I’ve literally rewatched all of Doomworld to make sense of Len’s characterization and honestly, I don’t think it’s as far off as I originally thought it was, or that it’s irreconcilable with the Len we know. After I calmed down, I could make sense of so much of his behavior by reading between the lines.
So I’m sharing that with you, a sort of quick look into his scenes in the episode.
Even though she was only in the opening scene of the Season 2 finale of Legends of Tomorrow, Felicity blew me away. She blows me away on a regular Wednesday, that’s true, but this one just went above and beyond anything they have ever done with her so far.
And no, this is not about Felicity being in a mask or having a costume or fighting with other vigilantes. Not in the least. In fact, I personally, hold the firm and unyielding belief that there is nothing more badass than people who fight injustice in their own identity - no code names, no masks, no leather (and more often than not - no fists). Felicity Smoak has been that badass since season 1.
The reason I’m so amazed is that with this new reality the LoT writers had the freedom to make and shape Felicity Smoak into just about anyone without having to justify their actions beyond saying “it’s an alternate reality, jeez!”. Yet they didn’t take that opportunity. They kept Felicity Smoak as is - who she is at her core and in her heart - a hero. An indisputably fierce, brave and strong woman.
Yet they didn’t make her into some Superwoman who can’t be defeated. Quite the opposite, really (spoilers). But I have no problem with this as well (I thought I might have a lot of problems with Sara being the one to kill her, but I don’t. Because what we saw in the LoT finale was not Sara). They made Felicity and her abilities feel real. And there are very few (perhaps none) people in the DCTV verse as it is today that could stand a chance against Sara Lance, DCTV’s best fighter, and Amaya Jiwe and her ability to adopt the powers and qualities of any animal via her magical amulet. So naturally, Felicity couldn’t too.
It helped solidify the stakes at hand. Felicity is the last hero left to stand up for Star City. Everyone else is gone. And she is outnumbered, outgunned, outmatched and yet she keeps fighting. She’s doing the right thing. She’s putting one foot in front of the other and honouring her fallen teammates, friends, and family. The appearance might be different than the Felicity we know and love but the spirit is there. It’s there and it’s shining through.
To make her even more amazing though, Felicity Smoak sustained multiple injuries in the span of these 3 minutes. She landed badly and possibly twisted (if not broke) her right ankle, she was hit by both Amaya and Sara multiple times. She was thrown down a long, metal staircase and crashed into the ground at the end of it, sustaining possibly a concussion and at the very least cracked ribs and some damage to her spine. And if the staircase fall didn’t give her a concussion then the force Amaya hit her with her gun surely did.
She’s alone. There’s no back up coming. She’s bruised and twisted and quite possibly in a lot of pain. She’s also smart. She knows the odds don’t look good for her. She knows she will quite possibly die. But she doesn’t let all of that break her for even a second. Even when she can’t fight physically she keeps doing so with her words, telling Darhk, Amaya and Sara where they can shove it.
She died a death that fit her - fighting for her home and for what she believes in like the true hero that she is.
it looks like a sunflower mane or something! it has this fluffy feeling that literally makes me feel like petting his hair every time I see him and pulling those two long front locks of his, those front locks also happen to be my favorite part of his hair.
I love how it always looks so detailed in the back view.
his hair is so unique, but at the same time it’s pretty common, I mean there are a lot of hairstyles that are similar to Toshinori’s own in anime but something about his hair always intrigues me… it’s probably because of the love I have for anime blonde males
I just re-read the whole kamino arc looking for good pictures of Toshi and now I have the feels!!!! But here are some more panels with Toshi’s pretty hair.
and of course there’s Izuku. If there’s any anime hairstyle that I can call one of the most unique it’s gonna be his. Sure there are a lot of anime guys with curly hair (although I do not understand how Izuku’s hair is supposed to be curly in any way) like Leo (kekkai sensen), Gintoki, Nice (hamatora) and hinata (haikyuu). But I just love how Izuku’s hair is. It’s a bit “westernized”, like his hair is the type you see in American comics and whatnot. You really notice this when Horikoshi uses that American-styled comic art for his cover pages sometimes.
I love how his hair looks so wavy in the wind!!! XD
and I think my favorite part of Izuku’s hair is how it can look so incredibly detailed like this:
and then just go to this:
this child has some beautiful hair though…
Izuku’s hair is just so freaking awesome, especially when Horikoshi really, really, really draws those highlights in!!!! It’s one of those hairstyles that I just spend so much time analyzing on a regular basis for no reason whatsoever… *sigh* what am i doing with my life?
in short, I just really love my son’s hair.
and then there’s Kacchan. I. CAN’T. TELL. YOU. HOW. MUCH. I. ADORE. THIS. BOY’S. HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kacchan’s hair is absolute perfection!!! Yes, the infamous spiky hairstyle for boys has been around for over a decade in anime, but Kacchan’s hair is on a whole other level compare to anyone else with blonde spiky hair (excluding naruto and all super saiyans)
His hair looks like a spiky puffball and I constantly want to pat it, because it just looks so soft and fluffy and I have a thing for poofy-like hair in anime.
His hair looks perfect in all directions, front, back, left, right, front side view, and it’s just so I don’t know, PRETTY?!
How can someone look so perfect in back view anyway?!
I love the color of his hair too, it’s incredibly close to his skin color, but it comes out really nice to me (mainly because i have a thing for anime blondes)
and I can’t forget the most important one,
use this pretty face to help you sleep at night
I’ve also grown to like Mina’s hair too, maybe it’s because it’s similar to Izuku’s… I don’t know, but I love how fluffy her hair is.
her hair is pretty
I have a thing for well detailed hair.
Shigaraki’s hairstyle is a hairstyle I really like, I love how messy and sloppy it is. TBH, I really love anime guys with full, messy shoulder length hair.
I love this angry child’s hair ^^
the reason I love Zawa’s hair is basically the same reason I love Shigaraki’s. It’s long, wavy, and pretty. just like his face
and of course I can’t forget the bun c:
I have a deep love for Kaminar’s hair. It’s been one of my favorites since the beginning.
chapter 107 just gives me so many reason to love this boy and his hair.
and my favorite thing about his hair will forever be that black highlight…
it’s so cool!
and lastly, it’s my red headed, shark toothed boy Kirishima!
of this in the series.
however, how his hair stays up 24/7 will always remain a mystery to us fans…
Here are some honorable mentions!
I love Shouto’s hair, plus he looks adorable here (even though he’s angry), although his hairstyle is pretty common in anime.
I freaking love Hatsume’s spaghtetti hair XD
Tsuyu’s hairstyle is really unique. It’s something that really intrigued me when I started reading bnha.
I REALLY love Shindou’s hair, it’s just cute. Plus it reminds of me of Ritsu’s so yeah.
I have an odd and very specific problem... I was writing a fanfic for voltron and I realized that I want to write the plot of my fanfic into an original story since it's completely mine but with obviously voltron characters... do I continue the fanfic or cancel it so that I can write it out for my original?
As odd and specific as your problem may feel, I can promise you this is a burning indigestion that lives inside many writers, my dear.
The original idea for my Citrus Witches, actually came from a Merlin fanfic I wrote back when Geoffrey of Monmouth was still alive. It ended up veering far and wide from the original plot, only about 15% of it comes from that original fic I wrote, but the fact remains, it’s still there. I also took an entire scene from a Free! fic I wrote for this story.
If you feel a real connection with this story, and you want to see it take on it’s own life outside of an existing show, and become your own thing, I would definitely encourage you to do that. I think fic is a really great place to fine tune your writing and to spark new ideas, it’s up to you to decide what you want to do with that.
Pals, I know I don’t actively post here anymore (sorry not sorry, my mental health has significantly improved from it) although I do still check in on some of you
BUT tumblr is literally the reason why I even have any friends in Melbourne and all you friends are why I’ve been wanting to move down (some of you know the plan has recently been becoming more concrete)
So just wanted to say that the Big Move is real and actually happening - in just over two weeks my long-time dream will be true and I’ll be living in Melbourne!!!
This is my classes pet Betta fish, Jesus! (pronounced like the religious figure, not hey-soos). I’m going to buy him some stuff for his tank when I get the chance, poor guy must be really bored in there.
