“To be clear,” Clark asked, “did I just help you commit a felony?”
Lois said nothing, but gave Clark her best ‘shut the fuck up’ look. Obediently, he shut the fuck up.
She hadn’t needed to bring him along. The only reason she had was as a precaution. He might be too big to be sneaky, but he was a fine size for warding off the majority of small threats. Lois, despite a carefully cultivated demeanor, still could not intimidate as well as a hapless dork who happened to shop in big and tall.
Furthermore: Clark Kent had an irritating tendency to wander off when something interesting was happening. When he did, he tended to find all sorts of information that Lois did not. And then he scooped her.
Keeping him close meant she’d see what he saw. No chance for him to go to Perry with an angle she’d missed out on. It wasn’t quite a rivalry, what they had, but it wasn’t exactly teamwork either.
Even if he had, technically, just helped her commit a felony.
It wasn’t a major felony. It was an investigative felony. Those could hardly be said to count. Really more of an ambitious misdemeanor.
so i think i might be a lesbian... i previously id'd as pan but im only really attracted to men in fiction and irl the thought of dating or marrying a man isn't appealing and the idea of sex with a man is kinda gross but gosh i love girls so much they're so beautiful and sweet and i adore them so much aaa,,, your compulse het post clicked a lot with me but idk if im pan with just a strong pref, and idk if i can us the les term since im a nb girl?? ty for reading all this aa
ya there are plenty of nb lesbians!! lesbians have been defying gender norms and identifying out of the binary (even if they didnt have the language for it before now) for as long as lesbians have existed you can absolutely call yourself a lesbian love welcome to the lesbian family <3 <3 <3
Idk my dudes.. The idea of clone troopers painting their helmets/armour like Ahsoka doesn’t click with me because it takes a lot away from their own individuality. Idk man I don’t like it, it seems pretty out of character for them.. I really loved how the clones painted their armour with things that fit them and show more about who they are. That is a big part of what made them such intriguing characters.
this is the second meta challenge that was inspired by and based off of this one. it also borrows or adapts some of its prompts, but also changes things and adds in new ones.
Explore a representation of women that you love.
Explore a representation of women that bothers you.
Explore how your text/fandom handles sexuality and/or romance.
Explore the representation of MOGAI/LGBQ sexual and romantic identities in your canon/fandom, or the lack thereof.
Explore how your text/fandom handles (or doesn’t handle) race, positively and negatively, in big and small ways. (Racialized metaphors count as handling race, but if they’re writing the experience of racism onto white characters, remember that this is NOT a positive way of handling race.)
Explore how your text/fandom handles (or doesn’t handle) disability and/or mental health positively and negatively, in big and small ways. (Again: metaphors count as addressing disability, but if there are no actual facts disabled characters, then that’s not a positive handling of disability.)
How does your text deal with traditional gender roles — both perpetuating and subverting them — or deal with gender in general.
Write a shipper manifesto for your OTP (or one of them).
Write something positive about a ship you don’t ship, or about the people who ship it.
Explore a ship that you’re indifferent to in closer detail.
Explore a favorite blood relation family dynamic
Explore a favorite “found family” dynamic.
Explore a favorite friendship dynamic.

Why is your favorite book/episode/scene/chapter/moment your favorite? Why is it important to the story?
Pick a book/episode/scene/chapter/moment that you don’t like. Why is it in the story? What does it bring to the table? Why is it important?
Pick a significant turning point in your text and explore it: what is it, what’s so important about it, how does it change things, how do you feel about it?
Pick a significant object within your text and explore it: what is it, where is it from, why is it important, what does it mean.
What’s something about your canon that you didn’t appreciate at first, but have since come to love or at least see the value in?
How does space function in the story? (Any kind of space: distance/closeness, public vs. private space, space the final frontier, pigs in space, get creative and interpret this however.)
Explore one use of symbolism in the text. What does it mean for the characters? What does it mean for the readers/viewers? What does it mean in the text overall? What does it mean to you?
Explore one recurring theme in the text. Which storylines or characters bring it out the best? Which ones downplay it? Where does it get complicated, or where does the text seem to contradict itself? What kind of position does the text take about it?
Intertextuality day!! What are some of the connections your canon has to other texts — what texts have influenced it? Is it part of an extended universe of canons? Does it crossover with any other canons particularly well? Does anything about it remind you of any other canons? Explore these connections.
Do you have any weird readings or interpretations of anything from your canon? Things that you got out of the text that it didn’t mean to say or that no one else did? Things that make sense but only if you explain them? Things where your interpretation is wildly different from everyone else’s? etc.?
Share a piece of your headcanon and explain how and why you developed it.
What’s one of your favorite headcanons that someone else came up with and why?
Is there a popular piece of fanon/headcanon that you disagree with or one that bothers you? If so, why?
Do you have any particular favorite AU or crossover headcanons? What are they? Why do you love them so much? Alternately: do you like AUs/ARs? why or why not? what draws you to them or doesn’t?
Write one meta you’ve always wanted to write that didn’t fit these categories.
Confession: Every once in a while I get really intense feelings for one of my Besties and idk if I'm like?? In love with her?? Or just want a super good friendship?? Or if I just like the idea of being in love and am not actually in love? Idk man. Either way she's straight ripperooni
damn! dare i say mood? i feel you every one of my close friends will tell you that i am the worst at deciphering romantic feelings from just friendship ones gskdgsk
for your sake though since she’s straight i’m hoping that you just want a closer friendship w her and mayhaps it would be easier for you to operate under the assumption that that’s the case so you don’t fall into the crush zone for a straight person bc that is….a whole other level of pain tbh
Okay, here me out (and before anyone cries ablism, I want you to know that this comes from personal experience): Lance having ADHD and that prevents him from succeeding at what he’s actually pretty good at. He’s always in the average or lower level classes, thinking that he can do better, but whenever he tries to do more advanced work, he fails, so he goes his whole life feeling like a failure, like he’s just stupid and lazy. Then he discovers the Garrison and flying, and he feels so free and he finally found his calling! He works his butt off in class, doing his absolute best in everything he needs to be the best fighter pilot after Shiro. But then he looks at the class lists and sees that he only made it as cargo pilot, and he’s crushed. He thought he made it, he thought that he finally found something he’s good at. Truth is, he /is/ good at flying, his just isn’t always able to focus in the cockpit. That’s why he’s so excited to make fighter class, because now he can finally follow his dreams and ride through the stars. What really doesn’t help that Iverson is constantly reminding him of the reason he made fighter class in the first place.
Then Voltran happens, Lance meets Blue, and suddenly he feels that same drive and freedom he did when he first entered flight school. Sometimes he likes to take joy rides just because. Space is his happy place, and if he has to save the universe from and angry purple turtle man, then he’s gonna be the best damn palladian he can.
Idk, I just really like the idea of lance having adhd, because it’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life, and I’m projecting.
Quiznac, I just like the idea of the whole team being neurally atypical (is that a phrase? Idk, I’m a bad English major).
Also, sorry this was so long…
I love this. ADHD Lance is such a good thing and Blue! Helping Lance concentrate! Blue being patient with Lance! BLUE AND LANCE. I HAVE A LOT OF EMOTIONS ABOUT THESE TWO.
Yeah but have you guys considered Simon not wanting to become a vampire at all? I mean we all know he loves Baz to death—but like. What if. Just. What if, he really doesn’t want to become a vampire. What if Simon just wants to live his life as normal as it can’t get—even if the joke is he’ll never be normal.
idk man i dont know how i feel about jackie as of right now; i don't think I like her much and i don't really like the idea of marco having a love interest honestly? It was a little mention but I'm pretty sure in that tentacle episode he said something about liking her and it just threw me off idk, your thoughts?
Well, she only had one short line. We still know nothing about her personality.
