besides race, body size, sexuality, nationality, etc, what is a princess you would like to see?

i’d love to see a princess who is a thief (so, doesn’t start out the movie as royalty, marries into it i guess) , with a very Aladdin-type personality. One that’s very flawed, also very verbal and doesn’t giggle at everything/isn’t overly kind and bubbly, enthusiastic, quriky/awkward cute. Imagine like a female Flynn/Aladdin/Robin Hood. I’m tired of the Anna/Rapunzel/etc type princesses that are very bubbly, cute, overly nice, quirky, that giggles a lot and gets overly excited. I want a princess that isn’t impressed by shit, that can shoot out one-liners, who’s sly and cunning and funny, who’s less friendly and more flawed than the prince for once! I’m sorry, I have a hard time explaining.  And I also don’t want her to be jaded, or at least if she is jaded, not jaded because of a man. 


history of magic meme | one family
                  ❝ en stirps nobilis et gens antiquissima b l a c k.

–––– The Black family traces its origin back to the Middle Ages. They claim to have entirely magical ancestry, but as Sirius Black informed his godson Harry Potter, no true pure-blood families existed by the twentieth century. The pure-blood families like the Blacks simply removed Muggles and Squibs from their family trees. The Blacks place a great importance on blood purity, considering themselves akin to royalty in the wizarding world and disdaining Muggles, Squibs, Blood traitors and Muggle-borns. The family motto, which can be found on the family crest, is T o u j o u r s P u r , which means “Always Pure” in French. Many members took this phrase very seriously.

young avengers is so freaking awesome because it destroys stereotypes. you see the famed gay couple but whoa! teddy altman is an alien son of kree and skrull royalty, and billy kaplan is the son of the scarlet witch and has basically all of her powers! you see kate bishop who at first seems like a bratty rich kid. well, good sir, kate dandier-than-white-bread bishop is a top of the line marksman who wants to save her world with a group of super powered teenagers! freaking awesome, right? you bet your freckled apple bottom it is. you see eli bradley, who is the leader of the group and pays respect to (the first) captain america’s legacy by sporting bucky’s uniform. oh, hey, did i mention he’s black? yeah, we get poc in leadership roles that, until recently, were reserved for white, typically ‘manly’, cishet males, or steve rogers who’s debatably neither cis gendered or heterosexual. freaking awesome!

you see tommy shepherd, a speedster who resembles his uncle pietro maximoff and may or may not be the first asexual marvel hero. you see david alleyne, who knows basically everything (no that’s not an exaggeration, kids) and he’s black! so rarely we see black people, let alone poc, portrayed to be geniuses or revered for their smarts.

you see cassie lang, known for her size-shifting abilities she inherited from her father, scott lang (ant man) come out as a superhero to her hero-phobic parents. sound like a metaphor? that’s ‘cause it is.

you see america chavez who leads the genre, and perhaps all genres in fantastic representation of a lesbian character. she’s tough, she’s mean, she’s moral, she’s got a soft side that, while still rather hardened, gives her dimension (haha, i’m clever).

you see noh-varr, who understands a healthy relationship and how to make it work. he’s the ‘dream boy’ stereotype: tall, muscular, handsome, super-powered, and in love with music and you. but he understands that a relationship needs to be two-sided and he can’t use his powers on his partner. he’s important because the comic community has members that feel entitled to women within the comic community. i’m glad he’s been written.

in conclusion, young avengers is awesome because you get all of these thought provoking characters and *gasp* it doesn’t take away from the plot! i’ve learned more about relationships, about good sex versus bad sex, found myself in a character i never thought i would (tommy, in case you’re wondering), learned more about inequity and how our history likes to leave things out to benefit the speaking majority, and i’ve enjoyed it all through this wonderful comic.


avian au idea. bones kinda freaks out a little at the whole HELLO YOU ACTUALLY DO HAVE PARENTS AND A FAMILY BESIDES YOUR BROTHER thing, which is even more shocking/overwhelming than it normally would be because he’s also alien royalty. it’s very sudden and very alarming and while he and his mother BECOME close, I imagine at first he’s like this weirdo space lady is my mom i need to take a breather i need like fifty breathers 

and then i had to go and make it sad. one of the profiles for ricky back on the old website said he was on the streets since he was four and I’ve always aggressively clung to the idea that he’s either an orphan or disowned by his parents, and i always read bones in canon as not having any parents so…

so yeah. orphan bonding. ricky is probably more jealous than outright resentful of bones’ situation and is probably the one who encourages bones to learn more about his new family. even if it doesnt work out, his old one is still here for him.
