nothing pisses me off more than the fact that 90% of women’s jeans have non-functioning pockets but baby clothes have proper pockets? what are babies carrying around that i’m not? baby wallets? fuck off
How else are designers going to get you to buy expensive hand bags?
I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.
She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)
And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.
This is a REALLY good character analysis of Natasha.
I am not here to tell you it’s going to be okay because you already
know that. Anyone can tell you that. I am not here to stitch up your
wounds. I am not a nurse or a doctor. I don’t know how to fix you
and I wouldn’t want to try. I am here to tell you that it’s time to heal.
It’s time to let go of the years you’ve lost to your misery. The years
you’ve spent falling in love with your sadness and the way
your bones look when there’s nothing but skin over them. Stop
planning out your funeral and stop writing your suicide note.
Save your energy for the love letters you will have to write one day.
Save your good stationary. Stop staring at your veins like they
will bleed answers. Some days, you will still feel the hollow sort of
heaviness like your bones are made of iron pipes.
All you need to hear is that it is okay to be sad for no reason, a
billion reasons, or for one small reason. Some days your lungs
will bleed and the fresh air is made of salt. Some days your skin will
be a wound and the world is nothing but acid. On these days,
you need to know that it is okay to cry. Some days you will feel
naked and vulnerable like when sadness left, he took your whole
closet with him. I am writing this because none of us can be saved.
None of us can be fixed, because there’s nothing that needs fixing.
You are you. Do not listen to the boy who tells you that you are
broken because he hasn’t bothered looking in a mirror.
Some days, loud noises will still feel like needles on your skin.
People will raise their voices and they will ask why you are scared
of them. Some days you will still cringe when men touch you.
There will be days when you will go the beach wishing
the sea were made of alcohol so that you can stop dreaming in
black and white. You will wonder why they’ve put you on so many
drugs and you will ask yourself why you can’t function on any less.
On days like this, there are only a couple things you must remember:
you’ve been through worse before. You are limitless. The
things you are capable of are infinite. There is someone waiting
to tell you how proud they are of you for making it this far.
I am writing this to tell you that it’s time to let go of your walls,
your ceiling, your floor and grab onto the sky.

I wish I could go back to every doctor that said “don’t worry, your skin will clear up when you’re an adult!” and break down their office door and scream “HAHA VERY FUNNY MOTHERFUCKER NOW YOU BETTER FIX THIS SHIT FOR FREE OR I’M GONNA SUE YOUR ASS FOR GIVING AN IMPRESSIONABLE YOUNG CHILD HORRIFYINGLY FALSE HOPE”
I’m intensely curious about people. I crave details. I want to know what someone is carrying in their bags, what is on people’s grocery lists, what books people are reading, whether they like going on intense hiking expeditions. I want to build a place where we can just sit down and tell stories….
