Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman. From Time Magazine:
TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?
Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.
I am here for this
I haven’t posted progress in a million years. The chain suit is finished. All I have left is finishing the leather and casting the elf ears.
You did Merrill’s full-body chain?! It looks amazing, how did you do it? It must have taken SO much time and work! Err, I should ask, is it ok to reblog this? I just wanted my followers to see it.
Thanks:D Rebloging is fine. Your followers can also see my bathroom:D
It’s taken about 2 years. There are 20,000 aluminum rings (I think it was 16 gauge but I don’t remember.) The instructions for making the sleeves and making it fitted come from here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm I also used the pants pattern from the Armor Archive. http://www.armourarchive.org/essays/book__practical_chainmail/practical_chainmail.shtml
I am reblogging this version too so my followers can see it and spread it like wild fire, this took two years of sticking to it and pure dedication
I have literally never seen something more badass, I’m like in cosplay tears over it and I remember you starting this forever ago and I remember liking it back then too. It is amazing to see and I hope I get to see pictures of the final product.
Seriously well done. Oh my frick.
This is amazing, like, amazing!
I just think every driver should read this.
Too many people are oblivious to these facts, mainly because they’ve never been in or driven a truck hauling horses.
Whenever I see Justice’s dialogue about Kristoff and Aura, I wonder if Justice was really the part of Anders that fell in love with Hawke. Justice just seems so fascinated by the idea of romantic connection. Compare and contrast with DA:A Anders, who hates the thought…
I agree with the OP. I’ve always felt my Hawke fell in love with Justice and not Anders so I agree with this theory (at least the 2 times I went with Anders). None of my Warden-Commanders were even attracted to Anders, but Justice possessing Kristoff? Yes, definitely. That Fade spirit was looking to make a connection. He had Kristoff’s memories of what love was and yearned for it, but Anders will flat out tell you that falling in love isn’t something mages let themselves do. I firmly believe that if Anders had been in Kirkwall and NOT possessed by Justice, he would not have been open to love with Hawke. Casual sex? Yes. But not love.
h/t to amomenttothink for retweeting this.
Someone on LJ suggested that Verity Willis could be Sigyn (reincarnation or something like that)… What do you think about it?
Al Ewing has said that Verity’s grandfather has been seen in the Marvel universe before, so that’s a small hint to her origins. From what he’s…
“So speaks a maid who has never played the game with anyone. Once you do you’ll take a different view. In the dark you’d be as beautiful as any other woman. Your lips were made for kissing.”
“They are lips,” said Brienne. “All lips are the same.”
“And all lips are made for kissing,” Hunt agreed pleasantly. “Leave your chamber door unbarred tonight, and I will steal into your bed and prove the truth of what I say.”
“If you do, you’ll be a eunuch when you leave.” Brienne got up and walked away from him. - Brienne, A Feast for Crows.
I present the most badass gifset on Tumblr.
Legitimately turned on by this
This is the best thing.
Oh my god
I don’t even know this fandom and this is cool.
Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.
Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so fucking cool.
(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best damn Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)
