sorta crackish prompt, one of those autofill google search interviews w supergirl
It had started innocently enough, a news reporter at the scene of an easily foiled bank heist had waved Kara over with a friendly smile, promising to ask a quick few questions.
Then, suddenly, Kara was in a chair in front of a camera, talking live to anyone with their TV on channel 7. The friendly reporter had settled in, making Kara think that their definitions of “just a few” might be a little different. She didn’t mind though, without her job at Catco, Kara was a full time hero, so maybe Supergirl could afford to do a bit more publicity.
And then there were cards.
“Do you know what these are? Have you seen one of these types of interviews,” The news woman asked politely, holding up a poster with a handful of half covered google searches.
Kara scanned the cardboard, all of the questions had ‘Supergirl’ in the uncovered part. “Oh! This is one of those things where we look at most popular google questions and I answer them, right?”
The older I get, the less inclined I am to think that the people who do bad things are bad people and the more inclined I am to think that they’re just kind of like, afraid and operating from a different system of values that I may not agree with.

a little concerning, but me being me i clicked it because i like keeping myself awake at night
turns out it’s one of the top ten most haunted hotels in america, with two floors in particular having a lot of paranormal activity: the third and tenth. random orbs, shadowy figures in the rooms, the elevators randomly stopping on those floors.
so i was looking up a reference picture of the handmaid for some rp shenanigans, but i wasn’t paying attention and google autofilled my search from ‘the handmaid’ to 'the handmaid’s tale’. curious, i clicked on the wikipedia and read a little about it.
The Handmaid’s Tale is a dystopian novel, a work of science fiction or speculative fiction, written by Canadian author Margaret Atwood and first published by McClelland and Stewart in 1985. Set in the near future, in a totalitarian Christian theocracy which has overthrown the United States government, The Handmaid’s Tale explores themes of women in subjugation and the various means by which they gain agency. The novel’s title was inspired by Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, which is a series of connected stories (“The Merchant’s Tale”, “The Parson’s Tale”, etc.)
Wait. Was that-
