"As for the fate of Hope Pym’s mother, Janet Van Dyne — aka the original the Wasp — actor Michael Douglas revealed that she is indeed in the movie but dies in some sort of accident."

lol bye (via vivacosima)

WHY

WOULD YOU KILL

JAN

WHY WOULD YOU EVEN MAKE ANY MOVIES THAT WERE NOT 1000% ABOUT JANET VAN DYNE BEING A SMOKY MOTHERFUCKER AND DUMPING HANK PYM’S ASS

WHER EIS THE ACCIDENT ATHAT KILLS MICHAEL DOUGLAS?

WHY WOULD 

YOU MAKE AN ANT MAN MOVIE

WHEN THERE COULD BE A JAN MOVIE

YOU COULD HAVE HAD IT ALL

#i was just running the numbers  #as i do  #obsessively  #and felt inspired to make a photoset  #of my most read paiirings  #femslash  #if people would WRITE MORE i would READ MORE of a lot of these 

I guess the “Emma Approved” webseries got up to the “Badly done, Emma” bit and honestly I may have to Tumblr Savior it because it’s starting to stress me out seeing my name in that context so many times a day on my dash

#THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

[echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wear a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor the the Time War but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to write his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

Wow, that just summed up my feelings on where Doctor Who has gone better than anything else I’ve read.

The book I’m reading now (on the subject of weird thematic resonances) also draws not a little from Peter Pan, which given I saw Finding Neverland and then watched Hook last night, feels a bit resonant itself

#accidental themes 

Somehow basically every book I’ve read for my YA lit class in the past 2-3 weeks has been about England + world wars and honestly they’ve all been brilliant but I’m left sitting back and asking myself HOW DID THIS HAPPEN
