raise that banner

these seem to gather more traction so if you are a merlin/arthurian, game of thrones, legend of the seeker, defiance,doctor who, historical,reign ,borgias, tudors  or in general a muse that wants an interaction with SOON TO BE KING ARTHUR PENDRAGON like/reblog/comment on this. my only strict rule is no dickbiscuits i am a nice polite friendly person be one too.  

You know what I like about Hela?

She’s a straight-up villainous character who isn’t “crazy” at all.

And I mean that both in the real sense of having mental dysfunctions and in the Hollywood sense of “evil, but irrational and senseless about it.”

Everything  Hela is and does makes perfect sense for her and for the world she was raised in. She was born into a bloodthirsty society and was raised to be Daddy’s little warmonger. She was Odin’s executioner and she helped him conquer and destroy and empire-build. And when the day came when Odin decided he’d had enough blood and wanted to stop, Hela shrugged her shoulders and said, “Nah, I’m good as I am.”

That she then raised her banner against Odin when he tried to suppress her should really have come as no surprise to Odin or anyone. Hela is exactly what he raised her to be, and nothing about her is irrational or senseless any way. It’s merely that her priorities and values – all perfectly internally consistent – happen to be utterly inimical to our heroes, the civilians of Asgard, and the rest of the universe.

“Hey, Tony can I–”

“Jesus.” The plate Tony was holding shattered across the kitchen floor when it slipped through his fingers. “Jesus, Steve sorry about that. Sorry.”

“I didn’t mean to startle you.” Steve said with a frown, and Tony just shook his head.

“It’s fine. Just lost a little in my head is all.” He bent down to start cleaning up the mess.

“Let me hel–”

“I got it.” Tony waved him away. “What can I do for you, Captain?”

“Well, I was thinking maybe you could take a look at Bucky’s arm? It’s been freezing up or not flexing or something and it’s hurting him quite a bit. I told him you’d be happy to help him with it.”

Happy to help–” Tony cleared his throat. “That’s fine. But I’m busy, so send him to Banner. He’s got access to everything in the lab anyway.”

“I was hoping you would–”

“I’m busy, Steve.” Tony wiped his hands on his pants and raised his eyebrows. “Banner is smarter than me anyway, he will find a fix faster than I can. Sorry, I just can’t right now. Sorry.”

“Uh, okay. I’ll just take him to Banner then.” Steve sent him an odd look, but turned and left anyway, and Tony sank down into a chair, sitting on his hands so it wasn’t quite as obvious they were shaking.
“Sorry, Clint, uh, you guys, I didn’t realize you were in here.” Tony did an abrupt about face and headed right back out of the room, and Clint raised his eyebrows.

“Tony. It’s not a problem.”

“I don’t want to intrude.” Tony held up his hands peacefully and Natasha narrowed her eyes at him.

“Since when do you care if you are intruding, just come in and sit down. It’s called a common area, Stark.”

“Lay off.” Sam sent her a sharp glance. “You don’t have to say everything like it’s an insult.”

“Excuse me?” Natasha’s voice rose the slightest bit and Tony coughed loudly.

“Hey, it’s all fine. Let’s not fight okay? No worries, no harm no foul. I know she doesn’t mean anything by it, it’s fine. All I needed was my tablet, it’s just there on the end table, I’ll just grab it.”

“Here, Tony.” Sam tossed it to him and Tony caught it, but just barely, bringing it down to his side before anyone noticed the slip.

“Ok. Ok thanks guys. See ya. Sorry again.” He turned and left, trying to slow his breathing down a little.

He hated when they fought.

Why do I hate Rhaegar Targaryen?

Why do I hate Rhaegar x Lyanna?!

Why do I dislike 90% of the Targaryens?

Let’s get this fuck started!

Lyanna x Rhaegar was not Romeo and Juliet, was not Bonnie and Clyde, it wasn’t even fucking TWILIGHT. It was an older married man manipulating a young teenage girl to running away with him, abandoning his wife and two children to his insane pyromaniac father and disrespecting/Creating an act of war to the Baratheon, Martell and Stark house.

You cannot just annul A marriage that was consummated and declare them bastards, no it does not work out like that by the rules of Westeros. Rhaegar’s marriage to Lyanna in the show is nothing but that, for show. The marriage is still illegitimate and on the topic of things illegitimate:


  • The Targaryen dynasty is over and dead, they have no right to the throne. And if you want to use the logic that they were Kings before, than everyone else should get the crowns back. The Starks were Kings before the Targaryens rolled into town, as were other families. So if The Targaryens deserve the throne because they were kings before, than so do the other houses.
  • Robert was King, and when he was King he made Ned Stark protector of the realm until his own son would come of age, but as we all know Robert had no legitimate children. So that means the crown goes one of two ways
  1. The crown gets passed down to one of his illegitimate children that would be legitimized. So in the books it would go to: Gendry Waters, or Mya Stone, or Edric Storm. while in the show: Gendry Waters. They are the only true blood of Robert’s left.
  2. It would go to one of the Starks: in theory since Ned Stark was technically King at that point, and if the realm would not recognize a bastard as king, then it would have to go to one of the Stark children when Ned passed. His only surviving legitimate children at this point in the show is Bran, Sansa and Arya, but Bran can’t have kids so the crown would have to go to Sansa. If Sansa passed on the crown, then it must go to Arya. Yes you may make your fan fictions off that.
  • Even if you want to ignore the fact that the Targaryens have no right to the Crown and ignore the fact that people were kings before them, Jon still has no right to the throne. Dany was the daughter to the last king, and her brother, Prince Rhaegar’s children are dead thanks to him and so is he. So at that moment Viserys was next in line and he made his heir in case he had no children, Dany.
  • A secret child born out of a secret marriage that went against all laws of the land, that was scribed by more than likely bias Septon, Who we all know can be corrupt, (Pycelle as one example) hidden in the North to the Lord of Winterfell under the title of his bastard , i’m pretty sure just by reading that alone no one would think he has a claim, which he doesn’t.

The Targaryens should not rule anything, they literally came over as conquerors and killed thousands, and threatening the land with pretty much the equivalent of nuclear bombs. If you would like an example: Picture Donald Trump and his children Taking over America and claiming themselves the kings and queens of that land and whoever fought against them would be blown the fuck up.

The Targaryens are The Pilgrims who took over the Native American lands, they are inbreeding imperialists, and yes, there was some good members of the family but holy shit their entire dynasty is built out of fear. Their house motto is:

Fire and Blood

Danny’s entire claim to the throne is wanting to claim the power and rights her family use to hold while denying the crimes they did, ignoring history, and refusing to acknowledge the rights and power that anyone else had besides her family.

Robert’s Rebellion was built on a lie


  • The Mad King killed Brandon Stark and Rickard Stark in cold blood.
  • The Mad King asked for the heads of Robert Baratheon and Eddard Stark
  • Jon Arryn raised the banners against The Mad King and to finally stop the madness.
  • D&D don’t know what continuity and Consistent writing means

Elia Martell

ELIA MARTEL WAS A PRINCESS OF DORNE, she was young herself and she almost died to give Prince fuck boy two kids back to bask even though everyone said it was bad for her health, not wanting to have the prophecy of the three headed dragon he was obsessed about not come true, he abounded his wife and went for the Young Lyanna Stark instead. I don’t want to hear any of that prophecy bullshit that the prince of douche bags. He was selfish and cruel. The least he could have done was help smuggle HIS WIFE and HIS CHILDREN away from his insane father.

No, Elia Martell was left as a political hostage, lived almost a year alone, mistreated, and eventually she would watch her children be brutally tortured and murdered in front of her eyes and then be Brutally raped by their murder and then murdered herself.

Elia Martell was raped and murdered because of the Targaryens.

Tywin gave the sentence, the Mountain swung the sword, but the Targaryens are the ones that put them in that situation.

In summary:

There should be no Targaryens restoration, no more silver haired Kings and Queens. No more blood and fire.

Give the rightful and deserving houses their crowns back and let them rule the realm in a democratic sense.

No more conquerors


Rhaegar loved Lyanna and she loved him

Well fuck me gently with a chainsaw, look at that! They even look alike and are framed to look alike.

Sansa “loved” Joffrey. He was the handsome crowned prince to his, in her opinion, unattractive father, he was kind, smart, heroic and would make an amazing king one day.

Who does that sound like?

Every single Rhaegar Stan in and out of Universe

Funny thing about looking at something out of context in history, you can mistake someone’s Wrong judgment of being young and impressionable as love.

Lyanna would not of been okay with Elia Martell and her children being disowned and abounded.

Lyanna would not of been okay with her father and brother being killed by a Mad King.

Lyanna would not of been okay being locked up in a tower in a strange land while thousands died because of her mistake and dying alone in a tower.

Lyanna was taken agaisnt her will and died ashamed, scared, and begging for forgiveness.

Fuck that noise of the Wolf and the Dragon

Ship Dany x Jon if you have to, but get that Rhaegar loved Lyanna and she loved him shit out my face and my dash.

PS: any of my followers who like Dany x Jon, please take none of this personal. I love all of you and know the difference between reality and fictional characters

Thoughts on the Ban...

For those that don’t follow the MTG side of things, this might not interest you as much: Long story short, some folks have been harassed, others have been banned because of it.

Now, I have been seeing the usual ‘they did nothing wrong’ posts here and on twitter. So I’m going to make things a touch more clear here:

Jeremy of MTGHeadquarters/unsleevedmedia/thequartering was hit with a perma-ban in all things Magic for harassment. This is very good news. For too long, his brand of garbage has been deeply rooted in just about every corner of really every fandom if we are honest. For Magic, this means LGS, Protour/grand prix, Twitch chats, Twitter, Amino, and here in our little corner of the net. He is one of many, but it’s a solid start. Wizards, as well as our community as a whole have put up with the garbage enough and it’s time for everyone to get with the program of ‘inclusivity’ or just get out. Getting a perma-ban is really the least that can happen to the sort of crass, garbage spewing, super negative, red-pill swallowing, alt-right/nazi sort that Jeremy is.

In short, good riddance.

As for Travis Woo. Even setting aside his ‘thought experiment’ about Hitler (please read as much sarcasm as you can into ‘thought experiment’), and even ignoring his racist slurs against Japanese people, and even accepting his word that he didn’t know what was going on in his little ‘Magic for Bad’ facebook group (which, seriously? You named it that, what did you freaking expect would happen?), there is an important fact that remains: He was creator and mod for that group, and as per his statements it was months ago the ‘First pick draft’ ladies thing happened. My dude? You are still responsible. You DO NOT turn of your alerts for a room you create/mod. That shows a lack of respect and an ignoring of responsibility. And on top of that, rather then deleting it, he just locked it.

Look, I get it in some cases, you are worried about these toxic people finding new homes… thing is, they will only learn (if ever) by being shunned for their actions. If every group does this, kicks out of or closes down ever room that these jerks are hanging out in, while informing them as to the why, even if they are thick, they are going to eventually start to think that maybe the problem is with them. Not all of them, mind, but more then you would expect would start to come around.

Some of these jerks are just brats that were never forced to grow up (ironic consider many of them think folks like us are the babies because we ‘can’t handle a few words’).

Leaving them to just fester without appropriate action can actually cause the issues to be come worse not better.

And the cherry on top was his active stating on twitter about ‘disavowing’ the actions of folks like Jeremy and his own facebook group. My dude, again: You DON’T GET THAT LUXURY. Your room, your responsibility. You accept responsibility, you accept the mistake you made, you make apologizes as appropriate, and you SHUT THE DANG THING DOWN. He did not do these things. Part of me feels like if it were just this one thing, that -maybe- a year ban is a bit much… But then you bring back in his history, and it almost doesn’t feel enough.

Be happy, Travis Woo, that you got just a year with option to appeal. Your history puts you into a precarious position

Four others tied to these issues were also banned for 4 months, but I have no further info on them, so not going to go on any longer on this part…


Now, all this said: Things everyone should take from this:

1) “They are just words” is not a justification. “Just a joke” isn’t a defense. And “They did nothing wrong” is just a flat out lie. As far as Jeremy alone goes, even if you discount the tweets in the Professor’s video, there where long enough clips of Jeremy’s actual voice and statements that a clear case can be made. If you honestly still think he did nothing wrong, then there is literally no convincing you and no point in continuing any conversation.

2) Creating a place the like of “Magic for bad”, even as a joke, has large potential for harm. If it was meant to be satire, remember that satire is not an easy thing. Far too often, even well meaning satire can be used very easily for awful. A satire, poorly aimed/understood is no different from the real thing. A room like Magic for Bad should have either been sharply modded or never created in the first place.

What we need is more places of honesty and respect rather then more places of sarcasm and “satire”. Sarcasm and satire only work in small doses, and are even harder to create and spread on the net due mostly in part to who many social media platforms are text based. Sarcasm especially can get lost without the right tone behind it. A place of honesty and respect will build a stronger, healthier community then one based on jokes that are assumed everyone understood (and that is giving benefit of the doubt that said ‘jokes’ are not just being an asshole and using a BS defense)

3) Putting an emphasis here: We, as a community, on tumblr, twitter, at your lgs, on twitch, at protours and grand prix, need to respect and hold each other accountable. To raise the standard and to continue make the world around us that much more welcoming.

We are all human. We are all deserving of at least the most basic of respects. And Magic, as a game and a culture, is not the property of one aspect of this community, but for the whole.


 If you feel the need to defend the named people above, or people like them; if you honestly think that the Prof’s vid didn’t have any evidence, if you think we are all ‘snowflakes’ or some garbage like that, and especially if you are some alt-right, red pill, nazi, unfollow me.

No, I’m not joking. I have zero time for you. This post is not a debate, it’s a statement of history and purpose going forward. We, as a community on tumblr and twitter, came together over the last week plus. Many of us declared a standard of respect and acceptance. We raised a banner around each other.

Tolerant of all but Intolerance.

A paradox, but one necessary for society to grow in a healthy, vibrant way. And Harassment is a form of intolerance. It’s someone saying ‘no, you don’t belong’. I’m sorry, no. People like Jeremy are like brats in a crib, crying that other kids are getting toys too. Stop being a brat. Share. Be welcoming or get out. That simple.

A cosplayer is doing something because of passion, because of love.
A spike can even show compassion for a timmy/tammy
White, Black, Yellow, Red, and any others, all are human
And let love be love, let people be who they are, even if it doesn’t make sense to you.

It’s that simple, and it’s not hard.

Notes: trigger warnings! Implications of sexual abuse, mentions of torture, swearing, injuries, memory loss, recuperating, fluff, angst, smut.

A/N: Part four! Bucky goes to see Banner and finds out more about his past with Y/N, while they find out about that something in his head. 

Oh, and things get sexy.

Banner is nice enough. He keeps calling me James, though, and it’s a little confusing. Everyone here keeps calling me Bucky, and getting used to that one name was tough enough as it is. Now that I remember.. some difficult times, it’s a little exhausting to remind myself to answer to ‘James’ as well.

But he’s nice and lets me know what everything he’s using is for, so I decide to keep my trap shut and just roll with it. They’re trying to help me, after all. See how long it’ll take before I regain all of my memories, and I can’t wait for that to finally fucking happen. 

A voice from the ceiling startles the living shit out of me when Doctor Banner asks some one called Friday what my brain-scan tells her.

Princess Argella Durrandon was the daughter and only child of Argilac the Arrogant, the last Storm King. After her father was killed in Aegon’s Conquest, she barred the gates of Storm’s End and declared herself Storm Queen. However, her garrison refused to share the fate of Harrenhal and revolted, raising a peace banner and delivering Argella to Orys Baratheon’s camp, gagged, chained, and naked. Orys, however, removed the chains with his own hands, wrapped his cloak around her, and gave her food and wine. He spoke to her gently, telling her of her father Argilac’s courage in death.
Aegon rewarded Orys Baratheon with Storm’s End, the rule of the Stormlands, and Argella. On his marriage to Argella Durrandon, and to honor Argilac’s valor, Orys Baratheon adopted the sigil and words of House Durrandon as his own.

Bucky x Reader

Modern day Hockey AU

SUMMARY: You are the daughter of one of the greatest hockey players to ever play the game, now as owner of the Avengers, he is bringing your childhood crush Bucky Barnes to the team.  The minute he sees you in your father’s office, you can tell by the smirk on his face he hadn’t forgot about your crush either.  This is going to be fun.

CTTH Masterlist

5 Months Later

“Ladies and gentleman, please direct your attention to the center of the arena, for the 2017 Stanley Cup champion banner raising!”  

You watched as your father walked the red carpet that had been placed from the locker room leading onto the ice at the center of the rink.  He looks up towards you giving you a wave.  You knew he was beyond happy.

The boys had fought hard throughout the playoffs and even though Bucky had been done for the season he was still very much part of the team.  Your father had put him in the coaches box that sat to the side of his box.  Bucky was the Avenger’s eye in the sky.  He spent all the games leading up to the playoffs watching and helping refine plays, even helping coach.  

You father knew it was pointless to keep him from the game, the only thing he wanted more than playing hockey was you.   The two of you had become even more inseparable. Not only did you drive to the arena together, but had also moved into a new apartment together.  Bucky had assumed when he asked you to be his nurse in the hospital it meant you would move to his apartment.   You assumed that after you were done nursing him back to being healthy, he would move in with you.

After a large argument that ended with pizza and cake pops, the two of you started looking for a new apartment to buy together.
