the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the effects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.
Congratulations and well done! I’m so very proud of you <3
#but honestly can we just talk about this scene for a second#because every single person around him thought he was useless in the army#because he was short and skinny and gangly and didnt look like the average army man#but when he hears ‘grenade’ he doesnt even hesitate#he jumps right on top of it to stop the blast from hurting anyone but him#he was literally going to die during training just because he wanted to protect everyone else#and if that doesnt scream captain america to you#i dont know what does (x)
being called annoying is literally the worst thing ever because then you’re scared to ever say or do anything again and you end up isolating yourself because you think everyone hates you and you feel insecure about everything. long story short pls dont call people annoying
Rewatching 117, when this bit of dialogue in the Sheriff’s office struck me:
**Fast Forwards Derek’s Life**
There a trope I particularly enjoy in romances when I’m in the right mood. I call it the angsty pining love story, in which at least one, and often both, of the protagonists silently pine for the other.
I bring this up because with only a minimal application of slash goggles Derek and Stiles can be interpreted as fulfilling this trope in Teen Wolf canon, and I don’t understand why there are not a hundred post-3B stories exploring this possibility.
Behind the cut is an image heavy post, with slash goggles firmly on, in which I explain the angsty pining glory of Sterek in canon.
OMGs. If the 50 Shades of Grey movie looked like this I’d be in line right now waiting till February!
Oh my god

Ohmygod opening up the internet is called a window because we’re looking IN to the NET
The toughest thing about the shield was making it believable that [Captain America] could throw this thing, have it bounce off something, then take some guy out and have it come back to him. We tried some practical stuff, where he’s throwing a rubber shield. Nothing worked until we handed it over to Chris Evans, until we said, ‘Okay, we’ve got this shield. It’s this wide, it weighs this much. What would you do? How would you throw it?’ And he came up with some really interesting ways of doing it. He had nothing in his hands, he was just miming the actions. It was basically Chris Evans’ ability to mime throwing and catching the shield that made it work.”
