So I think I really like NCIS: New Orleans. I mean, I’m a fan of Scott Bakula, CCH Pounder, and Lucas Black anyway, so it’s not unexpected, but I do think it’s my new favorite show. (As in, favorite show that is new this year.)

Brody and LaSalle have a Kensi and Deeks vibe going on, but without the UST. So far I just see them as really good buddies.

As for Pride… Okay, it’s Scott Bakula, I love the guy, but he can’t really do a Cajun accent. I don’t know if he’s become better over the episodes or I’m just getting used to it, but it doesn’t seem as painful as it was. That said, I like Pride.

Sebastian, eh, I like him well enough. He’ll grow on me. I didn’t like Nell at first on NCIS:LA, but now I do, and Eric’s one of my favorite characters.

Loretta, well, it’s CCH Pounder, of course I like her. <3

And now we have the addition of the character Patton. I googled the actor and sure enough, he is in a wheelchair. (I’m not a fan of abled-bodied actors playing disabled characters when there are plenty of disabled actors available.) He’s a good addition to the team, and I hope he sticks around.

So what do all of you think? Is NCIS:NO a hit or a miss for you?


Well, Nelson’s dead and Chalky’s probably dead, and there goes two of the last reasons I bothered watching Boardwalk Empire. Actually we’re down to Mickey, he’s about the only reason I watch. IDGAF about anyone else. I want him to outlive everyone of them, though if it goes the historical route we know that doesn’t happen. (Meyer outlives everyone. The guy that Mickey is based on is murdered in 1931.)

Maybe I’ll just skip the rest of this season and read what happens. No point in watching something IDGAF about, I got better things to do.


It is my headcanon that Hermione Granger grew up to become as fantastic and as amazing as Emma Watson. It doesn’t matter if you believe the canon, have your own fanon, or whoever you ship her with if anyone, there is no way she didn’t because the Wizarding World’s Emma Watson.

I know I’m not the first or even the latest to think of this. I just wouldn’t be surprised if JK Rowling said, “Yes, this is what happened.”


I honestly think the club would more or less let it go with Tig and Venus because, well, considering Tig… this is probably the most normal relationship he’s ever had. I mean, better Venus than dead bodies, right?

Plus they know Tig is ridiculously loyal and badass and they need everyone at this point, so I figure they’ll just ignore it. Unrealistic? Yeah, but it’s not like this show goes for frickin’ realism.

And yes, I know this will end badly. Everything on this show ends badly, because Kurt Sutter refuses to believe in the existence of happiness.

Truth is I don’t give a shit about this show any more, but I figure I’ve come this far I might as well see it to the end. I’m going to take what little joy I can out of it, and if it’s Tig and Rat snarking at each other or Tig and Venus hooking up, so be it. I don’t care if it’s fanfic-ish or dumb, it’s what gets me through the episodes.

And look, the Oedipus complex comes back with Gemma and Jax. DIdn’t miss that.


I’m ignoring all the (really) stupid murder and mayhem on SoA and just focusing on the fact that Tig and Venus are adorable.

And I realized I wouldn’t mind Sheriff Jerry and Chibs if it wasn’t for the fact that she’s just screwing him over to get to the club.

I wanted to mess around with Elsa’s color scheme. I wanted to see her as a brunette and boom the curiosity gave birth to this ROTG AU alksjd


I just discovered this, and yes. This is me. I have hypothyroidism and anxiety, and this is my new explanation to others about what it’s like and what I can and cannot do. I used to use the video game metaphor, where your character only has so much energy, say 10/10, and every action costs 1 energy at least. Once you’re out, you’re out for at least 24 hours. There’s no potions or quick fixes (other than a crap ton of caffeine, but then you feel worse later, and forget about sleeping), and you have to wait.

This is a better explanation for those that aren’t into video games or need a physical representation.


literallyimbalanced:

it’s so frustrating. I’ve been gaining a stupid amount of weight too rapidly. No matter what I do I continue to gain. I went to the doctors and they told me it’s because my thyroid is having a hard time controlling my metabolism, cool! And it’s hard at home because when I mention my thyroid to my…

I don’t know your situation, but I ended up needing surgery to remove half of my thyroid when I was 16. In my case I went from hyperthyroidism to hypothyroidism (too much to too little), and at first I hated it. I hated it so much, andI still grumble about it to be frank. I don’t regret it, though, and I’d rather take a small pill every day for the rest of my life than deal with symptoms so out of whack that you feel like an emotional and physical ping-pong ball.

It may take a while to get your dosage right, and as you get older, it’s going to get larger. That’s just a part of aging with this. Once you get it set, though? You’ll feel a lot better and your weight will stabilize.

So I can’t tell you what to do and I wouldn’t want to, but this was my experience with it. A lot of people have to deal with this, so there’s lots of stories out there that may help you decide what to do. Talk over the options with your doctor. Best of luck to you, whatever you decide.


Wow, I just got reblogged a bunch of times and gained some new followers. *waves* Hi! How are you? Thanks for all the likes and reblogs!


Doctor Who Question

When the Doctor regenerates, does his DNA and fingerprints change as well?

"Time Heist" made me wonder if the Doctor’s ever had his fingerprints and DNA recorded and if it would even matter if he did, say, get captured and stand trial and they could connect all sorts of things to him via DNA or fingerprints. Or whatever the galactic equivalent would be in the show.
