Generals – multifandom vid by kaydeefalls

We got strength in numbers and they’re going to pay for it. Our princesses are now generals. Deal with it.

The Mynabirds – Generals

I need a political job in a blue collar town
So I can pay my rent
When the music is on, I get my best blood drawn
But I haven’t made a dollar yet

Haven’t I paid my dues?
Haven’t I paid my dues?
Haven’t I paid my dues yet?

Calling all my generals
My daughters
My revolutionists
We got strength in numbers
And they’re goin’ to pay for it

We burn the money in our homes
Oh our books and bones are breaking down so fast
But they keep putting all our cash
Into the next bloodbath
Honey, tell you I am sick of it

Haven’t I paid my dues?
Haven’t I paid my dues?
Haven’t I paid my dues yet?

Hey all my sisters (yeah)
What you want (love)
And all my brothers (yeah)
What you got (love)

You wanna fix it (yeah)
Or fuck it up
Come on fix it
‘Cause it’s been fucked

Calling all my generals
My daughters
My revolutionists
We got strength in numbers
And they’re goin’ to pay for it

Get your black boots on
Get your black boots on
Get your black, black, black boots on

Beat your marching drum
Beat your marching drum
Beat your marching drum

We’re gonna make ’em run
We’re gonna make ’em run
We’re gonna get ’em on the run

So get your warpaint on
So get your warpaint on
Let ’em know we’re out for blood

In December of 1940, America still hadn’t entered the war.

There were a lot of Americans – such as the 800,000 paying members of the America First Committee – who looked at fascists massacring their way through Europe and declared “that’s not our problem.”

Captain America was created by two poor Jewish Americans, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, with the specific intent of trying to convince Americans that entering the war was the right thing to do.  It wasn’t easy – Kirby went far beyond what was expected of artists at the time, penciling the entire issue with a deadline that would have been difficult for a two-man crew to pull off.  

Captain America punched Hitler right on the cover, at a time when a majority of Americans just didn’t feel like doing anything decisive against the Nazis.

Kirby and Simon faced considerable resistance for their creation, including steady hate mail and outright death threats.  

Once, while Jack was in the Timely office, a call came from someone in the lobby. When Kirby answered, the caller threatened Jack with bodily harm if he showed his face. Kirby told the caller he would be right down, but by the time Jack reached street level, there was no one to be found.

Both creators enlisted after America entered the war.  Kirby, as an artist, was called upon to do the extremely dangerous work of scouting ahead to draw maps.  He also went on to co-create Black Panther in 1966.

They didn’t create Captain America to be an accurate depiction of America-As-It-Is.  The character was meant to inspire and embolden, to show America-As-It-Should-Be.

The subject of where the Vibranium for the shield came from actually never came up for decades of comics, until it was finally addressed by Black Panther’s writer, Christopher Priest, in 2001.  Priest never shied away from acknowledging America’s racism, but he also understood that Captain America represented an ideal, intended to inspire Americans to be better. 

The story mixed together a “present day” discussion between Cap and T’Challa with flashbacks to when Cap met the Black Panther ruling Wakanda during World War II.

The Vibranium was given, freely, by one good man to another good man.

It is right to rage against the injustices done by our governments.  We must call them out, and we must fight for what’s right.

But if you can’t even stand to see the symbols created to inspire people to be better, and rail against those, then you’re just confusing cynicism for realism.

not to be dramatic, but Okoye telling her bitch ass husband she would end him without hesitation when he tried to manipulate her changed me as a person and cured my depression. 

“would you kill me my love?”

“for wakanda? No question.”

a woman in my theater: “oH I HEARD THAT!!!!”

Listen.  LISTEN.  *cups your face in my hands*  Listen to me.  I have never so perfectly and purely seen a Paladin depicted in a movie as I saw in Okoye.  Lawful good to her core.  Pure, unvarnished loyalty to Wakanda and her people evident in every goddamned motion.  Dignified, graceful, reverent respect for the rules of her country and its greater good.

There is something so beautiful about faith, something that just burns through with a beautiful glow that lights up someone’s eyes and every expression.  There is a confidence and a peace that is both palpable and enviable when faith has been tested and come through intact. You could so hear it in her voice.

Personal shit is great, and I’m glad she was seen in a loving relationship.  The Lone Woman Warrior trope is worn thin, and I’m sure even thinner for black women who are often not allowed to be lovable people on screen.  But the core of the Paladin is ‘there is something greater than I, and I will sacrifice everything for it’, and it was beautiful to not only see that happen on screen but see her proved right, see her win, in one case by not even raising her weapon.  She stood firm in her faith and the narrative said yes, it said this is just, it said your very faith will protect you from harm.  And she’s not seen as hard or cold edged weapon for that.  The imagery around her in that moment is more like a saint or an angel, glowing and reaching out a peaceful hand to a symbol of one of the tribes of her country.  Her country loves her back.

Okoye doesn’t just love her country.  She doesn’t just serve her country.  She doesn’t just believe in her country.  She has unshakable faith in an absolute truth: Wakanda Forever.  

She is elevated for her faith as much as her skill.  

It’s fucking breathtaking.

So here’s a scene I got in my head after seeing the trailers for Black Panther and Infinity War! o/ I’m super excited to see the fantastic Wakandan wardrobe designs, along with the new arm Bucky will be showing off! Though, uhh… what I drew is far from accurate as I could only find fuzzy screenshots to reference, lol… Had to BS most of it… and I definitely exaggerated the gold bits! Anyway, I originally hoped that Tony Stark would be the one to replace his arm with a fresh design, to be a bright new starting point between them – but I’m pretty happy with the idea of T’Challa gifting him this during his recovery period. Great way to make up after scaring him so badly in Civil War, eh? ////
