Fangirl challenge → [6/10] female characters: Olivia Dunham (Fringe)
"I understand that you think I acted too emotionally. Putting aside the fact that men always say that about women they work with, I’ll get straight to the point: I am emotional. I do bring it into my work. It’s what motivates me. It’s what helps me get into the headspace of our victims, see what they’ve seen, even if I don’t want to, even if it horrifies me. And I think it makes me a better agent. If you have a problem with that, I’m sorry. You can fire me. But I hope you don’t."
I’ve seen what the two of us together looks like. And it’s beautiful.

# Olivia Dunham - Fringe -
"She’s always trying to make up for something. Right some imaginary wrong.
Haunted, I guess.”
“She’s very, very stubborn. She doesn’t like to lose. But she sees the best in people, even when they don’t see it themselves.”
"She gave me a purpose: She taught me to believe in something bigger than myself. She taught me to fight to keep our world safe"
"She gave me a place to call home.A place I’d want to call home"
"There was no one like her." - Peter Bishop
They’re definitely in the Fringe unit on the Other Side, so tragedy could strike. But they’re both pretty skilled, and I think the two of them complete each other in such a way that only makes them strong. So I think they’re pretty badass over there. ~ Seth Gabel
I wish you could see yourself the way I see you. You have no idea how how extraordinary you are. If you would embrace that, there is no end to what you can do.
- So is Agent Dunham, like, your girlfriend?
- No, she’s like a friend who’s a girl. And who carries a gun.
