“that thing with Cassandra and Jenkins came out of nowhere!!”

are u sure

I hope this isn’t seen as confrontational. I think shipping wars are silly, ship what you want to ship! This show has always been wonderful about making any and all ships probable. I don’t ship things often and, of the things I do ship, this was probably the one I thought was least likely to be acknowledged. But they did!! I was shocked and delighted! Just as I was delighted that they fully acknowledged Cassie being non-hetero.

Cassandra has always been the one to notice when something is bothering Jenkins. Being the caretaker, Jenkins notices when any of them are upset, but it’s hard to deny he has a soft spot for Cassie. He’s comfortable enough to be silly with her (”you know what this makes me want to do? It makes me want to go ‘hmmm…’”). Cassandra is always first to jump at the opportunity to help him and is incredibly eager to do so. (That scene where Jenkins was tossing books down to the boys from the balcony and she was running about trying to catch them first, then Jenkins walked down and handed her one.) They have a great deal of mutual respect and make an excellent team.

I just wanted to point out that this ship is just as valid as the others and, in fact, has had just as much subtext as the others. They handled the situation perfectly, and Jenkins reacted exactly as I’d expected him to. He feels it would be improper, all but saying he’d feel he was taking advantage, but he let her down without being condescending (knowing Cassie is more than capable of handling herself) or dismissive of her feelings.

I hope the subject is brought up again, I hope they talk about it more. Though no matter what happens I hope Cassandra is happy, because sometimes the way people in the fandom pull her back and forth with everyone makes me a bit uncomfortable. Ship all the things, but remember Cassandra is her own person and not a vehicle for a ship! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

anonymous asked:

I see you complaining about Scott Lobdell's mischaracterization of Jason a lot, but what exactly don't you like about it?

*cracks knuckles*

i am so glad you asked, anon.

okay. first of all: lobdell’s characterisation of jason isn’t my least favourite characterisation. that dubious honour goes to fabian nicieza’s jason in robin v2, as broken down by luka over here. but god, does it irritate me. bear in mind that i didn’t read all of rhato, because i couldn’t read too many issues before i just gave up. (warning: major saltiness beneath the cut.)

Hi! I'm not sure if you've answered this question before, but could you a little info thing about the most LGBT+ friendly NHL teams? I saw the St. Louis Blues are doing a pride night and I wondered if they're more or less the best? Thanks for guiding us new kids through the world of hockey <3

hi! i have not answered it but i’d be happy to now :)

i’m not sure if i can really say which team is the ‘best’ for being lgbt+ friendly. it’s a difficult thing to judge whether an entire team is basically not a piece of shit

st louis blues are definitely one of the teams that appear to be most supportive and vocal about lgbt+ rights at the moment. their pride night looks really good and i’m so proud of them! it’s is on the 17th jan for anyone wondering (against the caps) you can find tickets here (x)

edmonton oilers have also made their support known. they’re the first team to use pride tape in a game which was really cool! 

a bunch of the calgary flames marched in the 2016 vancouver pride parade as well :) also their 3 you can play vids (x) (x) (x)

there are also a lot of individual players who have openly supported lgbt+ causes and you can play (as of 2014 there is at least one player in each team that openly supports you can play project)

i put them all under the cut because they’re are quite a few plus some specific stuff i remember certain players doing
