Steve ‘did it hurt - a little’ Rogers

#/SCREAMS ABOUT HOW SKINNY!STEVE’S CHRONIC PAIN PROBABLY FUCKED UP HIS PERCEPTION OF PAIN FOR LIFE  #STEVE ROGERS ‘OKAY YEAH THAT’S UNPLEASANT’ WOULD PARALYSE ANYONE ELSE  #AND THAT’S NOT THE SERUM  #THAT’S SKINNY STEVE THROUGH AND THROUGH   (via beccabuchanans)

Don’t even start me on the fact he’s spent his whole life trying not to make a big deal of when he’s ill. He doesn’t want pity or sympathy. He doesn’t wanted to be treated like he’s weak. He doesn’t want to be looked down on because ‘he can’t take it’.

You only ever hear Steve Rogers scream once, and when he thinks people think he’s being weak, he stops and never screams again. Not unless you count the moment he sees Bucky fall to his death.

You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.

Opinion time!

I’m very seriously considering getting an ear cartilage piercing (specifically a helix piercing on the right side) in the near future. Does anyone have any opinions on or experiences with this matter that they want to share?

  • Loki: Mind control is just one form of conquest. I could summon the armada and take this world by force!
  • Thor: Well, you could do that. Yeah, you could do that. Of course you could. But why? Look at these people, these human beings. Consider their potential! From the day they arrive on the planet, blinking, step into the sun, there is more to see than can ever be seen, more to do than—no, hold on. Sorry, that's The Lion King. But the point still stands. Leave them alone!

Yeesh… friendly reminder we literally had a blizzard last week. XD BUT STILL NOT COOL (or too cool, as the case may be).

My apologies; I should’ve added in the tags, “Boston is freezing. But at least it’s not where Red lives! Where Red lives is ridiculous”

On the other hand, you are more or less voluntarily living in a place with utterly wacky weather. I signed up for a lovely New England fall, not what folks in my Virginia hometown would consider winter in September.

And I most definitely did not move to Canada, so pfft.

  • Natasha: How did you find out?
  • Steve: We've worked together for a while now. I'd like to think I know you pretty well. Plus, Bucky butt-dialed me last night.
  • [Steve holds up his phone]
  • Natasha: [over phone] Okay, okay, and this is how Roza Shanina would kiss.
  • Bucky: [over phone] Whoa, Roza likes the tongue. Show me Valentina Matviyenko again.
  • Natasha: [over phone] Okay, lay down...
  • [Steve puts his phone away]
  • Natasha: Please tell me you hung up before Catherine the Great.
  • Steve: Unfortunately not.

The Scottish Declaration of Independence, April 6th 1320

The Declaration of Arbroath was made in the form of a letter, composed in Latin and submitted to Pope John XXII in the year of 1320. Its purpose was to get the pope to acknowledge Robert the Bruce as the country’s lawful king, to assert Scotland’s status as an independent, sovereign state and to defend Scotland’s right to use military force when unjustly attacked. It was most likely drafted in the scriptorium of Arbroath Abbey by Abbot Bernard on behalf of the nobles and barons of Scotland. Eight earls and about forty barons attached their seals to the Declaration. The following is one of its most popular excerpts:

"As long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours, that we are fighting, but for freedom - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself."

The Declaration of Arbroath represents the founding of the Scottish nation and it has been credited as being part of the inspiration for the American Declaration of Independence.
