The government’s solution to Captain America is a giant hamster ball
Here for this headline
It’s very sad when a TV show that you used to love reaches the point where, instead of getting all excited and praising the writers and plots and characters for hours, the best thing you can honestly say when someone asks you about it is, “Well, hopefully they won’t fuck it up TOO badly…”

I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.
You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.
Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.
A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.
On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.
So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.
As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.
Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.
First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.
Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.
You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.
darcy/steve mistaken identity au
In the criminal world, she is known only as La Comtesse—an art thief and sometimes-spy who sells the information she hears in the course of her work to the highest bidder. She is beautiful, impossibly elegant, and she has information that SHIELD wants. Steve is sent to bring her in, and he finds her just in time to foil a kidnapping attempt. There’s only one problem…
After a series of disastrous job interviews, Darcy doesn’t see the harm in delving into her cousin/roommate’s closet to play Successful Adult for one day. So she borrows her cousin’s nicest outfit, heads to the fanciest part of town and just…pretends. She never expects for a couple of goons to try to nab her off the street, or for Captain America to save her—and then keep her.
Steve’s at a loss. The woman with him is a dead ringer for La Comtesse, but anyone who spends five minutes in Darcy Lewis’ presence knows that she’s not the art thief. But as long as other people think she’s La Comtesse, she’s in danger.
He doesn’t expect her to be anything but someone to protect, but appearances can be deceiving. And attraction can flare up at the most inconvenient times. He’s got to keep her safe and find La Comtesse before it’s too late—for both women.
I keep seeing these videos with people in bathing suits and t-shirts, tank tops. For me personally, when I bring awarerness to a charity, I prefer a more formal setting, so excuse me…
