Catbug says, “NOPE.”
1. Steve Rogers is not just some dumb soldier who follows orders, he thinks outside the box and asks questions and considers consequences.
2. Peggy Carter had plans to eat that boy alive before he became a delicious roast beefcake in Howard Stark’s hottie machine.
3. I don’t understand people who didn’t enjoy this movie.

seventeen magazine has officially lost it
can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…
Crazy Costume Stories
MEGAN HILTY (Wicked, 9 to 5)
“I was in Toronto with Wicked and the very first quick change (from the bubble dress into the Shiz schoolgirl outfit) was supposed to take about 15 seconds. After years of doing the show we could practically do it in our sleep but at this particular performance, the zipper on the bubble dress got stuck - the clock was ticking and I was supposed to make my grand entrance singing on top of a pile of bedazzled luggage. I didn’t know what was wrong (or even panic) until I realized I was about to start singing and I was STILL in the dress! Someone yelled “CUT HER OUT OF IT!!!” and proceeded to take a large pair of scissors down the back of my $30,000.00 gown! In the meantime, the people onstage couldn’t continue the scene without me - so while a swarm of dressers pulled, cut, and ripped me out of the first costume and shoved me into the next one, I just kept singing. And singing. AND SINGING for what seemed like forever (and making up whatever came into my head). The entire cast was stuck onstage waiting for me but eventually I rolled out on that luggage cart and everyone in the theater applauded. It was pretty apparent that something had gone wrong, but that’s what live theater is about - no matter what happens, the show must go on and the fun part is trying to cover up when things go wrong! Unfortunately, it wasn’t so fun for the wardrobe department, who had to frantically figure out how to put my bubble dress back together before I had to wear it again in Act 2!”
wait but its so precious oh my
