DE: Getting through the week

Well, we made it to another Friday. My week, and the end of the week in general, has me thinking:

Sometimes things get overwhelming. Saving the world is as draining and frustrating as it is uplifting and invigorating; sometimes just plain old work gets utterly bogged down; even the nuts and bolts of being a supervillain can be unwieldy. How does your character maintain their drive and energy to achieve their goals?

These two were supposedly based on a real couple, who said they wouldn’t board a life boat as long as there were younger people still aboard the ship. They both went below deck, presumably to their room, and that’s the last time they were seen.

;________________;

Isador & Ida Straus

The couple had been married for 41 years at the time of the disaster. They raised six children together, and were almost inseparable. On the rare occasion that they were apart, they wrote each other every day. They even celebrated their birthdays on the same day, although they were well apart from one another. During the sinking, Titanic’s officers pleaded with the 63 year old Ida to board a lifeboat and escape the disaster, but she repeatedly refused to leave her husband. Instead, she placed her maid in a lifeboat, taking her fur coat off and handing it to the maid while saying, “I won’t need this anymore”. At one point, she was convinced to enter one of the last two lifeboats, but jumped out as her husband walked away to rejoin him.

When last seen by witnesses, they were standing on deck, holding each other in a tight embrace. Their funeral drew some 6,000 mourners at Carnegie Hall.

A monument to them still stands in a Bronx cemetery, it’s inscription reads: “Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it.”

why wasn’t the movie about them

why wasn’t the movie about them

Another few bits of trivia: 

Both were Jewish, and Isidor was one of the co-owners of Macy’s. 

The maid, Ellen Bird, went to their family to return the fur coat, specifically to their eldest daughter, Sara Straus Hess. She was gently refused, with Sara telling Ellen that Ida had given her the coat and she should keep it.

When her husband urged her to get into a boat, Ida told him “We have lived together for many years. Where you go, I go.”Her words were witnessed by those already in Lifeboat No. 8 as well as many others who were on the boat deck at the time. Eyewitnesses described the scene as a “most remarkable exhibition of love and devotion.”

Long story short, there should absolutely be a movie about them. 

When I was a little kid I was SUPER into the Titanic story, and I learned a lot about the people who lived and died. The movie came out when I was in high school, but I never saw it, and a friend asked why and I said, “Because it isn’t about the Strauses.”

I wasn’t necessarily mad it wasn’t about them specifically, but there are DOZENS of stories like the Straus story, all of which are more compelling for being real. They could have told any one of them, or several of them intertwined, and I’m still kinda angry about it.

The third play in the set that my guy William comes from is pretty much James III saying "Everyone in Europe is having a Renaissance and I want one too," and his wife saying "That's lovely dear but we can't afford a Renaissance."

So today's DE is: What would your characters splash out a fortune on, if only they had a fortune to splash around? For the fabulously wealthy characters, what's a big expenditure that they feel genuinely satisfied with?

i like to imagine that clark kent’s search history is mostly normal but then there’s stuff like “improved superman costume concept art” because he wanted ideas

#what would you even do as an artist #if one day superman is just wearing a costume that is clearly your design #like superman was clearly looking at your deviantart #there is a chance that superman saw that art you drew of him kissing batman #why is he wearing the costume you designed #is he trying to send a message #is he saying that he really does smooch batman #did superman see your kryptosona #how much does he know 

someone said they wanted to be able to reblog this with my horrible tags

no but like… do you sue him for using your designs? Do you politely ask him to stop using your designs? Do you ask him for license fees when the Superman merchandise adopts your design as well? 

i am absolutely sure that he would find one with an artist’s comment/description that included “hey superman if you’re reading this feel free to use this anytime ok ;3″ and he would say “oh man that’s so thoughtful, thank you weedhorse69, I think I will” and like how do you explain in court that you, weedhorse69, did not intend for your statement to be any kind of contractual offer because you did not think he would ever find your public internet post with his name all over it

#people are reblogging the version of this without my final addition#offended that i would suggest clark kent wouldn’t credit the artist#missing what i consider to be the obvious facts of the matter#it’s probably a costume designed out of pure thirst too like#weedhorse69 is gonna keep his mouth shut because this way he gets to watch superman#running around town in a costume that really shows off his biceps and abs#he thought it looked summery#the league holds an intervention asking him to please stop wearing it#he does not stop no one can stop him#batman v superman II: clark please put on a real shirt

tumblr is garbage and likes to resize everything and readmores don’t work on mobile anyway so you all will just have to click through if you want to read weedhorse69′s chatlog screenshots

YOU NEED TO CLICK THE LINK AND READ THAT CHATLOG

And yet she still kicks ass afterwards and then gets her eyesight back?

WELL the post kinda seems to imply that she gets her eyesight back, like, right after the fight with Medusa.

HOWEVER.

I’m just innocently reading a Superman comic and I come across this:

YEAH you’re seeing that right, that’s Diana casually guest starring in someone else’s comic as a Batman-saving bullet-deflecting badass, having a conversation with him while doing so, also while absolutely blind.

Fucking badass holy shit.

First, because this is important: she isn’t “blinded by Medousa,” passive voice; she blinds herself during a fight with Medousa, so that a distraction or fuck-up won’t result in Diana being turned to stone mid-battle. Because protecting everyone else from Medousa is far more important to Diana than her own eyesight.

She is blind for a good long while after that, passing up several opportunities to get her sight back, because again there’s always something more important. For example, not long after she blinds herself, she earns a personal request from the gods, and instead of asking for her sight back, she asks that a child that had been turned to stone be restored to its life. (The god in question kind of sighs, because the point of the favor had been to restore Diana’s sight, but even they are resigned to Diana being like this.)

I think these two panels do a nice job showing Diana’s position on being blind:

Diana: I’m coming with you. We’ll start in Boston. Her old stomping grounds.Flash: What? You’re blind.Diana: I’m also very tall. Neither of these facts matter.

(Also, this story-arc is also one of the places where we learn that touching the lasso gives other superheroes the heebie-jeebies: they are not at all comfortable being on such intimate terms with the truth. And yet Diana wears the Lasso of Truth on her hip 24/7.)

In short, Diana of Themyscira is the best. And Greg Rucka’s earlier run (The Hiketeia, plus vol. 2 #195-226, aka Down to Earth, Bitter Rivals, Eyes of the Gorgon, Land of the Dead, Mission’s End), does an excellent job of demonstrating that.
