Some old books have hidden messages on the edge of their pages.

This was done through a technique called “fore-edge painting,” which is an illustration that is hidden on the edge of the pages of the book. The technique allegedly dates back to the 1650s.

We really need to talk about this scene a lot, because holy wow. The MCU movies have definitely been getting a little darker since the Avengers, but scenes like this? This is pure optimism. Tony is told he can save 4 out of 13, and then he saves all 13 of them anyway, because these people can work together and help Tony save them. 

If a similar scenario had happened in the Dark Knight Saga or Man of Steel, you know damn well 9 out of those 13 people would have been dead. Hell, Bruce or Clark would have been lucky to even save the 4, because DC movies have gone down a route of unrelenting grtty realism that makes good old super heroics virtually impossible. Bruce can’t save the city without faking his own death; Clark can’t save the world without becoming a murderer.

But even in the darkest hours of the Marvel Universe, Tony Stark can damn well save 13 people plummeting to their certain death. Is it realistic? Hell no. But it was an awesome victory that both Tony and the audience needed at this point in the story, and by god it was heroic.

Reblogging for those tags. Because yes. Heroic is doing the right thing because it’s the right thing, even when it’s impossibly hard.

This is one of my favorite scenes ever in the entire MCU and it’s because of the work that went into creating this scene. It was not just a shitload of CGI. They got the Red Bull skydiving team to do this insane jump. Their parachutes were built into these costumes that they wore which made them look like normal people who’d just been on the plane.

The making-of for this scene blew my fucking mind.

But yeah. All of the above is cool to think about, too. I just like the scene!

Also they gave a realistic explanation to fall back on which was pretty awesome too

i found this on my computer. WHEN IN THE LIVING FUCK DID I MAKE THIS?!

"See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.

Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does."

David’s watching Billie like a hawk, making sure that she’s okay.This is just as difficult a scene to play for him.The Doctor knows that he’s lost Rose forever and it’s his last chance to say goodbye. Billie does it exactly as, if not better than, before.The only problem was that it’s so windy her fringe falls across her face several times. But, in character, she manges to pull it to one side. Between those two takes, I’ve got enough to show everything we need. “Are you really happy? Because I can do it again.” There’s a look from David as if to say, “No way, you don’t need to.” And he’s right. I was absolutely thrilled and moved by her performance, as were the rest of the crew who were on the beach that day. There was not a dry eye in sight, and everytime I see that sequence I am still moved to tears. David’s there for her, as soon as we cut, hugging her tight.

cuddling is probably one of the most passionate forms of love there is because you just feel so safe and close to the person and it feels like all your worries go away and it’s one of the greatest feelings in the world
