Do you ever get so angry you can’t breathe?

what if the avengers spend the entire movie fighting ultron and they never get the upper hand and things are lookin’ pretty dire for them and then at the very last second pepper potts shows up and blows him up and then turns around and goes “that was okay, right? that was the bad robot? okay just checking”

"'I think we could, it’s a matter of when. It’s a matter of what are those dates, it’s a matter of juggling multiple, successful franchises. Is there a downside to managing multiple, successful franchises? I believe we’re figuring out that there is, which is having the time to do them all. So, at what point do we hold back a franchise or have three or four years between parts of a franchise in order to introduce new ones? Or do you introduce new ones within the body of the films? We’re looking at all those things right now.'"

Kevin Feige’s response when asked if Marvel is open to a Black Panther movie or a movie with a female lead.

Excuses. “Matter of when”, “matter of juggling franchises”. But it’s so easy to throw up Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy? One movie that nobody wanted and another movie that appears to have no connection at all to the current MCU? But as long as there are white male leads, you can make all the plans you want. Give me a break.

When will it ever be the precise, correct time for a blockbuster superhero movie with a black lead? Or a female lead? Or god forbid a woman of color? When?

Now. The answer is now. The time is now. Get the fuck off your high horse, Kevin Feige, and start acknowledging us as people.

twentyghosts said: Pepper Potts, for the meme!


Pepper exists outside of Tony. Her life has been consumed with Stark Industries, because she is totally the kind of person who throws herself into her work, but that’s not the same as being consumed with Tony. Pepper has friends who Tony has never met. Pepper loves Tony, but if they broke up, she wouldn’t be broken. She was whole to start and she’s still whole now.

Pepper is not some kind of flawless moral compass. Pepper is ambitious. Pepper, far more than Tony, is a realist. Pepper is willing to sacrifice some of her ideals for the greater purpose.

Pepper still has Extremis. It’s stabilized, but she has it. The difference between her and Tony, though, is that she won’t let anyone know. He can go out and publicly announce “I am Iron Man.” She understands that there are some superheroes who need to go out there and be public, but there are also some that work better quietly, who need their identities to be kept under wraps for very good reasons, like stockholders and board members who are just looking for a reason to usurp her but also like supervillains who’d just love to see what happened. That doesn’t mean she can’t save people, it just means she does it on her own terms. (She talks about that with Phil a lot.)

sidewaystime said: I was going to ask about Dawn Summers or aliens from Roswell or some crazy kids from the Creek. But, if you choose, you can go with Natasha instead. (Or jewish Coulson? Because i like that characterization.)

I’m gonna go with Dawn Summers, because probably someone else will ask me about Natasha and I have been having a lot of Dawnie feelings lately.

  1. It is so so so necessary to acknowledge that BtVS does not have an omniscient narrator. Whether or not she’s even in the scene, everything is filtered through Buffy. So it’s not necessarily true that Buffy and Willow and Xander were incredibly mature 16-year-olds, or that Dawn is incredibly immature. Dawn is filling the role of bratty little sister for Buffy and that’s how she’s framed for the audience. Any story that’s genuinely about Dawn needs to reframe the narrative to see her as the central character and Buffy as the annoying older sister and the rest of the cast as her annoying older sister’s friends.
  2. The fact that Dawn was created for a purpose doesn’t mean that she isn’t real. Her memories, hopes, dreams, etc. are not any less valid just because she was less “born” and more “crafted by monks hoping to protect a mystical energy force.” I think it’s easy to invalidate that because, particularly during the more turbulent parts of Dawn’s life, we as audience saw the world as it was without her. But once she was created, she was retroactively inserted. She was just as much a part as everyone else.
  3. It’s honestly amazing to me how many people can hate on Dawn for being such a teenage girl when Buffy herself was created to be, you know, the prototypical teenage girl, if she was forced into a scenario no one should be subjected to. There’s a lot of not-very-subtle teenage girl hate in the Dawn hate, when honestly, if you take away the mystical key aspect, Dawn is what Buffy deserved to be. Dawn is Buffy without a sacred duty to fight monsters, and to dismiss her for not being important because of that says a lot more about the viewer than about the character.
