I miss those dog days of Supergirl in Season 1, when the end of each episode brought a wave of gifsets, ficlets, headcanons and endless theorizing. We dove in head first to take our beautiful ladies and build not only on what we saw on screen but what we didn’t see.
We encouraged each other and were inspired by each other and we took all the gifts the writers and actresses gave us and painted the world with beauty and color and love.
And now, the day after an episode directed by a famous fan and touted as a pivotal one for the season, my dashboard is a mirror of my own despair over the loss of my show.
We’re just not inspired anymore and nothing is more heartbreaking. Even in the past when ships that I don’t ship become canon on my shows, I am still inspired by what I see and able to imagine my characters in a million different worlds. I’ve even been able to do this when my favorite characters left the show (Prentiss anyone?)
But Supergirl is so entirely unrecognizable that I can hardly blame my pals for moving on to greener pastures or doing whatever they can to rail against the injustice of poor representation or, like me, just go radio silent and sigh quietly over what could have been.
I’m sorry we’ve all lost our inspiration, that fire that kept fandom alive in our hearts. I’m sorry that the creators we had such faith in to carry that girl-power we loved so through to future seasons let us down so profoundly. I’m sorry that I’ve had so little time to do so little to contribute myself. So I’ll just throw this out there. Cat’s still out there, somewhere, thinking of Kara and watching from afar. And even if we never see her on our screen again, we can know that if anyone can swoop down to save our heroine, Cat Grant can.
Be brave, my small but mighty fandom! Don’t be afraid to dive into challenges and stay active. There is SO MUCH talent here. Keep creating!
So, let’s pull out a stool at Noonans, order up a steaming hot latte and dump out all those old art supplies and see what we can come up with.
I’ll finally be more available after this weekend and I’ve got months of feels built up.
I know I have been absent, that you haven’t seen a fic from me in ELEVEN days, but life, as you may have already imagined it, gets in the way. I’m sorry I’ve been on and off, I haven’t really wanted to. Writing has always been in the back of my mind, but between work, paying bills I have pending, family issues, and having my grandma over from Honduras, there has literally been no time.
But that changes very soon. Hopefully. My grandma leaves back to our home country on Thursday, which means I can focus on writing a little longer now that I’m not worried about spending so much time with her because I don’t know if I’ll ever see her again.
And work will maybe ease up on me. I don’t know about that yet. Money is greatly needed atm. (Saving up for a new car lol).
So yeah, guys. Thought I could give you a little update on what I’m up to and how come I’ve been so quiet on here.
I’ll try to write tonight and see if I have something up this week :)

Hey everybody. I know I haven’t been very active this past week, and I’m sorry for that. I love you all but my family and I are going through a really hard and draining time right now, physically and emotionally.
I probably won’t be active on tumblr almost at all for the next several days, but know that it’s not because I don’t want to be, it’s just because speaking candidly, tumblr is the last thing on my mind right now. I’ve tried getting on, but I’m just not up for it right now emotionally beyond ‘liking’ stuff. I hope you all understand.
Psssst… I graduated college and finally have some free time to myself again… Is anyone still here? Would anyone be interested in some new comics or drawings to something? I really want to make new stuff but I’m scared no on will remember me because I’ve been gone so long.
