What happens when I think about stuff too much. Or obsess. Or ramble about theatre. Or pretty much do anything I feel like. I tend to the chaotic.
Emendationes libenter non patimur.
The unsung heroes.
That was one of the most horrifying, painful, beautiful parts of the movie. So many of them weren’t prepared, so many were administrators who had no clue that the STRIKE teams had turned, let alone that a killing machine like the Winter Soldier was on the loose.
So many of them died.
And yet none of them hesitated. Despite the propaganda Pierce had unleashed, despite their orders, despite everything, they still responded. Their sacrifice, their heroism - they gave the last full measure of devotion, and I can’t imagine that Steve wouldn’t attend the memorial service, even if he had to use a wheelchair or a cane because his own wounds hadn’t finished healing.
"Captain’s orders" indeed.
without these people, there IS no Captain America.
It’s what we in the SCA say to our kings and queens: ”You reign because we believe.”
And don’t discount administrators. We’re the ones who get shit done when no one else wants to.
This was your crusade.
Now it’s our war.
Sophie: Now for the hard part. We need to steal a general.
Nate: No, it’s “Let’s go steal a general”, you know? It’s a rallying cry.
there are 7 billion people on the planet and you only interact with like a fraction of a fracton of them in your lifetime. imagine how many incredible friendships or relationships you could have but you’ll never meet or get to know those people

Clint Barton had managed to affect her in a way she’d never been effected before, and it didn’t seem to be as though it were going to stop any time soon. In a strange way, he represented everything she could become in the future. She didn’t know his past, but it wasn’t a secret any longer that he had had a dark start, much she like had. How could someone with such violence on his record turn into the kind of man who smiled authentically and believed in second chances for people like her? Again, the thought crossed her mind that if he could do it, she could, too.girl, compromised, chapter 7, by officialnatasharomanoff (aka thoughtfulconstellations)
I’m very proud of myself right now. Tonight, I went and spoke to a group (100 women who care) about the work that the charity I work for does. It was a “competition” in that there were 3 charities (including us) who had 5 minutes plus a Q&A to make the case for the money raised. Each woman who goes to the meeting brings a $100 cheque and at the end, they vote and majority rules, the pot going to the charity that touched them and convinced them. I was up against two incredibly worthy organizations, but maybe, just maybe, 35 years of theatre experience meant I could project to the back of the room, let the emotion of the story I was telling come across a little easier and let me squish some of the fear of public speaking into a manageable corner.
It’s the first time I have had to speak to a crowd for this where I had to compete for their money.
It’s nice to know that I can do that. That I won that competition? That’s just the icing on the cake.
