Long post ahoy.

So it‘s National Autism Awareness Month and in the spirit of I thought I would put together a collection of some of my and my wife’s autistic female faves from fiction. (We’re both on the spectrum and we both love finding characters who are too.) Some are ones I’ve seen around these parts before; we’ll be glad to give you receipts for all of them.

Bennett Halverson (Summer Glau, Dollhouse) Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi, Pacific Rim) Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon, Ghostbusters) Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet, Agents of SHIELD)

Misty Knight (Simone Missick, Luke Cage/Defenders) The Dag (Abbey Lee, Mad Max: Fury Road) Luna Lovegood (Evanna Lynch, Harry Potter) Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones)

Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie, Game of Thrones) Winifred Burkle (Amy Acker, Angel) Honey Lemon (Génesis Rodriguez, Big Hero 6) Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen, MCU)

Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge, Agents of SHIELD) Missandei (Nathalie Emanuel, Game of Thrones) Ami Mizuno (various, Sailor Moon) Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon, Legally Blonde)

Knives Chau (Ellen Wong, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World) Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly, Warehouse 13) Twilight Sparkle (Tara Strong, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) Christine Daaé (Emmy Rossum, The Phantom of the Opera)

This is a scene from tonight’s new episode (5.11 aka #59) of True Blood featuring Lucy Griffiths and Valentina Cervi that I filmed for the lovely Truebies out there that wish to indulge their shipper hearts. It’s not the best quality considering that I just aimed my iPad at the TV, but it will suffice until the higher quality bootlegs come along. Enjoy! <3 Nik
