Good evening! I'm an English English graduate with an interest in all kinds of fun things, and a will to find even more. I reblog whatever I feel like at that moment, including but by no means limited to: Dr Who, Song of Ice and Fire, Homestuck, Pokemon, Avatar TLA/TLK, Zelda, Final Fantasy, Dept Heaven, Whedonverse. Usually not things that specifically ask me to reblog them, though. *****************************************************

THUNDERSTORMS THUNDERSTORMS THUNDERSTORMS are amazing and I love them, even when they keep me up.
Really, there is absolutely nothing that cannot be improved with a little Sturm und Drang. Except maybe sunbathing. But thunderstorms beat sunbathing, because you can sit in your dressing gown by a crackling fire with a glass of whatever takes your fancy, and casually read a leather-bound tome, and it is literally the classiest you can be without a royal entourage or wooden panelling.
Although I actually kind of want to go outside and run around, even though it’ll be cold and wet and will probably stop being fun within the first minute, so I’ll just sit by the window instead, even though I actually should be up in 5 hours, so maybe bed would be a better place.
And now the birds are singing. FUCKING BIRDS. SHUT UP. GIVE ME MORE THUNDER.
PRAISE BE TO THOR.

And now for a Doctor Who and the Pirates quote spam:

"He has very bad taste in clothes, but a lovely smile."

"It was awful. Not just the death. But no-one really cared. If there’s someone left behind who cares, it makes the life more meaningful. Terrible for those left behind, but I think it’s important. But then, perhaps, if you have just one person who cares, you’re able to go on living. You’re not so quick to throw your life away."

"How terrible! Pirates!" *dramatic musical cue* "No, wait, we’ve had this conversation already."

"Good never wins out in real life. Love never conquers all. There’s no such thing as happily ever after." "Ah, but if virtue is triumphant only in theatrical performances, what you need is a good musical number!" "Oh no! You ARE going to sing!" "Yes, I am!" /BEST CLIFFHANGER EVER

Homura style! >:D

It’s 4:00 AM. Time for a random Madoka appreciation post!
That’s Puella Magi Madoka Magica, an anime in which young schoolgirls are recruited and empowered by a cat/rabbit hybrid creature to fight supernatural creatures that feed on despair.
Yes, it’s a fairly standard premise, but the way it’s developed is far from standard. Basically, take some typical ‘magical girl’ genre tropes - a boundlessly-optimistic cast, the power of friendship, ineffectual monsters of the week, a marketably adorable mascot character - and twist them into the most realistic, horrific forms conceivable. Turns out that adding ‘the safety of humanity’ to a typical adolescent’s list of responsibilities is perhaps not the wisest of ideas.
Not that any knowledge of the genre is necessary; the plot moves at a swift pace, and the characters have a surprising amount of depth and growth for a series only 12 20-minute episodes long. Take the above picture - there’s only about 15 minutes between each of those shots, but the character’s development is so drastic that you could more easily believe a whole season had elapsed. And yet it makes perfect sense, and happens to be one of the most heartbreaking episodes of a particularly emotional series.
So, in summary - it’s unique, the plot and characters both make sense and are emotionally engaging, everything about the production is perfectly thematically appropriate, and it’s very very short. Go watch it now.
