the best cast to ever exist

10

To the wonderful cast of Bones: it has been an amazing journey and an experience of a lifetime to be a fan of yours. As a fandom, we have been so so lucky to have witnessed all that you have to offer, and all that can be achieved when you have a group of extremely humble and dedicated actors together. A group of actors who all like each other so much, and who get along so well, and who then form their own makeshift family. “There’s more than one kind of family” - this quote is so, so true for both the characters on Bones as well as their respective real-life counterparts. To say that I’m going to miss Bones so much is an understatement, because, as every true Bones fan knows and understands, it’s not just the show that we will miss - it’s everything. The cast, the crew, the behind-the-scenes action - we will miss it all. And I dare say that our cast is, and will always be, the best cast that has ever existed. Period.

So, to our dearest Emily, David, Michaela, TJ, Tamara, (new) John and (old) John, Eric, Patricia, Michael, Pej, Eugene, Carla, Laura, Ignacio, Joel, Luke, Brian, and to everyone else, especially Hart, Stephen, Kathy, Michael and Jonathan; on behalf of the fandom, I’d like to express my heartfelt gratitude for everything that you have given us with this beautiful, one-of-a-kind show. Thank you for all the memories, and fun, and joy, and laughter that you have brought into our lives. Thank you for being who you are, and for always acknowledging us as well - it just makes the experience of being YOUR fan all the more fun and awesome. You’ll be in our hearts, always. 

They say that “you can love a lot of people shows in this world, but there’s only one person show that you’ll love the most”. For me, that’s Bones, and that is all thanks to the most amazing cast to ever exist. 

Happy birthday to Melissa! @mcbridemelissa 

May every moment of your birthday be the happiest you’ve ever had, and may your happiness spill over to every other day of the year. I wish you all the best things in both personal life and career.

Thank you for exist and making my day a bit brighter always. ❤❤❤

Smile brightly as you always do! 

The Joker x Reader - “Operation Broken Twig”

You were trying to dust off the vaulted ceiling at the penthouse, fell off the ladder and broke your right ankle and left wrist. You’ll be out of commision for a while and The Joker is not sure what to do with you yet: being gentle and sympathetic are definitely not his strengths.

Almost 12 at night

You struggle to move your body closer to J in a pitiful attempt to cuddle. He just watches you squirm, not helping one bit, adamant in not scooting over. The proud recipient of a huge smug grin on his face.

“What?” you ask, panting from the effort when you finally reach your destination that was only a few inches away but took a lot of work due to your present misfortune.

“I’m plotting your murder, Doll, gotta put you out of your misery. You look so pathetic, just like a broken twig. What would be the best way to send you off to a better place, hm?” he pretends to debate, but you realize he’s probably 50% serious.

“No killing,” you yawn, placing your casted arm on his shoulder since you can’t really hug him.

“This thing is heavy, I don’t like it,” The Joker pushes your hand away. You whimper, discontent at his gesture.

“Don’t be mean to me, I am already very uncomfortable,” you remind him and bury your face in his neck, all needy and whiny for once. He’s not used to you like this because…well, nothing like this happened before.

“I was thinking to suffocate you with a pillow after you fall asleep, what do you think?” he pretends not to hear your words.

“No killing I said,” you pout and immediately smile when his arm goes around your waist. “Hey, baby, would you be sad if I’d die?” you inquire, curious to see what aberration he’ll come up with. He always has some smart ass answer.

“Maybe…” You elbow him. “Probably…” You start  a fake cry on his shoulder. “Definitely…” he growls when you bite his skin “…NOT.”

“I know you’d miss me, don’t pretend,” you sniffle.

“Yeah, of couuurrseeee, how could I not miss such a huge pain in my butt?!” he sarcastically answers.

“Hey, are you rolling your eyes?”

“How did you know?” more sass comes your way, thanks to your boyfriend’s supporting attitude. J is a natural when it comes to this stuff.  T__T

“I felt a soft breeze and I figured it must be from your fluttering eyelashes. Auuuchhh,” the laud spank you felt through the fabric of your boy-shorts make you scream. “Hey, that really hurt! I don’t need more pain!!!”

“Perfect, precisely what I was aiming for.” He is very satisfied with himself, you can tell by the tone in his voice. “Since we’re reached such a positive place right now…”

“A-ha,” you mutter, not convinced.

“…I was hoping we can have some fun. I’m in the mood!” he smacks his lips and you giggle, forgetting you were upset.

“Is there a day when you’re not in the mood, J?”

“No, not really. Come on, Y/N, Daddy wants you.”

“Hold on,” you fight to get on your elbow, because, you know, you’re in the mood also but was too lazy to do something about it. Plus, with a casted arm and ankle, it’s not the easiest. ”Stay where you are, I’m coming,” you huff, kind of rolling over and kind of crawling on top of him.

Man, this is more entertaining than any show, J laughs to himself, resting both hands under his head, just lying there, enjoying you straining so much and not doing anything to help. It won’t be fun if he does.

You finally manage to straddle him and take a deep breath, already tired. You begin to pull your tank top over your head with the good hand and your head gets stuck inside it. It’s really hard to do things with one arm.

“J…J…can you help me please? I’m trapped.”

“Naaahh, figure it out, Pumpkin,” he snickers and you get frustrated.

“Help me out! I can’t breathe,” you complain, pulling on the fabric but it won’t budge.

“Good, this way you can put yourself out of the misery and I won’t have to do anything,” The Joker laughs but helps you and now you’re free. “Why do you even wear clothes, Princess? Sleep naked like me, I’m ready to go at any time,” he points out.

“You know I usually sleep naked too, but now that I’m like this it actually feels more soothing wearing clothes, OK?” And you lean over to kiss him but he must say it:

“How are you going to take your underwear off, huh? I’m not helping you, do it yourself.”

“Oh, come on,” you sigh, flustered. “Stop being stubborn and help a woman in need, would you? I know you want to,” you wink, wishing you didn’t have to depend on his whims.

J pushes you off him and you land on your back, felling a sharp pain in your ankle.

“Hey, be gentle!” you admonish him, annoyed he’s so reckless.

“I am! I didn’t break another arm or leg, did I ??!! Be grateful I’m taking care of things,” he pulls on your boy-shorts, licking his lips.

“Taking care of things?!” you almost shout when he eagerly yanks them off you, tossing them to the side of the bed.

“You really look like a turtle on its back, compleeeeetely helpless. I really need to put you out of your misery,” he grins, creeping up on top of you, biting his way up to your neck.

“No killing,” you moan, accidentally resting your casted arm on his back, even if you know he hates it.

“Too heavy,” he mumbles and pushes it away. “Just use your other arm, Kitten, yes?”

“Yes, your Majesty, sorry to…Auuucchhhh,” you fret when you feel the skin burning under another spank.

“Ahhhh, so unfortunate you have an attitude when, in fact, you can’t afford to. I’m gonna punish you and there’s nothing you can do about it,” J closes his eyes for a few seconds, taking it all in, pleased to take revenge.

“Like…ummmm…what exactly are we talking about here?” you gulp, staring in his blue eyes that got darker at the mischievous immediate future he has in store for you.

“You should have worried about it before you opened your mouth Doll,” your boyfriend snarls, getting on his knees.

*******************

You hop using your crutches, determined to get on the scale. J lifts his head from his laptop, intrigued at your action. He’s in bed, enjoying a slow morning.

“What are you doing, Pumpkin?!”

“Weighting myself,” you inform him, balancing on the glass plate, waiting for the digits to show up.

“What for?!” J wants to know, intrigued.

But you don’t answer:

“Oh my God, I gained 5 pounds!” you cover your mouth in shock.

“So?” he narrows his eyes, not getting what the fuss is all about.

“I gained 5 pounds since last week!!” and it doesn’t make you happy to say the least.

“I don’t care, get over it; more for Daddy to love,” he chuckles, blowing his green hair off his face. He certainly doesn’t give a crap about this new issue of yours.

“I care!” you frown, worried. “It will be a while until I can take the cast off, what am I supposed to do?!? I can’t work out, I can’t really even walk…There is only one way I can burn calories right now,” and you glare at the Joker since he’s your only hope.

“Let me guess…” he nonchalantly chuckles. “More sex?”

You keep on nodding yes, desperate.

“Want me to land my services even more than I already do?”

More nodding, more despair.

“Wanna kill me, woman?!”

“No, I just wanna put you out of your misery,” you smirk, hoping back to the bed.

J starts laughing, pleased your quirky whit actually delights him most of the time. 

“Come on, baby, take one for the team,” you beg, leaning your crutches against the nightstand, and using your fingers from the good hand to walk them down his abs, pouting in anticipation.

“You are soooo damn lucky I don’t want to kill you 100% of the time,” and you know you’ll have to listen to a very well put together speech, but you gotta if you want to reach your goal. He keeps on rambling: “I have murderous intents to each and single person I know or don’t know, but you…you’re unique: I only feel like killing you 90% of the time.”

“Woooww, you really know how to make a girl feel special J,” you praise him and the sarcasm in your voice is still evident.

Well, you never learn.

He lifts you up on the bed, dragging you in the middle of it, irritated.

“Well, little broken twig, since you obviously have a temper, let me give you a lesson you’ll never forget,” he rips your undies off, anger at your words.

“Does it involve sex…please?” you feel the need to check since it’s crucial for your general well-being.

“Yeah!” J shortly replies, trying to rip your bra but he can’t so he gives up.

“Thank heavens,” you smile, relieved. “Do you need help, baby?” you offer since you don’t want him to change his mind.

“I don’t need help from a helpless twig, I can manage just fine, got it?!” he covers your mouth, staring at you.

“Yes, your Majesty,” you muffle under his fingers. “Auuchhhh,” you whine when the slap is fast to follow.

“You asked for it!” he threatens, pulling you under him.

********************

J got bored so he started drawing and writing on the arm cast: “Batsy is a jerk” ,“I love mister J”( with a heart by it), “I can’t keep my mouth shut”, “I have the best boyfriend ever”, “King of sex,” and he keeps on scribbling. You don’t care; you’re just happy he’s preoccupied with something so you can play on your phone for a little bit.

“Jaaaayyyy,” you kiss his shoulder, avoiding looking at him.

“Hm?” J lifts his non-existent eyebrows, concentrating on his project.

“Baby, could you please go get me some things?”

“If you are sending me on a wild goose chase for tampons or something, the answer is NO!” J growls, adding “No tampons,” to your white cast.

“I’m good on that, I just need more comfortable underwear, bras and stuff from my boutique. Would you go get them for me? Pretty please?” you meow, blowing him a kiss.

He inhales, starting to get grouchy.

“Do I really have to?!”

“Please, I am so miserable with my poor broken limbs,” you play the weakling card. “I want to be comfy, baby, pleeaaseeeeeeeee,” you squeak and he sneers.

“Stop with the voice, it drives me nuts! I’ll go but I need to be rewarded and I am not thinking about a massage. Did I make myself clear, Princess?”

More nodding, more despair.

“Anything you want, I just need my things!”

*********************

“Illusion” boutique is your favorite. It belongs to one of Mister J’s business partners, the perfect cover-up for what they do behind closed doors. J is going there tonight after closing to roam around and get you what you want, taking a few henchmen with him, just in case. Not that he needs to pay or anything since it’s implied all is free for the King of Gotham and his girl.

The Joker texted his men an hour before departure:
“Get ready to leave in 60- Operation Broken Twig.”

What the hell is Operation Broken Twig?! they all think, intrigued. But they know better than not to ask the burning question.

*********************

The Joker keeps on walking around, stopping in front of a panty display.

“Which ones, Doll?” he points his cell towards the hangers so you can see everything on the camera.

“ Ummm…I want hipsters, size medium, about 7 pairs, the ones with flowers, please.”

“Which ones are the hipsters, Pumpkin?!” he gets aggravated seeing so many styles.

“The ones that look kind of low cut,” you explain, wishing he would keep calm for the rest of his shopping spree. “They have the purple flowers.”

“Then why don’t you say so, Doll, hm?!” he snaps, grabbing a bunch of undies and stashing them in his duffel bag.

“Can you also get me some boy- shorts?”

“Which ones are the boy-shorts, Y/N?!” He’s getting mad.

“The kind I am wearing at night for now,” and it displeases him.

“They all look the same to me!!!” he barks and you sigh.

“The ones with pink flowers and all behind are boy-shorts, baby,” you explain and it’s no use, of course.

J stashes some in his bag again. You try the waters, somewhat nervous:

“Can you also take some briefs with you? The ones with green flowers.”

His mouth opens, speechless. He grabs a pair with only two fingers, disgusted:

“Why in the world they used so much fabric on this one?! Looks like a tent! They could make 50 pairs of the G-strings I like on you, Y/N!!”

“Well, they are very cozy and I need them,” you make a comeback but his stubborn ass won’t have any of it.

“There is NO way you’re wearing this style while I’m still breathing!!!” he tosses the garment to the ground, kicking it with his shoe.

For God’s sake! but can’t vociferate your feelings. At least he’s getting most of what you wanted.

“I need some bras, can you grab the matching ones with my underwear please?”

“What size?” he coldly replies.

“34G.”

He looks through them and begins to toss items in the bag. Of course he’s picking the skimpiest he can find.

“Not those, J! I need the comfortable ones, full cup and minimizers!” you plead, alarmed he’s not listening.

“Minimizers?! Why would you want a minimizer for?!” he rants, actually searching for one. “Daddy wants to see those babies!” he confesses, irked.

“Due to my present condition, I must…”

“Holy Batman!” he blurs out when he finds the bra. “No way you’re wearing this huge thing! My woman can’t be seen with this, not while I’m still breathing!” he drops it to the ground, outraged and steps on it.

You want to cry right now.

“Can you at least get me some sports bras?!” you raise your voice, agitated.

“Sports bras?! You can’t even work out for a while, having sex with me is the most you can do. And I don’t want to see a flipping…” he finds the right tag, reads it and calms down. “Oh, this is a sports bra?! Not too bad, this pink will look good on you,” he concludes, stuffing more colors in the duffel bag.

You lean back on your chair, relieved. Thank goodness, Holy Batman and whoever else. 

**********************

“Shit, I gained 3 more pounds,” you scream at the scale, almost tipping over from the revelation of the electronic numbers under your feet.

“Want me to put you out of your misery?” your boyfriend volunteers, aiming his gun at you with one eye closed. “Bang!” he pretends to shoot, but you are aware he contemplates it.

“No, baby, all I need is your services, obviously,” you give him a puppy gaze, jumping on your good leg towards the bed.

“Again?! You already needed my services three times today Kitten!” he scratches his head, placing the gun under the pillow.

You show him his own writing on the cast: “King of sex.”

“You have to help me!!! You really have to! Three more pounds!!!” you swallow the lump in your throat.“It’s imperative you take one for the team!”
“Hmmm, I guess I can…But I am in the mood for crazy stuff and I don’t mean a massage, understand?” he bites your finger when you caress his lips.

More nodding, more despair.

“Yeah, I don’t care, just do it!”

“Happy to oblige then,” he grins, pushing you on the bed and you feel discomfort in your broken ankle and wrist from the impact.

“Hey, be careful!” you whimper, wiggling under him.

“Oh, my, did I break something else?” he fakely sulks, worried…NOT.

“I swear I’m going to leave you when I get better if you don’t…” you mutter, but…

“I’m sorry??!?” he violently takes your t-shirt off, not liking what he hears.

You never learn.

“I planned to be as gentle as possible and I am not the type, but now, I’ll have to punish you again,” and the wide, eerie smirk on his face makes you gulp.

“Does it involve sex…please?”

“Yeah! Duh, I know you have to burn your calories,” he pins your good hand above your head and you sigh, grateful.

Thank goodness, Holy Batman and whoever else.

Saw Spiderman Homecoming yesterday (best spiderman movie ever) and Donald Glover was in it and his character mentioned he had a nephew. Been following the whole “Cast Donald Glover as Spiderman” thing but never really thought that would happen because Miles Morales, the other Spiderman, exist already and is about 15 or so in the comics right now. Shout out to Logic, Spiderman (Miles) is black please acknowledge him.
Anyways Glover’s character mentions he has a nephew and my ears perked up. Miles has an uncle named Aron Davis aka, “The Prowler” a sometimes supercriminal sometimes antihero sometimes Spiderman sidekick (it varies by universe). So today I looked up the cast for Homecoming on IMDB and sure enough Donald’s character was infact Aaron Davis MEANING if Sony doesn’t fuck this up (please don’t fuck this up Sony. Please keep your partnership with Disney please don’t fuck this up) We should be getting Miles into the MCU as Spiderman around the same time Tom Holland’s Peter Parker graduates from College!!!!!!! That’s a long long ways down the line and things can change but good lord am I hyped!

Because despite the obvious reasons for my excitement (Black Hispanic Spiderman les gooo), you best believe Marvel Studios’ll be rolling out the entire Champions line up INCLUDING The shifting roster we see happening in Secret Empire! Kamala Khan, Riri Williams, Lunella Lafayette, Samuel Alexander, Amadeus Cho, Viv Vision…
And there’s a chance here… an opportunty for some Young Avengers too. America Chavez, Billy Kaplan, Teddy Altman, Cassie Lang… Both Patriots (probably a composite Patriot)
I’m just kinda rambling now. What I’m trying to say is, there’s hope. Miles is pretty much in the bag at this point, and that puts all of the new generation in a damn good position.

big, corny post

i’ve been really thinking all day about 2x15 of lucifer, and how much i loved it. it’s such a good episode and the thing is i truly feel every episode of lucifer is good but this episode really highlighted why i love the show so much. like, a lot of people say that the lucifer fandom is so calm and peaceful (which is, for the most part, true) but i really think that very much comes down to the fact that we have very little to ever be angry about. i’m not saying it’s perfect but we’re calm and peaceful cause it’s truly a good fucking show. and that’s. rare. these writers not only care about us as an audience, but they care about every single character and every single relationship on the show. every relationship gets attention and care and importance. every character is multi-faceted and developed.

My review of Almost Adults

I really wanted to like this movie. I did. I was a backer after all! For all its faults I enjoyed the Carmilla series and the chemistry between Elise Bauman and Natasha Negovanlis, so I was excited to see what they could do together in a feature film setting. But after finishing Almost Adults, I come away feeling a bit empty.
Let’s start with the good;

• The acting is decent, at least that of the leads (more on that later). Not GREAT but I think we all know that Elise and Natasha were never very strong actors. The film plays to their strengths, giving them lots of opportunities for witty back and forth and playful squabbling.

• The comedic moments in the film are for the most part enjoyable, particularly the light banter between Mackenzie and Cassie. These characters are the most believable in these interactions, their friendship feels genuine and unforced.

• Elise Bauman smooches some ladies through the course of the film, can’t complain about that.

Unfortunately there’s a lot more bad then good. Let’s unpack that.

• The leads are unlikeable. Their characters are both incredibly self involved, which really seems to be the central conflict of them film; They’re so wrapped up in themselves and their own issues that they’re completely oblivious to what’s going on with their apparent best friend. Mackenzie is the worse of the two; she complains to her gay best friend when her parents are supportive of her coming out, complaining that they should have been more upset.  “My parents told me I was an abomination and that I was going to burn in hell for all eternity” says the gay best friend. “Rub it in my face” replies Mackenzie. It’s played for laughs, but Mackenzie just comes across as a petulant child. She’s also completely unaware of how having a Tumblr girlfriend would come across to her actual girlfriend. I know she’s new to lesbianning and everything but I just don’t buy that level of ignorance. Come on dude.

• On the note of Mackenzie’s ignorance; you put your finger in her vagina and just…left it there? Really? Have you ever masturbated? There is no way a human person would think that would work. Jesus.

•  Has a really weak supporting cast. Levi in particular isn’t so much a character as he is a walking gay best friend stereotype. He’s camp and bitchy. He exists to dole out advice and insult the lead characters fashion choices. I literally don’t know anything else about him. The other supporting characters aren’t any better, the scene with Cassie and Mackenzie’s parents made me cringe. Not sure if the acting or the script but wow.

• I said i enjoyed the comedic moments for the most part. The other parts though? There was some definite cringe happening at points, and not in a good way. See ‘finger in vagina’ point above.

• The plot is predictable. It’s all very paint by numbers, there’s no real surprise as to where the story is going. It’s all very bland and inoffensive, I mean if they were going for a ‘mainstream rom-com film’ vibe then…congrats? Those movies are terrible though. It’s like a ninety minute yogurt commercial.

• The film cannot pull off its dramatic moments. I said earlier that Bauman and Negovanlis aren’t strong actors and this comes through most glaringly during the dramatic scenes. I just don’t believe them. There’s no real sense of emotional stakes, no genuine tension. I can forgive predictable plot if a film makes me FEEL something. Simply put, this film does not give me the feelz™.

•  The end was kind of…anti-climactic, and felt rushed? It was cute, don’t get me wrong but, a film shouldn’t leave me saying “Oh. Well okay then”.

It wasn’t a terrible film. But it wasn’t a good film in the worst way, in that it was utterly forgettable. There’s no one point that’s especially bad, but nothing really sticks out in a good way either. It’s basically a movie that shrugs it’s shoulders and says ‘meh, good enough’. 

I really wanted to like this film, but I don’t. 1/5 (fingers in vaginas).

Jalsa, Mumbai                   May 11/12,  2017                 Thu/Fri 12:40 am





Birthday - EF - Deepa Krishna  …. Iris  Israel …. May 12th 2017 be the day of the birth of our loved family Ef .. we wish them the best in life .. and ever …



Blind for Love

Any love .. love of the other, for those that matter and do not matter .. for the love of all, irrespective of caste and creed and so much more .. are all the ‘blind for love’ ..a slogan I wear not my sleeves, but indeed over my chest  .. in the theory of love, there is the unending blindness .. 

In the theory of life there is blindness too .. once life regains its status, we are all so encaptured of its existence, that we succumb .. and succumb hard . It is harsh for any to be in your expectation, but it does happen .. and so we survive in the realm of expectation ..


The IPL extra innings T20 hosted RGV and me for their opening, before the game begins to unfold, and the machinations on the ground of reality begin their journey .. it has been observed many times, by the rash neglect of the management of the facility, by exercising extra precaution in its deliverables !

I do not need the need that is so well spoken about .. I need the need for stimulation and respect .. of fairness and our compulsions, of a new draft about, knowing that the burden of its writing gets resolved and we prosper together as one Group, the burden of realisation shall ever be around, so his muscles .. let me finish this, shall ever remain just to that evaporation  ..


Good night my dears .. and sleep well

You are right about the voltron fandom being a toxic place. There's this post going around about how that if you say that Hunk is a "pure person" or "sunshine" or anything nice, you don't know him and then it goes on to describe his flaws and how you shouldn't complement him because that means you don't care about him. Everyone was literally complaining how Hunk never gets enough love and that he is just resorted to food and fat jokes. He finally gets some recognition and love and now [part 1]

everyone is like “oh if you only focus on the good, you’re not really acknowledging him as a character and you need to stop” There is literally no damn way of pleasing this fandom. There is always drama. There is always some annoying, entitled little 15yo who thinks they are so experienced in the way the world works and believe they know what is best when it comes to a tv show. A thing that has no effect on reality itself and is meant for enjoyment. And all this stupid shipping nonsense [part 2]

Even the cast for voltron could care less about the stupid shipping rules. They even encourage people to broaden their horizons when it comes to it but all these idiots can do is judge and berate people. Like they are best, most innocent people who ever existed and they can do no wrong. I’m sorry to vent like this but I hate it. I hate that this fandom is going to always carry a bad name. I hate that anyone new that enters this fandom is going to be bullied and put down regardless of [part 3]

what they think or do. I just wish things were different and more at peace. I wish it was the ml fandom. With the ml fandom, they are much more accepting. They listen. They look at stuff you tag them in. They are so supportive and generous but nearly everyone in the vld fandom is entitled and think they are above everyone else just because of their stupid little ships. Anyway, sorry for the overload. If you decide to post this then thanks for replying back. If not then oh well [part 4]

I just came to you because I admire your maturity and mind. You have a way with words that I love and I thought this is something that would speak to you. Thanks for reading

You’re not wrong, anon, lol. The VLD fandom is… something else. Which is why I generally try to stay out of it. I’ll voice my opinion if I’m asked a question I want to answer, but generally I’ll keep it out of the tags unless I think it’s worth the drama (which is rarely). I mean, it still gets around anyway, but unlike my ML responses, I won’t usually respond to any of the comments, etc. It doesn’t matter what you say or what you headcanon, someone always has something to say to put it down, no matter the evidence you present or how reasonable you are. The thing with Voltron is that people are so territorial over their headcanons for the characters that anything different is seen as a threat. And that’s mostly due to the creators secrecy about character facts. I’m not blaming the creators–they can reveal whatever they want–but because so much is lacking validity, people are super, super territorial about their own ideas. Usually this is something that is kept to ships, because ship wars are “normal” in a fandom where the canon couples haven’t been determined yet. But because Voltron lacks information from character backgrounds to ages to relationships, everyone is overly territorial about everything. And when something does get revealed, everyone gets petty and nasty as a result.

Look at ML for example. It was set from the get-go who the canon couple would likely be and character information is generally given freely (like last names, ethnicities, etc). So headcanons are killed quickly and even those that ship something outside the lovesquare–like AdriNino–don’t get as much hate (I’m not saying they don’t get any, because they do. Which I don’t understand because it’s a ship that’s not hurting anything, like most ships don’t hurt anything, so, like, leave them be?) as people in the VLD fandom. This is because headcanons and things outside the canon are not seen as threats. 

In Voltron, everything is a threat. And so people go over the deep end because they’re ridiculous and have no chill, and this is, apparently, the perfect outlet for their rage and aggression. 

It’s disgusting and why I take down things I post, like outlines, if they start to cause even a small ruckus because I don’t want to deal with that bullshit in my inbox. 

Like tumblr in general, it’s just not worth the stress because, at the end of the day, the pathetic arguments we have here aren’t going to change the world, so if it’s a place you don’t want to be or you can’t have fun in the discourse, it’s better to just ignore it and do your own thing.

Also, Hunk is a sweetheart no matter his character flaws and anyone who thinks otherwise can fight me. Or try to, but I likely won’t respond XD

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Cast change initial thoughts

Tonight was beautiful. One of the most powerful, wonderful, emotional evenings I have ever experienced. I’m not quite sure where to go from here to be honest. I know people have requested it, but I’m not sure I’m up to doing a full review of the show yet. I need time to digest and reflect and, to be quite frank, cry.

Safe to say that they were throwing their all into today. It was the best I’ve seen it, by a long shot. They are an incredible bunch of people, and I can’t believe how lucky the world has been to exist in the same time as this show. The whole cast was phenomenal, and the raw emotion in that room, and on that stage, was mind-blowing. They have done so much and come so far in a year, and to witness the cumulation of that was wonderful.

I have to mention Jamie though. He was on absolute fucking fire. Yes, there *may* have been a moment where a line escaped him, but he was nailing it all. And his act 4 was so emotionally hard - I was crying. Pure, cathartic, but bloody complicated crying. He did so well. I am so proud.

The queue for stage door was snaking around the theatre: I positioned myself along the side, near where his bike normally is. And waited (me getting nervous as I had to do a Jamie and run for my train). Then… the security guard utters 3 of the best words I’ve ever heard: ‘Jamie Parker’s coming’. And then, there he was. He and Noma legged it to the far end of the line so that no-one as left waiting for ages, and then he finally got to me. He recognised me, said 'Hey you’, and he then, once he’d seen my face and the state I was in but trying to hide, I started to out my arms out and he met me more than halfway with a hug. He thanked me for his gifts, saying they were totally unnecessary. We had a photo, and then he moved onto the next person.

I was in tears. Tonight meant more to me than I can say. In Jamie’s gift bag, I had included a letter (separate to his card) trying to explain why him as Harry means so much to me… and that meant revealing something deeply, deeply personal. I couldn’t find another way to do it, so I put it in there. Him thanking me for the gifts meant that he’d read my letter… and that he knew. That he knew this thing that has shaped who I am today, something that not many people know. And having him in that circle that knows is affirming. Cathartic. Jamie knows a bit more about me and for some reason that makes me calmer. Knowing he knows makes me feel that I can be more myself, that perhaps a little bit more of the front can come down. And that can only be a good thing.

Smoothly? Ya that karamel wasn't here for the panels after Lexa died, clearly. But your tags, I forgot all about Wondercon. Oh my god. The fucking croc question I will never get over how funny and disastrous that was.

wondercon was the best day of my life the embarrassing crocs question the way half the cast just snacked through the entire panel the interviews later that day where eliza was just repeating over and over that lexa was the one her soulmate the only girl she’ll ever love the very one and only but most of all!!! the two minute long question at the end of the panel that came for jason rothenbergs entire existence that still haunts him to this day wondercon was ICONIC

☕️ Angelica Church/Schulyer isn't the best person that ever lived and a great Feminist Icon

Agree. Even the badass ladies we think of like my wife and lover Abby Adams weren’t “feminists” because that idea didn’t really exist (in the way we think anyway). Angelica just got cast in that role cause she roasted Hamilton in the musical and that counts as being a feminist now I guess

so mtv are completely rebooting scream and giving it a new cast for season 3 and i am SO UPSET because i absolutely love that show and part of the reason is because of the cast, i lowkey don’t even wanna watch it anymore because i don’t see the point

  • Hotblood! (completed) - centaurs and villains in the wild west!! plus romance!!

  • and of course… my own webcomic, @heartstoppercomic :)

Sherlock Holmes has appeared on screen so many times over the past 100+ years. Because of the sheer amount of Sherlock Holmes adaptations, it can be hard to figure out what to watch and where to start.

Because of this I’ve narrowed down some of the best of the film and TV adaptations over the years. I’ve included the name, year, main actors, a brief summary, why it’s so good/important, and a trailer, if applicable. Please enjoy.

1. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (TV 1984-85) [Jeremy Brett as Holmes and David Burke]

  • The Granada Holmes series remains today one of the most faithful adaptations to ever exist, and Jeremy Brett holds the title of The Definitive Holmes for good reason. This first season holds faithful to some of the best and most well-known stories that Conan Doyle wrote, beginning with Irene Adler and ending with the Falls of Reichenbach.
  • Definitely the best Holmes adaptation to date-Granada came the closest to adapting every canon story, and did so with minimal changes for the most part. Brett remains today one of the best loved Holmes’ of all time. It also casts Watson as the faithful friend and wonderful, smart man of the canon, something other adaptations would sometimes struggle with. It’s beautifully filmed and has an amazing soundtrack that fits Sherlock Holmes perfectly. A definite staple of film and tv for the Holmesian.
  • Trailer

2. The Hound of The Baskervilles (1939) [Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Watson]

  • The first and arguably the best of Universal’s Sherlock Holmes films. An adaptation straight from the HOUN book, with minor changes and alterations. Unlike the majority of Universal’s Holmes films, Hound of the Baskervilles is set in Victorian times instead of modern day.
  • This film marked the beginning of an era for Sherlock Holmes movies (and also for a bumbling Watson). Rathbone is sharp and truly amazing as Sherlock Holmes, playing him as cutting and cunning as ever, but still with the kindnesses of Holmes that people enjoy. Although perhaps not some of the most faithful Holmes films, these still remain classics and some of the best in many people’s eyes. (my pick was Hound simply because I couldn’t decide on my true favorite–if you like this one, definitely see the rest of the films)
  • Trailer 

3. Sherlock (2010-present) [Benedict Cumberbatch as Holmes and Martin Freeman as Watson]

  • Sherlock is a modern updating of Conan Doyle’s original series, and has gotten VERY popular, VERY quickly all over the globe. Although all the cases have modern twists to them and changes, Many of the plotlines, characters, dialogue bits, and other things come straight from the canon.
  • This series is truly proof of how far Sherlock Holmes has come since the Victorian age and the date of his creation. And definitely proof of a character living way beyond his years. Sherlock is a definite masterpiece, no other word to describe it. Brilliant and clever writing, beautiful cinematography, an incredible soundtrack, utterly fantastic casting, and in the hands of two very devoted and loving Sherlock Holmes fans. The entire series is brilliant and has an amazing storyline that proves why Holmes is so popular as a detective story, but also why the title transcends the genre and becomes more about the detective himself. (My pick is definitely series one, and A Study in Pink for the best episode, but definitely watch the entire series).
  • Trailer (A Study in Pink)

4. The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970) [Robert Stephens as Holmes and Colin Blakely as Watson]

  • An amazing and affectionate take on Sherlock Holmes, the man behind the legend and the public image. The film’s plot starts as Holmes is being asked to have a child with a Russian ballerina (Johnlock shippers will enjoy his reply), shifts to a case of a woman washed up in the Thames and brought to Baker Street, to sightings of the Loch Ness monster, to pre-WWI spies.
  • There’s alot of information and plot strands in this film which makes it very interesting for films scholars and Holmesians alike. However, its loving, if somewhat nearly parody-like, portrayal of Holmes is very amazing to watch. It’s a long but beautiful movie and definitely an influence for many of the Holmes films that follow it.
  • Trailer

5. The Great Mouse Detective (animated, 1986) [Basil of Baker Street and Dr David Q Dawson]

  • Based on the books of Eve Titus, The Great Mouse detective is a very loving and family friendly film and does an excellent job of keeping the spirit of Sherlock Holmes while translating the characters to the world of animated mice. Olivia Flaversham’s toymaker father is taken by Rattigan (the mouse world’s Moriarty). She meets Dr Dawson and together they go along with Sherlock Holmes in an attempt to find out what Rattigan is planning with the toymaker for his nefarious schemes.
  • For many people, this was their first Sherlock Holmes movie, and they don’t remember it being so until they revisit it later in life. It is as much a perfect film for kids as it is for Sherlock Holmes fan’s. The characters are based heavily on Rathbone’s Universal films of the 30’s but also do their canon counterparts very great justice.
  • Trailer

6. Sherlock Holmes (TV 1954) [Ronald Howard as Holmes and H Marion Crawford as Watson]

  • A VERY often underrated Sherlock Holmes TV series, but an adaptation faithful to the spirit of the original canon. There are 39 short episodes in the series, each with slightly simple and often comedic plots.
  • The friendship shown between Holmes and Watson (and often Lestrade) is the real reason to watch this series. The love and affection these men have for each other is outlined brilliantly in their bickering and teamwork and banter. However silly the plots are, the real gem of the series is the characters themselves. Definitely one to watch if you want to relax and just have deep feelings for a friendship that’s lasted since the Victorian age. All the episodes are currently available on youtube.
  • Wikipedia page with episode list and summaries 

7. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson (1979-86) [Visaly Livanov as Holmes and Vitaly Solomin as Watson]

  • Widely regarded as the best Sherlock Holmes and a definite fan-favorite, this Russian series is absolutely incredible. It’s very well done and very faithful to Sherlock Holmes and the spirit of the original series.
  • One of the few series to feature the meeting between Holmes and Watson. It’s a Russian series, so subtitles are a must unless you speak the language, but as always, it’s a series that the Holmesian will enjoy and should see as part of their background. 
  • Trailer

8. Young Sherlock Holmes (1985) [Nicholas Rowe as Holmes and Alan Cox as Watson]

  • Teenage Sherlock Holmes and John Watson meet at a boarding school and are thrust into a mystery when a teacher is murdered, his last words breathed to Holmes “Eh-tar”, leading them to a secret group right under their feet.
  • For fans of boarding school/college aus, this is the perfect movie. Watson’s slightly out of character, and Sherlock has a love interest, but the casting and the writing are both spectacular. The soundtrack rings of adventure and echoes that same feeling from the original stories. It’s an interesting look at what may have happened if Holmes and Watson had gone to school together. (to this day remains my favorite Sherlock Holmes movie)
  • Trailer

9. The Seven Percent Solution (1976) [Nicol Williamson as Holmes and Robert Duvall as Watson]

  • The film takes on another explanation for Holmes’ three-year absence and the Moriarty problem, as well as delving deep into Holmes (here) drug addiction and offering a glimpse into what could have been the detective’s childhood. Based on the book by Nicholas Meyer.
  • Although not one of my favorite Sherlock Holmes films (not by a mile), it’s a very interesting take on the detective, and a very Freudian look at him (literally). The book and film are often very widely known among the Holmesian community and the film is definitely a classic worth seeing on anyone’s Sherlock Holmes journey.
  • Trailer

10. Sherlock Holmes: Baker Street 221b (TV 2013) [Igor Petrenko as Holmes and Andrei Panin as Watson]

  • Another fun Holmes series from Russia, this time very modernly done. It’s a new and different take on Holmes and Watson and their friendship, but still very respectful to the spirit of the characters, the friendship and the original stories. The two meet by accident at the scene of a murder, and from there, the story begins.
  • As far as I’m aware, there were very mixed feelings about this series, but I think it’s an amazing piece of work and a worthy addition to the Holmes Legend. Unfortunately, the actor who played Watson died, so it’s unknown if we will be seeing any more of this series. Watson is very much a fighter and a tough guy whereas Sherlock is very much more brains then brawn. (seriously good series)
  • Trailer

11. Sherlock Hound~Meitantei Holmes (1984-85) Japanese Animated cartoon; English dubbed.

  • Another series aimed more for children, but one that resonates well with Holmes fans. It shows deep affection for the original characters while making everyone animated dogs. Sherlock Hound is kind and smart; Dr Watson is loyal if somewhat clumsy. And Moriarty is nefariously evil for a children’s series, somehow behind every crime that Hound must solve. The beautiful Mrs Hudson often plays large parts in the episodes as well.
  • A definite high recommendation from me. The cartoons are very beautifully made–Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli fame apparently was in on the early production stages.

12. A Game of Shadows (2011) [Robert Downey Jr as Holmes and Jude Law as Watson]

  • Another film with mixed reviews from the Holmesian community, this is the second of (so far) two films directed by Guy Ritchie. It can be seen as a sequel to the first or on it’s own. Holmes is preparing to face his arch nemesis Moriarty, whose plans involve him having a very big stake in the first world war. It is up to Holmes to figure out Moriarty’s game and stop him. Much more action based then mystery based, which isn’t always the best for a Holmes film, but it works well here. Also of note is Holmes’ and Watson’s FANTASTICALLY played relationship/friendship, now challenged by Watson’s wife, Mary.
  • Very much in the same vein as the first film, but for me, this movie is much more in the spirit of the original stories, with much more action and violence, of course. Downey Jr may not be the perfect Holmes, but he’s a very funny and adept one, adding new quirks and mannerisms to the Holmes arsenal. Jude Law is a fantastic Watson, and for Moriarty and Moran fans, this is probably the perfect film. Very high up on my favorite Holmes adaptation list and definitely worth the watch–if not for the Holmes aspect, then simply for the pure fun and excitement of the movie.

I don't care if their white as fuck the emison babies are the most precious angels that have ever existed and their mothers are the best parents in the universe and they are the sweetest and most loving family in the history of the entire world....

i’m a proud grandmother (not proud of the casting crew) but i love the dilaurentis-fields family with my entire being

honestly though I feel like Mortal Kombat: Conquest is this vague urban myth surrounding the franchise that nobody talks about, acknowledges it existed, and tries to forget about it. Which I don’t blame, because, boy did it have issues.

I do think it has excellent casting choice if you just pretend Sub-Zero and Scorpion were not there, I mean it gave us, in my opinion the best incarnate of Raiden, Quan Chi whose voice is so off and wrong that it actually becomes right for the character, and, prepare your Aww, because bear witness to the cutest Kung Lao you’ll ever see. Also the fact that Lao is the protagonist is a bonus too.

Look at him. He’s like a puppy.
