Hi! I'm from the UK and my favourite things at the moment are Downton Abbey, Thor and the Avengers, The Hunger Games, Merlin and Doctor Who.

Links Some of my favourite ships include Mary and Matthew from Downton Abbey, Sif and Loki from Thor, Peeta and Katniss from The Hunger Games, Amy and Rory from Doctor Who and Snow White and William from Snow White and the Huntsman.

I’ll mainly be posting about my favourite shows and ships, and any other random things I like the look of!

serious question

how I am expected to watch this film, in public, without having a complete emotional meltdown

I’m hoping everyone else will be too busy crying to notice me! I’m not sure if being prepared is a good thing, or a bad thing…

Mockingjay Part 1 - TV Spot #3 - “Most Anticipated”

GAH! Can’t even survive this trailer, how will I ever manage a full film of Everlark and Peeta angst.

And just to rub salt in the wound, we have to wait a whole year for the next film!

Even knowing what’s going to happen from the books isn’t gonna help either with this film or the long wait!

#Seriously Lionsgate #You’re actually doing something right for a change #Trailers that make millions of fan’s hearts shatter into millions of pieces #Yep, you finally realised the importance of Peeta.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 “CHOICE,” presented by DORITOS®

I just can’t with this trailer ok. I am not prepared for what will happen to Peeta. A few second clip was too much, how will I handle the film!?!

Though very glad they’re making the theme about Peeta being paramount to the rebellion. Is he finally going to get the limelight he deserves?

One of my favorite stories so please continue! :)
Ahh, thanks! :-)
I definitely am continuing it, but I need to stop thinking up more chapters for it and actually finish the next chapter! I kinda decided to wait until the whole (very long apparently!) story was written before posting any more, but I’m not sure I can wait! Kinda tempted to just post a “sneak peak” as it were of the next chapter… LOL!
I just get so distracted with these two that I’m always thinking of new ideas and not finishing writing the ones I have!

#inktober day 19: sorry guys but today ink is for the lulz!! I rewatched #thortdw the last day and I couldn’t stop myself but making a little pic-summary of the thing. (cont)

I love Sif and Loki’s glance at each other, just like if they were alone on the pic… cutest thing I’ve seen today

This is adorable! I especially love Loki and Sif in the corner. Sif’s all “Betray him and I will kill you.” And Loki’s all like, “yeah right Sif, bring that knife along when I see ya later ‘k.”

Oh dear

Just outlining the next few chapters of my Sifki dancing story, It Takes Two To Tango, and it’s getting longer and longer! The chapter count has nearly doubled!!!

Why can’t my muse just write short stories! I might actually finish writing one then!

panemforfuturereference replied to your post “panemforfuturereference replied to your post “ywhiterain replied to…”

It seems like the “But Peeta wanted them so badly.” line is what critics are hung over. Could it have been worded better, or are people looking for an excuse for outrage? Honest question as I personally didn’t see an issue with the line.

The thing is is that, I think, the reader honestly has no idea how Peeta felt about having children until that line whereas we are privy to Katniss’s maternal instincts and urges.  Still, just because Peeta wanted something badly does not support a reading where Katniss did not herself want to have children.

I’ve dug up a handful of my other posts about Katniss’s decision re having children:

and this convo:

My take on the line “But Peeta wanted them so badly.” is just another example of Katniss not wanting to admit to herself what she wants. We see all through the books she has trouble admitting what she really feels and wants to herself. Others can see it, but Katniss won’t let herself.

To me, it’s just Katniss being who she is, that even with everything that’s happened and after all this time, she’s still not quite able tobe honest with herself and her wishes and feelings.

And I’m sorry, but there’s no way:

a) Katniss would allow Peeta to force her into something she didn’t actually want 

b) Peeta would push Katniss into something she didn’t want!

I think people who misinterpret that line must have misinterpreted a lot of the books!

I commissioned metalshell to color this because I love it too much for words. Thank you sooo much, Rosie! Beautiful! ❤

This is too gorgeous! I love the colours and their faces!
And I love how their clothes are quite ordinary, not their usual armour. Like it’s an AU, or they’re just chilling around Asgard in between big adventures :-)

Apple and Facebook Are Paying Employees to Freeze Their Eggs →

On Tuesday, NBC News reported that two of the biggest companies in the world — Facebook and Apple — have come up with a unique perk for their employees: egg freezing. Facebook started offering the benefit earlier this year, and Apple is set to follow suit by next January. Both companies are subsidizing the procedure by up to $20,000; it normally costs around $10,000 for each round of extraction, plus about $500 per year for storage.

But it’s not all good news for women

Heard about this on the news today and, ok, so please anon hate me if you like, but I find this kinda disgusting tbh. They’re basically saying, hey, women, you can’t have kids and a career, we don’t want to pay you to go on maternity leave! Why not just freeze your eggs instead!?!

I mean, how insulting! Completely ignoring the fact that freezing eggs is not guaranteed to work at all (the article says less than 25% for over 30s), that having kids later on in life adds to all sorts of complications, that men could take a more active role in raising children so it’s more shared out and, hello! the fact that women have been balancing kids and careers for decades already!

Why not offer real perks and give better resources to the parents with kids, so it would be easier for them to have kids when they want!

And y’know, if you reallllllly want to promote feminism, why not pay women fairer wages, allow more women to have higher positions, give them the credit for being actually perfectly capable anyway!

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with freezing eggs, but to promote it like it boosts feminism and is a “perk” kinda makes me feel sick! Like the company you work for gets to control something like that! And it wouldn’t surprise me if women who actually want to have kids now at these companies get penalised for it.

#Urgh, this just makes me mad! #And ok, if I’m completely off base here #Or you just wanna disagree #Or agree #My askbox is always open.
