The Women of Trek
Jes, I think you’ll like the DS9 section of this picture.
one difference between cats and dogs is that dogs do absolutely nothing to mask their clinginess while cats pretend it’s a coincidence they’re in the same room as you 97% of the time

John Crichton + tickles my pickle
#the thing i love so much about john crichton is that he is nominally the leading man #but rapidly undermines every macho romantic trope there is #he is the physically less capable to the trained sublime warrior that is aeryn sun #he’s considered an idiot barbarian by most species he encounters #he rapidly eschews and abandons almost every inhibition or notion of normality he has #which includes the trappings of macho-ness (which - interestingly - he only assumes #when he is impersonating a peacekeeper captain) #he’s emotionally raw and vulnerable and unstable - #in fact in some story arcs occupies the same kind of narrative role as women often get shunted into a la river song #the one with otherworldly power or knowledge or capacity that makes them terrifying and a target and often out of control of their own #agency #and he swings wildly from being a figure of absolute ridiculousness or absurdity to terrifying violent lows #i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again #in any other show these people would be the villains #they are branded as fugitives and terrorists and it *gets* to them #they get compromised and make stupid cruel selfish choices oriented entirely around self-preservation and home #and family #and john crichton devolves entirely from his polished scientist-astronaut daredevil leading man #into something much more peculiar and subversive and viscerally thrilling #and he keeps his heart the whole way through
Now I want to cry / watch all the Farscape.
