I know I’ve seen a post on here comparing MARVEL’s Loki and She-Ra (2018)’s Double Trouble, and if I could find you again I’d tag you because I realized something else the other day.
Here’s one more snake to add. Welcome Janus Sanders to the group.
Right, so here’s what I’ve come up with (and seen other places) so far:
Double Trouble and Loki both like the color green. yep
Loki (in Ragnarok) and Janus both wear yellow. yep
All three generally have black as a big part of the outfit.
ALL OF THEM ARE SHAPE SHIFTERS.
Loki likes to turn into a snake, as Thor says in Ragnarok, and I’m sure there’s some other instance of this in other movies or in the comics. Janus is our half snake boi. Double Trouble is a reptilian species of some sort.
Janus is. Deceit. So. I’d say he matches the god of lies pretty well on that front.
Janus and Double Trouble both pose as a member of the group (using their acting and shape shifting skills).
Double Trouble and Janus both have at least one yellow eye.
If we go with the MARVEL comics, Loki is genderfluid (really hoping they bring in that in the Loki TV show). Double Trouble is nonbinary. Janus is gay (nearly positive on that one).
Alright, so here we have our three not exactly human reptilian shapeshifting liars who are each some part of lgbtq+. (These are characters I love with my whole heart, if that wasn’t clear. Please don’t turn this into discourse, I’m just enjoying sharing some parallels I found.) Feel free to add on more.

i welcome you to my shadow weaver twins au.
now you’re thinking - so sw and ls are going to be different people? no. they’re the same. but she has a twin SHE HAS AN IDENTICAL TWIN this is super self indulgent because I love this dynamic it reminds me of suyin & lin beifong from legend of korra and EVERYONE KNOWS that all kyalin shippers from lok migrated to she ra and started shipping castaweaver (that’s what I did anyway sheesh)
right, so. light and daisy. yes this is based of the fact i have a hc where shadow weaver’s given name was actually daisy.
light is the shadow weaver we know and love, and daisy is her twin sister.
they grew up with only a mom and we are not even going to get into their home life oh my god guys the mommy issues really jumped out ANYWAYS light decided she wanted to pursue a future in magic so she studied & went to mystacor, while daisy stayed at home with their mom. no magic, no obtainment shenanigans. just living peacefully.
daisy is completely disconnected from society by the way, she knows of the war but that isn’t her problem, her problem is the fact that it’s getting harder to grow food for herself because the horde keeps polluting the land ugh. she’s mainly a true neutral in the fight, but she wouldn’t mind if the horde stopped ah, you know, ruining the entire ecosystem.
flash forward to season 3 episode 1, or what i like to call it, milf central, everything goes according to the original script.
angella & casta try to interrogate shadow weaver (with little success) and casta reveals that there was someone interested in seeing shadow weaver.
her capture was not public information. like no one knew but high ranking officials from bright moon and casta (not sure about officials from mystacor) so they’re confused on who the frick it is, and more importantly, how they found out they have shadow weaver in their custody and managed to send them a whole message saying that they’re coming to see her.
casta and angella are trying to ask shadow weaver who it is, but as you guys may remember, that bitch was DYING (BAHAHAHAHAHA I SHOULD NOT BE LAUGHING THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE SERIOUS i take nothing seriously) so her thinking is mixed and confused and she just wants to go get drunk and call it a night but nooooo she has to be in the frickin. Bright Moon Spare Room. So coveted.
and they’re trying to shake an answer out of her because the message didn’t seem like it was from the horde but it could still be from a dangerous party and
daisy bursts through the overly elegant doors to the “prison” and squeals when she sees the three of them.
castaspella is the first to recognize her - not because they knew eachother personally (they didn’t) but because daisy just so happened to sound almost exactly like shadow weaver, just higher pitched. her face is identical to the one she saw growing up in mystacor, and she’s just at a freaking loss for words as daisy walks through the barrier and tears the mask off of shadow weaver’s face.
angella is just watching like. (0 . 0) because the only recollection of shadow weaver’s face is from stories micah used to tell her, it took her a little longer to get it.
daisy is freaking out, the first time she’d seen her sister in so long . she completely ignores the scars on her face and litters her with kisses.
castaspella is just watching in awe. she never knew shadow weaver had any relatives - that were alive, anyway - so seeing almost a perfect copy of the woman is FREAKING HER OUT !! i would be freaking out too don’t worry .
and daisy starts asking how mystacor had been treating her because she had no idea of what happened in s2 ep6 (light spinner) and no one is stopping her because angella and casta are doing the thing where they point at the both of them with their jaws unhinged and dropping to the floor because they are in such shock.
“i missed you light”
“this isnt the time.”
after the whole shock factor wears off, castaspella kindly (not so kindly) removes daisy from the spell circle and drags her to another room with angella in tow. shadow weaver is just sitting there like :/
“are you two friends with light? my sister may be rough, sorry about that, but i assure you she has a heart of gold!”
they pull up the merged information file between bright moon & mystacor, detailing every single thing they knew about shadow weaver/light spinner including everything on the spell of obtainment. they show her the file and for some reason daisy is reading it as if it’s some sort of fictional story - like a comic book.
she’s never been involved with the war - she has no side in it - she would support her sister whether she was with the rebellion or the horde, because she valued family over beliefs.
she never bothered to “learn all that magic crap” so she’s just. a blank slate. that just so happens to have the same face as their biggest liability.
you all must know that im a sucker for long lost siblings, and i am literally on the verge of writing out the ROUGHEST draft for a story where shadow weaver genuinely doesn’t want catra to believe she defected to the rebellion, so she SENDS HER SISTER OUT to try and impersonate her as she works with bright moon to try and end the war.
yeah i don’t think daisy would do a very good job of impersonating her. if I actually get to writing it then… we’ll see. until then I will daydream about getting railed by shadow weaver as we good people do
oh well it’s 4 am I can’t sleep so I’m going to tell tumblr about ANOTHER au i have about shadow weaver/light spinner 😇 be right back I have to check my spam posts so I get the explanation right & then spend half an hour furiously typing it into tumblr ☺️
i just know my mom found my drafts last night & saw my 3 page long keyboard slam filled shadow weaver simpfest and that’s why she can’t look me in the eye today

Adora as Sailor V
Back in October, I started an Adora/Catra fanfic for Halloween. In it, Adora dresses up in a Sailor V costume (based on the 90s anime)
Because I’m nothing if not over ambitious, I decided to try and draw this myself.
Huge, huge thank you to my amazing friends who supported and helped me with my first ever piece of fan art, I absolutely could not have done it without you.
Right. So. I was thinking. and I was like “Damn, let me look at Light Spinner real quick, what’s a fitting name for her?” and then it hit me.
What if Shadow Weaver/Light Spinner’s real/given name was Daisy. I’m fucking losing it. I am on the floor.
Side note, there’s a stray cat in the parking of my grandma’s apartment complex, and I saw her again today. This was right after I had the name epiphany, so I named her Daisy.
