So if Wonder Woman is from an all-women island, how do they continue to exist? I mean, how do they reproduce?
Oh, I could geek out extensively about all possible theories, but I don't really like any of them. I have a single theory for all women-only islands in all works of fiction ever: trans women.
Like, the texts just say they're all women. No where in canon does it ever say that they have to be all cisgender. The most logical explanation would be a species close to humans as physically diverse as ours, where the male gender identity simply didn't exist.
So Paradise Island is like 50% cisgender women and 50% transgender women.
And intersex women of course. But without any men around to invent sexism, and with cissexism and transphobia being products of sexism, I don't think the women on paradise island see any of these things as seperate categories. They're all just women with different bodies.
Headcanon fucking accepted forever and I don't even give a shit about comics or super heroes. Anyone not using this explanation for all-woman islands is a fucking coward.
omg i love eldritch skywalkers please share more of your ideas? like on leia and ben/kylo? or how leia and luke find comfort in each other because of their shared monstrous heritage?
Her son is born shining. Many mothers have said similar things; but Leia means this quite literally, for she bears what on first glimpse seems to be some kind of opalescent octopus. It shifts and judders into shapes that human eyes cannot comprehend, and Han ducks his head, swearing through his teeth. “Don’t look,” she says, soft and infinitely sad. Her son is like her: this should be a wondrous thing. And yet it isn’t. She takes the bundle of light and shifting colours – at least half a dozen colours that have not been seen in this universe – and at once it solidifies into a little baby. “Look,” says Leia. “Look how much he looks like you.”
He does. When he is human at least: the same knowing smirk, a smuggler’s grin. And at other times he looks like her, just like her, only at those times Han can’t look at him for longer than five seconds without cringing in pain. Hey princess, he said, when she brings it up, says how it bothers her, sometimes I can’t bear to look at you for longer than five seconds, you drive me kriffing mad, but I love you still – and she had slapped him, kissed him, and they’d laughed into each other’s mouths.
Kylo Ren is roiling rank blackness. He is void. He is starless night. He is, he is, he is: this is what Leia and Han tell themselves. Their shining boy, their Ben, is locked away somewhere in there. But that isn’t right. And when Han faces Kylo Ren he doesn’t see darkness but white light, endless and shining and beautiful, and that’s when he realises how badly he has misjudged this. Because Ben didn’t die; Kylo Ren grew out of him, and they are one and the same, and it isn’t as easy as plucking Ben free from the mess that is Kylo Ren, for Ben made his choices again and again, and made himself into the monster that burned the temple. How could I have been anything else. I am a monster, you could not bear to look at me, says Kylo Ren, says Ben, and Han –
Han never gets a chance to answer. I love you. You’re a wonder. You’re –
Kylo Ren wants to eat Han’s heart (Snoke’s suggestion: something final, derisive, the act of one who will never fall to the Light), but he doesn’t get a chance, because Rey – human and whole and beautiful – is intent on ripping his own out.

Oh my god, oh my god! I just thought of this like a minute ago! Okay so whenever they're seperated, they can't stop thinking about each other. Billy keeps singing love songs, and Harold can't stop doodling Billy on his notebooks and schoolwork.
Star-crossed lovers. Yes please.
Mr. Krupp sees Harold’s drawings and is like, “I can’t even punish him for this. I doodled Edith in my planner just yesterday.”
Meanwhile Billy’s a cappella group is like, “Billy, we get it that you miss your boyfriend, but we’re supposed to be rehearsing ‘Footloose’ right now, not ‘It Must Have Been Love.’”
matt : "the lovebirds are fine" lovebirds. love. alec and magnus have argued. next episode they're seperated and then reunited. hug and kiss next episode. matt doesn't seem the type to say "love birds". matthew 'I'm so funny at teasing" daddario. lovebirds = love. malec will admit their love publicly and hug and kiss next episode.
