    ↳ INTP (The Architect)

    INTPs are often thoroughly engaged in their own thoughts, and usually appear to others to be offbeat and unconventional. The INTP’s mind is a most active place, and their inward orientation can mean that they neglect superficial things like home décor or appropriate clothing. They don’t tend to bother with small talk but can become downright passionate when talking about science, mathematics, computers, or the larger theoretical problems of the universe. Reality is often of only passing interest to the Architect, as they are more interested in the theory behind it all.

    INTPs are typically precise in their speech, and communicate complex ideas with carefully chosen words. They insist on intellectual rigor in even the most casual of conversations, and will readily point out inconsistencies of thought or reasoning. Social niceties may fall by the wayside for an INTP who is more interested in analyzing logic, and they may offend others by submitting their dearly held values and beliefs to logical scrutiny.

  • The Princess is everything Luke wants to be. She is socially conscious, whereas he is thrown into things; intellectually, she is a strong leader, and he is just a kid.

     -

    - George Lucas

    People often talk about how Han influenced Luke, but we should also look at how Leia influenced Luke.

    (via apolla-savre)

    I’ve always really liked this idea—that they’re the exact same age, but their different lives have given them very different levels of maturity, and Luke is envious, but fascinated, and idolizes her a bit.

    (via another-skywalker)

    It’s kind of weird to think of Han as being a big influence compared to Leia.  I mean, yes, they were close.  But it’s made reasonably obvious that close male friends aren’t something Luke’s ever lacked.  If anything, I’d say they’re mutually influential.  Han’s experience and training help temper Luke’s youth and inexperience, and his cynicism demands that Luke account for his own faith. Luke, in turn, cracks Han’s shell with hope and faith, and his earnest belief that Han can be better than what he’s let himself become won’t let him crawl back into the hole he’s dug for himself.

    But Leia?

    I mean, come on.  Luke’s got these vague intentions to run away and do…something.  He’s dissatisfied with his home life, he’s dissatisfied with the future he sees for himself, and he resents, in an equally vague way, the expectations of his family.  He thinks of joining the rebellion because he’s romanticized it.   He thinks of going to the academy because it’s anywhere but where he’s at.  All of his ambitions amount to this sort of nebulous, Anything But What I Have aspiration.  He goes running after Kenobi on the strength of a shitty, recorded hologram because it seems exciting.  He has no real idea about what this sort of mission would entail, or cost, or achieve.  It’s an Adventure, and he’s bored.

    Then he meets Leia, and she’s literally everything he ever had some mindless daydream about being.  Only instead of being a cardboard cut-out hero in some story he’s using to distract himself from a shitty frontier subsistence-farmer life, she’s a real person who’s actually fucking doing it.  She’s a leader.  She’s a fighter.  She’s risking life and limb for a cause she completely and utterly understands and absolutely believes in.  This isn’t some thing she ran away to do because she got sick of being a princess and a senator.  People look up to her, and follow her, and obey her, because she’s spent her life earning it.

    He’s looking around and going “Empire bad?  We blow up ships?” and she’s going “Here’s ten political treatises on why the Empire needs to go, here are the details of troop movements and expected reinforcements and supply lines for the upcoming battle, and here are the family photos of everybody in the next ten systems that are going to get stomped into bloody paste in retaliation if we fail here.” He finds her, and within five minutes she’s gone from the princess he’s rescuing because that’s what action heroes do to the person he needs to emulate if he’s ever going to make something of himself.

Joaniarty Week → Hogwarts AU

Just to be abundantly clear on one thing: Jamie did not have a crush on Joan. If Jamie happened to show off the newest hex she learned in some obscure book she had swiped from the restricted section and Joan happened to be nearby and the Hufflepuff happened to be dragged into detention with her — then that was a pure coincidence and definitely not The Plan All Along.

  • Damn it. I have two long fics that I need to finish and edit and someone else’s fic that I need to beta (not to mention work for my actual job), but all my brain wants to do is come up with all sort of ideas for the Ruby/Anna Harry Potter fusion story and now a raceswapped Supernatural story where Mary was black and Sam and Dean are mixed.

    All very interesting but NOT HELPFUL.

    *sigh*

    I’d like to talk about how Melinda May is a legend.

    No, not The Cavalry, but Melinda May, who possesses such incredible depth of strength, and not just in the physical sense. Yes, she chose to retire from the field, and I love that because she needed that time away. Because she’s human. Because she’s not infallible. But she didn’t just hole up at home, letting fear entirely conquer her life. Even while working through her struggle, she took a job where she could still help the agency and then plucked up the courage to return to the field, the same field that nearly ruined her life, in order to keep the person she cares about safe.

    Plenty of people see Coulson as the heart of SHIELD, but when I look at Melinda May, I see heart. Beneath that badass and stoic exterior, I see selflessness, someone willing to die for this ‘greater good,’ someone who wouldn’t abandon you at the first signs or hundredth signs of trouble. Loyal. Trustworthy.

    Melinda May, who taught me that while you can’t be in control of everything in life, you can decide how you move on from a bad event. Yes, a tragedy changed her, but she made herself stronger because of it and because of the choices she made in its aftermath. What she went through in Bahrain and how she dealt with the pain brought her to that one point where she could pick the complete Berserker Staff up and let it go when the job was done. It’s what she’s trained for, what she’s done every single day. The sleepless nights, the rage, the images she faced daily, everything including what happened in Bahrain prepared her for that moment she would handle that Asguardian weapon without falling apart to protect those she cared about. She turned the obstacle meant to crush her (though it was far from being an overnight process) into a stepping stone.

    Melinda, whose life motto is probably less talk, more action, and whose actions aren’t based on motivation for glory but because she genuinely cares for the well-being of others, willing to let another take the spotlight while she stays in the background, looking out for people. 

    Melinda May, who has such an aversion to the title ‘The Cavalry.’ While the reason behind that aversion is debatable (at least, until we know more about what happened in Bahrain), we know she doesn’t need that title to boost her confidence. She doesn’t want the fame, honor, or recognition for the heroic act of single-handedly crossing off the enemy force. She did what she had to do. That was that. Her identity isn’t dependent on her abilities. (See Avengers and also, ‘Scorch’.) In this age where self-esteem is largely based on what we can do, how people reciprocate, and how many accolades we can get, I value what Melinda May represents. Someone who isn’t easily swayed to the left or right. Someone confident enough in who she is that she, as Ming Na said, doesn’t need anyone’s approval or apology. These outside factors don’t determine her choices, and they don’t diminish who she is.

    Melinda May is the epitome of loyalty, yet not a blind follower, the embodiment of strength and empathy, and a kickass role model of when circumstances knock you off your feet, you can get back up and punch it in the face.

    That is the legend of Melinda May.
