Tea, chocolate & books

...makes my world go around....
Slightly immature chocoholic with too many teapots and books all over. I indulge daily in scifi, fantasy & fanfic.
This blog contains Glee, Teen Wolf, Doctor Who and chocolate in heavy doses.

Stories are now beginning to be told that include all different types and kinds of sexuality, and characters who aren’t there for the sake of being gay, they just happen to be gay. It’s actually the stories around their lives that are what keep us interested. I do think that in the next generation we will see an even bigger difference in how gay people are shown in the media and in film because people are getting over it, finally.

I heard a joke once: Man goes to the doctor. Says he’s depressed, life is harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world. Doctor says, “treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. “But Doctor” he says, “I am Pagliacci.”

"What do you think? Tighten a few screws here, replace a belt there?"
"I think I’ve seen roadkill that looks better than this engine.” 
"So… that means you can fix it, right?"
"Maybe, if you’re not in a hurry.”

Sterek AU: Stiles’ car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately for him he finds a lonely gas station manned by a ridiculously hot mechanic who might be able to help him. Not so fortunately for him, there’s a reason Derek Hale is lying low out here in careful obscurity. When the danger from Derek’s past catches up with him before the repairs are finished, Stiles finds himself sucked into the adventure of a lifetime. Thrown together in a struggle for survival, Stiles becomes increasingly drawn to his taciturn new companion while Derek discovers to his confused surprise that apparently not everyone in the world is willing to betray him just to save themselves.

Normally we don’t get involved with private affairs, but the continued outpouring of grief, praise, remembrance, and love for Robin Williams we’ve seen on Tumblr has been staggering. He gave his gifts selflessly, and was a beacon of sorts to those of us who had a weird time figuring out how our energies and talents fit into the world.
Remember, if you’re struggling, there’s help. We love ya, Tumblr.
And goodbye, Robin. We love you, too.

I loved this so much. It was really one of the first times I saw a female character address sexism onscreen and it made a HUGE impact on me. She was scared, she was the girlfriend of one of the leads, but she was still capable, brave, intelligent and she was the girlfriend because she wanted to be, not because she had to be for the hero to have someone to save.

I love you, Dr. Satler. Never change.

There’s room for everybody in this community, and it’s the same way with this show and this genre, there’s room for everybody and you can’t get better than that. It’s like TV grew up and became part of today, for the real world that we live in. There’s real people, there’s gay people, there’s straight people, there’s transgender people, there’s… mutated people, you know, there’s people who can control the weather, there’s undead people, everybody fits and it’s a great world to live in

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

kurt gen week: musical theatre
↳ “…when viewers look back on this episode, what they’ll remember first is Kurt singing that song from ‘Sunset Boulevard,’ claiming it, and shifting its meanings around to tell his story. In the stage musical, the song entombed faded silent film star Norma Desmond within her own sad fantasies of a comeback. It was a song of delusion, written with great sympathy for Norma. But Chris Colfer turns ‘As If We Never Said Goodbye’ into a valentine to self-knowledge and self-improvement — and a young, gay singer’s dream of treating the world as a stage and commanding it like a star.” (X)

jim and jamie dutcher, determined to show “the hidden life of wolves”, lived for six years with a pack of wolves in the idaho wilderness of yellowstone. a constant but unobtrusive presence, the dutchers earned the unshakable trust of the wolves, and came to know them as complex, highly intelligent animals with distinct individual personalities, who are caring, playful and above all devoted to family.

"only a select few other species exhibit these same traits so clearly," they note. "they are capable of not only emotion but also real compassion. this is the view of the wolf that we want to share. …it is an animal that cares for its sick and desperately needs to be part of something bigger than itself - the pack. the bond a wolf has to its pack is certainly as strong as the bond a human being has to his or her family."

they add, “rarely did two wolves pass each other without playfully rubbing shoulders together or exchanging a brief lick. so often we would see two wolves relaxing together, curled up beside each other.” the dutchers also recount wolf behavior rarely documented: grief at the death of a pack mate; excitement over the birth of pups; and the shared role of raising young pack members.

but as the wolves struggle to reestablish their foothold in the american west, their public demonization continues.  say the dutchers, “as we see wolves, once again, being shot, trapped and poisoned, we recognize that our unique experience, living with wolves, is unlikely to ever happen again, and for that reason we feel that we have an obligation to share the lives of these wolves we with the widest audience possible.”

it’s not just the wolves at stake, but the entire yellowstone ecosystem. wolves keep the elk gene pool strong (no other predator does this); they redistribute elk herds, allowing vegetation to recover along rivers and streams, which provides food for beavers; and they keep the number of coyotes in check, which helps to maintain populations of rodents, antelopes and birds of prey.
