Ugh the friendships in this movie, i can’t. D:

jeanndarc:

steve and bucky’s friendship and intertwining character arcs are absolutely awesome and i LOVE it but like 

steve and natasha are so important/amazing?? when i watched the avengers the first time i didn’t pay much attention to their dynamic. and honestly i didn’t know she was going to be in cap 2 till i got there. but.. the way their friendship was done was just GREAT.

scarlett said: “This friendship is the catalyst that helps her to understand other events with Fury and helps her to understand what she wants because she’s probably never really asked herself that. That’s what we see more of developing; between the two of them is a friendship that allows her to be self-reflective.

that line just really struck a chord with me. “she’s probably never really asked herself what she wants.” now i don’t know a TON about nat’s backstory but i do know she’s spent a lot of time doing what she’s been told to do and carrying out orders. i’d bet that nat’s never really had a chance to even figure out who she really is. but then her friendship with steve that came to fruition during this movie. a lot of that is because they got backed into a corner with no one else to trust. fury presumed dead, pierce feeding steve lies about fury, shield turning on them. they fled together and almost died together. from that blossomed a trust: “would you trust me?” “i would now.” and now they wonder, together: “who am i, who are we, who are these people we’ve worked for? what do we want? and what are we going to do now?”

they were a team before, in the avengers. but it’s only after the explosion at the old shield base that they truly became partners.

and i don’t think partnership comes easy for natasha. she instinctually doesn’t trust. but there’s something about steve that pairs so well with her. she may be the most morally ambiguous of the avengers, but steve is the most morally sound. it may seem an odd combination, but it works brilliantly. because steve always sees the good in everyone, and more than that he forces them to see the good in themselves because he has so much faith in you. he treats natasha just the same. i think she is very aware about the bad parts of her, but he sees the best in her. it allows her to finally look at herself and figure out who she is and what she wants (and that’s exactly what happens - cos in the end, she exposes herself to the world, to save it. she’s thinking sO MUCH BIGGER than herself. cue my crying). anyway i’m not sure anyone has ever looked at natasha that way (save hawkeye, maybe, but the nature of their relationship is very different), and because of it, it allows them to become real, honest to god friends, with the intimacy of shared moments and traumas that no one else could understand. 

nat loves hawkeye, as we all know, but her blossoming friendship with steve was just so well written and so organic and gahh i just want them to take down ALL THE BADDIES TOGETHER

.. also, i really wouldn’t be opposed to a romance (“was that the first time you’ve kissed someone since 1945?” everything to me) but the friendship itself is just bRILLIANT AND I WANT MORE PEOPLE TO BE TALKING ABOUT IT

Emma, you’re playing the character of Gwen Stacy. According to comic books, she majored in Biochemistry. So, my question is this: In Biochemistry, what is an activated complex?

I feel that I have thrived here. Not because of who I am, but because of who I’ve come to know.

people find their paths in the strangest of ways.

SIGNAL BOOST THIS

thetalkingpoltergeist:

HEY. THERE’S A HUGE FUCKING PROBLEM AND ISSUE HAPPENING IN MY HOME COUNTRY RIGHT NOW.

THERE IS A REVOLUTION HAPPENING IN UKRAINE, RIGHT NOW, RIGHT THIS MINUTE. 

It’s been going on for months, but the build up has been going for YEARS. There are protests, and there are riots.

image

image

POLICE ARE RESPONDING VIOLENTLY. 

image

AS OF TODAY, THERE HAVE BEEN HUNDREDS INJURIES, AND THREE CONFIRMED DEAD.

What is this stemming from?

Ukraine as a whole nation is trying to join the EU. It is beneficial for the people. It is beneficial for the country. The catch is that they would have to implement lots of EU laws, standards, currencies, and regimes. 

This is predicted to bounce Ukraine up in terms of financial power, add economical power, geographical power (Ukraine has a lot of natural resources) and improve general life for the population.

Why is this being prevented? Short answer? Putin and Russia. 

image

Putin and several other supporters/like minded people want to establish a 2nd Soviet Union. It won’t be called that, but it would be basically a collection/group of ex-soviet like states, that would combine political, trade, and military power. 

The key to this success is Ukraine. Due to the reasons mentioned above - Ukraine has a lot of leverage on whether or not this could become the reality. 

Why isn’t Ukraine joining the EU happening?

Corrupt and pro-Russian prime ministers is why. Ukrainian officials are scared of Russian, because Russia more or less is threatening a take-over through force. 

The nation is also split, in terms of its people. Further West and North/West you have a stronger Ukrainian lineage/descent, and a stronger presence of the Ukrainian language. Due to the geographical location, they’re typically influenced by the EU further West.

The East and Southern Ukraine is more Russian, with Russian becoming a stronger prevalent language, and stronger ties to the ex-Soviet bloc and views on Russia. That was the case, although more of the country is agreeing in throwing off Russian oppression.

BACK TO THE RIOTS.

There had been a past revolution in 2004, called ‘the orange revolution’. This is more or less, is the start up and build up of this conflict. There have been laws since passed that prohibits and bans protesting of all forms. It is illegal to protest and illegal to wear gas-masks and protective gear. It is also illegal to cover the revolution, journalism that mentions it is ENTIRELY banned. This is censorship, and it is wrong.

Despite that, there have been MASSIVE protests, with gatherings up to 200,000 strong in Kiev. 

image

This revolutionary movement is literally more prevalent in the West, and Western cities/provinces. 

Revolutionaries are camped out in main squares of cities.

image

There are three leaders of the movement, nicknamed ‘Euromaiden movement’, and the movement and its leaders are being ignored by the government and officials. One of the leaders is a champion and well known international boxer, and plans to run for the next presidency, his name is Vitali Klitschko, and he is quoted as saying

"the government has betrayed the people", this is him between protesters and police, trying to stop the tension, he is sprayed by a fire extinguisher.

image

The prime minister had initially made moves to help Ukraine progress towards the joining of EU, and at a meeting in which paper work would have more or less secured it, back out of it - probably from fear of Russia’s involvement. 

ITS PEOPLE ARE IN DANGER. The riots are QUICKLY turning to violence.

image

Tear gas, MOLOTOVS ARE BEING USED. (link leads to footage of serious rioting, be warned)

image

THIS IS SERIOUS, AND IT’S HAPPENING NOW.

TWO OF THE EARLIER MENTIONED CASUALTIES ARE FROM GUNSHOT WOUNDS FROM RIOT POLICE/POLICE.

The protesters have built catapults to throw debris, and throw rocks back at shield walls of riot squads.

I DON’T KNOW HOW I CAN ADVISE YOU TO HELP, BUT I DO KNOW THAT THIS NEEDS TO BE KNOWN THAT THIS IS HAPPENING. RIGHT. NOW.

If you can contribute to this, and add more insight with information, more articles or links to footage, please do so! 

Слава Україні!

Slava Ukraini!
