care to share more sanvers headcanons? i love. reading them makes me so happy.
you ask for more, you shall receive:
alex gets hurt after an alien attack, maggie yells at her for being so reckless and alex gets pissed at maggie for yelling; in conclusion: they end up kissing each other
morning cuddles after sleeping together for the first time
maggie gets turned on after she sees alex beating up and alien twice her size
dressing up to halloween in their harry potter houses and taking
disgustingly cute picutes of each other
maggie is introducing alex to all the classic gay films she probably never watched: d.e.b.s, imagine me and you, carol and ghostbusters (2016)
after a long day fighting aliens, they both fall asleep, wrapped in each others arms, passed out on a DEO couch and kara can’t resist and takes at least 10 pictures of them
whenever alex has to get up pretty early, maggie visits her at the DEO with alexs favourite coffee order. a lot of kissing is happening and j’onn, kara and winn can’t stop smiling about how happy alex looks
maggie calls alex pet names and alex tries to hide how much she loves being called ‘babe’ or ‘honey’, she fails
someone at the DEO (someone no one ever liked) makes an inappropriate comment about alex and maggie looses it and beats the guy up, “my knight in shining armour” alex jokes after she has to bandaid maggie and kisses her soflty on her cheek
kara shows maggie baby photos of alex and some photos from when they were teenagers and alex head turns into a tomato red and almost faints
like there is no way this narrative is not setting peggy and angie up and if people are gonna ignore this in favor of the hetero then honestly there's nothing to say because the first season was literally a romance arc
b a si c ally oh god
parallel to peggy moving on from steve they (writers) have set up angie/peggy’s romantic arc on a very reasonable speed and there is just no way they’re just throwing this away or that they did any of this unintentionally.
the writers have very obviously put a lot of thought into this, maybe not the primary thought being “peggy needs to have a relationship besides steve” but they thought /something/. especially with the entire episode 3.
they know, the writers the producers hayley lyndsy, everyone knows how romantic tropes are put in scene and they were so obviously heading for that (not only the frame and general characteristics of their relationship but also the lightning of the scene was warm and fuzzy feeling like, the characters were in focus, t h e m u s i c, everything. literally everything about this goddamn scene at the end; ) and being ignorant or oblivious about this just won’t change the show’s idea about it (@ heteronormativity)
not only ep. 3 but literally every scene between peggy/angie was filled with romantic tropes and also such cliches sometimes (secretive and mysterious person A, bubbly and quirky literally girl next door person B;)
if the writers intention was to put angie as “just a friend” then fine, i’ll be happy as long as they’ll continue their positive and healthy relationship but why would they frame the scenes like that if they weren’t going somewhere with this
not for queerbaiting, that’s for sure. they couldn’t have known beforehand that cartinelli had such a huge following. if they’d known that cartinelli would be so popular among fans they wouldn’t only have implied it but also promote it as much as aos promotes FitzSimmons or as much as chloe promotes skimmons.
No, you don't tell people where to put their hetenormativity. You don't know them. They could be very gay and still ship Peggy with Jarvis, Sousa or even arsehole Thompson. It's a matter of personal feelings and sensations. There is nothing canon in this season of Agent Carter. Only the love of Peggy for Steve.
mypost had nothing to do with shipping preferences, at all (or at least notintentionally). I was neither talking down peggy/whoever nor shippers of
peggy/whoever nor degrading anything of that sort.
although true, i might have worded it wrong and i 100% agree with the
part where you said that your sexuality has nothing to do with what you ship
but that doesn’t change the point i was trying to make.
intention was to kind of make fun of the way the fandom and viewers selectively
ignore the very obvious parallels between peggy’s feelings for steve and howard’s feelings for steve (therefore my assumption that howard is represented as bi, bisexual or biromantic, … bi)
and furthermore write off cartinelli (peggy/angie) as queerbaiting because the
show hasn’t screamed the obvious things from the rooftops, yet. the thing is:
agent carter is hands down ignoring heteronormativity and viewers still think
with howard’s sexuality people are completely ignoring his feelings for steve
that he pointed out often enough and usually in direct parallel to peggy’s
feelings for steve. but yet, peggy’s emotions are never questioned whether
their romantic or not. we know that peggy was in love with and still loves steve.
and guess who else knows that? everyone including howard and he compares his own feelings to
how you said that, “there is nothing canon in this season of agent carter. only
the love of peggy for steve” because you’re literally proving the point I’m
trying to make already.
with heteronormativity there’s also bi-erasure that seems to be a big factor
here. we’re confronted with howard’s sex life and how he loves the company of
women (cough) so “he can’t be in love with steve, he had sex with women” (eye rolls so hard my eyes are stuck in head)
thing why people tend to ignore howard’s feelings for steve is probably also
because he seems rather comfortable with discussing those feelings. we’re used to see closeted
queer characters suffer and feeling miserable about their sexuality and
feelings that it never even crosses our minds that peggy might be very aware of
the fact that howard stark is bi, that he’s out to her or that she just knew.
such a mindset of what queer characters have to look like, be like, behave
like, what their usual storyline arc is (question of sexuality – feeling miserable
about sexuality – eventually coming out – everyone accepts it or more miserable
about sexuality) that we’re completely overlooking proper representation when
it’s right there.
She knows it’s stupid, and it’s hormones, and is Carmilla really worth all the trouble? (“Yes”, she thinks, then quickly corrects herself, “Of course, yes”.) Above all, though, Laura knows it’s useless fighting it. She’d had a smile glued to her face for practically the entire day now – (her roommate may argue it’s been longer than that) and every time her thoughts drift to the other girl she can’t help but hold a pillow to her chest and try to hide the embarrassing amount of giddy that she emits for a varying amount of minutes afterwards. Laura thinks, in this condition, she may never be able to frown again.
