“I used my abilities. Sometimes I was a human; sometimes i wore the skins of other street children with high standing in their packs; sometimes i became an alley cat or a rat or a gull. And then I learned that if I made myself prettier – if I made myself beautiful – when i begged for money, it came far faster. I was wearing one of those beautiful faces the day magic fell. And I’ve been stuck ever since.” “And this is the form Arobynn spotted you in a few years later”
I’m still thinking about this anon and their worries about tomorrow’s episode.
I’m obsessed with shipping supercat and upset this will never be cannon. The show will probably just have J'onn J'onzz shape shift into super girl, save the day in front of cat and kara, end of story line and my hopes and dreams :’(
I think it was @voidtorcher who originally brought up the rumor/theory that Cat’s presumed knowledge of Kara’s secret could be “reset” by J’onn J’onzz’s character. As soon as I heard that theory I was bummed because I knew it was probably gonna end up being true. It just feels typical of this genre.
But over the past few weeks I’ve come accept that if it happens, it’ll be a gift.
Not the same sort of gift as Cat knowing and snarking and sniping but protecting Kara’s secret. We’ve had plenty of that in fic and it is glorious and creative and beautiful.
But IF Cat’s knowledge is reset in tomorrow’s episode by seeing J’onzz-as-Supergirl/Kara, as I expect it probably will be, the gift is that we get to start over. We get to build to that revelation all over again, except this time there will be more weight and battle scars and late nights behind them when they get there. Cat might be absolutely furious when she finds out the truth next time - and think of how glorious and angsty and amazing that will be.
The show has taken some turns I didn’t expect, so maybe Cat will join the supersquad and everything will just march forward. But if it doesn’t, don’t worry. There is nothing Supercat writers can’t fix. :)
A tentacled snake in hunting posture! These snakes are super cool. They have two little tentacles that help them sense prey, and they form a J-shape (although the way this one’s positioned, it’s kind of a backwards, sideways J) with their bodies. When a fish swims along, they twitch the lower body, which usually causes their dinner to dart towards their heads. Pretty nifty!
