take a good look at me now
‘cause I’ll still be standing here
& you coming back to me is against all odds
Phil Collins, “Against All Odds”
For some reason I imagine Coulson being really into Phil Collins (they practically share a name) and relying on that type of heart-on-sleeve, romantic pop song as shorthand if his words weren’t enough. (Or maybe the Smiths, especially after things didn’t work out.)
When I started wondering about Coulson and this mysterious cellist, I immediately thought of the video to R.E.M.’s “At My Most Beautiful.” It’s very sweet & features Rain Phoenix. For whatever reason when making this, I kept thinking of the cellist as Rowena, ‘Ro for short. Ugh, Avengers, why do you break my heart with all of your good characters & development & unexpected little bits of feeling all injected in.

Innerpartysystem, “What We Will Never Know”
My wonderful friend A has taken up knitting little crochet creatures, and asked if I’d like one — and she made me this adorable little Katara! I love how she made the ‘water’ for her to hold.
Who’s gonna save you
When the stars fall from your sky?
Who’s going to hold you
When you turn out the lights?
I won’t lie, I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight
This is absolutely beautiful. I love the coloring and how all the elements combine. Moon, earth, window; River, Doctor, Amy.
If I always told you the truth I wouldn’t need you to trust me.
Oh season 5, I really love you.
Yes, the absolute best.
Anything is possible when your blog is as awesome as Old Spice and not fail. I’m on a flying bison.
Yip yip, ladies.
My life is now complete.
And one could imagine an entirely different series, where Isaiah Mustafa emerged from the iceberg. “Helloooo Katara.”
Top Five Fictional Characters | 03. The Doctor
Oh Doctor. So I guess I mean The Doctor in general because I believe there are traits that are just who he is but Eleven is MY Doctor. There are many reasons why someone would like a wacky 900 year old time traveling alien but I don’t think that is why I love him.
His sense of adventure is a huge part of it. I have said before how he obvious giddiness when they start a new adventure is just wonderful. We all know the Doctor hates himself for mistakes he made but even so he tries so hard to make the universe a better place even if it’s one being at a time.
This bit is more about Eleven, I love that this Doctor is vulnerable and that he gets angry but he isn’t hurtful. Nine and Ten were always making snotty remarks about people he wasn’t fond of but not Eleven. Even when he does get mad he APOLOGIZES. Something that was far too rare in past seasons. There was an excellent comment on livejournal awhile back that I have always referred back to. This comment explains in a far more eloquent way, why I love The Doctor and more specifically, Eleven.
His Doctor is the first introduction to the show for me, and he’s been captivating from the start.
