#one of those times when everyone (including steve) is like holy fucking shit this chick is brilliant#and like really fucking good at her job#and like wow now i see why she’s SHIELD’s top agent#i should let her run everything#she should be in charge#etc etc
#basically#can we also just not forget that had natasha not been on the lookout and seen rumlow on the escalator that would’ve been it#also i love how this is one of the more perfect examples of spy vs soldier#steve is used to reacting#his first instinct is to engage and think about how he can phyically defend himself in a fight#natasha is used to acting#her first instinct is to figure out the best way to hide and be stealth and quietly play the game#because for as much as the black widow likes to draw people into her web (see: bucky on the causeway) she plays it quiet 90% of the time#which is basically her strength and what makes her so good at what she does

today i tried to smile at someone with water in my mouth and almost died
I’m on my phone so idk what that gif is but i have feeling it’s either spn related or it’s the gif of harry smiling at cho
omg this reminds me of the most adorable time when my friend had leaked in art class and she was tearing up a bit and this guy who’s usually quiet but is judged as a jerk because his friends tend to be jerks gets up and throws red paint on the side of her shorts and on his own shorts and throws a couple of other colors in too and starts a mini paint war and other people joined in and i nearly cried because of how cute it was
Hold on to those men and never let go
Roy and Oliver run into each other buying tampons/chocolate for Thea and Felicity.
[I hope this came across the way I wanted it to because I think it is the sweetest thing imaginable when guys take care of the girls in their lives without being embarrassed about it.]
“Roy!” Oliver glanced up in surprise, just as Roy simultaneously noticed him, too.
“Dude,” Roy said, hurriedly shifting something behind his back. Until he looked down and saw the same item in Oliver’s hands. He laughed. “You, too, huh?” he asked, holding up the box of Tampons in embarrassment.
Oliver chuckled. “They must be on the same, uh, cycle,” he said awkwardly.
Oliver glanced at the box in Roy’s hands and shook his head, taking it and placing it back on the shelf before seeking out a different brand and handing it to Roy. “She prefers plastic; trust me on this. I got guilted into these pharmacy runs a lot growing up.”
There was an awkward pause.
“Okay, do you know what kind of chocolate I’m supposed to get her? Because she said surprise her and I don’t know if she meant to actually surprise her or to magically remember what her favorite is because—”
“She likes Cadbury. I gotta pick up some mint chocolate chip ice cream for Felicity, too,” Oliver chuckled. “Here, I’ll check the candy with you and see if they have her favorite flavor.”
“Oh my God, thank you,” Roy sighed, and Oliver patted him on the shoulder.
“Welcome to my world.”
“Do we lose, like, man points for this or something?” Roy asked while they perused the candy section and Oliver found the Cadbury bars that had almonds and dried fruit for Thea.
Oliver shook his head. “Actually, all things considered, I think we gain a few.”
Roy thought that over bemusedly. “That’s…probably true, actually.”
