i feel so much for lillian

One of the reasons Supergirl struggled all season is because they failed to juggle far more plot lines than they could handle. And this all came to a head in the finale, because despite all of these plot lines basically none of them paid off.

Jeremiah Danvers and Cadmus? No payoff there. We haven’t seen him since he fought with Hank Henshaw and the only time anyone seems to remember him is in the face of Lillian Luthor.

Speaking of Lillian Luthor? What about the whole Cadmus story line? Not resolved; she still runs Cadmus and it’ll likely still be a problem. But what about her and Lena? Okay, so they worked together to make the lead thing. But we don’t see them at all beyond this. Lena still doesn’t like her (rightfully so) and Lillian really didn’t cause any problems so nothing really came out of them in this finale.

But what about Lena? Like I said, there really was no payoff with her mother. No payoff with Rhea because they didn’t interact all episode. And her friendship with Kara/Supergirl didn’t really have a payoff either. They barely interact in the episode. You can’t even say that it paid off because she made Supergirl that remote. Because A) That could’ve just as easily been Winn’s doing and B) That seemed to more so come from a place of distrusting her mother.

So what about Winn? He helps, but does he really have his own plot? No. His biggest plot all season was Lyra and even though she got a mention this episode, she has been MIA for several.

Well, what about James? If you think James has had any sort of payoff all season, I could laugh at you. He was almost entirely absent from the finale. He’s barely been present for a plot all season to even have a payoff. The whole Guardian plot? I honestly don’t understand at this point. At the beginning, this was a big thing he really wanted to do. But these last few episodes it seems like they’re almost trying to undo this whole plot.

What about J’onn? Honestly, his story arc this season with M’gann might actually be the only one with a payoff. He’s happy to see her again, and he is not at all put off by the white martians she brings to help.

Cat Grant? Honestly, her return was one of the biggest things carrying these last two episodes. Her return was great and helpful to the plot, but because she has been gone it’s not like we’ve been following an arc of hers all season, waiting to see a payoff with her.

Alex? Alex had almost no impact in the finale. Honestly, had she not been in it nothing would’ve changed. And what about her big arcs this season? Her dad and Cadmus? All we got out of that was her distrust of Lillian Luthor which really didn’t affect anything. And Sanvers? They should have left it at “I hope so”. Sure that would’ve been a little disappointing for shippers but Alex’s proposal takes away from her whole arc this season with Maggie. Alex was really learning to grow into herself through this relationship and now it just feels disjointed with a rushed proposal that really doesn’t even make sense. They just said “I love you” like two episodes ago where not much time has passed.

But the lack of payoff that pisses me off the most has to do with Mon-El and Kara. And this really has nothing to do with shipping.

Do you like Mon-El? Then you should probably be pissed that they gave you so much of him all season only to take him away. Don’t like Mon-El? Even if you’re happy he’s gone, you should still be pissed that they spent so much time on him this season for him to wind up completely gone anyway.

So with him now gone, that begs the question of whether or not the entire Daxam plot had any payoff and the answer is no. With them being off of Earth for good, they won’t directly affect the show going forward.

As for indirectly? Mon-El is arguably the only Daxamite that had any impact on every other character, but I don’t think anyone expects Alex or James or Winn to be affected by him being gone.

The only person he was ever intended to impact was Kara. And for what? The purpose of breaking her? People may argue that he developed through Kara all season. But Kara didn’t develop through him all season and guess what? She’s the goddamn protagonist and he’s gone now anyway. So her lack of development all season really shines now.

The scene where Mon-El leaves is all about how “no matter where he ends up he’ll be better because of her”.

And I think that sums up the season pretty well. It’s all about him, not Kara. You can argue that he didn’t grow at all anyway, and really almost none of the characters have. And even if all of that were true, he’s gone anyway so it doesn’t matter. Just like how pretty much every plot of this season doesn’t matter because none of them paid off in anyway.


Lena Luthor Appreciation Week

Day 4 (April 20): Favorite Quote

I picked three because it’s Lena and I can’t pick just one.

2x08 Medusa

(Laughs) You know, that door’s not really an entrance. (Pause) You know, actually, I just- I just wanted to thank you for earlier on. Not only did you save the lives of countless numbers of my employees but mine as well-

Now I need your help.


  • This was possibly one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. She was so flustered here. She was stuttering and using her hands a lot and just couldn’t stop smiling as soon as she saw Supergirl. She had just watched Supergirl get thrown against her L Corp sign and get injured, thus sparking that iconic Very Worried Look™ (that is reserved for the love interest whenever the hero gets hurt, mind you) and what is the first thing Lena does when she sees her again? She thanks her for saving the lives of her employees. She’s such a caring and genuine person. Her life was the only one we saw in danger and she still starts with thanking Supergirl for not letting any of her employees get hurt. I’m curious what she would have said if Supergirl hadn’t cut her off but Lena Luthor was about to do anything Supergirl asked of her.
  • Anything
  • A N Y T H I N G

2x12 Luthors

She [Lillian] wants to see me.

What do you think she wants?

Probably to tell me that my outfit in court was horrible and that I need a makeover.

  • Oh my poor sweet Lena. Did you hear how her voice trembled here? She’s so sure that her mother has called her 12 different times just to insult her. She might have been saying this in a joking manner but the way she said it made me positive that there was truth in it. She said Lillian had been like this since the day she met her. Since she was four years old. Manipulating her. Making fun of her. Making her feel like she was nothing and didn’t belong with them. Lena grew up with someone who constantly put down everything about her, who obviously never loved her, since she was four years old. And I’m pretty sure I started tearing up as soon as she said this.

2x12 Luthors

Don’t hurt her!

  • Three simple words that I just love so much.
  • If she knows that’s Kara, then Lena’s watching her best friend (someone she cares about so MUCH and who actually came for her) getting hurt in front of her eyes by her mother. She’s watching Kara, Kara, writhing in pain on the ground while her mother laughs above her and jokes about hurting her more and Lena’s just begging Lillian to stop because she can’t handle watching Kara being tortured.
  • If she doesn’t know Supergirl is Kara, then Lena’s just revealed how much she cares for Supergirl as well. Not that she wouldn’t care if it was someone she didn’t know but the vehemence behind her words show that she has a personal stake in this. Supergirl is her friend. Supergirl (and Kara) believed in her innocence and came to get her and Lena’s pleading with her mother to stop hurting Supergirl and just like that, a Luthor and a Super show that they are more than their family’s history. They’ve chosen their own paths and it’s one that brings them together, not further apart.
  • And whether or not she knows, Lena tried to fight back in a situation she was essentially powerless in. She saw Kara/Supergirl on the ground and rushed forward to help her despite being between two super-powered men. She had to be held back, thrown to the ground and knocked unconscious but she did all that she could to stop her mother.

A prompt, if I may? :) To celebrate Catco's 20th anniversary, Supergirl agrees to a televised interview with Cat Grant. It's a smash in the ratings, of course, and some viewers notice the chemistry and sexual tension...which leads to some angst and feelings being revealed. :)

“Like forty percent of these comments are about you staring at Cat with heart eyes,” Winn said, scrolling through Youtube comments in the middle of the DEO. “I mean, they aren’t wrong.”

“Winn!” Kara hissed, leaning over him and closing out of the page before J’onn caught him goofing off at work again. He’d already been given several stern talking to’s about it. A pout formed on her face and she crossed her arms over her crest. “I do not stare at Cat.”

“Everyone stares at Cat.” Maggie piped in, leaning back in the chair beside Winn at the console. “You are not an exception.”

“You’re not even supposed to be here,” Kara said, pointing at her threateningly. “You’re supposed to be at work.”

“I can’t believe we’re even wasting time talking about the ‘heart eyes’ comments,” Maggie said, pretending to ignore Kara completely. “Cat spent half the interview trying to act like she wasn’t ready to climb Kara like a tree.”

“I can’t hear you,” Kara muttered, walking away from the two newest annoyances in her life. Not that she could really get away from it; it seemed everyone had something to say about the interview she’d volunteered to give Cat after she’d helped save everyone from the Daxamite invasion. It seemed about the only way she could really thank her for coming back just in time. And it had actually went really well. People had loved it, she hadn’t given away too many secrets about herself or her work at the DEO, and she hadn’t completely embarrassed herself. Or, that’s what she’d thought before people start dissecting every single detail of her interaction with Cat.

Fluffy hc: Kara has never had to worry about being cold and she's never really had to warm someone up so the first time Lena complains shes cold Kara panics and burries her in fluffy blankets and even turns the heat up then realizes how ridiculous it is when Lena looks like she's being suffocated from all of those blankets and just apologizes while Lena just stares. Is she supposed to be annoyed someone finally cares this much or grateful? Lillian didn't give her a handbook to people caring

I feel like there are a lot of ‘human’ things that Kara just doesn’t understand and over reacts on? Like the first time Lena gets sick? or hurt? or anytime Lena complains about anything really. because Kara just wants to fix it?

And at first Lena is a little annoyed, because she takes it as Kara not thinking she can handle herself. but then she realizes that Kara just cares so much. And it scares her at first because no one’s ever cared for her like that. But after a while she realizes that she loves how much Kara takes care of her -that she brings her food when she forgets to eat, that she makes sure she goes home at a decent hour and she just feels so loved!!


Letter to Cyn, 23rd August, 1965 (Their 3rd wedding anniversary)
There were 8 pages originally, but today only the last 2 pages can be seen. ‘Dot’ is Dot Jarlett, their housekeeper at Kenwood while ‘Lil’ was Lillian Powell, Cynthia’s mother (these names are mentioned in the letter so I thought I’d include who they were if some people didn’t know.)
In the letter he states how much he misses and loves her and Julian and how he feels guilty about his behaviour as a Father. This letter is a glimpse of the love he DID have for Julian contrary to the belief from people that he didn’t love him. Perhaps the missing pages were torn up by Cynthia finding them too hard to read? (The smudges on the pages could be Cynthia’s tears? Or even John’s tears as in the letter he claims to be tearing up) Or maybe they just got lost after all of the house moves she did. The pages than can be read say:

…what we said about it. It’s not that much bother really, is it? When you think about it- 'cause I’m sure Dot and Lil’ and Bennis, Tommy, wee Jocky, etc. can understand something as simple as us wanting to be alone for a day- I don’t mean Julian tho’- I mean don’t pack him off to Dots or anywhere- I really miss him as a person now- do you know what I mean, he’s not so much 'The baby’ or 'my baby’ any more, he’s a real living part of me now, you know he’s Julian and everything and I can’t wait to see him, I miss him more than I’ve ever done before- I think it’s been a slow process my feeling like a real father! I hope all of this is clear and understandable. I spend hours in dressing rooms and things thinking about the times I’ve wasted not being with him- and playing with him when I keep reading bloody newspapers and other shit whilst he’s in the room with me and I’ve decided it’s ALL WRONG! He doesn’t see enough of me as it is and I really want him to know and love me, and miss me like I seem to be missing both of you so much.
I’ll go now 'cause i’m bringing myself down thinking about what a thoughtless bastard I seem to be- and it’s only sort of three o'clock in the afternoon, it seems like the wrong time of day to feel so emotional- I really feel like crying- it’s stupid- and I’m choking up now as I’m writing- I don’t know what’s the matter with me- it’s not the tour that’s so different from other tours- I mean having lots of laughs (you know the type hee! hee!) but in between the laughs there’s such a drop- I mean there seems to be no in-between feelings.
Anyway i’m going to go now so this letter doesn’t get too draggy.
I love you very much.
To Cyn
PS Say hello to Charly etc. for me.
PPS I think you can ring me, if you have a phone there try- if not i’ll see you in about a week.

“I want you to have it.”

Lillian frowns, her eyes darting between Madeleine and the stroller. “Why?” she demands. “What’s wrong with it?”

“Nothing! I accidentally ordered it in the black fabric instead of the black melange, and the company refuses to exchange it. Besides, I know how badly you need a stroller, Lilly. I’ve seen the hand-me-down garage sale junker you’re currently using, and I worry that poor Milo will fall right out of it!”

“Are you… Are you sure?” she breathes. “I won’t accept charity, Maddie, and it looks really expensive…”

“I’m positive! It’s all yours. I’ve already bought another one anyway, so if you don’t take it then I’d probably just end up shoving this one into a closet somewhere and forgetting about it. I would much rather give it to a friend who can get some use out of it.”

Lillian studies Madeleine’s face for a moment before bounding over to hug her. “I don’t know what to say!” she exclaims. “Thank you so much!”

“Thank you for taking it off my hands,” Maddie beams.

“How are you feeling?” Lillian asks as she fondly pats her companion’s swollen belly. “Are you ready to meet your baby?”

“I’m ready to not be pregnant anymore,” she replies with a laugh. “My obstetrician says it should be any day now.”

“That’s so exciting!” she sighs. “And you still don’t know what you’re having?”

Maddie shakes her head. “I think it’s a boy, but Westley seems convinced that I’m having a girl.”

“You’re still seeing Westley?” Lillian scowls.

“Yes. I don’t know why I shouldn’t.”

“Because you’re married!”

Madeleine rolls her eyes. “West and I are just friends, and you know it.”

“I know that you two would be a lot more than ‘ just friends’ if you had your say about it.”

“Maybe, maybe not,” she shrugs. “But it doesn’t matter. Westley has made it perfectly clear that he’s not interested in anything more than a platonic relationship. And besides, he’s dating some other woman now anyway.”

Lillian’s eyes widen. “Who is she?”

“I refuse to discuss it, but you can ask him yourself here shortly. We have dinner plans, and I told him to pick me up from your place at six.”

obviously it’s wildly inappropriate to speculate on this count but i’m fifty entries into sylvia plath’s first-year-at-smith diary and she consistently talks about the girls she knows and how beautiful and intelligent they are and how nice their breasts look, and how she wants to have “the life of a willa cather or lillian helman or virginia woolf,” and then spends pages and pages berating herself for “not being attractive to males” and recounting three separate instances where she was trying to forge emotional connections with boys she liked and they kissed her, or felt her up or shoved her hand down their pants and she talks about feeling sick and embarrassed afterward and i just… again it’s inappropriate to speculate but this need she had for validation from these mediocre little boys was already causing her so much tangible distress at such a young age and it’s not fair

Just in case you're taking prompts: Lena, Cat, and Kara. Lena finds out Kara is Supergirl by accident, and is very upset. She bumps into Cat at a glamorous benefit dinner (Kara is there, sad puppy, but they don't talk) and Cat drops some wisdom on Lena that leads her to understand (if not forgive just yet).

Hope you like it!

“It isn’t about trust, you know.”

The voice at her elbow startles her, drawing her gaze away from Kara and to the figure standing at her left.

Cat Grant is standing there, glass of champagne clutched lightly in her fingers.

Lena follows her gaze to see that the other woman is also watching Kara, only without the brooding pout that she knows she herself has.

“I’m sorry?” She raises an eyebrow and fixes the older woman with a disinterested expression - unimpressed with having her musings interrupted.

She came to this party to distract herself; she didn’t expect to see Kara, and she certainly didn’t anticipate having to deal with Cat Grant.

She’s in no mood to deal with conniving members of the media.

But Cat’s face is softer than usual, and the sharp lines that Lena usually associates with the media mogul are replaced with a look of gentle concern.

“It isn’t about trust.” Cat repeats with conviction. “Her not telling you.”

“I don’t have any idea what you’re talking about.” Lena holds, although she’s pretty sure she knows exactly what the other woman is referring to.

Just because she’s upset doesn’t mean she’s going to betray Kara’s secret.

anonymous asked:

So I've been re-watching season 2 of Supergirl on Netflix(I missed the first half when it aired on tv & started the 2nd half) and I was just curious about your thoughts on Supergirl & Lena's friendship compared to Kara & Lena's friendship. I'd like to think that, despite her possibly accusing manner towards Supergirl about Kara/Mon-El dating in 2.22, they are friends. Just perhaps not as openly friendly with Lillian, as she causes a lot of tension. Lena did entrust the remote to Kara after all

Hey there!! I hope your rewatch is going well. I plan to do the same closer to the S3 premier. 

I’ve spoken briefly about my thoughts on Kara/Lena vs. Supergirl/Lena in a few other posts because I truly do feel that there is a difference and that does relate to some decisions Lena has made (in this post I discuss Lena’s decision to save Supergirl not Kara when she had to kill Jack, a scene I feel was wrongly interpreted by a lot of Supercorp hype after Ace Reporter aired).

I do believe that Lena and Supergirl are friendly and do have somewhat of a friendship but from her perspective, it doesn’t even hold a candle to what she has with Kara. In Medusa, Lena shows that she may have a bit of harbored resentment for Supers because of what happened with Lex. 

Of course she understands what Lex is and the horrible things he is guilty of. Like she said, some people are just bad. But I think part of her wonders if Lex really was only driven to that point of madness because of Superman. Lillian certainly seems to believe so and Lena is not someone that sees everything in black and white. So those thoughts could possibly be in the back of her mind. 

On the other hand, Lena has made it clear that she wishes to be judged on her own merits. In return, she has clearly done the same thing. Supergirl knows that Lena is not Lex and Lena knows that Supergirl is not Superman and they share the desire to live and be known outside of the shadow of their predecessors. That is one thing that has led to their mutual trust and respect for one another. 

Kara has had the opportunity to get to know Lena as she really is and of course that has a major impact on her decisions as Supergirl. If they were not the same person, it is safe to say that Supergirl probably wouldn’t have told Lillian that she was Lena’s friend, shown as much faith during the above scene in Medusa, fought as hard to clear her name in Luthors, or cared as much about her being trapped aboard the ship in Resist. In the latter episode, even Lillian knew to appeal to Kara when it came to the matter of getting her daughter home safely. 

So touching on all that, the difference in dynamic mostly lies with Lena, and of course with Kara needing to keep her identity a secret. I previously mentioned how I feel Kara does not keep her secret from Lena due to any lack of trust, but more because of the need to ensure that Lena is protected and her identity remains protected. I have also mentioned the danger they could both be in if Lena knew the truth. Kara already nearly lost her sister because of her identity being known. What would happen to her best friend whom happens to be Lena Luthor? After her conversation with Lillian, I feel it is also quite possible that Kara does feel that she will lose Lena if she found out the truth. 

Lena’s tone when asking about Supergirl’s knowledge of Kara’s relationship shows that she is quite protective of her friend to a point where she came across as slightly challenging to Supergirl. But at the same time, she knows Supergirl is ‘friends’ with Kara so I feel like the question was less antagonistic than some have assumed. In a separate post I talked about Kara’s behavior in that scene as well. 

So again, I do agree that Lena and Supergirl could call themselves friends, just not on the same level that Lena would view her friendship with Kara. The relationship is important to Lena. She respects Supergirl, they have a good rapport, she trusts her. She is willing to work with Supergirl because she knows that she is a good and just woman, just as she strives to be. 

She lives by the advice that Supergirl gave her: Be your own hero. Perhaps she wishes the relationship they currently have to escalate to a higher level of friendship, but for right now, it is what it is. Important – not cherished or loving like things are with Kara. 

In return, Kara plays on that when facing Lena as Supergirl, there has to be that anonymity and ambiguity or she risks Lena knowing everything she has been hiding.

Lena’s childhood

we know that Lena did not have a good relationship with Lillian and we are not given all that much about them and how they raised Lena, so let me disect some of what we know

1) her biological mother is dead, she died when Lena was four, and based on that it can be assumed that Lena has some memories of her biological mother. the first for years of life are the most important in development (that means that a good bit of who she is, is thanks to her biological mother’s treatment of her)

2) from the second she arrived in the Luthor house Lillian hated her, although Lionel did love her in his way, what we know about Lionel is that even at his best he seemed to not be a great parent and due to business was away most times leaving Lena with Lillian

3) we have seen Lilliian manipulate Lena, which is means that as a child there is no doubt that Lillian did the same. Lena was in  a home where her only worth was her intellect so she used that to keep herself a float.

4) she seemed to be closest to Lex, he seemed to be fond of her and accepting, before he went down hill, she had him. we do not know much about the supergirl universe Lex or his previous relationship with Lena so I can not say much more besides his turning evil left Lena broken and alone in a hostile home.

5) I love you, we know that Lillian has made it clear to Lena that she does not love her, so much so that anytime someone will say they love Lena it makes her suspicious. the words I love you have lost most meaning to Lena, she no longer trusts them.

6) Kara, from what we can tell before Kara, Lena never had someone who was not asking for something who was not expecting anything from Lena, Kara became Lena’s family and her protector in many ways not allowing Lillian’s words to hurt Lena not allowing Lena to feel alone


There has been a short hiatus and these were done earlier…I finally got my old pc and internet. here are the characters! Airi, Luca and Lillian (the Elly in the old tags)
The battle scene is wip but more or less that’s it ;)

I’m not at (my own) home atm and actually not feeling very well recently so I have to take a break…tho I enjoyed making the pixel art (a lot!). I’ll work slowly on it if I have time or feel well…The next stage is a fantasy city…hope you’ll enjoy this new project (which doesn’t have a name yet) :D
It’s in the very early stage so there’s not much to report…anyway the plan is to make a casual rpg in a fantasy world ;) Luca is from the same school with Airi and Lillian is a knight :D

And I’ll have to say, to devs and players, take care, take good rest, eat well and drink a lot of water, stay happy. And of course, I hope I can make you guys happy😊

I really hope T'challa fan fiction will skyrocket after black panther. Like, I expect the smut tags and the imagine tags to be filled. I also want the number of black fan fiction writers to go up too.

I really hope so. The Marvel Cinematic Universe introduced such a great character in Civil War and I don’t think enough people really grasped on to that character the way they should have.

People always try to compare him to Tony for whatever reason, and I just think that T’Challa is so much more emotionally advanced, and mentally advanced. He was such a dynamic character with an admirable journey who, unlike Tony, knew when he was doing something unjust and changed it immediately.

I want people to look at T’Challa as a stand alone hero, not just another person for some other (white) character to have feelings for, or have join their group. He’s a leader and should be seen as such. He deserves a sizable following of fans who are uninterested in having him catering to other heroes.

SuperCorp & Sanvers w/ kids

I was talking to @lesbianlena about this and I really gotta make a masterpost of headcanons bc I have Feels™

  • Alex and Maggie would get kids first.
  • Lena wouldn’t want kids bc she’s scared she’d be like Lillian and she doesn’t want that.
  • Kara reassures her that she’d be the best mom bc she’s already a great wife with so much love to give and also she’s seen her with Alex’s kids
  • Sanvers kids LOVE their auntie Lena
  • Lena’s not really comfortable around (Sanvers’) kids at first bc she just doesn’t know how to act around them. But she loves them so much.
  • She buys them something and then they’re like “thanks, auntie Lena!” and hug her for the first time anD LENA JUST MELTS
  • @lesbianlena​: omg imagine them just thinking she’s so amazing and smart??? imagine if alex and maggie had a kid around like 3yo and it’s the time for “but why?” kind of questions and the kid just being so curious and asking about lena about Science and lena being patient and trying to explain as simply as she can
  • She wants those kids to have everything so she spoils them. But then Kara tells her that she shouldn’t buy kids toys that their parents can’t afford. She thinks that it makes Alex and Maggie uncomfortable and also they’re trying to teach their kids to value things other than money
  • Sanvers kids would ofc want to play with guns bc their mommies are their heroes. Lena is horrified and is like “pls let me take them to theater instead”
  • Kids still love guns more, but Lena tried XD
  • OK OK BUT Kara and Lena would adopt older kids, bc those kids have less chances to be adopted and they just really want to give kids their best chances and they can afford to spoil them
  • Kara wants a big, loving family bc she’s used to having one. Lena wants the same bc she never had one.
  • Lena remembers how Lillian tried to buy her love with expensive gifts so she stops with those. She notices that quality time with the fam is all that the kids need :3
  • Their son would eat so much food and Lena would be like “are u sure that he’s not a kryptonian?”
  • Alex and Maggie would take the kids to park at least twice a week. Bc they’re really busy with work but they made a promise not to let that get in the way of their parenting
  • Maggie loves making sandcastles with kids ok this is 100% canon I know this
  • Alex reads them bedtime stories. Or sometimes tells them about her missions as if they were stories
  • Kara just reaaally wants to take all of the kids flying but she doesn’t wanna burden them with that secret when they’re so young
  • ok but what if one of Kara’s kids wants to become a cop, and one of Alex’s kids wants to be a journalist like auntie Kara
  • also one of the kids would want to be a scientist and both Lena and Alex are just so damn happy to have someone to share that with
  • ok but all 4 of them (Kara, Lena, Maggie, Alex) are scared of mama Danvers bc they think that she’s like the ultimate awesome mom and they think that they can’t compare. but Eliza thinks that they’re doing a great job w/ kids
  • Maggie’s parents would also come to visit and maybe babysit the kids sometimes
  • JAMES AND WINN AS UNCLES. just all the piggyback rides tbh
  • Uncle Winn would play games with them 24/7 and James would make them fall in love with photography
  • Imagine how full their house would be at Thanksgiving or Christmas
  • I want James to be a dad, too. Maybe James and Lucy would have a kid? Is that still a healthy relationship? It could be.
  • Ok but gay uncles Winn and Mon-El
  • Family photo with all of them in front of a huge Christmas tree, they’ve never been happier.

pls add more I just love this

anonymous asked:

(Femme anon) I'm much too shy to come off anon lol but I really appreciated what you said and I think a large part of my confusion comes from the fact that I really haven't engaged myself in lesbian narratives and thought about my place in them and I probably just need to take the time to immerse myself in our culture and discover my identity. I think I will pick up a copy of stone butch blues but can you recommend any other books / films etc you feel are essential lesbian / femme reading ? 😙

I’m glad you did and I can!

S/he by Minnie Bruce Pratt is the femme book for me, personally. Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold is classic, and so is the anthology Persistent Desire. Odd Girls and Twilight Lovers by Lillian Faderman for a good, broad and grounding history lesson. Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme is very popular although I personally don’t like it as much as some other things you could grab. Dagger, which I’m reading right now, is phenomenal and incidentally says things about femme that I really love. I liked Surpassing the Love of Men also by Lillian Faderman but it’s been ages since I read it. You could check out Butch, Femme and the Woman-Identified Woman, which is only six pages.

On my to-read list: Lots of Joan Nestle (A Fragile Union: New and Selected Writings, A Restricted Country, Butch-Femme Relationships: Sexual Courage in the 1950s), Femme: Feminists, Lesbians and Bad Girls ed Laura Harris and Elizabeth Crocker, Butch/Femme: Inside lesbian gender by Sally Munt.

I’ve told at least ten people this already in the few months I’ve had the book (and at least ten people told me before I picked it up) but if you’re thinking about femme and can only read one thing it should be S/he! I love it very dearly and it means a lot to me. And if you’re looking for movies you can always check out the Lesbian Film Review. Nothing springs to mind about femme though, hmm, except My Femme Divine which I haven’t seen yet.

I did notice that actually. Since the scene in Luthors, I always argued that Lena most likely sees the white pieces, specifically, the White Knight as a symbolic representation of herself/the light side. She sees it as a representation of what she strives to be in her life.

However, during the scene with Lillian, after she knocks over the pieces, it is clear that Lena has indeed been doubting herself and seeking validation that she can be better than those that came before her. She is aware of her role in the invasion and she is furious about it. She showcases anger and regret and most likely hates that she helped cause something so horrible, leading to the death of so many innocent people – the same people that she has felt a sense of duty to repay for the sins of her family. 

At this point I feel like Lena probably fears that every bit of good she has done or was trying to do has been for nothing because it is overwritten by this grave mistake. So she feels, how can she possibly be the White Knight if she can’t help anyone or be part of the good that she wishes to see.

One thing that I also noticed though. Look what is still standing:

See it? Let’s zoom in and slow down a bit.

The White Knight.

Whether or not this was intentional, we will never know, but it was just something I saw. 

After Lillian picks up the pieces, figuratively and literally, I suppose, she presents Lena with an opportunity. This scene was so much more than Lena finally feeling that Lillian will accept and validate her. Because deep down, she knows Lillian. She may be more tolerant due to Rhea’s betrayal and Lillian’s words. But she is also aware that Lillian’s offer is laced with something else, just as it always is. So now, she sees an opportunity to right this horrible wrong. 

It is not about saving the world for glory or notoriety, or acceptance from Lillian, or even being recognized as the better Luthor. It is about saving the world that she indirectly and accidentally helped put in peril. Another chance to be that good force. A shot at redemption and to help save the city. Which is the reason she came in the first place. Her White Knight’s purpose.

Can we either (1) pretend imprinting doesn't exist in this au or (2) imprinting exists but it's more of a post-two consenting adults getting together Magical Relationship Bond? Also, Carey and Lillian as werewolf girlfriends who are treated much better by the narrative then Leah was by SMeyer.

lets like……nix it. or make it so that its like a “oh youre my soulmate but i dont feel a weird biological creepy pull toward you” cause that was a REAL weird part of the book and LOWKEY fucked up.

Is so hard to like Lillian because she has hurt Lena so much all her life but at the same time how can you not love her?! Like, as a character? Brenda is amazing and Lillian is too, to be honest. Did you see her smug face in the promo and sneek peak? It's funny because I kinda see Lena in her, or like I see where Lena gets some of her personality. I'm so excited for tonight!

You took the words right out of my mouth love! I feel so conflicted when it comes to Lillian. As an individual, I want love her and love to hate her, you know? She adds something very interesting to the show. Naturally, I cannot stand the idea of how she treats/manipulates Lena and what we know she must have put Lena through during her childhood.

But ugh… she’s such a badass?? And yes, I definitely yelled at that expression.

And I do love her scenes with Lena. They have an interesting dynamic that is so great to see. Katie and Brenda’s chemistry is great and it is even better knowing their fondness for one another and their characters.

~I am so sorry for the delay everyone, life has gotten in the way. I hope you all enjoy this. Thing will be getting tense from here on out for our newlyweds. ohmyjoshiferr and I hope you enjoy this. Chapter seven will be out soon!!


She figured it was just the hormones again. Josh called her, sounding rushed and out of breath, saying he’ll meet her there because otherwise they would both be late.

Her stomach twisted into knots and she was sure it wasn’t because of the baby.Ever since Josh had started the process for producing this film, Jennifer couldn’t remember the name, he had started acting different. Coming home later, more short tempered.

She tried to understand, she really did. Acting was way different but coming home tired and even a little frustrated was never rare.Jennifer’s thoughts were broken when a nurse called her name. “Mrs. Hutcherson?”

“Hi,” She said with a sweet smile. The nurse smiled back, setting some items on a counter beside her. Only when she was about to begin talking again did Josh rush through the door.“I’m here! I’m here.” He said hurriedly, causing a scene. Jennifer’s gaze fell to the ground in disappointment. Josh tried to lift her chin to place a quick peck to her lips but with her hand flat on his chest she pushed him into the seat next to her. “Sit down. We’ll talk about this later.”“I’m sorry,” he mumbled, resting his hand on her thigh.

Jennifer scowled at him, moving his hand from her leg. The nurse had left the room momentarily, leaving them alone for the first time that morning.Before he even had a chance to speak, Jennifer spoke up. “I don’t want to hear your excuse.”“Jen, you know why.”

“Josh,” She fumed, “I just said I don’t want to talk about this, okay? It’s supposed to be a happy day and I would appreciate it if you didn’t go fucking it up for me.”

His jaw dropped. “For you? Are you forgetting that’s it’s my child too?”

“Oh no, I am very aware. Trust me.” She rolled her eyes and her hands gripped the cushioned bed underneath her harshly. Jennifer cut her eyes to him. “It’s your fault we’re in this mess."His mouth shut tight, his anger more than visible from the clenching of his jaw. "You know what? You’re right. This is supposed to be a happy day and I’m not arguing with you.”

“Good,” Jennifer commented, crossing her arms like a cocky five-year old. “I don’t deserve it.”

Josh scoffed loudly, letting almost turn into a laugh. “The amount of shit I’ve had to-”

His rant was cut off by the sound of the door opening once again.Jennifer’s doctor smiled widely. “Hey, you two! Ready to find out if this is a boy or a girl?"Completely caught off guard, Jennifer’s lips twisted into a tight smile. Josh did the same.

"We’re both excited.” Jennifer lied. It was a cover lie but she really was excited. She just wished they hadn’t gotten into an argument. They had both been looking forward to this moment more than anything.“Alright! Let’s get started!”

Jennifer gave a weary smile, suddenly more than nervous about all of this happening. She laid back on the cold, hard table as the doctor readied her equipment. Josh stood on the other end of the room watching silently.Her hands gripped at the sides of the bed again, wishing Josh was right next her now.“Alright.” The doctor hummed, before placing her cold hands on Jennifer’s stomach feeling around. The baby within her kicked eagerly.A quiet giggle slipped from her lips at the feeling. The first time she felt a kick she almost fell on the floor. It was more scary than enjoyable but now feeling the baby kick only filled her with endless joy.“Josh,” the doctor quipped, “Are you not going to stand by Jennifer? Usually the two of you are all over each other."The smile dropped from Jennifer’s lips just slightly. Josh locked eyes with her, searching for an answer.

"I just… um I didn’t- I should um,” He rambled and stuttered not quite wanting to tell the doctor what had happened before. The look in Jennifer’s eyes practically pulled him to her though. He set down his jacket and stood directly next to her. She held out her hand immediately for him to hold and he gladly took it in his. The feeling almost felt like everything was okay again.Josh leaned down and rested his forehead on hers. “I’m so sorry.”

She placed a quick peck on his lips, making up for the one she had denied before. “Later,” She whispered.

Josh nodded. “I know.”

He mouthed. The doctor clasped her hands together and grinned. “Okay, Jennifer. I’m gonna put this jelly on your belly, and we’ll see the sex."Jennifer giggled again in excitement, squeezing Josh’s hands just a little bit tighter.

“That rhymed- oh!” She jumped at the cold gel on her skin.The pair watched the screen with anticipation as the doctor moved the camera across Jennifer’s belly.

"Okay, it looks like,” She said narrowing her eyes. “You’re having a girl!"They were both speechless with happiness. Jennifer’s lip quivered just slightly, tears pooling up in her eyes; almost like everything really just hit her for the first time. She looked up at Josh to see his eyes slightly glossed over as well, never batting an eye away from the screen.

"That’s our girl,” Josh said kissing Jennifer’s temple. “You were right all along.”

Her hand covered her mouth in disbelief squeezing his hand impossibly tight.“Oh my god!” Jennifer exclaimed. “She’s so tiny.”

Josh and Jennifer continued to watch the screen as their little one moved.“I know,” He responded in awe.Josh looked over at Jennifer, who had a few tears trickling down her cheeks. “I love you, Jen.”

“I love you so much,” She smiled, her cheeks beginning to hurt from grinning so hard.

“Congratulations you two!” The doctor says after cleaning up Jennifer. “Let me get these printed and you can be on your way. I’ll see you in two weeks.”

As soon as she walked out of the room, Jennifer slipped off the the bed and crushed herself to Josh. Her baby bump got in the way just a bit but he pulled her even closer, leaning his forehead on hers.“Jen, I’m so sorry,” he mumbled. “I know,” She sighed, “But you made it. That’s all that matters."He tried to apologize again, but Jennifer stopped him with her lips. It wasn’t much; just a gentle touch of her lips to his but needed in every way."We’re having a little girl,” She whispered in awe, smiling against his lips.Josh nodded. “No dating till she’s thirty.”

“Relax. We’re not even thirty yet.” She laughed quietly.“Not much longer,” he joked back. It became quiet between the two of them.

“We’re good right?"She nodded wordlessly but it wasn’t a lie. Everything had to be good. She couldn’t imagine going through this without him.


"Josh! Come here! Quick!” Jennifer called from the living room, where she sat on the couch. She could hear his rapid stomps down the stairs, almost laughing at the terrified look on his face as he reached her.

“What? Are you okay? Is the baby coming?"Jennifer held her head back and laughed. "No! But you have got to feel this!” she said, beckoning to him with her arms.“Shit,” He sighed in relief, pausing a minute to catch his breath. “You can’t scare me like that.”

Jennifer pouted. “This is important.”

“I’m coming. I’m coming.”

He walked over to her, her body sprawled across the couch and reaching her arms out for Josh.Jennifer grabbed his hand and pressed it to her stomach. “Wait for it."As soon as his hand was pressed firmly against her skin, he could feel the fluttering of light kicks. His heart grew about ten sizes.

"Someone’s excited,” He smiled, sliding next to her to put his lips against her stomach instead. He still felt every little kick.“Yeah, well I’m excited to get her out,” Jennifer groaned yet she couldn’t keep the grin off her face. It was such a weird feeling but she couldn’t get enough of it. “Only three more months.” ’ Josh thought, but that isn’t what his mouth said. He didn’t want to let Jennifer know that he alone was also irritable.It was a lot for them to handle so there was no doubt there would be unnecessary arguments but sometimes it really did feel like too much.

But then moments like this contradicted every bad thought.“What do you think about Lillian?” Jennifer said, breaking his thoughts.

“I think I like it."Jennifer grinned, resting her hands on her bulging belly. "You pick the middle name.”

“I think we have to go abstract like the rest.“

"Josh, I swear-”

“What?” He asked with an amused smirk.

“If you suggest any color, fruit, or direction to name our child I’m kicking you out."Josh laughed.

"What about Apple?” He asked, just to see her reaction. She slapped his arm and rolled her eyes. “Oh god, stop it.”

“Don’t you think Lillian Apple Hutcherson sounds good?” Josh asked, laughing.

“It’s sounds like a damn Yankee-candle scent.”

Josh raised an eyebrow. “Yankee-candle?”

“Yes, Yankee-candle. Point is we’re giving our child a normal name.”

“Normal?” Josh quipped. “Like, Lillian Julia Hutcherson?"Her expression softened, her lips in something of a sad smile.

"Josh, that’s so pretty.” She began to bite down on her lip to stop the unnecessary tears that were ready to flow.He groaned.

“Don’t cry, Jen."She immediately scowled and wiped her tears. "Shut up. It’s not my fault."Josh rolled his eyes.

"I know, I know, Jen. It’s my fault. I am the one who knocked you up.”

“That’s not what I said.”

“But that’s what you meant.” Josh deadpanned. She turned to lock eyes with him. She didn’t know where this sudden tension came from but she wouldn’t let it go unresolved.“What the hell just happened?” Jennifer asked, raising up to face Josh.

“You tell me.”

“No,” She stated, “I’m supposed to be the moody pregnant one. Not you.”

Josh sighed, resting his head in his hands. “I’m sorry. I’ve been really worked up lately about this movie and I’m taking it out on you; which is wrong. We start casting tomorrow and filming location is in Sacramento.”

Jennifer’s eyes widened. Sacramento? “That’s over five hours away, Josh."His expression softened, casually brushing his fingers across her shoulders to get her to relax.

"I know but it’s not my decision. It was the best option we had without going too far out of the way.

"Jennifer pouted, her lip quivering. "But what if something happens and you’re not here?"He slid down on the couch so he fit snugly into her side. Normally it was the other way around but the baby had switched things up between them. Josh rested a hand upon her baby bump, gently tracing invisible designs upon it. He could feel the baby start to kick again and it brought a smile to his face. He couldn’t believe they had even made it this far.

"Nothing is going to happen,” He promised, “I swear it."She looked up at him, tears brimming her eyes.

"You don’t know that.”

“Don’t think that way, baby,” He whispered, pressing a kiss to her forehead. Jennifer couldn’t explain how she felt, but something inside her made her stomach twist.
