Look I’m not saying that I want the climax of Avengers: Age of Ultron to be Melinda May calmly walking into the screen with Mjolhnir in one hand and the Beserker Staff in the other hand, in a situation where all hope is lost; and then calmly throwing both away and just…

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

My library card already gets me multiple “real” books, e-books, audiobooks, magazines and movies per month. For free.

Kindle Unlimited offers nothing from big presses, and no guarantee the authors will get paid fairly for their work. Libraries buy the book up front for a higher price (and a better binding). Kindle Unlimited offers the authors a variable percentage of a as-yet-undetermined-and-unannounced amount of money. 
While Amazon touts Kindle Unlimited at “Netflix For Books!” the reality is Netflix signed contracts with everyone whose work they offer so that actors, screen writers, best boys, and the rest of those people get paid for the shows and movies you watch. Amazon does not.
That means your favorite author isn’t being compensated for their time or work. If you love a book series and want to see the next one get published: buy the book or hit the library. Starving authors quit writing because they like eating. 

I couldn’t hit the reblog button fast enough.

So much reblog.

  • Me: I ship these two women together so hard.
  • Person: You just want to see them kiss.
  • Me: No. I want to see them be friends. I want to see them slowly fall in love. I want to see them get giggly and flirt and blush and get flustered. I want them to go on an awkward first date and wait for the other's call. I want them to date. I want to see them go through hard times, but love each other enough to get through it together. I want them to fight and make up. I want them to get engaged and nervously tell their parents. I want them to argue over the wedding plans, but ultimately decide together. I want to see them get married. I want to see them have kids. I want to see them grow old together. Overall, I want to see their love story, and if they happen to kiss and I see, that's just an added bonus.
