The first time Sif introduces her brother Heimdall to the Avengers, Tony says, “I don’t really see the family resemblance.”
Sam Wilson laughs and says, “You wanna talk family resemblance, you should meet my cousin Wade.”

OKAY NO LET ME EXPLAIN YOU A THING.
My ENTIRE CHILDHOOD, this is what I imagined Hermione looked like. A curly haired girl of color who looked something like me, who had a hard time making friends like me because she was intelligent and sometimes she thought too much and didn’t have a problem losing herself in a book. I even ARGUED, tooth and nail with the other students in my class about my headcanon and questioned why she COULDN’T look like me, what was wrong with her looking like me, and why they felt she HAD to be white.
When I found out she wasn’t thanks to the movies, there was a kind of disconnect from her character, and the way I closed that disconnect was to ignore canon and keep picturing her as someone like me. I stopped talking about my headcanon to avoid arguments and name calling and teasing, but I never ever let go of the idea of a POC Hermione.
So to the artist, THANK YOU FOR DRAWING MY HERMIONE.
Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present the new Peter Pan and Wendy of the new movie, currently being filmed, Pan (2015).
(due for release 17th of July, 1015)
*pauses mid-celebration bc of the backlash i know this little girl is going to get for obtaining this role*
Oh my god. The backlash will be awful. I’m praying for this poor girl because I know they casted her to make up for the Rooney Mara white girl playing Tiger Lily.
Agh. Boo to white washing Tiger Lily. But this Wendy is super cute tho.
