#i’ve never given it much thought before but this gifset really strikes home at how so very young steve and natasha are compared to the rest of the avengers #they’re still kids really and they’ve already gone to wars and watch regimes fall had their lives snatched away and had tried to make up or atone for it #and i think steve and natasha recognize that about each other and why they’re still such kindred spirits despite their conflicting perceptions of the world and of personhood itself (via shardsofblu)
"For one thing, learning how to control those abilities is a compelling arc for any werewolf. But I’m loving the gender flip here so much. Like, normally werewolf transmogrification is just a big heavy-handed metaphor for a MAN’s primal urges and there’s almost always a kind of disturbing undercurrent to it, like a constant threat of sexual violence toward whatever woman is trying to tame him. It’s a gross and tired trope, but seeing it reversed like this is like a breath of fresh air. Here it’s the dude who must be patient and understanding while the woman struggles to control herself. In this case Malia alternated between warning Stiles away and also bragging that she was looking forward to crushing his bones.”
200. Muggleborns singing pop songs in the common room and then everyone joins in. The purebloods get startled when they hear a quiet “I knew you were trouble when you walked in…” one moment, and then the next they’re blasted with “NOW I’M LYIN’ ON THE COLD HARD GROUND!”, and then something that sounds like mass screaming. One of the more sensitive students actually calls for a prefect.
