Sally can smell it, the moment they find the spot.
It’s not some Slayer Superpower thing, it’s merely that the tender cologne of bile, entrails and bits-that-used-to-be-people which a Grothlok Demon leaves behind is sort of hard to mistake.
Even if it’s wafting out of a boarded-up former abattoir, you’re going to notice.
Behind her, she hears Mary Watson draw in a breath, the blond nurse raising her not-at-all-suspiciously-well-maintained firearm and moving stealthily to Sally’s side. At the back of the alley, Molly Hooper is waiting, twitching with nervousness and hopping from foot to foot as Mycroft’s mysterious Girl Friday keeps the engine warm on Hudder’s car.
“This is it,” Watson says, and it’s not a question.
Sally nods anyway.
“Got our supplies?” she asks, and the blond nods again, gesturing to her inside pocket.
“Good,” Sally says. “On my count- One, two, THREE!”
And coiling every not-inconsiderable ounce of supernatural strength she possesses, Sally kicks at the door to the abattoir, knocking it open.
Without missing a beat, Watson reaches into her pocket and pulls out a small, knotted purple handkerchief which she tosses into the room as if it were a grenade.
“While Outlander is a brilliant period show, Claire represents so many qualities of a 20th-century modern-day woman, someone who is forging her own path, fighting for what she believes, and doing so with integrity,” Balfe said in a statement to press Monday. Elaborating exclusively to Vanity Fair, she added, “Right now it’s a very important time to stand up and voice our beliefs and reiterate that we are 50 percent of the population … that we have a voice and we need to use it. Even though Claire is a woman from the 40s, I think that she does have a resonance today. We need to stand up for our b e l i e f s and our r i g h t s , and I think she embodies that kind of spirit.”
“…getting to play Claire was an absolute dream. She is strong-willed and, not perfect, but a survivor and a fighter, and I think that is such a great place to go to in your work every day—to play someone who has such resilience. It can only make you feel better about everything in your life. I feel very grateful to be able to go to work every day and play her.”

TRANS SAPPHO WOULD MAKE SO MUCH SENSE OH MY GOD NO ONE KNOWS HOW SHE LEARNED TO READ BUT IF SHE'D BEEN TREATED AS MALE GROWING UP SHE WOULD'VE BEEN TAUGHT AND THEN COULD'VE TAUGHT OTHER GIRLS HOLY SHIT
Her son, Ptolemy, succeeded his father and reigned until A.D. 40, when he was killed by Caligula, the Roman Emperor, and the North African kingdom was divided into Roman provinces. Young Ptolemy seems to have had no children, so the ancient line of the Ptolemies that stretched back to the successors of Alexander the Great had died out. It was a dynasty that produced some of the most impressive women of the ancient world.

Hcs for how amajiki, bakugou, shinsou, and iida would be with an s/o (female) who's v strong 💪👀 female powerlifters ftw!
Hey Dear! Thank you so much for your ask, I kind of can relate
myself to it 😃 I
agree with you, female powerlifters and strong women ftw!
Btw, I saw your
request about Bakubae mountain climbing with his s/o. I literally know jackshit
about mountain climbing, so I’m doing some research 😁 I’m excited to
write it, salty boy is my aesthetics. Just in case it’ll take a little longer.
Boy is amazed and afraid at the same time
Since he has a lot of self-doubts he’s most likely
to be “Am I really the right person for you?”
Once tried arm wrestling with his s/o, she
almost broke his arm
She’s always ready to whoop some asses, in case
someone would make fun of his shyness
Is actually super amazed by her strength, since
he knows it requires a lot of effort and willpower to get this far
Loves being the small spoon, while cuddling in her
strong arms. He feels really safe there, she’s his save haven
Body worshipping is his thing and he loves to
pay attention to every part of her toned body
But I think if s/o had a kind of bodybuilder physic,
he would constantly feel intimidated
First he’s like ‘WTF’, isn’t she supposed to be
the one who needs to be protected? Even if he’s not Kirishima, he has pride in his
masculinity and it is low key sulking a little
Would never admit that he was actually impressed,
when she won arm wrestling against Kirishima
After giving it some serious thoughts he’s more
than proud of her. He’s the best and the strongest, so of course his s/o is the
Whenever she whoops someone’s ass, he’s
cheering from the sidelines “Babe, crush that damn dickhead”
Call her a beast, not even as a joke. It’s the one time he won’t
let her handle this kind of stuff
One time she insisted on an arm wrestling match
with him. She won and he’s still salty
While working out together he makes sure she’s handling
everything properly (equipment, etc.)
Mr. Superbia will take advice from her
Will rub her muscles after workout, just in case they’re sore, of course without
Is the most chill about it
“Oh, you can lift more than your own bodyweight?
That’s cool!”, he takes a glance at her “mind lifting me?”
Will occasionally work out with her
Asks her for help, like “Can you open the pickles for me?”
Nevertheless, he is super impressed when he sees her lifting
the really heavy stuff in the gym. Maybe
he should work out a little more?
He knows how to lift and is super strong himself, I mean just
look at his body
He is super amazed and super excited *insert Iida moves here*
Is impressed by her determination, after all it takes a lot
to come this far
Will ask a lot of questions about her training, to gain some advice
and give some advice as well
Working out with her and telling everyone how great she is
Will lecture her if she pushes herself too far
I apologize if this is not the greatest thing I’ve ever
written and you expected something more
I love your artwork so much! Who is/are your favorite Killer?
Hello, thank you very much. <3 My favourite killers are: 1. The Trapper. I don’t exactly know why.. maybe because I suck at playing killer and for me, the Trapper is one of the easiest killer to play? But I also like his design and perks. 2. The Nurse, because I really love her design and skill set. I think she is a cutie as well…. q7q protect. I want to play her so badly, but her blink is so hard to master. I really suck at this. *cry 3. The Huntress, because (also) her design is very nice to look at and the song and backstory of hers are just so awesome. Also strong women ftw~ (ship her with the nurse)
Edit: I forgot Michael. I of course love him. (Do I really need to say this? Everybody loves him!) I will always love him and he will always be protected by me. He’s precious. Srynotsry. Also he’s good for trolling survs.
What an election. Not only a win for OBAMA, but the legalization of gay marriage in up to 3 states, & huge, historic wins for women in the Senate & the House. Needless to say, I am proud to be an American today.
