I do not remember sending this. I suspect it was around the same time I was amusing demoiselledefortune and mygrizzlysavant with my tipsy shenanigans.

to hell with your boys of summer. I only want soldiers. from winter.

But flatbear

No Bucky on the road,
No Bucky on the beach,
I see him on that train,
His hand just out of reach,
Empty bases, empty streets,
Sometimes I feel so alone,
I drive by our old houses,
Though I know you’re not home,

But I can see you,
Metal arm shining in the sun,
You got your hair messed up and,
Eyeliner on,
And I can tell you my love for you will still stay strong,
After those agents from SHIELD are all gone,

I never will forget that day,
I wonder if it was a dream,
Remember how I couldn’t reach you?
Remember how you fell and screamed?
Now I don’t understand how you survived,
But Bucky I’ll get you back,
We’ll show them what we’re made of!

And I can see you,
Metal arm shining in the sun,
You got your hair messed up and,
Eyeliner on,
And I can tell you my love for you will still stay strong,
After those agents from SHIELD are all gone,

Out on the road today, Sam saw a HYDRA sticker on a Cadillac,
A little voice in my head said “Cut off one head and two grow back”,
I thought I knew what truth was,
What did I know?
Nick & Nat have gone to Europe,
I should just let them go, but…

I can see you,
Brass buttons shining in the sun,
You just looked so proud with your,
Uniform on,
And I can tell you my love for you; it still lives on,
I’ll bring you back and we’ll be so strong.

I really think you're taking the casting of the Maximoff twins way too personally. I'm sure Joss Whedon wasn't out to offend you when he made his decision. He wanted two young fresh up and coming actors who already had Hollywood acclaim and that is understandable.

alogicals answered:

hey pal, fuck you.

joss whedon probably wasn’t out to offend me personally, no, but guess what butterplum, he did anyway.

because i grew up in a neighbourhood where the other parents told their children they weren’t allowed to play with me because i was dirty and untrustworthy and a thief.
because i had ethnic slurs hurled at me from my fellow students and other residents throughout the majority of my life. because the german word for gypsy was spraypainted onto our house wall 8 times throughout the years we lived there and, on one memorable occasion, keyed into my mum’s car.
because my mum’s mother died in a russian concentration camp and no one would help her father raise his five daughters alone because everyone viewed him as waste, expendable.
because my mother eventually had to fend for herself on the streets as an orphan when she was only 13 years old because she had literally no other choice. because she was mistreated in the orphanage she eventually went to, and because she was thrown out of three schools for “misconduct” that was really just profiling based on the fact that she had roma heritage.
because even though she managed to leave that part of her life mostly behind and found a family and get a job, her sisters weren’t so lucky. one of them permanently ended up in a mental institution after being denied healthcare by the country she lived in due to her heritage and her psychosis grew unchecked until it evolved into fullblown schizophrenia. one of them killed herself. she hasn’t heard from the other two in years and isn’t even sure if they’re alive anymore.
because 90% of roma people live in poverty. because 45% of those fall under extreme poverty with living conditions without water and electricity and basic things like food. (x)

so yes, i take it personally. because it is fucking personal.
the maximoffs were literally the only representation of romani people i’ve encountered so far that weren’t either a stereotype or a criminal. the fact that they were allowed to be heroes and stand for positive ideals despite their background was revolutional for me when i first learned about them, because my entire life i’ve been made to feel that being roma is bad and disgusting.

it’s bad enough that wanda maximoff was already turned into an ableist joke and fridged twice in the comics.

and joss whedon looked at their background history and how hugely important it is for minorities and deemed it not important enough to be included.
that’s especially horrible considering the fact that not only are roma people treated like scum everywhere, anti-semitism is still very much a constant threat to jewish people everywhere and anti-semitic hate crimes are on a rise.

the fact that joss whedon didn’t even waste one thought on the repercussions of his decision when he retconned the maximoff twins to be british is frankly disgusting and speaks volumes about the kind of person he is.
and if you look at his decision and find absolutely nothing wrong with it, then it speaks volumes about the kind of person you are, too.

Just want to add one comment:  I’m tired of the “he just wanted to give young up and coming actors a chance” excuse.  

I probably shouldn’t say this - I get enough hate mail as it is - but did anyone perhaps think that the casting had everything to do with studio deals and movie rights and Marvel Studios NOT BEING ABLE to use ANY FUCKING BACKSTORY OF THE TWINS?

Everything about who they are is tied up in the X-Men rights. Their ethnic background, their parents, their past, it’s all way over at Fox Studios, and Marvel has no rights to use any of that info.

Don’t get me wrong, I am angry. I have partially Jewish background, and I have wonderful Romani friends (and students, ALWAYS a shoutout to my kids), and it’s a huge disappointment to me that they had a chance and they DIDN’T FUCKING TAKE IT, BECAUSE REPRESENTATION MATTERS.

But I’m at the same time aware that practically every bit of information that makes Wanda and Pietro who they are legally belongs to Fox Studios. What Marvel has is the ability to use the names Wanda and Pietro, tell us what their powers are (but not where they come from), and make them Avengers. Everything else is too tied up with the X-Men mythology, and is pretty much a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Additionally, as much as it pains me to say, Wanda and Pietro being of Jewish/Romani background is not even relevant in every MARVEL COMICS VERSION of these characters. Look at their Earth-1610 counterparts: they’re straight-up white Canadian.

That being said, DON’T even get me started on how much I LOATHE the direction they took the DoFP Pietro in. FOX STUDIOS, YOU HAVE THE FUCKING RIGHTS TO PIETRO’S LIFESTORY, AND YOU’RE GIVING ME EVAN PETERS, I AM SO PISSED, JFC.

Please don’t think this is hate mail, as it’s not; just a clarification. According to Kevin Feige, none of your assumptions are correct. The ONLY things they can not do with MCU Wanda & Pietro are call them mutants or indicate they’re Magneto’s kids. There’s no rights issue or legal barrier to prevent them being of Roma descent, whatsoever.

It’s a conscious choice, made by Whedon. It’s really as simple as that.

Anya and Stella take Wondercon!

There is that surreal moment when Kelly Sue Deconnick recognizes your daughter from Tumblr and calls her and her sister to the front of the line to take a photo — but I’m ahead of myself.

We decided to take the girls to Wondercon for spring break this year. We haven’t gone since it left San Francisco, but as the girls’ fandom has grown we thought they would enjoy a “real” con.

As they walked the floor, they got a lot of nice complements on their costumes. Carol Corps members in particular sought out Stella and got their pictures taken with her, proving once again that they are the best fans in fandom.

We were in line to get some of our Captain Marvel / Pretty Deadly books signed when Kelly Sue spotted Stella and recognized her from her photos on the Internet. Stella ran over and gave her a high five. Kelly Sue gave both the girls Carol Corps dog tags and came around the table to take a photo with them.

In all she was every bit as cool and nice in person as she had appeared to be in print and on the Internet. The girls were super happy and I was so glad that I was able to share with them some of the best of what the comic book community has to offer. 

Thanks to everyone who politely asked to take my girls’ photos and also to those who stopped to allow the girls to take their photo.

They had a wonderful time, and as a result, so did I.

You done good, Mom and Dad!  They’re awesome girls and I am SO GLAD they had a positive introduction to the comics community.
