What I love about this isn’t just Jane being a chivalrous little princette (a prince, but a girl, but not a princess. is that word? idk) and always opening doors for Maura. It’s that Maura always lets Jane open doors. If two pals are walking along and a wild door appears, whoever gets there first typically opens it for the other one, right? And logic would suggest either of them might get to the door first about half the time, right? So why else would we not ever see Maura opening doors for Jane? When she could reasonably reach for the doorknob just as easily as Jane, such as in gifs 2 and 3, she either hangs back slightly or just gets there and waits. She likes that Jane likes to be her Opener of Doors and she likes to let her do it.
I have thought this so many times
Look at the first gif. That’s Natasha Romanov, master assassin, who just went toe-to-toe with the Hulk and lived. She’s just been told her partner in crime needs to be taken out.
Look at the second gif. That’s Natasha Romanov, master of the murder game, and she’s preparing to take out one of the only people in the world that she’s close to.
Look at the third gif. That’s Agent Romanov, legend of the criminal underworld, and she’s started putting together everything she knows about her target, every weakness she can exploit, every way she could get the upper hand.
Look at the fourth gif. That’s the Black Widow, the woman that makes Mob Bosses wet the bed, who haunts the nightmares of every damn low-life in the crime circle, and she motherfucking copies.
a reason I love this scene so much is because she was /scared/ of the hulk, like any sane human would be. and she was never portrayed as weaker for being scared, and she fought past it like an actual character. and that’s what I really love: it was a dimension, not just the one dimensional “strong” women characters that we’ve been getting (not that they’re all bad. Zoe, man) that are never ever allowed to be both scared and fucking badass and capable. and we need more characters that can be both, or badass and mourning, or badass but still feminine (stereotypically). because that shows females watching this that yes, you can be scared out of your fucking mind and still be someone who is capable enough to be the best in the world.
Everything about this.
“One of my friends decided to have a disney princess themed brithday party, so I decided to do something different and dress up as Emma, as my boyfriend arrived to take me to the party he got out of his car dressed as Regina, complete with blazer, pencil skirt, wig and heels. I was so shocked and he just struts up to me and say “I told you when we started dating that I would cosplay the shit out of your otps”“
I love you both and I haven’t even met you.
Share pictures, please and thank you!
// Fake movie poster and synopsis #25: SHIELD
(Swan Queen / Bering & Wells)
SHIELD has always made use of people with special powers to protect and serve the nation, but when disaster threatens to strike with a vengeance, even the agents loyal to SHIELD won’t be enough. SHIELD’s Director (James Earl Jones) is forced to recruit some people he’s been told outright never to touch, no matter their powers. They are: master thief Emma Swan, who can open any lock and come and go undetected (J. Morrison), extremely efficient former assassin, Regina Mills (L. Parrilla), walking computer Myka Bering (J. Kelly), and Helena Wells (J. Murray), who can turn even the most harmless object into a deadly weapon. Will the Director be able to keep the women focused on their task? And what happens when feelings enter the mix?
