Concept: In the finale of Crazy Ex Girlfriend Rebecca does run straight off the cliff, only to be saved by Supergirl (maybe Kara was at the wedding as someone’s plus one?) and at first she brings Rebecca back to where everyone is (just not as close to the ledge) and the scene resumes as normal for a bit. Then Rebecca decides she Does Not Want To Be Here and so Supergirl carries her off to somewhere safe and private (with a dire warning from Paula to keep Cookie safe Or Else). Rebecca and Supergirl end up having a long talk where they bond over their shared fear of abandonment and serious parental issues.
Bonus round: Supergirl takes Rebecca to Dr. Akopian, and winds up signing on for therapy herself.
Honestly…It makes me really uncomfortable when people draw Leia’s Episode 4 Dress as being really tight with a big slit up the leg, because that’s not how it was at all??
It doesn’t even cling to her breasts or anything?? There’s like…a Small knee length slit, I guess, if you look hard enough. But this, and most other outfits of Leia’s, strike me as incredibly modest and professional. In fact, Lets take a look at that for a second.
Look at what she chooses to wear on Cloud City in Episode 5.
Like…It’s a dress with pants? And I think this was probably an outfit she either A.) Packed for the trip on the falcon or B.) Was provided to her by Lando, And I find it hard to believe that Lando would force an outfit on her, considering he was very nice to her in previous scenes. She would have chosen it out of several different options.
I won’t add pictures, but her White Hoth outfit also consists of a jacket and pants. It’s sensible. They’re in the freezing cold. Why would she wear something sexy. She Wouldn’t.
There are honestly only two instances over the course of three movies where she /kind/ of shows skin. Instance 1 is at the end of Episode 1 where she…Kind of, I guess, Has some cleavage showing?
Like Barely. Keep in mind as well that this dress is floor length and has long sleeves. The second instance is at the end of Episode 6 on Endor
This slit is definitely more revealing, but to be honest, I can’t remember a single time in Episode 6 where it was apparent? They Honestly may have just done this for promotional material? Other pictures of the dress come off as much more modest
I’ve worn dresses shorter than this, so, I wouldn’t exactly consider this revealing by any means.
So when does Leia put on something a little sexier? There’s gotta be one instance right?
Yeah, Against her fucking will.
What I’m getting at here is that I hate the weird sexualization of Leia in Nerd Culture. It’s literally so rampant. It’s not surprising to me whatsoever, but it still makes me mad.
Leia Organa, a 19 year old Freedom Fighter personally fucking chose to dress modestly and people still depict her as this oversexualized Male Gaze Fantasy Being and it’s really disappointing tbfh.
i’ll never be cynical about love no matter how many times i get hurt and i can say that honestly. maybe i’m resilient or too hopeful and maybe it’s just me but..to have the opportunity to love so many different times and so many different ways in this life is a beautiful thing. to be shown how to grow as a person and to have the chance to discover things about yourself each time, is one of the best things ever. yes heartbreak hurts and it sucks but to know that it’s not the end and to know that the next time around it will be a whole new kind of excitement…. is worth holding on to. we get to work through these lessons and carry them with us forever.
