rennish:

so the other day my girlfriend and i were at a thrift store looking at the books, and we found a copy of the princess by tennyson from around 1900 for like 2 dollars 

image

nice, right? 

here is the inscription on the front 

image

so “unknown yet known” is a misquote of a bible verse (2 corinthians 6:9) which goes like “known yet regarded as unknown” and that whole bit is about like, keeping love in your heart despite hardship, which. ok. (also i’m not saying but i’m just saying do you like know her KNOW her in the biblical sense or does helen WANT TO but they haven’t yet??? ok i’m totally saying that’s what it means.) 

now i don’t want to just yell GAY out of nowhere, but like, your unknown yet known friend? ladies? giving each other books with ambiguously gay dedications about love in the face of trials and suffering in the front? 

so what’s this princess thing even about? wikipedia says: 

The poem tells the story of an heroic princess who forswears the world of men and founds a women’s university where men are forbidden to enter.

dang. 

okay, so let’s look at what passages in this book are underlined. (and we can’t tell who did the underlining, helen or emma. the inscription on the front is in pen, but the underlinings are in pencil, so who the fuck knows) 

Two heads in council, two beside the hearth,
Two in the tangled business of the world,
Two in the liberal offices of life,
Two plummets dropt for one to sound the abyss

um

O hard, when love and duty clash!

uM

'Alone,' I said, 'from earlier than I know,
Immersed in rich foreshadowings of the world,
I loved the woman: he, that doth not, lives
A drowning life, besotted in sweet self,
Or pines in sad experience worse than death,
Or keeps his winged affections clipt with crime:
Yet was there one through whom I loved her, one
Not learnèd, save in gracious household ways,
Not perfect, nay, but full of tender wants,
No Angel, but a dearer being, all dipt In
Angel instincts, breathing Paradise,
Interpreter between the Gods and men,
Who looked all native to her place, and yet
On tiptoe seemed to touch upon a sphere
Too gross to tread, and all male minds perforce
Swayed to her from their orbits as they moved,
And girdled her with music. Happy he
With such a mother! faith in womankind
Beats with his blood, and trust in all things high
Comes easy to him, and though he trip and fall
He shall not blind his soul with clay.’

UM!!

Indeed I love: the new day comes, the light
Dearer for night, as dearer thou for faults
Lived over: lift thine eyes; my doubts are dead. 

UMMMMM!!!!

wow so in conclusion kate and i found a gay ladies book from the past and i’m really overwhelmed with emotions about it????

Regina being concerned about Emma… I just need a moment tbh

I think especially Mary Margaret (deep down, perhaps, but still) knows Regina is in love with Emma. Seeing as she hasn’t seen that level of love returned in Emma, I’m quite sure that look basically said: ‘careful, Regina; please don’t set yourself up to be hurt again’… Hook is basically thinking ‘what the hell, m’lady, don’t start becoming competition!’

Imagine if Snow is the one telling Regina to open her eyes and heart to Emma. Maybe Snow is a SQ shipper. (I would probably die)

that would actually be the most hilarious thing ever… like… the robin stuff blows up and at the end Regina is all “this is all your fault snow white! I took a chance like you said!”

and Snow is all “Robin? I was TALKING ABOUT EMMA OMG NOT HIM YOU SAID HE SMELLED LIKE FOREST!!!!”“”“

agentvictoriahand asked: oh god victoria using chinese endearments on melinda is so important to me that was such a lovely addition bless you

oh no thank YOU for your amazing Victoria/Melinda fic/headcanons. They give me life. <3 

And now I’m completely stuck on them. Like, an AoS equestrian AU is forming in my brain, and that’s the sign that I’m in it for the long haul. (see: Bering and Wells equestrian nightmare)

…what if, only in private, Melinda affectionately calls Victoria: “Wo de xiao-gui.” Reference

oh no

Can you see it?
The worst is over
The monsters in my head are scared of love
Fallen people listen up!
It’s never too late to change our luck

So, don’t let them steal your light
Don’t let them break your stride
There is light on the other side
And you’ll see all the raindrops falling behind
It’s a revolution
Make it out tonight
It’s a revolution

Anonymous asked: so a while ago you wrote a prompt that was victoria hand + melinda may, and i was wondering, if you had time, if you could do like that but melinda may + victoria hand instead, so like reversed? love your writing btw

agentvictoriahand:

oh you mean like, history-wise?

yeah sure let’s do that

and thanks so much btw ;w;

okay.

so.

Melinda May meets Victoria Hand on an op that went south for SHIELD. Melinda’s mother sends her daughter to bust out the SHIELD agents because she wants Fury to owe her a favor. 

Victoria thinks that the short, powerful agent who gets her out of a hostage situation, the two of them working in tandem to make sure both of them get out of the line of fire is a dude and is sorely disappointed until Melinda pulls the classic “helmet hair reveal,” showing off her gorgeous hair and beautiful eyes. Victoria is instantly smitten. The same goes for Melinda, but she’s much less obvious about it.

Why we need to start a #SaveVictoriaHand campaign.

In the screencaps Agent Victoria Hand is killed for shock value and to reveal Agent Grant Ward’s duplicity that he was HYDRA all along.  Its a slight twist on killing a female character for manpain but her death is still a plot point in Ward’s narrative. They didn’t even give her a decent fight scene. He just empties a clip into her and sits down and mopes.

But here are the reasons why we need to start a campaign:

  • Let me start off by mentioning that it’d be shame if she never came back and you never found out she was a canonically lesbian character. She even had a girlfriend in the comic books.
  • (Not to mention there are  no canon queer couples in the MCU yet).  As much as I ship Skimmons that’s all subtext.
  • It would probably help with the ratings if she did come back.
  • And hopefully help take down Garrett, she needs revenge damnit. Why does no one know she’s dead???????
  • We need some LGBTQIA+ representation
  • If they can resurrect Coulson and Fury can fake his own death, why not?

There was literally too much wasted potential in Agent Victoria Hand’s character to not try doing this.  I’m going to start tweeting about it come Tuesday after 12pm pacific time and hopefully if this gets enough signal boosting we’ll see it trending by Tuesday evening. Remember to use the hashtag #SaveVictoriaHand and tell people why she deserves to come back!

Who is Victoria Hand?
Victoria Hand is a character created for Marvel comics by Brian Michael Bendis. In the television series Agents of SHIELD, she is a senior agent for SHIELD and the director of a SHIELD base, the Hub. 
Victoria Hand sticks to protocol, which puts her sometimes at odds with main character Agent Coulson and his team. However, Victoria is loyal to SHIELD, even after it is revealed that many agents of SHIELD are, in fact, loyal to the evil organization HYDRA.
Why do we need to save her?
In the episode entitled Turn, Turn, Turn, Victoria Hand was shot and presumably killed by Grant Ward.
The campaign to save Victoria was suggested here, and I think it’s a great idea. We brought back Coulson, so why can’t we bring back this character with so much potential?
How do we save her?
Fandomshatewomen has suggested that we go to twitter to trend the hash tag #savevictoriahand. Tweet why you enjoy her, why you want her back, why she deserves to come back. 
This character is incredibly close to my heart, and I would be touched if at least some of my followers and fellow members of the Agents of SHIELD fandom could participate in this campaign.
For more information on Victoria Hand in the comics, you might check my intro post for her.
