Karen Gillan at the “Guardians of the Galaxy” photocall on July 25, 2014 in London, England
Fandoms: Doctor Who, Whedonverse, Avengers, Hannibal, Supernatural, Elementary, Sherlock, Welcome to Night Vale, Cabin Pressure, Orphan Black, some shows that tumblr doesn't care about enough and some shows that I'm forgetting right now but adore anyway.
I also really like books and tea.
Sometimes I try to make this more than just a fandom blog by reblogging serious things, but most of the time I fail. I'm trying, though.
"Not fond of eye contact, are you?"
Art from the book A Monster Calls written by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay.
It’s a children’s book about a boy (Conor) who starts having nightmares about a monster every night since his mother started her cancer treatment. One night when he wakes up, there is an actual monster right outside his window. The monster is a yew tree in the cemetery behind Conor’s house during day-time but the monster we see at night. I wont go into more detail about the story because it’s really worth reading. You might want to have some tissues and ice-cream ready though.
It was inspired by Siobhan Dowd, who passed away due to cancer and could not write this book herself
Katniss Everdeen: Different Faces.
//I just really love what John Finnemore did with the character of Carolyn Knapp-Shappey.
Like, sod off, she’s not just any little old woman, MJN revolves around her and this is her story, even if you probably don’t realise it.
Yes, she’s old, but she’s never going to be anyone’s loving, nurturing Grandma or mother. She can be all of those things, but it’s not the point of her.
Yes, she’s old, sod it all, I’m going to give her a love interest despite her age, and it’s one of the most authentic, heartwarming relationships in the series, without making Carolyn anything she hasn’t been before she met Herc.
Yes, she’s a businesswoman, but no, she’s not perfect at it.
Yes, she’s tough, but she depends on others, because she’s only human.
Yes, she cares, but she can see the difference between things that are important and things that aren’t.
No, she’s neither evil nor grandmotherly, despite being old.
Yes, she’s a single mother who lives with her thirty-year old son, and no, she doesn’t bloody need anyone to help her handle Arthur.
Yes, she’s the Alpha Dog, and yes, she calls male pilots out on their sexism, because whyever not?
She’s cold, but sweet, tough, but weak, proud, but childish, clever, but doesn’t always make the right decisions, she’s an old lady, but she will kick your arse.
She was never supposed to be perfect, and that’s what makes her so wonderful.
I HAVE THE HEADCANON THAT DRAGONS THINK THAT MERMAIDS ARE SUPER COOL BECAUSE THEY LIVE IN WATER AND STUFF
omfg so my little cousin (she’s 8) loves superheroes and we were in party city and she was browsing through the boys costumes because the girls side didn’t have the ones she wanted and then an employee tells her that she’s in the wrong side so she grabs a batman mask and says in the lowest voice possible for her age, “don’t question batman”
THIS GIRL IS MY ROLE MODEL
she’s stopped everything that’s ever come up against her.
So here’s some pics of my Man in the Tan Jacket cosplay from Colossal con. Its still sort of a WIP, I need to add the flies all over the jacket still and fix some other small things.
Oh and I had speakers in the suit case so it had the flies buzzing inside it. Creeped some people out. :D
The pin on my lapel says ‘nightvale fly salesman’
this is so disturbing i fucking love it
this is wonderfully creepy holy shit <3
