My mother says that fanfiction doesn’t count as reading because “it isn’t nearly as good as the stuff that’s published. You’re not going to find something online that will win a Booker Prize.”
Please reblog if you count fan fiction as reading, or if the fanfiction you’ve read is equally as good as published novels. I want to see the figures.

#the moment I knew I had to be indiana jones

This was actually Harrison Ford improvising. There was supposed to be a long complicated battle where he used the whip to disarm the guy, but Harrison had dysentery and it was hot and he said “Hey Steven can I just shoot him?” and Spielberg liked it so much it went in the movie.

Dysentery never looks so delicious

That guy who he shot spent months training with the sword

Ford was literally on the verge of dying during this part of the production.

First rule of the Doctor Jones fandom ALWAYS reblog this gifset when it comes on your dashboard.



I would die and do the dishes


" I want to set the record straight. I changed my name not because I was trying to go away from my Chinese heritage by any means at all. It was really a strategic move on my part because I didn’t want people to think of me as just – yes I am a Chinese-American woman but I’m not just a Chinese-American. So, my dad’s fist name is Bennet so I took his first name and then it kind of gives the studios and the people casting like a clean slate on who I was or, “I’m Chloe” I’m not Asian Chloe. I’m not Hispanic Chloe, I’m not Italian Chloe – I’m just Chloe.



"One of the things that you argue about in a writing room… there’s the notion that you can never put your two leads together.  And if you put your two leads together, the romance dies.  Well, we put them together – we may have broken them up, but we put them together, and it’s fairly apparent in most of season four that they’re together – and I don’t think it hurts the show at all.  In fact, I think it makes the show more interesting."   - Ben Browder

Claudia Black extended this even so far as John and Aeryn’s initial meeting—the meeting that John lovingly refers to as “boy meets girl, girl kicks boy’s ass”—saying that the reason Aeryn reacts so violently to him is because it was actually love at first sight. The problem is, for Aeryn Sun, it could only be identified as a foreign emotion that resulted in confusion, so she believed her best course of action was to eliminate it… by eliminating the target responsible for eliciting the emotion.  ~ from ‘Farscape Told Science Fictions Greatest Love Story’ Tor.com

You know, the older I get, I just don’t know. But, there is absolutely that part of me that watches action shows and goes, ‘I can still do that. I can still roll with that. I stay in shape. I keep it together. I stay strong.’ So yes, I would love to do that, as my one last hurrah.  That would absolutely be great, and I’m sure my fans would love that. I would love to take off the stilettos and put the boots back on. Strap something to my hip, and let’s go!” - Gina Torres (on playing a superhero/villain)








I’ve been waiting for someone to make this a gif

damn near 30 years ago and still relevant

Can someone show me a similarly frank conversation about rape culture in any of your progressive faves….

I’ll Wait

I think it’s super interesting this convo is happening between two men of colour BECAUSE they’re so much more likely to be accused of or picked up during or seen as rapists because of the historical necessities of white supremacy.

Like would a conversation like this happen between two white men of the same era, or now, did it, has it would it?
