Man, what would Bucky’s boggart look like after the brainwashing?
OH NO THIS HURTS.
Because there are stages of Bucky’s boggarts and ALL OF THEM ARE HORRIBLE.
Like at first, Steve getting hurt when Bucky can’t protect him.
But then after the experiments done on him, it starts to be the terrible things they’ve done to him, and the idea of going back there, getting tied back to the table without anyone to rescue him.
And after he starts coming back to himself, the boggart is him, and everything he did, and you can’t just cast riddikulus and undo all the deaths you’ve caused.
But probably the worst was when he was the Winter Soldier. He didn’t have enough of himself left to have any real fears. Because of that, Bucky Barnes is the only person who’s ever seen what a boggart truly looks like in their natural form.
This is beautiful and I don’t know what to do with it!
One of Our Own
Hey, Pretty Deadly fans!
Our friend Summer — who did the beautiful illustrations of Molly and Johnny that accompanied Chad’s prose stories in volume 1, issues 1 and 2, — was in a bad car accident last week and is now recovering in the hospital.
If you get a chance to drop her a line on Twitter and let her know we wish her well, I’m sure there’d be some good karma in it for you.
She’s here: https://twitter.com/UziSuzuki
Summer also did this lovely sketch of Carol as Binary. Get at her, Carol Corps.
um yeah i've sent in multiple asks about poc tommy n billy, i.e. i've had to send it in three times so if you're just ignoring it then yeah that's a shitty thing to do
I’m going to use this one as an example.
Firstly, I answer questions depending on whether I think it’s worth exposing the question’s answer to my followers. If you’re asking something very specific, it’s more likely I’d respond if you do it privately. Especially if the answer is “Not really my position to answer. I don’t write that book any more.” In short - if you need an answer about your own thing, ask from an account. If you’re worried about exposing your username widely, say please don’t publish publicly and I never will. I take this seriously.
Secondly, if it’s a question that involves a large degree of thought, I will have to put it off to find more time to answer it. Almost any diversity issue is serious business and i give it serious thought. I am so scarily busy, this may simply never happen. This is made even worse when - to repeat - it’s a book that I don’t even write any more.
Thirdly, I owe you nothing bar the work I’ve done and acting like I do is offensive. The word “entitlement” is thrown around a lot, but you thinking that I am some manner of word creature who has to drop everything else in the universe to service your slightest whims, and then act upset when I don’t.
I have work. I have family. I have friends. All are in hell, and all have dibs on my time above you.
To think otherwise is shitty. Don’t think that of me. Don’t think that of anyone.
"'I think we could, it’s a matter of when. It’s a matter of what are those dates, it’s a matter of juggling multiple, successful franchises. Is there a downside to managing multiple, successful franchises? I believe we’re figuring out that there is, which is having the time to do them all. So, at what point do we hold back a franchise or have three or four years between parts of a franchise in order to introduce new ones? Or do you introduce new ones within the body of the films? We’re looking at all those things right now.'"
Kevin Feige’s response when asked if Marvel is open to a Black Panther movie or a movie with a female lead.
Excuses. “Matter of when”, “matter of juggling franchises”. But it’s so easy to throw up Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy? One movie that nobody wanted and another movie that appears to have no connection at all to the current MCU? But as long as there are white male leads, you can make all the plans you want. Give me a break.
When will it ever be the precise, correct time for a blockbuster superhero movie with a black lead? Or a female lead? Or god forbid a woman of color? When?
