EXCUSE ME BUT THIS RING. NO ONE NOTICED IT?????
Actually I’ve seen people mention it since the first episode.
It’s Capaldi’s wedding ring. He never takes it off, even when acting.
To add to the story, he refuses to take it off because when his acting career was struggling, his wife never gave up on him. When he landed his first major gig, he decided to not take it off, to represent he was there because of his wife’s support.
This is the sweetest and best thing I’ve eve heard about any behind-the-scenes ever
Remember when he’s told the tradition is to give that chocolate box to someone “you love" and he immediately jumped off the stage and ran to his wife in Seoul without even a second thought?
this is the reason i love and RESPECT him this much… just… *sniffs*
They can be loyal
or they can be firce
How can you not love dragons?
They are like huge cats
Missed the best one…
This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.
A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!
Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.
All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.
Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!
Let me tell to you a thing.
This is Lenore. I first saw her in a little cage at the Petco I frequent (I used to take my parents’ dog in for puppy play time), and she looked like the grouchiest, old, crotchety cat in the world, and I fell instantly in love. She was cranky, she was anti-social, hanging out at the back of her cage. Her fur was matted because she wouldn’t let the groomers near her.
She was perfect.
But I didn’t have a place for her. I wasn’t living in my own space yet, and where I was, I wasn’t allowed cats. So I pressed my face to the bars of her cage and I promised that if no one had adopted her by the time I’d bought a house, I would come back for her.
I visited her every week for over six months while I looked for a house. At one point, they had to just shave her entire rear-end because the mats or fur were so bad. They told me she clawed the heck outta the groomer that did it, screamed the entire time, and spent the next two days growling at anyone that came near the cage.
A couple of weeks later, I closed on my house. I went back and I got an employee, and I said: “That one. I need that cat.”
They got the paperwork and the lady who ran the rescue that was bringing the cats in told me that Lenore (at the time, Lila) was 8 years old, had been owned by an elderly lady who had died, and brought in to a different rescue, who’d had her for six months on top of the time I’d been seeing her at Petco.
This kitty had been living in a 3x3’ cube for over a YEAR because she was older and “less adoptable.”
I signed the paperwork, put her in a cat carrier, and drove her to my new home. I had pretty much nothing; a bed, an old couch, a couple of bookcases, and a tank of mice I called “Cat TV”. I let her out of the carrier and onto my bed, and I told her “I told you I would come back for you when I had a place. It’s not much, but it’s yours too now.”
Lenore spent the next three days straight purring non-stop. She followed me around the house purring. Sat next to me purring. Slept next to me purring. Leaning into every touch, purring, purring, always purring. She still purrs if you so much as think about petting her. She’s amazing, and I love her.
So, you know, if you’re thinking about adopting, and you see a beast that others consider “less adoptable,” think about Lenore.
Anonymous said: I love this page, but the MLP one makes me uncomfortable. I'd be uncomfortable even if it was a thin girl... Because first off, sexualizing MLP freaks me out and also, I take my kids to cons. I don't want my son staring at any girl in a see through bathing suit. If it were done just for the risqué cosplay section then I wouldn't care, but it isn't marked that way, so yeah. I really wish girls (all girls) would take into consideration the minors that are there, did it have to be see through?
Well, here we go.
I’m really questioning whether you’d be similarly uncomfortable with a thin girl wearing that cosplay. The very phrase, “I’d be uncomfortable even if it were a thin girl” reeks of your trying to justify a prejudiced reaction by insisting you’d react the same way in any circumstance.
If you’re worried about the sexualization of MLP? You’d do a lot better to go appeal to the brony culture that has literally made the fandom unsafe for young girls for whom the show was originally made. Go talk to the guy who tried to marry Twilight Sparkle or the folks who make outright pony porn. Not a young woman wearing something you think is too see-through. And to top it off? It’s barely see-through at all. It has a stripe of semi-transparent fabric down the middle and the only thing you can see is her navel and a bit of her bra. Give me a fucking break.
But these two things are not even my main concern.
My main concern is your asking women to police what they wear at conventions in front of your son. You mention only girls: “I wish girls (all girls) would take into consideration the minors that are there.” From your obsessive focus on womens’ clothing at conventions, I doubt you’d fuss if you saw a shirtless guy walking around, but the minute a girl wears a bikini or has a transparent stripe down her bathing suit, you throw a fit.
Your fuss about your son seeing a woman that shows skin actually makes me uncomfortable, because you’re already implicitly teaching your son that a woman should cover up. You’re already teaching him that showing skin, for women, is inherently inappropriate and makes them undeserving of respect. You’re teaching him to make women sexual objects based on what they wear.
Ever wonder why sexism is so damn prevalent or why violence against women is so common? This is why. People like you who, teaching your son that a woman is not deserving of respect based on what they wear. How about you teach your son not to objectify women, no matter what they’re wearing? Talk to your son about about the objectification of women, teach him that that woman is not doing anything inappropriate, that she is deserving of his respect no matter what she’s wearing, whether she’s covered from head-to-toe, or in the tiniest bikini she could find.
If you keep teaching your son these things, you’re going to wind up with a little misogynist on your hands. That woman’s transparent costume is not nearly as insidious as what you’re teaching your son. These kinds of behaviors and teachings lead to violence. If you want your son to internalize violence and misogyny, go ahead and keep teaching him this shit. If not, teach your damn son about respect and consent instead of whining to me about an MLP cosplayer.
And the risque cosplay section? Again, you must be new. Because I’ve never heard of a risque cosplay section at a con, or even on this site. I’m going to need you to try harder before you come and fuck with me with this shit again.
