dubcliq:

"So, how are your new partners?"  

"They are not my partners," May retorts. "They are children."
The chuckling that flows out of her earset makes her grip the steering wheel tighter, but her face remains most of its stoicism.
"You’re just cranky because you walked in on them two weeks ago."
"This morning," May amends, scowling at the memory.
"Again? Wow, those kids need to work on their stealth. I’m impressed and worried at the same time."
"I’m hanging up."
"Come on, Melinda. At least you’ve still got Phil on the team.”
"The team is a ticking time bomb.”
"Don’t be overdramatic. We were pretty young back then, too. Hold on, let me get Nat."
May wants to tell her that she has to land soon, but Hill is already busy pushing buttons on her screen.
Of course, Hill is right. They had been young and eager to prove themselves, thinking they could save the world. Back when Hill still spoke with a stutter, and when Natasha was still reckless, and when May still held on to her idealism and sense of humor to get through situations.
But there are things you cannot unsee, things you cannot undo, and things you cannot unlearn. They are different people now.
 A few seconds later a raspy voice enters the conversation, interrupting her thoughts.
"I’m a little busy here, ladies."
"Nat! The Angels have their first mission tomorrow."
"Uh, I don’t have the time for any pep talks at the moment… Actually, hold on."
The line goes silent, save for the sound of muffled scuffling in the background. May counts two minutes and thirty-nine seconds before -
"Alright, I’m here," Romanoff says, panting, "You’ll be great, May. You’ll kick ass like you always do. Like we always did."
"Still do," Hill interjects, and Romanoff hums in agreement. 
The two former Angels can’t see, but on her end, May finally cracks a smile.
AU where Hill, Romanoff, and May were the original members of the Angels Initiative, a S.H.I.E.L.D. operation that employed a team of three women who have the intelligence, street experience, and training to investigate a series of unsolved unusual cases. While the Initiative was successful, it was scrapped when the Council decided that the agents’ talents would be better utilized elsewhere. 
Romanoff was soon recruited by the Avengers Initiative, and Hill was selected as Director Fury’s right-hand. May served as a field agent until she requested to be reassigned to desk duty after the mission that earned her the nickname, “the Cavalry”.
Years later, when a string of unsolved cases appear to be linked, Fury appeals to the Council to revive the operation. When the Council approves, Fury reinstates Coulson, who had previously served as the liaison and advisor. Coulson manages to convince May to return, knowing that the veteran’s mentorship would help conserve the limited budget and time frame they were allotted.
Much to her displeasure, Coulson selects two very young agents to complete the team. Simmons, a genius biochemist from the research division, struggles with undercover work, improvisation, and making up excuses to explain her absences to her research partner and best friend, Fitz. Skye, a talented hacker with street smarts recruited from Rising Tide, has had no training and is too much of a wild card.
But the two rookies train hard. Simmons is practically a genius, and Skye can bypass any server and dismantle security systems with ease. They are resourceful, and they learn fast, no doubt quickly becoming assets to the team.
If only they stopped making eyes at each other all the time.

As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from her heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice. (x)

Oh fuck you guys fuck I have seen this reblogged a bunch of times but it only just now clicked for me another way that this is important.

Pierce says “Are you sure you’re ready for the world to see you, as you really are?”

In MCU canon, Natasha is whoever someone needs her to be. She’s a chameleon, and arguably, until we get a Black Widow movie, we aren’t going to see who she actually is because she’s always filtered through other points of view. We see the Natasha she presents to the world.

Pierce asks if she’s ready for the world to see her as she really is but that implies she knows who she really is, or that there’s even a specific self that can be revealed. At the end of the movie Natasha doesn’t say that she has been revealed, she says that all her covers are blown, that all her deeds are revealed. But neither of those are who she is.

The mistake Pierce makes is thinking that Natasha is made up of her past and her aliases. But Natasha’s strength is that she’s more than that, she transcends that. They’re a piece of her, but they’re not all she is, and she knows that. Even if she has to go out and figure out exactly what that means, she knows that she’s a person beyond that.

Fuck yeah Natasha Romanoff, is basically what I’m saying.

// Swan Queen: Old-fashioned goodbye

If you enjoy, please like/reblog. Do not repost, please.

 At first I thought this was a Hogwarts AU. ‘What’s with the heels Professor? No one’s gonna see them under your robes.’'I prefer to maintain a certain amount of decorum. I am the head of Slytherin;we can’t all fly around on a broomstick and expect to get paid for it.’Regina hid a grimace as she rubbed her ankle.,She’d never admit it but her feet were aching from traversing the uneven cobblestone with her signature black pumps.Emma scoffed. eyes falling to Regina’s foot as it slowly revolved in a gentle circle'You still peeved I helped pick out the Gryffindor seeker that trounced your Slytherins last term?'Regina glared at the blonde but Emma just smirked in reaction- swaying back and forth on the balls of her feet-fingers dug into the back pockets of those tight muggle jeans the woman insisted on wearing whenever she wasn’t teaching.Emma held out a hand and Regina only took it not to appear rude.Not because her feet were smarting or because she took any enjoyment in the paradoxically calloused but soft hands.Emma reached down hefted both trunks up ‘I could just magic-’ ‘Some things are worth the extra effort.’And with a wink the blonde stepped into the first train car. Regina felt her face flush. Infuriating woman (gigi)

it’s quite obvious really and of course professor mills travels with her louis vuitton suitcase and not some tatty old trunk she loves the summer when school is over she goes to paris for a month to shop and just enjoy the culture that she doesn’t get at hogwarts but this time something’s missing and it takes her a few days to figure out what it is or better who and when she does figure it out does figure out that she misses professor swan of all people she has a little moment of freaking out but a few days later there’s an owl with a little note just saying ‘how’s paris treating you? wanna meet at the eiffel tower?’ and it’s from emm… PROFESSOR Swan and her heart races and in a moment she would later claim was temporary insanity she sends the owl back with a one word reply 'yes' (absedarian)
