significant ideas

My ideal coming out scene for Steve

Avengers are flying out on a mission, steve and Bucky are jumping out first to scout the area bc they are Sneaky Super Soldiers. They approach the jump zone and steve says something like “stay safe Buck, I’ve got your back” or some corny shit.

Bucky turns from the open door and uses his metal hand to pull steve into a gentle but insistent kiss before running to dive out of the plane. All without changing his expression from winter-soldier determined because he is a fucking bad ass.

Now we have the endless possibilities of team reactions. I give you Thor, looking joyfully clueless as always; happy for his friends and their Warrior Embrace without any idea something significant just happened. Natasha, with a knowing, I-knew-it smirk. Sam nodding to himself like alright, that’s cool, shoulda seen that coming. Clint and Wanda with equally shocked I thought we were the only ones with secret relationships faces. Vision and Banner looking perplexed and impressed respectively with the unpredictability of humans. T'Challa not giving a shit because he already knew - hello he was there for Bucky being re-frozen and asking for steve every time he was thawed.

A dumbfounded Tony just sputters, standing up before steve can follow.

“B-but I thought you had that long-lost love affair with Peggy!”

Steve’s face softens. “She’ll always be my girl.”

Tony’s still confused. “What about that-uh Sharon chick?”

Steve shrugs indifferently. “She was cute.”

“I don’t-”

“It’s called being bisexual,” Steve interrupts with a grin. “Look it up, you can google it now.”

And that little rascal, proud as FUCK for understanding how google works now, gives his team a sassy salute before flipping out of the plane after his boyfriend.

date idea: snuggling in bed listening to new artists on spotify and making a playlist of your favs so you can re-listen later.

i really hope that there are no redemption arcs in the star wars sequel trilogy, period. they feel outdated; like, it fit the late ‘70s and early ‘80s in part because it was very fresh storytelling at the time (esp in genre fiction) and in part because of the culture of the era

but tfa was very updated for the late 2010s, even if the basic story arc was still the monomyth (which doesn’t prescribe redemption or forgiveness or w/e anyway so it’s not A Given Just Because It’s Star Wars)

what would be fresh and culturally relevant storytelling today would be accountability arcs

I’m totally open to Rey and Finn and Poe d fucking up and having to be accountable and fix their own mistakes. I’m totally open to Luke and Han and Leia being acknowledged to have made mistakes in creating the New Republic and the new Jedi and being held accountable to fix them. but the difference is… no one ever held Vader accountable. that’s why i don’t believe he was redeemed, too, bc he got the easy way out of his massive bad choices. he just did one semi-decent thing and immediately died. neither he nor palpatine was ever held accountable for what they did.

i think it’s time to leave the idea of absolution or redemption or forgiveness being some kind of inherent rights to feel as outdated as the rest of 1977’s cultural landscape. that shit has to be earned through hard fucking work on yourself and accountability. just saying you’re sorry and doing nothing to change your behavior bc you conveniently immediately die means nothing tbh

i want to see Kylo Ren’s punishments fit his crimes. i don’t want anyone to forgive him just because he asks for it. I’m about accountability arcs. i want him to have to truly, truly face what he’s done and i want his victims to have the latitude to choose not to forgive him, even if he does get held accountable by some higher authority I’m the story. his victims owe him nothing and never will.

our culture right now needs to make accountability the priority of the decade in fucking general. that includes in our stories. i don’t think you can really call any idea a significant part of a culture until it’s embedded in its stories.

Characters I’d like to see return in Dragon Age 4

I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and I’ve made a list of characters I’d like to see make a return in a future Dragon Age title. These choices below are not made due to popularity per say, but by how much logical sense it would make given the idea of significant parts of the game taking place in Tevinter, The Grey Warden Fortress, and in the Crossroads (or some place involving the Dread Wolf). There’s also the tricky conundrum of mortality in question for some of these characters, as some could possibly be dead in previous games.

COMPANIONS:

Dorian Pavus - Let’s start with the obvious one and say “The Good Tevinter” is a must have. Being from Tevinter himself, Dorian has the opportunity to be the Cassandra Pentaghast of the new game. And let’s be honest, we all need a little more Dorian in our lives.

Scout Harding - Now, this one is a little bit of me contradicting myself when I said “I chose for logical reasons”, but at the same time it’s not completely illogical to have Scout Lace Harding as a companion. She is, after all, Leliana’s head scout. Plus I SUPER want a full romance option with Harding.

Krem - Another character who hails from Tevinter, it’d be interesting to see Krem go back to his homeland and face his past. This one might be a little bit tricky to include since it’s technically possible for him to die in Inquisition.

Fenris - Do I even need to explain? He’s another beloved character with a strong connection to Tevinter, but unlike Dorian and Krem, Fenris has experienced the slavery side of the land. It’d be interesting to see him going back for revenge, and it would even be a fantastic character quest for him.

Tallis - Another elf with a tragic past in Tevinter, Tallis was sold into slavery by her own parents before being rescued by the Qunari and converted to the Qun. Tallis had such a brief appearance in Dragon Age II’s Mark of the Assassin, it’d be great to see her back in action. Plus since it’s pretty heavily implied that Tevinter and the Qunari are at war, it’d make sense that Tallis would find a way right into the middle of the mess.

ADVISORS:

The Inquisitor - Since it looks like we’ll still be following the Inquisition, and since the Inquisitor was (SPOILER ALERT) bereft of their left forearm, it’d make sense to have them act as a war advisor, same way Leliana, Cullen, and Josephine did in the last game. She’s determined to get the help she needs to take down the Dread Wolf.

The Hero of Ferelden/ The Warden Commander - While it’s tricky to include characters like Fenris and Krem, both of whom could possibly be dead, including The Warden from the first game would be extremely complicated. That’s why I throw in the option of the Warden Commander you could create in Dragon Age: Awakening as an alternative if your Warden made the final sacrifice in Origins. But let’s be honest, Hawke came back in Inquisition but all we get in Inquisition from the Hero are a couple of people who talk about them and a letter. The epilogue of Inquisition also heavily hints at something happening to the Wardens of Weisaupt, so it’d be cool to see the Hero back to save the day. 

Again.

Leliana - She’s been in every Dragon Age game so far and I’d hate to break her streak.

The Champion of Kirkwall - Because Hawke. There are two reasons I’d like to see Hawke back in Dragon Age 4, one of which I’ll explain below with the next character, but the other reason is this: There’s something going on with the Wardens and after their involvement in Dragon Age Inquisition (and with the option their sibling could be a Warden), Hawke could be an advocate for solving the Warden’s problem, maybe even be the one who contacts the Hero of Fereldan for help.

OTHERS:

Merrill - What with the whole Dread Wolf situation going on and Merrill’s obsession with restoring elven culture, it would make perfect sense to have Merrill to become involved. I think it’d be extremely interesting if she actually joins Solas and becomes a misguided villain, and one of the gut-wrenching choices you have to make in the third act of the game determines whether or not you (and Hawke) can save Merrill. (PLUS YOU DO REALIZE MERRILL’S ELUVIAN CAN ACTUALLY BE SEEN IN THE CROSSROADS WHEN MORRIGAN TAKES THE INQUISITOR THERE SO SHE ACTUALLY DOES GET IT WORKING)

Feynriel - The elf child you save in Dragon Age II from slavery would also make a great character to bring back. When you rescue him from the fade, you have the option to let him live, and he will then seek help in Tevinter. It’d be nice to catch up with him again.

Grey Warden Bethany/Caver Hawke - However the Wardens are involved, there’s an opportunity for the Warden sibling to come back. Maybe the Warden’s problem could be the climax of act II, and here it could foreshadow the choice you have to make to save Merrill by having Hawke and the new protagonist trying to save Bethany/Carver.

Grey Warden Oghren - He’s been out of the picture since Awakening when he became a Warden. I always thought maybe Ogrhen stayed with the Hero of Ferelden as they adventured to find a cure for the calling.

Solas - Yeah no explanation needed. He’ll be in the next game.

Satirical horror story where somehow instead of like, having a creepy atmosphere and trying to convince you that everything going on is far outside of what you’re prepared for and you should be afraid cause in this circumstance any living human being would

the narrator is just this terrible terrible human being from the dark corners of Reddit and keeps trying to insist that the protagonist should have been perfectly okay with all the terrible gruesome shit that was happening if he was really a man, the frail lacey-faced little fuck, what are him and his offspring doing on this planet anyway if they can’t handle a little Test

By the end of the story everything is so fucked up that anyone with a brain can tell the narrator is a horrible person but the narrator is still off in troll land trying to come up with reasons that this terrible ending is okay/didn’t matter
