aphrodite is so good and kind and loving. im constantly amazed and yet i shouldnt be?? She is the embodiment of love and war. Her hate and cruelty is terrifying, and she is strong and bears weapons that we cant begin to fathom. And yet her love is so pure and soft and sweet.
She has shown me her miracles time and time again, and here she is yet again showering me in her gifts and love. In return, i love in her name. I give my love freely. I am beautiful in her image, if only so people look upon me and remember the beauty of aphrodite.
Has anyone else stared at this picture 100+ times because they’ve noticed that Kate and Charlotte both have the same scrunched up look?! Like they both press their lips the same way and idk but the thought that Charlotte is copying her mum as she grows up just gives me all the feels ♡♡
ok but real widowsombra hours…. widow definitely never imagined her having feelings for someone in the way that she has feelings for sombra and I think that her realizing those feelings ultimately stems from the way sombra treats her… in all of our shorts all we see is widow following orders (“hold the perimeter” ,“get back to the ship”, killing mondatta, ect.) and one thing sombra is super good at is pushing ppls buttons and getting reactions out of them …. something she def does is present widow w autonomy and actually asks her what SHE wants. widow says we need to complete the mission, sombra says, but do you want to? aren’t you tired? she’s always asking widow questions like what she wants to eat, how she’s feeling and why, why she painted her nails that color, why she got a tattoo and a lot of questions are rhetorical and just to tease at first but sombra knows what she’s doing and she knows what it does to widow. making her think about what she wants is something no one’s ever done and eventually it comes to the point where widow realizes something she DOES want.
sombra says, what do you want? and widow replies, you. it’s not the start of a relationship coz they’re both such complicated human beings with contradictory goals and personalities but it’s the start of //something//. sombras always known what she wants, too, and finding that in widow tells her a lot. about widowmaker and about amelie lacroix.
ugh that scene in the handmaid’s tale where the wives are standing around the table when janine is giving birth, and one of the wives says to offred “breached, dear, have you heard that word?”, in that tone and like, i think i could deal with being a handmaid but i don’t know if i could deal with someone treating me like that
