Okay so, where I live (Canada, Newfoundland) we have the smallest ponies.
And the biggest dogs
Here’s a size comparison for the Newfoundland dog
That is a full grown dog and pony together LOOK AT THAT!
Now if you don’t think that’s the greatest shit ever I don’t know what is!
natasha romanoff & melinda may + (temporarily) tied to chairs
I’ve tried writing this meta about five times and wound up just melting into a puddle of emotions each time, but this is as coherent as I can be about the two of them (and allofthefeelings, thebrightgeist, etc, feel free to jump in here…)
I lovelovelove parallel gifsets like these because they show how similar and yet distinct the two of them are as agents and as people. Just in their fighting styles: Natasha fights like it is a dance, May like it is a competition to be won, and no wonder, given what we know about their respective backgrounds and upbringings. In the promo materials for the show May was described as having more black belts than Natasha, and I don’t think that that is meant to discredit either character nor pit them against each other - simply to say that May probably grew up collecting black belts while other kids collected whatever normal kids usually do. And it shows in how she fights: she fights in technical, precise, carefully calculated bursts of power, where Nat is more fluidity and grace, matter-of-fact destruction.
SHIELD must have had a running betting pool on a Romanoff vs May fight, but I don’t think that was how it was between them at all. They wouldn’t have been in competition with one another, much less wanted to. Natasha’s job was to extract secrets, May’s to extract people. Years ago, in the beginning, Fury used Nat to turn the tide in SHIELD’s favor, and used May as a Hail Mary in desperate situations; by the time we meet them the roles have flipped and Nat is sent in with the Avengers as one last desperate Hail Mary, while May tries to turn the tide as SHIELD falls.
The world’s most lethal women, and Melinda May calls the Black Widow Nat. Koenig boasts of a lie machine even Romanoff couldn’t beat, and Melinda May smirks a that’s my girl smirk - the same one she uses for Simmons, and for Skye - at the very mention of Romanoff as the standard. Maybe May didn’t know how to be a friend, not after Bahrain, and maybe Nat wasn’t looking to make friends, but May became a mentor, someone Natasha looked up to and respected.
And it makes me wonder if maybe, just maybe, a long time ago Agent Melinda May flew in to extract a newly turned agent who was backed into a corner, who other people had left, who other people had thought unworthy of trust, of rescue. And if after an eight hour flight spent in silence, that newly turned agent sensed something in the pilot that made her confess that she didn’t think SHIELD would come for her.
SHIELD didn’t, Melinda said, after a long time. I did.
And maybe, just maybe, in the years that pass they train together - in private, in the dead of the night, for May doesn’t perform and Nat has no need to - and learn from each other. Melinda teaches Nat wushu, Nat teaches May to improvise. Years later, May reaches for the nail gun, reaches for the electrical wire, saves her own life.
And Bahrain happens, and Natasha watches May make the choice of the good man, make the choice to leave behind all she’s ever known and train for, to do no more harm, to destroy herself before she can rebuild.
Natasha tries to wipe out the red. May tries to let the girl go. Neither of them really can.
Five years pass. New York happens and SHIELD falls, and Natasha makes the same choice May did, to blow all the covers she’s built and start all over again.
Regimes fall everyday, but Melinda May and Natasha Romanoff don’t. They fight on.
The phone rings, and Natasha picks up. “Nat,” Melinda says, and her voice cracks.
Natasha sits in silence and listens to Melinda fall apart without making a sound.
"Thank you," May says at the end, and she understands.
be buddies, like we used to be
i’m just gonna interrupt tonight’s screaming to point out that melinda may has black widow listed on her phone
It’s the middle of the month, and that means Whedonverse Appreciation has a new character, location, or relationship for you to gif, edit, or write about! This month is Melinda May Appreciation Month. From October 15 - November 14, 2014, we will be tracking the tags “whedonverseappreciation" and "mmam14”. For those wanting to participate, here is this month’s meme:
1 moment of hilarity
So this is much overdue, but before the next ep airs and everything becomes a discussion about Coulson/May, I wanted to get something down on paper about the May/Hunter storyline and narrative framing when it comes to Melinda May.
On an in-story level, I kind of do love…
the story of a fallen angel and a broken heart
