Thank you for dismissing Trump as the little boy that he is.

Thank you for showing such dignity in such difficult circumstances.

Thank you for standing strong in the face of bigotry.

Friday Fics Fix - Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist... Father

'“Alright kiddie, time for you to open your eyes… you’re really starting to freak me out.” he tapped Peters cheek lightly. “C’mon lets see those brown eyes, I know you got them.”

After another minute of face tapping and Tony hyperventilating, Peter opened his bloodshot, unfocused eyes, and gazed blearily up at his mentor.'

Let's indulge in the cuteness of Tony Stark being a parent-figure to Peter Parker this week, shall we?

Because I really wanted him to be more fatherly and less of a hypocritical douche in Spider-Man: Homecoming.

And because Tom Holland as Peter Parker is the right mix of cute, awkward, and awesome.

Nerd Church - Don't Get Distracted By Shiny Balls

(Warning: this post contains details of the persecution of LGBTQ+ people, and references to the war in Syria, and the novichok poisoning incidents.)

Russia. At the moment there are balls flying everywhere.

And the media seems to have largely forgotten that Russia* has repeatedly had their names entered in the Naughty Book.**

Because they've really been doing a lot of sh** lately.

And we can't forget about that just because your team are kicking a ball around.

*By which I mean the Russian government and regime, not normal Russian citizens/people.

**Did you guys have a 'Naughty Book' and a 'Good Book' in infants/primary school? 😅 There was no bigger threat than having your name put in the Naughty Book! It had a frowny face on the cover and everything!

Friday Fics Fix - The Future Is Weird (Ft. Harry Potter)

'The tall Death Eater was wearing a shirt that said, 'Hermione Has Forgotten How To Dance,' so Hermione dipped his face in mud.'

OK, so this week's fic is a little bit different.

It's def. on the strange side, but there's a reason for that!

And all will be revealed *mysterious hand motions*

(I don't know what mysterious hand motions are either, just go with it.)
