Don't Mess with Madam President: A Laura Roslin HBIC Picspam  
This is my bsg_epics holiday exchange gift for sira01, who requested Laura Roslin and 'badassness.' IMO Laura is at her most badass self when she is shutting down coup d'etats with a "bitch plz," remaining defiant and in charge despite the odds! ;) I hope you like this little picspam of my favorite two HBIC!Laura moments. Spoilers for seasons 1 and 4:

1x13: Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part 2

Adama: I'm going to have to ask you for your resignation, Madam President.
Roslin: No.
Adama: Then I'm terminating your presidency, as of this moment.
Roslin: Commander Adama, I will exercise the authority of this office until I am unable to do so, so if you want to stage a coup, you're gonna have to come over here and arrest me.
Adama: I don't want any blood shed.
Roslin: Of course you don't, neither do I. Neither does the press. They're here, by the way.
Adama: [mutters to Tigh] The press...
Roslin: They're recording every minute.

4x14: Blood on the Scales

Zarek: This is Tom Zarek, President of the Twelve Colonies. It's over, Laura. Saul Tigh was killed attempting to escape. Bill Adama was tried and found guilty of his crimes. A firing squad executed him this morning. It's done, Laura. You want to think about the people of this fleet now, and surrender.
Roslin: No. Not now. Not ever. Do you hear me? I will use every cannon, every bomb, every bullet, every weapon I have down to my own eyeteeth to end you. I swear it! I'm coming for all of you!

Man, nobody does badass over the intercom like Laura Roslin...:p

Lol IKR?! So fierce it hurts, her ultimate HBIC moment for me! :D And yep, Zarek clearly didn't fully realize who he was dealing with, even after all this time...asking the HBIC to surrender? Pah! :p

Soooooo sooooo soooooo good!

I can't tell you how much I LOVE and ADORE this picspam.
These are two of my favourite Laura moments ever.

Her 'I'm coming for all of you' is epic and the best moment of the whole series. Not that I'm biased or something.

Anyway, I couldn't have asked for a better gift. Thank you sooo sooo much for this. I love it.:D

Aww, I'm so glad that you liked it! :D Especially since graphics are not my strong point Heh, "I'm coming for all of you" is certainly the best Laura moment for me--she is so badass there it hurts! ;)

The sudden close-up makes this moment that much more lol-arious...

Awesome! She was so fierce! Not perfect, but completely badass!

Thanks, bb! And yep, she is definitely flawed, as they all are (that's what makes them wonderful, human characters!), but still the fiercest.
