you know whatd be a fun exercise

get a writer and an artist together. artist does a sketch, writer writes a handful of paragraphs. they give them to each other.

writer has to write a handful of paragraphs on the scene depicted in the sketch, and it cant be just like, describing it. artist has to draw a new sketch from the writing.

it’d be a neat lil’ flex-the-muscles sort of thing.

This kid here is Julian, he’s 2 years old now. He was tragically injured in a car accident at 6 months old, thanks to a drunk driver asshole. He’s been in a wheelchair ever since. The doctors he goes to now say they don’t have enough experience dealing with those injuries on such a young person. Shriner’s in Chicago offered a free evaluation, they just need to get and stay there which unfortunately costs a lot of money anyway. So there’s this fund going and even if you can’t donate yourself please just signal boost this and maybe it reaches people who can.  

(I’m trying not to be mad as fuck but seeing funds for shit like racist cops and potato salad reaching thousands and this fund going so slow is making it really hard not to get absolutely livid and throw stuff around.)

ok, idk how easy this is to read but since everyone is discussing dates, i went to the movie to check. this is steve’s rejection from the beginning, his birthday is in the upper right corner and there’s ANOTHEr date in the lower left which I think is supposed to be a today’s date kind of thing and it looks to be June 14 1943
so there we go, steve enlists in mid 1943

# this feels liate for bucky to be enlisting # but that isn’t the issue
How interesting that you would mention this, because I’ve recently been thinking he didn’t enlist. His serial number, which he’s heard muttering when Steve comes to rescue him, starts “32557.”According to this fabulous WWII serial number generator, an enlisted man from New York should have a serial number starting with the numbers “12.”A New York man with a serial number starting with “32”? Drafted. What we may be dealing with here is a Bucky who didn’t choose to go to war but was instead compelled to do so versus a Steve who is desperate to get in. I think it opens up a lot of different and interesting storylines for the two of them.

There’s been some great meta/discussion about this in the last couple days, which I think is great.

Makes you wonder if Bucky got the draft, and then, knowing how Steve felt about things, told his best buddy he was “enlisting.” Because how do you face this skinny, brave idiot who just won’t stop trying to volunteer that you wouldn’t be going if you didn’t have to?

That generator is absolutely intriguing. But the argument could be made that Bucky didn’t enlist because he wanted to stay back to take care of Steve, Brooklyn Boys for life, you know? That he was worried, should he willingly enlist and go away, that Steve would try to follow him, or that he  (Steve) would get himself killed in an alley if he (Bucky) left Steve alone. There’s a lot to be said about Bucky not enlisting, but rather being drafted, and I’d like to think it’s because he knew that Steve wouldn’t be accepted, and he didn’t want to leave his best friend alone. We always were told of Bucky taking care of Steve when they were kids; going away to war meant leaving his sick, skinny best friend without someone to protect him, and someone as loyal as Bucky Barnes wouldn’t be able to do that willingly. Friendship over patriotism.

I can ABSOLUTELY buy that as Bucky’s reasons for not wanting to enlist. But I think that would compound the issue for Bucky even more. First, how do you tell Steve, who just keeps bouncing off the enlistment requirement like he can wear them down with determination and moxie alone, that you didn’t enlist, you got drafted, and wouldn’t be going to war if not for having no choice? And second, how do you tell him that you refused to volunteer because you feel he can’t take care of himself, and needs you there to protect him?
Rock, hard place, meet James Buchanan Barnes. You’re all going to be spending a lot of time together.

I was watching The Winter Soldier a while ago and had a thought. Do you think Steve went and stole his WWII uniform from the museum because he hoped it would jog Bucky’s memory? Because I do.

i thought that it was because his other uniform was at shield?

Yeah, that was one reason. But I bet there was a bullet proof vest hanging out in Fury’s secret base somewhere that would have probably given Steve better protection than the suit he wore in the 40’s and he wouldn’t have had to sneak into a museum to get it.

Anonymous asked: top 5 harry moments

queerpotters:

  • WALKING TO THE FOREST TO DIE everything from harry waking up in dumbledore’s office to voldemort killing him is just exquisite — harry’s realisation that dumbledore had been grooming him for death and harry being hyperaware of his own body, “brain and nerve and bounding heart” is all so gorgeous and sad and wonderful, and he’s so brave. HE’S SO BRAVE. I’M SO FUCKING SAD IT’S BEEN 7 YEARS
  • destroying dumbledore’s office i love this scene because after 4 books of harry keeping shit to himself and sitting on his feelings you get lots of minor, small explosions post-cedric dying and then THIS, it’s a NUCLEAR BOMB OF ANGER and it’s so satisfying to read but also the most painful thing in the world, ever
  • politely asking the sphinx to move, please this cracks me up every time. if someone was like show me ONE THING that DEFINES harry james potter AS A HUMAN AND A CHARACTER i would show them this scene. life-threatening wizard competition. dangerous magical creature. “can you move, please?” my son
  • torturing amycus after he spit on mcgonagall this means A Lot to me because harry just straight up crucios that fucker without any hesitation or warm-up and puts so much feeling behind it. anything where harry is morally grey is my favourite because he’s The Saviour and the Master of Death and it’s like yeah, and he just crucio’d a dude so hard he flew across the room and passed out
  • "you don’t have to call me ‘sir’, professor" any scene where harry backchats snape is fantastic but i distinctly remember reading this scene and being like OOOHHHH OOOOOHHHH SICK BUUURRNNNN OOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH

Tell me again why a women’s liberation movement is no longer needed.

Dear “I don’t need feminism” crowd…

“The Iowa Supreme Court on Friday stood by its ruling that a dentist acted legally when he fired an assistant because he found her too attractive and worried he would try to start an affair. Coming to the same conclusion as it did in December, the all-male court found that bosses can fire employees they see as threats to their marriages, even if the subordinates have not engaged in flirtatious or other inappropriate behavior. The court said such firings do not count as illegal sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender." [x]

i hope all old white men burn in hell

Are you fucking kidding me.

I just don’t understand this. Why?? How?? What in the world?

Hugh Jackman as Gaston in Beauty and the Beast on Broadwa

NO ONE STEALS BREAD LIKE GASTON
