One Thing (Among Many) That I Really Appreciated About Wonder Woman

I was ready to go into Wonder Woman, fully expecting Steve Trevor’s story Arc to be “I’m sexist, and by the end of the film Diana will prove me wrong, but until then I’ll be a smarmy jerk boy.”  I was waiting for a “Woman can’t do X” joke or Steve being incredulous at her abilities and having it be played for laughs.  I was waiting for it, to clench my teeth and get through it.

BUT WHO BOY HOWDY WAS I WRONG AND I AM SO GLAD

becuase from the moment Steve “Ride or Die” Trevor washes up on Amazon Island of Buff Chicks he is 100% there for Diana.  He treats her as an equal, is supportive of her power, follows her into battle, and is only critical of her when he’s concerned for her safety, and even then does what he can to help her push forward anyway.  I wasn’t expecting to leave the theater having a lot of feelings about Steve Trevor but HOOOOO DOGGY. 

Like Steve is such a breath of fresh air.  After sitting through film after film of of stubborn, borish, snarky, sarcastic men that we’re supposed to revere as heroes, I’m so so thankful that we get Steve Trevor, who is a warrior who believes in the best of people, who willingly embraces vulnerability and the Lasso of Truth, who believes in self-sacrifice and that human beings are inherently good, who above all believes in, supports, relies on, follows, and loves Wonder Woman. 

ITS LIKE A WOMAN DIRECTED THIS MOVIE OR SOMETHING, FINALLY DEPICTING A HEROIC MAN OF WOMAN’S DESIRES, AS OPPOSED TO A HEROIC MAN OF WHAT MEN THINK IS WOMEN’S DESIRES

“Dean…. Dean.”  A gentle voice pierces the dream-scape, pulling Dean back to consciousness.  There’s a hand on his back, guiding him, pulling him in.  There’s a body pressed along his side. It’s warm and comforting, and despite being pulled from his precious sleep, he smiles.  

“I don’t wanna be awake,” he murmurs, and there’s lips against his shoulder.  “I don’t wanna move.”

“Things to do, people to save.”  Cas’s voice is quiet and low.  There’s a smile in his voice, though Dean can’t see him.  Dean pulls Cas’s arm around him and tugs him closer, chest flush against back.  

“Not now.  Not yet.”

“Dean,” Cas says, a kiss pressed to Dean’s hair.

“It’s not time to go yet, Cas.  I can’t.  You’re here.  I’m not ready.”

Cas’s face is buried against Dean’s neck, and Dean breaths in deep.  “I’m always here with you, Dean.  Even when you can’t see me.  I’m here…”

“Come back to me.”  Dean’s words echo in the empty room as he opens his eyes.  The warmth he felt from Cas is gone, replaced by cold pillows and a mess of sheets.  But no Cas.  Never Cas.  The air is musty and heavy with the scent of bacon.  Sam’s trying to lure him from his room, as he does often these days.  

He sits up, grudgingly, and scrubs a hand through his hair.  He steels himself for the day ahead – another day without Cas.  Another day of going through the motions.  Pressing his fingers to his lips, he leans back and presses those fingers to the folded trench coat beneath his pillow.  “I mean it, Cas,” he murmurs.  “Come back to me.”  

As has every day since, he allows himself a moment before he’s up and off, the patented Dean Winchester mask firmly in place.  Later tonight, he’ll down a bottle of whiskey, hold the trench coat against his chest and cry himself to sleep.  But for now, today, he’s Dean Winchester, the legendary hunter.  He pushes forward, like Cas would want.  He tries to be the man Cas always believed him to be.  A good, heroic, strong man.  If nothing else, he can be that for Cas.  If nothing else, he can do what it takes to earn the love Cas so willingly gave him.  

I’m really loving the theme lately with big budget film and TV projects in the ‘nerds and nostalgia’ genre having White Male Entitlement as the villain

like

Mad Max asked who killed the world

their answer was 'toxic masculinity’

Jessica Jones answered with 'rape culture’

and Star Wars threw in 'entitled, privileged white dudes with nostalgiaboners for eras of extreme oppression for everyone else’

could we ask for a more accurate unholy trinity, or a better group to be putting this shit on blast??

Doctor’s Little Helper.

[Whats happening: In an attempt to creatively deliver the toy to Dr. Schneeplestein, Shawn Flynn thought it’d be clever to stuff the toy in his shirt and fake faint. As the Doc panicked, he began performing CPR, but then discovered a strange lump and found the doll. He was not amused.]

He did keep the doll, however. He decided it brought a bit more color to his mundane desk.

i squeezed my gummy worm package tight wishing i was laying in bed watching tv. every time i heard the slightest noise i would flinch, walking past alleys i would pick up my pass in fear of someone jumping out at me.

i was almost home. almost. i was making my way past one of the many alleys when i heard voices. they were speaking to eachother, not loud but not quietly either. i pulled up my hood and tried to hide behind it hoping to go unnoticed. i thought i was successful.

Promises - Alfie Solomons

Hey, could you please do an imagine where you were a nurse during the war and became really close with Alfie, like he got injured and you had to take care of him. Once the war was all over, he tracks you down because he cannot stop thinking about you. Love your blog and writing!! :)

Promises - Alfie Solomons

His return to Camden Town after the war had not been easy. Settling back into the life that he’d had before the war proved difficult. His bakery was still intact and his workers still loyal but they had few clients and the fear that Alfie instilled before seemed to have disappeared around the same time he did four years ago. But he worked tirelessly to rebuild what was lost and to gain even more respect than when he left. All that time spent on the bakery kept Alfie distracted from the only good thing he had brought with him from France. The memory of a young woman, an English nurse in the hospital in Paris, plagued him as equally as his memories of the front lines did. You came and went in his sleep, a face and a name he seemed unable to put behind him.

Parent day

I’m crap at titles. This is less Bucky based but I have an idea for a series with Bucky coming soon. Anyway this is a tony x daughter reader fic because I suddenly had inspiration. sorry if it’s really crap.

This was the fifth presentation on the avengers you had seen that hour. As a class you each had to prepare a small presentation on someone who inspires you. You thought doing your father would be a rather original idea, but not when your father was Tony Stark. The longer it took for your name to be called the more nervous you got. You never really said who your father was since no one seemed to question it. He never wanted you to grow up with your face in the media; he wanted you to have a normal life if that was what you wanted as well. You wanted friends and to choose your life but it never was how you dreamed but you just had to deal with it. He tried the best he could and you knew that, you loved him even if sometimes he was late to collect you or forgot certain school plays. He was you father never the less.

Your thoughts were broken when your teacher called you name out and you gathered your note cards and walked to the front. “Um… My inspiration is my father.” As soon as the word left your mouth it was as if everyone just stopped listening. You looked at your teacher and even she looked bored so you decided now was the time to throw the name out there. “Tony stark is always seen as just Iron man, but I get to see him as just Dad.” Everyone suddenly sat up with eyes wide and mouths open as one of the snobby girls raised their hands. “And how do you expect us to believe that such a heroic and rich man like Tony stark is really your father? You probably don’t even know a thing about him, you’re just coping everyone else.” She said causing the whole class to laugh, you couldn’t even form the words to defend yourself, you were so embarrassed. “And let me guess you totally know all of the avengers as well.” She said in a mocking tone and you felt a tear roll down your cheek as your fists clenched. You let your cards fall to the floor and you stormed out of the classroom as the laughter started up again.

You ran out of the school and ran to bus stop and getting on the first one home. Tears were now freely flowing down your face as you sat on the empty bus until it pulled up outside your house. You thanked the driver and walked up to the big double gate, entering in the code and walking in. You saw that there was a car on the driveway so you knew your dad probably had either a guest or Steve round. Steve was like a second dad to you, he was there when Tony couldn’t, often picking you up from school if he had meetings. It was hard for him not being able to be there for you and you knew the toll it had on him so you always shrugged it off. When you walked in you heard your dad talking about a mission so you knew it was Steve who was home. You walked quickly through the house, trying to avoid a conversation but it didn’t quite work. “Hi sweetheart. Why are you home so early?” He said but you didn’t even turn around, know if you did he would see through your lie, “Um I didn’t feel well so they sent me home. I think I’m just going to go to bed for a bit.” You said not even waiting for a reply before you slammed your bedroom door shut.

“You should go check on her. I’ve got to go home anyway, Nat and Sam wanted me to go to the tower for game night. You know you’re both welcome.” Steve said picking up his keys and jacket, “I know I’m welcome, it’s my tower.” Tony joked opening the door. Once Steve had drove half way up the driveway he closed the door and walked to your room. “Honey?” He said knocking slightly on the door but when he heard you sniffling he just walked in. When he saw you crying at the edge of your bed he wrapped his arms around you giving you a tissue. “What happened? How did the presentation go?” and you tried to calm yourself before answering, “They were all laughing at me, saying that you weren’t really my dad and that I was making it up.” It broke his heart seeing you like this and it was times like this where he wished he could have been there more. “I’m sorry, I should be there more. Hey I just got an email about some parent day, why didn’t you tell me about that?” He said pulling away so he could look at you, “You said you had a meeting that day so I didn’t tell you.” You replied feeling guilty for not saying anything. “Hang on.” He said pulling out his phone and cancelling the meeting. “Wasn’t that important?” You whispered, “Not more important than my daughter. Now come on, it’s game night at the tower we should go.” You just nodded and hugged him before getting into some nicer clothes and heading off to the tower.

——————–

“Ah there she is. It’s been too long kid.” Sam said enveloping you in a hug before everyone else took turns to say hello. You all sat in the living room, Bucky and Steve were talking about a mission and you were sat between Thor and Clint fiddling with the handle of the hammer as everyone laughed and enjoyed a drink (Well except you. Too young.) “Hey Y/N didn’t you have the big presentation today?” Nat piped up and your smile fell, “Ah I didn’t really do it. But how can I after sitting through five presentations about you guys that are so incorrect it makes me want to scream.” They all laughed because they all knew how right you were, the media never truly showed who they were as people, leading everyone to believe they were someone completely different. “Maybe next time we should just turn up.” Thor joked but something in Tony changed, “That is a brilliant idea!” He almost jumped out of his skin and you knew whatever idea he was planning it wasn’t good. “No dad, please.” you laughed as he stood in the middle of the circle you had created with the sofas. “Y/N has some sort of parent day tomorrow-”, “Bring your parent to school day, so you can talk about your job or whatever.” You said cutting him off. “We should all go, and then those stupid kids in your class will believe that you weren’t lying.” He said falling back down into his chair at the end. Everyone thought it was a great idea except you.

“Wait wait wait, so you’re saying some girl in your class embarrassed you by saying that you weren’t really Tony’s daughter.” Clint laughed and you nodded. The avengers made it seem a lot more funny than it was. You started to see the humour in it, how stupid can people get, you literally have his last name. And by the end of the night they had already prepared to all drive you to school in the morning and walking you into class for this event. Tony added that you had to be late for dramatic effect.

———————

That morning all of the avengers turned up at the house super early, Nat and Wanda even helped you pick out a super cool outfit to wear. “You know we could just fly you to school.” They said but you just laughed heading down the stairs where Bruce and Tony were making pancakes for everyone. You sat at the large table and ate which never usually happened, you were usually rushing while your dad tinkered with a suit before you got in a car and the driver took you. Instead here you were, with all of the avengers eating breakfast before turning up late for school in front of everyone. They had all insisted on wearing their suits, except your dad since you couldn’t drive in his suit but he sure as hell brought it with him to give a good show. When you turned up you could see the rude girl, Tiffany, talking about what her parents did while they stood there in their expensive clothes, “His suit cost less than my tie.” Tony said obviously seeing what you were looking at as he pulled into the school. Everyone from the class suddenly rushed to the window and you knew they were looking at you as you climbed out of your father’s limo in the playground, all of the avengers following.

“Sorry we are late, I couldn’t decide whether to take the limo or the private jet.” Tony said as you all walked in totally interrupting Tiffany but neither of you cared as everyone sat back down in awe. “Mr stark it’s an honour.” Your teacher said and ushered Tiffany’s parents out of the way so you could stand at the front of the class. “Um. This is my dad but you all knew that.” You said, the whole sentence dripping with sarcasm as everyone just stared. “I’m sure you know all of us by name and what we do. But we would all like to share anyway.” Tony said with the same amount of sass and the whole class basically screamed when the teacher led the way out to the playground for more room. You stood next to Tiffany while the avengers did their thing and she stuttered out “How much did you pay for them to be here? Like you could afford it anyway.” You could tell she was losing the fight here so you just simply said, “I didn’t pay anything since he is my dad. Do you need a DNA test for you to finally accept that?” she was completely silent, opening and closing her mouth like a fish but no words coming out. After the presentation your father came over and kissed your forehead, “I’ll be picking you up later okay. Have a good day, I love you darling.” And everyone went home leaving your class to rush to asking questions as you just watched your father drive away, “I love you too dad.”
