Lover of cats, slash, and far too many tasteless puns. Provider of far too many Avengers-related reblogs. Has recently fallen into Pacific Rim and doesn't know how to get out again. Feel free to talk to me about anything! And if you must refer to me by name, either Lise or Gala will do.

Where would we be without AO3?
This was the site that helped me really enter fandom as a whole. Whether I was rummaging through the ship tags, marvelling as comments trickled into my inbox, posting new stories for people to read or raving about the latest great one I found, this site made it all possible. The admins are lovely, the layout is flexible, no ads, plus the ability to share and download stories - you can even post art and other media there! 
If you think about it, AO3 has given us more than any other fanfiction platform has and the entire thing is donation-driven by us, and for us.
So let’s give them a hand.

Hero

What. Is. Her. Name.

Thanks to a follower for finding this: Her name is Venus Green.
From this article: 
In July 2009, Green’s grandson, Tallie, was shot and wounded. Tallie said he was shot at a convenience store, but police insisted it happened inside Green’s house and that the shooter was either Tallie or Green.
"Police kept questioning him. They wouldn’t let the ambulance attendant treat him," Green said. "So, I got up and said, ‘Sir, would you please let the attendants treat him? He’s in pain,’" Green said.
Green said the officer said to her, “Oh, you did it, come on, let’s go inside. I’ll prove where that blood is. You did it.”
Police wanted to go the basement, where Tallie lived, but Green refused on the basis that the police did not have a warrant.
"I said, ‘No, you don’t have a warrant. You don’t go down in my house like that. He wasn’t shot in here.’" Green said the officer replied, "I’m going to find that gun. I’m going to prove that you did it."
A struggle ensued between a male officer and Green.
"He dragged me, threw me across the chair, put handcuffs on me and just started calling me the ‘b’ name. He ridiculed me," Green said.
An officer went into the basement and Green locked him inside.
"She locked the door, the basement door. She basically took matters into her own hands," Nilson said.
"This was my private home, and if I latched it, that was my prerogative because he had no search warrant to go in my basement. So, I had to right to latch it," Green said.
Green said she suffered a separated shoulder in the scuffle, and she sued the Police Department for assault and violations of her rights.
"I was once a block watcher, department head of a high school. (I’ve) been around education for over 50 years. (I’m a) law-abiding citizen, I’ve never been arrested, I paid my taxes, owned my home, my husband died 34 years ago. (I) raised my son and I have been brutally abused," Green said. "I feel like the Police Department needs to go back to school."


This woman is a straight up damn hero. Fuck that officer and fuck our police system that empowers arrogant assholes to think they can surpass the law.
