Little ghost, little ghost
one I’m scared of the most
can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I’m the only one that sees you,
and I can’t do much to please you
and it’s not yet time to meet the lord above.
But I’m sure there’s no connection
Can I just say how cool it was that both of these superheroines’ personalities and powers were explored in this episode? And how well it was done?
Starfire was not shamed for being emotional. Her powers come from her emotions.
Raven was not shamed for suppressing her emotions. Her power requires amazing control.
They both. Work. They are both different kinds of strength, and they are both heroic and powerful and good. And they each learned from the other, and helped each other out by seeing from each others’ perspective, and finding the value in their differing approaches! Wow!
Fuck yes, this is how you write super-ladies, okay. There’s more than one way to be a “strong female character.” There’s all different kinds of strength. Why don’t more people GET this?
“No tienes ni puta idea, Ygritte”
Miss Riza, why did you become a soldier? Because there is someone I have to protect.
