THIS IS MARRIAGE!!
Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.
He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”
Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT
LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT.
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.
^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.
I would check first too if I was married to Cersi.
Ever wondered what acting would be like??

Must have done something pretty serious. What’d you do, man? What’d you do? What’d you do? Why did they have you in there?
After Dean and Sam “aggressively hitchhike” onto the TARDIS, Sam tries to explain their situation to a very annoyed Doctor.
I decided to make a gifset of my favorite scene from the superwholockthecomic for Fanwork Friday.
HOW DID I MISS THIS
*ACTUALLY SPONTANEOUSLY COMBUSTS BECAUSE EVEN SAM’S BACKGROUND IS RIGHT*
MARRY ME AWABUBBLES
THIS IS THE MOST PERFECT THING TO EVER PERFECT
Twelve’s first words upon awaking in “Listen” were the Fourth Doctor’s first words after regenerating.

Okay but seriously, I actually cannot wrap my head around why anybody would not love Guinevere. Not only was she adorable and funny, but she was also extremely kind, gentle, forgiving, gracious, humble, hard-working, and seriously… so freakin thoughtful and wise. And then she became queen, and never lost any of those qualities; she remained just as meek and loving as she was before, and though she grew up considerably - shook off the bumbling cutie we saw in season 1 and grew to be incredibly graceful, but she never lost who she was. She only grew.
I mean I had some problems with the way she was written - the Lancelot storyline always felt extremely forced to me, I never liked that so much of her character arcs revolved around her relationship with Arthur, and the writers had a tendency to shy away from allowing her character depth through exploring making mistakes or doing bad things. But Guinevere herself?
How can you not be head over heels for her??
