I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.

She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)

And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.

This is a REALLY good character analysis of Natasha.

my favorite thing in stories is when the antagonist doesn’t die, but instead they realize they were being kind of a stupid dick (maybe because the protagonist saved them or something) and then they have to kind of awkwardly tag along with the heroes in order to make up for their mistakes and gradually become slightly less evil

The Boston Symphony was performing Beethoven’s Ninth. In the piece, there’s a long passage about 20 minutes during which the double basses have nothing to do. Rather than sit around the whole time looking stupid, some bassists decided to sneak offstage and go to the…

My favorite thing about being an archer in Skyrim is when the slow motion kill cam follows the arrow and you get to sit back and watch as it just absolutely misses the target.

The name’s Mickey. Mickey Smith. Defending the earth.

And that’s what I call character development.

But why did they have to turn Martha into the scared one to do it though. They could’ve just been like ‘fuck yeah let’s do this together’

Sorry… I don’t normally do this, but this scene actually matters a lot to me. It’s my second favourite of the goodbyes in that episode (the first being Rose).

This moment isn’t about fear.  While the evil alien was still shooting at them, Martha never showed any fear (neither did Mickey, for that matter).  She was thrilled, laughing, and having a fantastic time.

The moment that is giffed on the right above is after the Sontaran has been dispatched and Martha and Mickey are seeing the Doctor and recognizing that he’s saying goodbye.  It’s not about fear, not of dying, but fear and upset on behalf of the Doctor, and Mickey isn’t protecting her, he’s comforting her.

This gifset, to me, isn’t about Mickey becoming brave, even though he did. It’s about Mickey becoming an adult.  On the left, he is a submissive member of the relationship, seeking comfort when he’s afraid.  In the second, he’s an equal member of the relationship, offering comfort when he and his partner are upset.  Because that’s what adults should do.

In addition, Martha turns to Mickey not simply, to my mind, to seek comfort, but also because she knows that he will need comfort as well.  Because the Doctor means a lot to both of them.
