flips planes

Okay so I know we all flipped out over the plane rescue scene but I also know a bunch of us were left confused as to how Supergirl, who carried a 1 million ton ship back into space, couldn’t hold on to both sides of the plane until it was pointed out that it had nothing to do with Kara’s strength but the strength of the plane itself.

And they’re completely right because the plane is weak and starting to crumble so Kara really couldn’t hold onto both without both sides of the plane giving out. This brings me to my next point, which is gay.

Even with Kara holding onto Lena’s hand like we see at the end, she still can’t adjust her grip on the other side of the plane, meaning…

what most likely happened is Lena had to climb onto Kara and hold onto her so that Kara has both of her hands free to hold the plane and make sure it doesn’t give way.

The scene is actually gayer than what we saw.

My ideal coming out scene for Steve

Avengers are flying out on a mission, steve and Bucky are jumping out first to scout the area bc they are Sneaky Super Soldiers. They approach the jump zone and steve says something like “stay safe Buck, I’ve got your back” or some corny shit.

Bucky turns from the open door and uses his metal hand to pull steve into a gentle but insistent kiss before running to dive out of the plane. All without changing his expression from winter-soldier determined because he is a fucking bad ass.

Now we have the endless possibilities of team reactions. I give you Thor, looking joyfully clueless as always; happy for his friends and their Warrior Embrace without any idea something significant just happened. Natasha, with a knowing, I-knew-it smirk. Sam nodding to himself like alright, that’s cool, shoulda seen that coming. Clint and Wanda with equally shocked I thought we were the only ones with secret relationships faces. Vision and Banner looking perplexed and impressed respectively with the unpredictability of humans. T'Challa not giving a shit because he already knew - hello he was there for Bucky being re-frozen and asking for steve every time he was thawed.

A dumbfounded Tony just sputters, standing up before steve can follow.

“B-but I thought you had that long-lost love affair with Peggy!”

Steve’s face softens. “She’ll always be my girl.”

Tony’s still confused. “What about that-uh Sharon chick?”

Steve shrugs indifferently. “She was cute.”

“I don’t-”

“It’s called being bisexual,” Steve interrupts with a grin. “Look it up, you can google it now.”

And that little rascal, proud as FUCK for understanding how google works now, gives his team a sassy salute before flipping out of the plane after his boyfriend.

What are “loops” and “grips”? And an easy way to visualize them

 Imagine your functions as the crew in the cockpit of an airplane. Your dominant function is the pilot. Auxiliary is the copilot, who sits beside the pilot. Behind them is your tertiary function, who’s minding the gas, pressure, and oxygen gauges. In the rear of the cockpit is your inferior function. Their job is to watch for incoming objects and whatnot via a window in the back. They’re not good for very much, but an extra check is always nice, I suppose.

Normally, this is how the functions work. Your dominant and auxiliary functions take the lead, while the tertiary and inferior functions act as assistants. However, things can go wrong in the cockpit. Two of these are called loops and grips. Let us take a look at what those are.


All of a sudden the plane begins to go a little haywire, and tertiary function is getting stressed out because the gauges are starting to freak out. Auxiliary turns and says, “Dammit, tertiary, let me see,” and heads over to the back seat and has tertiary take the role of copilot. Tertiary is not quite sure of what to do here, but tries their very best to manage as dominant’s right-hand man. Some things go wrong when piloting the plane; sometimes they go very wrong. But eventually auxiliary scoots back up to the copilot seat and tertiary returns to minding the gauges. During this time, dominant cannot do very much because their job is the most important of all and they cannot take their eyes off of the path.

During a loop, instead of your dominant function working in tandem with your auxiliary function, it works with your tertiary function. Your tertiary function, being a low function, is not very developed compared to your auxiliary function, and your cognition fails to some degree. You may act impulsively at times, and you may act somewhat normally at times. Either way, something is wrong. Additionally, because your tertiary function is undeveloped, the result is that you will use that function, but in an ineffective way. For example, a loop with tertiary Ni might try and fail to look at things “deeply,” or a loop with tertiary Te might look to get lots of homework done and, although the homework might be finished, it has been completed with incorrect answers written down without much thought. Your auxiliary function takes the role as backup to your dominant and tertiary functions during this time. However, you eventually break the loop and return to normal with the possibility of being left with some mild to moderate cognitive damage. You will recover from this damage.


Inferior function is bored, so they sneak up to the front of the cockpit. They know that it is a terrible idea to do anything to dominant, so they push auxiliary out of their chair and jump into it instead. Auxiliary tries to get up, but inferior is so excited to try out the copilot’s controls instead of staring out of a window that they more or less just push buttons and pull switches, making the plane flip, whip, and dip in every direction. As much as tertiary and auxiliary might yell at them, inferior is too captivated at this point to listen and simply acts on their own impulse and whim. After some time, auxiliary finally gains their balance for just long enough to rip the controls from inferior, return them to the back of the cockpit, and proceed to re-stabilize the plane. Again, dominant cannot take their eyes off of the path and they know that if they stop doing their job, a crash would almost surely ensue.

A grip is just like a loop, but with your inferior function displacing your auxiliary instead of your tertiary. Your inferior function is far less developed than your tertiary, and it, in its inexperience, dominates both the tertiary and auxiliary functions, causing you to act impulsively and without regard to the efforts of the rest of your functions. For example, a grip with inferior Se might cause you to binge eat and engage in physically dangerous activities, or a grip with inferior Ti might cause you to miraculously find “logical” justification for your each and every action, even if those actions are blameworthy or destructive. During this time, your auxiliary and tertiary functions are essentially ignored. Fortunately, a grip does not last forever and you will return to normal, albeit with some possible cognitive or even real life damage. You can, of course, recover.

PLEASE send a message if you think or see that I am incorrect about any of this. 

- an INTJ

I would like a what/if episode, but it was about the plane crash and what happened after and we would get to see:

  • What if Alex got on the plane instead of Arizona? Since Arizona was never on the plane did she end up cheating on Callie?
  • What if Mark and Lexie survived the crash?
  • What would happen if Alex lost his leg?
  • Would they still win the money in the lawsuit? 
  • Would they still buy the hospital?

And the episode starts with us seeing the back of a brown haired woman lying in bed and then she roles over and its Lexie and they pan out to show Mark and Lexie lying in bed and Lexie has a ring on a very special finger.

Jeff flips the plane into autopilot and spins his chair around to face the little boy sitting behind him. He smiles and pats his lap. "Alright, Tiger. Ready for your turn?"

Scott’s head’s been pressed against the window since they took off. His eyes are huge and as blue as the sky as he watches the big puffy clouds swirl like giant floating marshmallows. Everything else looks so tiny down there on the ground. Scott can’t wait ‘til he’s as massive as dad and can finally reach all the controls of his own plane. Dad promised it’d be the biggest plane! The shiniest, fastest plane the world’s ever seen. Scott wants it to be blue like the sky and his bedroom at home.

Scott loves blue. The sky looks real blue over dad’s shoulder as he squeals an excited, “Yessir!” and clambers up, all elbows and feet, head barely sticking up above the controls of the plane.

“Ground control, this is Tracy!” Scott tells the radio that gave them the all clear and said to have a good flight, “We gonna go real fast today! A million miles!” The little boy carefully puts his hands on the controls, being real careful not to move any ‘cause dad said it’s dangerous to play with all the gadgets and levers.

“This one?” Scott’s fingers barely meet around the biggest lever, set to the side.

Favorite marecal and mareven moment

Before I knew mareven was a trap I always thought it was adorable that maven told mare “you don’t ever have to thank me, not for anything” because it was just sO PURE AND SOfT but now I know he’s a trash demon so

Same with cal I thought the earring part in kc was adorable and tbh it kinda made me yell when I read it but now that he left her I want mare to chuck that earring out the side of a plane whilst flipping it off

thethroneoffirenowbelongstome  asked:

with a blog name like that i wouldve guessed you were a yank, unless the martini refers to the old British rifle. Remember the good old scandal around the F-104 starfighter or widowmaker if you will back in the 80's

Martini refers to the drink 😅🍸 even if I’m more partial to scotch. Can’t remember why I chose it at the time.

And oh boy the Starfighter scandal, the plane that could do nothing right other than go fast in straight lines, yet Lockheed managed to market successfully to most NATO air forces, ensuing in loss rates as high as 50% due to accidents? Now that era produced many bad planes, but none so widely used as the F104, which does leave you wondering how much money Lockheed was paying out to government officials.

Other F104 issues: horrific landing characteristics, high alpha manoeuvres starved the elevator of air and flipped the plane, the Vulcan 20mm cannon blew the plane apart in testing, the wing was so sharp that it would injure ground crew who caught themselves on it, and it had utterly zero space for the pilot to look around.

Cool name though.

“Hello?” Sara picked up her phone that hadn’t actually made a noise in a few months because of her timeline jumping.

“Oh good,” a familiar voice answered. “You wouldn’t happen to know how to land a plane would you?”


“You see, I have broken out of captivity, only to be kidnapped again. While in the air, I threw the guards out the window,” Nyssa quickly rambled, “And may have killed the pilot. The problem being, I don’t know how to fly or more importantly land a plane.”

“So you called me?”

Mike let out a quiet sigh as he stepped onto the pier and into his little plane, flying up and looking for his new target, all he knew about her being that she was a mermaid. "Hm, where could she be?"

From the depths where Cala is resting, she sees a little plane flying overhead. From deep underwater, she watches the plane go, following along to try and figure out where it’s headed. 
She swims away from her school of friends, and bursts through the surface of the water in front of the plane, flipping her hair back with a big, toothy grin. 
In comparison to the tiny plane, and the even tinier person inside it, she looks like a whale breeching the surface of the water, only much more beautiful, and much more deadly.


Camille Squidly and Nebula Sevenstar are the fresh young daughters of Callie and Marie. Living in the future city of New Inkopolis, they carve out their own destinies  in life. One day though, a producer propositions them with an amazing offer, become the Squid Sisters for a new generation.

What will the two girls be put through on their first try at show business? Will it be too much for them? Will they be able to succeed their mothers’ popularity? Will they make it in the end– and most importantly, will they make it together?
