Okay, so I just binge read all thirteen chapters of
Adventures of Supergirl, a comic series based on the CBS (now CW) show. And now
I’m going to list little facts (semi-canon facts) for all you fan authors and artists for your
shit. So here you go:
Kara lives in Hammersmith Tower, apartment 4-A.
Kara had a bully on earth during high school called
Belinda-the-bully, who seemed to always beat Kara at Street Combat Six using a
surprise uppercut TKO.
Also there were no video games on Krypton.
Kara has one hell of an uppercut thanks to
Kara has to calculate everything during a rescue. Air
resistance, negative acceleration, matching the object’s speed. Like
everything. Or else whiplash could kill victims or she’ll make a cater after every
landing or things would crash against her as she catches them. Our girl knows
how to multitask like a boss.
Kara does her calculations in Sulls, a weight measurement on
Krypton. She problems converting these to pounds.
Alex is approximately 31 Sulls.
Kara isn’t that great with Earth’s physics. The Rokyn
Society’s Gravitistics doesn’t line up with Newton’s laws all too well. She
apparently tried to tell that to her ninth grade teacher while English wasn’t
her first language.
Krypton didn’t believe in resolving conflict by physical
violence. They first exhausted communication, every diplomatic option before
disagreements got out of hand. So, that explains a lot about Kara’s temperament
and hesitance to start a fight.
Kara talks to Clark a lot about people finding out about her
identity and how it would affect the people she cares for.
Winn has a badass hajib-and-leather-jacket-wearing hacker
friend named Rabiah Zinoman, who can go up against an alien who is practically
a computer himself.
Did I mention her screen name is RazzleDazzle130?
Also she doesn’t date, so possibly on the asexual/aromantic
Speaking of screen names, Winn has several:
Supergirl_In_Action252, Mufungo, and Dollm8ker (the latter being a throwback to
his comic book roots).
… James apparently got turned into a turtle once? (I need a fic now!)
Kara had a college roommate named Donna, who was in love
with Silence of the Lambs and would watch it every few weeks. After capturing
and interrogating Fort Rozz criminals, Kara doesn’t like it that much anymore.
Kara’s father used to say, “Not my cup of Thoni tea.”
Kara learned how to control her dreams from the decades in
the phantom zone. She dreamt of Kypton mostly. She used a Kryptonian dreaming
technique called Tarukor for the control. She’s also so proficient in it that
she went toe-to-toe with an alien known for manipulating/creating dreams.
Alex promptly calls Kara a dream warrior.
Kara, after dreaming/sleeping for decades, didn’t sleep much on earth
the years following her landing. Now she mostly does it out of habit and
Alex and Kara saw My Chemical Romance in concert. Seriously
just imagine scene teens Kara and Alex though.
Kara had a weird dream about Oscar Isaac once.
Cat milks stuff for days after a Supergirl fight.
Kryptonians used sunstones as pictures. Like multi-faceted
rocks with pictures on them.
Kara is very proficient in hand-to-hand combat (since she
learned of the DEO), despite not learning it on Krypton. Without her powers,
Kara can still kick your ass if she wanted to. She also really likes uppercuts.
Clark loves mysteries, grew up reading them and they are
half the reason he became a reporter, wanting to uncover the secrets in people. They
infuriate Kara, though, she just wants the world to be straightforward.
Alex doesn’t know Kryptonese.
Alex had a med school boyfriend that used to write poems
about them together like “And so we fight, tooth and claw, with our backs to
the wall.” That may have been the reason they broke up.
Cat apparently partied with cast of Hamilton.
Cat had lunch with Gwendoline Christie.
Hand of Krypton was its justice system’s greatest honor and
heaviest responsibility. They were in service to Krypton’s future.
Kara went to Stanhope College.
College actually challenged Kara in academics her first year.
Yes, Supergirl was brought low by Professor Haley’s Oceanography pop quizzes.
Kara did a huge research paper on doxing in college.
By her own admission,
Kara graduated ‘top-ish’ of her class (knowing her though I headcanon that she was
at least top ten).
Kara curses a lot more in Kryptonese than in English. Like a lot.
Kara learned (passable) English in a day. Our girl is a fast
learner (do as you please with that information).
Midvale is in California, on the beach.
Kara can fly to about 40,000 feet before she’ll
be at risk of being in space.
The DEO has at least one agent that wears a hajib.
Clark says, “Truth, justice, and the American way,” Kara on
the other hand would say, “Hope, help and compassion for all.”
But seriously guys, go read them. The art, dialogue, and narration is colorful and amazing.They’re really fun and
since we’re in hiatus they’re good fillers before Season Two starts. They’re
about 99 cents apiece and there’s only thirteen chapters.
I was listening to Two Souls Toward The Truth and well- I just wanted to understand the lyrics and-
THE TRANSLATION ???
AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICED IT ?????
“THIS BODY THAT WAS WOUNDED AS I GATHERED UP THE FRAGMENTS OF LIGHT
I’LL OFFER IT TO YOU ALONE”
“I ABSOLUTELY WANT TO CONVEY MY FEELINGS FOR YOU
I BELIEVE THAT SOME DAY THAT TIME WILL COME”
CAN YOU SAY
THAT THE FACT THAT MIKA IS IN LOVE WITH YUU IS NOT CANON ?
y’all i physically cannot deal with the fact that jesse was actually meant to be 17 on joining blackwatch; that means he was an infamous gang member from perhaps the age of 14 or 15 years old? that means he did shit bad enough to warrant maximum security prison before he was even out the minors (ie MURDER and whatever else)? that means blackwatch recruited and pressed an actual baby into black ops service
& then there’s the doogie howser nonsense with mercy; wasn’t she head of surgery at a hospital prior to recruitment? how long did this child spend in med school? ten minutes? five? i can’t handle this; i have never wanted to reject ostensibly canon facts more than i do right now god damn it blizzard
The fact that Sulu is now canonically gay is just making me giddy with satisfaction
because tbh in your face to all those people who shrieked “STAR TREK DOESN’T HAVE A GAY CHARACTER SO YOU’RE HOMOPHOBIC IF YOU DON’T BREAK UP A GROUNDBREAKING INTERRACIAL M/F COUPLE AND MAKE THE MAN GAY THAT IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN HAVE GAY REPRESENTATION”
we’ve been saying Trek can have other queer characters for ages
and now we have one. who is a nonwhite guy. and tbh I can only imagine that the racists who have been screaming the homophobia line are tearing their hair out in frustration.
simon pegg and justin lin have confirmed that sulu is indeed gay. there’s a scene written in showing him raising a child with his partner, to the chagrin of takei, unfortunately, who felt like they should have written an entirely new gay character as opposed to making sulu gay, as he didn’t want it to reflect his life in the closet.
the issue between takei and pegg and lin are a bit muddled and confusing, but at the crux of it, sulu was made gay in honour of him
