piginpetticoats replied to your post: i legitimately think my least favorite thing about…

what got you to break up with young justice?

pretty much everything about season two but lbr

i have been reading superhero comics my whole life

as soon as FIVE YEARS LATER appeared i was out

[insert endless rant about the ubiquitous lazy usage of time skips in superhero comics in order to quickly put characters and relationships in situations and positions that haven’t been narratively earned while simultaneously totally emotionally disconnecting the audience from self-same characters because it’s never that nothing important happened in the lapsed time it’s that they didn’t think that was a SHOCKING! or DARK! or EDGY! enough story to tell and easier to just jump into the future and do whatever without justification instead of actually, you know, telling a story]

piginpetticoats replied to your post: I know this may come as a shock but…

this entire discussion is making me flash back to parts of merlin fandom who could not handle a woc being cast as guinevere, but were totally cool with the dragon in the basement

Not part of the Merlin fandom, but it reminds me of what happened with the Tangled fandom when the movie came out. Claimed there were no POC in a fictional Europe but has no problem with magical hair.

top 5 favorite tropes

  1. the body as the weapon of the soul / self-weaponized people / fucking like the revolution depends on it
  2. bitter knife-sharp venom women too dangerous to touch (but who you want to)
  3. MOIRAILS GENERALLY, sexy moirails, shadow moirails, moirails in conversation with other relationships (friend/lover/moirail triangles), MOIRAILS!!!
  4. FIGUREHEAD PROBLEMS / self-chosen martyrs / people who embody communities or ideals (see: self-weaponized people)
  5. brothers and brotherly relationships (see: moirails)

piginpetticoats asked:

who's your favorite Lois Lane actress? I just got curious all of a sudden and I don't think I've ever seen you say which one :)

Saying “all of them” would be cheating, wouldn’t it? Oh well. My top three Lois Lane actresses (roughly in this order are):

  1. Erica Durance (Smallville)
  2. Dana Delany (Superman: The Animated Series)
  3. Margot Kidder (Superman)

Before I do all the replies to my OUAT postings

I just really wanted to say thank you to everyone who talked to me today, had a conversation, just were chatty and nice today.

I wasn’t going to say anything but I think this is important to get out.

Today is the anniversary of my dad’s death. It’s a REALLY difficult day for me, even 11 years later. I didn’t sleep last night and usually on the anniversary, I spend the day curled up in bed or I get myself so messed out my head, so I don’t have to deal with the pain. 

I know none of you knew this going in but talking to you, just watching the show, bonding, it helped me forget about things for most of the day. It was one of the better anniversaries of this day I’ve had. I couldn’t have done it without you all.

None of you knew but just being nice to me today was enough to keep me from doing something self-destructive. That is a big deal to me. 

Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough. 

piginpetticoats replied to your post: allofthefeelings answered your question: …

THIS IS A REALLY DEPRESSING THOUGHT rly tho why isnt there peter/carol. and peter/carol/steve. and basically just carol and peter hanging out flying planes. OR PETER PARKER JESSICA JONES BACKSTORY that would be amazing

I don’t know! I want more of that! I absolutely want the Peter/Carol/Steve threesome of awkward hotness. And Peter/Carol and Peter/Steve being all nerdy in their different ways. I WANT THE FOLLOW UP TO AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #5 ABOUT STEVE AND PETER’S COMIC. And yes, Jessica Jones and Peter and high school shenanigans!

piginpetticoats asked:

asha greyjoy?

for u and an anon, hello anon!

  1. Do you love/hate/don’t feel strongly about this character? i LOVE asha greyjoy in a way i don’t really get to talk about ever and i think should be talked about more?  she’s george’s thesis on feminine power in masculine spaces as opposed to the default of masculine power being used by feminine characters and how it’s predicated on the acceptance/support of the patriarchy itself— ‘kraken’s daughter’ asha, ‘wayward bride’ asha, ‘king’s prize’ asha, always-defined-by-the-men-in-her-life asha, who is even thus never anything more or less than herself, and the power that comes with that.
  2. What’s your favorite trait of this character? how much she truly is loyal to and loves the ways of the ironborn, despite the place she was born into amongst them and their place among the larger westerosi culture. 
  3. What’s your favorite moment/even involving this character? i love that she fails at the queensmoot?  that despite being the truest and most qualified ironborn heir they’re still too set in the old ways to accept her, and that it triggers for her a journey to take it from them (because, ultimately, in westeros, no one is ever going to give you anything the way you want, particularly power, qv robb stark) and earn it on her terms rather than theirs (and her terms are just.  a more feminist version of theirs.)
  4. If you could have one power/attribute/etc. of this character, what would it be? YO I WANT TO COMMAND A BOAT
  5. Have you ever pictured this character naked? only in the service of reading sex scenes
  6. When did you fall in love/hate with this character? I you don’t have any strong feelings toward them, why not? didn’t everyone fall in love with her at the reveal in theon ii, like
  7. Who’s your OTP for this character? nobody.  someone unimportant.  she’s going to give the seastone chair to her bastard daughters.

piginpetticoats asked you:
have you liked elena’s arc? I mean I know there’s all the grossness with the sire bond and her lack of free will/ability to consent but have you been able to appreciate her progression?

Here’s the thing. My favorite types of stories are where you take this cute thing with all the love and compassion in the world and break them. Into tiny pieces. Shatter them. Take everything they hold dear and burn to ash. And then I want my baby to fight back. With every single weapon that they’ve got.

piginpetticoats replied to your post: men in my women’s studies class saying that women…

w h a t

my prof made me argue with them and i called them out on the fact that the reason that these women do what they do is that their behavior makes dudes like them uncomfortable and the dude was like “no i’m not saying that naked women carrying pictures of vaginas make me uncomfortable, i’m not uncomfortable when i see vaginas” and i was just like “yeah except when you’re seeing them in a situation where they aren’t being used for the sexual gratification of men, and then you think there’s something inherently degrading about them”

but he just kept arguing with me about it so i peaced out
