things I did not know but should have

On the Issue of Responsibility: Addressing T. Ross’s Slide-Show and Master Strategist Steve Rogers

By now, it’s a common theme in my posts that I’m extremely pissed that Tony Stark is apparently to blame for everything in the Marvel Universe. You know, in the How Civil War Should Have Ended video, the people who made it actually suggested that the Sokovia Accords should have been titled the “Tony Accords” because everyone else was just “fighting evil.” It was the first time I hated HISHE. Because no.

I’ve addressed a large part of it before – but there are some things I did not, and I figure, since Thaddeus was kind enough to put together a slide show of what the Avengers are blamed for, I’ll start there. 

Note: Since this is inspired from the Slide-Show, it ignores all events past that.

Avengers 1 (New York)

This one was unfair on Ross’s part. If there is any blame to be assigned on an Avenger, it’s on Thor, but that’s very VERY indirect. For all we know, SHIELD would have still poked the Tesseract even without Thor’s little visit and his fight with the Destroyer. The image Ross displays to illustrate the Avengers’ culpability is that of the Hulk – but if the Hulk hadn’t there, those buildings would have been brought down by the space whales he was targeting. There must have been collateral damage, but it’s still a stretch. We’ll chalk this one up to the bad guys.

CA: Winter Soldier (Washington DC)

This one had me in a quandary for a bit. I love Winter Soldier. However, taking into account the bigger picture, the fact remains that Steve collapsed the WHOLE of SHIELD. Between him and Natasha, they dumped all of SHIELD’s files on the Internet. They cracked Hydra’s operation wide open. It was necessary, in a way – but it could have been done differently. Because the way it was done caused an incredible backlash against ACTUAL SHIELD agents. People died because Steve “punched his way in”.

The price of freedom is high, indeed. I’m pretty sure Steve didn’t ask all the people who were undercover and possibly died if they were on board with his scheme. Many not ALL of them were willing to pay it, Steve.

i miss making things. in retrospect i think that’s what i miss most about my old job; rarely did i make Great Art (usually I made Goofy Nonsense) but at least i made something every day.

now i sit in the corner and make thematic maps that no one looks at or cares about and its just not enough to get me through the day and feel like i accomplished something

i should come up with a project or something to do but ????? i am tired and sad all the time and everything is hard

i know ive been sadposting a lot but also im having a protracted ugly public mental breakdown so fuck you thats where im at right now

I don’t know when, why or where did your love for me go but I do know one thing for sure - it is gone.

And I’m not going to beg you to find it and come back to me.
You can go too.
You already have.
But now I’m letting you go from my heart too.
And my love for you?
It hasn’t turned into hate or resentment. Not even regret.
It’s just up in the sky like a dead star.
Our love is officially dead.
But it’s past is shining like it should.

Thank you guys so much. In 2014, this stage was actually the first time that I was authentically, 100% honest with all of you. I think it’s safe to say that most of you know a lot of my life whether I like it or not, and I had to stop. ‘Cause I had everything, and I was absolutely broken inside, and I kept it all together enough where I would never let you down, but I kept it too much together to where I let myself down. I don’t wanna see your bodies on Instagram. I wanna see what’s in here. I’m not trying to get validation, nor do I need it anymore. All that I can say from the bottom of my heart is I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be able to share what I love every single day, with people that I love. And I have to say thank you so much to my fans because you guys are so damn loyal, and I don’t know what I did to deserve you. But if you are broken, you do not have to stay broken. And if that’s anything, whether you respect me or not, that’s one thing you should know about me, is I care about people. And thank you so much for this, this is for you.

the way luthors Should Have Ended
  • jess does not even bat an eyelash when kara steps out of the elevator, and maybe that’s the first sign that things have changed
  • (jess never disliked her–no, jess just cares about lena, cares in a way kara is eternally thankful for. and kara, reporter kara, could be as much of a threat to lena luthor as any kryptonite-chested henchman. but now– now jess looks up at her, nods, and it feels all the world like success)
  • she knocks, knowing she doesn’t have to, and walks in before lena can answer. this is lena’s office, lena’s space, but oh, if it doesn’t feel like part of her home
  • (oh, if lena doesn’t feel like home)
  • kara has gotten flowers upon flowers upon flowers, in every shade and color and she doesn’t know what to do with all of them, where to put them. she is not used to it, this public sort of praise. she isn’t used to being appreciated as kara, but hasn’t lena always done that? hasn’t lena always seen her as kara first?
  • seeing her as lena is only returning the favor, kara thinks
  • lena smiles easily, and kara’s heart ends up somewhere behind her stomach, thumping out an uneven, frantic beat. she can survive without air on this planet but she is increasingly beginning to believe that without that smile, that look, those eyes–she’d be a goner
  • so, kara says, because she has to say something, has to stop staring at lena and that beautiful magazine cover. my office is overflowing with flowers
  • when lena feigns confusion, crinkles her brow——kara has never wanted to kiss her more. but then lena is talking: thank you. i have never had a friend like you. i’ve never had family like you. 
  • kara can wave off this praise: it is what friends do. but when lena tilts her head, murmurs, coming into that warehouse, saving me– kara coughs, a choked sound. what?
  • lena doesn’t answer; instead, she reaches up, gives kara a moment to stop her, stop this. when kara doesn’t move, lena lifts the glasses off of her face, quietly hums in victory
  • a super and a luthor, lena says again, and kara thinks of that day so many weeks ago, that gala. (she wants to think about lena saving them, saving the day, as she seemed to do so often. she ends up thinking about lena showing up at catco and lena showing up at her apartment and lena, lena lena)
  • you risked a lot for me, lena says, and kara shakes her head. i’d risk anything for you
  • there’s a moment, a perfect one, where their bodies still and time feels forgiving rather than forgetful and the world lifts itself off their shoulders
  • imagine, kara wants to shout. imagine what we could be together, imagine what we could do together, imagine, imagine it—
  • and then kara’s phone rings
  • lena stands quickly, suddenly a shadow of her previously confident self; she has learned pride and posture and learned them well, but when kara is involved, she can do nothing but stumble
  • kara silences her phone and stands, an echo, and the action pulls her closer to lena. they are caught again in this storm, and it thunders louder, and louder, and lena leans in first tugs kara close, arms around shoulders, eyes shut
  • kara knows she is in for a lecture later back at the deo–you almost died, you shouldn’t have gone, you took too big a risk–but lena is kissing her and every doubt and thought and thing flies straight out of her mind
  • lena is kissing her. lena is kissing her
  • she still has her eyes closed for a beat when lena pulls away and giggles: kara– babe, you’re floating a bit
  • kara crashes back down to the ground and falls even harder

How I wish I could tell you that I lose my mind whenever you are around, caused by a simple smile or a laugh that sends shivers down my spine. I wish you knew that I can barely breath whenever your head is resting against my shoulder or your hands are laying on my thighs, that you make me feel hot flames in my stomach and a cold sea in my head, an infinity in my heart and a bitter sweet ending on my mind.
You should know that I wouldn’t change a thing about you, that you are what I have been looking for and that no one is trying to make fun of you when they say that you did something well.
I wish you knew about the feeling in my chest, those thoughts of us, you and me, in a future as unlikely as the end of our world.
—  // and how I wish you felt the same
j.d.m.

I heard that in the next ST movie, Chekov will be in another ship, which is fine because seeing another actor playing him would be too sad. But the other day I started thinking that maybe there should be another character, a new one, because it would be right to do again what Roddenberry did when he added Pavel Chekov to the crew. I mean, back in the 60s, Chevov was way more than a cute kid. It was the middle of the Cold War and he was from Russia, the sworn enemy of the USA at the time. His presence at the bridge was a symbol of peace, of hope.

Since things have changed, this new Chekov never had the same meaning. So maybe they should add someone with that meaning now. I’m not American, I don’t know what country he or she should come from. Maybe from North Korea? Cuba? Iran? Whatever country America hates most now, this new character should be from there. Put an Iranian woman wearing a Starfleet approved hijab on the bridge and don’t make a single comment about it because it’s the 23rd century now and no one gives a shit about these things. Then, she’ll give us the same message that Chekov gave us in 1967: things will get better. 

Thing that really annoys me about people choosing to abstain from voting between Trump and Clinton is that, like…

I’m from Scotland, and I abstained from voting in Brexit. About whether or not the UK should leave the European Union.

My logic at the time I felt was sound. I didn’t know much about either side, and I felt that to vote based on what little knowledge I did have would be stupid. I felt that if you were going to vote for something so important, you should know enough about the thing before going into it.

Abstaining from voting in Brexit is one of the biggest regrets I have.

The night before the results came in I was getting more and more worried. I was talking to other people in Britain about it and following websites and… and I was really getting worried. I was really starting to hope that my country wouldn’t be stupid enough to vote us out the EU. Everyone had been telling me I should vote; not even what to vote for, just that I should vote and not let it go to waste. I didn’t listen. I had remained sound in my judgement that you should only vote if you have enough knowledge about what you’re voting for.

The next morning the results came in. Brexit had won. We were getting removed from the EU - not immediately of course; only over the course of the next two years, it’d take a lot of time to sort that out. But I was distraught. Why did we leave the EU? What was the point? What did it really get us? What was the reasoning behind the people voting to leave? I really wished I had voted. But no, all throughout; I had remained sound in my judgement that you should only vote if you have enough knowledge about what you’re voting for.

As the day and the next few days and the next few weeks went on it got worse. UKIP - an extremely racist party - had been one of the main forces behind voting for Brexit, so it felt like it was a huge victory for them. All across the country a bunch of racist people felt like they had won and felt… I don’t know, suddenly felt justified. You heard reports about them telling people of any other nationality more and more to ‘go home’ or whatever. You heard just so much racist shit happening across the country. When I looked at the poll results, I got even more pissed. Scotland had in a landslide voted to stay in the EU. London had in a landslide voted to stay in the EU. The entire age group under 50 had in a landslide voted to stay in the EU. But instead the rest of England and the age group over 50 had won. They’d taken the vote. More older racist people had voted than younger, and they got what they wanted. There were articles everywhere about how, essentially, the older generation that wouldn’t get to live to really see how this had turned out had ruined the future of the younger generation - our generation. My regret couldn’t be higher; but no, at the time, I felt sound in my judgement that you should only vote if you have enough knowledge about what you’re voting for.


And I’m seeing this happen again in America, but to an even more ridiculous extent. I wouldn’t even be able to use the excuse of not having enough knowledge of what to vote for; because it’s so obvious and in-your-face of who’s the worst of the two. If you don’t vote for Hillary and Trump wins, you’re going to be worrying the night before. If you don’t vote for Hillary and Trump wins, you’re going to question why the fuck that happened the morning the results are announced. If you don’t vote for Hillary and Trump wins; you’re going to find your entire country being more disgustingly racist than ever before, the older generation having a victory they’ll never live to enjoy and instead ruin it for you, and find older, primitive, idiotic parties fueled by hate getting more traction than they should ever be allowed to. 

Please don’t do what I did. Please vote for Hillary. I don’t care how bad she might be; when the morning of the results come, you’re going to wish you voted for her. If nothing else, vote so that you don’t feel the immense regret and guilt in your stomach I now do.

  • DAVE, smashed at 3am after his sisters wedding: you know john the funniest thing me and jade ever did was think that you and rose were going to get together. yall were cute and maybe it woulda been cool but i dont even understand what layers hormone-jacked assumption that must have been because it should have been obvious from the get go that rose was gravitating to the first sassy lesbian she could find like shed refined her ecto-inherited gaydar to detect snarky horseshit
  • JOHN: i dont know dave, all trolls like dating any troll right? why does kanayas sexuality even matter
  • DAVE: come on dude i agree that labelling it doesnt matter for shit at this stage but you cant deny that kanayas gayer than a 1920s elf in booty shorts who doesnt understand modern terminology singing about happiness and friendship while he bangs a komina body pillow
  • DAVE: ysee while trolls like to pretend their quadrants and culture are so alien from ours that wed eat dead babies without knowing theres more similarities than wed expect. we arent eating those dead babies unaware, humanity was using dead babies as burger dip since the first buttscratching caveman killed a cow while it was minding its business eating that grass on its friends body thank you very much
  • DAVE: and like our society they cant seem to grasp the basic concepts that people would be Only attracted to groups that go outside of their preconcieved norms of whats bangable
  • JOHN: uhm
  • DAVE: its pretty interesting though that trolls consider variable sexualities a basic fetish that doesnt matter much while humanity has to make a whole big deal about it to the extent of gouging peoples faces off though both are at least partial in the basic erasure of personal boundaries therefore you see trolls dating people theyre not really interested in or caped douchebags flirting with innocent vampires who would rather strangle them but wonder if its worth a shot anyway
  • DAVE: hell you know that vriska jerk you and her were flirting like there was no tomorrow but next time you see each other you want little to do with anything. whats up with that?
  • JOHN: dave its getting pretty late!! and i dont really want to talk about this...
  • DAVE: wait wasnt she also flirting with that guy who likes fire and then basically kicked him to the kirb in the most violently confused way possible and started fake flirting with my brothers dumb AI thing that nobody could love unless they are into irony in more ways than one
  • DAVE: all this after hanging with another girl who none of us could drag away from her for the most basic of shitposting doing mysterious things together for three years and also vriska being told off by rose for sniffing her girlfriend
  • DAVE: do you think vriska could be a lesbian john
  • TEREZI, on the next seat sniffing a suspicious looking red and green lollipop: WH4TS 4 L3SB14N
  • DAVE: terezi youre not really helping with the discourse here

Vilde: hey Isak. Not to gossip, but I thought I should tell only you that, since you have a thing with him, and then you might want to know it, but I’ve heard that Even has mental problems/psychopath

I: where did you hear that?

V: one that went to Bakka with him last year said he had gone completely mental and wrote a ton of crazy things on the wall to the theatre group and stuff

I: ok.

V: just thought you wanted to know.

I: why would I want to know that?

V: because if i had a thing with someone and they had a reputation like that I would’ve liked to know

I: ok. What if you mess up then
Do you want people to spread rumours about it a year later?
Grow up Vilde

V: hello, you don’t have to be rude, I was saying it as a friend

BTS as things I've said during finals
  • Jin: I've been in this class for two years and the only thing I learned was that Ethan can eat a whole lemon in two minutes
  • Yoongi: I stopped studying once my Spotify free trial ended
  • Hoseok: *had two weeks to do an essay* *started the night it's due*
  • Namjoon: I should've listened three years ago
  • Jimin: If anyone gets 100% I will hunt them down and I'll probably cover their doorknob in Vaseline so they know what it feels like to have victory slipping away from them
  • Taehyung: The only thing I did to prepare myself was watching all seasons of Haikyuuu in two days
  • Jungkook: Why get an A for 'awful' when you can get an F for 'fantastic work keep it up!'
I should be happy but I’m not. i have plans and things to do and nothing stopping me but I keep finding new walls to stand behind. i don’t know how to get out of my own head because
it’s worse at night. you know? that’s when it aches the most, when I can forget all the bad things you did, when I just remember the good. that’s when I almost pick up the phone and dial your number but I don’t because you probably blocked me and you’re probably with her and I’m moving on or supposed to be so instead I delete your contact and
write the information down somewhere else.
