The installation artist Tatiana Blass addresses the myth of Homer's Odyssey. Penelope was the wife of Odysseus and waited twenty years at the beach on her husband while he enjoyed his adventures. In order not to be distracted by annoying admirers of waiting, she looked for meaningful work. She wove a shroud for three years for her stepfather. Penelope promised to select a candidate when she had done, because no one believed in the return of her husband. But secretly she bound parts of the shirt on again at night choose to have no other and to remain faithful to their adventurers.

The installation is located in the chapel of São Paulo Morumbin. Blass lives and works in Brazil. The loom is located where the altar was supposed to be. On one side is a long red carpet spread out throughout the threads that lead into the loom are completely confused on the back. The red yarn is fed through holes in the wall outside, where it covers the whole garden. One wonders, similar to Penelope's story, whether the piece is being woven or untied.

At the end of The First Avenger, Fury is the first dude to walk up to Steve and say, “Sorry to tell you this, but you’ve been asleep for a long time.” At the beginning of The Avengers, Nick drags Steve into the fight, cajoles him, they even have a fun joke bet. Then in The Winter Soldier, Nick trusts Steve over everyone else, goes to him for help, talks to him like a peer, takes his advice.

Steve’s soul interaction with Coulson’s has been “creepy guy who has my cards and died.”

Why do so many people make these relationships the other way around?

i don’t think you understand how important coulson is though. he’s white and has a suit. that’s how important he is. 

no, cmon, coulson is charming and humble, fury is a scary authority figure who gets really sarcastic with people. i can see why ficcers would rather ship coulson. if nothing else, someone of fury’s caliber is very difficult to write unless you have some experience of being a stern motherfucker who takes no shit. most ficcers have never mentored anyone, either, it’s a deep mystery to them how it works.

also, hooking up with your boss can be a squicky idea to a lot of people, me included.

These are good points, but I’ve seen in fandoms when the boss character isn’t black— is white or from an anime— no one has any problems having the boss (captain, sensei, professor, manager) and his subordinates fucking like rabbits. there’s actually a lot of kink there. writing sarcastic, angry, reserved authority figures (having a ton of sex) doesn’t daunt amateur ficcers when those authority figures aren’t black. See: Severus Snape, the ultimate stern, scary, sarcastic, overtly nasty asshole who fucks his way through the entirety of Hogwarts and probably a good chunk of the forbidden forest. 

Also, see: Coulson is Hawkeye’s boss, nominally, and there is a galloping shit ton of kinkfic that plays on just that dynamic, even though there’s more material between Coulson and his boss, than Hawkeye and his boss. AO3 logs 4,700 results for Coulson/Fury and 11,600 for Coulson/Clint. 

You’ll note that Rhodey, Tony Stark’s black friend, gets pretty much the same invisibled treatment by fandom despite being friendly, outgoing, funny, sweet, supportive, and Tony’s best friend since he was a teenager. They have a ton of chemistry in the Iron Man movies. In fandom? Not so much. 

Black characters and their chemistry, sexuality, and even their relationships with white characters, are consistently ignored by fic writers who certainly don’t think of themselves as racist, but just don’t…. know what to do about race, I guess, or have quietly internalized that black people just aren’t of any particular importance. It’s a pretty blatant pan-fandom thing. It’s not an isolated ‘Nick Fury is scary’ problem. 

Not to mention ‘Nick Fury is scary’ isn’t a judgment in a vacuum. If you say ‘Nick Fury is a scary black man,’ you’ll quickly realize the implications.

(And I don’t imagine the poster meant to say that! But there are, nevertheless, implications to calling a black man too scary to ship.)
