Porthos + General Alex Dumas

In all his adventures, the main thing that set Dumas apart was his refusal to countenance this bullying of the weak by the strong… Dumas was unrestrained when outnumbered and outgunned, just as he was unrestrained when he disagreed with his superiors. But toward anyone less powerful than he was, Alex Dumas showed nothing but self-restraint and a kind of violent love. (from The Black Count by Tom Reiss)

Howard Charles has said in various interviews that one of the major influences for the character of Porthos in BBC’s The Musketeers is the real-life figure of General Alex Dumas, novelist Alexandre Dumas’ beloved mixed-race father who rose to incredible heights in the military during the heady days of the French Revolution. It’s intriguing to pick out the nuances of General Dumas’ character and biography that Howard brings into the role.
(Between the ink sketch filter and the poster filter, this came out looking a little like a Western, so I went with it… I could definitely see Porthos as a marshal in the wild West.)

There is a shipwreck between your ribs and it took eighteen years
for me to understand how to understand your kind of drowning.

There are people who cannot be held quietly. There are screams
that are never externalized. If I looked at the photo albums of your
past twenty years, all I would find are decibel meter graphs of
phone calls and the intensity of your silence as you sat
smoking cigarettes in the garage.

There is a shipwreck between your ribs. You are a box with
fragile written on it, and so many people have not handled you
with care.

And for the first time, I understand that I will never know
how to apologize for being
one of them.

i really can’t get over just how GREAT sophie turner’s acting is. she often gets so little to actually say or do, but somehow it results in some of the most powerful acting in the whole show.

she’s just so perfect and subtle and internal - people often say that you can’t properly translate Sansa to the screen because a lot of her chapters are her internal thought processes but you can just see the pain and anger deep inside of her through her body language but most importantly, just through her eyes, and it’s utterly remarkable. i continue to be blown away.

image

OH and not to mention it feels extra authentic because she cares a lot about book!sansa. She not only uses the script but she reads the chapters closely to get into her headspace and to flesh her out more. (She blurs book and show Sansa to the extent where she mistakes quotes from the show with those from the books in interviews, "I think she always has good lines each season. And then there was: “There are no heroes; in life, the monsters always win.” and she’s used “courtesy is a lady’s armour”, too).

#sophie turner is a gift and a prodigy #i am just genuinely so impressed #sansa stark #sophie turner #and i think as evidenced by the most recent episode - grrm stresses how withdrawn sansa is #and him not giving her many lines did not mean she didn’t get less screentime #there’s just so much pressure on that kind of acting? bc you don’t have words to play out? #it’s literally just you and your face and your emotion and i dont think many other actors could do what sophie’s doing #apparently one of her audition scenes was when she sees ned’s head and considers pushing joffrey and that’s when they knew #that she was sansa #it makes me sad she’ll probably never be recognised with awards and stuff for all this #because she deserves it

Fun fact: Cheetahs only attack prey that runs

jesus that is good to know.

Yup, that’s the point you just stay still and let it do whatever the fuck it wants that doesn’t involved you getting eaten. 

REALLY FUN FACT for big cats cheetahs are fucking docile as shit
my grandfather ran a cheetah sanctuary in south africa and he’d just lie with them and sleep among them and they’d rub against him and chirp at him they’re big fucking babies

Another Fun Fact: Cheetahs are incredibly nervous animals. One of the (many) reason’s they’re going extinct is that cheetahs are so sensitive and nervous, some of them are literally too nervous to breed. Others will breed, but stress themselves out so much, they’ll lose their cubs. So zoos with breeding programs had to figure out how to make cheetahs comfortable enough to first of all, get laid and secondly - not spazz themselves into miscarrying.So what’d they do? They gave the cheetah’s their very own Service Dogs!The dogs make them feel safe, protected and secure!

AJHHHHFDDGHH SO PRECIOUS

this post just got so much better

THIS IS OFFICIALLY MY FAVOURITE POST

“I met my wife at a Star Trek convention. She was study abroad from France and spoke little English, and I didn’t know a lick of French. So, for the first few months of our relationship, we communicated by speaking Klingon.”

Okay I’m not even a Star Trek fan but that’s beautiful.

friendly reminder that there’s a cut scene in Thor that while the Destroyer is blowing shit up, Darcy runs into the pet store to save all the animals and give them to people leaving the town

as things are being set on fire around her, she talks to the dog, telling him I  won’t let the big scary monster step on you,  and names it Baker

sansaofhousestark:

i’m actually amazed i haven’t heard more people talking about the moment sansa assists tyrion in this ep. sansa choosing to assist tyrion is a Huge Deal considering the situation - joffrey is publically humiliating him, making a big, ugly display of his power. and simply by handing tyrion the cup sansa is openly displaying her hostility towards joffrey, and her giving voice to everyone’s disapproval. not to mention, it’s a perfect example of ‘courtesy is a lady’s armour’ - that kindness, acting doubly as an insult, as a statement. she chooses to side with the person joffrey is humiliating. she takes away some of his power just by being kind.

and can we talk about this moment?

this is the person who tormented her for months. the person who could easily punish her over and over for any small transgression against him.

and she looks him in the eye, bends down and picks up that cup, and makes no mistake in showing him she knows exactly what she’s doing and she doesn’t approve of his actions.



“The researchers found that that sad music has a counterintuitive appeal – it actually makes people feel better. Sad songs allow listeners to experience indirectly the emotions expressed in the lyrics and implied by the (usually) minor-key melodies. The sadness may not directly reflect the listener’s own experiences, but it triggers chemicals in our brain that can produce a cathartic response: tears, chills, an elevated heartbeat. This is not an unpleasant feeling, and may explain why listeners are inclined to buy sad songs and why artists want to write or sing them.” The science of why we love sad songs. Pair with these 7 essential reads on music, emotion, and the brain. (via explore-blog)
