Anonymous asked: Please don't make Coulson gay because you can. He was created straight and written straight in Battle Scars.

Look, no-one said I was or wasn’t writing Coulson in Secret Avengers as gay. One beautiful thing about fiction is that we fill it with our own meanings. For example: was Coulson really created and written straight, instead of, let’s say, bisexual? How do you even do that unless you explicitly identify him as straight and choose to believe the character is telling the truth? You see my point? In case you don’t: fiction is infinitely malleable. There is no certainty, and there is no certainty in the universe, except perhaps change. 

I sense a certain dose of entitlement in your request — which, by the way, says a lot about you and nothing about the fiction you consume. I don’t react to entitlement well, but I am transforming my initial reaction into something positive here, and perhaps you’ll use that as a guiding light for yourself, too. Perhaps the question you want to ask yourself is, “Why am I so hung up on my perception of a fictional character’s theoretically heterosexual identity, and does me being hung up on it have anything to do with my possible uncertainty regarding my own sexual identity?”

It might. It might not. U-decide.

I just became a fan of Ales Kot. Now to figure out what he writes and buy it.

A short list (aka the ones I’ve been reading/planning to read): Iron Patriot (mini-series no longer running? should be in TPB soon? features Rhodey, his niece, and his dad!); Secret Avengers (led by Maria Hill! with Fury, Coulson, Barton, Romanoff, Drew, and MODOK); Bucky Barnes: Winter Soldier (coming sooooooon!).

Oh man! So I’ve already BOUGHT his stuff… I just haven’t read it yet. *looks at comic book pile* *weeps*

Definitely moving Iron Patriot up the To Read list!

What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.

Just one day I’d like to be able to go to one of the female superhero tags on Tumblr and not get a face full of vag or boob.

I don’t know what I’m going to wear, either. I CANNOT HANDLE THIS. I AM NOT READY.

I’m still thinking Kitty Pryde inspired. I just haven’t decided fully HOW inspired. Not sure if I just want to go with the yellow and black color theme or do some sort of costume top…GAH.
