THE CUTEST AND MOST ADORABLE THING YOU WILL EVER READ IN YOUR WHOLE LIFE

HOW ARE NOSELESS AND MOUTHLESS THOR AND LOKI SO ADORABLE

HOW

(Source: The amazingly talented and creative Lauren Gracek)

I kinda love that this is less grim than the story it’s based on.

AO3 really needs the equivalent of “not” and “or” filters to go with its “and” filters, I am just saying.

Okay so Thor is talking about the five norn stones but…

Why are there always five of these pretty colored gems? Is it so that you can set them into bitching rings for each finger? Like, norn stones on one hand, infinity gems on the other? That would be some pretty hardcore jewellery.

Unless the norn stones and the infinity gems are actually the same thing, because if so, never mind, ignore me.

girlsbydaylight said:Aren’t there six Infinity Gems? Also, shhhhh, no, these things are not consistent or even well thought out in the beginning, stop trying to apply logic, just let it happen, shhhhhh.

Are there? Maybe you’re right, for some reason I thought there were five but the infinity gems make my head ache so I haven’t tried as hard as I could to remember all of them. XD (Time, Space, Power… Something…)

Mostly I am just imagining the total clusterfuck if someone had all of both of them. Oh shit, I shouldn’t have said that, now someone will think it is a good idea for the next apocalyptic multiverse wide event.

So it has just occurred to me that giving up on comics for another 2 years and forcing myself to read the current Avengers runs until I can take it no longer are not my only options here.

INSTEAD I WILL READ AVENGERS V3, the 1998 run. Because everyone tells me it is amazing.

I mean, that will…

I was originally willing to give Hickman’s run a try because I heard he’d been pretty good on other things and I liked what he was saying about diversity before the Marvel NOW launch, plus he had some of my favourites on the team, but then I was out of comics for a while so I didn’t start it when it was first coming out, and by the time I thought to look into it I read some stuff about the way characters were being handled and the apparently confusing mess that the plot was turning into and I was just like… sigh, no.

I am getting so confused by all these different Avengers teams, though. I mean, I am deeply grateful that Secret Avengers is no more, because I didn’t like the concept, but it is still confusing. What’s the title/line-up for the other one?

oh wait I just used the amazing power of Google.

I think I read the beginning of that when it was still a Bendis run and it was kind of in the weird gray zone of movie tie-in but using 616 verse? I just remember it had the movie characters, and there was a thing with Natasha and Clint making out. I totally didn’t know it was still going, but Wiki makes it sound intriguing, so I might try it out. :)

I mean, that will only last until I finish it and then I will be uncomfortably reminded that the next thing that happened was Disassembled, which marks the beginning of “and then everything went to shit” (which… I was referring to the 616 world, but it could also refer to the cascade of poorly handled events since then), but whatever.
