The Realms of the Gods made me so happy, I missed being in Tortall. Daine and Numair are probably the only Tamora Pierce couple I’ve ever been really invested in. I always liked the Circle of Magic books partially because romance was barely touched on at all, but I actually enjoyed Daine and Numair together.

Yeah, Peggy and Sharon are one of the few female / female legacies in comics. The fact that people want to lower their association to a battle over who deserves Steve Rogers’ dick more is super gross.
I’m here for vocally and politically liberal steve rogers.
And I’m here for someone like Natasha or Pepper or (insert any female character here) telling him about issues that are important to women.
But I am so not here for Tony Stark’s rich, white, incredibly privileged ass trying to teach Steve Rogers how to be a liberal.
No. Fandom, stop that. Did you even watch Cap 2? BECAUSE STEVE DOESN’T NEED THE AVENGERS’ HELP IN BEING A GOOD PERSON (aka a liberal.)
Like Tony Stark would even understand “LGBTQ” stuff, when he is the only Avenger we’ve ever seen make queer stuff a joke on camera with Rhodey.
There are things that Nat can teach. There are things that Rhodey or Sam could, if they choose to. But there is literally nothing about the rights of the oppressed that Tony fucking Stark can teach anyone, let alone the poor boy from the Depression.
Christ on a fucking pogo stick.
I don’t know what asshole invented the idea that teenage girls are the cause for all evil, but I really hope that person never has to raise one. I don’t want him to see her dissolve in his fingers as society tells her to eat less, be thinner, be the damsel in distress, be something for a man to fix, be different but not too different, be special but never ever a special snowflake - I don’t want him to watch as she realizes that no matter what she loves, she’ll be made fun of for it. She can simply like her coffee from Starbucks and suddenly she’s vapid and thinks herself poetic. She’ll want to play video games but be called a fake nerd, particularly if she poses in any remotely flirtatious way because for some reason despite the entire community playing games with poorly dressed women they still hate it when a real girl wears less clothing, she will be seen as trespassing in a specifically male space - but when she falls in love with a female-based television show for children, she’ll watch as men step on themselves to sexualize it. If she wants old-fashion romance she’s seen as being naive but at the same time is told to keep herself ‘pure’ for some dude that might not hurt her. If she admits to being anything, she makes herself a target. She will be told her worth is based on how much a man values her. She might love to cook but she’ll hate being asked to stay in the kitchen, she might love to read but get told she’s too introverted by half the population and ‘not that special’ by the other. If she loves to go out and party, she’s ‘just another college co-ed,’ if she loves to spend her friday nights watching anime, she’s a shut-in. God forbid she be proud of something: the words “I’m different from other girls” are a death sentence because we live in a society that doesn’t want to see women like that, a society that doesn’t like the idea maybe we all are actually different and not carbon copies of each other, maybe we all would like to feel unique and loved and worth knowing - maybe the real problem is that she will be raised to believe being a girl means silicone and photoshop and dying as a way to move forwards a plot - and she doesn’t want to be seen as that. When she says “I’m not like other girls,” she means she’s not like the girls she sees on tv, these invented two-dimensional creatures that say one line and then get chased down by monsters.
She can try all she likes. She’ll be shut down at every single fucking turn. What she doesn’t know is that they’re getting her ready for when she’s grown up because she’ll be so used to being stepped on she’ll just give up. Why respect women when you don’t even respect little girls?
And when she is burning up, when she mentions that her insides are volcanoes and her skin is too thin to contain them: she will be told she is hysterical, that she’s doing it for attention.
I don’t want him to watch as she shuts down, as she learns to live as a paradox, I don’t want him to see her rip herself to shreds in order to be perfect, I don’t want him to realize that there’s no way she’ll get help because she’s only doing what she’s told.

Fic prompt: Seeing Red.
I don’t know. I wasn’t feeling anger, so this came out instead.
And behind a cut for length reasons
LOL, yes. I used to actually ship it, but then the fandom became wretched.
Well, and 616 Tony became beyond all hope.
Yes! I just have had a serious case of writer’s block, and the drabbles I’ve been doing have been the first stories to come out of me finished for a while.
I’m going back to the circus.
