I really don’t know what “I love you” means.
I think it means “don’t leave me here alone”

Thrones Thursday - Danerys and Drogo

Ariel and I have decided Thrones Thursday should be a thing because WINTER IS COMING and there are no new episodes for MONTHS.

Danerys - Ariel
Drogo - Jeremiah

(Show some love for the Khal and Khaleesi! Reblog or put up your own stuff and tag with Thrones Thursday! ^_^)

Are you sorry you tagged me? ARE YOU?!

Emibonbon tagged me to name 10 top TV shows.

There is no other qualification.

*cackles*

HERE WE GO

  1. Revenge - Top show for making me want EVERY DAMN DRESS and wonder why people do not invest in blackout curtains.
  2. Tiger & Bunny - Top show for dragging me into its abyss of a fandom and questionable life choices faster then pretty much any show EVER. <3
  3. Fullmetal Alchemist - Top show to make me go WHAT THE $&^$*%
  4. …Until I watched Game of Thrones.
  5. Crud this is a lot of numbers okay Power Rangers. Every incarnation. Because robots and explosions and pirate ships.
  6. Animaniacs because I can STILL name every President and State Capitol thanks to that show. Pretty much my entire formal education probably came from that show.
  7. …Oh wait, Gargoyles was responsible for the Shakespeare.
  8. Doctor Who - Top show for encouraging me to talk in a terrible British accent at 11 PM in the middle of a grocery store.
  9. Faulty Towers - Top show for restoring all the obscure Brit TV cred I lose from #8. Also - “MANUEL!”
  10. Invader Zim - Top show you have to watch to understand my family’s ridiculous in-jokes. RIDE THE PIG.

And TAG to lunariven, elementalsight, leaux, crinoline-gremlin, Meesh, thetadoctor, jadekatcos, aaaaaaaand…  you, you, and you. *points at random, but IT WAS PROBABLY YOU! Get to it!*

And then in the future, everything changes. He’s been through it all, of course-watched humanity rediscover the heavens above them, watched them begin to wonder what’s out there. He cheered with the rest of the world when they landed on the moon, cheered as if he’d found Isla de la Muerta all over again, because there was something new. New treasure, a new horizon. But then they stop going, stop exploring, and he goes back to riding tankers across the rising seas. So he’s surprised when one day he wakes up from a night with his bottle of rum (his truest companion), and hears that there’s colonies on Mars now, and they need ships to supply them. He spends the next decade crafting new identities, learning all he can to qualify for the job, and after several tries (and even more faked deaths-this immortality thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in the age of the inerasable digital self) he gets it. The ships go nearly constantly now, the needs of the terraforming project creating an unbroken line of vessels from Mars to Earth and back again. “Show me that horizon,” he whispers to himself, his personal prayer of thanksgiving, each time they leave orbit, because the worlds, the stars are in motion and it’s never the same, with nearly three years for a round trip the ports are always different, even if they keep the old names. And finally one trip something goes wrong with the reactor, they’re too low on power and have to deploy the backups, and Jack (Lucky Jack, they call him, for he survives too many things he shouldn’t but science has yet to accept that maybe some things weren’t old wives’ tales after all) goes out for the spacewalk to bring up the solar panels. And as they rise, geometric patterns black against the sun’s glare, he’s struck by a powerful sense of déjà vu, because it’s all here-wind and sails, a ship beneath his feet and stars above his head, horizon in all directions. He wonders, for a moment, if the reason he’s still here is because the universe wanted a witness, to mourn the end of one age of exploration, and rejoice in the birth of the next.

Thank you for writing this. It made me cry, but oh I am so relieved to see the yearning for the stars.

La Jaguarina: Queen of the Sword (1859 or 1864-?)

rejectedprincesses:

image

In April 1896, hardened military veteran US Sergeant Charles Walsh, in front of a crowd of 4,000 onlookers, turned tail and ran. Mere minutes earlier, during a round of equestrian fencing, he’d been hit so hard he’d been nearly knocked off his horse – so hard that his opponent’s sword was permanently bent backwards in a U shape. In response, Walsh did the honorable thing: jumped from his horse, claimed that the judge was cheating, and fled the scene, to the jeers of the massive crowd.

His opponent? A woman known as La Jaguarina, Queen of Swords – an undefeated sword master who later retired only because she ran out of people to fight. Had she born 25 years later, according to the US Fencing Fall of Fame, she might be recognized as “the world’s first great woman fencer.” This week we tell the tale of this largely-forgotten heroine.

Brian was amazing, handling the heat of this parking garage like a pro despite the 100% humidity and his spandex suit. I am incredibly pleased at how this shoot came out.

Finally, slowly, getting my photo backlog tackled.

*fans self* Pheeeeeeeew, this is AWESOME!
