Reading is my favourite sport, and I do suppose I'm a Nerdfighter.
I do adore Agents of SHIELD (especially FitzSimmons), Pacific Rim, Star Trek, SNK, HP, Skulduggery Pleasant, DW, Teen Wolf, Artemis Fowl, Starkid, Avatar, TimeRiders, Buffy, and Marvel, amongst many other things.
Noise is a man unfiltered, and without a filter, man is just Chaos Walking.
flirting like “hope you like puns, star trek, and puns about star trek”
This scene still breaks my heart each and every single time I watch it.
Azula was a terrible, horrible person. She would have set the world aflame and laughed over the broken carcass of her brother.
But she was fourteen.
She was so ruined and twisted by her childhood and by her nation, driven to insanity by the expectations placed upon her.
Azula was bad and yet I can’t help but feel so terribly sorry for her.
"I don’t have sob stories like all of you."
SHE WAS FUCKING FOURTEEN WHAT
"My own mother….thought I was a monster.
She was right, of course, but it still hurt.”
actually, i think one of the shows strengths is that they didn’t shy away from what a horrible tragedy this was. even though she was clearly a villain and did unspeakably awful things, this scene was still framed as sad. there was no celebrating- they just look at her sadly.
the music for the battle that leads up to this moment is sad too- it’s an epic battle, visually probably one of the biggest things done in the entire series, and they could have played it with thumping, energetic, dangerous music. but instead it’s quiet and somber. because the whole scenario is heartbreaking, and they know it.
i think the fact that a kid’s show had so much respect for it’s viewers and their ability to understand the complexity of this situation is what makes avatar great.
Star Wars AU: Everything is the same, except R2-D2 doesn’t make beeps and whistles, and is instead voiced by Kayne West, who is given no script but is just reacting to all the crazy space shit going on around his little robot homie.
The Hobbit teaser looks mighty cool. Colour me excited.
Buffy: Is that why you’re always cleaning your glasses? So you won’t have to see what we’re doing?
Giles: Tell no one.
Stiles plays Cards Against Humanity

do u ever look at someone’s characterization of one of ur faves and just sit there offended on behalf of the character
Yeah, but the problem is that it’s the showrunner.
you know that stage you went through where you hated being a girl and you just resented yourself and everything having to do with girly things because you were so sick of pink and barbies being pushed on you so you like full force rejected that shit and you were just so full of hate and vitriol at anything even the slightest bit “girly” yeah gender norms will fuck you up
The Best April Fools’ Prank (That I Shall Ever Do)
Once upon a time, I decided that it was my solemn obligation to prank my friends before we graduated.
So…I made Hogwarts Acceptance letters. A lot of them. Because who isn’t still waiting for their freaking letter to arrive?
My hand hated me so much. Also, cursive G is the worst.
Letters were posted. All was well.
Until this happened…
This is literally the best thing I have ever seen in my entire life.
