skyfall appreciation post: eve moneypenny
reblogging this bc i’m sick of her not getting any attention eve tho she has more screentime and chemistry with 007 than Q ever did
I really think Ninja Assassin was an underrated movie! Two of my favorite actors/actresses should have gotten more love then what the critics give them credit for.
I reblog this delicious duo every chance I get.
These two should have had a 250 page spread in some kind of magazine to promote this damn film.
James Bond x Eve Moneypenny | Skyfall AU
She knows that it isn’t his fault. This is what is required - being separated, having to be on different sides of the world when she would rather be beneath him, whispering about nothing against his throat, scratching at his silver-peppered scruff.
Still, she can be irrational - affectionately frustrated, really - knowing that she will spend two weeks alone.
“Yes. Of course I’m missing you,” he says. “I went into the city just to use the phonebox. Just to tell you.”
Her nose flares. “Well, that doesn’t make me feel any better. If that’s what you were intending.”
“Oh no. I want you to feel as awful as I do,” he says, and there’s a snooty tone in his voice.
She can’t help but smile. “I want you here.”
“Well, that can’t happen,” he says with a huff.
She lays back, sinking down into the couch with a moan. “What time is it there?”
“Morning,” he says simply. “Come to me.”
“Come to me,” he repeats himself. “I’m working - yes, yes, I know - but we’ve had plans for months now and - I was looking forward to that time.”
She swallows, because she knows that they shouldn’t.
“Come to me, Miss Moneypenny. I want you here.”
She recognizes the warmth in her tummy and the strain of her fingers. She’d spent three nights grasping at her pillows and sheets, trying to milk out the frustration, the loneliness, the heat. The thought of him kissing under her ear, pressing his weight between her legs -
“Okay,” she sighs, as if it would be troublesome to do so.
He only laughs, because he must know her feelings exactly.
Naomie Harris as Artemis:
In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis (Greek: (nominative) Ἄρτεμις, (genitive) Ἀρτέμιδος) was often described as the daughter of Zeusand Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her. In later Hellenistic times, she even assumed the ancient role of Eileithyia in aiding childbirth. - Wikipedia
Every time I see this picture, I just want the two of them to turn to each other while the cameras are flashing and start kissing passionately. Then everyone starts throwing rose petals, as Rain’s suit becomes a navy European cut Armani, and Naomie’s outfit magically morphs into a Monique Lhuillier wedding gown, while they feed each other wedding cake made of dark chocolate, chocolate orange ganache and orange butter cream frosting. <3
And yes. I’ve uploaded a cake:
