In here, you’re not the greater good. You’re part of a system.
I was reading tfios again and I came to the part where Augustus first takes out a cigarette and Hazel starts yelling at him for smoking and I was thinking what if Augustus actually did smoke and he was just like oh fuck I really like this girl how do I bullshit my way out of this umm A METAPHOR!! Yeah that sounds pretentious enough!! Nice one Waters
Emily Vancamp as Sharon Carter in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”
Here’s an example of what we call a “soft no”. Sharon turns down Steve’s offer in a way that’s meant not to insult him but never actually uses the word “no”.
Steve clearly gets the message, though, and importantly offers to leave her alone. Sharon’s comment afterwards gives him an opportunity to try again later, but he doesn’t press and respects her rejection of his company even though it’s probably hurt his feelings a bit.
Just in case you ever wonder “What would Captain America do?”; there you go.

Okay but imagine:
- Peter Parker going to a fan convention as Spiderman
- Peter Parker getting compliments on his Spiderman costume
- Peter Parker entering a Spiderman Costume Contest
- Peter Parker losing said contest
- Peter Parker losing the contest to Deadpool
