Alyssa and Julie were so fucking great and Christen deserved better. Chicago couldn’t score but played a good game and though I love the Thorns, they didn’t deserve to win today… anyway that’s my opinion.
Aphrodite walks down the street, an unassuming young woman. She watches the men who follow women around, clawing at their hair, their clothes. She curses them on a watery tongue. They will drown on their own words tonight.
Athena is at war in the senate seat, the streets, in her own head. She’s a strategist, a wise, nasty woman. She stands for the people who are thrown to the wolves, and gives them a sword so they can be the heroes she knows them to be.
Artemis hunts down the abusers, the takers, the grim reapers. She shoots arrows of truth and revolution into the hearts of survivors. She is always just ahead in the tree line, crying for you to be free.
Hera is the school teacher, the grandmother, a victim who notices your wounds and stays with you. She is a mother, firm grip on your shoulder as you stand up against violence, against anything bad for you. You will win today, you have no other choice. She looks at you and survival is etched in her face.
Hecate is the friend that tells you to leave the asshole, who is a bodyguard, who threatens their tongues with their wrath. She cannot be moved, grounded in the earth.
Hestia is a social worker who takes in runaways. She holds picket signs and feeds those who would not be fed. Who makes homes for the lost, the aged, the sick. She sees their strength and their trial by fire. She rewards them for their triumph up to this point.
Persephone knows how to fight for her love, how to break your mother’s heart for knowing who you are and what you want, realizing that was not what your family wanted. She waves pride flags, she sips wine at gay bars.
i haven’t been able to scroll through tumblr all day and it’s been killing me because clearly the skam fam went above and beyond today. i feel bad for the future fans who dig up some old posts and have to figure out why everyone is sucking a board, who was the storefront in season 3, and why, for a show dedicated to social media and technological storytelling, we were freaking the fuck out over black and white screenshots where you can literally see the pixels.
If you were around last year, you know I celebrate April 22nd RELIGIOUSLY, so there will be an onslaught of 3x20 on my blog today😊. And if you’re new, the gist is that in honour of it being the anniversary of the day *angels singing* Olicity made love for the very first time and I ascended to shipper heaven (I’m writing this from there duh), I dedicate April 22nd to reblogging my favourite gifsets/art/reactions from THE GREATEST WEDNESDAY OF MY LIFE.
[Olicity sex is NSFW (by tragic CW standards😴) so if you want to blacklist: The Sexiversary]
