death of the author: the author’s intentions don’t matter so i can interpret this thing however i want to
theft of the author: i will take a hammer to the author’s intentions and FIX the canon
death of the author is all well and good but i myself prefer to acknowledge the author’s intentions just so i can take everything i thought was stupid and improve it so that it supports my own personal, superior interpretation of events to spite them
today i got an unusual compliment about how pretty my eyes are (literally never been told that before in my life) and it got me thinking SO in the tags will you reblog: the thing(s) you are most complimented on AND the most unusual/bizarre compliment(s) you’ve gotten

not to be fake deep about Minecraft on main but. anyone else ever get the feeling that Minecraft is a post-post-apocalyptic sort of world that, with each update, is starting to heal? we start with skeletons and zombies and giant spiders and weird mutated things, but life slowly returns - scary things live in the ocean, yes, but coral reefs came back, diverse fish populations returned, there are dolphins and squids and stuff. in 1.16 the nether goes from a blighted hellscape to still terrifying, but a place that can sustain life. there’s new types of trees, animals, flowers, bees were added. basically the Minecraft game universe feels like a place that, with each update, is healing from something terrible, and that’s just neat
#TBT to 1989 when Voyager 2 spotted Uranus looking like a seemingly perfect robin’s egg. 💙
When our Voyager 2 spacecraft flew by it in this image, one pole was pointing directly at the Sun. This means that no matter how much it spins, one half is completely in the sun at all times, and the other half is in total darkness..
Far-flung, Uranus – an ice giant of our solar system – is as mysterious as it is distant. Soon after its launch in 2021, our James Webb Space Telescope will change that by unlocking secrets of its atmosphere.
