Everything is either playing with people you don't particularly like or banging your head against a wall trying to break into cliques.

I'm not sure the writers actually appreciated the make-up of the team they were creating in the Infinity Warps arc. I mean, it's a throwaway team for a pocket dimension, they're not actually writing it, so they don't really have to think about it. But like...

▪ Soldier Supreme, a blend of two adult males who is an adult male
▪ Iron Hammer, a blend of two adult males who is an adult male
▪ Arachknight, a blend of two adult males who is four adult males in one body
▪ Weapon Hex, a blend of two women, one below drinking age, who is canonically barely 18 and those 18 years were spent preparing to be the host body of an ancient evil

The Warp World Defenders are Three Men and a Baby. That is a team that is designed for sitcoms. I kind of wish they were writing it, honestly.

I was thinking about how Falke's going to be really conflicted about Tony now with his AU update* and realised that him figuring out his dream was actually new memories is actually a great reason for another round of weird presents. *happy claps* Though he gets to shop off Amazon again now instead of "stuff he found in the desert full of lost caravans and corpses" so it could be slightly less weird... or slightly more weird. Could go either way.


* footage got leaked of him uh strongly resisting arrest at the airport and the media was pretty curious about who this guy was and Tony said basically that he was a victim and should have been gotten help instead of being locked up and showed video of him showing up mid-battle to do battlefield medicine. Of course he also shaded the hell out of Steve over getting him involved... and then Falke killed a bunch of IDF who tried to capture him and lost whatever poor broken lamb cred he had... but you know, it was a gesture.

Working on Falke's AU for the between-movies gaps etc and honestly one of my favourite things is just that he never has a single fucking clue about what's going on. Like, he turns up end of Winter Soldier, then there's Age of Ultron which he completely missed and I really don't know if he even knows it happened at all still, Civil War where Clint fetched him and brought him to Germany and Steve told him who to hit but never really explained why, Black Panther that he actually slept through, and then Infinity War he's going to miss basically all the explanation and set up again as well. At this point I don't care how many more movies I play him for, I'm going to keep this going as long as I damn well can. It's just a rule now. He's never allowed to know what's going on.

I mean I haven't actually seen this yet but since I'm logged in anyway and I've read a ton of spoilers

IW spoilers and Displaced musings )

Um so in the last few days

- they arrested the Golden State Killer (EAR/ONS)
- Cosby was found guilty (at least there was some kind of lead up/warning for this one)
- the Korean war ended

Any other problems from the middle of last century we can get cleared away by the end of this week???

Okay, I'm having a decision problem. My current PB for Cassie (Animorphs) is Larissa Wilson:



But I'm thinking about switching to Karidja Toure:



This is basically the only thing I have left to do before her app's done, lol. Finding a PB for a mid-teens black girl who isn't all glam is such a pain.

I'm meant to be trying to sleep so obviously instead I'm thinking about in character responses to shag marry kill team america edition (sam/steve/bucky). I think if you asked like a thousand people the most common response would *probanly* be marry Steve, then from the other two shag Bucky and kill Sam, but hardly any of my characters would actually pick that and they'd do it in a different order if they did.

Maya: kill Sam at least partly just because she doesn't know him very well, then have wild sex with Bucky (specifically PH version) and marry Steve for lots of conversations about art, and restrictive isolated childhoods that suddenly turned into a lot of privilege, and possibly complicated feelings about America.
Melissa: shag 616 Bucky, then kill Steve and marry Sam. They can fly together!
Elsa: kill Steve, shag Bucky, marry Sam so he can fly her around and drop her on monsters.
Laura: marry Bucky, shag Sam, and kill Steve because she met him when she was 9 and that's a little weird.
Ianto: shag Steve, for sure. Marry Sam the big nerd* and kill Bucky. *whether Sam having psychology training subconsciously influences this choice or not is up in the air.
America: can't she just drop kick all of them?
TJ: shag Sam, kill Bucky and marry Steve, but only if it's a sexless marriage of convenience, otherwise swap Steve and Bucky. He's like her uncle!
Aracely: no
Falke: in a *completely* hypothetical situation because he doesn't like people touching him, kill his doppelganger, shag Bucky (canon MCU or possibly 616 who he met on Knowhere), marry Steve.

Aaaaand I'd better put the tablet away and avoid the blue light in my eyes.

We found a way to make Get Out like ten times worse.

Step one: watch Get Out
Step two: immediately afterwards, watch the music video for Basement Jaxx Where's Your Head At
Step two (A): imagine the main guy in the video is black

My oldest sister didn't understand a reference to the music video so we showed her and my brother was like "I feel like that was just the four minute preview for Get Out..."

I really just cannot decide what I think of Falcon yet. I think it's sort of a position where I like it except for...

- (not necessarily bad but kind of weird) suddenly Sam really cares about swearing in a way that comes across almost like a white person's stereotype of a black momma threatening to wash a kid's mouth out with soap because they said 'damn'
- (ditto) lots of name dropping of different 'black' music to highlight generational difference. Rayshaun mentions Wu Tang, Sam counters with Earth, Wind and Fire. Rayshaun mentions Rihanna and Beyonce, Sam counters with Lauryn Hill. (And yeah, my headcanon totally was that he's a Lauryn Hill fan, but this stuff is coming up weirdly often.) Sam and Shaun (and back in CA:SW Sam and Joaquin) have plenty of other ways to show their different perspectives - though some of that has been problematic as well like the notorious bit where Joaquin is being passionate about, like, human rights and stuff and Sam says something like "sorry [to an absent Steve] if I was ever like that."
- (actually annoying) CLUNK. That was the sound of an anvil being dropped. I totally assumed Sam was being sarcastic when he suggested telling the cops that the mayor was replaced by a demon, and that would have been kind of anvil-icious but still in character and fine, but then the "you have a point" just ruins the whole bit for me. It should have been an in-joke between two characters who were talking from shared experience. Sam is not naive. He's been arrested because cops assumed he was the bad guy before. It wasn't even that old an issue that had that as a flashback scene, it was in the early issues of his Captain America run!

And then you get little bits that I do actually enjoy without feeling weird. I think part of it is just that Spencer did such a terrible job with him in the Captain America run that I don't really trust them with his character anymore. And part is that I can see that they're trying to be relevant and explore what it's like to be a black hero in the current climate, but I don't think the writers actually understand what they're trying to write about enough to sound in any way authentic.
