Autism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.
Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.
“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

This dress is cotton with silk embroidery - which just goes to show how spectacular an “average” material can become.
Regimes fall everyday. I tend not to weep over that. I’m Russian. Or I was.

The Avengers as a Western
Steve is the Sheriff. Clint is his deputy. Tony is the Blacksmith. Natasha runs the Saloon. Bruce is the physician with a split personality and Thor gets into a hell of a lot of tavern brawls.
Together, however, they manage to bring order to the once corrupt town of Triskelion.
Remember The Avengers as a 70s Cop Drama? A Western might be cooler.
Wolverine as the rancher who is a retired gunslinger.

You know Harry’s a pretty humble guy but you can bet your ass he brags all the fucking time about his friends and family. He probably does it every time someone tries to talk to him about his accomplishments. Like “oh my gosh, you’re Harry Potter-” “yeah I am but have you heard about my sister in law Hermione? She was just featured in Witch weekly as number one in top 30 witches under 30 for her work regarding magical creatures rights” “How does it feel to be the Departments youngest ever head auror?” “I mean it feels like any other job, but did you hear about my wife getting first string for england’s world cup team this year?” “how-” “do you want to see pictures of my kids? my youngest just started Hogwarts. another slytherin but we couldn’t be prouder. she’s going to take the world by storm.”
Like super proud and supportive of his family Harry
