shes actually a dude

HOLY SHIT DUDES, HOW DID WE MISS THIS?  

So I was relistening to ‘Page Turner’, since I’m trying to put together a better picture of the various human players in the supernatural in the show.  Anyway, there’s a throwaway reference to the narrator encountering a 2007 Ebay listing for ‘The Key of Solomon’ 1863, owned by MacGregor Mathers and Jurgen Leitner.  And who purchased this book for 1200 pounds?  One GRBookworm1818.

The Magnus Institute was established in 1818.

Gertrude fucking Robinson bought herself a Leitner in 2007.

reasons why the princess diaries 2 is actually the best movie ever made

ok so i know that when we were all young fanchildren we all watched this movie and sighed dreamily. but i am here to tell u that this movie is even better than u remember

1. the main conflict in the movie is the arranged marriage. i’m gonna stop right here, because princesses in arranged marriages are a classic fanfiction trope that we are all trash for. don’t lie to yourself. but it gets BETTER. not only is there an arranged marriage… the guy she’s arranged to marry is actually a really chill dude. u like this dude. u know they would be good friends and partners. he would make a good king. but sHE DOESNT LOVE HIM!!! she doesn’t love him. and it would be so easy for the narrative to say ~oh look at this selfish girl she has a handsome titled good man ready to marry her she’s so SELFISH for wanting passion and true love, so naive~ (see fuckboys: i’m so nice and handsome why doesn’t she love me she’s horrible) instead the narrative presents her not marrying him as a perfectly valid choice and one the viewer sides with her on. the narrative supports her choice and makes it clear it was the right decision. ADDITIONALLY, the solution presented to fix the arranged marriage problem is to DESTROY THE PATRIARCHY. like???? don’t fuck with me this movie is perfect

2. literally the other main conflict is the love interest. he’s essentially a conman trying to convince mia to fall passionately in love with him so he can steal the throne. but along the way… he falls in love with her. THIS IS LITERALLY THE PLOT OF THREE THOUSAND FANFICTIONS PEOPLE

3. speaking of fanfiction…this movie is one. like, i’m not even joking. the first princess diaries movie essentially compiled the first 3 books into a movie, but the sequel wasn’t based on the books at all. disney just pulled something out of their asses and was like “this will make the fangirls happy”

4. at the beginning of the movie mia graduates from princeton’s woodrow wilson school of international affairs… literally one of the best international studies programs on the planet.. then she’s flown to a castle…where she’s a princess..and has hot men falling all over her…and wears ballgowns…like…mia is such a mary sue but somehow the movie manages to avoid making her one AT ALL

5. also holy shit??! mia doesn’t just stand around looking pretty as a princess.. she’s clearly really smart and genuinely cares about the people of genovia and does her best to serve them well even to it’s hard work… like damn mia is fucking committed to being a good queen she’s not just a princess because castles make good backdrops for romances

6. the queen/joe YAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS u fucking know u shipped that shit

7. THE ENTIRE MOVIE IS ABOUT FUCKING THE PATRIARCHY. MIA IS PORTRAYED AS KIND AND SENSITIVE BUT THAT ADDS TO HER APPEAL AS A RULER NOT DETRACTS FROM IT. AT THE END OF THE MOVIE SHE’S LIKE “fuck these rules written by old white men, i’m gonna make my own less sexist rules” AND THEN SHE FUCKING DOES?!? SHE FUCKING CALLS OUT THE SEXISM OF THE LAWS AND THEN CHANGES THEM. HELLO WOMEN IN PARLIAMENT! GOODBYE BOYS CLUBS! A WOMAN IS FULLY CAPABLE OF RULING ON HER OWN WITHOUT A MAN AND SHE FUCKING DRILLS THAT INTO THEIR GODDAMN HEADS

8. chris pine. what a hot piece of ass amiright

9. the number of times something fucking bizarre happens to mia and she theoretically looks into the camera like she’s on the office is comedic gold honestly. the maids?? flirting with her arranged husband?? climbing out a window?? the fAKE LEG!? mia is just trying to live her life but the universe keeps fucking it up. i feel u mia. 

in sum i have n o idea how the fuck this movie got made but goddamn is it not god’s gift to man

THIS DUDE LITERALLY JUST FAKE GEEK GIRLED MINAKO FUCKING AINO

Isn’t it awesome how this topic from a twenty-five year old manga is 100% relevant right this very second.

I’ve written things before about how Bajorans seems to have a different approach to names than I’m used to. “Nerys” is only used by Kira’s close friends.

Right now I’m watching the ds9 finale. What I missed last time I watched it is how Winn snaps at Dukat when he refers to her as Adami. This is after she found out the handsome dude she slept with was actually the genocidal dictator of her people.

Winn says “Stop calling me Adami. That privilege is no longer yours”. Which confirms what I was thinking. For Bajorans the use of someone’s second name (As in not their family name) is a privilege bestowed on those who earn the right. Not something you do routinely when you get to know someone better. 

I actually think this is a brilliantly subtle thing done by the writers. It’s a consistently applied Bajoran tradition that is used to both connote close bonds - and lack thereof. Winn wants to distance herself from Dukat and denounce their previous intimacy, so she very symbolically ousts him from her personal sphere by telling him to stop calling her by her name.

Minako repeatedly if inadvertently making this poor guy’s life hell legit made me laugh.

THOUGH ALSO HER JUST GRABBING SOME RANDOM GUY LIKE “PAY FOR THESE PEOPLE YOU’VE NEVER MET”

anonymous asked:

Has Camilla ever done with it somebody or does she only see other people (with the exception of James) as food?

She’s actually done it with hundreds of human dudes throughout history and as a result has sired dozens upon dozens of half-vampire/half-human kids over the centuries. It’s ironic as most people wouldn’t look at a pint-sized woman of her size and stature and think “bastion of fertility with a lot of kids” but looks can indeed be deceiving. 

She has varying relationships with all of them, from great, to pretty crummy. But you honestly can’t get mad at a kid for hating their mom cause she ate their dad over something petty 200 years ago.  

James is just the most recent on a string of relationships she’s had through history, had but she’s already enjoying him the most. 

but when am i going to get my past!b99 episode

kid!Jake and kid!Gina hanging out at nana’s apartment, watching house party 2 way too many times because it was a pajama-jammie-jam and they had no choice, their hands were tied. all their school shenanigans; getting into trouble every now and then; Gina manipulating other kids to help them do their homework while Jake feels guilty but goes along with it because he doesn’t want to do homework

academy!Jake and academy!Rosa meeting and becoming friends after a few weeks when she realizes he’s not just another annoying white guy and actually a pretty sweet dude that she’s gotta protect a little. also Rosa’s hair is a non-human color assuming she’s still not out from her phase in ballet school when she had her hair dyed pink. them groaning together about all the dumb drills and coming up with stupid fun things to do (usually instigated by Jake) which gets them in trouble and causes them to have to do more drills which they then complain about again

Terry and Holt working together at the One-Eight, putting all those prejudiced cops in their places and doing such good work for the community no one feels comfortable saying even one racist slur in their presence

Charles and Jake meeting for the first time and becoming friends- it’s not immediate but Jake realizes that Charles is a truthworthy friend who has his back and what kind of person would he be if he didn’t have Charles’s back too?

Jake and Amy meeting for the first time- because please we need this

Gina meeting everyone for the first time

Terry meeting all the detectives for the first time and finding out their little quirks and flaws- Jake can be a little bit of a lone wolf sometimes because he wants to have the glory of solving a huge case to himself, Amy can be a little too uptight and let her stress cloud her mind and affect her decision making, Rosa punches anything that pisses her off, and Charles has accidentally punched himself once while facing off with a criminal he was supposed to arrest. But he sees all their good qualities too- and he believes in each of them early on and knows that they’re all amazing detectives who are going to be great at their jobs, and he loves watching them prove him right over the years like the proud mama hen he is

I was only asking because I saw someone sending your art to Koogi on Twitter w/out credits or anything & I just had to make sure

Oh no it isnt you I’m mad at please dont think that!!!! I’m really thankful that you told me, I would never have noticed myself.

Im just a little pissy at the dude who reposted my art on twitter in the first place and didn’t credit, but this is the internet afterall and I’ll start watermarking my things from now on ‘-_-

I need the beginnings of the jacklardo friendship

like. I remember first reading year 1 and jack looked so Soft and Happy to see lardo when she got back from kenya and it was so surprising?? bc he was such a grumpy bastard back then and really didn’t smile at all

how did they get there? was it natural, just two quiet practical people bonding amongst the mayhem of a college sports team? or did jack annoy the fuck out of lardo when he tried to micromanage everything, completely lacking faith in a freshman (undeclared) art major to know how to manage hockey?? did shitty start dragging them both along to parties and dinner and Annie’s? DID THEY MAKE AWKWARD ACQUAINTANCE SMALLTALK? Enquiring minds need to know

this “daily doodle” turned into more of a “daily draw challenge”

I tried emulating Hisasi’s style while drawing her cut-in pose from DFCI but it just ended up looking like my style again

anonymous asked:

You thought børns was a lady at first?

yes! very early on. like when 10,000 emerald pools and electric love were on my new music friday spotify playlist from the candy EP way before dopamine was out. i just never googled him at all. and my brain just thought it was a woman because of the key and the range. i was actually mildly upset when i found out she was actually a dude because i thought she was a boss, slightly old-school rock husky belty lesbian, but obv garrett is great and i appreciate his commitment to cropped tops.
