#actors who are actually their character
the greatest casting ever.
Even better when you think about how Dan got a place for himself in NY to continue his career, Emma went to a school in USA, and Rupert bought an ice cream truck.
Follow your dreams Rupert
I didn’t know this. So I looked it up and - HE ACTUALLY DID.
‘I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short.
I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. ‘I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.”
It makes it even better that he just GIVES the icecream away.
this poST GETS MORE AND MORE AMAZING AS YOU READ
MINE IS CRAPPY
WHAT CARRIAGE ARE YOU IN!??!?!

THE SLYTHERINS HAVE HACKED DUMBLEDORE’S WIFI
Thanks to the Ravenclaws, guys.
The password’s “AL0H4M0R4”
Pass it on.
Our dear England naively thought that reducing the intensity of the piss-yellow hair dye he uses would somehow make it look less godawful and less like, well, piss.
He was wrong.
Now I don’t know what those people were paying him when they told him to make that pose, but apparently the recession has finally broken him and he’ll do anything for a tuppence.
With one strangely short, stiff, lifeless arm he pumps the air and with the strangely dislocated other he holds out the Union Flag, because that’s how we Brits like to show how excited we are.
Clearly he must have been in a hurry as he barely had time to iron any of his clothes or grab a handful of tissues to stuff into his coat pocket. He isn’t fooling anyone at this stage.
Oh Lord is that a skull I see in his tie? Rather fitting - the pose and all other above components alone can only spell the beginning of the end for any shred of dignity this poor soul has.
And speaking of souls, one can’t help noticing the disturbing lack of it in our England’s eyes.
Well folks, he finally did it. He summoned the devil and this is the consequence. We English really are buggered now.
German invasion of Poland, September 1st, 1939
"At 4:45 a.m., some 1.5 million German troops invade Poland all along its 1,750-mile border with German-controlled territory. Simultaneously, the German Luftwaffe bombed Polish airfields, and German warships and U-boats attacked Polish naval forces in the Baltic Sea. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler claimed the massive invasion was a defensive action, but Britain and France were not convinced. On September 3, they declared war on Germany, initiating World War II.
To Hitler, the conquest of Poland would bring Lebensraum, or ‘living space,’ for the German people. According to his plan, the ‘racially superior’ Germans would colonize the territory and the native Slavs would be enslaved. German expansion had begun in 1938 with the annexation of Austria and then continued with the occupation of the Sudetenland and then all of Czechoslovakia in 1939. Both had been accomplished without igniting hostilities with the major powers, and Hitler hoped that his invasion of Poland would likewise be tolerated.
To neutralize the possibility that the USSR would come to Poland’s aid, Germany signed a nonaggression pact with the Soviet Union on August 23, 1939. In a secret clause of the agreement, the ideological enemies agreed to divide Poland between them. Hitler gave orders for the Poland invasion to begin on August 26, but on August 25 he delayed the attack when he learned that Britain had signed a new treaty with Poland, promising military support should it be attacked. To forestall a British intervention, Hitler turned to propaganda and misinformation, alleging persecution of German-speakers in eastern Poland. Fearing imminent attack, Poland began to call up its troops, but Britain and France persuaded Poland to postpone general mobilization until August 31 in a last ditch effort to dissuade Germany from war.
Shortly after noon on August 31, Hitler ordered hostilities against Poland to begin at 4:45 a.m. the next morning. At 8 p.m. on August 31, Nazi S.S. troops wearing Polish uniforms staged a phony invasion of Germany, damaging several minor installations on the German side of the border. They also left behind a handful of dead concentration camp prisoners in Polish uniforms to serve as further evidence of the supposed Polish invasion, which Nazi propagandists publicized as an unforgivable act of aggression.
At 4:45 a.m. on September 1, the invasion began. Nazi diplomats and propagandists scrambled to head off hostilities with the Western powers, but on September 2 Britain and France demanded that Germany withdraw by September 3 or face war. At 11 p.m. on September 3, the British ultimatum expired, and 15 minutes later British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain went on national radio to solemnly announce that Britain was at war with Germany. Australia, New Zealand, and India followed suit shortly thereafter. At 5:00 p.m., France declared war on Germany.
In Poland, German forces advanced at a dizzying rate. Employing a military strategy known as the blitzkrieg, or ‘lightning war,’ armored divisions smashed through enemy lines and isolated segments of the enemy, which were encircled and captured by motorized German infantry while the panzer tanks rushed forward to repeat the pattern. Meanwhile, the sophisticated German air force—the Luftwaffe—destroyed Polish air capability, provided air support for the blitzkrieg, and indiscriminately bombed Polish cities in an effort to further terrorize the enemy.
The Polish army was able to mobilize one million men but was hopelessly outmatched in every respect. Rather than take a strong defensive position, troops were rushed to the front to confront the Germans and were systematically captured or annihilated. In a famously ill-fated strategy, Polish commanders even sent horsed cavalry into battle against the heavy German armor. By September 8, German forces had reached the outskirts of Warsaw, having advanced 140 miles in the first week of the invasion.
The Polish armed forces hoped to hold out long enough so that an offensive could be mounted against Germany in the west, but on September 17 Soviet forces invaded from the east and all hope was lost. The next day, Poland’s government and military leaders fled the country. On September 28, the Warsaw garrison finally surrendered to a relentless German siege. That day, Germany and the USSR concluded an agreement outlining their zones of occupation. For the fourth time in its history, Poland was partitioned by its more powerful neighbors.
Despite their declaration of war against Germany, Britain and France did little militarily to aid Poland. Britain bombed German warships on September 4, but Chamberlain resisted bombing Germany itself. Though Germans kept only 23 divisions in the west during their campaign in Poland, France did not launch a full-scale attack even though it had mobilized over four times that number. There were modest assaults by France on its border with Germany but these actions ceased with the defeat of Poland. During the subsequent seven months, some observers accused Britain and France of waging a ‘phony war,’ because, with the exception of a few dramatic British-German clashes at sea, no major military action was taken. However, hostilities escalated exponentially in 1940 with Germany’s April invasion of Norway and May invasion of the Low Countries and France.
In June 1941, Hitler attacked the USSR, breaking his nonaggression with the Soviet Union, and Germany seized all of Poland. During the German occupation, nearly three million Polish Jews were killed in the Nazi death camps. The Nazis also severely persecuted the Slavic majority, deporting and executing Poles in an attempt to destroy the intelligentsia and Polish culture. A large Polish resistance movement effectively fought against the occupation with the assistance of the Polish government-in-exile. Many exiled Poles also fought for the Allied cause. The Soviets completed the liberation of Poland in 1945 and established a communist government in the nation.” (source)

thank you! in the unlikely event that he did come back, and he was given free reign over the show (assuming he continues with the current characters rather than creating his own new ones) i think hypothetically that
- clara’s fam would feature more and be made more dimensional
- more focus on modern day britain, rather than moffat’s victorian preference
- the control freak nonsense might be swept under the rug and we stick with what we were shown in 7B- that clara is a sentimental, maternal, selfless woman
- no more time skips!! no years and years offscreen anymore, we see the important stuff in these characters lives
- normalised queer representation, a more racially diverse cast
- a return to naturalised dialogue, rather than structured dialogue- just a preference he has, that i also prefer
- a return to realism rather than the fairy tale/epic, again a preference i prefer
- more people actually dying to show that the threat of the episode is real
- more classic who characters returning like sarah, k-9, jo and the brig (he planned ace to come back in sja, so she would probably pop up)
- luke smith would come back and be confirmed to be gay like as planned, i can’t imagine him passing that up after the chance was taken away from him with lis’s passing
- more ensemble casts
- twelve’s weird ‘negging’ of clara would hopefully stop, along with the general meanness like when he was so hard to journey about her brother dying
- characters would have more clearly defined arcs, with a beginning and an end
- gallifrey confirmed to be destroyed after all~ lmao, i can’t imagine he was happy with the decision to undo all his work, especially seeing as he said it would be a betrayal to bring them back
- less red herrings/misleading the audience, no more multiple year long mysteries- everything is contained within each season
- consequences~ and delivering on what is promised i.e. not being told that someone will die if they do something… and then somehow surviving offscreen
- well written eps like midnight womp womp
