So obviously the clothes Bucky’s wearing in Civil War definitely aren’t his Winter Soldier “uniform” and I doubt he waited till he got to Romania to buy those, which means that shortly after the end of Winter Soldier, unlessHYDRA somehow kept civilian clothes in his size on hand and he knew where they were (ya know, the boring option), either:
1) some poor body builder got mugged in an alley by the actual Winter Soldier
2) the world’s most wanted assassin walked into a clothing store in his full leather getup, a wad of “stolen” HYDRA cash clutched in his metal hand, and bought himself a pair of jeans and a couple of t-shirts
He was quiet for a moment, letting him bask in the weird blend of terror and happiness that’d leeched into his chest, the fluttery rush that felt like accepting his job as a Camp Campbell counselor, or graduating high school. That mix of “I never thought I’d be here” and “so what now?” — and goodness, he’d really never thought he’d be here.
On the floor of his girlfriend’s kitchen. The girlfriend he was in love with.
The girlfriend who scared the living heck out of him.
Maybe a little less than a year ago, I got a message from someone asking if I would beta their Gwenvid fic. I don’t usually do stuff like that, but I was also content-starved and thought “You know what? Why not.”
and it turned out to be /really/ good
Anyways, thanks for being so cool and encouraging and for letting me ramble about things fandom and otherwise, you’re amazing and talented and I’m so honored to be involved in anything you do
forestwater87, Happy Birthday, and I wish you many birthday wishes and an accomplished and blessed year, this year and for many more to come! ♥♥♥
I recently bought this new gold pen from a book store, and it works so well. Its very pigment and really lets out the color. LOVE IT 10/10~ I actually wanted to try attempting drawing Messier 87 (galaxy) but i used green rather than blue asfghdjfkahvsdbj
so people headcanon THB (and all the characters) all kinds of ways. I love it! I love the variety. most of it is real good shit.
but here’s a thing I’ve noticed
if we made the Average Headcanon THB, it would look something like this:
Merle: stocky. short. white. grey hair. braids of some kind, usually around the beard. flowers incorporated. glasses. questionable fashion sense. his look is pretty standard.
Taako: average-thin. tall. white. wavy blonde hair. hat, umbra staff, often depicted wearing skirts, crop tops, otherwise stereotypically “feminine” clothing. his look varies the most out of any of the boys. this is what MOST of them look like though.
Magnus: very bulky and muscular. tall. not white. short auburn hair, sideburns, no beard. a few scars. usually shown with his weapons, and wearing armor.
are y'all uh… noticing this?
do you see what I see?
because I see a lot of non-white Merles and Taakos. good shit, OPs. but in any given fanart, if ALL OTHER CHARACTERS are depicted as white, Magnus Burnsides is the one most likely to be depicted as a person of color. if a TAZ fan headcanons any single character as not being white, it’s GOING to be Magnus.
and I feel honestly kiiiiinda weird about that.
not because it’s bad to see Magnus as not being a white guy. I don’t think that’s the case at all. I don’t picture him as a white dude tbh. In my head he looks pretty darn Southeast Asian actually.
but because he’s the muscle. he’s the brute. he’s the intimidating one. the brash one. the one that can crush most people he encounters with his bare fists.
yeah, personality wise, he’s a sweetheart most of the time. he’s got depth. he’s got dimension. his life’s dream is to have a dog on the moon. but he’s also very quick to attack. he’s the least afraid of violence, the most inclined to physical labor, and generally seen as kind of the dumbest member of the party.
I just… I REALLY want y'all fellow white people to think about your headcanons… especially if you see Merle and Taako as being white… especially if you see Magnus as being black, tbh,,, ask yourself why?? ask yourself if you’re okay with saying the big dumb hard laboring brute is also the only non-white main character?
if any taz fans that aren’t white see this post and have any opinions on it, I’d love to hear them. I may be totally wrong. I may be looking at this through my own racially biased lenses. I just… personally, this trend really rubs me the wrong way. just. please check yourselves, guys. think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it? that’s all I guess
