no one has a crush on me. i am too strong to be crushed
In all seriousness though -
Star Trek is more than a fandom. It is a philosophy.
It’s the belief in a better and brighter future for humanity.
It’s about building up from a horrific past of a war-torn world to create a beautiful future in which hunger and poverty no longer exists.
It’s about unity - making friends and alliances across the galaxy with a diverse set of cultures, from human to Klingon to Cardassian.
It’s about recognizing the value of life even when it looks so different from anything we know - silcon-based, artificial intelligence, etc.
And it’s about being the best person you can ever possibly be.
It’s about learning Latin when you’re in the Academy to be an Engineer.
It’s about keeping up with the humanities while you’re surrounded by the most advanced science we can conceive.
It’s about striving to be something greater, something perhaps it would be impossible for you to ever obtain, because it’s the journey that’s more important than the destination.
It’s about progress - in equal parts scientific and humanitarian.
Star Trek isn’t just about the characters or the plot; what makes Star Trek what it is is the driving philosophy behind it, Roddenberry’s vision.
Most fans I see love Star Trek as much for the philosophy as for anything else. And for those who take the philosophy to heart, it becomes a lifestyle. A lifestyle of progress, growth, and endless possibilities.
i really want the avengers and the guardians to meet so i made some dumb doodles
this is literally what happens when a young adult starts working full time

ok so i was watching this gif carefully
and when i first saw it i was like “aww Nat jumping into steve’s lap that’s so cute she’s like AHH STEVE SAVE ME” and then i was thinking ‘well she probably realized he’s way stronger than she is and could help shield her if they crashed’
but then i kept watching it and i noticed how she immediately pulls him forward
and first i thought it was the momentum of her jump but you can clearly see in the gif how she gets settled (quickly) THEN pulls him close to her
and then i realized
that is a bullet hole.
Nat somehow knew EXACTLY where Steve was gonna get shot at, jumped up into his seat, and saved him
Natasha Fucking Romanoff
she didn’t just jump in the front to save steve, tws shot at her first
she also pushed sam away from the bullet bc she knew he’s next
all of this in the span of 3 seconds how fast do u think her brain works i mean DAMN
I’m still really upset and angry. He did it once, the camera happened to be on him, he did it once and I think it’s the funniest joke that’s ever been on our show. - Michael Schur (x)

This is great advice, and a great inspiration.
