i’m not normally into doctor who, but i’m watching the new season because i’ve seen both capaldi and coleman in other things and enjoyed their screen presence immensely.
i’m liking it fine, but i’m hoping for less group scenes and more and better capaldi-coleman one on one interaction, because i feel it in my heart that with the right material, the actors would play off each other fabulously (i’m thinking restaurant scene episode 1).
i’ve probably been really unlucky with the cutter era episodes i’ve happened to watch, but lord jesus, whenever i catch one of them i just can’t figure out how that gentleman became an EADA.
i’ve never had this problem with either stone or mccoy.
i’ve seen meta comparing cutter to mccoy. i do and don’t see it. because yeah, mccoy was a loud and crazy rules-bending asshole, too, but i never really wondered how he got where he was because he was also shown to be supremely competent on a regular basis? this point was stressed a lot in his first two years.
not talking about the episodes where jack pulls crazy stunts that are barely legal or gets ridiculously theatrical in a courtroom, idc about those. by competency, i mean what he does in subtler episodes like house counsel and jeopardy, when he wins because it’s crystal clear the dude knows the law like the back of his hand (like basically 95% of ben stone’s episodes). you can question his ethics, his mental health, even his morals, but mccoy’s lawyering game cannot be denied.
i don’t doubt episodes like that featuring mike cutter exist, i just haven’t seen them.
i want things for nico. i’ve read all the books of riordans goddamn middle grade pjo series and i’ve managed to avoid caring about its cast of characters enough to actually think about them after i’m done with each book.
but now i want things for nico.
i want him to master shadow travel to a point where he can do it smoothly, cover great distances accurately without it sapping much of his energy.
i want him to be a globetrotter. fuck settling down at one of the camps. FUCK. THAT. EXPLORE ALL CORNERS OF THE (LIVING) WORLD, BB!! saint petersburg! kathmandu! bergen! kiss all the boys, kiss all the girls too, if you’re so inclined!! or don’t kiss anyone and just enjoy the view! that’s dandy as well! make new friends! you befriended bob (true hero of HoH imho), you TOTALLY have it in you, bb.
if the globetrotting attracts monsters, be a bamf and slay them. if they overpower you, go out in a blaze of glory, but have fun out there!!
check on hazel from time to time (if she, too, gets to live). let her hug and smooch you. send a card or an edible arrangement whenever the other demigods have a birthday/get married/have a baby/wtfever.
just go out there and challenge the fate of children of hades leading unhappy lives.
you went through tartarus alone. YOU’RE A FUCKING ROCK, BB, just roll and do your thang.
I never gave him a second thought. You probably saved our lives by being nice to him.”
"Yeah, well," Nico said, "not giving people a second thought… that can be dangerous."
after House of Hades, i’m not even sure if i should bother reading the next book in the series. i literally can’t find a single fuck to give about any character except nico.
i have lingering fondness for leo and hazel (and reyna and poor, poor calypso), but true emotional investment? just nico.
…before i forget to post this.
it’s just occurred to me that any sudden movement from charles in the wrong direction during that scene (like turning back to look at erik) and we’d have had an entirely different (and probably fatal) bullet mishap.
Claire & black leather jackets (Censure, Scoundrels, Guardian, Rebels, Aftershock)
reblogging myself because i need this to be my top post somewhere for a while because feelings.
i still hate that they killed her, but i love that she died with that jacket.
& an ode to claire kincaid’s leather jacket (i’m pretty sure the jacket in aftershock is the same one she wears in scoundrels and guardians, not the one we see her trying out in rebels, but it’s the FEELING that counts and rings oh so right).
Olivet: But Jack, this is an extreme case. A jury’s gonna want to know why she did what she did.
(S06x08 - Angel)
i wanna read his college paper on surveiller et punir.
Anonymous said: Do you still like claire kincaid? would you consider giving up your url?
is the fact that i’m currently using the url and don’t plan to not use it in the future not enough for you???? should i be posting about her every second of every day??? there is another blog that does that, yknow
basically fuck off i’ve had this url since 2012 and i’m pretty fucking sure i deserve it ok
i’m paranoid and obnoxious about my paranoia so lemme take YET ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY to reiterate that i’m not that anon!
