Animated characters I unapologetically want to go out on dates with

Like you’ve never had a crush on a cartoon.

Korra-looking

1. Korra, Legend of Korra

I’m not saying I want to break up Korra and Asami, but I feel in my heart that I also deserve adventures in the Spirit World.

Perks: I would never be mugged (have you seen those guns). I’d get to explore the Spirit World with someone who’s fun, and super enthusiastic. I’d adopt a polar bear dog. I’d get to be friends with Bolin. I bet you anything Bolin gives the best hugs.

Potential obstacles: Dating the avatar is maybe not the most restful thing. Also see above re: Asami.

2. Robin Hood, Robin Hood

I am not the only person who thinks this.

Perks: At the forefront of the class revolution. Enjoys camping. Make your own foxy pun, I’m not going to do everything for you.

Potential obstacles: Seems pretty into hanging with Maid Marian and/or Little John. Being wanted by the law would make going out to dinner a little difficult.

3. San, Princess Mononoke

Ashataki’s great and all, don’t get me wrong, but he’s far too attached to the human world for San. I, on the other hand, am more than willing to abandon humanity for the adoptive child of wolf spirits.

Perks: Would never be clingy. Hangs out with giant, rideable wolves. Environmentalist.

Potential obstacles: Pretty grumpy. Probably wouldn’t jibe with my vegetarian diet.

Nightcrawler_XME

4. Kurt Wagner/Nightcrawler, X-Men Evolution

Most of the teenaged X-Men were pretty crush-worthy, but Kurt is a teleporting cutie pie and I’m putting him on the list. Try to stop me.

Perks: He’s basically the class clown you crushed on in high school, but also a superhero. And he can poof you anywhere.

Potential obstacles: Quite a lot of angst stemming from his appearance and mysterious heritage. Understandable, but might make a relationship difficult.

5. Ms. Frizzle, The Magic School Bus

Everyone’s favourite teacher would probably be just as exciting and inspiring outside the classroom, and I’m totally commandeering the school bus for dates.

Perks: Takes chances, makes mistakes, gets messy.

Potential obstacles: Probably a bit of a workaholic. Doesn’t acknowledge the danger she exposes herself and the children in her care to.

6. Cyborg, Teen Titans

Half man, half machine, all cuddles.

Perks: Would upgrade everything in my home. Would only beat me at video games 80% of the time. Super strong shoulders perfect for sitting on at a concert.

Potential obstacles: He’s got a lot of roommates. A little high strung.

Garnet_title

7. Garnet, Steven Universe

Guys. Guys. It’s Garnet. She’s perfect.

Perks: Cool, calm, collected. Confident but kind. Forward-looking but caring. Badass gauntlets.

Potential obstacles: As the physical embodiment of perfect love, she probably doesn’t need me.

8. Jessica Rabbit, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Because damn.

Perks: Damn.

Potential obstacles: Pretty devoted to her husband, tbh. Not bad, but drawn that way.

9. The Baron, The Cat Returns

JUST IGNORE THAT THIS IS THE SECOND ANIMAL ON THIS LIST.

Perks: Dapper as shit. Mannered, refined, will help you escape the Cat Kingdom.

Potential obstacles: Is a tiny enchanted ceramic cat.

10. Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Moon

Tall Amazon of your dreams who’s endlessly loyal and cooks like a dream? Sign me up.

Perks: All of the above. Values her friendships. Harnesses the powers of lightning.

Potential obstacles: Scarred from past relationships, duty bound to protect the moon princess instead of going skating with you.

Weekend Reading List: Subverted damsels and DC stupidity

it implies an actual marriage

  • Legend of Korra season two premieres today! At 7pm! Here is a trailer to get you properly excited.
  • Please for the love of god read Princess Princess, a 44-page webcomic about, well, a princess saving another princess.
  • The Mary Sue has a great review of The Gamers: Hands of Fate, a movie about a collectible card game tournament that is delightful. It’s the third instalment of what is now a trilogy, though the other two films (Dorkness Rising and JourneyQuest) focus on RPGs. I loved it a lot for its geekiness (I may or may not have watched all three in one day) but also because Hands of Fate deals with geek misogyny in a really refreshing way. Watch it here!
  • Assassin’s Creed: Liberation is being revamped for Xbox, Playstation and PC, and will be available next year. Main character Aveline de Grandpré (holy intersections Batman! A woman of colour!) was originally the star of some downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, before becoming the protagonist of Liberation. The problem was that Liberation was only available on the PS Vita, and was barely marketed. So it’s amazing that fans managed to show enough support to compel Ubisoft to rerelease the game on more popular platforms, and with additional content. And here’s an interview with Jill Murray, who worked on both titles, where she talks about scriptwriting for games. [The Mary Sue/The Border House]
  • This week I’ve somehow found my way back to some older articles that are still very relevant, chief among them Polygon’s feature on queer indie games. They go into a lot of detail about everything from the history of queer games to the Twine subculture. It’s really great.
  • Another oldie but goodie is this piece on the history of women warriors. It’s a beautifully written article that challenges the idea that women are always either the victims or the spoils of war. There is also a llama analogy. [A Dribble of Ink]
  • You didn’t think I wouldn’t mention Batwomangate, did you? Of course not. DC has had a bad time of it this past little while. And by “bad” I mean “it doesn’t seem like anyone over there has two braincells to rub together.” First, the writers of Batwoman left the company, citing constant editorial changes and DC’s unwillingness to let Batwoman marry Maggie Sawyer (despite two separate proposals) as the reason for their departure. Publisher Dan DiDio tried to backpedal, but io9 lays out exactly why his excuses are rubbish. Second, the company announced a contest in which one lucky artist will win a job at DC by drawing supervillain Harley Quinn essentially killing herself by sitting naked in a bathtub surrounded by electric appliances (happy National Suicide Prevention Week, by the way). Head over to the Daily Dot for more details. ThinkProgress has a good breakdown of how tone-deaf these decisions make DC look, and Bitch also reminds us about a recent incident at FanExpo, and the sore spot that is DC’s hiring of Orson Scott Card. There’s a reason that Has DC Comics Done Something Stupid Today is a website that exists.
