did i say awesome

ALRIGHT PEOPLE

SO

I rewatched Winter Soldier last night (because literally what else am I supposed to do the night before I see Civil War)

And it was still great. Obviously. But you know what the best scene is?

None of the awesome action scenes. None of the Stucky fanfic fuel. None of the scenes with Falcon (somehow? Falcon’s so freaking awesome, I can’t believe I just said that he’s not the best part of a thing he’s in).

No.

The best scene is this one:

Remember this? Basically, Cap just told everyone over the intercom about Hydra infiltrating Shield, and how, if you’re not Hydra, trust no one, and fight back if you can. 

In the speech, Cap acknowledges that “If I stand alone” (that is, if no one wants to step up, because, fun fact, guns are really scary), then so be it.

And then Hydra’s resident Mr. McMuscle Man Brock Rumlow up there walks up to this lowly Launch Technician (Cameron Klein is his name, played by Aaron Himelstein) and orders him to launch Project Insight (aka Hydra’s evil plans).

Five minutes ago, Cameron had one job, and it was to press a few keys and launch this thing. Sure, he’d heard about Cap becoming a fugitive, and that was weird (and sounded kinda sketchy), but hey, he works for the good guys, right?

But now the game has changed. Launching this thing is a bad idea. 

Cameron pauses as Rumlow demands him to start it up. And Cameron refuses.

Rumlow pulls out a gun and points it straight at Cameron’s head. And Cameron panics; heck, he’s practically holding back tears already. But he still says no. “Captain’s orders,” he explains.

You know why this is the best scene in the movie? Because Cameron reminds me of someone. Someone that people watching the movie are already pretty familiar with.

Cameron is the guy who may not have the muscle or the skills to be a soldier or a spy, but he wanted to help make the world a better place, so he did what he could. He got a job at Shield, he followed the orders of people he thought he could trust, and when he realized the truth, he stood his ground and did the right thing. He hasn’t gone through any training, he has no powers or skills or suits of armor. He didn’t even know Sharon Carter was armed and would be able to get him out of harm’s way. He thought he was about to die. But he wasn’t going to stand by and let evil triumph.

And that’s despite the fact that Cap had EXPLICITLY given him permission to do so. That’s what he meant by “If I stand alone.” Cap was saying that if there’s a gun pointed to your head, it’s not cowardly to give up. That’s okay. It doesn’t make you a bad person. If a grenade gets tossed your way, you’re allowed to run away.

But Cameron chose to jump on top of the grenade instead.

I’ve heard people say “Steve Rogers is a hero with or without the serum,” and other people say that’s kind of a cheesy thing to say, but if you want proof of that statement, Cameron is it. In a 90-second or so scene, this movie perfectly emulated what it means to be a hero even if you have a desk job. Even if you don’t look like you take steroids. Even if nothing eventful has ever happened to you until one moment when everything in your life changes, YOU CAN STILL BE A HERO.

I don’t care if that sounds cheesy or hokey. This scene is incredible. Cameron Klein is incredible - so incredible, in fact, that he got a cameo in Age of Ultron on Fury’s Helicarrier.

Yeah, someone (I’m guessing Sharon) was so freaking impressed at his bravery that they recommended him to serve on Fury’s staff (and, after Winter Soldier, the amount of people Fury trusted could probably be counted on one hand). And he’s in charge of the evacuation - which was LITERALLY THE REASON Fury shows up at all. Not military backup, not surveillance. Evacuation of civilians. And Fury gave Cameron that responsibility.

Because that  guy up there may be the face of a nerd, or a gofer, or a desk clerk.

But it’s also the face of a person who won’t back down. Even when his world is being turned upside down, even when his life is on the line, this is the face of a man who will always do the right thing.

This is the face of a hero.

Now, Marvel’s Damage Control is an upcoming TV show about the normal folks. The ones without powers who always seem to be in the background but may have a lot more depth than they let on.

And I’m gonna try not to be too upset if I don’t see this guy’s name in the cast list, but man I’m hoping I do, because Cameron Klein is a hero.

Summary/Request from anon: Could you do a Steve Harrington imagine in variation of the locker room screen in Riverdale (1x03) when Veronica confronts Chuck about slut shaming her but with Stranger Things where it was Billy (as Chuck) who’s slut shaming the reader’s best friend and in this equation she bumps into Steve (as Archie) and she gets kicked out by a teacher but doesn’t get in trouble because she’s a good kid but is still pissed and somehow she and Steve end up together?

Warnings: Mentions of sexual acts and some strong language.  

You were walking down the halls when you saw a group of girls snigger at you and your best friend. 

Your best friend turned bright red and put her head down. 

“Hey, what was that about?” You asked her. She turned into the bathroom and you followed. You watched her make sure it was empty before opening up to you. 

“You know how I had that date with the new guy, Billy?” She whispered. 

“Yeah, of course, why?” You frowned, knowing whatever was coming next wasn’t going to be good.

The Observer laughing at Noah v. Noah laughing at Noah

They’re similar in circumstance, but… 

The Observer sounds like he genuinely thinks it’s hysterical. Future Noah sounds like he’s chasing prey when he knows it can’t get away, and it’s amusing to watch it try.

o0o-chibaken-o0o appreciation post

so a lot of content creators talk a big talk about the importance of interacting and commenting on other writers’ or artists’ work but don’t necessarily walk the walk - they just expect their content to receive this treatment.

well, if there is anybody who walks the walk (sorry this is so cheesy), it is @o0o-chibaken-o0o. if you scroll down her tumblr you you can see she SCREAMS in the tags of basically every content post she reblogs. always with nice wonderful things that make you (when it’s your work) feel super appreciated. 

and ON TOP of that, she also spends so much time on brilliant rec lists that further support and garner appreciation for other writers. and even after sharing her praise in the rec posts themselves, you will STILL find her in the tags because she can’t stop herself writing MORE nice things.

so this post is to show my appreciation back to @o0o-chibaken-o0o who is certainly very deserving of it. no one tags like her. (when would your fave EVER?) 

thank you @o0o-chibaken-o0o. we should all aspire to tag like you. 

plz like/reblog if u agree.

Okay, so I just saw a Tony and music headcanon which I absolutely and totally respect, because a classical music Tony is an awesome Tony that is a valid way of viewing the character.  However, I also completely and totally disagree with it and didn’t want to highjack that post to disagree.  Basically, fellow writer, you’re awesome and so is your headcanon which is totally valid and legit, but I’m gonna rift off it because I keep arguing with the post in my head.  

Maria started Tony on the piano at a young age.  Howard yelled and complained about how the kid could never keep still, so Maria taught him cords and basic piano warms ups.  She told him if he couldn’t keep still, he could go over the piano fingering in his mind.  He could even move his fingers if he needed to, going through the motions with his hands at his side as Howard ranted at him about how his latest robot was a failure, and keeping him still enough for photographers to take pictures of the engine while Howard put on his fake smile.

Tony would often hang in the doorway as his mother played and sang, hesitant to come in and interrupt her.  Music was numbers and frequencies and all sorts of things that were fascinating to Tony, but he couldn’t quite manage to fit them together into a song.  

It wasn’t until Maria came upon Tony struggling through “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel that she teaches him how to play music.  Maria the brilliant scientist who loved show tunes could explain to a young Tony Stark how to make music from the notes.  

From then on, Tony was a quick study.  He would often play as Maria sat by his side and sang along, from My Fair Lady to Evita, he would play and sometimes hesitantly sing along.  He fell in love with the quick wit of Cole Porter, often playing a quick bar or two and sing in a sarcastic tone when Howard railed on him for his failures.  Maria was always more fond of Irving Berlin, and he’d play “Blue Skies” whenever she was tired or angry.  

He always liked it when she played Rodgers and Hammerstein.  Sometimes she’d play “Impossible” from Cinderella when Tony felt like he couldn’t meet Howard’s high standards.  He was always mesmerized when she sang “Some Enchanted Evening” or “Something Good”. 

He sometimes thought about running away and working on Broadway.  He never had a way with lyrics, but he could compose a tune.  Surely he could find a partner and they’d create loads of shows that would become world famous.  But Howard would surely find him, so close to home, and the one time he tried to sneak off to the West End while visiting Aunt Peggy in London ended with her taking out a man who had been following Tony for nefarious purposes.  She was kind about it, but she had to take him home.  

Soon enough, he gave up on that dream and entered MIT, but he still couldn’t shake stealing away into one of the music shops and playing the occasional tune.  Some of the others found out about it and bullied him until he stopped.  But Rhodey could sometimes pull him away and ask him to play a song from The Wiz or some of the old Ella Fitzgerald jazz standards.  He also started to branch out at this time, coming up with piano versions of rock songs that he would play to make Rhodey laugh.

“Try to Remember” was the last song he heard her play before she died, and was always one of his favorites.  It was years before he could listen to the song again, much less play it.  Rhodey was the one who sat with him when he finally managed it, softly singing along even though he was never much of a singer because Tony couldn’t quite manage the words.  

Steve was shocked to hear old familiar songs coming from the Avengers common room one night when he couldn’t sleep.  He walked in to see Tony at the piano, singing some of the old Cole Porter songs.  Tony switched over to his own piano rendition of Highway to Hell as soon as he realized Steve was listening, but Steve had already found out.  After that, he’d sometimes join Tony, sitting at the piano and listening to the old tunes.  

It was during one of those times Tony admitted his mother had taught him, and he played “Try to Remember” for Steve.  It wasn’t one he recognized, but it had a soothing melody that made him think of Bucky, who he was still trying to find.  It was then Steve decided he could never tell Tony about what the Winter Soldier had done.  `Tony was finally in a place where he could play the song as a fond memory, and learning the truth would only cause more pain.  

After everything burned down, Steve only felt guilt when he heard the song or looked at a piano.  There were a lot of things he would never do differently, but not telling Tony the truth was a mistake.

After everything burned down, Tony sat at the piano, but couldn’t play.  He stared at the keys, but couldn’t will his hands to move.  When Rhodey would ask him to play, Tony would smile and say he was fine.

He’s always fine.

Sometimes Peter would hear haunting melodies of songs he had never heard before when he visited Avengers Tower.  He never found out where they came from, but he kind of liked listening to the old melancholy tunes before Tony finally showed up and gave him the latest upgrades for his suit.

Summary: “If you move back to Brooklyn, we can pick up where we left off,” Bucky said.

“Where did we leave off?” Steve asked.

Bucky had an image in his head that had never dimmed in intensity. It was a closed door. The door in his childhood apartment, and Steve was on the other side of it, walking away down the hall. Confusion grabbed at his seventeen year-old heart. He had wanted Steve back as soon as he walked away, even though he understood the reasons for him leaving. Where Bucky wanted to pick up was to figure out that strain in his heart that came after the door shut, the one he hadn’t understood, and still didn’t.

“I don’t know,” Bucky admitted.

Steve wants Bucky’s help to solve the murder of Dr. Abraham Erskine. Meanwhile, Bucky wants to find out what happened to Steve after his mysterious disappearance at seventeen.

The chocobros first thought when they saw their s/o

Noctis:

Wow she’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s like I’m staring at a goddess, maybe I should ask her out….oh god she’s looking at me. Act cool Noctis, smile, give her a nod, yeah hey girl. Is laughing good???? IS IT?! Okay she’s still looking lean on the wall! And I fell so not cool, wait she’s coming over. Haha score.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Prompto:

Oh my god she’s as cute as a chocobo. I didn’t think that was possible but there she is all…cute girl like. Maybe I can take a picture and say I was taking a picture of the ocean. Yeah nice thinking Prompto. And I got the picture, man she’s beautiful in this photo. Wait……she’s calling out to me. IS SHE MAD!? Just stay calm dude, she wants a copy of the photo. She knew, but I also got her number, awesome~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gladio:

Damn she’s still looking at me, I’m going to go and talk with her. And by talk I mean flirt with her like the world is ending tomorrow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ignis:

She is quite lovely, the way her hair falls in front of her face and how passionate  she talks about the things she loves. Her smile is like watching the sunrise on a new day, it’s absolutely beautiful. I’ve only just met her but I believe I’m already falling in love with her.

anonymous asked:

Don't forgot in No Dragon Left Behind Astrid was willing to sacrifice herself to save Stormfly, how much her artistic skills have developed since the first season, the drawing of Garf/Stormfly was freakin cool, the parallels between Astrid/Stoick, Astrid not feeling good enough for Hiccup the Chief's son and dragon master in Sandbusted and her and Hiccup being the parents of the group!

There we go, more good Astrid moments in S5. XD Moments with Astrid caring about Stormfly are something I especially appreciate.

Aftermath: Tom x Black Reader

Reader is pretty happy that Tom actually listened to her for the LSB.


You were stuck at home while Tom was off enjoying life as a young and upcoming celebrity at the MTV Movie & TV awards. Stupid finals, you thought as you scribbled over some notes. You glanced up at the TV and smiled once you saw Zendaya flash across the screen. Your reaction was greater once you saw Tom.

You clapped because you knew the Lip Sync Battle would be coming on in a few minutes. You looked over your notes one more time before getting a glass of wine and some popcorn. 


You snapped your fingers once Zendaya’s song first played. “Okay Tom.”You didn’t know what songs he used because you weren’t there during filming and e wanted it to be a surprise for you. When the sing played you screamed,”So he actually listens to me?” 

You texted him, I see you actually used my song choice…

You weren’t too sure if he would be able to text you back with all the commotion but he texted you back in less than a minute. Well love you are my greatest inspiration…keep watching❤

guess who got to watch wonder woman in all her 3D glory this afternoon

this girl

“Ga, can I ask you something?” Jimin looks up from his scroll to JiHi who is looking down at the mice meat in his hand. They are in their cabin waiting for Jungkook to come back from hunting with a plate full of mice meat as a snack before dinner (Jimin can’t wait to tell his mate at how great their pup is at hunting.)

“What is it?” Jimin asks rolling up the scroll to place it in his lap, giving his pup his full attention. JiHi looks up with a pout of confusion.

“The fat mouse. You told me I couldn’t eat it.” JiHi said “but you didn’t mind the others.” Jimin smile soften even more as he places the scroll into the basket Jungkook made him before patting his lap.

“Come JiHi.” Jimin says. JiHi walks over and easily climbs on to his Ga’s lap. Jimin brushes his hand through his pups locks “I didn’t let you because that mouse was carrying her pups.”

“Carrying pups?” JiHi repeats in confusion. Jimin nods with a smile. “But wouldn’t she taste better cause she was fat?”

“Oh no honey.” Jimin says “a good hunter never harms an animal carrying pups.”

“Why?” JiHi asks. So curious much like Jimin. Jimin cuddles JiHi to his chest and rubs his pups ear.

“Respect for life JiHi.” Jimin says “if you hunted animals with pups then we would run out of food. We want those pups born because they’re important to the survival of everyone. To their own kin and others. Also like how we don’t hunt pups, they need to be protected and grow.”

“For everyone’s survival.” JiHi says snuggling into Jimin’s embrace with a smile. Nothing feels as good as being held by his Ga. Jimin nods.

“You can’t hunt if you have no respect for your prey. A good hunter avoids animals with pups, and kills quickly. A bad hunter torments. Understand?” Jimin asks. JiHi nods pulling away to look at Jimin.

“I understand. That’s why we thank our food.” JiHi says with a smile. Jimin chuckles as he pats JiHi.

“Exactly.” Jimin says. JiHi perks up before jumping off Jimin’s lap toward the door. Jimin smiles already knowing Jungkook is about to walk in.

“Pha! Pha!” JiHi cheers as Jungkook walks into the cabin “I hunted lots of mice today!”

“You did? That’s awesome!” Jungkook says picking up his pup before walking further into the house. JiHi nods.

“Yup yup! I even let a mouse with pups go because I’m a good hunter!” JiHi says puffing out his chest. Jungkook laughs softly as he spots Jimin giggling.

“You sure are a good hunter JiHi.” Jungkook says nuzzling his pup as he walks towards his mate. Jimin meets him half way and Jungkook swoops down for a kiss, making JiHi gag. The mates laugh as they coo at their pup.

“Come here JiHi, let Pha wash up before dinner.” Jimin says holding out for their pup. JiHi nods and goes to Jimin’s embrace.

“Pha when you come back I wanna show you my hunt!” JiHi chirps “I caught so much!” Jungkook smiles looking past his family to where a plate with a pile of mouse meat sits on the floor. Jungkook felt his chest swell with pride as he looks at his pup.

“Will do.” Jungkook leans to nuzzle his pup before moving to nuzzle his mate. Jimin giggles nuzzling back before kissing Jungkook.

“Hurry back.” Jimin says and Jungkook nods with a smile.

“You have too cause Ga said so.” JiHi chimes in making his parents laugh.
