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 #captain america #steve rogers #do you ever cry
#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)
There’s that temper of yours again.
Okay, can I just hijack this lovely gifset to ramble on about ghosts for a bit?
I love it dearly when Danny’s eyes change colour when he’s angry (or plotting something). There are a number of reasons (design, comedic timing, and it signals that shit is about to go DOWN) but I think the biggest one is that it’s a casual little reminder that this totally ordinary fourteen-year-old kid is not human. Oh sure, Danny might seem to have more in common with the kids at his school than, say, the Box Ghost, but these moments are the moments when we get reminded that while he may do an admirable job of convincing everyone that his biggest worry is keeping his grades up or getting Paulina to notice him, there is a whole lot more going on under that innocuous facade. This kid is mature beyond his years, has a temper that he can’t always control, and has to constantly consider things that most people don’t even believe exist.
But beyond that, he really isn’t entirely human, and he doesn’t always react like an ordinary fourteen-year-old-kid. What I love about these particular moments is that they seem almost involuntary, which is unusual for this show. When Danny’s powers act up involuntarily (more so in the beginning than in later episodes), it’s usually because he literally has no control over them. They’re alien, foreign, and he doesn’t understand how to make them start or stop, so they do it on their own without any input from him. But when he gets royally pissed off? That’s a different story. These are all moments where Danny would ordinarily react by going ghost and beating something up, but, for whatever reason, can’t. And yet, he’s in-tune enough with his ghost powers that his automatic reaction is to turn them on, even in some small way, without even thinking. That’s not a hapless incident with intangibility. That’s like stubbing your toe and swearing. It’s a learned response, but one that gets ingrained enough that it becomes second nature.
The show didn’t go into it much, preferring to keep the ‘superhero kid’ angle, but we do get to see glimpses into that second nature. And those are the moments I love, when the show acknowledges that being physically transformed into something not-quite-human would have an effect on someone. When they acknowledge that there really isn’t a divide between Fenton and Phantom. And that, while this combination may make Danny Phantom a lot more human, it also makes Danny Fenton a little more…ghostly.
Or maybe I’m reading too much into this.
I love you ^ just saying .
So in English class we had to draw a scene from The Great Gatsby. After the drawings were done the teacher was showing them to the class, and one drawing was a pic of Gatsby reaching towards at the green light, but in the drawing Gatsby didn’t have hands. So my teacher starts saying something like how this picture has hidden meaning and portrays the helplessness Gatsby feels, and the kid next to me just casually says “I can’t draw hands.”
I don’t know what I thought it was gonna be. Honest to God, I did a movie and a couple of little TV shows when I was 16, didn’t do anything again, got into drama school. Then I started working pretty much immediately after drama school. I wasn’t really aware of what was going on, and I still hadn’t really decided that I was an actor. I hadn’t sort of said to myself “Right, this is the rest of my life,” because you can’t, because there is still a big massive part of me saying, “What if the work dries up tomorrow? Then I’m not an actor any more,” you know?
