W i p e him. Start over.
What kills me is up to that last gif he hasn’t been making eye contact. He’s been lost in his own confusion and memories and even his lashing out is not from a desire to hurt everyone, but from flashbacks. He’s treated like a thing and he acts like a thing. Even his not answering how Pierce wants isn’t defiant, it’s like a broken record. He’s completely submissive to everyone in that room, disturbingly so. The scene was him being completely vulnerable (he has weapons pulled on him, he’s half dressed surrounded by men in SWAT gear, he looks like a chastened child).
But the last gif he makes eye contact. Because this question is so important to him. Seventy years of being a THING and there’s this glimmer of SOMETHING. There’s a name. There’s a person. There’s a chance he’s not just some weapon to be used and abused as needed. They talk around him, they ignore him, they abuse him…but this is important enough for him to pursue. So he makes eye contact. Like a HUMAN. That eye contact. That look of “I KNOW I know this…and I know you’re gonna take it from me…I know you’re going to hurt me for knowing this…but I KNOW it no matter what you say”. That second gif is regret that he can’t let go of this rabbit trail, but that third one…that third one says “I know you’re lying to me and I know that doesn’t matter because I’m too broken to fight back, but I know I’m right”.
No wonder Pierce doesn’t even bother to demand anything but wiping him after that look. His weapon just looked at him like a human.
EXCUSE ME, FANDOM, BUT COULD YOU STOP IT WITH YOUR ACCURATE AND HEART-BREAKING META LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO PULL MYSELF BACK TOGETHER? THANKS.
Mickey is that type of monogamist that gets angry when he’s propositioned even if the person doesn’t know he’s taken, even when Ian isn’t around, in which, “Fuck off” is code for “How fucking dare you, don’t you know I’m taken, don’t you know I’m so off the market because…
Marvel Sequels: No One Ever Gets a Haircut
A Japanese dwarf flying squirrel with her babies
Also, Black Widow accomplished all of it without being a billionaire.
And without being a moody-ass shit.
I want Linda back.
I want Mickey working at the shop.
I want Linda Mickey banter.
I want more on the fact that Mickey is so obviously scared of Linda.
I want Linda giving Mickey dirty looks because it’s his fault Ian is gone.
I want to see Linda sending sympathetic looks at Mickey when he can’t see her.
I want Mickey x Linda brotp.
My favourite moment in the series.
#it’s just so awesome to see a young woman surrounded by men who are earnestly interested in her opinion #esp. on *ships* #do you know how often i see women get shut down when they try to join in discussions on cars #but they’re all like #”nah this girl knows her shit” #”let’s talk to her about it” #i mean they SHUT DOWN A GUY ASKING HER TO DANCE BECAUSE SHE’S *TALKING* (via dropkicks)
Can we talk about her expression? She was beaten and hurt and refused to acknowledged it and even hit Ian when he tried to get her to do something. And then she saw him lose it and she’s pretty much ruined. She’s realizing that he cares an awful lot about her and that he’s actually willing to kill for her, and she’s sad that Ian is behaving that way and she wishes she didn’t have to witness that side of him.
that one otp that you can’t stop shipping even after you gave up the show
According to Kev, being ‘ghetto married’ is when someone cooks for you, does your laundry, stays over at least 4x a week, and helps with random stuff…
Mickey’s one load of laundry from quasi-bigamy.
