So, the Alt-Right want to fight Star Wars fans now?

Oh, dear God. You poor people have no clue just who you are messing with, do you?

Alt-right: “We’re crazy and obsessive and will do anything it takes! More than anyone else.”

Me: “You don’t know most Star Wars fans, do you?”

To the wonderful cast of Bones: it has been an amazing journey and an experience of a lifetime to be a fan of yours. As a fandom, we have been so so lucky to have witnessed all that you have to offer, and all that can be achieved when you have a group of extremely humble and dedicated actors together. A group of actors who all like each other so much, and who get along so well, and who then form their own makeshift family. “There’s more than one kind of family” - this quote is so, so true for both the characters on Bones as well as their respective real-life counterparts. To say that I’m going to miss Bones so much is an understatement, because, as every true Bones fan knows and understands, it’s not just the show that we will miss - it’s everything. The cast, the crew, the behind-the-scenes action - we will miss it all. And I dare say that our cast is, and will always be, the best cast that has ever existed. Period.

So, to our dearest Emily, David, Michaela, TJ, Tamara, (new) John and (old) John, Eric, Patricia, Michael, Pej, Eugene, Carla, Laura, Ignacio, Joel, Luke, Brian, and to everyone else, especially Hart, Stephen, Kathy, Michael and Jonathan; on behalf of the fandom, I’d like to express my heartfelt gratitude for everything that you have given us with this beautiful, one-of-a-kind show. Thank you for all the memories, and fun, and joy, and laughter that you have brought into our lives. Thank you for being who you are, and for always acknowledging us as well - it just makes the experience of being YOUR fan all the more fun and awesome. You’ll be in our hearts, always. 

They say that “you can love a lot of people shows in this world, but there’s only one person show that you’ll love the most”. For me, that’s Bones, and that is all thanks to the most amazing cast to ever exist. 

chy_leigh: 🎉HAPPY BIRTHDAY🎉 to the coolest guy around… @davidharewood You are one of the most genuine, joyful, hilarious, gifted, badass dudes I’ve ever known. I pray this year brings you peace, adventure, and fulfillment in all areas of your life. I’m honored to be your #righthandgirl at the #DEO but even more so, your friend 👩🏻👽 #happybirthday #martianmanhunter #supergirl @thecwsupergirl

I know people are bothered that Killian is “asking permission” from David and that they think that it’s weird and a little too old-school for him to do such a thing, but I really don’t think he’s doing it because it would have any impact on whether or not Killian actually proposed.  Captain Charming has been evolving and changing for almost as long as Captain Swan, and now they’ve become such good friends that I think Killian is doing it for David more than anything.  Because David is old-school.  Killian loves Emma, but he respects David and he wants him to know that.  I think the whole “asking permission” thing is purely to show David that he respects him as Emma’s father, and also has his friend.  Let’s not forget that David also missed most of Emma’s life.  He missed so many huge milestones, and this is going to be a HUGE milestone for her.  I personally think it’s beautiful that David is going to get to experience something like this, and I think it’s beautiful that Killian respects him so much to do this (not that his answer would ever keep him from asking Emma to marry him).  The only question now is, are we going to see him have a similar conversation with Henry???

PS: I’m not trying to change anyone’s minds here.  If you don’t like the idea of Killian asking permission, I understand and respect that.  This is just how I feel about it.

Why Trump is so obsessed with generals
The president-elect is infatuated with martial swagger and Hollywood’s Patton — which is why he's filling his Cabinet with top military brass. By SHANE GOLDMACHER

As President-elect Donald Trump began building the top tier of his administration, he has turned to friends and advisers to ask just how many generals would be too many — suggesting he may want to tap as many as five — to fill his Cabinet and the highest rungs of the White House.

He’s already up to three, with retired generals in crucial national security posts: secretary of defense (James Mattis), secretary of homeland security (John Kelly) and national security adviser (Michael Flynn). On Thursday, Trump interviewed retired Navy Adm. James Stavridis for secretary of state, one of two military men among the finalists to become the nation’s top diplomat along with former Gen. David Petraeus.

Even before all his picks are finalized, Trump is on pace to assemble the most military-heavy White House and civilian administration since at least World War II.

Military leaders have long held a special allure for Trump, according to people who have spoken to the president-elect both during the formation of his Cabinet and in the years before, including some Hollywood portrayals.

“Frankly, he’s way too impressed in the generals,” said one confidant of Trump, who attended a military academy in high school but never joined in the armed services, instead receiving draft deferments during the Vietnam War. “The more braid you have on your shoulders and the more laurels that you have on your visor, the more impressed he is.”
