Full credit to my beta and partner-in-crime [archiveofourown.org profile] deadpooltheimmortalredshirt, who originated most of these late last night:

1. Bruce Banner can’t get tenure.

2. Peter Parker dates an arachnophobe.

3. Thor the meter maid uses Mjolnir as a boot, but he also helpfully jump-starts people's cars with his lightning hands.

4. Vision gets a virus.

5. Groot gets lost on Earth, hides in botanical garden, and scares the ever-living shit out of visitors.

6. Zola didn't die in the bunker. He just became king of the Twitter-bots.

The acclaimed _Goblin Emperor_ is on sale for 1.99! The link below includes lots & lots of sites & formats.

This book is so good, I read it twice in the same year. Compelling world-building, & one of the kindest main characters ever. *insert incoherent, euphoric squee-ing here*

Well, that takes care of reading matter for my next flight.

*heads off to share the love*
