Random guess: during the events of Original Sin, Loki was supposed to do something horrible, which would set him on his course to becoming the evil Old Loki that we all know and @#$%. But, instead, this horrible deed, whatever it is, will instead be committed by Thor, thus saving Loki from the fate of coming evil, and simultaneously making Thor unworthy of wielding Mjolnir.

Meet Marvel comics’ new Thor - she’s not what you’d expect! 

Learn more & see some exclusive art from the upcoming comics series


Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THORwritten by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of ThunderOriginal Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).

This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?

“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute - she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”

Is it Aldrif?

faithsoprano asked: Sorry I'm bugging you about stuff again, but I was wondering, do you think you'll ever write more in Cat Among Pigeons? I know you have your hands full right now, I was just wondering if you're altogether done with it or if there's possibly more to come at some point. I love that universe. I mean, if you're done with it, that's fine, obviously, but I certainly wouldn't mind having some hope for more.


No! Yes! No, not done with it, yes, there will be more! Just not soon. (For which I’m really hugely sorry.) And you’re not bugging me at all, hun <3

There’s definitely hope for more <3

Yeeeeey! ^_^ Thank you!

Ok but consider this: Humans are naturally omnivores. Veganism wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for our self awareness. Shaming someone for having the diet of an omnivore makes you the asshole, not them.

Okay, but consider this: the whole “naturally” argument is the same argument that transphobic and homophobic people use to bash those they do not like. “It’s unnatural”, they say. The only way we have gender-reassignment treatment, the only way we’re even considering gay marriage, is because we’re self-aware. In fact, even the existence of marriage itself is only due to our self-awareness, because humans are naturally polygamous. Yet, cheating is a no-no, so is being married to multiple people, in most cultures. 
Our ‘natural’ omnivorous diet means we could also eat human flesh, you know. And why don’t we? Because it’s wrong. Why do we think it’s wrong? Because we’re self-aware. Most of our morals come from self-awareness. If we were to only go with what we’re naturally supposed to do or not do, we would revert to a very primitive state. Which is why it’s only ever brought up when it’s convenient. Most people don’t even understand enough about human digestion to have any sort of argument. They just know we can eat meat, so they use it as reason that we should. 
People act as though when vegans try to get someone to stop eating meat, it’s all about some kind of belief-system spread. No. It’s about not killing animals. They want to save animal lives. But most people would do just about anything to not allow anyone to make them even consider that what they’re doing might be wrong. I generally try to stay out of these fights, but it pains me to see people bring up the ‘natural’ argument, let alone dismiss something just because its only existence is due to our capability to have moral and ethical codes. So, consider this…no, really, consider that killing living creatures for your own pleasure and enjoyment is not a kind or good or right thing to do. Whether or not you think it’s ‘natural’. Because we can do that. We can think and decide and choose. Because, hopefully, we’re self-aware enough to be able to decide against something based on how cruel or evil or wrong it is, not on whether or not it’s ‘natural’. 
Now, I’m not really trying to convert you or anything. I don’t expect you to go veg or whatever. If you choose to eat meat because you don’t care about animal lives and the damage meat-production does to the world or because you just like the taste of meat so much that you’re unwilling to give it up, then that’s that. But for the sake of common sense, please, don’t hide behind what’s ‘natural’. Not just because we don’t actually need meat, but because yes, we are self-aware, and we can make that choice. And when someone is urging you to consider that eating meat might be wrong, they’re counting on your self-awareness, your morals and ethics. You’ll make whatever choice you make, but at the very least, own up to it. Don’t pretend like it’s all about some unbeatable call of your enzymes. The vegan diet is completely viable for humans, so there isn’t some unfightable necessity for animal flesh. There are some, though not many, people that can’t stay healthy on a vegan diet, or find it too difficult. But that is a malfunction, not the default. In fact, most people experience an improvement in health after giving up meat. For the vast majority of the human race, eating meat is a matter of pleasing themselves. It has little to do with what our bodies’ natural digestive settings are.

It's my birthday! I'm so happy! I'm still alive! I was born today! Bring the cake!
Person 2:
Your life sucks! You're in debt, you're broke and single! And you're annoying! Shut up! My life is better than yours anyway.
Wow, Person 2, you're a dick!
4th of July! It's my birthday! Freedom!
You don't have free healthcare, or legal gay marriage, or free education, and most European countries have far superior life! Shut up, America! You're annoying!
Person 2:
I came out to have a good time, and I'm honestly feeling so attacked right now.

Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.

People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings. 

And before that, they were in caves. That’s why there are cave paintings - people stayed inside and doodled instead of socializing.

Daily reminder that conspiracy theorists are always right on Sherlock. Henry Knight and his father, Anderson, Chris Melas, that Death by Twitter woman who was getting coded messages in her e-mail, all the people who swore their family’s remains were tampered with, etc… Conspiracy theorists on the show only ever get details wrong, they’re right about the big picture.

(vegan) I hope your power runs out 

thats fuckin nice and all but the chicken is already in the nuggets. the power going out doesn’t save a chicken. it’s a nugget already. sorry

I believe the logic behind this is that if you don’t eat the nuggets this time, you might eat something else, like fruits or vegetables or pasta or cereal or oat meal or nuts or bread, etc or not eat at all if this was a snack and not an actual meal. Hence, the meal of nuggets is saved for later instead. That does save chickens. Not the ones in the nuggets in question, but the ones in the nuggets you won’t buy to replace the nuggets you didn’t eat this time. 
The more nuggets you eat, the more nuggets you buy, the more chickens are killed to make them. That’s called supply and demand. So, if you don’t eat your nuggets, you don’t buy more, fewer nuggets are made, fewers chickens die. Hence, the wish is entirely valid.
