and 18. It is known that they were abducted by the terrorist group Boko Haram, and it is believed that the girls are being sold as wives, and are now involved in human traficking. It is even known roughly where they are being kept.
There has been very little response from the Nigerian government, in fact even telling international media that a large number had been found when they hadn’t. The Nigerian army is also very inefficient at dealing with this kind of crisis. The Nigerian people have been holding mass protests and fundraising to send out private search parties into the jungle. Now there is a call for international governments to lend a hand, these girls have done nothing to deserve to suffer at the hands of a corrupt and unjust government.
As usual with third world affairs, I’ve seen very little about this on tumblr, and there’s been an international social media campaign to raise awareness about this. Can you imagine in 234 girls went missing from the UK, USA or Europe?! If you call yourself a feminist, then you have a duty to care about women’s rights internationally, and this a pretty big infringement of those rights.
In Mid-April nearly 300 girls between the ages of 16 to 18 who were pursuing their right to education were kidnapped from a government school in Northern Nigeria, for the sole purpose to be sold and married off. The terrorist group who did this are called Boko Haram (which means “Western Education is sin”), whose purpose is too deny the right of education for women and to deny people of “non-islamic” traditions. Let us join together to fight this act of terrorism and bring awareness to the world that we must set an example, that people have a right to education. BRING BACK OUR GIRLS FOR THEY ARE NOT FOR SALE.

imagine: bucky still falls off the train, and steve into the arctic, but instead of bucky being found with the russians he had fallen into the river and went under the same thing cap did and so when 2012 rolls around and cap’s been found and some bloke (probably coulson) with too much money and sentimentality goes “wait, what iF” and starts a search for bucky’s body, because if the captain was found, what about his ol’ pal bucky?
and lo and behold, they find the body. it’d taken a long time, but they found it. and, due to zola experimenting on bucky, he wakes up just like steve
and like, really just like steve, since he panics and freaks out and throws two people through the door even with just one arm, but eventually he calms down enough to listen to what’s going on (probably to natasha). he’s briefed on the way back to the states where someone had pulled steve from a mission and they were gonna surprise him
and natasha warns him, “he’s not gonna believe it’s you you’re gonna have to convince him,” and bucky just goes “oh, he’ll know it’s me alright” which sounds kind of ominous to natasha
and he walks into the room with steve and the other avengers and the first thing he says “did you get a new uniform? i hate it”
“yeah it’s me,” bucky says as he walks up to steve, who is understandably in a lot of shock and confusion.
then bucky just punches steve in the face.
“I WAS DEAD FOR LIKE A DAY AND YOU NOSE DIVE INTO THE ARTIC?!”
“YOU FUCKING STUPID PUNK I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS. were you just like “my impulse control fell outta the train with bucky” and thought crashing the plane and not giving your coordinates was a good idea?! and i thought that time in brussels was bad but you’ve really outdone yourself this time! anD DON’T GET ME STARTED ON THE ALIENS JFC STEVE ten fucking days outta the ice and do you do the logical thing like, go on a vacation or figure out what you’ve missed? nO”
and continues to just rip into him, to the bewilderment of everyone in the room. then when bucky tires himself out and stops yelling the other avengers think steve’s gonna rip HIM a new one but he just goes “bucky” and clings to him
“yeah it’s me you stupid punk you don’t have to blubber all over me” he says though he’s crying too.
and the rest of the avengers are like ????? because they were expecting a lot of things but not this
“You don’t get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done. So all the boys, and all the bars, and all the obvious Daddy issues, who cared? Because I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I’m all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don’t get to call me a whore.”
