When i was 10, I sent a letter to Lemony Snicket. I didn’t receive a personal reply, but I got one of these. 7 years later I realized that there’s a message
My life happens to, on occasion, suck beyond the telling of it. Sometimes more than I can handle.
I know you don’t like to talk, but you gotta do it for her.

My sister and her gf entered a video contest for Joan Jett in which they made a video for Joan’s song TMI and Joan will be using the winning video as her official video for the song. Their video is actually ace and they need more votes so if you can please vote for them that would be really sweet! Theirs is under RSVPRODUCTIONS. Literally takes three clicks! Thanks!

"You don’t raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they’ll turn out to be heroes, even if it’s just in your own eyes."
there shall never be an alexander like you;
#am i going to reblog every alexander thing i find again just one more time for good measure? yes yes i am#who’s a codependent slightly oedipal boy??? you are! yes you are!! yes you are!!!!#writing to his mother up until the day of his death; backed her in every struggle with antipater no matter how ridiculous she got#stomached every complaint she had over the course of 12 years except for the one against hephaestion (always always hephaestion)#pretty much gave her hegemony over macedonia and epirus in all but name - the fact that she ordered grain from the chersoneses#in her own name for an entire country; something that not even kings did; really speaks measures about the kind of power she was wielding#and all the while he never invited her to babylon; never asked her to take a tour of his new empire; never sent his bride to her#the most formative and impactful relationship of his life and he never indicated that he wanted anything to do with her after he was crowned#and when he died it’s HER and not any of his generals not any of his men not any of the soldiers he loved so much#who took up arms to defend his legacy - ptolemy had his body hijacked in syria; craterus deliberately dawdled in asia minor to partake int e#political struggle; antipater and cassander plotted and planned to overthrow the argeads; a dozen of his closest friends threw their support#behind arridaios KNOWING he was unfit to rule; none of the men he gave his heart to ever returned it in the way he wanted#which is to say love not only in life but in death - as soon as he stopped breathing he was a physical testament of political power#his body was a symbol of potency and a marker of status#out of all of them it was olympias - nearing fucking sixty who raised an army and rode out in front of it flying her son’s standard#to reclaim the empire for her grandson#no one else. no one else even dared; even TRIED#and the fact that all the troops then laid down their arms because they refused to fight the mother of alexander the great#which goes to show - you have to be a god to birth a god

By far the stupidest criticism of the new Thor is ‘no where in Norse mythology is Thor a woman, stop messing with mythology.’
Right, because Norse mythology is just fucking filled with stories about Thor hanging out with Iron Man and Captain America at the Avengers Tower.
Someone discuss Dean’s firearm with me, and how it’s the most feminine thing he owns, with it’s golden casing, custom engraving and pearl grips, and how it’s obviously his favorite gun, because he uses it all the time, and I always wonder how it came to be in his possession.
Was it passed down to him from someone? Though I doubt John would have owned something so ornate, it’s possible. Maybe it was Mary’s? Or one of Bobby’s? Did he pick it out himself? Why would he choose this particular style instead of the original?
Seriously, here is this young man, and for all the gruff posturing and machismo he exudes, his gun is almost a mirror of himself; a pretty little thing that can kill you.
I love you for this.

Honestly, I’m really only interested in soulmate AUs with alternative plots.
I don’t really care about person A and person B who have each other’s names on their wrists and find each other and live happily ever after. I care about a culture where people don’t bother forming romantic relationships with anyone other than their soulmate, where they finally find their soulmate and realize they don’t know how to handle the ups and downs of a relationship.
I care about people who fall in love with someone who isn’t their soulmate and aren’t willing to leave.
I care about queer people who are outed by the names on their arms, about trans people who spend their whole lives worrying that their birth name will be on their soulmate’s arm, then sobbing in relief when it’s not.
I care about people in poly relationships and how that looks.
I care about asexual aromantic people who have a name anyway and wonder if they’re broken or if it’s the platonic soulmate they’ve always wanted.
I care about people who Google their soulmate and are disappointed by what they find. I care about the private detective agencies that rake in cash to help people find their soulmates. I care about the ways non-soulmate couples are discriminated against, from disapproving grandmas to insurance companies that won’t insure someone’s spouse unless they’re their soulmate. I care about teenagers who are devastated that their celebrity crush isn’t their soulmate and what happens when the media discovers a young, unknown person whose soulmate is hugely famous.
I care about the people who never meet their soulmates, whose soulmates died young, whose soulmates have another name on their arms.
I care about the ways that this is a broken system, how it fucks people up, how it doesn’t guarantee a happy ending and how people find their happy endings anyway.
