This is a wonderfully written Thor fan fiction. Written by my darling Wife Biolumo (http://biolumo.tumblr.com/).

The lead character is Ada, a intelligent Linguistic Major and best friend to Jane (Thor’s girlfriend) who is kidnapped by Loki and is taken to Asgard. Soon we find that Ragnarok threatens and Loki has his reasons for bringing Ada along for the ride.

Do check it out, it is SO addictive!

A British Suffragette.
Around 1910.
It seems really striking to me that as far as I know, nothing seems to have been put out there to remember all that these women did 100 years ago. Maybe people are waiting for the centenary of the vote being given to women, I’m not sure. In Britain this will be in 2018, for the anniversary of partial suffrage for women.

No age lives entirely alone; every civilisation is formed not merely by its own achievements but by what it has inherited from the past. If these things are destroyed, we have lost a part of our past, and we shall be the poorer for it.
