Q:I'm working on a script for a comic I'm creating. My cast is primarily female and I'm worried I have too many women. When you're writing CM (since your cast is largely female) do you ever think, "there should be a guy in here somewhere?" And if so, what do you do? I'm really comfortable writing women, and I love my characters... I see no need for anymore men in the story at this time, but I'm afraid it won't appeal to a large enough audience. 3 prominent women to 1 supporting male? Too much?
>too many women
I’m sorry, I don’t know what those words mean in that order.
>do you ever think, “there should be a guy in here somewhere?”

You’re trying to sell a thing you haven’t even written yet. Write the story you would write if you were just going to put it in a drawer.
Write the story you want to read.
nothing makes a gamer more nervous than when the game autosaves in a seemingly harmless location
"this is an awfully convenient collection of healing items"
"why is all this ammo here"
"where did all the enemies go"
"This room has rather a lot of wide, open space in it."
"The music stopped suddenly."
"No, there it is."
"….That’s an awful lot of bass."
Thanks to that reblog about Arnim Zola’s storage space issues, kviri suggested that Arnim Zola sounds a lot like someone else we know and love. Think about it:
- He’s a brilliant mad scientist
- He died about 30 years ago, but was digitized and can still communicate via voice recording
- He has an underground lab
- He does horrible experiments on humans he picked up off the street
"Arnim Zola. We’re done here."
..and of course this would mean Bucky is Chell.
au where bucky/the winter soldier is stitch and steve is lilo
I can’t decide which resulting mental image amuses me more: Bucky talking about “ohana” and his broken family at the end of the film, or Steve showing up late to the Lemuria Star because he had to feed Pudge the fish.
(Also, in this AU, Natasha is clearly Nani.)
Yes! Leave your sandwich behind!
Also Paxton is TOTALLY the Hydra agent.
Wooo! Been calling that he was evil since he showed up. God I love being right.
Sounds like Agent Blake may have been evil…or manipulated by Garrett. Who the fuck knows anymore.
Holy shit, he just became interesting.
You know, I thought that too, but I’m still afraid they’re gonna pull him back to the side of boring for the sake of hooking him up with Skye or some bullshit.
I actually threw a thing at the TV at that kiss. Seriously, WTF. No one wants that.
Upon reading this, I was about to turn to frozencapybara and deadpan, “what, you don’t ship Ward/Skye?” just to see the icy glare I’d get. Then I decided, no, I should invent a ship name first. Then it hit me.
Ward/Skye. Wye. Pronounced “WHY?!”
Caps and punctuation mandatory.
Steve Rogers doesn’t know about Luke’s dad.
…What did that Avengers Tower movie night look like?
"Okay, I’ve got historical events and music so far. What movies do I need to see?" Steve asks, breaking out his notebook.
“Some Like It Hot,” Bruce says immediately.
“Robin Hood,” Clint puts in, to no one’s surprise.
Steve smiles. “Errol Flynn?”
“Men in Tights.”
Natasha looks up from where she’s curled in an armchair. “The Sound of Music?”
Clint snorts. “I think he might object to the singing Nazis, Nat.”
Steve just raises an eyebrow. “Singing Nazis?” That one goes on the list.
"Ooh, in that case, Pearl Harbor,” Tony says.
A chorus of groans and protests meet his statement.
"What? I kind of want to see his head explode."
Steve does not put that one on the list. “Anything else?”
“Star Wars,” Darcy says, without looking up from her phone.
The room goes silent. Everyone stops and stares at her like they’ve forgotten she stuck around after Jane went back to New Mexico. Which they probably have.
"Darce, you’re a genius,” Clint breathes.
Bruce actually smiles. “We are in the presence of the last unspoiled adult in the entire country.”
Tony’s eyes light up. “Oh my god, he doesn’t know that Vader is—”
Natasha has him in a choke-hold before anyone realizes she’s moving. “Not another syllable.”
Tony raises his hands in surrender, and Natasha loosens her hold. “What the hell was that about?” he wheezes.
She nods towards Bruce, who is looking somewhat green around the gills.
"Spoilers make him angry."
Imagine stabbing someone with this knife.
It would instantly cauterize the would, so the person wouldn’t bleed, so it’s not very useful.
if you want information it is
and above, in order, we see a gryffindor, a ravenclaw, and a slytherin
why would you stab a PERSON when you can have TOAST?
There’s the hufflepuff
