The Hopeful Bluestocking

collecting hope: ideas, thoughts, quotations, and other such INTP-ish things.

Apocalyptic dreams of pre-nuclear explostion/attack are not what I prefer to wake up from… Nothing actually happened but it was sure about to.



sometimes i forget that the marvel universe is actually fictional

“Her mother likes to say that novels have ruined Amelia for real men. This observation insults Amelia because it implies that she only reads books with classically romantic heroes. She does not mind the occasional novel with a romantic hero but her reading tastes are far more varied than that. Furthermore, she adores Humbert Humbert as a character while accepting the fact that she wouldn’t really want him for a life partner9, a boyfriend, or even a casual acquaintance. She feels the same way about Holden Caulfield, and Misters Rochester and Darcy.”

On one hand, yes, thank you, reading novels doesn’t mean your worldview gets worse, on the contrary.

On the other hand I’m confused: WHO WOULDN’T WANT DARCY AS THEIR BFF???

I was just trying to wrap my brain around throwing Darcy in with Humbert Humbert, Holden Caulfield, and Rochester. Pffft, Darcy is an awesome friend.

“You never get to the point where you think “I am the adult”, but you do get to the point where you think “I’ve dealt with this before.” The older you get, the higher and higher the percentage is of things you’ve already been through. Have you ever changed a tire? Had a flat tire? Someday, you might, and the next time it happens, you’ll know what to do, since you’ve already done it.”

—   My dad. I’m 24, and asked if you ever shake the feeling of not being an adult, and this was his response. Probably the most comforting thing he could have said. (via splitterherzen)

A weird thing I find incredibly helpful for art/writing.


deadcantdraw: is a website that sells blueprints for houses. 

This might not seem that helpful but if you want a characters house you can make selections based on what sort of house you want them to live in. 


Then browse through the results and find the house you want. Then you can view the blueprints and have a room layout for that house, which can help with visualising the space they live in. 


It makes describing generic homes so much easier.

thank you

There is a universe inside

where I hang, 

suspended in the crowded void,

torn between the stars and planets and blazing comets.
