who cares if school doesn’t teach us how to raise a family or get a job like at least I can find the area of a triangle.
I actually loved this moment, because I didn’t see this as Steve being incompetent and completely unaware of what was going on. This, I felt, was Steve being extremely sassy. “It seems to run on some form of electricity,” he says, with a huff of a sigh and a smile. What he means is, “Of fucking course I don’t know what this shit means, I’ve never been exposed to this, are you serious right now” and that is not because he’s stupid or inept. Actually, Steve adapts very, very well and very quickly to new technology, evidenced in the Avengers with the ease and familiarity that he navigates his tablet with, but also in Captain America, where he takes everything Howard gives him (modified, highly advanced Hydra weapons) and uses them to full capacity.
It’s just that Steve’s never seen the inside of a control panel like this, so there’s no way in hell he’d know what to do with it, and he’s pointing that out to Tony with his dry sense of humor. And I think Tony gets it, because he doesn’t get angry or snark back at him; he returns with “Well, you’re not wrong” and a lopsided smile, which I read as his “duh, what was I thinking” moment.
I just have a lot of feelings about Steve and his sass and his dry sense of humor, and now I will crawl away to have feelings elsewhere.
It’s kind of amusing how much I’m actually bristling at the idea of people thinking that Steve is dumb.
That’s how I always saw this part. Hell, if Clint was helping Tony instead of Steve, Clint probably would have said something similar. This is the guy who cut the wires of his DVR because he thought that would help it come on.
I found a bunch of awesome concepts for a justice league
So here he is, Batman’s secret weapon, his ace-in-the-hole, Robin the Boy Wonder:
How can the Batman cause the lights to go out over a city block just when it is most convenient? How does he know the whereabouts of high profile criminals from miles away? Why does he never show up on film, even when those standing around him do? Why does nearly all technology seem to bend to suit Bruce Wayne’s needs?
The answer is Robin, the “Boy Wonder.” A mysterious hacker-savant who just appeared in the cave below Wayne Manor one day and, without a word of explanation, began building a very powerful computer, and using it to do the most amazing things…
Bruce still doesn’t have any idea who the boy is or where he came from.
The boy calls himself “Robin” and Batman doesn’t trust him at all.
A couple notes on this Robin:
1. This is not Dick Grayson.
2. Hacking is a funny trope these days, with characters using the “power of hack” to do all sorts of crazy impossible stuff. This kid probably has a strange technological meta-ability similar to Gary’s ability on Alphas. So it’s computer-magic. I even had this thought that the laptop he carries might just be a prop.
3. Probably this strange kid will eventually break away from Batman and become Oracle.
I just needed to reblog this again.
Because jfc, you don’t understand how important this scene is to me.
Or maybe you do!
Because it has Jack openly showing his affection and admiration for two people of different gender in the exact same way, making no difference at all, and neither do Rose nor the Doctor. Zilch. No hesitating, no flinching, no comic relief.
I wish it could be like this more often.
That scene up there is doing everything right, end of story. And while Jack’s sexuality is often made out to be something to smile at, it’s also shown as very natural and Nine was just cool with that, no reason not to be.
Acceptance: You’re doing it right.
