DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.
I really love how this incredibly pale love story is so important to both of them. Peggy in his compass is one of my favorite metaphors EVER (but Steve is always the compass, right, people find due north because of where he’s pointing).
But tiny!Steve in her desk….UGH, Peggy. If you think back on her interactions with Steve pre-serum—which, what, there were like three—and how they worked I repeat UGH. They were all moments when Steve made himself stand out by being vulnerable—jumping on a grenade, wheezing behind the rest of the runners, pointing out the highlights of his history of being beaten up—and his vulnerability inspired her to offer something personal and true.
What Steve seems to love about Peggy is all bound up in respect and admiration and equality—-WHICH ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL THINGS, I LOVE YOU STEVE. But for Peggy? Loving Steve seems to be about remembering that the weakest man she ever knew was so weak it circled around and became strength. Her memory of Steve is of trying when it seems impossible and, you know, the little guy dripping with hope.
god it just killed me that it was pre-serum Steve in that picture because it was from before he was Captain America. It was from before everyone loved him, when he was nothing but 90 pounds of hope and determination and sass. Because that’s who she loved. It wasn’t Captain America that mattered to her - that guy in the costume with the admittedly AMAZING body wasn’t the reason she kept him in her heart even after she married, even after she forgot so much else. It was Steve Rogers she loved.
I just love that in that tiny moment, they made that distinction. Peggy pointed the way for Steve, and still does - remember he only joined SHIELD because he knew she helped set it up. And one of the reasons she does that for him is that just like Bucky, she loved him and believed in him when he was nothing. When he had nothing else he had Bucky and when no other woman would look twice at him Peggy loved him. Neither of them follow Captain America. Both of them are there for that scrappy boy from Brooklyn who wouldn’t back down from a fight.
don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved Batman since I was a tiny child, but I think we all need to come to terms with the fact that he has the personality of very grim yogurt
i feel like the first several months on the enterprise would quickly turn into a game of ‘how much shit can jim kirk get away with in the name of team bonding exercises before he gets Spock to finally vulcan nerve pinch him just to shut him up.’
#and jim just like continously testing his limits#’alright guys he totally let the laser tag tournament slide’#’WE SHOULD TOTALLY DO KARAOKE NEXT’#’WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WILL TAKE TO GET HIM TO SING’#and the rest of the crew is partially entertained by jim’s obvious efforts#but equal parts terrified of how cranky and tense Spock has been as he walks around the ship#and half the ship is taking bets of how long it will take for him to crack
Aww that’s so-
Oh hey shes getting olde-

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.
We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”
I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”
He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.
