Please yell more about Bucky Barnes in Civil War,...
But it doesn’t hit home because there’s no goddamn indication they were ever friends.  After Avengers, I’d probably have believed they might have sorted their shit out offscreen, if there had been mentions of each other in their personal movies, if there had been a real friendship and camaraderie evident in Age of Ultron.  But there isn’t.  There is no indication that they progress AT ALL between those two movies, and then there’s that weird stiff handshake at the end of AoU and we’re supposed to believe it’s all good?  

Uh, no.  In fack, Fuck No.  Age of Ultron puts that relationship FIRMLY into the territory of “I’m gonna need to see that resolution onscreen to believe it happened”, because quite frankly Ultron almost destroyed a country and everyone in it and that should have been dealt with.  It should have been actually addressed that Tony helped create Ultron, rather than slotted into “oh, Tony’s afraid his friends are going to die, that’s so sad” and ignored, because THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT BASIS FOR STEVE AND TONY TO BUILD A FRIENDSHIP.  You could have done it with ONE SCENE in Age of Ultron, of Steve finding Tony in the barn rather than Fury, and the two of them having a conversation.  Here, I’ll even script it for you.

[things creep up on you] - Feather (lalaietha) - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
A lot of it happened pre-Coulson, actually! He had a period where he was a total fucking human disaster (18-21 ish) and then a period where he was a human semi-disaster (21-23-ish) which is both where Ksenia comes in (*is mysterious*) and also where he was associating and working for Very Bad People in Eastern Europe, and then he worked with a private security firm from 23-26 and pulled most of his shit together until the guy who ran the firm retired due to losing both his legs below the knee (during which Exciting Adventure Clint first met Coulson, who was in the field at that point) and he spent about a year as free-lance on the basis that he really didn't feel like taking orders from anyone else, until Coulson convinced him to sign on with SHIELD.

But yes. He emphatically came up through the School of Hard Knocks, with full degrees in Survival. And yes. He's about half a decade or so younger than Betty-Bruce-Tony, and about a decade older than Nat-Steve-Bucky-Etc. He and Pepper are about the same age.

Anyway. :D Thank you!

ETA: Oh! And yes. Coulson in this verse is permanently dead.

Raine Wynd's Tumblr — mamalizmas: churchyardgrim: girlfriendluvr: ...
mainstream media they can write off as garbage, but progressive niche media that makes a sincere attempt to represent marginalized folks must be Absolutely Perfect. the idea that a piece of media can have good parts and bad parts, that it can try and only partially succeed, but that that partial success is still worth something, is completely lost on many young fans. either its irredeemable garbage or its the literal messiah, there’s no in-between.

the thing that pisses me off about 50 shades of grey isn’t that it’s twilight fanfiction, it’s that it’s bad ooc twilight fanfiction. the implication that edward would be into bdsm is so fucking dumb he’s a 100 year old virgin who cried and went into a week-long depression the first time he fucked bella he wouldn’t even consider the idea of fucking her until they were married because he didn’t want to compromise his virtue and you’re telling me he’s a dom? no, edward cullen has the most boring vanilla sex ever the only thing unconventional about the way bella and edward fuck is that bella tops and edward cries the whole time and bella gets fed up and goes to the other house to fuck rosalie and edward cries some more in his room alone

Best-case scenario, the show is just a show that makes people aware. It’s not going to do the transformative work we’ve been talking about

“I think for Steve, it’s just so important for him to contribute something. He doesn’t want to be in the shadows. Bucky in this version has always looked out for him and been very overprotective. He’s had Steve in his mind in a certain way. He’d never want anything to happen to him—he’s the only family he’s ever had. […] I think for him there’s an element of, "Okay I’m going to go fight and I will survive this one mission and then I’ll come back and I’ll not go back.” But the problem is that he has no choice because Steve’s going and he never lets Steve go by himself. […] Bucky’s like, “It’s you and I care about you—of course I love you.” - Sebastian Stan [x]

Actually works pretty well. Also, it works with test Shopify sites that you create using a Partners account as well. Great for theme development. A practical use for metafields is to implement a related products listing within a product template. Like so:

KABOOM - The Legend of Korra: Deliberately Deconstructed
This would be worthy of exploration under any circumstance, but I feel it is particularly fascinating given how much of it appears to be in direct reaction to the events of Book One: Air. While I’ve seen countless shows begin with promise, only to fall foul of hegemonic expectations, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen one begin carelessly and then spend three seasons systematically and critically dismantling its initial premise.

A historical survey, including but not limited to: one set of exploded genitals, a brief interlude in France, Mel Gibson and other masterworks of casting, eight Academy awards, several dinosaurs, and something Tony Stark has ominously dubbed “the masterpiece.” Art included.
