Black Widow Hunt
It’s me Bucky… It’s James.
Who the hell is Bucky?
I meant no offense.
And you’ve given none.
Steve’s face tho like “where’s your righteousness Natasha” is priceless
From sketch to finish :) Gabe and Robbie Reyes from Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore’s All New Ghost Rider. The final piece was originally posted on my main blog here!
Was anyone else a little bit disappointed that the kick ass Lady Counsel Member turned out to be Natasha? Still love Natasha, but for a few glorious seconds, it was awesome to see an older woman come out of nowhere to kick ass.
Oh hell yes. For one glorious moment this movie was going to be the utter best thing ever made. And then…. well it was still cool but such a disappointment we didn’t get unexpected kick ass over 40 woman.
Did we ever even find out what happened to the counsel member?
Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
today at the bookstore i asked the lady working if she had any lgbtq books that i could check out and her eyes magnified in what i mistook as horror and i thought i had offended her and then she said “i have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement i’ve been waiting for someone to finally ask” and she all but burst down the stairs to get them for me
this was the best filler episode of all time.
the atla fillers were so good half the time i didn’t even realize they were fillers
Really wanted to draw Robbie since I read All-New Ghost Rider so I did this very rough sketch. I’m not sure I’ll finish it, I mostly wanted to draw the idea and try drawing his great face.
If you haven’t read it, you should, it’s full of yeses and amazing art by Tradd Moore
How I Want “Elementary” To Handle Mary Morstan
First of all, marrying off one of your two lead characters is Risky. Especially considering that about 50% of the show consists of these main characters’ interactions in the apartment that they share together. Having one of them get hitched and move out would unavoidably change the dynamic of the series. It is Risky. But I still want them to do it.
In the original books, John Watson is a straight man who marries a woman, Mary Morstan. In Elementary, Joan Watson is an apparently straight woman who has only been seen to date men but who has yet to be introduced to anyone we can recognize as Mary Morstan’s equivalent on the show.
This show has demonstrated a willingness to play around with the genders and relationships of Conan Doyle’s original characters to add a new twist and keep the viewers on their toes. It has taken two iconic Holmesian Male characters and reimagined them as women, and it has even established Ms. Hudson as a transgender woman. Not only does this keep the show engaging and surprising, it has the added benefit of providing better representation to frequently under-recognized or under-respected groups.
Because of this trend on the show, I very much want, and do not think it is unreasonable to expect for Joan Watson to eventually get married to Mary Morstan and for Mary Morstan’s character to remain a woman.
I am not alone in this desire, and I know there are people watching the show hoping for a story arc about Joan being in denial about her sexuality and her coming to the realization that it isn’t a man she wants it’s a woman.There seems to be a great deal of desire for this sort of denial-to-realization character arc. But, personally, that is not the direction I am hoping the show will go in.
What I want is for Joan to just one day meet Mary and start flirting and then dating without Joan ever acknowledging that this is outside of the norm for her.
Naturally, Sherlock would react to this with surprise (as, most likely, would the viewing audience), because it is contrary to what Joan’s past behavior has indicated of her sexuality (i.e. only going out with men). And Joan would calmly explain that she is bisexual; she never mentioned it because it never seemed relevant, and it’s not her fault he assumed she was straight. And then that would be it. No more talk about Joan’s sexuality. End of discussion, moving on. Because Sherlock has demonstrated repeatedly that he is perfectly comfortable with gender and sexuality issues that others can have a hard time accepting, so once he has this new data there’s no reason to harp on about it. It just gets added to the pile of information he knows about Joan, and then he proceeds to react to this relationship in the same way he would to any of her others.
I’d prefer for Joan to be openly bi than have the show drag out the whole denial and realization drama, for a couple of reasons.
(please don’t hate me)the ‘Character Coming To Terms With Their Sexuality’ plotline has been done. It is a Good plotline, and it is Important and Relatable for a lot of people. But sometimes I feel like it’s all we get to see of queer characters on tv. So much of the queer tv narrative is about characters “coming to terms” with their sexuality, and not enough of it is about them just going about their relationships and having regular relationship drama rather than sexual identity crises and coming out issues.
Second, bisexuality does not get enough representation. There are so many issues with bisexuality not being recognized as a real orientation, and the need for apparently straight characters to determine that they’ve been pursuing the wrong gender all along before they can be established in a queer relationship perpetuates that. It would be really nice to see Joan as a bisexual character who is comfortable with her sexuality and whose relationships with both genders are treated with equal respect and legitimacy.
Third, it highlights the problems with making assumptions about other people’s sexuality. So we’ve only ever seen Joan date men. That doesn’t have any bearing on whether or not she is interested in women. We have a tendency to think of sexuality in binary - one or the other - but that’s generally not the way that sexuality really works. And no matter how many people of a single gender you see somebody date, you cannot know for sure what their sexual orientation is unless they explicitly tell you.
ALSO, as an added bonus, establishing Joan as bisexual and having her marry a woman would help to subvert the notion that lesbian and bisexual women are only queer because they haven’t met the right man yet - an extremely damaging notion which Stephen Moffat has been decried for perpetuating with his representation of Irene Adler on ‘Sherlock’. And I think there is a wonderful quality of poetic justice to one Sherlock Holmes adaptation acting to repair the kind of social damage that has been perpetuated by another.
