“So rule number one, never, ever give me the "a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do” speech before you strap on your six-guns and leave me back at the ranch with Ida the prune-faced android. Two, you don’t crack my boyfriend’s skull. And three, you don’t date my roommate. Got it?“

Favourite Fictional Females Tag Meme

Pidge Gunderson/Katie Holt from Voltron Legendary Defender

Originally posted by sodiumpidgeide

Stubborn, sarcastic, and highly intelligent, Pidge goes after her goals with a  single-minded determination. She might be small, but you don’t want to underestimate her, she is both physically and verbally capable of wrecking you.

Haggar from Voltron Legendary Defender

Originally posted by southernraiders

She’s a magical mad scientist and the power behind the throne.

Temari from Naruto

Originally posted by doujinshi

Can and will blow you away. She’s tough, but she still has a soft side when it comes to her brothers and (sometimes) Shikamaru.

Eve from Black Cat

Eve can transform parts of her body using the nanobots in her bloodstream. In the manga she has a really great character arc, growing from an emotionless girl with only the most basic uses of her power to an absolute powerhouse of a sweeper.

Reyna from Heroes of Olympus

My favourite part of The Blood of Olympus was Reyna and Nico working together to get the statue back to Camp Half-Blood. Reyna has a really interesting set of powers. The book also gave us a closer look at her tragic family circumstances. Her relationship with Nico was adorable too.

Momo Hinamori from Bleach

Originally posted by puff-chibi

Most underutilised character in the whole manga, and that’s really saying something. Hinamori has ties to the main villain and she’s important to the emotional stability of one of the captains. She’s also stubborn but sweet, and skilled enough to make vice-captain.

Franziska Von Karma from Ace Attorney

Originally posted by aceprotorney

An absolutely ruthless prosecutor who is apparently allowed to bring a whip to court. Has a soft side buried deep…very very deep.

There are loads more, of course, but I’m lazy.

throne of glass: who’s your favourite female fictional character?
oh shit i cant decide,, they’re all so completely badass and independent and amazing and beautiful

I have a confession to make.

Dragon Age Origins was my very first RPG experience, I had absolutely no idea what roleplaying was, how it worked and how my choices affected my companion’s decisions and so on. I rushed through Origins and Awakening because I was eager to start Dragon Age 2 (which was newly released at the time). Still inexperienced with the genre, I made most of my choices at random in the couple first playthroughs resulting in Isabela fleeing with the tome of Koslun in act II. I really hated her for that. But by the third playthrough I was starting to understand how the game worked so I was more careful in my choices, I was surprised when she returned with the tome. And throughout act3 I got to know her better, listening to her banter, her reaction to various events and her personal quests, and later on learning more about her background from “Those Who Speak” I grew to love her character. Now she’s at the top of my list of favourite fictional female characters, right next to Miranda Lawson (ME2) and Lagertha (Vikings).

It’s a long story but I’m glad I learned instead of continuing to hate on her. 

p.s.: jewelry and outfit are not accurate, this was drawn without a reference.

Just a Friendly Reminder: Strong Women Can Have Love Too!

Why is it whenever you ship a ‘strong’ woman with someone, you are suddenly ‘anti-women’? Why does shipping someone with a lead character automatically mean you want all of her stories wrapped up in that pairing? As if she can only have a good story or a good romance. Please explain to me why can’t she have both!?!?! Why does it have to be one or the other? Why can’t she kick ass during the day and still come home to a nice piece of ass at night? Explain to me why wanting a well rounded character who is fulfilled in all aspects of her life is ‘anti-women’?

While you’re at it, explain to me why this happens so often to women of colour? Why is it whenever you pair a WOC with the leading man, her ‘strength and independence’ are all of a sudden in jeopardy? But the same people so worried about the ‘strong woman who don’t need no man’ are gushing about pairings with white women? What happened to all your righteous feminist ramblings all of a sudden???

And this argument that said woman is somehow ‘too good’ for said man is equally insulting. You really need to stop putting WOC on these pedestals like they have just evolved beyond all human flaws and vulnerabilities. “She’s just so strong and capable, she doesn’t need to be with anybody.” No one should need to be with anybody, but that doesn’t mean she can’t want love and companionship. And again, where is all this ‘feminist’ bravado when it comes to the white women???

No one wants to see women reduced to extremes where they’re either a strong, flawless badass who is an island of emotion or a codependent damsel in distress who revolves around a man. Neither one of these scenarios is a feminist ideal and neither one of them is particularly healthy or realistic. There is a happy medium, whether you ship her with someone or not.

If you’re a <insert character here> fan and you don’t ship <insert ship here>, cool. No one’s making you ship anything you don’t want to. But understand that we are also fans of the character and shipping does not lessen that in any way. We can want compelling stories for our favourite character while supporting a ship at the same time. These things are not mutually exclusive. If you’re not a <insert character here> fan and just don’t like <insert ship here> getting in the way of your ship, too damn bad? We actually like said character and we want them to be happy so come off it and leave us alone.

Just stop trying to guilt trip shippers for celebrating all sides of a character’s story, especially strong independent woman of colour. Stop telling people who ship ‘strong capable women’ with a leading man that they are ‘anti-feminists’. Stop telling people who enjoy shipping that they aren’t ‘true fans’. Stop implying ‘strong and independent’ women can’t have it all. We can and we do and we can want the same for our favourite fictional females.

Got it? Good.

Wait other wlw experience the "all my favourite fictional characters are females" thing too? Oh wow I thought I was the only one! I always rooted for the women on any quiz shows I watched too, thinking at the time that it was a girl power thing. Anyone else do that?
