luckyboots said: Osiris, Danu, Odin, Zeus, Jupiter -- all the leaders. :)

Osiris: Do you believe in the underworld?

I find the concept of an underworld interesting, and mythology surrounding the world’s various concepts of the underworld is one of my absolute favourite areas of study (in my case, often paired with mortuary archaeology), and sometimes I kind of wish I believed in that sort of thing… but belief in spiritual and religious concepts really isn’t my jam.  

Danu: What is your relationship with your mother?

Generally very good.  There are some things that we scrap about (some of which are very serious, but many of which are kind of stupid, and… I’m gonna say often stem from one of us misinterpreting what the other was saying and then proceeding to NOT LISTEN GOD MOM.)  Honestly, we’d probably be friends, even if she weren’t my mom.  

Odin:What is your family like?

Uh.  Nerdy.  Even my mom who is also a total jock.  

Zeus:Are you a confident person?

Yes.  

One time I was in the car with my dad (a rare occurrence as mom usually drives) and I was saying something about sometimes being shy about meeting new people, and dad was like
"That’s ridiculous, you’re the most confident person I’ve ever met - I have no idea where that comes from, none of the rest of us are like that."
And I was “Well it comes from ‘what reason would I possibly have to not be confident?’ but that has absolutely nothing to do with being kinda shy around new people.”  

When I was taking archaeology people were like “do you have a backup career?  Nobody gets jobs in this field” and I was like “Comic book artist.”  (My subsequent move out of archaeology and into librarianship had nothing to do with job prospects or “backup career” nonsense, FYI.)  

I’m obnoxiously confident.  And I’m okay with that.  

Jupiter:Would people say that you are intimidating or fairly approachable?

This… is an interesting one.  I’m very approachable in professional contexts for sure (you can’t be good at reference work if you’re not).  And I’m approachable when I’m actively trying to be at bars and such…

BUT.  I’ve recently come to realize that I am buckets more intimidating than I often mean to be in social situations.  

And when I try to be intimidating, I am.  When I’m trying to be passively intimidating, people do things like clear out of my way on the sidewalk, make the decision to close their mouths instead of talking to me and/or catcalling me, defer to me in conversations and leadership decisions, etc.  

And when I’m trying to be actively intimidating, people tend to be genuinely frightened.  (I do not generally try to be actively intimidating.  It takes a hell of a lot to get me to that point.)

i’m waiting for someone to write epic meta on why the reason bucky is so popular with female fans is bc his storyline being about being stripped of agency and personal autonomy resonates particularly with female experiences
