i don't think they're spoilers but whatever

It makes me very uncomfortable to see people shipping Pike and Scanlan so hard especially after Scanlan’s return. Pike has always been uncomfortable with his flirtations even when she rolls with it and tries to be funny. I mean, this is a woman who fought in the nude no sweat, talks about going to brothels casually; she isn’t one to be uncomfortable, and Scanlan made her so. His apologizing for objectifying and harassing her was a pivotal moment in their friendship, and to see people reducing the seriousness of Pike’s feelings of betrayal after his leaving with “omg they just need to kiss and make up!!!” disturbs me, as a woman, in ways I could probably articulate but am too tired to at the moment.
It also does Scanlan a disservice in his character growth as he moves beyond his unhealthy infatuation with Pike. Yeah, he might always going to flirt with her because that’s who he is, but it won’t be exclusive and it will be much lighter. I hope both Ashley and Pike don’t ever feel pressured into dating Scanlan for whatever reasons. I think they could be great friends, but that frankly creepy chapter of the gnomes’ lives is hopefully behind them.

If you’d just done what I said without asking questions,
I would have told you the truth.
But I never thought you’d tell me that!

no but I can’t stop thinking about this.

the last we see of natasha in civil war is tony telling her ‘they’ll be coming for you’. 

kay well we all know she has nothing to worry about, she can take care of herself. easy.

but clint barton. he’s stuck in prison. i’m supposed to believe it’s JUST steve breaking him + everyone else out? 

nope. no i’m not behind that idea. 

nat is on the run. so are bobbi morse and lance hunter. this is natasha romanoff we’re talking about - she can find anyone she wants

i firmly believe that nat grabs bobbi and hunter. clint is nat’s person but wanda and sam - and, begrudgingly, scott - are her people. she won’t sit around idly waiting for captain america to twirl his way through. 

she will get to that prison, with bobbi and hunter. they’re cunning, they’re devious, they’re wild and fierce and feral and they will bust their people out.

cap is great and all. 

but when it comes to clint barton, there is no force in any universe that has me believing natasha romanoff will go into hiding  - or wherever the hell she went / whatever the hell she’s doing - while steve spangled pants rogers saves her own partner. 

So Fire Emblem If (I’m still calling it that) has been out in Japan for a while now, but won’t get the official English release until mid February, so I’ve been trying to avoid spoiling myself. However, through osmosis and because I am a bad, bad man, I think I get the gist of the three routes…?

Nohr/Conquest
