“And that was how a great scandal threatened to affect the kingdom of Bohemia, and how the best plans of Mr. Sherlock Holmes were beaten by a woman’s wit. He used to make merry over the cleverness of women, but I have not heard him do it of late. And when he speaks of Irene Adler, or when he refers to her photograph, it is always under the honourable title of the woman.”—
'A Scandal in Bohemia,' from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I totally thought I’d have time to browse the web and keep up with tumblr in the evenings after park-hopping. ….Ahahahaha. Totally underestimated how EXHAUSTING it all is. I ended up faceplanting into the mattress right away. Had a lot of fun, though!
Currently trapped at the airport at midnight, waiting for my mum’s flight to get in. She wasn’t able to be on the same flight as us. SIGH. At least I’ll have a chance to catch up on my dash.
Real people have flaws and failures. It fucking happens. We come in all sorts —strong, successful, weak, simpering, funny, terrible, assertive, smart, stupid and every other possible adjective— and it is more than okay for media to portray something other than a perfect…
Will the Avengers dresses be produced? Because I'd totally buy them all...Loki first though :)
I’d buy them too! I just have no idea to even go about doing something like that. Sorry, the dresses are basically just designs for fun, that people can get inspired by and make for themselves if they want.
