Hi. I would just like to emphasize how much I love this scene.
Because you know why?
In the previous MCU movies when he was first introduced, he was just this agent tasked to babysit Tony Stark, being the person Pepper approached when things went south. He was that person to go to to get things done or when you need back-up - when you need protection.
He was the person to get unknown objects like Thor’s hammer for the sake of everyone’s safety, to make sure it doesn’t cause any harm to anyone until they figured out what it was. He was the person who gets donuts on the way to his next task.
Like a person who does things because he was supposed to do his job.
But this scene shows why he was in this organisation. When everything was crumbling down and those men were running and yet their minds were on those boxes. Goodness knows what was in those boxes. An 084? Arm weapons? Scientific equipments? Anything important?
Yet Coulson’s instincts was for them to be out safely. His instincts were to protect. His instincts were to rescue.
Because that was what SHIELD is about, to protect the people.
And this scene, when Coulson told them to leave everything, told them to go. He technically saved them all. When they finally got into the truck and they managed to get away, the base crumbled behind them and those were just a matter of seconds, seconds that Coulson called when he prioritised those agents’ lives
To have minimal lives lost as possible and that was what he did, save those agents. Without thinking twice.
I freakin love AC.
if you don’t have me on facebook you are probably not missing out on any posts but the comment section is important too lmao
I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
but imagine if we had tiny little dragons
the size of puppies
and they would go wherever we went sitting on our shoulders and hissing at everyone who tried to touch you because you’re their most special thing in the universe and they are so tiny it’s ridiculously cute
the fact that this post has more notes than i ever expected makes me really glad
These two intellectually disabled half brothers, at the ages of 15 and 19, were coerced into signing statements, after hours of interrogation that would lead to their incarceration.
THEY HAVE BEEN IN JAIL LONGER THEN MUST OF YA’LL HAVE BEEN ALIVE FOR SOMETHING THEY DID NOT DO.
police aint shit bruh I hate them so much at this fucking point
Not just police:
Their release concluded a judicial horror story in which the two men were sent to death row though no physical evidence linked them to the murder. At the same time, a serial sex offender who lived less than 100 yards from the crime scene — and who, a few weeks after that murder, would kill a teenage girl nearby in strikingly similar circumstances — was never pursued as a suspect.
But if the case was finally closed, the episode reopened ugly memories of what critics say was a merciless criminal justice system that ran roughshod over helpless people for decades in this poor, sprawling, racially volatile county sometime known as the Great State of Robeson.
At the heart of that is the legacy of Joe Freeman Britt, who earned a spot in “Guinness World Records” and a “60 Minutes” profile for his prowess in sending people to death row. (read more)
