Okay but imagine if Harry Potter was set in modern times:

Hagrid is desperately Googling “How to train your dragon” as he slaps out the embers in his beard and getting more and more frustrated at trailers for the Dreamworks movie

Who the hell is Bucky? (x)

There’s so much about this scene that needs to be talked about separately because each time you see this scene again, something new pops into your head.

In some recent post-TWS fics, there are scenes where Steve calls him Bucky, but Bucky/WS adamantly refuses to be referred to as Bucky because as far as he’s concerned, that’s not him.

You know, in 616, we weren’t afforded this extremely interesting and character developing opportunity. The Winter Soldier never got to rediscover who he was. (The way the comics handled Bucky remembering was fine by the way. MCU just didn’t set it up that way, because film and other storytelling things, and also like it’s it’s own universe).

It’s interesting because it forces us to think of them as two different people, even though eventually they become one person (this combination of the cocky Brooklyn boy and the desensitized assassin). But at the end of CATWS, The Winter Soldier has one name to go on. And he seeks out this name, seeks out James Buchanan Barnes, learns of this person that Captain America insists is him. And what does he feel? A connection? Disconnection? We don’t know.

I mean, he’s allowed to be his own person now. He’s allowed to create an identity whether it be something completely knew or falling back on who he was. Is he angry? Does he feel a loss? Or is the only thing guiding him Steve? Like, we really don’t know.

It’s just so interesting. The Winter Soldier always became a blank slate after missions. This is a new kind of blank slate entirely.

Quote
"If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her killer kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it, shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret."

Krista and Tatiana Hogan are craniopagus twins, meaning they’re connected at the head.

They share a structure that connects Krista’s thalamus to Tatiana’s. The thalamus is a double-lobed organ that plays important roles in processing sensory input and creating consciousness.

Since Krista’s and Tatiana’s thalami are connected, scientists and members of the Hogan family think the girls might view the world differently than the rest of us do.

For example, Dr. Cochrane believes the girls can see through each other’s eyes. He came to this conclusion after covering Krista’s eyes, placing electrodes on her head, and watched Krista’s brain respond after shining a light in Tatiana’s pupils.

Other times, one girl will be watching TV while the other is looking somewhere else. Suddenly, the twin not watching TV will start laughing at what’s happening onscreen.

Their “thalamic bridge” also affects their sense of taste. Krista is a ketchup fiend, but Tatiana hates the stuff. Once, Krista was eating ketchup, and Tatiana furiously tried to wipe it off her own tongue even though she wasn’t eating any ketchup herself.

Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all is that the twins sometimes use the word “I” to describe both of themselves at once.

As of 2011, no one had run any conclusive tests on the girls and their odd condition. However, scientists who have observed their behavior and brain scans are flabbergasted and excited. While no one can say for sure at the moment, it really does seem Krista and Tatiana can share private thoughts and perceive what the other is sensing.

As someone who wants to study consciousness in the future, I can say this is one of the most extraordinary cases I have ever heard of.

I was sitting on my friends bed with her when she came out as gay

and I was looking through a Chinese food pamphlet

so I put it down, looked at her and said “I was going to suggest ordering food but I see now you’d prefer to eat out”

and I don’t think she’s ever really forgave me
