“By this invention every live part of Mother Earth’s body would be brought into action. Energy will be collected all over the globe in amounts small or large, as it may exist, ranging from a fraction of one to a few horse power or more. Every waterfall can be utilized, every coal field made to produce energy to be transmitted to vast distances, and every place on earth can have power at small cost. One of the minor uses might be the illumination of isolated homes. We could light houses all over the country by means of vacuum tubes operated by high frequency currents. We could keep the clocks of the United States going and give every one exact time; we could turn factories, machine shops and mills, small or large, anywhere, and I believe could also navigate the air.

“One of the most important features of this invention will be the transmission of intelligence. It will convert the entire earth into a huge brain, capable of responding in every one of its parts. By the employment of a number of plants, each of which can transmit signals to all parts of the world, the news of the globe will be flashed to all points. A cheap and simple receiving device, which might be carried in one’s pocket, can be set up anywhere on sea or land, and it will record the world’s news as it occurs, or take such special messages as are intended for it. If you are in the heart of the Sahara your wife can telegraph you from Washington, and if the instrument is properly made you alone will get the message. A single plant of a few horse power could operate hundreds of such instruments, so that the invention has an infinite working capacity and will cheapen the transmission of all kinds of intelligence.”

I miss her Part [4/...]

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x reader
Words: 951
Warning: none. Just a cute old Bucky coming up!

Summary: Bucky and [Y/N] found themselves in the 21st century, the only problem - [Y/N] doesn’t know that Bucky is still alive and that he tries to find a way to get back into her life.

Masterlist

I know that Bucky speaks Romanian in the movie but I didn’t want to use google translate for it…but maybe someone of my readers can help me out!


He started the day like all the others since he moved away from America. Really early in the morning, he would stand up and take a shower before he would make himself some breakfast when he had enough at home to make some.

Romania was a place where no one would suspect Bucky to be, at least he thought so. But he didn’t know about Tony and his smart computer system Friday which gave [Y/N] enough locations to look for Bucky. She got Odessa in America, Bogota in Colombia and Bucharest in Romania. [Y/N] hoped that maybe she could find Bucky somewhere near the cities.

Today was market day, so he decided to visit the busy streets of Romania even if it made him some kind of uncomfortable. Still he overcame his fear and went to the market.

“Do you want some of these?” the seller pointed to the plums that where laying out in the little booth in front of the former soldier. He looked up to the seller and nodded shortly “Yes, I take…six of them, please”

The seller took one of the plastic bags and put the few plums in it after Bucky gave him his money and waved good-bye with a short smile.

Walking down the busy streets of Romania, he often noticed some police cars racing down the street. Every time it happened he held his breath for a few seconds before the car passed away. It was an old reflex which he could never get rid off. Sighing, the former Winter Soldier walked through the people that were also visiting the market.

Living in Romania was not the best option, but for Bucky it was enough. Here, no one gave him a second look or even recognized him once. He knew that he would be safe here. But still he missed America. It was his home and the home of the person Bucky missed the most.

After watching [Y/N] for almost five months, Bucky decided to leave her and her new founded life behind because he thought her life would be better without him in it. Oh, if he only knew…

Suddenly he heard a voice calling out which brought him out of his thoughts “Be careful!”
He stopped and saw a woman right on the other side of the street. Her gaze was fixed on Bucky which made him a little bit uncomfortable. Before Bucky could say anything to her, he noticed a little boy right next to him.

He was holding a teddy bear in his right hand and a little plastic bag in the other. Desperate, the little boy looked for a way to cross the street without getting hit by the cars that were racing down the streets. For a short moment, his gaze went up to Bucky who gave him a smile before he called out to the boy’s mother “Wait over there!”
Smiling, the soldier knelt in front of the little boy “Is that your mother over there?”

The little boy was a bit shy and hold onto his teddy a little bit more before he gave him a quick nod.

“My name is James. Do you wanna tell me your name?” he smiled at the little boy before he got the courage and gave him a small smile “I’m Relu…”
“Relu..that’s a great name. You have to help me. I want to bring you and your little friend over here” he pointed to his teddy bear which he held tight “to your mother. You have to hold my hand, so I won’t lose you” Bucky winked at him.

Now Relu was more confident than before and gave him bright smile before he took Bucky’s hand without even asking why he wore a glove because it was mid-summer season. Smiling, Bucky gave his little hand a light squeeze before he looked out to see when it would be the best time to cross the street.

Only a few seconds later, James pulled him with him over the street to Relu’s mother who took her son in her arms. Softly she kissed his head and smiled at Bucky before she set Relu down and thanked him “Thank you so much. It’s very dangerous to cross these streets alone. I thought he was right behind me”

“No problem, ma'am. I like to help whenever I can” Bucky smiled at her and winked at Relu who hold onto his mother’s hand before he giggled.

“Don’t you wanna thank him for helping you over the street?” the mother smiled at her little boy as Relu gave Bucky a kind smile “Thank you, James”

So they said good-bye and left for their home just like Bucky did. He smiled to himself and made his way back to his little apartment which was not that far away from the center of the city. The district where he lived was not the best place to live but it didn’t matter. He was happy that he got the flat without much effort. The little skyscraper was full of little families and workers who couldn’t afford that much.

Walking up the stairs, he thought about his old apartment in Brooklyn in the 40s. He had lived there together with his little sister Rebecca who was five years younger than him. They stayed together until Bucky left for war. But it also made him sad that his sister and the rest of his family was already dead.

He fished the keys from his pockets and opened the front door.

But he froze mid-way in the apartment when he saw [Y/N] sitting on the mattress on the ground.

Their gazes met instantly when she gave him a weak smile “Hey…”

So, this is a thing. There’s so many Treehouses for KND operatives in the world that literally nobody but the Global Supreme Commander knows how many.

Can you just… imagine? For a second? When Chad just turned ‘traitor’ and left the KND- he had to have left it in disarray. They couldn’t trust any of the information he left behind; he was smart enough to rig the system, he’s smart enough to debilitate it with false info.

So the new Global Supreme Commander (I assume all of Chad’s closest colleagues got cleaned out after he left) has to count them all over again

Wading through all those reports, waiting for late senders, tracking down the Treehouses that aren’t in current use (some have to be for emergencies, am I right?) and ones that were too lazy to send anything out, triple tallying it all by themselves… Yeesh. I would not want their job.

2.3.15 // 12:17 PM

I am so unbelievably exhausted from this weekend; I went home from school (a 3.5 hour venture) to get there safely before the unforgiving winter storm. Monday morning all schools within a hundred-mile radius were closed, but we still managed to arrive to my 8 AM neurologist appointment. I’ve got to schedule my MRI, EEG, RA, and blood work soon (as well as my hip MRI, CT, and surgery… oops). the neurologist confirmed my trigeminal neuralgia, which is kind of scary because he said it is sometimes indicative of MS… :( anyway, my mommy was kind enough to drive me all the way back to school! my medicines I picked up though are really making me sleepy, making it incredibly hard to function for a full day…

I’m continuing to study for my anatomy exam on Thursday. current setup: 

  • 13” MacBook Pro, complete with a marble case and mortar & pestle sticker monogrammed with my (grad) school colors.
  • iPad mini with a Bluetooth keyboard (I’m sorry I don’t know the brand, my sister was nice enough to let me borrow it). 
  • Jawbone UP band currently charging so it can fully prepare for all of the fantastic activities I have planned for this week. 
  • Victoria Secret PINK backpack. 
  • Vela Spiral Notebook. 
  • A pretty cool folder I found at Walmart. 
  • Vander’s Human Anatomy & Physiology, 13th Edition + McGraw Hill LearnSmart. 
  • Forever 21 pencil case holding Stabilo pens as well as some Target Dollar Section items. 
  • Blueberries from Meijer that are about to go bad. 
  • Cactus, Aloe, and unknown plant. 
  • Wood dining table which is way more exciting than any of you are aware! I finally got a table into my apartment yesterday after not having a dining table for 10 months!! 
  • Arctic Monkeys Pandora station playing from the TV.

So there are students taking “smart pills” so that they can stay up late and revise and the government are doing an inquest into the effects of the pills. I think really what they need to do an inquest into, is the education system they have. The education system that would have students rather take pills that puts them in mental and physical harm, than risk failing an exam, because this society puts good grades above everything else, and we get told that failing an exam is basically going to stop us getting any further in life. Because that’s fucked up.

The XV104 ‘Riptide’ is a type of heavy Tau Battlesuit.

The pinnacle of Earth Caste battlesuit development, it stands twice the size of the XV8 Crisis Suit series. However, it nonetheless is an extremely agile and fast suit, being easily capable of outmaneuvering more crude Imperial walkers. Riptides are most commonly armed with a Heavy Burst Cannon or Ion Accelerator as well as Riptide Shield Generators, twin Smart Missile Systems, and twin Fusion Blasters or Plasma Rifles, giving firepower and protection to compliment their agility. The Riptide draws power from two primary energy sources. The first, the Fusion Reactor, is the standard and more reliable method of energy. However the Riptide is also equipped with a Nova Reactor, an experimental dark matter energy source that is only activated should the Riptide’s Shas'vre pilot require a burst of extra power. It proves itself as not much reliable but very powerful reactor, completely eclipse the past failures, when early protoypes of Riptides without nova reactors were too ponderous machines or else dangerously unstable.

The XV104 was first unleashed during the Third Sphere of Expansion at the Battle of Mu'gulath Bay. There, thanks to their maneuverability, advanced weaponry, and armor, the newly deployed Riptides were effective in countering cumbersome Imperial heavy tanks and static entrenched positions. However production of the Riptide has proven slow - the materials for the dense nanocrystaline alloy armor are difficult to obtain and the sheer volume required ensures that the XV104 is a rare commodity. As a result, only experienced XV8 Bodyguards are granted the high honor of piloting a Riptide.

Louis is smart, don’t forget it

I’m starting to get really, truly, genuinely offended by the way larry theories ignore how smart Louis really is, and instead casts him in the role of the poor oppressed prince fighting for his love. I see a different story with Louis, and in this case, he is the master of his own position in the industry: 

Let’s start all the way back with the “I met Harry in the toilet” story. Fandom narrative is: it’s true love instantly. Hi/Oops, all of that. Instead, lets look at this from the perspective of Louis, who is young, and who wants to break into the industry. He said ages ago that he knew Harry was going to be a star, so he asked for his autograph and got a picture. (Some of this story could be complete bullshit, I don’t think I’ve ever seen the video/audio where he said this, but let’s assume this is true. It works in his favor either way.) This is supposedly at the Manchester arena auditions. 

I have no reason to think otherwise – X Factor is a lot more complicated bts than they make it look on TV. The genuine singers go through at least two auditions with various producers before they get the invite to get on stage in front of the judges. This is Harry’s audition process - the real ground up story. Liam the first time, Niall probably, and Zayn. Louis, on the other hand, is a different story. In addition to holding pure voice auditions, they look for “characters”. X factor is a singing competition but it’s also a TV show and the producers need things to get people interested and talking, so they look for people with stand out personalities. Some of these people who can’t sing, or cant’ sing as well get plucked out from the regional auditions (if they’re there in the first place, I believe they do straight up casting calls with talent agents too) and get a guaranteed through-spot in order to build a television narrative out of it. If you were watching this year (2015), think Bupsi. Decent voice, huge personality, made it through to live shows at the expense of several people who had much better singing voices. This is Louis’ way in: we’ve all seen his stage audition with the judges and it wasn’t great, certainly not as good as other people that year. Or even as smooth as the other boys that year. So with this in mind, Louis makes it through to Bootcamp, and pours everything he has into making himself stand out as a personality as well as with his voice. (think of that clip of Zayn talking about how he can’t dance, and Louis behind him dancing with no inhibitions, nothing holding him back. He is laying it all on the line because he has no more guaranteed advancement, he’s all on his own. 

Then, he scrapes through, not as a solo artist but as part of a band of boys that he’s seen outpace him in the singing all weekend. He got through as a character, he’s going to be a character. We see this all the way through X Factor. From the way he’s introduced to the audience with the stingray sting, to the way he runs the fake game shows, sits front and center in most of the stair videos. And here’s the thing: he’s in a band with this boy he met at the manchester auditions, a boy who he believed has star power. So what does Louis do? He hitches himself to this curly-haired kid. I do think they were genuinely friends as well, but at the same time, Louis is trying to make himself memorable to make up for his singing. (it doesn’t matter what you think of his voice: he didn’t think he had a great voice, he’s talked about it a lot before. So he made up for it in personality.) 

And you know what? it worked. People loved the band. People loved Louis, people loved his friendships with the other boys, and people especially loved his friendship with Harry. 

Louis met this kid in a toilet, landed in a band with him, and turned that into roaring success. 

So, they kept it going. In the beginning “Larry Stylinson” was a fun thing. The band members used the portmanteau, it was a cute bromance, and everyone wanted in on it. they sat next to each other, they did interviews together, they lived together. There were articles, fun games, lots of jokes and innuendo. It worked beyond Louis’ wildest hopes. 

Until it didn’t work anymore – things turned from fun bromance into belief in a relationship. I think the transition started when they came to America (because we have weird ideas about touch that stem from our puritan roots as a country, but that’s a whole other long post), and it followed them everywhere else. What was fun, what raised Louis’ profile into one of the top two members of the band turned into something ugly when his girlfriend got harassed, when his family got harassed, when his friend, Harry Styles got harassed. 

For this next bit I’m going to assume that Louis still isn’t totally confident in his voice and in his potential post-1D career as a solo artist. 

So, instead of continuing on the path he was on, and working to be a memorable member of the band, he turned instead to working behind the scenes: to handling the business of 1D, the songwriting, the producing. Eventually branching out into talent spotting and development. Louis starts going back to X Factor more to mentor new acts. He allies himself with Simon (who IS a snake, there’s no denying that, but an incredibly successful one), who starts teaching him the ropes. 

Simon gets something out of this too. His empire is on the downslide. X Factor ratings are slipping, American Idol is slipping, X Factor american never really took off, his acts aren’t performing well save a small few (1D, Olly Murs. Little Mix are doing okay but nowhere near their potential, but then he’s never put much effort into them anyway.) And here’s Louis, this smart young man now in his 20s. Louis is looking to set himself up for a more stable career than that of performer, and Simon wants an injection of young talent and image into his empire. It works for both of them. Louis does more behind the scenes work for a few years, meets people, learns more about the business, then when he knows he has time to put into these things gets his label, his girl band. He’s actively working at a future as a music exec. He needs Simon’s favor, not to fight him, and since he’s not the horribly oppressed magic bean in love with his bandmate, why does he need to? 

The music business is full of dirty tactics. I spoke to an entertainment attorney a few weeks ago about career things, she flat out told me that she avoids music as much as she can because the industry is stuffed full of seedy people. But here’s the thing about Louis: he’s using it to his advantage, as always. He sees an opportunity with Simon. Maybe he’ll take over Syco when Simon retires or dies. Simon wants this, he wants to secure his own legacy in the business instead of going down with an aging empire. It’s mutually beneficial for them to be working together right now. 

This isn’t to say that Louis is going to end up being Simon 2.0; that also discounts how smart he is, if he’s going to just allow himself to be remade in Simon’s image. But he’s incredibly smart; he sees the opportunity to move up in the industry, to be a more stable part of it, to build a future for himself and for his family. For his kids. Freddie and any kids he may have later. It’s hard being a performer, very few can strike big and stay there forever. Bands come and go, singers come and go. The club of music execs and label heads is small and shrinking all the time as the Big Labels eat up independent ones. Louis is angling himself to be at the top of that pyramid. 

And here’s the thing about Bigwig Music Exec Louis Tomlinson: he knows what it’s like on the other side. Because he was there: he was a kid from a poorer background with no connections. He was in the X Factor contract which is incredibly exploitive in terms of what the band puts in and what they get out of it. (they’re a billion-dollar boyband. Individually they’ve seen a tiny fraction of the money they’ve brought in for the labels and promoters.) I want him to use that experience in the future. With his own label, with this new girlband he’s working with.

To say he’s just this guy who is blindingly in love and fighting to come out from under Evil Simon Cowell’s thumb completely ignores that he’s been working for years to put himself exactly where he is right now. That he’s been playing the game and playing it well

Louis is exactly where he wants to be. 

And I hope in 30 years we see Louis Tomlinson getting piles of lifetime achievement awards.
