Whimsy Fits

First thing you should know: this blog follows no rhyme nor reason. Some of the madness includes things from books I read and tv shows or movies I watch. Those currently include books by Tamora Pierce, George RR Martin, and many of the BBC's television shows. Sometimes I interrupt the fan-posts with real life things that are important.

Based on this post, I finally managed to finish my first fan comic for Captain America.

So cute, i wonder if this is how it would have ended in the series had finished on its own.

This is basically what it’s like to be an adult.

That comment is perfect and real.

Petra Pan, the Girl who wouldn’t grow up : a masterpost

Hi guys ! I know an old Petra Pan masterpost exists somewhere, but it’s actually not mine, it’s reposted, so if you could just… not reblog it and maybe reblog / like this one instead, it would be super nice and super cool of you :3 ! The other one has like…. 87k of notes so it’s really cool to know that so many of you liked my art, but it’s not even credited so I didn’t know it was so popular before a friend of mine showed it to me ?

Besides, this one really has the full series -with Ms. Flee and the lost girls included- and I would be really happy if they could get the love they deserve !

so i heard people were talking shit about peggy carter’s new series





anybody who thinks peggy carter is some kind of anachronistic “feminist message” needs to read about these awesome world war ii ladies:

Nancy Wake

Hannah Szenes

Vera Atkins

Noor Inayat Khan

Violette Szabo

The Night Witches

Krystyna Skarbek

Christine Granville

(And also various code-breakers, map ladies etc.  They also serve who fight war with pencils.)

Just wanted to add links to these documentaries:

And Virginia Hall too.

I’ve seriously meant to do this for the past two milestones but… ehhhh it never happened.

So I’ve decided to do a sampler of my fandoms as well as a bit of an apology for people I’ve taunted with sights of delicious baked goods when they don’t have ovens.  As such, this giveaway will have two parts!  If you’re following me, you can win both, but if you aren’t, you can still win one.


This is available to anyone, regardless of whether you’re following me or not!  This will ship from Amazon.  You will receive trades of:

  • Marvel: Black Widow v4: The Name of the Rose.  This is one of my favorite Natasha stories.  Collecting the entirety of V4, t’s written by Marjorie Liu, drawn by Daniel Acuña, and is not only very good, but gorgeous as well.  Natasha’s minis have all set a very high personal standard for comics for me, and there are very few that I think actually live up to it.
  • Captain America and Bucky: the Life Story of Bucky Barnes.  If you’re interested in a quick summary of comic Bucky Barnes’s life and don’t want to wade through ten years of modern comics and dozens more older ones, this is a very good starting point.  It expands on Bucky’s life from joining the army, his days with Cap, and his life as the Winter Soldier.  I enjoyed this series a lot!
  • IDW: Lazarus vol 1.  Set in a post-apocalyptic future where territories are no longer divided by geographical lines but financial ones (think the 1% turned to the .000001% and owning 99.9999% of the world’s wealth), Lazaruses are elite members of the Families who serve as bodyguards.  The story follows Forever, a Lazarus, and not only does the series feature a kickass, nonsexualized female character, but is my favorite ongoing title coming out right now.  (Tw for violence)
  • DC: Aquaman vol 1.  Oh, Aquaman, that loser superhero?  WRONG.  In an extremely unprecedented move by DC, they managed to produce a decent title for the New 52!  More than decent, it’s really good!  Laugh all you want at his reputation, Arthur Curry is not amused by the jokes and proves time and time again that you really don’t want to mess with him.  (Plus, he’s a babe, and we get shirtless scenes.  What’s not to like?)
  • Under the Red Hood.  Have a thing for dead sidekicks?  Enjoy crying a lot over fictional characters?  Jason Todd is the way to go.  After Batman took him off the streets, he became the second Robin, developing a close bond with him before he died at the hands at the Joker three years later.  Became one of those names synonymous with Bucky for being a painful sidekick death and never coming back.  (Except we know what happened to Bucky.  Now imagine if Bucky hated Steve for his death.)  Yeah.  Fun for the whole family!
  • I was going to include X-Factor here because it’s the actual best comic I’ve ever read but I think it’s out of print so I’ll probably get it for you digitally.
  • Star Trek 2009 blu-ray (or DVD, if you don’t have a blu-ray player).  If you already have it (or don’t want it) I’ll get you volume 1 of the reboot comics~

I will also write you a fanfic of your choice provided it’s in one of my fandoms.  An incomplete list is here, and you can see my commissions page for further details about what I will/won’t write.


This is only available to my followers.  Sorry guys!  This will ship from home.

Unfortunately I don’t have non-stock pictures for most of these since I don’t want to bake them yet.  I should note that I can do my best to make dietary concessions for these (allergies, vegan, gluten-free, etc.), but I’ve never actually baked with a lot of replacements, so I can’t promise how they’ll turn out.

  • Your choice of a loaf of Pumpkin bread (which I have multiple testimonies that it’s the best goddamn pumpkin bread they’ve ever tasted) or Lemon Poppy Seed bread, if you’re not into pumpkin.
  • Swirled sugar cookies with nonpareils on the edges, your choice of color.  Alternatively, Starfleet insignia-shaped sugar cookies with nonpareils, since I’ve been itching to give my new molds a spin.
  • Peppermint bark coated pretzels.  They’re like white chocolate coated pretzels but a thousand times better.  I think some random pretzel company has started selling these lately, but don’t be fooled.  They are merely phonies.
  • Vanilla blondies (or brownies) with white chocolate and butterscotch chips.  I don’t like chocolate so I make this whenever I have a craving for brownie-textured things.  I can totally adjust the recipe with cocoa powder, though.
  • These things because I really want to try them but I don’t think I’ll be able to eat the whole batch.
  • Maybe something with s’mores or salted caramel idk I have a few recipes I’ve been wanting to try but I don’t know if they’re any good.
  • Also I might ship you something with a bunch of digital comics on it if you want i mean what


  • Ends on my birthday, May 15th, 2014, so I’ll actually remember said date. =__=;
  • Be okay with sending me your address
  • Have your ask box open
  • You get one like and one reblog.  I mean, you can reblog it more than once, but tumblr won’t pick it up.  I’ll just be counting the entries once.
  • No giveaway blogs.  I’ll be checking.  And please don’t use side blogs in addition to your main one—I’d like everyone to have a fair chance.
  • You don’t have to be following me to win the first giveaway, but it would be cool if you checked out my blog.
  • You must be following me to win the second giveaway.  If I draw a follower on the first go, they win both.  If I draw someone who isn’t a follower, they get the comics/movie and I’ll do another drawing for the food.  I will also be checking this.
  • I can’t afford to ship outside the US, sorry.  However, if you’re international and want to pay the difference in shipping or work something else out, let me know.
  • If you already have one of the comics listed, I might consider replacements of similar value, but on a case by case basis.  Followers are more likely to get consideration here.
  • I’ve probably forgotten something so I might update this post if I have.


but seriously though i’m sick and tired of those masterposts that are like “here! A reference site on Greek mythology for all your needs! Look it has all fifteen Greek gods on it!” And I’m like. tHERE WERE LIKE HUNDREDS OF FIGURES IN MYTHOLOGY YOUR CRAPPY HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL BIBLIOGRAPHY SITE MEANS NOTHING TO ME 

if you want a basic outline of Greek mythology okay sure fine??? but like. if you want an extensive fucking reference site you are looking in the wrong goddamn places

as a self-declared greek mythology snob my reference site is fucking always this fucker right here. almost every single figure ever mentioned in a Greek text is on it, it has the most obscure gods, spirits, nymphs— it’s GREAT. You really wanna extend your mythological knowledge past the basic 12 and like four others? USE THEOI.  plus plus PLUS everything is cited so you can actually read the source material written about whoever it is you’re looking at.

fucking signal boost this. i’m so sick and tired of writer’s helpers blogs referring people to sites with as much information you would get from opening a third grade mythology book jesus chriiiiiist

Marvel Charades with Anthony Mackie


(via yellowis4happy)

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that.










Better You

Frollo saw Esmeralda as a demon. Quasimodo saw Esmeralda as an Angel. Phoebus saw her as Esmeralda. That is why Esmeralda fell in love with Phoebus.
