so i know there are varying interpretations of wonder woman out there, but when writing with me please try to remember these things or at least understand how i portray diana as this is how i will be doing it. so at least, please give this a read !
while dceu based,a lot of my characterisation / diana’s origin story is based on perez’s and rucka’s run of wonder woman.
im also going to include a lot of mythology / mythos elements into my portrayal.
i definitely don’t follow the rebirth comics. because diana having a brother and a son is silly.
diana is 5051 as of the present day.
6′5″ she’s the tallest of the trinity.
always wears her bracers ( when she can ) since they are a symbol of the slavery the amazons fought against.
bisexual. with a slight preference for women.
where’s my post about diana not being a v/irgin. maybe i should just link it here.
made from clay. i’ll expand more in her dossier, but there is none of this demi – god nonsense. diana’s origin story is about women.
works at the louvre and is a well – respected collector and curator. she also restores artifacts. though ultimately keeps to herself.
diana had three girlfriends while on themyscira. and another in the 40′s.
diana helped out during the second world war. but she was more detached this time, and mainly occupied herself with helping people escape germany, and germany occupied france. she was most involved during d – day.
wonder woman becomes a legend because of this. spoken of as if she doesn’t exist, a dream amongst the soldiers. this helped her to stay in the shadows.
she did help out, here and there, afterwards. but she mainly was focused on tracking down artifacts / trying to fit in, and in the end, earning a place at the louvre.
diana isn’t a leader. that was left up to hippolyta and antiope and other amazons. diana has only ever worked as a group where responsibility is shared. sure she can lead and has, but it is not the role she will choose.
in the end, she does want to return to obscurity.
because when she rescues people it shouldn’t be about her. diana even gets angry at reporters who are more interested in who she is and “what kind of make – up do you use” instead of the actual victims.
also um…diana is strong enough to subdue / take on superman, just fyi. there’s no way he beats her. i’m writing a meta about her powers it should be up in a couple of days. i just need to find sources.
i honestly don’t know if im going to include any of the main events of jl in my portrayal. so i would prefer some discussion about ships and events beforehand.
especially in regards to w/onderbat because that was handled poorly. i go of their relationship in the comics anyway.
yes ! diana mourned steve. but not now. she misses him, of course, and still loves him. but that is just because diana remembers all of her partners.
she’ll cook some muffins flavored with pomegranate and remark on how both kasia and leona loved them. just because she remembers them doesn’t mean she hasn’t moved on !
things we know about hunk canonically that aren’t food jokes:
got into the garrison which is the top space program in vld verse for earth and got in as an engineer
is super smart. built the tracker for the blue lion in s1
empathetic. forged thru his own debilitating anxiety about being dragged into a war to help save the balmerans. also suggests he has a strong sense of morality
described as the ‘friendliest and kindest member of the team’ according to his wikia
also the strongest of the team after allura
has learned how to pilot the yellow lion despite not being a pilot or training for it holy shit
headstrong and not scared to stand up for his own opinion. immediately caught onto rolo and nyma being suspicious and spoke up about it despite the rest of the team wanting to be friendly w them. won’t just go w the flow and will call bullshit
the above also implies a v good sense of character and judgement from hunk and that’s he’s v good at reading ppl in general
is the most realistic. points out dangers in certain scenarios and probably has his head on the straightest after shiro
a v quick study and good marksman! his aim w his bayard is probably best after lance’s
probably v well versed in xenobiology bc he can?? make human tasting food?? out of alien food?? magic man
canonically a badass engineer who can figure out advanced alien tech and work w it despite it being lightyears ahead of what earth tech he had access to before
incredibly loyal. wanted to be the leader w yellow as his lion instead of the actual black paladin
does actually have a wicked sense of humor and is quite goofy himself
reads ppl’s diaries, would not want to cross
a good diplomat seeing as he (+lance) were able to make negotiations w alien leaders w/o allura being there in s3
I’m pretty sure Mei’s cinematic short made alot of us bawl our eyes out.
And then there’s this lil detail that I saw that I particularly liked but am not too sure on the accuracy of, and that is tea serving.
In SG, we usually serve either rice wine or tea as a sign of respect to our ancestors during Qing Ming/ Grave sweeping Day to remember our ancestors and loved ones ( by placing three small lil cups of tea/ rice wine at the gravestone). At the same time, tea serving or
is also a tradition that’s practiced during weddings where the newly weds serve tea to their relatives to acknowledge their new in-laws and new “brothers” and “sisters” and to pay respect to their current blood relatives. Now I’m half drunk out of my mind and it’s late at night and @pentacass is half egging me on and I cannot brain properly right now, and inferring off the photo of Mei and her co-workers; they obviously seem like a close knit group of friends to her.
I’m secretly half hoping/ imagining that those cups of tea she’s left for them is cause she’s acknowledged them as her brothers and sisters and served the tea to complete the tradition properly.
Or to put it simply, She considers them as family.
On second thought, now that I’m slightly more sober. Can you imagine the line interactions between Mei and Angela ingame? How Angela asks Mei about how she stays looking so young?
Mercy: Mei, you haven’t aged a day. What’s your secret? Mei: Cryostasis. But I’m not sure if I’d recommend it.
Can you imagine, how Mei must be hurting sooooo much inside, when Angela asks that question? Like she just nyooooms back in her head sifting and recalling memories of when she just came out of the chamber to prep tea and all that shit for her colleagues as if its just another regular day at work? I wonder now, does Angela know what really happened?
I know they originally did want fnv to be playable after you finish taking the dam, but without that hh feels like a really weird dlc to me. Mostly because theres this war on the horizon that the courier has the key to, and suddenly it just like… guess ill take this random job and go to utah. And you cant take companions, so it’s literally just a huge ollie outie, and its funny but also…kinda sad
