Fosterson week!

Day 3 - Favorite location/scene/conversation/etc.

In terms of scenes, as a cheesy ridiculous romantic, I’ve gotta share the end credits scene from Thor 2. SPOILERS FOLLOW.

Okay, so as nearly over-the-top sappy it is, I loved it because they deserve it so much after all they’ve been through. And honestly, Jane is just wonderful here. She’s surrounded by friends who, from the start, haven’t wanted her to get her hopes up because they believe this man’s world will always pull him back, leaving her heartbroken. And she’s a realist, she sees that and understands it, but she’s also a woman in love, so she wants to hope. So when we see her at the end (before the credits) she’s clearly stuck between wanting to have faith in him and wanting to be rational (and not get hurt again, either).

Then he returns, and something seems to shift in her before anyone else realizes it. She knows he’s back and her heart was right, and she lights up, going to him immediately without any reservations. Though he’s just crossed realms to be with her, finally, they come together as naturally as if he just stepped in from the other room. And above all, I think you can see the openness and purity and intensity of their connection here, so I think it was a great way to finally solidify their place together.

(I was also going to go on about how I love both their reactions to each others’ worlds, the amazement there from Jane and the casual acceptance and appreciation from Thor, but I’ve said more than I thought I would about the clip, so I think I’ll leave off here.)

Fosterson Week!

Day 2 - Headcanons

I’m still relatively new to the ship, so I don’t have a lot of ideas about how they work together outside of canon moments, buuuuuuuuut I do have this thought:

Whenever Thor’s lucky enough to be on Midgard with Jane, and Jane gets upset at him for something, he goes and sits on the bumper of her van - like an unconscious remembrance of when she hit him, and more importantly, when they met. He doesn’t do it to make her feel bad, it just feels comforting to be in that place again while their current reality cools down. Like a symbol of the fact that they can get over anything, even vehicular assault.

At first, Jane might think he’s doing it on purpose to make her feel guilty, but he never says anything and eventually it makes her think of when they met, too. So those big arguments usually end with her exasperation softening to fond memories, and she joins them out there - with coffee - and they talk things through.

The Fairy Faith - (In Search of Fairies - Documentary)

A lovely early 90s documentary about fairy faith in Nova Scotia, Scotland and Ireland. I had dreams at night about fairies after watching this.

Fosterson Week!!!

Day 1 - The moment you started to ship them/why you ship them

So I must guiltily admit that I didn’t know much about Thor until the movies. I love comics, but I fell in love with this part of the Marvel Universe when the first Thor movie came out. And watching the first movie, I thought Thor and Jane were okay together, but I wasn’t hardcore shipping just yet. I liked the star-crossed romance, of course, and they were cute, but they didn’t quite pull at me like my other ships or OTP’s.

Then I saw “Thor 2.” Particularly this scene.

I think this is where it happened.

Okay, I have some thoughts. 
I haven’t been paying much attention to Wonder Woman’s upcoming live-action movie debut, after hearing the awful, awful, awful awful awful opinions that the creative team seems to have on female superheroes. 
I love Wonder Woman. To the point that I have a wonderful handmade Wonder Woman bag (from my mother-in-law and Llady) and a Wonder Woman lunch box that I take to work every day. In college, I did my final Women’s Studies project on Wonder Woman and body image. I’m still catching up on her in the comics, granted, but my devotion to her is pretty damn serious.*
So when I heard that disturbing/disgusting commentary on She-Hulk, I decided to stop paying attention. If they’re going to ruin my hero, I’d rather not be part of it.
HOWEVER, I’m pretty impressed by this image.
They did release it at Comic Con, which should have been expected, but since they did that - the right thing - I feel like maybe they are taking the seriousness of this debut to heart after all. 
And just look at her. Dayum.
No, she’s not physically stout and tall and typically Amazonian. Considering who they chose to cast, that’s an impossibility now. But everything I read before from Gal Gadot’s interviews imply that she’s taking Wonder Woman’s fierce history seriously. And she does look fierce here.
They gave us an image of her in all her earthy glory, battle-ready, in what looks like the midst of an erupting volcano. That’s pretty badass. And strongly Amazonian (at least in theme, since I don’t recall any volcanoes on Themyscira). She looks exactly like she’s not going to take any shit from anyone, which we desperately need, since she’s making her film debut in a movie about DC’s biggest superhero dudebros instead of her own film.
So yes. I am surprised and delighted and choosing to be hopeful again, at least for now.

*By the comics, I mean pre-new 52 - I’ve heard the new ones are good, but I’m very attached to her world setup as it was from her creation by Mr. William Moulton Marston until recently. So I haven’t had the heart to go there yet.
