I’m my own woman, first, last, and always.
That time Peter Parker was trained by Natasha Romanoff.

Don’t you love how Peter can do it with his calves but Natasha has to use her inner thighs. This whole equality thing is great.
Thighs are stronger than calves, and you can get a tighter grip, as well as have a higher chance of breaking things. Peter was intending to disarm, Natasha was ready to kill. Natasha is a trained assassin, and Peter is a student who works for a newspaper.
Given their backgrounds and experiences, it would be UNequal to have Peter using skills and disarming tactics that Natasha was trained to do so.
So yes, this whole equality thing is great.
This post is brilliant.
also peter has bALLS OK you dont want to SLAM YOUR FUCKING TESTICLES into someons fucking SKULL

i discovered the writer, leo tolstoy, in a muddy ditch that held more blood than rain. one of the soldiers loved his words—and then, so did i. “all, everything, that i understand,” he wrote, “i understand only because i love.” that was so many years ago. but words on a page didn’t teach me that lesson. i learned it on my own. i learned it in trenches with bullets flying overhead; pressed back to back with grizzled starving men who would have laid their lives for mine. i learned it from a ribbon tied around my finger. i learned it from a kick inside my belly. i learned it from death, and hardship, and brief acts of kindness. i learned love from sacrifice. i learned love from living. and no matter where i’ve gone or what i’ve done—all the dark things i do not regret, but will never speak of—that is the one part of me that i have always kept safe. imus was such a fool. tolstoy will live forever. some people do. but that’s not enough. it’s not the length of a life that matters…just the depth of it. the chances we take. the paths we choose. how we go on after our hearts break. hearts always break. and so we bend with our hearts. and we sway. but in the end…what matters is that we loved…and lived.
This is the picture I commissioned from Gingerhaze! My exact email went like this: "I would like to commission a picture of Hawkeye and Black Widow dressed up like James Bond and a Bond Girl. (I’m not picky on which one is dressed like which, wink wink)" and Noelle knew exactly what to do.
I’m keeping the high-res version all to myself (except for the copy that I’m going to print and hang in my cubicle at work, because people should know who they’re dealing with) :P
Hawkeye’s butt is amazing in high-res, just FYI.
I keep forgetting to post these commissions. Thanks for doing it for me! :D
Samuel L. Jackson on Nick Fury’s relationship with Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
And when I talk to Natasha, it’s as a father figure because he loves her in a way that he doesn’t love anybody else as part of that whole group of people. The fact that they’re both members of this shadow world and he knows her past in a way that no one else knows it, there’s an affection and a respect there and a knowledge of that kind of person she is in there. Even if she loves him, if she had to kill him, she would, and he understands that. There’s a way of dealing with her that he can’t deal with anybody else. (x)
