Which Character In The Adventurer Alphabet Do You Want To Be?

It’s a tough call; Ver (Sticks&Sharks on Tumblr) makes them all look so cool. The Inquisitor speaks to my soul, but the Freelancer… damn, that hat. The artist has said they might “revisit and re-stylize” this series at some point in the future, and we can only hope that happens. I want to see what X is.

Supernatural, Batwoman, Orphan Black Snag GLAAD Award Nominations

Yup. You read that right. Supernatural, a show outdone in sheer amount of queerbaiting only by Sherlock (yeah, I said it), got nominated for an award meant to honor the portrayal of LGBT persons in media. What’s more, the reason for the nom actually makes sense! Thanks, Felicia Day. We owe you one or five.

Tumblr Artists Imagine Frozen‘s Lead As Something Other Than Another White Disney Princess

Disney princesses, taken as a collective group, are awfully white. You know it. I know it. Aliens probably know it. It’s a fact that a lot of people (justifiably) don’t like. One of those people harnessed their desire to see more non-white representation in Disney movies and started This Could Have Been Frozen, a Tumblr devoted to fan-created concept art for Disney’s upcoming Frozen (and/or The Snow Queen, the fairy tale on which it was based) that imagines its lead as something other than a Rapunzel lookalike.

The site’s admin, Alex, is careful to note that their objective “is not to boycott or ‘hate’ on Disney’s current Frozen, but to point out how diversity and PoC could [have] still been done” in the film and to “emphasize [Disney's] lack of diversity.” After all, while Frozen is set in Scandinavia, it’s not like there are only white people there. And it’s based on a fairy tale that has multicultural variations.

And heck, it’s just a fun art project, too. Take a lok at some of our favorites behind the jump.
