Come on, Sherlock. Just die, why can’t you?
I can’t help but think… “all these people will cry, but Molly … Molly will slap you across the face to wake you up!”
I can only assume that what photographer Porsupah Ree captured here are binkying bunnies. A binky is a playful and happy expression made by a rabbit in which it jumps in the air and twists its body around in a convulsive fashion.
I never see this. O wait that’s because the bunnies I DO see are running in terror away from my dog. >:-)
(My girlfriend witnessed her best friend being shot. Due to this, she got reverse amnesia - she remembers everything except for stuff about herself. She vaguely remembers me but is scared of bright things, due to it being very bright when her friend was shot. As…
Lol the misinformation is hilarious. Also it takes more than two years to become a psychologist. Lolz
The OP didn’t say she “only” took 2 years, just that she got her license 2 years after this incident. Likely it happened during her training, not before.
The only thing that would make these secret room bookcases cooler is if you activate them by pulling out a special, secret book :)
I just hope those are real books on the bookshelves
Ok, I really want to talk about this scene, the last gif in particular because it is the most heartbreaking thing I have ever witnessed on screen. So Bucky lets them put that guard in his mouth and lets them push him back on the chair and strap him there like an animal. You can see that on the first gif, he waits for it like a soldier would. His face is resolute. It is his ‘bring it on' face, because this is his life and his mission and he is nothing but a weapon. The moment they strap him, his body twitches and there is a sudden change in his facial expression. But still, he waits for it and breathes because what else is he supposed to do? He can't rebel. He has no free will. Now, the third gif is what completely kills me. Moments before it happens, he blinks. He blinks deeply. That is the most human I have seen him in this entire movie. That is his cry for help. That is his resolution slipping away and his fear setting in. And he exhales, biting on that guard even harder. That is Bucky's 'dear god, why is this happening to me?’
Notice how his breathing rapidly increases and the body muscles contracts. Supposedly the mind wipe wipes out his previous memories, missions, information or whatsoever, including the process itself. Here we see Bucky’s reaction to the “new experience”, his mind’s probably in a blank state but clearly his body remembers. Remembers the electric shock piercing through his nerve system, the brain numbed by the excruciating pain. The body is trembling and scared. Even if Bucky was keeping his fear inside, his body’s natural instincts and reflex betrays him. This certainly speaks truth to how dreadful the procedure was.
The whole last gif is someone bracing themselves for how bad they’re about to be hurt. And the screaming. Up to that point the Winter Soldier himself is rather soft spoken when he does talk. And he’s a bad ass who we see get the tar knocked out of himself without so much as a word. But this is so bad he can’t stop screaming. Bucky breaks my heart because of all the Marvel characters, he’s treated the worst, hands down, villain or hero. He’s tortured over and over and over. Bucky is just hard to watch. And in spite of all that he still does something GOOD in the end.

I don’t know if Sebastian made a conscious choice to do this or if it was accidental, but it is genius. I think he understands the character well enough though. Just look at the way his eyes press together and then open up wide in terror. That heavy exhale as he prepares for what’s coming. Just think on how many times this has happened to him? How many times has he been sitting on this exact chair remembering something of his past life. Something that would bring some type of meaning to his robotic existence. All he really wants is to remember and at the same time because he has been conditioned not to feel anything, he doesn’t really know that he wants to remember. It is a horrible place to be in. Not only is the procedure physically agonizing, but he knows that the faint light that he is starting to see at the end of the very dark tunnel that has been his life, will completely be removed and he would be back to being a hollow shell of a man. And the fact that he accepting this torture willingly because he has been trained not to have a choice in the matter, kills me.
I haven’t been following the SHIELD tv show so I’m going off of Coulson from the movies.
I fully believe that Coulson is just as much of a superhero as any of the typical “heroes” … and perhaps even more so.
His “power”? His will power and his belief.
He has no special physical powers, can’t lift giant items, can’t fly on his own, can’t do a lot of things that all these other superheroes around him can do.
Yet none of that ever stopped him from going toe-to-toe. Why? Because he has conviction. He has a goal and belief and willpower that no one can destroy.
The only thing I want in Avengers 2 is Cap picking up Thor’s hammer, totally unaware it should be impossible.
Actually in Marvel lore it is implicitly stated That Steve is one of only a few people on earth actually worthy of carrying Thor’s hammer
To hell with Steve, I want Natasha to pick it up and realise, even with all the red in her ledger, she is still just as worthy as Thor or Steve.
I like both of those ideas.
and the look on Thor’s face afterwords of course. :-D

That’s a really nice photo. Looks like they put some tilt-shift onto it perhaps?
