Maura with her hands in her pockets appreciation post
#this is so fucking sexy #mainly because it doesn’t seem to quite suit her character #like how she was raised #this poise and class #i wasn’t raised like that and even my grandmother used to tell me ladies didn’t put their hands in their pockets #so in my mind this is a very tomboy-ish act #and someone as ultra feminine as Maura well #it’s just so FUCKING hot! #maura isles (via drtessarosetorres)
what if femme is a form of drag for maura?, in some respects she’s stereotypically masculine, her adherence to science/logic, her field of study and work, her ‘queen of the dead’ persona, her mother obviously raised her to be very feminine, what if she wasn’t always?, what if she was a little tomboy as a child, and developed a high-femme persona later on, either to appease her parents, or to be able to move around as a part of high society, or as a counter to the masculine stereotype of her profession?, what if she found heels and dresses opened more doors for her than suits?, but the little things like putting her hands in her pockets and her more masculine wristwatch, never went away and were her quiet rebellion (via ressick)

"It’s girly humor— we’re very touchy-feely," says Alexander. "We’ll make a joke or something, and I’ll just slap her boob."
