anonymous asked:

I mean, I basically have to say Quill.

general opinion: fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess | like them! | love them | actual love of my life 

hotness level: get away from me | meh | neutral | theoretically hot but not my type | pretty hot | gorgeous! | 10/10 would bang

hogwarts house: gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff (okay we all know this bitch is too fucking complicated to fit into any of the houses GOD KNOWS WE HAVE TRIED but if I absolutely had to pick I would say Hufflepuff because loyalty is her main trait, and while she isn’t nice, she is kind in her own way - plus in the actual verse she would pick Hufflepuff bc close to kitchens so yeah, the saltiest Puff out tbh but really just the weirdest hatstall ever)

best quality: ooooooh I mean, I have to say her resilience, probably? she lived through years of oppression and then a revolution/war where she became the leader and still didn’t die, and then she survived months of being a slave while cut off from her most fundamental belief/way of life/essence of who she is, so yeah, she’s so fucking strong, and I’m really proud of her tbh

worst quality: I mean she has very questionable morals like I get she always had a good reason or what she considered a good reason but BLOWING PEOPLE UP IS BAD QUILL also she’s so thirsty like goddamn Quill find a drink of water seriously (who am I kidding, it’s hilarious, never change babe)

ship them with: Dorothea, Ballon, Missy (under certain circumstances, the ship gets less and less plausible the more you think about it when you realise just how much Missy stands for everything Quill has fought against), mainly the maths teacher OC I made when I desperately needed someone to hug her and canon was giving me nothing, 236k is a lot of time to be very emotionally invested

brotp them with: Matteusz, Tanya, Charlie in what I call a “wtftp” kind of way because their relationship is impossible to label

needs to stay away from: anyone who wants to take her freedom away again like seriously let her be HAPPY FOR ONCE IN HER LIFE jfc

misc. thoughts: why did my favourite character of all time, who feels specifically catered to what I look for in a character (and no I’m not just talking about the fact that she’s hot and I’m gay, I mean her whole personality and backstory and demeanour, it feels like Patrick Ness looked into my head and created her just to cater to my interests), have to exist in a show that only like 20 people care about, it’s not FAIR

send me a character!

“I wanted everyone to be able to relate to [Diana], not only women but also men, not only girls but also boys because at the end of the day you can’t empower women if you don’t educate men about [women’s empowerment]. As far as Diana concerns men and women are the same and I think that was a smart decision because once you don’t make a big deal out of it and then you just show how weird this is when people make a big deal out of it: ‘Oh you’re a woman so you can’t get in the Parliament, you’re a woman so you can’t vote’ and you’re like ‘What?!?’. Diana was the ‘what’ and I thought it was very refreshing and the smartest way to show that we should be equal, that we are equal. ”  – Gal Gadot

no wonder solange performs in museums. that’s performance art, her songs are art, and the fact that they’re performed in museums is also a statement. she said herself she wants to make space for black people to be avant garde. she wants to send that message and is so intentional about it, and it’s such an important mission on its own too. like yes, black people are avant garde. black people are art.
