I didn’t expect them to have slept together, but I’m not complaining at all because it made me smile so big and feel so happy. And Kara got him flowers and coffee. Both of them were so cute in that opening scene :)
but it seems his excitement got the better of him (oh you overeager space puppy)
and Kara had a right to be unhappy about that. He needs to learn to listen, and he is, he definitely is taking advice from Winn to heart and it’s wonderful to see. He’s right, Mon El. Listen to Kara, and be attentive to what she needs. Fortunately, by the end, he was doing just that.
from Mon El’s outside perspective, someone new was coming to the DEO, and because Jeremiah is familiar to everyone, they gave him a pass, which is understandable, because they were so happy to have him back, but that was their downfall.
Mon El probably could’ve voiced his concerns more respectfully, but he was right to question something that has Cadmus involved.
plus, he apologized to Jeremiah and even became more respectful about his suspicions. But Jeremiah used Mon El’s past against him, a past he is trying to overcome.
Kara cared about the truth; it wasn’t about Mon El’s side, it was also Winn, and it was the fact that Cadmus is not to be trusted. I get why Alex said what she said, but even I think it was harsh.
and even though I can understand how Cadmus threatened Alex and that’s ultimately why Jeremiah works with them, it still sucks that he wasn’t what Alex or Kara or Eliza thought, and that hurts. Same for J’onn. He thought his friend was back, the one who saved him from Hank. I wonder how all these plot points will resolve.
and it makes defeating Cadmus more complicated because, as we saw, Alex can’t kill her own father. Man, last season it was Kara’s family making things messy, now it’s Alex’s turn (I know it’s Kara’s Earth family, but the comparison still works)
at least Alex has Maggie to help her. Same with Mon El and Kara; like I said, he showed that he is learning by the end of the episode. He and Kara both have to figure out how this relationship works, and I think they will come out all the stronger for it.
spending today catching up on orders and prepping for ECCC
some stuff coming up:
1) we’re moving to a new place!!!! my brother is coming back home after graduating so we needed another room. i’m just glad that i make enough to help/contribute now. it’s gonna be awesome because he hasn’t had his own room in years and slept in our dining room instead. this probably means that march will be fucking awful though because i’ll be juggling cons, etsy, and moving so please send me good vibes!
2) my mom’s mammogram results are this wed! please send her good vibes too bc she’s worried!!
I’ve got this idea for a fic that Lena comes home one afternoon and this thing pops it’s head up over the back of her couch and she calls for Kara because why the fuck is there some weird creature in their apartment? And Kara comes out looking all guilty saying she found this little alien thing being sold in an underground, alien pet, black market and she couldn’t just leave it there so she decided to take it home and she’s already named it something stupid like Noodle or Fluffy and now she’s holding it up in front of Lena trying to convince her it needs a home and Lena really wants to say no but it’s kinda cute in a really ugly sorta way and she already has an alien girlfriend so why not add an alien pet to the mix?
As the days went by, Luna was mentally and physically preparing herself for the date. She had no clue if the weird feeling in her stomach was from excitement or from the nervousness, as it was her first date in a while.
The days she was at work, she found more ways to continue and expand her research extraterrestrial life. She had got a few unidentified DNA samples from a co-worker and brand new space rocks that some astronauts had brought back as they just returned from one of their expeditions. Luna could say that she was enjoying work, and she knew that this is what she was meant to be doing.
The day before the date, Luna decided not to go straight home, she needed to take a breather, relax, so she decided to go explore the next town over. She wanted to wait for Jason to show her around the city.
While Luna was exploring, she had found a different, mystical like alternative world, Luna was defiantly going to be coming back here to take samples and explore more. It was already getting late, and she wanted to be well rested, as Jason had told Luna that he would be picking her up around 11am, he had a whole day worth of events for the date.
The ultimate revenge. She jets off around the world, seemingly to keep John safe… just like Sherlock did in The Reichenbach Fall.
Except, here comes the diabolical bit. This is Mary taunting Sherlock, twisting the knife in further: she is saying all the things Sherlock wanted to say when he came back to John in The Empty Hearse, but couldn’t.
That’s why her letter to John is so melodramatic: She is mocking Sherlock, imitating what he would be like writing such a love letter to John. Just make a few alterations and imaging this is Sherlock writing to John, if he was able to let him know that he was simply ‘leaving’ during The Reichenbach Fall:
My darling, I need to tell you this because you mustn’t hate me for going away.I gave myself permission to have an ordinary life. I’m not running, I promise you that, I just need to do this in my own way.
But I don’t want you and Sherlock hanging off my gun arm, I’m sorry, my love. I know you’ll try to find me but there is no point. Every move is random and not even Sherlock Holmes you can anticipate the roll of a dice. I need to move the target far, far away from youand Rosie, and then I’ll come back, my darling. I swear I will.
Sherlock was trying to ‘give himself permission’ to have ‘an ordinary life’, to fall in love.
And then, Mary goes one step further. She imitates what Sherlock would have liked to say to John during his reunion with him in The Empty Hearse:
You’re always a good man, John, I’ve never doubted that. You never judge, you never complain. I don’t deserve you, I… All I ever wanted to do was keep youand Rosiesafe, that’s all.
This is her revenge, excruciatingly painful for Sherlock. She is throwing all of his deeply intimate, unspoken words out into the open, spitting them back in his face. She is saying: See? This is what could have happened to you, but it didn’t. You’ve failed.
For the last day of this week I decided to finally draw some of my Aradia’s headcanons. Since I’ve always been uncertain on how to draw her hair, I jwent for this option; kinda wavy before, straight in her dead forms and really messy once she comes back to life! I don’t know why I have this need to make her hair different based on her emotions and mental state, I just…need it.
I need a fic where Supergirl and Livewire exchange hate mail regularly…
Kara randomly just receives a postcard from hawaii or new zealand or france saying: Saw you get beat up on the news… your form is off… coming for ya blondie…
Livewire always hangs around long enough to get return mail, usually on the back of a gaudy greeting card that Kara found in some back alley gift shop, filled with a really bad pun and a quip about Supergirl being in top shape…
Then once a year, they meet up… beat the absolute crap out of each other, then part ways…
2 weeks later, Kara receives another postcard from Tahiti… bet you wish you were here instead of in a hospital bed… that was a nasty fall you took… shame you’re bulletproof…
The last thing I wanted from her was for her to hold back. I needed her emotions to come down on me like a hail storm. I needed her to show me that she still cared. I just needed her. And if needing her meant losing her, then that was the way it would be.
consider this: Stephanie is a dancer and she has a performance coming up so Sportacus brings her to a tailor/designer (Robbie) to get her a really special outfit and Robbie actually listens to her ideas (”no, that’s stupid. don’t skimp on the sparkles” “what do you take me for? of course I can make it easy to dance in”) and comes up with the perfect costume so Sportacus brings her back the next time she needs a costume (”back again? really? like I didn’t spend enough time on you already”) and somehow they become regulars and one time Sportacus comes in without Stephanie and idles around, looking over a bunch of fabrics while Robbie watches with an unimpressed expression until finally Robbie sighs and just “are you going to ask me out or are you going to keep wasting both of our time because I’m fairly certain orange isn’t part of your whole monochromatic theme”
Pearl is the only one who actually decided that they needed to stop trying to get Rose back.
Amethyst and Garnet keep trying to get Rose to come back in their own ways, and don’t know what to do when their plans fail.
So Pearl takes Steven and thinks she’s probably just going to poof him, NOT kill him, and when he reforms he’ll just reform as Rose. I don’t even think she thought what she was doing could even result in the death of Steven.
And yet, she stops herself either way. Knowing that Rose, the love of her life, wanted to do this more than anything. She thinks removing his gem will bring Rose back and she STILL decides to respect what Rose originally wanted.
And that’s how much she loves Rose. But now 14 years later and with so much growth, Pearl has come to love Steven with everything in her. And I don’t think for one freaking second that she resents him today.
I love this character and I will continue to defend her to the end of time sorry.
Was reminded today that our words often carry a lot more weight with our students than we think. Especially at this time of year when it starts to feel like no one is listening. Did a writing conference for a student today- one of six I did that period trying to finish before the weekend. Gave her feedback and a simple compliment on how much she’s improved in writing over this year so far. She came back after school, knocked on my locked door with tears welling, just to say she appreciated the encouragement, that it had been a tough week and she had really needed to hear something positive today. And I told her, that honestly, I had been having a tough week myself, and that her coming to tell me that was something I really needed to hear today, too.
It’s kind of her to have referenced me as an influence…ultimately, I bet we’re probably just two people cut from the same cloth. I’m influenced by her. I think one of her secret weapons is how unconventional she is. In my case, it’s probably something that holds me back. It makes me more left of center. But somehow, she brings the center to that. She’s a great writer, and a great musician, and has been a great friend to me. I get really angry when people pick on her. I know a lot of superstars — remember, I’m not one, but I know a lot of them. And she is the most normal superstar I’ve ever met in my life. I think that says everything you need to know about Taylor Swift. When people come up just a little bit after you and say you were important to them? It doesn’t matter if they’re a superstar, or it’s somebody who comes and says hello to you while you’re standing at the merch table and says, ‘Hey, I started playing guitar because of this song you wrote.’ It’s an incredibly fulfilling, yet humbling thing to hear.

Headcanon: Kara always tries to stay awake until Lena gets home late from work but she’s really bad at it. So she always half asleep on the couch with some tv show playing when Lena gets home. And lena just sighs and shakes her head grinning at Kara’s face smooshed into a pillow and she goes to their room to get into pajamas before coming back and turning off the tv and waking up Kara with soft forehead kisses and whispered babes and gently pulls on her hand guiding a half asleep murmuring kara to their bedroom.
Deep within the bowels of the CW, four people in suits stand around a cauldron labeled ‘Supergirl Season 2’.
Suit #1: Alright everyone, now this was the easiest brew yet, CBS gave us most of their ingredients, we just need to wrap this up with some personal touches. We’ve already added our own experience with making superhero shows from the Arrowverse, but I was thinking we could do something extra…let’s make Alex Danvers gay. It’s not like she had a love interest for people to get mad at us about, and after her wardrobe in Taxi Brooklyn half the internet is convinced Chyler is gay anyway. Now then…anyone know where we can find some Gay?
Suits #2-4 perk up and all run in opposite directions. Eventually Suit #2 comes back carrying a five gallon bucket full or rainbow liquid.
Suit #2: Hey, a friend gave me this. It’s the left over gay from Rookie Blue. There’s not much since the finale ended with the one lesbian main character having sex with another girl and being about to adopt a child, and none of the lesbians in the show got killed or went evil, but it should work.
Pours the rainbow liquid into the red and blue liquid of the show. Suit #1 looks in at the new mixture, Alex has a light rainbow aura now, but it could be waved off by the straights if they really wanted to. Suit #1 pats Suit #2 on the shoulder.
Suit #1: That’s just the right amount of gay! Good job!
Suit #2 walks off pleased. Moments later a forklift pulls up carrying a 50 gallon drum with a nozzle at the bottom, which Suit #3 aligns with the cauldron.
Suit #1: Uh…what is that?
Suit #3: Oh, this is all the leftover gay from The 100! Given the backlash we got from killing Lexa I thought it only right to apply it to our new show as a sort of apology.
Suit #1: Well that’s a very nice thought but we already added 5 gallons of gay to the season, I think that’s enough…
Suit #3 ignores Suit #1 and opens the nozzle, pouring more rainbow colored liquid directly into the cauldron.
Suit #1: Oh…okay…well alright
Suit #1 looks into the mixture as Suit #3 drives away. Alex is unmistakably, Kristen Stewart, Tegan and Sara levels of gay now, and a new character, Maggie Sawyer, appears to have materialized. Moreover the presence of Katie McGrath is drastically multiplying it, and now there’s a light rainbow coating to Kara, Winn, and Mon-El too.
Suit #1: Oh well, I guess this will just get us a cult following now. Shipping wars are always good. Plus Kara’s got a canon relationship with a guy, and Winn was with this universe’s terrible version of Siobhan Smythe, so it should balance out. We’ll just have to add a few more James/Kara dates. Wait…what’s that sound?
The massive door used for truck deliveries opens and a cement mixer backs up towards the cauldron, it’s spout lowering onto said cauldron.
Suit #1: …What the hell?
Suit #4 hops out beaming.
Suit #4: Well after TNT ended Rizzoli & Isles…
Suit #1: Are you insane? You can’t dump all the leftover gay from Rizzoli & Isles in here! We’re trying to make a superhero show, not the L Word set in the DC universe!
Suit #4: Oh no, this isn’t all of it, this isn’t even half. Disney bought A LOT of it to spread out among their own stuff, Star Wars, and Marvel, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network both bought a bit, NBC and CBS bought some,and most of what we got the movie people took for the Amazon Island in Wonder Woman and the standalone Harley Quinn movie they’re working on. No, this is just what was left over.
Suit #1 stares in shock as Suit #4 hits a button and a river of rainbow liquid flows out into the cauldron. When it’s all done J'onn is the only one of the main cast NOT coated in gay, the James/Kara relationship has ended by the end of the first episode, and Katie McGrath doesn’t seem to have realized that she wasn’t supposed to have brought the leftover gay from Dracula with her and directed it all solely as Kara. Even Winn and Mon-El are super gay now! And while the prevailing colors of the season are still blue and red, there’s an undeniable rainbow under coat.
Oh my god. What if Barry and Cisco pull Kara into their Earth to help fight the aliens, and right before she comes back to her own Earth, she freezes, struck by the sight of she and Cat’s doppelgängers together, strolling hand in hand, stealing a kiss in front of the Central or Star City Christmas tree after a long day of shopping for Carter and Alex, and everything in her whole life just clicks. Everything suddenly makes sense, and she goes back, and she cannot stop thinking about what she has seen. And she needs to find Cat immediately. Oh my god.
Can we talk about how this is Jess Mariano doing what he’s always done: challenging Rory Gilmore and making her better. How many times has he come back into her life and helped her just when she needed it the most? Not “saved” her like she said Logan had. Jess (since he matured, and even before then) makes her better. He keeps her reaching and trying. And here he is again, back to lift up the woman y'all KNOW he’s not over, because he knows she is capable of so much. *sigh*
