i love the war doctor so much

Don’t get me wrong, I want new lore just as much as the next person. But for me, seeing lore we already know brought to life is wonderful in itself.

Like, I had no real concept of just how tragic and inspiring Mei’s background story is. Watching her mourn the loss of her friends, then be filled with hope under the Aurora and set off across the Antarctic to help save the world, it gave her character so much more depth, and I love that.

Honestly.

Give me Angela Ziegler losing her parents in the face of war and deciding there is still good in humanity by training to become a doctor.

Give me a young Hanzo Shimada being told by the clan elders that he must kill his own brother, and the heartbreak as he stands over Genji’s lifeless body.

Give me Genji Shimada’s thirst for revenge as he wipes out the entire clan that rejected him, all while he is struggling to accept his new body.

Give me Zenyatta taking Genji under his wing and teaching him to love himself again.

Give me Gabriel Reyes leading humanity to victory, fighting side by side with his best friend in the Omnic Crisis, only for him to be cast aside when Jack is given the role of Strike Commander.

Give me seventeen year old Jesse McCree giving up all hope in a small jail cell on Route 66 when a stranger walks in and gives him another chance.

Give me Hana Song being thrown into stardom, then put on the frontline to fight for her country - all when she is nineteen.

Give me a young Satya Vaswani being plucked from the slums to become one of the best Architechs Vishkar has ever seen.

Give me Lúcio Correia dos Santos, international star, using his fame to rally together his fans and fight for the freedom of this world.

Give me Fareeha Amari learning of her mother’s death and the grief that fills her as she beats herself up for drifting apart from the woman who raised her.

Give me Aleksandra Zaryanova choosing to give up all prospects of becoming a world champion to fight for her country and protect her family.

Give me a brainwashed Amélie Lacroix killing the love of her life in his sleep.

Give me the usually bright and bubbly Lena Oxton on the brink of losing all hope as she flits in and out of existence.

There is so much potential within this wonderful cast of characters, and I for one can’t wait to see who we learn about next.

PERCY JACKSON AND GROVER UNDERWOOD ARE BEST FRIENDS AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING IT.

LEO VALDEZ AND PIPER MCLEAN ARE BEST FRIENDS AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING IT.

PERCY JACKSON WAS EXTREMELY CLOSE FRIENDS WITH CHARLES BECKENDORF AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP FORGETTING THAT.

CLARRISE LA RUE CARED ABOUT SILENA BEAUREGARD WITH ALL HER HEART AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP FORGETTING THAT.

PERCY JACKSON AND RACHEL ELIZABETH DARE WERE GREAT FRIENDS BEFORE SHE LIKED HIM AND STILL WERE AFTER AND I WISH PEOPLE WOULD STOP ERASING THAT.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED BIANCA DI ANGELO FOR MORE THAN JUST LEAVING NICO FOR THE HUNTERS. SHE WANTED TO BE FREE.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBER ZOË NIGHTSHADE FOR MORE THAN ‘THE DAM SNACK BAR’. SHE FOUGHT BRAVELY FOR ARTEMIS.

I WISH FRANK WAS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY BY THE FANS AND STOP BEING WRITTEN OFF AS THE AWKWARD ONE.

I WISH LEO WOULD STOP BEING LABELED AS THE FLIRT.

I WISH THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LEO AND CALYPSO WASN’T SO CRUSHING TO THE FORMING OF THEIR CHARACTER.

I WISH PERCY WASN’T CALLED A GOOFBALL BUT THEN NOT CONSIDERED FOR HOW SMART HE REALLY IS.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED THALIA’S PAIN WHEN JASON WAS TAKEN AWAY.

AND THALIA FEELING THAT PAIN AGAIN WHEN LEARNING ABOUT LUKE.

I WISH PEOPLE REMEMBERED THAT LUKE WASNT ALWAYS A BAD GUY AND THAT HE TRULY CARED ABOUT ANNABETH.

PERCY WAS NOT UPSET AT NICO FOR ‘NOT BEING HIS TYPE’. HE WAS CONFUSED THAT SOMEONE HE THOUGHT HATED HIM COULD HAVE BEEN IN LOVE WITH HIM. CONSIDER THIS, PLEASE.

TYSON EXISTS. WOW.

I WISH THAT WILL SOLACE WAS TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY. HE IS NOT JUST NICO’S BOYFRIEND. HE IS A FIERCE, INTELLIGENT DOCTOR WHO HELPED MANY IN THE WAR DURING “THE LAST OLYMPIAN” (HE HELPED ANNABETH!)

REYNA HAD A VALID REASON TO FEEL PAIN WHEN PERCY SAID HE WAS NOT INTERESTED IN HER. IT STINGS.

RACHEL ALSO HAD A VALID REASON.

SO DID CALYPSO.

AND SO DID NICO.

THESE CHARACTERS ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN WHAT THEIR LABELED AS AND WHAT PEOPLE REMEMBER.

Add more if you can think of any. I just r e a l l y had to rant about this at 2 am.

Things that Marvel needs to do in my opinion,

even if it’s not possible:


  • Black Widow movie. Either with Hawkeye (Budapest) or about hunting the Winter Soldier in the past. It can be a short movie, like half an hour to at least TELL US WHAT HAPPENED IN BUDAPEST. It’s been 4 years!
  • More movies with badass female leads. (I’m so thrilled for Captain Marvel).
  • No more whitewashing. I love Marvel but they honestly need to cast the right actors/actresses. Well at least as good as they can.  
  • Make their villains ‘better’. Loki and Wilson Fisk are the only villains who had enough backstory. They need to focuse more on the villains, not only on the hero’s.
  • Peter Quill meeting his grandpa if he’s still alive. 
  • Peter Quill visiting earth before Infinity War.
  • Peter Quills’s dad showed.
  • One last season of Agent Carter. There are questions left unanswered!
  • Loki, Wanda Maximoff and Doctor Strange meeting and having an awesome fighting scene. Either them fighting together and against each other. 
  • Doctor Strange, Tony Stark, Hank Pym and Bruce Banner having a conversation about clever-stuff. And maybe including Fitz-Simmons.
  • Coulson catching up with the avengers and Steve Rogers beeing happy that his greatest fan is alive. 
  • Happy comes back as Tony’s friend. 
  • Scott Lang and Steve Rogers having more conversations. 
  • May and Natasha and Gamora (and Jessica Jones) fighting together.
  • Peter Parker being friends with Wanda Maximoff because they are ‘the younglings’ and still kids. 
  • Daredevil and Captain America fighting together (I don’t know. I kinda want them together on screen).
  • Loki facing Thanos.
  • Loki staying alive. 
  • Loki showing off his tricks and fighting skills. 
  • Tony and Pepper getting back together.  
  • Steve/Bucky flashbacks.
  • Domestic!Steve Rogers and him being angry at the prices. 
  • Female Frost Giants (How do they even look like?).
  • Loki meeting his real mom.
  • Thor telling Odin that Odin was a bad parent and Loki being surprised about what his brother said. 
  • Loki accepting that Thor is his ‘brother’, but still being salty about everything. Him still doing mischief and staying true to himself but with less selfhate. 
  • Flashback of Thor and Loki’s childhood. With Frigga in it. And the Warriors three and Lady Sif.
  • The warriors three and Lady Sif helping Thor in Infinity War.
  • Steve wanting to use the time stone to travel back into the past to live with Peggy. 
  • Instead of dying in infinity war, Steve leaves the 21th century after infinity war and lives with Peggy. He’s never Captain America again and no one knows he’s alive. Bucky taking his place or Bucky coming with him.
  • The other Nine Realms being showed.
  • Peter Maximoff coming back to life just because. 
  • Luke Cage meeting Rhodey and Sam Wilson. 
  • Luke Cage and Jessica Jones getting back together.
  • Wanda keeping the Aether safe while Vision has the mind stone and Doctor Strange has the time stone.  
  • Stan Lee having many cameos because I love this man so much. 
  • Darcy and Doctor Selvig just being there.
  • Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff having a thing or breaking up for good. 
  • Clint Barton surviving everything because he’s a family man and his death would kill me. 
  • The inhumans fighting in Infinity War.
  • Baby Groot kicking ass.
  • Tony getting drunk with Rocket. 
  • The avengers visiting Asgard. 
  • Doctor Strange showing us different dimensions.
  • Original Wasp being found in a different dimension. 
  • Bucky Barnes leading with Steve (as best friends or lovers, you decide) a normal life after all the Thanos stress.
  • Avengers and X-men universe melt together or they meet. That’d be awesome.
  • DEADPOOL. 
  • Deadpool, Spiderman and Daredevil in one room.
  • Much more information about the Infinity Stones. 


Did I forget something? 

me: i do love comics, even though i admit im burnt out

marvel: loki dropkicked stephen strange off a building, maybe, and is the new sorcerer supreme

me: I Don’t Care About Literally Anything Else As Much As This and I Never Will

The 12th Doctor has been through more hell than any of the others (except perhaps The War Doctor.)  He’s lost more, he’s fought more, and he’s been put through more hellish death thanks to the Time Lords.  

He’s also loved more thanks to being River’s Doctor, the way he fought for Clara, and the things he’s done for humanity.  

So many people said so many cruel things about Peter Capaldi’s run as the Doctor but much as I knew, he was the Doctor perhaps more than any other actor in New Who because he had the history and brought to life every other Doctor within himself and his character.  The ancient alien, the eternal champion of right, the immortal wanderer who wonders at all the universe.  It was all there in him.

He got to live his dream.  He got to be his hero.  And yet it hurts me so much to see him leave knowing that perhaps his choice was based on the hateful comments and stupidity of people who are both dumb and blind.  

Be that as it may…Peter Capaldi has cemented himself in my heart as my Doctor.  I’ve been watching the show since I was 4 and he to me has personified the character perfectly.  He brought into the world of New Who the Classic Doctor with new wave punk soul that fit it so well.  And the reason was that was all the bits of himself he put into the character…a young man who grew up watching his heroes fly a TARDIS and who helped grow him into the man he is.  How could it not be a perfect Doctor?

Thank you Peter. You made me believe.  And you made me realize dreams come true and to just say fuck the haters.  You are My Doctor.  

So @inevitably-johnlocked had an ask looking for Sherlock/Johnlock AUs where John is the “special” one. Steph, we talk to much and I lost the link to the ask, sorry. But hopefully this helps.

 Across the Desert, Upon the Wind    by hogwartswitch

While out on a routine sweep in the desert, John and one of his teammates get lost in a sandstorm and end up at the foot of an enormous palace. They meet - and anger - a cursed prince who spares their life in exchange for John staying behind. But the prince has a secret and John soon discovers it, plunging himself in a quest across the desert fraught with danger. Loosely based on the fairy tales “Beauty and the Beast” and “East of the Sun, West of the Moon”.

Now while John isn’t exactly magical here, he’s a badass and this is great story.

A Fold in the Universe  by darkest_bird

Alpha Sherlock and Omega John are in a relationship. Prime Sherlock and Prime John are not. So what happens when a freak fold in the universe switches one John for the other?

One of the best stories I’ve ever read. John is amazing in this one. Or should I say, the Johns are amazing ;-)

Tempered Steel     by MyFirstistheFourth

Sherlock struggles with being a mate. John faces an unknown desire. While an enemy seeks to destroy a bond and the men who share it. Alpha/Omega dynamics. Angst and Feels abound but All Shall Be Well Friends! Mature for now but may be Explicit in later chapters.

Another badass Omega John. It’s long but so good.

Secrets and Revelations by  Hisstah

Dr John Watson has some major secrets that he’s kept from his flatmate, Alpha Sentinel Sherlock Holmes.  Now the Sentinel Tower is after him. Can John stay out of their hands until he can reveal his secrets to Sherlock?

An Omega/Guide John. He’s awesome in this one. One of my favorite series. He has some pretty kick ass abilities.

More Things Than Are Dreamt Of by 1electricpirate

In which John is (reluctantly) a wizard, Mycroft is (apparently) omniscient, and Sherlock is (surprisingly) oblivious.

My FAVORITE Potterlock in existence. I can’t say enough about how wonderful this story is.


Powerful, Beautiful and Without Regret by songlin

An alternate version of our own world, in which vampirism and lycanthropy are commonly recognized diseases and a returning soldier finds himself in need of a unique flatmate.

It’s been a while since I’ve read this one, but it’s a very good series.

Colors  by Quesarasara

Everyone on earth is born with eyes that see in black, white, and an endless series of greys. When you meet your soulmate, you finally see the world in color.We’re all searching for the person who brings color to our lives. John and Sherlock are no exception.

Tell me you’ve read Colors?? One of my favorite fics <3

This Man’s Heart  by ellie_hell

In the latter part of the 19th century, a peculiar solitary man and an ex-army doctor disfigured at war live in a small village, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. When they first meet, they have no idea their lives are about to change forever and, over the months, they will form an unusual friendship, discover more about each other and themselves, and maybe fall a little in love along the way.

I have read this fic so many times. I love it so much.

How to Build a Heart out of Ashes by Teumessian

In an AU where a small number of the population become Changelings at a young age, at 17 John Watson believes he’s destined for Normal life but then the Change takes him and he is sent to the Baker Institute. There he meets Sherlock Holmes. 

I adore this fic so much. Read it so many times.

Talented People With Interesting Skillsets by CharleyFoxtrot, MurphysScribe, naienko, thecookiemomma, wendymarlowe, Yuki801

A precog, a telepath, an empath, and a clairvoyant walk into a bar. That their names are Sally Donovan, John Watson, Greg Lestrade, and Sherlock Holmes may or may not be highly relevant.

I love this series. It’s fun and John is fantastic in it.

“It’s why I fell in love with you.”

As a demigod, you have to be prepared for anything

A monster could be around any corner. A god could send you on a special quest across the world. Your closest friends could betray you. 

Will thought that as a demigod and a doctor that survived two wars, he was prepared for anything.

But that was before Nico di Angelo strutted, ripped jeans and all, into his life.

This is not requested, but my ALL TIME favorite oneshots are the ones where the men actually show their insecurities and the woman comforts them and speaks that they are capable of being loved. That’s where this came from! Please enjoy!

Sherlock Holmes doesn’t understand how a woman like you can love a drug addicted, thick headed man like himself. After the incident with Culverton Smith, you decide to show him. 

Song lyrics from Amber Run- I Found Love

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

  “No!” You snapped angrily, jumping in front of an raging John Watson who would have beaten Sherlock to death had you not intervened. Culverton watched with an awed expression as you lifted your hand and smacked John so hard that his head flew to the side. “You don’t get to act like you’re the only one who lost something, John Watson! You don’t get to act like all the fault is placed on the only man who has ever actually cared enough to take you under his wing. Because lets face it.” You gripped the lapels of his coat and pulled him so close to your face that he could feel your anger in waves across his face. 

  “You’re just as damaged as he is.” 

In hindsight, you probably should have abstained from hitting the grieving father and husband, but you would never tolerate watching someone beat Sherlock to death because his anger clouded his judgement. John had been wary to approach you since, but found it in him to do so when you attempted to kick him out of 221B when Sherlock was discharged from the hospital. “I’m just going now.” He said quietly, brushing past your form that stood in the doorway. “I’m sorry y/n. You know how hard this is on me-” 

You leaned outward and wrapped your fingers around the former war doctors wrist. “I’m sorry for lashing out at you John, but you know he needs us as much as we need him.” You replied, feigning a smile as he squeezed your hand and left the flat, leaving you alone with your boyfriend. 

  “How can you love someone like me?” A deep baritone rumbled, drawing you out of your trance. 

I’ll use you as a warning sign

That if you talk enough sense then you’ll lose your mind

  “There’s so many reasons I love you, Sherlock Holmes. Words can not describe the unconditional love I feel for you. Even when we lock eyes,” You exhaled slowly as his blue eyes met yours, the left one swollen from the broken blood vessels. “My heart goes frantic.” 

  “That’s the thing!” He exclaimed, wincing as he stood to his feet and began to pace back and forth on the carpet. ‘’I adore you. I have adored you since the day we met because you are perfect. How can someone so perfect fall in love with someone who willingly lets their best friend beat him-” 

Marys death seemed to be a frequent topic of discussion every time John left the house for the night. “None of what happened to Mary is your fault. I’ve made that clear to John plenty of times since it happened.” You said firmly, curling your hands into fists. 

  “I’m a drug addict who didn’t have the decency to properly tell you when we started dating before the Reichenbach. You.. you utterly beautiful human being, you had so much faith in me that you waited two years to see if I’d return. I used to verbally tell you that you were incorrigible and dull. And then you somehow managed to show me that I loved you. And I do,” He hid his face in his hands in a futile attempt to mask the tears lingering in his eyes. “But God only knows you deserve someone much better then the junkie detective.” 

You were inches away from the detectives mutilated body, your breathing hitching as you took Sherlocks hand and sat it against your own to compare the drastic difference in size. “Do you know what I see in these hands? I have seen these hands save lives of innocent people. I have seen them in the most intimate ways, like the first time you found it in yourself to kiss me.” A sob broke past his lips as you led his hands to your jaw, smiling as he cupped it. “And your eyes.. I could get lost in them for hours. Those are eyes that have regarded me with such awe, and eyes that have cried thousands of tears you don’t deserve to have cried. Those are eyes that don’t just see- they also observe.” 

  “Y/n.” 

  “And finally, your lips.” You whispered, standing on your tiptoes and slowly trailing a finger along his cupids bow lips. Sherlock let out a moan he hadn’t expected as you slanted your mouth against his own and lightly took his bottom lip in between your teeth. “Lips that have regarded me as if I were a queen and made me feel as if I could run the world.” Your fingers curled in his shirt as his hands slid up under your blouse, and much to your surprise, caused him to pull away and bury his face in your neck. “Lips that left their mark and told others that I was yours and yours alone. That’s only one of the very reasons why I love you.” 

The two of you stood there for quite some time, cherishing the feeling of one another as Sherlock tightened his grip on your body, his trembling hands unsure of where to rest. “I-” He swallowed thickly, his voice muffled by his face in the crook of your shoulder. “Please don’t go anywhere. I need you. I-I love you.”

  “I love you too, but do you believe it when I say it?” 

You slowly pulled away and placed your hands on Sherlocks shoulders, applying enough pressure to ease him down into his chair. His arms opened as wide as they possibly could and you slid into them, throwing your legs over the chairs arm and resting your head against his shoulder. “There’s not one lie that comes from your lips. I’ve believed everything you said since you nearly offered yourself to Moriarty in exchange for Johns life. That’s why he’s always been taken with you.” 

It was clear from the trembling in his hands and his breathing that he was exhausted. “Are you tired my love?” you whispered, shushing his response as your fingers slid into his hair and began to slowly rake along his scalp. 

  “C-Can’t sleep. I’ll have nightmares of John literally trying to kill me.”

  “Do you have any ideas of what I can do to help you sleep?” 

Sherlock let out a sharp gasp as he picked you up bridal style and slowly ambled down the hall to your shared bedroom, resting you on your side before curling up in his, waiting to be able to rest his head on your chest. Your heart melted as he twined your legs together and threw his arm over your waist, his head resting on your chest. His curls tickled your nose, but you did your best to not laugh. “Sing. I don’t care what. Just sing to me.” 

You inhaled deeply and parted your lips, singing softly as Sherlock fell into a deep slumber. his fingers still linked with yours. 

I found love where it wasn’t supposed to be

Right in front of me

It talked some sense to me

He wasn’t perfect, but he was so perfectly imperfect, and he was yours. 

That made it all the more better.

“When John dreamed it was of the desert, miles of it, gently curving. It felt like the soft-strong curve of a woman’s body, the curl from her hip to her waist and up her back. It made him feel safe. He walked across the sand, and loved it; the burning annihilation that was the sun was present but very far away. When he finally woke he didn’t feel tired or frightened.” (Thursdayplaid, Bantam Wars)

In case you’re wondering: Yes, the boy is baby!John Watson, the man is John Watson. This is (another) beautiful scene in @thursdayplaid ’s Wee Doctor series that just itches to get out of my head onto the paper. Every time I reread this incredible fic, there are new scenes I want to paint and sketch so this probably won’t be the last :)))

Either way, if you’re up for a non-slash AU BBC Sherlock fic, open to new characters, eager for adventures and friendships and family love, this incredible fic is for you.

FIC COMMISSIONS!

Hey guys,

My salary is pretty low and my expenses have risen recently (health issues, plans to work abroad), so I decided to open up fic commissions. I’ve been writing original works and fanfiction for several years now and I’m also naturally an avid reader of a variety of genres.

You can find my fics here. Some of my best known, all in the Sherlock fandom, are:

Although Sherlock is my main fandom, there are a lot of other shows, movies etc. that I enjoy: Doctor Who, Firefly, Shadowhunters, Merlin, Supernatural, Grimm, Cabin Pressure, Haven, Star Wars, How to Train Your Dragon, The Hunger Games, MCU. And, of course, video games – Dragon Age, Dishonored, Bioshock, Vampire: The Masquerade, Portal, Mass Effect, Morrowind, Arcanum, The Secret World, and many more. I probably forgot a bunch of fandoms, so when in doubt just send me an ask.

I will write:

  • In English or in Polish (Yes! Tak!).
  • Pretty much all genres and all ratings.
  • I LOVE crossovers, fusions and AUs (omegaverse too), so if you want to see Sherlock living in the Void as the Outsider (with John as Corvo), Sam and Dean killing Darkspawn, or all your favourite characters murdering one another in the Hunger Games , I’m your gal.
  • Aside from a few NOTPs I’m pretty open to all ships.
  • Someone commission me so that I can finally write that Sherlock/The Hangover crossover I wanted to write since 2012.

I will not write:

  • Anything connected with season 4 of Sherlock (I deny its existence), so no Rosie, no Eurus, no Mary bending the laws of physics and catching the bullet Hollywood-style to save Sherlock. Although if you want to see some improved, alternate version of s4, we can discuss it.
  • Sherlock and John in a serious relationship with someone else. I mean, they could date someone else temporarily but Johnlock is the endgame.
  • Dark!characters unless they’re the villains of a story.
  • Dom/Sub universe, BDSM, paedophilia, certain kinks that squick me.
  • Anything that makes me uncomfortable for any reason. No judgment, though, I will simply refuse politely.

 

Prices

Fics in English:

1 dollar/1 euro for 100 words (the currency is up to you, whichever you prefer) . Payments are done via PayPal.

Fics in Polish:

2 zł za 100 słów (stawka niższa o połowę, bo u nas bida z nędzą). Opłata PayPalem.

How to request a commission

When you have an idea for a story, tell me about it and we’ll work out the details. Once we’ve settled on the plot, I’ll ask you for the payment. If you are not sure about the exact word count you want (because sometimes it’s hard to assess), we’ll make an estimation. If the story is shorter, I’ll refund you the excess and if it’s longer it’s on me, no need to pay more.

If for any reason I can’t complete your prompt, I will obviously refund you.

Once I start writing, you can contact me at any time and check on the progress and brainstorm ideas with me. When I’m done with a chapter/fic I will post it on my AO3 account. I can gift it to you or you may choose to remain anonymous. If you prefer to read the fic before publication that can be arranged as well.

Writing takes time, but I’ll try to finish the commission as quickly as I can.


Even if you’re not interested in making a commission, please signal boost this post. Thank you!

Hi friends! I’m on the hunt for new blogs to follow, so if you post about any of the following, give this post a like or reblog. Looking for both blogs just about things I love and/or multifandom. Love if we can become mutuals! 

  • Riverdale/Archie Comics
  • Marvel
  • Sherlock
  • Shadowhunters/Cassandra Clare books
  • NEW GIRL
  • Star Wars
  • Doctor Who
  • The Royals
  • Parks and Rec/The Office/Trial & Error

  • La La Land
  • Supernatural
  • The Magicians

Wonder Woman's erasure of Diana's BvS backstory really pissed me off. I would be happy to read your criticisms of the movie, because I have my issues with the movies, and I would like to know yours. Man's world really was a super masculine universe, and I can't believe they erased all female presence except for Etta Candy (and Doctor Poison). Like, no nurse on the battlefield? In a movie about world war one??? I had hopes for some historical realism, but... well.

I’d love to hear what you thought of the movie, too! I didn’t speak up much right after Wonder Woman because I didn’t want to knock the wind out of anybody’s sails. I’m super glad that Wonder Woman was such a good time for so many people, but it was a bit of a letdown for me.

I have written a lot about how I think that MoS was the most feminist superhero movie at the time it came out. It really shouldn’t be so neck-and-neck with the first female led superhero movie in a cinematic universe, but it kinda is.

Women are very central to the Superman franchise when the Superman franchise is being true to its inspiration and its roots, and women were just not very central in Wonder Woman. This is a really common trap, I think, and good reason to STOP putting Diana on all-male teams! She is not. supposed. to be. an exception.

Diana represents feminine power, the power of empathy, compassion, and diplomacy. These are not powers that set her apart from other women, because the point is not that Diana is exceptional, the point is that all women are. The film just doesn’t support that idea at any juncture.

She’s even set apart from her brilliant and remarkable Amazonian sisters. She trains, she spars, but her power makes the Amazons shrink back. She’s not one of them, and she’s not one of us. So I guess my question is, why does it matter if she’s wonderful?

I don’t think we ought to be satisfied with just one woman with power, with admiration. Feminism is about team work. It’s about all of us- including the women who are not white, who are not thin, who are not straight or abled. I think the team on Wonder Woman falls short of that, and as a result they missed a lot of opportunities and I think to a certain degree they missed me.

You just want cruelty to beget cruelty. You’re not superior to people who were cruel to you; you’re just a whole bunch of new cruel people.

Why don’t you break the cycle? […] What is it that you actually want? War? And when this war is over, when you have a homeland free from humans, what do you think it’s going to be like? Do you know? Have you thought about it? Have you given it any consideration? Because you’re very close to getting what you want. What’s it going to be like? Paint me a picture. Are you going to live in houses? Do you want people to go to work? Will there be holidays? Will there be music? Do you think people will be allowed to play violins? Who’s going to make the violins? Well? Oh, you don’t actually know do you? Because, like every other tantrumming child in history, you don’t actually know what you want. So, let me ask you a question about this brave new world of yours. When you’ve killed all the bad guys, and when it’s all perfect and just and fair, when you have finally got it exactly the way you want it, what are you going to do with the people like you? The troublemakers. How are you going to protect your glorious revolution from the next one? Maybe you will win, but nobody wins for long. The wheel just keeps turning. So come on, break the cycle. [….] Because it’s always the same. When you fire that first shot, no matter how right you feel, you have no idea who’s going to die! You don’t know whose children are going to scream and burn! How many hearts will be broken! How many lives shattered! How much blood will spill until everybody does what they were always going to have to do from the very beginning – sit down and talk!

Dear Fanfic Writers

I’m glad you exist and are producing everything from shameless smutty sin that makes me feel like I should go to church to the flawlessly fantastic fluff that rots my teeth and gives me diabetes Thankyou fanfic writers for the plot twists that come out of nowhere, the descriptions that paint my mind with colour, the character development that makes it all so believable and for the beautifully cruel scenes that remind me what empathy is. Thankyou for the elation that leaps off my screen and love that makes my toes curl with joy at the sheer wonder of it. So thankyou fanfic writers for taking what I already love and making me love it that much more. You are all beautiful human beings and I am so grateful that you share your creativity and talent with the world.
