Civil War Trailer! (I’m dead)

Captain America Civil War second trailer is here and I thought it would be fun if I share my fangirl thoughts (not serious thoughts though because if I get serious here I’m going to start crying because everything seems so sad and awful)

OK! Let’s go.

They start naming us some cities the Avengers had destroyed by trying to save everyone. I always think of this, how does the economy in USA manage with all these city destruction?! But then again what do you expect if aliens invade our planet they can’t be like “Oh Cap be careful with that building, don’t touch that street sign…”

But then they show Sokovia…

And my baby Wanda gets sad because she lost her home and her brother #PietroLives2k16.

And It’s nice to see that Steve notices because I know it’s probably nothing and Steve is just a good person but I like Wanda’s and Steve’s friendship in the comics and I don’t know this was nice.

So then blah, blah happens (and by that I mean important stuff). They show Bucky and then we get these dramatic looks every superheroe movie deserves.

It’s funny because I always joke about Civil War being a soap opera about Steve and Tony breaking up because Steve’s ex, Bucky, returns. This helps my case.

Look at this. This is real love

[“Can You Feel The Love Tonight” starts playing]

One of the reasons (of the 1000 reasons) I’m excited about this movie is T’Challa. Black Panther seems like a great addition to the mcu.

Here he seems to be going after Bucky while Cap runs after him (or with him?), the dream. huh?

Bucky seems to have the “I don’t give a fuck” attitude in this movie. Brainwash is a bitch. He seems unstable and confused af. My poor son. We also get to see this scene again. You know, the one everyone was so “omfg” and “Bucky has no chill” about it because it looked like he was about to shoot Tony in the face in the middle of the street, to keep the list of wrong impressions Tony is getting from  Bucky going (besides the fact that Bucky possibly killed his parents)

He seems to have another target though and Tony stops him with his cool technological thingy. He’s like “Dude! wtf!”

Photo Mar 10, 7 38 16 PM

This though I don’t know if he is the one who shoots Rhodey.

Photo Mar 10, 7 39 00 PM

WTF! Same, Tony, same

Photo Mar 10, 7 39 32 PM

I tell you something. If Rhodey dies in this one, I’ll riot.

Poor Tony, look at him, he looks broken. How could you Steve?! [Violins start playing]

Photo Mar 10, 7 39 43 PM

More dramatic looks here and there

Nat kicking some ass as usual.

Steve says to Tony that this doens’t have to end in a fight and Tonys’s like…

Photo Mar 10, 8 18 42 PM

“Fuck you, Steve”

Photo Mar 10, 8 18 56 PM

“Yes it fucking does, Steve. We’re getting payed for that”

Then Black Panther finally has his chance to fight Bucky. Yay!

“Excuse me, I’m trying to beat the shit out of someone here”

More Natasha because she’s one of my favorite marvel characters ever and I lover her so much.

Then Marvel breaks wandavision even though it didn’t even started

Photo Mar 10, 8 44 25 PM

Is it just me or this part is super kinky? Just me? Oh well, kinky af!

Photo Mar 10, 8 44 35 PM

“Gimme all”

Then we get to see my son and favorite marvel character. Purple Arrow!

Photo Mar 10, 8 44 45 PM

I’m kidding I love hawkeye so much, he really is my favorite comic character but I don’t know how to feel about Jeremy Renner. I usually love the actors who portay the marvel characters but Renner is quite problematic. I try to like him, I really do. He portays Clint well though at least with what they give him (not to much)  I once read in tumblr that being a fan of  clint barton in the mcu was kind of like being the parent of the kid playing tree #3 in the school play. It’s true I hate what they do to Clint in the mcu but oh well…

This tiny friend!

I love Paul Rudd, I used to have a picture of him on my wall. I love that he got to be in the mcu. It made me love him even more. Poor Ant-Man he got called probably thinking they wanted him in the Avengers and now he’s in the middle of this.

Everyone here about to get it on (not in that kind of way we wish they would)

Photo Mar 10, 8 45 46 PM

And then… Tony gets tired of this shit and decides to go with plan B.

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 16 PM

And we all are like “who’s he calling, omg, so excited!”

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 22 PM

And here we lost our shit

Us: ASDFGHJSJDHSHS

Steve: What the shit? oh sorry, What the heck?

Natasha: Not impressed…

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 28 PM

Us: OMG! IT’S HIM! THIS IS IT! HE’S HERE

Steve: Hey, rude! that’s mine.

Nat: Still not impressed.

Photo Mar 10, 8 56 35 PM

It’s fucking Spidey! He even talks!

Marvel decided to stop being so evil and show him. I lost my shit in this moment I was like “BCFJAWEDBCEHGRVCSEJBFW<KA” I’m so excited to see Tom Holland, I have a lot of faith in him.

If you read this I hope you enjoyed. I was so bored today so I though why not…

As for what team I’m in. I always thought I was neutral. I don’t like to see my parents fighting. But these trailers are really making me go with Tony. He seems really vulnerable. I’ll stay neutral though. But my son Hawkeye is in team Cap… but my baby Nat is with Iron Man… UGH! I hate marvel for doing this and splitting my family.

See ya

The “I don’t need love” Type

singlemingle

Hey! The other day I saw this quote on tumblr and I wanted to share it because everyday since I saw it I kept thinking about it

“Can I tell you a secret? You don’t have to be in a relationship. 
 
I mean it. I know they force it down your throat until you choke on it. Girls aren’t pretty unless they’re wanted. Boys aren’t men unless they’re having sex with someone. People aren’t lovable until they’re dating someone. 
 
But a relationship won’t always make you happy, and as wonderful as romance is, it isn’t the only love that exists. I have seen friendships that are deeper and more pure than couples who swear it’s forever – and yet the friendship is the one people ignore. 
 
I have heard so often “nobody loves me” out of the mouths of people who are single. And it kills me because if you ask them: where are your parents, your teachers, your classmates, your pets – they say, yes, okay, but it doesn’t count. Of course it counts, love doesn’t diminish just because someone doesn’t want to have sex with you. In fact, doesn’t it sort of make that love more real that they want nothing – not even a date – out of you?
 
It is pretty to be in love. It’s magical, I’m sure. But it’s also wonderful to stop for ice cream in your prom dress with six other girls. It’s also wonderful to go visit the world with nothing but a bunch of buddies who are really excited about learning. 
 
The problem is: we’ve made everything about “the one”. But maybe “the one” is just you, loving yourself, having fun, and being happy. Maybe instead of looking for our other halves, we should be piecing ourselves together.
 
Maybe I wasn’t born unfinished. Maybe I am the one who makes myself better.”

from here

Here’s when I start 2 word pages of rambling

It got me thinking so much that I started thinking how those around me saw and felt about love. So while taking her to school I asked my little sister (14) what was the first thing that came into her mind when I mention the word love and she looked at me weird because it was 7am and I was asking this type of questions, I know, sometimes I annoy myself too. She told me two people came to her mind so I ask her if it was in a romantic way or maybe just friendly and she answered the first one and I thought it was kind of sad because romantic love isn’t even the first love affection you receive in your life. And she’s only 14 and I know that when you’re around her age there’s a lot of pressure in being with boys because your friends are doing it (and by doing it I mean being with boys and by that I mean making out, she’s still a baby!)

Also notice how it’s only boys. From what she tells me about her classmates I get the feeling that if a girl in my sister’s class, or even my sister happened to like girls I’m afraid to think what they would think of her. I know my little sis wouldn’t be the problem because I taught her well (proud big sister here) but her friends, ugh, those girls are really judgmental.

I also thought about the way my mom sees love. I hate her view of it. I know she’s not perfect and I don’t want to get deep here, we had had a lot of issues. But somehow my mom believes that the only way of being happy is if she has a man by her side, a romantic love. This kind of hurts because when she’s single she’s sad and feels unloved and meaningless. It hurts because my sister and I get 0 acknowledgments. Our love doesn’t really matter if she doesn’t have a perfect family and her view of a perfect family is a man to sit down all nights and have dinner with us three. I think my mom should watch Lilo and Stitch.

Then there’s me, I tend to be a hypocrite. I’m the type of person who believes you don’t need romantic love to be happy. You don’t need a relationship to be cool. I believe myself to be like the person who wrote that and part of it it’s true but I also love watching romantic movies and watching TV shows and reading books because of the romance in it, having millions of ships and otp’s…

See when you are 20 and have never been in a relationship you tend to make everybody believe you don’t really need one and that you’re kind of cynical and that love is for fouls, blah, blah. It’s easier than to admit to your friends that you’re scared or you have 0 social skills with romantic interests. There’s also the fact that you had 7 complete years for your mind to travel into imagination land and create and fantasize (even if I won’t admit it) your ideal relationship so when you go out to the real world you’re like “No, this person could never be in the unique, authentic and crazy relationship I expect” or “No, this person would never understand me, or be like me.”.

But, unlike my mother, for example, I do believe that you don’t need someone to complete you or make you a better person. That’s probably the most important. That you don’t wait for someone to come and make you better, make you happy or have adventures with. These are all things that you can do by yourself. You complete you.

 

So, I Watch Miraculous Ladybug

miraculous

For those who don’t know what this is, it’s a 3D animation series about the adventures of the young Marinette Dupain-Cheng, her classmates (who are often akumatized by the villain of the show) and her crush, Adrien Agreste.

When something bad happens Marinette, let me quote Miraculous Ladybug wiki here “With her magical earrings, inhabited by a kwami named Tikki, she has the power of good luck and can transform into the superhero Ladybug,” Paris N° 1 heroine. Adrien (with his own kwami, Plagg) on the other side transforms into Chat Noir. Without knowing their true identities both work together to protect the city from Hawkmoth, our main villain here whose goal is to steal their powers, he does this, wait,  I’m going to quote Wikipedia now “by using his akuma, butterflies infused with black energy, to influence and transform everyday citizens into super villains”

I was so embarrassed when I started this series because it’s targeted towards kids (I guess?) I mean the show itself it’s really cliché and I guess the 3D animation attracts younger audience but it’s so addicting. I know I’m not the only 20 year old person who feels this way, believe me after watching all the episodes I spent hours looking at the tumblr tag and checking out the blogs to see how old were they. I’m pretty childish already and the last thing I needed was to watch kids’ shows. There’s nothing wrong with doing it though. I remember that same week one of my favorite youtubers uploaded her favorites of the month video and she mentioned Miraculous Ladybug and I was so happy because she’s my age and she watches it too!

Anyway, this is a really good animation. I don’t know how to explain it but while being cliché it also manages to be fresh and new. It’s cute, sweet, funny and each character minor or not it’s autentic.

took it from here

Also if you’re into ships and otp’s this is definitely your series. I never saw a fandom have 4 different ships for the same two people (Adrinette, Marichat, Ladrien and LadyNoir). This is also one of the primal plots of the show, the fact that Marinette has a big, big crush on Adrien but Adrien only sees her as a classmate and Chat Noir (Adrien) loves Ladybug but she (Marinette) only has eyes for Adrien. FRUSTRATING!

I totally recommend it

ps: the theme song is so catchy.

 

REVIEW: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Photo Mar 08, 12 53 35 AM

I’m really bad with reviews but I recently finished Scarlet and I wanted to talk about it.

Story time! I started The Lunar Chronicles on January because I was really desperate to start reading after a year of having only 10 books read (two of them really short.) So I asked some internet friends for books to read and a one of them recommended me this series. As I said before I dig fantasy a lot so when she told me they were the classic fairytales retold in a Sci-Fi way I obviously decided to give it a try. It was not what I expected. Not in a bad way, the thing is I wanted to read fantasy at the moment and this was not what I was looking for, though it has magic and stuff it’s more like those kind of books that picture the future really dark and sad (Like the hunger games, but also not the hunger games.)

So I started Cinder and it was okay I guess, it didn’t really struck me and it was very predictable but overall an enjoyable book. The world the story presented was interesting enough to keep reading and Cinder was a great female character. I gave it 3 stars on goodreads (which I’m learning to use)

The second book was so much better though. Not only the way Marissa Meyer adapted the classic characters into Wolf and Scarlet and their relationship and background which I liked more than Cinder and Kai but the whole story changes. At first I found myself a bit bored reading Kai’s and Cinder’s parts but just because I wanted to read more about Scarlet and her journey and how it was related to the first book’s plot. A little after I was entertained with all of them so I didn’t really care when they switched POV. Cinder it’s still a badass in this one and now next to Thorne who is such a Flynn Rider. Absolutely love him.

Scarlet was also amazing. I liked the fact that she was a pilot, because… I don’t know, pilots are cool. Also, there’s the thing that maybe I liked Scarlet more because of Wolf. I’m going to be honest now. Usually when I pick this kind of books romance is a strong factor at the moment of deciding (I won’t ever admit that out loud) I got lucky that the plot was also interesting with The Lunar Chronicles. What I’m trying to say is that if one of the characters in the main relationship doesn’t really call my attention I might not like the book that much. I think this happened with Cinder. Kai was just… I don’t know, I liked him but, something about him and his relationship with Cinder didn’t click. Scarlet and Wolf did, I liked him a lot and I think the reason I liked the second book more was because of this.

So now I’m off to Cress which is the book I’ve wanted to read since the beginning, I love Rapunzel. The issue with this is we don’t have so many adaptations of Rapunzel or at least I haven’t watched a lot. So my influence comes from Disney’s Tangled. From what I got to know about Carswell Thorne in Scarlet, he’s pretty much taken from Tangled, he’s basically Flynn Rider, the question now is will Cress have Rapunzel’s cuteness? I hope so!
