medal-of-valour

i hope sokka lived a happy and fulfilling life that he was able to share with lots of generations. i hope he was able to learn lots about the world and space and science. i hope he was able to implement all the things he wanted to as a councilman and i hope he felt good about helping nonbender kids feel a part of the community. i hope he kept a strong relationship with katara, toph, zuko, aang, hakoda and suki. i hope that he got a medal of valour or something alongside the gaang and i hope his efforts to create a better community weren’t ignored because he deserved all of that

“If the word for you is butch, remember, your history is one of strength and survival, and it is largely silent. Do not hide this word under your tongue. Do not whisper it or sweep it under the basement stairs. Let it fill up your chest and widen your shoulders. Wear it like a sleeve tattoo, like a medal of valour.

Learn to recognize other butches for what they really are: your people. Your brothers or your sisters. Both are just words that mean family. Other butches are not your competition, they are your comrades. Be there when they need you. Go fishing together. Help each other move. Polish your rims or your chrome or your boots together. See these acts for what they really are: solidarity.”

-Ivan Coyote, A Butch Roadmap

“I would like to present you with this Medal of Valour. And if you look closely on the back, there’s a number. As a more concrete gesture of our gratitude, we’d like to offer you… let’s call it a favour. The nature of it is your choice. Just tell the operator, ‘oxfords not brogues’, and then I’ll know it’s you.”

Harry was presenting the medal and speaking on behalf of Kingsman, but I have no doubt in my mind that the ‘oxfords not brogues’ password was a direct hotline to Harry himself. When the password is activated, Harry will immediately get the alert personally from the operator.

“This one’s yours, Galahad.”

OKAY TUMBLR, EVERYBODY SIT THE FRICK DOWN BECAUSE IT’S TIME FOR ME TO TELL YOU A THING.

THIS BADASS LADY’S NAME IS MADAME POMPADOUR, AND SHE WAS METAL. AS. FUCK. FEMINIST. ICON. LET ME TELL YOU WHY.

FIRSTLY, SHE WAS MISTRESS TO THE KING OF ENGLAND (LATER MARRIED), BUT EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT SHE WAS A LESBIAN, AND HAD MANY PASSIONATE LETTERS BETWEEN HER AND HER LOVERS, WHICH INCLUDED QUEEN ELIZABETH I AND ANTOINE MARIONETTE. THAT’S RIGHT. THE QUEEN OF FRANCE. 

SHE WAS A BRILLIANT INVENTOR, AND INVENTED THE FORCEPS, STILL USED IN CHILDBIRTH TODAY

ONE DAY WHEN SHE WAS 19, A MAN TRIED TO RAPE HER. NOT ONLY DID SHE SUE HIM FOR PROPERTY DAMAGES, SHE STABBED HIM IN THE EAR WITH A FORCEPS. UPON HEARING THIS, THE KING AWARDED HER A MEDAL OF VALOUR AND UTTERED A FAMOUS QUOTE: “SHE CERTAINLY IS A GREAT QUEEN, AND WERE SHE ONLY A CATHOLIC SHE WOULD BE OUR DEARLY BELOVED.” 

THAT’S RIGHT. SHE WASN’T CATHOLIC.

IN CONCLUSION, MADAME POMPADOUR DON’T GIVE NO FUCKS
