From Edwin Shaw’s The teacher of sparring.
Pimp strong and prosper.
Where’s my nine hour movie trilogy about THIS. Because I need it.
oh my god!?
"Oh my god" is, somehow, a perfect summary of my thoughts, Gav, thank you for your input.
Now, if someone around here had the gentleness and amicability to point me to the general direction of my bunk, I might be found in it anytime soon, probably drooling on my self whilst muttering incoherent words about fake fur and tight trousers.
It’s the hat. It’s totally the hat.
The hat just makes the outfit. That said, does anyone else want to see an episode with 70’s pimp!Irving? ‘Cause I think I may need that.
Yesterday, I whined until people prompted me with things to worldbuild, and people delivered. Naturally, other people, from the life that I’m not supposed to have because I am a nerd, kept stalling me. Unforgivable.
And speaking of forgiveness, Onesie made a noticeable appearance in my Askbox a few minutes ago to know whatever happened to that food post, and I started feeling extremely guilty. (I also promised Nova and Sully lots of sex, but those two are accustomed to waiting.)
Please bear in mind that it is currently way past 4 in the morning and that all my little grey cells might not be present for report. Just saying.
Food, glorious food!Food! What would the basic diet of Asgard be? Would it be anything like the sort of diet that the Norse would have known?
If you asked Christopher Eccleston about it, he would tell you that they probably enjoy a good moose head or something.FANDRAL Our dearest friend banished, Loki on the throne, Asgard on the brink of war, yet you manage to consume four wild boar, six pheasant, a side of beef, and two casks of ale. Shame on you! Don't you care?!
There are forests around Asgard and I suppose they can import lots of exotic stuff from the Realms they have access to thanks to the Bifröst, and they are not so numerous that the reserves would diminish any time soon… although I like to think they don’t all eat like Volstagg.
But frankly, between you and I—fish. FISH. There is water everywhere on Asgard, and even though the Art Book confirms that the whole contour of the planetoid is a colossal waterfall (which should make life very difficult for any salmon living in there no matter what happens to that water, you know) I’d say they have at least some ponds for the fray.
Nobody ever thinks of the fish.
(Tomorrow I’ll be speaking of animals, so there’ll be more food talk. I hope that, while I’m asleep, a few people will have commented. = cue.)
First of all, Onesie! I think that may be the cutest nickname anyone has given me! And you are forgiven for taking a while, these things happen.
Next, fish! I figured meat would be a big part of the menu, but fish didn’t really occur to me. But it does make me wonder about fruits, veggies and grains. I suppose that you could get that kind of thing imported through the bifrost, but if there’s ever a crisis and the bifrost needs to be closed what then? I doubt they could live off of meat and whatever they find in the forests indefinitely. So do they have farmland? And if they do, where would they put it on such a seemingly small asteroid? I would assume that they do, but assuming things can get you into trouble when it comes to worldbuilding.
can we take a moment to acknowledge that WTNV literally just did an episode in which Cecil referred to a conscious, severed man’s right hand by female pronouns for the entire show because the hand identified as a female
can we just take a moment to appreciate the perfect blend of social justice and fucked-up-surreality that is this beautiful, beautiful podcast
Seriously though, bless the writing on this show.* I was emotionally invested in the relationship between Megan and the computer, more than Carlos/Cecil even! You have to admire that kind of strong writing.
*I can’t bring myself to call WTNV a podcast, it’s kind of like calling The Daily Show a “news program”, it doesn’t really fully describe what WTNV is as a whole.
I probably shouldn’t be showing this to the Doctor Who fandom but…

This is terrible. I should be sorry for posting this, but I’m not. I laughed my way through the entire thing.

Well, there’s twenty of you lovely people following me now, and that’s wonderful. I’m grateful for all of you. But I do have a question concerning my blog; well, a few questions actually.
Is there anything you would like to see more of? Anything you would like to see less of? Anything I’m not covering that you’d like to see?
Basically I’m looking for some feedback here. Leave an ask or a fanmail letting me know what you think! And thanks again for following me!

For all my followers wherever you are.
I’ve always been that girl to imagine that life would be better in another time but reading Ken Follett’s Fall of Giants… just wow. I’m literally disgusted by own ignorance. I’m good at history but I allowed myself to imagine the bad things weren’t nearly as bad, instead I was captivated by the clothing and the style of the time. He made it so real and truthful that I can’t imagine I ever wanted to live in those times. I don’t even think I can finish the book it gives me such anxiety. I know they are fictional characters, but those characters represent people that actually underwent the horrors of Tsarist Russia, of the coal mines, of the first world war.
As a Russian with most of my relatives including my dad off the boat, I can attest for them that living there truly sucked hahaha.
Oh I hear that! One of my favorite periods of history is the French Revolution, I’m pretty sure that I wouldn’t have lasted five minutes back then. Sure, the clothes are pretty, at least what we get to see of them from paintings and the pieces that have survived, but the reality of those times is usually pretty harsh if you weren’t in the upper classes.
