American Ninja Warrior Anon! I imagine that while Jiang Cheng is competing Wei Wuxian runs next to him saying stuff that makes Jiang Cheng go faster so he can finish the course and smack his brother. Also any Lan would be perfect at the upper body obstacles because of their arm strength

JC while he’s being restrained by 5 people: YOU THINK I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING?!

WWX while he’s laughing and hiding behind LWJ: i only wanted to help and now im feeling so attackedtttttt

Reasons why American Ninja Warrior is 100% Good and Pure
  • Awesome outfits
  • No fighting involved, despite the name
  • Everybody cheers for everybody
  • Men and women compete on the same course on equal footing
  • Even the best competitors fail, and take it in stride
  • “Akbar Gbaja-Biamila” rolls off the tongue in a pleasant way
  • You’re only competing against the course and yourself
  • SUPER FUN OBSTACLES
  • Holy shit how are these people doing any of this
  • The way Matt Iseman says “A-MER-i-can NINjaaaa WAAAAARrior.”
  • When you wipe out the worst that happens is you get wet
  • Adorable parents, kids and SOs in matching t-shirts on the sidelines, cheering
  • Many ripped and bare-chested men
  • Many ripped and goddess-like women
  • Badass competitors with day jobs like weatherman, flight attendant, and FedEx delivery driver
  • All the other athletes are SUPER PSYCHED when someone does awesomely
  • Kids with sparkly signs in the bleachers
  • The hosts shouting semi-incoherently when someone’s Killing It on the course
  • Successful competitors using their notoriety to start up foundations and help kids
  • So many long-haired hippie rock climbing types
  • Akbar’s infinite well of Dad Jokes
  • People who DIY up Ninja obstacle courses in their backyards or gyms
  • Only one sponsor, and they just want you to drink some pomegranate juice

Have you heard of American Ninja Warrior? Where people compete on the insane obstacle courses? I like to imagine the MDSZ (And Occasionally SV) characters competing on those courses. (andsometimesfailingbecauseeventhebestathletesfail)

I have! I watched some of it even haha WWX would sabotage JC bc he thinks it’s funny and the production crew would have to restrain JC in order to stop a homicide from happening. We can use the cultivator’s rankings on their results here as well *flips hair* LXC IS THE BEST looool

'Supergirl' stuntwoman kills it on 'American Ninja Warrior,' dressed as Wonder Woman
Move over, Gal Gadot.

“Meet Jessie Graff, the Supergirl stuntwoman and American Ninja Warrior competitor who made history (again) on the show, where advanced athletes compete in near-impossible obstacle courses.

In season five she was the first woman to qualify for the city finals. In this season, she’s the first woman to conquer the new 14.5 foot Warped Wall (aka SUPER HARD) in the Los Angeles qualifiers.

And she did it all while wearing a Wonder Woman costume. Because, we repeat, she is a real-life superhero. Watch the glory for yourself.”

Random sudden idea- kara on American ninja warrior

God bless your soul I’ve thought about this so much. Also I know somewhere someone’s done a thirsty supercorp version and that’s super awesome and all but I’m here for more the community/family/kara doing stupid shit with her powers side of the fandom so here’s an alternate take:

Kara’s like one of those teachers that has the international “I was looking for something fun to do and this seemed like a good example for the kids” story but it’s all a lie and she’s not even a teacher she’s a reporter who has no good background for being in this or anything

(well, if we subscribe to the Catco as Buzzfeed bit where Kara has to do exercise vids cause someone realized she was ripped, that’s even better and you know what I’m here for that)

First of all, if you haven’t seen American Ninja Warrior, check out this vid of Supergirl stuntwoman Jessie Graff killing it for some context, it’s epic. Now, picture, the Superfriends plus oblivious Lena watching American Ninja Warrior and Kara accidentally picking up something super heavy with one hand and Lena’s jaw dropping. Winn smirked. “Yah, Kara’s a regular American Ninja Warrior.  She should be on the show!”

“Don’t be ridiculous, Winn.”

“What, are you scared?”

Well, now she had to do it.

Things that happen:

  -James made t-shirts and all of CatCo wears them and cheers Kara on
  -they make those behind the scenes training videos that are totally real, because Kara had to learn how to use high-intensity human strength without Shattering Things, 
  - Kara doesn’t have the time to keep coming back as a recurring champion, so she determines that she will Epically Fail at some point, her plan is to fall off the salmon ladder
  - there’s a crisis on earth-1 she helps out with and sees Oliver doing the salmon ladder
  - now she obviously can’t lose at the salmon ladder
  - she keeps meaning to lose. but Alex makes a really good point about how if she beats Stage 4 she gets a million dollars, and think of the groceries Kara, You do enough for the city it’s not cheating, and it’s money from this big tv corporation.  take their money.  do it.
   -
Kara constantly stopping to wave to the crowd and always tuned in to Alex’s voice with her superhearing, Alex saying things like “this obstacle is hard, look like you’re braced really tight but don’t crush this log accidentally. Same density as a Phorian, don’t crush it.  Good. Now shake out your hands like that was hard for you.  Smile, wave. Good. Almost there.  Don’t forget this jump is high, it’s supposed to look hard. Frown in concentration.  Nice.”
   - She’s a crowd favorite for her smiles and waves
   - she’s also like the first person to do it with glasses, she refuses to take them off for identity reasons despite the showrunners literally begging her for safety reasons, she insists “i do everything with my glasses”
  - She’s also a crowd favorite cause she’s openly single and most of the other competitors are in committed relationships or married, so everyone can drool over her guilt-free
   - she actually gets asked out several times, once by another competitor, and everyone’s really really nice about it, but she gracefully turns them all down for reasons she’s not entirely sure of but Winn and Alex both have knowing smirks and Lena stiffens every time she gets asked out but isn’t there for the answer
   - Kara is besties with literally all the other competitors (if you watch the show they’re all super supportive and it is QUALITY which is why it’s the best game show EVER they’re so positive it’s just wholesome)
   - I now actually wanna think more about Kara’s friend Jessie from American Ninja Warrior who accidentally gets kidnapped or whatever and Supergirl flies through the roof to rescue her only to find Jessie already parkouring away from all danger; Jessie squints really hard when Supergirl takes them out and goes “Kara? I freaking knew it no one should be able to jump that far to reach the bar”
   - meanwhile Kara’s getting a little antsy about her identity so she intentionally fails even though she could totally ace that course, she actually fails on an obstacle she’s aced multiple times before and shrugs her way through an interview asking what happened

Everyone’s super sad about Kara not winning.  But it’s okay.  Kara has a plan.  Next season on American Ninja Warrior isn’t Danvers-lacking.

Alex Danvers, “Security Consultant” competes instead.
   - Alex, who doesn’t have to worry about breaking obstacles or giving away her non-human-ness (though there is chatter of aliens deliberating joining, they’d just have to have human-like abilities, Supergirl could run through this course like child’s play, of course, haha!)
  - Alex, who doesn’t bother worrying about making the crowd love her, just answers their cheers with a few terse smiles at the beginning, then collapses into her sister’s arms when Kara leaps to climb up the tower where Alex punched the end button and wins each course
   - Alex, who is recorded swearing creatively and sometimes in alien language at several different points under her breath and it has to be edited out cause it’s a family show
  - Alex, who signs all the autographs for little girls while Kara just about melts with happiness because finally other people are seeing her big sister for the superhero she is
  - The commentators think the sister-supporting-sister relationship is literally the best thing ever (cause it is) but are sorta baffled by the way Alex refuses to compete in a special race against Kara point-blank even tho it’s just for fun
   - Alex wins the American Ninja Warrior competition, the first woman to do so, and Kara shows up to work with no voice for several days  cause she and Eliza screamed themselves hoarse last night at the competition
   - the internet explodes with the eight-minute video of the commentators (I love those dudes’ excitement) losing their damn minds as Alex crushes the world’s hardest course and then Kara scales the top tower like a monkey to hug her sister

Alex drops by Lena’s office the next day.  “Hello, fellow millionaire.”

Lena laughs loudly, congratulates her thoroughly over lunch.  At the end, she says dryly, “you know I’m a billionaire though, right?”

“Goddammit.”

Alex spends the money on a new motorcycle, Kara’s groceries fund, an LGBT+ youth charity, and absolutely refuses to go back on the show ever again–she’s got things to do, like keep the world safe.  It doesn’t stop the kids’ fanmail from coming in, a few a week at first, petering down to a few a year.  She answers it all.
