Hey guys, so, I’m sharing this on behalf of my cousin Steph, who posted it on facebook on behalf of her brother Ryley.

Ryley is incredibly special to me. He is incredibly intelligent, witty, no one makes me laugh like he does. He’s a sarcastic little shit and I adore him. 

Ryley has muscular dystrophy and is 100% dependant on his family. He’s recently had to stop playing some of his favourite video games because he doesn’t have enough mobility in his hands to hold the controller. He can type, but only if someone places his hands on the keyboard. He only has mobility in his fingers and his left foot at this point. He’s gone through so much in his short life- he’s only 17. 

He needs to go to the doctor quite often for check ups, making sure that vital organs are still operating the way they need to. His life surrounds his lack of mobility. And his mum’s van- the only vehicle he can really travel in- has just died.

They are trying to raise some money to make sure that they can get a new (used) van so Ry can get to his appointments, so he can leave the house and see his family, so he can go with his family to the markets and just live as normal a life as he possibly can.

If you can’t spare a few dollars towards my beautiful cousin, please consider just reblogging. Steph, his sister, has written more about Ryley in the link. 

Thank you for taking the time to read, for reblogging, for donating, and for caring.

Anonymous asked: I read your Winter Soldier analysis, and I have a question : you say that "There’s a reason his code name is drawn from an investigation into one of the ugliest chapters of American history." Please help a non-American understand what you meant? I mean I obviously see the Cold War reference in the movie, but from what you've written it seems like something more subtle *within* the Cold War... shit, I mean just "Cold War" seems too evident and I can't find the deeper meaning?

Oh gosh, don’t feel bad, there are plenty of Americans who have never even heard of this.

The Winter Soldier Investigation was a 1971 veteran-organized media event intended to draw attention to the war crimes that had taken place in Vietnam. Directly inspired by the exposure of the My Lai Massacre (the mass murder of over five hundred unarmed civilians by American troops) in 1969, Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) brought together discharged servicemen from every branch of the military to discuss the atrocities they had seen and committed during their time in the war. They hoped bring these tragedies before the public eye, and to prove that American military policies led directly to the death and torment of civilians. Eventually a transcript from this conference made its way before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during the Fullbright Hearings.  

When Ed Brubaker, the author who wrote the original Winter Soldier arc, chose the name, he wanted something that would call up both cold Siberian winters and the atrocities of war. This fit the bill.

But the term itself, the idea of “winter soldiers”, was coined by VVAW as a response to the writings of Thomas Paine, who described the men who deserted at Valley Forge during the American Revolution:

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

A winter soldier is someone who will warm their hands over a meager fire and weather the cold. Someone who refuses to abandon their country and its potential, no matter what the personal cost.

So how’s that for a weird little twist? According to Thomas Paine—activist, political philosopher, and revolutionary—the real winter soldier is Captain America.

Natasha is incredibly perceptive, and no doubt understands that Steve’s problems are less to do with his fish-out-of-water situation of being in the 21st century, and more to do with his crushing loneliness. Steve gives every impression of genuinely liking people, but he’s lost everyone he ever knew and grew up with, and is surrounded by people that he doesn’t really trust. He’s so lonely that he’s literally at the point of having intensely emotional conversations with a guy he met while jogging at the park, so Natasha is making the effort to help him improve his social life.

All of those girlfriend recommendations also come with a subtextual hint that she doesn’t want to date him, to discourage off the possibility of him getting too attached because she’s his only friend. She’s purposefully putting herself in the role of “bantery team member” rather than potential love interest, and as a result they seem to have a pretty close relationship already — or as close as you can ever get to Black Widow, anyway.

feministsirius:

sirius checking in with remus all the time because he doesn’t trust his own instincts and knows he has internalized some really toxic shit

sirius using remus as his moral compass while he tries to build his own

sirius actively working on becoming more compassionate and thoughtful because of remus

sirius reading muggle books in an attempt to understand things that remus loves and getting really, really into nobokov because nothing about nobokov is remotely what it seems

and remus learning sirius’ favorite quidditch players and their stats so that he can follow along and not tune him out

remus building himself up because he wants to deserve sirius’ esteem (he already does but, well, remus lupin)

remus accepting his enormous courage as part and parcel of himself because it never even occurs to sirius that it might be different

remus becoming the arbiter of what is and is not punk rock for sirius and james because no one, but no one, is more punk rock than remus lupin

So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.

This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies <3

Simon’s face says “I like it against my will.”

IT’S EVERYTHING I EVER DREAMED

YES TO MORE ACTUAL TALENT IN SINGING COMPETITIONS.

Quote 23 Apr
The scene with Black Widow yelling to people to get out of the way as Winter Soldier follows her through the streets really made me think that. I know everyone complained about the loss of life in Man of Steel and here was the non-superpowered Natasha actively trying to get people out of the way of the big bad. The audience expects that of Captain America but even the most morally dubious good guy is more thoughtful than Superman was in MOS
