Imagine Charles walking in on Erik having a princess dress up tea party with six year old Jean and seven year old Ororo.
erik got ambushed by an emergency tea party on his way to meet charles and even supervillians know that when a kid hands you a plastic cup and tells you it has tea in you drink it
Do I even read 6 webcomics? -thinks for a second- YES I DO
6. The Little Unknown which is a webcomic by deviantart user Biali is amazing. It’s a story that takes place on a world with two species, one giant, and technologically savvy, and one small gifted with magic. There is a fascinating history, and a even more fascinating future on this world!
5. Sally Sprocket and Piston Pete is one I recommend to all you Girl Genius lovers. Victorian Steampunk adventures of an android and his cyborg deputy! (yes, android and cyborg. He is entirely mechanical, and made her when he found a nearly dead girl at the sight of a terrible accident!). OH I love it so much.
Like girl genius there is great diversity of characters and representation!
4. Ensign Sue Must Die want a webcomic that makes fun of and at the same time praises fandom while being a whole adventure centered around the concept of the Mary Sue? Well this hilarious star trek parody comic is the one for you! The art is SO CUTE and every moment is so clever.
3. Narbonic/Skin-Horse. I am listing these as one because they are in the same world, Narbonic is over, and it should be read before skin-horse. ANOTHER ONE THAT GIRL GENIUS FANS SHOULD READ. the writers/artist are friends with the girl genius folks. The stories of both webcomics have themes of mad science.
Narbonic centers around evil/mad scientist Helen Narbon and the crazy adventures she and her henchmen, intern Mell Kelly and tech-hand Dave Davenport.
Skin-Horse is about secret agents dealing with the creations of mad science and the scientists. Serving them welfare to be exact. SUPER SECRET SOCIAL SERVICES.
Written as daily strips, complete with a near daily gag, they still have amazing story-lines and huge overarching plots. No comics on sundays! special sunday features instead.
Alone they aren’t that long, but combined they make a webcomic that has been going continuously since the year 2000. but it’s only one small strip per day.
2. Homestuck. I don’t need to link y’all to it. “Let me tell you about homestuck” hahaha. There is a reason it’s hard to explain/summarize. It’s Hella long, hella hard to read, with a plot in which events are so interconnected that by setting up the story for you by saying “four friends play a game that causes the end of the world and need to play the game to create a new universe to propagate humanity” I would be lying about what actually happened/s oh god time travel involved ok. but if you can read it you should because it’s an amazing story told in the most novel format i’ve ever come across. if you can’t read it on the site because of the format, there are Let’s Reads on youtube that are wonderful!
AND COMING IN AT #1 IS….
#1 GIRL GENIUS
the first webcomic I ever read and still my favorite.
It’s another long one WE JUST GOT TO ACT II AFTER NEARLY 12 YEARS!
The art and story and characters hook you so fast you don’t realize it.
The world is run by mad scientists fighting for power, and the history and culture is shaped by this. The main character is Agatha, heir to one particularly mad family, and very talented mad genius. there are so many reasons you should read this comic I can’t list them here!
And look at this art
OH I FORGOT LEYLINES
I don’t really know how to describe that one. it’s a magical/political adventure with a really interesting world and history.
Zesting the skin of a citrus fruit like oranges releases a spray of tiny oil droplets. Citrus oil has several volatile components, meaning that it evaporates quickly at room temperature. It is also a liquid with a relatively low flash point, meaning that only modest temperatures (~40-60 degrees Celsius) are needed to generate enough vapor to ignite a vapor/air mixture. With volatile and flammable liquid fuels, a spray of droplets is an ideal platform for combustion because the essentially spherical droplets have a high surface area from which they can evaporate and provide vaporous fuel.

The 2014 Nobel Prizes for the sciences have been announced!
Physiology and Medicine: Awarded to John O’Keefe, May-Britt Moser, and Edvard Moser for their discovery of the brain’s “internal GPS”, a network of cells that helps us navigate and orient in space.
Physics: Awarded to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano, Shuji Nakamura for the invention of blue LED lights, which have led to multiple energy-saving illumination technologies.
Chemistry: Awarded to Eric Betzig, Stefan Hell, William Moerner for the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy, which allows scientists to observe cellular functions at resolutions beyond the range of traditional microscopes.
Hmmmm… Up top you’ll find a video I made last year about the past, present, and future of the Nobel Prizes. This year’s crop of Laureate scientists are all worthy winners, but do the prizes still stink of sexism? Do they perpetuate the myth of genius? Watch the video and let me know: What do you think?
“Evolution doesn’t care about you past your reproductive age. It doesn’t want you either to live longer or to die, it just doesn’t care. From the standpoint of natural selection, an animal that has finished reproducing and performed the initial stage of raising young might as well be eaten by something, since any favorable genetic quality that expresses later in life cannot be passed along.” Because a mutation that favors long life cannot make an animal more likely to succeed at reproducing, selection pressure works only on the young.What Happens When We All Live to 100? - The Atlantic (via wildcat2030)
