Hi im Katherine and this is the blog that has consumed my life. I have a bazillion fandoms that change alot but some of the main ones right now are Star trek, Pokemon, Doctor who, Supernatural, Fall out boy, Nerdfighteria, Welcome to night vale, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones. Also feminism is pretty great. I hope we can be friends!
the year is 64089. we are all still blogging about fall out boy. every 100 years we hold a ritual where we all meet up and cry while listening to what a catch. we have survived 9 world wars. we are the only humans left in existence. because believers never die.
Nancy Wake, who has died in London just before her 99th birthday, was a New Zealander brought up in Australia. She became a nurse, a journalist who interviewed Adolf Hitler, a wealthy French socialite, a British agent and a French resistance leader. She led 7,000 guerrilla fighters in battles against the Nazis in the northern Auvergne, just before the D-Day landings in 1944. On one occasion, she strangled an SS sentry with her bare hands. On another, she cycled 500 miles to replace lost codes. In June 1944, she led her fighters in an attack on the Gestapo headquarters at Montlucon in central France.
Ms Wake was furious the TV series [later made about her life] suggested she had had a love affair with one of her fellow fighters. She was too busy killing Nazis for amorous entanglements, she said.
Nancy recalled later in life that her parachute had snagged in a tree. The French resistance fighter who freed her said he wished all trees bore “such beautiful fruit.” Nancy retorted: “Don’t give me that French shit.”
