Can I just say that one of my very favorite parts of Winter Soldier was Nick Fury cocking an eyebrow at the police officers side-eyeing his expensive vehicle and sneering, “You wanna see my lease?”

Because the idea of Nick Motherfucking Fury having to deal with shit as disgusting and petty as racial profiling is sort of painfully realistic and heartbreaking.  He’s hugely, massively powerful, and he’s sitting in his bulletproof car pondering decisions of worldwide import, but also he gets pulled over sometimes and asked for his registration because the police assume he stole it.  

Ack.  I was just so pleased that they included that line.

yeah the import of that really struck me the second time I watched the movie.

The driving while black bit was one of my favorite parts.

Yeah, this really struck me the second time when I wasn’t just sitting there terrified his car would blow up at any moment. It really makes you think of all the shit he had to go through to get where he is today and still the police give him the side eye when he drives up in an expensive car. Also, obviously we find out later they’re HYDRA agents but the car chase scene is literally a bunch of white guys in police uniforms shooting at a single black man and it’s an image we’ve seen a million times (on the news, in the movies, even on Agents of Shield with Mike Peterson) only this time the police are the bad guys and we’re rooting for Nick. I just thought, especially in the context of scene preceding it where it’s made clear that Nick’s had to deal with racism and profiling that it was a interesting choice to make HYDRA the police.

This post is golden and I thought the same thing as well.

Until you find out that the police were HYDRA, you really thought it was a situation where they were eying Fury suspiciously because it was a black man driving a nice SUV in Washington D.C. aka the ‘driving while black’ issue.

And you aren’t made to feel like you’re paranoid because he thought that too.

Shit happens so many times it’s ridiculous and that was a great scene because it reminds you that racial profiling of black men/people still exists no matter how much money or power the black person in question has.

Nick Fury knows where he stands both inside and outside of S.H.I.E.L.D. and he knows his Level 10 clearance does nothing for him when he’s driving next to DC police. And a black dude running from a bunch of white “cops” in an expensive looking car? Yea no, as if any random person on the street would see that and think Fury was in the right in that situation. Genius move on HYDRA’s/Pierce’s part.

Really glad they slid that in there.

Watch the ultimate X-Men ensemble in this explosive final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer now!

There’s A LOT to love here, but my first takeaway is: I love McAvoy’s Charles voice so much. Can I just have an audio file that compiles everything McAvoy!Charles says in both movies? Imagine falling asleep to that. *___*

I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

I LOVE MY FANDOM

I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS BAR

NYC-area geeks!

kaydeefalls:

SO. In the past year I’ve become very active with a large social group called the Gay Geeks of NY (like, I’m on their board now and it’s eating up ALL OF MY FREE TIME but in a good way, that’s how active). We host geek-themed events on an absurdly regular basis, and in particular, we hold GEEK TRIVIA once a month. WHICH IS AWESOME FUN. Sci-fi, fantasy, comics, gaming, horror, anime — all brands of geekdom are well represented. And this month, I’m the one running the damn thing, along with a friend of mine. And I thought it would be even more awesome if a few of my online fandom friends also showed up. Because I wrote more than half of the questions, and we’re devoting an entire category to fandom itself.

HERE’S THE INFO.

Gay Geeks of NY GEEK TRIVIA
This Sunday, April 13, from 5:30-8:30pm
@ the LGBT Center (208 W 13th St, Manhattan)

ALL ARE WELCOME, assuming you’re in the NYC area and can physically get here. LGBTQ + straight allies (seriously, you don’t have to be queer-identified in any way to participate). It’s four rounds of geeky trivia of increasing difficulty on a wide range of fandoms, from Captain America to Narnia to Final Fantasy to Star Trek and beyond, and you know I’ve made sure my favorite fandoms are all represented somehow. For this month, we’re randomizing the teams, so everyone’s going to be meeting new people. And honestly, while I love this group dearly, it’s still very dude-heavy, so I’d love a bit more female representation among the ranks. :) The cost is a grand total of $5 (which just covers our expenses hosting the event, it’s not for profit). There are always a stupid amount of unhealthy snacks, and probably everyone present will be geeking out over the Winter Soldier movie between rounds. Come on by! Bring a friend! Bring lots of friends! Reblog this post! And we always go out drinking at a nearby bar afterwards, but the Center itself is alcohol-free (so under-21s are welcome).

The link above directs you to the facebook event page — feel free to join up and invite anyone you like. It’s my first time hosting the trivia, so I’m a bit nervous. And I feel like I’ve spent the past few weeks doing nothing but writing trivia questions. Come and curse my name! Or rejoice because we share all the same fandoms and you wind up winning the grand prize! :D

"…if you’d look at how he related to everyone — Coulson loves projects. Here is a guy who didn’t have people skills. So Garrett says, can you help this guy Ward round off some of the rough edges? So he comes onto the team. Coulson is now vested, because he’s got a project. Who is Ward’s greatest threat? May. What does he do? He seduces her. Who is the one unknown on the team? Skye. He becomes her S.O. How do you get everyone rally around and trust you? You jump out of a plan trying to save someone else. Now, he had a parachute. Let’s say he failed to save Simmons, he would’ve been fine. Everything he’s done has solidified how people feel about him over the course of the season." 

"…what was the next thing he had to do after he saved Simmons? He had someone on the plane who was jealous of him: Fitz. And what did they do? They went on a mission together and they had a really good time together. And a bromance was started. And that took care of that." x

"…then in "Seeds," there’s a really nice moment where Skye is standing at the wall of valor, and we hear Coulson’s voice off-camera saying that the world is full of evil, pain, lies and death — and the camera pans and lands on Ward when he says "lies" and "evil."" x

Anonymous asked: can you do some drama queen sirius headcanons pretty please

turtletotem:

feministsirius:

here are some actual canon drama queen sirius moments (note that some of these are also actually just very sad):

  • i’m on the run but here let me send letters to really obvious locations, like where harry potter is and where remus lupin lives (probably), using enormous tropical non-native birds
  • i promise i’m innocent but i’m going to drag your best friend past this tree that punches people and accidentally break his leg and then when you all follow him i will explain NOTHING until forced to by remus lupin. explanation time? no. HUG TIME
  • harry needs help? i am on my way, i will live in this cave and eat rats with my hippogriff, no there is no other option
  • god rest ye merry hippogriffs
  • literally any interaction with molly weasley, ever
  • girl look at me during exams? nO I AM FLIPPING MY HAIR AT REMUS LEAVE ME ALONE, did u like question 10 moony

here are some I made up but believe are fully plausible:

  • the inevitability of sirius threatening to never speak to anyone ever again whenever he fights with james or remus
  • "don’t touch my FUCKING hair"
  • flouncing from the room in a huff whenever marauder’s map planning wasn’t going smoothly
  • fury about snape getting a better grade than him in potions for d a y s 
  • "I told you NOT TO TOUCH MY FUCKING HAIR"
  • younger sirius starts a lot of angry sentences “I cannot BELIEVE that” or “I am just in AWE of” totally sarcastically
  • "james you clearly don’t care about me AT ALL"
  • every even minor illness resulting in him whimpering in a ball on his bed, begging somebody to get him a cold wash cloth or a hot cup of tea, soothed only by remus sitting there and gently petting him
  • "NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME OR MY PAIN"
  • grandiose gifts that are not necessarily physical objects but things like filling the dorm room with enchanted rose petals that sing love songs at james on valentine’s day and charming the inside of Remus’ four-poster to look like his ideal reading nook for two hours so that he can have some peace and quiet during finals 
  • and sirius is obviously the king of dramatic entrances. he comes down to breakfast and whips his robes around and is like, “pass the sausages” very gravely. he saunters into transfiguration class ten minutes late just as frank longbottom accidentally blows something up. he enters the quidditch pitch by standing on his broom and bowing. he and remus have the dorm room all to themselves one weekend and when remus leaves for ten seconds and comes back in he’s pin-up posing on the bed naked.

but i also think he does this to be funny sometimes, such as:

  • literally descending from the ceiling in a cloud of mist into mcgonagall’s classroom
  • perfecting his ability to whip his hair around and gasp simultaneously in a rage like a thwarted soap opera villain
  • perfecting the ability to magically instantaneously grow a handlebar mustache that he can then twirl while remus describes prank plans
  • performing spells with a truly unnecessary amount of flourishing during practical lessons or demonstrations
  • "how DARE you reach across me to get a biscuit, peter. how DARE. YOU."
  • changing his accent based on what’s being discussed or who he’s talking to in a group — if Remus is grumpy or upset he starts talking to him in the poshest accent he can muster, if James is being The Worst he starts talking to him like a bad interpretation of Dickens hero

When I got to the singing rose petals I knew I had to reblog this.

There’s no time travel in the new X-Men film—this is how they communicate with 1973.

I’m glad older Magneto has realized little derbies are better than that helmet.
