TUMBLR PROF ANNOUNCEMENT: If you are trans or nonbinary and you are in the same situation as the student above, email your professors before class starts. I understand that it might be uncomfortable, but generally professors are absolutely happy to accommodate you. I know I always will be!
If your professor does not respond positively, contact the Dean or the campus LGBT+ resource center with a copy of the email and show them that you are concerned about gender discrimination in the classroom.
Also this is a link to the template I used to write this email, and I’ve seen another similar template going around, and this was extremely helpful.
Okay I love this cameo for more than a few reason. It helps us let go of Eleven/Matt but ultimately I think it is about Matt saying, “accept him. he is the Doctor. accept him like you didn’t accept me at first.” because if you remember back when Matt was cast there was a huge backlash. People didn’t think he could do it, they didn’t think that a 26 year old relatively unknown actor could be the face of Doctor Who.
But they were so wrong. Matt was amazing. And I think that to make sure this didn’t happen again with Peter they did this. It is something that Eleven would do and it fits. But deep down it is saying, “give him a chance. give him the chance you never gave me.”
Imagine Harry and Ginny a few months into their marriage and they’re so happy and in love and then one day they go shopping for food and household items and Harry just casually grabs certain items before Ginny hisses at him to "Check the prices, Harry, God! That bed set is far too expensive, we’re not going to have anything left to get the food with!" And Harry starts to laugh and say "We don’t have to worry about -" and then he stops and he and Ginny look at each other. And Harry realizes that she’s grown up having to measure out all her money and decide what she can and cannot have for a certain week or month or year. And Ginny realizes that she is actually no longer obligated to worry about money ever again.
Imagine Harry and Ginny eating dinner together and Ginny’s telling him about certain meals her mum made and teasing him about how he wolfs everything down and "Honestly Harry, you’re worse than Ron!" and Harry retorts laughingly "well old habits die hard, I had to fight Dudley for meals all the time, you at least knew you were going to eat every day!" And Ginny’s grin starts to fade and she asks "You…you didn’t get to eat everyday?" And Harry realizes what he said and he changes the subject quickly and Ginny looks at the plates in front of him and resists the urge to pile on some more potatoes. And the next day Vernon Dursley’s car is egged.
Imagine Harry and Ginny both suffering from night terrors and PTSD and agreeing that maybe going to that therapist Hermione recommended isn’t such a bad idea, and that’s how Thursday night became Therapy Night when they go out to dinner or to the pub after each session and agree that they need to talk to some Healers about introducing these sessions since therapy is still widely seen as muggle nonsense in the wizarding world.
And Ginny murmurs over her fire whiskey that sometimes she can still hear Tom Riddle murmuring in her ear, and Harry whispers that he dreams about running after his mother and father and Sirius and Remus as they disappear behind the Veil in the Department of Mysteries and he doesn’t know if he wakes from terror or regret about not making it through. And they go back home and hold each other closer that night and both wake up with raging hangovers.
"I’m not laughing. I haven’t laughed since my wife died."
"Why did you laugh when your wife died?"
A Touch of Cloth is Charlie Brooker’s “spoof of every British crime drama made in the last decade”, which packs more spot-on parody, visual gags and groan-inducing puns into the first five minutes of each episode than most comedies manage in an entire series. It’s both excellent and underrated.
It stars John Hannah as DCI Jack Cloth and Suranne Jones as DC Anne Oldman, along with regulars and guest-stars including Julian Rhind-Tutt, Navin Chowdhry, Adrian Bower, Daisy Beaumont, Todd Carty, Anna Chancellor, Stephen Dillane, Karen Gillan.
There have been three two-episode series and I think you’ll all love it. If that winning argument hasn’t convinced you yet, check out this trailer for the first series or even better this awesome chase sequence.
In my quest to spread it’s spoof-tastic joy I’ve uploaded all six episodes to Mega, so they are available to download here [x]. Enjoy!
