the secret government

Honestly the funniest thing about Stranger Things is that this Top Secret Government Funded Science Group built a huge sensory deprivation tank in a specialized room and spent probably thousands of dollars on all the equipment for El’s powers and then 3 kids build one out of a kiddie pool in their school gym and it works better than ever lol

anonymous asked:

Does Steve ever yell at YOU about not taking risks?

friday has politely provided an audio transcript, since i felt it would be the most effective way to answer this question.

S: Bucky, I can’t believe you went after that giant squid alone like that! You could’ve died!

B: Wouldn’t be the first time–

S: How could you be so reckless?!

B; –probably wouldn’t be the last. I’m just following your fine example, Stevie. 

S: I’m being serious, Buck! I can’t believe you did that!

B: And I couldn’t believe you were dumb enough to go after that MegaSharkaphant on your own in central park last week, but you did!

S: You and the chainsaw-hands robot! Two weeks ago!

B: That was last month, Mr. I-Can-Handle-This-Alien-Bugdog-Swarm-On-My-Own, and I had backup!

S: Then the time with the sorcerer and the statue of President Washington!

B: Fine! Then the SIXTEEN ORANGE KNITWEAR MONSTERS!!

S: YOU SWORE YOU’D NEVER BRING UP THE SIXTEEN ORANGE KNITWEAR MONSTERS

honestly I can’t believe the writers of this show think their audience is so fucking stupid like I’m supposed to believe that an ENTIRE SECRET GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION THAT INCLUDES ONE MEMBER WHO CAN READ MINDS FOR FUCK SAKES IS DUMB ENOUGH NOT TO NOTICE JEREMIAH WAS A FUCKING CYBORG LIKE DID YOU TAKE AN X-RAY??? but fucking frat boy Mon-El is smart enough to figure out he’s not to be trusted in .6 seconds that’s what I’m supposed to believe? this is like a couple episodes ago with Maggie and the missing people and Winn finding a link in 5 seconds but 100x worse like sorry I’m not gonna let myself be disrespected like that Glee wouldn’t even to that to me… bye

The system will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling - their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability.

Remember this: We may be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them.

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.

My mother tells me
that when I meet someone I like,
I have to ask them three questions:

1. what are you afraid of?
2. do you like dogs?
3. what do you do when it rains?

of those three, she says the first one is the most important.
“They gotta be scared of something, baby. Everybody is. If they aren’t
afraid of anything, then they don’t believe in anything, either.”

I met you on a Sunday, right
after church.
one look and my heart fell into
my stomach like a trap door.

on our second date,
I asked you what you were afraid of.
“spiders, mostly. being alone. little children, like, the ones who just
learned how to push a kid over on the playground. oh and space. holy shit, space.”
I asked you if you liked dogs.
“I have three.”
I asked you what you do when it rains.
“sleep, mostly. sometimes I sit at the window and watch the rain
droplets race. I make a shelter out of plastic in my backyard for all the stray animals; leave them food and a place to sleep.”

he smiled like he knew.
like his mom told him the same
thing.
“how about you?”

me?
I’m scared of everything.
of the hole in the o-zone layer,
of the lady next door who never
smiles at her dog,
and especially of all the secrets
the government must be breaking
it’s back trying to keep from us.
I love dogs so much, you have no idea.
I sleep when it rains.
I want to tell everyone I love them.
I want to find every stray animal and bring them home.
I want to wake up in your hair
and make you shitty coffee
and kiss your neck
and draw silly stick figures of us.
I never want to ask anyone else
these questions
ever again.

I took my wife to her first NWSL game this weekend and the entire way home was spent excitedly plotting out a Supergirl Soccer AU. Below are the basics… ENJOY!

National City is home to many things:  The last daughter of Krypton, the headquarters of a prominent media conglomerate, a secretive government organization that monitors alien activity… and the best women’s soccer team in the United States.

Alex is largely oblivious, and doesn’t realize who exactly she’s dating when she starts seeing Maggie Sawyer, the captain of the National City team.  But superfans Winn Schott and Vasquez are there to let her know just exactly who she her new girlfriend is.

The team is rocked by accusations of nepotism when they recruit new goalkeeper Lena Luthor from the Metropolis team.  She wants to prove that she is the best - and far more than just the scion of Luthor Corp, corporate sponsors of the NCFC.

To distract from the scandal - and celebrate what makes National City special - team manager Lucy Lane proposes a shift in branding.  And so the team becomes the National City Supers.

Alex prods her sister into attending the first game as Supergirl, but nothing can prepare Kara for what she feels when she meets the impetuous goalie who puts so much passion and energy into every game.

Nine nice surprises

1. The dead are rising from their graves. They have come to tell us that actually the afterlife is really great and not to be worried about them, they just thought we might want to know, nice to see you again, back off home now.

2. An ancient scroll in a long-forgotten language is discovered beneath the Vatican. Judging by the pictures, it is a document on the keeping and care of kittens. For several years, most of the world’s conspiracy theorists devote themselves to obtaining obscure kitten facts in the hope of being able to translate the text. 

3. A super-secret government project is working on a virus which could transform human life as we know it. The laboratory fully and successfully abides by strict biosecurity protocols. The project is eventually scrapped, and all samples destroyed, when it turns out that the virus only works on mice.

4. Your business recieves an order for piranhas and tigers to be shipped to a sinister underground base on a remote island. This is because the base is being converted into a wildlife park in the hope of attracting tourists, having failed to sell at auction to any villains because of a worldwide lack of demand.

5. It appears that an asteroid is headed straight for Earth. This is because intergalactic mail vessels are usually constructed inside asteroid shells. As it turns out, this is Earth’s first shipment of intergalactic mail. There are enough alien junk mailshots to keep all of science and quite a lot of religion and politics busy for a very, very long time.

6. You start a relationship with someone who, unknown to you, has amazing mystical powers and is liable to be drawn into titanic struggles for the future of the Universe at any moment. It is quite a fun relationship and you remember it fondly. You both agreed to call it a day after a few months due to clashing schedules, but you remain friends and the parting was pretty amicable.

7. A giant tentacle rises from the sea South of Tokyo, enthusiastically waves hello, and disappears back forever into the ocean from whence it came.

8. You defeat a charismatic and sexy villain. They stay defeated.

9. A maverick scientist has brought velociraptors back to life. They are small and oddly cute, and they turn out to make great pets.

OKAY I’VE JUST REALISED WHY I LOVE DAVID HAREWOOD’S INSTAGRAM SO MUCH

I have this headcanon now where james hangs around the DEO from time to time (when there’s no emergency bc he has clearance) and every so often he whips out his camera and snaps some of these amazing photos. j’onn tries to get him in trouble, but james insists that nobody will ever see it and kara seems to love it a lot so j’onn just kind of lets it go and threatens to kill james if anybody ever sees the photos

so then like, forty years down the line, alex and maggie are both retired, kara is still obviously supergirl just more part-time than before, and j’onn knows it’s time for him to retire from the DEO. so he emails james and he says ‘it’s time for everyone to see those photos’

so james releases the photos and a personal essay to like, the new york times or something and it’s one of the most profound pieces of photojournalism ever published. he writes about the humanity behind the special ops groups, the strong friendship and kinship, the loyalty and courage. he writes about how aliens can be more human than humanity itself, and how working together has been and always will be necessary for the sake of our survival and happiness.

james wins another pulitzer and a fuckin nobel prize probably and meanwhile alex and maggie’s kids are like ????????????????? why are you guys hanging out at a secret government organization????????????? why are uncle j’onn and aunt m’gann there with you???????????????????? iS THAT UNCLE WINN AND AUNT KARA AND UNCLE CLARK?????????????????? WHO WERE YOU?!???????!??!?????
