Don’t judge, but I’ve been thinking back fondly a lot lately about the epic bounty of old memes and trends we had back in the day. A guide for those followers of mine who weren’t around yet, or a Throwback Friday for those of you who were, remember:
The Avengers gag reel
Seriously the equal-opportunities fanservice and fixation on butts was a thing to behold
“Caw caw motherfucker”
Okay there were a lot of Hawkeye-bird jokes (this was before we met Sam Wilson) but that was probably the biggest one
The Hawkeye Initiative
“That’s my secret, Cap. I’m always angry.”
Thor loves Pop Tarts
“This _____, I like it! ANOTHER!”
Major ships: Stony, Clintasha, Thorki (aka Thunderfrost which, lbr, is the arguably the most badass ship name ever), Frostiron, Capsicoul
Also a LOT of people shipped Coulson and Hawkeye even though I don’t even remember them having screentime together? I’ve seen that ship referred to as Phlint like…once, but not at the time.
Chris Evans and his ridiculous shoulder-to-hip ratio
Left-boob grab (this one might actually still be a thing)
“I recognize the counsel has made a decision. But given that it’s a stupid-ass decision, I’ve elected to ignore it!” (this one I KNOW is still a thing)
“I understood that reference”
Crying forever over that deleted sequence of Steve learning that All My Friends Are Dead But Oh Hey Peggy’s Still Alive But I’m Too Afraid to Call Her and then going through the city being Forever Alone
The Superfamily AU where Steve and Tony raised a smol Peter Parker
I could probably make a separate post just for that but here goes
That famous Twitter convo where Tom Hiddleston and a Loki RPer were challenging each other and popularized “I DO WHAT I WANT”
I think like half his actual lines in the movie became memes on some level actually
“I am burdened with glorious purpose” and its many MANY remixes
“Tom sits like a whore” (aka what we called manspreading before that became A Problem)
L O K I ‘ D
The Loki’d Outtakes
Loki’d 2: The Return of Steve (like actually this was a real thing that happened)
People coming together to make a fan book about Wendy for Tom’s birthday
That one picture of Tom in full Loki getup while holding Mjolnir and Cap’s shield
Loki and the Loon, the webcomic about Loki and Tom being roommates that spawned similar blogs for EVERY Avenger rooming with their actor. Almost none of them actually went anywhere, but the original Loki and the Loon was pretty great.
For real though, I’ve never seen any fandom obsession with an actor reach quite the fever pitch that we had with Tom Hiddleston, my god. Bendytoots probably came close though (this was before Ben’s Fall From Tumblr Grace. Tom is still well-regarded, but I think that part of the fandom has finally chilled out).
And lest we forget:
Tom in-character as Loki for SDCC (okay I’m pretty sure this one was later than 2012 but it was still a big fuckin deal when it happened)
Ji Eun: You have legs! Just use your crutches and walk home alone.
Yoon Bum: …You know what, I won’t walk home because my legs are fucking broken you dumb bitch, but I will call someone to pick me up. Can I borrow your phone?
Ji Eun: Uh sure… *hands him phone*
Yoon Bum: *dials number* Yo, 911? So I’m being held hostage by a psychopath and he is making me mingle with his asshole friends and homegirl over here doesn’t realize she’s tryna fuck a serial killer. So can you send a police car to come get me? … Mmm hmm. Alright. Thanks. *hangs up* My ride will be here in ten minutes.
piper halliwell meme → optional - scenes [4/?] ✘ payback’s a witch “Yeah, well, I’m sick and tired of all these reasons that don’t really make any sense. I mean, I barely understand it, let alone Wyatt, whose father is here one day, and then just disappears the next day. I mean, the kid’s a wreck. What am I supposed to do?”
“Everything you are doing, Piper. Living your lives, celebrating his birthday, never giving up hope. You know, he’s a good kid. He’s just acting out.”
