when i die, please bake my ashes into a brick and use me to hit fascists.

This is the Internet. It exists somewhere. (shudder)

In my Ultron headcanon, Coulson is on the bridge of the Theta Protocol helicarrier. At least before the Avengers board. It's not like he's a secret from Fury and Hill.

What else besides ramen can you scoop? YOU CAN SCOOP THIS WORLD FROM DARKNESS!

One thing I wonder, based on the events in "Melinda" is if May is supposed to be younger than Ming-Na Wen's age of 51. While looking to start a family at 44 isn't unheard of, it is a bit unusual. Considering Ming-Na can easily pass for someone 10+ years younger, I'm wondering if that's what they decided to do with her character.

She looks great. I remember seeing her a few years back on an episode of Eureka, I think she played a Senator who controlled Eureka's budget or something, and I remember thinking how much older they made her look on that show. I assume it was deliberate.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

Ming-Na Wen is the same age as me. I need to step up my game.

Or she's go the "kick ass at any age" genes of Melinda's Mother.

So come, my friends, be not afraid/We are so lightly here/It is in love that we are made; In love we disappear

Ming-Na Wen will probably look fresh and youthful at 80, damn it. Stunning bone structure.

"You should never say bad things about the dead, only good… Joan Crawford is dead. Good.” —Bette Davis

Ming-Na is one of those people who seems so awesome somebody must have made her up: those looks at that age, a brilliant actress who's been working in genre projects for decades with the occasional side forray into little things like The Joy Luck Club and ER, and a self-confessed geek girl.

I'd swear she was half her actual age, looking at that picture.

I've said it before, but this is such a great time to be a geek, with genre projects tearing up both the television and box office. I never understood the need of some people to try to guard the doors of geekdom. It's like, "Dude, wake up! Even if I were to accept your premise of "fake geeks", which I don't, if you were to drive them all off the popularity of super-heroes, sci-fi and fantasy will take a nose dive, and with it all the money that's paying for the creation of those shows and movies. We'll be left low-budget rip-offs directed by the likes of Uwe Boll and remakes of "Trial of the Incredible Hulk."

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

Watching the AoS finale, when Ward started explaining the gun set-up to Bobbi, I started saying "tlot-tlot, tlot-tlot". Daniel looked at me funny. So I gave him the further hint, "Bess, the landlord's black-eyed daughter." He got it after I said, "The Highwayman." Funny thing is, that old poem has been on my mind for a couple of weeks.
