This is a multi-fandom blog, at the moment quite a bit of MCU and comics. And probably some current events. Love science, history, and violin music.

PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE THIS.

This Thursday, Scotland votes for its independence.

The BBC is trying to report that Yes to Independence is losing. They’re using photos to imply our gatherings are tiny and insignificant instead of the many photos like those above. They’re reporting that an anti-independence march by the Orange Order (think the KKK with more British flags) was a peaceful pro-union family march. They have been caught editing clips to discredit our First Minister.

There is a protest outside BBC headquarters right now. They are claiming there are a maximum of 350 protesters.

Watch for yourself. There are far more people outside their offices right now and they are being ignored and misreported.

We need to be seen. The only way we’ve been able to disseminate accurate information has been through social media. The media we rely on to spread unbiased information is lying to us, trying to suppress us.

PLEASE SHARE. PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS. WE NEED OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.

this website is very american-centric. please, we need to be heard. please pay attention.

this is a whole country’s FUTURE.

GREEK MYTHOLOGY MEME | [3/6] GODS: AMPHITRITE 

Amphitrite  was the goddess queen of the sea, the wife of King Poseidon. Some say she was one of the fifty Nereides, others an Okeanis, but most simply describe her as the female personification of the sea: the loud-moaning mother of fish, seals and dolphins. As such she was essentially the same as Thalassa. When Poseidon first sought Amphitrite’s hand in marriage, she fled his advances, and hid herself away near Atlas in the Ocean stream at the far ends of the earth. The dolphin-god Delphin eventually tracked her down and persuaded her to return to wed the sea-king.

The Winter Soldier doesn’t speak more than he needs to.
While his programming is still strong enough that his face doesn’t tell a thing, the way he talks is a total tell-tale.
In a line just preceding this, he is efficiently curt-Она моя, найди его. ‘She’s mine,find him.’ Only the basics one needs to understand the order; it’s completely emotionless and sparse.
It is interesting, compared to the downright chilling calmness with which he carries himself during battle. Everyone else might be scurrying and running, but he never rushes. He isn’t non-verbose because he’s pressed for time, he is curt because he was designed to be brutally efficient in every aspect, including talking.
So why on Earth, when facing his mission and having him on gunpoint, he says what is probably his longest line in the whole film?
Why would he even bother to speak? Many other objectives have talked to him, probably pleaded,promised,accused. Why should he care what the man on the bridge is saying, when he is supposed to be dead in a moment?
Perhaps, “Who is Bucky?" could be acceptable, given it’s information his superiors might find useful. He doesn’t know or care, it’s just another sentence he’ll add when he is told "Mission report,now”.
But “Who the hell is Bucky?" is just unnatural for the Winter Soldier. A completely inefficient curse thrown in. Inefficient, that is, for a less-than-talkative assassin.
Cursing relieves emotion, though. We curse when we’re scared,angry,hurt,frustrated,elated,amazed. When there is an overpowering emotion we need to express in every way possible.
That little ‘the hell' is the human inside the weapon. What could be strong enough to overpower the sterile straightforward programming, though?
For the first time in 70 years someone gives him a name. There is recognition and emotion all over his mission’s face. Emotion that isn’t horror, but disbelief,relief,hope.
Someone names him and goes beyond that-shows him he has much more to tell.
It fucks him up. The name stirs up shards of memories, not enough for them to surface, but enough to disbalance the Soldier’s inner order. For the first time during a mission something is interrupting his flow of action and it’s something he can’t overcome.
In that moment he is frustrated, both at the turmoil the target caused in him and the uprising need to know more. His programming doesn’t function well when there are emotions present. He knows he has to shut them down in order to finish his business, but for the first time, he doesn’t want to.
It all results in the most sincere and emotional thing he has ever said since he became the Winter Soldier.
"Who the hell is Bucky?...Is this me?”

you know what I do when I don’t like a character?

  • I don’t talk about them.
  • I don’t go into their tag.
  • If I see an edit of them, I ignore it.
  • I may even blacklist their name if the dislike is strong enough.

you know what I don’t do when I don’t like a character?
