Julius von Klever (Russian, 1850 -1924)
"Father, do you not see the King of the Alder Trees?
The King with his crown and tail?”
“My dear son, it is just a streak of mist.”
- Goethe (excerpt, my translation), 1782

I’m here to offer you a choice, and a simple one at that. Either swear unwavering loyalty to Hydra right now for all time… or share Fury’s fate.
That little nod, though, is such an absolutely lovely detail - how Jemma knows in this moment that she doesn’t need to be saying ‘No, please don’t agree to join HYDRA’ and that she should instead be saying ‘Yes, go ahead and do the thing; I know what you need me to do and I’m in’, how she knows that Triplett isn’t (would never be) considering saying yes to Hand and trusts him to be loyal to SHIELD and to still have her back when he chooses SHIELD (chooses death).
Everything that happens later with Simmons telling Coulson that she saw Triplett willing to die for SHIELD - it starts with that nod. She believes in him first.
Dear last section of seminar paper,
Please, just write yourself. Really. I’m only going to state the blindingly obvious anyway. Thanks.
Right, that’s it, I’ve written 3,000 words today (for a total of 7,000 words, which is kind of 1,000 more than I need) and all I have to do is a conclusion but I can’t think straight right now, so now = gin, tomorrow = tighten it up and write a conclusion.
