I may always reblog every gifset/imageset I see of this scene, if only to point out (over and over and over again) that Black Widow’s “very specific skillset” is not, actually, ass-kicking (as amazing as she is at that), because all the Avengers can kick ass to a pretty high degree. The Black Widow’s superpower (as it were) is emotional manipulation.

She is not interrogating this man not while tied to a chair. She is tied to a chair because that is exactly where she wants to be, because apparent vulnerability on her part is part of her interrogation. She uses the exact same trick on Loki later, when she leads him into gloating over having successfully pushed her buttons (and I have a theory that he did actually push her buttons, that she was genuinely distressed by the things he said to her because Loki is old enough and smart enough to know when someone is lying to him) and turns his gloating around on him, uses it to dig into the cracks of him, because that is what she does, and she can do it even when her target is expecting it. (Really, Loki knows that’s why she’s there. He was expecting to be physically tortured first, and for her to come be sympathetic later, if you recall, but Loki and Widow both know that wouldn’t work.)

And this is why she’s so unsettled by the Hulk. The Black Widow relies on emotional manipulation — and the Hulk, to the best of her knowledge, only has varying shades of a single emotion: anger. She doesn’t know how to manipulate a creature if it doesn’t have all the hooks to emotions like pride and lust and guilt and greed that she’s used to using.

Interviewer: is that how you pick up girls?

Bradley: I actually pick up girls with various displays of origami.

Interviewer: You do not.

Bradley: Yes, I do. It’s quite a famous tactic here in England. The better you are at origami, the more women you attract.

Interviewer: And you’re sure it’s not because they recognise you from the show?

Colin: Well, generally they’re too distracted by the origami.

Bradley: Yes. My house is origami. I’ve got a car that I drove here today that is made from origami.

Interviewer: It must be very environmentally friendly.

Bradley: Yeah, big time.

Interviewer: Alright, Colin, coming back to Merlin - do you believe in magic?

Colin: After watching Bradley drive around in his origami car, I believe in everything.

Interviewer: Okay. Do you own anything origami?

Colin: No, I’m an origami wannabe. I’ve actually started up a support group because some people have a deficiency in their systems where they can’t actually fold things. I’m a part of that group, and it seems to affect people from Northern Ireland. Anyone prone to paper cuts shouldn’t even enter the origami game. It’s a rough industry and certainly if you don’t have thick skin, you’re going to lose.

Interviewer: Let us guess, we’re your first interview of the day, aren’t we?

Colin: Yes!

Interviewer: And this is how you like to start your day?

Bradley: …I usually start my day with origami.

Best interview ever!!! (via bittsandstuff)

Cecil’s birthmarks changes shape and movement with his emotions - they flare up when he’s flustered or angry, hide under clothing when he’s scared or embarrassed, move rapidly when he’s excited, softer shapes for good feelings and rougher shapes for bad ones etc.

He’s kinda self-conscious about them since it’s like wearing your heart on your sleeve, but Carlos thinks they’re pretty (and also scientifically fascinating).

Adding to list of indulgences: cute bed scenes. With dragons obvs.

occamsphaser:

okay but imagine cecil and carlos deciding to get married and talking about if one of them wants to take the other’s last name or if they want to hyphenate or what

and cecil just is like “not that i don’t think every part of you is perfect but i think most people would agree that ‘palmer’ is a better surname than ‘the scientist’”

and so carlos has to sit his boyfriend down and gently explain that his last name isn’t actually “the scientist” and cecil is sitting there like “is anything i know about you real”

In the Flesh is a BAFTA award winning BBC supernatural drama series in the same vein as Being Human and The Fades. It depicts life in the fictional English village of Roarton after “The Rising”, with a medication that returns consciousness to the undead having been found before the events of the show. It stars Luke Newberry as Kieren Walker, an 18-year-old bisexual/pansexual PDS (“Partially Deceased Syndrome”) sufferer who returns home to extreme prejudice from the conservative townsfolk and alienation from his sister, who - during The Rising - was part of a militia dedicated to hunting down his kind.

BBC recently revealed that BBC3 will be closed down as a TV channel in 2015 and moved completely online. This, sadly, puts the future of this brilliant show in jeopardy. The fandom for this show is small, but devoted and geared up to show their support in any way possible. But it’s not enough. More people should be watching this show - this beautiful, intelligent, revolutionary show. It has many elements of the pieces of media that often drag the vast majority of this website in and it hasn’t quite achieved that yet… Notice that I say “yet”. 

There has already been a list of links to watch the show on tumblr, but the links are outdated and don’t include BBC iPlayer - which is the best way to watch the show as it contributes ratings. Luckily I have a butt load of time and a desperate need to get other people into this show (like, “break into your house and force you to watch it” desperate):

Series One
Episode One: Stream | Torrent
Episode Two: Stream | Torrent
Episode Three: Stream | Torrent

Series Two

Episode One: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Two: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Three: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Four: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Five: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent
Episode Six: BBC iPlayer | Stream | Torrent

Series one isn’t available on BBC iPlayer anymore and episode six of series two airs on Sunday the 8th of June at 10pm UK time. If you live outside the UK and would like to watch the show on BBC iPlayer, you can use extensions such as Hola.

You can also help by using the hashtags #intheflesh and #saveintheflesh over on twitter and following the cast and creatives to show your appreciation - Luke Newberry, Emmett Scanlan, Dominic Mitchell, Emily Bevan, Harriet Cains, Kev Sutton, Marie Critchley, Alice Troughton, Damon Thomas, Dale McCready

“Part of the backstory we created was that Frigga was really the most attentive to Loki when he was a child. And Odin didn’t really know how to connect. He connected much more with Thor. They were sort of cut from the same cloth. And Frigga and Loki had this kind of beautiful, sensitive, more artistic relationship. And it was actually her who taught him all his magic.”

If you were to create the perfect tv show for the people of tumblr, the checklist would be:

  • queer protagonists (but their sexuality is not the focus)
  • non-sexualised and well-rounded female characters
  • villains with a clear and justifiable motive
  • a careful and accurate portrayal of mental health issues
  • a sci-fi or fantasy element
  • a beautiful and lovely cast to fall in love with
  • impeccable script writing, acting, directing and cinematography

yeah wouldn’t that be nice… oh wait

Aggressive/Dramatic Zuko that make me giggle.

Zuko is basically the most perfectly accurate teenager ever to appeal on TV.

raise your glass for the type-A insecure teenagers torn between an intense desire to please and a passionate wish that the world might hopefully implode and crush everyone before dinnertime
