“I ’’ve got red in my ledger
I’d like to wipe it out.” [x]
Those really do sting.
Was that your first kiss since 1945?

Now she was fun. I love the way her outfit came out. After this chibi I felt better (I still am kinda mad about the wifi being out at home)

Tony. Steve. Thor. Bruce. Clint.
Five male characters sharing the same universe. Plenty of fans to go around. I’m sure we can handle two women being awesome at the same time if we really put our minds to it.
What I’m far more worried about is fandom pitting Carol and Natasha against one another, as they already do when it comes to the “who deserves a movie more?!?” posts, which act as though this is a zero sum game. (Fandom would have us believe that only one movie that isn’t about a white guy can ever be made.)
And let us not forget that Gamora is a character that exists in the MCU and -if there’s any justice in the world- needs a huge fandom behind her rallying for her to headline a movie as well. Or that Scarlet Witch will be in Age of Ultron, a character for which I have the highest hopes.
I desperately want Carol in the MCU, anon. I want Carol/Natasha friendship fic and femmeslash and adorable fanart and headcanons that make my heart hurt.
I want my cup to runneth over with Marvel leading ladies. I want an embarrassment of riches. I want to forget the Smurfette Principle was ever a thing. Give me as many leading ladies in as many different movies as you can imagine.
black widow + quotes
Everyone says they was to see Cap pick up Thor’s hammer in AoU, but everyone knows that Cap’s a good guy.
No, what I want is for Natasha to pick it up. In the heat of battle, and it lands beside her, and she gets cornered so she grabs for a piece of debris to attack with and she just swings it completely without meaning too.
Then she realises that maybe she’s good, maybe she’s wiped out the red in her ledger.
Maybe she’ll realise that she’s a hero.
the avengers as greek mythological figures: natasha romanoff as aphrodite/helen of troy
a woman so beautiful and so flexible in her beauty that she becomes a goddess on earth, becoming the pinnacle of these men’s dreams, the woman on to which everyone else projects their desire so that she becomes a figure of iconography. and that’s what natasha does, this is how she tricks loki and this is how she tricks the men in the beginning - she gives them what they want to see, she plays into the misogyny of these men. she’s the fragile hypocritical weak mewling woman that loki thinks he’s dealing with and she lets the men think that she’s in over her head, she knows what they want and she gives it to them. she’s willing to play the part of the passive victim, but beneath that she is aphrodite - the architect of beauty, the maker of love. and love and beauty is a dangerous weapon, because you can deflect ares’s sword and you can even outwit athena (but careful of the aftermath) but you can’t cut down your own desires in the best of cases. you want to want, and natasha romanoff, like aphrodite with helen and paris, will deliver that to you, and watch you kill yourself from the inside out.
