Peggy licking her lips at Skinny Steve will never cease to fill me with glee. THEIR LOVE. Did not require massive pecs, though she did, admittedly, consider them a bonus.



ANYWAY, yeah, so, Peggy. Steve did not introduce Peggy to anyone other than the 6 Howling Commandos. However many people were involved in Steve's traipse around Europe taking down Hydra, those 6 guys were the only ones that Steve specifically handpicked for the job, and Steve and Peggy's pre-freeze history isn't really all that extensive. I think it's therefore a given that when Peggy says she met her husband through Steve, we are being told that Peggy married one of the Howling Commandos. Which is Gabe.

Yeah, see canonically Peggy ends up with Gabe, albeit after a weirdly dickish move whereby Cap dumps her for Sharon. To me, comics aside, Gabe seems like the obvious choice anyway, as an apparently very well educated black man in the pre war era, he's certainly got the plucky, tenacious underdog thing going for him that Peggy obviously digs in a guy. And let's face it, she's hardly gonna marry Dum Dum, is she?

Yeah, so they're an interracial couple, which would fit totally with the movie Peggy that we know who doesn't really give a flying fuck what anyone thinks about anything. I reckon the Gabe thing is therefore more or less inevitable. And hawt.

Speaking of interracial couples, it seems unlikely to me that Gabe would be Triplett's grandfather, which seems to be the default assumption because: black. It's the assumption I also naturally made for the same reason and because Trip is awesome and Gabe, in my mind, is the best of all of them (he spoke languages, that's my entire reasoning really, I like an educated man) and to a certain extent the only HC I am interested in apart from maybe Dum Dum because Dum Dum is also awesome. I don't think the movies are going to go with the immense amount of partner-hopping that happens in the comics, and therefore the Gabe/Peggy thing would probably be permanent, and imply that Peggy is Trip's grandmother, which she isn't. I think it's more likely that Jacques is Trip's grandfather, hence Trip's strangely French name, Antoine.

In short: Gabe Jones and Howard Stark will be in Agent Carter, making it the most awesome show on television.

Speaking of partner-hopping: The kids were watching The Next Avengers dvd, the Next Avengers being a kiddie team of Avenger-related children, led by the son of Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff, whose name is (yeah, come on, what else would Steve's kid be called) James Rogers. Now I thought there was no paperwork to back that ship up, especially given Natasha's extremely long (not just by comic book standards) relationship with Bucky, but apparently I was wrong on that one. You live and learn.



So...

AGENTS OF SHIELD finale tonight.

I still say Stark's in it.

Feel free to point and laugh and tell I was wrong while I'm asleep tonight, then at least I won't be disappointed when I watch.

DAMMIT I HAVE BEEN SPOILED FOR THE FACT THAT THE SPOILERS I KNEW ABOUT SHIELD ARE INDEED THE CORRECT SPOILERS AND WTF FUCKSTICKS. I kind of saw that coming.

Oh, thank God only a few days to go until new S.H.I.E.L.D. shenanigans. I feel I have shown great restraint not gnawing the furniture during the hiatus, especially since finding out there's another week's pause in two weeks' time, the bastards.

I have also been very patient with the business pictured below, but it really needs to happen now, dudes. Get on that, will you?

philinda

Now give me closure, goddamn you!

Oh! Wait, you know how in TRACKS, Simmons tells Coulson that he looks MUCH too young to be her father? What if that's just a big cluehammer and that kid called Phil from the 50's playing with the Captain America shield in the film IS Coulson, and he's older than we think? Older than he thinks? What if he's a SHIELD super soldier experiment gone AWOL? He loves old shit, dudes, think about it.

I am rewatching MAoS, yes MARVEL'S Agents of SHIELD, because that is its proper name, mostly to kill the time I have to wait until my next fix and OMG PHEELS and all that. Pheels, coincidentally, about ALL OF THEM. The fact that I have feels about all of them is what drove me to rewatch the series from the beginning, because actually not hating on characters helps me pay a bit more attention, and stops me getting distracted by, you know, that ladyboner thing. MOVING ON, things what I have noticed:

Cut for length and maybe spoilers I dunno... )

In conclusion, then: Skye/Fitz totally needs to happen. Like, now.

Aaaagh

OMG SHIELD

ALL THE PHEELS.


(Lol, I'm so sad that I come out of that episode going Hey! Coulson/May UST! Everything is obvs going to be JUST FINE.)

Can someone explain to me where Clint/Coulson comes from? Because I sometimes feel like I missed an entire MARVEL film somewhere along the line where they had chemistry, of any kind. And don't just say Thor because Hawkeye called Phil 'sir' for a bit. I'm not a slash kind of person, but even if I were, WHY THEM?? I mean, you have Stark and that whole snarky he-pretends-not-to-know-your-first-name, you-pretend-to-not-be-impressed-by-him-but-you-are thing.

And then there's THIS:

coulson shield
(WHERE DID YOU GET THIS AND PLEASE CAN I HAVE IT?)

Coulson's BIG GAY MANCRUSH on Steve Rogers, which, you know, why don't people go there more? When was this Clint/Coulson thing decided upon? It's like somebody chose it and then all Marvel slash fangirls stuck their fingers in their ears and started running with it, despite canon giving them gift after gift of slashy goodness that doesn't involve Hawkeye at all.

I'm not a huge fic person, full stop, but I keep seeing it, Marvel people, Agents of Shield people, everyone seems obsessed by it. EXPLAIN YOURSELVES.

ETA: Is it the alliteration? I can understand that part of it, it's MARVEL, after all. It would be good if someone just came straight out and said, yeah, it's the alliteration, Whelk, that's all it is.

Hello, yes, Whedon family, are you listening?

LOOK AT THIS GOOFY FACE:
Coulson AFunnyThingHappened 1

I am serious here, I have but one request:

PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THIS MAN BE SUPER.

I'm worried, Whedon always has this power to make me worry about things that, thankfully, don't usually pan out, so there's that, but between Joss joking in an interview that Coulson may have superpowers, and AoS now, of all times, setting up the premise that people can be 0-8-4s, or objects of unknown origin, I'm worried that Whedon is going to tell us Phil is special.

HE'S NOT SPECIAL, HE'S JUST PHIL. That's the whole point of Phil, so please, guys, just think up another reason why SHIELD would have put in what you are implying is an enormous amount of manpower, technology, time and effort into keeping Coulson alive, like, he's just a nice guy or something? Fury likes him? Anything, really, apart from specialness.

Seriously, man, this sort of stuff here:

Coulson AFunnyThingHappened 2

It's really desperately important that those are skills he picked up from tae-bo tapes. Tae-bo tapes and Supernanny, that's Phil, okay? Are we clear on this, Whedons? Phil's just a dude. With a flying car.

Look, can everyone just go watch the Marvel One Shot called The Consultant so I know I won't be rambling into a void when I inevitably start rambling about its deeper meanings and how they relate to Coulson's character? Before I do that, feel free to just watch A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer over and over because, well, donuts and tae-bo.

Can you tell yet? SHIELD is my new talky show.

'So we're good, right?'

018

Coulson's blind optimism and faith in pretty much the being goodness of every person and situation makes me love him yet also lol at him in equal measure. I think the whole being-goodness of SHIELD itself will become a Thing this season, because the whole setup, the team, the bus, the absence of a fishtank, every single thing that is said and done by these dorks on a plane pretty much hinges on Coulson's absolute unshakable faith in the fact that SHIELD are the good guys. 'Sorry, ma'am, we're the good guys.' That was back in Thor, ffs, that sentence is pretty much the essence of what Coulson is. If anything, Skye's parents, What Happened In Tahiti, whatever, were to cause a chink in that blind faith the whole bus would go boom. Oh, Coulson, let me hug you better so that never has to happen.

Also
003

I keep thinking they're converging around an air hockey table. I bet it turns into an air hockey table at some point.

Coulson Lola

Oh, you silly sexy Agents of SHIELD. I have decided that though I find Coulson/May quite hawt, and Coulson/Lola is obviously the biggest ship of the show, Fitz/Simmons is a total red herring and my head canon is veering towards Fitz/Skye, provided Skye becomes more interesting to me than she currently is, and Coulson/Simmons. The latter being all kinds of wrong like Artie/Claudia wrong, which is what makes it great. I couldn't care less who Ward does and I think Melinda is probably perfectly content looking after herself or joining in on the car sex every so often. Simmons frowns on the car sex, but tolerates it because, you know, it's Coulson, he's got... quirks.
