What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
Ive added the Source of this quote for those who are interested.
If there is one thing I have learned in graduate school,it is that our generation should be angry, we should be FUCKING PISSED, because the generation of MY parents (who are older than most of yours) and my grand parents,squandered our future, the end of WWII came and the men in charge looked around and went, well shit. we like being rich! Let’s keep going!, and built an economy based on continual growth, and debt, and sure like any political social issue there is SO much more than that, but that was a big damn stone in the avalanche of shit that has slowly been working its way toward us, because the entire fucking system was doomed from the start, because EVERYTHING is finite., resources, are,finite, which means there has been a ticking clock on the entire fucking system from the get go, I don’t think it will implode quickly, change doesn’t really work like that, there won’t be an apocalypse, just an increasing in disparity as things we took for granted get more and more expensive, a rise in class strata in countries where classism has been - if not absent - then certainly moderate, gradually we’ll continue to get major shifts in weather patterns which will affect crop growth which will affect prices, which will increase the divide between the haves and have notes, HOPEFULLY world birth rates will decline significantly …but of course all those economies based on continual growth will suffer if they do, lower birth rates means fewer consumers (you get the picture), And the biggest problem is that there is no ONE single way to ‘fix’ it, because its not JUST about economic reform, or religion and hard conversations about birth control and a sustainable population, its about a million factors and variables that need to change.

Here’s the deal, man: I’d watch this character do ANYTHING.
You know, like at the end of the Avengers movie and they are just sitting around, eating… I’d watch H.G. Wells eat a sandwich. Or I’d watch her figure out various technological inventions (I mean, she’s sharp as a tack but the woman was blown-away by post-it notes… Watching her discover the world would be like watching puppies play, it would be ADORABLE)
Oh. And I’d watch her enjoy a shower. And not just because I am incredibly attracted to a fictional person (though that does account for, like, 90% of it this) but because there were no showers in the 1800s and hot water had to served up by your maid and I bet Helena takes hour-long showers.
Mmmm. Someone write me a shower-fic.
This. ^ ALL OF IT.
#We Need a day in the life themed episode #where we see HG on a day off#pottering around trying to work the appliances #and marvelling at inanimate objects #while Myka stands by shaking her head saying #you adorable dork
Why thank you for that plot bunny. *makes a note*
It all started with the Internet. Helena finds it usually does these days. No matter how strongly she denies it in the presence of, well, everyone except possibly herself on occasion, she loves it. It’s a thousand libraries and motion pictures and facts and fiction all thrown together into a carousel of knowledge and make-believe and straight out lunacy. Come to think of it, it’s rather like the masquerade balls she used to attend in London, but with less glamour and, if possible, more perversions.
This is a small piece of smut in involving a strap-on, Bering and Wells style. You have been warned. Though I doubt that will make you look away, pervlings ;)
Thanks to the wonderful sydneygirl1903 for helping me keep my commas in check, and for being my very own Helena.
HOLY STRAP-ON. This is GORGEOUS.
