HBO War Meme | One Show: Band of Brothers"Men, it’s been a long war, it’s been a tough war. You have fought bravely, proudly for your country. You’re a special group. You’ve found in one another a bond that exists only in combat among brothers. You’ve shared foxholes and held each other in dire moments. You’ve seen death and suffered together. I’m proud to have served with each and every one of you. You all deserve long and happy lives in peace."
The Avengers All Female AUWhen Loki steals the Tesseract, Director Victoria Hand is forced to put together a group of would be superheroes to save the world:Peggy Carter, legendary super soldier, frozen for the past seventy years. Pepper Potts, full-time CEO and part-time armoured superhero. Dr. Maya Hansen, who injected herself with an experimental technovirus and became a living bomb. Sif, the Asgardian goddess of war and self-proclaimed protector of Earth. Master assassins Melinda May and Natasha Romanoff, and their handler, Maria Hill.
It’s like in the great stories. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.”
