Theme Your face is perfect Not over you two Tolkien Ask Home

I actually wish that “Are You Now or Have You Ever Been” hadn’t had Wes and Cordy and Gunn in at all. Their presence makes it feel like just another episode, with the flashbacks only being interesting character exposition. This must be my fifth or sixth (at least) watching of the episode and I only just got the full weight of it.

Angel was betrayed and hurt and faced with the very worst side of humanity, and that pushed him past his limits, past all the effort he’d put into being a good person, and he literally sided with a demon that hides until it has fed on human pain. The power of that metaphor for his own internal struggle (given that canon describes vampires as having a literal demon within them, one who [in Angel ‘s case] fights with the host for the right to feed…) is almost too much on it’s own. But then there’s the factor of him coming back, nearly half a century later, to face down this demon, to refuse it and burn it into ash… And to directly free someone he cares for, someone who’s been tormented that whole time, by doing so…

I always found that episode to be a great standalone but pretty much irrelevant outside of itself, and when I see the deeper meaning… God, I haven’t even touched on the significance of it as foreshadowing for his character arc that season.

THIS CROW FUCKING UNDERSTANDS WATER DISPLACEMENT. WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO BE TOLD EVERY YEAR BY A TEACHER HOW WATER DISPLACEMENT WORKS. DO THEY THINK I’M LESS INTELLIGENT THAN A FUCKING CROW? FUCKING DONE.


Crows discovered the principle of displacement in the third century BC, when the philosopher Awkimedes, upon noticing the level of his bird bath rose in proportion with the amount of his body that was submerged, reportedly exclaimed “EURECAW!” and flew through the streets of Athens shouting his discovery.

EURECAW

Tumblr will believe anything smfh. The law that’s being described is Archimedes’ Principle and Archimedes of Syracuse(the guy who discovered this) said Eureka, not Eurecaw.




Okay but really the level of intelligence displayed by an animal recognising that… It really shows why the view that corvids are probably sentient has such weight behind it.

nivydear SAID: I have an unabashed friend crush on you, and a tattoo of your wife on my arm. Drunk on this bottle of wine may not be the best way to introduce myself to people I respect so much... but hey, Amanda Palmer changed my life, and you are an amazing writer that helped me bond with both an ex-boyfriend and my best friend. And hey... bottle of wine, whoo!

Fantastic.

This film was so serious that until I hit that caption I thought those were the actual lines.

I may or may not have only half listened to most of what he said.

Do you ever hit “ask” when you didn’t mean to and just want to run so far away nobody will ever see you again because it comes off totally the wrong way?

You Westerosi are all the same. You sew some beast upon a scrap of silk, and suddenly you are all lions or dragons or eagles.
