    The niece of the great Mongol leader, Kubla Khan, Princess Khutulun was described by Marco Polo as the greatest warrior in Khan’s army. She told her uncle she would marry any man who could wrestle her and win. If they lost they had to give her 100 horses.

    She died unmarried with 10,000 horses.

    This is how I want to die. Unmarried, with 10,000 horses. There is no other way now.

    Rich and alone is a perfectly good way to go.

    Cutest Thor Ever via Mary Sue.

    This is adorable!

    I AM GOING TO ACQUIRE THIS CHILD AND LOVE HER

    THIS MIDGARDIAN CHILD HIS GOOD TASTE!  METHINKS PERHAPS WE ARE SEEING A FUTURE FEMALE WARRIOR!

    My head canon is that each of the Avengers ends up with core group of fangirl/boys, like Natasha’s (or the one she acknowledges) are teenage girls mainly who see her as their hero, little boys love the Hulk, but Thor? Little girls between like the ages of 4 and 10, cause dude he is a Prince, who rides on a rainbow bridge, and is basically the fairy tale prince in real life. And Thor fucking loves it. His room at the Tower is just plastered with drawings they send him, and he tries as hard as he can to respond to each and every letter he gets. 

    HEADCANON ACCEPTED.

    And Clint and Tony would try to tease Thor about it but he’s just so proud of all his little fangirls and of the drawings and other things they send him and he’s so earnest about it that Clint and Tony end up more than a little jealous.

    I AM SO OKAY WITH THIS IDEA

    and oh man I just picture him meeting one of his little baby fans and they have their own little baby mjolnir and he asks her if she’d like to hold the real one, and her eyes get all big because what?? only thor can hold mjolnir! she knows that!! So he crouches down next to her, gently holding her hand as it holds mjolnir so that even though he’s the one holding the weight, she gets to feel like she’s actually the one holding the hammer and her eyes go half as big as her whole head as grins all big and he tells her ”clearly you are worthy, little warrior!”

    STOP IT

    MY POOR HEART

    I completely adore the volume on this skirt.

    There’s a whole rant I am not going to write here on how dresses I think are pretty are not considered appropriate day-wear, but anyway. I love the raggedness, the pink that shows most in the shadow…

    Looks like a rough day in storyland, but it’s a moody, evocative one, too…
