Foxglove Summer Chapter 1 (at least part of)




For everyone who hasn’t already seen it!

(also, for all the people who read the transcript of the lovely philomytha or listened to the interview, there’s two paragraphs more on the blog version, so you might want to check it out)

no seriously those two dorks tried to get Varvara drunk





I mean okay I see how Peter would be naive enough to try but Nightingale son I am disappoint

I am always imagining Nightingale sitting somewhere in the corner while Varvara and Peter drink those two vodka bottles (someone has to keep an eye on them after all), just quietly shaking his head and trying to read while his apprentice gets terribly drunk.

The Little Mermaid TV Series: Gabriella

Remember when Disney had a cute, disabled, poc mermaid?

When i was younger, one of my best friends was a deaf guyanese girl, and her fave princess was Ariel, mainly bc she related to her living without a voice (and her love of swimming)

When this episode aired, she cried and squawked and made sounds that were almost understandable… She saw herself as a mermaid, on tv, with her favourite character of all time

Representation matters, always, no matter what

My roommate and I are really sick and we look like shit, but we were hungry so we ordered pizza.
But we didn’t want anyone to see us, so we asked them over the phone if we can leave the money on the door and they can just drop off the pizza.

The guy said sure.

So we decided to leave a nice little note


and we hung it above the door bell. I hope they like it!




pizza cares

Pizza understands

pizza spelt its own name wrong

“You can’t call them black magicians,” I said.
“You realize that we’re using black in its metaphorical sense here,” said Nightingale.
“It doesn’t matter,” I said. “Words change what they mean, don’t they? Some people would call me a black magician.”
“You’re not a magician,” he said. “You’re barely even an apprentice.”
“You’re changing the subject,” I said.
“What should we call them?” he asked patiently.
“Ethically challenged magical practitioners,” I said.

Peter Grant from Moon over Soho, written by Ben Aaronovitch

It’s this kind of witty dialgoue that makes the Rivers of London series brilliant. I adore that this series really captures the multi-racial aspect of London.
