Some fun questions for the Supergirl Comic-Con panel (mainly for the producers / writers)
Why did you replace James, a kind and respectful black man, with Mon-El, a white slave-owner, as a love interest, especially after spending the entire first season building up the relationship between Kara and James?
The relationship between Kara and Mon-El has shown obvious signs of abuse with Mon-El exhibiting extreme jealousy, yelling at and humiliating Kara at the DEO, undermining her constantly and attempting to guilt-trip her when she broke up with him. Why do you continue to promote this relationship as healthy and romantic?
Supergirl is supposedly a feminist show centered around female empowerment, so why was Kara’s entire arc in Season 2 centered entirely around her male love interest instead, with her career, her development as a superhero and her previously highly important relationships (with Alex, James, J’onn) sidelined completely?
Why did you promote episode 2x13 as Sanvers-centric when in reality the relationship between Alex and Maggie barely got 5 or 6 minutes of screentime? Why was Maggie’s traumatic coming out experience never addressed properly, let alone respected by the other characters?
What was the point of turning Maggie into a cheater? Why did she receive more backlash for it in-universe than Mon-El had for being a slave-owner and lying about his past to Kara and admitting to never actually intending to come clean about his past?
Season 2 has prided itself on its great work for LGBT representation, but why was Sanvers only given the bare minimum of screentime and never allowed the same amount of both casual and overt intimacy on screen as the straight couples (even the rather irrelevant Winn/Lyra pair)?
Why do you keep portraying Kara’s work as a superhero as brawn over brains, when she was shown a great number of times in Season 1 to be highly empathetic, trying to talk down her adversaries before engaging in combat?
The bond between Kara and Alex has been established to be the strongest relationship on the show in Season 1, so why did you keep undermining it in Season 2, having their romantic interests replace them in each other’s lives? In what world would Alex be content to sit in yoga class while there was a bounty on her sister’s head, or let Kara’s ex-boyfriend accompany her comatose sister to an another dimension instead of her?
Why are J’onn’s extensive abilities never used in investigations or in combat, having him dumbed down and sidelined instead?
Lena Luthor has been very clearly shown to be a survivor of emotional abuse, going so far as to have her acknowledge it and confront Lillian about it in the Season 2 finale. She has also been shown to consistently strive to do good and distance herself from her family, and yet the producers have kept teasing that she might turn evil. Don’t you think it’s a disservice to abuse survivors to suggest that no matter how hard they try, they will never be able to overcome their past trauma?
Season 1 has shown CatCo to be massively influential in shaping the public’s opinion, and yet we have seen little to nothing of it in Season 2 and it’s supposed focus on pro and anti alien sentiments. Will CatCo and Kara’s dayjob regain its significance for the plot in Season 3?
When will we start seeing more of James Olsen again? Why did he have less than a minute of screentime in the finale, never even getting to talk to his old friend Clark? Will we ever see Clark and James discussing James’s decision to take up the Guardian’s mantle?
come to think of it, why wouldn’t someone with superman’s powers use them for physical comedy? like. buster keaton style. or dick van dyke. he is invulnerable and can fly, those are the perfect circumstances for a pratfall. half the time only he is aware that he is joking and he just looks like a clumsy asshole but he knows in his heart that the timing on that gag was perf. add this to my list of stupid fucking headcanons.
6. SAGITTARIUS MERCURY - chatty, always a bunch of interesting things to tell, often cutely lisping, but it only adds charm to their fast talking.
5. CANCER MOON - so caring and selfless, people like them are just waiting to give all of their compassion and love to you, they make you feel so special!
4. TAURUS MARS - These are the people that always know how to act, what to say, what to do at the right moment, in the right place and the right way. They are never dumbing themselves down for anyone, incredibly strong and independent human beings!
3. AQUARIUS VENUS - That one is mine, and I feel like I still need time to get on that AquaVenus level. Those people are the best flirters on Earth, they are provoking and intriguing you to a fault, they have such a unique kind of irresistible charm. They manage to be cocky, flirty but innocent and sweet at the same time. Those cuties are precious to this world!
2. SAGITTARIUS MOON - These people are hyperactive sweethearts! They perfectly combine a careless joyfulness with an incredibly strong feeling of compassion and understanding. Thanks for never being boring, lovely SagMoonies!
1. CAPRICORN VENUS - You may flirt, date, fall in love with different people, but I wish you to end up with a Capricorn Venus. Those people fall in love once and for all, you will never have to worry about them not being faithful, they will give themselves to you, all of them and never take their love away again. They will spend their lives making you happy and protect you, making you feel special as if you are the only person on earth. They only have eyes for you. Marry these sweethearts!
“I became insecure and desperate. Your opinion meant more to me than my own and that’s not how it should be. I have to find out what my opinion is. And I have to do it on my own.“
“But I can’t continue having regrets for the rest of my life… I wish I could do it all over again, completely different. But I can’t. I’m just going to have to accept it and move on.”
“Everybody is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”
“You are strong and independent when you can change your opinions. No matter what gender changes you.”
“War doesn’t start with violence. It starts with misunderstandings and prejudice.”
“If you say you’re in favour of a world of peace, you have to try to understand why others think and act the way they do.”
“People experience horrible things everyday and still manage to be nice to others. Being an asshole is not something you’re born with, or something you become. It’s a choice.”
“Hate doesn’t come from religion, it comes from fear.”
“Whether you believe in Allah or Jesus or the theory of evolution or parallel universes, there’s only one thing we know for certain. That life is… now.”
“Do you know how many people I know who say they believe in Allah? But they still drink, steal and vandalize. What’s more important? Saying you believe in Allah or live like you believe in Allah?”
I love that skam can place important and meaningful messages within the show not just through actions and events but also in the dialogue without sounding cliché or slipping from the narrative voice. These are legitimate things that teenagers think about and say. Yes, they’re mature but it comes from reflection, observation, and learning about how the world works and who we are. It’s never dumbed down to the point that it sounds cheesy or discredits teenagers’ ability to genuinely think, and it’s not so elevated and structured that it sounds fake or forced. It’s raw and real and beautiful
A = Aftercare Wonwoo’s not the most gentle of lovers, so aftercare is incredibly important to make sure you’re not hurt afterwards. He makes you stay still while he runs to get a warm rag to wipe you both down, and massage your muscles to ensure you’re not sore the next day, tender kisses and sweet nothings are exchanged. He’s careful to make sure you’re okay and comfortable after sex.
B = Body part (Their favorite body part of theirs and also their partner’s) Without going the sappy route, Wonwoo loves your hips. He’s quite dominant in bed, and what better than to hold on to your hips, and be in complete control of how you grind against his thigh, or pin you to the bed while he pounds you into the mattress? Going along that lines, without just being like m y d i c c, he’d go with his hands. They’re pretty large, seeing how easy his hands are at keeping your hands pinned above your head, or clutching your hips and controlling the speed he allows you to ride him in, that alone feeds into his dominant side.
C = Cum Wonwoo isn’t one to care about the mess, if he’s cumming, any thought concerning that is out the window. He’s not insanely messy, just careless with it, he’s somehow turned it into a game to try and cum on your chest but that doesn’t exactly work well when he’s already shooting…kinda gets everywhere. Sheets definitely need stripped after sex with Wonwoo, he’s not a good shot.
D = Dirty Secret (a dirty secret of theirs) Sensory deprivation is something he deeply wants to play with, he already is pretty fond of blindfolds, but using that to it’s full potential isn’t something hes toyed with yet. Wonwoo really wants to play it out completely, have you wear ear plugs and blindfolded, completely unaware of what he’s going to do to you. Completely at the mercy of him and your body’s response to his fingers, toys, and feather teasers.
E = Experience (How experienced are they? Do they know what they’re doing?) Wonwoo might as well have read a ‘how to fuck’ book with how much he knows about sex, he’s very knowledgeable about it. I feel like he’s done something at some point, but not enough to have a concrete feel on what to do. But, he does know what he’s up to. He’ll need a few times to be accustom to your body, but once he’s got the system cracked, he’s completely prepared to wreck you.
F = Favorite position It’s 2:20 am as I write this and I’m just sitting here laughing at sex position names….the wraparound…lmao….anyways, with Wonwoo, it might take a bit of stretching(but it’s okay, he got you with that good af aftercare boo) but he favors you laying back and letting him prop your legs up on his shoulders, and just pound away. Your legs on him, gives him somewhat more control over you, he can easily turn you into another position, and with your legs out of the way, he can just really get it up in there.
G = Goofy (Are they more serious in the moment, or are they humorous, etc) Although Wonwoo does fall in to this sort of dominant character in the bedroom, it’s not overbearing and suffocating. Sometimes seeing a dick is just funny as fuck, and it’s never weird for either of you to just burst out laughing. I mean, if you can’t laugh with someone who’s two seconds away from putting a dick in you, they’re not the right person, life lessons right there. It’s more serious with Wonwoo, but not to a point that’s it’s not fun or lighthearted.
H = Hair (How well groomed are they) I don’t see Wonwoo being concerned with being completely bare, I think he’s one of those guys that wants a bit of hair to just ‘feel like a man’ or whatever, but he does keep it clean. Trim it up a bit, manscape a little. I don’t think he keeps up with it all the time tho, I mean honestly..who shaves every day? Be honest. So at times it is a bit more out of control as compared to other days.
I = Intimacy (How are they during the moment, romantic aspect…) Sex is very intense with Wonwoo, but he somehow manages to work in love rather than lust. He’s very much into body worship, and making it known that although you might be tied down and at his mercy, you’re his equal and he loves you and this isn’t just sex. It’s not really romantic? But he makes his feelings obvious.
J = Jack Off (Masturbation) Wonwoo typically has his hormones under control, but it’s kind of hard to deal with a boner when there isn’t time to just…wait around for it to go down or take a shower or something, so he’s quick and sneaky about getting it done. Locked away, he takes care of business, but he’s that annoying bf that always calls or texts you like ‘im hard…help’. Phone sex is pretty frequent, if you can’t be there to physically deal with it with him, he’s got to have you help vocally.
K = Kink (One or more of their kinks) Wonwoo’s dominant, but not in the bdsm sense, there’s no master or sir to it, he just takes control most of the time. He’s very big on laying you out, and worshiping your body from head to toe. Teasing and overstimulation is a huge kink of Wonwoo’s, making you cum over multiple times is a must with him, or he’s not leaving the bed until you do.
L = Location (Favorite places to do the do) [See Risk] Wonwoo doesn’t stray from the bedroom, he’s very private with you. Even PDA is almost nonexistent with Wonwoo, so taking sex outside the bed isn’t likely with him. He does utilize the bedroom though, using the bed, desk, bending you over against a wall, he keeps it interesting but it doesn’t leave the safety of his room.
M = Motivation (What turns them on, gets them going) Wonwoo isn’t easy to turn on. Just a sly kiss or brushing your hand over his crotch isn’t enough to make him pop a boner, he’s very controlled. Sex and getting turned on is a very slow build. He teases, foreplay is extensive, etc. It’s a build. Same with turning him on; heavy making out and some intense dry humping is his biggest turn on and the quickest way to get him aroused.
N = NO (Something they wouldn’t do, turn offs) Public/Exibitionism isn’t flying with Wonwoo, at all. Nearly anything goes in the bedroom, but take him out his private element, and you can’t turn him on, it’s like he’s got an off switch. While he’s dominant-ish, he’s not into titles, roleplaying with sir, master, etc aren’t his type, he doesn’t get into the title and power play sex kind of thing.
O = Oral (Preference in giving or receiving, skill, etc) A master of foreplay and teasing, oral is very positive in his book. Having your hands clutching his, and wiggling in pleasure while he’s busy between your thighs. Wonwoo’s got it down to a T, if someone was to get an award for their tongue, it’d be him. He doesn’t stop until you’ve cum on his tongue. He loves oral, it’s really more just body worship in his mind. Having you unravel on his tongue, you making him quiver from your mouth, oral is a must need during sex with him, it’s a part of the ‘process’.
P = Pace (Are they fast and rough? Slow and sensual? etc.) Wonwoo’s pace is pretty fast and hard, he’s not very rough? His thrusts aren’t going to hurt, but they’re very precise and determined to make you cum around his cock. He’s powerful, but he’s not going to cause you pain or anything.
Q = Quickie (Their opinions on quickies rather than proper sex, how often, etc.) Quickies aren’t a favorable form of sex with Wonwoo, he’s a slow build, without a shit ton of foreplay, he doesn’t cum fast. So quickies, as well as just not liking them, don’t exactly work? Quickies have happened a few times, but on those he’s been turned on all day and just ready to bust, but on the normal day, he just doesn’t want them.
R = Risk (Are they game to experiment, do they take risks, etc.) He’s pretty adventurous and experimental in private; Wonwoo’s very open to different kinks or toys or positions. Almost anything can be given a one time go to see if it’s actually pleasurable or fun.
S = Stamina (How many rounds can they go for, how long do they last…) Wonwoo has a strange stamina, it really depends on what kind of and how long the foreplay and teasing is. If you get right in to sex, he last above average, he can string the sex out anywhere from twenty to thirty minutes, but if foreplay and teasing is extensive, he gets so worked up that he doesn’t last long with the actual sex, pulling barely five to ten minutes. One round is usually it, on the off day, he can pull together a second round but normally, one nut and he’s tapping out.
T = Toy (Do they own toys? Do they use them? On a partner or themselves?) Over time, Wonwoo has accumulated quite the collection. He leans more towards scarves and cloth ties than handcuffs, and various vibrating and stimulating toys, he’s keen on toys just to tease the living hell out of you.
U = Unfair (how much they like to tease) Wonwoo is relentless, safe words were made because of Wonwoo. He can and will tease you until you’re in tears. He’s quite content with just sitting back, toying with you until you feel like you could scream, and just listen to you whine and squirm under his gaze. Doesn’t help his kink is overstimulation, does it?
V = Volume (How loud they are, what sounds they make) In bed, Wonwoo doesn’t say much, he’s of a sound maker. He grunts and moans from the pleasure and effort of his thrusts, at this point, sex is like a work out, he pulls his weight in the bedroom. As he’s closer to cumming, he gets very out of breath, and his sounds downgrade into heavy breathing and panting, before he gets loud as he moans when he finally climaxes. Wonwoo’s not a word guy in the bed, he doesn’t talk, but he’s certainly heard.
W = Wild Card (Get a random headcanon for the character of your choice) Wonwoo’s learned not to get cocky with sex, you’d think after a few times playing with handcuffs, you’d be over the bit of nerves and be fine and dandy, no? Never let your guard down, his dumb ass lost the key for a good twenty minutes until he realized it was in his pants pocket. After that, it was part of kinkier sex that the key was attacked to a string and hung near by in plain sight. No one needs that fright again.
X = X-Ray (Let’s see what’s going on in those pants, picture or words) He’s a t h i c c bitch, Wonwoo’s more on the girth side of things. He’s not gonna….split you in half or anything, but he’s on the shorter side of the spectrum, about 4.5″. Gets the job done, but yeah. Not gonna kill your hole or anything. You will survive, I promise.
Y = Yearning (How high is their sex drive?) Wonwoo’s more on the ‘horny toad’ side of the spectrum, his sex drive tips over the line of normal, higher than typical. He’s really ready to pop some dick at any moment, give him the signal and boner is up and running.
Z = ZZZ (… how quickly they fall asleep afterwards) Although he doesn’t tire out easily, after sex that qualifies as an intense work out, Wonwoo does tap out pretty quick and need some shut eye. As soon as he cums, it’s a race for time to get cleaned up before his eyes close for good.
The album was Fall Out Boy’s breakthrough mainstream success. The title is taken from a line in the 1936 children’s book “The Story of Ferdinand" by Munro Leaf. In the story, a bull named Ferdinand would rather sniff flowers under a cork tree than participate in fights. Commenting on the record’s lyrical themes, Wentz said: "There is honesty in our music, and I think people appreciate it. We have never dumbed down to teenagers by writing songs about being in high school and having your locker jammed… We have always had the respect that they are going to figure out these songs for themselves and come up with their own interpretations.”
Can I have a little fic where Clarke always steals Lexa’s clothes and Lexa doesn’t really mind because Clarke always kisses her to shut her up about it when she asks, but then Clarke steals Lexa’s favorite SnapBack and Lexa will be damned if she gets away with that one. (I absolutely adore your writing, by the way)
“Is that… is that mine?”
“I haven’t seen many lawyers sporting a Mets sweatshirt lately,” Lexa leaned against the counter and surveyed the comfy girl across from her in the quiet of the shop. “Even their own lawyers root for the Yankees.”
“Oh, yeah, uh,” Clarke swallowed and looked down to verify that she was, in fact, wearing a stolen piece of clothing.
Accept that not everyone will understand you, that every soul is its own equation. While you may be little more than senseless gibberish to some, others will need only a single look to get a grasp of who you are. Never dull, dumb down or adjust yourself to fit somewhere you don’t belong.
THE PRINCIPLE OF ANTAGONISM: A protagonist and their story can only be as intellectually fascinating and emotionally compelling as the forces of antagonism make them. We pour energy into the negative side of a story not only to bring the protagonist and other characters to full realization – roles to challenge and attract the world’s finest actors – but to take the story itself to the end of the line, to a brilliant and satisfying climax.

Wanna Be Yours, 5/7 (Olicity, College AU, Explicit)
Summary:College AU. Felicity’s car breaks down in a major rainstorm, sending her walking to the closest house she can find. It just so happens to belong to Oliver Queen, and he’s having a ‘Skivvies Only’ party. (See AO3 for Author’s Notes.)
A/N: The response to the last update was so amazing! Thank you so, so, so much! And quickly, there are two songs that were sent my way that are so Wanna Be Yours that it physically pains me. Four Leaf Clover by Christian Hudson via @ellefraser17 gave me a meltdown on Twitter, and Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur via @onlyhere4olicity had me flailing on the couch this morning. Go listen!
My eternal gratitude to my amazing beta Margaret. She’s the actual best. The actual best.

Wanna Be Yours, Part 5
It took all of Oliver’s
willpower to leave her. How could he not pause to drink her in? The most
beautiful woman he’d ever seen was naked in his bed save for his shirt still
hanging off her shoulders, looking up at him with the softest smile. Every bit
of him had itched to reach out for her, to take even just one more minute.
Rolling out of bed had been hard
enough - literally hard enough. It was a damn miracle he didn’t bust through
his briefs, especially when he had to watch her sit up on his bed like it was
the most natural thing in the world, like they hadn’t just decided this was a
thing a short second ago.
She must have been able to read
his mind because her mouth parted, her eyes darkening as she looked up at him.
God, her eyes… He could look into them for days, swim in their beauty, drown in
the fact that now when she looked at him, he saw the same desire he felt for
can we talk about isabelle lightwood for a sec, like thank you shadowhunters for finally bringing a wickedly smart woman to my screen that isn’t ashamed of her intelligence and isn’t afraid to show off that she’s the smartest in the room, while still maintaining her sexiness, her humor, her bravery and her ability to make mistakes and learn from them!!!
