Who I Follow

The more you are positive and say “I want to have a good life,” the more you build that reality for yourself; by creating the life that you want. It is not always the case that things will fall into your lap or that life will be great, but it is all about perspective and having a positive outlook. If something goes wrong, you say, “That happened for a reason, what can I learn from that and how can I grow?”

When she was just a girl, she expected the world

But it flew away from her reach, so she ran away in her sleep

and dreamed of para, para—

#you know thor is gonna go throw his room all ‘I USED TO HAVE ONE!’ just so he can give it to jane so she can take apart    #maybe he can’t find out and asks volstagg for one bc his kids have 300    #but also!!! THAT SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS AN ASGARDIAN BALL IS SO ADVANCED    #and jane finds such wonder in it    #and even when she realised that it’s ball it doesn’t take away from it    #and thor doesn’t mock her for it    #he thinks it’s cute    #he’s definitely gonna find that ball    #he’s sure he had one    #maybe he broke it

Yeah, I can’t resist to reblog just to remind everybody that Thor fell for Jane Foster in the first place because she was so damn clever, and curious, and passionate about her work, and obstinate, and he was impressed and amazed and so touched to see the humans more resourceful than he thought and hey, here is another bit of Thor’s personality, he’s just so happy to have been proven wrong now that it allows him to see the best in people—

I just fail to understand why so many would dislike Jane Foster, and even more erase her character from their works; she is absolutely marvellous, both unbelievable and terribly realistic, adorable and awkward, driven but sweet, kind but relentless, and so fucking gifted. And there are people wondering why Thor is interested in her?! Argh!

Also this scene is quite wonderful: you have two people who had a crush on each other last time they met, but who have been unable to see each other since, and the current events are hardly allowing them to get to know each other better—and they kinda find themselves in the same situation they were last time, and you see how they reconnect and it’s just perfect. Perfectly untimely and a little bit tragic, too.

You see; this, this right here, is why I like them together.  Jane is utterly fascinated by this child’s toy and Thor thinks that’s amazing.  How someone could find wonder in something that he probably takes for granted.  This relationship doesn’t get nearly enough love in this fandom, because people are to busy hating on the female character that the main character loves.  And I really don’t understand that.  I think that, originally, Jane was sort of meant to be the audience substitute.  The person who asks all the questions that the audience might have about the world that Thor inhabits.  But the cool part about Jane is that she’s more than that.  She’s the kind of scientist who finds the universe an endlessly fascinating place, and all the things that she’s encountered through her relationship with Thor has opened her up to possibilities that no one on Earth has ever even dreamed of.  

TL;DR: Jane is one awesome Science Lady and she deserves more respect for that.

Not only is Jane the audience’s substitute, but she is the audience’s clever and curious substitute, something practically unheard of in a fantasy or sci-fi blockbuster; usually the role of the audience’s viewpoint is filled in by a male character who ends up being the saviour of the indigenous species, thanks to all his Earthly knowledge.

Jane is both characteristically human and extraordinarily curious, filled with joy at the prospect of learning something new. She doesn’t dread the unknown, she sees an opportunity to learn more about the world. This is so very precious, so damn positive. And the best thing is that it still feels completely effortless. People who claim she doesn’t have a personality clearly haven’t seen the same movies I have.

Perhaps not so strangely, Thor and Jane’s relationship when it comes to science reminds me of the best hours of Doctor Who, where an old and learned character from a terribly advanced civilisation took an evident pleasure in getting to see the universe anew through the virgin eyes of curious and eager companions.

Thor himself is a formidable and deep character, because he obviously loves to learn as well. He adapts incredibly quickly, and he’s all ready to transform a prejudice into a life lesson. You can visibly see that what attracts him in Jane is her strength, her strengths, and certainly not the prospect of hovering over a frail and tiny human. When he looks at her, he doesn’t see tiny, he doesn’t see petty and ignorant; on the contrary, he sees greatness in mind and in potential.

This is such an unusual way of portraying romantic relationships, you have no idea. It makes me so angry to see people in the fandom retort that Jane is no role model for them because she’s too good, or because she’s not Asgardian, or because she’s not Loki. She is both exceptional and so laughably, so warmly human—typically human, but without the mandatory arrogance that clings to male characters in similar situations.

#Foster’s Fellows indeed.

Jaaaaaaaane. I really want Jane to gain huge longevity and become the pseudo-Norse Goddess of SCIENCE!! because can you imagine her with ten thousand years to explore the cosmos? She would still be this excited about everything at the end of it. She would still be delighting at watching the birth of a star or the a new kind of matter or learning new things about Infinity Stones, finding out how her daughter’s new toy works. Because Jane loves the universe.

I wouldn’t go that far

"Rogers-Barnes. It does have a nice ring to it."

They decide not to wear their uniforms for several reasons. Bucky’s still not comfortable in his own skin sometimes, let alone the uniform he doesn’t feel he has a right to wear. Steve doesn’t push the matter and Pepper quickly announces that khaki doesn’t work with the color scheme anyway so it’s just as well.

Bucky does let Clint cut his hair and there aren’t half as many casualties as anyone expected. The only person who ended up crying had been Steve - for totally different reasons.

The ceremony itself is small. Natasha is Steve’s best man and Pepper is Bucky’s, the only solution to what had become an outright war between Tony, Thor, Sam and Clint. Thor officiates: he’s a god, he can do that if he wants. Peggy is there, accompanied by her niece, and she dances with Bucky before she dances with Steve, warning the both of them not to step on her toes when in reality they are barely touching the ground as they hold her carefully in their arms.

They spend the rest of the night dancing together, the rest of the world fading away around them.

"You fasten that tie yourself, Rogers?" Bucky asks, straightening Steve’s tie for the tenth time that day.

"Barnes," Steve corrects with a grin that is reflected back in Bucky’s eyes. He’s Steve Barnes now. Steve Rogers is Captain America and he belongs to the world. Steve Barnes belongs to Bucky alone.

"Barnes," Bucky grins. "I could get used to that."

"You’re gonna have to," Steve tells him, leaning in for a kiss, "I plan on sticking around for a long time."


I was feeling cute today in my Spectre Alenko shirt




Here is the link to the City Lab article and the link to the actual website, Turn On Detroit’s Water.

h/t to amomenttothink for retweeting this.


Hey, if you can, signal boost this.

I was born and raised … about an hour north of Detrooooooooit. (Which really does not scan well, but I’m very much a working-class city girl.)

Higher water bills are affecting us here in Flint, too, but not as badly - and not my apartment complex, though it wouldn’t shock me if new leases had the rent rates go up.
