Interviewer: You’re about to release your 4th baby. Congratulations!
Jared: You’d think it gets easier but I suppose we have very tight vaginas.
Sometimes I feel like there at thousands of us, sometimes it seems like barely 300. I just want to see how many of us there are :)

Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers? Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and figured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the machine?
Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?
Anyone else remember that? I sure do.
#and remember how they didn’t sexualize her #remember how she was independent and didn’t need a male crutch #remember how when loki implied that she needed a man she completely tore him down #remember how natasha romanov doesn’t take shit from nobody #especially not a man
Remember how all of the men on her team just automatically accepted her as equal and didn’t question it because 1) she’s awesome and 2) they are all surrounded by amazing capable women in their own lives,
Bruce has Betty, the only person who was brave enough to face the Hulk before he met the team.
Steve with Peggy who kicked arse and took names and wouldn’t put up with Howard’s jokes or Steve being unreasonably jelous.
Thor who grew up with and fought along side Sif and stuck by her even when everyone else laughed because she was such a good warrior and he wanted everyone to know it and he trusts her so much and on top of that there’s Jane and Darcy who are just so certain of themselves and their own power that they take on Agent Coulson and the God of Thunder respectively
Tony with Pepper, the only person he can trust in the whole world, who runs his life and has for 10 years. The one person he literally can’t function without the only one he could entrust his entire company to when he thought he was dying because she does all that anyway! The one he trusts with the keycode to his workshop, his safe space where he can just be himself.
And Hawkeye who has her and they are so close that they don’t even need to talk and he knew the moment he saw her that she was too good to simply kill, that she was too great an asset to lose and that he was probably scared that he’d miss and she’d fuck his shit up.
