I need a fic where Supergirl and Livewire exchange hate mail regularly…
Kara randomly just receives a postcard from hawaii or new zealand or france saying: Saw you get beat up on the news… your form is off… coming for ya blondie…
Livewire always hangs around long enough to get return mail, usually on the back of a gaudy greeting card that Kara found in some back alley gift shop, filled with a really bad pun and a quip about Supergirl being in top shape…
Then once a year, they meet up… beat the absolute crap out of each other, then part ways…
2 weeks later, Kara receives another postcard from Tahiti… bet you wish you were here instead of in a hospital bed… that was a nasty fall you took… shame you’re bulletproof…
Remember how in DMC Beckett was desperate to lay his hands on the Chest because if the Company controls the Chest, they control the sea? The second and third films make it perfectly clear that claiming authority over the heart of the captain of the Flying Dutchman gives you authority over the sea because the captain of the Flying Dutchmanis the sea – hence the conundrum in AWE. Since all the rules of Jones’s curse apply to Will, there is no reason to assume that this is no longer the case once he’s taken over, and so the logical conclusion is that whoever has Will’s heart also rules the sea. And we all know what happened at the end of AWE.
So yes, what I’m saying is that Elizabeth Turner can stay on land waiting for her husband to come home and still be the most powerful character in the Pirates universe because it just so happens that the love of said husband granted her authority over the sea.
So, re that convo that keeps occurring about whether Queer is a slur and should not be used.
When I came out, everything was Gay and Lesbian.
We all called ourselves Gay and Lesbian because that was what had been yelled at us as youths. The symbol was the pink triangle.
The pink triangle was used by hate groups and oppressors to identify us.
We took it back. We took gay back.
During my time at Macalester college the student group name changed from Gay and Lesbian Alliance to LGBT Union.
We listened, we learned, we included more people more explicitly. The symbols were the pink triangle and the AIDS ribbon.
Two badges of death. And you would take them from our cold, dead, hands, motherfucker. Right?
After I graduated, the rainbow flag became predominant. Made by AIDS activists, by the way. Still coming out of death.
And Queer became the thing. It was more inclusive, and the T was moving from transsexual to transgender, and what about married Bi folks… (I mean, when I came out I knew people who called themselves trannies, because that was still a thing then.)
So, anyway, Queer. Queer was the word, like Gay, that got shouted from passing cars.
But when accused of being a hated, vile, thing, you can take two paths. You can deny being the thing,
and agree with your accuser that being this thing is AWFUL. The WORST. Of course you are not that thing.
You can INCREASE BEING THE MOTHERFUCKING THING.
Am I a dyke? Really? WATCH me cut my hair and buy a leather jacket and wear silk ties, you sonuvabitch.
Call me queer? Really? YOU CAN NOT HANDLE THE QUEER.
Some time after that, other acronyms and terms started being used. QUILTBAG, for instance. Ace/Aro, these are now in use. Lots of terms.
But nearly all the things we call ourselves have been used as weapons against us.
Nearly all the symbols we use for our resistance have origins in our deaths.
Not just oppression.
So when you say you want the term dyke, I will try to remember that. If you call yourself a flaming faggot, I will nod and move on.
If I call myself queer and you flinch, I will try to respect that, but you don’t get to tell me to stop. Everybody who came out before you has taken the rocks and bottles and made them into shields and wind chimes.
If I am unashamed of being queer, you do not get to give that word BACK to the fuckwits who made it a slur.
Resistance, jubilation, and freedom go one way. We grow more expansive, more inclusive, louder, larger, brighter.
We don’t have to all like each individual sequin, strobe light, or pixy stick at this party. But you sure as shit don’t lock ANYBODY out.
I’m still not over the fact that at the end of episode 5, when Genos tells Saitama he’ll be back later and runs off, sad guitar music starts playing and Saitama looks all unhappy and lonely, it’s like he thought Genos wouldn’t ever show up again, and honestly this entire episode is proof that Saitama enjoys Genos’ company alright, he was obviously having fun spending time with him and when it was time to say goodbye, you could see all of his energy and liveliness leaving him, and he caved so easily when Genos asked to moved in and hasn’t used any of Genos’ money, and long story short, Saitama actually really likes Genos okay, likes having him in his space, likes spending time with him and cares about him
The Lost Special: The One Way to Tie Up Every Loose Thread
In the last month this corner of the Sherlock fandom has thrown out a multitude of ideas for a narrative that could potentially resolve every last inconsistency in Sherlock series 4. Not knowing it, this community has debated different readings – all perfectly valid with only minor holes in logic – but have missed how they might all fit together into an intricate puzzle, each reading validating the other.
I have found one way to connect every loose thread.
Topics resolved include:
– EMP Theory vs “TFP as John’s TAB”: why both readings are meant to be exposed to the viewer (but we just found them too early) – Benedict’s insanely long monologue they mentioned him having in Series 4. – How another episode would only be comprised of a few new scenes – Mary’s character development drifting far from her original plotline – Moffat’s Doctor Who narrative that includes Toby Jones as a Dream Lord and what that means for Amy in “Amy’s Choice” and Sherlock in The Lost Special. – How POVs intertwine in TFP, and how TPLOSH inspired the way The Lost Special would end. – The entire bizarre nature of Series 4 – Breaking the 4th Wall – The focus in The Six Thatchers on “The Duplicate Man”, “Twins”, “Two places at once”, and “Dead AND alive”. – Three Garridebs – Benedict claiming “Love conquers all” while Steven Moffat facepalms.
So if you want to know the one way this could all work, check out the rest of this post. But hear me out until the end, suspend your disbelief until you’ve finished, because regardless of whether or not you believe we’re getting The Lost Special, this reading which combines everything we’ve talked about for the last year is definitely arguable and until something else gets proposed, it is the one I’m sticking with til the bitter end.
Also, you know what bothers me the most about that whole conversation? Is how it’s basically a twisted version of Fitzsimmons is.
Trying to protect each other, their future, and what they’ve built. It makes my skin crawl to hear them repeating those words in that context.
AIDA is trying to keep Fitz with her by using what she’s witnessed with Fitz and Jemma in real life. She’s keeping him close and keeping him working for her by trying to forge the same bond that she’s seen over and over again. It’s so manipulative and it hurts
Especially the “I’d cross the universe” for you in that promo. It makes me want to throw up. She’s twisting his memories and his natural instinct to be loyal and loving, and using them to make sure he doesn’t stray. You saw what happened when Fitz tried to push her, she shut him up by kissing him. This isn’t love we’re seeing, it’s her keeping him exactly where she wants him.
There is nothing there but a lust for his mind and the things he can make. He helped make her so, what else can he do?
Also I think she understands that her attachment to him isn’t as strong as she’d like him to be. Why else would she hide Jemma’s picture from him? She’s scared that, if he even so much as sees her, he’ll remember. No wonder she’s trying to transfer that bond to her.
