who's your favorite Lois Lane actress? I just got curious all of a sudden and I don't think I've ever seen you say which one :)

Saying “all of them” would be cheating, wouldn’t it? Oh well. My top three Lois Lane actresses (roughly in this order are):

  1. Erica Durance (Smallville)
  2. Dana Delany (Superman: The Animated Series)
  3. Margot Kidder (Superman)

piginpetticoats  asked:

asha greyjoy?

for u and an anon, hello anon!

  1. Do you love/hate/don’t feel strongly about this character? i LOVE asha greyjoy in a way i don’t really get to talk about ever and i think should be talked about more?  she’s george’s thesis on feminine power in masculine spaces as opposed to the default of masculine power being used by feminine characters and how it’s predicated on the acceptance/support of the patriarchy itself— ‘kraken’s daughter’ asha, ‘wayward bride’ asha, ‘king’s prize’ asha, always-defined-by-the-men-in-her-life asha, who is even thus never anything more or less than herself, and the power that comes with that.
  2. What’s your favorite trait of this character? how much she truly is loyal to and loves the ways of the ironborn, despite the place she was born into amongst them and their place among the larger westerosi culture. 
  3. What’s your favorite moment/even involving this character? i love that she fails at the queensmoot?  that despite being the truest and most qualified ironborn heir they’re still too set in the old ways to accept her, and that it triggers for her a journey to take it from them (because, ultimately, in westeros, no one is ever going to give you anything the way you want, particularly power, qv robb stark) and earn it on her terms rather than theirs (and her terms are just.  a more feminist version of theirs.)
  4. If you could have one power/attribute/etc. of this character, what would it be? YO I WANT TO COMMAND A BOAT
  5. Have you ever pictured this character naked? only in the service of reading sex scenes
  6. When did you fall in love/hate with this character? I you don’t have any strong feelings toward them, why not? didn’t everyone fall in love with her at the reveal in theon ii, like
  7. Who’s your OTP for this character? nobody.  someone unimportant.  she’s going to give the seastone chair to her bastard daughters.

piginpetticoats replied to your post: I really dont like my brothers fiance (And I need to get it out)

Oh god that sounds terrible. Ugh Im sorry you have to deal with shitty people :(

I feel horrible for my mom because she is supporting them and all she wanted was a nice brunch. And this girl was fighting with my mom too. It’s like mom just paid a ton of money for this champagne brunch, have some damn respect. 

Like those post could have been pages and pages longer with their fuckery.

irasciblecoxswain replied to your post: so true. you know that if gus was played by some beige white dude everyone would be all about shipping him with shawn

lmfao god psych fandom is one of the MOST DEFENSIVE fandoms when it comes to this, too

looool ikr

I GUESS WHEN YOU ARE THAT SKETCH YOU ARE THAT MUCH MORE SENSITIVE TO WELL-DESERVED SHADE

in other words, they know they wrong

piginpetticoats replied to your post: every once in a while i remember how there is…

I’ve always been really confused about psych fandom’s shipping decisions

it has always saddened me because unfortunately i COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND why the fandom has that particular shape

piginpetticoats said: do you think the other sherlocks are primarily in a different house than ravenclaw?

it depends on the adaptation– i think the original, acd holmes is a ravenclaw, and so is the jeremy brett holmes (as really the most faithful adaptation so far).   cummerbund holmes is a slytherin and rdj holmes is a hufflepuff so we’ve really got all our bases covered lately!!

Thats awful, it sucks that he is taking advantage of her and she is letting him.

Two Christmases ago her sisters staged an intervention about it. She flipped out and walked out. She keeps asking how we expect her to turn her back on her own child. She just won’t listen to reason unfortunately.

people with poor table manners just really mess me up. its so distracting when people just wont be like??? why cant they just not be rude?

Because they don’t know how, I think. That is the problem. If it isn’t about them, they can’t wrap their head around it. They have no capacity for compassion or empathy or respect. 

piginpetticoats replied to your post: piginpetticoats replied to your post: …

Jesus Im so sorry :( I cant even imagine. Ugh I would not be able to deal with your brother he sounds absolutely awful. The whole thing sounds so frustrating bb Im sorry

True story, when I left for college, I never spoke to either my brother or my mother unless my father was involved. When my dad died, there were about two years when I had little to no contact with them. It wasn’t until my aunt called to tell me how bad things were with my mom that it changed. I still don’t talk to my brother unless my mom is involved. 

piginpetticoats said: the very notion that stelena smut exists where elena DOESN’T top stefan is baffling to my understanding of the characters and their relationship. ELENA TOPS THE FUCK OUT OF STEFAN ALWAYS AND FOREVER

well stefan physically tops in several of their sex scenes. BUT ELENA LEADS IT ALLLLLL. LIKE SERIOUSLY. THE FIRST TIME THEY HAD SEX. IT WAS AT HIS HOUSE. AND SHE LEAD HIM TO STEFAN’S ROOM. SHE’D NEVER BEEN IN THERE BEFORE. BUT SHE TOOK HIM BY THE HAND AND LED HIM THERE. AND HE FOLLOWED HER.

AND IT HITS SO MANY OF MY KINKS I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DOOOOOOOOOOOOO

piginpetticoats replied to your post: piginpetticoats replied to your post: I really…

Your mom is supporting them and they still act like this?!?!? Ugh I cant believe theyre so disrespectful. Your mom deserves better

Yup. She pays all their bills. She pays rent for them in a pretty nice apartment in Tempe and all the apartment bills, she pays for their groceries, for her car insurance, my brother’s medical bills. There is not a single thing that my mom does not pay for. 

Meanwhile my husband and I are paying HER bills because she can’t handle two households. She has no retirement money left because since my father died in 2011, she has been supporting my brother as he lives in Tempe. She co-signed student loans for him and he defaulted, so they came after her. She had to settle them because she works for the government and they were going to garnish her wages, which is a fireable offence under her code of ethics. 

My mother is literally broke while my brother and his fiance go out to dinner every night. She has sold off every investment she had and the only thing she has left is her house, which he has pushed her to sell to give him the money from the sale. Then she’ll be homeless. My brother does not care. I know it is my mom’s own fault but she refuses to tell my brother no. He plays up his disability to get her to feel sorry for him. She tells me she can’t let him live on the street (but it was fine for me when I was having trouble). She told me I can take care of myself but he can’t. So it’s like all very complicated. 

Basically I hate my brother (and I almost never use that word) and I don’t care much for my mother but I have a cultural obligation and a promise I made to my father to take care of her. So I’m stuck.
