created a hero

A Brief History of Superhero Comics

Golden Age Comics Creator: I created a hero who can fly!

Silver Age Comics Creator: I created a hero who can fly who has real life problems and personal flaws. Oh and there’s  also a talking gorilla! Excelsior! 

70s Comics Creator: I’m going to take an established character, give him a diverse supporting cast and deal with real world issues.  Oh and there’s also kung-fu magic werewolves.

80s Comics Creator: I’m going to take an established character and deconstruct genre tropes while taking a nuanced exploration of dark, sometimes disturbing issues.

90s Comics Creator: Duuuuuude! I made a guy with a robot arm and a giant gun and he’s going to talk about how dark and tortured he is while punching people.  Oh and there’s going to be 8 number one chrome covered holographic foil chocolate dipped covers.  We are going to be so rich!

2000s Comics Creator: All previously established characters are mine to destroy just to show how edgy and groundbreaking my work is.  Any B and C list characters you like are now cannon fodder to be killed and dismembered in gruesome fashion.  The A-list characters will undergo a never-ending cavalcade of suffering until the point they are unlikable psychopaths.  Oh and if you complain about it we’ll just reboot continuity to make things even darker. 

2010s Comics Creator: I made a hero who can fly that’s also a black gay teenager!

Other ones I forgot?

Okay, but imagine if...

Cedric Diggory hadn’t died.

Imagine, just for a moment, that when they take the portkey, instead of an Avada Kedavra, it’s a Stupefy that hits him. Or that the AK misses him by an inch, hits a grave instead, knocks him out for a second.

Imagine that everybody forgets about the Hufflepuff boy out cold on the floor, because they are so intent on resurrecting Voldemort. Peter forgets as he ties Harry to that statue. Voldemort forgets as he is dumped into a cauldron full of flesh and bone and blood. And every death eater that comes sooner or later, well, no one tells them about the boy either - there are more pressing concerns.

However, Harry doesn’t forget. Because Harry has been in that sort of situation since he was eleven. He’s used to looking out for others, by now. Hermione and the Troll, Ron on the chess game, Ginny in the Chamber, Sirius and Hagrid and even Buckbeak- Harry always looks out for everyone, and never forgets about anyone, even if they are not really his friends.

So while he stares in horror, while he’s powerless and sees his greatest foe come back to life, a tiny part of his mind is screaming at him to check on Cedric, to get them out of here. Both. Alive.

Now let’s say that the ceremony, and the Death Eater meeting after the resurrection takes time. Lots of it. Let’s say that Voldemort, being the drama queen he obviously is, takes his time, and enjoys every single second of attention he gets from his followers and that Potter brat.

Let’s say he takes enough time for Cedric to come back to consciousness.

He awakes, lying in the grass and dirt, surrounded by bits of stone, his head aching and confused. The cup is laying about, not too far from him, and he could take it to go back but- he’s a Hufflepuff. He’s loyal. He doesn’t forget either, and that’s why, even if he’s confused about why or how he’s here, he doesn’t take the cup and goes searching for Harry.

Now, the tournament is a vicious thing, isn’t it ? Who’s to say to poor confused Cedric that this is not one more, secret, task ?

So Cedric goes looking, wand in hand, ready to fight, because he’s a Hogwart champion - and really, a Graveyard ? That’s creepy. And because he’s on his guard, and he’s moving around silently, no one notices him creeping behind one of the graves. No one notices the Hufflepuff boy, his horrified expression, and his frantic gaze as he slowly understands that no, that wasn’t a task, and that wasn’t a dream either.

Maybe not even Harry, or maybe he does, but that’s not the important thing.

The important thing is that being in Hufflepuff doesn’t make you stupid at all. The important thing is that Cedric is a champion, and smart, and a quick thinker and a hard worker.

The important thing is that Cedric thinks fast, and casts an ‘Accio’ on the cup as he runs towards Harry while he duels Voldemort.

He breaks through the crowd of amazed and struck Death Eaters, catches Harry’s arm with one hand, and with Seeker reflexes, catches the cup with the other.

Cedric lives, and both Harry and him go back to Hogwarts, terrified, bloody, and flinching away from the sudden noise coming from the public. They both live, and thus no one notices that something is amiss immediately, no one sees their wild glances around - as if someone was still out to kill them. The public cheers, and sings the victory of both Hogwart’s champions, and they are suddenly hugged by their families - the Diggorys and Weasleys.

No one notices, and that’s why when the noise dies down, and someone casts a sonorus on them to ask them how they feel about that victory, everyone hears them say, in a still disbelieving and trembling voice.

“He’s back.”

Obviously, everyone is confused, but they start talking, a bit over each other really, but they are in shock - and they say he’s back, Voldemort’s back, and he took my blood, and we were in a graveyard, and I was knocked out, missed most of the ritual, but it was him, yeah, and there were Death Eaters, in a circle, torturing Harry, horrible, had to get away, he’s back, he’s back.

And that’s when the people notice their faces, the blood, Harry twitching fingers - cruciatus - and their wands still clenched in their fingers, as if ready to attack anyone on sight.

This time, though, Harry doesn’t get ushered away by fake-Moody - because Cedric still has a hand gripping his arm, and wont let go for the world. He tells Dumbledore, and their families, though, when the Headmaster asks them to talk “More calmly and clearly, please, young men” at the Infirmary. Barty Crouch Jr is still apprehended, and the real Moody discovered, and it puts their incredible tale in a new, horrific and real, light.

Imagine if Cedric Diggory lived.

Two witnesses of His return. One is Harry Potter, Hero and Saviour of the Wizarding world. The second is beloved Hufflepuff Prefect Cedric Diggory, Hogwarts Champion. Even if people didn’t believe the first, they would believe the second, and vice versa.

Obviously, the ministry doesn’t take it well, but Amos Diggory and the Weasleys, and Dumbledore make a move together. Susan Bones helps her fellow Hufflepuff by contacting her aunt. Together, they get memory evidence - and they even agree on submitting to truth serum.

Because if Harry alone couldn’t do it - or had no idea he could - Cedric is there, and his father works at the Ministry, and he’s a seventh year. He knows more, and he has people ready to help him - and if he asks them, to help Harry Potter.

Sure, the ministry would try to get all this under the rug, but they couldn’t. Because Weasleys, and Diggorys, and Dumbledore, and Bones, and even Longbottom and soon every name that has a contact in Hogwarts - except some of the Death Eaters - are pushing for the truth to get out, and with a bit of blackmail, Rita helps - and this time, the Daily Prophet can’t repress all of them.

Imagine if Cedric Diggory lived, and how the war would have turned.

Imagine just.

Somewhere in My Dreams

This was made for Rachel as a mock book cover for her fic that she wrote for  the @pjohoobigbang . I’m honored to have gotten to work with Rachel to create this for one of many amazing fics she has written. Huge thanks to @falloutside and @percyyoulittleshit for putting this whole thing together and allowing me to be apart of it. You guys did wonderful, and thank you for all the date extensions. So without further ado, I give you the cover photo for Somewhere in My Dreams, hope you guys like it. 

Okay but honestly I feel really bad for Chiron because like imagine how hard it is for him to see this amazingly heroic kids that he views as kids to grow up and die like…

-Chiron loves his job and being able to help create the future heroes, but he cannot help getting attached to these kids because he has seen them grow up and become this amazing heroes and he is just so proud.

-Like whenever a few heroes comes along he makes this promise to himself that under no circumstance will he allow himself to get attached.

-This always fails, however, once he sees just how brave these kids are.

-Whenever they leave camp he can’t help but worry and he knows that he has trained them to the best of their ability, but still, that has not always been enough in the past.

-When a demigod does an act of bravery, whether its killing a monster or completing a quest, he can’t help but feel proud, and that’s when he knows that once again, he has broken his promise of not caring.

-He is always so heartbroken when a hero dies, and he can’t help but hate how this vicious cycle keeps continuing, however he knows that to not care would be doing an injustice to himself and all future demigods.

I watched the Mummy, and Holy Mother of All that’s Good and Pure!!!

I think the character designs they did for Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V were amazing. Not only did they create one likable hero and heroine BUT they made three other dimensional counterparts. I really wish Arc-V’s ending wasn’t as rushed as it was. They spent so much time in the Synchro Dimension (not complaining per se since I loved 5D’s) but glossed over Xyz and Fusion Dimensions :\

little things i like in BNHA
  • izuku midoriya doesn’t win/succeed all the time but despite that he still improves himself
  • people with quirks don’t always have interests/hobbies coinciding with their quirk (ex. mei hatsume, who has the quirk to zoom with her eyes up to 5 km but she’s an inventor and creates gadgets to support heroes)
  • there are students like bakugou & shinsou who may seem villainous & treacherous due to their quirks or personalities, but they aim to be heroes despite all the criticism
  • the main heroine, uraraka ochako, canonly has a crush on deku but she doesn’t let it get in the way of her goal to becoming a hero. she even states she will “shut them down”
  • the minor characters in BNHA each get their own spotlight
  • the recent manga chapters made it clear that no one is going to be the “chosen one”. not one, not even two but a group of people
  • things like the student kidnappings and the repeated villain break-ins due to U.A’s mistakes aren’t overlooked, but even criticized by the media in BNHA
  • it was made clear that sheer strength and attack power alone isn’t going to help any hero. coordination with those on your side and sympathizing with the victims is essential, and being a stubborn lone wolf isn’t helping anyone
  • a bully and a victim’s relationship can’t be fixed in a snap, but it can be improved if given sufficient time
  • shigaraki does not like stain one bit. just because they’re both somewhat villains, does not mean they will work together
  • endeavour is the no. 2 top hero in the BNHA universe but he is disliked and extremely flawed.
  • we don’t see just the struggles of izuku as a student, but of all might as a teacher too
  • bakugou katsuki’s development doesn’t happen in one snap of a finger
  • all, if not most, quirks in BNHA have a catch. they aren’t perfect, but they can be polished and improved with effort
  • the mentor and inspiration to all might, known to be the greatest hero in the BNHA universe, is a woman
  • testutestu testutestu’s name
  • it’s clear in the latter half of season 1 that’s BNHA’s universe isn’t that sweet. there are people like the villain alliance who seek to rid the world of balance, or stain who despises heroes who only do it for money and go as far as to mortally wound them and kill them.
  • adding from the last bullet, there are people who don’t like heroes. not everyone is accepting of this change, even if it’s widespread and the most focused on aspect in BNHA
  • quirks can alter people’s appearances since birth
  • not only humans can have quirks, but animals too! although it’s very, very rare

I found redemption
in your eyes, in your hands

I’m not the person I was when we first met
I’ve bled and scarred and killed and lost


I’ve played in the darkness of death
and I did not find it welcoming 


But your darkness is protection
Don’t you understand, your darkness creates heroes 


You are the company I always want to keep
your blood runs through my veins 
but you have always sustained me

Sam and Tucker

They hide in the shadows. Yes, the Justice League is made of heroes, but they are still unknown. Sam and Tucker (after getting over the excitement) decide to keep themselves hidden from the League’s eyes.

They are Danny’s hidden support. The ones that trust him even when he seems to touch the darkness. Sam knows his limits. She tells him when to stay home and rest, when to listen to the League, and when to go behind their backs. Tucker learns fast, he can hack any JL system they can create. He does so unnoticed. He is the safety net. He can find what is kept from Danny, and— should the League ever turn against his friend— can create the ultimate blackmail.

All heroes have a contingency plan. They are his.
