Wildlife Wednesday: It’s Salamander Season!

Spring is almost here, and that means amphibians like these spotted salamanders are coming out to migrate to their vernal pools! During breeding season, a female spotted salamander can lay 200 eggs a year. The vast majority don’t survive to leave the pond as adults. But those that do manage to climb out can live 20 years in the wild. Besides the cuteness factor, there’s at least one more reason to love salamanders: They also eat mosquitoes.

I’ll expect two thousand words in my inbox before Santa shows up.

You got it, Boss.

Masterpost: Matt a.k.a captain of the “Protect Karen at all costs squad”

You’ve probably noticed that Matt has been very protective of Karen since season 1, haven’t you? Well, let’s take a look, because it’s just so cute. Beware, this is going to be a looong post filled with pics!

  • In season 1:

For the record, in 1x01 (around 28′), he offered her to come to his place and he told her: “I will keep you safe, Karen.” He also literally saved her as the Man in the Mask around 40′.

In 1x08, Matts interrupts Karen and Foggy as they were discussing their plan and he tells Karen:  There are things out there. You can’t be doing things like this, you’re gonna get hurt.” 

In 1x13, he told her: “I told you I would keep you safe, Karen. When he came after you over Union Allied. That hasn’t changed.” Later on (around 30′), he’ll tell her and Foggy:  “See, this, in this office, this is what’s important. Knowing that the people I care about are safe and having some sense of closure for the ones we’ve lost.” 

It’s interesting to note that this first season was framed by these same words. Karen proved she was more than able to take care of herself, but Matt swore to protect her and that’s what he’s been doing, whether as Matt or Daredevil. He never forgot what he told her when they first met. He never forgot that night.

  • In season 2:

In 2x04, when Matt realizes Karen left with the Frank Castle files while he and Foggy were talking, he gets worried and wants to come after her more than anything else, but Foggy reminds him they have work to do:

When he realizes something is wrong..

When he realizes Karen’s gone.

He sighs, and all of a sudden, says: “I have to find her” and rushes to the door.

And that’s when Foggy stops him and you can see how frustrated and worried he is.

You are stuck with me.

Wouldn’t have it any other way.

Why do you care so much about Frank Castle? 

Maybe once upon a time this was about whether or not he was innocent or some kind of psycho murderer, but that ship sailed a long time ago. Along with your career at Nelson and Murdoch. So why do you still care?

Because he is not a psycho murderer! …He wasn’t a psycho murderer.

They were more than just part of it, it was a sting.

How do you know that?

I’ve gotten really good at digging up shit that people like you wanna keep buried.

So what am I supposed to fill Sunday’s paper with?

Crossword puzzles.


DAREDEVIL | S2 | Karen Page moments 18/50

Why do you always do this? Why do you put Matt in the driver’s seat when you can do this yourself?

Matt and I are partners for a reason. 

There’s some things that I’m better at, and there’s things that he’s better at.

Maybe, it’s not your first rodeo.

Maybe, it isn’t. I almost took the shot.

Kastle. #s 22 & 32 because I apparently hate myself

frank/karen + 22. “I’ve seen the way you look at me when you think I don’t notice.” & 32. “I think I’m in love with you and I’m terrified.” & 3. “Please don’t leave” (combining a request from a few nights ago into this)

In the past six months that had passed since the first time Karen met Frank Castle, she’d seen him every few weeks. Mostly out of the corner of her eye while she walked home from work or from the grocery store. Ever since he saved her life by crashing into her car, she’d been electing to walk home. Mostly because she couldn’t afford a new car.

Karen never called Frank out on being just a little creepy by following her around but if she had to be honest, mostly with herself, she kind of liked knowing The Punisher was never far away. Even if one of the last things that she said to him was that he was dead to her. Frank must have known she didn’t mean it. Why else would he keep coming back?

You’re right, this city really needs heroes. 

But you’re not one of them.
