[ so, as some of you may or may not know, my aunt used to work for marvel as a writer back in the day (idk if she was ever properly credited on everything she worked on—u kno how things are for women, and they used to be worse). but like she has a huge spider-man poster in her office signed by stan lee with the inscription “sheryl—i always did like people who could be bought” because he wanted to go one way with a character and she wanted to go another and she told him she would do what he wanted if he signed something for her.
i’m having dinner with her tonight and she just keeps dropping names of people in the industry (not remender or brubaker or anything but, like, buzz dixon is one she kept mentioning)
and i’m like
"jesus christ do u realize how much envy i’m containing right now" ]
