Anonymous asked: Why do you think it's unacceptable for benedict cumberbatch to play strange, just out of curiosity?


  1. i refuse to let benedict cumberbatch in the mcu
  2. why cast a white guy when you could not do that
  3. butawhiteguy cantplaykhan is a perfectly acceptable and talented actor but i do not want him anywhere near marvel because i saw what the sherlock fans did to the hobbit
  4. why cast a five pound sack of flour when you could cast oded fehr

Are Scott and Madelyne sending Charles smutty honeymoon photos? Also, who is taking that photo? Did they hire a professional to record their post-nuptial sex romps? Is Scott Summers an exhibitionist? This creates so many questions for me.

I wish people would stop posting these as though they’re real. All of the titles past Ant Man are speculation right now. I think there’s a good chance we’ll hear some titles by the end of the week, but the idea that they would announce all of these right *before* SDCC is just…no.

Plus there’s the whole thing of this list having Civil War (which how would that even work in the MCU without mutants) after Fallen Son.

chead asked: hey what's up with the "!" in fandoms? i.e. "fat!<thing>" just curious thaxxx <3





I have asked this myself in the past and never gotten an answer.

Maybe today will be the day we are both finally enlightened.

It’s a way of referring to particular variations of (usually) a character — dark!Will, junkie!Sherlock, et cetera. I have suspected for a while that it originated from some archive system that didn’t accommodate spaces in its tags, so to make common interpretations/versions of the characters searchable, people started jamming the words together with an infix.

(Lately I’ve seen people use the ! notation when the suffix isn’t the full name, but is actually the second part of a common fandom portmanteau. This bothers me a lot but it happens, so it’s worth being aware of.)

Bang paths (“!” is called a “bang” when not used for emphasis) were the first addressing scheme for email, before modern automatic routing was set up. If you wanted to write a mail to the Steve here in Engineering, you just wrote “Steve” in the to: field and the computer sent it to the local account named Steve. But if it was Steve over in the physics department, you wrote it to phys!Steve; the computer sent it to the “phys” computer, which sent it in turn to the Steve account. To get Steve in the Art department over at NYU, you wrote NYU!art!Steve—your computer sends it to the NYU gateway computer sends it to the “art” computer sends it to the Steve account, etc. (The “!” symbol was chosen because it was on the keyboard, not too visually noisy, and not used for a huge lot already.)

It became pretty standard jargon, as I understand, to disambiguate when writing to other humans. First phys!Steve vs. the Steve right next to you, just as if you were talking to the machine, then getting looser (as jargon does) to reference, say, bearded!Steve vs bald!Steve.

So I’m guessing alternate character version tags probably came from that.

history! :D

Because of specific work crap that I won’t go into here (though really you ask me to go to LA for two fucking weeks on short notice and then bitch at me about the cost???) *ahem*… ANYWAY, I’ve been in a somewhat foul mood today.

I decided to put on Season 2 of The West Wing. I’ve decided this show is my emotional catharsis show. I’m already feeling better.

ETA: I’m also eating my new favorite food. A Portabello Caprese sandwich with yam fries. NOM!!!!
