There was an idea called The Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to, to fight the battles that we never could. Phil Coulson died still believing in that idea, in heroes.

"Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors."
"My father had taught me to be nice first, because you can always be mean later, but once you’ve been mean to someone, they won’t believe the nice anymore. So be nice, be nice, until it’s time to stop being nice, then destroy them."

↳ “I’m scared that I’m not myself in here and I’m scared that I am.”
CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THEIR FACES RIGHT NOW?
Tony: Well, he clearly looks like he’s gazing upon the love of his life, like no woman has ever looked more beautiful. This is the expression I would expect to see of a groom seeing his bride for the first time— completely in awe, unable to even fully smile because he’s so overcome with emotion and yet that bubble of happiness that fills his heart cannot be contained. He is lit from the inside, radiating love, completley smitten.
Ziva: Her face is something completely different. She looks like she’s just been sucker-punched; you can see she’s winded. This is the look of that feeling you get when you see your crush— so completely verklempt, you know your feelings, as of yet unrequited, are written on your face but it doesn’t even matter because you can’t think past how much you want to jump the bones of the person in front of you. She is dizzy; the world is spinning and he is the axis. Basically, she wants to have her wicked way with him and she can’t even handle it. And to think, how turned on she is by just the fact he’s looking at her like she’s the most precious thing in the world?
THIS IS SO UNFAIR.
“I would like to see us [X-Men] fight them [Avengers], though. I’d like us not to team up. I’d like to see us fight them and, you know, annihilate them, as we surely would.” -James McAvoy
OMGGGGG SOMEONE ACTUALLY MADE GIFS OF THIS PROMPT. McAvoy seriously just needs to get a tumblr already so he can be in the fandom as fully as he clearly desires.
oh my god yes Mcavoy is a fanboy of his own show yes
#okay a little meta about this scene#i think the wrong reading of this scene is to say that girls who like pretty boys are bad#it’s more nuanced than that#what we have here is multilayered#we have an audience and clara dealing with a new doctor and clara is the audience surrogate#clara struggles with the doctor’s change at first#and vastra assumes it’s because she is unhappy with his older appearance#but clara resents the implication that she only liked the doctor because he was attractive because he is her friend and obviously their relationship was stronger than that#and she rightfully calls vastra out on her assumptions#because clara may have been attracted to 11 but she isn’t going to abandon him just because he *looks* different#and that is something a lot of fans were accused of doing when capaldi was announced and it’s wrong to assume that the only reason someone (a woman especially) likes a male character is their looks#even if looks are a perfectly valid reason (via fallen-sparrow)
yes this, how dare Vastra think this is about appearance, if someone you loved changed their personality overnight, looks or no looks, would they still be the same person you love?, would what she loved in Eleven still be there?, note that this isn’t Christmas Invasion, she’s missed 800 years and a regeneration in one day, this episode was about summoning up the courage to go looking, to try to find the Doctor she loves in who the Doctor is now, we’ll see how that goes over the next month.
I don’t think Vastra actually thought it was about appearance. She was very much in control of the situation and knew exactly what to say to push Clara to look past the veil, to make her face the problem and her own feelings. It was a calculated decision to get Clara mad because when Clara gets mad she’s not in control and she can’t hide, not even from herself.
Clara got angry about Vastra’s supposed assumptions about who she was, and that’s what allowed her to no longer be that person. She didn’t gain insight into the Doctor, but rather into herself. She didn’t automatically start trusting the Doctor, and it took until the very end of the episode for her to choose to stay, but there is a visible change from this scene onwards where she is far more conscious of her thoughts and behaviour. And that’s what Vastra was after, and that’s what she achieved.
