15 Reasons Why Monica Geller Is An Unappreciated Character
1: Fed all of her friends almost every day for ten years without complaining.
2: Excelled in a traditionally masculine career, (yes, cookery as a profession is generally male-dominated) and in traditionally masculine hobbies (football), without compromising her femininity or sexuality.
3: At the same time, revelled in traditionally female interests such as babies, marriage and housework without apologizing for them, or suggesting they made her inferior or weak.
4: Overcame teenage obesity.
5: Grew up in an emotionally abusive home, with a mother who subjected her to relentless criticism and verbal mistreatment….But still emerged with a sense of her own self-worth, determination to fulfil her dreams and huge capacity to care for others.
6: Stayed friends with her brother who bullied her as a child, and contributed to said-emotionally abusive home. Didn’t blame him for her mistreatment or show resentment towards him.
7: Took former best friend – who abandoned and rejected her for a ‘high society’ life – into her home without question.
8: Prior to this, accepted a woman who had previously lived on the streets, as her roommate and welcomed her into her group of friends.
9: Went through unemployment and shitty jobs, but refused to take unfair advantages she hadn’t earned (i.e. Pete buying her a restaurant). Eventually gained a prestigious head chef position based entirely on her own merit.
10: Walked away from the man she thought was the love of her life, because she wanted children and he’d only have them to make her happy. Even though that option would have been 100 times less painful for Monica, she knew that wasn’t fair on him and refused.
11: After marrying the actual love of her life, she waited until Chandler was ready to have kids, because she knew about his fears of raising children. When they discovered virtually the only option for children was sperm donor-ship (so they’d be her kids but not his), she refused and insisted on adoption.
12: Was also the one-woman cheerleading team for the aforementioned love of her life, in telling him he could be the amazing boyfriend, husband and father that he never saw in himself. Was proved 100% right.
13: Resisted her control-freak coping mechanisms to give Chandler the power of making the big decisions about their future, (saying ‘I Love you’, moving in together, marriage), so he could work through his commitment phobia. Again, proved it was 100% worth it.
14: Encouraged her husband to quit a job he hated, then supported him – financially and emotionally –through his subsequent unemployment and helped him find his dream career.
15: Never, ever fucking gives up on anything or anyone.

things girls do that I love:
- offer their friends sips of their coffee drinks without being asked
- scratch each others back
- say things like “smell this lotion I bought this weekend”
- compliment each other’s eyebrows
- that thing when they agree with you and their eyes get really wide and they nod their head solemnly
- throw out each others gum wrappers or chip bags when they get up

the worst relationship to have w someone is the “we’re not really friends anymore but we didnt have a fight or anything we kinda just stopped talking and i have so many memories with you and i still want to be friends but we just dont have much in common and whenever we talk its awkward”
I have been thinking about Alexander Pierce a lot recently, and I figured something out. He is is a brilliant manipulator and a highly skilled tactician. Okay, that is not news, but consider this.
- The attack on Fury he sets in motion minutes to hours before it happens. For an attack that large, with that many assets and different strategies involved, it had to have been in planning for some time.
- The attack on Cap in the elevator happens in the elevator as he is leaving Pierce’s office. Cap left the office, Pierce texted Sitwell or Rumlow, and they were off and running with an attack that had clearly been thought out and planned. In fact, they had to have been waiting on the go order.
- This is the part I really love. In the end, Pierce maneuvers the World Security Council into launching Insight, and making it look like he lost, like he had been out-maneuvered and he was going to have to do this against his will. Why is this important? Think about what would have happened if Insight had succeeded. Millions of people would have been dead before some power managed to blast them out of the sky. Who would have been left holding the bag? The Council members. Pierce was on record as not wanting to launch it, as being the last voice of reason before the Council members (now war criminals) took action. Heck, even those little badges he gives them that are deadly burn-through-your-sternum things were probably there so that when everything went “bad”, he could arrest them. He would have been left the hero (ready to decline another Peace Prize) and they would have been criminals.
The man is brilliant.
