Hi! I love your blog and I have a very stupid question but can I ship BuckyNat like crazy even if I didn't read the comics? 🙈 And what should I read to catch up? Thanks a lot and your blog is amazing

of course! comics aren’t a prerequisite (tho they do make it a hell of a lot easier since the mcu is so bad at giving us anything but scraps) 

i highly recommend using @fuckyeahbuckynatasha​‘s rec lists for comics! it’s a solid list with most if not all of the buckynat stuff. they also have a getting started with comic book page if you’re new and are confused about stuff

For the fam: I need a new sci-fi/action/adventure book series to read. Any suggestions?

Sasuke:” I….I don’t really read a lot of books.”

Madara: “You…Culture murderer. Have you read The Giver series
 it about a future society that has eliminated discord, converting everyone to “Sameness.” In three linked stories, Jonas, destined to hold memories of the time before Sameness; Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg; and healer Matty must discover the truth about their society and restore emotion, meaning and balance to their world.

Sasuke: “sounds stupid. Why don’t I send you one of my fanfictions.”  

Shisui: “Pfffffff~  Both your fanfictions and The Givers are stupid. You should read The Outsiders by S.E. HintonS.E. Hinton was just 16 years old when she wrote this novel about kids getting caught up in class struggles. Ponyboy is a greaser, from the wrong side of the tracks; he runs afoul of the upper-class Socs, leading to an epic rumble between the two gangs.” 

Sasuke:”I actually read that, that book is amazing!” 

Obito: “Hold up bitches, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher is amazing. It is about this Clay Jenkins,a high school student, that  receives a box in the mail containing 13 cassette tapes recorded by his classmate Hannah, who committed suicide, he spends a bewildering and heartbreaking night crisscrossing their town, listening to Hannah’s voice recount the events leading up to her death.

Sasuke: “Wait you can read?”

Madara: “Wow…The shit I don’t know about Obito.” 

Itachi-nii: “Let the expert talk alright. You should give Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson a try. It about Melinda who got raped at a party. She  is unable to tell angry partygoers why she called the police. Eventually stops speaking all together. 

Izuna: “….I don’t even read a textbook….How come you guys read for fun?!”

Sasuke: “Yeah…What is wrong with you guys? The moment they see the word ‘book’ they start saying all these titles and shit..”

What got Oliver into archaeology?

A love of learning, honestly. He’s a very scholarly type and he’s one of those guys who is happier with a new book he’s never read than anything else. He’s big into anthropology as well, but primarily he enjoys the geographical aspect of it, digging into the dirt, pulling up old artifacts, learning about people who lived centuries before he did.


Warm drinks. Fuzzy socks. Rain on the roof. The smell of fresh cookies. Re reading your favourite book. Discovering new songs. Internet friends. Crying of laughter and happiness. The feeling of anticipation before the artist enters the stage. Long night chats where everything seems so much more real. Finding the perfect volume of music. Fresh sheets. Knowing a song so well you don’t have to think about the lyrics. Strawberry and cream tea. Sunlight in the trees. Silence. Being in a new city. Messy buns and baggy tshirts. Letting go of things that hurt. The moment of realisation that it will be okay. Contentment.

When the realization that The Trials of Apollo comes out in just THREE DAYS hits
