fancast: sharlto copley as older!Henry VII

During his last six years of life, Henry VII became a virtual recluse and his bad reputation for miserliness and paranoia became markedly worse after the death of his Queen.
With Elizabeth’s burial, the lights went out all over Henry’s court ; the reign was plunged into crisis and Henry, shattered, would never be the same again. Rarely visible, he seemed not to want to be seen. For people who caught a glimpse of him, hollow-cheeked, blue eyes burning fiercely, he seemed more dead than alive. Illness seemed to provoke even further his fierce obsession with control.

— The Winter King, by Thomas Penn

The 100 for meme?

this will be long and have more than 5 things tbh

and i just realised that this will make it seem like i hate the 100 which isn’t really true. the show is just like the child who is really dirty all the time and you try to clean them up, but they just go outside and throw themselves into the mud again

1. finn is alive and his entire season 2 storyline is rewritten so that we have an accurate portrayal of ptsd in war, as well as him doing it ‘only for clarke’ is erased and focuses on him wanting to find all his friends that have been captured instead of this lame ass attempt at a romeo and juliet-esque tragedy we got. he could’ve been something great in season 2, but they screwed that up big time. to have the most peaceful and human character do a completely 180 and fucking break in half is not something that should just be swept under a rug with ‘ok now he’s dead let’s have peace’. he could’ve lived and they could’ve given him the rest of the season(s) to live with the guilt of what he had done instead.

1b. the show shouldn’t ignore finn’s intelligence when tristan says ‘we only need one to take back to the council bla bla bla’ and by then he should’ve been able to put two and two together and realise the grounders didn’t have the rest of the 100, which kinda would’ve erased all of the above, guess the writers weren’t that smart about that. (thanks miranda babe i am now furious again)

2. have the other characters contribute something in season two, other than clarke. when i say this i’m not saying that they haven’t done anything. that’s not true and i know that. i would just have liked to see the other characters come up with something, anything, other than this whole ‘what would clarke do’ business. i’m not saying that it’s not refreshing to see clarke conquer when we’ve seen so many ‘white boys destined for glory’ before. but she’s almost become god like, where there’s no possible way for anyone else to come up with a plan. octavia could’ve gone to the grounders, seeing as she is the only one to respect and accept the grounders and their culture, for starters. there were great character arcs in season 1 and now i just feel that clarke has 89% of the eps and all the other characters has to share the remaining 11%. raven has barely had anything to do this season besides sitting by a radio, come on. this girl deserves better! bellamy has honestly not done a thing from 2x01-2x09. 

3. more monty. that’s honestly it for this one. monty is awesome. more monty!

4. have jaha die in the season 1 finale. because now… yeah. i don’t see the point of him right now tbh. sure, the city of light could’ve been interesting, but the way he is just rubs me the complete wrong way. 

5. have jasper die in the pilot and this goes back to nr3 because monty deserves more screentime than jasper imho. monty is more useful, funnier, nicer and a better character. that’s how i feel, anyway.

6. not have murphy do a 180 and become mr nice-and-friendly-and-i-just-wanna-be-loved-guy. i don’t think it’s believable and i find it so fucking weird that 1, they all forgive him and 2, that it’s not considered ooc? like? he peed on a black man he quite frankly treated like a slave? he planned out two murders? and killed them? and tried to kill bellamy and shot raven? and one day later he’s crying in front of raven and is telling her his whole sad life story?? i’m?????? it does not make sense. at least not in ep1. i would’ve considered accepting it right about now in the end of the season. maybe…

7. have the grounders be portrayed as less savage than what they are now. it’s something that’s been bothering me. sure, in some ways i can accept it, like with the mountain men putting them in cages, to treat human people like beasts, like nothing more to be used and tossed aside is… it’s horrifying. but they could tell the story better. get the grounders perspectives other than them wanting to fight all the time. the only ones who have shown respect and understanding towards the grounders, imo, are octavia and finn. that’s not enough. they treat lincoln like an animal in 1x07, and then he’s the gentle savage saved by the white savior in octavia. (this is also something you should read about this)

8. anya should be alive. i don’t care that it would’ve been ‘too easy’ then. it wouldn’t. the grounders still wouldn’t have trusted the arkers and the other way around. what we would have was a grounder who could’ve told her people first hand what they did to their people inside the mountain and the grounders then would’ve had a reason to even consider working together with the arkers. then it would’ve made sense.

9. kinda wished they would acknowledge that bellamy is poc, but what can you do.

Shadcanon: Maria and her Cuddle'hog

Back in the day when Maria was still alive, and Shadow at her side, the two would often seem to be inseparable. As he grew older, he began to let that ‘Ultimate’ lifeform name go to his head, as Maria’s attempts to clutch him close and snuggle and cuddle were met more and more with a squirming hedgehog.

He didn’t want to look ‘soft’ or ‘weak’ in the eyes of Gerald, or anyone else. But deep down he thoroughly loved cuddling with Maria.

Now with it years and years since the ‘incident’ that took his beloved Maria away, he curses himself for all the times he would fight away her attempts of gathering him into her arms, because never again will he have that chance arrive.

That being said, cuddling to Shadow, is one of his deepest signs of affection thanks to Maria. It taught him that he could let his guard down, that things could be taken slow and steady, and that not everything was out to kill him or stick him with a needle.

*9 times out of 10, cuddling ends with him falling asleep.


"I’ve said before that Arrow is at its best when it is addressing Oliver’s serious mental health issues — the trauma he is still not and will probably never be over, and how the coping mechanism he used to stay alive are now keeping him from living. Seeing these characters call Oliver out with the show’s backing does this. Starting with Felicity’s heartbreaking, but dramatically wonderful ‘I don’t want to be a woman you love’ speech, this show seems to be getting back on its feet when it comes to this more complex characterization of Oliver Queen."

"The Return" recap from GenreTV

MTMTE #15: questions

The more I think about the famous dramatic scene from MTMTE #15, the more it seems illogical to me. Why the hell Chromedome decided to shoot at the cell? He says to Fort Max (who didn’t seem to get hurt at all during the fight): “I’m doing the only thing I can do." Not "we have to save Rewind" or "we have to get him back" or anything like this.

What if Overlord’s first instinct after getting trapped wasn’t killing/torturing Rewind? And even if he did torture him - Rewind could still be alive when the rescue team would come. Lots of mech on the “Lost Light” have been wounded/injured, but not all of them - there are more than a hundred mecha onboard and Rewind seems to be liked by everyone. Why wouldn’t Chromedome want to at least try to save him? Why was the mercy kill the first and only idea that came to his mind?

It seems to me larry was dead before night came does that mean he will die in the morning again????

*They have decided to give up the game before Larry gets even more injured, but vow to come back and finish it one day.*

Ahkmenrah: *Reads the question and sobers quickly.* No, he was not dead. Even though he should have been, the tablet was keeping him alive. *Shrugs* It is connected to me in many ways, and probably sensed that I would not want Larry to die. *Takes Larry’s hand again.* He will be perfectly alive in the morning.

Larry: *Nods* Yup. And the magic can’t effect Cecil, cause he’s not in the museum anymore. So we’re good; he’s not coming back. 

Nick: Good, that guy gives me the creeps.

Larry: He gives everyone the creeps. He’s creepy. Reeeaaaaaaaal creepy. 

*Ahk and Nick look over to see Larry staring intently at the ceiling.*

Ahkmenrah: *Holding back laughter* Very true. 

Nick: *Giggles.*

reylannister asked:

ayo! I was wondering your thoughts on Edmund kemper? I've been reading more and more on him, he's quite interesting

Kemper’s case is a pretty interesting one in my opinion, as he seems pretty self-aware of himself and states that “he wasn’t proud” that he wanted to kill his own mother. He definitely had early warning signs, I think at one point he buried his pet cat alive, and stabbed another. He narrated books for the blind as well which is very interesting, it’s weird to think that someone who committed such horrible crime can do something so compassionate lol. Thanks for the ask!

#I have a lot of feels #sorry #but I don't talk about renard a lot and there's a lot in my head - oh realllly? care to share some of your renard headcanons?

I would love to, darling.  I’m getting sleepy but here’s a little:

Renard is an orphan, and has no memories of his parents.  He doesn’t really think about them anymore, though he did when he was a child he would imagine that they had loved him and died saving him from a fire, or he’d been kidnapped and they didn’t know how to find him.  As he got older he decided there were two options; they were dead or they were alive and didn’t want him.  The second seemed more likely.

He grew up learning that there were two ways to prove you were a man; being able to overpower others, and sex with women.  Even from a young age he was able to hold his own in a fight.  He was twelve when he had sex with a girl from the village.  She thought it meant something.  He was pretty cruel in disabusing her of that notion.

Sex for the most part was either for physical pleasure or for getting information, and it was rare that he slept with someone more than once.  He has, a few times, slept with men for information.  He was not attracted to them, but neither was he disgusted.

There are very few people in the world he cares about at all.  His value on human life in general is pretty low.  Sex does not have an emotional component at all until it does.  He’s never loved anyone like he loves Belle, and his love is overwhelming.  He would die for her, kill for her, or try to do neither.  Try to be a man that she wants him to be.  Or, in movie canon it’s Electra he loves so completely that he will kill himself to give her what she wants.  Either way his feeling as so intense it’s like all the love he never felt for anyone for years is focused on one person.

Sophie is HIS and if you hurt his daughter he will literally tear you apart.  

Renard is a name that was given to him after he killed a man.  The police found the man in his own panic room.  Renard is clever, like a fox, and the whispers about the new young assassin were that the name fit.

And it’s 3 am so I better stop there for tonight.

kingraqnar replied to your post:Its quite disgusting that people are appropriating…

people talking abt how ‘romantic’ he is. romanticism doesn’t keep you alive in battle and through winter lol

Its also not his primary pursuit, as he said he wants power. I think he’s a great character and complex but it seems like people try to dumb characters down through shipping. This is mainly why i’m an anti-shipper. I do want him to be with Thorunn but it’s hardly an impulse. He’s a viking in the end..he goes on raiding but he needs to figure out why. Ragnar and Lagertha both just want farm land where as Bjorn is still unsure.

anonymous asked:

What do you think about Daryl right now? :/

"Think" of him? Uh I mean as a character he had one line in the last episode so okay. In terms of his mental state, I actually hope the torment continues. I love the guy, but his mourning moment I felt was so important so show the impact Beth really had on him. I think his new attitude based on that loss kind of keeps her memory alive. Obviously I want him to be Daryl but I want the idea of loosing people to be more apparent than it seems to be sometimes. Sometimes I feel like a character dies and its really sad and two episodes later its glazed over. Idk. Idk if that was an answer haha. Tbh I feel like he has lost everyone and detached from the rick bromance and carol bromance so I’m not sure where he is headed. 

It really shows on my relationship when I am going thorugh a personal crisis.
Im having an hard-to-sleep-month. It means that I go to bed the same time as M, but I don’t fall asleep until several hours after. And in the day I am staying alive by drinking massive ammounts of coffee and Celsius. And then at night I am awake again. Like right now.

But I think we’re going through a crisis anyway. I am in denial. I can’t talk to him. I don’t know why and it’s killing me. I try but I can’t seem to get the right words out. He gets frustrated, I get even more frustrated and the evil stone is rolling into somwhere where I don’t want it to roll.

Eventually he walks away until I calm down, and then I ignore why I was angry in the first place beacuse the discussions we have are leading nowhere.

To put it in clichés:

I feel like I’m putting a band-aid on a bullet wound.

It feels like I’m putting out a forrest fire with my own spit.

It feels like I’m peeing with the wind going towards me.

It feels like peeling an orange with my butt.

It feels like my world is collapsing.

It feels like this is the end of the road.

The biggest reason why I want to cry all the time is because I always know what to say. I rarely know what to do, but always what to say. I have an answer to everything.

But now I can’t say anything.

The one thing I had going for me is slowly going up in flames.

And I don’t know why.

February 16, 2015. I was in a bad wreck with my grandfather today. The weather and roads were bad and he lost control of the truck, and it ran off the side of the road and flipped. It doesn’t seem real. As much pain as I’m in physically and emotionally. It doesn’t seem real and I don’t want it to be. I don’t know how or why I’m alive right now, but I’m thankful for it. However, my grandfather wasn’t so lucky. He passed away due to the crash. He wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, and, what most likely saved my life, could’ve saved his. I miss him more and more every second. I wish I could turn back time. He was the strongest and best man I’ve ever known. He’s been there since before I was born and I can’t believe he’s gone. I loved him more than anything, he was like my father, and was always there, especially when my dad couldn’t be there for me. I miss you Papaw and I love you so much❤️
For anyone reading this. Please stay safe, don’t go out in bad weather, and please please, no matter the weather, take every precaution to stay safe. Wear your seatbelt, what may be irritating for a few minutes, could save your life in the long run.
I..suppose that’s all I have to say. I’m hurting so much and can’t sleep. I just need all the support I can get right now.
