a while ago i mentioned that i read a bunch of marvel fics, and how one day i was going to make the rec list to end all rec lists. but i never actually did the thing, because wow that was a lot of effort. well, as you can see, i proved myself wrong and actually made the thing happen. this includes mcu, xmen, tasm, and aos, and just about every ship imaginable. because im a huge multi-shipper. fics are sorted alphabetical order, then labeled with universe, pairing (or centric for gen fics), and whether the fic is an au, canon-divergence, canon verse, or marvel-based au.

so without any further ado:

↳ queen esther of persia

>Esther, also known as Hadassah, was a Jewish orphan living under the care of her uncle Mordecai, a servant to King Xerxes I of Persia.

When King Xerxes became displeased with his wife, Queen Vashti, he sought a new bride and commanded that every young, beautiful virgin be brought to his palace. With her great beauty, intelligence, and wit, Esther captivated the King immediately, and her chose her as his new queen, unaware that she was a Jewish exile.

Shortly after Esther was crowned as queen, her uncle Mordecai made a fatal mistake by refusing to show respect to a high official named Haman. This infuriated the arrogant Haman, who presented an order to the King to have all Jews killed, under the pretense that they were disobeying the King’s laws. The King agreed, much to Esther and Mordecai’s horror.

Determined to save her people, Esther revealed herself to the King as a Jew in an act of great courage, and declared that if he was to kill the Jewish people, he would have to kill her too.

Enraged and shocked by Haman’s wicked plan, the King repealed the decree and had the man hanged. There was great rejoicing throughout the kingdom, all in celebration of Esther’s bravery.

Hey guys! So as I’ve been posting, I’m doing my first ever non-US con this year and tabling at Thought Bubble in Leeds! As summer winds down and November, and my trip, looms nearer, I am getting more and more anxious about it, so I’m offering some limited edition shirts to help cover some of the expenses of the trip. Here’s the info I wrote for the campaign:
I’ve been tabling at cons for over 15 years now, but only within the states. Over the last few years, I’ve gained a following overseas, and have had lots of requests to do a European con, and this year I finally have a shot, but travel that far just ain’t cheap!

It’s been a dream of mine to return to Europe for years now. As a military brat, I lived in Germany as a kid and was lucky enough to visit a number of countries, but was too young to appreciate it. Now I have a chance to go back so I can table at Thought Bubble in Leeds, one of the coolest independent comic cons anywhere. My table is secured, my flight is booked, and now I’m broke. By getting a shirt, you’re helping me with other incidental costs, such as hotel, travel/train fare, food, and actually getting product to sell at the con. In the long run, I’ll ideally create a sketchbook or mini comic based on the trip, which I’ll be posting online in 2015, and the help I get through this campaign will go a long way in making that happen. This particular design will never be available on any other merchandise from me EVER, so once these shirts are done, they’re done for good, so you’ll get something something super unique in return for helping me make this happen.
I have shirts on two different sites because I wanted to offer an alternate color option because I am indecisive, ugh. I have to sell 25 of the green option, and 50 of the pink option in order to get the funds from the campaigns, so please help signal boost if you can! (Don’t worry, if I don’t sell enough shirts to meet the minimum, you won’t be charged at all).
Pink Variant available through Booster
Green Variant available through TeeSpring (this site also offers alternate shirt styles, such as tanks and hoodies)

We are not agents of nothing! We are agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and that still carries weight. It has to carry weight.

In this galaxy, there’s a mathematical probability of three million earth-type planets … and in all the universe, three million million galaxies like this one. And in all of that, and perhaps more, only one of each of us. Don’t destroy the one named Kirk.

Coulson: I understand. You made a hard call. And now, I have to make mine.

There will always be those who mean to do us harm. To stop them, we risk awakening the same evil within ourselves. Our first instinct is to seek revenge when those we love are taken from us. But that’s not who we are… When Christopher Pike first gave me his ship, he had me recite the Captain’s Oath. Words I didn’t appreciate at the time. But now I see them as a call for us to remember who we once were and who we must be again.”
