otp: wonderful wonderful

Diana: Have you ever seen something that changes your life and you’re just like ‘huh’.

Steve: I saw you.

Diana: Honestly that’s very sweet but it really makes this awkward because I was going to show you a photo of a five scoop ice-cream.

i was talking to some friends about wonder woman today and one of them said how she didn’t like steve, bc wonder woman didn’t need a man, it was supposed to be an empowering film about women and not men 

and here’s the thing, we live in a patriarchal society, yet we’re told by women and feminists everywhere that a woman doesn’t need a man, and that’s is entirely true. women don’t need men! but loving a man doesn’t make a woman weak! it doesn’t make wonder woman any less empowering for loving steve! the problem is that female characters are so often lost in the ‘love interest’ trope that they aren’t empowering characters, and are hardly characters at all outside the relationship. but wonder woman, and many more films and tv shows today, aren’t like that anymore! so let’s stop aligning powerful women as not having a man, and non-powerful women as having a man!

a woman loving a man doesn’t make her any less powerful and independant, and we need to stop portraying and seeing it in that light

Something I love is Diana dramatically posing in front of Steve, announcing she’s ready for the Man’s World:

And he just looks up and goes, “NOICE”. Like, he doesn’t even question why would she wear something like that, he quickly picked these women are not’ playing around and whatever they wear works for them, so Diana’s new outfit must be lit, too.

Later, he asks her to get some new clothes when they get to the Man’s World but it’s not because he believes what she’s wearing is inapropiate, but because he knows the rest of the world will think and they need a low profile.

He never questions her choices of clothing or weaponery. The only time he did was before he saw how fierce the Amazons are, once he saw these women fight, he stood to fight with them, no questions asked, not a shitty comment after.

This is what makes him so unique in front of other male characters in superhero movies. Had someone else wrote and directed the movie, had he been the hero even, we would probably had to sit down and listen to him joke about her armor, question Diana or (yikes, yikes, yikes) see him checking her out in her “next to no clothes” armor.

But instead, he just nods and says “… cool”.

The power of a ship...
  • Me before WW: Chris Pine? Yeah he's cute. Charming, talented. Nice voice and pretty eyes. Among the Chrises, top three, depending on the beard situation.
  • Me after WW: CHRIS PINE??? IS A GIFT??? Those lips! When he grins! And his eyes! Paul Newman blue! When he brushes a lock of hair off his forehead???? My. New. Kink. I burn, I PINE, I perish!!!

do you ever think about the fact that steve trevor didn’t have much faith in humanity or saving people because of the combat he’d seen 

but he met diana and gave up his life to save people because diana restored that faith in him and believed in her ability to save the world. and died with a smile on his face because of her
