David 'dad' Wymack things
"how did you get into my house?" (said in varying levels of pitch, at various times of the night)
"why did you get into my house?"
"yes you can spend the night" or alternatively : "please, make yourself at home" said sarcastically after child has already made themselves at home
not paying attention to the foxes conversation until he realizes that he was just used as an example of bad fashion choices by the team for Neil ("what's wrong with this shirt?" "er-nothing coach. it's just...not Neil's style")
having a record player in his office and getting made fun of for his music taste
"coach do you like my new haircut?" "hm?" "my hair?" "what about it?" "it's new" *stares hard* "yeah...yeah it's very pretty"
being caught off guard in the midst of a speech by one of their comments that was actually funny and breaking character
on that note- finding out that it's something of a game between them to get him to break whenever they can
"for the last time guys, no we cannot change the team color. yes i asked, multiple times, yes i know it messes with your 'aesthetic', it does mine too, no there's no one else I can talk to"
*stumbles through three other names before he gets the person he's actually trying to talk to*
"coach we brought you those chocolates you like" "really? i- no we're not cancelling practice today, nice try. go get ready. leave the chocolate"
*examines kid closely* "are you high?" "no coach" "your eyes are bloodshot" "yes coach" "...why are they bloodshot?" "long story short, it's exams season and i haven't slept in nearly sixty hours" "minYARD-"
hearing one of the kids casually mention something that happened to them when they were younger or catching a glimpse of scars he had forgotten about and remembering just who they are and what they've gone through and getting angry all over again
dressing up for sports banquet and getting "coach? is that really you?" from the boys and "aww coach you look so nice" from Dan and Renee and *stands up, walks over to him, straightens his tie, brushes off his shoulders, wipes away a pretend tear, fake whispers an "I'm so proud"* from Allison. every single time
"[FIRSTNAME MIDDLENAME LASTNAME]
holding his breath every time one of the kids doesn't get up right away after getting knocked down on court
worrying about them 25/7 but keeping his distance because he never wants to overstep (and asking Abby or bee to make sure one of them is okay instead, if he feels like something is wrong)
"DO I NEED TO SEPARATE YOU TWO?"
recognizing more pop culture references than he'd ever think himself able to, thanks to one Nicky Hemmick
"coach when you were younger did you have..." "how fucking old do you think i am?"
but still uses "back in my day" stories and just gets blank looks and polite nods back
*to himself while the monsters are arguing furiously* "i thought they spoke Spanish..."
"hey coach so i was wondering-" "get your ass back on court"
also literally just "get your ass" for everything: "get your asses showered and on the bus in half an hour" "get your ass out of my office" "stop bleeding all over me and get your ass to abby now"
getting offended by the increasingly transparent attempts at bribery
so. goddamn. many. #1 dad/coach gag gifts (he keeps them all)
"above my pay grade above my pay grade above my pay grade above my pay grade above my-"
additionally: *sees some kind of conflict* *turns around quickly* "not my problem not my problem not my problem not my problem not- oh fucking hell"
visibly thawing whenever he sees the kids bonding or having each others backs at banquets or getting over something or just showing any signs of healing
pacing in front of Abbyy for half an hour while ranting either about the kids or for the kids or on their behalf
"hey you, YOU. come here. how do I take a...a screenshot on this thing?"
replaying "that is enough" and every moment like it that came after in his head
pretending to have a frozen heart but tearing up out of pride on so many occasions: every graduation, giving Neil a side-hug and realizing after how far he came, seeing Neil and Kevin's faces the first time they have a proper holiday, watching Kevin walk out with his queen tattoo for the first time, seeing all the foxes packed together in the lounge freshly showered and exhausted but quietly brimming with happiness and pride after winning at the end of tkm, etc, etc, etc. and, whenever he gets caught: "aw coach you do care, you're a sap" *aggressively wipes face* "shut your bitch ass up, you terror"
*gruff voice* I'm proud of you, kid
*choked up* thanks Coach

(Un)fortunately I didn't jump on the Marvel train until recently, and I'm a bit confused regarding Loki and the torture everyone keeps talking about? My rough timeline is, after Thor 1 he ended up in Jeff Goldblum's planet,,,,, aaand Avengers 1. I don't know when or why Thanos had him or whatever. Also, does it get outright stated in a movie or is it subtext? My biggest question is what the even fuck was doing Loki hanging out with Thanos in the first place
Welcome!! I do hope you enjoy the movies and fandom!! Your timeline seems to be missing Thor 2, and the chronological watching order should be:
- Thor 1
- Avengers 1
- Thor: The Dark World
- Thor: Ragnarok
- Infinity War
That Loki is/was tortured around/during Avengers 1 is canon! And so is the fact that the scepter he was using through the movie was also influencing him! Both of these are made pretty explicit and shown on-screen, though it's never talked about or referred to again outside of the film, so many people watching casually are likely to miss or dismiss it due to his role as the main antagonist in the film.
At the end of Thor 1 Loki fell into a wormhole, then in that same movie we are shown in the credit scene after the film that he survived, but he isn't exactly looking too good:
This follows into Avengers 1 and it's typically accepted that it takes place around a year or so after Thor 1.
In Avengers 1 Loki is implied to have spent his time in space with 'allies' (later revealed to fall under the Ultimate Big Bad who is Thanos, someone who can and has used torture on-screen on numerous occasions to get what he wants). The film opens with it being revealed that Loki will be allowed rule of Earth in exchange for the Tesseract (which he has the unique ability to obtain), and is able to use the army his 'allies' provide to complete both sides of the bargain.
Upon his arrival at Earth he looks and acts disoriented and crazed, attacking agents and using the sceptre he was given by his allies to mind control a few people. He stumbles and can be seen sweating profusely during these scenes as well as contradicts his position through the previous movie that he didn't want to rule. He also uses an oxymoron about freedom and proceeds to leave hints at his plan through the film, but that leads into the theory that he wasn't trying to win with his invasion and is open to interpretation.
Despite coming from 'allies' he essentially looks in worse condition at the beginning of the film than the end when the heroes have defeated him, including chill non-hostile behaviour immediately after losing.
Loki is only shown conversing with his 'allies' once, and we are shown he is doing the invasion under duress (threats, physical harm, heavily implied psychological harm) which is why his forced cooperation by them is explicit during the course of the film.
Deleted Avengers 1 footage tells us that the 'allies' had a telepathic link which caused pain and had him being monitored through the course of the invasion too but those scenes aren't canon canon.
Here are a few other posts about this with gifs detailing symptoms and going into theorizing into what torture was involved because while we know Loki was tortured during the film we're not given many details, and a lot of people deny it. (x) (x) (x) (x).
It's worth noting that this never being explicitly addressed in-canon again has basically resulted in the MCU retconing it years later and deciding Loki was motivated completely on his own with the invasion and was using Thanos to achieve the goal of gaining power because he's powerhungry and has control issues since he was a baby apparently (they also got rid of a few other backstory things of his), but that's kinda not what the narrative Thor 1 and Avengers 1 tells us on-screen, so it's open to however you wish to interpret it and future appearances.

Artemis: Physically, yes, I could fight a bird. But emotionally? Imagine the toll.
Holly: Could you even physically???
(Myles and Beckett are being babysat by Artemis while their parents are away and Butler is visiting Juliet)
Myles: So what’s for dinner?
Artemis, staring at the food he just burnt: Regret.
Artemis: When someone points at your black clothes and asks whose funeral it is, having a look around the room and saying 'Haven’t decided yet' is typically a good response.
Artemis: I was born for politics. I have great hair and I love lying.
Artemis: If you can’t beat them, dress better than them.
Artemis: I’d like to offer you moral support, but I have questionable morals.
Artemis: You’ll have a hard time believing this because it never happens, but I made a mistake.
Butler, Holly, Juliet, and Foaly:
Butler, Holly, Juliet, and Foaly: *Exchanging looks*
Artemis: Well, well, well... if it isn’t my old friend: the dawning realization that I fucked up bad.
(Artemis at the end of the Atlantis Complex)
Artemis: So apparently the 'bad vibes' I’ve been feeling are actually severe psychological distress

Things (or things I can remember off the top of my head) that Tubbo did during his presidency that I agree were kinda fucked up
Going through Phil’s stuff while he was under house arrest
Trying to kill Techno without a trial of any sorts/defaulting to execution instead of any other punishment in general
Shooting at Phil after the failed execution
Going back on his decision to not exile Tommy at the last minute (While I agree with his reasoning and that all things considered it was the safest move to make the other cabinet members and Tommy had the right to be angry about it and he ended up playing into Dream’s hand- which isn’t his fault, the situation was fucked from the start and I’m not blaming him for that. Just saying that the Cabinet had the right to be upset by that decision )
Things I think he was justified in doing
Putting Phil under house arrest in the first place since he was aiding a known terrorist
Going after Technoblade and arresting him in the first place (As far as The Cabinet was aware Techno was still out there and still planning on attacking L’manberg, they had no way of knowing that was retired until they actually confronted him and couldn’t risk just waiting for him to come to L’manberg ( which he had in fact snuck into L’manberg several times and never told the citizens why ) after the initial wither incident on November 16th)
( also I rewatched the part of Techno’s “Nothing goes wrong” vod where the army confronts Techno (about 35 minutes in ) and they were in fact willing to listen to Techno when he claimed to have changed his ways. Of all people Quackity was willing to give Techno a chance to show them that he had changed his ways and said “Let’s do this peacefully”. Techno leads them to his bees... and then runs away the second they turned their backs leading to things escalating. Now I’m not faulting him for panicking and running away because he had no reason to trust them BUT at the same time this gives the army no reason to believe that he’s really changed his ways, as far as they are aware he could be just trying to escape punishment for unleashing withers in L’manberg or so he can further plot to harm L’manberg like Techno said he would the last time they all interacted and it frustrates me that I’ve seen literally no one talk about this.
when they catch up to him Quackity does start threatening him saying they can do this “the easy way or the hard way” and Techno is the one to initiate the fight, not the other way around. Is he allowed to defend himself, yes of course! I’m not criticizing Techno’s character- I’m more just miffed about how people talk about this event. I’ve just seen people word things to make it seem like the army was the one to attack first when that’s just not true. The situation wasn’t a simple black and white one. )
(also also I just wanna say God I forgot how I much I love C!Quackity and how much I miss him- that is all-)
