Consolation of the Imaginary
is not imaginary consolation

So you were never a saint
And I’ve loved in shades of wrong

#policeparents #sharon raydor #andy flynn #major crimes #my ship is a majestic dinghy


I actually can’t cope with this


when people who can’t sing never stop singing


#tone deaf #with the headphones in #and no fucks given #*Please Stop*




do you think obama attends high school reuinions and is like “oh hey jimmy. remember when you would shove me into the lockers in the 10th grade? yeah well guess what. fuck you im the president”

the truth is out obama

the characters, the dialogue, the family dynamics an small town setting make this show so unique and it’s just so heartfelt. gilmore girls is an instant pick me up show, and i will never get tired of rewatching any episode of it. 


i dont understand why some people dont like this show

"Do not discourage children from reading because you feel they are reading the wrong thing. Fiction you do not like is a route to other books you may prefer. And not everyone has the same taste as you."

It’s still true. (And I said a lot of other sensible things in the essay it links to.)

The Orphan Black Cast on Tatiana Maslany
↳ Tatiana’s dedication, strength, spunk, friendliness and professionalism have infused the entire crew with a love for the show and a standard of working. She knows everyone’s names, says hello to everyone regardless of where they are on the so-called totem pole, is always kind regardless of how exhausted she is…and has garnered so much respect from everyone. It’s really special, and she is really special. – Kathryn Alexandre



I love this quote.

They’ve gone in reverse. She was legitimately intrigued by/attracted to him, in the very beginning, but she didn’t like him at all. He was a jackass. He drove her nuts, invaded her space, mocked the living and the dead with bad jokes and puns, made her job more difficult overall. His only redeeming feature (besides writing books she enjoys) was his help with key elements of cases. It was barely enough for her to set aside her irritation and keep him around.

Slowly, without her realizing it, as the jackass persona slipped away, these things that drove her crazy… she got used to them. She learned to put up with his invasions of her space, as long as he knew where the line was drawn on things like her mother’s case. Those stupid jokes, the puns, the games, the annoying childlike behaviours, they just became quirks. His presence at her job became more equal, he learned, stopped being as big of an annoyance and she started accepting him as a real force, benefiting from his strengths and compensating for his weaknesses as he did for her.

And then, she was more than used to it. She missed him when he wasn’t hanging over her shoulder over a file, wasn’t standing too close at the murder board, didn’t presume on their friendship to bring her a coffee or make her eat breakfast. She relied on his ability to pull her back up even when she pulls away, even when it’s invasive, because he’s the only one she trusts to invade her personal space and her mind like that and still see something worth loving there. She grew to love those dumb jokes and the alien theories and the bad puns - they were more than quirks, they were endearing, all part of the package. She could no longer imagine her job without him, without her partner, best friend, eventually lover.

She never thought, when he first barged his way into her precinct and her zero-degree world, that she could tolerate - let alone fall in love with - someone whose traits she found so completely repelling at first, whose character was so contradictory to everything she thought she wanted.

But as the old song says, you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.

In all her previous relationships, the things that initially attracted her to the person ended up being the things that drove her crazy, because what she was attracted to wasn’t really what she needed. With Castle, it was the very things that drove her crazy in the beginning that ended up being what she needed to balance her, to make her life whole, thus the things that were the most attractive in the end.
