ask power girl

anonymous asked:

why don't you like kathleen kennedy? shes the only female and she seems nice

it’s april 2017 and there are still people who dont know kk is a white demon

  • kk is an icon of white feminism.
  • when she doesn’t get involved directly, female characters’ looks get incredibly diverse (animated series or novels etc. although, we can’t say they treat women of color well.)
  • new female actresses who play lead roles, d ridley, f jones, and e clarke are all white brunette (just like her). this is my personal opinion but for me, f jones was the weakest part in rogue one because of her emontionless and soulless performance, but kk was the one who insisted on casting her and she’s very proud of it. we haven’t seen clarke’s performance in the upcoming han solo film yet but she’s already very famous for horrible eyebrow acting (even her fans admit it). tessa thompson and zoe kravitz, who also auditioned for clarke’s role, is obviously better than her.
  • (also, i think the rogue one novel was a bit better but the movie was… it focuses on the white woman, who didn’t care about the rebellion but only herself then becomes a hero. it’s not feminism when men of color are used to spotlight a white woman, especially when one of them has sacrificed everything for the rebellion from when he was a very young kid. when i heard jyn’s character was originally more like cassian i couldn’t stop groaning because THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN SO MUCH BETTER.)
  • ‘for some reason’ she keeps thinking white brunette women are the most ideal people to get the roles. even if she’s doing it unconsciously, it doesn’t change the fact that’s racism. she’s a racist.
  • and when you are a racist you can’t be a feminist because feminism means you support all the women.
  • she seems very passionate when she talks about rey and jyn but when it’s about other actors who are men of color she suddenly becomes silent?? and she talks about this “girl power” a lot but when it’s about races, ethnicities and diversity she doesn’t say anything? it’s always the directors who sat next to her who speak about it, or actors of color themselves. her “girl power” only involves white women and yet she said star wars represented the world. 
  • she was a producer of complete disaster : avatar the last airbender movie, where almost everyone got whitewashed, which means she learned nothing from her past.
  • @kyber-sphere replied:  Actually, she isn’t even a feminist. Every time someone asks questions about “girl power” in panels she gets obviously irritated. One time, she was even dismissive towards the person who asked it too.

MY BROTHER IS REALLY SEXIST AND MY DAD IS SLIGHTLY LESS BUT STILL P R O B L E M A T I C AND MY ENGLISH TEACHER SAYS THAT SINGULAR THEY "IS NOT REAL AND NOT TO BE USED" AND IT MAKES ME REALLY MAD AND I JUST WANT TO VENT AND FIND SOME STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS AND SLAP MY BROTHER IN THE FACE WITH THEM BECAUSE HE SAYS THAT JAMES BOND CAN'T HAVE FEMALE SPIES IN IT AND I'M JUST REALLY, REALLY MAD AND I WANT TO ANGRY CRY

GO AHEAD AND ANGRY CRY. WHILST YOUR BROTHER IS BEING A SEXIST PIG, SLAP HIM WITH SOME REAL FEMALE REALNESS.

This is Eileen Nearne. She was a spy during World War II and at 23 she was dropped by parachute into occupied France to relay messages from the French resistance. She was captured by the Germans, tortured and sent to a concentration camp. But she managed to keep up her story and was moved to a different camp. She managed to escape the camp and hide from the gestapo until the area she was hiding in was liberated. When she passed away in 2010 she was given a hero’s funeral.

SHE’S BADASS. AND WAS A REAL LIFE SPY. SO SHOVE THAT IS YOUR BROTHER’S PIE HOLE.

Check out Virginia Hall. She was wanted by the Gestapo as one of the most dangerous allied spies. She worked for Special Operations Executive (SOE) in Nazi-occupied France in World War II. Having lost her lower leg in 1933, she wore a prosthetic. In 1942, the Germans took direct control of France and Virginia had to leave. She managed to hike all the through the snowy Pyrenees Mountains to Spain on her prosthetic to escape the Nazis. Think about that for a minute. Prosthetics weren’t what they’re like now. This would have been some tough shit. I don’t see James Bond hiking through the snow on a false limb. OH AND. She then returned to France to train and arm guerrilla groups whilst constantly moving around to avoid detection by Nazis - who by this point had issued wanted posters and rewards for the so-called “limping lady”.

JAMES BOND’S GOT NOTHING ON THIS WOMAN.

Meet Nancy Wake. One of the most decorated Allied servicewomen of World War II. Nancy Grace Augusta Wake was known to the Gestapo as ”The White Mouse“ for her ability to evade detection and capture. She was part of the French Resistance and later on in the war joined the Special Operations Executive (SOE). She was parachuted into the Auvergne region of France to provide guerrilla groups with arms. Her compatriots praised her strength and courage, two qualities she needed in abundance when she killed an SS sentry with her bare hands to stop him raising the alarm during a raid. After the war ended, Nancy was awarded the George Medal, the US Presidential Medal Of Freedom, the Médaille de la Résistance and three Croix de Guerres from France.

DON’T TELL ME WOMEN CAN’T BE SPIES BECAUSE I KNOW THEY CAN.

Also, your English teacher is behind the times and in my opinion, totally wrong. Gender is a construct. No-one is born with their gender, they’re born with their sex (literally, the organs you are born with). Gender is something you learn. And should you decide you are not female, or male, or either, then that is your decision. If you want your pronouns to be ‘they’, ‘them’ etc. then so ahead and use that! People are still adjusting to using different pronouns for people. But they will get it eventually. I promise you.

NOW HOLD YOUR HEAD HIGH, USE WHATEVER PRONOUNS YOU DAMN WELL WANT AND STRUT AWAY FROM ALL THAT NEGATIVITY.

I hope you weren’t expecting good designs cause their outfits are really boring and not magical-looking at all lol

Anyway, Midna is a Gerudo with vitiligo (her cousin, Nabooru, is also a hero). Zelda is just Zelda. They’re both 22 years old, attend the same university as Fi, and were both trained by Fi when they just started their magical hero job. Midna’s hero name is the Shadow Queen and she uses the Shadow Mirror to store and summon lots of things (basically her Hyrule Warriors moveset).  Zelda’s hero name is The Empress and she uses light arrows and has the blessings of the Three Golden Goddesses so she can do, like, other magic things too. Together they’re a very famous power couple!!! Or something. Idk, I just made this up right now.

I had to change Midna’s color scheme cause the Twili color scheme would not look good with her vitiligo skin color. Trust me, I tried.

Scientist’s Lament (E2 Harrison Wells x Reader)

“Oh my god you are so talented!Can you do an E2 Harry x reader where they’re really close and Harry asks for advice from reader to ask a girl out, reader thinks it’s her but it’s Caitlin. Reader is heartbroken and hangs out more with Barry who’s been her best friend, distancing herself from Harry while Harry gets jealous and after going out with Caitlin realizes he’s in love with the reader and has been, asking Barry begrudgingly to help him win reader back and it ends with them being together?” omg omg my first The Fash request! Thank you so much for your kind words, and I really hope you like it! xx

You and Harry had been friends ever since he decided to stick around for a bit in your earth, one could say that you were the closest to him out of the group. You found it easy to talk to him and so did he; he made you laugh with his sarcastic comments and dry humor, and whilst he sometimes lashed out as Cisco or Barry for their childish ways, he never yelled at you if you were part of the tomfoolery. It was no wonder that you developed a crush on the doctor.

“You’re staring again…” a voice broke you out of your trance, Barry smirked at you as you began to blush.

“Sorry.” You whispered, hastily looking at the notes you were writing down prior to staring at said doctor.

“You know, you should just ask him out, girl power and all that good stuff.” He said shrugging.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” You said curtly, avoiding his eyes.

“Y/N, the rest of the team might not be as observing as yours truly, but I see the looks you two give each other, and the special treatment he gives you.” He said, a grin erupted on his face once you began blushing once again.

“Just don’t tell anyone, I’ll tell him when the time is rig-”

“Barry, I would appreciate it if you stopped wasting time and finished the report I need.” Harry came up to where you two were seated, interrupting you mid sentence.

“Aw come on, Y/N was ‘wasting time as well’.” Barry whined using air quotation marks, mocking him.

“Not from where I could see, now stop making excuses and do your work.” He said, smiling at you before going back to his work area.

“Favoritism in the work place is the worst…” Barry muttered as you laughed.

A week had past and you were still working up the courage to tell him how you felt. You were thinking of ways of how you could bring it up but before you could come up with an idea Harry came by your desk.

“Hello, Y/N.” he said nervously. That was odd, he was rarely ever nervous.

“Hi, is there anything I can do for you, Harry?” You asked.

“Um, yes, I don’t know how to say this, I’m not really good when it comes to stuff like this but you’re one of my closest friends and um…” was that a blush you saw dusting his face?

“For goodness sake, spit it out Harry!” You exclaimed.

“How do you ask out a girl in this earth?” He blurted out. You were definitely not expecting that. You cleared your throat before answering him, a million thoughts racing through your head.

“Ah, well it depends on the girl, I can’t give you a general idea because then it won’t be as special.”

“I can’t tell you who it is, but I assure you, you know her quite well.” He said, rubbing the back of his neck.

You were internally screaming, if you had read the signs correctly, just like Barry had said, then this could mean that you were this mystery girl.

“Well, that’s still a little vague but how about you start by sending her a bouquet of flowers? Try to find out her favorite flower and send her a bouquet, she would love that.”

“Of course! Why didn’t I think of that! Thank you, Y/N.” he marveled.

“Do you think I should send it to her while she’s at work? Or is that too much?”

“I don’t see any harm in that, it’ll brighten up her work day.” You replied.

“Perfect, I’ll send them out tomorrow, thanks again.” Before you could answered him, he was halfway down the hall.

You quickly texted Barry what had happened and he sent back a bunch of exclamation marks and happy emojis with an 'I told you so.’ You couldn’t wait for tomorrow to arrive.

The next day you basically ran to the lab, you could’ve given the flash a run for his money. You were the first one to get there, Barry arrived shooting you a knowing glance. The rest of the team arrived except for Harry.

It was mid noon and you were getting nasty, the anticipation was killing you. You were sitting next to Barry about to ask him something when Cisco came into the cortex, carrying a bouquet of marigolds. Barry nudge you, a smile on his face as he pointed to Cisco and the flowers.

“Oh Ms. Snow, you have a delivery.” He sang out. Your breath hitched, they were for Caitlin…maybe it was a coincidence? It had to be. Barry gave you a worried look as you held your breath. Caitlin stood up from her desk and walked over to Cisco, grabbing the flowers and the card that was attached to them. She began to read it and her faced turned red, a smile gracing her face.

“So, who are they from?” Cisco asked.

“Excuse me, I have to go thank Harry for this.” She said before leaving the cortex and heading to Harry’s office.

You felt your heart shatter, every part of you felt numb. You didn’t even hear Barry repeatedly calling out your name. You felt a rush of wind and in an instant you were in Barry’s living room.

“Y/N, please say something, you’re scaring me.” Barry begged.

“They were for Caitlin. Harry likes Caitlin, not me. It was her.” You mumbled as you blinked rapidly, trying to fight off the tears that were threatening to escape but it was no use, a sob escaped your lips and Barry took you in his arms, hugging you tightly as you soaked his shirt with your tears. Minutes passed and you were finally beginning to calm down, Barry was rubbing circles on your back, soothing you as he whispered that everything was going to be okay.

“Listen, I know I’m not supposed to use my powers for evil but you just say the word and I’ll lock him up in one of the cells, he won’t even see it coming.” Barry suggested. You let out laugh, and shook your head.

“No, like you said, I’m going to be okay. I just need time.” He nodded, kissing your temple softly as more tears began to roll down your cheeks.

“I love him Barry…” you said, as you clutched his shirt in your your hands.

You ended up staying the night at Barry’s, you were like a sister to him and he didn’t want to leave you alone.

You woke up later than usual and to your surprise Barry was still in his apartment, flashing around and cleaning. He soon noticed that you were awake.

“Finally! You’re up! I was so bored I started cleaning.” He said coming up to you.

“What time is it?”

“Five to noon.” He answered.

“WHAT?! Barry, we’re so late Ha-” you stopped talking, not daring to say his name out loud.

“No worries, already got that covered. I told Cisco to tell the rest of the team that you and I were needed at Star City. I even had Felicity call them to ask if we were on our way yet, so we have a three day weekend!” He announced, fist pumping the air. You let out a breath that you didn’t know you were holding and nodded.

Barry sat next to you on the bed, one of his arms wrapped around your shoulders.

“I know you’re upset, but I promise you, you will get over Harry, he doesn’t deserve you. I also promise that I’ll be here for you. Now, no more crying or moping. I already cleaned, got your favorite take out, and your favorite movies, the pillow fortress in the living room awaits!” He said before throwing you over his shoulder, both of you laughing.

The weekend past and the two of you were finally back at STAR labs. You weren’t 100% over Harry but you weren’t as sad as you were. You greeted Cisco as he entered, followed by Caitlin and Harry who were holding hands. Your breath hitched and Barry began rubbing his thumb over your hand, calming you down.

“Hey guys, how was Star City?” Caitlin asked as she and Harry came up to where you and Barry where seated. Harry’s eyes landed on Barry’s hand and how he was holding yours.

“It was good, I was really happy to see Felicity.” You answered, never meeting Harry’s stare.

“Shouldn’t you be getting to work, Allen?” Harry barked out. Harry never calls Barry by his last name unless they were arguing about a mission.

“I decided to take a personal day and spend some more time with Y/N, is that a problem?” Barry asked curtly.

“No, not at all.” Harry hissed out, Caitlin tugged on his arm and they left to the other side of the cortex.

“Wow, I guess the honeymoon phase only lasted for the weekend, huh?” Barry muttered earning a laugh from you.

“You’re asking for a smack down.”

“Ah, but that would require for him to actually catch me.” He joked.

A couple of weeks passed and you and Barry had only grown closer, no you weren’t developing feelings for the speedster, you knew he was in love with Iris but he was waiting for the right time. You still had feelings for Harry but you’ve learnt to let him go; if he was happy then that was enough for you.

Little did you know that he was far from happy, he thought that he liked Caitlin but he soon realized that she was not you.

Everyday that he was with Caitlin, he was longing for you. That day he ended things with her, she handled it with grace and wished him luck. Caitlin knew that it wouldn’t last, she saw the way his jaw would set whenever you laughed at one of Barry’s jokes, how he would scoff whenever you would ask if Barry was around and how his eyes with burn with jealousy whenever you would hug Barry after a mission.

“You better go and tell her how you feel.” Caitlin said, giving him a half smile, before leaving his office. Harry nodded as he thought of how to do so, it was easier said than done. You were closer to Barry than ever before, could it be that you were dating? He needed answers and he needed then now.

He hunted down Barry and thanked his lucky stars that you weren’t around, you were at the station picking up some reports.

“Mr. Allen, could I talk to you in private?” Barry looked up from his phone and nodded, following him into the hallway.

“I’m just going to skip the pleasantries and get straight to it.” Barry had a hunch of what this was about and he had to bite his lip so he wouldn’t laugh, he enjoyed watching the always composed Dr. Wells being all fidgety.

“Are you and Y/N together?”

“Well no, as you can see she’s not here next to me as you interrogate me.”

“Stop playing games and answer the question.” Harry growled, Barry raised his arms in defense and chuckled.

“No we’re not, she’s like a sister to me and I’ve been there for her ever since you broke her heart.”

“What do you mean?” Barry scoffed at his question.

“Wow, you are both one of the most brilliant scientist of your time, and the dumbest. She loved you, when you asked her for advice she thought that you felt the same about her and were finally going to ask her out, but we all know what happened next.” Barry responded.

“I can’t believe it, all this time… Barry you have to help me win her back.” Barry considered it for a few moments, he shook his hand and agreed to. He knew that you were still in love with Harry  and he wanted to see you happy, even though he still wanted to punch Harry for all the tears that he caused.

Every day for a week you found a daisy on your desk, accompanied by your favorite cup of coffee. You suspected that it was Barry but it couldn’t had been because he was your ride to work.

Friday came and you found a dozen of daisies on your desk with a giant teddy, attached to him was a note that read,

“I’m beary sorry, please forgive me… H.W.”

You read the note at least five times, you were going to read it again but Barry snatched it out of your hands and told you to go and see Harry.

“Barry, I can’t. What if this doesn’t mean what I want it to mean…” you whispered.

“Y/N, trust me. It’s going to be okay, it’s going to be wonderful.” He encouraged. You nodded and headed towards Harry’s office.

You hesitated for a couple of minutes before knocking, a soft come in, welcomed you in.

You cleared your throat making your presence known.

“You know, the florists are going to miss doing business with you.” You joked, trying to break the tension in the room. His tense face broke into a smile.

“Words can’t express how sorry I am for hurting you. I thought I knew what I wanted but you never know what you have until it’s gone, and believe me Y/N, these weeks without you have been the worst of my life.”

“Harry…”

“I’m in love with you, and I’m embarrassed to admit how long it took me to realize it.” He concluded.

You gasped, you spent countless of days imagining him professing his love for you and it finally happened.

“What about Caitlin? She’s my friend and I don’t want to hurt her…” you replied, blinking back tears.

“We ended things on good terms, she threaten me if I didn’t man up and confessed my feelings for you she would destroy most of my work.” He said rubbing his neck, chuckling slightly.

That was all you needed to know for you to cross the distance between the two of you and hug him, he welcomed you in his arms and captured your lips in a kiss that was far too long overdue.

Like Barry told you, everything would be okay and it finally was.

@ riot give me more lore pls

“There is such a thing as friendship between women, you know!!”

Decided to do this with my sister from another mister @ask-papasuke.

I wish the fandom would learn to stop pinning the female characters against each other. :’( Just because you like Sakura doesn’t mean you have to hate Karin, and vice versa! Just because you don’t ship a ship doesn’t mean you should bash the other character! All characters have their good and bad, but let’s face the facts - these two are canon friends, as we all should be. <3

So are Sakura and Hinata (which will come later ;D). All these wars are so pointless. I wish I could bake a cake filled with rainbows and smiles and everyone would eat it and be happy.

Thanks for delivering my baby, love! ;)
