Here’s one for you: at least one of Vetinari’s parents was a clown. I mean: he has an irrational hatred of mimes, he understands Mr. Bent perfectly, according to NW his father wasn’t a serious man… look into your heart: you know it to be true.

Dude its even better than that, they have to journey to a certain location in america to combine their codes into the Master Code which can revive the internet.

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

Anonymous said: Do you think that Marvel could have introduced another superheroine in phase 2? I'm not talking about something huge but maybe a few scenes here and there. Do you think there was space in any of the movies?

lol they easily could have introduced more female characters at any point during the avengers franchise. there is no narrative reason why not. the story arc of the marvel cinematic universe was not carved onto stone tablets by god.

there is “space” in literally every single marvel movie to add more female characters or introduce another superheroine. here are some obvious suggestions:

  • give frigga and sif more screentime in Thor & Thor 2, possibly by removing one of the Warriors Three.
  • make coulson and/or sitwell women.
  • make 50% of incidental characters women, instead of 10% or whatever it is right now.
  • introduce a superheroine in literally any marvel movie to date, in the same way that hawkeye had a cameo in thor.
  • introduce a superheroine during a post-credits sequence like quicksilver & scarlet witch. for example, a female supersoldier being created secretly at the end of the first captain america movie.
  • make any of the supervillains or their henchmen female. for example, replace brock lumlow (CATWS) with an equivalent female character from the comics.
  • cut 5 minutes of action sequences from the avengers movie and use that time to show the origin of a female character mutating thanks to a chitauri weapon.

it’s not a matter of “space.” if they can make space for a bunch of agent coulson cameos and an appearance from stan lee in every single movie, they could’ve introduced a superheroine or at least made half of the background characters female. they just decided not to.

Or, it could be due to the fact that the avengers in the original version is made up mostly of men and the fact that many of the female heroes didn’t appear until much later on? Or due to the fact that they involved heroes that already appeared in previous movies. They couldn’t just randomly insert a new female hero, or hero in general, into the avengers for a couple of scenes as it wouldn’t make sense, all the heroes involved were there for the whole thing, you knew about them from previous films and so it made sense. As for making some characters a different gender, why should they? Except for some spin offs, all the characters have remained that gender, with recent exception of the female thor throughout their comic book and tv series life, it wouldn’t make sense. And in regards to your minor characters thing, they wouldn’t exactly go, right, that’s enough guys/gals, now only hire the opposite gender. They went, she/he is good, they’re in, she/he is not good enough, not in this time.

Once again: LOL, because you’re so wrong.

What about Wasp? She was an ~original Avenger, but has been erased from the franchise. Plus, all of the main characters in the Avengers movies have been changed from the comics, in everything from backstory and relationships to personality traits. 95% of the people buying tickets to these movies have very little knowledge of the comics anyway, never mind who showed up first or for how long. Marvel Studios can do whatever the fuck they want. 

Marvel Studios MADE Iron Man hot property. They MADE Hawkeye a central character. They MADE Thor into a blockbuster success, despite the fact that a) it’s an unabashedly weird concept for the genre, and b) it’s a relatively obscure comic compared to, say, the Hulk. And they changed A LOT in Thor, picking and choosing from various different continuities and just plain making up a bunch of stuff. For example, making Jane Foster an astrophysicist, or changing Heimdall’s race, or introducing characters like Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis.

If you’re saying, “they can’t just randomly insert a female hero,” then what do you think of Hawkeye? Marvel did EXACTLY THAT when they gave him a cameo in Thor, just to introduce the character. There are plenty of female (and non-white male) characters who could have been introduced just as easily throughout the franchise: Captain Marvel, Mockingbird, or a Black Panther cameo somewhere in the Iron Man trilogy. You could have She-Hulk as the Avengers’ lawyer. 

As for side-characters, I’m talking about people who provide 2 lines of exposition or drive a truck or stand around in the background as minor SHIELD agents, etc. Very nearly all of those characters are men, and usually white men. There is no ~artistic reason for this.

When introducing a new SHIELD agent or whatever, the writers are MAKING THESE CHARACTERS UP. They’re not interviewing fictional characters and being like, “Well, admittedly our team is already 90% men, but oh boy, this guy is perfect for the job so we’d better hire him!”

He's unstable.Erratic.

I just don’t even get it.  There is so much thinking going on here, about 13,000 sophisticated emotions: you could name them frame by frame. He’s struggling to remember, to cope, but there’s a “he” there—he’s there. He’s not blank or a child or anything - he’s very very turned inward, thinking and remembering. Sebstan is doing so much interiority and it seems to me a very adult interiority, complex and mixed emotions.

when I was studying Greek I would get frustrated and annoyed because often, at the beginning of a sentence or clause — or just scattered haphazardly throughout — there would be three or four “particles” with no specific meaning. the literal translation might be “so thus and”, but of course you couldn’t put that down. they were just placeholder words, colloquial linguistic padding.

now, of course, I realize that I start sentences with “okay but like”.

you can sing the praises of the Greeks all you want, but the fact is, Plato wrote with all the elegance and grace of an off-the-cuff tumblr post.

seriously though like let’s not romanticize the past like we do okay we preseverve personal manuscripts as these MAJESTIC RELICS of the past and it’s like no????? half the shit in manuscripts is so fucking dumb hilarious but dumb it’s like preserving the notes i take in class and trying to discern anything serious from them we even do this with things as recent as shakespeare YOU’D THINK after catullus we would learn that humanity has always found fart jokes funny that EVERYONE draws dicks in their notes that AT NO POINT IN HISTORY have we been refined and mature and like I LOVE IT but let’s ADMIT THAT THAT’S THE CASE (via alfonselric)

Permission granted…

I need to remember to work on my own writing every day, even if it’s only 100 words. Even if I just open one of the WIPs and read through it and fix typos and tighten sentences. Even if what I’m writing is a contemptible self-insert wish-fulfillment fantasy that will never see the light of day.

WRITE IT MAKE THE THING HAPPEN.
