This is a personal blog of the multi-fandom and multi-shipping variety. Although you may find some RP arts and fictions. I obsess over TV shows, movies, and works of literature. I also crackship like crazy sometimes.

“perhaps you were called to something, abbie. perhaps we both were.”
Here are some awesome and empowering quotes from several very strong female celebrities.
And Kristen Stewart.
No, you know what? Fuck you.
Let me tell you about Kristen Stewart.
Let’s talk about how she’s the centerpiece of one of the most inexplicably popular misogynistic pieces of film shit and somehow gets blamed for it sucking, despite the fact that, hey, the books were actually worse. For those who were lucky enough to escape reading the actual books, her apparent lack of emotion is 100% accurate to Bella’s character, because Bella is in fact not a character but a blank white wall for fourteen-year-old girls to project themselves onto. Robert Pattinson is not the only one in the cast who hates Twilight, thank you.
Let’s talk about how she got crucified in the media for having an affair with a married man, when that man was her director. And let’s remember that she was called all manner of things for “ruining her relationship with RPattz” when she wasn’t even engaged to the dude, let alone married with kids. But oh no, she gets called a slut because she’s Kristen Stewart, she gets her career fucked because she’s Kristen Stewart, and the dude gets off scott free.
Let’s talk about how she is incredibly shy and anxious (rather, incidentally, like Chris Evans) but does film anyway, because she’s just that awesome.
Fuck your noise. She’s not the best actor in the world but she sure as hell doesn’t deserve that kind of shit.

1501 — 19th May 1536.
477 years ago on this red day, Anne Boleyn was executed on trumped up charges of adultery, treason and incest. George Boleyn, William Brereton, Mark Smeaton, Francis Weston and Henry Norris had already been executed the previous day, leaving this astounding woman to face the sword and the crowd alone. Henry had permitted Anne to be executed in the French fashion — a clean sword rather than the bloody axe, meaning there was less chance of her death being botched by an inexperienced executioner.
She faced the whole ordeal with a dignity that everybody should admire. Dressed every inch the queen, she came out onto the scaffold and addressed the crowd with these words:
“Good Christian people, I am come hither to die, for according to the law, and by the law I am judged to die, and therefore I will speak nothing against it. I am come hither to accuse no man, nor to speak anything of that, whereof I am accused and condemned to die, but I pray God save the king and send him long to reign over you, for a gentler nor a more merciful prince was there never: and to me he was ever a good, a gentle and sovereign lord. And if any person will meddle of my cause, I require them to judge the best. And thus I take my leave of the world and of you all, and I heartily desire you all to pray for me. O Lord have mercy on me, to God I commend my soul.”
Never once did she show fear as she addressed the crowds with her final, parting goodbye. She remained dignified and composed throughout and once she had finished she knelt down on the scaffold and repeated “to Jesus Christ I commend my soul; Lord Jesu receive my soul.” several times. They say the executioner was so moved by her courage that he yelled “boy, fetch my sword!” and as Anne Boleyn looked over to the executioner’s squire, the deed was done before she knew what was happening.
Ever since, Anne Boleyn has either been portrayed as the concubine or the martyr. It is only in recent years that historians such as Alison Weir, Eric Ives and Susan Bordo have attempted to search through the myths of this sensational woman’s life to find out the truth. A lot of the problem is that many things were destroyed later on concerning Henry VIII’s second wife, so primary sources are limited and may not have as much value as historians would like.
Nevertheless, it is agreed that this woman lived an astounding life and helped changed the face of England through her staunch patronage of the Protestant reformation and the one child she successfully carried to term — Queen Elizabeth I. Even now, she continues to hold a certain influence over others. She’s become a huge role model to many (including myself) and many will jump to her defence and protect her if her honour and dignity are put into question.
Why is that? In my opinion, the answer is simple: Anne Boleyn used what limited power she had in a patriarchal world to become the most powerful woman in the country. She’s a constant reminder that women are as powerful, skilful and as politically minded as any man, no matter how much they (and maybe even other women) may claim otherwise. Henry VIII never had another wife who stood up to him in the way that she did, and even though that fiery temper may have helped lead to her downfall, her temper and wit were some of the things that allowed her to captivate a king for ten long years and help transform England forever.
“She who has been the Queen of England on earth will today become a Queen in heaven.” —Thomas Cranmer at Lambeth Palace after Anne’s death.
Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.
