Dec 2nd, 2014

 

I sit on the floor of my new bedroom typing on my old laptop in. Thanks to the moving guys putting my bed in the middle of the U-Haul behind rows of stuff, I slept on this floor.

 

And yet, I cannot find it in myself to complain about anything. This new house is a magical wonderland. It is enormous, first of all. I have never lived in a house this big and have only ever even been inside one when visited my cousins who are quite literally millionaires.

 

The house itself is old, but the interiors are all new. Apparently the last family who lived here left the house in quite a sorry state, so the Landlady replaced everything. New carpets in the bedrooms, hardwood floors throughout the rest of the house, new oven, refrigerator, microwave, sink, and dishwasher. New doors, new lighting, new heating/cooling system – heck there’s even ceiling fans in every bedroom. It is like having a brand new house, but at the price of an old house.

 

I love this house. I don’t know how I feel about living in Mountain Home yet; but good God do I love this house.

 

 

A few hours have passed since I wrote that first part. We unloaded the U-Haul. I now have my bed in my room, and the temptation to sleep on something softer than the floor is strong. However, I must remain awake because the internet people are coming at some point.

 

There is much to do. I need to move some boxes from the garage to other places in the house, so that we can all get our stuff once we’re settled in. Plus they’re on their way with a second load of our junk from the old house. Including my TV. I want my TV. This house is far too quiet.

 

In the daylight I can now see the backyard. I like it. It’s small, and a large portion of the yard itself is taken up by the back porch and a paved in section, and also a basketball court. Plus there’s a shed. All in all in means very little actual grass for mowing. That pleases me.

 

 

A few more hours have passed and now the Suddenlink guy is hooking up the internets. We left our router in Missouri, and it is being brought on the second load (that shall also bring the rest of my stuff.)

 

Still, with any luck I will be online (admittedly from a wired connection in the sun room) very shortly, and all will be well in the world.

 

… well, except that I still have a metric fuckton of stuff to do today; BUT I’m probably going to blow it off and goof around online because I’ve done that so seldom lately. ;_;

 

Of course, if you are reading this, then that means that the internet is online! Though if the only person reading this is me, in my kitchen, freezing my feet off on this cold floor without the capacity to get online – then I shall be sad.

 

At least I have pizza.

 

There’s some sort of problem with the cable hookup in my room. I may not have TV in my room. I rarely actually watch TV anyway, and I will have Netflix and DVDs; but still. I like having TV. Hopefully this shall eventually be solved.

 

Oh well. I still have pizza, and I still really love this new house.

 

 

Since I first began to write this latest update, I have received unfortunate news. The cables that are in the walls right now are no good. We’ll need to get new cables installed. It may be a few days before everything is up 100%, but he is trying to at least get one spot where the internet will be available.

 

If you’re reading this, then he succeeded.

 

 

With each passing minute I grow ever more concerned. I don’t even know what this guy is doing now. I’m beginning to fear the internet may not be connected tonight at all. I can’t blame this on SuddenLink, but how they respond to a problem will go a big way in my first impression with them.

 

I pray SuddenLink will be the awesome internet I’ve always craved; and not a cold carbon copy of Mediacom. (Actually they’re supposed to be giving us 75mb per second speed, so they’d actually be amazingly better than Mediacom even if things are a bumpy installation.)

 

I can hear him speaking on the phone outside, but can’t make out what he’s saying. I hope it’s not “I can read minds and I shall kill this man who doubts us”. That would be weird. SAVE ME COULSON!

 

… I don’t have TV or internet and I’m stuck on my old laptop that has none of my unfinished stories or Steam. And all my books are packed away. I AM BORED.

 

 

Daring duck of mystery, champion of right,

Swings out of the shadows, a dark wing of the night,

Somewhere some villain plots, but he’s out of luck

Here comes – Darkwing Duck!
(when there’s trouble you call DW)
Darkwing Duck!

Let’s Get Dangerous.


Darkwing Duck!

 

… I’m bored and I’m not going to sing 90’s cartoon theme songs with a stranger in the house. So I’m typing them.

 

Sometimes, Some crimes, go slipping through the cracks,

But these two, Gumshoes, are picking up the slack

There’s no case too big, no case too small,

 

Okay so he left. The situation is not good. Going to have to replace most of the cables. I have a modem I can connect to in a few minutes so hopefully I’ll be online tonight.

 

online but I have to sit on the living room floor to use the computer so I may not be on much until this whole thing is resolved.

I’ve been thinking about the MCU lately, and I think I figured out some stuff about Cap 3…


We know Cap 3 will be based on the “Civil War” story in the comics. We also all hope it won’t suck like Civil War did.

 

It’s heavily implied that Stark is responsible for Ultron. Whether he creates Ultron or just restores him or finishes him or whatever, the big implication is that Ultron will be Stark’s responsibility.

I’m thinking Age of Ultron is going to have a pretty high body count. Not in terms of Avengers – but in terms of civilians. I think entire cities are going to be wiped out by the robot apocalypse that is Ultron.


In the wake of this, Stark feels overwhelming guilt. He realizes that Ultron wasn’t the way to protect mankind – instead it almost doomed them. And who did save mankind? The Avengers.

So Tony becomes Secretary of Defense, which mirrors some stuff in the comics, and he becomes the driving force behind the Superhuman Registration Act.


Now the Act in the comics was never quite clear on what it said, and it had a lot to do with secret identities – something the movies don’t bother with. So how could they make the Act better?

By having it instead basically say “Anyone with Superpowers must work for the government to protect the people; and any superhumans who refuse will be imprisoned.”

 

Rounding up people and forcing them to either serve the government or go to jail? Cap will see this as unacceptable, because it’s a very slippery slope and can easily fall into what would be very familiar territory for him.

So Cap opposes the act, and Iron Man actually serves as the antagonist of Cap 3. Not a villain; just an antagonist. Stark is so consumed with guilt that he can’t see how dangerous his solution is. In the end, Crossbones – aka that guy from Cap 2 – kills Cap.

As Cap is lying and dying in Tony’s arms, he makes one final appeal. He points out that if he hadn’t taken down SHIELD there would be no need for Ultron, so he’s just as guilty as Stark – and he’d beg Stark to undo his new mistake before its too late.

Stark would finally see that he’s the butthole in all of this, and would go against the Act. We have the big funeral for Cap (with all the Avengers in a cameo) and then a post credits scene where Stark approaches Bucky to become the new Cap.

 

… Oh, and also a scene where Stark resurrects SHIELD and a Coulson cameo.

Why? You ask? By 2016 when Cap 3 comes out, Agents of SHIELD will be in their fourth season. By then the whole “Underground SHIELD” thing will have worn a bit thin.

 

That’s another reason why Stark will be Secretary of Defense in Cap 3 – because we saw in Cap 2 that Secretary Pierce was also the Head of the Council. Now we don’t know if Powers Booth’s character from Avengers was the Secretary of Defense, but it would make sense since 1) he was the American on the council, 2) he was able to order a nuclear strike of NYC and 3) he’s the only councilor who doesn’t return for Cap 2.


And yeah, the Secretary of Defense trying to nuke the largest city in America? That’ll get you fired. Hence why Pierce became SecDef. And Pierce couldn’t have been SecDef before Cap 2 for too long, or why didn’t HYDRA act sooner?

And there you have my theories for Cap 3 and a lot of nerding out on details that no one cares about. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
