I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT THIS SILLY BOOK, YOU GUYS. And ever since I finished it I can’t stop thinking about it. And I’m like “GET OVER IT, IT’S JUST CHICK LIT”, but then all the feels come rushing back and UGH.
It’s basically about this girl, Abigail, who just broke up with her boyfriend of seven years and finds herself single for the first time in her adult life. So she starts catching up and begins to date, only to discover that she is crap at it (reading the menu out loud, making her questions sound like a job interview, etc). Luckily, she has her flatmate Robert (a bit of a manwhore, but since this IS a romance novel, he is a manwhore with a heart of gold), who kinda becomes her mentor and gives her advice about dating. This advice starts taking the shape of the following list:
Well now I have this whole head!canon where Natasha becomes super protective of Jane, and Jane is just like, “Wheeee!! Yay science! Possible scientific breakthroughs »»» my life!” and Natasha and Thor are always running after her all, “No, Jane! Driving straight into tornados is STUPID! COME BACK!” and then they fight over who does a better job of protecting her while Jane goes off with Selvig and Bruce to make more scientific discoveries. And then at the end of the day, Natasha is all, “Girls night! Deal with it, Thor!” and takes Jane, Pepper, and Darcy out, but she lets Clint come too because he knows all the good clubs, and also Natasha just thinks it’s hilarious to get him drunk and have him do karaoke (and let’s be real: Clint is totally one of the girls). And now I want this as part of Thor 2 and/or Avengers 2. But mostly I just want Natasha to be all HBIC and bffs with Jane and all, “Seriously, back off, dudes. I got this.”
