cap 2 just solidifies this post
I think the main reason I don’t want to ship them romantically (besides the fact that I really like movieverse Widow with Hawkeye) is that they’re such good FRIENDS and I like that so much.
"Alex Stoddard was born in Jacksonville, Florida and spent his childhood growing up in the deep south. He began taking self-portraits at the age of sixteen in the woods behind his Georgian home, and this stirred in him the need to create and express himself through the craft of photography.
His work focuses on the human form and the process of infusing it with natural surroundings. He also strives to create whimsical and surreal portraits.”
“[Spiderman] represents the everyman, but he represents the underdog and those marginalized who come up against great prejudice which I, as a middle-class straight, white man, don’t really understand so much. And when Stan Lee first wrote and created this character, the outcast was the computer nerd, was the science nerd, was the guy that couldn’t get the girl. Those guys now run the world. So how much of an outcast is that version of Peter Parker anymore? That’s my question.”—
Part of Andrew Garfield’s response to people being all butthurt when he mentioned a possibility where Spiderman might not be straight.
“Don’t wait. Writers are the only artists I know of who expect to get somewhere by waiting. Everyone knows you have to dance to be a dancer, you have to sing to be a singer, you have to act to be an actor, but far too many people seem to believe that you. don’t have to write to be a writer. So, instead of writing, they wait. Isaac Asimov said it beautifully in just six words: “It’s the writing that teaches you.” Writing is what teaches you. Writing is what leads to “inspiration.” Writing is what generates ideas. Nothing else-and nothing less. Don’t meditate, don’t do yoga, don’t do drugs. Just write.”—

REBLOGGING TIMES TEN!
They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re all together ooky, and now their home has been splendidly recreated using paper. Los Angeles-based artist Alan Ronay of Everyday Miniatures made this beautiful papercraft model of the interior of the Addams’ wonderfully spooky mansion from the 1960s tv series.
"I made the effort to capture the mood of the set using texture and shadows and by reproducing the set decoration as faithfully as possible. I used a slightly purple tint to give it that 1960s CRT nostalgia feel."
Ronay’s handmade model comes with paper standees of Gomez, Morticia, Lurch, and Cousin Itt and features a host of amazing details that made the Addam’s house so unforgettable, such as:
- You can see the shadow of Kitty Kat, the family lion, coming down the stairs.
- A portrait of Gomez’s business partner is hanging on the wall.
- Pierre the moose is hanging on the wall over the fireplace.
- Thing is popping out of a box on the harpsichord.
- Morticia’s peacock chair.
- Cousin Farouk is hanging on the wall.
- A copy of TV Guide with the Addams Family on the cover.
In addition to this one-of-a-kind piece, Ronay also created a downloadable DIY version that includes all the instructions and print files necessary to make your own scale model of the Addams’ Living Room, Stairs, Piano and character standees. All you’ll need is some paper, scissors, a printer, ruler, glue and a flesh-eating plant or two.

okay but a story about an asexual pirate who gets made fun of by the crew until he saves all of them from sirens
A pirate for the adventure, not the booty
oh my god i want that on a bumper sticker
Trying to pilot a ship here. Thanks.
what if he became buddies with the sirens tho
Ohhh, they could form a symbiotic relationship.
Hell, they could even become an hero duo by luring the most violent pirates away from towns they were attacking and saving them.
*OR* they could lure pirates to attack towns then drown them when the hard work is done and split the spoils.
“I ran away when I was about sixteen. I’d had enough…I hated the lot of them: my parents with their pure-blood mania, convinced that to be a Black made you practically royal…my idiot brother, soft enough to believe them…They thought Voldemort had the right idea, they were all for the purification of the wizarding race, getting rid of Muggle-borns and having pure-bloods in charge.”
