People are obsessed with analyzing my behavior.

I think anyone that's ever come across me will conclude that I'm low on the schizoid disorder scale, although Matt and Micro may disagree.

Consider me the United States of Frank.

OOC: Answers revealed [26 Mar 2006|03:47pm]
((OOC: By popular demand, a bunch of us that did yesterday's "Say 10 Things You'd Never Say to Someone's Face" meme are posting our answers, revealing what people we referred to in our posts.

Matching the people to the messages:

1. I never told you how much I feared you coming to harm. I never told you that I could be brought to my knees at the thought of you being taken from me. I never wanted to frighten you. I never told you enough how guilty I felt for leaving you during the war. I loved you beyond everything else. I still do. - Maria Castle

2. You aren't my enemy, yet I've physically harmed you more than any other innocent I've come across before. I know that you'll never see the world through my eyes, and believe it or not, I don't want you to. I don't want to hurt you, but there is no doubt in my mind that I'll hurt you again.- Daredevil/Matt Murdock

3. I came into your life accidentally. I couldn't help but think you were her for a while. My presence brought you nothing but sorrow and the destruction of everything you held dear in life. The fact that you forgave me affirms my faith that some of humanity is truly touched with grace and compassion. I'll do my best to protect you. You may never see me again, but I will watch over you. Mary, the young waitress from Punisher/Daredevil "Means & Ends"

4. I saw the man and woman you would become. I was humbled by it. - Frank's children

5. I will do my best to see you dead within a year. - twenty percent of the population of violent criminals extant in the world, particularly Bullseye, and Kingpin

6. I should have known you would come back. I knew you'd give up the war eventually. What I didn't expect was that you would switch sides.- Micro Lieberman

7. You have the cockiness of the young. That can be dangerous with the power you have. You need a classical education. Knowing what is true now is not enough to see you through life. - Jenny Quantum of the Authority

8. I appreciate your persistence, even when I'm shooting at you to scare you off. - Spider-man

9. Out of them all, I suspect we understand each other the best. - Logan/Wolverine

10. It was very hard for me to walk away from you. If he doesn't keep you safe, I will. Galina, the little Russian girl from "Punisher: Mother Russia"

11. It's rare to see a man that can turn his life around one hundred and eighty degrees for the better. That takes courage and insight. You have it. - Charlie from Lost

12. You are one of five people on the planet that I will let hug me. You're needed in the world. There's not enough of you. - Delight of the Endless, Shiva Wu San, Agent Artemis, and Tess

13. Despite your lunacy, I actually like you. - Alex Troven

14. The fact that you listen to me and aren't intimidated by me are two qualities that will get you far in life. You're a good mother. - Teena Chan

15. Snotty, yes. Also highly intelligent and resourceful. I'm not sure the future you envision will ever come to pass, but I hope it does. - Warren Worthington/Angel))

Things I've never said [25 Mar 2006|11:39am]

SATURDAY, MARCH 25TH, 2006


I'm a private man with my emotions, but I'm going to do this virus meme.

"Tell me something that you normally would never say to me. Repost if you wish.

And for me: List ten things you want to say to people you know but you never will, for whatever reason. Don't say who they are. Use each person only once."

1. I never told you how much I feared you coming to harm. I never told you that I could be brought to my knees at the thought of you being taken from me. I never wanted to frighten you. I never told you enough how guilty I felt for leaving you during the war. I loved you beyond everything else. I still do.

2. You aren't my enemy, yet I've physically harmed you more than any other innocent I've come across before. I know that you'll never see the world through my eyes, and believe it or not, I don't want you to. I don't want to hurt you, but there is no doubt in my mind that I'll hurt you again.

3. I came into your life accidentally. I couldn't help but think you were her for a while. My presence brought you nothing but sorrow and the destruction of everything you held dear in life. The fact that you forgave me affirms my faith that some of humanity is truly touched with grace and compassion. I'll do my best to protect you. You may never see me again, but I will watch over you.

4. I saw the man and woman you would become. I was humbled by it.

5. I will do my best to see you dead within a year.

6. I should have known you would come back. I knew you'd give up the war eventually. What I didn't expect was that you would switch sides.

POOR TACTICAL PLANNING: EXHIBIT A [30 Jun 2005|07:57pm]
[ mood | working ]

I'm back.

Interesting night last night.

It's come to my attention that an international situation is currently reaching crisis point, involving TAVs being aided by The Tinkerer, abundantly funded by Latveria.

Someone has taken it upon himself to organize a strike team of operatives to resolve the situation. This someone has neglected to take the step of actually informing the mission operatives of their participation.

POOR TACTICAL PLANNING: EXHIBIT A

Shouldn't have left the files on the kitchen table, Fury. If this was your way of softening the blow, I don't play that game. Didn't Steve Rogers give you enough of a beating already?

Found some very interesting stuff on Matt, Luke, Kitty, Jessica, Banner, Natasha, Sam, Dustmite, Logan, Steve Rogers, Scott Summers, Samson, and Stark.

And me.

Mission Operatives: Hawkeye, Hulk, Frank Castle, War Machine, Sentry, Jessica Drew, and Warbird.

Rejected: Scott Summers, Leonard Samson, Falcon, Tony Stark, Mystique, Zebediah Killgrave, Kitty Pryde, Benjamin Grimm.

Excerpts:

KITTY PRYDE: "...too idealistic."
BEN GRIMM: "Too noticeable."
TONY STARK: "..of all the Avengers, he is often the one who asks the most questions....he needs answers too often."
FALCON: "...this one may be a little too over his head."
SCOTT SUMMERS: "..lacks certain killer instincts that this mission requires....the Frost situation warrants further observation."

FRANK CASTLE: Power Level 6. Psychotically high pain threshold.

Notes to Valentina: "I do know he would deliver...total annhilation of the enemy. He could probably single-handedly disrupt the infrastructure of Latveria for weeks."

Here's where it gets interesting:

"On the initial mission, I said no. But if that mission failed, we have no choice. Let loose the dogs of war. Drop Castle on the opposite side of Latveria as you did the Hulk, and see who gets to the middle first."

Fury, mind telling me exactly how you planned to get me to go anywhere for you? You want to put the Hulk and I on opposite sides of Latveria, and open up a betting pool to see who gets to the middle first? You want to put me in Latveria with Jessica, Banner, Carol Danvers, Sentry, War Machine, and Clint?

Explain.

What is your most treasured possession, and why? [07 May 2005|01:51pm]
[ mood | working ]

(Cross posted to theatrical_muse.)

My wedding ring.

In the summer of 1976, my wife and children were murdered in front of me.

My wedding ring represents all that I was, all that I was blessed with, and all the infinite possibilities that children bring to the world. It represents my wife Maria, and the light that she wrapped around my soul. It represents what I most want to experience again, the only thing that I want to have, when I die.

My loss gave me a new purpose.

My ring reminds me every moment, every hour, every day why I am who I am. I look at my ring, and I know why I am the Punisher. When I lost them, possibility died. My purpose, before that day in Central Park, was to be a husband, a father, to reconcile from the darkness of Vietnam. My purpose was to live, to love my wife, to cherish my children. That died when my family was taken. Everything else was stripped away. That loss was replaced by something else: the will to prevent, as much as I could, innocent people from that loss. Because I’ve lost the possibility of joy in my life, I never forget how precious it is. I never forget that others have it, and I never forget how easily it can be taken away.

***************************

I'd be interested to hear answers to the same question from my friends list.

Some things that The Punisher will never do. [16 Feb 2005|11:06am]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

WAR JOURNAL ENTRY
FEBRUARY 16TH, 2005


It's come to my attention that there is a class of people out there that write fiction about me. An interesting question was asked about how those of us portrayed in said fiction feel about it.

After some research last night, doesn't seem to be much fic of me around. I'm grateful. However, what is around is exceptionally bad. Some points I suggest aspiring writers remember about me:

1. I will not be swayed by your beauty. If you are on my list, looking like Cate Blanchett (who reminds me of Maria), Elektra, or Monica Belluci will not help you. I am not swayed by luscious lips, glowing eyes, or beautiful legs. I am going to end you, beautiful or not, if I have decided to.
2. I do not want to fuck Spider-man. it's been made abundantly obvious I find him irritating.
3. I like women. I don't have room for them in my life until very recently, but that is my sexual orientation. There is no subtext to me regarding this.
4. I will never, ever utter the words "so what does it feel like to kiss someone with a lip ring?" to Dave, as portrayed by a recent fanfic writer, who will now suffer a foreshortened lifespan.
5. Although I slept with a lot of women after Maria, that was never due to love. It was necessity, to further my goals. I slept with them for information, or to get close to someone I later destroyed. Rosalie Carbone is a good example.
6. I repeat, I like women.
7. Although I do not possess advanced graduate degrees, I am an educated, articulate, and perceptive man. You cannot do advanced intelligence work in a military career and lack perceptiveness, erudition, or a broad range of knowledge.
8. I do not speak in slang. I went to Catholic school. I can conjugate verbs correctly. Although I live for the most part in Brooklyn now, I do not sound like I am from Flatbush. I speak more than one language fluently; in fact, I speak a few languages outside of English.
9. I am not given to long expository speeches before I act, like my peers. If I bother to stop and say I'm going to kill you, that's either for a specific purpose, to gain a strategic advantage, or because I am going to kill you.
10. I am not arrogant. I know when I am outclassed. If I run from you, it's beecause I recognize that, not due to "not wanting to deal with my feelings."
11. Nothing scares me. That's not arrogance, that's fact. I can be startled, surprised, and taken aback, but nothing scares me. The fear part of me is dead.
12. I rarely, rarely suffer from indecision.
13. I do not kill everyone I go after. Prison has a purpose for me, and I send people there regularly.
14. I do not date, until very, very recently, and that's confined to one person. It should be abundantly obvious now that I believe in monogamy and respect the institution of marriage. I do not try to tempt women to my bed by telling them I have a big dick (even if true).
15. I have spent the majority of my life dedicated to work, not romance. That is the way it has been, and that is the way it will always be.
16. I do not secretly lust after Matt Murdock. I do not want to be beaten by Matt's billy clubs as part of a heavy BDSM scene. In fact, I do not like BDSM. I am not a top, I am not a bottom. Physical pain is a fact of my life; it holds no sensual attraction for me whatsover.
17. I am not right wing. I am NOT a patriot. I am someone who combines misanthropic tendencies with idealism, believe it or not. I see the most corrupt of human beings, the most craven, and the most evil. I also see good people. If I didn't believe that some were innocents, I wouldn't do what I do.
18. I have not slaughtered innocents.
19. I work alone. I will not team up with you unless forced to, to achieve a goal I want to achieve. Please note that my occasional teamings with Logan, Spidey, etc., were due to expediency, NOT COMRADERIE. Out of any of the people that I've teamed up with, I'm most like Logan, and I trust him the most. We have come to an understanding of late. THAT DOES NOT MEAN I LIKE HIM.
20. I am not a psychopath. People who attempt to portray me in fiction as such are lazy writers. It's a cop out for not delving in depth into characterization. I am not a sadist; pain is a means to an end. Writing that I enjoy dispensing pain implies that I enjoy my work. Enjoyment plays no part in what I do.
21. I do not drive a flashy car, unlike many of my peers. Driving a hopped up Hemi 'cuda with a skull on the hood is not wise in my line of work. I am not flashy.
22. I know what I have lost. I remember what it is to love.
23. Yes, I miss my wife and children. I think about them every single day. I think about them when I'm alone, all the time. That doesn't mean I'm going to ask you for help to resolve my feelings. My feelings will never be "resolved." People who have lost their children to violence rarely, if ever, "resolve" their feelings, nor do they "reconcile" to what happened.
24. I do talk about what happened to me, occasionally, to people I have sustained contact with. This is not therapy.
25. I do not have friends, since Micro. This doesn't mean that I don't hold some people in regard. I trust no one, except for Elektra. I do trust Nick Fury with regards to certain things, despite shooting him.
26. I do not regret turning down the job offer from God and his angels. I almost became a priest, before Maria. I believe in God. This does not mean I am reconciled to him or her in any way.
27. I live a strictly aescetic lifestyle. I give a large amount of the money I take from people I kill to other people.
28. I will never stop what I am doing. This does not mean that I don't wish the world was a place where I could.
29. I feel intensely. When I am alone, the thought of my wife has brought me to my knees on more than one occasion.
30. Don't try to talk to me while I am working. I will not put down my guns in the middle of a firefight to debate semantics with you. My idea of semantics is to punctuate my points with bullets.

In summation: how do I feel when I see myself portrayed in ANY fanfic? I'll tell you how I feel. I feel like taking the perps to an impromptu machining class.



The floor is open for discussion.

I don't take memes. I don't like them. They are a waste of time that could be better spent preparing for a night of justice.

But if I was someone to ever be caught by surprise, this would do it:

Lord of the rings
J.R.R. Tolkien: Lord of the Rings. You are
entertaining and imaginative, creating whole
new worlds around yourself. Well loved, you
have a whole league of imitators, none of which
is quite as profound as you are. Stories and
songs give a spark of joy in the middle of your
eternal battle with the forces of evil.


Which literature classic are you?

I do respect Frodo. The world needs more guys that pesevere like that, and I identify with the spiritual crisis. I'm a little suspicious of short people since the last team up with Logan, with the whole gang of midgets wielding chainsaws, but I don't see Frodo packing.

WAR JOURNAL December 3rd, 2004 - The Worst Corporate Massacre in History Goes Unpunished [03 Dec 2004|08:56am]
[ mood | angry ]

WAR JOURNAL ENTRY
DECEMBER 3RD, 2004


Today is the twentieth anniversary of the Union Carbide massacre in Bhopal, India. Over fifteen thousand died in the worst corporate massacre in the world's history.

I've been thinking about this for a long, long time.

These good people - the the International Campaign for Justice in Bhopal - have waited over twenty years for Justice in Bhopal. They haven't gotten it yet. Dow and Union Carbide never cleaned up the toxins remaining after the leak, and to this day the drinking water is polluted. They never faced trial. The requests of ICJB requests are simple: provide long term health care for those still affected, provide clean water, and face trial.

People watched their family members sicken, watched their blood turn black, and watched them die. Look at the faces of the dead on this site - and know that their deaths were needless, and were wrought by corporate profiteers who place little value on human life.

The Innocents that died, and died in extreme pain, suffered tragedy at the hand of corporate scum who put profit ahead of safety and human life. A lot of the survivors continue to suffer illness, cancer, and permanent disabilities as a result of the gas leak. These people need your help. The Sambhavna Clinic in Bhopal cares for the survivors, and could use your support.

Union Carbide - Dow Chemical been on my list for a long time. Union Carbide merged with Dow Chemical shortly after Bhopal, in a cowardly attempt to obscure their name and avoid taking responsibility. To this day they blame the leak on a "disgruntled employee" - and no evidence of this ever existed. I've been boycotting Dow products ever since then, and I mean every single Dow product that an individual might use. Dow does their best to try to get us forget what happened.

One of the things about me is that I never forget things like this.

I'm going to be taking a meeting with Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical, a visit very soon. Dow says they create value? Yeah. I say they create death.
