breathing, lying still on two a.m. couch, empty
coffee cup on table, clutter and chaos unkempt; some
things matter more than tidying. scrunched up packets of
electrolyte powder paper my kitchen, my feet lost in a
sea of grateful fur. for now, we are all together, all five still
too young from their mother, starved too thin and shown
body on my
barely breathing chest, holding
still, holding steady, still
drawing ragged breath.
Jane Foster is AWESOME, and because of you now I low-key ship her with Darcy, and even though I didn't see an epic love story between her and Thor, I want her back! Why can't the MCU do better by the women? WHY?? I scream bitterly at the void! I want Pepper, Jane, Darcy, Helen, Betty and Frigga back! Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do. They deserve so much better than canon (and most of the fandom tbh) and you truly do them justice, so thx ❤️❤️❤️
Jane/Darcy is a Good Pairing. I definitely have a thing for “Darcy has a low key crush on Jane but is just going to leave it alone because she’s pretty sure Jane is a clueless heterosexual, but actually Jane is mostly a clueless bisexual”.
About Jane/Thor - while I do ship it (I think they’re adorable!) I do think that they were given pretty short shrift in canon. Part of the problem with Jane/Thor is the problem with most of the romances in the MCU: lack of development because it wasn’t given the screentime to develop. Out of all of the relationships in the MCU, I’d honestly say the only one that doesn’t suffer from that syndrome is Pepper/Tony. But even if you were going to end that romance, that doesn’t actually mean you need to pull Jane out of the franchise entirely. Because you know, NOVEL IDEA, women can have roles outside of “love interest” and people can break up and still be friends. So like. Even if they weren’t going to put in the work for Jane/Thor as a relationship…cutting her out of the franchise entirely is just bullshit.
BUT GOD YES TO ALL OF HIS, why do we need to keep tossing female characters out the window like they’re disposable/replaceable, they’re really not.
Thank you so much for telling me I do them justice! I am embarrassed by how much of my oeuvre is male-character centric, but I will always try to do the lady characters justice in anything I write.
Now I just have to see about working Betty into something, because justice for Betty Ross.
