wonder who that special woman is... x)

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: chris carter has even said that the x-files was really scully's story, not mulder's. the pilot episode opens with scully, a young fbi agent, being assigned to the x-files in order to debunk the work of fox mulder — we are to assume because of her background in "hard science", and when we first meet her she's a 29-year-old phd/md with a specialization in forensics, who has been through the fbi academy, and considering how much she'd achieved before the age of 30, you have to kind of wonder: why didn't she get a better offer than debunking the x-files? why did the fbi pick her to work with mulder when the fbi could have really gotten their money's worth by using her in a more serious capacity? was it because she was a woman? did they think mulder would be more likely to cave if he was partnered with a woman? did they think that she was too smart for her own good — or not smart enough? what did the fbi see — or fail to see — in scully that landed her in fox mulder's basement office? if the fbi had really appreciated, or understood, just how brilliant and capable scully was, why would they have ever knowingly partnered her with mulder? it seems like they completely underestimated her, because she went on to become not just mulder's greatest ally, but an enormous threat to those the fbi thought she would blindly protect. scully's story began the way many a woman's has: not being taken seriously by powerful men, while at the same time being expected to serve the goals and interests of those men. scully's story, ultimately, is not about a young fbi agent who stumbles into a government conspiracy-laden basement and falls in love with her spaceship-chasing partner. it's about a woman who spent her entire life trying to prove herself, and when she finally did, she was so powerful that it didn't protect her — it endangered her. scully's story is the story of all women who have to fight to prove that they are strong, and when they do, people just wait for them to be broken by their own strength. the threats against scully were often overt and specific, but not always. in so many ways the more subtle and pernicious attacks on scully's sense of self, of her perception of truth, the shaking of her foundation of justice, were the real threats all along. the cat-and-mouse game between mulder & scully and the government was always this: they wanted to make sure mulder stopped asking questions and ensure that scully was always questioning. what they really wanted her to do, constantly, was question her own perceptions and undermine her own beliefs. from the beginning of the x-files to the most recent iteration, the only thing that ever really stood between scully and the truth was herself.

anonymous asked:

(gifs please) how would the members react if they saw their girlfriend dressed up more femininely (curled hair, cute dress, heels) instead of something more casual like jeans and a t shirt?

It was too hot, but the sky had some clouds… But hey, he needed to sit for a bit. Being a photographer wasn’t that easy specially if he was working to a very specific magazine about vacations.
Steve can be a handsome guy, but he is used to be alone. He and his camera. He is sitting for a while when he notices that he isn’t alone in the mountain. He hears a woman laughing and he turns his head. He spots a woman and a little girl… And he wonders who is on that place with a kid…

Hope to Die (I)

Pairing: Bucky x Reader
Words: 2,420
Warnings: Small mentions of suicide and violence
Request: (From Anon) I love the story so much you should do ‘Cross my Heart’ from Bucky’s POV
A/N: If you haven’t already, I do recommend reading Cross My Heart before this one because this is really just tying up on the loose ends I left in the original lol. Oh and be warned - the formatting here is far different from what I used in CMH, but hopefully it’s easy enough to follow. Also, there will be more parts to this. Two more, at best.

Your name: submit What is this?

1936

“The only rat here is you, James Barnes.”

As soon as the words left your lips, Bucky’s eyes followed your figure as you quickly made to exit the diner. He watched as your curled hair bouncing around your shoulders, your anger exceptionally prominent in the way you moved. He sat back in the booth seat, jaw setting and brows furrowing, very much regretting every word that spilled from his damn mouth in that spur of jealousy.

It took but a second for Steve to echo Bucky’s thoughts: “What the hell did you do?”

December 24th, 1949

One year later

Betty slipped out of the bed, wrapped an old chenille blanket around her shoulders and tip-toed to the window. The south of France was too warm for proper snow, but this morning, a thin layer of frost covered every blade of grass, olive tree branch and terracotta rooftop. Crystalized dew, agleam with the sun and ephemeral because of it.

“I’m dreaming of a white Christmas,” she sang softly.

The mattress groaned as Jean-François rose to join her at the window. He wrapped his arms around her and rested his chin atop her head. The decision to go to Boutillon for the holidays had been a no-brainer. After an eventful year, retiring to the country for some peace and quiet was what they needed: forest all around, a well-stocked wine cellar and loads of books. To be honest, it was a drafty old place, but they had firewood and warm embraces aplenty.
