friendly reminder that there’s a cut scene in Thor that while the Destroyer is blowing shit up, Darcy runs into the pet store to save all the animals and give them to people leaving the town

as things are being set on fire around her, she talks to the dog, telling him I  won’t let the big scary monster step on you,  and names it Baker


Why was this cut? I need that scene in the film!








Can I just say that one of my very favorite parts of Winter Soldier was Nick Fury cocking an eyebrow at the police officers side-eyeing his expensive vehicle and sneering, “You wanna see my lease?”

Because the idea of Nick Motherfucking Fury having to deal with shit as disgusting and petty as racial profiling is sort of painfully realistic and heartbreaking.  He’s hugely, massively powerful, and he’s sitting in his bulletproof car pondering decisions of worldwide import, but also he gets pulled over sometimes and asked for his registration because the police assume he stole it.  

Ack.  I was just so pleased that they included that line.

yeah the import of that really struck me the second time I watched the movie.

The driving while black bit was one of my favorite parts.

Yeah, this really struck me the second time when I wasn’t just sitting there terrified his car would blow up at any moment. It really makes you think of all the shit he had to go through to get where he is today and still the police give him the side eye when he drives up in an expensive car. Also, obviously we find out later they’re HYDRA agents but the car chase scene is literally a bunch of white guys in police uniforms shooting at a single black man and it’s an image we’ve seen a million times (on the news, in the movies, even on Agents of Shield with Mike Peterson) only this time the police are the bad guys and we’re rooting for Nick. I just thought, especially in the context of scene preceding it where it’s made clear that Nick’s had to deal with racism and profiling that it was a interesting choice to make HYDRA the police.

Or as he’s driving through the city with all these people disguised as cops chasing him and shooting at him and knowing that nobody would even think that he might be innocent and in need of help.


All these thingggssssssss

Confession: sometimes I come across subjects that I actually don’t agree are about sexism, but when I see someone in the discussion come out with "See, not EVERYTHING is about sexism, why do people always make it about that??" I literally just wanna puke in their direction and the direction of the people reblogging it like it’s some kind of profound statement.

9 times out of fucking 10, the person coming in to say that shit about ANY subject of oppression is some asshole with an agenda. The other 1 is some fucking idiot who doesn’t want to have to deal with guilt or introspection.

so when you people reblog that shit like they said the thing that had to be fucking said, I generally have to side eye you for even coming CLOSE to agreeing with that kind of sentiment.





Anyone else notice that Jenna’s hair in Robots Of Sherwood is much longer than she is currently sporting in the previous episodes?


What if she’s playing one of Clara’s echoes here? The echo could be Maid Marion, and we might get a similar scenario/nod to The Androids of Tara, when Romana was a double to the Princess. Even the names of the episodes sound suspiciously familar. (The Androids Of Tara/Robots Of Sherwood.)

she’s wearing extensions, as women in medieval times used to wear their hair much longer - but it IS our clara, certainly. lines quoted by people who were there for the filming made it pretty clear.

I’m wondering about the effort, though, just to make her fit in. Perhaps Maid Marion, or another person at court, is a robot that looks surprisingly like Clara. I’m thinking Clara is dressed up as this person, whomever it is, for some reason. I think it is a nod to the Androids Of Tara, I think we’re going to be seeing double. (Echo or not.)

And, although the thought of The Doctor threading extensions for Clara makes me giggle like mad, I’m wondering why The Doctor is okay with going around in his clothing, but goes through all that effort just for Clara?

It’s very possible something is going on, like I mentioned, Androids/Robots, we could be dealing with something from the past. And someone or something could be in danger.

(Just to add, I’m a medieval scholar. I minored in Medieval History when I did my BA three years ago. Coincidentally, my specialty is the Crusades.)

It could also be possible that there is some bit of a time jump. Perhaps Clara ends up having to spend a few months in Sherwood, without the Doctor, for whatever reason?

Or perhaps there is a time jump between last episode and this one, and to signify the passage of time, they gave her some extensions?
