Kara: “What is it?” Lena: “It’s an Alien Detection Device that allows humans to find out who among them is not truly one of them.” Kara: “……” Lena: “It’s not marked yet. I mean, we’re still developing the prototype, but we aim to have this device in every store, in every town all across America.” Kara: “How does it work?” Lena: “It’s just a simple skin test. Okay, let me show you how a negative response looks like…” Kara: “…” Lena: “See? Now you try.” Kara: “……………………..” Kara: “B-but what do you mean with ‘alien detection’?? Alien as if ‘extremely weird’??? ‘Cause girl, let me tell ya, that thing is gonna go real red in that case!!” Lena: “No, Kara, it means actual ali-” Kara: “A-a-and what if it detects awkwardness??? Huh???? Guess you didn’t think about that!! Hell, you’ve got a big, fat alien right here, right now if it works like that!!” Lena: “Kara…” Kara: “And w-what if it works lik-” Lena: “OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE KARA, YOU LITERALLY JUST SAID YOU FLEW HERE, DO YOU THINK I DON’T KNOW?? DO THAT FREAKING TEST, I HAVE TO CHECK IF THE RED LED WORKS!!”
Story time: I love this fandom so much but I still can’t believe this happened
I went into Starbucks today and used the name Danvers because I’m a fangirling nerd. When the barista called “Danvers,” another girl waiting for her drink replied “Sawyer.” So I looked around to see who it was because obviously she got the reference and must be super cool. But I couldn’t find her anywhere until I saw eyes following me as I went up to get my drink. Now, I’m super awkward and shy so I just smiled and looked away. Then I heard “Supergay” being called from the barista and she came up next to me to get her drink and smiled at me. I nearly about lost it because who meets a fangirl like this….like this is only fanfiction stuff, right? I tried to say hi to her and play it cool as if I wasn’t internally freaking out inside but in actuality was really awkward and couldn’t form real english words..oops. She just laughed and asked me if I had some time and wanted to hang out. So I nodded since I was speechless because again when does this happen in real life. Ive only ever read this kind of stuff in fanfics or dreamt of/imagined this (I know, I’m a total dork). We had a fantastic time talking about Supergirl, its fandoms and other shows. Turns out, we go to college near each other (small world, eh?) and have a fair amount of commonalities. Unfortunately, I had to run to a class cutting the fangirling time short but before I could leave, she grabbed a pen out of nowhere ( A+ for girl scout preparedness) and my hand as she wrote her number and told me to text her sometime so we can do this again. I’m legitimately about to faint but hold myself up against the table and do my best to verbalize ok because what else was I going to say. This never happens to me. I had a million questions and thoughts running through my head like what does this mean? Why did this happen? How did this happen? Is this for real? Am I being pranked right now? Did my friends put you up to this? Is this just friendly? Are you being serious? Can you tell I don’t know what I’m doing? When is it approrpiate for me to text you? What do I say next? I say see you around because why not quote Maggie Sawyer and left before I did something utterly embarrasing. I was almost late to class but made sure I added her number to my phone before I did anything else. Now, I’m sitting in my room staring at my phone with an empty text message screen unsure of what to say or when to say it. All I got is hi haha. I am not smooth enough/ too awkward to know how to do this but here goes nothing.
If you read this, thanks for taking the time to hear about my awkwardness. But note that pleasant surprises are what make life great. However this moment turns out, I’m just glad it happened. I didn’t feel as alone or scared as I have in the last few days for once. She reminded me to always have hope. For that, I am truly thankful and she may never know this. I hope some day she will know the kindness and care she is spreading in the world. If she somehow ends up reading this, you are really one special person that the world could not live without.
tbh one of my favorite concepts in ace attorney worldbuilding is the idea of apollo meeting franziska and he expects her to be her usual insulting, whip-wielding self that he’s heard horror stories about
only for her to do a 180 on him and treat him decently, whether it’s because she’s aware of all the shit he’s been through or if she’s doing it as a roundabout way to screw with pheonix’s head or some combination of the two
and at first apollo wonders if the stories were exaggerated, only to see her pull her usual acts with other people, leaving him very confused
Nurse: what is your sexual orientation?
Nurse: *looks at me* ……….uh…………?
Me: Asexual, like I don’t feel sexual attraction
Nurse: ………….towards anyone?
Nurse: *goes back to typing* Well then I guess that answers my next question, any current sexual partners?
Me: *laughs* nope, zero
Nurse: that’s a good form of birth control
