palekings replied to your post: HH is going to India soon (!!) and needs advice on…
omg WHERE in india!!!!
She’s going to New Delhi for a wedding! She made a post about it & if you have any advice, please let her know! I don’t think I know anyone else who’s been to India.
In no particular order:
- Charlotte Bronte (too lazy to find the umlaut)
- Thomas Hardy
- Zadie Smith
- Henry James (mostly into his short stories, though)
- George Eliot
There are a bunch of other novelists I adore. Some honorable mentions: Elizabeth Kostova, Ian McEwan, James Baldwin (although I confess I’ve only read Giovanni’s Room,) Jonathan Lethem. I can’t wait to start reading for fun again.
Sherlock would never be played by a woman, y’all. We just have too many emotions to be as cold and logical as the original.
… Can I introduce you to some women in my life? I feel like you would say otherwise after you met them.
I hope OP was being ironic >.>
# srsly because that whole ‘women are so emotional and men have no emotions’ thing is bullshit
(yes, we know)
Sarcasm, you guys, sarcasm. (Note the “#ricksantorumsays dot tumblr” tag in the original post, lolll.) Think about it - Stephen Moffat’s Sherlock is populated by very few women, and those on the show tend to be ruled by their emotions. Even Irene Adler was undone by infatuation at the end. Neha was indeed being ironic because Moffat tends to write women who act with their hearts, not their heads. Other films and television shows have reinvented traditionally male characters as female successfully (my favorite being Starbuck), but Stephen Moffat isn’t interested in that.
I think everyone in this thread is actually in agreement, so let’s calm down.
asked: tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
Tell me about the dream where we pull the bodies out of the lake
and dress them in warm clothes again.
How it was late, and no one could sleep, the horses running
Until they forget that they are horses.
It’s not like a tree where the roots have to end somewhere,
it’s more like a song on a policeman’s radio,
how we rolled up the carpet so we could dance, and the days
were bright red, and every time we kissed there was another apple
to slice into pieces.
Look at the light through the windowpane. That means it’s noon, that means
Tell me how all this, and love too, will ruin us.
These, our bodies, possessed by light.
Tell me we’ll never get used to it.

asked: hmm we would go to a bookstore and perhaps a cigar bar during our lunch break from our jobs at the new yorker
NEHA I HAVE THE ASTHMA
It’s ok though, we’ll just go to an alcohol bar & start in on cocktails around noon
asked: YOU DA YOU DA BEST! seriously, i know things have been rough for you (last year, and this stuff with your grades @ simmons) but you are mega super awesome and cool and remember: "everything will be okay in the end; if it's not okay, it is not the end."

is a social life like a thing people have or
asked: LET'S TALK ABOUT HOW MUCH WE LOVE SMUGSHAW AND THE LAMP THAT COULD SAVE THE WORLD AND MONEYPENNY AND HOW THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE CONSPIRACIES~~
The Moneypenny/James detail is so cute and also sets the stage for an apparently realistic conspiracy. The lamp is going to keep our heroes together and thus allow them to bring the justice through news whilst also bringing the adorbs and the perfect ship which is perfect. Whishaw/Garai in all of the things. I love that they have like a book club or something and that their characters are snappy and fabulous.
OMG THIS SHOW MIGHT FILL THE HOLE THAT BATTLESTAR GALACTICA LEFT IN MY SOUL. (Say what you will about sci-fi, that show had amazing character development, relatable/compelling women, etc.) I was SO IMPRESSED in world that is CONSTANTLY DISAPPOINTING.
