GUYS I SUDDENLY JUST REMEMBERED THAT PATRICK J ADAMS IS GOING TO GUEST STAR IN SEASON 2 OF ORPHAN BLACK!!!
would anyone be interested in me making a drarry fic rec list? it wouldn’t be posted for a while since i’m in the midst of rereading a ton of fics, but I’m just curious if I should make sure to compile my favorites as I go so I don’t forget about them. or do you guys prefer me just randomly linking to them when i’m in the midst of reading the fic like i’ve been doing the past few days?
If you didn’t pay attention to Varys during the Purple Wedding you seriously missed out
when i was a kid living in virginia i called swear words “cuss words” but now i call then “curse words” and i don’t know when that change happened while i was loving abroad but i forgot “cuss” was even a thing people said until my (not)boss just said it to me
wes anderson movies taught me that fucked up horrifying tragic living circumstances are no excuse not to carefully maintain a cute pastoral aesthetic at all times
1hey:Kiss Me (Cover) | The FrayKiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift your open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
Silver moon’s sparkling
So kiss Me
I heard the first line and gasped. like for real and now I’m crying
i love it when TV shows make references to other TV shows
now we just need a show that references Supernatural
You mean like
since i’ve been sharing all of my old favorite drarry fics that i’ve been re-reading, here’s the one i’m currently drowning myself in (and yes, that’s the real, legitimate, official fic blurb):
bond by anna fugazzi
yet another one of those harry and draco are forced to be together by something beyond their control and then stuff happens leading to twoo wuv stories. because every HD writer has to write at least one.
I’ve never been female. But I have been black my whole life. I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective. There are many similar social issues related to access to equal opportunity that we find in the black community, as well as the community of women in a white male dominate society…
When I look at — throughout my life — I’ve known that I wanted to do astrophysics since I was 9 years old…I got to see how the world around me reacted to my expressions of these ambitions. All I can say is, the fact that I wanted to be a scientist, an astrophysicist was hands down the path of most resistance through the forces of society.
Anytime I expressed this interest, teachers would say, ‘Oh, don’t you wanna be an athlete?’ I want to become someone that was outside of the paradigm of expectations of the people in power. Fortunately, my depth of interest of the universe was so deep and so fuel enriched that everyone of these curve balls that I was thrown, and fences built in front of me, and hills that I had to climb, I just reach for more fuel, and I just kept going.
Now, here I am, one of the most visible scientists in the land, and I wanna look behind me and say, ‘Where are the others who might have been this,’ and they’re not there! …I happened to survive and others did not simply because of forces of society that prevented it at every turn. At every turn.
…My life experience tells me that when you don’t find blacks, when you don’t find women in the sciences, I know that these forces are real, and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today.
So before we start talking about genetic differences, you gotta come up with a system where there’s equal opportunity, then we can have that conversation.
"What’s up with chicks and science?"
Are there genetic differences between men and women, explain why more men are in science.
This was beautiful
