If Ancient Roman Authors Had Tumblr

diedamederschatten:

Cicero: would put multi-paragraph rants without page breaks and piss everyone off

Catullus: would run one of those arty blogs that periodically startles you with hardcore gay porn on your dash

Vergil: would have a successful ongoing webcomic or blog and would constantly reblog and be reblogged by Horace

Horace: would post a ton of Instagram photos of wine and houses in the countryside and would constantly reblog and be reblogged by Vergil

Pliny the Elder: would post a bunch of photos of flowers, nature, and astronomical facts, and would die while attempting to liveblog the Vesuvius eruption

Lucretius: would be a nightblogger who would always post stuff like “what if when we die we become atoms and float away in the wind? Like you could be inhaling and exhaling your dead ancestors right now!”

Ovid: Would post a mixture of porn and reblogs of nature and portrait photos and would ultimately engage in massive flame wars and get banned for violating the Terms of Service

  • Things you learn when beginning most languages: Colors, numbers, "hi my name is"
  • Things you learn when beginning Latin: war, manliness, four words for "death"

lol remember how our parents told us never to put pictures of ourselves on the internet

alright kids today’s theme is red lipstick let’s do this.

thanks to tyromantic for tagging me <3

I’m tagging schmozby because we’re in love, muffin-fandom because I know it’ll annoy her, ptomlins because i have a bit of a tumblr crush, karakamos because ditto that last one, circley-square and miserablecupcake cause I don’t see enough of your faces, who-even-needs-pants cause she’s a babe, and I mean if you want to do this just let me know and I’ll add you to the list/ send you an imploring ask, so we’re all set. Six selfies each pls, xoxo

You know those girls everyone loves to shit all over? The ones who really fucking love something? Those girls, man. They take all that energy, all that circulating fire in their veins, and instead of letting it destroy them, they choose to love, ferociously. Be it a band, or a book, or a series of films. They do it to keep themselves sane, and yet we mock them for it. Teenage girls find a buoy for themselves in the sea of emotional ruin, and they hold on tighter than anyone else.

Anyone who dismisses her as eye candy didn’t watch the same movie I did, and ought to go sit in a corner and think about their misogyny.

I mean, god, it’s the little things.  That “who do you want me to be?” she asks Steve while they’re in the car is just so raw.  This is a woman whose entire life has been defined by ‘who do you want me to be?’ and so she falls back on it because she has nothing else left.  And Steve doesn’t buy into the trap and just says “how about a friend?”

And god, her face when she thought Nick Fury was dying. The sheer level of silent devastation she’s trying not to show and failing.  

I just cannot get seeing this moving and not seeing Natasha. Because if you just dismiss her as eye candy, that’s what you’re doing (I’m looking at you, several male reviewers). 

Today’s list of standout Natasha moments (it varies):

  • Reaction to Nick’s death.
  • Reaction to NIck’s not being dead (she looks so wounded under the physical pain and confusion).
  • Suiting up and infiltrating the WSC meeting with Pierce with a gunshot wound to her shoulder. 
  • Speaking of that, saving their asses shortly after getting said GSW, using a heavy piece of equipment even while she could barely stand.
  • Using the widow’s bite on herself.
  • That moment where she pauses to gird her emotional loins before she respond’s to Pierce’s jab about the world seeing her as she is (which it wouldn’t, because of course who she is and how she is is not what she’s done).
  • The steely-eyed, contained anger bubble gum snap. (Most bad-ass use of bubble gum ever.)
