and “fake geek guy” of the day goes to…
I was idly doodling Captain Marvel today, sitting at university. A guy comes and sits next to me. It may or may not be relevant to this story that I’m wearing short shorts, fishnets and a fairly low-cut shirt.
"What’re you doing?"
"Drawing Captain Marvel. I’m a bit of a Marvel fan."
"Oh, you think you’re a Marvel fan? Do you know the X-men?"
"I know of them, but haven’t read anything relevant, I’m afraid. I got hooked into all this by The Avengers and Tumblr, so I’m a bit of a newbie.”
"Obviously. I mean, you totally made up some hot chick and named her after the comic company"
"You’re just trying to get guys, aren’t you? You think you’re so hot but you’re not. Talking geeky like that as if you know what you’re talking about until they catch you out."
And then I pull out my trade paperback (Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Captain Marvel: In Pursuit of Flight) as an art reference, having forgotten exactly how Carol’s boots work. Not at all flaunting it, of course. Or forcing it down the guy’s throat. At all. Now why would I do that?
