Hello, old friend.
And here we are, you and me, on the last page. By the time you read these words, Rory and I will be long gone. So know that we lived well and were very happy. And, above all else, know that we will love you, always. Sometimes I do worry about you, though. I think, once we’re gone, you won’t be coming back here for a while and you might be alone, which you should never be. Don’t be alone, Doctor. And do one more thing for me. There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that, if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to sea and fight pirates. She’ll fall in love with a man who’ll wait 2000 years to keep her safe. Tell her she’ll give hope to the greatest painter who ever lived and save a whale in outer space.
Tell her this is the story of Amelia Pond. And this is how it ends.

“There’s a little girl waiting in a garden. She’s going to wait a long while, so she’s going to need a lot of hope. Go to her. Tell her a story. Tell her that if she’s patient, the days are coming that she’ll never forget. Tell her she’ll go to see and fight pirates.

If you’ve never read the book Good Omens, let me tell you what you’re missing

-An angel who is so goddamn lazy that he makes a deal with the demon he’s supposed to be thwarting so that neither of them have to do any work and he has more time to spend running his bookshop, and who wants to stop the Apocalypse because he loves sushi

-A demon who pretends to be suave and cool but who really just geeks out over his car and loves James Bond and listens to nothing but Queen and thinks gluing coins to the sidewalk is proper demonic activity

-This angel and demon are probably not gay for each other but I mean they’re holding hands on the cover art.

-This angel and demon try to stop the apocalypse but they fuck up so badly that they do literally nothing useful the whole book and somehow it’s still all about them.

-Technically it was the Satanic Nuns who fucked up, but we don’t really talk about that.

-Death (the horseperson) playing a trivia videogame in a diner.

-The four extra horsepersons that were never mentioned in Revelation.

-The antichrist who almost destroys the world because he wants to save the whales

-The only piece of fiction I have ever seen besides Supernatural that somehow manages to include both the Christian apocalypse and space aliens.

-The context of the phrase “gayer than a tree full of monkeys high on nitrous oxide.”

a comprehensive ranking of my favorite girls

a soft girl! lots of gradients but at least they didn’t shade with black. would call her a friend! 4/5

very minimalist, which is an intriguing design choice, but doesn’t work for our friend the whale. also i can’t tell if that’s a mouth or a mustache 2/5

microsoft why do you feel the need to outline everything with thick black lines. also no whale should bend in that manner. 1/5 you’re hurting her

a small girl! she looks like she could use a friend. please befriend her 4/5

a very realistic lady! she looks like she has been at her breeding grounds for a long time with her calf. they’ll be ready to go to the feeding grounds soon! 5/5

a sperm whale, albeit with some artistic license in coloring! she looks like she’s not having fun. why is she sad? 3/5 please let her smile

a blue whale! thank you facebook for drawing attention to this endangered species. she just wants to eat krill and have a good time. 4/5 save her friends!

another blue whale, this time a little darker! she looks like she has just taken a mouth full of krill. good for her! 4/5

a cheeky girl…she’s going to steal ur krill 1/5 why is she teal

see apple this is how you do a tasteful gradient 5/5

I just went looking for a song my dad used to play on the guitar when I was little and discovered that he totally rewrote the lyrics, which I now can’t fully recall, thus making it impossible for me to reconstruct his (which to my mind is “the correct”) version of the song. 

He also totally changed the melody. 

MY CHILDHOOD MUSICAL EDUCATION WAS A LIE.

I wonder if Mum still has his tabs somewhere. Probably not, I don’t know what happened to his guitar but I strongly doubt she has kept either it or his songbook for the past twenty five years.

pete g. allinson spends four days to a week trying to photograph the sperm whales off the coast of dominica. there are about 150 whales living in the area, and allinson uses a hydrophone to find their general location, and then waits patiently for the whales come to the surface to breathe and socialize.

allinson, giving the whales plenty of space and using a snorkel so as not disturb the animals with the bubbles of a scuba tanks, then gets into the water in the hopes that they will approach him.  

notes allison, “when they interact with us they approach us very closely, rolling over again and again, trying to get us to rub their abdomens and bodies. when you start getting close to them you feel nervous and intimidated, and then as they interact with you, you feel intense pleasure. you realise they are intelligent.”  

he adds, "they are truly beautiful creatures and i photograph them in the hopes of helping to save the whales. the more people who understand these wonderful animals the better”  

sperm whales have been hunted for the last three hundred years by those seeking the oily white spermeceti found in their heads, which has been used in everything from lamp oil to cosmetics to pharmaceutical compounds, and which gives the whales their name.

currently listed as a vulnerable species, sperm whale numbers have rebounded thanks to hunting bans, though this still puts them at a fraction of their pre whaling numbers. 

Through this you will learn the strength of utilizing your own capabilities and those of your trusted allies. You will learn various ways of looking at the difficulties and challenges before and there are lessons as part of this…

Yesterday’s episode was insane and I think Keyleth did a great job during her Aramente. Keeping in mind that she has to prepare her spells in advance:

- Daylight spell: without this the majority of the party would’ve had 5-10 feet of vision

- Delegating lodestone retrieval: leadership

- control water: tactical player and kraken movement, expelled the ink that would’ve completely blinded everyone

- animal shape (electric eels): freed all of her allies from the grip of the Kraken simultaneously, allowed a short time of enhanced swimming, lightning immunity

- healing spells: to stay alive

- plane shift: has to decide between saving herself in killer whale form or getting the most team members to safety as possible. Safely removes twins and prevents more deaths.

- grasping vines: attempts to free allies from the grasps of the tentacle

There is probably more, but you get the point. They got the 3 lodestones and the Kraken did not die. She is just as much an MVP as Grog was.

petition for the fourth AOS Star Trek to be about going back in time to save the whales.

He loved cars and girls and getting into fights…Neapolitan ice cream and the color green…and most of all he loved the thrill of being Robin.


Jason Todd falls in love.

It’s easy for him, Bruce observes. Like water, or like breathing. His heart bleeds each and every time, but he can’t help it.

He falls in love each time.

The first that Bruce knew of was a girl in his art class. Her pale hair always tangled in a bun, and she always managed to look like a half-frightened deer. But Jay loved her with the shy love of a twelve year old, with the reckless idea that seventh grade lasts forever.

Then there was Rena. Oh, but did that boy moon over Rena. She was sharp, but in that intriguing sort of way. Like a brambleberry bush and its thorns, all brown and dry but full of promise. She hurt him, in the way young girls always do. Too inexperienced to really care, at least properly. Jason was devastated, but he was still a child. Childhood love becomes lodged in you, a tender memory that loses its pain as time goes on. Eventually your wound goes golden and you look back fondly.

There were others, a rainbow of girls ranging from interests and hobbies and, hell, once he hit high school, philosophies. Jason always had girls around. He liked girls, genuinely liked them. And girls liked Jason, because he treated them like people. His soft words and smiling eyes helped some too, but Jason was never interested in fooling. He was upfront and clear as glass and just…Jay.

anonymous asked:

How can you love Ariel when she gave up her voice for a man??

Because I’m a human capable of critical analysis with multiple thoughts about a piece of media, of enjoying something while acknowledging it contains ‘problematic’ content, and of just straight up just loving a film from my childhood.

Not everything you consume has to be 100% pro feminism veganism anti climate change save the whales. It’s okay to switch that side of your brain off and sing along to a Disney movie that was made 40+ years ago.

Anyway, I always saw Ariel as a fierce, strong willed and independent character. Unlike her sisters, she refused to settle for the life her father planned for her, remaining under the sea. She wanted to explore - and did. She wanted to find love - and did. Some princesses waited around (or slept) and hoped a prince would come to them, she went out and made it happen. She took a gamble for love, and I don’t think that’s inherently wrong. She’d been dreaming of escaping her life and adventuring on land for years, he was that opportunity.

Finally, she was only 16. I’m sure as heck not going to chastise her (or a film) for her decisions at that age, I know girls who did things almost as wild for a boy at 16. I still think Ariel is a confident, funny, passionate role model but I really just answered the question from a much simpler place. She was my favourite Disney princess growing up and still brings me joy to this day. It’s okay ☺🐠
