This bugs me. I love all the things the boys love.* Doctor Who. Firefly. Buffy. Star Wars. Star Trek. Marvel. DC. Comics. Gaming. Etc. etc. Yet all the female characters consistently dismiss them. For a show celebrating things nerdy and geeky you'd think they'd occasionally let girls like it too.
*As do all of my friends.
The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment, the Earth is where we make our stand.
Created for reference. I've left out S.H.I.E.L.D. for now.

This book should be compulsory reading for anyone writing fantasy. For good reasons.
Imagination doesn't just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving them or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful.

I was disappointed to read, the other day, that Sally Field didn't like her character in this. I love these films. And yes, she is a supporting character. All films, especially character films like Spidey or Deadpool, require them. But she is an intelligent supporting character, and those are important.
