I sometimes have to keep myself from commenting on posts about Steve Rogers and how his life was back in the day. Because WOW some folks don’t know anything about history!

Where are the posts about Steve snarling about Hoovervilles? How are people not taking advantage of how one of the reasons for the Great Depression was people buying shit they couldn’t afford on credit so he kinda is shocked that system IS STILL AROUND??? HOW ARE THE BANKS ALLOWED TO STILL DO THIS???

Where are the fics of him taking shit apart late at night when he can’t sleep because of how more efficient stuff is now! But he still hates starching his shirts. Why are there no machines for THAT. And yes Clint, we did have home appliances like washers back then. There were a lot of failed appliances that are no longer used today.

Don’t have him fumble with smartphones and the internet when he would LOVE seeing communication made easier! He saw his troops try to contact their families and how that was next to impossible. He would be so damn happy people can skype family on the other side of the world!

Imagine him bringing home some rabbits or pigeons to eat for supper one day. What do mean people don’t raise livestock in their apartments anymore? Not everyone can live on a farm for fresh meat Tony.

Imagine him FREAKING THE FUCK out of how BIG chickens are in the meat section. Because they are three times the size of what they were when he was a kid. But they sure don’t taste the same. None of the meat is the same. I mean he probably rarely ate meat. Some of it is better because of regulations. IMAGINE Hawkeye trying to freak Steve out when they get hotdogs and they’re a lot better than he remembers. Clint mentions it’s because they don’t throw rats in the vats anymore.

Just imagine historically accurate Steve. Imagine. Imagine him making shit up to fuck with Tony and Clint.

Hello, keeperofthehens, I think you and I should be friends.

There is this beautiful post going around about how Tonks would probably go around as Dumbledore and mess with people, and that Dumbledore would so get in on it.

Well I thought, what if when that happens one of the teachers gets so pissed after a while that it’s just like “I know one of you is miss Tonks, but I don’t know which, so you are both to serve detention with me tonight!”

and then later two Dumbledores actually show up to detention and it’s never discovered who is the real one.

unless your teachers are abusive assholes there is no fucking reason to disrespect them

they are literally trying their hardest to get you an education

teachers have every right to complain about rude students or the amount of papers they have to grade because their salary is low as shit

oh wow, your math teacher yelled at you because you were ignoring the lesson and talking to your friend

i wonder why

jesus christ teachers have it hard enough dont be an asshole

Anonymous asked: Surprised that nobody really pays attention to Hermione's "I never really liked horses" comment about Firenze. Girl's fucking awesome but you know...

lupinatic:


Thank you! This is something about Hermione that is actually really important both to her character and on a meta level, yet her fanbase (encouraged a lot by the movies) is desperately invested in pretending that Hermione has no flaws - or even in rephrasing her flaws so that they sound like inherently good things.

Hermione’s ‘horse’ coment regarding Firenze is really only the tip of the iceberg. She also takes Umbridge to the centaurs knowing perfectly well that Umbridge was guaranteed to say something to make them lose their tempers and take the toad into their custody (apparently she likes ‘horses’ well enough when she can use them to solve her problems) but she wasn’t prepared for them to be smart enough to see that she did so on purpose and used them. Nor was she prepared for the idea that she and Harry were old enough to no longer come under the umbrella of ‘innocent’ (seriously, Hermione’s almost 17 by this point - which is of age in the wizarding world) and that the centaurs might actually do the same to them. She’s perfectly happy to give ‘he’s a werewolf’ as a reason for Harry to not trust Lupin in POA, and in OOTP she tries to directly link the opression of house elves to the oppression of werewolves to Lupin’s face in order to gain his support, when the two situations are very different (one’s a sapient non-human species, the other is a group of humans suffering from a disease). She means well with SPEW, but I’ve seen several people label her reaction as ‘white feminism’ - ie telling people how to feel about an oppression she’s never actually experienced. Her patronising ‘you don’t actually know what you want, let me explain to you’ act got her chucked out of the kitchens for her disrespect, and her reddened face in OOTP when Ron calls her out for hiding the hats (potentially freeing elves that don’t want to be free) is a clear indication that she knows what she is doing is deceitful. Yet she’s smug when the hats disappear, as she thinks she’s been vindicated, when in fact she’s offended the elves into not cleaning those places anymore - putting the whole burden on the very elf she lauds for wanting freedom. Hermione constantly tells people how to think and feel about things, and if they don’t feel the way Hermione wants, she’ll try to argue them out of it. ‘Don’t grieve for your pet bunny’s death because Trelawney’s a fraud’ is probably one of the nastier ones in the books - but apparently Ron’s the mean one for pointing out that other people care about their pets more than they care about Hermione’s need to be right.

Many of my followers may be familiar with lurknomoar’s brilliant piece of meta 'Ron is racist - and that's great' with its message of ‘you can be a good person and still absorb some pretty toxic ideas from the society you live in’ - but Ron is not the only member of the Trio to have absorbed some pretty awful prejudices and to have some seriously questionable attitudes. And I think that pretending the sun shines out of Hermione’s ass and that everything is Ron’s fault is disingenuous. This fandom (and again, the movies are at fault) constantly reframes problematic/prejudiced behaviours and beliefs as solely the province of Ron (even going so far as to assign him problematic attitudes that canonically make him very angry when someone else expresses them, such as casually using the word ‘mudblood’), while Hermione’s some shining white (feminist) beacon of respect and acceptance.

TL;DR Hermione can be a prejudiced jerk, and that’s not the end of the world.

Tutorial: How I colour gifs

pscs5:

Requested by jarjarbinkzz

If you don’t know how to make gifs, I have a tutorial here.

Note: This is just how I personally colour my gifs. I’ll go through the various adjustment layers I use, the general way I usually colour a gif, and what each adjustment layer achieves, but everyone colours their gifs differently. The best advice I have is to experiment with the adjustment layers until you find something that looks good for you.

What’s interesting about good and moral people is that they actually have to try and function in a word that isn’t. And the older you get, the more interesting that becomes. Because it’s also the hardest thing to do in the world. (x) (x)

#yes yes this so very much #it’s easy to be an asshole in a world full of assholes #especially when you have/had a shit life and have/had some nasty shit happened to you #but to still be kind #not to waver #to stay who you are #is a very hard thing to do #it’s easy to love #and it’s easy to hate #but it takes strength to be gentle and kind #and this is why every single superhero in the marvel universe looks up to steve #clint said it himself #steve brings out the best out of people #when you’re around steve you want to do what’s right because of the sheer power of steve’s goodness #oh god  #steve i love you so much it actually pains me please send help

Masochistic Writer does Tumblr Ask event.

johnskylar:

johnskylar:

Leave an ask in my box, and I will visit your tumblr, then based on what I find there I will write a noir character vignette of you.

johnskylar.com/ask

Note: feel free to reblog.  I like pain. ;)

Okay so.  I am still doing these.  I will keep doing these for a few days, obviously breaking for Saturday due to Judaism.

However, I’d like to add a couple of ground rules (I’ll edit the original post too):

  • If your blog includes stuff that’s personal that you specifically don’t want mentioned, please send a separate message noting this.  I don’t want to cause problems for anyone.
  • If your blog doesn’t make your gender identity or pronouns explicitly clear in the “about” section, please tell me what pronouns you’d like me to use in the vignette.  I don’t care what your actual identity is, I just need some pronouns you’re okay with me using.  I.e., you don’t have to out your real gender to me, but if your gender is a secret, tell me some pronouns because it’s hard to write without them.

K, thx.  This has been a lot of fun!
