3. List your fandoms - ALL of them?? let’s do top 10 fave tv shows. Here goes. and one character I identify with.

SILICON VALLEY - probably Dinesh. Either that or a weird combination of Monica and Richard (because on one hand I’m attractive and capable, and on the other hand I’m a anxiety ridden mess.)

BROOKLYN NINE NINE - I am Amy Santiago. Like I actually am her. In real life.

NEW GIRL - I am also actually Schmidt.

M*A*S*H - I’d like to think I identify with Hawkeye.

ARCHER - Lanaaaaaaa

BUFFY - Willow and Xander

ER - Carol Hathaway (I <3 her so much)

HOUSE - Cameron

HOGAN’S HEROES - Hilda/Helga cuz I’d be all over Hogan all day, let’s be real

DOWNTON ABBEY - Thomas probably

4. I do like my name, I guess, although I would never name anyone Hannah. Hannah means “grace” in Hebrew, and I don’t think I am particularly graceful. I can’t think of a better name, but if I could, it’d probably begin with a J.

11. My ideal day would begin no earlier than 9 when I have time for a long shower and an actual breakfast. I’d be in a big, airy house with all my favorite people, and we’d go do fun things together all day, then we’d come back and chill and probably stay up too late but it wouldn’t matter because my ideal day means not having to get up early the following morning.

16. If I’d have grown up in a different environment, would I be the same? That’s something I often wonder. As it is, my upbringing is crazy out of the ordinary and mostly in a really good way. The way I was raised makes me automatically think outside the box, not take social norms for granted, have a huge respect and love for music, movies, literature, and general knowledge. My upbringing also makes it a little more difficult to connect with others, which causes me to shy away from people and relationships. Had I gone to school all my life, I’d probably be a lot more easy going around people and tbh, I might have more friends. However, the friends that I do have are fucking awesome, and I wouldn’t change the positives of my childhood to get rid of the negatives, because those made me who I am too, and I like who I am. Being different from most of my peers makes me appreciate people even more, I think, because I sort of have to fight for their attention sometimes, and I know what it’s like not to get it. Being unsuccessful at relationships makes me value them even more than I would have if they came easy to me. So I’ve gotta wok hard. I can do that, and in the mean time, I can enjoy what makes me different and colorful and interesting.

Carol Hathaway and Hermione Granger!

LMAO these two are interesting :P I assume you don’t mean as a ship right :P (and yes I will do Wes as well just for the “fun”)

002 | Give me a character & I will tell you

Carol Hathaway

  • How I feel about this character:I love her so much. She is incredible. I adore her and I love very much that she decided to stay a nurse and not go to medschool though she had the option and could go and got a high score on the exam. 
  • All the people I ship romantically with this character: Doug! 
  • My non-romantic OTP for this character:Hmm Lizzie, Susan, Jeanie, Anna and Mark. 
  • My unpopular opinion about this character:Hmm what is unpopular and popular? I didn’t hate her and Luka? 
  • One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: She and Doug had gotten their own spin off. No honestly i am pretty happy with what we got.
  • my OTP: Her and Doug.
  • my cross over ship: LMAo oh boy no idea… I guess a cross over with Grey’s Anatomy of some kind. just not as a ship but as a thing…
  • a headcanon fact: That her and Doug got a son as well and named him Doug jr.

002 | Give me a character & I will tell you

Hermione Granger

  • How I feel about this character:I love her forever and always. If there is one female charcter i love the most Hermione might be the one (her and Lyra from His Dark Materials). I dressed up as her. I grew up with Hermione, i draw her, I played her. I went as her to the movies. I had her clothes. I went dressed as her to the book publishings, I adore her. 
  • All the people I ship romantically with this character:LMAO yeah here is where it gets fun because I ship her with Harry and not with Ron. Sorry guys I really do and I have done so since I was 11 or maybe 12 but I think 11 or maybe it was even 10 I can’t remember the year i read the first book. So little likelyhood of it ever really changing. 
  • My non-romantic OTP for this character:Hmm Ginny, Harry because yeah it didn’t happen. Luna and her interacting was fun, her and her cat, her and being smart. Her and books. her and her wand, her at being worried for her friends even when she is annoying. Her and punching Malfoy. Her and interactign with everyone. Her and her fear of flying. Her and brewing potion. 
  • My unpopular opinion about this character:That I wish she had ended up with Harry not Ron? And again shipped them since I read the first book in 2000. I even tried writing fanfiction before i knew what it was for them right after the 4th book. So I guess another is that i hated the epilogue?  
  • One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: Ummm lmao read above? No honestly without changing anything big which that would have been I am pretty happy with it. I would very much have liked an epilgue that told me what they ended up as and what they did instead of the kids stuff.
  • my OTP: Her and Harry.
  • my cross over ship: Don’t think I have one. My self and Hermione having a talk about books and stuff maybe?
  • a headcanon fact: Wow, well that she found her parents again and reuninted with them. That she got to work in some kind of ministery (I know it is canon if you do pottermore and all that). That she got to work and be happy her whole life. 

002 | Give me a character & I will tell you

Wes

  • How I feel about this character:He is boring. I know he is meant to be the main one but he still bores me. 
  • All the people I ship romantically with this character:No one. 
  • My non-romantic OTP for this character:umm No one Because i find him boring. 
  • My unpopular opinion about this character:He is boring. 
  • One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: He stopped being boring?
  • my OTP: Nothing
  • my cross over ship: Nothing. He is too boring for me to speculate over one.
  • a headcanon fact: No idea. again i find him to boring to spend time thinking headcanon for him.

Anne Hathaway

“Item I gyve unto my wief my second best bed…” (from Shakespeare’s will)

The bed we loved in was a spinning world

of forests, castles, torchlight, clifftops, seas

where he would dive for pearls. My lover’s words

were shooting stars which fell to earth as kisses

on these lips; my body now a softer rhyme

to his, now echo, assonance; his touch

a verb dancing in the centre of a noun.

Some nights, I dreamed he’d written me, the bed

a page beneath his writer’s hands. Romance

and drama played by touch, by scent, by taste.

In the other bed, the best, our guests dozed on,

dribbling their prose. My living laughing love–

I hold him in the casket of my widow’s head

as he held me upon that next best bed.

- Carol Ann Duffy~

Anne Hathaway by Carol Ann Duffy

“Item I gyve unto my wife my second best bed.”
(from Shakespeare’s will)

The bed we loved in was a spinning world
of forests, castles, torchlight, clifftops, seas
where he would dive for pearls. My lover’s words
were shooting stars which fell to earth as kisses on these lips;
my body now a softer rhyme to his, now echo, now assonance; his touch
a verb dancing in the centre of a noun.
Some nights, I dreamed he’d written me, the bed
a page beneath his writer’s hands. Romance
and drama played by touch, by scent, by taste.
In the other bed, the best, our guests dozed on,
dribbling their prose. My living laughing love -
I hold him in the casket of my widow’s head
as he held me upon that next best bed.


  1. ‘forests, castles… seas’, fantastical imagery that counteracts the stigma of the ‘second best bed’, asyndetic list. Adds thrill and adventure to the stationary object. Might suggest that it is down to interpretation (like poetry - metapoetic?)
  2. ‘The bed we loved in’, the sonnet form links with the introductory theme of ‘love’, note the past-tense nature, forefronts the significance of the bed, suggests that it has more value to them than others.
  3. ‘dribbling their prose’, prose often the most popular of the literary form - like ‘the best’ bed - however is also the most base and least beautiful. ‘dribbling’ holds connotations of carelessness, and holds little meaning. 
  4. ‘drama played by touch, by scent, by taste’, sensuous nature of writing creates a link between literature and their sexuality. perhaps this may be to show how their love is more real (because of its multi-sensory nature), in contrast to his writings.
  5. ‘my body is a softer rhyme’, feminist theory is critical of the presentation of herself as ‘softer’, and weaker than that of a man. her body is interchangeable with literature, demanding attention to how she is more important because she is real?? 
  6. ‘I dreamed he’d written me’, interesting use of the verb ‘dreamed’ within a poem about beds. Duffy is using a dreamed up character to dream about a romance that’s over. Appears to be denying reality: death. Wants a man’s influence over her existence, or else is resentful of her absence in his sonnets.
  7. ‘in a casket’ ‘widow’, the heroic ends melancholic. the reiteration that the body and literature is interchangeable may leave a positive message that both Shakespeare and Hathaway are eternalised by poetry and imagination.
  8. sonnet form however no reg. rhyme, and tentative iambic pent. liberation from what has been defined Shakespeare’s Sonnet form.
