I’m picturing him training all of them to be distractions while he murders people AND IT’S SOMEHOW STILL ADORABLE.

A 6-year-old screaming at the top of his lungs in the middle of a facility and then and when some goon comes to check out what the hell is happening, bucky quietly knocks him out and drags him away.  

that’s pretty fucked up but then bucky and the kid high-five i’m so conflicted

THIS WAS ADORABLE AND THEN I GOT TO THE TAGS AND NOW I WANT TO TEAR THINGS APART BUT ALSO HUG ALL THE PIECES IT’S V CONFUSING

(Bucky makes each of the Avengers take responsibility for one Baby Steve. Within a week Natasha’s can stab someone even in the middle of a full-on asthma attack. Clint’s can convince anyone that the Five Second Rule for food is really more like the Three Hours Rule I Mean It’s Pizza Who Wastes Perfectly Good Pizza We Cleaned the Floor Once I Think.)

Steve Rogers Might Wear Tights, but He's Not Your Pin-Up Girl - RosaLui, what_alchemy

Bucky enrolls in a college course about Captain America. It doesn’t go well.

Or, the one where James Barnes writes a ludicrously inappropriate academic paper in defense of Steve’s virtue. Complete with red-penning from a professor whose slow descent into madness is beautifully apparent and a formal letter of apology from Cap himself that doesn’t milk their sad poor orphan status at all, what are you talking about, Captain America would never do that.

I cried laughing. Guys, please. Love yourselves. Read Buck’s foray into academia. And have a few feelings too. 

I read this at work and legit was trying to suppress laughter so bad that tears were in my eyes, which then leaked out and fucked up my eyeliner all over my eyelid

in short this furthered my progression into the winter soldier

go read the thing

#OH MY G OD#NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU ARGUE IT YOU ARE NOT A SUITABLE PRIMARY SOURCE#THIS ISNT ABOUT ME MR BARNES#WHY WOULD YOU HAND THIS IN#YOUR FRIENDS ARE NOT SOURCES#STOP MENTIONING YOURSELF#’he doesn’t understand what size his t-shirts should be’ oh my GOD#if that doesn’t sum up Steven Grant Rogers in one sentence idk what even does#oh Bucky baby#you are a treasure#lmao

Just stop, stop making Melinda May out to be a villain. Stop trying to make any POC character out to be a villain.

Melinda May is training Skye, nothing can be done to change that. Its a huge step in character development considering that the two of them were at odds for most of season one. Remember that it’s just a teaser, don’t assume Skye is going to take on Melinda’s darker traits (which aren’t as bad as people think) because she’s teaching her how to get around in the field. Skye is resourceful already, but at least now Coulson won’t be holding her back to the armored van with all the computers.

Well, I don’t think it has to be with the fact that May is a poc, but just the fact that people like to start talking shit about characters because they have nothing better to do. I’m all about stop the ward hate, the may hate and the fitzsimmons hate 2k14 thank you

the difference is: ward deserves every ounce of hate thrown at him because he is actual human garbage

whereas melinda may is a fucking queen

The very idea of “May’s darker traits” that people (not you, OP) keep trying to push makes me SO ANGRY.

Turning inwards because of stressful situations is not a dark trait, it’s a way of coping- successfully, one might add- with a traumatic incident. Moreover, she’s moved forward and we’ve seen, several times in the first season alone, that she has a sense of humor and can be light-hearted. She’s not constantly enthusiastic and snarky, because she’s seen shit and done shit and grown the fuck up. How is that a dark trait? Dark traits would be- for completely hypothetical example- being willing to kill for a Nazi organization. If anything, it seems to me that doing what it takes to preserve her own mental health while getting what needs to be done, done, is a light and admirable thing to do.

If May were a white dude we would never hear the end of how great and brave she is, and what a hero she is for coping the way she does.

"The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)"

Is there some way to make sure the NSA agents monitoring my internet usage understand that my searches aren’t because I’m incompetent, they’re because I’m trying to explain computer systems I don’t use to parents who get too hysterical to research for themselves?

I have spent a not insignificant amount of this weekend thinking about whether the Groot at the end of GOTG counts as the same Groot or a different Groot as the beginning of the movie, and whether “baby Groot” is appropriate in either case.

Why would you choose flight or super strength when you could have the superpower to never have ingrown hairs

I was in the middle of rewriting a reply to an awesome comment I got about Nick and Natasha having a complicated father/daughter relationship (which: Y E S and I’m sad my original post got eaten in a Firefox crash because I promise it was great) and got distracted by Fury taking it upon himself to decide if people are Good Enough for Natasha.

So he’s in the middle of interrogating Sam and Natasha comes storming in, deathly calm (but emphasis on deathly) like “We have discussed this. Multiple times. First of all, I can take care of myself. Second, if they helped us take down an international threat, you do not get to try to intimidate them before they can date me.”

And Steve is laughing his ass off because it’s a lot funnier from this end than when they were still cleaning up Chitauri bodies and he was saying “yes sir” a lot until Natasha came in and yelled at Fury for that too.

And Sam’s like “No offense, sir, but I’m a lot more concerned with what Natasha thinks of me than what you do. But also you invited me to join you so I’m not really sure where this is coming from.”

And Fury’s like “I have so little fun everyone thinks I’m dead I even got rid of my eyepatch can’t you just let me have this.”

Natasha tells him that if he tries it again she’s telling Maria.

where did you pre-order from? I’m trying to decide where to order mine…

I went with the fancy Best Buy steel box and I have lost all ability to be ashamed of this. When Thor 2 came out, I went to Best Buy at my lunch and they’d sold out of the movie entirely.

If I can find confirmation that another retailer has character-specific boxes and one of them is Natasha and/or Sam, I may end up buying a second one on the day of the release because I am not very good at restraint.
