you are my favourite female character on television

Want to be part of my University project?

I know this is an unusual post for me to make on here but it’s sort of relevant to Star Wars so hear me out before you unfollow haha

I’m putting a fanzine and blog together for a Uni project. It’s all about women in fandom and female representation in movies, TV, games, comics etc.

So here’s where you (fellow fans!) come in…

A large part of the project is about shining the spotlight on our favourite female characters. So I’m asking for people to send in their fanart, meta, cosplay pics…maybe even fanfic? Anything that celebrates their fave, really! 

This is open to all fandoms, not just Star Wars and your work could get printed! (with proper credit, of course)

If you have something or just want to know more, message me on here or email me at:

starwarsvillains@outlook.com

I’d really appreciate it if anyone got in touch. Thanks!

P.S. Sorry for not being very active on here recently, it’s my final year and I’m super busy. I’ll be back to normal again by the summer. Thanks for sticking around xx

Why do you gotta be such a bitch and hate on bughead

Hey anon, 

First, thanks for calling me a bitch! Its my favourite nickname. Especially when its over fiction relationships 

Second, I personally do not like the ship. I will tell you my reasons why though if you’re willing to listen. I really like the characters Jughead and Betty individually and I did enjoy their close platonic friendship.I believe we do not see enough close, strong, platonic friendships between males and females in TV and movies. (The issue of heteronormativity is something I will not even discuss right now though) What I dislike most about this relationship is how forced and awkward it feels. That’s why it makes me cringe. 

1. There hasn’t been a scene in which their romantic affection ever looks or felt natural. It always looked forced. From the first kiss in which after pulling away Betty seemed to have no interest in the romantic encounter and quickly changed the subject, to the kiss in this latest episode which was quick and resulted in her rushing off leaving Jughead confused and let down once again. 

2. There was no lead up to this romance. There was no appropriate switch from platonic to romantic. One second they seemed to have no interest in each other romantically, then the next he was kissing her. In the latest episode Betty claims that he was there for her through a difficult time. Yes he was. But there was no implication that he was there for her for any other reason than that he was the one that was there when she found out the distressing information, and that he was her friend. I’m 99% sure that Veronica would have done the same verbal comforting that he did if it was her with Betty through all this instead of her. 

This relationship ultimately feels forced. I would be okay with it if it wasn’t so awkward. Like I said earlier I really like both of these characters, it’s infuriating to see them fall into a badly written and forced feeling relationship. They both deserve more than that. If I was given any sort of romantic lead up and interesting plot around this romance I would be more than happy with it. You have your ships and I have mine. This could be one of mine if it was written better and more believably. 

Have a wonderful day, 

Love your local bitch <3

I used to think it was because I wanted to do something good you know, make a difference.”

Miss Martian rant

This is Tumblr so I’m just gonna rant right here thank you.

Ok, So I’ve seen a lot of people saying that M’gann is a terrible character and people don’t just dislike they hate her. 

The majority say they don’t like her because she’s so stereotypically “girly”. And well…yeah. M’gann has a “girly” personality.  She’s very lively, up-beat and kind of ditzy.

But why is being “girly” a bad thing. If M’gann was like Artemis (A rough, serious, stone cold character) M’gann would lose her charm of being the cute nieve alien girl. 

Also In season 1 M’gann has only been on Earth for like what? 6 months? She’s still getting used to Earth. Also the only connection she’s had to Earth her whole life is through a 70s TV show, of course she’s going to have rather old-fashioned quirks to her personality.

ALSO can we just go over the fact that she took the form of her favourite character from a TV show THAT’S FUCKING AMAZING if I came to Earth and I was a martian I know for a FACT that I’d take the form of Superman or Wonderwoman because I’m DC trash.

And it’s not like she’s the only energetic, lively character, seriously have you met Robin and Kid flash? 

My main point is because a character is “girly” doesn’t mean they can’t be a badass too. A female character doesn’t have to be a tomboy to beat up villains.

And PLEASE don’t tell me she’s not a badass. M’GANN IS A FUCKING BEAST

She’s one of the most powerful characters on the team, alongside Superboy and Aqualad. 

SPEAKING of Superboy, another thing people criticise her for is her relationship with Superboy (Connor). 

It was apparently forced and a “bad influence on young girls” that’s a quote by the way. 

THIS IS A SUPERHERO SHOW And yes, well developed relationships would be nice but trying to squeeze romance into the side.

So to some extent, yeah their relationship was kinda shoved in our faces…


BUT SO WAS THIS

(Don’t get me wrong though I love this ship)



AND THIS

like seriously they just start making out ??????



AND THIS!!!

like what? when was this a thing? what? the fuck?


People said it annoyed them how she immediately fell for Superbly when she first met him…

WELL OF COURSE SHE DID! HAVE YOU SEEN SUPERBOY???? 

I’m not even attracted to men but DAMN 

Any reasonable person thinks Superboy is extremely hot. Dude my Dad has a crush on Superboy. 

Also, may I remind you? Artemis ALSO had a thing for Superboy and she flirted with him on more than one occasion. so….????????


Superboy was the only guy who didn’t greet M’gann when she was first introduced. Wally (of course) was all over her and Robin and Aqualad had friendly greetings. Connor didn’t give a fuck about the hot alien girl that just walked in.

M’gann and him have a little falling out but then they become friends and then girlfriend and boyfriend.

The greatest thing about their relationship is when M’gann shows her true form

A white martian.

Dude she’s a white martian and other martins are so god damn racist to white martians. She even said growing up on Mars was sad and lonely for her, she fears the same abuse will happen again to her on earth.

Connor… doesn’t give a fuck. He loves M’gann no matter who or what she is.

He loves HER not for her sexy alien body, he loves HER.


“Your strong and I’m stubborn, Together.” - Connor



M’gann is a great character and I’m sad that others fail to see that. Yeah her catch phrase can get annoying but when it’s time to get serious she remains the optimistic yet mature member of the team.


So…yeah. 


I just spent an hour typing up a rant about a fictional alien girl…

I have a sad life. 

University Project: Update (Updated!)

Thanks so much to everyone who has already responded to my post  (I will get back to you all soon!) 

You can still send something in or ask any questions by emailing me at

starwarsvillains@outlook.com

Here’s the run down if you missed the posts from last night:

I’m putting a fanzine and blog together for a Uni project. It’s all about women in fandom and female representation in movies, TV, games, comics etc.

A large part of the project is about shining the spotlight on our favourite female characters. So I’m asking for people to send in their fanart, meta, cosplay pics…maybe even fanfic? Anything that celebrates their fave, really!

This is open to all fandoms, not just Star Wars and your work could get printed! (with proper credit, of course)

Some brief guidelines for sending stuff in:

  • Whatever your submission is, female characters have to be the main focus. They can be from any fandom!
  • If you’re sending in fanart or cosplay pics, please include a few words with it saying why you appreciate this character/these characters so much
  • *New: If you want to send fanfiction, please keep it short. I won’t have enough space for a multi-chapter fic. One-shots/standalones/poems/drabbles are fine! Sorry for not mentioning this earlier.
  •  Let me know how you want to be credited. What name/alias do you want to go by? Do you want a link to your social media next to your work and so on…
  • Finally, please don’t send anything that’s NSFW (because my university teachers have to see this haha)

If you have any more questions just ask. I’ve had some really great stuff sent in so far, I hope I can make a zine that’s worthy of showing it off. Check the University Project Tag for more updates and info!

Lost In Star Wars

Part 1: Lost in Poe Dameron’s room

Summary: Poe Dameron x reader. Lost in Austen au. You love Star Wars. You love everything to do with it. You love all the characters except one. You know which one I mean. One day you hear a noise coming from the bedroom in your flat and you go to investigate.

A/N: Lost in Austen was a 4 part mini series for ITV on British tv. It was crazy and it was pretty much a reader insert. You can find it online. Darcy has a big hat. This will contain several new characters and is set just after TFA. Also i’ll mostly base this off just the movies because I don’t know much about the extended universe or anything else. This will be my first series that’s neato. Female pronouns. You live in England just because I wanted to make one single joke.

It is a truth generally acknowledged that we are all longing to escape. You escape always to your favourite franchise, Star Wars. You’ve watched it so many times now that you dream of it and it’s like you’re actually there. It’s a galaxy you know so intimately, that you can see it and that you can touch it. You can see the Skywalkers, the lightsabers and that time Anakin was shirtless…….Woah there! You thought. Let’s take this down a little. Now where were you?

A Quote or Song Lyric You Love: “He needed to tell her…what? That she was lovely and brave and better than anything he deserved. That he was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn’t pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her. That without meaning to, he’d begun to lean on her, to look for her, to need her near. He needed to thank her for his new hat.”
Favourite Novel: Shit, I read a lot and I have a lot, okay? But I had to choose one, I’d say either the Outsiders or Persuasion by Jane Austen
One Fun Fact About Yourself: I’m boring as hell, but um…I just wrapped up playing Maureen Johnson in a production of Rent!

A GIF That Describes Who You Are:

iprcdigy  asked:

1. Favorite female character? 2. Favorite Male Character? 10. Do you buy the volumes or do you just read them online?

ASK ME NARUTO SHIT  —  ACCEPTING

1. FAVOURITE FEMALE CHARACTER?
probably gunna sound weird, but i really love temari. i always loved seeing her and the sand sibs turn up.

2. FAVOURITE MALE CHARACTER?
KANKURŌ!!  without a doubt he is my favourite !!  i always get this feeling when i see my favourite character of a tv show or movie on screen and i absolutely had it whenever i saw him. (and yamato but i developed a fondness for kankurō well before yamato was introduced. tree man is also my bae.)

10. DO YOU BUY OR READ ONLINE?
unfortunately, as a poor very poorly paid individual who has quite a bit of debt stacking up i can’t afford to buy manga, or even anime for that matter. i read what i can online but a lot of the time i’ll borrow from the library because ‘fan translations’ can be absolutely terrible sometimes.

Carol Peletier

So a while ago I started watching (and became completely obsessed with) The Walking Dead (I actually did a Daryl Dixon painting around that time that can be found on this blog). Pretty much since the very beginning, Carol has been one of my favourite characters, but since watching seasons 3-5 she has been cemented in my mind as one of my favourite characters of all time, and absolutely one of if not my most favourite female character on television at the moment (played by the phenomenal Melissa McBride). I absolutely adore her, so I had to sketch her!

And of course I couldn’t resist adding a few Cherokee Roses :)

Hope you like it!
