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?
Love isn’t supposed to hurt
At least not hurt like this
Her heart beats a mile a minute
The words are on her tongue but they die on her lips
How can anyone speak such words aloud?
She squeezes her hands into fists
And prays for the courage to do what she must
Memories flash but she closes them…
this is for you
anyy of you out there who suffer at the hands of a loved one
you are better than that
you deserve so much more than what you’re getting
you deserve so much love and i hope you get it someday
i hope i get it someday
remember my ask box is always open
to those who follow me and to those who do not
never fear being judged
i am here for you
