When you meet your fave and he is every bit as nice and adorable as you thought he would be and you’re both really un-photogenic (and sleepy) at midnight but it’s okay because you had a nice talk and good things happened for you and everything is great and nothing else matters.
Honestly Call the Midwife is such a special show. Every episode is so rich. It furthers the plot and main character arcs while also always having a pregnancy-of-the-week with real depth and poignancy, usually adding to the main characters’ plot both directly and through subtle parallels. It’s light and funny as well as dark and real. It’s one of the few shows that makes me sob pretty much every episode. It has wonderful characters, mostly women, each with flaws and pasts and hopes for the future. It also doesn’t use the time period in which it’s set as an excuse for a lack of diversity; it has characters from all walks of life and even a loving lesbian relationship between two main characters. I just can’t express my love for it enough. It’s always such a treat at the beginning of every year to get a new series.
You know i began to follow you because i liked your art style and your comics at first sight, and you're always showing more and more skills into your drawings... i'm deeply impressed, as the story's good, the characters are charming and the way you draw everything, from joy to sadness, is so well done, i hope somedays i'll reach a level this great. Have a nice day, night or morning ❤
everything is awful right now, but please don’t give up hope. we are not alone.
i know this is hard for a lot of us but not everyone is a fighter and that’s ok.
if your heart is soft and kind, that is a gift. don’t let the harshness of the world harden it. protect it. nurture it. kindness will allow us to heal when the fight is over.
in the days to come we will need the caring hearts just as much as the warriors. the growers as much as the destroyers, and the places of quiet to retreat to to help us build something better than what is.
so protect each other, heal together. create safety around yourselves and resist the tide of cruelty that will come.
be strong, be safe. I love you.
I was rewatching some episodes and the thought occurred to me… Kobayashi’s neighbors must be used to some real oddities. Like, I know that peripheral characters & elements basically stop existing when they aren’t necessary to the storyline, I’m not complaining about the canon or anything, I just think it’s funny to consider the scenario. There’s probably at least one or two explosions a week coming from the Kobayashi apartment. If they’re unlucky, it’ll have taken out the walkway again, but they know everything will be good as new within an hour. No one really wondered twice about the sideways chimney that appeared around christmas, and disappeared shortly after. What are they going to do? Ask about it? After all, except for the occasional floor-shaking explosion, they’re good neighbors. The maid is exceptionally friendly, and they have such a sweet daughter! So the neighbors just go about their business, probably half-aware that something strange is going on, but being polite enough not to ask questions.
