What piqued Miller’s interest was how “understanding” and “helpful” Sherlock was, traits the actor believes were rarely communicated. “In the books, I found him to be a much more understanding guy. I feel that he really likes people a little bit more than I had seen recently — not that he can necessarily communicate that very well. He likes the underdog, and he likes people who are downtrodden, who are having a hard time. He generally wants to help. I found him to be a much more helpful person, so I tried to put a bit of that in, even though he doesn’t quite pull it off.” [x]
The haunting beauty of Germany’s WWII bomb craters.

Huh. What a weird concept, honestly. Will be thinking about this framing.
This reminds me a lot of the craters at Pointe du Hoc in Normandy. Rather than fill in the craters left in the wake of the D-Day invasion, the French left them as a testament to the destruction of war.
Pre-Serum Steve's Medical Forms
The linked post got kind of long, so here’s the tl;dr version for tumblr:
- The only things we actually know for sure were on MCU Steve Rogers’s medical history forms were asthma and household contact with a tuberculosis patient.
- Asthma, in Steve’s childhood, was an extremely serious illness that would have meant he had severe medical restrictions on daily activity (which he frequently ignored) and was living under a constant threat of sudden death (which may help explain his attitude toward parachutes.)
- Extensive household contact with TB was enough to get him a 4F by itself; he was likely an asymptomatic TB carrier which, under the WWII Army’s rules, made him a (minor, but real) infection risk for other soldiers.
- Most of the lists of Steve Rogers’ “canonical disabilities” which are going around are based on cherry-picked and ahistorical readings of extremely contradictory prop canon.
- Which doesn’t mean you need to ignore them, but it is extremely important to consider any such lists of medical conditions within their historical and cultural contexts, because that can drastically change their meaning, especially within a disability narrative. If you’re going to write about young Steve’s health, write him with whatever problems you want, but please, please do your research.
