Oh look, it’s more Avengers-referencing art. Why is this stuff so fun to do?
Kick-ass Tamora Pierce characters assemble! Plus a bear!
The ladies’ backstories are here (because extended supporting waffle looks rubbish on Tumblr formatting, doesn’t it?)
The superhero-names are not quite up to the standards of silliness of the Terry Pratchett equivalent. I feel particularly mean about calling Kel ‘Lump’ but she did end up wearing the name like a badge of honour, amiright? I’d be glad to hear any suggestions for improvement in the naming department.
maybe they just rub me wrong since they’re always explained by some pouty faced dude, but these posts always seem to roughly translate to,
“Dear girl, I know you must be insecure not because the world has told you a lot of specific instructions about how you have to dress and look a certain way in order to be happy and beautiful and to have people like you that is reflected and reinforced in all the tv and movies we watch, the magazines we buy, the commercials that air-
I know the real reason for your insecurity must be that not enough men have told you today that your face looks good no matter what you put on it. Now you feel better, right?”
Hey asshole in space, has it ever fucking occured to you that girls care and think about more than our appearance and there are numerous reasons that we could be insecure? But of course girls can’t be insecure about other things, all we are is beauty personified right?
Maybe someone wants nice clothes or makeup and it has nothing to do with you! Imagine that! Not everything women do is to please straight cisdudes!
Maybe I don’t actually give a shit how I look! Guess what? Some people aren’t actually beautiful. And that’s fucking fine. You don’t need to be good looking to like yourself, surprisingly enough.
i can’t even
SERIOUSLY I CANNOT FOCUS HERE THIS GUY IS IN SPACE FOR NO REASON HOLY CRAP DOES HE EVEN HAVE AIR OUT THERE?!!! IS THAT WHY HE’S HOLDING UP A SIGN? IS THIS LIKE HIS LAST MESSAGE TO THE WORLD OR SOMETHING BEFORE HE GET SUCKED INTO A BLACK HOLE OR SOMETHING?!!!!
