That sounds cool. BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?

(Helicarrier Hulk wakes up, no control, attacks everyone. New York Hulk is good guy buddy only hurt bad guy. Wait! OK! Loki was harshing the vibe on the helicarrier. No, wait further, Loki was just as there in New York. In fact, quite close to Mr. Grabby Hulk.)

I am continually drawn to this dumb film by the interaction between Downey and Ruffalo. I am continually put off by this dumb film by how dumb it is.

Wow, look at this! It’s 2014, and people are still saying things like this! Amazing!!! :D Here, let me explain to you why, and how:

First of all, why do people keep forgetting that The Incredible Hulk happened?? In that film it was shown that Bruce can actually control the Hulk when he deliberately hulks out.

Please notice that Bruce hulked out on the helicarrier because something blew up and he was thrown so hard he fell one floor down through the window. It was obvious that Bruce was hurt and in danger.

Hulk exists to protect Bruce, Bruce was in danger, you do the math.

Not to mention that Bruce was understandably angry at Natasha and Fury because he felt like they’d lied to him. (Therefore, causing Hulk to went after Natasha).

Manhattan Hulk showed up because Bruce ‘asked’ him to. Because he fucking did it on purpose. The Hulk is the physical manifestation of Bruce’s emotions — all his anger, frustration, empathy, sadness, disappointment, sympathy, love, hate, everything. That’s why Hulk knew which are the bad ones and which are the good ones, that’s why he saved Tony from falling off the sky, that’s why he listened to Steve’s orders. Hulk isn’t just some mindless beast who has no feelings whatsoever. He recognised and saved Betty in the midst of his rampage in TIH, looked hesitant when he saw the fear in Natasha’s eyes (it was brief but it was there), punched Thor as a payback, etc. Hulk is not that simple.

Bottom line is, that Bruce can control the Hulk to some degree when he has the option or actually gets to choose, and that’s not what happened on the helicarrier.

So, yea, that’s how.

In this post the uneducated are taught that The Hulk isn’t a mindless monster born simply out of rage.

Anybody gonna mention that our lowdown was given to us DIRECTLY FROM MR. BRUCE HIMSELF?!

Took me until that last comment to realize it is actually Mark Ruffalo, the actor who planed Bruce Banner, who left that incredibly informative comment. Much respect, sir!

…that username says “markoruffalo”, with an o in it, and from what I’ve seen of markruffalo on Tumblr, he probably wouldn’t address fan opinions quite in that manner.

Or else I’m not getting the joke. >.>

For a moment or two while scrolling down, the first picture completely looked like Ichabod and Abbie, and for that moment or two, I completely shipped it.

(As opposed to, OH MY GOSH THEY ARE SO CUTE SO CUTE I WANT TO DIE LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE TOGETHER HE RESPECTS HER SO MU-HU-HU-HUUUUUCH.)

(I mean, as in, wow, yeah, go for it.)

(Sorry, Katrina! I mean no disrespect.)

This code update includes many improvements to the Archive FAQ, our help section for new and experienced users alike. This part of the site grows and changes with the Archive, and will see even more improvements in future updates. For now, we offer these new features for your enjoyment:

  • You can now browse our FAQs in languages other than English! Since both the FAQs and their translations are a work in progress, only a few categories have translations right now. We’ll be adding more during the coming months, and will update outdated information across all sections.
  • As soon as at least one FAQ category (e.g. Pseuds, Bookmarks, Comments, etc.) is available in a language, that language will show up in the dropdown menu at the top right of the main FAQ index. Only translated categories will be listed, so if you can’t find the information you’re looking for, please refer back to the English index. (Work in progress!)
  • There are now buttons on the main index to show all available questions (“Expand Categories”) and to hide them all again (“Collapse Categories”), so you can skim the page or search for exactly the information you’re interested in.
  • At the top of each category, you’ll find a list of available questions, so you can quickly jump to just the answer you need.
  • The system now allows for direct links to each question/answer pair on a page (e.g. How do I subscribe to a work?), which wasn’t fully supported before.
  • The new FAQs have “pretty” URLs, which means they don’t just contain the id of the FAQ category (as in, /archive_faqs/17), but rather the title of the page (as in, /faq/orphaning).
  • Contrary to expectations in our original announcement, there will be no broken links. Old links (e.g. archiveofourown.org/archive_faqs/7) will automatically redirect to the new pages (e.g. Pseuds).
  • Our public wrangling guidelines, which were previously (and somewhat awkwardly) part of the FAQ section, have gotten their own home! You can consult these pages when in doubt about how to best format a new tag, or if you’re wondering about specific wrangling concepts and policies.

\o/

(Translations of the announcement are available at the link in: Bahasa Indonesia, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Nederlands, Polski, Português, Русский, Suomi, Svenska.)

I don’t talk much about my OTW work here, but this whole thing just makes me SO HAPPY AND PROUD AND WHEE, I keep grabbing people and telling them, look you can read about the AO3 in Arabic now! HOW COOL IS THIS. (Some even feigned interest! \o/)

Writing the code, fixing bugs, coordinating with the translation team, doing the necessary server-side work, solving last-minute problems in a complete rush of, “oh hey, this bit doesn’t work, were we gonna deploy tomorrow?” and then coordinating the whole thing for go-live again was a huge amount of work, done by really not a lot of people. And it’s all done! \o/

If you follow the Release Notes (which few people do ._.), you’ll see that a handful of names tend to show up in the Credits section for every code update. I think most people don’t realize how few volunteers are involved in building the software and keeping the AO3 from falling over (while also maintaining full-time jobs and having some sort of family life, in most cases). And all of them pulled together in the past two weeks especially (but also all the time!) to make this FAQ update happen, and IT MAKES ME REALLY HAPPY AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOOK AT OUR FAQ YAY.

ahem. carry on.
