rozf said: Do you have a favorite concert you've attended? If not, what's your ideal?

I…don’t really do concerts? Ever? I’ve never had even the slightest interest in them. Possibly because for the entirety of high school, the only band I gave a flying fuck about was the Beatles, so there was never any musician I wanted to see perform live. Broadway was my music fandom. I saw shows instead.

The only “concert” I’ve ever attended was seeing Jonathan Coulton perform live in a smallish venue in Chicago — that was great fun! But not my usual thing.

Don’t we all? :)

pepperywisdom said: SOMETHING RANDOM ABOUT MYSELF: I've gone to a bunch of different summer camps, but my favorite was definitely Whale Camp. Yes. It's actually called Whale Camp. You basically go to a tiny island in Canada and learn about whales and the ocean and go whale watching and it's great! Um. So I think that was suitably random.

THAT IS AWESOME. I want to go to Whale Camp!

M: This week, I discovered a terrible Earth disease called ‘loneliness’.

O: Do many people on Earth suffer from this illness?

M: Oh yes, sir. And how they suffer.

Real life is stressful, I’m in a weird mood, and I can’t focus on writing. So! Askbox is open!

…I mean, not like it’s ever not open, but right now I could use the distraction. Ask me anything! Or tell me something random about yourself!

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.

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.

Accepted as truth.

Goin’ my way?

I had both of them that afternoon, and I came to the conclusion that white boys are so delicious. That time back in my dance studio ranks as one of the most celestial experiences of my life. Those two beauties transported me to heaven. I never knew that lovemaking could be so beautiful.

She had a threesome with James Dean and Paul Newman? Whoa.

Damn Eartha.  Living the motherfucking life.

Whoa indeed

Hold up! Wait a minute. Jesus. This really happened?

If you ever need to watch Newman and Dean flirting like crazy, here’s the screentest they did together for East of Eden. It’s pretty spectacular. Good on you, Eartha!

Thanks! I love AUs in general, but you’re absolutely right about certain trends in the Charles/Erik fandom in particular — I don’t know what it is about Charles that people feel the need to woobify/infantilize, but man, it drives me nuts.
