I am a girl who does things. Here there be geekery, writing, feminism, photography, geeky feminism and sometimes ponies. Don't worry, I won't tell anyone that you're only here for the ponies.
Like what you saw or read here? Interested in getting rid of some of that pesky extra money you've got just sitting under your mattress? Well, consider throwing a few bucks in my tip jar!
that people genuinely believe billy magically coerced teddy into falling in love with him is really, really sad, and you are missing the entire point of their relationship
People really think this?
Yes, and that he has somehow magicked himself and Speed into being Wanda’s kids. Which makes even less sense than the official explanation.
Yeah folks. Missing the entire point of characters canon relationships is the job the writers are paid for!
Billy’s character arc for awhile has been dealing with the fact that he is kind of insanely powerful and that power can be incredibly dangerous if he uses it. I feel like the question that was raised in YA recently by Loki was how can anyone even be sure when he is or isn’t using it? Billy can alter reality at will and we know that with Wanda she can do so and leave people completely unaware that reality has been altered (see: House of M, obvs.). The question becomes when someone can warp reality like that, what the hell IS reality and is there even a point to it? Even better: what if Billy alters reality and doesn’t realize he’s even doing it?
Is reality all it’s really cracked up to be?
On top of that, even if we know that Billy probably didn’t really alter reality so he ended up with Teddy, even planting the idea in either of their heads is a totally messed up and thoroughly Loki thing to do.
Basically, in the immortal words of Queen: IS THIS THE REAL LIFE? IS THIS JUST FANTASY?
