sometimes i blog about french musketeers, and sometimes i cry over idiot dwarf kings. sometimes i even write.
mostly, though, i like to stare at tom burke's face and pretend i don't have a problem
#(okay why can’t this be #the plot of every remake tho #there have been about a thousand remakes of every old 1960s thing lately #i need remakes that interact thematically with their source canon #not just as a way to critically examine those themes #tho obvs we need more of that— christ please give me a superman that asks why we needed superman in the first place #but as a way to examine the weight of those stories #that don’t just tell a story with jim kirk in it #but that constantly have Captain Kirk in them as a sort of ghost of a narrative #a doctor who 50th anniversary that isn’t just exciting! and flashy! and cool! #but that acknowledges the incredible weight of 50 years of one continual story #like matryoshka dolls; each character and plotline and setting contains more than it appears to #even if tos!jim kirk was not perfect he must remain perfect in the nostalgic memory of the viewer #the idea of jim kirk in our minds was never the jim kirk that existed #but it is so impossibly fascinating to watch aos!jim kirk try to live up to that ideal #that it seems a shame for that ideal not to be constantly present within the story’s subconscious)(swanjolras)
“I still get the looks in the corridors sometimes. I can tell much of the crew is wondering why someone so young isn’t back at the Academy, earning his stripes. I still hear mention of ‘the kid’ and I know who they are talking about. All I can do is what I have done my whole life: prove them wrong. The captain’s faith in me gives me hope. I will continue to do everything I can to continue to earn his trust.”

Damn it man, I’m a multifaceted character, not just comic relief!
#oh god the first gif you just had to start with that scene didn’t you #he’s seconds away from certain death and his only thought is to save someone else’s life #someone he barely even knows #that is leonard mccoy in a nutshell #he is selfless in a way that goes beyond his calling as a doctor #everyone on the enterprise would give up their life in the line of duty #leonard mccoy would give up his life if it would save just one other life; even a stranger’s (tags via radiophile)

#but wow these girls would make the best best triumvirate in aos #Uhura is the level-headed absolute badass #who is professional in every sense of the word but will still bite your head off if you deserve it #carol is an absolute brainiac with a huge heart #she’s the one to become very loyal very fast #and is the patient softie of the group (but don’t get me wrong she probably has killer aim) #and gaila is the extroverted people lover #she is perfectly aware of how to get what she wants #but when she chooses people to be around she does so completely and would do anything for them #wow i just want this so much (tags via enterpriseofficial)
