I still believe in man in spite of man. I believe in language even though it has been wounded, deformed, and perverted by the enemies of mankind. And I continue to cling to words because it is up to us to transform them into instruments of comprehension rather than contempt. It is up to us to choose whether we wish to use them to curse or to heal, to wound or to console.

You know how in some shows there’s the one kid who acts really immature for comedic effect and says goofy things, and in the first season you love them for it because, hey, they’re a kid and this is pretty realistic—and then they do it in the second season, and the third, and they become that one character that never really grows up in any way and after a while it’s just not funny, it just makes you cringe? 

Yeah, I really hope they don’t do that with Dustin.

So today turned out to be a really big day guys, tumblr staff reblogged my TDOV comic????? That’s so cool???? You guys are so cool???? Everything is sO COOL?????

I’ve really loved seeing all of your faces today - you’re all such beautiful people, thank you so much for welcoming me into such a beautiful community, you guys mean the world to me ❤️This is my first ever out TDOV, and I couldn’t have asked for a better one ❤️ So here’s my face, internet. I’m not big about sharing my own pre-trans self at the moment, so have some real-me ones instead😘. 

(Also that’s my little brother Charlie in the last one, he’s cool.)

Y'all going on about how Lonnie’s the worst father ever (which, granted, he is), but you never mention Ted except to joke about how he fucks chickens??? Like, that man is legitimately terrible?! He has an amazing family and a stable life and doesn’t appreciate any of it, just sits and sleeps and watches TV. He doesn’t help Karen parent, he barely expresses any concern when THE FUCKING GOVERNMENT PEOPLE show up at his front door and tell him his son is in danger (legit hes just like “is she russian?!” and “karen shoosh trust the government” like what kinda?!?!?!). and when mike is sitting in a fucking ambulance surrounded by police he doesn’t even look at him, just lets Karen do the comforting once more (side note: reason #456788 why Karen is the best mom she might as well be a single parent as far as emotionally supporting her kids goes and she does a damn fine job but still) like literally he just chats with the paramedic, prolly asking about discount chickens at the supermarket what a lil FUCK 

i have the sudden, overwhelming desire to write a body swap fic where Graves and Newt are on the receiving end of a miscast spell and have to suffer the admittedly hilarious consequences

Captain America (Steve Rogers), Avengers, Young Avengers and Secret Warriors assemble to take down Iron Patriot (Norman Osborn). 

Now for a close-up at the three star-spangled themed superheroes at the second pic. There’s Patriot (Elijah Bradley), Captain America (Steve Rogers) and Captain America (Bucky Barnes, also nicknamed as “Bucky Cap” or “Captain Bucky”).
