only to torture him with love

Daily Reminder Part 2

You can be mad about Vaylin not being redeemed while still liking Arcann’s redemption.

You can be upset that Vaylin, a powerful young woman who was feared by her family and locked away and tortured, was treated unfairly by the game creators. You can be upset that Vaylin didn’t get the same opportunities as her brother to redeem herself, to find friendship, to find love. That the player was not given an option that would result in Vaylin’s redemption.

You can, at the same time, love that Arcann had the capability and opportunity to find redemption. You can appreciate that Arcann, a young man who was abused physically and emotionally by his only present parental figure, overcame the violence put on him as a child and chose to be a better person. That, given the opportunity, he can do the right thing and show kindesses to the galaxy that were never shown to him.

These two thoughts are not mutually exclusive. 

Abuse is not a competition. Being worthy of redemption does not have anything to do with how tragic your backstory is. The only thing that makes someone “worthy” is whether they’re willing to put in the work to change their worldview and therefore, actions.

People who don’t like l@nce or a//ura are entitled to their wrong opinion, but I find it HIGHLY SUSPECT that these are the 2 characters I see the most violent hate for. I’ve seen art of a//ura being beaten and tortured and I’ve seen a LOT of she!th content where l@nce dies and ke!th and sh!ro comfort each other with their dicks bc that’s how things work apparently

honestly i’ve mostly only seen A//ura hate because I live in her tags but every time i’ve gone on a shala blog it’s like there’s more content shitting on L@nce than actually focusing on shith. I’ve even seen the argument that saying L@nce has ADHD or depression or other mental illness is “turning him into sh!ro”. because, you know;

1) being mental ill is Sh!ro’s defining trait (personality whomst?)

2) all mental illnesses are exactly the same. Sh!ro having ptsd and L@nce having adhd? same thing

3) only one (1) mentally ill tm is allowed to be in a show at once. otherwise it’s too much

and then they claim to not be ableist

things you should know about kaz brekker
  • his real name is kaz rietveld but he changed it to brekker when he saw this on a piece of machinery because he thought it sounds badass
  • he broke his leg but instead of letting it heal properly he was like “ah whatever” and then he got himself a cane with which he could probably smash skulls of his enemies
  • at 14 he had a crush on a girl named imogen but he would punch anyone who would dare to say that kaz brekker ever had Feelings™
  • he also had a brother, jordie, but he died
  • so kaz spent god knows how long plotting the Perfect Revenge and it was so good that the man who conned his brother didn’t even know what hit him, pekka was done did dead (not actually but y’know)
  • encourages rumors that he may be an actual demon (i mean im sure matthias wanted to exorcise the demjin at one point tbh)
  • probably started the rumor by disguising himself as someone else and telling people scary (and obviously made up) stories about THE kaz brekker because he’s Extra
  • he dresses in suits because he’s totally Not a thief, he’s a Businessman
  • he hates skin to skin contact which is why he always wears gloves
  • but he doesn’t mind taking them off around inej (or taking his shirt off and cleaning himself in front of her if we’re at this point)
  • he’s really good at maths (he probably threatened some poor soul into tutoring him but in a way that no one would know he actually needed tutoring because he’s THE kaz brekker and he was born smart)
  • practices magic so he can cheat even more
  • the boy would single-handedly break into fort knox
  • he would do literally anything for 30 million kruge (selling his soul included [he probably already did that tho])
  • i’m pretty sure kaz thinks he doesn’t need oxygen as long as he has the money
  • owns like 89 fancy hats
  • treats jesper like his brother and calls him “jes” because jesper’s father did that
  • says he only keeps wylan as a bait but at one point he adopts him even if he doesn’t know this
  • probably writes poems about inej’s laugh
  • goes batshit crazy after inej is injured, tortures and throws a guy who hurt her to the sea but then doesn’t speak to inej for 2 days
  • and when he finally does it’s to discuss money, Romantic™
  • man he loves inej so much but he suppresses the hell out of this
  • he’s obsessed with crows; he has a crow tattoo, he feeds crows, he knows everything about them, he probably talks to them like they’re his kids
  • he’s Not Bothered™ but then he says shit like “i’d crawl to you” or “she was lovely and brave and better than anything he deserved”
  • he’s a big softie for inej
  • honestly he acts like he doesn’t care but he would probably die for inej, nina and jesper
  • but also he’s an asshole and a control freak and he doesn’t even deny that
  • jesper probably shouts “you put cute in execute” whenever kaz kills someone
  • he never smiles
  • and he certainly Did Not Smile when he saw inej, wylan and jesper coming to his rescue in a freaking tank
  • (he did)

  • Gets to know and observes people for a long time before recruiting them
  • He’s very stressed lately as they are a relatively new gang and there are a lot of fights going on with others for territories.

He met you in one these fights when you tried to make a distraction for your gang. You were about to go upstairs to the roof when you bumped into him

“Who the hell are you?” he asked immediately taking his gun out and pointing it at you.

“The same goes for you. You’re not from my gang so I’m here to kill you.”

“Oh really.” he asked smacking the gun from your hand and getting them behind your back. “You chose the wrong member. You see I’m the boss and now I can use you as a hostage.”

  • Nobody has seen him kill anybody because his methods are too cruel to do them in public.
  • Apparently has some beef with EXO’s Sehun. No one dares ask him but it has something to do with Sehun mistaking him for somebody.

By accident you got involved in a weapon dealing incident with him and he has been planing on killing you ever since. You were good at hiding your tracks but he saw you one day in the city and decided to get rid of you just there in the street but then realized that this fight would probably end up in a blood bath so instead he approached you in secret.

“You have to keep quite and come with me, if you don’t want to die here.” he said pressing his gun to your back.

  • When Seungcheol first noticed Jisoo he thought he’s a spy or something (as he appeared out of nowhere) and was about to kill him when he promised that he’s good at at least something
  • And he was, to everyone’s surprise Jisoo’s aim and accuracy is the best out of all of them that’s why he prefers snipers.

He was told to get rid of you silently but you noticed him at the last second and he missed the shot causing a massive panic in the street. You used this opportunity to escape which made Jisoo even more angry. He hasn’t missed a shot in a long time and was determined to get you for that. But whenever he thought he got you cornered he somehow managed to miss and after a while he started to enjoy this little game of yours and soon realized that he doesn’t even want to kill you anymore.

  • His training routine is no joke and everyone is practically dead after it.

He met you before he joined the gang. You were jogging at the same park every morning. As it was really early and not a lot of people were out it became like a habit for him to greet you before he ran past. Eventually he wanted to engage in not only small talk and find out more about you and he started slowing down every single day till he was running at the same pace as you.

“Finally decided to slow down?” you asked.

“Only for you.” he winked.

  • His first idea was to make poison but he somehow made drugs so nowadays he likes mixing different ingredients to try to create a new deadly weapon.

You had the audacity to attempt to take his throne as the king of drug dealing. You were stubborn and despite a lot of orders to report what you’re doing, you made your way around and stole half of his clients. He had enough and thought that the easiest way to fix this problem would be to get rid of you. But he had no idea you thought the same thing and somehow got his whole warehouse blown up. He caught you outside.

“You little shit, now you will have to take responsibility and I’m not letting you go any time soon.”

  • Easiest way for him to get rich was cards that’s why he started gambling at a really young age and now is a pro at it and is amazing at bluffing.
  • Enjoys tricking his own gang members and actually gets the most money out of them.

Played poker with him once. He lost. Now he wants his money back but you keep denying his challenge. He usually shows up at the most random places just to ask you. You got into your car and almost spilled your coffee when you noticed him sitting in the back seat.

“Wonwoo what the fuck?”

“Come on Y/N, let’s play.”

“Can you get over that already? Get the hell out of my car.”

“I guess I have to take some more drastic measures.” he said taking his gun out. “We’re going to my place.” [x]

  • Doesn’t stay in the city for too long as he always has deals all around the country.
  • But when he comes back everyone is extremely happy to see him as he’s mostly chill and just being near him calms the others down.

He met you when he was away on a trip. You asked him for help when your car broke down and he fell in love at first sight. He stayed in the city for more than two months just to keep seeing you and you eventually became good friends when Seungcheol was done with him ignoring his orders and went to get him back himself. Well Mingyu obviously didn’t want to leave you but you didn’t want to go to another city either so he decided to be blunt.

“Y/N I don’t know how you feel about me but love you so I’m sorry but you have only two choices, you either go with me on your own free will or I take you by force.”

  • His specialty - torture. Favourite methods - teeth and fingernails pulling.
  • He charms his targets with his cute appearance and then gets every last bit of information they can muster.

You were unfortunate enough to be his target. You were screaming in pain for at least and hour, swearing that you don’t know anything when Seungcheol came in and told him that they got the wrong person. He set his tools aside and stood in silence for a few minutes.

“Fuck!” he shouted shoving everything from the table. You just watched in horror not knowing what’s going to happen next. He turned around and untied you. He was ashamed of himself and couldn’t look you in the eyes.

“At least let me treat you your wounds.”

  • But still has incredibly good and friendly relationships with the residence of the areas he’s taking care of.

Trying to bypass through his territories was a big mistake. He noticed you’re not a local and decided to find out what you’re doing here. 

“Hey you!” he called you over but you just looked at him and started running. 

“What the heck?!” he thought as he started chasing you. You didn’t know the streets well and ended up in a dead end.

“I got you cornered. Now you’re going to tell me what you’re doing here or I will have to use violence.”

  • That’s why they send him when their is a need to infiltrate, spy or track anybody.
  •  That doesn’t always work out as he likes to make either a grand entrance or exit and by doing that he attracts the attention of anybody nearby.

He was following you to get some information when he lost you. Suddenly he felt a knife press into his back.

“Why are you after me? Who hired you?”

He tried to take you by surprise by turning around and taking the knife out of your hands but he lost his balance and fell on top of you.

“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” you asked.

“Well this is quite the unfortunate situation you got yourself in.” he smirked. “If you promise not to make a scene our meeting won’t take long.”

  • The missions he plans have a 99% chance of success.
  • Failure is not an option for him so he makes detailed strategies for all type of possible scenarios.

What a surprise You showed up at the wrong place at the wrong time and ruined all his perfect planing. The members haven’t seen him this pissed in a long time when he grabbed you and almost dragged you to one of the rooms. He roughly pushed you inside and you almost tripped on your own legs but his gentleman side couldn’t let a lady fall in front of him even when he was angry so he caught you midair and watched how confused you became by the second.

“Sit.” he said pulling you up and pointing you to the chair. “We have to talk.” [x]

  • Despite some members protests he tends to sell the rarest info for big amounts of money to the other gangs.

He find out about you when he wanted to sell some info but the gang told him they already have what they need. Surprised that somebody besides him found it, he was determined to track you down. He was even more shocked when he saw that you’re a woman as there was not a lot of them in the industry.

“What? You think only men can do this type of work?”

“No but I find the women who do incredibly sexy.”

  • Takes all advice given to him very seriously and tries his best to help.

Some trusted former members of his father gang were asked to take care of him so that’s why you followed him and also joined this gang. He found this annoying as he wanted to escape his past and always treated you harshly but when he noticed that you’re not around anymore he got kind of sad. But to his delight you came back after a few weeks after taking care of business.

“Missed me?” You smirked.

“Please don’t ever do that again.” he said, giving you a surprise hug.


A/N: I wonder if I should make a masterlist but I’m so lazyyy… Anyhow, feel free to request more scenarios, reactions etc. I keep up with a lot of groups, both male and female!! 😄

Don’t do it. Don’t click on his name when it pops up on your feed because it’ll only be filled with photos of him. Don’t look at the girls he interacts with because you’ll torture yourself by wondering which one is his. I don’t care if it’s been two years because, regardless of how happy you are without him, sometimes it feels like two days.
Aelin’s Will

Because you know she has one and because I love to torture myself, here are some headcanons about Aelin’s will.

  • She makes her first will as soon as she gets her first paycheck as the king’s champion
  • Everything is left to Chaol in that one
  • Except Elena’s necklace which she leaves to Nehemia
  • And her books are left for Dorian
  • because they are her only friends and who else would she trust her things with?
  • None of them ever know that she even wrote it
  • Her second one is written out before she leaves Mistward to go bargain for Rowan’s life with Maeve
  • Much is still left to Chaol because she still wants him to be happy and stable once he escapes the king
  • However, she leaves her weapons for her carranam
  • because even if she can’t be there to fight with him, he’ll always have a little part of her by his side
  • Rowan also receives part of the money she’s earned
  • because if anything with Maeve goes south, she’s not sure how much he has saved, or if his family will help him at all in his time of need
  • Her third is collaboratively made by the gang while they are on their way back to Terrasen for the first time
  • All her money - to Terrasen
  • All her books are still given to Dorian
  • Her dresses and shoes to Lysandra - because she insisted
  • Her underthings and nightgowns are given to Rowan - much to everyone’s amusement
  • Fleetfoot is left to Evangeline because the little girl just loves the dog so much
  • And Aelin knows that the puppy will take care of Eva no matter what
  • Any and all weapons that she may possess are given to Aedion
  • because he will forever defend Terrasen for her if she is no longer there
  • that mellows the conversation drastically
  • The fourth and final copy of Aelin’s will is written on the boat
  • it is signed just after her marriage license that ties her to Rowan and makes him her king 
  • Lysandra is the only one that knows about it
  • because she is the witness
  • and it leaves everything
  • everything that Aelin is, was, or will be
  • to her
  • because to everyone else, Aelin will not be dead
  • and Lysandra will need everything if she is going to play a convincing part

Wow okay so I read @seokvie‘s and @btssmutgalore‘s sub!Jimin fics and they inspired me to write my own. I’m decently proud of this, considering I have 0 experience writing something like this. Thank you to @jin-oppa for gushing about this topic with me and @fortheloveofsuga for just being a good person in general.


Many would look at your boyfriend’s sharp jaw, thickly muscled thighs, and chiseled face and assume that he was dominant in bed. Rough, even. Jimin did, indeed, carry himself with straight shoulders and his head held high–long legs carrying him confidently across the room as his dark eyes zeroed in on something in the distance. He would present you out in public as if you were a work of art, his thick hand pressed into the small of your back and his full lips grazing your temple. If ever any other man raked their eyes down your body, his warm eyes would harden to stony obsidian orbs–either lowering his hand to rest on your ass or keeping direct eye contact with the potential threat as he brushed his lips across the expanse of your neck. Your boyfriend dominated you in romance, indeed. But you had a secret.

Park Jimin was not dominant in the bedroom.

He would occasionally play the dom role, his jaw clenching and nostrils flaring as he rammed into you from behind–leanly muscled chest pressed against your back as he leaned over you to growl obscenities in your ear through gritted teeth. When he was angry, he would pull your hair and bring you so close to the edge that you could feel yourself beginning to tip over, just before he would yank you back again. But that was only when he was so furious that he was seeing red.

Most of the time, he preferred to wholeheartedly submit himself to you. He thrived off of your praise, the little phrase “Good boy” nearly flinging him off the edge and into an orgasm any time you breathed the words into his hair. He loved to be tied up, and teased, and spanked until he was begging you to let him cum. He adored it when you tortured him with sucking on his cock long past he was finished, the mixture of pain and pleasure drawing him nearer to yet another release.

It wasn’t always so extreme, but there were nights when he needed to be controlled and you needed to control him.

Tonight was one of those nights.

Sometimes I really feel like I’m not reading the same manhwa as some other people. 

People are treating Killing Stalking as if it’s a doujinshi, or fanfiction. They are expecting clichés, exaggerated love, the classic tropes that come with the whole manga/manwha package, an ending that will definitely be the two characters being together in a way. 

This is not that type of manhwa. It should be treated more as a serious graphic novel. 

This is a horror story. 

It’s the story of a man who is being held captive and tortured by the only person who pays attention to him in a mildly positive light (on occasion). This is his dilemma of staying or leaving. This is him trying to stop his sick mind from taking him to a worse place. 

There is no love here. No relationship. 

Just a man who has lived through enough pain for a hundred lifetimes and another man with no heart, trying to fill the gap in his chest by attempting to recreate the times where he could still feel.

Keyword: His speed. Oh god, that speed. He would take time to have sex with you, but he would use his speed while teasing you –first, he’s kissing you against the wall and before you even realize, you are laying naked underneath him, his mouth devouring your dripping wet core, causing you to scream his name from the sudden contact.

Pietro would love to be on top; pressing you against the mattress, kissing your lips or sucking your neck demandingly. This position gives him everything he wants; chance to see your expressions, eventuality to touch you and the oh so good possibility to use his speed on you, fucking you hard while you tangle your fingers to his hair or dig your nails to his back, leaving marks he loves to see at the morning after your heated night together.

My opinion on the “James vs Snape” issue.

I love the HP fandom, but I just hate how in this fandom Snape gets more love than he deserves, meanwhile James Potter gets more hate than he will ever deserve. I can’t believe that it’s 2017 and people still believe Snape was a hero and James was a terrible person.

James Potter was a jerk when he was a teen and yes, he bullied Snape. But he was 15, and “a lot of people are idiots at the age of fifteen”. Tell me that you weren’t an idiot sometimes at that age, I dare you.

If he was such a bad person, then why was he totally okay with Remus being a werewolf? He loved his friends like nobody else, and it’s canon. He became an unregistered animagi so that his werewolf friend wouldn’t have to suffer through the full moon alone.

Do you realize that when James Potter used Levicorpus on Snape, he had already been planning on becoming a death eater and had been trying to out Remus as a Werewolf? This is actual canon from DH.

You have to remember that even if James was an idiot, Snape was no saint either. Remus even said that Snape “never lost an opportunity to curse James”. In fact, it’s mentioned by anyone who talks about the marauders and Snape that the animosity and hexing between them was mutual, so don’t tell me that only James hexed Snape.  We don’t actually know how one-sided Snape’s bullying was. But if what Remus said it’s true, then it was mutual. Even if Snape’s worst memory is true as told,  this happened after he was openly associating with pureblood supremacists, dismissing the use of dark magic as ‘a joke’. 

You need to remember that James despised Dark Magic, and he couldn’t even just say the word “mudblood”. He was the complete opposite to a pureblood supremacist.

He grew up and became Head Boy. He matured, and did it enough for Lily to fall in love with him.

After school (possibly even in his final year), James grew up, and became part of the Order of the Phoenix as soon as he left Hogwarts. He realized what a douche he was to people and changed for the better. He joined the Order because there were innocent people dying for no reason, and he knew he could fight and help. He joined because he loved Lily and he wanted to make sure there was a future for them, a future where they could live happily ever after. And then he died trying to protect his family. He faced Lord Volvemort wandless, unarmed, so his wife and their baby could escape. James Potter was many things but he was not an idiot. He knew that facing Voldemort at that point would be the last thing he did, but did it anyway. He decided that Lily’s life, and Harry’s, was more important than his own. 

You have to rememeber that literally everybody from Hagrid to Lord Voldemort thought James Potter was a good and brave man. 

On the other hand, Snape called the girl he was ”in love with” a mudblood infront of the entire school. He directly verbally abused her with a racial slur and became involved in a movement that wanted to kill her and eradicate her kind. He chose to shatter their friendship because his ego was hurt that a girl was helping him, even though she probably was the only person who was nice to him. 

His treatment of Petunia was terrible. He’s been bullying people since before he even went to Hogwarts. Since he was little, he thought muggle-borns and muggles were inferior. 

He created a spell that could kill his enemies when he was at Hogwarts. And after that, he finally joined a terrorist organization that wanted to kill people like the woman he was supposed to be in love with. He probably killed and tortured people. He was a loyal Death Eater for multiple years.   

Snape may have loved Lily, but his love for her was selfish, seen in the fact that he was willing to let her husband and her infant child die. Actually, I don’t think he loved her. He was obsessed with her. Or at least, he loved the idea of her that was on his mind, not the real Lily Evans. If he had really loved her, he would have tried to save her family, knowing that she would suffer if they died. But he was willing to let a baby and an innocent man die if it meant he could save Lily. If it meant he could have her. 

And when Lily died to protect her child, he realized that he made the wrong decision and “changed”. He became a spy, and I know it was hard. I understand that. I acknowledge Snape’s efforts as a spy and his contributions to the war. In the end, he turned out to be a brave man who tried to rectify his mistakes. But that doesn’t really change how a terrible person he was.

He abused his students, he bullied them. He targeted Neville, knowing he already had self-esteem issues, knowing what happened to his parents.  He threatened to poison his pet. He consciously targeted someone he perceived as weak, to the point where he became Neville’s worst fear at age 13. A fucking teacher was his biggest fear, not the people that tortured his parents into madness. Don’t you see how fucked up is that?!

Snape body shamed and insulted Hermione, who was an intelligent and hardworking student (just like Lily). He made her cry. 

Yes, he tried to protect Harry, and saved his life more than once. But he also verbally abused him, a neglected, abused, orphan who had done nothing wrong but look like his dead father. A father that he didn’t even know, by the way. Snape mocked and insulted him at every turn. Snape did everything that he could to make Harry’s life miserable because it was his way to have his revenge against James. This is not a 15 years old boy bullying another, it’s a fucking 30 years old man abusing a kid because he couldn’t let it go his hate about a dead person.

He tried to have an innocent man killed because of what happened when they were 16. Yes, Sirius was an idiot for that, I’m not denying it, but he didn’t coerce Snape into doing anything. He just gave him information. It means that Snape, on his own, decided it would be a great idea to sneak into the Shrieking Shack just to prove that Remus was a werewolf. 

He caused Remus to lose his job after spending years suffering in poverty. He deliberately made Remus’ students to write an essay on how to spot and kill a werewolf, to emotionally attack and possibly out him as a werewolf. He later did out him to the entire wizarding world, just because he was angry because Sirius didn’t die.

After seeing the abuse Dursley’s inflicted on Harry, he thought it was funny and felt no sympathy. Harry was fifteen. The same age that Snape was when he was (supposedly) “bullied”. He didn’t care about the abuse, he didn’t see himself in Harry. He thought  it was funny. Fucking funny. 

Usually, people at 15 are jerks and bully each other. But teachers aren’t supossed to abuse kids. 

James Potter was a jackass, but he didn’t join the equivalent of a magical nazi organization when he left Hogwarts. He didn’t experiment with dark magic and he died protecting his family. He grew out of it. He was a good person in the end.

Snape only betrayed Voldemort because he was chasing after Lily. He only left the death eaters because he wanted to protect Lily, if Neville was the chosen one, he would remain in his position as a Death Eater.

So sorry if I prefer James over Snape all the way.

The reason Outlast is such a good horror game story wise is that the real horror only happens if you have empathy for the people in the Asylum and know that the real monsters are the rich guys in suits who like money enough to hurt people and keep hurting people

Like the whole time Miles Upshur doesn’t say a bad word about the people in the Asylum, even the ones tryna kill him. The whole time he talks shit it’s either about the way the place isn’t fit for human habitation, how Murkoff is horrible, and he talks allllll the shit about Trager and Wernicke 

But when it comes to the guys actually actively tryna kill him he knows it’s not their fault and is even sad when Chris Walker gets killed

He was always “fuck this place” and never “fuck these inmates”. Never. The only inmate he hates is Trager because Trager deserved it and because he was a torturer long before he was an inmate. 

And that also helps with understanding why Miles doesn’t fight back even when he has, like, parkour skills enough that you know he got upper body strength

1) he doesn’t wanna die, obviously, but also 2) he doesn’t wanna hurt the inmates. He’s fighting Murkoff, not them. 

The real reason Outlast is so good is because its driving factor is empathy, and that’s why a lot of people love it. Miles’ empathy brings him into the asylum and keeps him from just picking up a weapon and hurting the inmates, Waylon’s empathy gets him trapped in the first place. The lack of empathy is what made the Asylum so awful in the first place. And I love it when enemies are still human, and so so very sad, even when they’re scary and violent, because it gives layers and levels to a game that you don’t see in other horror.

One Last Time
Breaking up is hard to do.

Categories: Smut, angst
Preview: “Babe?” you press him when he still hasn’t moved apart from the occasional brush of his lips to your sternum. The overly familiar pet name slipped from your lips before you knew it, but if he notices it, if it makes him feel anyway, he doesn’t react.

“Minute,” his voice is thick and hoarse with unexpected emotion. “Jus’ one more minute, love.”

The thought that he’s taking just a moment to grieve is almost crushing to you and you blink back tears as the reality of the situation crops up again. You stroke your fingers through his hair, reveling in the softness, even when it is damp, and you let him absorb what he has apparently found nestled in your chest.

It’s About Balance
In which Harry is your junior and you are – literally – fucked.
Rating: M
Categories: Smut, fluff(?)
Preview: He sweeps your hair away from the back of your neck and his teeth close down on the nape of your neck – firm, but not as animalistic as he had before. You still moan and writhe under him, but he pins you so you can’t escape.  “S’this mean I won?”  

“What’d you get the other stuff for?” you ignore him, your voice a little wheezy from the weight of him on your back.  

He moans in thought and kisses down the back of your shoulder and between your shoulder blades. “S’all about balance, love.” He licks your spine, savoring the taste of sweat and skin – a privilege he has waited long and worked hard for. “Speakin’ o’ balance,” he muses. “I’d like to balance you on my face if that’s a’right w’you.”

Warnings: Mentions of daddy!kink, about 3-4 times. Nothing heavy.
Preview: “I wan’ a chance,” he repeats. “A fair chance. If yeh really don’ wan’ another go, I’ll stop pushin’, but I want yeh to stop me because you don’ want it, not cause you think you shouldn’t.”

He looks years older in his agony, and the frown lines around his mouth….

No, you don’t like those. He shouldn’t frown so, ever. Not when that beautiful grin and a pair of dimples hides behind them. You reach up and smooth your fingertips over the tight corners of his mouth and Harry turns his mouth into your wrist, right to your pulse point. The gestures from the both of you are simple, but intimate, and there’s an instinctual ease to them, like a second nature. They’re like a shock straight through to your heart and you whimper under your breath. He could be pulling strings that he knows will work, but when his green eyes flicker back to you, there’s such resignation in them and no, no, you don’t want this beautiful boy – and he is honestly beautiful, even sliding out of shadows – to look this sad.

Preview: “What are you going to do?” you scoff at him. “Drag me across the table and teach me a lesson?”  

Harry’s swears he feels his palms itch and his fingers twitch. “Don’t tempt me,” he says stiffly. 

 “I’d like to see you try.” Your laugh is derisive and you’re not sure why you’re being quite so contentious, but then he’s leaning over across the corner of the table and has slid his hand into your hair and you think you have your answer.  

“Paying attention to me now, hmm?” you ask in a dry simper. You refuse to wince when he tugs at the roots, though you breath does catch in your throat.  

“Is that what you want?” he asks sharply. “You want some attention?” It is, he realizes as he looks into your unflinching eyes – you want this.

Preview: You’re squeezing your eyes against tears. Oh, you hate him. Why does he have to say it for the first time now? In the ugliest of fights and war of words you two have ever had?

“M’a prick,” he moans in quiet anguish as if begging you to forgive him. “M’a tosser, m’a twat, m’a bloody, cowardly git… I am a child, m’everythin’ wrong an’ you’d be right to leave, but m’askin’ yeh please, don’t.”

Preview: “Tha’ one’s cute, isn’t he, love?” Harry smiles and pulls a face at a big-eyed baby in a cart who promptly sticks out a little pink tongue in happiness and claps his hands together.

“Yes, love,” you reply. “Very cute.”

Harry pinches your side knowingly and he doesn’t have to say a word for you to hear him say that your baby would be cuter.

After Midnight

Preview: Your hand is slowly gripping down on his arm more and more and you have to bite your lip to contain a whimper. You don’t know how long you torture yourself like this before you feel his breathing start to change from the even pattern of sleep to harsh pulls through his teeth and small groans that break past his lips. If he’s questioning what’s gotten into you, he sure as fuck doesn’t care enough to pursue it.  

Snowbound
You’re snowbound with Harry and your son. Cozy, right? But the two of you broke up two and a half years ago.

Categories: Angst, smut, drama, fluff, family
Preview: “You haven’t stopped calling me love all night,” you share your observation. You’re warm and happy enough from the wine, the lack of strife between you two, and the sight of your son that you can bring it up to him without it coming off as rude or mean or something thereof.

“I haven’t stopped since you left.”

He says it so casually you’re not sure he really understands the implications. It even takes you a minute to comprehend exactly how he means that, and you hear a faint ringing in your ears when you do.

Preview: You could have days like this all the time, before your son was too old to want them and would rather spend time with his friends. You could give your son his father and the father his son, and you could have family snow days, and zoo trips, and lazy days in bed and trips to his shows when the tours he does set off on keep him local.

You could be kissed into the back of a door every morning.

Preview: He can see secret smiles and long-denied skin being unwrapped from inside clothes. He can taste laughs into kisses and desperate shushing against helplessly open mouths. He can smell your hair and feel your skin under his lips as he faded into the best sleep he can remember having in a long, long time.

He’d had his family back.

Preview: You knock as loudly as you dare to on his door, suddenly nervous after having plucked up your courage.

“Come in.”

You crack his door open and peer in guiltily to find him staring at you from the bed bleary eyed. And yet, you can tell he hasn’t been sleeping, only trying and probably failing like you have been.

“We’re supposed to spend time together,” you say in a hushed voice that wobbles from nerves.

Preview: You smile sleepily at him and reach for his hands to pull him from his would-be-bed. “You are a performer,” you murmur. “Your physical conditioning is very important. You’ve tried very, very hard to fall asleep, but the fact is,” your eyes sparkle with mischief he hasn’t seen in too long, “this couch gives you a backache.”

“Yeah?” he asks with an almost dopey grin, dimples popping out.

“Not good at all.” You lean in and pull his bottom lip in between yours and suckle softly and his fingers slide into your hair with a soft groan. “So Daddy gets to sleep with Mummy tonight.”

You feel a pair of eyes on you and you roll your head to find Harry in the doorway. There’s a softness to his gaze as he observes the two of you and you see him nod a bit as if to say “good”.

This is where the two of you belong.

Preview: The first thing he sees is a drawing in crayon – it’s a little scribble-y and abstract, and his hair looks a mess (but he supposes that’s just truthful), and Harry smiles at the two large green dots that are right in the middle of his forehead in the drawing.

“S’me, innit?”

“Uh huh,” his son nods. “And that’s me,” he points to a smaller, curly-headed figure in the drawing. “And Mumma’s in the house, but we can’t see her.”

He points to a blob behind the window that Harry presumes is meant to be you – the colors match your skin and hair, at least somewhat, and he stares at it for a moment before his eyes drift to the message on the other side of the card.

Whoops-a-daisy, my legs just… fell open.”

Preview: “Is this a nail in our coffin?” You hope your voice is steady, but you think he can hear the trembling in it. “We had one last go around?”

“Is it?” he asks almost snidely but there’s a flash in his eyes and his hand makes a grabby sort of motion – as if he’d wanted to lunge and latch onto you.

To keep you.

You stare at him, long and hard. Your silence makes his jaw set and you see his eyes widen just slightly to a panicked setting.

Harry grunts again, sounding slightly less cross and more like a hum.

“A little baby with ten fingers, and ten toes.” Your voice cracks a bit and it takes Harry a moment before he peels your grip off from around him and turns over. He looks at you with puffy, green eyes that are sleepy and unfocused but they manage to find you somehow.

“An’ a baby mouth,” he continues. “An’ two eyes, and a nose jus’ like his mumma’s.”

Preview: Suddenly his nose is against yours, though, and although you know he’s “rubbing off” the kiss, it makes you stiffen and your fingers go slack on his face. Harry, too, has caught onto it, and he’s yet to step back. Your smile is fading and the both of you are still as statues until he bumps it – just a bit – against yours. Your heart drums aggressively in your chest as you timidly bump back, and there’s a pause where neither of you move beyond that; then, he nuzzles once more. They’re Eskimo kisses, for all intents and purposes – soft little affectionate rubs while you exchange breaths of peppermint and chamomile.

Preview: Harry grumbles in response, and you kiss his cheek. He, in turn, rolls his head to you and peeks through his lashes at you. Green eyes flicker over your face for a moment with almost feverish confusion – but you’ve touched his forehead and he’s perfectly cool – and then he sighs and bends his arm to stroke your cheek with the back of his unusually ringless knuckles.

“Was wondering about you,” you comment, still stroking his hairline. “You didn’t come get me.”

Harry cracks a smile, eyes falling shut. “You were mad a’me,” he slurs by way of explanation.

You press your lips to his temple, humming your confirmation. “Go back to sleep,” you whisper. “Sorry for waking you.”

Preview: “Y’okay?” you ask with your palm on a sweat-dampened shoulder of his t-shirt.

Harry grunts once.

“Someone at the door,” you tell him.

“Yeah,” he says, speaking at last with a gravelly voice.

“Your son wants breakfast,” you try again.

“He’ll wait.”

You huff, and although your limbs are still heavy with sleep and orgasmic bliss, you wriggle out from underneath the blankets.

“C’mback to bed,” he whines deeply.

The jackhammering of the needle over his heart, an impulsive decision that he doesn’t regret – not now, not ever – is still ringing loudly in his ears, but that’s the only sound in his ears.

It’s still – too much so. There’s no life in the flat, not even sleeping.

It’s cold.

“Daddy’s angry,” your son observes and you sigh as you stroke his hair. You’ve sat yourself on the floor, still in your jacket, and your son’s is on your lap, having just been removed in a fierce tugging battle.

“Yeah,” you agree and you wince when you hear a heavy thud from the office. “But he’s not angry with us.”

“He’s angry at the people taking pictures?”

“Where’re your jogging bottoms?” he asks hoarsely, slowly – like whatever is going on with you will hear him and decide to accelerate and he won’t be able to help however he can. His eyes are lit up and alert, locked on you and looking for the most minute changes.You inhale shakily. 

“Drawer,” you answer weakly.

Harry’s cheeks and nose are pink from the cold and winds, and his bag is thrown carelessly to the side along with his boots, the only part of his outfit he’s managed to toe off.

He smiles crookedly, smugly, a single dimple burrowing on the side of his mouth that’s lifting. “What’s ha—“

His greeting is cut off when you all but collide with him, inhaling the cold smell of the outside off his coat mixed with the warm, spicy scent off the tan skin of his neck.

“Alright, alright,” he laughs as you grip his coat, but his own viselike hold around you betrays a degree of his own desperation. “Can I have a look at yeh?”

You shake your head against him and feel one of his large hands run over the back of your head, stroking your hair gently as he chuckles warmly. “Not yet then?”

He’s sure of it, though he fought against notions of how nice it would be to have someone who understood him and who he was apart from a popstar for almost as long as he’s been attracted to you. You’re the girl who ordered lemon curds and who split them with him when he came to visit while talking to him about all the little things he was missing by leading his extraordinary life. So much had changed, but you hadn’t, and he thinks you’re one of only a handful of people who know him for who he is rather than who he’s become.

How is he supposed to look your family in the eye when he’s got such weighted thoughts as these on his mind?

When he pulls it out from under the tangle of blankets when the two of you are getting dressed the next morning, you pull it back and jerk your chin towards one of the other ones lying around your bedroom.

“Why?” he asks, a bit of an indignant pinch in his voice. “S’chilly out! That’s a t-shirt!”

You pat his stomach gently on the way by to throw the jumper into one of your drawers. You’ll wear it when he’s gone and bury your nose in it and look for markers of him, and you, and hope that the moments without him are more fleeting than the ones with him.

He didn’t mean it. Really, he didn’t. Well, he did, but he didn’t. And he certainly didn’t mean it anymore. Not now. Not now that you were hanging it over his head and torturing him with it.

It had been just another nightly FaceTime before bed from miles and miles apart; well bedtime for you, the night had only just started in Jamaica. And it was just typical banter to hide the sour feeling due to return once you hung up. And it was just a sly comment to rile you up, get you excited to join him in Jamaica in a few days.

“Yeh not gonna be able to keep yeh hands off me, love.” And that would have been enough, but Harry often struggled when it came to shutting his big, stupid mouth. “Not even if yeh wanted.”

Your eyes went wide in surprise, mouth ajar with incredulity. “Excuse me?” you scoffed. “I can keep my hands to myself much better than you can, H.”

“Right.” A cocky smirk crossed his lips. “Always got yeh hands all over me, kitten, ’specially when we’re reunited. S’never enough with you. Keep me up all night–satisfy your every need–but then yeh right back on me in the mornin’. Insatiable, you are.”

“If I’m insatiable, what’s that make you?!” Sure, he was right; you liked a few sleepless nights upon reunion, enjoyed testing the limits of your bodies, but it’s not like he protested. It’s not like he didn’t want to explore your body, relearn your inner workings mind, body and soul and try a few new things, too.

“Sex slave. At your every beck and call, kitten.” He was pleased with himself, grinning ear-to-ear as he teased you.

I am going to submit a random headcanon to you:  

Stiles dragging the pack to play Laser Tag.

Stiles that played once, when he was twelve. He asked it as his birthday present, and John and Melissa drove them to the nearest place from Beacon Hills. Stiles was absolutely delighted, until they learned that they would be put with strangers to form a team. It all went downhill from there. 

They were left alone to be shot at fifteen seconds in, and had to hide under a ramp. Scott had an asthma attack when the fog machines started and Stiles, terrified, had to drag both of them out. He then fell into a full blown panic attack in the changing rooms.

So, not their best memory.

But fast forward seven years later. They are nineteen now, Scott is a werewolf and Stiles has been tortured and shot at. Laser tag is gonna be easy. Stiles is so ready to avenge their younger selves.

He only need a team.

Stiles prudently presents the idea during pack night. He’s not worried for most of them, he knows that most of his friends have an unhealthy love for violence and winning. He’s also ready to make Scott cry in order to convince Isaac.


The only unknown variable is their taciturn alpha. Somehow, convincing him to play with lasers in a room reeking of teenager’s hormones and sweat seems like a difficult task. But Stiles has prepared his speech, he has perfectly reasonable arguments, and he will bullshit about pack unity and trust exercises if need be.

Of course, because this is Derek and he likes to fuck up with Stiles’ expectations, he’s only finished the first sentence of his passionate plea when Derek raises one hand in the air to stop him.

Yes,” he breathes, and smiles. They all blink at him a little. Derek keeps smiling, bunny teeth showing and looking almost… excited.

So.

Derek’s family apparently used to throw their kids into the woods to pitch them against each other for fun.

Stiles is not surprised.

Stiles is awfully not surprised.

This was the family whose genes created Peter Hale.

Not noticing their stunned silence, Derek describes his childhood memories. During their monthly run under the full moon, adults used to hide colored pieces of tissue everywhere. The next day, Derek, his sisters and cousins were all let loose, in several teams, into the wood. At dusk, the team that was able to bring back the more targets to their home base while protecting said home base from enemy raids won. The prize was some old trophy, bragging rights and first crack at every dish during the huge dinner.

Derek is trying so hard to communicate his enthusiasm for his claws-and-fangs-allowed, hunger-game version of catch the flag that his hands are moving a little bit in the air. It’s adorable.

When Scott tries to get back on the subject of laser tag (Stiles glares at him, because Derek was sharing things), Derek immediately nods and explains helpfully that there is a place supernatural-friendly just 45 minutes away from Beacon Hills. There is no protest in the pack. Stiles bats the air with his fist in victory.

Their first game together teaches Stiles a lot of things.

Villain Deku Headcanons

{I can’t fucking help myself. I love the thought of Deku becoming a villian. It just makes things all the more interesting~ And plus, I kinda love seeing my baby in pain~}

  • In the beginning, Deku was his usual self. His dreams becoming a hero big and his powers still being a little out of control but he’s getting there. However, Deku becoming a villain didn’t happen by choice. In fact, he was captured, threatened and forced into submission.
    • Kurogiri was the villain who captured him and he brought him back to the League of Villains where they pretty much mentally and psychologically tortured him. They also used a sort of hypnotism, for one of the villains had a quirk that could enter into someone’s mind and unlock what most try to mentally keep away.
    • Tomura knew about Deku’s quirk and was actually inspired to force Deku to join the LOV after convincing All For One, knowing that he would be reliable with All Might’s power and the leader being a little out of commission. Not only that, but it would cause severe emotional pain to all who cared and loved him, so that was a big plus.
  • Throughout Deku’s torture, their main objective was to bring out his hatred. They wanted him filled to the brim was hate and murderous intent with hands craving to destroy. It was somewhat of a way to create a false objective that’ll help the process of conversion much easier.
    • Deku didn’t know why, but throughout his torture, he thought of Bakugou and it caused him to grow this undeniable hatred towards him. In fact, after growing that false objective to eradicate him, he happily accepted the conversion in becoming a villain to later use it to show off and destroy Bakugou with this new persona that overflowed him with this addicting feeling of power and dominance.
  • After the torture, they gave him a new attire that wasn’t as colorful as his original hero suit. It was straight monochrome with a single black vest, a white undershirt, black dress pants and shoes, and black gloves.
    • Deku grew a fondness for pain and even grew a sexual arousal towards it, rendering him in becoming an extremely big masochist. He considers pain to be…’orgasmic’.
      • The League of Villains gave Deku a personal ‘playroom’ where he was free to enjoy experimenting on victims however he pleases. Thanks to that, Deku doesn’t want any part in whatever the hell the league is doing. He would always much rather play with his ‘toys’ than deal with the trouble of going outside. The only time they convinced him to go with them is by bringing up Bakugou whom he was ready to destroy since day 1 of his conversion.
  • Deku talks like a gentleman, but acts like a sadist. In fact, his speech and actions do not match at all. It’s his way of mocking someone and asserting his power/dominance over a person he considers to be weaker than him.
    • “Please do pardon me, I do understand it is not my right to be concerned of a matter that doesn’t involve me, but it seems your arm is broken, shall I fix it and make it better for you?” *Breaks arm even more* “Oh dear…I seem to have made it worse, do excuse my inconvenience to you~”
      • Deku rarely cusses, but when he does, then it’s a sign you’ve crossed the line.
        • “I hope you’ll excuse me when I say this. But I hope you fucking rot in hell and eat shit. You will submit to me whether you fucking like it or not.”
  • He hates the fact that they attack in groups. He feels like it slows him down. He would much rather deal with the heroes getting in the way of his ‘objective’ by himself. He grew an enjoyment of taking heroes one-on-one.
    • Bakugou’s fight with him was the one he considered to be the most fun. Since he got to freely talk down to him and mock him while also beating the living shit out of him.
      • “Have you already forgotten~? Haa..I’ve forgotten how small minded you are do pardon me~ But I’ve told you before, I’m not the same Deku you once knew~ In fact, I’m stronger, much stronger than you in fact..and my goodness does it feel wonderful~ No wonder your pride gets destroyed easily~ *chuckles and shrugs* it’s quite fun to break it~”
      • The fight lasted for quite a while, but Deku won and was quite proud of it. In fact, he happily rubbed it in his face. He even went so far as to crush Bakugou’s face further into the dirt with his foot.
  • Kurogiri gave Deku the pleasure of taking him back to their hide out and straight to his ‘playroom’ where Deku had a field day in.
    • It took quite awhile for Bakugou to break and almost lose his mind, but afterwards, Deku began voicing his undeniable hatred towards him. It wasn’t a feeling of wanting to prove him wrong, but it was to kill him.
      • “I hope you know I didn’t want to become this way at first….but after realizing how much my life has been hell thanks to you….I grew to accept it…“ 
      • "Especially since it’s all your fault that I am like this……your the reason I’m the villain you know now…..and your the reason why I became so scared of everything…….you made me feel worthless……and now…I’m going to remind you that you’re nothing but a piece of meat to play with for my personal enjoyment. And there is nothing…you can say…or do….to stop me……you’re far to much of a weak…little shit.”

It’s been a week since the first time I watched “Take Back the Falls”, and there are still some things I’m just not over. For example:

-The way Mabel throws out her arms like a little kid who wants to be picked up when she sees Stan. (This is the moment I started to tear up. That’s right. I didn’t even make it twenty seconds in to this episode.):

-The look on Dipper’s face when he tells Stan about Ford’s capture.

-Ford’s split second of open panic when he realizes he’s in chains. (Seriously, the sound of Ford’s chains rattling over Bill’s song was just chilling.)

-Watching Stan pout all the way through the first half of the episode, but just feeling sorry for him because of where it’s coming from.

-Ford being tortured—actually on-screen, screaming, we see him fried to a crisp tortured, and not only does he not give in, he strikes this little “fight me” boxer pose.

-On top of that, the way Ford is willing to endure days if not weeks of torture at the hands of the being who manipulated and betrayed him, but the second Bill threatens the kids he breaks (and I flash back to that scene in AToTS when he looks so excited to learn he has a niece and nephew. Turns out he’s hiding a great big bleeding heart under that sweater and he loves those kids with every square inch of it and OH CRAP THIS WILL NOT END WELL).

-Stan taking the worst possible moment to throw a childish tantrum because Ford won’t thank him.

-Ford taking an even worse moment to make an equally childish and wholly pedantic remark on Stan’s grammar, thus underlining just how petty the grudge between them has become.

-This moment, because it seems to be the moment they both realize how stupid they’ve been:

-Bill locking Stan and Ford in a cage and it turning out to be his undoing, because once Stan and Ford actually talk to one another they begin to see each other for who they actually are, and they make up as though nothing ever happened.

-Stan.

-Ford deciding to throw himself, the world, and everything he’s spent thirty years working towards away just for his dumb family. 


-Stan deciding to take the burden from Ford’s shoulders and throwing himself away for the sake of the world and his family, even though he knows it’s something he won’t walk away from. 

-Ford’s face when he points the memory gun at Stan. (That…that hurt.)

-Did I mention Stan? Not any specific scene, just Stan in this episode in general, but right here in particular: 

-Mabel being told that Stan is gone and reacting just like every kid who’s lost someone for the first time and who doesn’t quite understand how that can happen. 

- “He saved me. You’re our hero, Stanley.” (No, that’s okay, Hirsch. It’s not like I was using my heart anyway.)

-Actually, every dang moment of this episode between the point when Dipper and Mabel try to distract Bill in order to give their uncles time to get away and the scene with Mabel’s scrapbook was just mesmerizing. It’s incredible. I love every single frame. That was the best sequence of the whole show, bar none.

-The eucatastrophe:

-The fact this this show had a eucatastrophe.

-This and everything it implies:

-And last, but not least, THIS:

Torture in Fiction: Iron Man

One of the establishing films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man is now older than I would like to think about and has helped establish the character as a fan favourite and a house hold name.

And like most of the Marvel superhero films it uses torture. Today I’m going to have a look at how the story uses torture and how well it does so.

In case anyone hasn’t seen the movie here’s a little synopsis of the relevant plot details.

The story follows Tony Stark, a wealthy white American genius who makes his living designing and selling weapons. While demonstrating a new type of missile to troops in Afghanistan Stark’s convoy is attacked and he’s kidnapped.

Held to ransom by a pan-Asian terrorist group Stark is ordered to build them weapons. When he refuses he is tortured and when his captors are unsatisfied with his progress they threaten another hostage (a man called Yinsen) with torture as well.

Then (because it’s a superhero story) Stark builds a super-suit, escapes and goes on to become Iron Man.

Once again I’m rating the depiction and use of torture, not the movie itself. I’m trying to take into account realism (regardless of fantasy or sci fi elements), presence of any apologist arguments, stereotypes and the narrative treatment of victims and torturers.

I’m giving it an 8/10

The Good

While it’s certainly not the most harrowing or horrific the torture scenes in Iron Man are among the best I’ve ever seen. The high points are:

1)      Stark is near-drowned and Yinsen is told he’ll have hot coals put in his mouth. Both tortures are portrayed accurately.

2)      Torture doesn’t change the opinions or ideals of either Stark or Yinsen. Despite threats of (and actual) violence they both remain resolutely opposed to their captors.

3)      When under torture and ‘forced’ to agree to manufacture weapons Stark responds very realistically: he lies. He says exactly what he thinks his torturers want to hear as part of a calculated ploy. It buys him a reprieve from torture and time, which he uses to escape.

4)      This is echoed with Yinsen. When the terrorists start to suspect that Stark isn’t building their missiles Yinsen is threatened with torture, accompanied by the demand that he tell them all what Stark is doing. Helpless and restrained, the glowing coal inches from his face Yinsen lies repeatedly and convincingly.

5)      Neither character is portrayed as particularly macho or somehow superhumanly resistant to trauma. While they’re both ‘good guys’ their resistance to torture isn’t connected to their morals. The scenes leave the impression that these two men are just trying to survive.

6)      Torture is shown to have a lasting psychological effect on Stark. He is not portrayed as ‘broken’ but torture changes him. He’s shown being distant from the people he cares about, he’s often angry and occasionally obsessive. In later movies he seems to struggle with addiction.

7)      Torture also has a significant effect on Stark’s outlook on life and it’s very much not in the way his torturers intended. Stark stops making weapons and starts to disrupt terrorist cells and destroy illegal stockpiled weapons. His opposition to the group that held him is entrenched and that’s shown to be partly due to torture.

8)      The scenes are emotive and shocking and there is never the remotest suggestion that any of this is ‘ok’. Torture in this movie is always and completely wrong. That shouldn’t be rare.

 

The Bad

1)      It’s interesting watching this and thinking about the politics of the time. Stark isn’t waterboarded: in waterboarding the victim is strapped down on their back and a wet cloth is placed over their face, their feet are raised, more water is poured over the cloth and it prevents them from breathing. Stark has his head held in a bucket of water. And yet I can’t help feeling that waterboarding is what the film makers are invoking here. Which means that at a time when the USA was getting bad publicity for waterboarding illegally detained brown men, these film makers chose to show a white American being tortured in a similar way by a group of ambiguously brown Arab-coded men. That does not sit particularly comfortably with me.

2)      The tortures shown are not normal for the region of the world and the people shown. Neither character is subjected to falaka, a staple torture across the Middle East and this region of Asia. Stress positions characteristic of the region are also not used. Instead a very ‘American’ torture is used against Stark and Yinsen is threatened with a scarring torture which is now vanishingly rare.

Miscellaneous

It’s worth noting that the only people tortured or threatened with torture in this movie are the heroes.

And there is a strong tendency in fiction to show torture as more effective and more justifiable when the victims are ‘bad people’.

Overall

Iron Man does a bloody good job handling torture.

The bad points I’ve highlighted indicate a lack of understanding for the region but I think that’s offset by the weight of what’s done well. From the scenes themselves to the effects on the characters.

Too many action heroes seem to shrug off torture as though mental health issues make them lesser. Stark genuinely seems to struggle after his escape and that struggle does not destroy him.

And I love that he not only lies but lies repeatedly and successfully. This is tied to his intelligence but I think it’s played more as a factor of his personality then of intelligence per say. Stark resists by lying because it’s how he personally can best resist.

Whatever the flaws in the rest of the movie, the way Iron Man handles torture is very good indeed.

- Accepted his own death and willingly gave up his life for the greater good, only to wake up 70 years later to find his friends, family, everyone he had ever loved is dead and gone (save for Peggy)
- Forced to rapidly assimilate to a time period he should’ve never been alive to witness
- Discovered his best friend is still alive, only to have him try and kill him many times over

Bucky Barnes:

- Had his own arm ripped from his body while falling down a ravine, and come within an inch of death
- Kidnapped by a Nazi organization
- Tortured and brainwashed by said organization for 70+ years to the point where he had no concept of his own identity
- Treated like an animal and forced to commit countless murders
- Spent two years slowly piecing himself together after that severe trauma, only to be framed for a bombing and sought out by the entire world for a crime he didn’t commit
