I’ve seen so many people write trio+Ginny are the reincarnated founders fic, and they always cast Ron as Gryffindor and Ginny as Hufflepuff.  I disagree with all of them.  Ginny is so clearly Gryffindor.  She’s brave and strong and brash and makes no sense as anyone other than Gryffindor.
Ron is a bit less clear, but I think he does make a surprisingly good Hufflepuff.  He struggled with loyalty and understanding others sometimes in his own life, but I do think those were qualities he valued a great deal.  No matter what happened between him and Harry, he always came back.  I also feel like he’d be a more nurturing and “motherly” parent with whoever he has kids with (whether you go with cannon where that is Hermione, or with other pairings).

I remember the first time I watched The Phantom Menace (I believe I was 10 or so at the time), I liked Jar Jar Binks because he reminded me of myself.  He was clumsy, spoke really awkwardly, and not many people liked him very much.  On my most recent rewatch, I could absolutely see why so many people hate Jar Jar, but I also still had a soft spot for him in my heart.  Even over a decade later, I am still clumsy and bad at social skills, and I just can’t find it in me to hate Jar Jar.  He’s totally useless as a character, but he tries.

I always find it a bit silly when people complain that Anakin in the Star Wars prequels was too whiny and not badass enough.  We know the guy ends up becoming Darth Sidious’s murder puppet.  He’s a terrifying villain to the galaxy and to Luke/Leia in the original trilogy, but that doesn’t change the fact that underneath that, he’s still just a puppet for Sidious.  Given that, it makes sense that he’d be easily manipulated.  I also rather like that it was his obsession with keeping Padme that brought about his fall to the Dark Side.  Too often we have the hero character who does horrible things in the name of a dead female “love,” who is absolved of all wrongdoings because of his ~feelings~.  In Anakin, we instead get a story about how it’s actually kinda fucked up and not cool at all to be willing to do anything to save just one person.
Dude was falling to the darkside and setting himself up to be the villain of the original trilogy.  He wasn’t supposed to be likable.  I’m frankly glad that he wasn’t the sort of “badass” that would have nerdboys falling all over themselves trying to justify how the Dark Side is so much cooler and better than the Jedi.  Some of them still do that anyway, but at least they can’t use the young Darth Vader in their arguments.

I just saw a soulmate AU where people had their soulmate’s last words instead of their first inscribed somewhere on their body, and
Can you imagine that with Stucky, where they both have something totally small and random like, “Goodnight,” on their skin?  And they grow up best friends and fall in love, and then absolutely refuse to live together or ever say goodnight to each other, because Steve is small and sick all the time and always getting in fights, and Bucky’s not exactly free of enemies with the way he’s always pulling Steve out of those fights.  So they figure, they know they’re soulmates, and as long as they never say goodnight they’ll never lose each other.
So when Bucky gets drafted and goes to war, a little part of him is relieved.  He can’t hear Steve say anything when the little punk is halfway across the world, so at least he knows they’ll both be ok.  Until, of course, the very not little punk shows up in Europe and rescues him.  And then they end up in an elite team of people chasing Hydra all over Europe, and their teammates start to look at them a little funny when they both constantly refuse to say goodnight to anyone unless the other isn’t around.
Then the train comes, and it’s terrifying and risky and ridiculous, but at least they haven’t said those words so they’ll still come out ok, right?  Until Bucky falls of the train, and Steve ends up trying to drink himself to death in a bombed out bar in London, hating himself for never considering that maybe Bucky wasn’t his soulmate, that maybe never telling him goodnight on those rare nights when they’d give in and curl up together, safe and warm in each other’s arms, didn’t save Bucky from anything at all.  And maybe Bucky wasn’t his soulmate, but that didn’t mean a damn thing because they loved each other as much as any two people could, and if that wasn’t important enough to be soulmates, then maybe the whole concept was crap anyway.
A few days later, Steve finds himself on a plane headed for an icy grave, and he thinks, fuck soulmates.  Who cares what his arm says, when he’s going to die and never meet the person anyway?  Or maybe he did meet the person, and it was some guy or girl that he never thought twice about, and now he knows why he’ll never see them again.  Either way, it’s not some faceless stranger telling him goodnight that he thinks about as he pushes the plane down towards the water.  Instead, he thinks about Bucky, and the fact that if Bucky’s not his soulmate, maybe they will get to see each other again, in death.
It never even occurs to him that maybe they’ll both wake up again.

Ok so yes Steve at Peggy’s funeral will no doubt be heartbreaking and sad but imagine at the reception he gets seated next to this eccentric 95 year old lady who starts telling all of these crazy stories about the shenanigans she and Peggy got up to in New York and Steve despite being really torn up can’t help but laugh cause he gets a glimpse of the Peggy he used to know, and when she’s done she turns to Steve and asks “So how did you know English?”

Imagine Bucky watching Steve fall for Peggy, and feeling like he’s been replaced, like he’s useless now.  He’d be so happy for Steve, and go off to drown his own sorrows out of the way.  That is, right up until he sees Peggy punch some asshole in the face for mouthing off to her.  In the resulting chaos of a bar brawl, Bucky realizes he’s not, in fact, been rendered useless by Peggy Carter.  To the contrary, Bucky now has two stupid idiots without a lick of sense between them to watch out for.

AU where someone gives Peggy Carter a version of the supersoldier serum shortly before she “dies” of old age.
Then throughout Cap3, every time Steve and/or Bucky are in danger, a mysterious masked stranger arrives to beat the crap out of all the bad guys and save their asses.  Near the end of the movie, Bucky finally catches her, rips off the mask, and, “Surprise!”
“Peggy?!”
“Yes, um, I know I’m supposed to be dead-”
“I mean, technically so am I.”
“Yes.  Well, I’m not dead.  As you can see.”
“Why didn’t you tell us?”
“You seemed like you had enough to be getting on with.”
“Christ, you’re almost as big an idiot as Steve.  And trust me, that’s saying something.”
“You wound me, Sergeant Barnes.  I’m sure I’m at least 20% less thick headed than Steve.”
“Sure Carter.  Whatever helps you sleep at night.”
And then they live happily ever after, because with those three together, they’d commit all the dumbest possible acts and go on the most dangerous possible missions, but they’d also watch out for each other and make sure none of them died.  Any bad guys who tried to come after them would learn pretty quickly just what a bad idea that was, too.

People are still saying that Howard Stark couldn’t have possibly loved Steve Rogers because they hardly spent any time together.  Um, you realize that CA:tFA took place over ~2years shoved into a 2 hour movie?  There’s plenty of Steve’s time in WWII that we didn’t see.  It’s entirely plausible that Howard Stark stayed close to the Howling Commandos, if for no other reason that to keep track of any tech they retrieved from the Hydra compounds they destroyed.  If you’re going to say he was a scientist who had no business being on the front lines, then it’s a comic book movie.  They don’t generally follow normal rules of logic, especially when it comes to having characters wherever the hell they want those characters to be to facilitate the plot, regardless of normal logical places for those characters to be.
It’s one thing to dislike Howard Stark and make your own headcannons that his love for Steve was just love for his own invention.  It’s another thing to say that your interpretation is more true and valid than the interpretation that Howard Stark is bisexual and loved Steve Rogers.  Agent Carter played his love in such a way that both interpretations are equally valid.  MCU cannon now says that Howard Stark loved Steve just as much as Peggy loved Steve, and that is all.  What form that love takes is up to the viewer to interpret as they wish for now.

I can’t believe I missed the news that Agent Carter got renewed for a second season.  This is what I get for being busy with school!
But Peggy’s moving to a new city and the only question I really care about now is: Will Angie still be there???

I wish more people wrote Hobbit fanfiction that stuck to the book rather than the movies.  I honestly thought the movies were rather terrible in quite a few respects.  There were too many orcs in the movies, and not enough silliness.  There were also way too many close calls and near death experiences and everything somehow simultaneously went really fast while also dragging on for ages.  When absolutely everything is a horrible near death experience full of orcs and danger and there’s never a moment to breath, it takes the impact out of all the orc encounters.  Eventually they just blend into each other and you start to feel like in any realistic sense all the characters would have been dead long before they reached the mountain.  It becomes boring and predictable.  The original book had plenty of danger, sure, but it was different and new dangers each chapter.  Additionally, dangers in the book were tempered by moments of safety and plans that actually worked and just time to breathe and travel and think.  The movies just felt like, “Here’s an orc, there’s an orc, everywhere you look’s another bloody orc!”

Can I just have a happy AU where Cartinelli and Stucky just hang out having fun and never being sad?  That’d be nice thanks.

I love political activist Steve Rogers headcannons, but I also love low key grumpy Twitter activist Steve Rogers.  This is a guy who doesn’t really like to share a lot about himself and prefers getting in fights to talking.  Steve Rogers is not a man of many words.
Which makes Twitter perfect for him.  Just imagine Steve Rogers learning about the 21st century and shoving the angriest, sassiest rants into less than 140 characters.  Imagine Steve Rogers starting a #BackInMyDay tag to fill it with the most passive aggressive shit he can come up with. 
#BackInMyDay homosexuality was illegal.  That didn’t stop me from loving Bucky then, and @FoxNews won’t stop me from loving him now.
#BackInMyDay poor people didn’t have health care.  That’s why I’m so lucky I lived long enough to be #CaptainAmerica.
#BackInMyDay people were really racist.  #TheseDays, people are just as racist.  In case you were wondering.

You know what really bugs me about Steve's vision in AoU including Peggy but not Bucky?  Joss Whedon said he didn’t want people who hadn’t seen CA:tWS to be confused by bringing Bucky into AoU, but even if tWS hadn’t happened, it still would have made plenty of sense for Bucky to be in his Vision of Sadness!  This is the guy who went on a one man suicide mission in to the middle of enemy territory just on the off chance that Bucky might be alive in tFA.  The guy who dove a plane into the ocean just days after his best friend fell to his (presumed) death.  Steve and Bucky were supposedly childhood best friends for years and years before they went to war, and then continued to be best friends on the battlefield. 
Anyone who knows that Peggy was Steve’s not-quite-girlfriend should be well enough aware of the fact that Bucky was his best friend.  In addition to that, I’d think Bucky would represent going home after the war to Steve a little more than Peggy, since Steve didn’t even meet Peggy until after he had gone to war.  Whedon could have even had both Bucky and Peggy in that vision.  Steve clearly cared a great deal about both of them, and it would have been a perfectly good nod to tWS without needing to see tWS to still get an emotional impact from it.  Instead, we got no Bucky, which makes zero sense at all for anyone who has watched tWS.

I want more non-binary Gimli in the world.  The fact that I never see non-binary Gimli makes me sad.
I want more non-binary dwarves in general, but specifically I want more non-binary Gimli.
