I’ve seen some people be weirded out by their relationship, but it was one the reasons I continued watching! The little hints of attraction drew me in because it was “unconventional "
i don’t get this reaction. if the older character was a man, would everybody be clutching their pearls?
Thank you for writing this. I’m about half-way through the season but every scene with them I’m like “am I weird that I think this is weird?” No. It’s weird. Thank you for making me feel better about thinking it’s weird.
Alfre Woodard and Angela Bassett both have that ineluctable ability to look more attractive with each passing year. Seriously, Angela in Black Panther is a million times hotter than when she was Stella
IF it helps, Shades and Mariah’s relationship only exists in the MCU. In fact, Shades’ a Earth-616 counterpart has been dead for a while now. He was killed in the explosion that gave his son Victor superpowers. Victor nowadays goes as Power Man.
I’ve loved Alfre Woodard since Passion Fish. She can do no wrong. That is all.
I threw up in my mouth a little every single time they kissed.
Mama? Yes i know the word is also used as slang for woman. But the most common meaning is mommy. Ew. An age gap is a thing i can accept. But throwing incest in the mix is just too much.
Going through the damn most right now. My whole body feels like it isn’t strong enough to carry me. Being in meetings gives me the worst heart palpitations. I cook and then can’t eat the food because I lose interest in it. My brain also does this thing where it freezes and is all confused about what it was doing…
Ps. Thanks for the story, keep you mind right.
Check this - I had a huge bout of stress which manifested in heart palpitations. The doctor could find no heart issues (ECG, X-rays etc). I chilled and got well BUT my health insurance now won’t cover any emerging heart conditions. Even though it was completely psychosomatic!
Internet hugs for you, if you’d like them! I get the eye twitch, headaches, stomachaches and somehow, anxiety-induced arthritis. When you type for a living and your typing fingers hurt with every movement it’s not a good time. I’m really glad you don’t still get all of those.
Like most women, my body weight fluctuates according to the season. 10 or 30 pounds, I have the same reaction as you. “OMG! I’m beautiful!”. And we’re both right...we are!
Truly needed this article. A great event for an exceptional organization. I must say Miss Danielle you are GORGEOUS!
It’s Pulitzer time, The Root! Get after it.
This is a really tiny quibble but jazz and orchestral music were popular music for a long time; they’re just not popular now. This, however, doesn’t change at all that the Pulitzer people are hidebound as hell when it comes to current popular tastes (see also Fiction, where exactly one science fiction novel has won…
“he’s also the first performer of “popular” music to receive it” Depending on how you define ‘popular’ music Bob Dylan received a Pulitzer albeit not for music. Which also begs the question, how does a genre devoid of instruments or the ability to read music earn a Pulitzer for music? Anybody can rhyme, Underdog…
TWO NIGHT SPECIAL PREMIER? CANCEL EVERYTHING YALL
They are sooooo purty...thus concludes my moment of shallow.
