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.

eveningsandcoffeespoons asked: "ARGH TUMBLR. I was just running with your May+Barton thing--when he joins, she's a senior agent so occasionally Garrett will find his coffee full of salt instead of sugar or Hand's sheets will disappear, but she's calmed down mostly. And then Barton joins up, and after he's been around a bit the big pranks start up again--Coulson's whole office is in the hallway, or the mess orders 600 gallons of ice cream, or all the copy machines in the whole triskellion are programmed to staple on the right."


(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.


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

regionsofkindness asked: "Oh no! Theoretically Skye is also a bus duckling but I haven't gotten to squee over that because last ep was all angst between them :(. Have some MaySkye to make up for it: that May/Skye + Thor fangirling moment is GOLD because it's one of those times where you can tell who the /real/ authoritative figure is on the team - it's not Coulson, it's May. That look Skye gave Coulson is totally "May said it's true so it must be true!" The ducklings let Phil think it's his team but it's totally May's."


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.
