My name is Stephanie and I cosplay and go to cons.
If you like fandoms and [intersectional!] feminism, you have come to the right place. I tag everything obsessively. Have a lovely stay at my blog! ^u^

Has it been done yet? Probably has.
I took a couple of hours out of my day to be on a panel for Young Author’s Day, an event put on by the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association. I was invited to join by John Lustig, who I feel very lucky to call my friend and mentor. We answered the usual questions about the writing process and how we broke into comics, but I was even more intrigued by the audience. Notice something about them?
Yeah. GIRLS. Very. Young. Girls.
So I asked THEM some questions. “How many of you read comics?”
All hands went up.
"How many of you want to make comics some day?"
Most of the hands went up.
Here’s where it really got interesting. “How many of you BUY comics?”
Only one hand raised. I asked her where she buys her comics. She said, “At the comic book store.”
"Do you have a comic book store you like going to?" I asked.
She hesitated. “It’s complicated.”
That’s 10 year-old speak for “I have to go there to get comics but the store makes me uncomfortable.” The rest of them read webcomics. None of them had heard of Comixology before, but they knew all about it by the time the panel was over. What comic would they like to see most? Minecraft. Only Steve needs to be a girl.
It was a fascinating experience, especially in the wake of this article detailing why girls in the 1980s (like me and one of the moms nodding eagerly in the audience) stopped buying comics for 20 years.
The future of comics is bright indeed.
This is absolutely wonderful.

#Remember when there was a non-human person who hadnt talked to anyone of her species in decades #And her only companion was the man she loved and who ignored her or bossed her around and was rude to her #And Martha met her and the Doctor and Jack were busy doing ‘important shit’ #But Martha was the one who took the time to chat with her #To learn more about her language and culture #Who befriended her #Encouraged her to open up and joked with her and made her laugh #And then because of that discovered what they needed to know BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE#remember that #Remember that time Martha Jones was better than you #God bless Martha Jones
I love how the tags referred to The Master as “the man she loved and who ignored her or bossed her around and was rude to her” and that’s what The Doctor and his companions have become.
out of everyone, its too bad how much jane’s character arc is so ignored. i think it’s the perfect example of a good villain origin story. i dont think the tiara would have worked if she didn’t have all those bitter and angry facets of her personality.
