Well. That dream involving being friends with the Avengers, John Barrowman, AND my high school best friend deciding she wants to be my friend again would have been SO much better if it hadn’t ended with everyone pulling a prank that massively gaslit me, caused a minor breakdown, and had everyone mad at me because “it’s just a prank, cmon, can’t you take a joke?”

WTF brain, I hate you.

How we could have seen that Alexander Pierce was not to be trusted:

whalenotpetunias:

(obviously, spoilers ahead.)

I haven’t read the comics and didn’t follow the pre-movie buzz, so maybe I was the only one a little surprised when Alexander Pierce was not the best guy ever, but glancing back, the filmmakers did something so beautiful and, at first watch, subtle, to indicate what he really was.

I was glancing through some screenshots for Cap2 for another meta, and came across this:

Hmm, interesting, there’s a visual divide between Pierce and Fury, from a point in the movie before their conflict is really brought up. Coincidence?image

Another vertical divide between Pierce and Cap, again before any conflict is addressed. Not a coincidence then? So I kept looking, and found example after example

image

I have about five more of these saved in my downloads, but that seems excessive. Even before he was revealed as the Big Bad, the filmmakers created a visual to describe the divide between Pierce and everyone else. He’s shown as having a barrier between himself and others, being disconnected from them even when physically near them.

A few shots even visually disconnect him from Washington (and symbolically, America):

(look at the divide on that window pane, he’s crossing it but only just, separating him from the Washington Monument)

This one is my faaavorite:

Black Girls Rock: Twin Dancers Are Accepted to American Ballet Theatre’s Prestigious Summer Program

Twin sisters Nia and Imani Lindsay have been accepted into the prestigious American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) Summer Program on scholarship. The young girls have been walking since 8 months and have been dancing ever since. At 10-years old the two are trained in jazz, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and tap dance. They are also fluent in English, Spanish and French.

While they reside in Canada they made a trip to New York City to audition for ABT’s Summer Intensive program and found time to sit down with Cipriana of Urban Bush Babes to discuss their big news, bullying, their beautiful natural hair and why they love Misty Copeland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ply4Rjz_UZM

Such an inspiration! I am so insanely proud of these girls.
