If your ending isn't happy, then it isn't the end
This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.
Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.
Can you imagine Harry trying to parent his children and tell them they need to settle down but then James Sirius just pulls out his edition of Harry James Potter: A History and goes, “When you were my age you followed an alleged mass murderer into a tunnel, faced a werewolf and nearly got killed by dementors. I think I can go to The Bent-Winged Snitches concert.”
So for a little backstory. I live in Hawaii and I am twenty years old. I have 7 other siblings but the only one would is out of state. I work at least 50 hours a week and I pay for everything. School, food, rent. You name it I pay for it. I have finally decided to set my pride aside to apply for food stamps to help myself out and I am going tomorrow to meet with someone about it.
The important thing here is…
What do I wear? I don’t want to look disrespectful and trashy but I don’t want to look too nice and look like I actually have money (which I don’t) What should I wear?
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?
