Dug is the single most accurate portrayal of a dog in anything ever. 

Dug is the best thing to ever happen in the world. Ever.

Then wipe him and start over.

But no, I want to talk about this. That look of fear and desperation he has. He knows what’s coming, and he knows he can’t stop it. He knows he’s on to something, and he is so confused. His face is like a child’s, he doesn’t know what’s going on, and it scares him. He’s used to not knowing the full information, but this is the first time he is conscious of it. And he knows the pain he’s about to go through. That look is not the look of a villain. It’s the look of a boy asking for help, and the only person who can give it to him is the person he’s going to have to kill.

That’s because Bucky Barnes was never a fucking villain. He was a tool that was used against his will. He had the power to make decisions stripped away from him. He did not choose this, nor would he have ever chosen this. Both in the comics and MCU. 

I get so pissed off when people call him a villain and compare him to Loki because NO SHUT UP YOU;RE FUCKING WRONG. 

Loki chose his path. Loki chose to throw a cosmic level temper tantrum and Loki chose to continue on his course. Bucky was NEVER EVER give then option to choose for himself. Any time his programming cracked, any time he fought or questioned his orders and his superior officers, he was put in stasis, had his memory completely wiped and was reprogrammed to ensure his mindless obedience.

"Project: Winter Soldier
Scientific Analysis, 7 June 1957
A comprehensive mental evaluation of Codename: Winter Soldier was conducted over the course of the past week. Diagnoses are varied, but most in Dept. X Science Team believe that his mental state is becoming unstable. In the three years since he was awakened from stasis, it appears his mind is seeking to fill in the holes in his memory or possibly rebelling against the implanted programming he received originally. The subject has recently begun to exhibit more than usual curiosity, even to the point of questioning orders from superiors, and once in the past month, he attacked a fellow operative, nearly killing him. On interrogation, he could not explain his actions.

One theory is that just as he has reflex-memories which allow him to be such an effective operative, he may also have a deeply buried sense of who he was, or at least of what kind of person he was. As such, this deeply buried idea may be causing him mental stress and triggering turmoil in his thoughts. Another theory, which is more disturbing, is that he may actually be remembering his previous life, though in small pieces only. It is therefore our recommendation that Codename: Winter Soldier be kept in stasis between missions, and that he undergo Mental Implantation at every awakening. We believe this will correct his instability issues, so he can continue to be of use to Department X.”

Mikhail: ”<You forget your place, Winter Soldier. Comrade Karpov will hear of this!>”
Bucky: ”THEN LET HIM!”
Bucky: ”That was the first time they saw the cracks in their conditioning, so I was ‘put away’ between missions like Christmas decorations stashed in the attic. I continued as their killing machine and the real me was kept locked in my head for decades… Until Cap fixed me. And all the horrors I committed came rushing back like a tsunami. I might have put a bullet in my brain to quiet the ghosts… if not for Natasha.”

- Captain America & Bucky #624

Furthermore, he is remorseful for the things he was FORCED to do as the Winter Soldier. It haunts him and he feel GUILTY for everything as he remembers them.

This is not a villain. This was never a villain. James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, is not a villain. He is the slave of a villain, used, abused and used some more and then put in a glass tube to sleep until hey need him to kill things again.

And yes, the comic parallel DOES matter. Sebastian Stan read ALL the comics to get into character and Ed Brubaker oversaw the production of CA:TWS. It’s fucking relevent as shit. Because no matter if we’re talking about MCU or the comics, Bucky Barnes was still scooped out of a body of water by his ENEMIES, fitted with a cybernetic arm to replace the one he lost, brainwashed and forced to do someone else’s dirty work. And the minute he questioned his orders, they started all over again.

This is not a villain. It’s a slave. And I will never stop screaming about this.

Free! Names and Meanings

Guys! I was researching Japanese names are their meanings and look what I found:

Haruka: far off, distant

Rin: dignified, severe, cold

Makoto: sincerity

Nagisa: Seashore

Rei: lovely

No like I believe this is basically what the show is trying to fix within it’s characters

Haru who was distant…

image

was taught to reach out to the people he cared about

image

image

image

image

image

Rin who was too dignified and cold

image

learned to acknowledge and amend for his mistakes 

image

image

image

Makoto who is always ever so self sacrificing, always trying to be strong to the point of hiding everything if it meant the happiness of others or simply avoid any trouble just because of his ‘selfishness’

image

learned that it’s ok to be weak, to be TRUE TO ONES SELF, to stop pretending and actually say what he truely feels

image

image

image

Rei who only saw the beauty in for what it looked like

image

saw BEAUTY for what it felt like. That there are other things that make sports beautiful: Camaraderie, teamwork, trust…Friendship

and last but not the least

Nagisa…

which translates to seashore… 

Nagisa who is always so bubbly and cheerful actually has this insecure side. 

image

At first glance, the seashore would look like the boundery between land and sea. But when you look at it in a different angle, it is actually ‘where the land and the sea meet’

Despite the age gap and his inner insecurities, Nagisa was able to prove to himself that he can do what others can if he puts his mind to it. That his age or anything else is no handicap but more of a bigger driving force for him to do his best.

This show is more than just muscles and torsos and fangasms

Free! taught me how to actually make myself a better person

“Countless others have come before you, seeking weapons or weaknesses or battle strategies!”

this is one of the truly brilliant things about this show. while most kids’ shows will have good vs evil conflict, atla has a war. a real war, between people, with all the moral greyness and points of view made clear. the fire nation isn’t evil: it’s a repressed country under the strict control of its ruler. we’re shown how history is altered and propaganda is taught as fact, so the people grow up moulded to hate all other nations.
and then we get lines like this, which make us stop and think wait, is what the other nations are doing really right? after all, Ba Sing Se was supposed to be a haven, but turned out to be repressive and full of lies.
in this case we know that Aang is justified, and we trust him to do what’s right because he has such high moral standards. then we get to the finale and all that is challenged again.
it’s just a brilliant show guise.

this show’s fucking flawless, okay? i just have so much love for atla

My favorite thing~

I’ll burst into song at the oddest of moments. If i’m lost my go to lines are “I don’t know where i’m goin. But i sure know where I’ve been”. I’f the people i’m with make me wait somewhere alone i’ll start singing “lonely oooooh so lonely, nobooooodyyyyy to love me”. Sometimes i’ll even get strangers to sing along with me too, like that one time in Santa Monica and the Hakuna Matata song. Everybody loves the Hakuna Matata song.
