"i wish i was born in the 90s" says the young girl. suddenly, her surroundings change- french flags fly above and around her, crowds are cheering. it is france, 1793. the king is dead. long live the revolution.
Up til now, the script had called for Alana having lasagna with Hannibal. I got my first clue there would be a thigh roasting when I heard my phone chirping just after midnight as I’m on my way home. It’s Bryan Fuller asking cheerfully, “Hi Everyone! We would like to so a Braised Roast of Eddie Izzard’s thigh. This shoots Friday (tomorrow). Any interesting tidbits about history of roast…or anecdote…? What can we do with a whole joint – bone and all…”
Jose Andres, our food consultant in DC, replies with a suggestion of cooking the roast in clay so Hannibal can lecture Gideon about man being made of clay and returning to clay. It’s 1 o’clock in the morning."
Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…
When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.
Dreamboat, check, awesome human being, check.

LETS PLAY THE “TYPE THESE WORDS IN YOU R TAG BOX AND POST THE FIRST AUTOMATIC TAG THAT COMES UP” GAME: DIRTY WORD ADDITION OK
man thinking about that post like
social justice warriors are sometimes the leeroy jenkins, they rush right in usually without buffs, without enough equipment, and probably in misguided and counterproductive ways but their hearts are usually in the right place so everyone who rushes in after them to try and back their asses up usually also gets wiped. refined warriors can usually manage aggro while tailoring their skills to fit the situation, but they gotta be careful.
social justice rangers (sup) occasionally have that One Post that resonated with a lot of people but most of the time they stand back and take potshots at easy targets. rangers are pretty good at getting to the point (if i do say so myself) but prefer to back up the party than to wander into the thick of the mob.
social justice paladins are righteous folks and they can take a lot of punishment, specifically baiting oppressive assholes to keep the attention off their more fragile party members. or they dash right in and start slugging away to draw aggro away from said fragile party members. damn, tanks are cool.
social justice monks are like the spiritual leaders, they’re versatile and wise. maybe a bit older than the usual demographic, they’re pretty zen, their blogs are usually about everyday things and they tend to have a lot of experience. they hold their own communities accountable but will wander into the fray, taking up whichever role needs to be taken.
social justice wizards are fucking cool. wide-reaching AoE and tons of damage, posts with like, tens of thousands of notes, they’re usually buffered against the backlash by tanks and backed up by the rangers. broad, widely-applicable statements suited for many circumstances. everyone wants to be their friend.
social justice rogues are those people who run fandom or hipster blogs who you never expect to give a shit about social justice but they follow a couple wizards and once in a while they’ll pop in, drop a bomb, and then flit away into the darkness. maybe they lose a couple followers, but man were they good at luring those fuckers into complacency. rogues are fuckin hilarious (and awesome) to see in action.
and social justice clerics are those absolute sweethearts who stay out of the line of fire but support and encourage the front line (as it were). whenever the tanks and DPS get worn down, the clerics drop in with a healing spell, maybe some HoTs and buffs. when they do draw the attention of mobs, they’re usually helpless because they’re TOO DAMN NICE and have far too much hope in humanity and just keep tryna cast healing spells on everyone. protect clerics at all costs.
THAT’S MY POST. THAT IS MY POST AND I AM SO PROUD OF HOW FAR IT’S GONE, LOOKING AT THIS RIGHT NOW. SHEDS A FEW PROUD PARENTAL TEARS
Anthony Mackie being the first black superhero (and making Bill O’Reilly uncomfortable) on Jimmy Fallon (x)
Things you don’t want to hear when you’ve spent the last hour getting wrangling a bull and getting covered in poop from head to toe, and you’re just about to wash your hands:
"Stop using that sink! Water’s just been shut off to the whole city!"
I sincerely hope it is finished before either of us dies! No but actually, I have about a month left until I present my thesis and after that the updates should become somewhat more regular. *knocks vigorously on wood*
Hey! Welcome back! It’s been hell without you.
I feel almost exactly the same way about SPN.
Fandom/fiction shouldn’t make you long term unhappy, so I wish you every happiness in future.
I was just thinking bout you an hour earlier and checking ur blog to see if you had posted recently. Good to see you backI huggle you all with great ferocity!
*kicks door in* I’M BAAAACK. And wow, not everyone unfollowed me! (Cue droves of people remembering that they still follow my sorry ass for some reason and subsequently unfollowing me).
So basically I’m back to say that I’m not back. I have a month until I present my thesis and two months until I graduate, and I’ll probably be online extremely sporadically until those things are over and done with.
Aaaand also here to say something that I waited a long time to say in case it turned out not to be true, but it’s been a while and it’s still true so I’m saying it: I think I’m pretty much done with Supernatural. It’s always been a show that I enjoyed despite all the things wrong with it, and I’ve always been fine with that, and then… quite abruptly, I was no longer fine with it. It didn’t make me happy anymore. The fandom still does make me happy, and I intend to keep writing fanfic (yes, I’ll even finish Surface Tension one of these… days… years…). But I’m not watching it anymore.
*braces self for the great unfollowing*
