#mary shelley #this quote though #it’s all kinds of wonderful #hey remember that time one asswipe was like you have 30 seconds to name something invented by a woman… #…and Mary was like SCIENCE FICTION MOTHERFUCKERS #that was awesome #thanks Mary Shelley (via snappily)
And the next time someone starts claiming that teenage girls have ruined the horror genre with romance or whatever you can be like, hey dicksmack, teenage girls and romance built your genre so sit the fuck down.

i want this tattooed on me at some point
Mary Shelley fucking invented your favourite genre motherfuckers. You owe her Kirk and Vader and every goddamned Joss has ever done that’s made you cream your pants. Created when she was a teenager cause, hey, that’s how she rolled. She took love and showed it as the powerful, terrifying, all-encompassing, ruthless, wrathful thing it is.
And I would like to add:
Maria Hill irritably recruiting the latest batch of SHIELD
"Earn $45K a year or for as long as you manage to avoid catching a bullet with your face."
"Medical and dental and the occasional accidental chemical exposure that might turn you into the next Bruce Banner! And if you think that’s a perk you should work in R&D."
"Free housing as long as you don’t mind living in Hawkeye’s building. He’s a shit landlord but his dog is cute."
"You get to be in the vicinity of pretty people like Captain America, Thor and me. Mostly me. Yelling at you. Occasionally Agent Carter. Also yelling at you."
"Lower level interns may only refer to Agent Romanoff by her codename: Black Widow. Only agents with level 6 or above clearance may refer to her as She Who Doesn’t Fucking Clean The Microwave After Her Hot Pocket Explodes All Over It Jesus Fuck."
"There’s no glamour in spying, people. Long hours. Shady missions. Morally dubious choices that will keep you up at night, eating at your soul from the inside out. On the plus side, you will be assigned a catsuit and they make your ass look great.”
"After the whole Hydra incident, everyone who was sorted into Slytherin in Pottermore is officially banned from recruitment … what do you mean that’s not a rigorous personality test."
ARE YOU KIDDING ME.
ARE. YOU. KIDDING ME.
DC is being all gritty and “realistic” and Marvel just had a movie where the galaxy is saved by a dance-off and the power of friendship
102 YEARS AGO
THEY’RE ALL SKELETONS FIGHTING IN THE UNDERWATER SKELETON WAR NOW
I’m sure they are very chill right now.
You might even say they’re…
ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT ALRIGHT
alternatively if someone asks you what you did today just grimly look down at your hands and say “something I should have done a long time ago…”
