You point a gun at my brother again, I will kick the living shite out of you. / Just don’t die. Because your first funeral was just agonizing enough.
“Felix is Sarah’s heart. They’re each other’s everything. Other than Kira in Sarah’s life, Felix is her family and who she wants to be with. They’re very much siblings, in the sense that they need each other deeply, and yet they use each other and they manipulate each other. Felix is an incredible sounding board for all of Sarah’s fears and all of Sarah’s confusion and the calm in the craziness of her life.” [x]
“Felix and Sarah are at a place in their lives where they’re both very guarded against each other, and at the same time they desperately need one another. My character isn’t super trustworthy, and Felix knows that, and as much as he deeply wants her to be there for him and for them to be a family, it’s just impossible for someone like her. Sarah wants the same thing, too, only she’s just not able to be that person he needs her to be, but other than her daughter, Felix is everything to her. At the same time you see their relationship deepen, it also begins to unravel and becomes threatened by Sarah’s relationships with these other women, these clones. Jordan Garvaris and I talked about the fact that there’s a part of Felix that is a bit jealous of Sarah, and that maybe she has a place. Perhaps after all this time, she’s found this family that she truly does belong to. So there’s an interesting betrayal that happens in their relationship as well as that deepening dependency on each other that I spoke about. It’s very much a case of two siblings who can love and hate one another in the same moment. It’s such a well-written relationship for that reason, and also Felix is hilarious and keeps Sarah from jumping off a bridge herself, so to speak. So he gives her a great deal of himself.” [x]

this is my favorite thing because they literally have THE SAME FACE
Moffat’s the kind of writer who likes watching you suffer through his intricate plot twists and turns. RTD was the kind of writer who snuck up behind you, dropped a bombshell, and then ran away cackling into the night.
plot twist: the 12th doctor is tatiana maslany. the new companion is tatiana maslany. every alien on the show is tatiana maslany. you are tatiana maslany. I am tatiana maslany. we are all tatiana maslany
we’re property. they patented us.
history meme: 01/01 war | The Hundred Years’ War
The Hundred Years’ War was a series of conflicts waged from 1337 to 1453 between the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of France for control of the French throne. The war had its roots in a dynastic disagreement dating back to the time of William the Conqueror, who became King of England in 1066 while retaining possession of the Duchy of Normandy in France. The question of legal succession to the French crown was central to the war over generations of English and French claimants.
The war is commonly divided into three phases separated by truces: the Edwardian Era War (1337–1360), the Caroline War (1369–1389) and the Lancastrian War (1415–1453), which saw the slow decline of English fortunes after the appearance of Joan of Arc in 1429. The term “Hundred Years’ War” is a periodization invented later by historians to encompass all of these events.
Although primarily a dynastic conflict, the war gave impetus to ideas of French and English nationalism. Militarily, it saw the introduction of weapons and tactics that supplanted the feudal armies dominated by heavy cavalry. The first standing armies in Western Europe since the time of the Western Roman Empire were introduced for the war, thus changing the role of the peasantry. For all this, as well as for its duration, it is often viewed as one of the most significant conflicts in medieval warfare. English political forces over time came to oppose the costly venture; while English nobles’ dissatisfactions, resulting from the loss of their continental landholdings, was a factor leading to War of the Roses civil war. In France, civil wars, deadly epidemics, famines and bandit free companies of mercenaries reduced the population drastically. [x]
