    I was tagged by the absolutely amazing agnesanutter. She mentioned that I should allow myself up to 20 selfies. I kept it under the max a bit but here we go.

    Selfies involved are from the day I got married, the day I went to see Martin Freeman in Richard III, the day I went to see Martin Freeman at Paley, the day after I tried to get tickets to see Martin Freeman at SNL, and other days when I just fantasized about Martin Freeman.

    Until today I didn’t realize how often in 2014 I kept the blonde hair. Next year I’ll have to think about changing it up more.

    Most people I follow are camera shy so I won’t tag here. If you find your name in the tags and want to do it then cool.

    ROLE MODEL

    I can’t be your role model when you’re my role model.

    I need to learn to love parentlock more.

    Also to learn to love divergence from canon.

    hahahahahahahahaahhahahaha (that’s very diplomatic of you)

    Ha. I actually wasn’t talking about that thing (don’t wanna spoil anyone). I was talking about the confirmation that the baby is actually going to happen. Oh man. Carly Simon is rewriting her song right now. “You prolly think this post is about yoooooou”

    "The child" could still be David’s or some other such plot "twist" that "no one" sees coming…

    Could be. Prolly isn’t. The baby sounds like it’s Watson’s. Which is maddening in a way. But hey this is their fanfic. Who am I to begrudge a fic writer their vision?

    It blows my mind when I read posts by 24-year-old trans girls who are worried that it’s “too late” to transition, or that hormones “won’t make any difference.”

    I started HRT at 37. I’m 39 now. I used to look more or less like a unkempt hobo. Now I’m a cute girl with a body more voluptuous and womanly than I ever could have imagined.

    Know hope.

    do you have those friends on tumblr 

    that you pretty much never talk to 

    but you follow them and they follow you 

    and whenever you see them on your dash 

    it just makes you smile and you’re so happy they’re there 

    and yet you’ve still barely spoken to one another 

    because i have a few of those 

    and i love you to bits okay 

    I feel the same

    Trope of the Week: Only Gay for You:

    paigereiring:

    Since the dawn of time, this character has been strictly heterosexual until one day he meets the man that will change everything. While he’s happily in love with his new partner, he makes a point of saying that this is the only man he’s ever liked and every single other person…

    No. You can’t say this. It’s like no stop erasing biracial people because a person wants to identify as only black. Very poor analogy but it is what it is. Which is also what some characters are. Sometimes they are what they are. You can’t define them if you’re not the writer. Hell as a writer sometimes I can’t define them because the character is often revealed to me fully formed and they are who they are. Soooo no. If my character is bisexual or pan or het or whatever then they will be that. If they have only found attraction to one person from a particular gender then the reality is they are that and the flow of dialogue will ring true to that.

    Damn, I just realised that’s probably what you meant and just got up to delete and it was toooo late. Hahah. Yep. Yes. yes she is.

    PS Happy Birthday btw :p

    Oh no worries. We’ll pretend it never happened. Anyhoo oops I meant to change that on livejounal. It’s actually not my Birthday but I put in that date randomly and oopsie. But I’ll save that birthday message from you until my actual birth date comes round and I’ll re-read it. So you’re solid for a year still.

    Also did you hear but apparently they’re doing an actual Sherlock play on Broadway. It was just announced. 

    I’m all deflated. Pffffffffft.

    I have shimmery booze! It’s a Moscato Vodka blend. Fucking amazing. I bought it for my birthday & decided to Crack into it to see if I liked it. And I need more!

    Where did you find this?!

    Walmart! It was $20. I’d definitely recommend picking up a semi sweet white wine to mix it with or sprite. It’s pretty sweet & strong alone. But very fruity and delicious.

    OMGS I saw this today and I really want to try it. I saw it for $19 at bevmo! Now I can’t wait for the 21st to try it!!

    Ehh it tasted horrible to me but it was so prettttty.

    Okay, okay, I’m going to tell you what Hermione sees in Ron.

    A trio is a balancing act, right? They’re equalizers of each other. Harry’s like the action, Hermione’s the brains, Ron’s the heart. Hermione has been assassinated in these movies, and I mean that genuinely—by giving her every single positive character trait that Ron has, they have assassinated her character in the movies. She’s been harmed by being made to be less human, because everything good Ron has, she’s been given.

    So, for instance: “If you want to kill Harry, you’re going to have to kill me too”—RON, leg is broken, he’s in pain, gets up and stands in front of Harry and says this. Who gets that line in the movie? Hermione.

    “Fear of a name increases the fear of the thing itself.” Hermione doesn’t say Voldemort’s name until well into the books—that’s Dumbledore’s line. When does Hermione say it in the movies? Beginning of Movie 2.

    When the Devil’s Snare is curling itself around everybody, Hermione panics, and Ron is the one who keeps his head and says “Are you a witch or not?” In the movie, everybody else panics and Hermione keeps her head and does the biggest, brightest flare of sunlight spell there ever was.

    So, Hermione—all her flaws were shaved away in the films. And that sounds like you’re making a kick-ass, amazing character, and what you’re doing is dehumanizing her. And it pisses me off. It really does.

    In the books, they balance each other out, because where Hermione gets frazzled and maybe her rationality overtakes some of her instinct, Ron has that to back it up; Ron has a kind of emotional grounding that can keep Hermione’s hyper-rationalness in check. Sometimes Hermione’s super-logical nature grates Harry and bothers him, and isn’t the thing he needs even if it’s the right thing, like when she says “You have a saving people thing.” That is the thing that Harry needed to hear, she’s a hundred percent right, but the way she does it is wrong. That’s the classic “she’s super logical, she’s super brilliant, but she doesn’t know how to handle people emotionally,” at least Harry.

    So in the books they are this balanced group, and in the movies, in the movies—hell, not even Harry is good enough for Hermione in the movies. No one’s good enough for Hermione in the movies—God isn’t good enough for Hermione in the movies! Hermione is everybody’s everything in the movies.

    Harry’s idea to jump on the dragon in the books, who gets it in the movies? Hermione, who hates to fly. Hermione, who overcomes her withering fear of flying to take over Harry’s big idea to get out of the—like, why does Hermione get all these moments?

    [John: Because we need to market the movie to girls.]

    I think girls like the books, period. And like the Hermione in the books, and like the Hermione in the books just fine before Hollywood made her idealized and perfect. And if they would have trusted that, they would have been just fine.

    Would the movies have been bad if she was as awesome as she was in the books, and as human as she was in the books? Would the movies get worse?

    She IS a strong girl character. This is the thing that pisses me off. They are equating “strong” with superhuman. To me, the Hermione in the book is twelve times stronger than the completely unreachable ideal of Hermione in the movies. Give me the Hermione in the book who’s human and has flaws any single day of the week.

    Here’s a classic example: When Snape in the first book yells at Hermione for being an insufferable know-it-all, do you want to know what Ron says in the book? “Well, you’re asking the questions, and she has to answer. Why ask if you don’t want to be told?” What does he say in the movie? “He’s got a point, you know.” Ron? Would never do that. Would NEVER do that, even before he liked Hermione. Ron would never do that.
