Jenn. 20 something living in the DC metro. This used to be a multi-fandom blog and then Marvel happened. Expect a mixed bag of television, comics, science, politics, and wailing about my inability to Adult properly. But mostly Marvel. And a hell of a lot of Steve/Tony. *In an effort to keep my dash manageable, I do not follow tumblrs that don't use tags. Use tags! They are handy and make the world a nicer place!*

The [Fort Yuma Quechan Tribe of Arizona], which has been raising funds and seeking grant proposals to build a skate park at the Fort Yuma Reservation on the Arizona-California border, said the charity launched earlier this year by Redskins owner Daniel Snyder approached it with a “blank check” and designs for a facility done in burgundy and gold, the team’s colors.

Nobody Is Surprised Washington Redskins Owner Is Exploitative Racist, film at 11.

The quote is here, but a better article about it is here (beware of autoplay video, sorry).

If I’d had this for RFM I would have posted it there, but since it’s my daily news post, I’ll just drop a link to support the Quechan Memorial Skate Park here.

I have just sampled Flying Dog’s Dead Rise Summer Ale, and as a Marylander I feel really fucking smug because against all logic a beer made with Old Bay is FUCKING DELICIOUS

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MY WHOLE LIFE.

(ALSO ITS OBVS. A VERB, A COMMAND: “MARVEL!”)

"how do I tag this character if the story they’re in takes place in one universe, but they’re from a potential alternate time-line and/or universe"

Tony Stark’s granddaughter, Rhodey Stark: 

[From Avengers #24, 2013.]
We don’t know for sure that she’s James Rhodes’ descendant; she could just be named in honour of Rhodey.
BUT COME ON that is totally Rhodey’s granddaughter. 

You know what that means, right? This means that one of Rhodey’s offspring married one of Tony’s offspring. Dear god, can you imagine how he took that news? Poor Rhodey.Either that, or mpreg. I prefer my version.

In theory, at least if we go by patriarchic naming conventions, it means that Tony’s son knocked up Rhodey’s daughter. I’m sure Rhodey was thrilled. 
Or Tony’s daughter kept her name and passed it on to her daughter; that’s very Stark. 
Either way I feel like Tony and Rhodey had a conversation at some point that involved shotguns.
