Dragons have been seen on the horizon and are predicted to make landfall in the USA on the 13th of December. Fans wishing to avoid this until they can find a seat to view it from should blacklist the Hobbit tag and perhaps invest in some flame retardant clothes.
Or, you know, run screaming for your lives like a reasonable person.
Okay, so it’s been a week and a half and I am still hopping mad about the Time War retcon. I know, I know. I know. I mean, it’s not keeping me up nights or anything, but every time I try to engage with fandom I just end up
So this is my attempt to just lay it all out, say my piece, make all of my totally correct and completely cogent arguments and hopefully just go back to “yeah that”ing in other people’s posts.
It’s rull long. You’ve been warned.
au where the trojan war is a party menelaus throws to win back his girlfriend who left him for some douchebag and he ropes all his friends into helping him and wacky shenanigans happen and a running gag is that odysseus doesn’t even want to be there he’s got shit to do and at the end he gets stuck in traffic on the way home(courtesy of tumblr user odysseiarex)
when i had to read Troy (aka the iliad condensed bc they don’t think eighth graders can handle it) i absolutely re-summarized it for my mother as a high school au
this is a thing that happened.
odysseus tries to text his gf
hey penny know im late im stuck in fucking traffic you would not believe how big a douche menelaus can be
shit did that go thru
oh fuck theres a cop in an eyepatch uh ill call u
penny r u mad
did you get my txt
fuck ok uh looks like im getting a ticket and hes gonna WHAT NO FUCK THIS IS MY PHONE OFFIC
let’s stop making jokes about girls and start making jokes about white boys
here i’ll start
*white boy voice* chill out man it was just a joke
#*white boy voice* what so just because i’m a white male i’m not allowed to have an opinion?
*white boy voice* look, i’m not saying it’s wrong to be gay, but, like, I wouldn’t do it
*white boy voice* haha so what’s up
You know what’s lame? Showering. No matter how many times you do it you always have to do it again. I mean it’s basically a losing battle and I’m not sure that’s the message I want to send to my kids.
You know this was most likely just a silly text post but honestly it is giving me an interesting perspective on recovery. I have to try every day. Try every day and win or lose, but every day I’m alive I’ve won. It’s not a losing battle, it’s upkeep, like showering. Just much, much harder (for me, for others, showering is part of that).
Anyway. Thanks, OP.
