Feminist show with promising storylines hijacked by straight white men

Monday February 20, 2017

A television series known for its overtly feminist themes was commandeered last night by a white heterosexist writing team. The program had shown initial signs of inclusivity, developing a queer relationship and adding two characters of color to the series last fall. Since then, the lead female protagonist has been dogged by hackneyed romantic tropes, with several compelling storylines derailed to devote additional scenes to the abusive white men vying for her affections.

Key narrative opportunities for the three black characters this season were wasted, as the woman has been written off the show entirely and the remaining two men are being gradually sidelined. Character development for the widely unpopular white male romantic lead continues to dominate screen time. Meanwhile, queer women remain grateful for scraps of visibility.

Have you ever written a soulmate au? If not, would you ever consider doing so?

It’s your lucky day, I have. ;)

The Pendant
‘Inspired by this prompt: AU where instead of a tattoo/name everyone’s born with a pendant/charm necklace that matches their soulmate’s. Dean walks into their bathroom thinking it’s empty, but there’s Cas taking off his shirt to take a shower and Dean sees his necklace (that matches Dean’s, obviously) and freaks out (because Dean is totally 100% NOT gay at all). Bonus if Cas already knows.’

Daffodils & Forget-Me-Nots
‘Inspired by this text post: ‘Soulmate AU where when you write something on your skin with pen/marker/whatever the hell you want, it will show up on your soulmate’s skin as well.’

What Can’t Be Seen
‘Soulmate AU where you first see color after eye contact: Cas is a famous best selling author and he’s promoting his book, so he’s talking to a crowd of people and suddenly his world is in color, and a lot of his fans pretend to be his soulmate. A Cinderella type situation ensues.’

Have fun! :)

It’s no secret that I love Star Wars. I grew up among a brother and a big bunch of male cousins. Not another girl born into my family until I was 19.

Star Wars was something I shared with with my brother and cousins. We were all crazy about it. But Princess Leia was MINE. In 1977, I was 11 years old. There were precious few female main characters in movies or tv shows–and they all seemed to be blonde, leggy, and giggly or seductive.

And Star Wars gave me this princess who was short and had hair the color of mine and got right up in the face of a bad guy who towered over her in the first few minutes of the film. She didn’t give up information under torture or even when her entire planet was threatened with destruction. She took charge of her own rescue when she figured out the boys had no real plan, and she was bossy as hell. Not to mention smart, and brave, and dedicated to the Rebellion long before Han or Luke gave a damn.

And I LOVED HER instantly. I wanted to be her. I even tried to figure out how to braid my own long brown hair into those ridiculous donuts on the side of my head for Halloween.

I still love Princess Leia. She will forever be one of my favorite fictional people. But I’m a grown-up now–a wife, a mother, a woman who’s had her own triumphs and tragedies, and failed at things, and hurt people and been hurt, and just tried to live as honestly and well as I can. So as much as I love Leia, I have exponentially more love for Carrie Fisher.

The actual flesh and blood woman who brought my space princess to life has faced enormous struggles and made big mistakes and suffered. She’s also loved, and lived, and brought a lot of joy to a lot of people. And while I certainly do not know Carrie Fisher personally, I do believe she tried to live her life as honestly and well as she could. And in doing so, she has shown the world she is far more than a beloved fictional character.

Rest In Peace, Carrie Fisher. The world will miss you, and I wish you well.


just two guys….bonding… i can’t believe this is my first contribution to this amazing show…

Color practice!

I’m so sorry for the lack of updates, kittens! I’m planning on showing this comic only when it’s fully completed. There are only three or four pages left to ink but I’m stuck as hell so I’ve let the project rest (that’s what I do when something resist me) and at least I think I got the color palette. Let’s keep fighting!
