I love thinking about tony and his relationship with his bots. Like I always imagine they know he is their creator (dad) and see him as their #1 person. And they do learn and habe at least a basic understanding of human relationships and feelings. And they see rhodey and pepper as I dunno aunt/uncle? Do you think they would consider Peter to be more in line with them or rhodey/pepper? How do they feel about vision? Bruce? The others? Did their opinions change after CW? Is the change obvious?

Somewhere, deep within Dum-E’s and U’s programming, a small file has been created by the program itself. It is regularly updated and regarded of highest importance to their general functionality, their ability to asses situations and subsequent behaviour. It has been re-written, as to be more easily understandable to people like me who can’t code to save their lives, by the ever so helpful JARVIS, and essentially amounts to this:

// Tony Stark
{ subject identification = first;
  added subject identification = creator + commander + father}
{ subject priority = first }
{ objective in relation to first = obey orders;
  added objective in relation to first = protect first’s life + improve quality of        first’s life + ensure first’s health + encourage positive emotional reactions by  first }

// Rhodey Rhodes 
{ subject identification = second;
  added subject identification = second in command + friend + uncle}
{ subject priority = second } 
{ objective in relation to second = obey orders if orders are not in conflict with    objective in relation to first; 
 added objective in relation to second = determine degree of threat towards first  + help second improve quality of first’s  life + help second ensure first’s health  + help second encourage positive  emotional reactions by first } 

// Pepper Potts 
{ subject identification = second_02;
  added subject identification =  business associate + friend + aunt}
{ subject priority = second } 
{ objective in relation to second_02 = obey orders if orders are not in conflict      with objective in relation to first and if orders are not in conflict with objective in  relation to second; 
 added objective in relation to second_02 = determine degree of threat towards  first + help second_02 improve quality of  first’s life + help second_02 ensure  first’s health + help second_02 encourage    positive emotional reactions by  first }

// Peter Parker
{ subject identification = second_03;
 added subject identification =  business associate + employee + intern + inconclusive}
{ subject priority = undetermined }
{ objective in relation to second_03 = obey orders if orders are not in conflict      with objective in relation to first and if orders are not in conflict with objective in  relation to second and if orders are not in conflict with objective in relation to  second_02;
 added objective in relation to second_03 = determine degree of threat towards  first }
{ observation = second_03 engages with self; 
  added observation = more information on activity “catch” needed + more      information on social custom “greeting” needed + more information on social custom “small talk” needed }

In short Dum-E and U are very confused by the way Peter interacts with them (he treats them like Tony treats them, which is a first). They haven’t yet made up their minds. I also suspect Pepper is about to be demoted to fourth_03 (behind Bruce and Vision, but before Natasha, Steve, Clint and Wanda) because causing Tony to show expressions of negative emotions is a sure way to get on their shit list. Which is better than Team Cap because they have been put straight onto the Black List.

Let’s just say it’s a good thing none of them have run into the bots yet…

anonymous asked:

oh god are you one of those people who reads romeo and juliet as a romance rather than a tragedy

I thought I was gonna go to bed early tonight but I guess not

hey friend you just unleashed my nerdy wrath buckle up

short answer: no, I know r&j is a tragedy and I read it as such. Shakespeare didn’t write “romances”, at least not in the sense you mean (some people call his later stuff that’s harder to put into a genre ‘romances’, such as the winter’s tale and the tempest)

so no I’m not a moron thanks

here’s the long answer:

I presume you’re “one of those people” who likes to count themselves as the Specialest Snowflake In All The Land because they don’t buy into the fake cheesy idea of //romance// that everyone else so blindly believes

maybe you like to talk about how romeo and juliet were “just horny teenagers”, how they knew each other for three days, how romeo so loved rosaline thirty seconds before spotting juliet, so clearly he’s fickle and silly. they weren’t actually in love, they were just teenage idiots.
because only stupid girls buy that stuff.
you’re more mature than that.
am I right?

well, here’s the thing, sunshine- you aren’t special. I hear this same damn argument right down to the last word every time I mention my love of this play and it ENRAGES me every time because 99% of the time this is coming from /other teenagers/. other young people talking about how this isn’t a story to be taken SERIOUSLY. it’s silly and frivolous and unrealistic. they don’t realize that this play is dedicated to them.

and it’s criticizing people just like you.

while I do believe that these two young people were soul mates (I’ll get to that later), I don’t really think this is a story about love. it’s a story about /passion/- how love and hate are only a hair’s breadth apart and their overwhelming capacity for healing or for destroying. the emotion that drives mercutio to defend romeo from tybalt. what drives mercutio to be killed at his hand. what pushes formerly docile, dreamy romeo to slay his cousin in law: it all begins to seem like the same continuous passion, enflaming the same group of people on the hottest day of the year.

as a result, love isn’t a pretty thing in this play. it’s linked inextricably to death, to murder, to chaos. love is presented as the most dangerous force in the universe. it leaves five bodies in its wake, and then at the end (people forget this) it’s what finally brings the ancient feud to an end.
it’s not silly. it’s not frivolous. o brawling love, o loving hate.

and who are the conductors of this unstoppable force? who sets verona burning and then rebuilds it better in under a week?


kids.


people with a shitty understanding of this play who love to dismiss it and downplay it like to call it a “cautionary tale”- why you shouldn’t think with your dick, why you should grow up and not be so rash, be sensible.

I agree with part of this. it is a cautionary tale. but it’s directed at YOU.

you, who devalue youth. you, who underestimate teenagers and what they’re capable of, who wave off their every thought or feeling with “just a kid”. who think that love is a pretty little silly thing and that no one under the age of 25 is capable of really experiencing it. that the kids don’t MATTER.

capulet thought it- he dismissed tybalt’s rage during the party as dumb kids throwing a hissy fit. he wrote juliet off as a child who should be seen and not heard, shuffled from her father to her husband, guided by the wisdom of those older and wiser than her.

in the world presented in the play, age has NOTHING to do with wisdom. the adults range from careless (montague) to helpless (lady capulet) to blithering (the nurse). the wisest character, the most eloquent and intelligent one with the most beautiful poetry, is fourteen year old juliet.
(go back and read it. whose speeches are the most beautiful, sophisticated, complex? Juliet’s.)

okay, fine, you say. but they didn’t love each other, they just saw each other and got hot and bothered and wanted to jump the other’s bones! anyway, what about rosaline?!

I’ll address rosaline first:

shakespeare likes making fun of the poets of old (take for instance his “my mistress’ eyes” sonnet, a deliberate parody of the Petrarchan model of frilly love poetry). heres another example in romeo. when we first meet romeo he’s mooning over a girl in the frilliest, stalest, most formulaic verse imaginable. we get the feeling he’s enjoying himself, basking in his misery.

notice, though, that we never see rosaline on stage. she represents romeo’s vague infatuation with the //idea// of love, the pretty image he made up in his head from reading old poems. this not only creates an incredible arc in his character, but makes his love for juliet obviously the real deal by comparison. he meets juliet and his world goes into free fall; he’s rash and violent and impulsive, and the verse that was so stale and ingenuine before shifts into some of the most famous passionate poetry in the english language.
in his first scene, he asks “is love a tender thing?” he falls in love with juliet- REAL love, not the kind in poems- and comes to answer his own question: no. no it fucking isn’t.


but, you say. but they CANT have loved each other! you don’t fall in love just by LOOKING at someone!

yeah, I know you don’t.

but here’s the thing. if you aren’t willing to suspend some modicum of disbelief, you won’t get anything from shakespeare. period.

we’re already assuming that these people just happen to walk around speaking in blank verse and rhyming couplet. the plot of hamlet relies on the existence of a ghost, a midsummer night’s dream on fairies, macbeth on witches, the tempest on magic, measure for measure on the friggin /bed trick/- is it SUCH A HORRIBLE STRETCH FOR YOUR CYNICAL POSTMODERN MIND TO MAKE that characters can identify their soulmates with a look? have we reached that level of lazy cynicism as a society that magical love flowers and vengeful ghosts are believable, where a woman can turn into a boy by shoving a hat over her hair and statues spring to life as deceased loved ones, but love at first sight (a very very common Elizabethan plot device; it’s /everywhere/ in shakespeare) is just too much of a stretch?

no one rolls their eyes at hamlet because “ghosts aren’t real. are you one of those people who believe in ghosts?” no- they take it for the plot device that it is in order to get to the message of the play as a whole, and the truths of the human conditions it reveals, with the help of some purely theatrical elements.

but kids in love. that’s far too silly.


it’s really fucking sad.


and questions like yours, anon? those make me really, really fucking sad.

anonymous asked:

What personality traits/overall type of person do you think would be best suited for Jason Todd romantically? (Sorry if this comes off as weird— this is from a fanfic writer who's characters have only seemed to clash with Jason lol.)

Thanks for the ask! ✨ I hope this will help, if not just send me another message and I’ll try to come up with some more ideas.

Okay, so here’s some personality traits implicated how they would probably impact Jason, or vice versa. First note that I personally think Jason would be well suited with a wide range of personalities. But mostly I think he would be attracted to an independent strong woman who doesn’t need a man, but at the same time he wants to be needed and wants to take care of his significant other.

That ‘someone special’ would probably be an accomplish women whether that be because of her family’s wealth, her own hard work of climbing the ladder of wealth, or because she’s an accomplished warrior. Despite all that, she has a knack for getting into trouble, possibly surpassing even Jason himself.

Once she does fall in love she becomes pathetically obvious, despite all her efforts to not fall in love with him. She’s also not necessarily a dreamer but she admires that Jason is a grounded person. Because it balances her out when she needs it.

She might even have a little bit of a dark past which is a common ground her and Jason build their relationship on once he discovers it–and he will. She’s also smart, determined, competitive, and kind, but probably scares children more than Jason does.

They both know they need each other in ways no one else could understand. But that doesn’t mean there is no arguments and struggles in their relationship. Sometimes from the onlooker, it seems like they fight like cats and dogs.

Jason wants someone who can be equally as independent as he is, otherwise he feels a sense of guilt—like he’s failing being a good partner that his beloved deserves. He just doesn’t know how to stop working and set aside sometime for them to go on a date and spend that crucial quality time that all couples need.

Jason’s s/o is also confident and outspoken with a rebellious streak. She can be really funny but usually she’s not trying to be, and he always appreciates when someone can make him laugh because he tends to be very melancholy at times, and it’s nice to have a companion who can pull you out of that mood.

But omygosh, Jason is such a boy when it comes to showing the woman he loves that he likes her more than anyone else: He’s always searching for an opening to tease her, and that flirtatious teasing carries on throughout their relationship. She tries, but usually fails, at pretending to hate his teasing, but as I stated earlier, she’s really obvious when it comes to love. She’s also vengeful af, and surprises him sometimes when she sneakily repays his prank.

Her guilty pleasure is when Jason gets jealous when another guy starts giving her their attention.

She often finds herself being the only one who can handle Jason most days, and having to hold him back from losing his hot temper and assaulting someone who is particularly being annoying or evil (especially if they’re males). And that gives her a sense of pride knowing that she is the only one who can talk him out of things he’s really set on doing.

They also often find themselves disagreeing when it comes to running their lives (especially if they are both crime fighters), their methods often clash and unfortunately they are both equally stubborn. So they have to agree to disagree and fix the collateral damage later. He does his own thing by his own reckless rules and she gets frustrated because she suspects him of having a death wish. But at the same time she feels a contradiction because she admires his strong will, ingeniously methods of attack, and his all-around self-sufficiency.

He knows when she lies to him and she hates it so much because she can’t get away with anything.

Now, if she’s a girly girl, she loves being rescued by him. But if she’s a tomboy, she tries to pretend she hates being rescued by him. (because she’s got some pride issues she needs to work on, but deep down inside she actually cherishes it and gives him a kiss at the closest safe moment).

She’s very affectionate with him because they are both somewhat starved for affection. She’s also very protective of him but usually behind his back because she knows he likes to pretend he’s made of cold steel.

He sometimes goes to elaborate lengths to do something really romantic for her, and she probably feels uncomfortable when he’s so sweet and generous because she has her own insecurities of not feeling deserving of it. But at the same time she feels so loved every time he’s trying to be romantic, and she wants to deserve him. If only she knew he felt the same way.


Sorry this was so late, anon! I hope you find it useful! :3

I’ve always liked Marauders over Juggernauts, at least at lower levels, but I’ve discovered at level 70, the Juggernaut appeals to me in the same elemental ways that a Scoundrel getting in close and just plain brawling appeals to me. It isn’t particularly graceful, but it’s powerful and hard-hitting. I am particularly in love with Vengeful Slam. In some battles with other Force users, I’ve felt like I’m seeing/hearing a battle of titans, and I love it. I love playing women who exude that sort of physical power.

fear the fever by digital daggers is a pretty strong contender as well

OH YES! It’s a great song - especially for Reylo =) I mean…

It wants to kill you
It wants to tear you apart
It wants to thrill you
This vengeful love that I’ve got
Wants to consume you

In fact, one of the first big reylo videos featured it:

and it was GLORIOUS

and then like a week later another one came out:

anyone telling you reylo is new, or was only loved by a small minority early on is lying to you.

While I was on hiatus I read Star Wars fanfictions every day on my way to work and one of them made a lasting impression on me. 

It’s named “In a lonely place” by flamethrower / @deadcatwithaflamethrower

The story about Obi-Wan becoming Darth Venge, taking a heavy burden on his shoulders made my heart ache for him.
I cried so many times I lost count and after I finished this masterpiece I couldn’t help it but draw how I imagine him as Venge.
