She-deserves-an

feel bad for my 17 yr old self on Tumblr who was always sad cause of internalized self hate and wanted to be pretty like the white girls I followed on here cause all the film and cool blogger Dudes liked them 

Things Supergirl should address about Alex but probably won’t

A running list

  • Her drinking
  • Her *possible* anger issues
    • She’s full on ready to torture people
  • The fact that she has actually killed people
    • You don’t go from UCLA National City Bio-engineering nerd to soldier overnight
    • Supergirl makes a point to never kill people and Alex does what’s necessary. Unless it’s Jeremiah, but that’s a whole other thing.
  • The probable trauma she has from almost dying in a plane crash
  • The fact that she does resent Kara for things
    • Friendly reminder that they never actually talked about the things Red-K Kara said to Alex
  • How her family reacts to her drinking
    • Does Kara even know about party-girl Alex?
    • Does anyone but J’onn know?
  • The probable PTS she has from almost dying in a fucking plane crash
    • The plane crash that was specifically meant to assassinate her
  • The possible trauma from the White Martian incident
  • The possible trauma from the Myriad incident
  • The fact that Alex has had to lie out of necessity for her entire life to keep people safe
  • The possible trauma from the water tank incident
    • Though this was only this week’s episode so who knows if they will address it in a future episode
  • Alex has been under some form of mind control at least two times that I can specifically recall.
    • Having someone literally controlling your mind has to be traumatizing as fuck
    • Though it’s not the same- J’onn has read her mind multiple times without her knowledge, I doubt Alex is really 100% cool with that
  • That Rick guy stalked Alex for a year, claiming to know everything
    • That is incredibly creepy and invasive
    • He knew everything about her relationship with Maggie- with whom she “switched teams… so-to-speak”
    • How much is everything?
    • I’m sure both Alex and Maggie are going to need some help dealing with that one.

Feel free to add your own. I’m sure there’s plenty more to add.
