ENG: 

☆ DisabilityFest 2017 ☆

VI: The Lovers:   Love, union, relationships, values alignment, choices

Harleen Quinzel AKA Harley Quinn- Histrionic personality disorder and schizophrenia 

Pamela Isley AKA Poison Ivy - Seasonal Affective Disorder


-“ Now, aren’t you glad you didn’t bury me under your greenhouse? ”-

This card was a bit harder ‘cause I couldn’t think of a couple that had canon disabilities AND were good representation. So I dropped “good representation” and chose this girlfriends. (Blindfold and Legion from Marvel were the runner ups) 

[Description: an inked drawing of Poison ivy and Harley Quinn from DC comics, as The Lovers. They are standing facing each other, joined by vines. Pamela is wearing a long dress and has long curly hair. Harleen is bowing and winking, holding softly onto the vines. Behind them there’s a river, and mountain. An angel floats above them, and two trees frame them.s.]

☆ DisabilityFest 2017 ☆

VI: Les amantes:   amor, union, relaciones, valores alineados, decisiones 

Harleen Quinzel alias Harley Quinn- trastorno histriónico de la personalidad , esquizofrenia 

Pamela Isley AKA Poison Ivy - trastorno afectivo estacional

-“ Ahora, ¿no te alegra no haberme enterrado bajo tu invernadero? ”-

Esta carta se complicó un poco porque no se me ocurría ninguna pareja de personas discapacitadas que fueran buena representación… así que bajé lo de”buena representación” y elegí a estas novias. (Blindfold yLegion de Marvel eran mi otra opción)

[Descripción: un dibujo en tinta de Poison Ivy y Harley Quinn de DC comics, como les amantes. Se hallan cara a cara, conectadas por vides. Pamela tiene el cabello largo, y está usando un vestido. Harleen está haciendo una reverencia, y guiñando un ojo, agarrando suavemente la vid. Detrás de ellas hay un rio y unas montañas. Une angel flota por encima de ellas, y dos árboles las enmarcan .]

Disability Fest ; Kaz Brekker, Six of Crows

He’d broken his leg dropping down from the rooftop. The bone didn’t set right, and he’d limped ever after. So he’d found himself a Fabrikator and had his cane made. It became a declaration. There was no part of him that was not broken, that had not healed wrong, and there was no part of him that was not stronger for having been broken.

DisabilityFest 2017: Yusei Fudou from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds || post-traumatic stress disorder

“But they still regard me as their friend! They smile at me without saying a word! What am I supposed to do? How am I supposed to atone for them?

[Description: Picset of 6 pictures of Yusei, including him watching Kiryu’s arrest, being held by guards at the detention center, talking to Aki’s father, during the final fight with Rudger, fixing a D-Wheel, and from Bonds Beyond Time.]

Question that’s been bugging me on and off for, like, three years:

When Beren comes back from the dead, how many hands does he have???

Because the actual process of reembodying Beren, as a human, is super obscure and glossed over. The closest we get to specific detail is that Luthien ‘[took] Beren[‘s fea] with her’ on her return to her own body, which definitely implies he’s still in his original body, but I would question then why it hadn’t rotted? I’m utterly willing to believe that Luthien’s didn’t, since, well, Elves (and also precedent, with Miriel, although one could argue that’s a Valinor thing), but… just how fast was this process? She had to cross the ocean as a spirit, convince Namo Mandos to make an exception to a natural law made by Iluvatar (by way of making him feel sorry for her, which, aside from when she did it, appears to be literally impossible), and then travel back across the ocean as a spirit – we’ll assume Beren could just tag along with her and she didn’t need to transport him. Like, considering how long the crossing takes when you have a body, and allowing for faster travel as pure fea… I’d still estimate at least a week (three days there, one day to convince Mandos, three days back).

So… either some Maia or other is sneakily doing a last-minute switcharoo with Beren’s corpse and a shiny new Beren-body they made, or – well.

Option A means that they made him a brand new body. Does it have two hands? Is it based on pre-Carcharoth Beren or post-Carcharoth Beren? Or is it, I don’t know, based on eighteen-year-old Beren or something? I mean, there’s no commentary of anyone thinking he looks different, so it’s probably within the last few years or so, but there’s no further discussion of his hand in the Silm ever, and it’s at least within the realm of possibility that his new body matched his old one.

Option B, even if Luthien (or Melian, more likely) somehow managed to decomp-freeze Beren’s body, still at the very least means that Mandos or someone is repairing the damage done to it that, you know, caused him to die. (And probably a certain amount of decay too. Sorry! It just seems likely, okay??) So they’re fixing his injuries. Does that include the missing hand? It’s not from the same encounter, and it’s probably healed over, but it’s also a Carcharoth-inflicted wound, and it’s also entirely possible it just seemed like the thing to do, you know, replace his hand.

I’m basically at a point where I’m completely convinced that it’s very possible Beren got his hand rebooted, but not actually convinced either way as to what’s actually the case and the upshot is, whenever I picture him post resurrection I have no idea how many hands he has help.

anonymous asked:

can you write an autistic!Fitz fic where he builds himself the perfect autistic sensory room with his autistic engineering skills

Three of a Kind 

sequel to the Caroline fic 

another anon asked for autistic Jemma set in the Caroline verse 

and here’s the page on atypical autism jemma is reading 

happy @disabilityfest everyone! 

~2600 words 

read on ao3 


The front door opens and closes, and before Jemma can call out she hears, “It’s just us!”, so she settles back against the couch. There’s the patter of little feet, Fitz saying “Your shoes-! Oh, alright,” and then Caroline is crashing onto the couch beside Jemma.

Jemma smiles, setting her laptop on the end table. “Darling, did you take your shoes off like daddy asked you to?”

Caroline twiddles her fingers, not answering, but she lifts her legs to display the two bright blue tennis shoes still on her feet.

“How about you go back to daddy and have him help you take those off?”

With a pout, Caroline pulls herself off the couch and slumps back toward the foyer. Jemma can hear Fitz talking, but she can’t make out what he says, before Caroline makes her way back to Jemma and pokes her in the knee.

“Fishy is hungry,” she says, still pouting.

“What would you like to eat?” (Jemma doesn’t know why she asks, she’ll always get the same answer. She supposes it’s just to let Caroline feel like she’s making decisions.)

“Fish food.”

“Do you want it in water?”

Caroline shakes her head.

Jemma gets up, makes her way to the kitchen, and pours Caroline a bowl of plain Cheerios, no milk. She squats down so she’s on eye-level with the four-year-old.

“How about you take this up to your playroom so that I can talk to your father for a little while? That sound good?”

Caroline takes the bowl and dashes away, thundering up the stairs.

That’s when Fitz enters the room, tossing Caroline’s backpack on the table and then coming over to give Jemma a peck on the lips. “Enjoying your day off?” he asks.

“I’ve been doing research.”

“So, that’s a yes,” he chuckles.

“I—” Jemma’s thumbs run over her fingers. “I actually wanted to talk to you about something.”

“Oh.” Fitz’s eyes flick over her face, not staying in any one spot for too long. He backs up and leans against the table, crossing his arms. “Good something, or bad something?”

“Good something, I think.”

Fitz relaxes, face falling into something relieved. “Oh, good. Shoot, then.”

“I think I’m autistic.”

Fic Recs featuring Canon Disabled Characters

What the Deaf Man Heard- Clint Barton (Hawkeye)

 Clint doesn’t have superpowers. He doesn’t control lightning, he doesn’t have super strength, and he most certainly was not a genius. But he’s discovered that as long as his hearing aids are in, people will assume a lot about his ability (or lack thereof) to hear what they are saying.So he runs with it.


Sunshine- Daredevil (Matthew Murdock)

This is how it is: the world goes down the toilet, aliens start dropping from the sky, and the oceans die all at once. Everything is poison and the poison is everywhere. What’s left is nothing but echoes in the dust.

Despite all that, there they were—a co-dependent ex-lawyer-slash-doctor, a woman who cut out her own emotions with a knife instead of having to feel them, and a blind lobotomized ninja who couldn’t put a sentence together to save his life.

Family is what you make it.


A New Lust For Life- Long John Silver

High school AUJohn Silver is enrolled into Maria Aleyne College by his foster parents, to give him a sense of structure and healthy socialisation.Trying his best to fly under the radar, John accidentally falls for the guy in his Advanced English class. The only problem is that he’s got a boyfriend.


None So Blind- Matt Murdock (Daredevil), Clint Barton (Hawkeye)

They say when you assume you make an ass of you and me.

Matt wishes that the Avenger’s assumptions about his seeming inability to read the written word did something as benign as making an ass of him and them. Being called illiterate shouldn’t hurt, not when he knows he’s not, and it’s not like he can tell them the truth.

Not that the truth would make much difference. He’s just going to have to grin and bear it.

If he can.

in honor of disabilityfest, please have this quick and crappy mockup of my lovely dnd character teija tadadek! a mountain dwarf cleric and priestess of Asase Ya, she is chaotic good and she has nonverbal learning disability and depression! 

as someone with nonverbal learning disability, i have never seen a single character with it ever anywhere (i can barely find people who have it) so i went out and created my own representation in the form of my dorky dwarf cleric.

Drew these two possible character ideas for the 2017 disability fest ( @disabilityfest for anyone who wants to check out their blog). They were drawn on July 1 while camping, and now finally have time to post them with photos.
The left photo is a concept for a wizard born without a right arm who learned magic partially to use the spell mage hand as a magical prosthetic. The right is a druid who lost her left leg in an accident and grew herself a living prosthetic.

DisabilityFest 2017: Ian Gallagher from Shameless || bipolar disorder

“Too much is wrong with me, and you can’t do anything about that. You can’t change it - you can’t fix me because I’m not broken. I don’t need to be fixed, okay? I’m me!”

[Description: Picset of 6 pictures of Ian, including some pictures of him working as an EMT, one of him kissing Trevor, one of him in a suit, and one where he’s talking to Lip.]

Oracle would probably be a one-woman machine battling the forces of ableism and the lack of support for disabled heroes in the DCU, wouldn’t she? She has eyes everywhere and the network to provide the support that few other people seem to have noticed. 

When an autistic teenager with latent meta powers is bullied into a fit that winds up causing massive property damage and gets him put on trial as a “supervillain”, Oracle deputizes Kate Spencer to take over his defense, totally dismantle the smug Prosecutor trying to ruin the kid’s life, and then makes sure he gets the assistance he needs to manage his powers and use them for good. 

When a deaf superheroine starts making waves and proves herself to be one of the world’s best new heroes, but the JLA doesn’t seem to have noticed yet because reasons, Oracle hacks their servers to add a sign language tutorial for all the members and then strongly hints that the fastest learner should give her an interview. 

When a prominent young heroine breaks her neck in a freak accident that leaves her paralyzed, Oracle hacks all the gossip websites and gives them false leads as to which hospital she’s at, ensuring that she can heal in peace. She keeps in touch with her through rehab and makes sure she’s set up with the software and assistive technology she needs to apprentice under Oracle and join the network, if she wants. 

When an iconic superhero begins acting increasingly erratic after one of the major cosmic battles that nearly ends the world, endangering himself and others, Oracle gets Bruce Wayne to communicate to his newspaper holdings that they should knock off the ableist headlines about this hero “going crazy”, and instead ensures that the hero is provided with proper PTSD counseling before a tragedy occurs. 

Oracle seeing all the systematic ableism and lack of support for disabled metas and heroes who become disabled, and shutting that shit down.
