Did Zelda inspire her husband’s writing like a dutiful wife and dependable muse? Or did Scott plagiarize his own wife, sabotaging her career and dreams? This is F. Scott Fitzgerald on trial.
You didn’t read that wrong, people. DC comic characters Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy were recently married in DC’s Injustice: Year Zero series!
In the modern comics, Harley and Ivy have been together for a while and it is so great to see the two become life long partners. The two have been a fan favorite OTP. We love to see a liberated Harley, far way from The Joker and his abuse. She set out on her own to create a life for herself, one where she isn’t defined by her relationship but now, where she can truly be herself, have actual friends and a loving relationship.
Though their relationship has had some push back, love truly conquered all. The series writer Tom Taylor confirmed that their love has led them to martial bliss. This moment is not only amazing for the characters but for representation as well. To see two, strong, capable women in love and written tastefully is beautiful to see. And we need more of it! So, the gays have truly truly won, folks. We love to see it!

Oh the Hunger Games. Truly the best of the pack from the dystopian craze, at least in my opinion. It had everything. Fire, social commentary, death, crazy outfits. More movies than you can count. It’s been a while, but I know we’re still hype, and the second Mockingjay movie came out four years ago today, so let’s open some old wounds and have some laughs.
I’m Just Saying

Look. If we were married, we would live in the same place, and therefore we’d have tons of time to work on the project. Just smart thinking, right? The only group project anyone ever wants to do. Yeah, this part of the story was insanely depressing, but don’t we all sometimes feel like we’re tap dancing just a few inches ahead of death? Just me? And if you’re asking someone to marry you in literally any other situation, you need to look happier about it. Just a tip.

The Hunger Games didn’t invent killing all your characters and breaking everyone’s hearts. If anything, The Hunger Games was more metal about it, because those books were directed at a younger audience. I mean, maybe younger people thank I think watch GOT, but the audience for this was potentially young. I was a teenager when the last book came out, probably, but imagine reading it and being Prue’s age, younger. Rooting for her. Too soon?
Advice vs. Execution

If it ain’t me. He’s just lucky he didn’t fall over. I know the act natural trope is crazy overused, but I just can’t be mad when it’s always so funny. As someone who’s never succeeded at seeming unbothered in my life, I can just relate on a really deep level. Sure, I’ve never gotten to the point of wearing a white suit about it, but I did once back into a table and fall over trying to act calm and professional. That might just be a me thing. Peeta does look awkward, though. Maybe because that collar’s clearly stabbing him.

Look, I like to think I’d say to hell with the capital too, but at the same time, cushy job, probably some crazy hats, literally more food than you can eat… Sure, it worked out for him, but he really rolled the dice, didn’t he? For most of the rebellion it was like, hmm, do we fight or do we accept death? They could only profit. Maybe he saw an opportunity, maybe he was just a really good dude deep down, but his character really shows you the limits of first person narrative.

*air horn sound* Alright, it’s probably not that funny. I just love it when people laugh really hard and I don’t get it like that. Look at the reaction image! Is it that funny to someone? Is it ironic laughter? Either way I’m amused. I also have a bunch of questions about snow. He was basically omnipotent, and he couldn’t make that work for him. For all he seemed clever in the books, I really don’t know how he let himself get killed by an excited crowd. What a fall from grace.

When Camre Curto started to lose her memory, her husband wanted a way for her to remember their ten-year relationship together. Now, Steve Curto, 38, has written and self-published But I Know I Love You, a book about everything from their first date to the birth of their son. But Camre, 31, has no memory of any of the book’s events.

Camre suffered a seizure and stroke on the day she gave birth to the couple’s son, Gavin. Though her pregnancy was fairly normal, she began to experience frequent vomiting in the third trimester. 33 weeks into the pregnancy, she had to be rushed to the hospital, where she went into a grand mal seizure.
The doctors conducted a c-section to save the couple’s baby, but after the seizure, Camre also suffered a stroke that wiped out her short and long-term memory.
“She couldn’t recall memories prior to her brain injury and she can’t remember short-term memories now,” said Jessica Smith, Camre’s occupational therapist. “What happened to her is extremely rare.”
“When I met Camre, she made me want to be a better person and that’s what I loved about her,” Steve Curto said. “Then this happened and I just wasn’t going to give up hope that we could regain what we had. This girl, she has no idea who I am but she loves me and we’re going to make this work.”

Camre spent more than a month in the hospital after the birth, beginning to recover from the trauma of her stroke. Steve wrote But I Know I Love You in part to help Camre regain her memory during recovery. The title comes from something Camre said when she first came home and she and Steve were sitting on the couch.
“We were sitting on the couch and she told me, ‘I don’t who you are but I know I love you,'” said Steve. “That has always stuck with me. That has been the driving force behind everything.”

Literature is full of countless incredible female characters, and many of them are able to make a mark on the worlds they inhabit. Some, though, aren’t so lucky. Some don’t get the happy endings they deserve. Let’s take a look at some wronged women from classic literature.
Lydia Bennet – Pride & Prejudice

Okay, so things work out a LITTLE less tragic for this version of Lydia, but overall she should’ve had more help. All those sisters, and no one to protect her from Wickham. She carries on a whole secret affair and actually runs away with him, and no one’s any the wiser. Lydia is only fifteen, and even though Wickham is eventually forced to marry her, basically satisfying everyone, she deserved so much better than that user. It’s honestly hard to watch. Know your value, girl!
Morgan Le Fay – Arthurian Legend

Morgan Le Fay has been reimagined countless times since her legendary origins, and it seems like every time she gets a little more evil. Sure, from the beginning she was ambiguous, and who could blame her? Of course, she was always ambiguous, but so were her motives. The supposed half sister of King Arthur, and possible lover of Merlin, it’s not clear how Morgan gained her powers. She’s married off almost as soon as Arthur is born. Nevertheless, she’s a powerful character, and doesn’t need to be vilified.
Ophelia – Hamlet

Ophelia is maybe the classic example. What did she ever do to anybody? Okay, so she isn’t perfect, but being constantly yelled at and gaslit by the rest of the cast would make anyone a little jittery. Sometimes Hamlet acts like he cares about her, sometimes he doesn’t. On several occasions he’s extremely, senselessly cruel. Her father is a little better. Ophelia just gets tossed around by the rest of the plot, trying to live her life when no one has the least interest in her. She deserved a lot better.
