Aw, our Steve left [info]knowheremod. Sam is very upset.

Reasons New Zealand is in the international news right now:

- someone died in a typhoid outbreak
- our Prime Minister put tinned spaghetti on pizza

Go us.

Sometime I really wanna play an AU MCU Winter Falcon Sam who stayed in the Air Force longer coz Riley didn't die and got pulled into an extra classified experimental thing which was secretly run by Hydra where he got brainwashed and also actual wings. Because winged!Sam is my jam.

(I have this whole history sorted in my head where he takes advantage of the chaos in The Winter Soldier to escape and then starts stalking Steve, stealing his food and leaving intel for him. Steve obviously assumes it's Bucky until he almost catches him one day when he's bandaging a wound to hold it til it heals and all he sees is this guy flying away. So then he and Natasha get to hunt down Bucky while also trying to convince this winged asshole to actually talk to them and stop taking Steve's leftovers that he was going to have for dinner, goddamnit. Meanwhile Sam has been getting his personality back but is also a jerk who thinks trolling Steve is hilarious.)

oh ps I have changed my comment settings to registered users instead of friends only now. I don't even know why it was set to that. But now anyone with an account can talk to me.

bonus content:
today I saw a tweet from Simone Missick which went something like this:

boy at the check out said to me, "Have you seen #LukeCage? You look like the lady in it."
me: "Is it good?"
boy: "I like it." (bunch of emojis)

Ugh. David Gabriel from Marvel says they're going back to meat-and-potatoes because diversity doesn't sell.

Holy shit I forgot about this:

My sister calls this the "Vote for these abs" speech. Even though he's actually an activist, not an elected official. w/e, same career track.

thought I had while IJ was down:

Reading a fanfic, there was a reference to Steve being named People Magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" and suddenly I'm wondering about the six months or so when Sam was first Captain America and going along with all the tokenistic figurehead friend of the press stuff. Like, he was on a float in a Pride parade, obviously he was doing some major publicity stuff. So, like, what else exactly? Are there magazines with 8 page spreads where he's making bedroom eyes that all his friends laugh at him about when they're out drinking? Did he do a Calvin Klein ad? What sort of stuff did the interviews get into? (Not his political views, apparently.) Did he get to do photo ops with Beyonce and Obama?

I need to make this my new headcanon. Sam is really, really embarrassed about those six months. (Okay, not about meeting Beyonce or Obama. But the magazine interviews and photoshoots. Definitely those.)

Possibly once I've finished with the so-far-24k fic I'm writing right now I need to jump back to 616 and write one where after he and Steve make up, after Pleasant Hill, them and Bucky all take the time to hang out again, have a beer or two… and Steve just absolutely roasts him. (He owns every piece of media publicity Sam did, because it's hilarious he's a good friend.) Bucky almost chokes on his own laughter and Sam hates both of them.

Captain America: Sam Wilson #19 isn't terrible. Which is a great example of damning with faint praise, because what it is is what you get when you ask a privileged white guy with a passing knowledge of Rodney King, ten minutes to read about racism in the criminal justice system, and the opinion that turning Steve into a Nazi is a brilliant idea, to write a comic about a black superhero. Very, very simplistic.

So this is a nice photo my dad took from my family's house last night

Over two thousand hectares of the hills are on fire. He's behind the cordon but hasn't been forced to evacuate yet, the rest of my family that live there are at my older brother's house.

Yeah. That's a thing that's happening.

Man, some face claim recommending accounts on Tumblr don't even try, do they? "Oh, you want a rec for this Latina teenager with noticeably brown skin and very curly dark hair? Here's a list of Latinas." Half of them look white, half have straight hair and a few of them seem to be bikini models or something. One of the ones that had curly hair and brown skin it's dyed blonde. Most of them are definitely in their mid twenties. Yeah, I'll just stick with what I've got.

Nick Spencer is really upset about people punching Nazis and this explains everything about the last few issues of Captain America: Sam Wilson. spoilers: ca:sw is pretty much terrible now )

Wait, I think I get it now. He's been hit by the cosmic cube again. Nazi Steve can't be friends with Sam and still be his perfect self according to Nazi Kobik, so she had to change Sam as well. That's super cunning. /sarcasm

It would be really, really funny to try to play ForgetMeNot, whose mutant power is that everyone forgets him as soon as they look away.

Judith Collins is one of the options for our new Prime Minister and this is honestly so funny for how true it is. She's completely soulless and half my friends (and me) are blocked by her either for really stupid reasons or we're not really sure why. One person had never even tweeted at her and got blocked within two weeks of creating their account lol.

Dec. 5th, 2016

uhhhhh so our prime minister just resigned? and no one has a fucking clue why? the election is next year but he's quitting in a week. which would be good because he's terrible but also really slick and popular buuuuut all the alternatives are much worse and the opposition really doesn't have any senior politicians who would make inspiring leaders. and hasn't done since 2008. they've just been fucking around with old guys who've been in politics for longer than I've been alive that no one gives a shit about, which is why they're polling at less than 25% compared to 50% for the government's party.

so yeah basically this is really confusing and I don't know whether it's good or bad.

Nov. 29th, 2016

I got all caught up on Civil War II (well, the actual CWII title + the CW issues in ANAD Avengers and CA:Sam Wilson) but it's not quite finished so I don't have to decide yet about canon updating Sam. But if I did right now the only real fallout would be with 616 Clint and maybe Jen. And probably a lot of punching bags.

Also I skimmed through the first Civil War: Kingpin and there's no mention of Echo because I guess his adopted daughter being alive again is just not very important? I have three more but I really hate the artist's style. I just want to know why she's randomly alive and whether it's a case of being alive again or her death being retconned or what. Surely they didn't just bring her back on a whim for a single appearance in Daredevil Annual omg. This is gonna bother the hell out of me.

Anyway we need a Miles Morales and Kamala Khan. And a Tony.

(lol and I have five permanent accounts now. added [info]ashtawawidiwin.)

When you go to double-check something on the wiki page of your canonically dead character and THEY GOT BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE HOLY SHIT.
