when thinking about your ot3, consider this:

• which two team up to try and stop the other from buying ugly furniture for the house?

• which one is always bringing home silly hats to put on the more serious partner’s head?

• which one is constantly talking with their mouth full, and which partner gets offended by their bad manners?

• who does the taxes

• who tries to help with the taxes and only makes it more difficult

• which partner is morally against paying taxes

what if khan’s blood does eventually turn kirk into a homicidal madman and that’s how we get mirrorverse kirk

                  (tags via itreallyisthelittlethings)

Holy crap.  This is fantastic.

Because hell yeah - promotion via death (“Oh, our CMO bought it in that last attack?  Looks like you’ve got the job now, McCoy” - what the hell, that’s not how the chain of command works!), acting captain (Spock) and ex-first officer (Kirk) get into punch-up on deck and not alone an ordinary fight, Spock is very nearly strangling him to death, and everyone just stands there and looks on? Where the hell were Security in that scene?  Nobody called them?  Nobody - not even McCoy - tries to pull Spock off Kirk?

We go from Spock not wanting to assign Uhura to the Enterprise in order to “avoid the appearance of favoritism” (translation: ‘everyone will think you only got the posting because we’re screwing’) to Carol Marcus and That Scene because while you do need to be good at your job, the unspoken addendum that everyone knows is that it does no harm to flash the goods for the guy in charge so he knows what’s on offer.

No rank badges on the women’s uniforms unless they’re wearing the long-sleeved version of the uniform - not that far from the midriff-baring uniforms of mirror!verse for the women.

No attempt to evacuate the people in San Francisco or even, as far as we can see, have a warning siren blaring as Enterprise and Vengeance scream through the atmosphere overhead - why, is this because screw them, they’re only dumb civilians?

The only way the scene in Starfleet Headquarters with ‘Harrison’ makes sense is if Admiral Marcus is string-pulling: “Oh my, we’re just having a top secret high security meeting with the ranking Starfleet officers after a terrorist attack on one of our facilities, so of course we’re having it in an unshielded room with ceiling-to-floor windows where the guy responsible for that bomb can fly up right up to the window and blow you all away, conveniently leaving me in sole charge to prosecute my plans”?

Heading for the mirror!verse makes a scary amount of sense.  Vulcan (the voice of reason as most everyone accepts, the one planet which had a restraining effect on Terra because come on, the Tellarians and the Andorians aren’t even at the races in reboot) is gone.  Starfleet is on a war footing, whether that’s admitted or not (they actively went out looking for potential threats after Nero which is how they found the Botany Bay and Khan), there’s not a word about the civilian government of the Federation - the President and Council - which makes it seem like Starfleet is the one body making decisions on a grand scale.

Nearly thirty years of paranoia after Nero (the destruction of the Kelvin may have had a huge effect on skewing the development of both Starfleet’s approach and civilian politics) resulting in militarisation, seeing enemies and potential enemies everywhere, an attitude of “you could be killed in the morning through no fault of your own”, ‘dead men’s shoes’ being acceptable as a career ladder, casual sexism and trading sexual favours for promotion/better opportunities being accepted within Starfleet, casual and routine lying on reports (see how outraged Kirk is that Spock told the truth about what happened on Nibiru!) leading to blatant ditching of the Prime Directive, the perception that the only way Terra will be truly safe is to get them before they can get us - it’s easy to see it happening.

Maybe the reason we don’t hear about Tarsus IV and how it affected reboot Kirk (because a traumatic event like that would certainly explain why he turned out to be “the Mid-West’s only genius-level repeat offender”) is that in this universe, the Governor is not regarded as Kodos the Executioner, but Kodos the Saviour - after all, he kept half the population alive until the relief ships could arrive, and without his forward thinking, determination and leadership, a lot more people would have died for no good reason (instead of being sacrificed as ‘useless mouths’ for the fit to survive).

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

Everything’s changing. A little while ago, most people went to bed thinking that the craziest thing in the world was a billionaire in a flying metal suit. Then aliens invade New York then were beaten back by among others, a giant green monster, a costumed hero from the 40’s, and a God.

She is no ordinary female — She is an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.!



facina-oris:

HYDRA was founded on the belief that humanity could not be trusted with its own freedom. What we did not realize, was that if you try to take that freedom, they resist. The war taught us much. Humanity needed to surrender its freedom willingly. After the war, SHIELD was founded and I was recruited. The new HYDRA grew. A beautiful parasite inside SHIELD. For seventy years HYDRA has been secretly feeding crisis, reaping war. And when history did not cooperate, history was changed.

❛ well.  i  would  say  agent,
but … that’s not exactly correct anymore,
                                                   is it? 

"Maria works just fine, Captain."

           Well hello, sweetheart. Barney Stinson, a pleasure.
              I’ve never worked beneath a powerful woman, but 
              you can direct me anytime

"It’s Commander, not sweetheart. Second:
 cut the ‘charm’ act. I’m not interested and
 I’m not going to be, so let’s just get that
 out of the way right now so we can speak
 like professionals.”
