“I’m afraid we’ll always be
a book with the end pages ripped out.”
— Madisen Kuhn, Does Time Truly Heal All Wounds?
So I’ve been reading some fantasy novels that deal with old Celtic mythology and time travel and the concept of love between godlike creatures and humans, and to be honest it just makes me want a scenario where Derek is the curiosity of his perfect family of Golden Ones who, don’t necessarily show disdain for humans, but certainly view them as lesser beings. Okay, it’s also heavily inspired by Thor, and my recollection of gods and mythology is limited from what I’ve learned about it (which is so obvious from this, oh my god the liberties I’ve taken… apologies to all the learned mythology buffs), but I love the idea of the Hales embodying the old archetypes that show up again and again in legends from history.
As any pantheon does, they all have their own particular strengths and skill sets, and Laura has been groomed for supreme goddess since the humans were crawling on their bellies out of the mud. Peter is the embodiment of the trickster and takes particular glee in shimmying the line between good and evil. Cora, like Derek, is young and still coming into her own, but it’s clear from how regal and terrifying she is that war and conflict is where her strength lie, and though she revels in bloodshed, she simultaneously embraces peace and the context it gives times of struggle.
It’s well known that Derek is his mother’s greatest source of heartbreak. He feels uncomfortable with the expectations laid on him, and has yet to find a niche on which to make his focus. He embodies beauty and lust and sacrifice, and is the cause of many a dreamy sigh and crude fantasy around the court, but shies away from it - he’s aware that he’s aesthetically pleasing and physically strong; that his face and his physique is the source of many of the attentions towards him, but he feels lonely and excluded and hollow each time he engages with someone long enough to take them to bed and try to fill the void he feels.
He has so much at his disposal that sometimes he likes to slip off into the Hall of Mirrors, where his mother’s advisor - known only as Deaton - resides. It’s the only place he feels truly intrigued and excited and enraptured anymore. He likes losing himself in the reflections - all of time and existence is laid out for him and just watch the fragile creatures go about their lives, oblivious to the manipulation of Derek’s kind behind the veil of reality. He feels an affection for them that he knows is unique in his court - a respect and concern for them that he’d probably be ridiculed for if he shared.
And maybe one day, as he’s looking, he sees this boy - no, not a boy, he’s definitely a man. He’s residing in early 21st century California, and he’s got this - this aura about him. He doesn’t have any of the classic strengths that Derek was taught were the only ones that mattered growing up. He’s smart and incisive and he has such fierce love in his entire being that Derek aches with it.
i imagine both steve and bucky like to come up with different ways to poke fun at sam every time they pass him during jogging
because they are shitheads
(the first one is a print you can get here)
posey was admiring the skittles fanart the person in front of me asked him to autograph, how amazing cool and scary it looked and then said “we look a little bit in love” to which matt and i replied “well aren’t you” and posey just shrugged and said “yeah”
people keep using the argument that kate said “you’ve grown up in all the right places” as proof that derek was 15-16 when the fire happened
but you keep growing after 18! look at hoechlin at 18 and hoechlin at 25. dude grew up in all the right places
Derek is round about three years old, in dog years.
"Originally, the movie opened with a World War II sequence," Feige says. "It was in the script early on and we boarded and did some concept art for it to try and remind the audience that he is from the past, reestablish Bucky as a character, and use that to transition into the world. Before production we were going through it, we realized the Smithsonian served that purpose, and the best thing for the movie would be just to throw the audience into the modern world with Cap. Then everything we needed to know about his experience in World War II we could get out of his discussions with Sam and Peggy and the Smithsonian trip, which is why the WWII sequence fell out of the film."
The hair, the jumpers… they are just so cute here!
