I never understood why cops ask questions like:
"Do you know why I’m standing here?"
"Do you know why I stopped you?"
"Do you know why I’m here?"
Like, figure out your spatial, existential issues elsewhere, bruh.
Pssst spoilers for real life: It’s because they’re trying to get you to self-incriminate. Always respond to such questions by reflecting the question respectfully.
"Do you know why I stopped you?"
"Why did you stop me, Officer?"
When The Avengers hit theaters almost two years ago, a lot of people made fun of Hawkeye and Black Widow because they were regular human beings teamed up with a super-soldier, a man in a flying metal fighting suit, a giant green monster with unimaginable strength, and a god. And it’s true that Hawkeye seemed like he existed primarily as a plot point, but Black Widow, now, she kicked ass and showed some serious depth as a character.
If you’re still skeptical, try thinking of Black Widow this way: She’s an human being without super powers. She’s an amazing athlete with serious expertise in several martial arts. She dresses in black, and wears a belt. She sometimes uses gadgets. She’s incredibly stealthy. Some seriously bad things have happened to her in the past. She doesn’t always exactly follow the law. Sound familiar?
I’m not saying that the Widow is precisely a female version of Batman – there are many obvious differences, most prominently her use of guns and willingness to kill. But I’d be willing to bet that most of the people who scoffed at the Widow’s presence in The Avengers would never dream of saying anything of that sort about Batman. The fact is that Black Widow, as portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is a terrific character who absolutely belongs with the more conventional superheroes.
Nowhere is this more evident than in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Black Widow has a much bigger role in this film than she’s had before, and you get to see just how multifaceted her character really is, as well as see her kick some more very serious ass. In movies, she’s the best argument there has been so far that calling characters like her “female superheroes” or “superheroines” is just silly: she, and they, are superheroes; the fact that they’re female really isn’t relevant."
I’d thought it was cute how everyone in the HTTYD fandom seemed to agree that HTTYD 3 would start with this. I finally started to read the book for the first time ever, I read the first sentence and cried.
Actually, it’s Dean Deblois who mentioned that the last movie will END with this line.
I think that’s why everyone’s caught onto it now (aside from everyone who’s read the books)
And I think THAT is what’s going to make everyone cry. Because the point of these movies/books is to tell us why dragons no longer exist through Hiccup’s story.
Fuck, here come the feels.
Imagine Teddy getting a howler from Tonks and he starts to freak out but when he opens it, it’s like
TEDDY GUESS WHAT, THE WEIRD SISTERS ARE COMING TO TOWN. PACK YOUR THINGS, SON, I ALREADY TALKED TO MCGONAGALL AND SHE SAID IT’S COOL. MERLIN’S PANTS I’M SO EXCITED. DON’T TELL ANYONE OKAY, MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T TELL DAD EITHER. OH FUCK, IS THIS A HOWLER? I FUCKED UP, I FUCKED UP.
