Did the singularity happen in Tumbling Together, or will that be addressed later on?
nope, no singularity :) Wont’ be addressed in the fic.
The singularity did/didn’t happen.
I definitely gloss over that in the text itself, largely because I started the fic shortly after the season 1 finale and had no idea what the show was going to do with that. I genuinely thought at the time that they were going to have Barry go back in time by a few minutes and erase the singularity from ever happening because I couldn’t wrap my head around the idea of him causing that much damage and there being a canonical freaking black hole over the city. (Seriously, scientists and military and NASA would all have flocked to Central afterwards, the amount of research investigating the causes of the singularity would be astronomical, pun intended, if this were real life).
So I didn’t want to think about the fallout from that and just… erased it (thinking canon would do the same). You can assume in TT either one of two things: Eddie shot Eobard and not himself, and the wormhole closed fast enough to stop the singularity. Or that Barry ran back in time after getting sucked into the singularity, returned to the point in time at which he came out of the wormhole and didn’t try to stop Eobard from going back to the future; the wormhole closed in time to prevent the singularity from starting.
Both are functionally equivalent in terms of where the fic is at (no singularity and no singularity-damage), but I honestly can’t remember if I ever wrote one or the other as the explanation in that fic. (Whereas in AATJS, I’m pretty sure I explicitly wrote in that Barry went back in time through the singularity, then Eddie shot Eobard and Barry tossed his body into the wormhole aka time stream, leaving it open-ended as to whether he’s fully dead or not).
Just some heart warming stuff for you nerds! I had some dialog planned but i thought it would go better without words. I also wont be posting as much comics after this because im starting school tomorrow. kill me quick
“There is racism in the writing of thousands of words’ worth of dissertation exploring the possibilities of Kylo Ren’s character based on the qualities and story arc that Finn has already shown and whose own plotline is canonically more feasible to what you lot claim as a powerful connection with Rey than the character who is the villain and has done nothing positive for/towards Rey. You lot have blatantly erased Finn’s characterization and actions. This is not isolated in that article. It’s a sentiment repeated continually by shippers that somehow pop-up in the FinnRey, Finn, and other tags. […] You lot are so concerned that you’re being accused of racism and instead of investigating yourselves of the inherent prejudices you might have, you decide to separate yourself from “the rest” which does nothing to quell the problem. Saying that majority of you are not racist does not magically negate r*ylo shippers from baring real-life prejudices that bleed into the consumption and interpretation of fiction. Your intent, no matter how positive you think it is, does not negate the impact of your and your lot’s actions, words, and works, that reek of internalized racism.” - @fakestarwarsfan
