THIS IS MARRIAGE!!
Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.
He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”
Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT
LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT.
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.
^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.
I mean, he knew she was Cersei… lol
And the women were trained the exact same way as men were. As children they were equals ; they were not allowed to wear clothing until a certain age and at that point they were sent away to a training camp until they were 18. It was only the men who were sent into the wilderness for an extra two years to ensure their strength for battle.
Plus the women could marry whomever they pleased and the men weren’t allowed to live with the women in their house until she said so. And they were tough in Sparta but also all about family. To have male offspring was good luck, to have female offspring was an honour.
This part of the movie was true; King Leonidas really did kill a man because he insulted his wife and he always ensured that he had his wife’s approval. And while Leonidas was away in battle she did rule Sparta on her own.
Sparta knew what was up.
In all my dreams, dear, you seem to leave me
“I AM ANGRY, SHORT, AND I HAVE MORE MOVIES THAN YOU. RESPECT ME. STEVE. STEVE. STEVE.”
Oh god, Tony looks so fucking done. “I AM TONY FUCKING STARK. I SHOULD BE TALLER THAN ALL OF YOU. GODAMMIT. PEPPER, GET ME A FOOTSTOOL.”
PEPPER, GET ME A FOOTSTOOL.
I’LL GET YOU 12% OF A FOOTSTOOL.
"LOOK I FOUND A SCIENCE I FOUND IT I FOUND THE SCIENCE LOOK THOR LOOK ITS A SCIENCE OMFG SCIENCE"
meanwhile the people passing by are like “thor control ur human shes doing weird thing”
#Steve that’s a judging face #are you judging Tony #I think you are #just because he put his name on a building too doesn’t mean he wants to take over the world #Tony wouldn’t have any idea what the fuck to do with the world if he had it #he’d probably give it to Pepper
reblogging for he’d probably give it to Pepper
He’d totally give it to Pepper.
And Pepper would give him the “…YOU ASSHAT.” face before taking it and running it better than it probably deserved. Honestly, Tony’s been accidentally training Pepper to run the universe since he hired her. And it’s a testament to her awesome that she’s handled it.
Anyway, Tony is incredibly selfish and self-serving… until he isn’t. Which usually happens pretty quickly. I kind of get that? I mean, I’m the same way, but on a much smaller scale. I want something really bad (I NEED IT, I NEED IT), I work my butt off to find the ABSOLUTE BEST THING THAT IS of the thing I want, I save and scrimp and GET IT, and then two months later it’s usually sitting at the bottom of a drawer, or on a shelf, or I gave it to someone who it suited better.
Tony’s kind of similar? I mean, just look at his art collection. He kinda just… stored it, then gave it to the Boy Scouts of America because he was dying? And while the “BECAUSE HE WAS DYING” thing was pretty prominent, he mostly just had it in storage? I mean, Tony Stark as a character was supposed to be a bit of an amalgamation of Howard Hughes and William Randoph Hearst (as well as other famous million/billionaires during the 1960s, also BATMAN) and I find it interesting and a lot funny that in the movies he’s much more WRH? And yeah, some of it comes out of the fact that IM established him as a West Coast billionaire dude, rather than an East Coast one, but the whole acquisition bent he has in the first film is very, very reminiscent of WRH.
Yeah, I lost the plot there. HE WOULD TOTALLY GIVE THE WORLD TO PEPPER AND TRUST HER TO HANDLE THAT. Then he’d run off to his batcave/lab and perfect desalinization or something. Or, like, spend six weeks trying to figure out better Girl Scout cookie recipes. Or figure out how to build and destroy Skynet. Or, I dunno. Build a starship. Whatever.
YES THIS I LOVE THE COMBINATIONS
I love how Tony is like “THESE. THESE ARE MINE. YOU CAN’T HAVE EITHER.”
OH MY GOD. My love for this is OFF THE CHARTS.
CLINT AND NATASHA
I CAN’T EVEN WITH ALL OF THEM
Loki is the most defensive. So adorable.
^and yet so close to his big brother.
I think I’m going to cry…
Cap is mine. Bruce is mine. Thor, also mine. Loki mine too. You can have birdbrain. Birdbrain isn’t mine.
if this isn’t at the end of TASM, I will probably cry
oh my god CAN YOU IMAGINE
I NEED THIS TO HAPPEN SO BAD
