OKAY BUCKLE UP BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A LITTLE CONVERSATION ABOUT DR. BRUCE BANNER.
Before I begin I want to disclaim something: I love Captain America. He’s a great person, a strong Avenger, a capable leader, and not to mention that Chris Evans is hot (don’t even get me started on the asshole angel Seb Stan, because that is like 20 whole posts on their own).
Recently, me and a friend got into an argument as to who was the best Avenger (she says Cap, I say The Incredible Hulk), and this very scene is the basis of my argument).
The man just fell from the sky. In Hulk form. He wakes up, surrounded by rubble, completely naked, and being watched by this random dude (btw I think that should have been Stan Lee’s cameo but whatever). Now if I were him, my first thought would be Where the hell am I? Jesus Christ, where the hell are my clothes? Holy shit, this guy is staring at me, while I'm naked Did this dude call the cops?
But no. Dr. Banner’s first thought is ‘Did I hurt anybody?’ His mind literally goes to the others first. Like his own life doesn’t matter to him (which we know is true from the earlier line, “I put a bullet in my mouth and the other guy spit it out.” Heart wrenching. I may or may not havedefinitely cried (and am maybe totally still crying a little).)
Now, pointing this out to my friend, she goes on to say, “But Captain America is so hot! The Hulk is old and green.” Here’s my answer.
NUMBER ONE: Cap is technically like 94 years old, so he’s older than Banner.
NUMBER TWO: Chris Evans may be close to godliness, but no one will ever, EVERbe able to convince me that Mark Ruffalo isn’t attractive. He may not be one of those super tall, blonde, ripped, young dudes, but he is HANDSOME.He’s attractive in one of those classy, creep-up-on-you, wake-up-one-morning-and-suddenly-it’s-like-HELLO kinda ways.
(Also, side note, the Hulk could take Cap in a fight any day.)
Dr. Banner will always be my favorite Avenger. I don’t care how many followers I lose, how many hate messages I get, I will never change my mind.
Sorry I took up your time, I had to get that out. The Hulk doesn’t get enough love in my opinion
My answer to the burning question: Where is Shitty?
7k, Jack and Shitty friendship centric, background Zimbits, canon compliant (as of year 3, comic 3)
Shitty, Year 3
Sometimes, Jack forgets that he and Shitty aren’t going back to Samwell. Because immediately after graduation, it seems that nothing has changed. Shitty is still blowing up the group chat with his thoughts on intersectional feminism and Jack is still getting chirped for not knowing how to send moving pictures (gifs, he thinks they are called gifs and there is some debate over the pronunciation that has Holster and Ransom at each other’s throats for a few days). No new frogs have been added in the months of June or July and it’s easy and familiar.
In their private text, Shitty is still sending him the titles of the textbooks he needs for his classes and ranting about how they are all by old white men and, there is a difference in that Jack doesn’t have any assigned textbooks to send back to Shitty but he still enjoys reading history books in his time off. So he sends Shitty those. Gets praised when he picks the ones not written by old white men.
Sometimes Jack has to remind himself. His practices with the Falconers are not just camps that he’s going to. His apartment in Providence is not temporary. He won’t be going back to the Haus. He won’t get to go to Samwell once August rolls around.
But, still, he and Bitty are skyping every night and he and Shitty are texting everyday (skyping about every third day) and it’s different, but not too different and he’s sad when he thinks of Samwell but also happier than he’s ever been in his life.
Why can’t we raise awareness for female victims of sexual assault without using phrases like ‘teach men not to rape’ and ‘yesallwomen’ and ‘yesallmen’ Those phrases put men down, erase male victims of sexual assault, and make women feel like they have to fear the entire male population. This is not a good way to raise awareness, it just creates more negativity.
