The Real Copper Top

rob-anybody:

I always say this in tags, but I’m going to say it here for once because I’m so tired of people trying to pigeonhole Jane as just the ‘love interest’ and denying all the amazing things she does:

Please notice how Jane is completely focused on the science of Asgard and asking questions and comparing their equipment to Earth scientific equipment.

Now notice that Thor is the one looking at her like she’s made out of magic and unicorns and fairy dust while she’s so engrossed with science, she almost forgets he’s there.

Thor is the love interest in this movie; Jane is the badass scientist who helps save the world. Yes, they’re in love with each other, and yes, Jane gets weak in the knees when Thor is around, but so does Thor, and being in love doesn’t stop Jane from defeating Malekith with her science skills.

Love doesn’t make you weak, and being in love with the lead male character does not mean you are a boring, one-dimensional character who doesn’t do anything of note. Stop dismissing female fictional characters as worthless just because there’s a romance in the story.

Look at the first gif. That’s Natasha Romanov, master assassin, who just went toe-to-toe with the Hulk and lived. She’s just been told her partner in crime needs to be taken out.

Look at the second gif. That’s Natasha Romanov, master of the murder game, and she’s preparing to take out one of the only people in the world that she’s close to.

Look at the third gif. That’s Agent Romanov, legend of the criminal underworld, and she’s started putting together everything she knows about her target, every weakness she can exploit, every way she could get the upper hand.

Look at the fourth gif. That’s the Black Widow, the woman that makes Mob Bosses wet the bed, who haunts the nightmares of every damn low-life in the crime circle, and she motherfucking copies.

a reason I love this scene so much is because she was /scared/ of the hulk, like any sane human would be. and she was never portrayed as weaker for being scared, and she fought past it like an actual character. and that’s what I really love: it was a dimension, not just the one dimensional “strong” women characters that we’ve been getting (not that they’re all bad. Zoe, man) that are never ever allowed to be both scared and fucking badass and capable. and we need more characters that can be both, or badass and mourning, or badass but still feminine (stereotypically). because that shows females watching this that yes, you can be scared out of your fucking mind and still be someone who is capable enough to be the best in the world.

Everything about this.

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”

~Plato’s The Symposium.

How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”
