My dad just came into my room and shouted at me in Klingon.
Am I more embarrassed that he did that or that I know he said I was a disappointment to the empire?
You should be most embarrassed that you’re a disappointment to the empire.
THIS PERSON IS SO UNDERCOOKED WE CAN INVITE THEM OVER FOR DINNER AGAIN
Shockingly rude, Mr. Ramsay.
The Mr. Pipes sightings
Today two of my best friends got engaged, I am SO happy and excited for them!! I just painted Michaela’s nails with this sweet and simple design. I wanted to compliment the ring, not draw attention away from it. Hopefully it worked! Isn’t the ring beautiful? #soexcited #happyhappylovelove
Look at the perfection!! I’m making plans to build these now. So. So. Cool. Or I could actually make it box shaped and have nail polish on each side! Found on the “doctor who and the t.a.r.d.i.s” Facebook page :)

Bryan Fuller: HOW DO I LOVE THEE? LET ME COUNT THE WAYS…
- He has a successful history with genre shows (Heroes, Pushing Daisies, Hannibal)
- He is an openly gay showrunner, but unlike Jeff Davis, he actually champions queer representation that is inclusive of lesbians and showing gay people as people (and not just objects for exploitative makeout sessions).
- He employs colorblind casting. Beverly Katz (Hannibal) is played by Korean American actress, Hettienne Park. Jack Crawford (Hannibal) is played by black actor, Laurence Fishburne. The role of Crawford in the books and previous movie adaptations have all been portrayed by white actors.
- He interacts with fans, but unlike Jeff Davis, he genuinely appreciates his fanbase and their fandom creations.
- He respects women. Not only does he acknowledge and appreciate female fans explicitly, he’s turned male characters into women (e.g. Freddie Lounds) and is careful to show parity in the number of female/male victims on Hannibal. PLUS HE REFUSES TO TELL A RAPE STORY ON HIS SHOW, PERIOD.
I’m going to chime in on this because I have a lot of strong feelings about Bryan Fuller and what a fantastic human being he is.
The points above are absolutely true and absolutely valid but I’m going to expand on a couple of them just from personal experience - To say Bryan Fuller appreciates his fans is shockingly enough an understatement. This man ADORES the people who consume his work. He will literally bend over backwards to be inclusive to people who interact with him in any way possible.
The most fascinating thing, I think, about Bryan and his fan interactions is that there is absolutely no undercurrent of contentiousness or shaming or dictating HOW anyone should enjoy his work. Bryan’s openly supportive, playful, and validating of all the shipping that goes on in the Hannibal fandom and makes no effort to use the slash fans ships or works to queer bait anyone. He acknowledges completely that slash readings of the show are valid and doesn’t mock them or attempt to profit off of them.
There’s no push-pull happening between Bryan or his fans at all on any level, it’s reciprocal in every degree.
I was dressed up as the Nightmare Stag at Comic Con and when I went up to ask my question, he immediately lit up, pulled me up to get photos, and was just so genuinely amazingly excited - I didn’t expect it at all. It literally made my entire convention experience, hands down. I’ve never, not once in the years I’ve been crafting or cosplaying, had a reception like that.
Also the just general embracing of the culture of the fandom as well - This can be such a tricky line to ride since it can easily spin off into trying to bait or tease fans maliciously - but Bryan has done nothing but use his direct line to the fandom to show appreciation of the fans. If you go to Bryan’s twitter and look through his gallery, he’s adopted the flower crown tumblr popularized as a symbol of gratitude, not a joke.
They actually - No joke, have a plastic bin that they keep on the set of Hannibal full of flower crowns to take photos with to share with fans.
Also - If you remember the shirt that was up on TeeFury months ago - this one - Bryan literally bought EVERY SINGLE PERSON IN THE CAST AND CREW this shirt. It’s their s2 crew shirt. Rather than outsourcing and designing a shirt for the crew, Bryan decided to support a fan’s work.
And this attitude trickles down to the entire cast and crew. I was lucky enough to spend a day on the set meeting with people and watching them film - We spent the majority of the day with one of the producers, who, not only was absolutely willing and excited to talk with me not only about the canon of the Thomas Harris novels, the timelines of the show, the inclusivity of certain characters, etc, but was sure to tell me that this warm, fun, high energy environment was absolutely not typical of all TV sets. It was something special. And I absolutely believe that.
And that’s why everyone should watch and support Hannibal. It’s the most lovingly crafted show about cannibalism and murder you’ll ever see in your life.
Reblogging for the love, and the last paragraph.
If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Kahn being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
Rehabilitating penguins wearing sweaters
…aren’t these stuffed penguin toys wearing sweaters? Super cute yes, but looking closely I’m pretty sure they’re toys.
What is this satiny boop? Behold the Golden Mole, native of the Namib desert. You are looking at the front end. It swims blind through the dunes at night and comes out to blunder into grasses (which it detects by vibration) and munch on ants and other tasty things it finds there.
(the article is adorable by the way)
AHAHAHA oh my god
it is the killer spleen creature of which the ancient texts warn
it has but one leg
and when it walks it makes a vile sound
with profound salutes to camwyn
Eeee! Hello, killer spleen creature!
(I will forever file the Namib golden mole under ‘killer spleen creature’ in much the same way that a drunken Australian who could not quite put their finger on the right word for the largest living deer species has forever dubbed Alces alces ‘horse dinosaur things’ for me.)
TRIBBLES ARE REAL
Moose are so big, holy shit I thought they were like deer size
holy shit I thought that was a fucking dinosaur
I kno what the heck
