if anyone ever tells you that hawkeye is not important tell them that he is the only character who is a member of both the avengers and the justice league and walk away

but justice league is DC…?

did i fucking stutter

Quick explanation:  JLA/Avengers had DC and Marvel team up.  Hawkeye saved the day (once in a Silver age era, another against the villain)  The silver age thing did not exist anymore due to timey wimey ness of the villain, but the villain thing did. 

I’m not sure of his status in the New 52, but in Pre 52 he was a member of the Justice League and dated Black Canary for a bit.

#i always love this part because i don’t understand what happened she put the lei on and he was just like holy crap

white lei’s are representative of love

I HAVE BEEN WONDERING THIS SINCE I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD YOU HAVE SOLVED SO MANY MYSTERIES

Stitch literally fell in love. Not romantic love, but family love. 

This is so interesting. Instead of trying to forcefully stop or restrain him - even though Lilo is fully capable of and willing to get physical as we saw with Mertle/Myrtle/What’sherface - Lilo gently showed him love.
And it worked.

awwwwww

Anonymous asked: I'm writing a book where the main characters best friend dies and I need some help with writing a death scene

elumish:

Here are a few things to think about:

Why (in universe) does the character die? Is it an accident? Is it a random stranger who mugs them, hits them by a car, etc.? Is it murder? Is it part of a war? Whether or not the death is intentional in-universe is important when it comes to writing a death scene.

How does the character die? Obviously, some of these questions are answered by answering the previous question, but even within the realm of murder, war, mugging, etc., the how matters. Think about what weapons the character will have. Think about what weapons whoever kills them (if someone kills them) has. If they’re poisoned, figure out how they ingest the poison. Figure out all of the little details, especially if you show the death scene in the story (as opposed to just talking about it).

How long does it take them to die? If the main character (or anyone else) is there, it matters a lot how long it takes for the best friend to die. If they die instantly (and without warning), nobody has a chance to say goodbye. If they take a long time to die, the main character (or anyone else) would be able to talk to them.

Why (in meta) does the character die? Essentially, why do you want to kill them? Is it an important plot point, or are you just sick of writing them. If the only reason that you’re killing them is because you’re sick of writing them, you should seriously reconsider having them as a character at all. Similarly, if their only reason for dying is because you need some reason to have the main character’s personality change, make sure that this isn’t just because you got sick of having the main character act the way that they do. Make the death important, because otherwise people will think it’s stupid.

What was your character’s feelings towards them right before the death? I know that you said that the character is the best friend, but people aren’t 100% totally blissfully happy with their best friend 24/7. Did they have a fight? Was there something left unsaid? Were they blissfully happy as best friends?

Who else is the character leaving behind? Just because they are the main character’s best friend, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have other people in their life. They probably have other friends, family members, possibly lovers/significant others. Their death should affect people other than just the main character.

Make the character a real character before you kill them. Especially when you want the death to be a sympathetic one (which I assume you do), you need to make sure that the readers care about them before they day. Don’t just make them important in the context of the main character. Make them important in their own right. Then their death matters.

Kill them at the right time. Or, rather, kill them at the wrong time. Kill them when it hurts the most for them to die. Kill them just when the main character needs them most, just when they’re about to do something important, just when they’re about to change their life. Doing it when people have the most to lose. That’s when it matters the most. Obviously, this isn’t the only choice, but this will have some of the greatest emotional impact.

If you have a question with more specifics, I can give you an answer with more specifics. Otherwise, I hope this helps.

Anonymous asked: You're all insensitive, selfish, immature little shit heads who have no concept of reality whatsoever.

twocrowns:

oh-snap-pro-lifers:

"Insensitive" yes, because clearly the people trying to give other people equal rights are the ones who are insensitive

"Selfish", because clearly standing up for other people who cannot stand up and speak out for themselves with nothing gained but ridicule is selfish

"Immature", because believing in the right to life, and knowing that even the unborn are alive is immature. 

If you really cannot imagine a reality where the unborn aren’t murdered and the looming choice to kill your child is gone, then I think you’ve forgotten how the world is trying to become more progressive, and reality changes every day.

Calling people “immature shit heads” is intrinsically ironic.

 How Nicole Perlman Became the First Woman to Write a Marvel Movie.

morgan-leigh:

hellotailor:

Really interesting interview with Nicole Perlman, who wrote the Guardians of the Galaxy screenplay while on a two-year writer’s program contract at Marvel Studios.

I highly recommend this interview. Also, it looks like she wrote a Black Widow script that obviously… still has not been made. WHY. WHY.

I wish I did not care so much about that movie, because it is never going to happen, SO THIS IS ONLY GOING TO LEAD TO CRUSHING DISAPPOINTMENT. BUT I DO. I DO CARE. WHY WON’T THEY JUST GIVE IT TO MEEEEE.

officialgaybestfriend asked: That story about Fappy the anti masturbation dolphin may be a hoax, but let's look at the facts; that post is about to hit 60,000 notes. It can only do that because it's completely plausible. It's plausible because Christian institutions have done things as ridiculous or more ridiculous in the past. They do ridiculous things because, inherently, they are ridiculous.

And there it is, folks. Spreading lies is acceptable if said lie is “plausible”.

~Scáth

I should point out that this person is the OP of the Fappy post. The person who posed it as a legit article, cropping out the evidence of the satirical website it came from so people would believe it was true.

And here they are trying to justify their own hateful actions, defending the right to keep spreading the lie as it is, and telling me to shut up for even trying to spread word that it’s false, all while finishing it off with insults.

If you’re Christian I hope you don’t believe asexuality exists because you are implying you and/or others are immune from sinful lust, which is applying divine properties to humans and therefore defying crucial theological principles.

It’s just in asexuals are actually have divine properties 

lmao oh my goodness

finally the recognition i deserve, the godly kind

“If people understood the true purpose of chastity, they would see that it has nothing to do with fear or prudishness. Nor is it a repression of sexual desires. Rather, chastity is an exercise of the will, to choose what is good, the greatest of all that is good. It is a refusal to allow the desire for pleasure to displace the call to love. Pleasure is not a bad thing, but when a person pursues enjoyment at the expense of another, love is abandoned.”

The Melanesian children - naturally blonde hair & dark skin

This is so fascinating and not because of the fact that there are people who are of dark complexions that have natural blond hair but of the science/genetics involved in it.

This article explains as to why these people have such traits and why it isn’t inherited from Europeans, as many would assume.

silversarcasm:

the idea of people having to be ‘useful’ is just so gross, like people do not exist to be used

having to produce something and have a use is a capitalist ideal and not an intrinsic part of humanity

just by being alive you are human and you are worth something and you can never be useless

“People don’t like love, they like that flittery flirty feeling. They don’t love love - love is sacrificial, love is ferocious, it’s not emotive. Our culture doesn’t love love, it loves the idea of love. It wants the emotion without paying anything for it. It’s ridiculous.”
