I Dare You To Do Better.

I Dare You To Do Better.

Hey! My name is Alyssa. I collect comics. I cry over Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers and that's the short of it.
I like Marvel Comics, and Judge Dredd and I think the Star Trek ongoing comics are pretty rad.

I like Skulduggery Pleasant, SPN, LOTR, Hannibal, Star Trek, Marvel, and many, many more though I probably cry over Star Trek and Marvel the most.

I haven't yet found my calling in life but I might be the one to call upon it instead. But right now, it's pretty much crying over Bucky Barnes.

I kinda want to go into space. I collect quotes and my favourite poem ever is Desiderata by Max Ehrmann. My favourite bands are Queen, The Killers, OK Go, BBC, and Panic! At the Disco.
I can play the tenor horn, and I'm currently studying Physics and Spanish. Very strong feminist views.

And then in the future, everything changes. He’s been through it all, of course-watched humanity rediscover the heavens above them, watched them begin to wonder what’s out there. He cheered with the rest of the world when they landed on the moon, cheered as if he’d found Isla de la Muerta all over again, because there was something new. New treasure, a new horizon. But then they stop going, stop exploring, and he goes back to riding tankers across the rising seas. So he’s surprised when one day he wakes up from a night with his bottle of rum (his truest companion), and hears that there’s colonies on Mars now, and they need ships to supply them. He spends the next decade crafting new identities, learning all he can to qualify for the job, and after several tries (and even more faked deaths-this immortality thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in the age of the inerasable digital self) he gets it. The ships go nearly constantly now, the needs of the terraforming project creating an unbroken line of vessels from Mars to Earth and back again. “Show me that horizon,” he whispers to himself, his personal prayer of thanksgiving, each time they leave orbit, because the worlds, the stars are in motion and it’s never the same, with nearly three years for a round trip the ports are always different, even if they keep the old names. And finally one trip something goes wrong with the reactor, they’re too low on power and have to deploy the backups, and Jack (Lucky Jack, they call him, for he survives too many things he shouldn’t but science has yet to accept that maybe some things weren’t old wives’ tales after all) goes out for the spacewalk to bring up the solar panels. And as they rise, geometric patterns black against the sun’s glare, he’s struck by a powerful sense of déjà vu, because it’s all here-wind and sails, a ship beneath his feet and stars above his head, horizon in all directions. He wonders, for a moment, if the reason he’s still here is because the universe wanted a witness, to mourn the end of one age of exploration, and rejoice in the birth of the next.

pARISA ffff i need those tags for accuracy help me

he does that wince-frown two other times in the movie; later in this same scene

and earlier in the film, during the conversation with Pierce in the bank vault. Yeah. That frown he does after he goes “but I knew him”.

That expression was 100% Bucky Barnes.

I agree that it’s 100% a Bucky thing, but I don’t think this is an expression of uncertainty and self-doubt, as in ‘bucky doesn’t know what to say’. I actually think that’s more like the expression Bucky gets when he really wants something but is already bracing himself for refusal. He knows he won’t get what he wants, but he still asks because…who knows, right?

First when he kept repeating that he knew the man on the bridge with Pierce, he made that same face and it was obvious he was preparing himself for another blow because he knows he’s not allowed to ask. But at that moment, the need to know who the man was overrides the fear of disobeying and being punished.

Then here, he does that same face twice because he knows Steve and knows his friend won’t agree to impose himself on Bucky so easily. He still asks, though, and even tugs at Steve’s heartstrings by reminding him that their friendship is stronger than misplaced pride.

I prefer to think that it shows how even when he believes a situation to be hopeless, Bucky is the kind of man who won’t give up so easily.

i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u, beautiful.

That’s one of the most uplifting things I’ve read

This needs to get passed around more

Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example.

It honestly breaks my heart to think that somewhere in the world right now, Jennifer Lawrence (in addition to multiple other women) may very well be crying her eyes out because her privacy has been greatly compromised in one of the most awful ways possible. This is so fucking disgusting and whoever did this is a fucking low-life pig.
