( So very much not my favorite )
( Which Kryptonian do I wish to steal from specifically? )
The characters I speak of all populated a world that was originally five decades old. They lived on a world where the first superheroes appeared and united during World War II and formed the first superhero team in the history of superhero teams. These were the characters that aged in real time, married, and had families of their own. Their own children eventually took over their jobs as superheroes once they were old and retired or had passed on after a long, fruitful life. Their own legacy even led the arrival of a new generation of superheroes that were more diverse than their predecessors.
( I am of course, talking about the pre-Crisis Earth-2 in all its Golden Age glory! )
In fact, these too ladies are so slashy, I literally had trouble setting limitations for myself. That's how much there is, I often never know where to begin:
( Lo and behold! The Worlds' Finest Lesbian Subtext )
( The Many Faces of Thomas Blake, aka The Catman! )
Also, sorry this is late. Photobucket wasn't cooperating with me ever since it received 938445989 upgrades. :(
As a reminder, please don't forget to tag your posts as Series: 31 Days Of Scans!

Since this month's theme is 'Favourite Female Character,' now's the time to start requesting stories with your favourite comic book ladies from your fellow S_Ders!
Presentate la vostra richiesta nei commenti!
As you are all well aware, our veteran moderator, greenmask, has decided to retire her position on the mod team, as has shobogan who's also been a member of the mod team since 2011. We would like to thank greenmask in particular for all of her hard and awesome work that she's contributed to the comms in the 2.5 years that she's been active. On a more personal note, she--along with benicio127 --has been a wonderful mod whom I've looked up to since first joining the mod team, and I've certainly learnt a lot from her in the one year that I got to work alongside her. I wish her well in pursuing new avenues in her life, though I hope she sticks around as a regular member of the comm! ;)
Given that we are now officially down to a mod team of four, we've decided to try something new for recruiting new mods onto our team: give members a chance to apply to be a part of the mod team!
Wait! What? We can actually apply now for a chance to be a part of the mod team? Yes, you heard right! this is your chance to actually apply for modship. Since we have two openings at the moment, you have twice the chance to make it. :)
Here's how this works:
In the comments section down below, we would like you to write a paragraph or two detailing why you would like to be a part of the mod team and what you will personally bring to the comms of both scans_daily and noscans_daily if recruited as a moderator. Please just copy-paste this application fand fill it out, although feel free to add any extra details beyond that which you think may be pertinent:
ALL COMMENTS WILL BE SCREENED FOR PRIVACY!
Once we gain enough entries, we will then go through each application one by one and pick our two new mods from there.
There will be a more detailed orientation for our new mods later on when we actually recruit them, but ideal traits we look for in a potential mod:
- A thorough and complete understanding of the comm rules and ethos, plus a familiarity with (or willingness to learn) non-aggressive community management.
- Someone who is willing to be active on both Scans and NoScans Daily.
- Someone who can bring new and fresh ideas to the mod team for enhancing community experience. (Again, if you have some ideas, please detail these in your comments)!
- Someone who will actively read through threads and actively moderate them for problematic behaviour, rhetoric, language, etc and be willing to issue mod notes.
- Someone who will actively participate in mod discussions of any threads that get reported to the mod team and help out with mod decisions for major violations of the rules.
- Someone who can commit to other active mod duties such as maintaining the Scans Daily Twitter account, managing tags, approving new members, posting theme weeks, etc.
- Someone who is a team player and is willing to be a part of a Mod Team that works by consensus.
That being said: bring on the applications!
Buon coraggio ragazzi!

The themes for the month of December seems to have been well received, so I think it would be neat to have more themes more regularly on the comm, and doing them for a full month allow people to post without having to worry about the deadlines. ;) (I know I've had troubles with that one themes previously *cough*).
Have a neat idea for a theme? Post about them in the comments! We'll try to start March with one of the popular one! :3
Two and a half years of modship inside of nine (:0) years on-and-off membership: scans daily has been a dear place to me. Thanks for the memories! And - thank you for the lessons. I'm grateful for every time you held me accountable, asked that I explain myself, showed me I was wrong or ignorant, or helped me to find a greater confidence by being impossible adversaries. You've been a terrible hassle and it's been brilliant; you've showed me how to do less harm and that's a treasure.
But so importantly, thank you for the COMICS. Death Note, Scott Pilgrim, X-Statix, Unwritten, Daken, Bande(s?) dessinée in general, SO MANY MORE. Romance comics, horror comics, Kate Beaton comics! What a beautiful education.
I may be some time, but I'll likely be back. I usually am.
