An incurable reader and slack-ass writer working on finding my way back to the things I love. Proud owner of an inappropriate sense of humour, casual geekhood, and a wealth of random usually pointless trivia making any pub quiz night a riot and a half.

There will be whatever I'm currently watching, Steampunk, girls, books, gorgeous far off places, and whatever has taken my fancy reblogged. Usually with commentary.

And be prepared for a LOT of Nikki & Nora as this is definitely an N&N appreciation blog. Additionally heaps of Rookie Blue, Person of Interest, Marvel-verse, and god knows what the hell else. With the re-release and new anime coming out, there may be an explosion of BSSM eventually...

Links on the side!

I'm sad now. Why they gotta do that to Gail? She's not there yet. It's not time yet. Damnit. Why didn't they show her growing on screen. WHy...I'm sad. Like seriously sad on behalf of a messy character. She deserved so much better writing.

I hope you don’t mind I’m answering this publicly.  If you don’t want me to, tell me and I’ll change it.

"One of the most interesting things about Elizabeth Turner was her Kiss of Death. Throughout the trilogy, all of the men she locked lips with has died - including Sao Feng in At World’s End, and (if you want to be petty about it) her father, Weatherby Swann. Usually they would die moments after kissing her for the first time. This excludes Will Turner who has kissed her several times before and beat the odds every time. However, even he succumbed to her kiss and died as well minutes after the two were hastily married by Barbossa.

This is most likely a just coincidence and not something that was intentional, but years later it’s still fun to point out to friends and watch a dawn of realization hit their face when they realize that Pirate Queen Elizabeth may have also been the Grim Reaper.

Or maybe a siren, since this is a tale about the sea.

After knowing just how thoroughly the wrote Callisto, I think it’s a safe bet that this was intentional.  Women in this verse are literal forces of nature.

And I think that’s kind of wonderful.

Samantha Groves (Root's) Pre-2011 Timeline

isagrimorie:

For fic purposes I’m trying to make sense of Root’s Timeline pre-2011.

1979 - Birth (according to PoI Wikia)

1991 - April 15, Hanna Frey is reported missing. Sam tells Barbra, the Librarian. Sam Groves uses ‘Root’ as a handle for the first time.

1993 - Root opens a bank account under Hanna…

Did you know: Chris Evans gets panic attacks. Yes, he does. This is one reason why he’s very private and didn’t really do any meet-and-greets on the Avengers’ sets.

It amazes and inspired me that a man who does what he does can do it, even with an anxiety disorder. You go, Chris.

This is why I get so upset when I hear negative comments about Chris and how he doesn’t seem as out-going as the rest of the Avengers cast. I remember hearing people complain about how he’s ‘rude’ and the like and it’s sad, because I highly doubt he intends to come off that way, he’s just more reserved than the others.

I remember hearing once that he actually went to seek psychiatric help before accepting the role of Captain America because of how anxious he felt regarding it. As well as the fact that he already played another Marvel superhero and he was concerned how comic fans would react to his playing another hero in that universe.

Just because someone’s in the entertainment industry doesn’t mean they’re going to be incredibly outgoing off camera just as much as they appear to be on camera. Some people just really enjoy acting; they’re not the characters they portray nor are they like their costars nor are they going to be incredibly outgoing because of their choice of career.

Now I’m really starting to root for this guy. Because, well. I kind of get the point more accurately than I wish I did.

@Global_TV: Marlo’s back in the #RookieBlue season finale, Wed 9 et/pt! On a scale of 1 to 10, how awkward will it be? http://t.co/D6XhUNabVo

So, Marlo spent her entire time off screen upping her hair game

Honestly? I am so fucking glad to see her again, I just hope to all fuck she’s not going to be simply a pawn of drama for the Sam and Andy game.  In fact, my ideal world -which will never happen because: drama- she totally ignores their bullshit while they fall over each other and she just Gets Shit Done and displays (again!) how utterly amazing a cop she is. Obviously she will be a little more careful and steady, mindful of what her legacy at 15 has become.And I think I’d kind of like to see the smack down she lays on someone’s ass the first time try question her instinct and absolute confidence on something about the case. Because of course they’re going to remember Ford, and she will never forget that either; they never should. However she’s done what most of them haven’t: she’s learnt from her mistake.  And now she has an amazing team around her, a team who know, care, look out for, and work WITH her.  (And maybe she tried to steal Gail because she’s seeing the same rift there.)Obviously, nothing of this will happen. But I can think about it and maybe scribble about it.  (Because Luke is also one of Marlo’s biggest supporters except he’s going to fight with her on poaching Gail because he wants her, he’s just been waiting for her to take the next detective’s rotation.)

I think I broke Harry Potter

So it’s 3AM and It’s just occurred to me that the most telling scene in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the scene following the announcement of the participants of the Triwizard tournament.

This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.

CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:

  • do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
  • go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
  • if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
  • look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
  • the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
  • works every time

"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING

WGAW Registry

quatorz:

I just heard about the whole fiasco with some 16 year old girl in Britain writing her first novel-that just happened to be the Faberry fic ‘SHAFD’.  I read an article by the author and one of the things her lawyer told her was to get the content registered.

Years ago I registered something with the actual copyright office, but I remember it being a royal pain in the ass.  Also, I’m not sure how you would copyright a story with other copyrighted characters in them (can you just say: hey this scenario is mine, etc?).

This is the registry service of the Writer’s Guild of America.  They are known mostly for registering screenplays, but you can do books-even a detailed synopsis.  Everything I’ve ever had to post online (contest, script hosting service, etc) had to be registered first.  

So if you have that epic fanfic that you want to protect (because from the sound of it, the girl that stole SHAFD is planning on stealing ‘The Knife Thrower’s Daughter’ for her second novel), this is the way to do it.  

Its not free.  Its $20.  But if you have one of those 100K+ fics, think of the time, energy and love you put into it.  Definitely worth $20 to protect it.
