Bond is Overrated

This blog is dedicated to The Avengers, focusing mostly on the relationship between John Steed and Emma Peel.

Feel free to leave an ask or submission. Enjoy!

Warren: Ohoho, you fancied your luck with Mrs. Peel, did you?

Steed: Eeh…

Steed: Well, obviously you didn’t hear us last night!

"Oh, no. I’ve definitely seen larger."

Emma Peel is not impressed with the size of your weapon.

Nothing remarkable, except an unnecessary touch. He doesn’t really NEED to be walking that close to her, but he is. Making touch #202.

I notice Emma keeps her eyes on his face the entire time here. I suspect if they were to stray any lower at all, it would be just too irresistible.

Steed: We’re looking for your brother. We thought he might have a drink with us.

Smallwood: You’re gonna third-wheel him, aren’t you?

Emma: That is a distinct possibility.

Additionally - the shoulder touch makes number 201.

[“The Forget-Me-Knot”]

(No, I didn’t watch it. I skipped through it to get to this scene. From what I saw, other than Mother’s hanging-strap set - which they sadly dismantled, not knowing the US would ask him to be a regular - the episode is Really Not Very Good, and lacks sufficient Rigg - not surprising, since she was called back on a four-day reshoot clause and the whole episode was filmed hastily in under eight.)

"Always keep your bowler on in times of stress, and watch out for diabolical masterminds."

*Bursts into tears*

Reportedly, so did Macnee after the farewell scene; he asked to be excused to his dressing room so he could go cry.

I’ll say it again: fuck this fucking episode that couldn’t even be a GOOD or SATISFYING end, but had to suck into the bargain.

NEVER FORGET THIS IMPORTANT GUIDE

Unlike SEDDI, this acronym took me no time whatsoever to figure out.

I feel I should add that the acronym originated from the X Files fandom. Credit where credit is due.

This is an almost ridiculous amount of touching, so I’m going to go through them rapid-fire. 

1. Shoulders. 
2. His arm, her chest.
3. Arms
4. Shoulders again.
5. Hands
6. Her hand, his chest.
7. Shoulders/his shoulder and her chest.

Which brings us to… 200 touches in total thus far!! My initial estimate was that the total number of touches during the series would be somewhere around 300. But, given that the count is already at 200 after having gone through less than 20 of the 51 total episodes, my new estimate for the total number of touches is between 450 and 600.

Steed is rather resistant to the whole “taking off Emma’s handcuffs.”

I’ve always imagined these silly glasses…

to be colored like this:

I’ve really no reason to think they are that color. I’ve just been mentally filling it in using a common stereotyped image. It’s alway made the glasses look even sillier to me.
