whit merule

This is me, hanging around on tumblr. All my fics are on AO3, under the name "whit_merule". I tag it on here as "whitmerule fic". I've the same name on LJ but don't post there anymore.

guusana:

SPN episode in which there are no women in the world, only men. Only manly men. the human race is ending because there are no women to give birth to children. Men all walk around sexually frustrated because they can’t have sex. All the men have tragic backstories, in which all the women around them died. Nobody waits the restaurants or cafes and it’s pandemonium out there. WHO WILL POUR THE COFFEE? nobody. strip clubs have become war zones. all the men are rugged and wear plaid. they shed one tear every friday to remember all their wives mothers and girlfriends. such pain. such manly pain. dean and sam stroll into a motel in bumfuck nowhere and ask for a pair of queens. the man at the counter laughs at them, “a pair of queens" he says, it’s funny, because he is implying dean and sam are gay. as if. and then he remembers.

there are no more queens.

all the women are dead.

it’s friday, so they all look towards the horizon and shed a manly tear.

So I’m sure you recognize this as one of the epic moments from “The Prince of Egypt” where we see the super majestic whale as they cross through the Red Sea. However I noticed just one little issue: whale tales don’t move from side to side, they move up and down. And then it hit me, that’s not a whale. That’s not a whale. It’s a motherfucking SHARK. A BIG ASS MEGALODONIAN SHARK. WAITING IN THE WATER TO EAT THE PHARAOH’S SOLDIERS. Goddamn, Dreamworks.

um. yes? Sorry, were we meant to think it was a whale? I always loved this moment in a terrifying way because MASSIVE SHARK IS WAITING TO EXPLODE IN ON YOU with all his tiny shark minions.

"Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse."

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

yoooooo

Sooo, cybersex?

(No, really, you know that’s going to be one of the earliest widespread - er - applications.)

#[sharp inhale] #these are the times that try canon; seriously this is the point in time where i’m going to ignore agents of shield for THIS PRECISE REASON #the immediate decision to rebuild shield cheapens this turn so fucking much i dont CARE about what cap 2 does for your mediocre tv show #you cannot mistake this film for anything except what it is - a movie made in the 21st century when we’re moving#out of the immediate recent past; it couldn’t have been made at any other time other than now and to TEAR! AWAY! THAT MASK! #and show you that anyone and anything is capable of being /this/; that this rot can grow anywhere and that #we’re not as different as we like to think - is such a smart decision #it topples the status quo it is very decidedly moving forward and goddammit this show had to go and ruin it #man fuck it fuck it so hard fuck it to hell (ilvalentinos)

#mal flawless as per usual #shield was toxic because it was hydra but shield was ALSO toxic because it was shield #BECAUSE SHIELD AS AN ORGANIZATION WAS ROTTEN FROM DAY ONE #you cannot ‘rebuild shield from the ground up’ because shield and hydra WERE ALWAYS TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN #those helicarriers were not horrific BECAUSE hydra was in control of them #they were horrific because TO HAVE THAT KIND OF WEAPON IS INHERENTLY IMMORAL AND TYRANNICAL #because shield is not an organization of good men! it is an organization of perfect soldiers! #any organization like shield would have become rotten and corrupt and ultimately evil #whether! or! not! it! had! nazis! #the nazis were not the REASON that shield was evil #they were a DEMONSTRATION of JUST HOW EVIL SHIELD WAS CAPABLE OF BEING #this movie’s politics were the smartest politics #please marvel don’t take this away from me (via swanjolras)

#yeah. YEAH. #THE POINT IS THAT SURVEILLING AND SIGNIFYING ANY HUMAN LIFE AS IMMEDIATELY WORTHY OF DESTRUCTION WITHOUT THEM DOING ANYTHING WRONG #IS NOT! A GOOD FOUNDATION! FOR A GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION! #WE CANNOT PREDETERMINE HUMAN LIFE AS DISPOSABLE; WORTHY OF DESTRUCTION; PART OF A MASS OF OTHER THAT WILL DESTROY US #WE CANNOT CHARACTERIZE SOME HUMANS AS GRIEVABLE AND MOURNABLE AND OTHERS AS /NOT/ #THE WHOLE POINT OF CAP 2 IS YOU CAN’T HAVE THE DRONES. BY HAVING THE DRONES; YOU HAVE EMBODIED THE IDEA THAT SOME HUMANS ARE MORE GRIEVABLE; #RECOGNIZABLE; WORTHY OF CARE #YOU CAN’T HAVE THE DRONES AND EXPECT THE ORGANIZATION TO STILL BE ‘GOOD’ #YOU CAN’T HAVE THE DRONES! (bropunzeling)

#shield was not unamerican because Secret Nazis #shield was unamerican because Authoritarianism #because so very Authoritarianism that they’d been nurturing a faction of secret nazis the whole time and nobody could tell the difference #the principles behind what shield was doing do not suddenly become Evil or Not Evil depending on whose name is on the letterhead #the point is that some things are evil even in service of *your* cause #and yes they are alluring even to smart people like fury #and that is how groups like hydra and the RL fascists they’re standing in for come about in the first place #this entire movie was like a followup to that erskine quote: so many people forget that #the first country the nazis invaded was their own #captain america only works as a character because if #by some accident of birth and nationality #he’d been captain germany instead #he still would’ve gone down fighting nazis
ahahaha this post is now a perfect storm of tag meta so I won’t add more tags, but a big YES to all of this. Watching the MCU try to engage with the whole Our Bad Guys Are Nazis thing is… interesting. But that moment in Avengers when Steve makes a jab at Loki about the last time he saw a man standing above the crowd in Germany? That’s a pretty good jab. But the actual hero in that scene is the old man who refuses to kneel - and you know Steve would say the same.
