You know, is it really too much to ask to accidentally get sent back in time to 18th century Scotland, find a handsome, young, honest and kind Scottish man, and accidentally get married to him? I don’t think I’m being THAT demanding here
I want a story about Brooklyn residents and their POV after Steve moves back and is an Avenger and fighting and then coming home to Brooklyn and everyone simultaneously unphased and blasé but also alternately super protective and proud of their hometown hero.
And like Steve is just there and he’s a neighbor and a helper and a participant in block parties and spaghetti dinner fundraisers and checks in on the elderly and carries boxes and furniture for people and helps with neighborhood watch and teaches self defense classes and speaks at the schools.
And when he’s fighting and the fighting comes to Brooklyn or people are targeting Cap and everyone is like out on the street with baseball bats and yelling and being super protective and Steve is just like what are you doing are you out of your minds go back into your homes and stay safe and the people of Brooklyn are like fuck no, we are going to help you whether you like it or not. This is our home and you’re OUR kid. Brooklyn born and bred, that shit doesn’t leave you. And you’re not leaving US again.
#BROOKLYNITES ACTIVELY STOPPING PAPARAZZI FROM TAKING SHOTS AT CAP WHILE HE’S JUST LIKE IN FUCKING STARBUCKS OR SOME SHIT? #and there’s a pap across the street and this lady with a baby carriage bumps into the pap just as he’s taking his shot #”not here” she tells him in a quiet voice #and the pap looks around and EVERYONE on the street is giving him dirty looks #home sweet home
#this makes me so happy #because then bucky’s back right? #cripes you think they’re protective of Steve #imagine the collective wrath of brooklyn whenever someone starts trying to paint bucky barnes as a Bad Guy TM #like a radio show is talking shi t #and suddenly they are just swamped with calls from angry brooklyn folks #wanting to know if they like having front teeth (via bonesbuckleup)
fuck this gifset to the deepest darkest corners of hell
Are you ready to hear some shit straight out of a dystopian novel?
On Friday, as I was going to work, I saw a bunch of high school kids holding signs. The one I saw said “My education, my voice!” so I honked and went about my day without thinking about it.
Yesterday, I found out the reason why. It turns out that the newly elected, highly conservative new superintendent is trying to push through a new history curriculum that “calls for teaching materials promoting patriotism, respect for authority and the free-market system while avoiding material that would encourage or condone “civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law.”
Now. I’m absolutely sure that the little hairs on the back of your neck are raised as much as mine are by this sentence. The ENTIRE FOUNDATION OF AMERICAN SOCIETY WAS FOUNDED ON THE IDEA OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AND FIGHTING THE GOVERNMENT. Holy shit. Are we not gonna teach kids the American Revolution? The Civil Rights Movement? Women’s suffrage? The entirety of American History falls under this category!
There’s something more sinister underneath, too. They don’t want kids learning to stand up to the government, stand up to the police, create trouble when your rights are being violated. And that, to me, is unforgivable. To not learn from history, to edit the books (more than they already are) to say that the government and the police and the law are absolute, to censor education in the year 2014, to deny the freedom of education to our kids, is such an injustice that I feel a little sick knowing it’s happening around the corner from me, and not in the newest teen dystopian phenomenon.
SIDENOTE: I am SO SO SO SO happy to hear that teenagers are standing up for this issue. They had a day off school, could have been sleeping, could have been doing anything else, but instead they were fighting for their education…indeed, they were doing exactly what the new superintendent was hoping to avoid ever teaching them. A few of the other signs:
"HISTORY happened whether we teach it or NOT"
"Jeffco, you have no idea how high I CAN FLY"
"Censoring history sounds like BRAINWASHING to me!"
"My education is NOT your political foundation!"

And then the magical traveling circus of scholastic would randomly show up

I seriously miss the book fair.
Wait, you mean these don’t exist anymore?
We even had them in Pakistan and they were a big hit.
Oh the good old days
how to get the d
i think i don’t want it anymore
as a math person i will give the D to any girl that can solve this.
as a girl ‘math person’ i will tell you that you can’t solve this as there are no x or y values as it is only a formula and not a question plus we wouldn’t want the d from you anyway
I’ve never seen someone so efficiently shut down in my entire fucking life
u know someone is having a rough day when their favorite song plays and they don’t sing along
No one will understand how much this just broke my heart.
