A few things I wanna talk about:
Steve buying Bucky the softest things he can find because Bucky’s been living with harsh and cold for so long
Bucky in soft, oversized sweaters with a messy bun
Bucky lunging in cozy sweatpants and feeling safe enough to doze on Steve’s couch
Bucky borrowing Steve’s sweaters and making breakfast in the morning
i love that barrowman’s response also distances him from the contestant
"hahahaha women do laundry right john? you with me, john?"
"don’t lump me in with you, you fucking martian”
This is what I’m talking about when I keep saying that men have to deny the endorsement. This guy wanted Barrowman’s tacit support or agreement for his sexism, as part of bonding through humour. John went nope.
Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
"And so to bed. I put on my headtorch, spray myself from head to toe with Jungle Formula insect repellent, brush my teeth, say hello to the five huge spiders sharing a room with myself and Luke, slip into my mosquito net and close my eyes.” (from Tom’s Guinea field diary day 2)

The other day I had a really good idea for a story:
A high school Shakespeare club angrily splits into two groups when they can’t agree on the correct interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. One group thinks it’s a cautionary tale about the stupidity of youth and shallow lust; the other group think it’s a beautiful tragedy about poisonous hatred conquered by love. Reconciliation seems impossible-
-then a person from one group falls in love with a person from the other
Okay this has 99k notes why isn’t this a book yet?
99K??? Bloody hell.
Now seems as good a time as any to say that (I say it very cautiously, but what the hell)…I am pretty confident you’ll be seeing this book sometime in the near future. Y’see, for the past six months or so, I’ve been frantically trying to sell this, my beloved post-zombie-apocalypse tale, best described as The Hunger Games meets The Handmaid’s Tale meets World War Z with healthy lashings of Mysterious Pasts, ponderings on the nature of oppression and agency, and a giant squid. Actual literary agents - people who know what they’re doing, unlike me - have gotten back to me about it and said similar things: they like it but dystopian YA is very, very hard to sell right now.
But some of them have told me, okay, write something else in a different genre and we’ll see what we can do. So- That Romeo and Juliet Thing (working title) is coming along surprisingly fast. There’s a plot! There’s themes! There’s character development! And I feel like I’m jinxing it just by saying these words-
-but I am geniunely optimistic that one day not too far from now you’ll be holding that spur-of-the-moment text post in your hands…as a actual book.
