depower

Definitely don’t imagine a depowered, almost-human Gabriel, pretending to be fast asleep in the back seat of the Impala in the hopes that Sam will carry him into the Bunker.

Definitely don’t imagine Sam knowing that Gabriel isn’t really asleep, but carrying him in anyway.

Don’t imagine Sam cradling Gabriel to his chest and then laying him carefully down, smoothing the hair off his forehead tenderly.

Don’t.

Things that are clear about Moffits

 - they hate overinvested fans

- they think of themselves as literary geniuses who can break narrative rules (sorry to break it to them but you’re not Laurence Sterne, you’re not James Joyce, you’re not Samuel Beckett)

- they are sloppy writers who rely on sychopants to stroke their over inflated ego

- they queerbait, they get on a pedestal telling a portion of theirs fans that it’s all in their heads and then procede to queer bait even more

- they can’t listen and learn from criticism to save their lives

- they are mysognists who depower women and make them into plot devices (I’m not even, strictly speaking a feminist, but WTF)

- they have zero respect for their characters.

SIT THE FUCK DOWN BECAUSE I’M GONNA TELL YOU ABOUT DAVID ALLEYNE


Have you heard of him? Probably not, but I’m gonna give you fuckers a crash course on this sexy ass motherfucker real quick.

David was always pretty damn smart as a kid (like you probably when you were reading on a college level in elementary school or some shit), but when his mutation got kick started, HE GOT SMART AS HELL. AS IN HE WAS ABSORBING PEOPLE’S KNOWLEDGE RIGHT OUT OF THEIR FRIGGIN HEADS. HE GOT TO THE X INSTITUTE AND THEY GAVE HIM THE CODE NAME PRODIGY BECAUSE HE’S A FUCKING BAMF.

SO, instead of being all cocky and douchey like I’m pretty sure I would be if I had just become a human search engine, HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT HIS KNOWLEDGE IS LEGIT AND BECOMES A GENIUS IN HIS OWN RIGHT.

Flash forward and he’s been a member of the The New X-Men, the New Mutants, AND THE FUCKING YOUNG AVENGERS. He even got depowered by the Scarlet Witch on M-Day and still managed to be a fucking bad ass because realized that he could keep all the knowledge that he had absorbed and has a fucking SUPER BRAIN like PROFESSOR X AND THE BEAST.

Oh yeah, did I forget? HE’S OPENLY BISEXUAL. THAT’S RIGHT. EAT YOUR HEART OUT, FOLKS, AN OPENLY BISEXUAL BLACK MUTANT (he did kiss Hulking, though, scandalous)!

IN CONCLUSION, if you want a sexy, smart, bisexual, genius mutant to follow in Marvel comics, LOOK NO FURTHER BECAUSE THIS GUY IS ALL YOU NEED.

Lucifer x Sam Winchester

When Sam has to stay home from a hunt because of a broken arm, Lucifer goes on his first hunt alone with Dean. Needless to say, the younger Winchester gets a little nervous… 

The feminist critique is in the air now. If my rendition of Black Panther wasn’t created by that critique, it breathed the same air. I can’t really kill off or depower women characters without grappling with Gail Simone. I can’t really think about how women characters are drawn anymore without thinking about the women in Bitch Planet, and how they seem drawn beyond the male gaze.

This is why criticism is important. The job of criticism isn’t to interrupt or encourage commercial prospects. (“Batman vs Superman smashes Box Office, despite critic complaints!”) Criticism should push our imagination and help us understand what is actually possible in art and, I’d argue, even what is moral. Through much of my time collecting comic books I never took much issue with how women were drawn. I had a vague sense that there was something about, say, the reworking of Psylocke that bugged me. But I simply didn’t give it much thought. It never occurred to me, for instance, to ask whether a superheroes pose was anatomically possible. It never occurred to me to ask why a super-hero would have DD cup-size. Was that for her benefit, or for mine? I never asked.

The feminist critique of comics has made “not asking” a lot harder. That, in itself, is a victory. The point is not to change the thinking of the active sexist. (Highly unlikely.) The point is  to force the passive sexist to take responsibility for his own thoughts.

anonymous asked:

Hippolyta once said Kory rivalled Wonder Woman in terms of combat skill. WW is currently considered the best melee fighter in the DC universe, but I think that was stated quite a while after that NTT issue. What sort of skill level do you think she was intended as being? Do you think she’d beat Dick in terms of pure skill (i.e if she got depowered to human levels)? If so, are we talking her being Nightwing/Batman/WW level still? Tbh it’s sad people seem to forget how much a ninja she actually is

For reference: 

[New Teen Titans v1 #13]

I believe that she was intended to be a highly skilled and adaptive warrior that could easily adapt to all forms of combat. As you can see above, Hippolyta tells Raven they’ll see how well Kory handles a battle staff and Kory proves that she’s incredibly skilled because she was instructed in the use of something similar on Okaara:

I absolutely think she could take Dick in a fight if she was de-powered and even though she tends to rely on her starbolts a lot, she’s still a highly skilled fighter. Here’s something that Vic said about her in New Titans:

[New Titans #63]

He says she, Kory, and Raven are the three most powerful Titans and I think this applies to everything about them, not just their power sets. And we can’t forget about the time she beat Donna in Tales:

[Tales of the Teen Titans #42]

Suffice to say, I believe that Kory could definitely be on par with the bigger names of DC Comics but that writers forget/ignore how powerful and skilled she actually is. Hopefully one day, Kory will be able to return to that same skill level with her background as a warrior more fully explored and implemented in her story.

Part 1 for Young Avengers, New Warriors and Avengers Academy Kids

Day 1, March 20

OST (General):Strength
Saitama Prompt: “Until I taste the dirt of defeat someday”
Genos (AU Prompt): No Powers AU [ depowered AU, human AU, etc ]


Saitama still has dreams
He doesnt remember them when he wakes up but it keeps him enthused about the next fight
This thrumming in his nerves
He has a vague recollection of the feeling of dirt under his nails
His whole body being one giant ache

Genos experiences it a little different
Post-fight he always looks sullen, no matter whether he’s won or needed a little help
“Do you envy me, sensei?”
“I’ll drop your arms, I swear,” he says without heat.
“I’m sorry.”
“Don’t worry about it. Enjoy it while you can.” He doesn’t sound bitter, he doesn’t.
Genos looks at him incredulously. “Sensei…” he looks troubled. “That was cruel.”
Saitama hums. They stop walking. He tucks Genos’ disembodied limbs under one arm and tugs Genos in by his waist.

“Sensei look at me.”
Slowly he raises his eyes from the ground, looking up Genos’ inorganic body.
“Tilt your chin up.”
He does and Genos kisses him. “Please wait for me. I’ll become strong.”

He caresses Genos’ broken cheek with a stained glove and tries not to miss the heat and the power behind receiving a good punch.

but what if there was a halloween episode where like… everyone went as the ninja, and Randy manages to lose the mask and a kid dressed like the ninja finds it on the floor like “oh I dropped my mask” and puts it on and suddenly gets ninja powers and runs amok and it keeps getting passed around somehow meanwhile Randy’s depowered and desperately chasing after them,  and mcfist and viceroy are wadding through a sea of ninjas like WHICH ONE IS THE REAL NINJA

anonymous asked:

Imo I don't think Emma will die, I've had a feeling since the beginning that Emma will be de-saviored. They've always been hitting us over the head with Emma's struggle with it, I wouldn't be surprised if she gives the baton to another while she picks her family. That would give the position to another and for Emma to back out. I think killing the main heroine is too dark/GOT like for this show. But depowering her could reboot the storyline in a fresh way.

De-Savioring is certainly an option.

here’s a little sabriel headcanon for all of my friends who need cheering up. I think of it as an equivalent of a hug. so @gabriels-horn-of-truth @greymichaela @synergygabriel @obscuramrose and everyone else, even if I don’t know you, consider yourself hugged <3

Gabriel likes to hold hands. He’d never admit it, but ever since he’d been depowered briefly, he picked up this human habit and not going to give it up any time soon. He remembers it as everything going completely quiet at once, as if he had lost all his senses, and he couldn’t feel the soothing touch of Sam’s soul any longer. He was teetering on the verge of a panic attack, not responding to the world around him, until he felt Sam’s warm hand curl gently around his, squeezing lightly; his reassuring presence steadying him, and he managed to take a deep breath and open his eyes.

Dean and Cas finished it off with the witch that managed to hit him with the nasty spell, and by the time they were done with her, Sam and Gabriel were already curled up together in the back seat of the Impala, Sam not letting go of Gabriel’s hand even for the briefest moment. They drove home like that, and even Dean didn’t say anything (most likely, Gabriel had Cas to thank for that).

In three days that it took Gabriel to get back to full charge, Sam was always right there, by his side, holding his hand. Gabriel would say that it wasn’t necessary, he was just briefly depowered, not paralyzed or something, but Sam would just smile at him, squeeze his hand and turn back to whatever he was doing at the moment (reading a book or watching a movie) without saying a word.

Gabriel was overwhelmed. He would have never thought that so many sensations could be brought to him through something as simple as holding hands. He felt the warmth of Sam’s body seeping through his skin, not letting him get cold. He felt tenderness and affection, the touch of Sam’s hand a constant reminder that he wasn’t alone. He felt calm and, however ironic it might seem, he felt empowered. And he felt love. Oh, so much love.

So yeah, Gabriel likes to hold hands. He’d never admit it, of course, he is a mighty trickster (one of the best there is) and even mightier archangel. But he still remembers how much this simple gesture meant to him when he was human; that’s why he uses every opportunity to hold Sam’s hand.

He has already arranged everything for a perfect date, and he is going to ask Sam to become his bond mate. Gabriel knows that once they are bonded, there won’t be any need to hold Sam’s hand as much, because Sam would be able to feel the touch of Gabriel’s grace all the time, just like Gabriel can feel the touch of Sam’s soul now.

But still, he isn’t going to give up holding hands any time soon.
