Ok people let’s get this straight
Melinda May is called ”The Cavalry" and NOT "The Calvary”
I mean yeah we all know May is badass but i’m pretty sure she’s not where Jesus Christ was crucified thank you very much
so my darling friend Natalie ( fitzsimmonsinthetardis ) is having a rough evening. So I figured I’d make up a little reminder of how great she is - featuring two of her favourite ladies!
#this is just such a fucking sassy remark like#it sounds like something my mother would say to my spoiled sister#i never really stopped to think about it before but damn steve#it’s almost childish you are being a chiLD (via marvelobsessions)
That’s why I love it so much though. Because it’s so, so easy to forget this — SHIELD constantly forgets this — but Steve *is* a child. He was twenty-six years old and terrified when he died. And to him, that was maybe ten days ago. Just — ten days ago, he died. Eleven days ago, he watched his best friend and protector fall to his death in a clusterfuck he will always believe was his fault. Ten days ago, he died while the listening to Peggy cry on the other end of a static-filled radio. Ten days ago, he was still in 1945. He was supposed to leave it; it wasn’t supposed to leave him. And he woke up, and everyone he loved was gone, and now he’s confronted with an agency that’s lying to him about everything and he’s just found in their storage facility the exact weapon that killed the person he loved most and he’s arguing with a man who looks far too much like someone he called a friend, who he knows now is dead, who died violently in a car crash, and he doesn’t know Tony well enough to know this is how he deals with fear, so to him, this is just…someone with money, with all the privilege and padding he and Bucky never had, who would never have to go to war if he didn’t want to, making light of a situation way too close to Steve’s chest.
Steve was being prickly as hell through most of this movie, but he was bleeding out and in pain and had no one to bleed on. The comment he makes to Tony, about knowing guys with none of that worth ten of him? Imagine all of the people he was thinking about then. All of the people he knew he’d never see again; who he wished he wasn’t standing there to never see again. Trying to organize a time bomb and remembering the Commandos. Trying to co-lead with a man he doesn’t yet understand, and remembering Bucky. Trying so hard not to keep seeing him fall. Being expected to be above all of those messy human emotions, because he’s Captain America, and while he was asleep that name became a legend so much bigger than any real, living person could be.
He’s only twenty-six.
I just made myself sad.
Thank you because sometimes I think it isn’t only SHEILD that forgets this poor Steve has just lost everything absolutely everything Steve waking up is a lot like Thor being banished everything is gone there’s nothing left for him to hang on to and he’s still so young I think SHEILD forgets that too because he’s a legend and do we ever think of legends as young?

Leo Fitz to Jemma Simmons in response to her calling him her “best friend in the world.”
Can we talk about this line for a minute? Because the phrasing of this line is so important.
He doesn’t say, “You’re more than that to me.”
He just says, “You’re more than that.”
"You’re more than that," isn’t only a confession of love. It isn’t just him saying, "I see you as more than just my best friend.”
With this one line, Fitz is telling Jemma that in the grand scheme of things she matters more than he does. This line is Fitz saying, “You’re a beautiful woman, and a genius, and a hero. And you will do great things without me. Because you’re Jemma Simmons - independent and important - and I’m just your best friend. That’s all anyone sees me as, and it is a great thing to be, but you are so much more - to so many people - than just my best friend.”
This is him telling her that the world doesn’t need him the way it needs her.
This is Leo Fitz saying that he genuinely believes that the greatest thing he could ever do with his life, is sacrifice it to save hers.
This line doesn’t translate to “I love you.” This line translates to “Not only do I love you, but I also believe that you are incredibly more important and vital to the world than I could ever hope to be.” And I think that says a lot about how much Jemma Simmons means to Leo Fitz.
can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal
Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode?
It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.
Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.
Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.
Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.
Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.
The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.
The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.
