Guys. Seriously. I just rambled on an email chain about this but seriously.
Give me all the Darcy and Thor are bros fic. Tell me about them discussing all the hot ladies and gents they’re surrounded by while living in the tower. Give me the stories where they’re not banging each other but slamming down beers together. Spin me tales of Darcy and Thor food adventures exploring NYC. Yarns of getting kicked out of dive bars. Thor being Darcy’s wingman. Darcy introducing Thor to snap chat. Darcy’s instagram being more popular than Tony’s because of all the pictures of Thor and puppies/Thor and kittens/Thor looking in delight at the tree all lit up at Christmas.
Ugh. They totally share an IG account. Of shenanigans.
She plans his stag night.
They have a secret handshake.
They disappear for a weekend (Jane sort of notices but she busy like answering the Questions of Science. Plus she knows how truelove5ever she and Thor are. Plus Darcy respects the relatively monogamous bond she and Thor have. Darcy appreciates the pretty of both Jane and Thor separately and together but dating him? Pass. ) and neither of them speak of the happenings that happen but. There are matching bro tattoos that come out of that weekend and possibly an international incident.
Platonic friendmates for life, yo.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO THIS!
…I will try? *hides* uh. I work crazy hours so uh I will try to write it?
A lot of people have told me that Fibromyalgia isn’t real. I’ve been told that I imagine the pain and exhaustion and that I do it for attention. I’ve also been told that it’s not a disability.
I want people to know that is IS a real medical condition and disability and that we are NOT lying and we are NOT imagining it. Fibromyalgia is real, it exists and we are living proof. It’s time to change how medical professionals see Fibromyalgia and acknowledge that is is real!
44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.
I WENT FOR THE TALKING RACCOON MOTHAFUCKAS
My white teacher was like:
"9/11 is arguably the worst thing to ever happen in the United States"
All the pocs in the class, all 3 of us were like:
Although I have to point out that there was a piece of speculative science fiction called The Blazing World published by one Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1666, slightly predating Mary Shelley.
This is the thing. Women have been doing awesome shit since there was awesome shit to do, we’ve BEEN THERE, if anyone bothered to look.
Oh, they looked. And then maliciously and willfully erased us from the books to keep anyone else from “getting ideas.”
Hell, the first named author in history? Enheduanna, a Sumerian high priestess, poet and lyricist. She’s known as the Shakespeare of Sumerian literature.
The first American mystery novel was written by Metta Victoria Fuller Victor, as well as the first dime novel, and the first crime novel..
ok so not related to novels so much, but I wanna add that a Tunisian woman called Fatima al-Fihri founded the very first University in the year 859 — the University of al-Qarawiyyin, which is located in the city of Fez in Morocco and to this day is still being used.
Annnnd apparently folks are really into my personal headcanon/fic desires for brotp Thor and Darcy fic.
Sometimes I wish ao3 had a half kudos or 3/4 kudos option.
"I thought the story was great until the end. Then I got let down. 1/4 of a kudo."
"… that’s it? But, but… resolution? :| half a kudo."
"This fic was so awesome then… you lost me with one or two things that took me right out of it. But valiant effort. Mostly enjoyed! 3/4 of a kudo."
"… why didn’t you tag for ambiguous endings/character death/dub con? I was with you till the end and this is what you do to me? Negative 5 kudos. Go to your room. Think about what you’ve done. Now I’m going to have to read kid fic for an hour to patch up the hole in my fic reading heart that you have left."
I do appreciate the effort and hard work that goes into fic and the bravery it takes to put it out there. I do.
But I feel disingenuous leaving a full kudo but shitty for not leaving one at all.
I still want a”take backsies” option for kudos. Like you preemptively kudo a wip then boom they shank you in the kidney.
I live in hope.
