My favorite story is that one time Tolkien was with some writer friends and he was like “oh I’ve got a new story to show you guys” and one of them was like “as long as it’s not more fucking elves”
and it was
it was more fucking elves
i think it’s funny how christianity made a big deal about mary being impregnanted by god and everyone was like “oh my god the son of god! we must worship him listen to his great wisdom.”
meanwhile, if you said god knocked you up in ancient greece they’d just be like “yeah, me too.”
Okay, I laughed.
at this point, i think marvel owes us a scene in the next avengers movie where natasha is like wHERE WERE ALL OF YOU?
"it was serious, clint"
"yeah but i had a thing"
"PEOPLE DIED, CLINT.”
in an alternate scenario: clint is like “WELL YEAH I WAS BUSY. DID YOU HEAR ABOUT ALL OF EURASIA GETTING WIPED OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH” “…no?” “YEAH. YOU’RE WELCOME FOR THAT.”
Basically I want Clint to be like this
