I want more post-chosen-one stories. Yeah, they survived the big event. They still have all those powers, all those secrets, and some modicum of PTSD and now they have to make some sort of daily life.
Little things still land on their doorstep, minor supernatural issues, interfering with their attempts to go out drinking with friends or get an oil change on time, renew their driver’s license. Skipping out on plans last minute because the nightmares mean they’ve slept 5 hours this week and they need to catch up or they just have a bad feeling about it, and they trust those hunches. Powers fading as they get older. Who do you talk to when no one would believe what you went through as a teenager is even possible?
I love fictional idiots who self destruct/sacrifice for the people they care about and the people they care about who understand both that the best way to stop them is to remove themselves and others from immediate danger but to also not let them go through with the stupid “plan” and scream at their beloved well-meaning idiots.
I’m never going to get used to calling the Pulse bar in the Dragon Con Marriott “Pulse” It’s always and forever The Sailboat to me. My friends dubbed it that years ago because it looks like a giant glowing sailboat sticking out of that sea of people, and none of us knew the name at the time so it was easier to describe the thing. The nickname just stuck.
That is an alcoholic indoor sailboat.
You guys know I love some of the DC characters. DC was my first capes and spandex comics so they’re my babies, but at the same time I’ve all but dropped the entire DC line-up. I’m sticking around for Flash these days… and that’s it. I think the re-invent on the Rogues is interesting. Although with the recent reveal about nu!Bart (which I haven’t read myself because I won’t touch Lobdell’s books no matter who he’s writing — but fuck you Lobdell and DC Editorial) — if this Iris vs. Patty nonsense keeps up or ends with Patty,
nope sorry you can’t start my Flash Family without Iris that’s like Clark without Lois for me, I’m out of there too . It’d be the final straw on my camel. I’m slowly getting into more Marvel books like Captain Marvel and Hawkeye. That said… Marvel isn’t perfect. Far from it. I’ve picked up and dropped several books there now. The ones that keep me balance the grim and the lighter storytelling and keep the crossovers light to none. Books tend to lose me during crossovers. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
So after Dragon Con (it is going to take forever to adjust to not putting in the asterisk) the current cosplay discussion standings and con schedules are as follows…
I love seeing all the Levi short jokes because I am short and #fucking tall people is a legit tag on my blog.
