Me: *gets close friend into Hamilton fandom*

Me: Oh my god, I’m so sorry.

Me: Okay, but seriously, do you want me to send you that masterlist of Jamilton fics or…?

au where Neil and Katelyn work at a coffee shop, the twins are frequent visitors but rarely do they ever go in together.

  • Andrew tends to go to the cafe around the time Neil has a shift and Aaron when Katelyn has shift (have they shifted their schedules to accommodate for a certain cute barista, no of course not, pfft)
  • Andrew likes to annoy Neil by telling him he made his drink wrong(tells him he wants a free drink next time he comes in). neil hates him and does give him a free drink only to have it be the sweetest concoction ever(bc who could like something so poisonously sweet) Spoiler alert: Andrew does. Cue his salute and “better luck next time” as he exits the cafe
  • next time andrew comes in neil makes him most bitter black coffee ever.
  • andrew is all like challenge accepted and looks neil straight in the eye as he pours nearly half the sugar container into his cup of coffee. raises the cup to him as if toasting to him, ‘cheers’ and walks out of the fucking cafe
  • Neil doesn’t realize he’s been giving andrew a free drink every time he comes. andrew however does.
  • katelyn flirts with aaron every time he comes in. their encounters are a mix of awkward chatter and flirtations. aaron has been trying to ask her for her number for some time now. katelyn has been getting up the courage to write her number on his cup
  • neil comes in to relieve katelyn of her shift and sees one of the twins just walk out of the shop and he tells her how much of an asshole he is and katelyn is like what?? you’re wrong. katelyn is like his name is aaron and he’s a sweetheart and neil is like his name is andrew and he’s a fucking ass
  • so in order to prove each other wrong they move their schedules around to have several shifts together.(this also confuses the twins because like what happened to their cute barista)
  • matt and dan work the register, both have a sneaking suspicion that they are twins but they don’t say anything because they think it’s hilarious.they also have a bet going on as to who will realize it first. matt bets on neil(of course). they are sure to put themselves on the same shift as neil and katelyn
  • aaron walks in while they are both working and neil watches as aaron completely ignores him in favor of katelyn. and he smiles and laughs and what the fuck. and katelyn gets the courage to put her phone number on the cup, feeling all triumphant over neil
  • neil is actually offended(which actually surprises neil because he should be glad he is ignoring him but he’s not, how dare this fucker not talk to him after all the shit he has put neil through) and is about to go off on him when andrew walks in.
  • aaron and andrew both look at each like what the fuck are you doing here
  • and katelyn and neil look at each other like, they’re fucking twins
  • dan and matt call it a draw
  • neil writes his number on andrew’s cup because why the fuck not

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.

the foxes in pastel » andrew and aaron minyard

the strangled noise aaron made was his best attempt at andrew’s name. it was barely intelligible but it was enough.

andrew, who’d barely acknowledged aaron’s existence in the entire time neil had known them, looked immediately to his brother. andrew snaked a hand out from under the sheet and curled his fingers in a demand. aaron clambered onto the bed and reached for andrew.

“andrew,” aaron said, desperate and frightened. he held onto andrew like he thought andrew would disappear if he let go.

and just like tons of other shit with all the others. 

And like have a dvd with mvs and stuff and it’s just a bunch of dumb videos they’ve filmed together and them just like hanging out and stuff 

….maybe I’m the only one who wants this lol

anonymous asked:

why do you like aaron gross

okay w o w this is such a loaded question I’m going to ignore the use of the word gross here unless you literally want to fight me. The short answer to that question is that I started loving Aaron the most when I realized literally no one else did, but there’s a lot more to it than that.

Let’s take a little journey together:

  • Aaron Minyard is the most underappreciated character in the whole of the TFC fandom
    • literally Jean, Jeremy, and Bee get more love than him and all of them just have the briefest scattering of scenes like???
    • the only person ya’ll talk about less is Seth, and he literally died after one book, whereas Aaron is a major player in all three
  • I feel like in general the fandom despises Aaron because Neil despises Aaron, which is natural and all because the book is in Neil’s POV so we’re literally trained to think the way he thinks, but I can’t stand that mentality tbh
  • Also, typically I’ve noticed a lot of people don’t dive in enough to understand that Aaron and Andrew are a lot more similar than everyone seems to think
    • you hear over and over again how Andrew would burn the world for Aaron, that Aaron’s well being is far more important than anyone else’s
    • but how often do we consider the fact that Aaron would burn the world for Andrew, too?
  • We spend a lot of time devoting ourselves to Neil, Andrew, and Kevin (and even Jean, for crying out loud) because they have these uniquely horrible pasts that they have to overcome through the series
    • Okay. Cool. Awesome. I love me so damn character development and redemption and revenge as much as the next reader
    • But are we forgetting Aaron’s past? Aaron’s present even? And how much all that has happened to Aaron and to Andrew has literally ruined Aaron’s life and how hard he’s had to work to come to terms with it?
  • let’s take a trip back in time, to a young Aaron living alone with Tilda

Keep reading

In high school, Andrew and Aaron are in the same class when they’re supposed to make family trees for an assignment to see how they ended up where they are today.

  • Andrew hates the assignment and doesn’t see why they have to do it
  • He gets into a fight with the teacher over it
  • The teacher doesn’t like either of the twins, but especially can’t stand Andrew
  • The feeling is mutual
  • The argument basically ends in a ‘do this or you don’t graduate’ threat that makes Andrew even angrier
  • But also there is no fucking way in hell Andrew is staying in high school without Aaron if Aaron graduates and he doesn’t
  • And as much as he would like to drop out, he can’t
  • Because he doesn’t want to be left behind
  • Andrew will not stop complaining about this goddamn family tree assignment
  • Aaron doesn’t necessarily like the project, but he doesn’t think it’s that difficult
  • And he doesn’t understand why Andrew keeps complaining when Aaron’s the one doing all the work and Andrew can just copy it after
  • Aaron does what he is supposed to for the assignment and asks Nicky and Luthor and Maria to get the information he needs
  • And then he makes his family tree all nice and colour coded
  • He offers it to Andrew for Andrew to copy so that he can still stand a chance of graduating
  • Aaron’s kind of afraid that Andrew is going to destroy his project because he’s so pissed about it
  • But when Aaron holds it out and offers it to him, Andrew won’t even look at it, let alone touch it
  • Aaron tells him to stop being an idiot and just copy the fucking assignment so he isn’t stuck in the same class again next year
  • Andrew says none of the people Aaron went and found information on are his family and he doesn’t want it
  • Aaron hands his assignment in and gets a good mark for his write-up and family tree that is complete as he could possibly make it
  • Aaron’s mark is better than he usually gets because he put more effort in, trying to get Andrew a decent mark so he doesn’t fail the course
  • Andrew hands in a piece of paper with his name, Aaron’s name, and Nicky’s name on it with Aaron marked as his brother and Nicky marked as his cousin and a page with half-assed information on them
  • The teacher fails him and insists that putting just a brother and cousin isn’t acceptable
  • Andrew says he doesn’t have any other family
  • The teacher argues that Aaron’s family tree has information about their family
  • Andrew is pissed and insists none of those people are his family and he either hasn’t met them or barely met them and wishes he hadn’t
  • The teacher insists he could still add his biological family and hand the family tree back in to get a passing mark
  • Andrew stares the teacher dead in the eyes, pulls out his lighter, and burns his family tree
  • Andrew fails his family tree assignment but manages to get a mark in the class that is just high enough to let him graduate
DCEU Dick Grayson

Here’s a list of actors that I would be 100% down if they were cast as Dick since Dick’s Titans TV show casting disappointed the hell out of me

1. Matthew Daddario

If you follow me you may know how I feel about this. He’s absolutely perfect. Just look at him?? He doesn’t have blue eyes but that can be fixed with contacts if needed. Honestly would cry if he was cast.

2. Richard Madden

Yes..Robb Stark… but LISTEN. This can work. I’m a firm believer. His name is Richard. It’s a sign.

3. Aaron Taylor Johnson

Or he could play a sick Jason Todd

4. Riz Ahmed

He’s so charming. Dick is 78% charm.

5. Joe Alwyn

Dye his hair. Done.

6. Ben Barnes

He’s maybe too old (ripe old age of 36), the second oldest on the list. But he looks the part and is a sweetheart.

7. Kit Harrington

I know I know… Second “King In The North!” on the list but Kit wouldn’t look bad at all in blue and black. I have doubts about his wit and charm, but he’s not just Jon Snow. Kit himself is a very likeable and happy man.

8. Matt Bomer

I’m just adding him because we must never forget how amazing he would be as Dick. Sadly he’s near 40, so this probably will never happen. Still. Never forget.

9. Fionn Whitehead

Fight me. Right now.

10. An unknown.

Surprise me. Seriously. As long as DCEU!Dick is charming, flirty, a dork and has dark hair I actually don’t care. Just get an actor who’s passionate and determined to do his own stunts (my boy Richard is an acrobat, do him justice). Anything less than an incredible ass would also be an injustice to the character, but if that’s what it takes for me to have a great Dick Grayson, then so be it.

Whoever it is: just give Dick the blue suit. Forget red ever existed.

tbh i’m still not over robert’s ‘husband back’ alarm and soft sleepy smile
