“I love this team and would do anything to help it be successful,” she said. “I did not want to sit and watch our match versus Houston if I could physically be there. We want to win the Championship, and I wanted to be there if I could.”
so a few of you have been asking me if i have abandoned this one, and i haven’t i promise. i just suck at updating, especially with the million and one works in progress i currently have. saying that, this one is nearly finished now, since it was only supposed to be a drabble, so i hope you all enjoy this one.
and it’s nearly 4.5k and it totally got out of hand, woops, but i hope you all enjoy it, nonetheless!
Her and Killian are barely there for a few moments, before she’s in Ruby and Mary Margaret’s arms, and the two girls are pulling her off to the side. She watches from the corner of her eyes, as she sees Killian’s eyes lingering on her for a few moments, as he presses his lips firmly together before he’s being whisked away by Victor and David. She smiles sadly in response.
Mary Margaret is suddenly pulling on her arm, and she looks up to see the two of them peering down at her, in curiosity.
“Well,” Ruby drawls out. “At least you didn’t kill each other. That’s a plus, right?”
“Yeah,” she hears Mary Margaret laugh quietly as she runs a hand through her dark locks. “I half expected you to come dragging his body along the way.”
She tries to laugh, she really does, despite how she feels, and honestly, even she’s surprised when a sob comes from her throat, with tears streaming down her face, that she really can’t seem to control. Really, she tries to stop them, but once she’s started crying, it’s hard to, and then she’s bundled up in her two best friend’s arms, before she can even breathe.
Honestly, she’s just glad that the boys had retreated to showing Killian where they’d put the tents up, because the last thing she needs to do is explain.
Mary Margaret’s concerned, dark eyes are the first thing she sees, through the blur of the tears, as she hears the two of them murmuring quietly to one another.
“Emma,” Ruby says, her voice shocked. “What’s wrong?”
She just sniffles pathetically, as she shuffles back against the car door at her back, with the two girls following her.
“Tell us,” Mary Margaret is saying, her voice purposefully soft, as she pleads. “We can help.”
She laughs at that, a slightly morbid thing that lacks humor.
“I doubt that,” Emma murmurs, as her hands come up to her face, her fingers wiping her tears away.
This is one of the oddest top 10 lists I’ve ever seen from Marvel. I went in and thought “Oh, I hope they mention Diamondback.” And thankfully they did. Not to flatteringly, but she was mentioned.
Then they listed Free Spirit. That caught me completely off-guard. They gloss over her origin and not mention female supremacist Superia (yes, Marvel actually has a supervillain that is a literal Feminazi) and list her before either Jack Flagg, D-Man, or SHARON CARTER.
It’s not even in Chronological order to justify this. Cathy Webster/Free Spirit had like 17 appearances before she re-appered in the latest Cap run. SEVENTEEN! Jack Flagg managed better thanks to Thunderbolts and Guardians of the Galaxy (which is also glossed over in this countdown). Her I never expected to see again.
And here she is. Dead center in this top 10 list. Wow.
