gods for the modern age: persephone
wear flowers in your hair and silks on your body. do not let yourself wither. do not let yourself break. tattoo what was done to you onto your skin and turn it into a weapon. rise from the ashes year after year, trailing glory in your train and wearing riches in your crown. you were good, you stayed hidden, but you were tricked and dragged down into the shadows anyway—so by god, make those shadows your own.
I find it so scary that anyone who you could be standing next to in a line, anyone who you cross paths with in day-to-day life could just kill you. You could die anytime anyplace and it freaks me out.

#completely convinced marvel just finds the actual characters to play their parts
Marvel’s casting department cannot be beat. Literally all of the actors are their characters.
"The truth is, everyone likes to look down on someone. If your favorites are all avant-garde writers who throw in Sanskrit and German, you can look down on everyone. If your favorites are all Oprah Book Club books, you can at least look down on mystery readers. Mystery readers have sci-fi readers. Sci-fi can look down on fantasy. And yes, fantasy readers have their own snobbishness. I’ll bet this, though: in a hundred years, people will be writing a lot more dissertations on Harry Potter than on John Updike. Look, Charles Dickens wrote popular fiction. Shakespeare wrote popular fiction - until he wrote his sonnets, desperate to show the literati of his day that he was real artist. Edgar Allan Poe tied himself in knots because no one realized he was a genius. The core of the problem is how we want to define “literature”. The Latin root simply means “letters”. Those letters are either delivered - they connect with an audience - or they don’t. For some, that audience is a few thousand college professors and some critics. For others, its twenty million women desperate for romance in their lives. Those connections happen because the books successfully communicate something real about the human experience. Sure, there are trashy books that do really well, but that’s because there are trashy facets of humanity. What people value in their books - and thus what they count as literature - really tells you more about them than it does about the book."
