Just had a thought today: in the elevator scene in The Winter Soldier, they try to stun and cuff Steve. They have those industrial-strength magnestised cuffs, and multiple stun batons.
Here’s my question: what were they going to do with him? Lock him up? Strip him of his uniform and frame him for mass murder by having TWS go out in his place? Put him back on ice until their plan was done?
What exactly do you do with the one loose canon that could capsize your boat?
I mean, clearly trying to tie down the loose canon is a good plan, but not when the loose canon is so much smarter and more capable than any of your other little popguns.
So yeah. Inquiring minds want to know. (And want to shoot dead the plot bunny of Steve, captive, and seeing someone in his uniform, going out on a killing spree. And then the uniformed man comes back and removes the mask and HI HO SILVER ANGSTING! EVERYWHERE I GO NOW, BABY! I SEE THE TEARS ARE FALLING, BUT I WON’T MAKE A FUSS. BECAUSE I’M A MASOCHIST :D)
But why is Danny Elfman doing the music for 50 Shades of Grey?!
"He’s going to touch me… there!”
[Wacky haunted circus music surges in intensity]
What’s this?! What’s this?! There’s ball gags in the air! What’s this?! What’s this?! There’s butt plugs everywhere!
Now this is a movie I would see.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Nobody dies in this story. They just get really big booboos.
I’m sorry lovelies. Please tag your OUaT now, please. I just saw a Captain Swan make-out and I feel physically ill. And I also hate Frozen. So yis. Plz tag OUaT. Because I have never actually been driven away from something I love before, but that show did it.
Wow i literally just started to watch this last night…that bad huh?
S1 was pretty much flawless. There were a couple of shaky episodes, but they were there for a reason. The storytelling was tight. The plot was intricately laced all the way through. The characterisation was solid. It was one of the best S1s I’d seen in a long time.
S2-onwards, they just seemed to be distracted by whatever they found shiny, which is why we end up with a canonical sex pest who beats up captured women, threatens physically disabled men, and makes rape jokes, as the love interest of the female lead. That is actually the main reason I can’t watch it anymore. The biggest, flashing-warning-light, abuse-triggery reason.
I’m not saying there aren’t moments to enjoy in the seasons, but I can’t look at anything beyond S1 anymore, knowing where Captain “We’re going to gangrape your wife lol” ends up.
I shall do my best. Do you want all OUAT tagged or is Rumbelle still good in your book? What are you blacklisting so I can try to tag that…I’m genuinely upset that they actually managed to destroy my affection even for that ship. Just the show as a whole. I think I’m most angry because it could have been incredible, if they had just put their focus hats on and stopped going “You know what would be cool?!??!” I hate sloppy storytelling. I hate it so much.
She says as she makes up the plot of a novel while she writes it…
I’m sorry lovelies. Please tag your OUaT now, please. I just saw a Captain Swan make-out and I feel physically ill. And I also hate Frozen. So yis. Plz tag OUaT. Because I have never actually been driven away from something I love before, but that show did it. And did it so drastically that I now feel a deep-seated visceral anger at what could have been incredible.
Season 1, I will consider you the be all and end all of the show. I will watch you and pretend nothing else ever happened. I will remember when the plot made sense. I will remember when they didn’t just bring people in to kill them all the damn time. I will remember Jefferson and Graham and Ruby and all the people who went because the creators could not focus. I will remember when Regina was still a villain who was interesting, as opposed to the weebly woobly baby of the creators. I will ignore Hook forever.
I will stop seething about the simple ways they could have tightened the arcs and made it awesome. I will stop getting furious about how frustrating it was seeing new people being brought in for a split second, then dying with zero plot development or storyline, while mains from S1 were punted aside. I am done.
I really love thaw. Thanks for writing it :)
You’re most welcome :D I think this may my favourite fic I’ve written in a long, long, long time, if ever.
