Reputation for the best Avengers fanart ever! (Though with all the Clint/Natasha from the movie you need more Black Winter/Winter Soldier. I'll hop on that hetero-OTP train, no one can hate it if YOU draw it)
HAHA aww! I’m glad you like my glorified bobble-heads. :)
Aahh Clint/Natasha. How I dislike it. Well, I have mixed feelings about it, but Bucky/Nat is where it’s at. BEST CANON COUPLE (aside from maybe Luke/Jess. And Luke/Jess/Danny…)
Aaaah I never reblog these things. I find them uncomfortably self-indulgent. But I kind of always wonder about this one, so if if you DO think anything when you see one of my posts being passed around, please let me know.
And I dare any anon to come at me. Because, try as they might to be hatin’, I will be so exited that I am popular enough to get anon hate that I will invite them in for tea and cookies and ask them how their day went and ask if it’s okay if I change before they start tearing into me. XD
COME AT ME BRO.
I ALWAYS WONDER WHY I DON’T GET HATE. I wanna be hated on! Hate hate hate hate hate!
1) I’m fucking screaming. My dog legitimately looks like Dr. Strange and I’ve NEVER noticed it before. Most people think he’s named after Dirk Anger from Nextwave. (He’s not, but the personality fits.)
2) THIS NEEDS TO BE A THING. IT NEEDS TO BE SUCH A THING. I fucking insist on personally taking you to the Norway Pavilion and making you ride what I call “Thorway” and scream “FOR ASGAAAAARD.”
I just re-read Nextwave for like, the third time. Tiny puppy wouldn’t fit in giant gun chair. I LIVE FOR THAT COMIC. LIVE FOR IT.
I WANT THAT. I WANT A DISNEY VAYCAY WITH MY FANDOM FRIENDS.
An interview with famed author Greg Rucka. Greg Rucka has rocked the worlds of comics and novels for years, including memorable Batman writing, plus the Queen and Country series and the Atticus Kodiak books. But he might be best known for being a man who writes a lot of “strong female characters.”
People always ask Rucka why he chooses to write so many hard-hitting women. And now, to celebrate the release of his new novel Alpha, he’s explaining why.
So, to the question.
I have two answers I tend to give, the Quick Answer and the Long Answer. Both are entirely true, for the record.
The Quick Answer goes like this:
Q: How do you write such strong/well-realized/positively portrayed women?
A: I don’t. I write characters. Some of those characters are women.
The female experience is different from that of the male, and if, as a male writer, you cannot accept that basic premise, then you will never, ever, be able to write women well.
They even have a convenient form letter set up for members and other interested parties to contact Marvel and DC to express their horror. The pre-printed text includes phrases like (trigger warnings for homophobia):
“I am extremely disappointed that you would use a children’s superhero character to help endorse same-sex marriage and glorify the homosexual lifestyle.”
“It is disgusting that your company would participate in introducing sexual orientation to children…”
“Your company is damaging impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light.”
According to One Million Moms, “Your email letter will be sent to key executives at DC Comics (Warner Bros. Entertainment Company) and Marvel (Disney).”
The wonderful thing about this form letter is that the entire text is editable and deletable. I just used it to send a letter of high praise to both companies for their representations of gender and sexual minorities (along with apologies for the campaign that provided me with a quick and convenient way to contact them in the first place).
Why not join me in using One Million Moms’ awful form letter for good? Send a letter thanking Marvel and DC for their recent actions! Send a letter requesting more of them! Do as you like, but hey, let’s corrupt the original purpose of that letter beyond recognition. Let’s show Marvel, DC and anyone else out there just how much of a minority bigots like One Million Moms are.
