Mom French braided my mohawk. ♥
Melinda heads straight back to the cockpit, where she does an impersonation of Jemma (that Jemma overhears because she was heading to the cockpit to apologize).
"I’m Agent Jemma Simmons and I have three PhDs and I talk like this." Melinda fucking nails Jemma’s accent, and Jemma bursts into laughter and has to sit next to Melinda in silence for another hour.
They sit in silence and then abruptly May stands to leave the cockpit but stops at the door. “I’m Agent Jemma Simmons and I have three PhDs and I’m the top of my field and I could absolutely give Bruce Banner a run for his money and I make people smile and bring out the good in them and that’s just so incredibly important and my contributions to this team are never given their due but they ought to be.”
#i am so here for Jemma and her giant crush on May#and May mentoring Jemma because she’s a tiny small human with a heart bigger than them all#them respecting the light they see in each other#and helping each other shine brighter#and insisting the other see the light as they do#they could do each other a world of good (via eveningsandcoffeespoons)
Jemma goes to the lab almost screaming because Fitz I think May likes me what do you mean she likes you Fitz she said my contributions are important well they are important yes but this is Melinda May saying this and Fitz sighs and hopes this goes better than last time.
Jemma Simmons speaking the thoughts of every Melinda May fan (x)

Ok. I’m tired of the typical vampire, werewolf and fairy.I’m also tired of the occidental-centrism in mythology. Hence, this list.
I tried to included as many cultural variants as I could find and think of. (Unfortunately, I was restricted by language. Some Russian creatures looked very interesting but I don’t speak Russian…) Please, add creatures from your culture when reblogguing (if not already present). It took me a while to gather all those sites but I know it could be more expansive. I intend on periodically editing this list.
Of note: I did not include specific legendary creatures (Merlin, Pegasus, ect), gods/goddesses/deities and heroes.

(I have stumbled upon web sites that believed some of these mythical creatures exist today… Especially dragons, in fact. I just had to share the love and scepticism.)
This is by far the easiest one I’ve ever seen.
"Johanna, why do you smoke?"
"To die, Katniss."
HS AU: Katniss always thought degenerates were the only ones who smoked, and meeting Johanna only proved it to be more true lol. Unexpectedly, Katniss finds herself becoming more drawn to Johanna’s captivating character and broadens her perspective by being with her.
"This team does not need strong fighters, but people who are not weak in will.
This team does not stand on dreams alone, but a drive to get the goal.
This team does not haste, but we wait for the kill.
This team start foolish, but we become wise because we challenge.”
The 88th Trainee Squad was one of the best batches of trainees that had ever graduated. The class was led by Rico Brzenska, an exceptional soldier of many talents. However, her most defining trait is her ability to comprehend situations and root the safest and probably the best, most cost-effective solutions. Nanaba is a brave, young soul. Their determination and passion to serve humanity is their main drive in acing their classes. Hange Zoe may be an eccentric, often coming up with different ways and strategies to best their enemies, but this only betters their performance. Their curiosity lead to success and landed her as one of the best of their bunch. Anka Rheinberger impresses with her good timing, often thinking of the best ways to succeed and employing these strategies at the right time. Different, but these four are of the same color—dangerous.
In which these four, smart cuties are actually classmates (and friends) and they kicked everyone else’s asses with their beautiful minds. STRATEGISTS FTW (◡‿◡✿)
