if you can look at these and not fall in love with her you actually have no soul

BLACK WIDOW FANS READ THIS SRSLY

If you’re kinda feeling a gap in your soul that needs to be filled with Romanoff-esque characters, I implore you to read the Skulduggery Pleasant series. There is a character almost exactly like her named Tanith Low, a 93 year old woman from London who looks like 23, is essentially a ninja, and has an incredibly similar backstory. (And unlike Nat, Tanith gets her own spin off book and it’s fantastic)

Other amazing characters are; 

Valkyrie Cain; a 12 year old girl who gets thrown into a magical world and solves mysteries with the titular character (a talking skeleton who can control the elements)

China Sorrows; A badass collecter of information who has some enchantment that causes you to fall in love with her the moment you see her

Vaurien Scapegrace; The self proclaimed “killer supreme, who turns murder into an art form” despite never having actually succeeded at killing someone

Billy-Ray Sanguine; A texan man who can travel through solid objects and is just hilarious


SERIOUSLY GUYS THESE BOOKS ARE AMAZING AND DARK BUT ALSO HILARIOUSLY WITTY AND YOU WILL LOVE EVERY CHARACTER AND IT’S SO GOOD OH MY GOD
