what if we get another may vs may fight scene? what if we get something more epic than may fucking flipping off a coffee table and slamming a girl with the same face as her into said fucking coffee table? writers i know you probably will but do not deprive us of this please.
Oh my god guys I know I’m late but I’ve been watching Supergirl and Blake Jenner was on there with Melissa Benoist and they had a thing for like ten minutes and all I was seeing was Marley and Ryder and I got more excited than is probably healthy.
“Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid.
When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and
sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged? You are iron. And you are strong.”
My name is Kara, and I don’t work for you anymore.
Everything that ever happened to this woman sucked. Period. She was a victim of kidnapping, brainwashing, abuse of every sort. The narrative didn’t know how to handle her, and that’s unfortunate to put it nicely, but what pushed me from lowkey loving her on principle and wanting to fix it into hardcore, ride or die determination to save and protect her at all costs is how by and large fandom treats her. Either, it seems, she’s an evil bitch (never mind that, you know, all of the bad things she did, she did under the influence of torture and brainwashing, or that even though it’s not as black and white as a certain man led her to believe she did have a right to be angry) or more commonly, she’s treated as a tool for the fanon redemption of said certain man (who, again, was largely responsible for her abuse). There are exceptions, of course, but not many. I am one of few, it seems, who have made it a mission to celebrate this underused beauty in all of her intelligent (comics-canonically she’s a historian etc. and I’ve latched onto that) and hurting-deserving-comfort and furious and kind glory.
DIVISION WARS (A SHIELD Academy AU) | Team Brains Edition You know how summer camps have color wars? Turn that up to 11, and you’ve got “Division Wars,” the annual inter-school competition at SHIELD Academy. It’s not surprise that Spec-Ops usually dominates the games, but for the past two years the specialist-in-training team of Antoine Triplett, Bobbi Morse, Grant Ward, and Kara Palamas have destroyed anyone and everyone in their path.
UNTIL NOW. Maybe. Cue the underdog team of Jemma Simmons, Leo Fitz, Skye, and Alphonso Mackenzie. This combo Sci-Ops/Communications team is sick and tired of the most beautiful and physically intimidating people on campus taking gold, and they’re going to do something about it or die trying.
Well, maybe not actually die. But there’s a lot of strenuous running involved, so who knows? It gets intense. Now if they could just get their act together and combine their brainpower for good, they might have an actual shot at this thing. They should also STOP SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY. Guys? Guys!!
I know what you’re doing Agent Morse, and it’s not going to work. Grant’s already told me everything. Everything, about his abusive family, about John Garrett, about having to kill Victoria Hand. But in the end, he overcame his family and the pain Garrett put him through.
I really can’t take anyone or the narrative seriously when they say that SHIELD never leaves a man behind.
Kara was a loyal SHIELD agent and was sold out to be tortured and brainwashed by HYDRA, permanently disfigured by SHIELD (I wouldn’t give them shit for this one since May was defending herself, if not for the fact that they then make jokes about it and treat it as “badass”), and then May treats her as if though it is her own fault and that she doesn’t feel sorry for her. Kara was literally knocked out on the floor in front of them at two different points, yet SHIELD “couldn’t” bring her back, but Coulson can afford to bring in all his remaining men and team up with a man he despises to rescue Skye during a coup, and to rescue Bobbi in the middle of a SHIELD-Inhuman war.
(cont.) Donnie Gill was a brainwashed teenager who was shot and “killed”, yet no one seems to even be bothered or show a hint of remorse or regret about this.
Not to mention this is the only reason Garrett even betrayed SHIELD. And let’s remember the team themselves defied order to save Fitz and Ward, who had been left behind to die.
Non-SHIELD AU - Kara lecturing Ward to grow a pair and ask Skye out, because she's sick of listening to both of them go on and on about the other.
“Grant, if you don’t ask Skye out, I’ll tell her you’re gay and planning on asking Lance Hunter out.” Kara snapped at her longtime friend. “You’ve been moping over her for the last six months, and I am sick of hearing you both yammer on about how much you like eachother!” She supposed technically she wasn’t supposed to share what Skye had said, but this was getting ridiculous.
Grant blinked, looking up at her from his drink. “Why Lance Hunter? If you’re going to make me gay, can’t I at least have better taste than that?”
Kara rolled her eyes, “His penchant for cowboy hats aside, Lance is good taste, Grant,” she smirked as she said that, remembering a few nights back. “And that’s what you grab onto? Really? I just let slip that Skye likes you too!”
“That’s not the problem, Kara, that’s never been the problem. I’m bad with people but I’m not completely oblivious. But I’m pretty sure my boss won’t like me dating his adopted daughter.”
“Fuck Coulson, just ask her out. She’s never going to do it because you’re impossible to read, and if I tell her you’re gay she might take a second look at Campbell.”
Grant frowned, his brow furrowing. Kara chuckled. Got it.
