aos fandom racism is so frustrating because like. May and Skye are THE MOST IMPORTANT WOMEN ON THE SHOW. fandom can’t even hide behind the tired “oh it’s not our fault the poc are minor characters! It’s the CREATORS who must to better” rhetoric

I find May and Skye to be an incredibly intriguing case study in fandom racism for a number of reasons, especially because of what you’ve pointed out here about fandom being unable to hide behind certain forms of rhetoric – the transparency of fandom racism highlights a few obvious things:

history has its eyes on you. when things finally seem to be slowing down, that’s when finn finally realizes how much everything has changed. ~2.1k [ao3]

It’s once he’s out of the medical bay that Finn notices the way that people watch him. For the first little while, he just sorta assumes that they’re all looking at Poe, the greatest pilot in the Resistance and the fighter who fired the shot that destroyed the Starkiller. 

But then Poe had told him: “Keep your eyes up.” He gave Finn a little, reassuring nudge. And when Finn turned to look at him, a little taken back by the realization that, to this huge amount of people, he was more than just a number, Poe’s looking up at him, a crooked smile on his face. “They’re proud to know you. Don’t let it embarrass you.”

Castiel x Dean x Meg; fem!meanstiel/polyamorous/domestic!AU

They travel from state to state, enjoying their time together. Sometimes they sit in a forest and just sit in each other’s company; sometimes they rent a rowing boat and go onto the lake - though they always end up in the lake more often than not. Other times, they just find an apartment to rent for a short time, and spend their times cooking and taking photos and enjoying their time in bed.

Love isn’t the matter here, intimacy aside. Most of the time both of them seem elsewhere, lost and wandering through each other. To each other. Few times do they ever truly focus. Cain can feel his own blood in Dean’s veins, knows that they are several hundred generations removed from one another, but are still family. He looms over the broad shoulders, the smooth skin, leans in and licks the mark on Dean’s arm. The one he put there.

Dean shivers beneath him, squeezing his cock and rocking against him. Cain smirks. “Needy whore.”

Another shiver, a whimpered breath. Love isn’t the matter here. It’s something far deeper for them.

soft hands ; yours too. the only thing that seems to keep our trio grounded, through trauma and recovery, is the gentle hands and reassurances from one another. 6.1k [ao3] rey/finn/poe

Any sort of feeling of celebration rushes out of Poe Dameron pretty quick once he gets back onto D’Qar. The news that Finn had made it off of the Starkiller base, sure, but barely in one piece, hits him like a sucker punch to the stomach. He’s out of his X-Wing pretty quick, down on the tarmac and following the stretcher that gets wheeled off of the Millennium Falcon in a whirlwind. Tomorrow, he’ll probably wonder how the hell he even pushed his way into that fray, positioning himself right at the head of the stretcher, looking down at Finn, haplessly talking to him even though he knows he won’t talk back.

Nurses and medical droids bark orders at one another. It’s chaos, loud and unadulterated mayhem, but they all seem to know exactly where they should be and what they should be doing. They jostle around Poe, which he takes as a good sign; if it was serious, if they’d needed him gone, they wouldn’t have been afraid to tell him so.

“Finn?” he tries again as they all barrel through the doors into the medical bay. If it’s possible, it gets even louder. More nurses, droids, surround them. Others (the first responders) fall back and let their colleagues do their jobs. Poe stays right with Finn, one hand gripping the stretcher, the other holding onto Finn’s for dear life. “Finn.” This time, he doesn’t say it as a question, and he speaks louder, more definitive. And Poe swears he feels something: a small and weak returning gesture from Finn. He feels Finn squeeze his hand back. It’s soft enough that, later on, he might suspect that his mind had just been playing tricks on him, that he’d simply felt what he wanted to feel, but in that moment, there’s nothing he’s more sure of in the world.

Sam thinks Dean might know. His big brother’s been dropping hints for the past quarter and a half, making some really loaded jokes and not-so-offhand remarks. They never happen around anyone else, though, which Sam is thankful for. It’s one thing to have Dean saying it, it’s another entirely for the vice-principal to hear it.

He wonders if Dean disapproves, if that’s why he’s being so vocal.

When Lisa takes Ben to his very first comic convention, she doesn’t expect to lose him so quickly. Luckily for her, a certain redhead has an affinity with quests and cute kids.

“Ok honey, remember to not run off just anywhere, I need to be able to see you, ok?” Lisa said quietly as Ben vibrated in his Batman costume (the one they’d both stayed up late with the finishing touches; Lisa had burns all over her fingers from the evil glue gun, but his face once he saw the deflectors made it all worth it).

He sighed, “Mom, I’m not a baby, I won’t get lost.”//Lisa hmm’d and found a not-too-bad-parking space, remembering not to hold Ben’s hand as he got out of the car.

I was thinking about the Isaac Lahey one, too, and I don’t even watch that show.

Supposedly between seasons 2 and 3 she went to Quantico and is now an FBI agent, but frankly the length of time required some suspension of disbelief.

They could’ve had her return to Quantico as an instructor. Maybe she got a job offer she couldn’t refuse.

There are an infinite number of ways to write someone out, ESPECIALLY on a goddamn fantasy show. Like gimme a break.
