Steve ‘did it hurt - a little’ Rogers

#/SCREAMS ABOUT HOW SKINNY!STEVE’S CHRONIC PAIN PROBABLY FUCKED UP HIS PERCEPTION OF PAIN FOR LIFE  #STEVE ROGERS ‘OKAY YEAH THAT’S UNPLEASANT’ WOULD PARALYSE ANYONE ELSE  #AND THAT’S NOT THE SERUM  #THAT’S SKINNY STEVE THROUGH AND THROUGH   (via beccabuchanans)

Don’t even start me on the fact he’s spent his whole life trying not to make a big deal of when he’s ill. He doesn’t want pity or sympathy. He doesn’t wanted to be treated like he’s weak. He doesn’t want to be looked down on because ‘he can’t take it’.

You only ever hear Steve Rogers scream once, and when he thinks people think he’s being weak, he stops and never screams again. Not unless you count the moment he sees Bucky fall to his death.

Better Identification of Viking Corpses Reveals: Half of the Warriors Were Female | Tor.com

bisexualpiratequeen:

"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”

Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

Discovered in 1844 in Great Britain, the Decapitus Charm became all the rage in the AWC in the second half of the 19th Century. Used predominately as a party trick, the Department of Secrecy and Obfuscation eventually had to issue an official declaration that taking photographs of those under the enchantment was strictly illegal, as several such images had already fallen into Muggle hands and were raising a number of difficult questions. Luckily for the wizarding world, Muggles seemed only too happy to do their own obfuscation and proving that they were capable of recreating similar images using tricks of development and lighting. Now several hundred similar pictures hang in the Smithsonian Institute for Magical Knowledge, where it is a popular activity for tourists to try and guess which pictures are real and which are merely fakes doctored by Muggle photographers (hint: the real ones can talk).

You know what’s truly sickening about this particular scene? This dress (before the mice gave it a makeover) originally belonged to her deceased mother. Cinderella hardly has any personal possessions due to the greed of her stepmother and stepsisters. So, I assume that this dress meant quite a lot to her as a reminder of a simpler and happier time in her life. It symbolizes a fresh start and a chance at a better life for her.  It must have been traumatizing to see her dreams just destroyed, literally ripped from her, torn to shreds. Not to mention, they verbally abuse her calling her a “thief” and a “kitchen wench”. In the end when Cinderella is standing alone in rags, it’s animated so beautifully because you can feel this weight and this sense of hopelessness. Cinderella’s a girl who even said herself that no one could take away her dreams. But in this scene, you can see she’s giving up.

That’s why it is so important that Cinderella gets her happily ever after. Her Fairy Godmother is a symbol of faith and perseverance in hard times. After all, “Even miracles take a little time.”

I have to say I always hate it when Cinderella is criticized for needing “a man” or a “fairy godmother” to save her. Like I get that we should encourage independence and strength but I think people forget Cinderella was stuck in an abusive household.So often kids and even older teenagers get lost in households like that. There’s literally no way out for them. If anything we shouldn’t be criticizing Cinderella, we should be encouraging more people to become Fairy Godmothers.

THIS.

allofthefeelings replied to your post: “Why is everyone so againts Chad Michael Murray? Srry to ask, I have only seen him in OTH and I don’t know anything about him beside that. I have tried looking for stuff but I have only found articles wondering what he’s done after OTH and he being casted in MAC”:
THE CAST OF DAWSON’S CREEK THOUGHT HE WAS A TOOL. DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IN LIFE FOR THE *CAST OF DAWSON’S CREEK* TO BE LIKE “YEAH, THAT GUY WAS A TOOL.”???

I legit did not know that, and now I can’t stop laughing.

CMM: hated even by the Dawson’s Creek cast.

There are very few things in the greater MCU I’m more invested in than the idea that the two most loving, productive, beneficial-to-all-parties parent/offspring relationships in the whole ‘verse are Melinda and her mother, and Mike and his son.

image

This is really really important to me, and I’m not sure how much is intentional, but when we look at how many characters don’t have productive family lives and their only families are the ones they make and they have to cling to that (Skye grew up in the foster system and also is related to actualfax monsters so latches on to the team immediately; FitzSimmons don’t have BAD relationships with their family but we saw the avoidance of phone calls and they’re attached at the hip to each other; I’m pretty sure everything I know about Coulson’s family comes from fanon; and of course Ward was abused by his brother and set his family’s house on fire), it matters a LOT that the healthiest, most loving blood-family relationships we see are:

  • a tough Black man people try to use as a weapon who, even when kidnapped and forced against his will to work for the bad guys, is always focused on his son’s well-being and wants desperately to be the father this fantastic kid deserves;
  • a Black man who’s the grandson of a Howling Commando, whose sense of honor and duty and genuine goodness comes largely from family legacy;
  • and a badass Chinese-American spy whose mother is an equally badass spy, who we don’t see interact much, but we do see that when May is in a toxic situation, rather than fight her way through or repress her emotions, she does the healthiest thing for herself and leaves, and she trusts her mother to be there for her, and she is.

Whether or not this is an intentional statement, it’s a damn important one, particularly when all three of these refute problematic racist stereotypes these characters might otherwise fall victim to. Agents of SHIELD has fucked up a lot, but I’m really glad it got this right.

~ Meet the new Marchioness of Bath, Emma McQuiston: Britain’s first black Marchioness ~

⤷27 year old actress and TV chef, daughter of a socialite and an Oxford-educated Nigerian oil tycon, wed Ceawlin Henry Laszlo Thynn, Viscount Weymouth, heir apparent to Longleat House [pictured above] In her interview with Tatler, Emma speaks of how her mixed-race heritage has exposed her to snobbery and prejudice since her engagement to Ceawlin. Emma is half-sister of Iain McQuiston, husband of Lord Weymouth’s half-aunt, Lady Silvy Cerne Thynne (daughter of Ceawlin’s paternal grandfather the 6th Marquess of Bath by his second wife). Emma was a bridesmaid at that wedding and has known her future husband since she was four years old. The Marquess of Bath is a title in the Peerage of Great Britain. It was created in 1789 for Thomas Thynne, 3rd Viscount Weymouth.

Did you know at the set of Capitan America 2. Chris Evans couldn’t tell apart  Scarlett Johanson’s stunt doubles from her so he would start talking to them as in they were Scarlett and the stunt doubles played the game ” How long would it take Chris to figure out im not Scarlett” . Apparently the record was 10 minutes.
