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!

That’s it. That’s their relationship.

These two are definitely my favourite Downton Abbey pairing now! I don’t care about the romances, these two are comedy gold! They are totally best friends even if Violet would never admit it!

They are soooo funny together and I can’t wait to see what havoc Violet’s matchmaking causes!

Hi Niamh. Sorry if I caused offence. What I meant was pretty pictures showing the countries in the UK, as that was why I was reblogging it.

As Ireland (as opposed to Northern Ireland) isn’t in the UK, I meant it would work better as a post if it was Northern Ireland, not Ireland.

I’d have thought pointing out that it’s Northern Ireland in the UK, not Ireland, is the most politically correct.

But again I wanna say no offence was meant.

silverducks said: Hi! Just wanted to say I understand about people in London not choosing it either. I don't know where you stand politically (or what else you'd have liked to have said about my post! LOL! Free free to say :-) ) but I think there's a lot of political unrest across the whole of the UK & there's definitely this feeling in the North that we're controlled too much by the South East. How true that really is, I don't know, nor how easy it would be to fix, but shake up would be good! :-)

ripplesfromawaterlily:

That’s ok! :)  As someone who used to work with young people in the North on a regular basis, I am definitely aware of how people there feel. I would certainly acknowledge that the level of feeling disconnected is higher and this is sometimes for different reasons than it is in London. I am also aware of the higher levels of poverty and struggle that many of your communities face. However if you look at some of the maps/statistics of political representation/poverty/service cuts we in London, although culturally different are often more alike to you. A large blob of red in an otherwise Southeastern sea of blue!

As to the rest of your post, it was the Ireland thing as I know you acknowledge it but I would personally be scared to post something like that as it is such a sensitive topic. Also I don’t think the results in Scotland are that conclusive and I am not quite so optimistic that this will be used as an opportunity for change like that, although of course it would be nice!

Thanks for responding! :)

What I meant about London was more that the main politics of the UK is run from there. And that a lot of the politics seems to see things from a London perspective - an elitist and financially well off London perspective! And I think all the parties are guilty of this to some extent, tbh.

I hope you’re wrong about it not shaking things up though. I don’t really know what can be done for the best, but there are too many differences across the UK for it all to be controlled from a central point, ie London. But I am glad Scotland had the chance to vote - and they voted to stay in. It means (hopefully!) the time that would have been spent sorting out just what is going to happen now with everything, can be used to look at the issues and make good changes to strengthen the UK.

You do have far better public transport in London though! I just love your oyster card system ;-)

And I never thought about Ireland being a touchy subject, I just saw that it was a UK thing, so Northern Ireland, not just Ireland - purely a geographical correction! I do apologise if that caused any offence.

#Just reblogging this in case I did cause any offence/confusion. I promise not to get too politcal #Cause I doubt anyone cares about my opinions on that! LOL! :-) #And I am by no means an expert in politics at all!

Reblogging some pretty pictures as very pleased Scotland decided to continue to remain with us in the UK.
#Though it should really be Northern Ireland in the gif, but I couldn’t see any others with pretty pictures to reblog
#And not to get too political on my blog, but I’m kinda finding it hard to not laugh at all the Tumblr posts about rejecting freedom. Independence from the UK and freedom are definitely not the same thing! I mean, Scotland had the choice to leave or stay. That’s not about choosing freedom! If they didn’t have freedom, they’d never even have been given the choice to vote! 
#And you can’t really compare the situation in the UK with other parts of the world, such as where other regions of countries want independence. It’s the UNITED Kingdom - which means England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are already their own countries. So it’s kinda a lot more complicated - and historical - than all that.
#And I’m glad they had the chance to vote, because they had a say in their future. And I really hope it helps reform politics across the whole of the UK! It’s not just the Scots who don’t like being controlled from London - I’m in the North of England and we get stuck with the rubbish they choose from London too!

LOVE this from the trailer! And I’m very happy they’re not only focusing on this in the film, but see it as big enough to include in the trailer!

Because BOTH sides use - and abuse - Katniss and Peeta. They ARE treated like weapons by Snow and Coin, not people, and that is such an important thing from the books for me. It shows what both sides are capable of and how both are pretty much as bad as each other in many ways.

I don’t want them to change me in there.
Turn me into some kind of monster that I’m not.

Ok, why would someone do this! This post is just cruel!

I hate that the one thing Peeta wanted - to stay himself - the Capitol took away from him. Same with Katniss and Prim.

Urgh - the characters go through so much, I really don’t know how I’ll survive the films. At least I do know what happens in the end, but that isn’t all good!

I just wanted to keep Peeta alive.

Have to say, this was probably my favourite thing about the trailer! I loved that Katniss made the point she was just trying to save Prim and Peeta! And her reaction when she sees Peeta alive is brilliant! Can’t wait to see it in the film. I hope the pearl makes a few appearances too, they did have it in CF, so I’m hopeful.

I just really liked that we FINALLY had a Everlark focused trailer. Considering Everlark are end game, there’s been far too many Galeniss orientated trailers! This was a very welcome change.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Trailer – “The Mockingjay Lives”

Ok, I’ll admit I didn’t have very high expectations for this trailer (Lionsgate tend to suck pretty badly when it comes to marketing this film.)

So it wouldn’t be very hard to exceed my expectations, but this trailer is AWESOME!

The settings and action and atmosphere all look brilliant and I definitely think it’ll be a rollercoaster ride of a film! Not sure if I’ll survive it though!

Darn it Muse!

So, one of the reasons I’m trying to have this break from Tumblr is to get on and finish writing my fanfics.

And whilst my muse has decided to visit, she’s determined to write the wrong story! I’m meant to be finishing my Sif/Loki dancing story, It Takes Two To Tango, but all she wants to write is a continuation of my random Matched crossover fic, A Matched Made In Asgard.

Silly muse! Why can’t you write what I want you to write? You got the right ship, now write the correct story!
