remember that time when maria hill avoided being shot by the greatest marksman in the world???
because i sure as fuck do
This scene actually incited a very elaborate debate between roommate and I immediately following the movie (aka, sitting on our back porch at 3 am refusing to sleep even though we both had work in like 2 hours). He was slightly irked by the fact that Hawkeye “missed too much”.
My thought was that the only time he missed—with Maria Hill, and shooting Fury in the chest and not the head and not double-tapping him as they walked past—was because he was fighting back against Loki’s control, in his own small way. Once he was out of Loki’s control, he doesn’t miss at all, ever. Not once.
Roomie wasn’t entirely convinced by this, since Hawkeye makes some ridiculous shots when under Loki’s control, like letting the air-intake engines on the helicarrier take the arrow to the exact point he wanted to cripple the engines. I still stick with my theory, since these were shots he was taking directly against his coworkers, while shots like the hellicarrier weren’t directly injuring anyone, and so the mental dissonance wouldn’t be high enough to fight against Loki’s control.

Did you know that I haven’t had peanut butter in a decade because she has an allergy? I mean, it wasn’t all bad. She was the only person I could watch Dance Moms marathons with because she only talks through commercials. And every year for my birthday she does these little scavenger hunts. Oh, and last year when my gam-gam died, she was the only person who could make me laugh.
