take care of the world

Pangolin climbing a vine. These guys are family oriented and take care of their babies. They’re also the most poached animal in the world, sold in Asia for their scales, meat, and bones.

do not attempt to seduce the ocean… she is busy… ethereal… taking care of the world… and us? we are small… fleshy… gay…. she understands our feelinsg but cannot return then … we must respect her

Do not take on the world’s battles until the battles from within are fully concurred. Taking care of yourself is the first priority above all.

New Side Comic: Hello World

Well, I was hoping to make this announcement when I had the first update finished, but it looks like it’s going to take me a bit longer than expected, and I didn’t want to wait too long to announce it. So here we are :D

Hello World will be a side comic that functions much like File Not Found: very short, related to the story, and it’ll update from time to time spread out over a few weeks, or even across several chapters.

I think when the first part updates it’ll be very clear what this little comic will be about, if it isn’t already :) You can expect Part 1 to update sometime in the near future, definitely before Chapter Three starts!

Gentle reminder that not every person can be an activist and that is okay. Especially considering our audience is mainly queer people we really want to stress how important it is to take care of yourself. Right now the world feels very loud and every news story is more important than the next but what is more important is keeping yourself safe. And we want to remind you of an older quote we have discussed before from a flyer at New York City Pride in 1990:

“You as an alive and functioning queer person are revolutionary”

And this is vital to keep in mind in the coming years. While activism is important and useful, you are more important. And while it may not seem like it all the time you existing and making a life for yourself is a form of revolution. The forces we are to face want you unhappy at best, and non-existent at worst. So rebellion can come in the form of being happy and existing as loudly as you can. So yes, picket if you can, sign petitions, do all you can. But remember when there is nothing left you have yourself and being yourself in times such as these is revolutionary.   

This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, but with a:

Grammar, Stanley.”

  • People: I can't believe Damien's not a Slytherin!
  • Me: What? Have you ever met a LESS ambitious person? He could do literally anything he wanted to the world. He could start or end wars. He could restructure the government. He could end hunger and poverty. He could appoint himself king of everything. And what does he do? He skips lines and makes people tell him their secrets!

All I want is for Draco Malfoy to one day look back on his life and think… 

‘All was well’.

Your health should be the absolute top priority. Without it, where would you be now? How would you be able to experience all of the many beautiful sights, tastes and songs of the world? Always take care of yourself, both mentally and physically.

Being Tony Stark’s Daughter would include...

So this is my first kind of “would include” headcanon so let’s see if I do this right…it’s kinda long and i have no idea id this is what it woild be like so I just went for it xD

Tony Stark / Headcanon Masterlists


  • Actually turning out okay
  • Being the result of an old girlfriend– not really sure what happened to her. Tony never talked about her, you’re his main priority now. 
  • Not many people thought Tony would be able to handle a child, let alone one of the opposite sex
  • But he can actually be really chill
  • As a child he spoiled you so much, but he’s learned to calm down over the years
  • But when you want something you ask for it and he does the “on a scale of one to this will kill you if i don’t buy it” how badly do you need it?” but he usually almost always buys what you want. because stark.
  • You were exposed to the party scene very early on. The press was always interested in hearing from the perspective of Tony’s daughter
  • Pepper being your mother figure and her loving you even if you aren’t her own
  • You and Pepper hanging out when Tony is busy
  • She loves you so much
  • Tony calls a press conference? Pepper is there to watch after you. Tony has to save the world with the Avengers? Pepper keeps you in her sight to make sure you are okay
  • Oh man when he went missing in 2008, Pepper took you in because you felt safest with her without your father around
  • You were the most worried when he went missingIt was the worst time of your life, hearing your father was missing and presumed dead
  • Pepper came into the house one day “(Y/N)! HE’S BEEN FOUND! TONY IS ALIVE!”
  • Bursting into tears so quickly
  • Going with Pepper to see him when he arrived back and losing it even more when you actually got to hug your dad for what felt like the first time in forever
  • Tony being so relieved he got to hold you again, he didn’t know if it would ever happen
  • You basically forced him to tell you how he escaped meaning you learned so quickly about the Iron Man project
  • Spending so much time in the labs either just keeping company or helping
  • Trying to make your own AI since Tony has JARVIS why not try to make one yourself
  • Not actually doing too bad
  • Vacations were the shit because you could just hop on a private plane with your father and go wherever was decided
  • You basically forced him to tell you how he escaped meaning you learned so quickly about the Iron Man project
  • You wanting to build your own Iron Daughter suit but Tony freaking out that it’s too dangerous for you
  • “Then why do you do it? You’re my dad! It looks like so much fun!”
  • “It comes with a lot of responsibility, (Y/N), it’s not a toy.”
  • “So? I want to be like you! I look up to you and I want to do the things you do. I want to protect the world too, I can take care of myself.”
  • “I know you can…but I can’t risk it. I can’t risk losing you.”
  • And then you realize how much your father actually cares for you and you dropped the whole suit thing
  • [after the avengers becomes a thing] Having many ideas that you share with the science bros™
  • Bruce loves you because you can annoy Tony to death
  • Always pulling the “Steve would let me do that…” card to get Tony to let you do things
  • Meeting Peter and tony either loving him or “don’t touch my daughter, Peter Parker.”
  • The Avengers really is just one big family and they love you too
  • Never wanting the Accords to become a thing. Luckily, your young mind was able to talk sense into everyone and help them realize they’re being stupid the avengers can’t split up. someone go save the old russian soldier and everyone hug it out.
  • Tony and Steve still argue about everything, though, there is no getting out of that
  • “How do you deal with him?” Natasha asks you almost daily about your father
  • But there will always be the kind of sarcastic-loving-family relationship. 
  • Basically you are the glue for Pepper and Tony’s relationship and even though they took a break when the Accords stuff was happening, they got back together and you couldn’t be more happy
  • thats all ive got right now so xD

dragonsateyourtoast  asked:

A new student wears no iron or silver. She ignores instructions to do so. She seems bold as brass, limping around at night with not a single defense or care in the world. But the Gentry do not take advantage of this; instead they actually steer clear of her, as if she were wearing more iron than they could stand to see. When someone finally gathers the courage to ask her about it, she laughs. "I have arthritis," she says, smiling. "I've had four joints replaced."

SO METAL
