AJ check your inbox no spoilers I promise someone did a thing
I was reading when you posted this omwwwwwwww.
update: the bar was great and half off EVERYTHING; ginger beer is great, especially with whiskey; A and I have plans to go next week; all I know about this episode is that it hasn’t changed agentvictoriahand’s disappointment in the show because that was the post right below the new text post button.
Also my tolerance has dropped dramatically from when this friend and I used to live together. Or maybe I should eat real dinner and later.
(cont.) Half the pranks are things Barton could never get up to on his own; they require security clearances and upper-level access. He’s smart and crafty but even Clint Barton can’t do some of this on his own. Coulson knows, though. He also knows Mel’s codes are used to access the roof every morning at times he knows she’s down in the training rooms, and that Barton, if not well-behaved, is at least significantly less hostile than when he joined up. So Coulson keeps his mouth shut.
So basically I just think he was kind of like the original duckling, only instead of a duckling he was a small drowned kitten with fierce claws.
And Melinda recognizes that in him, I think. I mean, they probably had a running joke about hoping to never see each other again in the field, because Clint being there as a lookout probably meant that May was up against someone even her best couldn’t take down alone and she hates that; and everyone knew Fury didn’t send May into the field after someone unless everything was going to hell and Clint made a point of avoiding those situations at all costs.
They’re usually more than competent enough that they’re not sent after the other often, but there are a couple of missions where Clint saves May’s life and May pulls Clint out of the rubble. May’s not injured enough that she can’t fly the plane back, but she asks Clint to take over the yoke and it’s the first time Phil’s ever seen May willingly let anyone else touch her plane. And when Clint’s being carried out by the medical team he thrusts his bow into her arms and mutters something about hanging on to it for him, and she does.
There’s a certain irony to their pranks, though: they help Clint settle into his role at SHIELD right as Melinda is starting to feel the weight of hers, and their pranks grow more and more elaborate as she tries to convince herself that Melinda's still in there somewhere, that she's not just Agent May, not just the Cavalry. With every mission it grows harder.
After Bahrain happens she comes into her office to find Barton grinning mischievously, can of whipped cream in his hand, plan of attack on his tongue. But she doesn’t say a thing, and that grin falls.
She transfers to administration. Barton leaves cans of whipped cream on her desk every week, until one day he doesn’t.
Years later, sitting in her cockpit, smiling to herself as Fitz’s indignant voice comes through the comms, she thinks of Barton.
i like how when black widow takes a shower or wets her hair or whatever at falcon’s place her hair’s all wavy but she later has ruler straight hair, like does falcon own a straightener just to make his guests comfortable because that’s lovely
It’s the way she casually picks up her heels after beating the shit out of everyone in the room.
I can never not reblog this scene. It’s my favourite thing.
have you ever noticed that some tumblr users come in sets
like they never stop talking to/about the other person so you may as well follow them too
it’s like buy one, get one free
Everything is May’s. I’m pretty sure if May wanted Fury’s office, he would start moving out immediately.
making a graphic and i noticed something; Melinda’s very comfortable in episode two about getting in Jemma’s space. she sort of just…leans into the other woman and she doesn’t seem to feel uncomfortable unwinding with them. she’s come a long way in terms of her emotions, but she was never coldhearted. she always had a fondness for the people on this team.
polar bear?! so i was mostly right, just needed to move a prepositional phrase to the left (to the left)
I think the back had like a picture of icebergs? Or something. When I covered it with foil the polar bear was sticking out a bit so we just went with it.
Yes, book says they attached to whatever they’re modifying and I think it’s modifying the giving more than the it.
