superman stuff

the first few weeks of the justice league actually being a team are probably a fucking nightmare. superman keeps using midwestern expressions. you’re not going to need paper towels to clean this up, you’re gonna need an irrigation system, he says. nobody is entirely sure what that means. aquaman keeps leaving in the middle of fights to go save lobsters from restaurants, because he can’t just let them get eaten, y'know? wonder woman quickly figures out that there’s maybe three people here with any serious combat experience. the flash is just a police officer, man. that’s all he knows. she’s in despair. speaking of the flash, someone made the mistake of giving him caffienated coffee, and now the power’s out. someone tell green lantern that he can’t wear the same gross jacket to every meeting. shouldn’t his space cop uniform keep him warm. who keeps playing ‘mmm whatcha say’ over the speakers. batman keeps disappearing during after battles, and it turns out he’s at the daycare down the street hanging out with the babies. he got bored

give me lena and kara as the anti clark and lex. let them bond over being adopted, over feeling like an outcast and not having many friends when they were kids. let lena struggle under the dark shadow that her mother and brother have cast, but also have kara to depend on and help her though. let kara embrace lena completely, and trust her with her secret because she knows what an amazing person lena is and how much it would mean for her to entrust her with something like that - a luthor and a super, working together. give me kara defending lena to j’onn, to alex, to james, to clark, because she knows that just because you share a name with someone doesn’t mean you are anything alike. let kara and lena be the ultimate allies, both heroes in their own right. kara as supergirl, and lena for standing up to her family and daring to believe in a better world. let them show clark what could have been, if he and lex had set aside their secrets and lies and embraced each other instead. give me an unbreakable friendship built on mutual trust, love, and support. 


“Dreams save us. Dreams lift us up and transform us. And on my soul, I swear…until my dream of a world where dignity, honor and justice becomes the reality we all share–I’ll never stop fighting. Ever.” - Superman, Action Comics #775

Girl of Steel (A Supergirl AU)

Peggy Carter knows how to blend in. It’s become second nature to hide behind her lead-lined glasses, to control the strength of her grip, to keep her feet planted on solid ground. She never speaks of her childhood before the Martinellis, she rarely dreams of the Phantom Zone, and she never mentions the one blood relative she has left, who flies around in a red cape, saving the world (when he isn’t doggedly pursuing the truth as ace reporter James Barnes). Instead, she works as a personal assistant to Pepper Potts, the queen of media and the most powerful person in National City. She debates the existence of aliens with her friend Sam, has lunch dates with her sister Angie, and only uses her powers to listen for her boss calling her name.

Everything changes the day Angie boards a flight to Geneva. When her sister’s plane is sabotaged, Peggy risks everything to bring the plane to safety, only to discover that Angie is actually an agent for the DEO, an organization that exists to monitor alien activity on Earth. Peggy makes it her mission to aid the DEO, particularly in neutralizing the threat from the convicts previously imprisoned on Fort Rozz, the Kryptonian detention facility that followed her ship out of the Phantom Zone fifteen years before.

With the help of her sister, DEO director Nick Fury, her friend and resident IT expert Sam Wilson, and Steve Rogers (the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best friend of the Man of Steel), Peggy learns to navigate the challenges that come with being a superhero.  

Because the world needs her to fly.
