Hi! I want to try the thing of the ships! I'm really into the world of comics, manga, games and shows since I was a child. I'm studying Japanese philology and I have red hair. (The color of the cocacola cans). I love heights, cats, roller coasters and junk food. I always wear baggy swearshirts, or tight pants and boy's t-shirts. And I want de Marvel fandom, please.

You started off as Peter’s friend, the two of you met at the local comic book shop. He is surprised to see a girl into comics and you gave him the low down - OF COURSE GIRLS LIKE COMICS, YOU IDIOT!. Over time, he becomes infatuated with you. He’s clumsy and nerdy, awkward when he talks to you, but eventually things smooth out and the two of you realize how much you have in common. And you finally admit to liking the dork, too. Your first date consist of roller coasters and laughing too loud at each other’s lame jokes. Eventually, you find out he’s Spider-Man and it only fuels the teasing you serve him. It’s only fair, because Peter likes to constantly point out that your hair matches his suit - making the two of you a perfect couple.

SHIPS ARE CLOSED.

This Black Queer Love Story Is Exactly What The Comic World Needs
You'll literally fall in love with this queer romance novella.

Black queer love between two women often goes underrepresented in any medium.

Writer Tee Franklin wants to help change this with her forthcoming comic “Bingo Love.” It follows the fictional story of Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray, beginning from the time they fall in love as teenagers in 1963.

Their parents find out and forbid them from seeing each other again. The women lead separate lives, marrying men whom neither of them love. Hazel and Mari reunite at a bingo hall and old feelings surface. They divorce their husbands and live out their truth as a married couple, a light in which audiences rarely see elderly black women. Their love story extends all the way to 2030.

The 80-page graphic novella is one of the first of its kind.

Franklin, who created #BlackComicsMonth in 2015 to promote diversity in the straight white male-dominated industry, said inclusive stories like “Bingo Love” are crucial. She said that sometimes white superheroes aren’t as exciting as representation in comics…

This looks adorable, I would love to read this :3 Representation in so many ways. This is actually what we all need! Thank you Tee Franklin!

I’m glad her crowd-funding was successful so she can bring this to light.

Hogwarts art classes though omfg. Harry and Ron staying up till 4am painting their homework last minute. Harry finding it surprisingly therapeutic and developing a love for art. Hermione having a meltdown because she isn’t the best in the class. Luna would be the Salvador Dali of Hogwarts and just paint the weirdest shit. Draco would have famous expensive art delivered and present it as his own creations. Beautiful.
