Never not reblog

One thing that always bothered me about that picture of mulan, more than the obvious artifice which is pretty out of character, is the colour of her outfit. The general consensus seems to be that mulan took place in the Northern Wei dynasty, but during the Tang Dynasty which preceded it, the colour yellow, especially bright yellow, had become the exclusive domain of the Emperor. And in those times disrespect to the Emperor could cost you your head at best and the lives of you and your entire family at worst. So, y know, maybe don’t put her in yellow clothes.

I love the history side if tumblr

Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged? You are iron. And you are strong.

n.t. (via thelittle-hobbit)

Damn right you’re iron, and do you know where iron comes from? Do you know how iron gets here? Let me tell you.

It does start with a star, but it’s not some dismal castoff from an eternal beauty, it’s so much more. Everything that makes our world came from stars, but nothing had as much effect on that star as iron.

See the sun burning in the sky? The light you see and the heat you feel are created when the sun fuses elements, the building blocks of our world, into new and heavier elements. The sun lives because more energy comes from that process than is needed to support it.

UNTIL IRON COMES ALONG.

Fusing iron — burning it to make a star shine — is nigh on impossible. Iron is strong and iron is heavy. Iron is so strong and so heavy that to make new elements from iron takes more energy than it produces. The star can’t keep up, it starts to die.

The iron that flows through your veins KILLED A STAR.

Those other metals that we so value, like gold, owe their existence to iron. As the star died it collapsed, crushing itself and making gold and platinum and other precious and powerful things. Then it exploded and scattered those metals throughout space.

Chief among them was iron. The iron whose formation was the death knell of the star. The iron whose intensity made other metals possible. The iron that was the last thing the living star could make.

Stars lived to make iron.

Stars died to make you.

He’s not expressing confusion, he’s tilting his head for better sound localization. While having an ear on each side of the head is good for lateral echolocation, tilting the head so that the ears are offset gives it vertical depth.

Peggy Carter asking to see the recruitment sheets for SHIELD as soon as she’s in charge and some lower down saying “she doesn’t need to” and Peggy INSISTING.

Peggy asking why SHIELD recruits 99.9% men.

Peggy getting bullshit responses like “women just aren’t interested” or “women don’t have the necessary skills”.

Peggy Carter personally going to universities and high schools and handpicking female agents for their test scores, for their can do attitude, fuck sometimes even because they look at her the wrong way.

Peggy Carter coming down like a tonne of bricks on sexual harassment complaints and educating the fuck out of male SHIELD agents.

Peggy Carter.

This, so much this!!! Even just in USA, there would be hundreds of women who served in the army who would resent having to go back to being housewives. Thousands, when you add those among the homefront workers.

And then you realize that S.H.I.E.L.D. is supposed to be international, and it becomes almost hilarious to imagine not hiring women. English women, French and Polish partisans. Chinese, Korean. Jewish holocaust survivors. Heck, probably Japanese, Italian and German women too.

And they would be perfect for the job - trained, experienced, and desperate to succeed. And good agent material, because at that point, a woman is still as good as invisible.

Seriously, it’s unimaginable for me that Peggy wouldn’t pick from former WASPs and WAVES (if MCU had them that is).

I am now imagining Peggy Carter sitting down with students at Smith, Mount Holyoke, Wellesley, all the Seven Sisters, and talking to the students. And they sign up eagerly.
