May 9, 2016 - Prince Harry’s interview with First Lady Michelle Obama aired where they talked about the Invictus Games and having Prince George stop in for a visit during their dinner together earlier in the year.
Holy shit! Scott Lang is so tiny and adorable! How did he ever end up with you guys? (Did he use his adorableness to steal things or???)
Hank: He’s my apprentice. He’ll be the next Antman when I hang up my cape. As far as ending up with us, he happened to break into my house and get into my suit vault. On a dare. And I decided he’d be better working with us as a hero than in Juvie.
On that note, I always think a moment that really sums up how Ed is a ridiculous pile of issues who broods occasionally for short periods but you should never characterize him as a melancholy brooder is this one moment in the manga where Greedling warns him not to regret things later and Ed is like “HAHA SO WHAT MY ENTIRE LIFE HAS BEEN A LESSON IN REGRET!” like…not in a dour way but very clearly in a “ARGUMENT-WINNING REPLY BY EDWARD ELRIC, SUCK ON THAT GREED” way and his companions are basically like “why are you bragging about that???”
That demonstrates so many things about Ed- he’s flawed and he’s fucked up a bunch, and nobody is more aware of that than him, he is filled with guilt, he stumbles, but ultimately he’s gonna take that shit and own it and try to learn from it (and I just realized this moment foreshadows the whole “lesson without pain” speech)and basically just be completely ridiculous about everything. “I suck but on to the next thing, gonna keep at it woohoo!!!!”
If I can’t imagine a version of Ed basically saying “WELL I’LL HAVE YOU KNOW I AM A HUMAN DISASTER” super enthusiastically and aggressively, it’s not Ed to me. It’s such a bizarre, but ultimately really uplifting contrast you don’t see a lot, so it’s what makes him actually pretty interesting to me.
because of everything that’s been going on I haven’t been able to take birthday photos like we did last year, so I’ve left you with some re-edited b-day pics from last year and a few other photos I’ve been neglecting to edit and post over the last year.
I love this kid so much and I’m so excited for the time we have ahead of us. before his third birthday I will hopefully add another member to our little family, continue to work with Aang on his reactivity and fear issues, and continue to grow and learn as a dog owner. Aang has taught me so much and I genuinely do not know where I’d be without him.
Happy birthday to my lucky little Indian street urchin.
