I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
fangirl challenge: 5/5 television shows
Human beings are simple, predictable clichés. Broken hearts, betrayal, it’s all been done a billion times before. The problem is, every time still hurts like the first. And if you’re lucky enough to recover, you can be sure that just as you finish filling in all the cracks in your life, the next one is starting to open.
Let’s play a game.
Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.
you, also, what, when, why, how, look, because, never
he’s trying to say when he’s your bf and your friends finally meet him they will be so overwhelmed by his handsome face that they will immediately ask if he has a brother who shares some of his genetically determined features. His answer: “no…”That makes sense. Why didn’t he phrase it like that? Maybe my brain is just fried.
I got a message on Match.com today that reads:
"The bad news is that when your friends ask, the answer is "No, I’m sorry… I don’t have a brother." :p
Brief interlude: I don’t know what this is referring to? There’s nothing about my brother on my profile? Is he saying us together would look like siblings? Because we totally wouldn’t….
The good news is that I have a potentially life-changing quiz for you…
Would you rather be a dolphin, an eagle or a supermodel for a day?
If you had to choose one, would you rather have beer-flavored wine, or wine-flavored beer?
Would you prefer to be sweating on a 100 degree beach in Brazil, or freezing on a ski slope in the Alps?
I’ll tell you what your answers mean when you write me back… You’ll totally laugh.
This guy is 12 years older than I am. I—I don’t know??
Bryan Fuller on female characters in season 3:
There’s criticism as well as there are accolades. If you’re opening yourself up you have to be open to both of them. It’s interesting to see reactions to certain female characters in the second season. And so going into the third season it’s like, “OK, Bedelia’s gotta be front and centre, we’ve gotta bring Murasaki in and she’s going to be a powerhouse with a lot to do.” And our agenda really was how do we make these characters drive their own stories as opposed to…
You know, Alana Bloom is not going to be a caregiver. We saw that in the first season and we saw her as a romantic foil… even though Caroline was not complaining about the scenes she had with Mads partially clothed! But I felt like going into this third season our first discussion in the writer’s room was; “We have to make Alana Bloom the most interesting character on the show.” Because she hasn’t been up until this point, and she’s served her role in the story between Hannibal and Will Graham.
Now going into season 3, we have the opportunity to change everybody as they’ve gone through this experience and take advantage of that. And it’s exciting because I’m excited to see what Caroline does, I’m excited to see what Gillian does, we’re bringing Gina Torres back, I can’t wait to find out who we cast for Murasaki. [x]
My sister asked if the events of “The Labyrinth” are meant to be Sarah dreaming, or are they real? Although my primary reaction was that she shouldn’t put that much thought into any children’s movie (or any instance of David Bowie in tight pants), I’d like to take this opportunity to put so much thought into this children’s movie, that it’ll blow your mind.
So why is David Bowie kidnapping a child from an underage Jennifer Connelley?
In a time long long ago a sorcerer named Jareth fell in love with a girl named Sarah. Sarah’s father and step-mother would not let her marry Jareth because they wanted her to keep her, as a servant, to care for their other child. In a fit of rage Jareth kidnapped this other child and spirited it away to the fairy world. In this new world Jareth built a palace for his Sarah. He turned the spoiled child into a goblin, and kept it to be a servant.
Many stories of the fairy world tell us that time moves differently there than in our world (Rip Van Winkle for one). In the time it took for Jareth to build his kingdom, which he may have thought was little more than a few years, Sarah grew old and died.
Overcome by grief and addled by a lifetime spent in a strange world filled with monsters, Jareth goes mad. He refuses to believe that he has lost his love. He searches the mortal world from his castle, looking for her.
Sarah is Hebrew name. So, it is common, and has been in use for thousands and thousands of years. It does not take long (for him) to find a dark haired girl named Sarah, who has a younger sibling, and who feels that she is treated unfairly by her step mother. In a fit of rage he kidnaps this other child and spirits it away to the fairy world. Perhaps this new Sarah dies in the quest to find the child, perhaps she wins her sibling back and flees.
Jareth searches the mortal world from his from his castle, looking for her. It does not take long to find a dark haired girl named Sarah…
This is how Jareth becomes the goblin king. Every goblin in the goblin city is a child Jareth has stolen, who was not recovered by a Sarah. (he told the current Sarah that Toby would become a goblin if she did not find him in time)
This is why he builds the maze. The magic bog, the junk yard of useless treasures, all tricks to slow Sarah down. Because if he can only have his Sarah for the time it takes for her to regain the stolen child, he will make it take as long as possible, keep her as long as possible.
This is why there exists in our world a book containing the story. Because it has happened before. So many times. At some point some lucky Sarah must have returned to our world to tell the story.
This is why when the most recent Sarah first meets Hoggle at the start of the labyrinth, and introduces herself; “I’m Sarah”, Hoggle responds “That’s what I figured.”
Because of course she’s Sarah.
They were all Sarah.
