Hello :) I was wondering if you could maybe give me a reading list for Captain Marvel? I really want to start reading about her but I dont no where to start. Thankyou. Love your blog x

If you’re extremely invested and want to start right at the beginning then read Captain Marvel Vol 1 (1969) issue #18 which is her origin story, followed by Ms Marvel Vol 1 (1977). Then read Uncanny X-Men Vol 1 (1982) issue #164 which features Carol’s first appearance in her Binary form. Then read ‘New Avengers’ Vol 2 (2006) which really sets her up to be Marvel’s primary female superhero. Then read ‘Civil War’ (2006) where she plays a major role and that leads directly into Ms Marvel Vol 2 (2006).

However, I would just start at Captain Marvel Vol 7 (2012). It gives a nice tidy flashback of her origin, explains her binary power, and is where she officially becomes Captain Marvel. This is essential reading and it’s a great jumping on point. 

After that definitely read Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 (2013) issues #15 onwards, Captain Marvel Vol 8 (2014), A-Force Vol 1 (2015), Captain Marvel and the Carol Corps (2015), Ultimates Vol 1 (2015), Captain Marvel Vol 9 (2016), A-Force Vol 2 (2016), Ultimates Vol 2 (2016), and then The Mighty Captain Marvel (2017) which is currently at issue #4 and then you’re all caught up. 

Note - Skip ‘Civil War 2′ (2016) as the writer just messes up her character completely.

Transiting Mars enters Cancer

June 4 - July 20, 2017

Mars is in its fall in the sign Cancer. As usual, I’ll let astrologer Isabel Hickey explain why: “Mars in Cancer is shorn of strength where aggressiveness and combativeness are concerned. They are anemic psychologically as well as physically. They would rather run than fight and need to learn to face life with courage. Running away from conflict does not erase it. It is the postponement of an issue that must be faced later.” Issie goes on to assert that a person with this natal placement may have a “very sensitive stomach” and should (1) avoid acidic foods, and (2) never eat when upset or tired.

Reading the above, you may think, “How is being LESS aggressive and combative a BAD thing?” Certainly we all know some very abrasive people whose belligerence could stand to be diminished. And Issie seems to have forgotten that “he who fights and runs away will live to fight another day.” Especially in 2017, we need all the patience and reluctance to be violent that we can get.

Problem is, Mars is supposed to fight, not bake cookies. Cancer will influence Mars to fight based on its feelings, and feelings change. This placement, in a kind of backhanded manner, may teach Mars some much needed patience. Certainly our faith will be tested. Not fighting fairly may also happen. All the cardinal signs are manipulative, and Mars in Cancer may manipulate people/things to keep from having to dirty its hands with actual fisticuffs.

The aspects Mars will make during the next seven or so weeks are a mixed bag. The nice ones are really nice, but the challenges are from Juno, Jupiter, and heavy hitters Uranus, Pluto, and Eris. Those aspects all have the potential to be violent. I’m wondering, though, whether or not much of the indicated stress may not come from the realization that the other guy, the Enemy, isn’t that much different from ourselves. We all, at heart, just want some safe places to just Be.

More practical uses of Mars through Cancer might involve home improvement projects. Think of it as strengthening the fortifications. We don’t have much of an urge to go explore further than our own backyards, so let’s use this constructively and spruce up the old homesteads.

Celebrities with Mars in Cancer:
Keanu Reeves, Alan Rickman, Lana Del Rey, Mozart, Robin Williams, Audrey Hepburn, Pablo Picasso, Halle Berry, Isabelle Adjani, Roger Federer, Nostradamus, Pink, Richard Gere, Shakespeare, Warren Buffett, Stephen King, John Mayer, Reese Witherspoon, Marie Antoinette, Jensen Ackles, Tom Hardy, Alanis Morissette, Michael Phelps, Al Capone, Julius Caesar, Chris Hemsworth

Friday, June 9, Venus/Taurus sextile Mars/Cancer, 3:18

Here is the ONE instance of Mars having a flowing aspect without a challenging aspect complicating it! Fecundity, sexiness, hours and hours of the tenderest love-making, etc. If Mars is to learn something from this, it could be the efficacy of patience and gentle persistence in getting what it wants.

Planets/Points affected lie between 2:18 and 4:18 of the yin signs Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces.

Friday, June 23, Juno Rx/Capricorn opposite Mars/Cancer, 12:47;
Saturday, June 24, Jupiter/Libra square Mars/Cancer, 13:34;
Sunday, June 25, Neptune Rx/Pisces trine Mars/Cancer, 14:14

The main issue here is the opposition between Mars/Cancer and Juno Rx/Capricorn. It’s a potential “break-up” aspect - with what, depends on which houses the opposition occupies in your chart. What Jupiter and Neptune offer are different choices of response. Jupiter in Libra (newly direct) puts on the pressure to “do” one or the other, while Neptune in Pisces (newly retrograde) makes it more difficult to see clearly what’s really going on. Mutual faith between partners is the goal.

Planets/Points affected lie between 11:47 and 15:14 of the signs Aries*, Taurus, Cancer*, Virgo, Libra*, Scorpio, Capricorn*, and Pisces*; and between 26:47 and 29:35 of the fixed signs Taurus*, Leo*, Scorpio*, and Aquarius*.

Wednesday, June 28, Mercury/Cancer conjunct Mars/Cancer, 15:54

Mars becomes a little more articulate with Mercury. It’s easier to discuss how our feelings have affected our behavior. Provided “things” don’t get too whiny, there are possibilities for some true emotional communication. We can show someone how we feel (for good or for ill). This also initiates a time when Mars is more liable to “lash out.”

Planets/Points affected lie between 14:54 and 16:54 of the signs Aries*, Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Libra*, Scorpio, Capricorn*, and Pisces.

Sunday, July 2, Pluto Rx/Capricorn opposite Mars/Cancer, 18:18

As Mars goes through the second half of Cancer, the aspects become very challenging and dangerous. This opposition is a confrontation with powerful authority; it could manifest as almost a David and Goliath situation. It’s particularly troubling because of the US Independence Day holiday on July 4, and we have all manner of heavily-armed nuts here.

Planets/Points affected lie between 17:18 and 19:18 of the signs Aries*, Taurus, Cancer*, Virgo, Libra*, Scorpio, Capricorn*, and Pisces.

Monday, July 10, Eris/Aries square Mars/Cancer, 23:51

Being angry about feeling “Othered” is strong today. It’s done by both sides, you know, with the “Left” sneering at the rubes in “Flyover Country” while the “Right” sneers at the eggheads on the coasts. It’s going to take infinite patience and time to address this properly - i.e., with a view toward healing - as part of this process, we should look inward to discover the causes of the “othering” we do ourselves.

Planets/Points affected lie between 22:51 and 24:51 of the cardinal signs Aries*, Cancer*, Libra*, and Capricorn*; and between 7:51 and 9:51 of the mutable signs Gemini*, Virgo*, Sagittarius*, and Pisces*.

Monday, July 17, Uranus/Aries square Mars/Cancer, 28:25;
Tuesday, July 18, Chiron Rx/Pisces trine Mars/Cancer, 28:44

The square from Uranus is, of course, another potentially violent aspect. Our inner toddlers are angry - we want what we want, right now. Some issue from late February (when the two were conjunct) manifests itself, and we lash out with all our might. Yet there’s the trine from Chiron - it could mean we heal the damage caused by the square, but it could also be a reward for exercising self-control and not damaging anything in the first place. We can do it.

Planets/Points affected lie between 27:25 and 29:44 of the signs Aries*, Taurus, Cancer*, Virgo, Libra*, Scorpio, Capricorn*, and Pisces; and between 12:25 and 14:25 of the mutable signs Gemini*, Virgo*, Sagittarius*, and Pisces*.

VMHQ Character Week: Mom’s Edition

Jeff Ratner, here.  Employee of the Neptune Grand, and all around seeker-of-truth.  I will NOT be your VMHQ Character of the Week - Lord knows, I have enough to do trying to retrieve salt shakers from the Penthouse suite - but when I overheard the librarians talking about dedicating the week to the mothers of Neptune, I couldn’t keep my mouth shut.  

Here’s a warning for VMHQ - DON’T DO IT!  

We, at the Neptune Grand are still skimming pearls and Percocets from the pool after this morning's…debacle.   

If the editors of the Neptune Register had bothered to ask me, I could have warned them that bringing together Lianne Mars, Celeste Kane, Lynn Echolls, and Alicia Fennel for their annual Mothers Day Issue was a recipe for disaster.  

But of course they didn’t.  All they see when they look at me is a lowly bellhop. Unwise, on their part. 

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men (or in this case, women)? JEFF RATNER knows.

Some of us don’t have trust funds, so I signed-up for overtime to help pay my college tuition.  Just my luck, they assigned me to pour drinks and buss tables on the hotel restaurant’s patio.  

To put it nicely, these women are real pieces of work.

Allow me to offer you a small glimpse of what I had to deal with as I refilled their Bellinis (over and over again):

Lianne Mars:  What do you mean, I’m not the Character of the Week for Mother’s Day?  

Celeste Kane: The librarians mentioned some drivel about comparing and contrasting the mothers of Neptune.  Personally, I don’t think I should have to share.  I was in more episodes than the rest of you.  I was in the movie!

LM:  As the woman who raised and shaped the moral character of Veronica Mars, shouldn’t I get top billing?  The show isn’t titled, ‘Duncan Kane’, after all.

CK: Clearly, from the overall lack of breeding and manners.    

Alicia Fennel:  Honestly, do you guys really think you’re entitled to be featured for Mother’s Day? That might require you do some…I don’t, know, mothering?  

CK:  I’m an excellent mother.  Duncan’s many accomplishments are proof of that.  And shouldn’t you be nicer to me?  My husband signs your paychecks.  

LM:  I may not have always done the best by Veronica, but I’m her real mother, and she knows I love her.

Has-been B-Lister, Lynn Echolls beckoned me over,  waving her hand haughtily at a tray of appetizers.  

Lynn Echolls: Excuse me!  How many carbs are in these?  Swimsuit season is just around the corner.  Also, I need a refill.  

Kindly, I refrained from pointing out the carbs in her sugary cocktail, and what do I look like? Nutritionist on call?

I was saved from having to answer by the sudden appearance of Rose Manning on the patio. She didn’t stay long.  Catching sight of the other women, she hissed “Fornicators!” turned on her heel and departed.

CK:  Well, that was uncalled for.  

LE:  Somebody isn’t getting any at home.  

LM: Deborah Hauser’s hairdresser’s sister goes to the Manning’s church, and apparently, they’re sleeping in twin beds these days.  

CK:  I have to wonder what she’s doing at a hotel in the middle of the day.  


In a rare moment of solidarity, the women toasted Mrs. Manning, tipped back their glasses, and returned to their squabbling.  

 LE:  Logan is my pride and joy, and–

 AF:  And what a fine example you’ve set.  He organized Bum Fights.

 LE:  He’s just spirited.  And anyway, kids misbehave.  

 CK:  Speak for yourself.  Duncan is a model child.

 AF: Misbehave?  Yes.  Getting charged with murder repeatedly?  No.  

 LE:  Model child?  Duncan was also suspected of murder.  

 LM: Suspected?  He contracted a hit.  Not to mention, you know, kidnapping.  

 CK: There’s no proof, and if you make one more slanderous accusation like that, I’ll sue.


Allow me to break from this accounting to remind you, the followers of VMHQ, that the word 'allegedly’ works wonders in avoiding frivolous lawsuits.  

So go ahead, analyze away.  In fact, I look forward to reading your meta and head-canons about the Hot Messes Mothers of Neptune.  

AF:  Of course, certain things would become public record if you went the legal route.  The press doesn’t care about the results, as long as they can air the dirty laundry.  

CK: You’re one to give mothering advice.

LM:  Yeah, wasn’t Waldo suspected of a hit-and-run? Guess my husband’s good influence didn’t rub off on him.

AF:  Are you really going there?  My son’s name is WALLACE, and he was innocent.  

LM:  Didn’t I say Wallace?

CK:  Sure you did.  Have another drink while you’re at it.


You know who needs a drink after all of this?  This guy.  

You know who doesn’t?  Lianne Mars.  I got a peek inside her handbag while I was refilling her glass, and let’s just say, it contains the entire mini-bar contents of room 188, as well as the key card.  

In fact, didn’t I see Mr. Kane heading up to that room last night?  

 LE:  Logan was innocent, too, you know.  Every single time!  

 AE:  You mean the kid who was bashing a car with a tire iron the first time Wallace met him?  

 LE (sniffing):  Don’t pretend to be some paragon of motherhood.  Didn’t you lie to your son?  Telling him for an entire decade that his father was dead?

 AF:  I did that in the name of protecting him.  Maybe you should take a page from my book and try it yourself sometime?


At this point, I escaped for a quick smoke break.  I don’t actually smoke, but I considered taking up the habit.  Or cyanide.

When I returned, the women were still going at it.

CK: Well, at least Duncan is smart. Your son is only getting into college because he can dribble.  

AF (shrugging):  Mine dribbles.  Yours drools. What can you do?

LM:  She’s not wrong.  Have you considered getting him checked out?  You know, medically?

Originally posted by wyatted

CK:  HOW DARE YOU!  Where was this concern when you allowed Veronica to date him for a year, knowing they could be siblings?  One mistake, and imagine the children they could’ve produced.  If I hadn’t intervened, of course.

LM: Intervened by telling Duncan the truth? Or by having my daughter followed, and mailing me threatening photos?  

CK:  I do what’s necessary to protect my family, no matter how unpleasant. You, on the other hand, abandoned your daughter at the first sign of hardship.  

LM:  Well, at least I didn’t ice down her corpse.  


Even the frosty Mrs. Kane has a breaking point, and this, apparently, was it. She grabbed the nearest object, which happened to be Lynn Echolls’ giant statement bag, and began swinging it at Lianne Mars.  

Ms. Mars knocked back her chair and stood. She lifted her arms to protect herself, but was forced to retreat.  Celeste Kane beat back her rival, and Lynn Echolls trailed after them, gathering her possessions and whining.   

LE:  My Prada flask!  
LE:  My wallet!
LE:  My Blackberry!

Backed up against the pool, Lianne Mars attempted to fight back, but she was no match for the enraged Mrs. Kane.  

I’m sure you can predict what happened next.  

Just as Lynn Echolls was trying to wrench her handbag from the hands of Celeste Kane, Lianne Mars lost her balance.  She grabbed for the first thing available (Mrs. Kane’s pearl necklace, for the curious).  

Three obnoxious women hit the water with a SPLASH. Moments later, they surfaced, sputtering and shrieking.

LE:  MY PILLS!   
LE:  THEY’RE PRESCRIBED!  

Alicia Fennel materialized at my side, speaking the words of my heart.

 AF: Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch.

She shook her head in disgust, then handed me her glass, toed off her shoes, and ran towards the water yelling “CANNONBALL!" 

Right about then, was when the photographers from the Neptune Register arrived, followed by half the sheriff’s department.  

So anyway, if you’re still here, Mothers of Neptune week runs from May 15th through May 21st.    Post your gifs, your fanart, your fanvids.  Post your meta - about a single character, all of the characters, comparing/contrasting, nature vs. nurture, you get the idea.   

This is your opportunity to tell the world who these women really are - not just the shiny packages they present to the world.  Don’t let me down!  

Never Again- Jimmy x Reader

request: anyfandomwriter
Can you make one with Jimmy Darling where we are dating all of a sudden we have a stupid fight and we get captured by that clown and Dandy the other one tries to do things to me and Jimmy cant take it anymore and in some way free’s himself and fights with him and we get back to the circus and we make up with alot of fluff? :)


“Hey babe,”  Jimmy Darling, your longtime boyfriend, breathes in your ear.  You are frying some eggs and the warm smell coming off of them combined with the feel of Jimmy’s hands on your hips makes you feel like you have never been more at home.

“Come on! Not now.  Breakfast is ready..”  You whine, bumping him lightly with your hip which he grabs to pull you closer.  He leans down to your neck and begins to kiss and suck it gently, then a little rougher before rasping in your ear, “Food can wait-”  Gripping you tight around the waist Jimmy lifts you off of your feet causing your back to arch, you expel a moan.  That only makes matters worse because Jimmy adores making you moan.  He flops back on the creaking bed and you twist around so you are against his firm chest.  You are going to get him back, you ease up his shirt and blow a raspberry on his soft, supple tummy.  Jimmy laughs heartily and you feel the vibrations and laugh yourself.  “Come here,” he growls and tugs you up to his lush pink lips by your armpits.

You are pulled out of your adorable love fest by three short raps at the door.  Jimmy groans and gently lifts you off of him, he drags his feet all the way to the door then opens it and leans lazily in the doorframe.  Eve, one of your friends, stands outside your trailer.  “Hey Jimmy, so for tomorrow night are we going to use the yellow or orange based gel on the spotlight?”  

You all lived at a freakshow and worked in the show.  You and Jimmy both grew up in the show, he had “lobster hands”, fused hands, and you were an acrobat.  Ms Elsa Mars took you under her wing and you’d faithfully been in her show ever since.

At the mention of tomorrow night, the glowing excitement from your heated kissing session fades, confusion and disbelief take its place.  “Uh, I don’t know, we’ll have to figure it out tomorrow,”  Jimmy contemplates, running a large claw through the golden blond curl on his forehead.  Eve agrees and nods to you, “Hey Y/N, see you later,” and ducks her head so she can exit the trailer, she is incredibly tall, her nickname being “Amazon Eve”.

You clear your throat and rise to your feet, resting a slender hand on your hip, which you jut out sassily.  You mean business.  “Jimmy.  We were going to the diner and then to see a picture tomorrow night..”  You raise a perfectly sculpted eyebrow and look at him through squinted eyes.  No matter how much attitude you feign, Jimmy knows you are extremely sensitive, and your voice gives away how hurt you are.

“Look, sorry babe.  Whatever, let’s just do it another night?”  He reaches for you, arms outstretched but only grasps the air because you jerk back.  “WHATEVER??? Really? Do I even matter to you?”  You cry out in disbelief, throwing your hands down and gripping at your poodle skirt in distress.  Jimmy sighs frustratedly and turns his back on you, “God, you are so high maintenance.”  You gasp at the ridiculousness of that statement.  “Yes, I am crazy for wanting you to keep your word when you make a plan with me.”  You mimic sarcastically.  “You are being ridiculous.”  He calls and slams on the counter.

That hurt.  He never says such hurtful things, you know he’s stressed right now but that doesn’t mean he can treat you badly.  You choke back a sob and sprint out of the trailer desperately not wanting him to see you cry.  You run as fast as your bare feet will take you, they slap the wet grass as you enter the field away from the campground.  Tears streak your face and the cold wind whips your long Y/H/C hair all around.  You stop to catch your breath and clear your thoughts, and you hear Jimmy calling for you, begging you to come back.  You just sit there in silence and allow the tears to fall.  You realize how dark it is now and you hear a rustling behind you.  You whip around and get cut off before you can emit a blood curdling scream.  A terrifying clown faces you with a mask over the bottom half of his face and dirt-caked clothes splattered with a red color that you pray is not blood.  He has your mouth covered and suddenly he jerks a knife to your throat.  You don’t know what to do so when he shoves you and you whimper he puts the knife closer to your neck and you follow him blind with fear.

Petrified, he leads you into a broken down shed.  There is a ripped screen door that he kicks in violently.  He shoves you into the dark room where you are caught by two strong hands.  The clown leaves immediately.  “Hello darling,” A smooth, sinister, voice purrs in your ear.  A shiver of fear trickles from the crown of your head to your feet.  Dandy.  The creepy rich boy who was obsessed with the freakshow.  He grips your delicate upper arms viciously and pushes you back into a creaky wooden rocking chair.  The chipped wood scrapes your skin and you try to sit up but Dandy brandishes a gun.

After tying your wrists to the chair, feet bound together, and gagging you with a rag he reclines in a chair opposite you, crossing his legs in a grandiose fashion. “And now we wait.”  He says with a sly smile.  You choke on the rag trying to cry out.  Tears leak down and soak the rag, Jimmy, you ached for Jimmy.

As though the universe was playing some sadistic joke on you, you got your wish.  Jimmy was shoved through the door then by the clown.  When he saw you he tried to make a break for you but Dandy aimed the gun at your head and whispered, “Move… and see what happens.”  Jimmy looked at you with heartache in his eyes, and then at Dandy with murderous rage.  “Y/N,”  Jimmy whispers, voice packed with emotions, sadness, love, anger at Dandy. 

“Gag him.” Dandy calls absentmindedly waving a hand, not moving his eyes from you.  Jimmy thrashes but gets gagged and his hands tied and thrown in a metal cage in the corner which the clown locks promptly.  “So, I want to torture you.  I want to hear you scream out in pain and feel your warm crimson blood run on my hands.”  Dandy circles your chair and when he is back in front of you he runs the flat side of the knife down your forehead, pausing on your nose and then tapping it playfully, psychotically.  

Jimmy bangs on the cage desperately and Dandy shrugs it off as though he isn’t there.  “However, maybe I’ll keep you.  I’ll hold you as my pet and have you do whatever I want, torture you enough that you live, just so I can torture you again.”  You shake in your bindings and try to scream at him angrily, this changes his attitude in an instant.  He looks at you in absolute rage and draws his knife across your collarbone.  Not doing any real damage but scaring you out of your mind.

This drove Jimmy over the edge, somehow he got his handles undone and he was slamming out of that cage.  He ripped the gag out of his mouth and grabbed a piece of plywood, knocking out the clown in one brutal swing.  And then he’s on Dandy, he was out in one punch but Jimmy beats him bloody.  You cry out for him to stop and he looks at you, snapping out of the rage.  He unties you and holds you close to him.  You have your face in his slightly sweaty chest and you breathe in his scent.  Safety is found encircled in his arms.

“Oh baby, oh, are you alright,”  He nervously caresses your face and then gingerly touches your collarbone.  “It’s hardly a scrape, it’s okay,”  You assure him breathlessly.  “We better get out of here before they come to,”  You pull him, knowing if you don’t get out now, Jimmy may kill them.  He looks at you and grabs your hand and you two are off, flying through the woods back to the campground.

Jimmy carries you to the trailer once it is in view.  He sets you down on the beat up maroon couch in the dim living space and sprints into the bathroom.  When he comes back he looks at you sadly, “This is going to sting,” You nod and allow him to clean the cut with alcohol and then put a large bandage on it.

Once all of the mending is done Jimmy hangs his head sheepishly.  Slowly he looks back up at you, deep eyes swimming with tears, “I love you.  I love you and I’m sorry.  You’re right, I shouldn’t have forgotten about our date.  You matter more than anything.  I’m not missing that date for the world.  Never again.  I never ever want to hurt you like that again.”  You can’t answer, you just cry out a huff of relief and nod vigorously.

Your and Jimmy’s teary eyes meet in a remarkable show of love and he slowly leans his forehead down to yours, never breaking eye contact.  Carefully he joins his plump lips to yours and you share a sweet loving embrace.  He lifts you off the couch and strides to the bed, lowering you down and climbing in next to you.  You snuggle into the crook of his neck and he wraps you in his strong secure arms.

You are safe.
