Siobhan, Kira, and Sarah 1x07
I want to talk about all the mother daughter relationships on this show and how much of a driving force it is for so many characters and they are all fierce LION WOMEN but they are not defined by their motherhood, and it is SO FREAKING GOOD.
#*weeping* #complex fascinating inspiring women #and complex fascinating inspiring men too #ok… many of them are less than inspiring #felix is an inspiration #but whoa #mrs s #and sarah #and kira #THEY ARE THE BEST FAMILY #THEY ARE TRYING SO HARD #SO HARD #KEEP TRYING BABIES#PLEASE KEEP TRYING
Can’t decide what’s more notable:
1) She said she tried to steal a train when she was 20.
2) She struck a Captain Pose with zero prompting.

Hate to say it, but she’s no Kate Bishop.
Don’t you sass me, child.
I’m a 42 year old mother of 2. Yesterday, I *slept in* until 4:30am, got my babies up and fed, planned an Easter brunch menu, finished a batch of rewrites, worked all day writing more comics than you, managed to sneak in 30 minutes on the treadmill and a quick shower before grabbing my hilarious and brilliant husband, two amazing children and double-batch potluck dish and heading to a seder at the home of two of our best friends, where I *rocked* playing with my daughter and her new bow & arrow out on the porch.
Kate Bishop is great. I love Kate. But she’s a fiction, sweetheart, and she’s no fucking me.
I keep watching amazing pole dancers and thinking “I want to learn that,” and then remembering that I bruise if you look at me funny and can barely develop decent calluses on the soles of my feet if I walk around barefoot all summer. Which, from what I’ve heard, means I’d suck at it a LOT.
Megan Carter schools the judges in Season 7 audition for So You Think You Can Dance. Absolutely gorgeous routine. She’s still discriminated against after choreography (not shown here) and doesn’t go to Vegas (because you can’t GASP have a fat person dancing with skinnies, what if a man needs to lift you or something?), but it was amazing to see her given some kind of recognition.
My favorite lady Rachel Nichols in Continuum. I am loving me some Kiera:)
This show sort of snuck up on me, but I think she might actually be my favorite character on any show currently in production. Rachel is amazing.

They said, ‘Well, that’s foolish. You’ll never work, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not good enough,’ and I said, ‘You’re fired.’ Then my business manager said the same thing and I said, ‘You’re fired.’ I just fired everybody. Then I left my husband. You know, I was like, ‘Out, all of you.’ I couldn’t afford to have those voices near me that said, ‘You can’t do this, you’re not good enough,’ because I have too many voices inside of me that say that.

And I love the fact that she isn’t portrayed as delicate or soft. Indigo is associated with royalty and nobility but also with austere strength. The way she’s posed and interacting with the camera—no demurely averted gaze ala Jackie O. She’s staring at the photographer, staring them down.
Not adversarial, but assertive
