Are you ready to be strong?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended 10 years ago on May 20, 2003.
I want this to be real.
Tumblr freaked out at first but then she realized it’s really not that bad.
This is adorable and accurate.
I think I was in love once.
Really? What was her name?
Her name was Rose.
Doctor, we all love Rose.
I love Rose because she's fantastic. She always knew just what to say and she made me better.
Oh, yes! Rose was brilliant. All soft and warm and clever and so very human.
I love River!
I love Clara!
Doctor, are you just looking at girls in the universe and saying that you love them?
I love... fez.
Do you really love fez, or are you just saying that because you saw it?
I - I love fez! I love fez.
Okay, I always find it a little odd that people consider Super Princess Peach sexist because the gimmick revolves around Princess Peach having emotion based abilities. I see people make mood swing jokes and PMS jabs whenever it’s brought up. These are people who…
So, basically, everyone needs treating for hysteria with the Vibe “Sceptor”. Except Peach. That’s what I’m taking away from this.
“I got a fan letter from a young lady. It was a suicide note.
So I called her, and I said, “Hey, this is Jimmy Doohan. Scotty, from Star Trek.” I said, “I’m doing a convention in Indianapolis. I wanna see you there.”
I saw her — boy, I’m telling you, I couldn’t believe what I saw. It was definitely suicide. Somebody had to help her, somehow. And obviously she wasn’t going to the right people.
I said to her, “I’m doing a convention two weeks from now in St. Louis.” And two weeks from then, in somewhere else, you know? She also came to New York - she was able to afford to got to these places. That went on for two or three years, maybe eighteen times. And all I did was talk positive things to her.
And then all of the sudden — nothing. I didn’t hear anything. I had no idea what had happened to her because I never really saved her address.
Eight years later, I get a letter saying, “I do want to thank you so much for what you did for me, because I just got my Master’s degree in electronic engineering.”
That’s…to me, the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.”
I’m genuinely crying right now
I’ve heard this story before, but reblogging because it’s awesome anyway.
Makes me weep and get covered in geekbumps every time - I frakking love this story and the documentary is amazing
Here’s a piece of Nathan Fillion fan art. Not prone to being a fan of anything beyond comic books, so this is a twofer! Photoshop.
So my LARP character Duke Artur Corvus, ruler of House Corvus and the Godsbay (where the game is set) got something of an awesome sending off the other day. I’ve played him for roughly two years with a a year gap in the middle (so three years since I genned him) and in that time he has risen from being an offshoot member of the House Corvus and General of the Council of Crows, to Councilman of the Coast, and then leader of the 2nd Glorious Crusade Company (that’s where he went for a year while I played someone else) before finally rising to Duke of House Corvus. He’s fought tyrants who threatened to plunder and destroy the Godsbay, as well as madmen and barbarians from across the sea. His soul was Tainted when he threw the Korth reavers back into the ocean. He has always struggled to find the righteous path and follow it, but there are no easy or right choices when you’re in charge, and Taint in the setting is exactly as bad as it sounds; there is no way to remove it and it only gets worse, but he forged on. He slew a demon that tormented his dreams, twisting them into horrific nightmare visions.
Finally it came out that Artur had a growing shadow on his soul, and the Church called for his removal and execution; he responded by explaining that he planned to hand himself over anyway once he had defeated the creature that whispered in his ear. The people saw him as a hero who had saved the Godsbay over and over, while the Church decried him as a monster and villain, but he went to them anyway, only to be told that once he crossed the border and into the custody of the Church, he would simply be executed on the side of the road, his body burnt. A friend managed to talk them down, and the offered to let him make the final pilgramage to the Arch-Basilica anonymous, stripped of his house colours to die without honour or dignity in some Inquisitors basement.
In the end he refused this. After everything he had done for the Godsbay and Cambion, he refused to let them take his last bit of pride, his honour, his colours. So he rode back to his home fief, acquired a ship, and set sail across the sea towards the Korth, to find his death elsewhere, after giving the members of the Church a (well, I like to think so) rather awesome Reason You Suck speech. It’s going to cause huge complications for the people who have taken control of the Council after he left, but there were only so many blows to his pride he could take.
I like to think Illusion by VNV Nation played as he sailed off into the sunset, never to be seen again.
