Peggy Carter in Every Episode → The Blitzkrieg Button (1x04) “Steve Rogers dedicated his mind, his body, his life to the SSR and to this country, not to your bank account. I made the same pledge, but I’m not as good as Steve was. I forgot my pledge running around for you like a corporate spy. So thank you, Howard, for reminding me who Steve was and what I aspire to be.”
It was amazing!!!! Here are a couple of the highlights (may contain SPOILERS also lots of gifs, none of them are mine)
Gal Gadot is pitch perfect as Wonder Woman. She nails every single scene she’s in and she can do it all…romance, comedy, action, drama. Her version of Diana is the Wonder Woman I’ve always admired. She’has an innate sense of good and a strong desire to help people. She can’t just stand on the sidelines if she knows she can help and make a difference.
She’s also adorably naive as a fish out of water adjusting to man’s world and this is also where a lot of the comedy comes from.
Oh and there’s absolutely no denying that she’s ridiculously gorgeous. I fully believe that she actually is a Greek goddess.
Chris Pine is fantastic as Steve Trevor. I’m so glad DCEU snatched up the last Chris and cast him in this role. Steve is brave, he’s kind, he’s funny (his impression of a German officer was incredible) and like Diana, he has an innate desire to do good.
He’s supposed to be a spy and observe and report back but he can’t just do that when he knows that millions of lives will be lost if he just follows everything according to plan.
Also, Chris plays so well off of Gal Gadot. Their chemistry is just so good and I was rooting for them the whole time.
I know they predate Steve and Peggy in the comics, but their chemistry and the nature of their love story reminded me of Steve and Peggy’s relationship and made me enjoy it all the more. I adored all of their interactions together starting with their Little Mermaid like introduction with Diana saving his life and dragging him onto the beach,
their scene in the pools with Diana clearly checking him out,
the whole scene on the boat and the “ALL RIGHT I’LL SLEEP WITH YOU”,
Steve’s reaction to Diana in regular clothes and Diana saving them
and pretty much everything they did together.
Themyscira (a.k.a. colour porn)…Diana’s home is undoubtedly the most gorgeous place we’ve seen in the DCEU thus far. Colours abound EVERYWHERE. Diana rides a horse through a field of bright yellow flowers, she dives into vibrant blue waters, and the field she trains in is a lush green one. I want to live there and never come back.
The action scenes were kick ass! There was a bit too much slow mo, but overall I liked all the hand to hand combat scenes and really seeing Diana in her element, showing us what she’s capable of and handling he sword, shield, lasso, and bracelets like the bad ass warrior goddess she is.
Everyone needs to go see this movie because it is awesome and just look at this beautiful, precious face:
A/N: This is my first headcanon, so I hope I did okay? Not too sure how these things go. I changed it up a bit from what was requested, so hopefully they like it. Please let me know what you think, enjoy!

Peter being an intern at Stark Tower
“Am I gonna help you with the suit, Mr. Stark?! O-Or the the Avengers suits? Oh! What abo-”
“No, you’re my assistant, meaning you don’t touch or bother me except for when I need something. ”
“Y-Yes, Mr. Stark, s-sir.
He gets bored easily and starts making friends with some of the Avengers around the tower
Except for Sam
Sam doesn’t understand why a 15 year old is already interning
Shouldn’t he be in school??? *concerned parent sam*
Plus he’s full of energy in an office building and that doesn’t go too well
He has a designated desk for himself (specifically away from anything that can be broken or messed with)
“T-This is for me? W-Wha-”
“It’s just a desk, chill out kid. Mind bringing me a cup of joe in like 20 minutes? I’ve got a meeting with a bunch of bozos and I’m going to need a pick me up.”
“O-Of course, Mr. Stark. I-I’ll get right on that!”
- But when he gets coffee for Tony, the rest of the Avengers hound him down for some too
“I’ll take a coffee with sugar and cream.” “I want a muffin, none of that whole grain shi-” “Latte with a pastry please!” “Just black coffee…” “Coffee with 6 shots of espresso, I need all the energy I can get!” and so on
Him hurriedly trying to write down their orders on a scratch piece of paper and stuffing it into his neat work pants
“O-Okay, I’ll be back s-soon!”
- Peter literally sprinting to the nearest Starbucks and the line being obnoxiously long
*silent cry* “are you kidding me?!”
Carefully maneuvering through traffic with cases full of hot coffee and bags of food
Trips over a pothole on the road, but uses his spidey reflexes to catch everything, even the stacked napkins (not in plain sight of course, duh.)
- Managing to get back to the tower in a reasonable time with sweat glistening his forehead
“I-I’m back with your o-orders!”
breathless with a exasperated expression of nervousness and glee
All the Avengers racing to get their hot coffees before everyone else
While ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ is a forbidden song for listening because I’ll cry every time, 'Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’ will always remind me of 'spy-husbands-dancing(fighting)-scene’.
wake with loud knocks on your door, you look at the clock and it says it’s 4
pm. Who dares to wake you up in the middle of your nap? You get up from your
couch cursing the soul that is on the other side of the door.
you open the door all your anger disappears, on the other side you see Steve
and you hate how good looking he looks at the moment. He is standing there in a
dark blue sweater and some jeans looking amazing.
realize that you are staring “Steve, what do I own you the pleasure?” He smiles
at you entering you house “Well, I miss you.” He hugs you as he speaks “I am
pretty sure you do, but what are you doing here?”
After being burnt out for about a week, I was finally able to do something ; v ; /) This prompt is a mix of caught in the rain/taking shelter/cuddling prompts! Hope you enjoy under the read more and as always you’re welcome to send me more prompts from here! <3
Hey love your stuff! Do you think you could do a bucky x reader where she’s a soldier and is related to the howling commandos by some relative?
Characters: Bucky x reader, Steve Rogers, Dum Dum Dugan (mentioned)
Summary: Bucky is dragged to an army base to help Steve recruit a soldier for Hill who wants to train someone in intelligence. While watching a fresh batch of army recruits, Bucky can’t help but feel uncomfortable back in an army base, and it doesn’t help that their new recruit is a beautiful woman, but a ghost from Bucky’s past.
Warnings: Swearing, making out???, flirty Bucky
A/N: I love this idea! Thanks to the anon who requested it, hope you enjoy this xo
Walking along the military base felt wrong to Bucky after so many years. It hadn’t been his idea to come, he’d dragged along at Steve’s request, practically begging him to help out with the newest assignment. Bucky had ever so reluctantly agreed to join as a favour, but was now marching the grounds of an army base feeling like a puzzle piece that didn’t quite belong.
“Remind me again why we’re here?” Bucky asked, tugging down his left sleeve even further to conceal his metal limb from view.
“Pretty simple,” Steve said, “Fury wants us to recruit a soldier.”
“Why?” Bucky asked, what possible use would the Avengers have for a soldier?
“So Hill can move someone up through intelligence.”
“So we’re here to recruit a spy?”
Bucky hummed in acknowledgement, but was of course distracted by the fact that he felt like he was walking through a distant dream. Everything about the camp was so familiar, but felt just out of reach. He listened to drill sergeants yelling commands, heard huffs of effort from the mouths of those doing push ups, and felt the ground shake with the stomping of boots on the dirt paths.
Lmao all these people so obsessed with judging and putting their two cents in on literally everyone else’s language and identities remind me of those annoying neighbor ladies who spend their days spying at you from behind their blinds.
“Have you heard, Carol? The woman across the street from me came up with a DIFFERENT sexual identity! The nerve! I mean I’m not judging, but I think she’s doing it for attention. But at least she’s not like those two boys down the street, being all…..*whispers* nonbinary and everything. These children though. Whatever will the come up with next! Oh I have to go, Carol. The next door neighbor looks like they might be using a microlabel!!!!”
thank you for requesting! I’m not quite sure how I feel about this. I initially
loved the first draft I made but then this happened and I feel so-so about it.
Nevertheless, thank you for requesting! I hope you enjoy this.
I no longer have a fever so that’s a good thing! I’m still coughing with the
occasional runny nose. Just in case everyone missed my latest post, REQUESTS
WILL BE CLOSED ON SUNDAY! So, if you have any you want me to write, I will be
accepting them until Sunday! Refer to the post here.
has been playing quietly by himself since he got dropped off by his
kindergarten teacher, Mrs. P. That isn’t really her real name though. JJ just
can’t seem to remember what her name is. He kicks a pebble and let out a sigh.
Daddy had to work and could not pick him up because of work and since Daddy
didn’t give any emergency contact to Mrs. P, she had to send him home. Mrs. P
had waited with him for a while but had to leave after half an hour. So JJ has
been playing alone in his front yard since then.
out of his mind, JJ flops on the grass and closes his eyes. “I miss daddy.” He
murmurs sleepily, his exhaustion finally catching up to him. JJ must have
drifted off to sleep because the next thing he knows, he is being gently shaken
awake and someone is holding an umbrella over him.
JJ.” You sigh in relief when the blond kid with the beautiful blue eyes you
have come to love finally open his eyes. You had been on your way to your house
when you spotted the little boy sprawled on the lawn, unmoving and your brain
automatically assumed the worse so you had run over to him, dropping your
belongings beside him before trying to wake him up which brings you to your
Y/N.” JJ rubs his eyes sleepily as he sits up. “I fell asleep.”
nod your head, kneeling beside him. “What are you doing out here?” You glance
over to his house but it didn’t seem as if anyone is home at all. You spy JJ’s
school bag in front of his door and now that you finally manage to look around,
you also notice his dad’s red Maserati is not around too. Immediately, a frown
appears on your face. “How long have you been out here, darling?” You turn to
look at him, bringing him in your arms, lifting him up. JJ wraps his arms
around your neck instinctively.
dunno.” JJ shrugs, enjoying being held by you. It reminds him of daddy. “Mrs. P
dropped me off and waited with me for a bit because she could not reach daddy’s
phone. She left after that though.” JJ explains when he remembers your earlier
question. Besides, Mrs. P was a boring companion to be with – she didn’t even
want to play with him.
frown on your ace deepens. You are aware that JJ’s kindie often ends early –
some days earlier than most – and today must have been one of those earlier
days. You also know that JJ’s daddy – Jason Todd – is a very busy man. Not to
mention sexy too. But that is absolutely beside the point. The teacher
definitely needs a talking to, too. What if you had not decided to go home
early today? What would have happened to the poor boy?
about we come over to my house first and then we can wait for daddy together?
How’s that sound?” You pick up your belongings and head towards your own house
when JJ nodded his head and unlock your door. You set him down and JJ opens the
door, peeking in to your house.
you.” JJ looks back to grin at you and you almost sigh at how adorable the boy
is. You push open the door wider and Max, your Alaskan Malamute, comes out
running to greet the both of you happily. You laugh when Max jumps and licks
your face. He does the same to JJ too when he sees his favourite boy. “Hi Max!”
JJ’s giggle is very adorable and you smile.
let’s go in. I’ll make us something light to eat.” You tell JJ as the three of
you walk inside. Max skips happily in front of the two of you. “Are you hungry,
nods his head. “Yes!”
close the door behind you and make sure the door is locked before dropping your
keys and belongings on the counter. JJ runs off ahead with Max chasing after
him, laughing happily as the two of them start playing chase. That is how you
spend the rest of the day – playing with JJ and feeding the little boy.
grunts as he parks his Maserati, letting out a few expletives. His work hard
taken too much of his time and Jason had actually thought he would have
finished it before JJ is let out of kindergarten but that was not the case. His
house is dark and it is really late at night too. What the fuck had the
teachers been thinking by leaving his son alone here? He really should have
given them Alfred’s number as an emergency contact – but at the same time,
Jason did not want JJ to be seen as the billionaire’s grandson! He wants JJ to
grow up without the eyes of the public on him.
Jason panics when he does not see JJ anywhere but stumbles upon his bag. He
really should consider moving JJ to a closer kindergarten or maybe even
considering just sending JJ to a private day-night care instead. Jason is about
to call out JJ’s name when he spies a paper stuck on his door. “What the hell.”
He rips the paper off of the door and squints as he tries to read it in the
dark. His head shoots up and he looks at his neighbour’s house before sighing
crosses the lawn and knocks on your door. He can hear JJ’s laughter from inside
and Jason releases another sigh of relief. He can hear your voice telling JJ (“That’s
your daddy, let’s go greet him,”) and Jason suddenly feels anxious.
moment the door opens, JJ jumps towards Jason, causing Jason to reach forward
to wrap his arms around his son. JJ giggles happily when Jason showers his face
with kisses, momentarily forgetting about your presence. You, on the other
hand, are melting inside at the display of affection. You have always known
Jason to be a very loving dad – JJ tells you about all the things Jason has
done for him – and seeing this right in front of you almost makes you feel shy.
you so much, Y/N.” Jason thanks you profusely and you shake your head, trying
your hardest not to let your blush appear on your cheeks. Up close, Jason is
seriously super handsome and how you are still standing is a mysterious. “I
really should pay you for your time – I didn’t mean to be unreachable. I
thought I could get back before JJ was let out of school.” Jason rambles and
would have continued to ramble if you had not stop him.
shake your head. “No, it’s quite alright. JJ is a very good company too. You
don’t have to pay me,” You assure Jason but it seems as if Jason is not having
any of your excuses so he takes out his wallet and tries to give you a few
bills and you shake your head. This goes on a few times – Jason trying his
hardest to convince you take the money and you rejecting the money because JJ
is a very adorable, laughable boy.
is about to insist you to take his compensation money when you blurt out, “How
about you pay me by coming over to dinner instead? I make some mean steak.” Jason
stares at you in surprise and you blanch when you realize what you have just
said. Your face turns absolutely red and you almost stumble backwards.
we have some mashed potatoes too, Y/N?” JJ asks excitedly. He really likes
eating your food – it reminds him Grandpa Alfred’s food too. Jason looks away
from you to look at JJ briefly. JJ seems very happy, excited too and he looks
at you, waiting for your answer.
course.” You smile at JJ. “We can have mashed potatoes too.”
grins. “Only if you let me bring some wine over.” He tells you. You flush under
his stare and nod your head. “We can have some steak, mashed potatoes, wine for
us and some smoothie for JJ.” Jason takes out his phone and hands it over to
you. “Put your number in – we can set a date sometime this week?”
nod your head, inputting your phone in to Jason’s phone. “That’s a date then.”
Jason chuckles and nods his head. The two of you stare at each other quietly
and would probably have gone on much longer if JJ had not yawn. Jason seems to
remember that it is quite late at night and JJ might have missed his afternoon
nap too. “I’m going to go home now, thank you again for taking care of JJ when
I wasn’t around, Y/N. You are a life saver.” Jason leans forward to press a
kiss on your cheek and you grin at him, your heart beating wildly against your
leaves you standing by your door, cheeks flushed and there is a little bit of a
spring to his steps. He definitely is lucky to have a neighbour like you – one that
would take care of his kid willingly. He knows JJ can be a handful sometimes –
JJ picks up much of his habits too! – and it can really be tiring at times but
as he walks all the way to his own house, JJ has yet to stop talking about all
the fun things he had done while at your house. He even talked about Max, your
dog and how bigger the dog is than Uncle Damian’s Titus is!
it is about time he acts on his feelings for you. Suddenly, Jason is looking
forward to having dinner with you. You might even be what his life needs.

Realizing that his man was liable to crack up, on April 16 Tallmadge sailed with Brewster to Setauket to reassure Woodhull that Washington was properly appreciative of his efforts. Owing to ‘a violent storm and contrary winds,’ as well as the unexpected decision by a couple of British officers to billet themselves on Woodhull, Tallmadge was forced to hide in the woods near Woodhull’s house for five days. Whenever Woodhull sneaked food to him, the two old friends talked of ways to relieve the pressure.
Alexander Rose, Washington’s Spies
This is one of my absolute favorite stories about the Culper Spy Ring, and Ben specifically. He was such a loyal and reliable friend. He camped out in the woods for five days just to make sure Abe was okay, since Abe was so anxious about spying. Reminds me of this scene from the show…
Still blown away that ANY of my works have reached 20+ pages. This story is so much fun, though, and such a challenge. I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I have without @diversemediums and her amazing brain. (We seriously had a long brain-vomit text match the other day and it was amazing.) I cannot wait for all the spinning pieces to come into play and get all worked out.
Finally a week had gone by and Claire was ecstatic to see Jamie again. Murtagh left a short, vague note for Raymond informing him that they’d be back within twenty-four hours.
Much as she’d rather be in the cottage with Jamie, locked in their room for a day, Claire agreed they should stop for supplies first. With Jamie on full lock-down, he couldn’t leave to get food or other necessities. So she and Murtagh stopped to shop for a little bit before they made the rest of the drive to the cottage.
No seriously. He is amazing. I can’t even express how much I admire him and it’s usually easy for me to put these kinds of things into words.
I’m guessing this will be one of those “I need to get this off my chest so expect a long as heck text, thank you” kind of posts. I do not even know yet, I’ll just write and see how it goes. Writing is fun, yo.
Okay so. Sonicmega. Cool dude. Would recommend checking out.
I found him through his “Papyrus Makes a Mixtape” audio in 2015. Shit, I already have a writer’s block. Please brain, work with me. It’s an absolutely hilarious and great lyrical adaption of Bonetrousle, Papyrus’ Theme from Undertale. He wrote the lyrics and voiced both Papyrus and Sans. “Papyrus Makes a Mixtape” was one of the first fanworks of Undertale I ever came across so whenever someone mentions it, I get instant flashbacks to the first days of Undertale. It was one of those songs my sister and I sang the good old days. (And boy, were we into it. We’d even make the facial expressions. Just imagine us listening to it in our car’s speaker and screaming. It’s an accurate image.)
I followed him on tumblr so, occasionally, I’d see his posts but that was it. Basically all I knew about sonicmega. He stuck to me as the voice of Papyrus and Sans in “Papyrus Makes a Mixtape” and “What’s Boning On”, another great masterpiece, if I say so myself.
And then, I happened to purchase a Nintendo Switch in late March of 2017. Money well spent, woop woop! Starting Breath of the Wild was a whole new chapter to me. I had never gone near a Zelda game before that. Breath of the Wild is what got me into the Zelda franchise in general. I don’t know why I had not gotten into Zelda before, being a huge Nintendo fan. Nevertheless, I did and I’m so happy.
Breath of the Wild also got me to realise that I’m a fucking furry ohmygod. I was absolutely not prepared when I walked into Rito Village. I started doing the Main Quest to find Teba. In order to find him, you need to find his wife in the village and for some reason I spent 20 minutes trying to find Saki, aNYWAY. Suddenly Link started doing the “Oh shit, I remember something!” stuff while looking at the village’s landing and that’s how it all started, basically.
I think it was evening. I was lazing out on my couch and watching a freaking gorgeous bird landing in front of Link.
‘Impressive, I know.’
It was at that moment I knew. Revali was a huge jerk.
But there was something so soothing and charming about his voice and his attitude. I honestly got upset when the cutscene was over. My heart needed more, okay.
So like, I still had that ‘I don’t know what just happened and what the heck that bird was talking about but for some reason I love him’ kind of feeling while making my way to the Flight Range.
And guys, guys, guys.
HIS VOICE I CAN’T EVEN- It’s funny because Revali is all I want in my life right now. I’d sacrifice anything for him to be real, it’s crazy. But back then, I was all about Teba. I decided to go to sleep and continue the quest the next day because it was late but I remember fangirling about it all night to my sister, who had not played Breath of the Wild yet. ‘Dude, listen. Today I went to this very cool bird town thing. The setting is all I ever wanted in a village, the soundtrack is my funeral music and there’s this really freaking cool bird warrior with this absolute amazing voice, I want him to sing me goodnight every night, you don’t understand!’
That’s not all of it, however. The first Divine Beast quest I ever started doing was in Gerudo Town, for the Divine Beast Vah Naboris. The thing is, I could not beat Thunderblight Ganon. So I left and headed somewhere else. That somewhere else was Rito Village. I was absolutely terrified to go to Vah Medoh because I was expecting Thunderblight Ganon to come out of no where. I don’t know, I was imagining it to come out and say ‘You thought I forgot about you? Now DIE!’
I’m flying with Teba in the sky, with lasers shooting at us, this epic music that just spoke ‘You can’t fail, bro.’ and the whole scene is so perfect. And when it was time to land on Medoh and Teba got hurt, I screamed. ‘Listen, Teba, my man, we can talk about this? You can like, wait in the corner. Don’t be like Riju, stay with me man.’
And so, Teba leaves. Link does his Sheikah Slate magic and I hear this voice that I can’t shake the feeling I’ve heard before.
‘Well now, I’ve seen this face before…’
‘… Do I know you from somewhere?’
As I mentioned before, I had not beaten Thunderblight Ganon at that point. I did not know who the voice speaking to me inside Vah Naboris was. I thought of Urbosa as “That spy girl who reminds me of Wyldstyle from the LEGO Movie”. I had no idea that the people speaking to you in the Divine Beasts were seen in flashbacks.
To me, Revali was “sir sassy beast, who is probably a black haired tall Hylian dude”. Beating Windblight Ganon with him cheering me was something I needed, if that makes sense. The way ‘I can’t believe I’m actually saying this… But you must avenge me, Link!’ was performed gave me the chills. It meant so much knowing that someone had finally faith in me while I fought that thing.
‘Well I’ll be plucked… You defeated him, eh?’
He lands in the exact same way he had in his cutscene. ‘WAIT HOLD ON, IT WAS JERKISH RITO ALL ALONG!?’ I literally died at that moment. I don’t know how to explain my excitement other than saying I died. Which is not a bad thing considering Revali is a spirit and if I become one I’ll be able to be with him, right, right, right
After Revali gave me his gale and I started realising what the heckling heck was happening, I was in tears. It was the first time I cried in the game. I sound dramatic but it’s true. I felt this ‘Oh god. Husband birb gave me his power. I must not fail him. Wait what, husband? Where did this come from?’. The music. THE MUSIC. ICANSPEAKABOUTHISTHEMEFORHOURSANDHOURSAND-
Technical Difficulties. Please stand by…
The quest in Rito Village is by far my favourite. I loved the characters, the sceneries, the scenario and the overall atmosphere. ‘Love’ is a perfect way to describe my feelings towards this place. I always feel so welcome there.
Then there’s this… Not so welcome place. Not welcome at the outside, at least. Going through the lost woods, feeling lost, alone, scared, only to be greeted in a forest decorated in green by some tiny creatures and… A tree. I looked at it and thought ‘Is this my father? Why do I feel so safe around him? Why is he so perfect for a tree?’
A month and a half later, I believe, I finished Breath of the Wild. I decided to see what the fanbase was about. By freaking instict I type “Revali” in tumblr’s search bar. I had found my home. Literally.
I don’t remember how exactly this happened but I started listening to some audios popping up. ‘Oh man, sonicmega has such a good Ravioli voice!’ I was so happy to see that a creator I was already familiar with had produced something related to my new obsession.
Oh little did I know.
Realising he was the official voice for Revali, Teba and Deku tree made me throw my phone down and scream. I could not process it all. I was so feeling so ??? but so !!! at the same time, it was weird.
As I said, I had never really gotten to know Sean as a person and view his overall work. Currently, I have notifications to his tumblr turned on for his tumblr and I’m afraid I freak him out whenever I like posts three seconds after they are posted, oops. And I may or may not have downloaded all of the Revali and Teba voicelines he was making at some point. I’m not crazy, I’m just filling up my fangirl needs.
Sean is so talented? He can do a huge variety of voices and he has such potential. Listening to his performance in literally everything is such a pleasure. I have never been unsatisfied with his work.
But honestly? What’s being talented if you are not “a person”? To me, being a good person is what matters the most. While yes, being talented is an amazing trait, being good, generous and kind is way more important.
This is why I like and admire Sean so much. Because not only he has gifted us with his voice acting skills but with being real as well. For connecting with his fanbase. For showing us what it’s like - not to voice a character - but to be a person voicing a character.
It’s important to remember that behind all the content we see, there is a person. A living, breathing person.
Nowdays, I think it’s very rare to find someone who is so genuine and passionate about not only their work but their fans as well. Someone who treats their fanbase as allies and does not see themselves superior of them all.
Yesterday, a video by @ojedi popped up at my YouTube feed. She was explaining what had happened in her stream of fighting Calamity Ganon in Breath of the Wild. Basically, Sean was there, watching her beat it. He even recorded an audio in his Revali voice, congratulating her for defeating Ganon and also paid for her E3 ticket. I rushed over to watch the ending of the stream. I was smiling like an idiot throughout the whole thing. And even cried but details. I could feel Haley’s happiness. I just discovered her channel but I am so godamn happy for her. The fact that Sean took the time to do all of this, it warms my heart. Not everyone does this. The kindess this person spreads is something I admire so much.
My dad found an old mp3 somewhere and gave it to me. I already have an mp3 so I decided to use that one to listen to podcasts before going to sleep. The first podcast I listened to, a few days ago, was “ZI Podcast Ep. 055 - Talking with Sean Chiplock”. I am planning on listening to some more I have found.
To begin with, listening to podcasts before sleeping is a great experience and I recommend it a lot. It helps you relax and concentrate, making you both listen to something you enjoy and falling asleep easier. I quite enjoyed the podcast. No, wait. I loved it. As I mentioned more than once already, to me, being real, being a person is more important than talent. Listening to how Sean got into voice acting and how he managed to achieve his dreams is a truly beautiful story and very inspirational.
Sean Chiplock is my role model. I want to be like him when I grow up. I want to be able to interact with my fanbase and give as much as I can. I want to be there, I want to be real.
I don’t know what else to say other than thank you @sonicmega. Thank you for being such a wonderful person. For inspiring us to do things and for making us see some situations in ways we had not thought of. I hope you know you are a huge source of inspiration to so many people and that we’ll continue to support you until the end and even more than that.
Personally, I was going through a very strange stage of my life. As if a new chapter was opened in which you were big help and inspiration in. Thank you for everything you have done. This summer, I learned so many things about voice acting. I also saw how someone can choose how they act towards anyone else, regardless of how well known they are. You interacting with your fanbase, for example. Treating fans as people and not something else. (I already believed this kind of interaction was possible. But seeing it in action is something absolutely fascinating for me.) All those mean a lot. They mean more than I can say.
The essential problem, as I see it, is that the Order was, to some extent, just as guilty as Anakin was in wanting to have it both ways. They recognized he was unstable, and they didn’t want to honor his way of doing things with their approval, but they desperately needed him to defeat the Sith and win the war for them. And when that situation inevitably imploded, it hurt everyone.

never be like them. Then, a much older politician ask to have to unrestricted,
unsupervised access to the kid and they say NO because RULES! But 10 seconds
later, the politician pulls ranks and they say YES because FUCK RULES! He doesn’t
even have to convince mace Windu, all Palpatine says is I’m the Chancellor and
he’s like Sure, take him :/
Palpatine manipulates and abuses the
kid for over 10 years and no notices or do anything about it because no one
pays enough attention and because it’s convenient to them to allow this
relationship to flourish.
But the moment the relationship
becomes inconvenient they hold it against Anakin, and use it to deem him untrustworthy.
So, the friendship is now bad because RULES!
“But he is not stable. You know it.
We all do.” Mace Windu
They openly discussed Anakin and
they all acknowledged Anakin has issues but no one helps. No even thinks about
helping. And then, when they need a spy, they are more than help to use an
unstable person to do their dirty work. Obi-wan pretty much begs than not do it
“And that,” Mace Windu said, “may be the best argument in favor of this
plan. I have told you all what I have seen of the energy between Skywalker and
the Supreme Chancellor. Anything that might distance young Skywalker from
Palpatine’s influence is worth the attempt.”
Remind me again, who put Palpatine and Anakin together in the first
place? Oh, the hypocrisy! They completely twist their views when it serves them. No wonder Anakin,
completely unstable, had such a hard time realizing the difference between the
Sith and Jedi’s bullshit. So, he chose the one he believed would save his family.
Where is the Jedi legendary compassion? They only talk about how to use him, how to Anakin will fulfill the
prophecy, how he’ll save them, how to control him, etc….they NEVER ask each
other: how can we help him?
My biggest problem here is accepting
the Jedi cared for Anakin as an individual. Obi-wan was a flawed mentor but, in
this particular situation, he was the only one who at least tried to shield
Anakin from the Council’s stupid plans. I just can’t believe that a group of
stable, responsible adults who were all very aware of Anakin’s struggles and
did absolutely nothing about it, actually cared for his wellbeing (beyond him being
able to work for them).
I don’t believe they wished him any
harm but the idea that the Jedi Council cared about Anakin (as an individual
and not in the “we must love all living creatures” way) is something beyond my comprehension
lol respecting and acknowledging someone’s abilities is not compassion and it’s
not care. Especially when those abilities are only acknowledges rarely and only
when it serves a higher purpose that the council approves.
Anakin: My most useful
talents are not those of a Jedi.
Mace Windu: Indeed,
you throw your spirit and your anguish into machines and useless competitions,
rather than directly confronting your feelings.
I could ask about what
was done to help Anakin deal with his anguish but we already know the answer to
that one lol
It’s a recurring theme
in Anakin’s life with the Jedi. They point out he’s failing and do nothing to
help him. After years of this treatment, the kid snaps and kills a shitload of
people and the remaining Jedi don’t even have the decency to accept any responsibility
for what happened to him, or even, at the very least, acknowledged they were
part of the problem.
