"Children’s and YA books are about being brave and kind, about learning wisdom and love, about that journey into and through maturity that we all keep starting, and starting again, no matter how old we get. I think that’s why so many adults read YA: we’re never done coming of age."

Harry Potter Becomes a Communist has 24 chapters and I read them all

HILARIOUS! But proceed with caution. The language is horrible. I mean, it’s making a statement, and other characters call it out, but still.

This is a frightened city. Over these streets, over these houses hangs a pall of fear. An ugly kind of violence is rife, stalking the town. Yes, gangs of old ladies attacking fit, defenseless young men.

I don’t need feminism because I like it when a man opens the door for me to enter a room. And then leave it again. And enter. And leave. And… enter. No wait, leave, definitely leave. Wait, I mean enter…

Cutest Thor Ever via Mary Sue.

This is adorable!

I AM GOING TO ACQUIRE THIS CHILD AND LOVE HER

THIS MIDGARDIAN CHILD HIS GOOD TASTE!  METHINKS PERHAPS WE ARE SEEING A FUTURE FEMALE WARRIOR!

My head canon is that each of the Avengers ends up with core group of fangirl/boys, like Natasha’s (or the one she acknowledges) are teenage girls mainly who see her as their hero, little boys love the Hulk, but Thor? Little girls between like the ages of 4 and 10, cause dude he is a Prince, who rides on a rainbow bridge, and is basically the fairy tale prince in real life. And Thor fucking loves it. His room at the Tower is just plastered with drawings they send him, and he tries as hard as he can to respond to each and every letter he gets. 

HEADCANON ACCEPTED.

And Clint and Tony would try to tease Thor about it but he’s just so proud of all his little fangirls and of the drawings and other things they send him and he’s so earnest about it that Clint and Tony end up more than a little jealous.

I AM SO OKAY WITH THIS IDEA

and oh man I just picture him meeting one of his little baby fans and they have their own little baby mjolnir and he asks her if she’d like to hold the real one, and her eyes get all big because what?? only thor can hold mjolnir! she knows that!! So he crouches down next to her, gently holding her hand as it holds mjolnir so that even though he’s the one holding the weight, she gets to feel like she’s actually the one holding the hammer and her eyes go half as big as her whole head as grins all big and he tells her ”clearly you are worthy, little warrior!”

STOP IT

MY POOR HEART

image

OH GODS and now I can’t help but picture Thor visiting a posse of his little fan girls in the children’s wing of the local hospital and spending all day with them and letting them give him a makeover and braid his hair and like 5 of them are braiding his hair all at the same time and two are painting his fingernails (gold to match Mjolnir) and he’s telling them that they are amazingly brave warriors and then Tony finds out about it and gets real quiet and then every time one of the other Avengers tries to give Thor shit about his fangirls he goes all Iron Man on them…

Fanart? Fanart. The world needs it. Anybody out there good with a pencil?

Take a break from the fandoms and take a moment to read this:

Farah Baker, a 16 year old teen living in the Gaza Strip, has been tweeting and posting on social media sites of the various indiscriminant bombings being committed by Israeli forces, most recently very violent shelling near Al-Shifa hospital by her.

In her countless tweets and numerous posts on both Twitter and Instagram, she documents live strikes using photos and videos to show her followers the severity of the situation her and thousands like her are going through every day. @farah_gazan has gone viral, spiking from 21k to 76k followers on twitter in a span of 24 hours and climbing to 300+ in a matter of hours on Instagram.

Personally, I felt like I was reading something off the diary of Anne Frank. And who knows? Our children might be reading this and asking us why we didn’t stop her from dying just like we did to our grandparents.

The tweets are heartbreaking and the videos are breathtaking. She needs your support. Let her know you stand by her. Follow her on twitter and Instagram and maybe somehow you can change history.

"I can’t stop crying. I might die tonight."
