HEY HEY HEY HEYYYYYYYY MY FAVORITE QUEER DRUNK ASSHOLE POET TURNED 450 TODAY (and let me tell you, there is a lot of competition for the title “favorite queer drunk asshole poet”)

BUT as we all know, there is some controversy over who ACTUALLY wrote shakespeare’s plays!

so in order to mark this SERIOUS and LEGITIMATE issue, i have compiled the most likely theories in this comprehensive list:

  • in julius caesar, cassius says, “this is my birthday; on this very day cassius was born.” on that same day, cassius DIES. guess who else was not only born on april 23, but died april 23?? that’s right, shakespeare. english playwright? or ancient roman ghost bent on revenge? YOU BE THE JUDGE.
  • shakespeare married a woman called anne hathaway. BATMAN ALSO MARRIED ANNE HATHAWAY. have you ever seen shakespeare and batman in the same place at the same time??????
  • lived in london? totally encountered prostitutes several times? probably spoke english? william shakespeare……. or JACK THE RIPPER
  • uh, excuse me, an uneducated glovemaker’s son couldn’t possibly have written the 38 works of art attributed to shakespeare. please consider instead this picture of a cat pushing another cat in a shopping cart. you’re welcome.
  • ””“”“”“”“”“president obama????”“”“”“”“” more like PRESIDENT WILLIAMSHAKESPOBAMA. wake UP, america
  • aliens.
  • ME I’M WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE I HAVE BEEN SHAKESPEARE ALL ALONG AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA YOU FOOLS YOU IGNORANT FOOLS

#happy 450th you old loser i hope you’re banging kit marlowe in heaven

Sudden, horrid and wonderful, headcanon that came to me while watching random Youtube videos.

Hydra was about to come and recruit Obediah Stane and Stark Ind. With Howard’s son dead and no Stark legacy to continue Hydra could be free to wrap its tentacle around the US’s biggest defense contractor.

But then Tony came home, bringing Iron Man with him.

And suddenly Nick Fury is talking about bringing him into the Avengers Initiative, something S.H.I.E.L.D. had put on ice  It’s fitting, since Tony’s dad had helped found S.H.I.E.L.D. in the first place. So he sends his best man in to make the offer. But things get sidetracked due to Stane’s betrayal and second attempt on Tony’s life.

After all is said and done, after Tony Stark comes out to the world as a superhero, Fury adjusts and goes to Malibu to make the offer himself.

And Hydra collectively curses such a beautiful and fitting opportunity, wasted. All because Phil Coulson had to run in and help Pepper Potts bring down Obediah Stane.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!  

This is why this is important.

You are possessed of time travel technology with peculiar limits: You can go back and change anything about any of your fandoms, but that's it. What do you attempt to correct or corrupt?

I just have one answer. I can live with nearly everything else. Just one.

Albus.

Severus.

Potter.

Maybe 25-year old Harry is a gentler, more forgiving man. But no matter what those men did, they were both still very abusive and flawed. How about original names for his children, a fresh start? And did Ginny have zero say in the naming of her children? It’s still bizarre.
