he's one of us guys

rachaelmhill  asked:

OK, I officially feel like I've been hit by a truck. More embarrassing Steve stories, if you please? I need distractions.

steve has really, really good night vision. 

i do too–i drank the same superjuice, just a little more watered down–but back during the war i didn’t really tell anyone about that. so since steve’s vision was best, he was always the point man on nighttime operations with the Howlies. this worked out pretty well–he could spot terrain problems and walk us around them, and he could see a nazi scout coming well before he saw us. 

but every once in a while, some particularly sneaky bastard would get the drop on him.

on one particular occasion, we were on our way back from an op, and crossing through a disputed area in the evening. we’d been warned that the nazis were trying to send spies through, so we were on the lookout. steve was on point. 

somehow, despite having the eyes of a goddam bald eagle, steve did not see this guy coming. 

the guy–a nazi spy–was hardly invisible. he had a big, bulky backpack, civilian clothes, and a Walther PPK.  he popped out of a shrub with his pistol and steve never saw him coming–but luckily steve’s got the instincts of a tiny angry human target who used to get jumped in dark alleys on a regular basis, and he bopped him with the shield before the nazi could fire. well, i say bopped–it was the sort of wild swing you take with a frypan when someone startles you in the kitchen. 

the spy flew a good three feet through the air and landed on his side–

and exploded into a flock of pigeons. 

after the fact, we realized that the spy’s backpack was actually a wooden cage containing half a dozen homing pigeons, intended to carry back messages from allied territory. when he fell, it split apart, releasing a bunch of terrified birds to fly back, empty handed (empty winged?), to a nazi base. but at the time, it was like a magic trick–one moment there was a nazi spy, the next, a flock of birds! 

the look of shock and surprise on steve’s face was incredible. you could see on his face a split second where he asked himself can i punch people so hard they turn into birds now? did i grow a new superpower? what the hell was in that serum?

he realized the truth moments later, but i could see it–the brief seconds where flashes of a pigeon empire flew through his head.

Tony and Peter sharing the same sentiment on why they do what they do, they both blame themselves for not doing enough, and feel the responsibility to do more and better, to protect the people and the world they love and care about

Yet another thing Daesung is afraid of: pigeons.

Guys are too into Loki and he keeps using it…

had an urge to draw my old DnD wizard who I may have mentioned was the absolute worst and whose magic was effectively just cartoon logic

there was also the running joke that, as in cartoons, his eyes were 100% visible in complete darkness just like these big ole googly googlers in a pitch black cave or whatever as well as having night vision, so whenever we ended up in a dark place my party’s fighter always yelled “tiiiiime to follow the bouncing eyes, guys!”

“what?”

I like the idea of ???% signing even more than originally planned, i think i’m going to do more!

if there’s anyone who denies that Donald Trump’s attacks on journalism are a major issue, here’s something for you: not only is the Libyan government denying the authenticity on the CNN reports on slavery in their country ( and thus allowing themselves to not do anything about the fact that they are selling human beings ), but Myanmar is now calling the verified, accurate reports of the Royhingan Muslim genocide “fake news”, saying that there is “no such thing as Royhinga”. 

Donald Trump’s attempts to delegitimize the American press are having real world repercussions, and people who are suffering are bearing the brunt of those repercussions. So yeah, Donald Trump’s feud with journalists is a big issue, and yeah, you should stand up for the rights of a free press.

Dad was such a drag
Every day he’d eat the same kind of food..
dress the same
sit in front of the same kind of games..
Yeah, he was just that kind of guy
But then one day he goes and kills us all!
He couldn’t even be original about the way he did it.
I’m not complaining…I was dying of boredom anyway
But guess what? I will be coming back, and
I’m bringing my new toys with me…

I’M HOWLING.

THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE CORE OF EVERYTHING I’VE BEEN PINNING ON FAI FOR WHO KNOWS HOW LONG AND IT’S FINALLY REAL AND TRUE AND HERE.

KUROGANE IS GOING FOR THE THROAT.

I love Fai’s shadow stretching so high behind him because the implication here is that he’s the shadow. The smiling Fai is the person he puts on display for the world so he can hide behind it in the collected darkness, a shade that no-one ever looks at, and this is Kurogane making all of my dreams come true and finally turning the mirror back in on itself.

AND THEN HE USES THE KIDS AS EVIDENCE, IN THE SAME WAY THAT FAI HIMSELF NOTED TO HIS DISMAY BACK IN OUTO. HE CARES FOR THIS FAMILY MORE THAN HE EVER PLANNED TO, MORE THAN HE EVER WANTED TO, And Kurogane saying this to him is the ultimate sign that Fai has failed his goal in every single way, because it means he knows it too, and that he knows it all. 

AND NOW MY WHOLE HEART IS SCREAMING BECAUSE FAI SEIZES KUROGANE’S ACCUSATION AND TURNS IT INTO AN EXCUSE.

He says “I said it, didn’t I? I wasn’t going to die.” That was in Koryo, too. Fai’s pretending that the magic was purely in self-interest – which, on the first level, is the sign that he’s lost the battle on the “I don’t use magic” front, but making a decent attempt at the “I don’t actually care for anyone” claim.

But Kurogane JUST

SLAMS THE TRUTH DOWN.

HE THROWS IN THE FINAL ACCUSATION. FAI CARES.  

AND HE DOES. THERE EVIDENCE IS EVERYWHERE AND THERE’S NO WAY TO PRETEND IT’S ANYTHING ELSE. He could have resisted the urge to use magic. He could have just let them all be captured and see what happened. But Kurogane points out exactly why he didn’t; because they might not all have survived.  

It’s not even about them as a collective unit. They might have gotten out of it eventually but what if Sakura died in the process. What if Syaoran died in the process. Or Kurogane. 

Fai was at the point where he was no longer willing to risk any of those outcomes, not even a little bit. So without any prodding from anyone at all HE HIMSELF CHOSE TO USE HIS MAGIC AS AN ACCEPTABLE PRICE FOR ALL OF THEIR CONTINUED SAFETY.

IRREVOCABLY: HE LOVES THEM. 

KUROGANE’S WON.

FAI’S LOST.

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE ON THE TABLE AND IT’S CRUSHED HIS ENTIRE PERSONA AND TORN IT TO PIECES.

AND THEN FAI SPEAKS, BUT HESITANTLY.

WHICH IS A FIRST.

IT’S ACTUAL HONESTY DROPPING FROM HIS TONGUE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME, SO UNFAMILIAR TO HIM NOW THAT HE DOESN’T EVEN KNOW HOW TO DO IT.

AND THERE IT IS.

It was like pulling teeth to get it out of him but HE DID IT.

KUROGANE GOT THE TRUTH OF FAI’S PERSONALITY OUT OF HIM.

This is honestly one of my favourite things to ever happen in this entire manga.
