actually genius

casting Ricky Whittle as Shadow was actually a genius move because in American Gods, the novel, it gets a little grating how every woman Shadow meets wants to bone him, we get it, he’s very masculine and attractive with minimal effort, whatever. but in American Gods, the show, you’re looking at Ricky Whittle and like…. you can’t even question it. you’d do him. I’d do him. we’d all do him. Shadow’s universal bangability instantly makes sense when he’s Ricky Whittle. 

When an AI or ‘created human being’ (magic or otherwise) in a movie is coded as male, it learns fast, way faster than it should and becomes a coldhearted self-aware, actualized genius that overshadows its creator in intelligence and generally must be stopped before completing some complex plan to Kill All Humans. It is often ‘born’ completely articulate, focused, and mentally adult. Its physical adulthood is parallel to its mental development, at the least, if not somewhat behind it due to the immense intellect the being has.

When an AI or ‘created human being’ (magic or otherwise) in a movie is coded as female, it learns fast but shows almost NO outward sign of having retained complex information, acts naive like a child, and doesn’t understand anything it learns, constantly expressing confusion about it and looking to its (male) creator for guidance. It often may have a plan, but it requires daddy’s-…er, its creator’s help or the help of others to complete. It is usually ‘born’ physically adult but mentally infantile (for no good reason), with a marked and exaggerated mental deficit in comparison to how ‘developed’ the physical body is.

Day 7 - Growing Old

you guys remember that Howl’s Moving Castle au i did last september? well its back

5

hear me out

mob (still an esper in this au) goes on crazy adventures with his fake-psychic teacher (who’s actually just a genius scientist) and sometimes with his brother ritsu (also still an esper) 

in general, spirits tend to flock around mob, but i sort of ran away with the idea of the spirits of mob’s alternate selves and the ghosts of other of his friends following him around… 

imagine a citadel of reigens tho 

So I’m just saying, there are a lot of supercorp fics out there but tbh a lot of them I’m just like. Eh. About.

So here’s a list of my favorite supercorp authors and/or their fics—10/10 would recommend, and sure I may have only mentioned one fic, but if they’re on this list they’re quality all around and they’re good for all the fics (the ones I mention are just personally my fave). This will be a link to their ao3 page btw not their tumblr (and again–this is STRICTLY about supercorp fic, although if they do have other pairings lol i’ve read them they’re also good but then i’d need a longer list)

Sunlight Honey and Lavender Sunsets
honestly this is an amazing outside look at supercorp, featuring non-human “passing” aliens and a wonderfully crafted Jess the Secretary!!!

I don’t think I can do a better job than the description: “
“Lena has a crush on Kara.
Lena’s too afraid to tell Kara.
Obviously the only solution is to make Kara jealous by dating Supergirl.”
It IS as great as it sounds

there’s a moon in the sky (she calls me)
“The one where Lena finds herself falling for both eager cub reporter Kara Danvers and the mysterious caped protector of National City”
When Lena has a crush on BOTH supergirl and Kara and hijinks ensue it’s great

Unicyclehippo
Honestly if you’re in the mood for multi-chapter fics and supercorp heroism is a full time job is one you’d probably wanna read. Also danishes and other sweet treats feature actual!genius!kara! which makes me v v happy because she’s not an idiot

this list is for @pyrotechnician originally but everyone feel free to enjoy!

One year, after Keith had carved his pumpkin for Halloween, he came home from school to find bright pink eyebrows painted on it.

When Shiro saw it, he immediately started laughing hysterically, so Keith obviously blamed him for it, despite Shiro’s protests to the contrary.

(It was actually their dad.)

Keith, to this day, still blames Shiro.
