I will push myself to keep going. They taught me dicipline, and I would think about my dreams. I would think about the sacrifices my parents made for me. I would think about my little sister and how I was her hero. I would look at the beauty around me. From the sunshine to the trees. I would keep breathing. There are things I’m still afraid of. When I have to conquer those things I still go back to that park. Before I hit the stage I go back to that park. The park became a state of mind. The park became my strength. The park is what made me who I am.

Because I just couldn’t help myself (based on this video // peggy’s analysis)

“The latest WikiLeaks release has sent a shockwave through the intelligence community, especially in the upper echelons of SHIELD, whose tools for hacking into smart devices were among the information obtained by the group. Joining us today to discuss the impact of this leak on the intelligence community is the former Director of SHIELD herself, Peggy Carter. Ms. Carter, thank you for coming on the show today.”

Peggy smiled slightly into the webcam and adjusted the lapel of her blazer, praying her home office looked tidier on camera than it actually was. “Thank you for your invitation.”

“What are your thoughts regarding the Vault 7 leaks?”

Peggy shrugged. “It’s nothing truly earth-shattering. A lot of the operating systems referenced in the files are obsolete and have since been updated, and the Weeping Angel hack has been presented at security conferences previously. Much of this information is just a confirmation of what was widely assumed–that is, intelligence agencies have the capability to hack into a person’s smart devices. It’s certainly not good for SHIELD to be compromised this way, but the comparison to Snowden’s NSA leaks are certainly inaccurate.”

“And what do you make of Assange’s statement that he will provide assistance to tech companies to patch the bugs mentioned in the Vault 7 files?” The newscaster let out a stifled chuckle. “Ma’am, I believe one of your children just walked in.”

As if on cue, Peggy felt a tug on her sleeve. She placed a hand on her elder daughter’s head and tried to regain her train of thought. “You’re certainly seeing caution from Silicon Valley. They are understandably suspicious of Assange’s motives, given–”

There was a more insistent tug on Peggy’s sleeve, and she looked down to see her daughter Sarah grinning at her, holding a toy in each hand with her glasses slightly askew.

“Not now, darling. Mummy’s working.” Sarah opened her mouth, no doubt to deliver a the most devastating retort a three-year-old could conjure. “No, Sarah. Go find your father.”

Peggy turned back to the camera. “I’m terribly sorry. As I was saying, given that Wikileaks has a history of releasing individuals’ personal information and Assange’s apparent ties with Russia–”

There was a loud crash behind Peggy, and she turned her head to see Eleanor in her walker, bumping into her bookshelves and precariously stacked piles of paper. Steve slid into the room right after her, banging his shoulder on the office door. She looked heavenward as Steve hustled their girls out of the room, one hand clutching the back of Sarah’s jumper, the other practically lifting Eleanor’s walker off the floor.

“My apologies,” Peggy said with an embarrassed grin as Sarah jabbered at Steve in the background about how she got to play in Mum’s office all the time and he was being so unfair and she left her Bucky Bear behind.

“Anyway, with Wikileaks’ reputation–” She was once again interrupted, this time by a loud shriek from Eleanor. Peggy managed to tamp down her wince, but out of the corner of her eye, she saw Steve kneeling in the doorway. He reached for the door handle and missed, almost toppling to the floor. His second try was successful, and he closed the door just as Sarah started yelling to be heard over Eleanor’s babbling.

Peggy sighed and shook her head. “I’m so sorry. As I was saying–can you repeat your question please?”


Later that night, Peggy found herself scrolling through her Twitter mentions. She probably shouldn’t have been surprised that the video went viral, but it was still supremely unnerving to have more internet presence in a given day than her famous, superhero husband.

She reached a tweet that made her stop short. “Steve,” she gasped, “how did they guess that I was wearing pajama bottoms during the interview? I made sure not to move my chair at all!”

I asked her once how she managed to master diplomacy and espionage at a time when no one wanted to see a woman succeed at either. And she said “Compromise where you can. Where you can’t, don’t. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say ‘No, you move’.”

One For Both Teams Part 2

Summary: Starting fifth year in a completely new area proves less confusing than Y/N thought, as she easily befriends a number of people. The only thing is, not all of them get along, and Y/N finds herself torn between them (High School AU).

Part Two

You entered the classroom with ten minutes to spare, and looked around for Ms. Carter. This class was significantly larger than the other, but you managed to spot her in between a pair of boys who had mischievous grins on their faces. She seemed to be giving them a talking to, and so you decided to wait until she was done before you approached her. You gazed out the window, getting lost in your thoughts, when your bag was abruptly knocked off your shoulder.

“Oh,” you exclaimed, turning around to pick it up, only to be looking directly into a familiar face.

“Oh, hi,” he said, looking at you. It was the brunet from yesterday morning. You looked at each other for way longer than you would have liked, before you realised he was holding your bag. “Sorry, I knocked it off when I bumped into you,” he said, and you took your bag from him.

“I guess that makes us even, then,” you said, and he chuckled. Something came to your attention, and you frowned. “Wait, is this not fifth year history?” you asked, confused.

“Yeah, it is.”

You still seemed confused, causing him to furrow his brows slightly.

“Why?”

“Uh… Well… I…” you stuttered, not sure how to bring it up, seeing as you barely knew the guy. “I kinda thought you must have been a sixth year.”

Really?” he asked in disbelief, a grin forming on his face. You shrugged, partially embarrassed, but he seemed more flattered than creeped out. “Awesome. No, I’m a fifth year.”

“Oh, right,” you said, smiling. There was an awkward silence.

“Uh, I’m Bucky,” he said, holding out his hand.

“Y/N,” you said, shaking his hand.

“Y/N, can I have a word?” Ms. Carter asked from behind you, and you snapped your gaze away from him.

“Uh, yes, of course,” you replied, turning to talk to her.

KFC Fires Manager For Discriminating Against Transgender Woman

A woman said her excitement at being offered a job at a KFC in Virginia last week quickly turned to dismay when a manager rescinded the offer within an hour — because she is transgender.

But on Tuesday, national KFC spokespeople said in a statement to BuzzFeed News that the company decided instead to fire the manager and offer the woman, Georgia Carter, a job “effective immediately.”

“The manager has been terminated for violating the franchisee’s anti-discrimination policy, which is inclusive of gender identity and sexual orientation,” KFC said in a statement on Tuesday to BuzzFeed News. The company said the decision came after the owner of the franchise restaurant in Richmond investigated the situation.

“The franchisee’s leadership has also had a conversation with Ms. Carter,” the statement added, “offering her employment at this restaurant or any of their Richmond area KFC restaurants, effective immediately.” Continue Reading.
