whispered: Tony gets Steve an official Captain America vine. Steve uses it to promote local art festivals and to put focus on struggling mom and pop businesses and Sam is in the background like "[puts head in hands] This guy is a literal saint. I have sex on a regular basis with a Literal Saint."
I bet you they start out like. Really professional like Steve’s using his Captain America voice while someone else holds his phone and he gives some dorky line while standing next to the shopfront sign
and then in a few weeks it’s just Steve holding his phone over his head swinging it around going “I’m at [——] right now an—” and then a little kid comes up behind him and goes AAAAAA and Steve starts going AAAAAAAAA and they’re both just screaming into the camera until the six seconds are up because they’re LOSERS and Sam physically can’t.
NOT THAT SAM’S VINE IS ANY BETTER oh my god once he’s officially on the Avengers and the Falcon becomes a house hold name; all the bird jokes. SEVERAL instances of him pulling up a youtube phone cam vid of him doing something cool, and dubbing it over with “Y’ALL GON’ MAKE ME RELEASE THE FALCOONNNNN”
Tony and Sam decide it’d be fun to see what cute shit Cap says if you sneak up on him and go ‘Boo’. It backfires immediately because Steve is so comfortable around them and his reaction is to swear viciously and threaten them with bodily harm. Which is still hilarious! Just not something he’d want up on the internet. Sam promises he’ll delete it but Tony keeps it as blackmail (that he has no intention of ever using; he knows Cap’s audience is all ages and he may act like that doesn’t matter to him, but he has a huge fucking soft spot for Cap and his stinking All American morals and he knows it would actually upset him so no, its just for showing to the Avengers for shits and giggles)
Sam’s vines start out as “haha lookit this nest” and it’s him sitting in a little blanket pillow fort to “YO CHECK IT” and he has an actual place set up on Tony’s tower right there on the edge in the middle of the “A” and at the last second somewhere from the background is Clint shouting, “HEY”
#SAM SHOUTING DO IT FOR THE VINE before steve actually gets what he means
Steve shouting DO IT FOR THE VINE at Bucky before Bucky gets what it means
Bucky doesn’t have a vine but he’s in Sam’s most famous one. Bucky is sitting on the couch then offscreen Sam yells “GET DOWN MR. PRESIDENT!” and Bucky looks around wildly but before he can figure out what’s going on, all the Avengers dogpile on him.
#Bucky is often the unsuspecting Vine victim
Bucky tries to avoid social media in general but he’s like a fucking easter egg on everyone elses’ accounts. The fans love it. He’s often in the background of Steve’s vids or getting trolled in Tony and Sam’s, but he rarely ends up saying anything. SO WHEN HE DOES, that shit is extra popular.
Finally one day Sam catches Bucky singing to himself as he shaves. Bucky catches sight of him right before the Vine ends and spends the next hour chasing him around trying to steal the phone back and destroy it.
Bonnie: We'll take care of your boy, Bec.
Bonnie: *steals all of the food and supplies from Bec's boy and abandons him to die of starvation one day later*
Zaheer keeps saying things I agree with and then taking it one step too far. He’s like “unchecked power breeds corruption, and oppression is inevitable when public servants become oligarchs and leaders become monarchs” and I’m like “yeah!” and then he’s like “and that’s why all governments must be dismantled so humanity can descend into chaos as nature intended” and I’m like “back up”
Or he’ll say something awesome like “I don’t believe in queens” and I’ll be like “yeah, birthright royalty is wrong and monarchs should be deposed!” and then he assassinates the earth queen and I’m like “dude why did you have to make it weird”
This has been bugging me for a while, and I haven’t seen anyone else mention it. This is from Chapter 7 of Mockingjay, just after the bombing of the hospital in District 8:
I‘m moving in toward the camera now, carried forward by my rage. “President Snow says he‘s sending us a message? Well, I have one for him. You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground, but do you see that?” One of the cameras follows as I point to the planes burning on the roof of the warehouse across from us. The Capitol seal on a wing glows clearly through the flames. “Fire is catching!” I am shouting now, determined that he will not miss a word. “And if we burn, you burn with us!”
And this is Chapter 24, the City Circle bombing:
A hovercraft marked with the Capitol‘s seal materializes directly over the barricaded children. Scores of silver parachutes rain down on them. Even in this chaos, the children know what silver parachutes contain. Food. Medicine. Gifts. They eagerly scoop them up, frozen fingers struggling with the strings. The hovercraft vanishes, five seconds pass, and then about twenty parachutes simultaneously explode.
We all know who bombed those kids. Are we sure we know who bombed the hospital? Was it definitely the Capitol, killing the sick and wounded just because they can? Or could it have been done by people whose overarching interest was usable propaganda footage, and who at best showed a very cavalier interest in Katniss’s safety throughout the book?
We are gathered here today because SOMEBODY *glares at coffin* couldn’t stay alive.
Slytherin wasn’t the only founder to leave a concealed chamber at Hogwarts— before her death, Helga Huffelpuff created a secret room which would help all students, regardless of house affiliation or purity of blood. It’s been called many things throughout the centuries; today it’s known as the Room of Requirement.
