1. Kate still visits her
therapist, not on a tight basis but every few weeks just to cheek in. Both
after season one and season two, Kate took a timeout to cope better with the
2. Kate’s mother’s name was
Elizabeth, she was named after her and is very proud of her second name.
3. When she knows Tommy is
in hearing range, she randomly yells trust fall and lets herself fall
backwards. In 9/10 cases, Tommy catches her.
4. Most of the time, she’s

saw that with Eli, she saw that with Noh, but, whenever she looks at Teddy and
Billy loving each other and working their differences out, she hopes, that at

5. If she wasn’t Hawkeye,
Kate would teach self-defence classes for free, open to everyone.
6. She hates showing fear,

7. She’s got a small
bracelet she loves to wear, bought it after the end of Young Avengers season

talking about her feelings, even harder now than it was when she started in the
superhero business. Back then, talking with Billy was the easiest. They both
did not ask a lot of questions, managed to like just the right amount of
11. Sometimes however, she
needs just the opposite, noise, music, laughter to share. It’s what draws Kate
to confident men, drew her to Eli and Noh and still draws her to Tommy. Then
again, after dating and breaking up with team mates twice now, she’s not sure
if listening to her gut feeling would be a good idea. Thank goodness, looking
is still okay.
