Thomas.” A boy at the war front. Another Red lost to a useless war. My first real friend, Maven told me once. I realize now the spaces between the words. The things unsaid. He loved that boy as he claims to love me.
Hello!, Could u write some headcanons about overprotective demon kings??
• he’s overprotective in the most polite way he can be
• he definitely has a fierce side to him but….. he’s gotta keep up a good rep since he’s a demon king and all
• plus he’s the true cross president
• he’ll have a nice… “chat” with whoever it is that’s threatening your safety
• If that doesn’t work out in his favor he’ll resort to physical assault
• do not tempt this man
• doesn’t try to talk his way through things
• very impulsive when it comes to violence
• if someone is putting your safety even slightly at risk he will immediately jump onto whoever it is and just destroy them
• he’ll control himself though if you ask him to
• otherwise rip the person he’s choking
• everyone knows that he can destroy someone in like .25 seconds
• even though his body is like super fragile
• he can still kill someone if he needed or wanted to (example: gedoin)
• though he’s a lot more civil and would prefer to talk his way through things
• if that doesn’t work he’s basically like mephisto, only more serious lol
• basically rip anyone who gets on his bad side
• values you highly and won’t stand for anyone or anything that might potentially harm you
Last week, in Portland, Oregon, a man with a history of white supremacist rhetoric allegedly killed two men and injured one other who had tried to stop his harassment of two young women—one black, the other wearing a hijab. A week earlier, in College Park, Maryland, another young man—active in white supremacist Facebook groups—killed a black college student after confronting him on the street, according to police. In March, a white supremacist reportedly traveled from Baltimore to New York City with the express purpose of killing a black man, which he did, before turning himself into police. Earlier that month, a Sikh man was shot and injured in front of his house in a Seattle suburb. His alleged attacker reportedly shouted “go back to your country.” Days earlier, in Kansas, authorities described how a man walked into a bar and shot three men, including two immigrants from India, after shouting “get out of my country” and yelling racial slurs. One of the Indian men, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, died of his wounds. More recently, a California man was alleged to have stabbed a black man with a machete after yelling racial slurs—he’s facing charges—and a Native American man was run down and killed by an assailant who allegedly shouted racial slurs.
These events are not isolated. They represent a growing tide of intolerance in the United States, fanned by the presidential election and embodied by the sitting president. At the same time, they—and the larger forces they represent—aren’t novel. The rise of racist reaction in politics almost always brings a similar rise of racist violence in civil society. For as much as the current period feels new, we are living through an old, and very American, cycle of behavior.
Nationally, white supremacist and white nationalist activity is on the rise, from more aggressive recruiting online, to active organizing and intimidation on college campuses. Law enforcement officials in cities such as New York have seen a surge in reported hate crimes, and the Southern Poverty Law Center reports an increase in the number of hate groups. All of this takes place against a backdrop of political intolerance. Donald Trump ran for president on a platform of ethno-nationalism, offering interested white voters a chance to express and vote their resentments against Hispanic immigrants, Muslim Americans, and groups like Black Lives Matter. His campaign brought explicitly racist groups, individuals, and institutions into the mainstream, from Steve Bannon—who rode the success of his hate-fueled site Breitbart to a position as a top adviser in the Trump White House—to formerly fringe figures like Iowa Rep. Steve King, who routinely traffics in white nationalist rhetoric.
i must be new here but whats wrong with hickmans avengers?
ooooooh it depends on what you read about it and which post you’re referring to if you mean something i specifically said.
hickmanvengers –– fandom portmanteau for simplicity’s sake –– is like what man of steel was to the DCU. started out with good intentions, aesthetically gorgeous, but ultimately colorless, gruesome and full of unnecessary casualties.
[ N.B. in case anyone has only recently stumbled across this blog / comics / ‘hickman’ this discussion (i use that term v. loosely lmao) refers to the latest run of avengers comics before the secret wars event and before the current avengers run of all-new marvel i.e. avengers vol. 5(2013-15) and new avengers vol. 3 (2013-15). both ended earlier this year in june.]
