I’m currently reading “The Poisonwood Bible”, and I’ve face-claimed the protagonist-wife as Mary McDonnell. Now I can’t stop thinking about how it would make a perfect cinematography-centric movie with Mary in the lead. Imagine Mary’s perfection with the glorious Congo as a backdrop.

Actually, for every book I read that has a lead female in it, I always face-claim them with Mary, transforming her based on the book’s description (age-wise, mostly, so sometimes there’s baby!Mary). But most of the time, if the book says “blonde” or “ordinary-looking”, I automatically strike that out and just—“NO. MARY.”

Legit do the same thing :)

SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.
Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW. 
I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.


^^^ Yes to all of this.

Who is the best sci-fi character of all time? Darth Vader? Captain Kirk? Jean-Luc Picard?

gallifreyanathearts:

And here we go again!

This is bullshit. Where’s Laura Roslin? Belanna Torres? Way to hold a contest where 85% of the entries are men and some of the greatest female sci-fi characters are not represented. I’m tired of misogyny. Really and truly frakkin over it.

empressberenene:

Oh, God. So I’m working my way through S2 of BSG and becoming increasingly overwhelmed with Laura Roslin feels, ugh. 

It strikes me that she’s (appropriately) a very human character because she’s characterised by contradiction: toughness and vulnerability, ruthlessness and compassion, idealism and pragmatism. 

There’s also this understated regality to her which I find so, so attractive. It doesn’t matter if she’s airlocking cylons, or backstabbing politicians, or breaking down crying - she’s always dignified. 

Her complexity is just such a massive ‘fuck you’ to those writers who create Strong Female Characters™ and call it “feminism”. 

^^^ ALL OF THIS. She is so complex that you can’t just call her one thing…like an angel or tryant or what not, because she is so much more!

[Battlestar Galactica] was the best usage of television I’ve ever seen. The casting of the program was superb and the crew was like the family to humankind… and like a family to each other. We are probably closer now than when we did our show. The unity we experienced is immeasurable. Jamie Bamber and his wife had three children on that show and I’m the godfather to one of James Callis’s children. We maintain reunions throughout the year – sometimes at Michael’s house, Tricia’s or Katee’s… or Mary’s house. The best cast… or best crew a captain could ever hope to command.

So do these two share a wardrobe or…


Actually it doesn’t look like the same dress. Close tho. But the sleeves on Mary’s dress are longer and hang a little off her shoulder, the neckline is higher, and the dress is longer, almost falling to her knee. Might be from the same designer possibly :)
