"I know Shadowhunters…You are odd creatures. All fragile nobility and humanity on one side, and all the thoughtless fire of angels on the other." His eyes flicked toward Jace. "You especially, Herondale, for you have the fire of angels in your blood.”- City of Heavenly Fire
guardians of the galaxy is the film equivalent of a middle school dance that couldn’t decide between the themes 1980s and space so it just went with both, its climax features a dance-off, a group of pals defeating evil by holding hands, and a talking raccoon kamikazeing into the side of a spaceship, and it includes lines like “if we had a blacklight, it would look like a jackson pollock painting”
i don’t understand why i get so much joy from an animated dancing tree but i can’t help myself
LOOK AT IT!
LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS!!!!!!!

Okay seriously, I’ve never seen this guy get any credit, but check this out. Steve had just given his speech that Hydra had infiltrated SHIELD and Project Insight was their means of taking total control. Project Insight, which must have taken hundreds of mislead SHIELD employees several months if not years to get this far, and suddenly all priorities are reversed with a few words from the Star Spangled Man With A Plan. So when Rumlow marches in and orders this kid to go through with it, he stares him down for a good 20 seconds, demanding “Is there a problem?” twice in the process. Everyone else is watching in tense silence. This guy is clearly terrified and probably in shock knowing everything he worked for was a Hydra crafted lie, but he sticks with his morals and finally works up the courage to say no, not happening. This is everyday heroism, on par with the man in the Avengers who stood up to Loki when he ordered everyone to kneel. It’s sticking up for what’s right, even in the face of repercussions and knowing your actions alone won’t stop what’s happening. At least you had the strength of character to do the right thing, when it would have been so much easier to follow along and not make yourself a target.
Give this kid a medal.
