Are there any "geek retro" things that you think are dangerously close to be forgotten by time, even with the internet?
Too many to even begin to answer. I guess my entire blog could be the answer to this question!
Off the top of my head,it is strange that it fell into the memory hole that part of the reason Tiny Toon Adventures closed down production was because of a furry stalker who sent death threats to the cast. That could have been a film.
What surprises me isn’t what’s forgotten (because forgetting is natural and inevitable with the passage of time), but what’s remembered. I love H.P. Lovecraft to death but I find it surprising that he is the Weird Tales guy that thundered into pop culture, simply because, as good as he was, he wasn’t super-prolific; his correspondence is enormous, but his body of work is smaller. You could read everything Lovecraft wrote in his life in one summer. Also, his work is so context dependent, “inside baseball,” with a billion little shout-outs to all his buddies like Clark Ashton Smith, that I wonder how possible it is to dive in deep and get it. Lovecraft is so big now, that he isn’t even a man anymore, he’s a word: Lovecraftian.
Part of it is that Lovecraft (like Lord of the Rings) was rediscovered by the 1960s counterculture. Lovecraft was frequently mentioned and influential in one of the most important books of the 20th Century, “The Morning of the Magicians,” which is easily the beginning of the New Age movement.

Summary: From time to time you have walked the earth, looking for some fun, and why not, love. The 21st century welcomed you with a friend and that friend’s friend. Anyway, I suck at summaries.
Pairing: Tony Stark x Reader
Warnings: Alcohol, language.
A/N: I changed the request a bit, from siren to goddess. Whoopsies. I’m a huge nerd for ancient mythology (Roman and Greek mostly) so yeah. Ever since that Supernatural episode when all gods got together I thought that it was a great idea, anywyay, I hope you like it <3
Ever since the day you came to Earth, you knew
you were something else. You had the shape of a human but you were far from
being a mere one. From the beginning, you were told you were different and
people had made you feel like that. If there was a way to describe you, “the
fairest of them all” would have been a good way to do so, but truth be told,
you were not exactly a princess. In fact, “goddess” would be the correct term.
Every once in a few centuries, you walked the
Earth just to have that glimpse of decadency that humans adored so much and
every once in a while you’d fall in love. It was almost a ritual for you and it
filled your days with momentary and empty joy. That until the 21st
You knew there were other gods walking among
humans and you decided to pay them a quick visit. That was how you ran into
Thor, but his heart and mind were occupied with someone else, and you didn’t
want to screw that up. You had your principles and you respected them as if
they were law. Along with the Nordic god of thunder came his step brother Loki,
but you didn’t really fancy him. What an arrogant douche bag he was.
But Thor had even more company with him, only
these were humans. The first one you met was an also very arrogant man called Tony
Stark. He was charming, and he seemed blown away by you, but you were not sure
if it was because of your natural ability to enchant people or if his feelings
You were flirty by nature, but you knew how and
when to stop pretending, and so you did, but Tony’s ministrations to you were
non-stopping. That was the moment when you realized that everything he said he
felt for you was true. You decided to break down the news about your true self
over some alcohol.
“You should know,” you said calmly, “I am a
goddess.” You played with your own little glass with some human beverage that
tasted incredibly good. Whiskey they called it, and they had perfected
throughout the years.
“No shit you are.” He laughed heartedly, taking
the glass of whiskey to his lips.
“People used to call me Venus… but I find the name rather old fashioned. I’ve been (Y/N) (Y/L/N) for quite a while now and I
prefer you calling me like that.” You smiled widely at his natural surprise.
“Why do you think I get on so well with Thor?”
“So…” Tony said after a long silence, “is it
true that you were born from the sea foam?” He shook his head lightly, trying
to seem normal.
“Yes, indeed.” You nodded, chuckling lightly at
his question, people’s usual reaction tended to be about your age. “But it’s
been quite a while since then so I really have little memories about it.” You
shook your head. “I’m guessing you don’t remember the day you were born
“No, not really,” he let out a breathy laugh,
“were you ever a kid? I mean, I remember studying ancient Greek mythology in
school, but it said nothing about it.”
“No, I was born like this. I don’t remember any
of my acquaintances ever being a child,” you shrugged, “I guess we were not
meant for childhood as you, humans, were.”
With time, you and Tony got serious, but even
though he was cool with dating the Venus herself, he still had some problems
with your natural charm. You were instantly loved by everyone you met, men and
women equally. It wasn’t like you were making them fall in love with you, the
same way you didn’t do with him, but it was just part of your nature. You
didn’t ask to be made like this.
It wasn’t until one of his usual parties where
you were taken almost against you will, where things got really problematic
between you too. He, of course, had drank more than his fair share and you were
just exhausted. Thor sat next to you, with a beer in his hand and observed how
everyone got drunk, and you two were specially watching how Captain America
tried to get drunk with all his willpower, but the poor man couldn’t be any
“How do you manage,” you sighed, “to be a god
and yet have a normal, earthling like, life?”
“You and I rule over different things,
Venus—sorry, (Y/N).” He corrected himself. “My power comes from nature or…
nature comes from my power, but yours… you rule over people’s hearts… that’s
gotta be hard, and I wouldn’t even wish it upon my cruelest enemies.”
“You make it sound like a curse,” you exhaled,
“and it is, really.” You admitted after a pause.
“It’s a great weight to carry upon your
shoulders, but I’m glad you found someone like Tony to cope it with you.”
“You’re a good guy, Odinson.” You turned your
head to him and smiled. “I wish the other thunder guy I know was half as good
as you are.”
“Oh there you are!” Tony exclaimed, stinking
like alcohol and trying to hold your hand. “My two favorite freaks!” You
dreaded the word, and the minute it spilled out of his drunk lips, you pulled
your hand away. “Don’t get all prude with me, (Y/N). I know what game you’re
“Tony, I have no idea what you’re talking
about.” You stood up and with your heels clacking on the tile floor, you moved
away from him, but he stepped in front of you and cut your way.
“Tony—” Thor tried to intervene, but he was
“No, no. Don’t try to defend her.” Tony pointed
at him. “I’m sure she must have tricked you with that thing of hers, right?” He
cocked an eyebrow at you two. “I’m sure she must have tricked everyone in this
room, or am I wrong? Because if you ask me, they all look at you as if they
were undressing you, (Y/N).” As much as you tried to walk away, you couldn’t.
Tony moved along with you and the feeling of being observed by everyone made
you very self-conscious and nervous. “You’re not going anywhere, ma’am.”
“Tony Stark, let go of me.” You grew angrier
and embarrassed in equal proportions, in your years of existence, nobody had
dared to treat you like that. Worst thing? He wasn’t giving up. “I’m not gonna
say it again.”
Next thing you know, Tony is grabbed by his
collar by Thor and thrown away as if he was a feather, only he didn’t fall as
gracefully. He groaned on the floor, as he rolled over the broken table he had
just fallen over. The son of Odin walked to you just to see if you were alright
but you were in such shock that you were barely able to pronounce a word. He
walked you outside the common room and everyone got immediately sober by the
strange scene that just happened before their eyes.
Thor took you to his bedroom to calm you down.
He poured some of the beverage he always brought to the parties and handed the
glass to you. Your hands were shaking and you could barely take the drink to
your lips. Your eyes were fixed on the amberish liquid, but your companion soon
interrupted your bewilderment with his deep voice.
“That was unacceptable!” He brawled as he paced
in the room. “I have never seen him acting like this!”
“Thor, calm down…” You mumbled. You knew he was
as calmed as he could be. You have heard the stories about the wrath of the son
of Odin, and his counterpart Zeus was capable of very much the same things. You
sighed heavily and drank the content of the glass in one big sip. “Can you take
me somewhere else?” you asked after a long silence, shaking your head lightly.
“I believe Tony has a lot of properties along the country and I really couldn’t
stand to stay the night in your room… I’m sure Jane wouldn’t agree with that.”
“She would understand,” Thor gave you an
assuring smile, “but if you’re worried about Stark, I’ll take you wherever you
feel more comfortable.”
And with those words, Thor secretly took you to
one of the cars that Tony kept in his garage. Even though you wanted to stay as
away from him as the Earth could allow, you didn’t want Thor to feel obliged to
drive you there. You knew how to do it, and in case you got stopped, you could
always get the cops off your back. Thor wished you a safe journey as he
embraced you in his big arms. You assured him you’d let him know when you got
there, and so you left.
Almost a whole two weeks went by before you got
any news from Tony. The man himself had appeared at your front door, or his, by
midday. You were in a silk robe that you completely forgot you had. You spent a
lot of time at the tower and so most of your clothing was wither there or at
your own place. He looked like shit, but as it was still his house, you moved
aside to let him in. He asked you to sit down in the sweetest voice you had
heard, and you knew immediately that he was sorry for how he had acted.
“(Y/N), first thing is that I’m very sorry for
what happened that night.” He started. He was sitting on the white couch and
you patiently observed him from the other couch in front of him. “I shouldn’t
have said that and I feel terrible because I know I hurt you.” He kept looking
at his hands, and you were trying to keep a straight face, but deep inside your
façade was crumbling apart. “I said awful things, and I definitely deserved
that from Thor. But I never meant to hurt you… I love you, baby.”
“You know,” you gulped, “in the many years I’ve
been on Earth, I’ve never felt more embarrassed for being who I am—”
“And I shouldn’t have made you feel like that,
(Y/N).” Tony hurried to say. “I am an asshole and I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have done
“You were drunk.” You said coldly.
“That’s not an excuse, (Y/N), and you know
that.” He was right. You were not trying to justify his actions, but you were
trying to make him realize that point. “I’m so ashamed for what I did, and… I
got it coming, really. I deserved being thrown away by Thor.”
“That’s not what this is about,” you exhaled
heavily, “you treated me like a whore, Stark. As if I was the lowest thing in
the world. I am not that.”
“You’re right! You’re not one, and I…” his
voice cracked, “I just shouldn’t have said that. I mean, you’re seriously the
best thing that’s happened to me in a long time, and… I don’t want to lose you.
I’ve lost too many people to let you be on that list.”
He got up from “his” couch and got closer to
you. Your body tensed as he kneeled in front of you; he intertwined his hands over
your knees and looked straight at you, like a lost puppy looking for home. It
was hard for you not to fall over it, because you had lost track of the times
you had lost arguments over it.
“I want to know if you’re ever gonna accept who
I am,” you finally said, trying to avoid his eyes, “and the good and bad things
that come with my nature, because if not… then I guess I should leave.” You placed
your hands over his to put them away from you.
“No!” He said abruptly, holding your hands and
your gaze. His jaw trembled. “(Y/N), no… don’t leave. I know you don’t believe
shit of what I just said, but I mean it. Every word.”
“Well, then…” you inhaled sharply. “You’re
gonna have to make it up to me, big time.” You conceded with a cold voice, but
a bit of a smile on your lips. “Because I’ve missed you like hell, Tony Stark.”
You leaned forward to gently kiss his forehead. “I love you, and the next time
you dare to treat me like that, I’m gonna send a friend’s doggy and it won’t be
as nice and forgiving as I am.” You gently threatened, making Tony let out a
breathy laugh. “I’m not joking.” His laugh ceased and he looked up at you with
his eyes widened. “Ok, I was joking.” You giggled and leaned in, this time, to
crash your lips on his.
