Soviet space propaganda posters, 1958-1963
“I am happy - this is my work joining the work of my republic”
“Soviet man – be proud, you opened the road to stars from Earth!”
“We will open the distant worlds!”
“Glory to the Fatherland of Heroes!”
“We were born to make the fairy tale come true!”
“Socialism is our launching pad”
“Fatherland! You lighted the star of progress and peace. Glory to the science, glory to the labor! Glory to the Soviet regime!”
“Through the worlds and ages.”
“In the name of peace and progress!”
i am in love with two people. one is you. the other one is also you, but from an alternate timeline with dragons.
The posts that pop up during finals week are the best kinds of posts
Interviewer: There’s that moment in the movie where I was almost expecting Bucky to not follow Steve-to say that he’s a guy who always goes too far.
Yeah, I think there’s an element of being a little pissed off. I just escaped a god damn chamber where a guy is torturing me with things and now I’ve got to go back because you want to go back? Because you’ve got a fancy costume on now? That’s great, but I think there’s also a natural element of: I’m lucky to survive these battles and suddenly you come in and you save an entire platoon of people. And now you come in and you’re being hailed as The Guy. You take all this credit for it. But Bucky’s like, “It’s you and I care about you—of course I love you.” But again it forces Bucky to think, “What’s it all worth? What am I fighting for?”"
December 3, 2013: Andrew Shaw gets into an intense fight off the faceoff with Roussel for "taking liberties with Patrick Kane" in the previous game, not stopping even after his sweater went over his head. Kaner later thanks him with a headpat on the bench.
Avengers Annual #1 (2013)
so, uh, where i have them in my nanowrimo (2012 edition, hamlet 1950s americana style, for those of you unaware) is between iii.2 and iii.4; the play-within-a-play is performed in a movie theater in chicago, A Lot Of Things Happen, and then hamlet and horatio end up making out in the restroom of a diner in texas, it’s. a long story
but in cal shakes hamlet iv. 3 (for which i am in Eternal Mourning of the WHY THE FUCK WAS IT NOT RECORDED type) hamlet’s continually evading the “where is polonius’ body” question— “at supper”, “a man may fish with the worm”, “in heaven”, etc etc— and claudius is just getting more and more fed up
and then claudius signals to one of his men
and his man points a gun at horatio’s head
and horatio drops to his knees.
and hamlet says, faster than you’ve ever heard anyone say anything, “but if you find him not within this month, you shall nose him as you go up the stairs into the lobby!”
so i think that’s the moment hamlet would realize— holy shit! holy shit!! holy shit, holy shit, this is!!! a thing!!!! oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck
cal shakes ALSO has a moment, at the end of that scene, where hamlet’s like “come, for england!” and beckons horatio forward to join him as he exits, and i think claudius’ men actually hold horatio back? either that or claudius gives hamlet a Significant Look, like, no and hamlet just has this moment of completely heartbroken oh before he turns and flounces offstage
so i think what i’d do is steal that blocking whole, and at the very end, just before hamlet leaves, have horatio— touch hamlet’s arm? like, this is the way it has to be, i know it’s fucked, we’re fucked, i am still your best friend, i will love and stand by you even when we are not physically together, leave me here to die, etc
and you can tell— they want to kiss! they should be kissing! this is a Kiss Moment! but. they are in front of Hella People. so.
and then they’re both very Sad and Kkl;fdksjfkl for the rest of act iv, then when they meet back up in act v there is a moment of total hesitation, and then
makeouts. makeouts. makeouts. so many makeouts. makeouts for the rest of the play. no one is stabbed or poisoned. no one dies in anyone else’s arms. there are just makeouts. shut up. go away. i’m so fucking
yeah, that’s how i’d do it, i think.
