Writer, seamstress and artist. This blog is dedicated to entertaining those who enjoy good stories and laughter.

Generally I post or reblog intriguing, original or very humorous pictures, gifs and thoughts regarding the following fandoms:

X-Men, Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, Jane Austen, Firefly, Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, etc.

I try to stay away from controversial subjects, although I will reblog occasional posts relating to the treatment of women, or the Pro-Life movement, if it presents information in a new and thought-provoking way.

As a writer and seamstress, I'll also include posts related to these areas of creativity.

Supervillainy is probably a pretty hard habit to break.

This just fills me with the giggles.

it’s not your job to entertain him by sending him nudes

it’s not your job to satisfy him sexually because he’s horny

you are not required to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or that you don’t want to do

don’t be scared of “losing him”

he most likely wasn’t anything worth keeping

Girls need to be taught this from such an early age.

a boner is not a medical condition. you are under no obligation to do anything.

Anonymous sent: So I'm watching the 2005 movie right now and was thinking about the bit in the beginning when Elizabeth tells Darcy that poetry kills love and then says she recommends dancing to encourage affection, well then at the next ball he asks her to dance, obviously to show affection. So I'm 100% convinced that if she hadn't said that he would have written her poems and I'm DYING to know what a Darcy love poem sounds like.

Perhaps I’m a bit of a naive person, and I’m seeing things where there are none [and putting too much stock onto what is probably lackluster writing], but I believe this episode does show us that maybe, Hook isn’t meant to be with Emma or get his so-called “redemption arc” to stick.

Here’s why [and feel free to stick this part under a read more or something]:

-The date did not go well. Despite what Mary Margaret said, the look that Emma had when she finally closed the door and lean against it, was of a woman who was saying “Thank god that’s over, why the hell did I think that was a good idea”. It was of a woman tired of pretending, of defeat almost? After realizing her parents were still awake, she put on the act which led to Mary Margaret’s comment, putting the facade back up.

In fact, I had originally had my stream cut off right as they were about to kiss, and returned with Emma leaning against the door, so I had originally thought Hook had done something to her with how forlorn she looked. Goes to show how miserable she was after the whole thing.

-Hook is a liar. He’s scheming to serve his needs, and paint himself in a good light. And I hope to everything that he keeps on doing all those shitty deals so in the end Emma has a moment where she dumps his ass and calls him out on it.

-Hook is a blackmailer and self-serving. He does everything that would benefit him. Keeping his ship rather than help Ariel, siding with Cora or Tamara and Greg depending on who had the better deal  He blackmails people to do things for him, such as the deal with punching Knave, and having him keep quiet about it, and the whole back-and-forth with the dagger.

I swear I thought Rumple had returned the dagger to Belle, unless he can just summon it or something.

-Emma saying she needs her own place. Multiple times too. She wants to get away from this life where she’s expected to go out on dates, look pretty [keeping away from the dress debacle, but that could go into it as well], and just generally live as the perfect daughter. But she didn’t look happy at going on the date, she seemed apprehensive. So much that she originally didn’t even pay attention that her date had his new appendage, until Mary Margaret pointed it out. Almost like someone who pinched her nose to hold her breath until this was all over.

-No one believes Hook: Between David’s tone of surprise at “I guess he really has changed” - creating an interesting rift from the supposed established “bro” ship that is Hook and Charming - and Gold’s explanation of what the hand really did to him, I don’t think people really do expect Hook to change, a la ‘leopards never change spots’.

Also I loved that Gold said “object of your conquest” [or maybe it was affection, I’m too lazy to watch it again], and Hook didn’t really comment on that, because one thing is to tell the father of the girl he’s pining after that he means no ill will [because who wouldn’t say just that, otherwise it’s like shooting yourself in the foot], and another is with the man who really won’t take his bullshit for an answer. Hook does think of Emma as a conquest, and an object.

-Hook only responded to “Hook”. Despite the attempt to “humanize” Killy Poo, you’ll notice that the 2 [or maybe 3] times that Hook was reacting to his hand, Emma tried first to call him Killian, getting no response. The man only reacted when Emma said “Hook”.

Combine all of that and you have a woman who is desperately pretending to have some semblance of normality in her life - after wanting her NY life back [or as much normality as she can have in a town full of fairytales and 80s tech like Belle’s shoebox phone and Mary Margaret’s camera] but also keep her parents, plus giving in to her kid’s idea to ask Hook out on a date because he’s naively trying to play matchmaker with both his moms [I wonder how long it’ll take him to realize that it’ll be easier to match his mothers together rather than with the two bearded dunces - hoping that there’s something in Gold’s shop that’ll snap some sense into him].

And a pirate who is trying to cram down his pirate tendencies just so he can bed Emma. Methinks that his pirate side is much like how an addiction would work. You can try to ignore it, stop giving in to it, but eventually you’ll succumb to it and it’ll take you by force, unless you’re one of the lucky few who are stronger than their addiction - and Killian Jones is most certainly not. It’s called a pirate’s life for a reason. It’s not like a t-shirt you can suddenly change, or throw it out because it’s not your style any more.

It’s like the hand made him remember who he really is, so he felt free to once more pillage and plunder and be the pirate he really is more freely, trying to come out of the box Hook stuffed his pirate side into in order to give Emma the false sense that she was with someone trustworthy and noble.

Again, I’m probably reading too much into it, but considering that some of these things can’t be bad acting, the actors said these things and delivered them with those intonations and choice words has me hoping there is some type of redemption for the arc, then again I had expected Emma to rip Hook a new one for the whole Zelena stunt, but I can hope Emma will use that as another bullet point when she finally does dump his sorry ass.

At the very least I’m finding solace in the saying that “People are consistent with themselves” if Hook has been a pirate for more than 300 years, I find it hard to believe he thinks he can change in what a week? [Keeping track of show times and its real world storyline from ep airdates is the bane of my existence]

FTL and 1st time in Storybrooke showed him as a cunning arse who thought only of himself.

Neverland showed him trying to be all charming for Emma, but seeing all of that go up in smoke except for that one kiss which was probably a pity kiss [aka: show-runners wanting rating spikes].

Then back to Storybrooke, still nada. 1 year later going through FTL again and still lying and conniving. They started shoving his supposed redemption arc somewhere within the whole Zelena chaos, right after they killed Neal I think, with the way clear for the “rugged hero to sweep in and save the day” or whatever trashy romance novel the OUAT writers are inspiring themselves with.

I don’t know, just my 2 cents.

Some interesting points.

The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

placesbetween:

Fandom has a tendency to hive mind. I understand that is a thing and is never going away…So, I wanted to discuss a bit the current one that is super prominent in the Captain America fandom.

Right now the popular thing is to hate on Steve Rogers in The Avengers and call him…
