Wait, guys, hold on, I just realized something.
I know we’re all over talking about Sam Wilson/Falcon as “the love interest” in Winter Soldier. The sort of passive character who’s being wooed.
But I don’t think that’s true.
I think it’s the other way around.
I mean, think about it. In the traditional RomCom, the passive love interest (the one who’s being wooed) is the person being pursued. The one whose barriers have to be broken down. The one whose time and interest is sought after. The one who supports even when a challenger appears.
Steve actively befriends Sam, but it’s Sam who’s trying to get Steve’s attention. Sam who’s trying to get some of Steve’s time. Sam who’s trying to break down some of the barrier’s Steve’s put up to let Sam in more, to admit that Steve’s not having the easiest time adjusting. Sam who reminds Steve that maybe his former partner isn’t worth redeeming, but stands behind Steve’s decision to try to redeem him anyway.
Sam is the woo-er here. Steve is his woo-ee.
Man, it would be worth going through childbirth to be able to tell my kid this.
Batman and Robin #2
tiny vicious damian for moira
i’m with Damian - fuq tha police
SEE THIS IS WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT
Not Damian, Damian is perfect.
Dick always found it a little hard to follow Bruce’s no-kill no-excessive force code whenever he got really pissed, but he always believed in it. He believed that excessive force and killing — even if the person deserved it — was the slippery slope into serial killer-dom that Bruce told him it was. So even when he did step over the line — he once beat the Joker to death because he thought Joker was responsible for killing Tim (Tim was not dead and was able to revive him) — he was always just wracked with guilt over it and usually did an issue of Bat-confessions ‘cause the whole mindset is exacerbated by the fact that he enjoys the fighting that Batman takes as a freakin’ holy mission that he must do and can’t do anything else.
But this Dick? Is only concerned about Gordon coming after them. Not the people that Damian’s hurting or even their families. Nope, the only problem here is that they’d lose the GCPD’s support, which would make their jobs harder.
Talia installs some device or other into Damian’s spine? The first (and really ONLY words) out of his mouth are about possible damage to Dami’s nervous system. Nothing about Damian himself. Nothing about how fucked up that is for a mother to do to her son. No, the concern is directed pointedly at Damian’s nervous system.
Alfred tells Dick that Dami’s been surrounded by ninjas on the Wayne Manor grounds and is hopelessly outnumbered and likely outmatched? ”Thanks for letting me know, Alfred. Say you should really come see all these clues scattered around Wayne Manor, it’s fascinating, I’mma keep following them, later.”
This Dick Grayson doesn’t care about people at all and I HATE him.
25. What color socks are you wearing?
One green and one grey.
38. What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without sleep?
Ummmm … somewhere between 24 and 48 hours; I don’t think I’ve ever actually hit 48 hours.
6. What’s your lucky number?
I don’t think I actually have one! 19 has always kinda been a running theme for me, but it could just be that I notice it more since it’s my birthday and also The Dark Tower series by Stephen King.
34. Have you ever fired a gun?
Not unless you count the NES Duck Hunt gun.
66. Do you like long or short hair?
I love the versatility of long hair, but I personally can’t stand my own hair to be longer than my ears. It bugs the crap out of me to have hair brushing my ears and the back of my neck and over my eyes, which was why I was always pulling it up into ponytails and whatever when I did have long hair.
2. How old are you?
29 /hides from Tumblr babies oh God I’m old
16. Favorite movie?
Right this second? Would probably have to be Winter Soldier.
32. How big is your house?
NONEXISTENT. No okay I live in a three-bedroom, two-full-bathroom apartment with a sorta semi-open-floor-plan living room and kitchen with two other roommates besides my fiance. It’s the top floor apartment of a building with three apartments, so is technically the penthouse. But we don’t have roof access, despite everyone asking that whenever they have to do work up there, even if they’ve done work up there in the past.
67. Can you name all 50 states of America?
Probably not off the top of my head. Let’s give it a try!
New York, New Jersey, Alaska, Alabama, Texas, California, Oregon, Maine, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Hawaii, Virginia, Georgia, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Washington, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada …
What’s that … 32, hmmm …
Montana, Maryland, Delaware, Louisiana, Ohio, Idaho, Tennessee …
West Viriginia, Illinois, Wisconsin …
42. Yeeeeaaaah I’m kinda your stereotypical Northeasterner. I know the Northeastern and New England states, I know the west coast states, some of the Gulf states, and I know Alaska and Hawaii. Everything else is just kinda … empty space in the middle of the country …
93. What gender do you want for a child?
It honestly doesn’t matter to me what gender my child(ren) turn out to be.
i fuckin hate the type of person who enters a room when a show is on and starts talking. what the fuck is wrong with you. who the fuck raised you. are you an animal. get out of my house
I am certain that my greatest and probably only contribution to the world will be to make sure my fiance doesn’t burn out before they change it for the better.
I wish I could have a life but that would require me actually having a skill worth being paid for.
