A house of women now. Bitter old women with a taste for blood. Women do not forget. Women do not forgive.
“Killed 99 bears”
a fact that if actually accomplished, should be put on a tombstone.
My favorite part is “We hope he has gone to rest.” What, like… they weren’t sure? Maybe, if ever the bear uprising should start again, he would rise from the ground to finish what he started and slay that 100th bear?
Was this man so powerful they are concerned he might not have decided to rest at all and is simply biding his time?
The bears made that tombstone.
A warning, and a prayer.
That he really, truely stays down.
This is too badass not to reblog.
Reblog for last commentThe bear clerics used every ounce of ursine divine magic they had, and they still aren’t sure it was enough.
follow me on Twitter for more indignation about comic culture and bad puns.
They do realize people are usually referring to the comics, not the movies?
you mean like DC which has two prominent characters right now named “Superman” who are black? Or how the Batfamily has had leads that range from black man to lesbian former soldier to an upcoming series where the two leads are women of color? Where about half of the batbooks are led by people who aren’t white dudes? Or how there’s been a team of all women in the DCU for the past 15 years and even had a TV show based on the team? where DC has 7 female writers to Marvel’s 3?
Everyone fawns at Marvel for their progressiveness but the only thing they have is better PR
You bring up female Thor? When Wonder Woman has been around since the 40s? Plus, that “Wonder Woman is not a feminist” wasn’t even what the guy said.
And I honestly doubt that “Thor is a woman; Cap is black” will last.
Yeah the comic Birds of Prey had existed for a long time and had a TV series (although it wasn’t successful) before you boast about Agent Carter.
Fourteen years ago, a Death Eater named Bellatrix Lestrange used the Cruciatus Curse on my parents. She tortured them for information, but they never gave in. I’m quite proud to be their son.
This hurts. A lot.
One of the scenes that I will never be able to forget from the book is the scene when they’re at the hospital and Neville’s mother comes and gives him the sweet wrapper. She’s been tortured to insanity, but some part of her, some tiny diamond hard fragment of who she was, smothered by the shattered remains of herself remembers her son enough to want to make him smile.
She gives him a present to make him smile, and you just know Neville took that sweet wrapper home with him and put it in a box with all the other random pieces of rubbish she has given to him over the past 14 years.
This is why Neville’s story makes me hurt much more than Harry. Neville’s parents are still there. He can still see them and touch them, but he can never and will never know what they think of him, of what he has become. But no matter what happens, he will do every damn thing he can to be a man they would be proud of. Even if he’s scared, he will be brave because they were.
Re: Neville will never know what they think of him: it’s interesting that Harry, for all he never knew his parents, interacts with them quite a lot for an orphan. Both the Priori Incantatem spell and the Resurrection Stone let Lily and James talk to Harry. They tell him how brave he is and how proud they are and how much they love him.
Neville gets a bubblegum wrapper.
#I JUST REALIZED THAT SHE’S NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT HIM GETTING WITH HER #SHE’S TALKING ABOUT HOW SHE’D NEVER LET HIM BE THE ONE WHO KILLED HER #SHE’D NEVER GIVE HIM THE SATISFACTION OF GETTING A THIRD SLAYER AND MOST OF ALL HER #THAT HE’S NOT WORTHY OF GETTING HER BODY OR HER BLOOD (via captainzoe)
GRRM: Here’s a highly intelligent, queer, sex positive woman of color in a position of real power as heiress to Dorne, who’s POV is a major portion of the book and establishes her as a crucial character in the series, and on top of that is badass and sexy.
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss: Okay but what about that kid brother she had? The one with no lines? Let’s just cut Arianne, age him up, and make him heir to Dorne. Because our show just doesn’t have enough sexism yet.
