benched characters


“so until you are ready to cut the things you want to cut…” “…Don’t draw the sword” - Chapter 40

Happy Belated Birthday to @nighte-goggles !!! :D Thank you for being such a wonderful sweetheart and sharing lots of lovely thingies with me on the internet, and for putting up with my long hobo silences and drawing my characters and for all around just being a really awesome person. For this, we should all celebrate you and how cool you are! I hope you had a great day! C:

While a lot of the time, being a hero could be a fairly frantic business – even simply as a supplier of goods and occasionally services – there were still opportunities to relax. White Hat was not one to allow these to pass him by, and at this moment in time, he’d flopped himself over the nearest available seat belly-first and kicked off his shoes, exposing pawlike feet and squishy teal toebeans.

There were probably more comfortable ways to drape over something, but he didn’t really care about that right then, he just wanted to relax for a bit and not care about margins for error or dismantling death traps he couldn’t see by proxy, or amateur heroes calling in for advice while they were in a death trap they could have avoided. Today had been a long, long day.

Ok so I think Black Panther will be the last marvel movie I see, as I’m really interested in what they do with T'Challa (and that amazing cast), but after that I’m done. I’m tired of Marvel constantly announcing White-guy movies and saying they’re ‘nothing like we’ve ever seen before’. Yes we have, we’ve seen them a million times over yet Hollywood keeps churning them out. I’m tired of Marvel benching strong female characters, and their distinct lack of POC. Im tired of the fandom glorifying and infantilising abusive villains, eg. Grant Ward, Killgrave, Loki, and shipping them and their victims (skyeward/ killgravexJessica/ FrostHawk) I’m tired of the whitewashing, eg. Maximoffs, Tilda Swinton, etc. And I’m tired of the fandom raving about how diverse it all is. I’m done.

Regarding Thea this season - were you as disappointed as me that she has had little to no storyline this season and has been in very few episodes? And Oliver telling her there was something wrong with her when all she had done was tried to protect his secret? And then referring to her as 'broken' in a later episode? This is one of the most frustrating aspects of this season-one of many. Instead we got a whole episode on Wild Dog's past that had little lasting impact on present day.

As far as my reactions to specific events in episodes, the reviews are great places to go to get my take. I recall being pretty frustrated with Oliver in that episode.

I was concerned the moment Thea hung up the hood that she’d have a much smaller role. The minute you aren’t on Team Arrow you just eliminated half the show. The danger is to get regulated to LL land like in Seaon 1 where it feels like the character is on a different show. However, Thea has gotten a lot of focus the past few seasons. Every character gets benched eventually so I suppose she was due. But I don’t like it.

Hopefully Thea rejoins Team Arrow or they do a better job of integrating her into the main plot next season.

I found this beautiful reading spot / chillin spot and I’m absolutely in love with how secluded this place is. I know where i can go to escape now, like I’ve honestly just wanted someplace to go read and chill and not be bothered by people and I’ve found it I hope! can’t wait to chill here when exams are done🙈🌸.

A long list of all of Hannah’s favourite fanfiction;

➥“I don’t like showing up unannounced in a girl’s room,” he continues, as if she hadn’t spoken. “I know the Salvatore brothers are known for it, and even dear Elijah indulges now and then, but I do not. It’s rather creepy, I think.”

Caroline likes to credit herself for being able to handle a lot of shit (her own father locked her up in a cell and tortured her for hours, for crying out loud), but the implications of a gift from the scariest, most unstable, and downright evil creature in existence is too much for even her to repress. // klaus/caroline, caroline/originals, ensemble

Domesticated Dragons AU

Character A is taking their minature, domesticated dragon for a walk through the park, when Character A’s dragon becomes fixated on an object – the fallen leaves, acorns, pretty pebbles – and refuses to budge until they’ve found the most perfect object to add to their hoard.

While waiting for their dragon to finish up, Character A sits down on the same bench as Character B, who is also waiting on their dragon, and the two of them strike up a conversation about owning dragons – the hassle of cleaning up after them, the dangers of owning a firebreathing dragon, trying to clean up their hoard once it starts to smell, etc.

I drew Nami while listening to Killer Queen.

This was originally me practicing drawing sitting poses but then it got out of hand.
