that name rings a bell

“Tess, Tess, Tessa.
Was there ever a more beautiful sound than your name? To speak it aloud makes my heart ring like a bell. Strange to imagine that, isn’t it – a heart ringing – but when you touch me that is what it is like: as if my heart is ringing in my chest and the sound shivers down my veins and splinters my bones with joy.
Why have I written these words in this book? Because of you. You taught me to love this book where I had scorned it. When I read it for the second time, with an open mind and heart, I felt the most complete despair and envy of Sydney Carton. Yes, Sydney, for even if he had no hope that the woman he loved would love him, at least he could tell her of his love. At least he could do something to prove his passion, even if that thing was to die.
I would have chosen death for a chance to tell you the truth, Tessa, if I could have been assured that death would be my own. And that is why I envied Sydney, for he was free.
And now at last I am free, and I can finally tell you, without fear of danger to you, all that I feel in my heart.
You are not the last dream of my soul.
You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.
With hope at least,
Will Herondale”

Random thoughts off the top of my head follows:

I adore the way that the clip from ‘The One Show’ completely mirrors the scene in TAB set in 221b when John & Sherlock are about to swan off to the morgue & leave Mary behind.

Mary asks: “Am I just to sit here?” And John replies (in typical condescending Victorian husband way) “Not at all my dear, we’ll be hungry later.” (insinuating that she can busy herself cooking because that’s all she’s good for as a wife in this situation.) (Mycroft obviously knows better)

Whereas this (Modern time, supposedly a more equal world) clip shows that gender doesn’t matter, it’s the skill set that matters to Sherlock, he is going off hunting down whatever is at the market and their trudge to ‘Barnicott’s house’. so Sherlock has texted Mary to turn up at the house where the dog is, so they can rendezvous to enable John to take the baby home, only Mary says to bring John with them. It’s just a beautiful mirror to that TAB scene, but with a lovely sense of equality, meaning they all can go rather than anyone having to stay behind.

I remember during the TAB preview time Mofftis said a lot about how Victorian times were so bad towards women & I think they showed that relatively well in TAB, but it’s lovely to see them transposing this now to the modern day and truly resetting Conan Doyle to modern times, by putting right his meager showing of womens actual abilities, and that men can look after babies equally as well as women.

I’ve always thought that this was a great part of what Mofftiss mean when they say that they are re-writing Sherlock the way they think it should be for this age.

Situation: There has to be a wedding in the story

Emotion: Longing

Song: Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Written from Dean’s POV

Warning: It’s super angsty



Sitting in the diner Sam’s eyebrows came together as he stared at the pages of the local newspaper. “Dean, didn’t you know a girl named Y/F/N Y/L/N?”

Your heart immediately started to race at the sound of her name but you tried to remain calm. “Uh, it rings a bell, I think, why?”

“She’s getting married this weekend. The announcement is in the paper.”

Sam kept talking but you didn’t hear any of it. Memories of Y/N came flooding back, even more so than when you had seen the signs of a case in her hometown.

AA7 Wishlist

For AA7 I wish a lot of things, but mostly even gayer stuff ~

  1. Capcom still owes me Feenie and Edgey sharing the stand.
  2. I want more Daddyworth being sweet with daughter Trucy just like Turnabout Revolution ending.
  3. Franziska? Gumshoe? Do these names ring a bell? (also Godot but I know it’s a dream).
  4. Really, guys, I reaaaally want to know about Kristoph’s black psyche-locks. Please tell me you didn’t forget about this plot.
  5. I know Apollo is working at Khura’in, but I don’t care. Bring him back to Wright Anything Agency.
  6. And speaking of the horned devil… Thalassa, ~tell them you’re their mother~ forgod’ssakeyou’reactinglikeaterriblemotheryouspentyourlifewithoutyourchildrenthey’regrowingupwithoutamotherandadhasidhaosihaofihhaaaaa
  7. No more twins.
  8. No more evil twins.
  9. Stop giving Apollo fathers and then killing them. It hurts.
  10. Athena deserves a ~real case~ without help. She’s capable. Turnabout Storyteller is a sham for her. (I loved Blackquill by my side tho, please bring him back, he’s hot).
  11. More Pearl!Trucy
  12. More Junithena.
  13. More Klapollo (just to make you guys happy ~)
  14. And of course, more Narumitsu.
  15. Maya as a leader of Fey clan (but still a sweet, clumsy person juuust the way she is).
  16. Apollo and Maya interacting.
  17. Phoenix still acting like a daddy for Pearl (coughough and Edgey as well)
  18. Any subliminal quote about Kay, Sebastian or Justine. I’d be so warm.
  19. Another female prosecutor, as strong as Franny.
  20. And please do not forget about Rayfa, Buff and Datz. They’re precious.

Am I asking too much, Capcom? Am I? ಠ_ಠ

Tess, Tess, Tessa.

Was there ever a more beautiful sound than your name? To speak it aloud makes my heart ring like a bell. Strange to imagine that, isn’t it – a heart ringing – but when you touch me that is what it is like: as if my heart is ringing in my chest and the sound shivers down my veins and splinters my bones with joy.

Why have I written these words in this book? Because of you. You taught me to love this book where I had scorned it. When I read it for the second time, with an open mind and heart, I felt the most complete despair and envy of Sydney Carton. Yes, Sydney, for even if he had no hope that the woman he loved would love him, at least he could tell her of his love.

I would have chosen death for a chance to tell you the truth, Tessa, if I could have been assured that death would be my own. And that is why I envied Sydney, for he was free.

And now at last I am free, and I can finally tell you, without fear of danger to you, all that I feel in my heart.

You are not the last dream of my soul.

You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.

With hope at least,

About the twist concerning Korekiyo...

On /drg/ I read something about Korekiyo’s real name being Miyadera (due to the fact that she turned out to be female). After looking the name up, I found out that miyadera is actually a Japanese type/variant of Buddhist temples.

Actually, in Japanese, Buddhistic temples are generally called…jingu-ji! Doesn’t that name ring a bell? That’s some pretty clever naming, if you ask me (and not to mention it’s very fitting for the Ultimate Cultural Anthropologist)!

when people ask why I like fictional boys:

  • regular boys: sup, wanna hang?

Actually I think I vaguely remember stacking cups. The name ‘speed stacking’ rings a bell, and now I think some surreal memories are about to resurface

Jurassic World is close to us, so I wanted to take a moment to remember someone that won’t be here to see it happens.

Meet Stan Winston.

If the name doesn’t ring a bell, he’s the guy that worked on every non-CGI dinosaur from Jurassic Park/The Lost World/Jurassic Park III. And many don’t even realize how many there were!

Oh, but that is not all.

He is also the guy that created and gave ”life” to some other movie stars…

The characters of The Wiz? Stan Winston.

The Dog-Thing from The Thing? Stan Winston.

The Terminators of the original Terminator trilogy? PLUS Terminator Salvation? Stan Winston.

The Alien-Queen of Aliens? Stan Winston.

All the monsters of The Monster Squad? Stan Winston.

The Predator from Predator I and II? Stan Winston.

Pumpkinhead? Stan Winston.

The iconic hands of Edward Scissorhands? Stan Winston.

The Penguin looks form Batman Returns? Stan Winston.

And

so

many
