need to replace

anonymous asked:

I suppose if you want to skip the first two seasons of Crossing Lines it would probably be fine because with the cast change in season 3 it might as well be a spin off with a couple characters from the first two seasons. But the first two seasons were what got me into the show so eh, its your choice. Just wondering if you have any shows you'd rec to a timeless fan who's suffering from post-series depression?

Nah, I’ll watch the whole thing. I hate jumping into the middle of something. I just don’t know… when exactly I will get to it. I told my sister about it, and she just said, “Add it to the list.” lol. Maybe soon though. I’m intrigued. Currently, I am trying to get caught up on Sleepy Hollow. After that I move to the next item on the list.


I actually DO have a show I would like to recommend specifically to Timeless fans.

It’s called Forever. It was on ABC a couple years ago. It was canceled after one season; however, the finale was good and wrapped up almost everything. There are still some unanswered questions, but it did cover the more pressing ones. I think the series can stand alone as that one season. There were no cliffhangers or anything, so you’re safe watching it.

Anyway, it gives me a similar vibe to Timeless. I think I’ve seen other people in the fandom who are fans of both. Nowhere near as complicated, but still good. It’s the story of an immortal man named Henry Morgan. And, sadly, I do not think there exists a good trailer for this show. Here’s the official one anyway. It explains and gives you an idea. Even if it’s really corny at the end for some reason.

I liked it from the trailer because I do really love immortals, especially when we don’t have to tie it back to vampirism. But here’s my favorite part of the show that they actually leave out of the trailer: the other immortal (aka: my favorite character… of anything ever?). Henry is 235-years-old, but the other one is over 2,000. And while each episode reminds me a little of Timeless in that Henry will flash back to memories throughout his life (in the past), his relationship with the other immortal does, in a way, also remind me of Flynn and Lucy. Granted, this man is much further gone than Flynn, but I do consider him to still be morally gray at times. He is very fond of Henry. Has a soft spot for him. Gives him gifts sometimes. Kills him a couple times. Because Henry is the only other immortal he’s ever met. He calls them soulmates. And, obviously, he comes on a little strong sometimes, being convinced that they’re meant to be together. So yes, it does remind me of Flynn/Lucy just a bit. But darker. I love dynamics like that.

But again, there’s also the historical aspect of it. Henry is 235, and he has many memories that the present day will remind him of. A specific memory is tied to each episode. We see him in the past a lot. There’s also a lot of really good and dramatic writing. Clearly. Because he’s immortal and outlives everyone he loves. One of my favorite and saddest/sweetest instances of his agelessness is addressed at the end of the Pilot, but I won’t spoil it.

So I definitely recommend Forever to Timeless fans while we sit around waiting for news of season two. I still really like it. At the time it was released, I was watching it as obsessively as I am Timeless now.

The entire series is free to watch on CW Seed. Website here. Or you can download their app.


That’s my number one rec if you’re looking for something in a Timeless vein. But I’d also recommend:

  • Sleepy Hollow (all on Hulu)
  • Grimm
  • Hannibal (on Amazon?)
  • Pushing Daisies (free on CW Seed)
  • Firefly (all on Neftlix)
  • Daredevil (all on Netflix)
  • Lost (all on Netflix)
  • Person of Interest (all on Netflix)
  • The Almighty Johnsons (all on Netflix)
  • Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (all on Netflix)
  • Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (all on Netflix)

Just some shows I’ve enjoyed watching. All really good and marvelously rich with deep characters and good plots. I’d recommend any of those, but it really just depends what you’re looking for or are in the mood for. The last one? Strange/Norrell, very, very good and only seven episodes. I played it completely randomly and was quite impressed. I’ve bought the book it’s based off of but haven’t read it yet. I think a short series would be a good way to get over a post-series depression.

If anyone has a show to recommend to the anon who likes things like Timeless and Crossing Lines, do reply below. ♥

Take the courses. Brace the main and mizzen aback. Haul in the guns. Close all the gun ports. You’re letting up? With the damage done to the rig, I can’t maneuver our broadside around fast enough to be of any effect. The sloops are too nimble. But hauling in the guns? They’ll board us easily.

I knew better then to believe you but your lies were so sweet.

Growing up, we were taught that the Fire Nation was the greatest civilization in history and somehow, the war was our way of sharing our greatness with the rest of the world. What an amazing lie that was! The people of the world are terrified by the Fire Nation! They don’t see our greatness – they hate us! And we deserve it. We’ve created an era of fear in the world. And if we don’t want the world to destroy itself, we need to replace it with an era of peace and kindness.

—until there were too many kisses to count or remember, and the memory of love proved not love at all and needed a replacement, which our bodies found, and then the giggles subsided, and the laughter dimmed, and darkness enfolded all of us and we gave away our childhood for nothing and we died—

So I played the demo of UnderTale and it’s such a cute game :o 

I haven’t been in the best mood so I made this to remind all of you (and myself) that you are filled with determination

Stay Determined~

Can we just

Bucky Barnes is an adult who spent a good 2 years probably wandering around and remembering stuff and probably being really skittish but generally looking after himself and remembering how to be an autonomous person who can think for himself and make his own decisions and just wants to have a quiet time and try in his little way to rebuild his life.  He doesn’t need Steve to tell him what to do; he doesn’t need to replace one form of supervision with another.  If you honestly think at this point in his narrative that he can’t be trusted to make his own decisions and needs Steve to discern right and wrong for him, or tell him what to do, it squicks me that you ship it.

He’s been surviving on his own and ostensibly not killing anybody or doing anything other than living a low-profile gentle life piecing his memories together and eating fresh seasonal fruit for two years.  He’s getting his shit together.  He’s an autonomous grown-up who can do things for himself.  Just… let’s not diminish that, it’s icky.
