Tonight’s update: Act 4.

The main door clanged shut and Cat glanced up from her book, curious to see Alex Danvers striding toward her cell. Alex was white as a ghost, setting Cat’s own nerves jangling. “What’s wrong?” Cat demanded, slipping off her glasses. Alex stopped and used her thumbprint to open the door. “Is it Cadmus? Did you find something?”

Getting to her feet as the door swung open, Cat realized Alex was trembling. Worse than Cadmus meant only one thing. “Is it Kara?” If those bastards had struck out at Kara, Cat would go back and kill them herself.

Alex grunted in dismissal. “Did you remember anything else?”

Cat tilted her head, watching the agent shrewdly. “I assume you’re after something in particular.”

Motioning to the bunk, Alex indicated Cat should sit as she began to pace the small confines of the cell.

Cat observed her, noting the dark circles under her makeup. Something was keeping Alex Danvers up at night.

“Has Kara ever talked about our family?”

“She said they died in a fire. I assume they technically did,” Cat added quietly. Knowing what she did now, pieced together with parts of Superman’s lore, more of the story made sense. Each realization weighed on her as she built the whole narrative, and left her all the more stunned Kara was still so optimistic.

“Not her birth parents. My family.”

HEY YOU GUYS so I’m doing an experiment. My friend says that movies are way better than books because you can remember things better and you can’t imagine all the things from the movie. I disagree, and I think that books are better than movies because you absolutely can do all of those things with books. Like if you think that movies are better, reblog if you think that books are better.

Sometimes we get sad about things and we don’t like to tell other people that we are sad about them. We like to keep it a secret. Or sometimes, we are sad but we really don’t know why we are sad, so we say we aren’t sad but we really are.
—  Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

 05.16.2017 | 001/100 Days of Productivity | I’m 20 years old and a book nerd, and yet … I have never read Harry Potter (preposterous!, I know). As of two days ago, I asked my sister to borrow her books, and here I am now, half way through The Chamber of Secrets 💫

After being locked inside today because of the snow storm I decided to paint. I picked random pictures on google and whipped out my old watercolor paint and I have to say it was a lot of fun. I haven’t touched my phone in hours.


chumps: get rid of this book!

“want and need were words that got eaten smaller and smaller: freedom, autonomy, a perennial bank balance, a stainless-steel condo in a dustless city, a silky black car, to make out with blue, eight hours of sleep, a cell phone, a bed, to kiss blue just once, a blister-less heel, bacon for breakfast, to hold blue’s hand, one hour of sleep, toilet paper, deodorant, a soda, a minute to close his eyes.”
