*planet explodes* *removes one earbud* what
are oranges named oranges because oranges are orange or is orange called orange because oranges are orange
The colour was named after the fruit. Before that, people would just use the colour red to describe something that we consider orange now. It’s why we call gingers red-heads and why robins are red breasted, when really they’re an orange colour.
Anonymous said: It was Gamora's story. But. Silence and patience, or, being able to consciously shape how others perceive her has probably been a key survival skill for her all her life. In the home that she has as a backstory, she had to learn that watchful patience, or die. Is it a coincidence, though, that so many of the female superheroes we are seeing in movies at the moment are so damaged and abused that they have to be what others expect or what others need all the goddamn time? -Jenna
Hi! Yes, you’re right, Gamora had reason not to to yell about her nonconsensual making the way Rocket did. (She had similar reason not to give Peter her backstory at all, but, well, exposition, I suppose). I would have loved to see the narrative yell for her though.
But what your ask really makes me want is a Rescue movie, actually. I mean, I love Gamora, I love Natasha, I love these “all things to all people all the time” women and their sharp complexity, but you’re right that that is one of the only kinds of superheroine we’re given on the big screen.
So how about this: let’s do a trilogy: the unreliable narrator backstory of little Natasha Romanoff and the Red Room; a Gamora and Nebula film to rival the greatest heights of Loki and Thor’s bro-angst; and Rescue, which is Pepper Potts kicking butt in an Iron Man suit while Tony freaks out in her earpiece.
Oh, yes, I want a buddy cop Rescue/War Machine movie. That’s it. Pepper and Rhodey saving the world really competently. Rolling their eyes at Tony. This is what my heart calls for. Co-starring the Falcon. Yes.
And instead of Thor 3, let’s have Jane, who is studying the Bifrost on a grant from NASA (who, years after the fact, is still hyperventilating over the existence of aliens), discover Loki posing as Odin. Thor is off avengering someplace out of cell reception, so Jane and her erstwhile intern Darcy Lewis have to team up with Sif to reveal Loki and save both worlds. Jane saves the universe with science. Again. Sif and Darcy make out.
Oh, oh, and the Nick Fury and Maria Hill movie, where they hunt down HYDRA agents around the world; Nick on the ground, having to adjust to being a field agent again, having to rediscover what kind of hero he wants to be after his faith in his own judgement was shattered by Pierce’s betrayal, and Maria playing the intelligence game from Stark headquarters, going drinking with Pepper and fending off HYDRA assassins like flies.
A Sharon Carter and Natasha Romanoff film, where Sharon is sent by the CIA to covertly investigate a series of suspicous killings just outside Moscow after one of their own agents is found dead. Sharon finds Natasha there (Natasha probably saves her butt in the middle of a firefight and/or car chase, then dramatically enters the scene) and Natasha offers to team up, but Sharon is uncertain if Nat is really chasing the people behind the assassinations or if she’s the killer herself.
I’m liking a great many of these ideas. I’d watch ‘em. Lots.
This is fantastic, and I’d just add one name:
