"It’s a metaphor, see. You put the bacon thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the…um…well, you eat it, actually, ‘cause it’s there and you’re nearly tasting it. So it’s not a metaphor. Um. I have no idea where I was going with that. Want some bacon?"

How I Think Isaac Reacted to the Cigarette Metaphor

  • (Isaac and Gus are just casually playing video games)
  • (Gus whips out a cigarette)
  • Isaac: Dude, you smoke in the house my mom will be pissed. She's afraid I might get cancer or something. (smirks at his own joke)
  • Gus: I'm not lighting it.
  • Isaac: What?
  • Gus: It's a metaphor.
  • Isaac: Oh God, not this again. (Pauses game) Can't you just write poetry like a normal pretentious teen.
  • Gus: I can't write.
  • Isaac: That's probably for the best, actually.
  • Gus: Can you unpause the game?
  • Isaac: Will you tell me what the oh so beautiful metaphor is.
  • Gus: You put the thing that can kill you between your lips, but you never light it. You never give it the power to kill you.
  • Isaac: Do you just keep a notepad next to you while you watch Soap Operas, or are you too busy jacking off to them.
  • Gus: This is a good metaphor!
  • Isaac: Like that one about crushing all flowers because they look as beautiful dead as alive?
  • Gus: I-
  • Isaac: Or when you walked around wearing a sock on your head to prove that the reverse works as well?
  • Gus: Well-
  • Isaac: Or that one time-
  • Gus: Would you just let me do my freaking metaphors?
  • (Isaac smirks and turns back to the game)
  • Isaac: Well, I guess if you want to put a fag between your lips, that's your business. No judgment.
  • (Gus throws a pillow at Isaac, and they both laugh and resume the game)


if the broadway and theatre community dislikes bootlegs so much and don’t want people filming their shows they need to work on making theatre a more accessible form of media by filming shows professionally because you know they talk a lot about being a very open welcoming community but don’t do anything to make that community welcoming to people who can’t afford to see shows or people who live in rural areas and are literally unable to attend shows at all

"Not a perfect soldier, but a good man."

Steve Rogers may be a superhuman who could jump off planes without parachutes, but he’s also just a kid from Brooklyn. 

Clark Kent may be a god who shoots fire from his eyes, but he’s also just a farm boy from Smallville.

"Make a better world than ours."

Steve Rogers, orphaned and frail and impoverished, who would speak up when nobody would, who would fight and claw at bullies twice his own size, who would throw himself over a rogue grenade to protect his comrades. 

Clark Kent, lost and hated and rejected, who would risk exposure rather than stop helping people, who would let bullies punch him rather than hurt them, who would inspire his own tormentor because of kindness instead of bitterness.

They do not become Superman or Captain America because of that emblazoned S or that star-spangled shield. But because of who they are before the world gets to know them. Because of who they are since the very beginning of their stories, and who they have continued to be, despite all the struggles and difficulties.
