In fairy tales and fantasy, two types of people go in towers: princesses and wizards.
Princesses are placed there against their will or with the intention of ‘keeping them safe.’ This is very different from wizards, who seek out towers to hone their sorcery in solitude.
I would like a story where a princess is placed in an abandoned tower that used to belong to a wizard, and so she spends long years learning the craft of wizardry from the scraps left behind and becomes the most powerful magic wielder the world has seen in centuries, busts out of the tower and wreaks glorious, bloody vengeance on the fools that imprisoned her.
That would be my kind of story.
Yes. This. Now’s good. Someone get on this, okay? Please? I’ll make brownies.
I will not keep my mouth shut. A bitch knows her voice. Knows how to howl with a wolf pack in her throat. A bitch is honest. A bitch doesn’t follow the rules; demands to know who wrote them. Rules are weak. Rules are prey.
I am alpha female; I am fur on fire. I am roaring tornado combusting misogynist mountains to dust. Crushed bones and gutted patriarchy carcass. We bleed to survive, you bleed to keep up.
Bitch, my goosebumps have goosebumps! THIS is fierce! And hot damn, these women are amazing! \o/
…I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England too.
ACTUAL QUOTE FROM QUEEN ELIZABETH THE FIRST AND NOT MISOGYNIST STEVEN MOFFAT JUST A FYI U KNO [x] (via thetardis)
Can we please not be offended by a everything? It was set in the 16th century so it’s not the same as it is now and it’s a fact that men are biologically stronger than women (they naturally have more muscle mass), nothing sexist about it. And if you think just because Moffat wrote that quote he hates women, please just stop. (x)
The complaining also completely misses the context where she is making fun of men underestimating her because she is a woman.
i was just writing about sherlock and joan arriving in sleepy hollow and went to re-watch that scene where ichabod is standing in the middle of the street (for ATMOSPHERE) and:
you know, that’s a lot of people for a VILLAGE
but then i remembered about that part in Revelation (hey there sunday school):
Revelation 7:3–8 And I heard the number of the sealed, a hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel
Revelation 14:3–5 And they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.
I just love these clever not-precisely-hidden ‘easter eggs’ in a television show or a film! \o/
All of this. I’m watching the rerun in an hour, and I’ve already straight-up unfollowed three people for untagged spoilers. And will later unfollow (temporarily, maybe) negative critique, because LORD, can the Who fandom at least try to just enjoy something?
celebrities should be allowed to tweet ‘just wanna be left alone today, okay guys?’ and then they should be able to go out to the pools or shopping or just out for coffee and a movie with their friends/family without being swamped, but SOME days they should tweet ‘CATCH ME IF U CAN’ and its just like hey where the fuck is johnny depp or niall horan or brad pitt free autographs to those who find them. i think its a good idea obama sign it into law
the model for the Tol’Vir race (above) was finished quite late into development, so early builds of the beta used a placeholder model instead with roughly similar proportions, placed to make sure that artists got the scale right for the areas they were supposed to live in
Okay so, here’s the story. For the past few years some friends of mine made a habit of getting me one of those “Men of the Hawaiian Islands” calendars every time they visited Hawaii (one of them had a brother who worked there so she went often, I ended up with several of these). I hung them up at work and we’d giggle a lot at how ridiculous they were, all these oiled up sweaty hairless dudes with weird faces trying to play sexy.
Cut to a few weeks ago and suddenly two of them are like “hey we thought of an idea for you” and we ended up having a long conversation about calendars and some challenges were thrown around. And I ended up agreeing to do a naughty Sherlock calendar. But not a legit trying-to-be-sexy calendar. They all had to be glistening, look slightly uncomfortable, and have totally OOC bangin bodies.
I did my best and this is what happened. I hope you enjoy~
I came, I purchased, I will come again… but I promise not to get anything on the calender. ;D
