bringing these pictures back

anonymous asked:

do you know how to take care of the plants one would find at home depót

“ depót” did u really just……you know what i’m gonna pretend i didn’t see that so anyways, it depends on the type of plant. it’s not my expertise but for any plant we have we have everything you’d ever need to take care of them and give them a happy long life. and if you manage to kill them somehow we have 1 year warranty if you bring back the dead plant (or a picture of it) with ur receipt and we’ll give you another plant to kill!

Okay, as promised: Etta Candy.

So. Listen. I know that Marston was a million years ago and the dude was basically a crackfic factory with a lot of weird and unproductive ideas about gender and BDSM but he is still the progressive and inspired genius who created Diana and if your Wonder Woman has nothing in common with his it is not a good Wonder Woman. And here is a major thing about Marston’s Wonder Woman: Etta Candy was her Robin.

Now admittedly this is something that was erased really thoroughly by ten minutes into the Silver Age and has remained basically abandoned ever since, largely in favor of making Steve way the fuck more central than he was ever meant to be, because it was and is ~just~ tolerable to have a female hero if you make her life entirely about romance, but God fucking forbid you let more than one woman be important to the story at once. So I can understand that most people aren’t really aware of it. But under Marston’s pen, Steve was not part of Diana’s inner circle. Etta was. Etta came to Paradise Island with Diana, Etta met Diana’s mother and participated in her culture, Etta helped Diana preserve her secret identity from Steve, Etta and her crowd of sorority hooligans were the ones Diana went to first thing when she needed help with a villain or to get someone to guard her comatose body while she astrally projected herself to another world. Etta was Diana’s sidekick. Steve was a major character, yes, and often helped to move the plot, but he was ultimately far less intimate with Diana than any of the women in her life; he was kept constantly in the dark, spent most of his time as an affable damsel in distress, and existed primarily to teach boys that a man looking up to and relying on a woman was totally manly and acceptable, not to be anything remotely approaching Diana’s equal or partner. To the extent that Marston’s Wonder Woman had a partner at all, that was Etta’s job.

And while the romance with Steve is a perpetual stone in my shoe in post-Marston adaptations of Wondy, the continual aggressive use of him as story-consuming male lead and central figure around whom Diana’s life revolves while Etta is lucky to even exist is really the part that’s just fucking rage-inducing. To imagine Steve as Diana’s closest Man’s World relationship and just shove Etta in a corner is to put Commissioner Gordon in tights and a cape alongside Batman and turn Dick Grayson into some random clerk at the police station who gets four lines and a first name only, and yet it happens all the goddamn time.

And you know, writers who understand Wonder Woman’s feminist center do try to ameliorate the fact that Etta got dropped off a cliff the minute Marston left the book. We do get other women (about one per new author in fact), plus Hippolyta when she’s not being crazy, and for a few nice decades there Steve just kind of fell off the same cliff as Etta, which isn’t great but is still better than making him more important than Diana’s family or the few female friends she occasionally manages to be allowed to have. And since those are the decades the film draws from most strongly, the fact that movie!Steve is the deuteragonist and Etta is a trivial tertiary character who barely interacts with Diana at all is all the more blatant a deviation and all the more blatantly wrong.

And she wasn’t even a bad Etta, really. She’s short and (Hollywood) fat and mostly cheerful - she lacks the proper joie de vivre in favor of a sort of upbeat snark, but she projects a very can-do roll-with-the-punches sort of attitude that I don’t think is a terrible translation - and she’s apparently extremely competent, to the point of casual field promotion to spy handler in a crisis. She’s the most visibly, verbally feminist character in the movie, actually (which is a painfully low bar to drag your feet grudgingly over but at least someone for one half second in this story about a historic feminist icon glancingly acknowledged that maybe women haven’t always been treated 100% fairly in non-Themysciran society). And despite having, as far as we know, absolutely zero combat training, she baldly stalls out a German spy with a sword she held for the first time all of five minutes prior, which is the most Etta fucking Candy thing I have seen since she was a nineteen-year-old in Beeta Lambda. (Note to whoever was responsible for the finished screenplay: that scene would be a perfect fit for a “humans have more worth than they at first appear” sort of flashback, just saying.)

But like. All the points they get for that? They toss about a third of them back when they make her an adjunct to Steve instead of to Diana who has no relationship with any other women onscreen and zero agency in the plot, and another third when they make her impatient with/snippy about Diana’s naiveté while Steve is of course patient and charmed. I mean at least she and Diana don’t get in a shitty little sexist catfight thing like in the DTV animated thing, but if that’s the highest standard we’re trying to beat, why even bother.

Seeing that picture of Nedzu and Toshinori, that brings back that one and only headcanon I have of Nedzu.

Remember how Recovery Girl once said Nedzu doesn’t really like humans since they used to experiment on him? And still, he has himself surrounded with humans in a job with many colleagues and children to take care of.

For one, that tells me that despite having made such bad experiences, Nedzu decided not to act on those bad memories alone and instead choose to give humanity another chance – to say that, okay, there were bad humans, terrible ones, but not all of them are like this.

Then, he decided to help guide young humans and keep them on a path where they would not become like those humans who experimented on him.

And third, and most important to me – I highly believe that Nedzu not only chose the teachers of U.A. based on how good they would be for the children.

He also chose people to surround himself with that would be good for himself.

Like… look at the teachers. They are all different, with different believes and different interests, but all of them share the trait that they are empathic (deep down), they care, are selfless and protect. All of them. And that’s not only good for the children they teach, but also Nedzu seems to greatly appreciate every last one of them.

Look at how he interacts with the teachers. He is always seen smiling when he is with them. He climbs onto their shoulders, sits in their laps, hides in Aizawa’s scarf to jump out of it for a surprise – he trusts those people deeply. And coming from someone who has made such bad experiences with humans, that’s really something.

So, yeah, I just assume that Nedzu not only wanted to create a good team of teachers for the children, but also a sort of family for himself. If he has to live in a world full of humans, he at least can surround himself with the type of humans he is comfortable with, whose company he enjoys.
