So, this week I fell a little bit behind in my TV watching and I only just finished the latest episode of Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD – so forgive me if I’m late to the party…but we’re totally supposed to be shipping Melinda May and Phil Coulson, right? Because I am, you guys. I am.
First of all, give me ten million flashback episodes where we see young Phil and young Melinda on missions together, and give them to me now. Second of all, give me ten million more.
I am going to be completely honest: I never saw any romantic potential between these two before this week. I’ve always felt that special bond – and it’s clear that Phil trusts her more than anyone – but come on. Did you know that they even have an amazing smushed-together ship name? Philinda. I mean, really, how am I supposed to resist that?
I’m not. They are adorable.
Then, of course, there’s this:
BECAUSE HE LIKES KANGAROOS.
But hey, it looks like I’m not the only one shipping it hard.
