Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

 (via)

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

The other day I had a really good idea for a story:

A high school Shakespeare club angrily splits into two groups when they can’t agree on the correct interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. One group thinks it’s a cautionary tale about the stupidity of youth and shallow lust; the other group think it’s a beautiful tragedy about poisonous hatred conquered by love. Reconciliation seems impossible-

-then a person from one group falls in love with a person from the other

#it would be better if somehow EVERY OTHER SHAKESPEARE WAS HAPPENING AT ONCE#like you got a benedict and beatice b-story#and then somebody see’s their dad’s ghost#and there’s cross-dressing#and three upperclassmen tell macbeth he will be drama club president

oh my god I need this

nobody dies but SEVEN PEOPLE ARE EXPELLED

The wonderfully intriguing thing about fandom as a social phenomenon is that fandoms add to their source canon in so many ways, whether they’re happy about the way their source canon exists or not. The sheer number of alternate universes is staggering, and exciting, and that groups of people come together and expand on one particular AU and share art and fic and head canons… it just feels significant and surreal somehow. I know about the flowerboy!AU for Marco and Jean from Attack on Titan and I’ve never even seen the show, ditto with the otome edits for Free! I’ve seen around. I distinctly remember whole weeks where kid!lock covered my dashboard. I don’t know HOW many artists have illustrated the reverse!Pines AU for Gravity Falls, and I just spent four hours reading fic for the Transcendence AU for the same series. Ideas that one person came up with to twist a series they loved, and other people saw them and went “Yes, I want more of that, so I shall make more of that.”

The human drive to create narrative is absolutely astounding.

Wait

Yeah it’s not circular as you’ve been taught. It does revolve around the sun, but like every other star, the sun travels, and pulls us too. Fih-boe-nah-chi

and just where the fuck are we going

this gif and wondering where the sun is taking us is making me imagine all of the planets just like annoying the frick out of the sun. Like the sun is just going about its day and these fuCKIN planets are just like “hey sun” “hey sun” “hey where are we going sun” “hey sun”

Side Note To Fan Fic Authors

urdchama:

twobirdsonesong:

Here’s the thing.

I read a lot of scripts.  A lot.  From professionals to aspiring writers to complete newbies.  Features and pilots.  Specs and treatments.

And 8 times out of 10 the fan fic that I’ve read over the last, oh, 15 years is leagues better than this stuff.  It’s more inspired.  It’s more compelling.  It’s genre bending and creative and heartfelt.  It’s well-paced and intense and funny and sexy and meaningful.  It’s smart and thoughtful and good.  It’s novel-quality.  Better than, sometimes.

Rare is the script I don’t want to put down, but how often have we stayed up until 3am to get to the last chapter of a 100k fic? And it’s not even a fan fic author’s day job.  This is what they do on the side.  In their spare time.  For free.

So my point is, fan fic authors, you’re good.  You’re good writers and great storytellers.  I know it doesn’t always feel like it, especially if you’re one of the authors who’s not a BNF and doesn’t get the notes/hits that a few do.  And  because some people still view fic as “not real writing.” You guys know the shit that gets made into movies.  You’re better than that.  So be better than that.  If writing is what you think want to do, then just know you’re already doing it.   You’ve already started.

And you’re more talented than you might think.

And if you ever wonder how you stack up to people trying to break into the pro market, consider this quote from Teresa Nielsen Hayden, an editor with Tor Books. I attended a panel with her at WorldCon in 2004, where she said, “If you’re literate, coherent, and not crazy, you’re in the top 10% [of the slushpile].”

So if you’re a fanfic writer and you’ve always wanted to go pro, don’t hesitate, you’ve already got a leg up!

1000% accurate. I’ve seen all sorts of lame scripts in tv animation from “professional writers.” In fact, when a friend jokingly tried to give me a hard time for reading fanfic, I said “at least it’s better than our scripts.” We both just shook our heads and agreed

So thank you fic writers! You are great and greatly appreciated! \^_^/

(and if you’re looking at this and wondering “is she talking about me tho?” YES. I am talking about you. Thank you.)

So my school is putting on a production of Macbeth and not enough guys tried out so instead of having a girl play male Macbeth, our direction said, “Fuck it, we’re doing Lesbian Macbeth”

This is the best possible solution.

I most heartily approve of this because it is awesome.

This is why Rome won so many battles. Enemy spies would wait for them to read battle plans to themselves while mouthing the words; trouble was, they had learned not to!

Spoken language is still processed through the auditory sense and centers. Your brain cannot tell the difference between things you actually hear and things that you have only imagined hearing. Silent reading is imagining the sound of words being spoken. The big question, is what kind of voice do you hear reading the words? (I hear my own voice as it sounded when I was 5.)

^Which is also why if you are close to someone, you often imagine their voices as you read their text messages.

When I really KNOW a character I’m writing, especially for a fanfiction, I can hear a different voice for whatever lines I’m writing them. It’s really useful for me as a gauge for characterization, too. Like, for my Merlin fic, if I can hear Colin Morgan or Bradley James saying my dialogue, I’m good. It’s a useful judge of good writing for fic, too, as well as when I think I’m ready to break into a new fandom. If I can hear the actors say it, it’s that much more believable. 
I also process things best through words. When I think, I see my thoughts as words on a page or hear them as a voice saying things aloud. (Dreaming or memory recall is another thing—those are visual pictures—but just thinking is words.) I’m not really sure WHOSE voice I hear my thoughts in, though, because it changes a lot. As far as I can tell, it’s my own voice in normal circumstances, but there’s been more than one occasion when it ends up being someone else’s voice, especially when I binge-watch shows. I’ve had both Tennant!Doctor and Smith!Doctor narrate my thoughts, which leads to some pretty interesting vocal inflections and word choices… And at one point after watching a few episodes of Criminal Minds with my mom, she laughed because I was starting to talk like Spencer Reid, because I was starting to hear his voice narrating my thoughts. It’s weird to explain, I think. 
Does this happen to anyone else? Who narrates your thoughts?
