Steven Moffat is happy.
He’s happy Sherlock Holmes isn’t asexual, because there’s “no fun in that.” Of course Sherlock’s not gay, either, because “he wouldn’t be living with a man if he thought men were interesting.” And although John and Sherlock are “definitely a love story,” Moffat doesn’t see why it should be “weirdly sexualized.” Moffat is happy he can write only the most interesting, innovative, entertaining relationships into his shows—straight ones.
He’s happy that while women may fuss about equal treatment, deep down all they want is to “be the one.” The one to “melt that glacier,” the one who “knows what men like,” the one who has a “a crush on the Doctor.” He’s happy because he knows this secret about women.
He’s happy because sometimes he knows his characters so well it’s like they’re speaking for him. Like when Sherlock asks Mrs. Hudson, in the final episode of season 3, “What exactly is the point of you?” Or when Charles Magnusson says in the episode’s opening scene, “The whole world is wet for me.” Steven Moffat is happy the whole world is wet for him, ready and eager for his stories. Steven Moffat knows he’s the best ride we’ll ever have.
Steven Moffat is happy because when he goes to Comic-Con, he is a god, and it’s good to be in a place where he can truly feel like an inspiration to all those other younger, marginalized geeks—where he can stand as the living embodiment that if you work hard and sleep with a lot of people, you too might one day be able to write your “red-blooded male” fantasy of a hot redhead flirting with herself.
CAIRN // an instrumental compendium of movie soundtracks dedicated to the rolling hills of scotland, and for the unlikely adventurers; the dragon riders and sword bucklers, or the tea-drinking sitting-down types who spend most of their time immersing themselves in great stories and share the most incredible journeys with dodgy wizards, young roman officers, and lanky dragon-loving vikings

Meryl Streep || Academy Awards Wins/NominationsThere are some days when I myself think I’m overrated … but not today.
Five things to remember when a horrid day is beating you into the ground:
- Trees grow outwards, rings upon rings. Allow yourself to spread that quietly. One day you’ll look back and be astonished by how far you’ve come.
- We power our lives with the remains of dinosaurs. People will remind you that the dinosaurs are dead but I think it’s pretty cool that there’s enough life in them to give you a shower hot enough to burn.
- You’ll have a lot of chances to start again. It’s okay to never take them.
- Some scientists figured out how to play god with genes and out of all the endless possibilities available to them they decided to make rabbits glow in the dark.
- You are stars and sea and your heritage stretches back to the very first life form. Never believe that you are nothing.

↳ Hierarchy of Angels:01. Seraphim: a type of celestial or heavenly beings in the Abrahamic religions. Literally “burning ones”, the word seraph is normally a synonym for serpents when used in the Hebrew Bible. They are the highest angelic class and serve as the caretakers of God’s throne and continuously shout praises: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!” According to Isaiah 6:2, the Seraphim have six wings: “with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew”.
girls helping evil: the girl who used to be your friend
used to be one of the rotten ones and i liked you for that
now you’re all gone, got your make up on
and you’re not coming back
-anthem for a seventeen year old girl, broken social scene
(she used to be your friend, until she chose demons and you chose humanity. the demons who captured you drag you to her now, their queen and leader. they throw you on the floor in front of her, and when you look up at her, you see countless nights spent on the phone, days when you couldn’t stop laughing for nothing. you feel the pit that arrived in your stomach when she started pulling away.
when you think of your fight now, when you both had power the way only best friends have power, you feel regret. you don’t know if it’s regret that you fought at all, or regret that you didn’t make her cry.
she stares at you now, and you know neither of you are sure what choice she will make, to spare you or kill you.)
