Not every Stydia shipper hates Malia and not every Stalia shipper hates Lydia. Please let that be understood
#she fucking realizes hes not gonna catch her#look at her fucking face#she realizes that he cant get to her in time#that peter parker or spiderman whatever you want to call him because under that mask hes still just a boy who only just graduated high schoo#he cant save them all#he cant save her#and it breaks my fucking heart that he thought he did#that he actually thought he got to her in time and hes so confused when he reaches her#he doesnt understand why her eyes are closed#and you just know that he sat there with her for a while#he didnt move her or himself he just held her undtil her body grew cold and he carried her out ( reformedxserialxkiller )
The price of freedom is high… and it’s a price I’m willing to pay! You told me not trust anyone and this is how it ends: EVERYTHING goes!

There’s a tendency in comics, and all fiction really, for women in notably male-dominated vocations, ie punching people, to attribute it to male influence. She grew up with four brothers, or her dad wanted a boy, her boyfriend was into it, etc. It’s rare for a female character to just up and do something you usually perceive to do a man’s thing to do.
One reason I like the Carter girls is that Sharon became a SHIELD agent because her aunt and idol was a French Resistance operative. Her aunt. Not her dad, or uncle, or whoever. Her hero and idol is a woman.
Why’d Peggy join the French resistance? Because fuck Nazis, that’s why. She wasn’t involved with a French lover who was killed by the Nazis, her father wasn’t a soldier, she was studying in Paris when the Nazis rolled in, and Peggy Carter would have none of it.
Similarly, in the movie, Steve questions why a beautiful woman would choose to join the Army, but he’s just being a dork and never gets an answer. He never repeats the question and we never do learn, just like we never learn how Falsworth, Dugan or Bucky joined up. Because you don’t need to know, you kind of figure they did it because that’s what they chose to do. It isn’t much of a mystery why the men would take up arms for their country, and the screenwriters don’t treat Peggy any different.
THIS IS LITERALLY SO CUTE
