Double ones! To commemorate this meaningless coincidence, I’m going to be doing a lot of doubles for this Weeklies.
Arrow: The first season was good enough to keep me watching. The second wasn’t but I watched because I was already invested in the characters (and I’ve been waiting for Felicity and Oliver to get together already!). This third season is amazing!!! I love it! I’d never even heard of DC’s Green Arrow before the show came out. I love that they got unknowns for the three main characters (at least, I consider them the main characters), Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), Felicity Smoke (Emily Bett Rickards), and John Diggle (David Ramsey). Thea Queen (Willa Holland) is getting an important storyline this season, too, which is awesome because she’s kick-ass and she has definitely developed into one of my favourites this season. Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) and Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) each have a big part to play, too, but I think their chances to shine were in season two and this season they’re taking a back seat.
The last thing I’ll say before I spoil anything is that I can’t wait for the next episode.
Agent Carter: There’s something about superhero characters who are self-made, much less a self-made woman in the 1940s. Not that a woman can’t be self-made same as a man, it’s just that there are a few more road blocks because of her gender. Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) fought in World War II alongside Captain America (See: Marvel’s Captain America: The First Avenger) and she did great. But the war is over, Steve Rogers is dead, and Peggy isn’t seen as the kick-ass agent she is. She is seen only as a woman. However, being looked over because of her gender becomes an advantage when her old friend Howard Stark needs her to save his butt. She and Howard’s trusted butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) conduct their own investigation right under the noses of the secret agency Peggy works for. Shit goes down, stuff’s blown up, and Peggy proves herself over and over. Peggy Carter is the hero–super powered or not– that no one realized they needed until she showed up.
Wattpad: I’ve had an account for about a year now, but I’ve only really figured it out and started to use it this past week. You can put your stories up and read the stories others have put up.
Pinterest: This is a priceless resource when coming up with characters. I can create boards for settings, character looks, character outfits, and anything else I need.
Midi Skirts: Look like a model, feel like a princess.
Crop Tops: Look like a model, feel like a mermaid.
That’s everything for this week! Have a good weekend!
