because she is

I put Cassandra in a dress
(now I run for my life)

Not only is Mabel Pines a confident female character, but she’s a confident female character whose arc is never about tearing her down for daring to love herself. So many times, confident women only get stories about how they’re full of themselves and need to be taken down a notch (also, so many times, confidence is only written to co-exist with cruelty–the message is that you can only love yourself if you hate everyone else).

Every time there’s a storyline about Mabel’s insecurity, she ends up validated. Pacifica makes fun of her for being too silly? Her silliness is the only way they solve the mystery. Unicorn tells her she isn’t good enough? It’s because the unicorn is a lying jerk! She feels like she isn’t smart enough to play DD&MD? Her enthusiasm and creativity (plus Stan’s rule-breaking) totally save the day! She gets tricked into starting Weirdmageddon because she feels alone and afraid and not one single character blames her for it and once Dipper has helped her face her problems and convinced her she won’t be alone, she bursts out of the bubble certain that she and her friends can save the world! And they do! It comes down to the Stans in the end, but only because Mabel and Dipper got everyone there, led them and inspired them and reminded Stan and Ford what it’s like to work together.

Mabel’s coming-of-age arc is so well-constructed and nuanced and compassionate and it builds her up instead of tearing her down. It matters. She matters.

From the script for the undone musical “Sappho” episode titled “Last Dance,” written by the amazing Melissa Good.

The whole premise of the episode being that Xena and Gabrielle get commissioned by Aphrodite help a couple of couples find love again, including Sappho (played by Renee) and her partner Morai (played by Lucy). X and G go to the island of Lesbos posing as their lookalikes while Aphrodite has sent Sappho and Morai away on a romantic vacation.
Things get a little complicated when Sappho and Morai return and the classic Xena lookalike chaos ensues, now doubled with Gabby also having a twin of her own.
In the dramatic final act, our soulmates share a very beautiful moment in the form of a deep, sincere and passionate kiss.

Please tell me why this episode was never made?

And also, if the reboot doesn’t bring this script back somehow, maybe sans the lookalikes and have Renee and Lucy playing the older Sappho and Morai?

So taking into account Duff’s personal vs. professional lives separation talk…
This is Sharon being happy for Andy and for them. But this is also the Captain thinking The electronics room is not the place for this, Lieutenant?

tesla-tea-and-top-hats  asked:

Are you and @backstageleft roommates?

Roommates, best friends, partners-in-crime, canoodlers, spontaneous adventurers, side kicks, maker outers, mutuals, sharers of fridge space, road trip co-pilots, personal assistants, hand holders, royal sandwich turners, moral supporters, afternoon nappers…

Oh, and we’re dating, too. So that’s a thing.

This is Lily. I’ve never revealed her name on here because I wanted to give her a air of mystery. I feel I don’t post enough of her to have that be a thing anymore though. So this is Lily, the cat my Dad looks after. No one really owns her, she started off at the house across the road but Lily got sick of that owner not actually being there very often, not feeding her or giving her attention very often so she made her way over to this house of chaps who love cats to bits. After an incident in which she nabbed one of me ginger nuts (a biscuit/cookie not a euphemism) we realised she needed feeding too. So she’s ‘ours’ now. Our neighbour who used to own her doesn’t give a shit, so even better. Lily’s getting on now, a mutual neighbour seems to think she’s approaching 20 which would be remarkable considering her sprightliness come meal time! Her age might be more reflected in the faded colours of her coat: brown, ginger, even blonde and grey flecks here-and-there where there once was total black. We’ve had her a few years now and despite having a face that screams apathy she is such a darling, friendly spirit to be blessed with.

dunno why people still act like whatever danielle posts isn’t part of the plan and that it’s somehow all her fault and her own doing…if louis didn’t want her to post anything she wouldn’t…

scenes with no dialogue
“When you are telling the truth like it’s a lie, or when you lay down all 52 Queens, or when you explode the very notion of a lie so that it covers the entire universe, then that’s the world wearing itself as a mask. It’s called “divination” because you are being reminded of the divinity of all things; it’s just opening up the tiniest crack in reality so you can see how wonderful things are behind the scenes and how much sense it makes. God wearing us. That’s what truth nets you: Everything. And all you have to do is be brave enough to admit how small you always were.” –Jacob Clifton

Writing a fem!character x reader is like, the best thing ever, because not only does it fulfill gayness i need in my life, but it also makes me think of the time i got in an argument with a homophobe here on tumblr dot com that i still have blocked to this day, and how much they would be cringing because of my gay sinning. 

Life is an adventure, ya’ll.
