"I love [that] the fans use the show as a canvas onto which they paint the stories that mean the most to them"

Misha Collins at the TVG Fan Favourites panel [x] (via rorycas)

Between this and his disparaging comments about how his show writes the ladies, sometimes I just suspect Mischa utterly gets it.

Ginny Weasley is transgender.

OMG. Molly wanted a daughter so, so badly. Can you just imagine her breaking out in happy tears when Gin asks to start wearing dresses and be called a girl? 

I really like thinking about this and everything that it is/could be Harry Potter

Yep, this is my happy place.

Infographic: 7 Reasons This Is An Excellent Resume For Someone With No Experience

yoooo what i need by tomorrow

AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

SUPER IMPORTANT

Hm—this a great idea, but I don’t know if I agree with all of it? Here are some reasons why/cautions:
If you’ve been to college, a college professor might make for a good reference. (Not that that needs to be included on the resume—their contact info could go on a separate sheet, or in the body of the email you send where you’ll attach your resume if you email it in.) Or, if you didn’t go to college, a volunteer supervisor, or a leader of another group you partake in.
I’d only include social media skills if it’s at least a little relevant to your job. For a public relations/advertising intern, it’s great! For everyone else? Ummm, depends.
References to high school are great if you’re 4-6 years away from high school. Any later than that, and I’d imagine you’d be better off with listing current volunteer experiences, teams or groups you’re part of, special skills, classes you’ve taken, that sort-of thing.
On the subject of the job hunt (which, if anyone here is in the midst of it, best of luck!) if you’ve been in between jobs for a while and need help figuring out what to do as you hunt, um, I was in that situation previously and this blog post was inspirational and helpful: http://captainawkward.com/2011/09/12/reader-question-110-how-do-i-claw-my-way-out-of-this-depressing-living-situation/
It has some great advice about ways to build your skills between employment.
Anyway, hope some of this helped and that it wasn’t too frustrating or upsetting! I also have a few more tips up my sleeve, if they’d be useful just message me and I’ll pull together a post!

"You may marry him, murder him, or do anything you like to him."

  • Doyle was very uncomfortable with the idea of giving Holmes a female love interest. But he also just really wanted to not write the play Sherlock Holmes, and handed the reins over to William Gillette. This quote was in response to Gillette’s request to marry Holmes off to a woman. It was basically Doyle’s way of saying “Bugger it, I’m done. Do what you want.”
  • In his play The Speckled Band, Doyle wrote Billy the pageboy as all but Holmes’ adopted son. He also put him in a dress and had him pretend to be Holmes’ daughter.
  • Doyle wrote both Holmes and Watson as having their names attached to a great many confirmed bachelors, with both men regularly commenting on how attractive certain men were- Holmes had a penchant for muscular, tan skinned men with moustaches, while Watson generally preferred lean men with pale eyes.

Stop using Doyle as your defense against a queer reading of the Canon, and the characters of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson. Even if his intent wasn’t to make them queer, he flat out wouldn’t care if that is what we see them as. If he were to rise from the grave tomorrow and read our interpretations, he would be less appalled at the thought of Watson eating Holmes’ ass, than he would be at the fact that after a hundred years, Holmes is still popular.

Winner will be chosen from all entries received by 11:59 pm CDT (UTC-05) on September 1st , 2014. If any of the winners fail to respond within a week of the drawing, I will draw a new winner. Any questions, feel free to drop a note in the ask :)

Good luck, and if you don’t want to take your chances with the giveaway, I’m offering a tumblr special coupon code for 10% off your total purchase at Loosed Leaf! (TUMBLR14) This coupon is valid until October 1! 

more designs coming out this week and next—they’ll all be eligible for this giveaway as will custom orders!

pronunciation | "wa-dA-‘mE-kumpronunciation | "wa-dA-‘mE-kum

Here are a list of books followers identified as “vade mecum” books. Please feel free to reblog and share and add your own book to the list! I’d love to see this thing expand even more.

  1. cmstarling - Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris —- “It’s not always my favorite book, but I always hate putting it away.”
  2. up1701steps - Tris’s Book by Tamora Pierce —-“I refuse to live anywhere for more than a few weeks without my copy. It was the first book that made me want to be a writer, so I’m sentimental about it.”
  3. no-literally - The Best Poems Ever edited by Edric S. Mesmer
    —- “It has the most pretentious title ever but this super-thin collection of poetry always reminds me that I do really, secretly, kind-of love poetry.”
  4. thebaddragon - Loki by Mike Vasich —- “One book I am really in love with…I like the baddies too much.”
  5. shakespeareandco - Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie —- “A book I would carry EVERYWHERE if I could.”
  6. dirtychai103 - My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George —-“I read a passage from it on a standardized test in 4th grade, went home and immediately got my Mom to buy it for me. I’ve reread it countless times. The idea of just running away to the Catskills and living in a tree. Yes yes forever.”
  7. lyriclorelei - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen; Lord of the Rings Series by J. R. R. Tolkien; Leviathan Series by Scott Westerfeld; Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery; Real Men Don’t Rehearse by Justin LockeSum by David Eagleman  —- “Too many?” (further explanation also available!)
  8. atalethatcantbetoldDark Jewels ‘verse by Anne Bishop —- “I reread them constantly. Such a fascinating world and so easy to get totally immersed in the story and the characters.”
  9. homeschoolpromqueen- Lirael by Garth Nix —- “It’s a fantasy novel about a (female) studious librarian outsider who has to battle zombies and necromancers and crazy monsters :)”
  10. onehundredandonethings - Squire by Tamora Pierce —- “I don’t know if it’s necessarily my favorite book, but I know I can’t go much more than a year without reading [it].”

#bringing this back in case anyone discovered a vade mecum over the summer!

YES, that is brilliant! Did anyone discover a new favorite book this summer? (thus far, I’ve fallen in love with The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, mostly, but also The Fault In Our Stars, Middlesex and Fic: Why Fanfiction is Taking Over The World…it’s been a a pretty damn great summer for reading!) Let me (and up1701steps, who brought it back!) know!

The Princess Bride vs Sherlock - Part 1 (Part 2)

I don’t talk about it very much on my tumblr (or I try not to? Because I think once I start babbling about tjlc, I really won’t stop!) but I truly adore the people making the tjlc happen. They brighten my day on the regular.
