They say a picture says a thousand words.
I guess it saves the number of ‘no’s that come to mind when I see your face
Patterns repeated from natural paradisal images
More detailed brain
Finish hand images
Start on the eyes
Explore the heart
Don’t let them out
Til they run out
Because silence is golden
Don’t choose noise
For your thoughts to be expressed
Let actions be your voice
Are you emotionally compromised because I am! Bucky’s storyline was handled very well and it evoked maximum pity and pain within me
Also, all those Easter eggs!
The “programming” they did to Bucky was really similar (if not the same as) what they did with Coulson’s Tahiti in Agents of SHIELD so could this have been a lead in? Could this also mean that the other people involved in Coulson’s surgery was overseen by Pierce as well who is also evil HYDRA scum? This will definitely make Coulson’s storyline deeper and could explain the Agents of SHIELD team in “The Providence” maybe on Fury’s orders, again to check on Coulson?
When Capt and Bucky were beating the shizz out of each other and Steve was literally DYING for Bucky to remember him I was internally scream COGNITIVE RECALIBRATION like what Natasha had to do to Clint to get Loki out of his system, just hit in hard in the head omg
Also, Bucky’s ARM! Reminds me of the Deathlok tech we’ve seen in Agents of SHIELD and also in fellow HYDRA scum Agent Garrett’s body plate thing we got a wee tiny glimpse of in “Providence”. Could they be related? I mean they’re all of HYDRA.
If Capt is a Level 8 Agent shouldn’t he also be allowed to know that Coulson is A L I V E?
Love the Steve/Natasha sexual tension but I also really like how they resolved it at the end and I would love to see Bucky/Natasha like in the comics. Steve and Bucky have this shared history and the shared experience of being frozen and being transformed into this super soldier. Natasha and Bucky are also I guess victims as they’re essentially super spies/soldiers/warriors following orders, losing their identities for the sake of their missions and they’re caught in that dilemma where they don’t really know what or who they want to fight for. And all that involvement with the Russians I hope they let her be a form of support for Bucky.
The opening fight scene with Black Widow’s super upgraded weapons was amazing, we rarely see those come into play. Plus her fighting style is so well choreographed and characterised - those swift, fluid movements and her incredible flexibility and sass. Plus Sharon Carter’s badassery and I-take-no-bs attitude and action with HYDRA, that was enjoyable to watch.
AND THE POST-CREDITS SCENE! Love how Loki’s scepter is back and the introduction of Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver! Ties in so much within the Marvel Universe especially with Quicksilver appearing in X-Men Days of Future Past next month! THIS IS INCREDIBLY EXCITING.
Not forgetting the actual credits following the minimalist style we’ve seen in the Thor: The Dark World end credits whilst following a stars and stripes motif. On that note, did anyone catch the stars under Bucky’s shadow? Foreshadowing that he’ll take up the Captain America identity perhaps?
Whatever it is it was a great movie, and I really appreciate how the characters were all very well-developed and featured appropriately. This movie has lots of jargon and contextualization which probably explains the need for Agents of SHIELD to expand on those nitty-gritties but it was a good attempt at encapsulating all these new characters, the reappearance of HYDRA, the mess that is SHIELD now an Fury’s closet of secrets which put the Pretty Little Liars to shame, all in two and a half hours.
From the start, it’s obvious that the avenger are very different from each other, different styles of working, different values, different priorities etc. They worked well at the end after sorting through their differences and capitalizing on their strengths but also because they had a common cause - to save the earth. That being said, they work well together but they still butt heads and we can’t expect them to be super close like a clique of high school girls.
Also, even within the avengers they had doubts about SHIELD and most of them prefer to do their own thing. This HYDRA threat affects many people on earth but SHIELD’s involvement is iffy and I feel that avengers like Hulk and Tony Stark don’t really trust Nick Fury very much.
On Thor, given the circumstances post The Dark World there’s a lot of damage to repair and a lot of foundations that need to be laid again in Asgard. And being Odin’s Son I’m pretty sure Thor’s priority would be to his people and not what’s left of SHIELD
On Clint, perhaps the mind control LOKI had over him still bothers him very much and he’s having trouble grappling with that and had to take some serious time off?
On Tony, he pretty much destroyed all his suits and given how sudden this HYDRA attack was I don’t think he would be able to get it up and running so quickly even though he said he IS ironman.
On Bruce, I don’t think his priorities is with SHIELD or any organization but himself alone. Given his character development in phase one he seems to prefer avoiding all this chains of command and giant organizations and would rather be on his own (and with Tony)
At least we still have Natasha! And those shippable scenes with her and Steve!!
I guess it does matter and it is important
I haven’t gotten an A since ip2
Haven’t gotten an A since I chose arts fac, not even a B, and it makes me question my choices
And I guess it matters because our system is rather reasonable and A’s don’t mean perfect scores, they are actually within reach
But it says something - I’m not meeting expectations yet
And so this A, though significantly less significant, I guess it’s a Push
Because I can succeed with God’s guidance, my hardwork and if I listen to all my wonderful teachers and follow their advice
So I guess it’s all actually within reach
And I want to feel and want to know that I can succeed in something I work for and earnestly enjoy. I need the assurance that sometimes it is possible to have your cake and eat it too
Air Dry Clay or Cold Porcelain is so fun to use - like playdough but it air dries hard. I was a bit dubious of how easy it was to make but all you need is glue, cornstarch, lemon juice and baby oil… and a microwave! You can dye it any colour you want, which means you’re going to save money on buying lots of different colours. Have a look back through the archive for lots of projects you can create with your new DIY dough!
It’s funny how time doesn’t, never stops, even if your heart does, even if your life does.
The hands of time clocks in his desperation as he repeatedly cries out my name at a rate of twice every five seconds.
What is life but a drum beat that eventually loses itself eventually and causes the band to mess up big time on stage in front of it’s largest audience to date.
I was a lifeless vessel filled with potential and energy that just wouldn’t come through.
Nobody really let’s it go, no matter how popularized that quote is amongst the young and restless who are unable to invest anymore of themselves into caring about life.
He believed I wasn’t like any other. If people were music I wouldn’t be pop, punk or rock as he didn’t like constants in his life. I was jazz, a rhythm he could not comprehend though he followed every sharp stretched note through it’s tiny mellow counterparts like he knew the tune.
Every questionable vial of fluorescence and iridescence was dripped into my system while he pumped my chest to his own heartbeat and breathed magic dust into my lungs which left a residue of all around my mouth.
I was revived in time to his 3/4 time.
But he turned me into dubstep
