"When super-villains want to scare each other, they tell Joker stories."


Ollie Renee Schminkey - “How to Love Your Body in Ten Easy Steps” (CUPSI 2014)

"Call it self-hate. Call it ‘I just need an alone day.’ Take an alone day every day."

Performing for Macalester College during prelims at the 2014 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational.


She had all of her mother’s beauty and none of her nature. Dornish law would always rule in Dorne. And Myrcella is in Dorne. By law the Iron Throne should pass to her.

Do you know children in Palestine fly kites to prove that they are still free?
Can you imagine how that string must feel between their fingers
as they kneel in the cinders of our missile heads
I wonder what the dead in warsaw would say about the taxes we pay without thought
of funding another holocaust.

The bough is breaking.
The cradle is falling.
Right now a six-year old girl is crutched in a ditch in Lebanon
wishing on falling bombs.
Right now our government is recording the test scores of black and Latino 4th graders
to see how many prison beds will be needed in the year 2015.
Right now there’s a man on the street outside that door
with outstretched hands full of heart beats no one can hear.
He has cheeks like torn sheet music,
Every tear a broken crescendo falling on deaf ears.
At his side there’s a girl with eyes like an anthem
that no one stands up for.

Doctor, our insanity is not that we see people who aren’t there.
It’s that we ignore the ones who are.
Till we find ourselves scarred and ashamed
walking into emergency rooms at two a.m.
flooded with a pain we cannot name or explain
because we are bleeding from the outside in.
Skin is not impervious.
Cultures built on greed and war do not pick and choose who they kill.
We all fill the graves.

"You and I fight for the same cause, the protection of this world"

#i’m crying and laughing #no one else could ever ever ever EVER #no one else in this universe even comes close #i think the thing that fascinates me the most about jane and the thing that makes her singularly unique in this universe #is the fact that she is the only one who has the potential to build rather than destroy #everyone else is reacting; to threats to monsters to intergalactic alien godkings #to being thrown into turmoil to being thrown into obscurity and then fighting their way out of it and redeeming themselves #tony builds an iron suit to shed himself of his merchant of death moniker; natasha is doing penance the only way she knows how #thor is relearning himself and learning his privilege and learning to appreciate strength in new ways; steve is trying to remake a dying myt #into a living legend again; banner is just trying to survive; fury is arming earth and literally everyone else #is on the line of defense #literally everyone else has their thoughts contained to their planet and contained in their own realm and galaxy and it’s jane #and only jane who is looking outwards; not even just to the kingdom of god #not even just to usurp the place of heaven #jane is the only one who acts first; her entire life has been a climb from the dirtheap of humanity and daring #to see shapes in the stars and daring to reach for them #everyone else is fighting; everyone else is defending #jane foster #is the one who isn’t mindful of the dirt on her feet #jane foster is the one reaching for the apple at the end of the branch and saying ‘eat’ (via ilvalentinos)
