    nocticola asked: Charles Gunn

    How I feel about this character: Favorite character on the show; one of my very favorite characters in the Buffyverse.

    All the people I ship romantically with this character: Hello, my friend, my co-mod of @fuckyeahfredgunn ! My only romantic ship for Gunn is Fred/Gunn, although I’ve read plenty of fic with him in other romantic relationships. The latter is partly because I’ve read literally just about all the Fred/Gunn fic there is (there isn’t that much, especially considering this romance is canon and they weather upheavals and date for like a year on the show, and canonically continue to have feelings for each other in s4 even after that) and watched all the Fred/Gunn vids I know about (very few).

    My non-romantic OTP for this character: Anne and Gunn. I also love the friendship that Gunn, Wesley, and Cordelia develop in s2.

    My unpopular opinion about this character: Just one? A few quotes from @nevertravelled , who loves Gunn… “charles gunn is the best. haters flat-out did not watch the show.” “HIS LAST WORDS WERE LITERALLY THE ONLY THING THE SHOW HAS EVER BEEN ABOUT, EVER.” “If your thing, like mine, is stoic warrior dudes with a bad sense of humor and you don’t like Charles Gunn, you are doin’ it wrong.” Again, he’s my favorite character on the show. Fred/Gunn is my AtS OTP.

    One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: Just one? I wish the narrative hadn’t made him give up his old crew to continue to work as part of Angel Investigations. I wish he had a substantive and foregrounded arc on the show besides the one in s5, which is a pretty racist storyline. I briefly tried to think of another way of saying that, but nah. I wish he and Fred, and Gunn and Illyria, had more interaction in s5 and we actually knew how much the mindwipe impacted Fred and Gunn’s memories of their relationship. Fred died still mindwiped; it really burns, to me, that Angel, Illyria, Wesley, and Connor all knew the original pre-mindwipe timeline sooner or later, but Gunn never did on the show. (I haven’t read much of the comics and don’t consider them part of my canon, even though I am still occasionally interested in them; part of what makes canon is the actors’ performances.) Oh, and Gunn totally doesn’t die after “Not Fade Away.” That’s really important to me. He lives and he continues making a difference for the better, and he never ever forgets anyone he’s loved.

    wine tastes so bad. I’m convinced the whole world is in on an inside joke together trying to persuade me that wine tastes good to them. there’s no way any one can like the taste of it. it’s like bug spray. the whole frickin world pretends to like bug spray. I don’t understand why. stop the madness

    wine is an acquired taste. if you don’t like it, acquire some taste

    Get cereal, Tony says.

    Get healthy cereal, Steve says.

    Pop-Tarts, Thor says.

    Fuck it, this is the one Tasha likes.  MOVING ON.

    headcannon accepted

    This is sweet.

    "Let me save you time," Tony adds after Steve chimes in. "All commercial brand cereals have the same sugar content—Trix to Honey Nut Cheerios. I know," he nods, glancing at the group. "They mix in some wheat into Honey Nut Cheerios to trick you into thinking it’s more healthy. Congratulations you’ve been betrayed, if you care. Personally, I don’t, I like Lucky Charms. But if you want semi-healthy you want off-brands with nuts and grains and dried processed fruits, and even then, they’re not all that healthy. You want healthy, grind your own homegrown oatmeal and cook it on the stove instead of in the microwave."

    Clint stares at him for what feels like an entire minute before Thor reiterates, “Pop Tarts.”

    "Or get Pop Tarts," Tony agrees with a light shrug. "They’ve got at least three times the sugar of commercial cereals. And they’ve got those little sprinkles on top. God I love those."

    "I’ve been to the grocery store," Steve says, eyes distant, a man who’s seen too much in his time. "There are hundreds of kinds of salad dressing. Cereal boxes in every color and kind.”

    "Cocoa Puffs," Natasha says before she walks away, done with the conversation.

    "Pop tarts," Thor corrects. "Tony is right. Their sprinkles make me happy."

    "Says the man with the metabolism of a God," Bruce snorts. 

    "You ate ten boxes of Pop Tarts last week."

    "I was also huge and green and couldn’t die if I ate ten boxes of nuclear waste."

    Bruce cocks his head at Thor. “Just because we’re working on a similar metabolism doesn’t mean it’s good for humanity.”

    "Wow you two just G.I. Joe special messaged this thing into a whole other realm," Tony comments.

    "What’s G.I. Joe?" Thor and Steve ask in unison.

    Clint cuts out then, and fuck, why is it his week to buy groceries? Yeah, they all have to go through it, but it’s only week three of all of them trying to live together.

    He grabs a cart, wheels through the grocery store, and he’s got a list that mostly guides him, but fuck them all, they’re right. Making choices in the face of all the ones he’s presented with seems impossible. Grocery shopping wasn’t one of the skills he learned in his field—he’s an order out or eat at a restaurant type of guy.

    He contemplates cereal boxes for all of twenty seconds before it’s too much and grabs a box of Cocoa Puffs.

    It’s Natasha’s favorite. Good enough.

    The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

    She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

    The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

    For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

    "I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

    I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

  • Three dead in Kansas Jewish center shootings 

    ashkenazi-autie:

    Three people were reported dead on Sunday in a possible anti-Semitic shooting attack at two buildings serving the Jewish community near Kansas City.

    A gunman opened fired in the parking lot of the Overland Park Jewish Community Center and the nearby Village Shalom retirement home, both in the Kansas City suburb.

    "At around 1 p.m. today, Overland Park police received multiple calls regarding a shooting on the campus of the Jewish Community Center, 5801 W. 115th Street. Additional calls were received by police of another shooting at the Village Shalom Retirement Community, 5500 W. 123rd," according to the Overland Park Police Department.

    “Three victims are confirmed deceased. A person of interest has been taken into custody at this time,” the police spokesman said.

    CNN reported that the deceased included a teenager and an elderly woman.

    During the initial developing story, a spokeswoman for Overland Park Regional Medical Center said the hospital was treating a 14-year-old male who suffered a gunshot wound and who was in critical condition.

    The gunman fired toward a total of five people, three of whom were confirmed dead, authorities investigating the incident said at a press briefing.

    Overland Park Police Chief John Douglass said it was too early to label the attacks as anything other than “vicious acts of violence.”

    He stated that two males were killed outside the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas and one female at the nearby Shalom Village retirement home.

    He confirmed that police had a white male in his 70s in custody for questioning. He added that the man was unknown to police until today.
    The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City said on Facebook that no shooting had occurred inside its campus, and it had released home all the participants of its programming.
    Overland Park, the second biggest city in Kansas, is a short drive away from the state’s main Jewish concentration in Kansas City.

    According to Kansas’s KSHB 41 Action News, police were holding one suspect in custody, who was reported as yelling “heil Hitler” as he was being detained.

    The entire JCC campus was locked down.

    One witness was quoted by KSHB 41 Action News as saying that a man, presumably the shooter, had aimed a gun at him before shooting the windows of his vehicle.

    US Federal Bureau of Investigation officials were helping local authorities investigate the two shootings, CNN cited FBI spokesman Joel Sealer as saying.

    The JCC of Greater Kansas City announced that it would be closed on Monday.

    “We will post more information following a debriefing at the Overland Park Police Command Center and a 5:00 pm press conference, which will be carried live,” the JCC said on Facebook.

    The Jerusalem Post was unable to reach the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City for further comment.

    The shooting comes only weeks after the Anti-Defamation League released a report describing an increase in physical assaults against Jews despite an overall 19 percent decrease of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States.

    In its Annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, the ADL reported that there 751 incidents in 41 states and Washington, DC — among the lowest number since 1979, when the ADL began collecting data. The number of incidents has been steadily declining for the past decade.
    I am asking for my followers, Jewish and non-Jewish, to spread this like wildfire. Antisemitism isn’t often discussed in social justice circles, but I need y’all to know that hate crimes are committed against us. So far, I have only been seeing this circulate among Jews on Tumblr, but I want it to go farther than that.
    I want this to lead to a larger discussion about antisemitism. I don’t want it to be derailed merely as a discussion about gun control. I don’t want people asking if the shooter had mental illness. I want people to acknowledge that the shooter is a blatant antisemite. I want people to know why we often have cop cars parked outside our synagogues. I want people to know why we are still afraid.

    imagine bucky and natasha whispering behind steve’s back in russian, just little harmless things like “he’s cute when he’s angry” and “if you tell him he’s got a nice ass he’ll turn the color of your hair” so steve decides he’s gonna learn some russian so he can understand what they’re saying about him, but it has an unintended side effect. bucky mumbles in his sleep when he’s restless, sometimes english or spanish or japanese, but most often in russian. usually it’s a litany of “don’t make me don’t make me please stop don’t make me i don’t want to” but every now and then it’ll be something along the lines of “begging for your life won’t make a fucking difference to me” and steve can’t decide which is worse

    They said he’d be back in season 9.  This fulfills their obligation.  

    *seethes*  Noitdoesn’t.

    Legally.  Not morally.  

    I’m actually glad they did it the way they did, because I don’t trust TPTB to not just screw up the character. I was furious at the possibility that they’d brought him back just to say some random crap that didn’t make any sense, tell Cas to lead the angels, and then sacrifice himself to save Cas. It would have made no sense, and faking his death would have totally negated his self-sacrifice and character development in season 5. ugh. It was probably the highlight of the episode for me when it was confirmed that it wasn’t really him. (Although ironic that in this episode in particular it almost felt like the writers admitting that they knew they couldn’t do him justice?)
