otp: i believe in us

Hey so I’m thinking about Kara and M’gann again and I wrote some stuff because goddamn it I am gonna build this city from the ground up if it’s the last thing I do.

strange girls in a strange land

It’s never a secret. For the first time in Kara’s thirteen years on Earth, there’s no great revelation. There isn’t anything to reveal.

This weight that she’s carried with her into every relationship outside the Danvers that she’s ever tried to build since she landed—it suddenly becomes inconsequential, when they’re together. The fact that Kara is Kryptonian, that she is Supergirl. The distinction between Kara Danvers and Kara Zor-El and National City’s resident hero. The deception; the disguise.

There’s no pretense between them, no pretending, no parts to play. They meet in the ring as Supergirl and Miss Martian, and then a few days later Kara Danvers shows up at the alien bar—and M’gann knows. It’s not something she needs to deduce or figure out after they’ve known each other a while. She just looks at Kara and she knows—it’s just a simple unconscious observation, as clear to see as the gold of Kara’s hair or the blue of her eyes.

M’gann slides Kara an Aldebaran rum and Kara doesn’t even realize that she’s still wearing her glasses.

I talked to my boss about politics today because he was voting early (busy tomorrow). Normally this is a terrifying concept because he’s a staunch Liberal voter but he did mention he’s not quite set on them this time round for the state election so we discussed it. His reasoning for Liberals: better economic management. I pointed out that WA is really bad off economically… He rebutted with bringing up two things that were federal issues, not state (and also not that great reasons for Liberals being better anyway) and admitted he didn’t know as much about politics as I did. This was a great opportunity to point out how other parties had better policies (and why) and so even though he didn’t confirm who he was voting for he did leave with the impression of doubt in Liberals. It gives me a bit of faith in the election tomorrow. So remember everyone: have political discussions with people. Their opinions aren’t always as set in stone as you think. You can actually change them for the better.

So…my friend and I are just a teensy tiny bit dramatic…

Sappho’s Reply:
My voice rings down through thousands of years
To coil around your body and give you strength,
You who have wept in direct sunlight,
Who have hungered in invisible chains,
Tremble to the cadence of my legacy:
An army of lovers shall not fail.

Rita Mae Brown, 1971

we’re going to be ok. it might take a while, but i know we will see a brighter future. I believe in us, and I believe in the strength and love of our communities. if you need anybody to talk to, I, and I know countless others are here. we will get through this together, and we will prevail.

ARMYs, I know that lately it hasn’t been the greatest time for our fandom. Despite all the harsh things that were done and said, I only hope we take this as a learning experience. I hope we learn that words are like a double edged sword, it has the power to uplift but destroy as well. I hope that now and in the future, we choose to uplift people with our words, instead of hurt others. Likewise for our actions, I hope none of us lose our temper, but instead rationally see how we can improve each other has human beings. That is the wonderful thing about life, like the heart monitor that indicates we’re alive, it is not a straight line, but one with multiple jumps, going up and down. Meaning, as we have great times, we will also have bad times as well. I hope we realize that the boys are human beings just like us, and they too can feel both the positive and negative emotions. Though they will never show us when they’re sad, the least we can do as ARMYs is to make them feel safe and supported. Just like any skyscraper in the world, without a strong, supportive base, the skyscraper will surely crumble. I hope ARMYs can be the supportive base for Bangtan so they can reach higher for their dreams and goals.

To whom it may concern, 

In the nearly 10 years that I have known Luke Danes, I have come to know him as an honest and decent man. He’s also one of the most kind and caring persons I have ever met. I’m a single mother, and I raised my daughter by myself, but once Luke Danes became my friend in this town, I never really felt alone. Luke and I have had our ups and downs over the years, but through it all, his relationship with my daughter, Rory, has never changed. He’s always been there for her no matter what. He was there to celebrate her birthdays. He was there cheering her on at her high school graduation. Luke has been a sort of father figure in my daughter’s life. With his own daughter, Luke wasn’t given the opportunity to be there for her first 12 years, but he should be given that opportunity now. Once Luke Danes is in your life, he is in your life forever. I know from personal experience what an amazing gift that is, and not to allow him access to his daughter would be to seriously deprive her of all this man has to offer, and he offers so much. Thank you for your time. 

Sincerely, Lorelai Gilmore
