my pretty show

If you've not already done it, top 5 changes to Agent Carter?

1. More characters of color from day one, including a Jason Wilkes who gets to do more than be infused with dark matter and be charming but also an obvious loser in a super unnecessary love triangle. There was a post at some point about Nick Fury’s parents in fledgling SHIELD, let’s have that.

2. I liked Sousa very well in s1, but the second he started Love Interesting in s2 I pretty much instantly wanted to strangle him. I don’t know what I would do to fix this, but it desperately needs fixing.

3. Ana Jarvis’s story and pain are no longer about causing her husband pain and making him angry, what the fuck. They choose not to have children for other reasons or they were already infertile or SOMETHING. That whole plotline with her filled me with seething rage.

4. I mean, canonical Peggy/Angie, but barring that, either Angie as a regular in s2 coming out to LA to audition for movies and possibly fake dating someone or if they really could only get the actress for one scene, the musical was funny but I would have rather had her show up in reality, as a better season ender than unconvincing romance or The Murder of Agent Fuckboy.

5. I would rather not have gotten Peggy’s backstory if it was going to be so male-centric. The Peggy backstory flashbacks felt all wrong for me, and as with Sousa’s terrible Love Interesting I don’t know what I would replace it with but I would not have done it like that.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
