There are two little boys outside my apartment building playing Captain America and Winter Soldier, and — I’m not even IN MCU fandom, but this seems very accurate — they are just taking turns carrying each other to an imaginary safe-zone, bridal style.
My anaconda will consider it
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
Someone asked me once, as a kind of dig at the movie, “Why someone like Zoe would have a dress?”
I looked right at him and said, “There’s only one white dress a woman like Zoe would keep. Her wedding dress.”
DIY Knit Outlander Inspired Cowl Free pattern by Kalurah on Ravelry. I have seen a pay pattern on Etsy almost identical to this one, except I like this one better. “The Gathering” cowl is knit with size 50 (25mm) needles. It is free to sign up for Ravelry (no spam). Kalurah describes the cowl:This cowl is inspired by the cowl worn by Claire Randall on the hit series Outlander.
I’ve studied the photos online and I think I have a really close interpretation. The cowl is knit entirely in Garter Stitch and the seam from Provisional Cast On and Kitchener Stitch is completely INVISIBLE!
The pattern has two full twists worked into the cowl so there’s no need to fuss with it after putting it on.
Cowl is SUPER stretchy and can be pulled down over your shoulders for an adorable little Capelet or pulled over your head and worn as a hood.
When Bucky does finally get introduced to Tony, like “This is Tony Stark, Howard’s kid”, and he goes all sad and quiet, looks at the ground and admits that he killed his parents, I want Tony to just nonchalantly start listing off all of the things that Stark Industries weapons are responsible for, look him in the eye and tell him “we all make mistakes when there’s someone else calling the shots.”

Tumblr Teaches History
I reblog this for the anon who once sent me an ask telling me there was no such thing as a history fandom on tumblr.
I can’t decide which is the funniest, the Austrian army fighting itself, or the Irish joke. And before you hate me, I will tell you that the Irish portion of my family was the most recent portion of my family to come to this country, in 1860, so we know from no potatoes.
And the Scots portion came over in 1745 knowing one day they would get another bite at the English, and they did. And the Pennsylvania Dutch came over around that time, for bigger farms and religious freedom. I’m glad they can’t tune in to television and radio now.
And our Onondaga portion met the boats, not happily.
History: you either laugh or you cry.
