Late-night viewing of Star Trek: TOS with troublesmysight and some silly speculations/hardcore Kirk/Spock shipper flailing/research into fringe canon about potential Vulcan intoxicants, has yielded two dubious creations:
1. A Post-It note masterpiece drawing of a Vulcan, who is either unusually cheery or slightly inebriated, by myself.
2. A disturbingly sweet new variety of shot, created in joint venture by myself and my sister:
2 parts peppermint schnapps
1 part chocolate milk
1 maraschino cherry
sprinkles, preferably green
Those Aussie Things: Dichen Lachman
I’m noticing a lot of these maidens checking you out.
Gamora, surgically modified and trained as a living weapon. The adopted daughter of the mad titan, Thanos. Recently, Thanos lent her and her sister, Nebula out to Ronan, which leads us to believe that Thanos and Ronan are working together.
Breathtaking views show the stars, Milky Way, airglow, and light pollution over New Zealand skies.
"Here are images I captured during last months from New Zealand. Great country to catch colors of airglow almost everywhere…" - Petr Horálek

Hello! How about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for the fandom ask meme?
Either Coulson or Mike Peterson, leaning towards Coulson.
(with a bonus nod for Peter MacNicol’s character in The Well, but I cannot recall his name as I’ve just gotten used to mentally referring to him as ‘Asgardian Larry Fleinhardt’, so he probably doesn’t count)
I am going to have to go with Jemma Simmons on this one.
(Her cuteness is only a very small factor in this, I swear!)
Simmons’ intelligence, and most importantly, her quiet strength of character is totally enough for me to absolutely love her.
There are so many great female characters in this show that it’s almost hard to pick though. (Which is an EXCELLENT problem to have)
WARD. He was the weakest link of the team and the least compelling character from the start, and once the big HYDRA and 'let me shoot people in the head and drop my friends in the ocean but it's okay because I maybe didn’t shoot my dog once but let’s be honest I probably did' character arc happened… Yeah. No real contest, there.
Skimmons. Even less contest, here. The first time they hugged in FZZT I remember very clearly saying, out loud, “Oh no. Oh no. I have a new ship." and it just got even better from them on out.
FitzSimmons. While I don’t ship them romantically, they are too drift-compatible for me to not love them.
Very close runner-up? Coulson and May.
It’s long, but I don’t care, because few things in a tv show have ever hit home the way this did:
Jemma Simmons: I like to think about the first law of thermodynamics, that no energy in the universe is created and…
Jemma Simmons: That means that every bit of energy inside us, every particle will go on to be a part of something else; maybe live as a dragonfish, a microbe, maybe burn in a supernova.
And every part of us now was once a part of some other thing - a moon, a storm cloud, a mammoth…
Leo Fitz: A monkey.
Jemma Simmons: A monkey.
Thousands and thousands of other beautiful things that were just as terrified to die as we are.
We gave them new life.
A good one, I hope.
Agent Victoria Hand.
I’m still in denial.
Oooohhhh this one is really hard, because there are a few things I can think of.
And this is a bit of a weird one, but if I want to pick one moment that made me really happy, in terms of what it said about the character?
It was the moment in The Magical Place when we realize that May deliberately got Skye kicked off the Bus in order to allow her to work without being constrained by Victoria Hand and SHIELD.
It, to me, revealed so much about May’s character. It spoke to the amount that Coulson being in danger was affecting her, just how deeply she cared about him, that she was willing to lie and allow someone to go off-grid like that in order to give the best chance of finding him. It spoke to her as being not just someone who blindly followed the rules, but someone who did so because, most of the time, she believed in the rules, but sometimes other things were just more important.
It spoke to the way that they were all becoming part of a team in a very real sense, and it spoke to May beginning to put the same kind of trust in Skye that Coulson had from the start, and that was just really excellent to me.
(Failing that, ‘The Time Simmons Tried To Flirt With Sitwell And Wound Up Shooting Him Instead’)
While the entire end of that episode and much of the next one is awfully heart-wrenching, there is one character beat in T.R.A.C.K.S. that just absolutely slayed me.
You know when Skye gets shot, and Simmons finally gets back to the bus, and she goes into the supply closet and gets the medical wipes and is futilely trying to wipe the blood off her hands, and it just suddenly hits her, and she just totally breaks down?
Yeah. That one.
The Bus, hands down.
(Which reminds me, I need a moment where one of the characters, probably Skye, does their best Ms Frizzle impression and yells “TO THE BUS” and then starts cracking up while the rest of the team look really confused because they don’t catch the reference)
Why no Triplett on the AOS/Agent Carter poster, though?
My childhood nickname (well one of them) was Flying Squirrel
One of mine was ‘Mooey’, due to my then two-and-a-half-year-old sister’s initial inability to pronounce my real name.
Oooh… Last season, I would have said Thomas, because he had such an interesting character evolution… But this season they really regressed most of that, and he became a lot more one-dimensional again suddenly, so…
MARY FREAKING CRAWLEY, THANK YOU
Tough one. Robert? He’s so just… Ehhhhhfhd. He doesn’t even do enough to make me hate him, half the time, he’s just bleh.
1, 2, 3, Awwww…
Tom and Mary, probably?
This one is almost literally impossible to choose. Can I just say ‘everything Violet has said ever?’ No? Okay, then this exchange:
Robert: What a harsh world you live in.
Tom: We all live in a harsh world. But at least I know I do.
SYBIL. Oh gosh, I watched that scene with my Mum and we were both bawling our eyes out ridiculously, it was so far from okay.
At the time?
That ridiculously cheesy scene when Matthew shows up at that music thing during the war and they sing at each other.
I was a sap. I know it. I got over it.
Can I pick Sybil’s death again? Because seriously, that was the worst, it was so claustrophobic and awful
Umm… Downton Abbey? Kinda hard to pick anything else with this show.
*this is Downton, I have to change it to British spelling
HELP ME GO BACK TO COLLEGE!!
So, the economy sucks and money is tight everywhere and it’s hard but I really, really want to go back to school. Unfortunately, I can’t, because even though my mom’s pay keeps going down and my dad lost his job last fall (he has a new one, but the difference in his annual pay is literally equal to the amount I need for college). I’m working two jobs this summer and I’m not even going to touch the gap between what we need, and what we have. I need to go back for my mental health, if for no other reason. But also because all my friends are there and my boyfriend is there and so on. And for every one of you guys click that link and make an account, I get an extra entry to win a $20k scholarship, which would completely cover my tuition for this year, and give me and my parents time to save for next year. So please, please, please make an account and sponsor me. I really want to go back, and it barely requires anything from you guys, and I promise they won’t send you spam. And even if you don’t want to make an account, a boost is appreciated.
