Danny Fenton, freshman year: oh man, I hope I don't accidentally use my freakish ghost powers in school. They're so scary and horrible, I just want to be normal.
Danny Fenton, senior year wearing a Ghostbusters t-shirt with a Fenton Thermos strapped to his belt: Oh my god, I can't believe I have to go literal hours without bending the laws of biology and physics.

I think that one of the saddest aspects of Jason and Bruce's relationship isn't the fact that they've both made mistakes (they have), but that Jason learned that his father is imperfect in an extremely violent and startling way. In my experience, most people learn that their parents aren't these perfect, heroic beings pretty gradually. It's something you come to terms with as you get older. But Jason loves Bruce, and he saw him as infallible for a long time because that's his dad. But to suddenly and brutally have the curtain pulled away like that must have been so confusing and painful.
At least once . . .
we've all been Wilhelm, trapped in the powerless feeling of not being in control of your own life, while life is in full control of you instead.
we've all been Simon, willing to give and receive love and be ready to lower your own defenses, carefully built over time, only when the right person comes along who allows you to do so.
we’ve all been Felice, driven by the constant fear of making mistakes and not living up to expectations, the ones that weigh on the idealized image people have of you, not the real one.
we've all been Sara, marked by a profound sense of inadequacy and not belonging that drives you to looking for change, wishing to become the person you think you need to be, in the eyes of others, to fit in.
we’ve all been August, with the strong desire to show yourself so big, brave, confident in your choices and risky in taking actions, all of it just to hide maybe the greatest and most human of fears: to fail.
This is the power young royals holds: it’s the reflection of strengths and weaknesses as much of modern society as of each one of us, portrayed in its most mature, pure, honest, unfiltered form.
unpopular hc: post serum steve is actually a great dancer and there's no canon reason to say he wouldn't be. like he didn't have the energy and couldn't hear music too well before the serum but you're telling me mr genetically engineered perfection with probably enhanced senses wouldn't have an enhanced sense of rhythm too? Slander. the man started going to ballet/ballroom class to keep himself busy in the future (+ itd help in combat probably bc dancers kick like horses)
first off this hc is great because it makes sense, look at how this mf moves while he fights:
second of all this hc is great because it could start out so angsty
like, maybe circa 2011-pre-Battle-of-New-York-2012, when Steve goes to his gym one evening, he hears music he recognizes for once - music from the 40s - down the hall, and he's obviously irresistably pulled to it, and it turns out it's a swing dance class! and he's mesmerized because not only is everyone dancing like they used to but everyone's dolled up in 40s dress style (nothing is historically accurate but it's still jarring to see)
and he sits on the side and watches (just like he always used to do while Bucky danced with girls as he gave Steve bedroom eyes over their shoulders from across the room) but people keep beckoning him up and eventually he caves and joins in, and he warns everyone who takes a turn with him that he has two left feet, but he surprises himself with how quick he picks it up. and it'd be bittersweet because those classes very quickly become the highlight of his week, but he can never stop thinking if only Bucky could see me now...
he'd stop going after the Battle of New York though, once "Captain America's return to the 21st Century" stops being a conspiracy theory and starts being a newspaper headline :(
but the third thing that makes this hc so great is it would be so funny when Bucky gets back
maybe a couple years since he's settled and he's comfortable going out more and being more social, Steve encourages him to come with him back to swing classes, and Bucky's riling him up while they're on the way there like "you sure, Rogers? you can take the bench any time! I won't think less of you if you stand on my toes!" and Steve's like "😏😏 ok Buck"
and as soon as they're on the dancefloor Steve's swinging him around like a professional, and Bucky's too blown away by how well Stevie "Two Left Feet" Rogers can dance now that he doesn't let him dance with anyone else the whole night (and on the way back home he's so torn between joy and outrage because "you're such a good dancer now and that's great, but it's not fair!! I was supposed to teach you how to dance properly!!" "if it upsets you so much we don't have to--" "--hell no, we're going every week now! I'm gonna kick your ass next time!" "it's not a competition, Buck" "it is and I will win!" "whatever you say, sweetheart")
