I imagine that some Hydra board meeting had to go like this shortly after Iron Man 1:
Hydra Leader 1: Ok guys, you remember that rich kid whose parents we had the Winter Soldier kill a couple years back?
Hydra Leader 2: Yeah, Tony Stark
Hydra Leader 1: Yes. Well, his mentor’s plot to murder him failed and now he’s flying around the globe in a nearly invincible suit of technologically advanced armour hunting down terrorist organisations. I vote that we mobilize the Winter Soldier to take him out immediately.
Hydra Leader 2: No need, canonically we’re not as big a villainous organization in Tony Stark’s plot lines as AIM is, so as long as we don’t actively involve ourselves with him we’ll be good.
Hydra Leader 1: What?
Hydra Leader 2: Sorry, fourth wall broke. Don’t worry, we won’t ever have to fight Iron Man.
Hydra Leader 1: Very well, if you say so.
*After the first fight in Avengers: Age of Ultron*
Hydra Leader 1: Dang it Bob!
Hydra Leader 2: It’s not my fault you stole the scepter that he had just taken from Loki!
OOC. guess who’s doing ANOTHER follow forever finally?!
yes!! it us :’) back with another MILESTONE, and left feeling v grateful and all happy inside~
I know it’s been a WHILE since I’ve done one, but I decided to do one only every 250 new followers I get – because as WEIRD as it is to say, we reach new milestones so fast that the moment I post one of these, within the next month or so we reach another. so, to make it more SPECIAL and less EXCESSIVE tbh.
I always do this thing where I ramble before I actually get to the point of these things, which is tagging everyone! but I just want to say THANK YOU! as always, we have such a loving family here on tumblr and have always felt so welcomed, regardless of the rude people that typically come and go. you guys always give so much support, and I can’t even describe how AMAZED I am that we’ve reached such a big number like this. I never anticipated getting this far and having such a wonderful family here, but I honestly can’t say I don’t know where I’d be today without Ari. she is a huge part of my life and will always be!
SPECIAL THANKS: @delincuenta for this BEAUTIFUL banner! love u bab :’) also the drawing done by an old friendo who is no longer on tumblr anymore – just wanted a quick disclaimer so ya’ll know I didn’t draw that lmao.
alright, onto the tags! ( the most important part !! )
When Sherlock is going through how the women executed the ghostly bride projection, he’s going through how Mofftiss has been queer coding the show. Character mirrors abound in the series, over and over again. It’s one of the basic tenets of our huge repository of meta. By showing a series of bride deceptions, we’re shown that this is done again and again, a mirror being held up to our core characters (Sherlock, John, Moriarty, Mary) through different iterations of other characters, their relationships reflected back at them ad infinitum.
Sherlock then goes on to identify the women’s one mistake: they broke the pane of glass, hence the sound of the glass shattering. The cult of women social justice champions is so obviously a mirror for our TJLC community that my husband even paused the playback on our watch through to comment, “Hm, conspiracy? Where have I heard that before…” and give me a knowing wink. He knew the cult was our mirror before they were unmasked to the audience. So what was our “mistake”? We shattered the glass when we removed it: we broke the fourth wall. We spilled the beans before Mofftiss was ready, and we won’t let it go, because we know we’re right. We cracked the meta code, we saw TJLC and we spread the word, and we won’t stop, even when Mofftiss has had to lie to our faces at conventions and interviews time and again. And though they have to put up a front of us being “wrong” or “hysterical” in the public sphere for the rest of the show to work, they know we are right, and we will win in the end.
WE ALL KNOW ABOUT FRANK AND GERARD’S PACT ABOUT HOW THEY AGREED TO MARRY EACH OTHER IF GERARD DIDN’T GET MARRIED BY THE AGE OF 30. BUT GERARD DID GET MARRIED IN 2007, 7 YEARS BEFORE 2014. GERARD IS NOW 37 AND HE GOT MARRIED 7 YEARS AGO AT THE AGE OF 30. HE ALSO MARRIED LINDSEY IN THE FIRST, WHAT, 2-3 WEEKS OF MEETING HER??? HE RUSHED IT ALL.
HE NEVER WANTED TO MARRY FRANK. SO HE MARRIED SOMEONE ELSE BEFORE THE PACT BECAME TRUE.
