them as nerds is my favorite thing ever

liveblogsupdatingdaily  asked:

If you like so much to read (watch movies) with strong woman protagonist, I recommend to read a webcomic (not based on true story, of course, but it has a great female protagonist and is all over cool -and not only one woman, but a lot of female characters there are pretty strong and well written), a steampunk fantasy webcomic (if you like this genre) called Girl Genius, written by Phil and Katja Foglio. Its free to read and you can find it on its website. Great stuff.


It’s like my favorite thing. I hooked my ex-roommate on it just so I could fansqueal with him. I would come up with fan theories and stuff - I was convinced for the longest time that the invisibility device they use to escape from Castle Wulfenbach in volume two was actually the time machine, but that appears to not be the case. My last two phones have been named Otilia and Castle Heterodyne. I reread “opera week” (Wulfenbach vs the circus) on like a weekly basis. I’ve been fiendishly devouring thrice-weekly updates for well over 10 years.

So yeah. Girl Genius is the business.

(weirdly enough, I believe my parents knew the Foglios in passing - my folks were fairly well-established Kentucky SCA/con folk in the 80s, and I remember them mentioning the Foglios once or twice, back when they were doing Myth Adventures, What’s New, and Buck Godot. I also recall my dad mentioning that my brother and I made some sort of cameo appearance in one of Richard and Wendy Pini’s works, but I’ve never been able to figure out which one. This may have been my overactive childhood imagination misinterpreting his words though.)

(this may have been the hardest I’ve ever publicly nerded out.)

Rin is such a good parent, that when his kids ask about sex, depending on their age, he is honest with them in different ways. Whilst young, Usamaro asked where babies come from. Rin told them they come from a mother or carrier. They grow inside where it is safe and they grow until they are ready to be outside. As Usamaro (and possibly his other kids/friends kids) grew older, he'd tell them more, and did his best to be honest with them. He also never let it get awkward.

Listen, this is my favorite headcanon ever. Rin and Yukio being hilariously nonchalant about sex, feminine products, and puberty. So of course, Rin never lets such things become awkward because Fujimoto never did either (no matter how much Rin squirmed at first when the topic first came up when he was preteen.)

Which one is nerdier in your opinion between Lena and Winn?

😱😱 Why does this question give me images of Lena and Winn participating in bot wars to figure out which of them is the nerdiest?? Whyyyy is this something I desperately need in my life and will never get!? My brotp!

Oh gosh I couldn’t possibly choose! At this point, we are still learning so much about the types of things Lena knows. It is clear she is a genius. I mean her really nerdy geek speak moments in 2x18 and 2x20? Enough said. And she hacked a lock with a tiara. When would your favorite nerd ever??

Winn, on the other hand, blows my mind when it comes to tech. Life goals to be honest. Unattainable for me anyway. Not to mention, he designs super suits! Pretty damn nerdy.

So I think the thing here is that they both excel incredibly in their own separate fields of expertise. Though I think Winn also gets a few bonus points for his Nerf gun? Yes?

I can’t choose. It isn’t fair. 

Could anyone choose?? I would sincerely like to know what everyone’s thoughts are here!

Because we’re huge nerds and the Marauders give us life

I’d just like to take a second (upon completion of this post it was much more than a second but…) to acknowledge that my friend @shelbychild and I had a sleepover last night. At midnight, we turned the lights out. We did not go to bed at midnight…

We were up until 6 in the morning talking about Marauders headcanons. We actually spent 6 hours in the middle of the night talking, 90% of which was just us talking about our favorite characters in the whole world. Some things discussed:

  • Heights
  • Eye color
  • The progression of everyone’s hairstyles
  • Literally where everyone’s bed was located in the freaking dorm this is how much of a dork I am
  • Cuddle positions
  • Kisses (both platonic and romantic)
  • Bascially all of the affection because let’s be honest these boys were just one big cuddle puddle
  • Endearments (we spent a good 30 minutes just talking about how Wolfstar* would use all of the mushy pet names whereas you would almost never hear Jily using ‘honey’ and ‘sweetheart’ and the like)
  • Sirius’s relationship with the Potters and him totally calling them ‘mum’ and ‘dad’
  • Everyone’s role at James and Lily’s wedding like Sirius was the best man but come on Remus was totally Lily’s maid of honor
  • Sirius being the dad for the father/daughter dance, except they literally have a choreographed dance routine to some cheesy song and it makes them both so happy (thanks to @siriusly-not-over-remus and @girlswillbeboys11 for this one, which has quickly become one of my favorites)
  • We talked about this whole scene of Lily getting sleepy drunk after a post-Quidditch party and James bringing her to their dorm and her sleeping in Remus’s bed because Remus sleeps with Sirius now and Lily waking up the next morning and being like “what whose bed is this” and Remus is just like “it used to be mine” and Lily just squeals with happiness
  • How fun it would be to talk to @jackisnotabird about the Marauders because we both know how much he loves them too and how we see all of his activism stuff but he’s also just a huge Harry Potter nerd and how fun would it be to hear all of his headcanons too
  • How all of them are so close and even when Sirius and Remus started dating James in no way felt left out ever and he knows exactly when to squeeze in and force the couple to love him and when to let them have time to themselves
  • The importance of Professor McGonagall and Madam Pomfrey
  • A fair amount of angst, but we tried to stay away from Marauders angst for once and mostly focus on the happy things

And also a lot of other things, but yeah. The Marauders is one of my favorite things to talk about ever and it was super great to talk about them all night.

If anyone ever wants to talk about the Marauders please hit me up and I would be super happy to spout headcanons with you for hours. Just putting that out there.

*I would like to take this time to point out that Shelby was apathetic towards Wolfstar before last night, but a few hours in and she was spouting Wolfstar fluff almost as much as I was

there’s a few things shitty with what you are saying…. and usually I would just let it go but I can’t

  1. I started reading Percy Jackson in 2006, shortly after Sea of Monsters came out, so you can put that argument away
  2. I don’t remember any specific moments in either PJO or HoO where they definitively say Grover isn’t a POC or maybe a mixture of things
  3. even if there is, who gives a shit? I’m just trying to add a little diversity into one of my favorite book series
  4. “whitest kid ever” is probably you referring to his personality and not his actual appearance? like a black satyr couldn’t be a big nerd/really into nature and panpipes?? okay
  5. the PJ movies are shitty but mad props to them for casting a black man as a character who is widely accepted as white. that can open so many doors for future POC adaptations of other characters that stubborn people insist are white (Spider-Man, Annie, Harry Potter, MOSES, etc)
  6. please don’t say that imagining a book character as anything but white is “wrong” or “warped” because that is shitty and destructive thinking that frankly we need to get beyond

Heartstrings Verse - SummaryFollowing their fake-date at the carnival, Blaine tries to convince Kurt that it had meant something. Kurt isn’t buying it (except he totally is).

Warnings: pure fluff and angry nerd!blaine which is the exact same as fluff anyway and kissing

A/N: i’ve been writing so much in this verse but then I realized none of it would make sense without this piece. 

Kurt isn’t sure what to expect at their first tutoring session after their “date”.

But then Blaine is staring at him with wide eyes, making it very hard for Kurt to concentrate on fake-reading his textbook, and suddenly it’s obvious what he was expecting all along.

your mama took the ugly ones and put them into one nerd

Having the history knowledge perk in Inquisition is my favorite thing ever. It’s like, instant nerd. I mean, Lucien could have had Blackwall give a rousing speech to the Wardens or pointed out the fact that he’d spared some of them. Instead, he was like, “Let me recount for you the history of the Wardens.” And all the Wardens were just like, “Damn. His points on demon summoning and darkspawn Magisters didn’t really sway us but listen to him go. We gotta follow that fucking nerd.”
