and so our love’s not a simple thing
nor our truths unwavering
but like the moon’s pull on the tide
our fingers touch, our hearts collide
i’ll be a moonsbreath by your side.
i’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who i am. i just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and i’m grateful for that. whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, i’m sending you love. you’re my friend to the end.
— her (2013)
today I saw a preteen girl pick up Mean Girls at Target and ask her friend what it was. She didn’t even know. She said it sounded dumb. The people are forgetting. The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air. Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it.

SHOCKER: Maybe Melinda May does not know about Ward’s past. And GASP she was not out to abuse him in the finale. I see no one caring that he gave her as many hits as she gave him and no one concerned that she held the Berserker staff a second time, which furthers a persons darkest memories. No one concerned that May is equally, if not more tortured with her issues and traumas. Give her a chance and stop vilifying her.
I personally want May to find out about Ward’s past abuse and I want her to feel very, very conflicted. I want her to feel guilty. Because you know what? That would make her more human to the audience.
And I REALLY would like for some of her fans to stop making her out to be some badass hero. She’s not. She’s a broken woman who needs healing. She the female equivalent of Grant Ward on this show.
Until May fractured Ward’s larynx and took away his voice I could’ve agreed with you but she went too far…
Yeah you’re right, she went to far. But have you forgotten that ward killed thomas nash, killed agent hand, killed agent koenig, kidnapped skye, and nearly killed fitzsimmons. Yeah she might have went to far, but she’s not the only one.
I am not denying Grant Ward did horrific things and will have to atone for his actions.
However, I feel that Melinda May’s assault on him was very personal, in terms of her fracturing his larynx and literally taking away his voice and his chance to speak for himself. Surely that’s not right either. May is broken, but two wrongs don’t make a right…Both she and Ward need support..
I don’t hate Melinda May and I’m sorry if my comments suggested that….
May is a broken woman AND a badass hero. She strong, whaterver she’s been through. We can’t certanly say so of Ward.
Plus, that scene was to please the audience and make someone laugh, just like some Fast & Furious scene. I love both Ward and May, plese stop analyze every single little detail!
A fair point indeed x
I like that last point. Because she CAN be all of those things. She’s broken, she’s healing, she’s badass, she’s awesome. She’s what she needs to be to get the job done, and she’s what she needs to be to survive the day. I adore Melinda May.
Fracturing his larynx was going too far? He was trying to cut her skull open with a buzz saw. I don’t know about you, if you’re into that or what, but if someone tried to split my head open, I wouldn’t give two fucks about his or her painful childhood.
I would break your larynx, cut your balls off with that same buzz saw, and let you bleed the fuck out till you were undoubtedly dead.
But that’s just me.
It’s not just you.
But look, Ward Stans shitting on a woman of color for defending herself in a fair fight against a Nazi who tried to kill her and all of her friends, how original.
Fuck this fandom, seriously.
May’s assault on Ward was personal? And Ward manipulating the whole team into trusting a Nazi, manipulating May into having sex with him and then trying to cut her head off is not personal? Threatening Skye with rape minutes earlier, which May probably heard, is not personal? FUCK OFF. Taking away his voice? Ward has had plenty of chances to speak for himself if he wanted help and he didn’t take them, he chose to become a Nazi murderer. And you know what? Nazi murderers don’t deserve to have their voices heard (another one of my super polemic opinions about Nazis, I know). Should Melinda May, agent of SHIELD, have let a Nazi cut her skull open because he had a hard childhood? Fuck that.
Ward doesn’t need support. He needs to pay for what he has done, he needs to face the consequences of being a Nazi murderer and would-be rapist, he has to face the consequences for once in his fucking life. i don’t care what happens to him afterwards because to be honest I don’t care about the emotional development of a Nazi, as long as he stays in a dark room for a fucking long time, where he cannot hurt May and Skye or anyone else anymore.
Seriously, fuck this racist, misogynistic bullshit.
It’s wonderful to see Ward Apologists pretending they give a single fuck about anyone who’s not Grant Ward. Seriously, brings a tear to my fucking eye.
May physically hurting your precious Dreamboat Hitler Youth doesn’t mean she’s broken, for fuck’s sake. That’s so ridiculous I can’t even begin to understand the logic behind it. Stop saying that as I way to pretend you don’t hate her living guts because she kicked Ward’s whiny ass like a fucking pro.
May went through a really painful experience we know little about and she still came out on top. Yes, she’s damaged, and yes, she’s still healing, but you know what? She didn’t become a serial murderer Neo Nazi spy, so I say she’s doing pretty fucking good.
I’m not even a huge May fan, but my blood boils every time I come across shit like this. Seriously May fans, where the hell are you and why aren’t you doing anything drastic about Ward Apologists and their insistence on shitting on Melinda May?
God damn it, this fucking disgusting fandom.
Bolding for the goddamn TRUTH.
I really feel as if AOS has made the MCU fandom unbearable. Before there were bad apples, but everyone still got along and respected one another’s opinions. Now, if you disagree it’s like getting eaten alive by a pack of rabid wolves. For example: SkyeWard shippers and Grant Ward haters.

I feel like that’s a legitimate argument, because Grant Ward “haters” biggest argument is that an abuser, and a liar. He’s not a sob story, if you defend Grant Ward and think Skye and him should be together, you are supporting an abusive relationship. One that Skye did not pursue because of said reasons , and by shipping them and defending Ward you are negating Skye’s consent as a character in her storyline and supportive of a character that could quite possibly hurt her.
This. I find it very telling that Ward defenders conveniently forget Skye’s role in their relationship… one she has personally rejected. But that doesn’t stop the shippers.
