also shower thoughts regarding OUAT: Killian Jones/Hook’s backstory has always bothered me a little because it’s 1800s high seas tales of adventure rather than the Enchanted Forest’s usual faux-medieval setting. Therefore he must come from another kingdom or another land.
Then I remembered Frozen’s military uniforms and vaguely remembered that because of the dress styles it’s supposed to be early/mid 19th century
and fashions seemingly never go in or out of favour in FTL
So I want Hook to at least know of Arrendelle if not, you know, the disappearance of Jewel of the Realm caused quite a stir in the Navy three hundred years ago.
So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.
In issue 185 of Captain America Red Skull kidnaps Gabe and Peggy and subjects them to severe torture because of their relationship.
In a response to a letter printed in issue 190, the editor explained why they included that storyline and it’s kinda cool.
Gabe/Peggy is so so important and ngl, if we don’t get them together at some point in Agent Carter, it’s just going to be such a disappointment for me.
Wow, this is absolutely awesome. I am not that familiar with the Cap comics from before the movies - I was an avid comic reader in the 90s, but it was 99% the X-titles.
When they had the line in TWS that Peggy married someone that Steve rescued from the Hydra facility, I was going to put money on it being DumDum Dugan because he was the most conventional character and I know the Hollywood machine - kind of eye-rolling all the while.
But being Gabe? That’s awesome. I REALLY hope that this gets worked into the Peggy Carter series.
And I LOVE Marvel’s response here - even back then - likening their bigoted readers to Red Skull’s own complaints. Here’s hoping they have the balls to be that progressive now, decades later with unconventional pairings.
This would mean that Antoine Triplett is Peggy’s grandson, too. Now I need the fic where he and Steve meet, and he fills Steve in on all the years of growing up with Grandpa Gabe and Grandma Peggy. Right now.
Warning: the following may be too badass for you to handle.
Today the Conservatives filed out of the House of Commons in Ottawa early. The NDP followed. Moments later, all the NDP MPs came back into the house and took their seats. They had realized that, with time still on the parliamentary clock and no Conservatives in attendance, they had a very rare majority. In Canada, the conservatives have a majority-controlled house. What followed knocked my socks off. We have a big problem in Canada. Aboriginal women and children have been disappearing for decades from their communities. Sometimes the bodies are found, but often times they’re simply forgotten by everyone but their family and the aboriginal communities. This is a growing problem all across Canada, with the numbers of missing or murdered aboriginal women becoming more and more alarming. The police won’t do anything. The government, despite the pressure that’s been put on them by the NDP, won’t do anything or even talk about the issue. So with a sudden majority in the house and no Conservatives there to mess things up or heckle too loudly for us to be heard, the NDP forced the debate on the Missing or Murdered Aboriginal Women of Canada. It was a stunning moment, made even more so by the fact that the Opposition (NDP) had to literally trick the government to get the issue to the floor. I’m amazed. What a moment. Well done, especially to Mr. Romeo Saganash and Mr. Tom Mulcair. Bravo, New Democrat MPs. Jack would be so proud. To see a video of the incredibly emotional moment in the house, see my blog, I just posted a link.
One correction. The majority of the conservative MP’s had left the house but there were a small number still in attendance. But definitely less than the full NDP caucus which is why they were able to force the debate.
What an amazing moment.
grassangel said: Part of the reason I want to map out all the connections between SHIELD, Stark ind/tech/inc/corp/whatever, the Ten Rings, Hydra, KGB, etc. is because I'm pretty sure a) Hydra at least partly sponsored outifts like the Ten Rings, which means b) yes, yes Obie was selling stuff to Hydra.
1. YES YES YES YE SYES YES YES
2. But I mean explicitly does Obie explicitly know what Hydra is doing!? :D :D :D
Well, he’s probably bffs with Pierce, so the answer is most likely yes.
Probably not of things like Project Insight, but that there is a shadow organisation within SHIELD who shares his values, yes.
And I feel like the engines on those helicarriers was a legacy of that association? Like when the fuck did Tony want to do something like improve SHIELD’s tech of his own free will?
We should probably be thankful it was Coulson who was sent to talk to Pepper and not Grant Ward.

I swear a lot of people would be less confused about their sexual orientation if they knew that romantic orientations were also a thing.
We arrived in the italian capital city of rome. There was an american girl travelling with us called Julie. We discoverd Julie was almost completely blind.Our trip manager jokingly said he had forgotten the way back to the hotel and did anyone know how to get there? None of us did. But then Julie piped up ‘I can do it’. We all thought she was joking too but she said ‘no, seriously, I can take us all back’. So we turned and filed behind her. She led us to the maze of winding streets. Someone asked ‘How’re you doing this? How can you possibly remember the way we came?’ - ‘I just know. Feel how beautiful and cool the air is. We’re by the fountain, that’s where we turned left. ‘I’m smelling freshly baked bread, she said. We turned right by this bakery and this is the café we passed by. I recognized the sound of that coffee machine. Trust me.’ And sure enough with every turn, the things we hadn’t focused on before revealed themselfs like hidden jams. Did we make it back to the hotel? We did, actually! Right to the front door. What struck me was, how Julie made us all see the city through her eyes. - Natalie Dormer (x)
Post with 1 note
aka the only two decent Abby/Ichabod/Katrina fics, and one of the best Jenny/Katrina fics. All obviously written before the S1 finale
but I still hold out hope
Katrina, her partners, domesticity, and no actual witchcraft. Written for Plant_Murder’s birthday.
A/I/K, short and sweet and very domestic.
Katrina is adapting to this new world.
A/I/K, it says mature but it lies and there is most of an explicit scene toward the end. But it’s not smutty and Abby and Katrina are a delight during it.
Perhaps this was right.
(Or, five times Katrina Crane is touched on the night of her rescue from the world between worlds.)
Jenny/Katrina, Abby/Ichabod. A character study and a way to show how Jenny and Katrina are connecting with each in light of Abbie and Ichabod’s relationship. Pre-slash, though Abbie and Ichbod are there/are getting there.
