Sara Blue
hey arrow writers, here are some off the top of my head alternatives to killing sara for the sake of laurel’s story


  • have sara remain the black canary and laurel continue to fight the good fight from the right side of the law, prosecuting the criminals team arrow bring down and eventually taking over control of the city from its corrupt leaders (because vigilantism? not a long term solution!)
  • two motherfucking black canaries! how would that be a bad thing?
  • sara asking her sister to take on the mantle of the black canary for her, so she can take the time away she needs to heal from the murder and violence that she (explicitly!) said was killing her inside last year (yeah i’m apparently still pissed about the sara-happily-goes-back-to-the-league-of-assassins-i-mean-wtf? after all)

I was so stoked about superhero TV week this week and then it went out on this note. Why can’t we have nice things, TV?

i do not have to choose between beauty and bravery.

there is no correlation between my bust line 

and the size of my heart.

i am both a woman and a soldier,

with all the more strength because of it.

Endless list of favorite characters → Captain Ray Holt, Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Fitz said he could engineer cloaking, but…I’m afraid he can’t do anything. The damage to his temporal lobe was too extensive. He’s not the same and since Simmons left, he’s only getting worse. Simmons said she thought he’d be better without her here, but her leaving just broke him. In the months since, he’s grown isolated, talking to himself more and more. We have to fight on for him, for those we’ve lost.

Peggy, Always Peggy.

The Howling Commandos with Captain Rogers & Agent Carter.

all the things we should’ve said that I never said
all the things we should’ve done but we never did

Chris Markus: We always wanted to approach Sam through the prism of a being fellow veteran. Someone who could speak to Steve on that level as opposed to, you know, because he’s Captain America. And also we brought up the idea that Steve, in addition to everything else he’s gone through, spent four years in World War II. That’s very traumatic stuff. And he has never had a chance to decompress about any of it. 

Anthony Russo: One of my favorite lines from him is, where he says: “I’m more of a soldier than a spy.” I just loved that so much because it speaks to his relationship with Cap and their nature.

Joe Russo: You guys did a great job with this scene. This is probably the hardest scene in the movie because it leads to the biggest buy in the film, which is - well, maybe there’s a couple of other big buys - that Cap is gonna go back to a guy he met jogging on the Mall when his life is in danger because he’s the only guy he can trust. So it was important that these two connect on a very deep level, an emotional level in this scene.

Chris Markus: It’s always a credit to Mackie.

Steve McFeely: Yeah. I trust Mackie.

Chris Markus: You would go to Anthony Mackie. Some people you wouldn’t go to. 

Joe Russo: Let’s talk about Mackie for a second. It’s a reason we cast him is one, you know, I’ve never not seen a truthful moment from him on screen, and two, he has this incredible ability to combine charm and integrity. A difficult thing to do is to be funny and convey integrity at the same time.

Steve McFeely: He’s not shallow.

Joe Russo: He has great depth as an actor which allows Steve to feel the depth, the audience to feel the depth, which makes you believe that Steve would trust this guy even though their relationship is so new.
