This will probably be uncomfortable for all of us.

I'd like to offer moral support, but I have questionable morals. (Cis/bi/magical realism girl.)

  2. a few words concerning Jeyne Westerling, Jeyne Poole and their importance in Robb and Theon’s storylines

    janiedean:

    Along with a nice epilogue about how much D&D could have gotten it a lot better when talking about the adaptation.

    [this meta is dedicated to emiliosandoz - she said she’d post hers on Theon if I dusted this off from my drafts and actually finished and I’m upholding my part of the bargain]

    with this, I mean how the fact that Jeyne Poole isn’t the show so far and that Jeyne Westerling was changed into a new character with a different name, are both imo pretty bad moves. Meaning: it probably doesn’t change *too much* in the big picture and it certainly isn’t as horrible as some of the book/show divergences until this point (I mean, the basic economy of the story and the basic outcomes didn’t change, but the way it went changes things a lot) it still shows that they missed one of the most interesting parallelisms going on with Robb and Theon’s storylines and that they also missed a good part of the entire point of both narratives.

    (Disclaimer the first: obviously I have no clue if they’re still planning to introduce Jeyne Poole - I should hope - but even if they do and she’s everything she is in the book it still doesn’t work because of the changing-Jeyne-Westerling-to-Talisa deal.)

    Dude, Peter Capaldi totally refused to flirt with Clara in the new series.

    Damn, I’m so ready for this.

    In that same article he states that he’s going to make the story line less confusing and over the top and focus on the plot. I think I’m in love.

“I haven’t read Harry Potter, I have read Pullman who is the other leading children’s author that one might mention and I love his books. I don’t know what to think about magic and fairy tales.”


Prof Dawkins said he wanted to look at the effects of “bringing children up to believe in spells and wizards”.


“I think it is anti-scientific – whether that has a pernicious effect, I don’t know,” he told More4 News.


“I think looking back to my own childhood, the fact that so many of the stories I read allowed the possibility of frogs turning into princes, whether that has a sort of insidious affect on rationality, I’m not sure. Perhaps it’s something for research.”

  7. bronchitis secret: sometimes I have vivid, filmic narrative dreams. I once dreamt what felt like an entire Stephen King novel about a man (played by Aaron Pedersen) returning to his childhood town in the mountains only to realise the entire town is possessed and maybe always was. last night’s dream was about the return of the messiah in some kind of 1930/1950’s pastiche of southern gothic america, complete with motorcycles, freedom rides, drug use and leather jackets - the main character was Johnny Baptist, a hard drinking dude who forgives everyone who wrongs him but can’t find forgiveness himself.

  10. bronchitis secret: every diary I’ve ever kept has been in a kind of code - not a cipher or anything so complex, just a vague metaphorical system of symbols so I almost never make specific reference to a person or event. I’m not sure if this is because I read A.S. Byatt’s Possession at a tender age or because I started keeping diaries at boarding school. I’m also not sure who I thought was dedicated enough to doing me malice to attempt to unravel my appallingly cramped handwriting, let alone my lazy poetics.

  11. jamiemacdonalds said: what sort of books do you think jamie would read for pleasure?

    soyonscruels:

    hahahahahahaha. 

    • he has been dragging the same copy of a theology of liberation around with him since circa 1980, it is probably very dirty and dog-eared and jealously guarded from everyone, including his nine million brothers and every other ordinand in the seminary. he lent it to malcolm around ‘84 or so, on the very specific promise that he has to get it back as soon as malcolm is finished with it. malcolm gave it back to him, exactly as it came to him, and unleashed a devastating critique on thatcher’s collusion with pinochet and the implications thereof of the suppression of liberation theology in chile, wasnae that why ye gave is this? jamie had already decided to follow the mad bastard anywhere, but it was still pretty great. (no one else has ever been allowed to so much as touch his copy.)
    • irvine welsh pisses him off, because much as jamie is the most feral scot to ever scot, he doesn’t actually like it when you dismiss his country as full of lunatic workshy alcoholics. that said, he’s probably read every novel the man’s ever written, racked with paroxysms of fury the whole time.
    • i should imagine that actually most political fiction and thrillers are deeply frustrating to jamie, as they do not in any sense depict the political world as he lives it, by turns mundane and terrifying, but never glamorous, and idealistic only in the very pragmatic sense. i can see him liking mid-20th century sci-fi of the type of john wyndham and j.g. ballard and michael moorcock, whose works deal with the hypocrisies and class strata of british society, rendered into hellscapes. he probably also quite likes michel faber’s under the skin.
    • obviously, he has read all of orwell, although he doesn’t like him as much as some people, and is inherently suspicious of canonizing anyone who went to eton. he spends a lot of time having to clean up the messes of old etonians, and that’s just in his own party. both he and malcolm like david peace's red riding quartet because it makes them nostalgic for their old days of sniffing out corruption on a local, and the damned united is a shoo-in because brian clough was a footballer and a socialist, the jackpot. also, lbr, they like pat barker. he empathises quite a lot with billy prior.

    The list of advice reads:

    Keep calm and reassure other people who may be nearby.

    Don’t hold the person down or try to stop his or her movements.

    Time the seizure with your watch.

    Clear the area around the person of anything hard or sharp.

    Put something soft (folded sweatshirt) under their head.

    DO NOT try to force open their mouth with anything hard or your finger!

    Turn the person gently onto one side. This will help keep the airway clear.

    Stay with the person until the seizure has ended naturally.

    Be friendly and reassuring as consciousness returns.

    Offer to call a friend, relative, or taxi to help the person get home if they need assistance.

    Seizure First Aid. 

    Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it. 

    100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)

    This is so important!

    So many people don’t understand how to react to a seizure. This is important.

    God only knows how many times I’ve done this and how many people I really wish knew this to have helped me as a little girl.

    Would have been nice to know when I witnessed a seizure on Friday at con by Hall H. So scary :/

  14. "They call us now.
    Before they drop the bombs.
    The phone rings
    and someone who knows my first name
    calls and says in perfect Arabic
    “This is David.”
    And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies
    still smashing around in my head
    I think “Do I know any Davids in Gaza?”
    They call us now to say
    Run.
    You have 58 seconds from the end of this message.
    Your house is next.
    They think of it as some kind of war time courtesy.
    It doesn’t matter that
    there is nowhere to run to.
    It means nothing that the borders are closed
    and your papers are worthless
    and mark you only for a life sentence
    in this prison by the sea
    and the alleyways are narrow
    and there are more human lives
    packed one against the other
    more than any other place on earth
    Just run.
    We aren’t trying to kill you.
    It doesn’t matter that
    you can’t call us back to tell us
    the people we claim to want aren’t in your house
    that there’s no one here
    except you and your children
    who were cheering for Argentina
    sharing the last loaf of bread for this week
    counting candles left in case the power goes out.
    It doesn’t matter that you have children.
    You live in the wrong place
    and now is your chance to run
    to nowhere.
    It doesn’t matter
    that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
    to find your wedding album
    or your son’s favorite blanket
    or your daughter’s almost completed college application
    or your shoes
    or to gather everyone in the house.
    It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
    It doesn’t matter who you are
    Prove you’re human.
    Prove you stand on two legs.
    Run."
