Alex, she/hers, aromantic ace, 18, American in Scotland

I'm a first year student at the University of Edinburgh for English Literature.

This blog is unashamedly eclectic, so expect fandom things whatever grabs me at the moment, especially Elementary and Marvel movies. I also post a lot of social justice type posts.
I tag epilepsy warning (for fast or flashing gifs), arachnophobia, and common triggers in the form "x tw". Please ask me to tag anything you need to blacklist and I will absolutely do it without question. My askbox is always open.

I suffer from an advanced stage of dad humor. Prepare for puns.

okay but what if Steve didn’t know many slang terms for hetero sex because he hit puberty surrounded by queer culture and oKAY LOOK, FONDUE SOUNDS LIKE IT COULD BE SLANG FOR THAT SHIT. IT MADE SENSE TO HIM AT THE TIME. THE FUCK DID YOU WANT FROM HIM; HE KNOWS LIKE TWELVE DIFFERENT WAYS TO SAY ‘BACK-ALLEY BLOWJOB’ BUT THAT SHIT ISN’T APPLICABLE HERE, IS IT

Steve Rogers’ 1930s/1940s neighbourhood

selenay936:

But anyway, I recently sat down to figure out exactly where Steve’s local gay bars would be, or where the closest ones would be, for purposes of plotting things out, and uh … turns out that Steve Rogers lived in the MIDDLE of the biggest cruising/gay bar/gay hangouts area of Brooklyn. Like, a couple blocks from the St. George Hotel, which was almost entirely gay by the early 40s. 

This is actually a really great, fascinating essay on the area and time Steve grew up in. The whole idea that Steve (and Bucky even more) would be completely, totally clueless seems even more ridiculous when you really look at this stuff.

please watch avril lavigne’s new video it is so much worse than you are imagining as you are reading this, it is so much worse than anyone could have ever guessed it would be

wHAT

this is the laziest cultural appropriation i’ve ever seen

Isn’t she, like, 35 by now? How does an adult woman and all of the other adults who helped make this think it’s a quality product that has to be shared with the world?

Day One of unstructured time where I really need to be doing things. 

It’s going… questionably so far. Though, I did make breakfast, so that was good. Now I just need to get dressed, do laundry, make my bed, etc, etc, e t c. 

And then read for a course (what?). 

feel free to ts ‘alex goes to college’ it’s going to be a long and boring tag for the next six weeks

i need feminism because when jesus does a magic trick it’s a goddamn miracle but when a woman does a magic trick she gets burned at the stake

fabulous

what if they took west side story and made a version where it was set in verona in the 1400s and instead of gangs there are two powerful italian families. i just think that would be really cool
