On a huge Doctor Who kick these days, but hoping to get back to some other topics soon. Some of my Leia Nouveau’s from the last few years.

Friends sometimes ask me why I like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and/or tell me it’s mediocre. And I’ll admit that sometimes the writing isn’t that strong or that sure, there’s some things lacking. I tell them that I like Joss Whedon and I mumble something about it being funny.
But here’s my real reason.
Look at the characters.
All supremely competent and looked up to in their fields. One is renowned for literally being the best at kicking villain ass.
Two in STEM and proud of it.
When was the last time I, as an Asian woman in a STEM field, had the privilege of seeing that sort of presence on-screen? Had these sorts of role models?
It’s not my entire reason. But it is a hella big reason and it is a big deal for me, and damn if I don’t want Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to succeed if for nothing else than to bring a drop of representation to media.
In a period of BadTiems for a galaxy far far away in England, the Danes had taken over under their lead, Grand Moff Tarkin. Things looked really bad, until King Alfred appeared and saved the day by blowing up the death star and a few other things. (Also, he single handedly restored literature and Jedi philosophy to the galaxy of Angleland, but I digress.)
Our band of Anglo Saxons regroups on Hoth, in Wessex, and Edgar the Peaceable rules and they regroup. Suddenly they spot enemy Star Destroyer longboats in the atmosphere. If they run, the Empire will strike and destroy them. So they allow them to land on Hoth.”
Things are kind of meh. Then Luke dies. A bunch of rebels flee back to the base in his ship while someone avenges him. Wedge says H to the no, we’re fighting now and dying before we let the Imps in. He dies. Tycho makes a big speech. Dies. Everybody dies. The end.
Betty’s sort of doing the ‘we can do it’ pose but sobbing into Gladys. Fuck. I’m sobbing with her.
She is Very Protective of Her Ducklings
Please stop what you’re doing and look at this
The amount that I am scared to accept this grad school offer probably indicates that it’s the choice I need to make.
