Captain American’s military awards -
Combat Infantryman Badge
American Defense Service Medal
Presidential Unit Citation
The parachute badge made me laugh.
Plus his captain’s bars (on the epaulets), and the SSR pins (on the lapels).
(Also, can high-waisted slacks on men please make a comeback, because damn son.)
Also, note that the Purple Heart has an oak leaf, which means he’s been wounded several times.
This scene was actually when I went from feeling more or less neutral on Joan to actively disliking her.
Because wow, that was patronizing.
I loved that scene in Elementary.
1) Firstly, because it immediately deconstructs the “hero throws and breaks something in frustration” cliche (Sherlock throwing a glass slide in HoB, anyone?) it might even be seen as a parody of that cliche.
2) Secondly, because the dynamic is different between a man and a woman than it would be between two women or two men, the visual of a man smashing something in a temper in front of a woman can be taken as threatening or borderline abusive. Joan Watson immediately shows that she is not intimidated by Holmes’ behavior.
3) Lastly? One of the running themes of Elementary is the deconstruction of Sherlock Holmes as the solitary, antisocial genius, and his becoming a member of a community. Holmes’ gifts are given their due respect, but no one in Elementary plays the game of Because Sherlock Holmes is a Bloody Genius He Can Do Whatever He Wants So There. When Sherlock goes after Moriarty (“M”), Captain Gregson suspends him. When Sherlock doesn’t want to talk about his addiction, Alfredo says “You’ve got to get over yourself.” And when Sherlock behaves like a spoiled child, Joan tells him “Use your words.”
You see Joan patronizing Sherlock. I see a member of Sherlock’s community teaching him how to behave like an adult member of that community.
this is basically perfect
so kiss me like you wanna be loved

"How come she married him?" Harry asked miserably. "She hated him!" Nah, she didn’t," said Sirius. "She started going out with him in seventh year," said Lupin. "Once James deflated his head a bit," said Sirius. "And stopped hexing people just for the fun of it," said Lupin.

This was the close. This was the moment. He pressed the golden metal to his lips and whispered, ‘I am about to die.’
