I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.

Yadriel & Maria appreciation post ✿◕‿◕✿

HE SAID MORE THAN HE DID ALL SEASON. I THOUGHT HE DIDN’T CARE. I THOUGHT HE WAS JUST BEING NICE AND LETTING HIS BABY MAMA SEE THE BABY THAT HE PROBABLY DIDN’T REALLY WANT AND BARELY LOOKED AFTER BUT I WAS FUCKING WRONG. I WAS WRONG ABOUT HIM. HE’S JUST QUIET. THE DUDE IS STOIC AS FUCK AND HE FUCKING LOVES MARIA AND HE LOVES THAT BABY AND IT’S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL THE WAY HE GUSHES AND TALKS TO HER LIKE MARIA ASKED HIM TO DO BECAUSE HE WANTS HER TO GROW UP SMART AND LOVED.

But also look at how cute the baby is dressed in each visit. Who did that? Daddy did. But that’s exactly the kind of visual cue that gets lost when he’s getting judged for his bald head, tattoos and stoic (thuggish?) demeanor.

this scene made me cry SO  HARD I LOVED IT

His given name is James, but there are several Jameses in town, and there is only one Rhodes, so they just call him Rhodes. If you’re especially fond of him, the last syllable develops a lilt, an affectionate vowel sound; most people call him Rhodes, but there are a select few that call him Rhodey.

He is not remarkable, by any standard — he keeps his hair short and his face clean-shaven, is still spiritually bound to uniformity and scripted decorum, is courteous to elderly women, five-headed dragons, and sucking voids alike, and is secretly very fond of cats. Sometimes his rheumy, unblinking eyes can be startling, but everyone’s used to that now — it’s been years since he fell to Night Vale in a failing aircraft, some integral part of him burning away with the plane, a hole for his new and soon-to-be-beloved home to fill in the way only Night Vale knew how.
But a couple of times a week, he limps into the studio of Night Vale Community Radio, shares dixie cups of coffee and small bites of friendly conversation with an intern, and takes a moment to compose himself before coming face-to-face with the microphone.

His fingers on the Braille-covered prompt cards, his eyes staring into the spaces only he can see, he smiles broadly.

"Sometimes you are the hammer. Sometimes you are the nail. Sometimes you are a time-warping singularity, in which neither the hammer nor the nail exists, except in your melting mind. Welcome… to Night Vale."

Rhodey (possibly) canon

The one thing I think fanfic authors miss, is Rhodey went to MIT with Tony. His major was probably aerospace engineering, since many Air Force officer candidates major in this area. You know what another name for an aerospace engineer is? Rocket scientist.

Rhodey is a rocket scientist.

Rhodey is a rocket scientist, y’all. Treat him with the scientific respect he deserves.

Rhodey did indeed go to and graduate MIT for Aerospace Engineering in MCU canon.  that is legit.  He is a rocket scientist

tho, post MIT and probably during, his specialty became more weapons focused but no doubt he is quite knowledgeable in a lot of other related areas

        (via mayqueen517)

A note on rocket science and weapons from a rocket scientist with a more than passing knowledge of how rocket scientists function in the US Air Force. :D

It is completely reasonable for an aerospace engineer to go into weapons, especially missiles. And it makes sense for Rhodey to be a missile guy, since he’s working with Tony and what do we see Tony giving the Air Force at the beginning of the first Iron Man movie? The Jericho Missile.

Missiles are at their heart, a rocket problem. 

For a missile, aerospace engineering is required, in at least three parts. (1) The aerodynamics of the missile, (2) the guidance, navigation and control of the missile, and (3) the propulsion system of the missile. Now if we extend this problem to Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs), you also have to consider the astrodynamics problem, so this is an additional area in a missile design that an aerospace engineer would be required.

Whether Rhodey initially put himself on a path to study missiles, I can’t say. What I can say is something about the idea that Rhodey is “no doubt knowledgeable in other related areas.” This is undeniably true. The Air Force does not actually seek to over specialize their officers. They instead put them on a path that leads them towards a more “jack of all trades master of none” philosophy. So it is highly likely that Rhodey spent time in all areas related to Aerospace Engineering—including airplanes, helicopters, and satellites. To get as far as he is in the military, a Colonel, Rhodey would also have been required to do multiple over seas tours and probably spent some time doing nothing more than being a glorified admin while he was a lowly LT or Captain. (As a general rule, butter bar lieutenants are trusted with exactly zero responsibility. I can just imagine Rhodey calling up his buddy Stark to complain and Stark being like “weeeelllll, you could always come work for me” and Rhodey being all like “NOT ON YOUR LIFE” and Rhodey just continuing to press through and making it clear he is worth something until finally he’s a first LT and they actually trust him with something.)

If Rhodey did not get his master’s degree from MIT, which is likely if he was ROTC though not impossible, he probably went to AFIT for his later degrees. And Rhodey would *at least* have a master’s degree, since a master’s degree is essentially required to ascend from the rank of Captain to Major. I say *essentially* because the Air Force occasionally changes its policy on this. Sometimes it’s absolutely required and sometimes it’s merely recommended. Regardless, Rhodey would at the very least have a master’s degree. It’s also highly likely that for a Colonel working in a research based division, he would be required to have his PhD (considering it’s Air Force weapons, I’m going to make the guess that he probably works in something similar to AFRL Munitions Directorate, though perhaps not that particular group since Rhodey doesn’t seem to be based out of Eglin AFB). As a full bird Colonel, it’s also highly likely that Rhodey would in fact be IN CHARGE of the entire research directorate. 

So yes, not only would Rhodey be highly knowledgeable in all areas of Aerospace Engineer, he would probably also have a PhD in it, and is probably in charge of whatever weapons division he runs.

For example USAF research colonels, check out these biographies of current USAF colonels: here and here.

^^And THIS is why I began this meta…for wonderful comments like these. This stuff is golden. Thank you, all of you, for your wonderful additions. So now we know. Rhodey is very likely DR. JAMES RHODES, thank you.

to be honest one of my favorite parts of the doomstar requiem is how murderface looks back during the part of ”en antris et stella fatum cruenti” when they’re all surrounded

image

honestly i think he’s just looking at his surroundings but i like to pretend it’s as if he can’t believe his bandmate could be singing about the obvious at a time like this

"I THINK THIS SETUP IS A TRAP"

"didn’t i fucking call that right before we went in"

"YES I’M TELLING YOU THERE’S NO WAY TO ESCAPE"

"pickles this is not helping us with our situation"

"THEY’VE GOT US SURROUNDED WE’RE UNARMED AND NAKED"

"maybe we wouldn’t be if we hadn’t given those broke musicians our laser-shooting lyric pen, razor wire guitar string, poison dart drum sticks, and bass pick throwing star"

"NO ONE’S ON THEIR WAY TO COME AND SAVE THE DAY, NO ONE’S ON THEIR WAY, NO ONE’S ON THEIR WAY"

"you just said that"

"NO ONE’S ON THEIR WAY TO COME AND SAVE THE DAY"

WOULD YOU STOP SINGING

BEAUTIFUL
