“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 hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I hate circles I just really hate circles guys…
This also vaguely looks like the Captain Albert Alexander valentine I did way back when…
No CJ NO! You did not just cause me to look up the Red Fork Empire and realize that they are an actual group. Like I’ve met the Emperor before, but I DID NOT KNOW HIS EMPIRE WAS AN ACTUAL THING…
MUST! RESIST! URGE! TO! PETITION! FOR! CITIZENSHIP!
That’d be silly. If there was no empire, how could there be an Emperor?
Of course there is an empire. I myself am a citizen. Armband and everything. The empire is everywhere all at once. And our benevolent emperor loves us all. Within reason.
i hate when a teacher is genuinely funny and i’m the only one in the entire classroom that laughs at their jokes since everybody i go to school with are distasteful heathens
9 times out of 10 i was the only one who laughed. a few times i got a “she knows what i’m talking about. you get an a for the day.”
No but this is the scene my heart truly broke for Naomi. I was so angry at her for what she did to Cas and the things she made him do. But in this conversation she has with Cas and Dean you realize she had good intentions. She’s a lot like Cas in that way. She wanted what was best for heaven and was blinded by that goal that any potential collateral just wasn’t on her mind. She was willing to reprogram each and every angel just to keep the peace upstairs. But here she is realizing what she did was wrong. And she’s afraid. She’s afraid of what Metatron will do and how many angels will suffer for it. She’s looking out for them, Cas included. Right now she’s giving him a choice. She’s begging him, not controlling him, please don’t do this. Just trust me this one time. She’s willing to forgive Cas for all that he did. Becoming a new God, killing angels, letting the leviathans loose. She’s ready to let all that slide to save her home. And she’s willing to forgive him. After knowing her for such a short time, Naomi proves to be one of the greatest characters to come out of Supernatural.
DID YOU REALLY HAVE TO DO THAT TO ME
I’m posting this for anyone who thinks their art is bad, and thinks that they’ll never be as good as some of those artists they admire. The image on the right is the first picture I did of K2. I drew it 6 years ago, and I was proud of it. The picture on the left is one I did today.
You don’t need to be an artist to see the improvement. With the help of friends showing me different techniques, accepting critique of my art, and just practicing and drawing as much as possible, I got to where I am today. For anyone who thinks they “can’t draw,” just remember that if you keep at it, you will improve.
Supernatural Meme - Two Quotes (2/2)
↳ “You know why God cast me down? Because I loved him. More than anything. And then God created… You. The little… hairless apes. And then he asked all of us to bow down before you—to love you, more than him. And I said, “Father, I can’t.” I said, “These human beings are flawed, murderous.” And for that, God had Michael cast me into hell. Now, tell me, does the punishment fit the crime?”
Clap clap for Jared in this scene, I will never get over this…just amazing!
Mark Pellegrino is a fantastic Lucifer, no question. But for me, there is no other Lucifer but Jared Padalecki’s. These GIFs alone are giving me the creeps.
To me, Jared was the one who set the “Lucifer might actually be female all along” mindset. The way he softens his face, the way he uses language, the way he likes things cleaner and prettier and appreciates the world for beauty, while still having a certain underlaying rage that seeths and boils more than overtly strikes and lashes.
No, I’m not saying all women and no men are like that. But they are all typically feminine traits. And that’s the piece I think people are missing about this scene when they say it’s over or under acted. When they say it feels off.
Jared is playing a woman here. A woman stuck in a man’s body.
And that’s the difference, to me, in Mark and Jared’s Lucifer’s. I imagine that Mark is playing a fourteen/fifteen year old girl. But this is five years later. Five hard years for Lucifer, too, where (s)he had to grow far faster than expected. Where (s)he was expected to be the (mother)father of a race, and the last of (her) kind aside from one man (and I definitely think Castiel is male) who rejects everything about Lucifer. Lucifer just wants to be the good child to an absentee father… But never got to grow in the cage.
Mark is playing a wonderfully bratty but loving teenage girl. Jared is playing a woman, a lost older sister, a lonely daughter, a tired adopted mother who hates her children and is now seeing the one person who could care- if only because she happens to be trapped inside of his brother, his child.
If you think this scene is acted wrong, it’s because you’re watching a man playing a man. He isn’t. This is a woman.
I searched for a good five minutes to find a reaction GIF appropriate to the amount of mind blowage that just occured. No dice.
WOW. Never thought of it like that before, but yessss….
Oh my god.
BOTH TIMES Lucifer appeals to his vessels, he’s a woman. A pretty convincing woman, I might add.
If I could be in love with a post, this would be that post. Just. All my jumbled, incoherent thoughts spelled out so neatly. I love this. Probably my number one headcanon.
