fromobx  asked:

I'm really a little hurt and offended that you got a tattoo. So many people including myself have bought things (the t-shirt, teas) on your behalf for medical bills. I feel like you really shouldn't be asking for money or have a donate button on your page. I've given you money because I thought you were in a desperate situation, but everything you post (new clothes, new hair, new tattoo, fancy food) show you are spending money on luxury items. Not sure what else to say….

I know, and I’ve considered this when posting about making purchases. Trust me when I say that I’ve been budgeting my money carefully. I’ve been on the phone with the hospital and my CPA a lot to make sure I’m alright. Also keep in mind it’s Christmas right now. A lot of friends and relatives are being incredible and helping to treat me to nice things since I was basically in the hospital for my birthday this year. Christmas also means that people have also ordered a lot of stuff from Adagio and Redbubble from me, and so yes, I admit that I’ve used some of that unexpected income from sales to buy myself some stuff when I feel particularly depressed, since i have a bad habit of turning to retail therapy.

I hope… I dunno, I’m sorry if a lot of people feel like I’m squandering money? I WOULD have most definitely been fucked without everyones help. I wouldn’t have been able to pay rent or radiology bills or student loans. And now that I’m closer to recovered, I’m going to start the year working my ass off to produce more stuff for you guys. I hate hate HATE asking for handouts, because I KNOW afterwards all of my purchases will be scrutinized by some people, and you have every RIGHT to of course. I just…am going to feel incredibly guilty about getting nice things for Christmas now.

Edit: And you guys do know that my family flew me to my parents house in Texas so I wouldn’t spend the holidays alone, right? And my relatives are spoiling me like crazy now that I’m out of the hospital? It’s not like I’m the one financing crab leg dinners right now, trust me.
  • Peggy: You used me. You lied to me.
  • Howard: You hit me!
  • Peggy: You don't get to use my reaction to your lies as the reason for your lies.
  • Howard: Y-yeah, I do. I knew how much Steve meant to you, because I know how much he means to me. I was protecting you.
  • Peggy: Oh, don't pretend this is about me and my emotions. You were out to protect you.
  • Howard: Yeah, I didn't want to see this turmoil that you're in. Look at you.
  • Peggy: I trusted you, Howard!
  • Howard: Yeah, I know, and I was wrong. But you have to understand, a kid like me doesn't get to where I'm at by doing-
  • Peggy: What? Wanted for treason?
  • Howard: I grew up on the lower east side. My father sold fruit. My mother sewed shirtwaists for a factory. Let me tell you, you don't get to climb the American ladder without picking up some bad habits on the way. There's a ceiling for certain types of people based on how much money your parents have, your social class, your religion, your sex. And the only way to break through that ceiling sometimes is to lie, so that's my natural instinct... to lie.
  • Howard: I shouldn't have lied to you. For that, trust me, I am truly sorry.
  • Peggy: Why did you have Steve's blood in the first place?
  • Howard: I was one of the lead scientists on Project Rebirth. 11 vials went to the government, 1 vial went to me. Does the SSR know they have the vial?
  • Peggy: Why shouldn't they have it?
  • Howard: The government's almost through their supply. If they know they have mine, they'll never give it back, even if you clear my name.
  • Peggy: That still doesn't mean that you deserve to have Steve's blood.
  • Howard: You know, I believe that sample SR-53, that blood, Captain America's blood, holds the key to vaccines, medications, possibly even a cure for the common cold.
  • Howard: Steve Rogers may not still be with us, but he can still save millions of people.
  • Peggy: And how many millions of dollars are you set to make?
  • Howard: What the hell do you think of me?
  • Peggy: I think you're a man out for his own gain no matter who you're charging. You are constantly finding holes to slither your way into in the hope of finding loose change, only to cry when you're bitten by another snake. You're a man who says, "I love you," whilst looking over a woman's shoulder into the mirror. Steve Rogers dedicated his mind, his body, his life to the SSR and to this country, not to your bank account. I made the same pledge, but I'm not as good as Steve was. I forgot my pledge running around for you like a corporate spy. So thank you, Howard, for reminding me who Steve was and what I aspire to be. For all I know, you did steal your inventions.
