the a in lgbtqa should stand for allies, they deserve the recognition for defeating the axis powers and winning world war 2
Hey, thanks for the message! I moved cross-country when I started at Dalhousie, all the way from Vancouver (!) and I understand that it can be scary to consider doing this. For me, however, this was absolutely the right choice. I think Dal is a great school, and I know that other people (aka the Maclean’s report) rate Dal as one of the top ten schools in the country. But, here’s the thing. You’re going to get a fine quality education at most if not all of the well known universities in Canada. So ask yourself where you will be happy living. Will you be happy living in Halifax? It’s a small city, but depending on where you’re from, it could seem exceptionally big or small. This makes a difference. To answer your question, though, I definitely enjoy Dal and I think it’s worth it to move cross-country for it, because I have had a pretty great time doing it. Let me know if there’s anything else you want to know about the school or the city?
So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book.
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness.
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him.
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.
Teen Wolf S3 + “It’s okay.”
It’s in his DNA
And he just takes my breath away

“When I was auditioning for Joffrey. I only had one audition, and the producers and writers were laughing at my performance because I was being so snotty and arrogant. They found it comical. I thought that was good.” —Jack Gleeson
“Jack is gorgeous – a wonderfully sensitive, quiet, intelligent scholar. He’s the antithesis of that character.” —Michelle Fairley
"Jack, who plays Joffrey is such a lovely fellow." --Ian McElhinney
“He’s this really contemplative, erudite, really gorgeous, generous human being, and he plays Joffrey so well. It’s very disturbing.” —Natalie Dormer
"Jack Gleeson, who plays Joffrey is an absolute sweetheart in real life, you know what I mean. He’s such a brilliant actor. I think he’s a genius." —Mark Addy
“He’s the most polite, lovely, intelligent person in the whole cast! He’s just so humble and everyone loves him. There’s nothing anyone can say bad about Jack. He literally just turns it on. As soon as they go, “Action!” he goes from lovely Jack to the most sadistic, horrible creep on television.” —Sophie Turner
“Jack Gleeson is really a very nice young man, charming and friendly.” —George R.R. Martin
"I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! I should be his bodyguard." —Sophie Turner
"Jack is actually a very sweet boy and very bright, very intelligent young man with a natural talent." —Charles Dance
"Jack! He’s the coolest. He smokes a pipe, people. Talk about great acting for somebody who’s so different from the part he plays. I love that guy." —Peter Dinklage
I love how he responds to Derek never having all that many lines by acting the fuck out of everything with just his face. U lil shit.
#i’m reblogging this again just for that comment#because derek wouldn’t be the same without tyler#tyler gives him so much life#and for casual viewers that don’t know nothing about tyler it might seem completely normal that he can do this#but once you do meet him#you can’t stop asking yourself how such an angel that is always smiling#can even pull this off#it amazes me every time#tyler hoechlin loves his character so so sooo much#and he studies him to detail#jeff might have given derek more story and depth since s1#but it was tyler that made derek who he is now#and i’m so fucking glad he did (via sinyhale)
#i find that so funny in a weird way #cause people never mention tyler among the best actors of the show #and usually i would agree #i really don’t like his other movies and i’m meh about most of his performances #which is funny cause he can be much more of a normal person there and be more like himself #and theoretically that should come easier to him #but instead this ball of sunshine #just plays the shit out of derek #idek how manages to look so grumpy but damn he knows how to use his face actually #in fact i think that’s his biggest strength #cause he doesn’t always 100% nail the delivery of his lines #and derek barely has lines so as much as that pains me cause i wanna see derek talk more #it actually plays into his hands and he’s really good at conveying emotions with his face (read:eyebrows) #and he makes derek so nuanced just with his face and his body language it makes me wanna cry #so thank you tyler for doing an a+ job (dylanships)
Don’t you just love it when a friend posts on facebook about violence against LGBT people, and the comments turn into a debate over bible quotes
haha my favourite
just want to raise a glass for oberyn for being one of the few characters who is actually disgusted and enraged by rape and the rape culture of westeros while being non-white, non-het, and not a huge piece of crap towards bastards and non-noble ppl
