trebuchettully:

I JUST HAD ANOTHER FUN IDEA

send me two fandoms, and I will recast one with the cast of the other. 

eg. If you send me the GoT and In The Flesh, I will tell you who from the GoT cast I would have as Kieren, Amy, Jem, etc. (or vice versa)

you can specify which way round you want this to go, or just send me the two fandoms and I will pick one (or both) depending on how I feel

the coolest part of harry potter to me is that the wizarding world is a really neat example of how innovation is born from necessity, and how a lack of necessity will ultimately stunt a society by hundreds of years of advances

tyba1t said: how would hamlet take to being snowed in

shakespeareshoplifting:

1) is he at home w/ claudius and gertrude? terribly. panicky, trapped, Not Happy, very grouchy and snappy. 0/10 unhappy hamlet

2) is horatio there tho? cuddles by the fireplace. extreme philosophy discussions. watching the snow thru the windows. breathing on the glass and drawing dicks on them. 10/10 happy hamlet

I don’t believe in love at first sight, but I do know who’s gonna be my favorite character from like, two seconds of screen time.

"why be straight and cis when u can be queer and tr-"

hi lets not treat lgbtq+ identities like fashion trends

#IF UR STRAIGHT AND CIS THATS FINE??? #LIKE I GET HOW ITS ANNOYING TO PPL #BUT DONT START THIS TREND OF SLAPPING ON IDENTITES FOR THE SAKE OF IT

thats actually how a lot of ppl find out theyre not cis or straight fun fact for u. lets not shut down people who try to experiment with labels and identities because that basically makes it impossible for a lot of people to find out a lot of things about themselves because of internalized cissexism or homo or bi or transphobia or anything else like it. someone could try out different gender identities and decide that no they are actually cis and that is fine. same goes for sexuality.

this trend of treating identities like special medals you only receive if youve ALWAYS felt youre trans or non binary or whatever is ridiculous. i didnt dare identify as bisexual for a very long time even tho ive known i am since i was 12, because i was afraid im “not bisexual enough” or that i dont have the right to be in the special club and that i needed someone else’s approval of my queerness. this is what this mentality does it just gatekeeps it doesnt help our comunity at all honestly.

okay hi this is a psa for those of you on tumblr who want to start following UK news and stuff

(whether because you’ve heard about the situation with Scotland and want to get more informed or just because of any other reason)

because I’ve seen at least ten posts today to the tune of “THIS IS HAPPENING AND THE BBC IS NOT SAYING ANYTHING”

so!! i would like to be helpful and inform you that the BBC is not actually that great of a news source if you want to actually stay abreast of what is actually going on in the uk

but luckily help is at hand

better news sources to use would be places like The Independent, The Guardian, The Journal (this one is specifically for news from the North East but if you want another perspective on the Scotland situation in particular I would urge you to add this to your readings as what happens with Scotland will DIRECTLY affect this region as well),  The Scotsman and The Herald for Scottish news

in fact here is a list of UK newspapers - most of the national-level ones and some of the regional-level ones are online so they can be read in other countries as well (and the websites are useful bc they have ~archives~ which are always handy)

(I would advise you to stay clear of the Daily Mail/Daily Mirror/The Sun though or at least to corroborate the stories they post with another newspaper first, they’re kind of like our Fox News)

I hope that this is helpful! Please feel free to reblog this and get the word out to people who wanna follow UK news stuff but aren’t sure where to start :|b

PLEASE SPREAD THIS AROUND

Guys, if you’re in Glasgow City Centre, now’s the time to leave. EDL/SDL have a rally planned for this evening. They’re already showing up. Please let people know.

Stay away from George Square if you can.

Stay safe.

Following on from our post last night, Scotland still needs your help. This is uncalled for and horrendous.

Loki: I played my part. For ten long Asgardian years I played my part.And I was never to get the throne,the one I was to take by birth nor the one of Asgard. Pathetic humans like you have no idea.
