aka, This Isn't the Blog You're Looking For...now with random stuff, including Avengers, Jeremy Renner, and whiny posts about my life and writing.
It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.

Except, weirdly, Brett Dalton isn’t getting a lot of hate. There’s apparently a massive campaign on Facebook to make him not evil.
And yet everyone’s willing to accept it of Jasper (except the teeny tiny Sitwell fandom, and let’s face it, he’s not white so we don’t count to Marvel).
Just saw Cap 2 this weekend, and if Sitwell’s supposed to be an actual bad guy, he’s like the least competent actual bad guy possible — up to and including not only telling the heroes what they wanted to know but giving them as much specific and helpful detail as possible given the circumstances.
Yup. I am still having issues believing Jasper is truly a bad guy, whereas I’m having absolutely no trouble with the idea of Ward being a bad guy (in fact, this is the most I’ve enjoyed his character ever). So yeah.
After my initial knee-jerk reaction (not wanting someone on Coulson’s team to be a bad guy), I realized that I’m okay with Ward being a villain. He’s acting with the conviction that what he’s doing is the right thing. I actually don’t want him to turn out to be a triple agent.
Sitwell, on the other hand, better be working a deep cover. I really don’t want him to be a bad guy. And until my theory that he’s a triple agent is actively disproved in canon, my headcanon is that he’s a good guy.
