I thought: I want to go to China. It’s full of treasures and strangeness and mystery and joy. I thought, Will anyone be better off if I go straight back to the hotel and say my prayers and confess to the priest and promise never to fall into temptation again? Will anyone be the better for making me miserable?

And the answer came back - no. No one will. There’s no one to fret, no one to condemn, no one to bless me for being a good girl, no one to punish me for being wicked. Heaven was empty. I didn’t know whether God had died, or whether there never had been a God at all.

In the year 2011, the European Central Bank made 171 billion euros out of nowhere. 185 billion in 2012. 145 billion euros in 2013. Do you know where all that money went? To the banks. Directly from the factory to the pockets of the rich. Did anyone say that the European Central Bank was a thief? “Liquidity injections”, they called it. And they pulled it out of nowhere. Out of nowhere. It’s nothing, Raquel. It’s paper. It’s just paper, don’t you see?

So I've always been stubbornly disinterested in anything marvel/dc related but, as a fellow Dany stan, I have to admit that your love for Tony Stark is tempting me into giving the mcu movies a chance........

YES!!

My evil plan of indoctrinating my followers with a love of Tony Stark is working!

On a more serious note though, as a Dany stan it is very hard not to love Tony Stark. In the MCU, Tony Stark is basically the love-child of Tyrion and Daenerys.

Tony has Tyrion’s “my dad never liked me and always preferred the blonde heroic ideal of a brother more than me” complex. Also, Tony has Tyrion’s “My dad abused me, and I hate him, and I want to undo the kingdom he built, but also subconsciously I want him to be proud of me” complex.

But Tony’s narrative, especially in the MCU, is very (almost eerily) similar to Dany’s. They are both the symbolic fire in their stories. Both are the scions of a powerful family whose legacy is either saving the world/destruction and war. Tony gets kidnapped, Dany gets “married off” to a different culture in the desert, and they both get their eyes opened. And it is here, they both emerge from fire (literally) and gets “reborn” to reshape the world. They both try so hard to do good in the world - sometimes their actions help, sometimes they exacerbate the problem - but their heart is in the right place. And despite all the setbacks, they keep on persevering and do what they know in their heart is right. They both have saviour complexes and Tony is as paternal as Dany is maternal. They both long for a simple life with someone they love, but duty and destiny push them into powerful roles. And despite being weary of war, they have to continue fighting for the good of humanity. They are both betrayed in very similar ways and they punish or forgive them in the same way. Also, both Dany and Tony are somehow the isolated ones in the group of heroes. they are both villanized for no good reason.

They are both incredibly complex characters whose power comes from their heart.

If you really want to look into Tony, I would suggest watching Iron Man, The Avengers, and Iron Man 3. They are incredibly fun movies that are a breezy watch and yet they have the best portrayals of Tony. If you would like to see Tony going down a self-destructive spiral throw in Iron Man 2 (it’s plot isn’t great, but it’s definitely a fun one-time watch. and if you would like to watch tony just make the world hate him as he is suffering from pain and inevitable death).

Your gifsets of Qi’ra have me sobbing with love, my baby girl looked so damn good in Star Wars! ♥️

She was such a bb girl. I loved her in it and actually liked the film despite the criticism. I may be biased but she was the literally the most interesting part about that movie. Shame they didn’t delve more into her character.

Except from Saturday’s update of The Fight Before Christmas for the lovely @alrightsnaps


Lily tears a strip of tape from the roll, severs it with her teeth and affixes a silver balloon, the last of the bunch, to a spot above her head. “Is she staying overnight?”

“Nah, she’ll drive back later.”

“Is Fleamont coming?”

“He’s got a cold, so he’s staying at home.”

“That’s a shame, I would have liked to see them both before we leave.”

“Just Fleamont and Euphemia?”

Lily leans over the banister and fixes her mum with a glare worthy of a moody teenager. “Mother.”

“What?”

“You know what.”

“I’m sure I don’t have a clue what you mean,” says she, the picture of innocence. “But he is coming, in case you were interested.”

“I don’t care either way,” Lily retorts, to hide the fact that she does.
