can i get a sam wilson headcanon that is just about him?




I’ve had enough of headcanons that connect him to other characters, like i’ve seen thoughts on just how steve eats or how black widow walks but all sam wilson’s headcanons are really always about steve or natasha. I wanna see headcanon about sam’s wilson’s childhood,sexuality,habits that have nothing to do with his white team mates!!!

Sam Wilson grew up in a small three bedroom apartment on the west side of Harlem. One for his parents, one for Sarah, and one for Gideon and Sam, one for their parents. His father was a minster and both of his parents were extremely involved in the community. Everyone knew them and they were known for having the widest open door in the district. Which means no matter how small their apartment was they always had room for people to stay with them. People who couldn’t get into the homeless shelter that night, people who were kicked out of their homes, people who were transitioning, people who were too drunk to find the A train. Sam could rarely get out of bed for a midnight glass of orange juice without tripping over someone.

Baseball used to be his life. He still keeps his senior year trophy on a shelf to the left of his fridge. (No really, watch the movie, it’s there.) He was a pitcher and second baseman. Senior year he was elected captain and at that point he put a stop to his team going to parties with alcohol because he considered it being reckless to their position on the team. If they got caught it jeopardized their elective privileges and put the whole season at risk. He also had zero tolerance for bullying teammates or his teammates bullying anyone else at school. They did successfully steal a stuffed Mustang mascot from an Upper East Side school thought, but hey, go Redwings!

In Sam’s kitchen he actually removed a shelf from his kitchen to install a wine rack. (No really, watch the movie, it’s there.) He only collects red wine and shamelessly pours himself a glass most nights that he cooks his dinners for one.

He’s always been a very physical person. In school the older he got the more guys would point it out and sometimes were uncomfortable with the way he’d throw his arm around them casually or rub their shoulders randomly. No one ever said it to his face but he knew people questioned his sexuality and sometimes they would make jokes to his face about it that made him very insecure. Ever since he’s been paranoid about getting in people’s personal space because the teasing really got to him.

Riley and Sam were just really good friends. When they first met Sam picked on him for his country boy drawl and all of the photos of his wife and new born daughter Patty all over the wall above his bed. Neither thought they’d be up for the special ops program but when they were paired together and assigned to test the new secret flight program Riley became the best friend Sam had ever had. In high school he was popular and always the most liked guy in every room he walked in to because he was so chill and likeable but he never had that one close best friend. Sam visits Kentucky every year on Patty’s birthday.

I love all of this headcanon and also those awesome details about Sam’s house. *goes to rewatch and look for them*

also Sam’s wine rack <3 <3 <3

So let’s talk about your new favorite website and app, Duolingo.


I haven’t seen anyone on my dash talking about this and that’s a fucking crying shame because Duolingo is the shit. You can use Duolingo to learn Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese. Even Dutch, if you’re feeling frisky and want to play with a Beta test (Dutch is not available on Android, but def. grabbable online for all of your language expanding pleasures).

What makes Duolingo so damn special? They make learning a new language into something they call gamefication. You earn points and you kick your friends’ asses with your mad linguistic skills.(Hell yes I’m at the top of my personal leaderboard)


No sass about my idioms being weak. Deutsche sprache, schwere sprache.

And it works. Like, really really works.


But what makes Duolingo so amazing is that its goal from the very beginning was to be a free and easily accessible ESL tool in order to make people more employable world wide. Even their English certification test (normally only $20!) is free right now!

And there are no ads.


The program is supported through the crowd-sourced translations the users do as part of the “immersion” training. You get practice, the Duolingo community talks about it and makes corrections and meshes the good work from different people together, and the final product becomes a translation Duolingo sells to keep the lights on. So to speak.

Will you sound like a native? Probably not. Will you be able to hold your own in a gramatically imperfect and probably clunky way in a normal conversation? Hey, it’s a damn sight better than where I’m at now, so I’m in. And so should you.

It’s super easy to find a way to use it. You can get it from the Apple Store and you can get it from Google Play. You can log in to the website and learn and find extras that aren’t on the app. You can… probably not use it via smoke signals, but I won’t stand in your way if you want to try, bro.


Go forth and be awesome in many tongues, my friends.

I can’t even hear what this dude’s saying but look at how ineffectually angry this bird is.

I’ve had days where I’ve wanted ti shriek like this at people too.
As a side note, I love that barn owls are used to often in art, and considered the most beautiful species, yet they make a noise like Satan’s chalkboard.

So much for owls saying hoot :U

"Are we ready, little one?"


I’ve got nothing but love for folks who call angry, screeching predators ‘little one’.

So I’m starting to post a thing. Its likely the fluffiest thing I will ever write.

I’ll post all ten chapters over the next few days. Chapter 1 and 2 are up now.

I got to read this as it was being written, and it’s THE CUTEST DAMN THING.

…WHOA. now that’s good editing.

Holy shit. That’s amazing.

"Looting? I thought these were supposed to be nonviolent protests"

I know it’s incredible! People are literally coming out of the woodwork to comment on this photoset to focus on the looting headline with “well yes it is nice they were helping people hit with the tear gas, but stealing is still wrong uwu” as if they’re back to kindergarten morality.

Like everyone who’s gone to boot camp I’ve been tear gassed. They put about 50+ of you in a gas chamber and toss it in. You have to stay there until your rank is allowed to exit. Before that though, you have to say your name, rank, and social security number. You then exit and file into ranks (again) outside and are not allowed at any point to rinse your face or eyes for the entire day.

That right there? Easily the worst part of boot camp. My eyes were literally swollen shut. I was blinded for a good 30 minutes and my chest hurt for days.

I have zero problem and not and ounce of judgement for people raiding a mcdonalds that can easily afford to repair damage for ANYTHING to help ease the shittiness that is being tear gassed. Esp because every one of us in boot were medically sound to deal with tear gas. Children, asthmatics, people prone to panic and anxiety attacks, the elderly as sooo many more are NOT going to handle tear gas well at ALL.

Or that smoke the police use either.

It’s easy to sit there and judge someone from the safety of your home and say things like “it’s just tear gas” or “it can’t be that bad”.

Fuck you. As someone who HAS been gassed, you need to stfu.

I remember all the preparation they did to get us ready for the gas chamber in boot camp. We were taught how to handle ourselves, how to control our breathing, not to touch anything, how to avoid the worst of the gas. But it still didn’t matter. I remember taking in that first breath and feeling like I had just been kicked in the chest. I remember a few guys in my platoon falling down and vomiting. We knew the gas wasn’t as bad on the floor but we were the fifth platoon through and the vomit kept us from bending over more than absolutely necessary. I remember a few guys, guys in peak health training to be infantrymen, breaking ranks and running for the door only to be dragged back in kicking and screaming until they said name, rank and serial. They were expecting it, trained for it, bragging about how it wouldn’t bother them.
I remember standing there with all of the mucus from my nasal cavity on the front of my ACUs and thinking to myself “This is the nonviolent option?”
Covered head to toe and my skin still itching I looked down at the silver wedding band hanging next to my dog tags and realized that the gas had eaten little pits into its surface.
I stood there and thought of all the news reports I had seen over the years. The uprisings and revolutionaries being gassed, the crowds running from men in masks.
That’s the moment I got it, staring at my ruined wedding band, that’s the moment I realized terrorism isn’t about bombs or who is using them. It’s about controlling people through fear. It’s about removing their ability to act reasonably, to make them seem like the monsters. Terrorism is about triggering people to fight or flight then blaming them for not being rational. It’s about power. Remove someone’s power to act with reason, and you remove their humanity.
