Sofie's the official name, but I mainly go by Soof. 22, female-ish? ('she' or 'they', please), Belgian, INTJ, gay as a triple rainbow, devoted pastafarianist, language and grammar lover (though I try not to be obnoxious about it), rubber duck enthusiast, feminist, fangirl.
Obsessions include but are not limited to: Harry Potter, Warehouse 13, Battlestar Galactica, Orphan Black, Orange Is The New Black, Adventure Time, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Firefly, Welcome To Night Vale, Legend of the Seeker, Lost Girl, The Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, and Pixar (with a dash of Disney).
What I blog about depends mostly on what's currently on tv.
I usually tag my fandom stuff with the name of the series/movie/book/etc, and I try to tag for trigger warnings. If I'm not doing a good enough job at that, or if there's anything else you want me to tag, don't be afraid to ask.
when McGonagall finds out that Ginny is pregnant, and that the Weasley and Potter bloodlines will converge, she marks on her calender the day the child will turn 11 and that is the day she retires
Zoe and Wash, while deeply forever ridiculously in love, are not drift compatible.
Zoe and Mal are drift compatible.
Kaylee and Wash are drift compatible, and they have the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever been seen in the ‘verse - the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever to run away from a kaiju.
(also, the sudden thought of River Tam in a jaeger is rutting terrifying)
She hung from the ceiling, a perfect, motionless sculpture of a girl in the process of becoming a fruitbat. Simon glanced up at her periodically, both checking that she was still present, and reassuring himself that the grind of the machines overhead would keep her from hearing what he had to say. It wasn’t that he was keeping secrets from her; River knew everything about her condition, sometimes more than he did. It was that she didn’t like being talked about, and he respected that.
"They weren’t trying to unlock psychic powers or anything like that, no matter what the rumors say," he said, his voice shaking slightly. Kaylee shifted her weight from foot to foot, disturbed by that tremor in his words. Simon Tam was the best K-scientist she’d ever worked with. For him to sound scared…
"Those people, those monsters…" Simon paused to take a deep breath, relaxing a little at the taste of oil on his tongue. Enough time spent with Kaylee had turned grime into perfume. "They were trying to set up a neural bridge inside a single mind. They wanted to do away with the need for drift compatibility, and privatize the Pilots. Imagine being able to market Jaegers for domestic and commercial use, because you only needed one Pilot, and that Pilot was so doped and dependent that they could never leave you."
"That’s horrific," whispered Kaylee. "They…they messed up her brain tryin’ to do something as can’t be done?"
"Oh, it can be done," said Simon grimly. "They succeeded.
"My sister is in constant Drift with herself."
YOU GET ME THE BEST PRESENTS <333
I hate that moment between “I will write fic to amuse a person” and that person responding because WHAT IF I WROTE IT WRONG.
Thank you for reminding me! :D I’ve kept this message in my inbox so the reminder didn’t also get forgotten (because that would happen with me).
Okay, Merge With Caution. As absolutely hilarious as it was to see Pete and Myka swap bodies for an episode, and as disgustingly perfect as it was to watch them come out of that saga unscathed and still able to high five each other like the asshole, charm-bracelet-wearing besties that they are, there was some true atrocities in that episode. Specifically, in regards to Myka and her high school reunion and how that background story had absolutely nothing to do with her. I mean nothing. They could’ve used literally any other event as the backdrop and taught us just as little about Myka and her character. (In fact, if the event /didn’t/ have to do with Myka, they might have actually taught us more by accident of Joanne Kelly’s fabulous acting.) It was appalling. I was appalled. And here’s why. (Full disclosure, everything in this post is pulled from memory. I didn’t rewatch the ep for this rant because I already have two different WH13 rewatches planned for the near future.)
