no time for love dr. jones

alright, i see your frankly bs argument that jughead has had a crush on betty in the older comics and wasn’t aro/ace in them. let’s actually take a look into that

wow i can’t believe,, he’s so in love. he so badly wants to touch her in a romantic way.. how could i have been so blind??

like wow just. look at that face. he has such a huge crush on her wow

true love. he only wanted her for her cookies and literally dumped her when she burnt them once. 

look!! the one time he willingly kissed a girl was because she actually fucking tasted like food! what a romantic 

guys, it’s so clear he’s not aro/ace. he’s so interested and notices women all the time. 

tl;dr jughead is aro/ace, always has been, and he and betty are really good friends. 

This episode has not only addressed that time the tenth doctor underplayed historic racism but also kept the exact directions to the tardis’ wardrobe

About that confession thing…

I know not everyone sees it this way, but for me, having Killian not tell her right away and having him focus on Emma’s happiness was two fold. Having him holding off on telling her—and proposing first—wasn’t to show that their happiness would have strings attached to it, but to show that N O T H I N G will tear these two apart. 

Yes, it’s drama and angst and we all know these two are long overdue for happiness, but having him tell her about what he found out in regards to David’s dad and then, let’s say, having Emma brush it off in that moment, something akin to an, “Oh, that’s nothing,” and jumping right into the proposal would put no weight on the fact that Killian feels remorse for these past deeds of his and feels the need to atone for this.

(Even though he didn’t know it was Dave’s father, at the time of said killing, but that’s not the point right now.)

The weight of that moment, that confession, would be overshadowed by the engagement and would render the whole confession thing useless—and really reduce it to a pointless drama plot point.

Now, having the engagement come first, it’s more Killian realizing that no, he can’t continue with his happy ending with all of this looming over it—over him—and showing that while he values Emma’s happiness and his happiness with her, being the best version of himself for her, and having her know the truth is also a top priority for him. 

Because the last thing he wants is for her to make a life with someone who isn’t who he says he is (like that ex we don’t talk about or the one before that).

And in that split moment, hell yeah he was thinking about her happiness. Her whole damn face lit up like a Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. This is Emma Swan, ‘one night stands are as far as I go’ and ‘that was a one time thing’ and walls up twenty-four seven telling him the ‘answer would be yes’.

Hot damn, I’d forget my own damn name if she wanted to marry me, too.

TL;DR: There’s a point to the order for the narrative—and it’s to truly show that nothing, NOTHING will come between Emma Swan and her ONE TRUE LOVE Killian Jones.

*doctor who spoilers*

I’ve seen the Torchwood episode Cyberwoman quite a few times and I could never really understand why Ianto didn’t realise how dangerous Lisa actually was even when she tried to kill the team. I got that he was in love with her etc but I couldn’t understand why he couldn’t see past that.

Then Bill Potts got turned into a cyberman. I cried so much when she said “I waited for you”. Bill has been my favourite Doctor Who companion ever I think she’s so beautiful and funny and smart and i was heartbroken when that happened.

Now I understand why Ianto did what he did. I would do the same for Bill. Even though she is a cyberman I would protect her at all costs. Now I can see why Ianto still believed that Lisa could be saved even after she tried killing the team. I feel so bad for Ianto because now I feel like I can actually understand what he went through and it’s so sad.

Arkham Headcanons

This was uploaded on my old blog but I deleted that, so here, have them again! 

  • Whilst Selina is not a patient at Arkham Asylum, she is rather good at breaking in. Thus, she will often break in (to the chagrin of Bruce) to see her friends. 
  • As Selina is close friends with Edward Nygma (Riddler), she has also formed a close friendship with Oswald Cobblepot (who is also not a patient). She will go to the Penguin if she is struggling to locate things and in return, as payment, she performs at his club- The Ice Lounge. 
  • When sneaking into Arkham Asylum, Selina will often bring a few stray cats with her as ‘Animal therapy’. Likewise once the rogues escape Arkham they will return their cats, or drop off new strays at Selina’s door. Killer Croc is known to do this the most as cats seem to get trapped in his sewers. 
  • Often Selina will leave a few strays with the inmates- so far three have decided to keep them: Harley, Two Face and Jervis- Harley has an all black one, Jervis’ is grey, and Two Face has a cat that looks like a cow.
  • Oswald Cobblepot views Edward Nygma as his adoptive son- whether this is due to Eddie’s rough childhood, or Oswald’s loneliness, is unknown.
  • (Because of events in Hush) Joker is rather fond of The Riddler and keeps an eye out of him (not that he’d ever admit it) because Eddie gave up the name of the crook who killed his wife. 
  • Most patients in the lower levels of Arkham are forced to share cells- like Jervis and Scarecrow, however those on upper levels (like Ivy, Two Face and Joker) get their own cells. 
  • Riddler gets his own room as no one wants to share with him. 
  • During downtime, the inmates are allowed to do what they wish (within reason)- Jervis and Jonathan will often play chess or read, Edward will annoy the shit out of everyone (alternatively he will write short stories and poems), Ivy is allowed in the garden (providing she doesn’t kill anyone), and the orderlies try to get Joker to go to art therapy (he keeps drawing Harley). 
  • The Doctors and Orderlies wear name badges with their job titles written on it, and will rarely say their names near the inmates. Some asked Jonathan Crane (an ex Doctor there) why that was and he replied that it was job protection should the inmates every escape they would know little about those treating them. 
  • (Personal Head canon- doesn’t always stay the same, depends on the fanfic I’m writing) Jonathan Crane looks back on his time as a professor in Gotham University fondly. He remembers his promising student Harleen Quinzel and is proud to see what she’s accomplished as Harley Quinn. 
  • Jonathan Crane and Killer Croc still pronounce words differently as both are originally from the south- other inmates would make fun of them if they weren’t certain Croc would eat them. 
  • Once a month, to keep Jervis happy, Jeremiah Arkham will allow Jervis to hold a tea party- each rogue is assigned a roll: Harley is Alice, Jervis is Hatter, Scarecrow and Riddler are March Hare and Door mouse respectively, Poison Ivy is the Queen of Hearts, Selina will sneak in to be the cheshire cat. These parties are allowed to go on providing no one tries to kill each other. 
  • Bruce Wayne (who part funds the asylum) will often visit the hospital in order to see how everything is running. His appearance however upsets many of the patients. Harley, Two-Face and Eddie know that Bruce Wayne is Batman, though Eddie denies it wholeheartedly- for knowing who the Batman is ruins the puzzle. Croc also knows Bman is Bruce Wayne though this is because of their identical scent. 
  • Mary Louise Dahl (newly incarcerated and an ex girlfriend of Croc’s) will often sneak out of her cell and go to the sewers where the hospital holds Killer Croc. Though the orderlies are aware of this, no one tries to stop her in case Croc tries to eat them. 
  • Mary is the only person, other than Selina, to call Croc his birth name: Waylon. 
  • Not being a natural blonde, Harley will ask Selina to bring her hairdye. 
  • Harley has given everyone in Arkham a nickname. She often goes to see Croc (who puts up with her high pitched nonsense- she calls him Scales)
  • Harley will also go visit Arnold Wesker and Scarface- they will put on shows for her to make her laugh after fights with Mistah J. 
  • Eddie and Jonathan are huge caffeine addicts- even when they’re in Arkham. Eddie surprisingly likes his black, whilst Jonathan likes his with creamer and sugar. 
  • When the inmates have a mass breakout, they will often congregate in Oswald’s ice lounge- except Zsasz who refuses to go near Cobblepot after that unfortunate gambling experience. 
  • Speaking of Zsasz- he likes to be naked… a lot. Jonathan suspects its so the others can see his tally marks. 
  • Zsasz weirdly loves sweet things (to the point of obsession) and the only ‘Zombie’ Zsasz will happily spend time with is Harley- providing of course she bakes for him. 
  • If she’s good- Harley is allowed in the inmate kitchen where she and Jervis can bake to their heart’s content. They will then sell their creations- Zsasz is their best customer. 
  • Harley and Jervis have a rather popular cooking youtube show, though no one working at the hospital has any idea how its recorded or uploaded. Their recipes are normal enough that any citizen can follow it. 
  • If something big is to happen at Arkham (such as Joker’s party in the game: Arkham Asylum). Eddie will run gleefully around the entire hospital to hide his riddles in the hope of stumping the Batman. He tries to stay a few rooms ahead at all times. 
  • Killer Croc loves monster films- King Kong, Godzilla, etc
  • Killer Croc reads a lot of French literature.

Because the thing is, it’s like my friend Vicky. She lived with this bloke—student housing, five of them all packed in. And this bloke was called Sean. And she loved him. She did. She completely adored him. Spent all day long talking about him… He never looked at her twice. I mean he liked her. That was it. And she wasted years pining after him. Years of her life. ‘Cause while he was around she never looked at anyone else. And I told her, I always said to her, time and time again, I said, ‘Get out.’ So this is me, getting out. ladies meme 7/10 lead female characters: Dr. Martha Jones (Doctor Who)

Women Who Kick Ass: A Movie Timeline

In the world of Luc Besson’s sci-fi adventure “Lucy,” Scarlett Johansson’s title character represents the next step in the evolution of mankind.

But in our world, she’s the next step in a very different kind of evolution: the evolution of the female action hero.

Once upon a time, women in action movies were just damsels in distress. But these days in Hollywood, when it’s time for the world to be saved, chances are that savior is sporting more than just a witty one-liner and a mean right hook — she’s also got a pair of big brass X chromosomes.

Here’s a timeline of action heroines who changed the face of cinema:

M E N  O F  S T Y L E - Tom Farrelly. Model, Sydney.

Sometimes when you meet someone for the first time, it’s like you’ve known them for years, that is actually what happened when we met Tom. We met through a mutual friend who suggested we meet Tom and feature him for Men of Style. We had heard about Tom, the busy model (Tom is signed to London Mgt Group), who just recently walked the runway for the  David Jones Spring Summer 14 Fashion Launch, who just got back from Miami on duty as an official  Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim ambassador and the guy who seems to be popping up in every magazine and website. Little did we know that this dude started his career in PR (making him somewhat of a model underdog). Tom has a really great sense of humour (we laughed our way through the whole shoot) and doesn’t take himself too seriously. On the flip-side Tom is a very creative and deep individual with a really humble attitude. After spending a day with him we came to realise that basically he is a super nice guy who is definitely a very interesting and complex character. We’re happy to now call him a mate! 

First off, some background on where you started, where you are and where you see yourself going.

I started off working in PR and talent management. Right now I’m modelling full time, which I’m really enjoying. Eventually I would like to end up working in television. 

How would you describe your look/style?

My day to day style is quite simple and paired back. 

What would you say are your biggest influencers in terms of your style, whether it be a person, a place, a movement etc?

The weather is probably my biggest influence when I get dressed in the morning. But in terms of an aesthetic, I have always admired the classic styling of early Calvin Klein.

What are you go-to clothing stores, favourite places to shop? 

Collector store and Nique on Crown Street and I can’t go past a good department store so David Jones FTW.

Brands that you love?

Dr Denim or Cheap Monday for jeans. 

Bassike or American Vintage for a white tshirt  

J Brand for a leather or denim jacket

WillBe and Nowhereland are new Australian labels that have some great prints for summer. 

What are the ‘key’ fashion pieces in your wardrobe that you can’t live without?

J Brand denim jacket / J Brand leather jacket.  I literally have one of them with me at all times. 

Who do you see as a ‘stylish’ dude, what is the appeal?

For me style is about confidence and how you carry yourself.

Rucas FanFic: Heliocentrism

A/N: Several weeks ago, I posted this picture in one of my IG edits about the Friar Family. I received quite a bit of negative feedback. Most were appalled that I represented “adult” Lucas as having tattoos. Some were polite about it, some weren’t. I decided to write a one-shot that explains why he has these tattoos. I searched for hours for this photo (trust me, it was not a hardship😈🙊) because I knew they would be the perfect representation of his story. 

Heliocentrism

Heliocentrism, or heliocentricism,is the astronomical model in which the Earth and planets revolve around the Sun at the center of the Solar System. 

The Friar family is out working with their friends & neighbors cleaning up a local park one warm Saturday morning. Riley, 7 months pregnant, starts to feel a little woozy and goes to sit on a shaded bench to wait for the nausea to pass.

As she reaches down and grabs a bottle of water from her bag, she notices two older ladies sit down on the adjacent bench.

“Good Afternoon Ladies.” Riley greets them with a smile.

“Good Afternoon Miss.” They reply as they settle themselves into comfortable positions on the bench.

also so i was watching ouat last night because i fell madly in love with hank harris as dr. henry jekyll during the tail end of season 5B, and seeing him pop up again last night in the rewatch i never thought i’d get around to but lmao jekyll’s ep is one of the best i think i’ve ever seen and ill stand by it until this dumb ass soap opera dies reminded me how one of the things i love about jessica jones is that in addition to being a walking consent metaphor, just how much of a morality tale kilgrave really is. the strange case of dr. jekyll and mr. hyde is one of my favorite novels of the gothic literature movement, and one of the reasons its so applicable to kilgrave ( hence why i was thinking about it last night ) is that, like a lot of the novels from that time, adaptations always get it fucking wrong. the whole point of jekyll and hyde is not that jekyll and hyde are two completely separate entities, but are in fact two sides of the same exact person. the final chapter in the book is told from henry jekyll’s point of view, and the whole point of it is to emphasize the fact that jekyll likes being hyde. like the sheer atrocity that has often been made of mary shelley’s frankenstein in depicting victor frankenstein as the oh-so-good doctor and the creature ( the creature, not frankenstein, because frankensteincreated the creature. ) as this shuffling mess of a monstrosity, jekyll and hyde is almost always misinterpreted as henry jekyll being the victim and edward hyde being the literal demon to slay as opposed to the proverbial. just as a lot of people don’t realize ( which they would if they read the damn book ) that victor frankenstein is the real monster and it is the creature who is the more human, it is arguably henry jekyll who is more a monster than edward hyde– in fact he is, because edward hyde doesnt exist. edward hyde is henry jekyll. henry jekyll is edward hyde, and while he may outwardly condemn his own acts, the whole point of hyde is to liberate jekyll. he exists to serve as a moral patsy of sorts.

now arguably it’s easier to tie in kilgrave to dorian gray, another one of my favorite gothic morality tales, and it wasn’t even until last night that i’d even thought to draw any sort of a comparison between kilgrave and jekyll and hyde, but while under different circumstance, i think kilgrave’s powers are the proverbial hyde, and as such assuage him of any real troubling guilt afterward. the whole point of kilgrave’s power is to serve as a morality trap upon closer inspection. it’s something that david himself has talked about in interviews, and while it certainly doesn’t excuse any of the morally reprehensible acts under [kilgrave’s] belt, it will give you pause if you think about it ( it should, anyways ), and therein lies the rub: if we could give in to our deepest desires without consequence ( with kilgrave, it’s through the use of his powers; with jekyll, it’s through the use of hyde ), isn’t it sort of a given that most of us would, even all of us to at least some extent? just something to think about.

CBC’s latest show is Strange Empire, a women-driven Western. Here’s the details:

STRANGE EMPIRE is a Western whose heroes are women. With most of their men gone, and those who remain battling for control, the women struggle to survive, to find their independence, and to build a life in which to thrive and raise families. As the stories of Janestown’s citizens unfold we see the clash between a power-hungry father and son and the deep prejudices among races, but also the start of something akin to community in this Wild West. Western stories take civilization as a goal; they begin in blood, and end in the morality of Main Street. Starring Cara Gee as Kat Loving, Melissa Farman as Dr. Rebecca Blithely and Tattiawna Jones as Isabelle Slotter.

I can’t remember the last time I was interested in a CBC show, but this one’s caught my attention. I was let down by the last few attempts at a Western TV show (Hell on Wheels, that means you) but I’ll give this one a chance. Also, female-centric Westerns are super trendy right now - The Keeping Room with Brit Marling premiered at TIFF this year, and Hilary Swank’s got The Homesmen coming out soon.

Anyway, check out the trailer above for Strange Empires. It’s got violence, mysticism and ladies kicking ass, and that’s enough for me to check out the pilot.

A Grandiose Analysis of Actors

I decided to change things up from my normal analysis style instead of a film as usual I’ve decided to discuss actors that I view to be influential/have influenced me personally I’ll try to keep the list as short as possible because honestly film is a very large part of my life and I could probably list hundreds upon hundreds of actors I view to be cultural icons. I would also like to say that these are in no particular order. I’m not in the business of rating actors I simply like watching movies. 

1. RDJ (Robert Downey Jr.)

Keep in mind up up until this point I had always seen pale actors with crystal blue eyes portrayed as beautiful. RDJ was the first actor i ever saw who looked similar to me. He was olive skinned and dark haired and I latched onto him like a life preserver. It didn’t even matter what ethnicity he was all that mattered was that someone who looked similar to be was famous. i couldn’t believe it. I realized that if he could be successful so could I and by watching his movies I could drown out the people telling me that people who looked like me could not succeed. Anyway, for that reason RDJ will always hold a special place in my heart. I consider him one of my “first crushes” and he became a symbol of hope for me.He is a magnificently talented actor but he is even more of inspiration simply as a person.

2. Harrison Ford

Harrison Ford. Even the name sounds impressive. Harrison Ford was one of the first actors I ever adored. i didn’t stand much of a chance against it anyway. My father loved him and showed me all 3 of the Indiana Jones movies (we don’t mention the other one) as soon as he possibly could. I remember being transfixed. He was like an american James bond. He was both intelligent and strong. even better he was goofy. I had never come across someone who could be both suave and funny. I immediately fell head over heels involve with Dr. Jones. I still consider Harrison one of my “first crushes” ones I classify as leaving a lifetime imprint. Much time has passed since I have seen those films but you can bet on me writing love you on my eyelids if I ever come across him.

3.Marcello Mastroianni

I had to work to find my beloved marcello. Unlike Harrison Ford or Cary Grant my family did not know of him or Fellini for that matter. I was not raised with him so I had to search for him. I discovered him like many people did in a whirl wind of movies such as 8 ½. I was struck by the way he acted and moved. I had never seen anyone glide across the screen like marcello. like he owned it yet he was trying to remain modest about it. He was charming with a child like excitement to him that made you fall for him instantly. He had great presence about him and there was always something comforting about seeing his smiling face on the screen. 

4..Clark Gable

Oh Clark Gable. Clark was one of the few men I really wanted to sweep me of my feet. I remember seeing gone with the wind for the first time and being obsessed. The pencil mustache somehow fit him so perfectly. He was the best combination of cocky and  down to earth that he charmed me from his first scene even though he had no lines. Clark was my mother and I’s Cary Grant. He was our favorite old hollywood film star. Film has strange way of bonding people and nothing bonded us closer than our shared love for Clark gable. He was considered the king of old hollywood.The quiet and contemplative king that could steal your heart away with a single glance

5.Cary Grant

I fell in love with Cary Grant the way most people fall in love with whiskey. Slowly but surely. I loved rugged men. How could I not? I was raised on a steady influx of Indiana Jones and James Bond.  For this reason I was wary of Cary Grant. My grandmother loved him but he always seemed a bit too proper for me. He was presented to me as the image of a ken doll, the perfect upstanding gentlemen.  This is why up until the first movie I watched with him I believed I would like him but he would never be my type. After North by Northwest I watched more and more of his movies and quickly realized this tall dark silly man was not at all what I had perceived him to be. Cary Grant managed to be both the aristocrat and the average man and I think there is something spectacular about that.

6.Colin Firth

Colin Firth was my favorite in the only rom com I could ever sit through without throwing up when I was younger. There was something about those eyes. Those soft puppy dogs eyes and that slightly upperclass accent that drew you in. He was so easy to fall in love that you would barely even notice how much you liked him until you realized you were yelling at the tv for bridget to pick him for god sake’s he’s the better choice! Either way I feel is though I will never see another actor that can make so many weak just with his eyes.

7.Jean Reno

Jean Reno is one of those actors who is simultaneously a stone cold killer and the tender hearted companion. He has this kind of duality about him which I found fascinating. I include him on my list because he shaped my view of french cinema. My choices in cinema were limited when I was younger but I can still remember watching La Femme Nikkta and Leon back to back and being struck by him. There was something about him that stuck with you long after the movie was over. A certain je ne sais quoi 

8.Jack Nicholson

Oh, jacky. Good old Jack. Not really reliable but a hell of a good time. I was introduced to Jack probably before I could even speak. From easy rider to Batman I’ve probably seen every notable film of his at some time or another on family movie night. The thing that was great about jack is what has defined how I judge most people’s character now. He was real. You never feel like you’re getting the “hollywood polished face”. He was simply himself and there’s something kind of magical about “just jack”.

The Family Woman-Part 4

Part 1-Part 2-Part 3-Part 5

Merry Christmas Eve!  And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, Happy Wednesday Eve!  Here is the fourth installment of Family Woman.  I hope you’ve enjoyed it thus far!

The Family Woman-Part 4

Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months, and Holly had fallen into the routine that  was her new life.  She hadn’t missed anymore pick-ups or drop offs at school, had  made a point of looking up everyone’s birth certificates so she didn’t miss any birthdays, and Holly had even attended parent teacher conferences and volunteered at Felix and Jane’s school.

There was only one area in her new life that she was having a hard time adapting to: her love life.  Or more specifically, the intimate parts of her love life.  Just as it had been when they were dating, Gail was ravenous when it came to sex.  The difference was, now that they had kids, they had to be opportunistic about where and when they had sex.  This often led to the blonde surprising Holly by literally jumping her bones.
