It was my friend’s mom’s birthday yesterday. Both our moms are single parents and I started thinking about how strong they had to be for us. Then I started thinking about women of color in general. Being a PoC ain’t a walk in the park by itself, but add being a woman in a patriarchal society? Nahhh. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for women of color. AND THEN people have the nerve to call em out on being hard and growing a thick skin, telling them to smile and be happy n’ shit. Fuck outta here. Women that face all that bull and STILL manage to come out on top amaze me.
These thoughts inspired this piece. A black Wonder Woman.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE SHOULD YOU APPROACH.
They may resemble respectable ladies, but they are a genus of carnivorous plants who’s bonnet-like pitchers emit pheromones designed to attract land-rich country gentlemen and entrap them in a treacle-like digestive fluid from which there is no escape.
"Our friend Miche Braden returned to help us show what Guns N’ Roses "Sweet Child O’ Mine" would have sounded like if New Orleans blues legend Bessie Smith had recorded it back in the ’20s. That note at 3:58 was so powerful that the room literally shook…”

And then they'd get designations and be "[First Name] Nevada-Plains Rider-The Tracker the [Designation]" and Croach would never let Sparks forget it ever. EVER.
Bonus he thinks the way to fix it is to just change them all to just “Nevada” but Red has to break it to him, again, that he’s hurting Croach’s feelings, and also, the kids love being N-PR-TTs for some ungodly reason so they’re stuck with it.
Sparks trying to be THE MOST FAIR ABOUT IT and accidentally giving his kids THE LONGEST NAMES EVER ohmygosh.
like Sparks being like “no, you two rest up, I mean who has more paperwork experience than me? It’s fine” and then staring at the paperwork like I don’t know what to put for last name and there is no way to ask them about this now and just guessing.
tinycatfeet said: what would their kids' last names be. what if it was hyphenated. nevada-plains-tracker? this is an important question
A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION
I mean, maybe they would have Nevada-Plains (or Nevada-Rider? I guess it depends on what Red would consider her last name to be) and then maybe the kids would have their own designations so like [child’s name] Nevada-Plains the [designation].
WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?
I definitely think they would hyphenate (and that isn’t just because I’m emotional about hyphenated names because I have one)
but like I can just imagine Red a) not wanting to take anybody else’s name, period, and b) refusing to let her child not share her name.
Plus I see Sparks, the great Admirer of Women as Maddie described him, being all like “OBVIOUSLY she would have your name, Red, she is YOUR CHILD who you CARRIED for nine months, it just makes sense”
#personally I think Plains-Nevada sounds nice #she has either a martian first name and an English middle name or the other way around #she answers to either one of course #but it’s nice to have the options
I feel like they would either go with Plains-Nevada or Nevada-Rider (using human alphabetical order for Fairness Reasons, probably a suggestion by a very frustrated Croach).
