Now let’s celebrate the discovery of our shared interest with a doodle of Dave who was trying to be close to Rose by pretending to reached up for a book and Rose who held her snark in appreciation because Dave was doing something really lame just for her.
I’m in a good mood tonight. Cheers.
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?

I’m finishing polishing up an album of music.
It will be called Optical Illusion. It will be released tomorrow/May 19 (because I like Sunday music releases, apparently? Personal Growth came out on a Sunday too.)
I am selling it because I like being able to pay for therapy. Also, to reassure people who for some reason only follow my bandcamp (assuming they exist, which I doubt) that I am still a) alive and b) kicking.
Some of the songs on it you have heard before. Some you haven’t. There is also significant use of staccato cello noises in the place where kick drums would normally go, because apparently that is a thing I do a lot. And more of me going “wait, so why does all my music remind people of video game music?”
Spreading this around to get some attention would be appreciated, thanks.
Also, because you read all the way to the bottom of this post, have some art for the first track, “Early Morning”:
Good music for a good reason.
