Marvel Meme: One Superhero [1/1] → Captain America
∟ “When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree by the river of truth, and tell the whole world ‘No, You Move.”
Im not sure Disney understands this concept very well
My 5-year-old insists that Bilbo Baggins is a girl.
The first time she made this claim, I protested. Part of the fun of reading to your kids, after all, is in sharing the stories you loved as a child. And in the story I knew, Bilbo was a boy. A boy hobbit. (Whatever that entails.)
But my daughter was determined. She liked the story pretty well so far, but Bilbo was definitely a girl. So would I please start reading the book the right way? I hesitated. I imagined Tolkien spinning in his grave. I imagined mean letters from his testy estate. I imagined the story getting as lost in gender distinctions as dwarves in the Mirkwood.
Then I thought: What the hell, it’s just a pronoun. My daughter wants Bilbo to be a girl, so a girl she will be. And you know what? The switch was easy. Bilbo, it turns out, makes a terrific heroine. She’s tough, resourceful, humble, funny, and uses her wits to make off with a spectacular piece of jewelry. Perhaps most importantly, she never makes an issue of her gender—and neither does anyone else.” —

Enjoy our interview with incredibly talented fan writer Kimberlite8 as she shares her epic process of producing a fully illustrated and downloadable novella-length fic which explores the complex relationship between A Song of Ice and Fire/ Game of Thrones’ fan-favorite couple, Sansa and the Hound.
A must read ;)
Kim’s SanSan e-book is the most impressive thing I’ve ever seen in fandom - and I’ve been part of online fandom since 1996. She deserves all the kudos in the world.
redcandle17 ‘s review made me sniffle. Copying it here because its a joyous occasion I want to remember forever:
Hi, Kim. I read “Running with the Hare and Hunting with the Hound” today. I’m selfishly glad I delayed reading it until now. It was such a treat to read it in its illustrated e-book format. There were so many lines that were so insightful and/or beautifully lyrical (which is high praise coming from someone who usually has little patience for poetry!), but I didn’t want to stop reading to make note of them, so I can’t point them out now.
What else can I say but well done. You are foremost among the people who make me proud to be a SanSan shipper.
"They had me rigged on this thing where I’m holding onto handles on his shoulder with my legs wrapped around his neck. He’s kinda trying to throw me off and I’m on top of him and it was so many hours of me, riding him like a mechanical bull.”
"And we’re looking over at the producers and we’re like, ‘are you happy now? Do we have enough footage?’ and they’re like, ‘looks great on camera!" - (x)

My favorite part about Hannibal is knowing that one day he is going to be locked up without his suits and he will have to wear velcro shoes.
