Summary: Valkyrie has been asked by the Lady Tigra to teach the young women of the Avengers Academy how to do battle. She is determined to prepare them for more than that. Takes place is Avengers Academy issue #3, last lines taken directly from there.

Prompt: Marvel Comics, Valkyrie and the female members of Avengers Academy, how men will disappoint you.

         Valkyries are sworn to chastity, and men whom they take as their champions and who then spurn them have rarely met good ends.

         Samantha is more than aware of this, and she is enthusiastic to teach the ladies of Avengers Academy why this should be so.

         Because the ladies here were young and trusting, and she would not allow them to be too harshly burned.

Feminism FTW!Collapse )

Summary: Kate Bishop will never back down, not even from the Goddess of Death.

Prompt: Marvel Comics, Kate Bishop/Cassie Lang and Hela, "Yes, I snuck into Hel to break someone out. No, I'm not leaving without her. Any questions?"

Afterwards, Tommy sums up Kate’s adventure with, "She pretty much went up to the Goddess of Death and said yeah, I snuck into Hel to break someone out. No, I'm not leaving without her and if you try to make me stay, I will kick your ass. Any questions?"

Kate rolls her eyes and lets the boys and the new Captain America sidekick laugh and gasp in awe at Billy- who elbowed his twin and proceeded to “tell the real story” as Cassie giggles, wrapped in her father’s arms and smiling conspiratorially at Kate.

That’s…not inaccurate, but it leaves out a lot of the things Kate had to do.

Adventure to Hel!Collapse )

End of Heroines Fest 2012

Thanks to everyone who has participated this year!

I'm going to leave posting to the community open. If you're inspired by one of the prompts, you are welcome to post to the community anytime during the next year.
