200th-birthday

Petal & Thorns outtakes
  • Juvia: So you're 197 years old?
  • Gray: Yeah
  • Juvia: Then why are you just now in high school??
  • Gray: *rolls eyes* it's not really high school, it's like us learning vampire skills that we have to master before our 200th birthday
  • Juvia: *gives him a flat look* Like mind-control and stuff?
  • Gray: *smirks* something like that

Have you heard that there's going to be a new Wuthering Heights movie in late 2017/early 2018 to celebrate Emily Brönte's 200th birthday? They've casted Paul Atlas as Heathcliff!

I have heard about that, and I have a lot of feelings about it. 

On one hand, I’m always there for a new Wuthering Heights movie. There’s almost nothing that could be done that would make me unwilling to embrace it alongside the other twenty million. 

On the other hand, I wish Heathcliff were…a bit different. Now, I don’t want to make any wild accusations because I don’t know anything more about Paul Atlas than what he lists on his acting profiles, but there’s a few things I would have preferred in the choice.

One being Avan Jogia.

Do you think I can stay to become nothing to you? Do you think I am an automaton?—a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong!—I have as much soul as you,—and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you. I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh;—it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God’s feet, equal,—as we are!

Happy 200th Birthday Julia Margaret Cameron
Pioneering Pre-Raphaelite/Victorian photographer.

Cameron was a controversial photographer, rebelling against what was seen as a good photograph in favour of a more ‘painterly’ approach, by breaking the mould she created some of the most beautiful images of the 19th Century. She was also the great-aunt of Virginia Woolf & Vanessa Bell.

Happy 200th Birthday Charlotte Bronte. Jane Eyre was my teenage favourite and my original much loved, bath crinkled and heavily annotated Penguin Classics paperback is a real bookcase treasure.

The Brontë sisters are the feminist heroes we need in 2017
Anne (Charlie Murphy), Emily (Chloe Pirrie) & Charlotte Bronte (Finn Atkins) in To Walk Invisible. Charlotte Brontë’s 200th birthday was last year, but 2017 is shaping up to be the year of the Brontë sisters regardless. Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Brontë — the sisters who lived in witchy isolation on the English moors and the authors of Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and Agnes Grey, respectively — are the subjects of Masterpiece Theatre’s biopic To Walk Invisible, which aired on PBS in February (donors of PBS member stations can stream it here).

I need a "The Office" Avengers sitcom

Just imagine it.

“You know, Clint has this habit. Whenever I see him eating food, if I ask him for it, he’ll either shove it all in his face, or hide it. Then he’ll proceed to act like he has no clue what I’m talking about,” Natasha says in a displeased voice.

Then it’ll flip to a shot of Clint siting on the couch, shoving his face with a bag of Munchos, and then Nat walks up.

“Hey, Clint, can I have one?”

Clint proceeds to pour the remaining quarter of a bag into his mouth, crumples the bag up, and shoves it under a couch cushion. With potato chips bits flying out of his mouth, he turns over to Nat and- with a mouthful -he says, “Have one of what?”

Then, with murderous rage filling her eyes, Natasha looks straight into the camera.

Or, as an alternative scenario, it’s just Tony, giving a tour of the facility. He turns a corner and points to a door labeled, “Janitor’s Closet.”

“And this, is probably the best part of the building. The janitor’s closet. You see, the janitor here at the facility, is drawing close to his 200th birthday. His name is Stan. He’s a nice enough man, but he just won’t quit. We try getting him to retire, but he keeps coming back. We’ve just embraced it. Each one of us has bets on when he’ll drop dead. I say-”

Tony stops because of a pounding on the closet door.

“Oh, well, it seems that he’s in there right now. Let’s say-”

Tony stops cold when he opens the door.

On the other side of the door, profusely making out, are the Avenger facility’s local super soldiers.

Steve, whose hands were tangled in Bucky’s long, luscious, locks, immediately stops assaulting Bucky’s lips once the door is open.

Bucky, on the other hand, whose legs were wrapped tightly around Steve’s waist, does not stop. As Steve mutters excuses on how, “It’s not what it looks like,” or, “We thought this was my bedroom,” Bucky assaults Steve’s neck. The embarrassing situation hardly getting to his head.

The stethoscope is celebrating it’s 200th birthday this year! Invented in 1816 by a young French physician, it was intended to preserve the modesty of a young female patient. Dr. Laennec was uncomfortable simply putting his ear to the woman’s chest, as was the usual practice at the time. And thus was born what has become a permanent fixture around today’s doctor’s necks.

Title: All This, and Hell Too 
Words: 2547
Notes: AU where Maki is the princess of Hell and picks Rin to be her wife. loosely based off a thing i saw @yellowgalex reblog uhuhu. also possibly nsfw bit but it’s just a ftb. 

It’s Maki’s 200th birthday.

“You shall be allowed to choose a spouse for yourself, my daughter,” the Lord of the Underworld says to her, “as a reward for your undying loyalty and obedience. Choose anyone you like in Heaven, Earth, or Hell— I shall retrieve that person for you even if it takes all my power and more.”

Secretly, he’s crossing his fingers that his daughter chooses the High Angel of Heaven. Binding her to the Underworld’s royal family would mean that he gets to take power over Heaven and extend his rule. But instead, Maki conjures an image of a person that is definitely not the High Angel of Heaven. She points.

“I want her.”
