But we should also remember that most people have the same kinds of feelings and wants. Everyone wants to be the hero sometimes.
"Look, I know how tough it is for you to say good-bye, so I’ll say it. Maybe you’re right. Maybe we will see each other again. But just in case we don’t… I want you to know how much you’ve meant to me. I’ll never be able to shake you." - Hawkeye Pierce

"I will not carry a gun, Frank. When I got into this war I had a very clear understanding with the Pentagon: no guns."
- What the fuck is going on here?
- How would it look if that tank was operational?
- Well, I’ll tell you what it looks like right now. It resembles an incompetent moron climbing up the asshole of his company commander by inventing a bullshit mission.
WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO ME FOR TWO FICTIONAL CHARACTERS TO KISS
WHAT WENT WRONG IN MY LIFE I DON’T UNDERSTAND
That second to last panel is chilling.
I think about this ALL THE TIME. I fucking love it.
Fandom is the most brilliant, beautiful, collaborative, critical, deeply subversive stuff there is and I ADORE IT TO PIECES.
And no, it’s not all women—certainly not, absolutely not. But I’d say it’s vast majority women. (…Ridiculous crazy vast majority anybody-except-cis-men.) I know I often think of fandom as a feminine and/or queer-centered space.
I’m reblogging for the added commentary and to add a link to a meta I recently came across. The whole thing is worth a read, but the first paragraph really resonates:
The types of fandom that are most often considered traditional and acceptable, and which are often either male-dominated or coded as masculine, tend to be acquisitive, whether in terms of knowledge (obscure trivia) or merchandise (collectibles). Whereas, by contrast, the types of fandom most often considered insincere, non-serious or “unreal”, and which are often either female-dominated or coded as feminine, tend to be creative, such as making costumes, writing fanfic and drawing fanart.
