Srsly. We do all our best work when we’re together. We’re unstoppable. We’re like Captain Planet. We’d take the Hunger Games and eat them and not be hungry. We’re awesome. Like a donkey riding a unicorn who is Chuck Norris but really Bill Nye. THAT awesome.
Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers? Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and figured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the machine?
Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?
Anyone else remember that? I sure do.
#and remember how they didn’t sexualize her #remember how she was independent and didn’t need a male crutch #remember how when loki implied that she needed a man she completely tore him down #remember how natasha romanov doesn’t take shit from nobody #especially not a man
Remember how all of the men on her team just automatically accepted her as equal and didn’t question it because 1) she’s awesome and 2) they are all surrounded by amazing capable women in their own lives,
Bruce has Betty, the only person who was brave enough to face the Hulk before he met the team.
Steve with Peggy who kicked arse and took names and wouldn’t put up with Howard’s jokes or Steve being unreasonably jelous.
Thor who grew up with and fought along side Sif and stuck by her even when everyone else laughed because she was such a good warrior and he wanted everyone to know it and he trusts her so much and on top of that there’s Jane and Darcy who are just so certain of themselves and their own power that they take on Agent Coulson and the God of Thunder respectively
Tony with Pepper, the only person he can trust in the whole world, who runs his life and has for 10 years. The one person he literally can’t function without the only one he could entrust his entire company to when he thought he was dying because she does all that anyway! The one he trusts with the keycode to his workshop, his safe space where he can just be himself.
And Hawkeye who has her and they are so close that they don’t even need to talk and he knew the moment he saw her that she was too good to simply kill, that she was too great an asset to lose and that he was probably scared that he’d miss and she’d fuck his shit up.
“Old Economy Steve”
mad as hell
My dad once told me that sometimes when he’d lose a job he’d have another one before he went home and I just…
WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT OF THAT STORY. THAT IS NOT RELEVANT TO MY JOB HUNT. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A JOB FOR OVER A YEAR, DON’T TELL ME ABOUT HOW JOB HUNTING USED TO BE.
Ever since I turned about 15 my dad would continuously bring up how he got his first job at 15 and bought his first motorcycle at 16 and no I’m sorry dad but that isn’t how things work right now
Anna May Wong, the first Chinese-American movie star. She began acting in 1922, and within two years she was an internationally known actress and fashion icon.

During the War, she focused on helping the Chinese during the Second Sino-Japanese War. In the 1950s, she returned to the public eye when she became the first Asian-American tv lead.

Today, Amazon announced the imminent launch of its newest endeavor, Kindle Worlds, a publishing platform for fanfiction. When I read the announcement, I was horrified, then angry, then sad. I want to take a moment to explain why this is such a tragedy.
it’d be cool to speak like 20 different languages & keep it a secret from everyone & then during a time of crisis, u could speak some fluent russian to some russian guy holding a gun to your head & all your friends will be like daaamn
