This is… oddly uplifting?
On the importance of a teddy bear…
i will reblog this every time.
But what if the teddy bear is the nightmare and the creature is the protector?
It is a little-known fact that teddy bears crave and feed on the dreams of young children. It is little-known, of course, because the bears are so soft and cuddly that they convince the young children that they need them. For a while, the bear will feed on the bad dreams, leaving the child with nothing but the sweetest of dreams. But the good dreams taste better and feed them more, so eventually the teddy bear will start feeding on those, and the child will have nightmares every night. And, because the teddy bear so thoroughly convinces the child that the bear is necessary for the good dreams, they will keep sleeping with it, hoping for its magic to work again.
But the mind of a child is so rich and imaginative that it creates the means to its salvation. The monster under the bed rises, in the end, to vanquish the bear. Some nights it rises before the first nightmare night. Other times, it is at the last moment, and rises only when the bear means to suck dry every last dream and imagination in the child’s mind.
Tonight is the former. This monster was sent out in time to save its child from a single bad dream. And despite the teddy bear’s sword, the monster is fierce and devours it in a single gulp.
It is about to leave when it hears confused, wordless mumbles. The monster looks down and sees its child is awake, and looking up at it. Sleep has not faded so much that the child doesn’t scream, just asks in a sweet voice what the monster is doing there.
The monster, like the teddy bear, can’t speak. Instead it picks up the water by the bedside, hands its child the glass. Still confused, the child takes it. When the child drinks its fill and hands it back, the monster tucks it in with gentle claws.
The child murmurs a thanks and falls asleep again. And the monster leaves, satisfied that it has left its child with less fear rather than more.
holy shit that was beautiful
This is where fandom angers me by mischaracterizing Jane Foster as some shy wilting flower with anime eyes clinging to Thor like a damsel in distress because EXCUSE ME
Jane Foster drove a fucking TRUCK into a LIGHTING STORM
Jane Foster broke a (as far as she knew) delusional, strange man out of a hospital to help him get his hammer back from a shitload of government agents
Jane Foster STAYED and HELPED EVACUATE CITIZENS after the Destroyer came for Thor
And that’s not even STARTING on the shit she pulled in Thor 2
Jane Foster is exactly the same off-the-cuff, zero-self-preservation, stubborn little shit as skinny!Steve was only she does it for SCIENCE instead of JUSTICE and if you don’t love Jane Foster I invite you to check yourself so hard
best goddamn cover I’ve heard so far
Fuck goddamn I love this so much I just want to have been the person who came up with the idea I LOVE IT JESUS FUCK COVERS OF MUSIC THAT GO IN OTHER DIRECTIONS ARE THE WHOLE REASON TO GET UP IN THE MORNING
PLEASE WATCH THIS
In the game of Prohibition, you win or you die.
Since the post has “sharon” in it, i imagine that his friends and colleagues would get in on the joke when someone else who’s unaffiliated would say something biphobic to steve.
Like someone says something shitty at some lame formal event, and sharon carter is his date for the evening, and the biphobe says something like “you just can’t make up your mind” and sharon all snarky and mocking the biphobe like “yeah, you greedy bisexual” and steve puffs up his chest and grabs the whole platter of pastries they were talking next to and says “that’s right, i am. These are mine. Fuck off, sharon” before walking away and sharon’s just trying not to fall to the floor laughing coz like yo they’re still somewhere formal, you know? Bahaha
Like whenever someone would say something terrible, the Avengers would mockingly agree and steve would play into it flatly and sarcastically. This happens at events and press conferences and appearances on the news and everything.
Here’s a look at our Marvel’s #AgentsofSHIELD Season 2 art. 4 days!
