Doctor Who––Series 5, Episode 10: “Vincent and the Doctor”
“Between you and me, in a hundred words, where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?” “Well… um… big question. But, to me, Van Gogh is the finest painter of them all. Certainly, the most popular, great painter of all time. The most beloved. His command of colour the most magnificent. He transformed the pain of his tormented life into ecstatic beauty. Pain is easy to portray, but to use your passion and pain to portray the ecstasy and joy and magnificence of our world, no one had ever done it before. Perhaps no one ever will again. To my mind, that strange, wild man who roamed the fields of Provence was not only the world’s greatest artist, but also one of the greatest men who ever lived.”

When Mary was first introduced into the show, we very graciously welcomed her into our hearts, trusting that the writers had some kind of plan. We knew that they were facing the difficult task of staying true to canon while further developing the relationship arc between John and Sherlock. Not an easy feat, but we had faith: Eventually, we would see Mary’s true colours, John would return to Baker Street - all would be well.
But, alas, it did not happen. And the fandom was flabbergasted. What were Mofftiss playing at? However, there are actually two really good reasons for doing what they did:
One, you can’t just turn one of the very few original female characters into something negative. I mean you can, but I really don’t think Mofftiss wanted to. Two, there was a much, much more beautiful route. And Mofftiss took it.
Because what do you do, when you can’t make a character lovable due to the risk of heteronormativity, and you can’t make her unlovable due to risk of misogyny? The answer is: You make her awesome. You make her the best, most brilliant hero ever. And then you let her make a really strong case in point: No one can compete with Sherlock Holmes.
“The gear represents our unity. And it’s very important because it was hard to obtain. It’s because of its importance that it is considered to be the heart of the engineering student’s heart. To the point where they say the gear is within the heart…the heart is within the gear. If we give our gear to someone, that means we’re giving them our heart.”
Really high expectations about men
Making me cry and laught in less than 10 pages apart
An obssesion that will haunt me forever
Make me try strawberry tarts
Make me HATE and then TOTALLY LOVE a character (Celeste)
Want to wear dreeses and tiaras for fun
Think if I could win a selection
Want to live in a castle
Wanting to tug my ear when I have a boyfriend
Wishing to have friends like Celeste and Marlee
Okay. But I'd love to have a tv show with Melissa McBride, Gillian Anderson, Lauren Graham, Paige Turco, and Viola Davis being the best of friends and showing the world that fifty is fabulous and damn sexy.
Oh, and if you could work in a little Henry Ian Cusick and Norman Reedus in there, I wouldn’t complain. Cusick ‘cause, well, he somehow looks adorable and yummy at the same time. And Reedus 'cause it might be the only hope the world has of seeing that sparkling McReedus chemistry truly set on fire.
Bonus points for Josh Holloway because dear Lord. Need I remind anybody of James Sawyer Ford?
Everyman funny man Nathan Fillion could be fun, too.
Also…it’d be mighty cool with me if Julianne Moore could be play Gillian Anderson’s big sister. Just a thought.

So…I know I’m late for Writer Appreciation Day (I swear I had a good reason), but I’m still doing the fic rec like a said in order to appreciate some of these amazing writers. These are some of all-time favorites or recent reads that I loved for each Jungkook ship including Jungkook/Everyone. Please enjoy and happy reading! P.S. All smut I rec is bottom jungkook because I am trash.
it makes me really happy that you like my Fancy Outfit designs, but if you’ve ever cast a glance at kaoru mori’s a bride’s story, you’ll see that i really do just add some half-random fancy lookin squiggles and i’m only tricking you into thinking it’s detailed and complex
Side note: Lisa Onions, the darling author of the AU series which makes me cry, the smol!Shiro fic which ALSO makes me cry, and Throne which is just so badass I am in a constant state of awe, needs a few more followers to hit her next milestone.
The next milestone means MORE STUFF. So go follow her. Immediately. GO DO THE THING
I’m watching Anne with an E on Netflix and… Omg it’s so good. All my life, I’ve only ever seen Anne painted as a silly little girl who talked too much, who had a fiery temper, with no self control because haha shes a girl. But this series…
I’ve only seen 17 minutes and already I could tell Anne talks to distract herself. The more she imagines and talks, the less she has to remember. The last “family” she was with abused her. She was in charge of keeping eight children alive while the parents yelled and hit her if she did anything wrong.
She calls herself ugly because she’s skinny and has red hair. She believes it because who has ever told her otherwise?
