movie timeline

10

Me, being the Scooby-Doo fanatic I am, decided to make a complete timeline of all the Scooby-Doo content that include the animated series, animated movies, live action films, and possibly the worst Scooby rendition which was the puppet movie all in chronological order. I wanted to show how the gang and the animation style had changed throughout the years, so enjoy!

Renamed MCU Movies
  • Iron Man: Robert Downey Jr. now has a goatee and it sort of works
  • The Incredible Hulk: remember that 2003 Hulk film with Jennifer Connelly? this isn't it
  • Iron Man 2: He's Back and Very Tired of This Shit
  • Thor: Tell your kid he's adopted and then hibernate to avoid your problems
  • Captain America The First Avenger: arguably, could one insert their dick....into the tesseract? asking for a friend
  • The Avengers: remember loki? ha that wild son of a gun sure loved trying to kill his adopted father. what's he been up to?
  • Iron Man 3: Tony Stark Collects Science Kids
  • Thor The Dark World: Why do Asgardians have such weird fucking names? Just have a normal name.
  • Captain America The Winter Soldier: Just give Natasha Romanoff her own movie already
  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Put This Film in the Library of Congress
  • Avengers Age of Ultron: Clint Barton has a line in the script!
  • Ant-Man: Paul Rudd is like the hot dad of your friend and it's really obvious but you don't want to say anything about it in case that friend stops inviting you to their house so you sit there at dinner and try not to stare at their hot dad but eventually you just have to say something and then you stop talking to that friend a month later for totally unrelated causes
  • Captain America Civil War: Bucky Barnes is not straight part 2
  • Doctor Strange: you could have literally cast anybody else in this role and you chose Bendydick Crackrock. other than that, great film
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2: currently still sobbing over this
  • Spiderman Homecoming: Tony Stark Continues To Collect Science Kids

MCU: Chronological Watch Order

This is so important.

UPDATED: Agent Carter Season 1 One Shot confusion pic was changed..  Also, Jessica Jones comes right after Daredevil. 

i have been thinking a lot about superheroes, and how the millennium children were born without one. we live in the aging heroes of our parents and grandparents, the familiar stories with problems from eras before our own; where victory comes as a result of hard work and dedication, where goodness and truth are a promised ending.

our heroes got old. our heroes had life breathed into them again only for us to start seeing the problems: it was fantasy, there was nothing to believe in. our heroes haven’t been reborn, only a few new ones have been made. we grew up reading about worlds where justice meant something only to wake up where justice is unequal, where rich means powerful and rich means getting away with it and rich means the hero comes to dinner with you instead of spending it in brooklyn on the subway. 

we watched other people get married in princess costumes in parades we’d not be able to afford. our heroes wouldn’t cater to us, we didn’t have the money to invite sleeping beauty to our baby shower. we bought movies where captain america punches nazis only to be told that we shouldn’t fight nazis. batman strings up criminals but a boy found guilty of violent assault gets off with a walk. robin hood refuses to show up, we’re forced to crowdfund cancer survivors as the wealthy get tax cuts. we love superheros, watch all of the x-men movies even though the timeline makes no sense anymore - but they’re not born from our struggles. they’re not coming from our wars.

why are there so few heroes anymore.

For the first time ever, here to accompany the 2016 AO3 Ship Stats list, this list shows the 100 most popular pairing tags on Archive Of Our Own since this time last year.

This list was created by comparison of current number of fics with data gathered for the 2015 AO3 Ship Stats. Values are only approximate, but this list gives some idea of the most popular pairings in the last 13 months (from July 2015 to August 2016).

There are 63 M/M pairings on the list, 19 F/M, 7 F/F, 5 Gen and 6 Other. (Please note that on AO3, ‘Name & Name’ indicates platonic relationships (Gen), while ‘Name/Name’ is used for romantic pairings.) Of the 200 names on the list, 34 are women and 7 are characters of ambiguous gender. 49 are POC, and 15 are racially ambiguous.

For more information about the AO3 Ship Stats project, please check out this year’s post, and the accompanying FAQs. A text-only version of this data is beneath the cut.

ETA: Fixed Loki/Reader type.

Set after the events of the movie - considering the timeline homosexuality would still have been criminal. Slivko being the wholesome American soldier that he is, is repulsed by this side of himself. Because it’s bad enough as a civilian but in the army is another thing.

Conrad has come to terms with who he is and will make do so when he sees how Slivko is around him and they come to a compromise. Slivko knocks in to his cabin as they’re making there return journey, all wringing hands and darting glances. Conrad reaches towards him and pulls the headband down. He tells him that he doesnt have to see, he can just feel it and see how it goes from there.

You know, as much as I am all over fic and fanart about bb!Peter and Yondu, I was thinking about how Peter is canonically 34 according to the movie’s timeline, which means he was actually with the Ravagers for more years as an adult than he was as a kid.

And there are all kinds of interesting implications for that! The relationship we get between Peter and Yondu (and Peter and the Ravagers in general) at the beginning of the first movie isn’t that of a young adult out in the world for the first time vs. his old mentor/team; they’ve actually had plenty of time to solidify their relationship as adults and fall into certain patterns of behavior. They have been stealing things together and conning people together (and probably conning each other, at times) for years, not just Peter as the teen thief and Yondu as his teacher.

Looking at it from that perspective, I guess the thing that makes the most sense to me based on Peter’s behavior in the first movie is that he’s been off-and-on falling into and out of the Ravagers’ orbit for years at this point. He’s not really with them, so much as he’s not not with them, but he hasn’t quite had That Awkward Conversation with Yondu until he double-crosses them on Morag. “You and me, taking down marks, side by side like the old days” suggests they haven’t really been doing that together in awhile, but he also hasn’t had an actual falling out with the Ravagers to the point of officially parting ways. He’s just kinda been off doing his own thing as the Famous Outlaw Star-Lord.

It also made me think … obviously there are many plausible interpretations of what Peter’s childhood was like, running the gamut from “utterly miserable and abusive” to “lonely, but not that bad” – but thinking about Peter having been an adult with the Ravagers for the last 18 years or so … that’s a really long time! And it suggests that the crew’s general view of Yondu as “soft” on Peter could have a lot more to do with how Yondu treats him as an adult than anything that happened when he was a kid. Things might’ve been reasonably okay when he was small and cute and indulged by pretty much everybody (well, not the real hard cases, and not to say he wouldn’t still have been lonely and scared a lot of the time - but a lot of the pirates might’ve kind of enjoyed having a kid-brother-slash-mascot around), and it was only after Peter started getting older and was no longer small and cute that the resentment started to develop, when he was roughly on the same level with everyone else in the crew but Yondu never really managed to stop noticeably playing favorites with him.

The tl;dr of it is that we’re seeing them at a particular point in their relationship that doesn’t necessarily represent the whole thing. They might actually have been much friendlier at certain points in the past than they are now; they might have gone through (in fact, it makes sense they probably did go through) periods when they were getting along great, and then other times when Peter was even more estranged and working even harder to hold Yondu and the Ravagers at arm’s length than he is at the start of the movie. 20 years of ups and downs, basically.

Seen in that light, too, Peter’s revelation at the end of the second movie that Yondu was effectively his dad all along actually makes even more sense, if they had a decades-long pattern of sometimes being really close, other times fighting viciously and being very far apart, and for Peter the fighting and the harsher aspects of the way Yondu dealt with him tended to loom much larger than the legitimately good times when they were working smoothly together and getting along. And the “click” moment for him at the end of the movie is to turn it around and see all of the good parts as the dominant aspects of the relationship, rather than the fights and his struggle to assert his own independence apart from the Ravagers and his understandable resentment over being effectively press-ganged on board a space pirate ship as an 8-year-old.

Rebrand the World!

I read an article about how fantastic it is that Steven Spielberg was brought on to direct “Ready Player One” because he was the only person who could unite the world’s most powerful brands, allowing the characters to talk about popular media and make cultural references and, you know… speak like modern human beings.

If you don’t have Spielberg’s clout and money, making a film seems like a legal minefield.  In a world where corporations own trademarks on things like architecture, public landmarks, and words, what does one do when shooting a post apocalyptic movie set in Los Angeles; a city that marketing barfed all over?

The Answer: Rebrand the World!
