Not safe for work and/or school. I post/reblog things I like. This blog contains a lot of posts about "The Mentalist" as well as Val Kilmer and his films/other activities. Spoilers will be seen here. You have been warned. May contain swear words/strong language. Most importantly, though, is this: NONE of the images are mine, with the exception of the picture of the ferret that shows up next to the posts on your dash. Same goes for all of the quotes/chats. I am not out to take ownership of anything on here which belongs to someone else; I just am using this to pass them along so that others can be exposed to these things. If something is actually mine, I will say so. Otherwise, everything else belongs to its/their respective owner(s).
Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
so basically we want Donna back
You can’t come to my warm place because you’re EVIL!

You do NOT buy a fourteen-year-old girl a spa package and NOT tell her parent, who doesn’t even realize that you know her! And then telling her father to give her your best when he asks HOW you know her? You have to know how creepy that is.
Even if she is maybe-kinda-sorta going to be your niece someday.
Sheamus punching Mark Henry, that is.
The Phantom is my favorite character simply because he’s fascinating, amazingly intelligent and talented, unpredictable, and draws a lot of sympathy from me. I do believe that along with his obsession he truly loved Christine, otherwise he wouldn’t have let her go. I do believe there is still good in him despite everything. I don’t have to ignore the horrible things he’s done or romanticize him to like him, I acknowledge his many severe flaws and like him despite them. And no, I don’t think Christine was wrong for not staying with him. And I don’t hate Raoul.
And now they’re honorary WWE superstars
I’m not crying, it’s just raining on my face

#the thing about christine is #perhaps she’s not the epitome of Strong Female Character #because there are a lot of times where the way she’s presented in the narrative #is as more of an object than a subject #like yes she lets the phantom lead her blindly into his lair #and yes she kind of lets raoul ‘save’ her in all i ask of you #i totally see that and understand that #but the point of the christine glorification that happens is #she grows #she grows from the scared little girl clutching onto broken dreams #and she becomes a strong woman who will give her life away for compassion and selflessness #because it’s the right thing to do #she is the one who saves herself in the end #and that’s why she’s such a brilliant character #christine daae the heroine of every story
I think this is why one of my favorite parts of the whole show is when she sings “The* tears I might have shed for your dark fate grow cold and turn to tears of hate,” because you can see the transition she’s really undergone throughout the story.
*can’t remember the line exactly, but I think it’s something like that
