relationships cw

anonymous asked:

To be fair, Thea, Laurel Lance, and Captain Cold all had amazing character development outside of heterosexual relationships so The CW can do it. Ok, maybe not the best example because they are dead but Mon-El would most likely be dead or taking a really long nap by the end of the season.

oh yes yet another thing The CW excels at KILLING and/or SIDELINING   CHARACTERS FOR NO APPARENT REASON

OKAY SUPERCORP/KARAMEL RANT

**Please read** This all really needs to be said. However, before I go further I want you all to understand that this isn’t meant to be a hate paragraph or to purposefully put those who like Mon-El and/or Karamel down. At this point, all the disagreeing and fighting will do nothing. So I’m asking kindly that if you’re going to add something to this post- that it is filled with positive intent. 

 Anyhow, to my point:

I do watch Supergirl by the way, but I truly believe this concerns a wide variety of people. Whether you’re a fan of The 100, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Walking Dead, or just a person living your life… All I hope is that we all try to grasp the reality of what is truly going on. Now I will centralize this long rant towards Supergirl however. For those of you who don’t know what is going on there is a conflict between fans who ship this character, Mon-El, together with Supergirl/Kara and fans who ship Lena Luthor with Supergirl/Kara. Now, in my humble opinion, the big issue isn’t about straight v.s lgbt people and I will go on about that later… but the fact that she is with someone like Mon-El. Now what do I mean by ‘someone like Mon-El’… before certain people get mad I want to emphasize that I’m simply pointing out what happened in the show. 

This is long as hell just fyi.

1) The way Mon-El reacts to most things is through violence. In fact, the moment he wakes up he chokes Kara. And there’s this: 

(his words in white)

And the scene where Mon-El robs Brian; using his powers for selfish reasons.

He even calls her names. And notice how he does this the moment Kara disagrees with him. A reaction that does more harm than good. On the other hand, when Kara and Lena disagree on something (in ep. 2x03) they simply talk it out. They ask questions, explain, clarify, and come to an understanding.

Now, I’m not here to say that I have NEVER agreed with anything Mon-El has said, actually I applaud him for accepting Maggie and Alex’s relationship the way he did, but that’s just the thing. The opinions/beliefs he has don’t come from himself. Most of what he thinks is based off of what he’s seen on Daxam. He really isn’t at all mature. He isn’t by any means and it’s simply the truth. Now hear me out-

This is what I mean by he isn’t mature: How many times has Kara asked him politely and specifically not to do something but without hesitation still does it? And how many times has he had to beg for forgiveness? 

In addition, he doesn’t have knowledge of what respect truly means. What’s interesting though about this scene in particular- is how it’s supposed to be a ‘funny’ scene. Mon-El’s character is written in as ‘funny’ and ‘aloof’… but it sends a poisonous message- that Kara’s feelings aren’t to be taken seriously. And this show is literally supposed to be about her. Not a guy who thinks it’s his duty to ‘defend her honor’ and then complains about it.

Now I know that this was how people on Daxam acted and their way of life was for the most part, sexist, racist, etc. But that still doesn’t give him an excuse to act the way he does. 

2) Lena herself comes from a family with twisted values as well. She is adopted into the Luthor family and has had close to no friends most of her life. And yet she’s still capable of being a perfectly decent person. 

She does save the alien population not once, but twice. So not only is Lena proved time and time again that she’s a good person, but her relationship with Kara (btw I call it a ‘relationship’ just like the writers do)… is not even close to toxic, detrimental, or abusive. It’s the complete opposite.

Protect yourself”

“I can take care of myself”

3) Being in a healthy relationship is about the effort between two willing people… at the same time, knowing your boundaries whilst encouraging one another.

4) Kara deserves someone who fully acknowledges her efforts and is grateful for them

all the relationships in pushing daisies |→ ned and olive

“I was awful and I’m ashamed of myself because I know what it feels like to be abandoned, how you think you’re worthless and unloveable and your heart hardens to the person who did it to you. Forgiving them is inconceivable. So I know I have no right to ask for your forgiveness, but I still wanna tell you…I’m sorry.”

Human Shield - A SuperCorp fic

I don’t always have time to make complete comics. I work. A LOT. But this was a really interesting idea I wanted to explore. And @luthoring​ encouraged me, sooooo… here you go.

Beyond the cut is the result, expanding on this comic. Written entirely from Lena’s perspective.

Fair warning: there is violence, injury, and angst.

The thing I remember most, looking back on my abusive relationships, is that whenever I was angry about the way I was being treated and tried to confront my abuser it was never a fight about what I was angry about. He always made it a fight about me being angry. He always made it seem like my anger was the problem, not my abuse.

Abusers will make you believe that the abuse isn’t the problem, that your ‘irrational’ anger is the problem.

Do not misunderstand what I’m gonna say.

I mean, I am really happy that for once, we do have a lesbian relationship coming on a great tv show. Also, Alex is one of the major characters of Supergirl, so this is completely cool. If we forget that we are on the CW and well… We saw what happens to Lexa. But that’s not the point here.

I love the idea to have a lesbian relationship, I like Alex and Maggie. But come on guys. Don’t you see that there is so much chemistry between Lena and Kara ? I mean, their smiles when they see each others, their pouts, their gazes… Compare to Maggie/Alex, this is something bigger. I don’t really know what the writers are doing : I mean, this is obvious that there is something between Lena and Kara, we can’t miss it. But what is the point if this is for nothing ? Are they playing with our feelings again ? Because, come on, Alex being gay is not such a surprise. But something like Kara falling for Lena, it could be a real deal. It could have a real impact on the LGBT community on tv shows. It would be so much important, so much bigger and cooler.

So yes, I am happy to see Alex coming out. But I’m much more interested in another relationship. Kara and Lena share something and this is a real alchemy, I am not inventing it.

EDIT : and please, don’t interprete my message in the wrong way. Of course Alex’s coming out will have a impact for the lgbt community. I love woman, so I’m excited by all of this. I’m just saying, having THE main character of the show coming out too… well, it will be huge.

An abuser can seem emotionally needy. You can get caught in a trap of catering to him, trying to fill a bottomless pit. But he’s not so much needy as entitled, so no matter how much you give him, it will never be enough. He will just keep coming up with more demands because he believes his needs are your responsibility, until you feel drained down to nothing.

Did Bob Morley Really Just...

Call Bellamy’s relationship with Clarke more vulnerable and open than Gina’s connection to him?

And say that Bellamy and Clarke’s partnership is important in season 4.

Plus added that his scenes with Eliza were “quite good” and fans will enjoy them.

And also wore a Bellarke hat.

Did the Bellarke fandom just resurrect from the dead? I think so.

Abusive relationships

Friendly reminder to anyone out there who is/were in abusive relationships, whether that be friend, family, spouse, or other type of relationship…

Someone can seem very “perfect” and “nice” on the outside and be absolute shit some/all of the time when other people aren’t around.

No, you are not crazy. I promise. People are not going to see what you see because abusers are insanely good at putting on a show.

Everyone else, please keep that in mind before making assumptions about the inner workings of someone else’s relationship.

laurel: *calls Oliver out on his bullshit, does heroic stuff to help people despite Oliver wanting to keep her safe, and ones up Oliver*

0licity fandom: ERHmaGAWd, she is SoOO disrespectful - THIS is OLIbluR’S shoW!

felicity: *completely disrespects oliver, berates him with insults towards his path to change and who he is, talks shit about him to the team and to his face and does things behind his back for her own benefit*

0licity fandom: what a strong woman, they are my OTP, see she is so perfect for him.

pretty sure that’s abusive on felicity’s end…

Bughead Life

I mean I knew would ship Bughead since the first time I knew they would interact, and I mean the pictures of them just sold it for me. And Jughead playing Rebel Without a Cause for Betty… I mean that was just icing on the cake 😍😭! But I did not think they would take over my life to the point where I live and breathe them and expectantly wait for any news of them. Yup, it’s official they have taken over my life.
