And cause I will use any opportunity to post Yelena, here she is! (and also Jughead cause when I used to watch Riverdale way back when he was my favourite character)
So many aroace characters are either depicted negatively like there is something ‘wrong’ with them, or their asexuality is erased completely. We don’t get a lot of representation at all — in the real world or in fictional ones. So, here’s a reminder to all the aroace people out there: you are valid and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Be who you are. Unapologetically. 🖤🤍💜
i just realized that because both John Walker and Yelena work for Valentina Allegra de Fontaine we'll most likely see them have scenes together in future movies, and i cannot wait for Yelena to absolutely DESTROY John Walker

You were unbelievably excited to go to Comic-Con this year. As a treat to yourself you decided to fly to San Diego from Minnesota and stay a couple of days over the convention weekend. You had just seen Black Widow a couple of months previous to the event and absolutely fell head over heels for Florence Pugh. The best part was that Florence was doing a panel at the convention this year, so you sure as hell had plans on attending that. You wanted to cosplay for the event but ended up just going with a cool Marvel themed hoodie and some joggers. You arrive at the convention center and there are hundreds of people around you, so many people dressed in such cool costumes. You look to your right and see what honestly looks like the end battle from Avengers End Game, there were that many people dressed up. Marvel, anime, Star Wars, DC, you name it! Florence’s panel starts in 25 minutes and you want to make sure you get a good seat so you head to the room that it’s taking place in.
You arrive in room 203 for the panel and find a great seat in the middle 3 rows from the front. After sitting excitedly waiting for what felt like an eternity, Florence finally comes on stage. She walks out in black leggings with a tight grey shit on and an oversized letterman jacket over top. Her hair was perfect as usual and her smile absolutely lit up the room.
“Hello everyone! You all look so wonderful” she says in her beautiful British accent.
“I hope everyone’s doing well today! I’m so excited to do this panel and hopefully answer some of your questions along the way!” She says.
After about 35 minutes or so listening to Florence talk about her experience filming Black Widow and other movies the host finally asked if the audience had any questions. Although you are a fairly anxious person you knew you would kick yourself if you didn’t at least try to talk to her. So you raise your hand high in the air and get selected to ask a question…after the four people that were chosen first go. You started to get really nervous because what were you going to say? You didn’t think you’d actually get chosen out of this huge crowd, luckily the other people that were going before you gave you time to think.
You noticed Flo was finishing up her answer to the person in front of you so it was time to just really quickly say something, anything.
“Okay, next person please stand up.” The host stated.
You stand up and notice Florence scanning the audience to try to find the next person who is going to ask a question. As soon as she spots you this absolutely adorable smile spreads across her face from ear to ear.
“Hello, what's your name darling?” You hear her say.
Some man came up to you and shoves a microphone in your face.
“Uh h-hi! My name is y/n.” You managed to just get that out. Time to stop with the stuttering and just talk to her like she’s a normal person.
“Hi y/n! I really like your sweater, it's pretty cool.” She says, still holding her smile.
“Aha thanks! I like your jacket.” You respond.
A cute smile but almost smirk crosses her face when you say that.
“I was just wondering what surprised you the most when filming Black Widow?” You ask.
“Ah gosh, there are honestly so many things that surprised me. I feel like one of the most shocking things was when I found out that all the superhero landings that everyone does would actually shatter them if they had actually done that in real life. It’s just not something you expect to hear I guess because you’re watching these brilliant films and all of these absolutely badass women and men beat up bad guys, you just don’t think about that. That was for sure shocking but also one of my favourite moments because it created the “poser” joke in the movie.” She replied.
You look at her and grin while also feeling butterflies in your stomach as she maintains eye contact with you.
“Thanks so much, Florence.” You say to her as you take your seat.
Wow. You can’t believe you just talked to Florence. Pugh. That was so amazing and although it was nerve-racking, I’m the end you’re so happy you went through with it.
The rest of the panel was amazing, so many fans asked so many great questions. Unfortunately like all good things, it had to come to an end. You all waved to Flo as she made her exit and that was your cue to get up and leave too. You walked around the convention for another couple of hours until you started to feel tired and a little jet-lagged so you decided to go back to your hotel for a quick nap. You stayed at a nice hotel just around the corner from the convention centre so you had quick and easy access to return whenever you wanted.
You finally arrive at the hotel and cannot wait to relax. You’re in the elevator and punch level 12 to start heading up to your room. All of a sudden you hear someone say
“Wait! Please hold the door!”
You quickly press the open door button and when you look up you lock eyes with the most gorgeous person you’ve ever seen, for the second time today in fact.
“Thank you so much,” Florence says to you.
“No problem.” You respond with the most wide-eyed look on your face.
“Hey, you were at the panel today right? You asked the question about the most shocking thing I discovered on Black Widow?”
“Uhhh….y/n right?” She says.
Holy crap she remembered who you are but not just that, she remembered your name too?!
“Yeah! That’s me. It was really great attending your panel today, I had a lot of fun. I have to say I can’t believe you remembered me aha. Must’ve been the hoodie right?” You respond.
“Yeah, I freakin love doing these things and meeting all the fans. It’s always such a great experience. And of course, I remember you! It actually wasn’t the hoodie, while it is a really cool hoodie it’s actually your smile I remembered.” She responds while looking off at her feet a little.
Your eyes widen and you can feel your cheeks blushing. You felt like you were at a loss for words honestly. How do you respond to Florence Pugh telling you that she remembered your smile?
Lucky for you, the elevator binged at her floor and she went to step off.
“Hey, it was nice meeting you y/n.” She says with a small smile.
“You to Florence. Have a nice night.” You say.
She steps off the elevator and the doors close behind her. You let your back hit the wall in the elevator behind you and let out a deep breath in an “oh my god I can’t believe that just happened” kind of way.
As soon as you feel almost relieved that you aren’t embarrassing yourself in front of this woman again the doors open again. You look up and she’s standing there right in front of you.
“Hey, I know this is a little odd but I don’t have any more commitments tonight and frankly I’m kind of lonely in my hotel room. Did you want to come and maybe share a bottle of wine with me or something? It’s totally cool if you have plans.” She says looking at you with her deep beautiful eyes.
“Yeah sure, I’m down.” You say as relaxed and chill as you possibly could.
You step off the elevator and follow the blonde towards her room.
