Hey there! I'm Elisabeth. I'm a college senior majoring in sign language interpretation, and I love it!
I also love Sherlock, Castle, Doctor Who, Elementary, LOTR, books (lots of books), and other cool stuff like that. Oh, also puns. Lots of puns. I mostly just reblog things I like, so feel free to have a look around.

Things I am passionate about:

Interpreting, American Sign Language, Deafness and the Deaf Community, feminism, dancing, raising awareness about mental illness (especially depression), music (in general), EQUALITY, trying to better myself, changing my pattern of ignorance on different issues, thinking complexly about books/movies/stories, languages, good food (especially gluten free food!), poetry, coffee, being kind to others, staying positive, learning new things, and finding the beautiful in everyday.


I'm always here for anyone who needs to talk or is having a hard time. I know, I've been there, so please message me anytime if you need someone to talk to. Anon is on.

I hope you have a lovely day! :D

P.S. this is my poetry blog:http://swingblueslove.blogspot.com/

I feel that anyone who believes Romeo & Juliet is about some kind of Great and Timeless Love TM* needs to see this.

WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS TODAY IN MY SHAKESPEARE CLASS. 

If you go and actually read what Romeo says to Benvolio in the first scene, you will realize that he is only upset because HE WANTED ROSALINE’S BODY AND SHE SAID NO AND SO ROMEO WAS MOPING AND PITCHING A FIT ABOUT IT. Then, the second he lays eyes on Juliet, he’s basically saying

During the balcony scene, Romeo talks about how he scaled the wall of the garden to see Juliet. That is not romantic. That is disrespectful to her. This is a private area of the Capulet home, and Capulet built the wall around it to protect his daughter. This was a time when a woman’s virtue was the most important thing she owned. If Juliet was found with a man in this very private part of her home, everyone would think she was no longer a virgin, her reputation would be ruined, and it would be much harder, if not impossible, for her father to make a good marriage.

Speaking of good marriages, Count Paris is seen as the bad guy because he “comes between” Romeo and Juliet. Capulet had arranged for Paris to marry Juliet in 2 years time, when she would be 16, in a time when most women were already married and mothers by the time they were Juliet’s age at (almost but not quite) 14. Most fathers would have already had their daughters married by now, but he wants to wait two more years AND PARIS IS OKAY WITH THAT. Not only that, but Paris is young (her father could have had her married to a 60 year old man), titled (he’s a fucking Count), wealthy (again, he’s a count, which means Juliet will have financial stability), and, from what we see of him, he is a very good guy. Capulet could have done a LOT worse in choosing his son-in-law.

Finally, here’s something to consider: Juliet was 13, Romeo was 17. Their relationship lasted 3 days, defied their parents, and ended in the deaths of 6 people.

If I ever hear you say that Romeo and Juliet is the greatest love story ever told, I will bitch slap you.

That is all.

THANK YOU! SOMEBODY FINALLY PUT IT IN WORDS FOR ME

It wasn’t a romance. Shakespeare never wrote romances.

So what happens if two people who have promised their firstborn to separate witches have a child together? Do they both just pop up in the nursery and have a custody battle?

I need a book about a little girl whose parents had promised their firstborn to different witches and the only way that both ends of the deal were fulfilled was for them to have joint custody of the child.

I love it!

And then the witches, forced to share a cottage while raising their joint stolen child, fall in love…

The Original Broadway Cast of Disney’s The Lion King


Mufasa :: Sarabi :: Young Nala and Simba :: Simba :: Nala:: Rafiki :: Pumba and Timon :: Zazu :: Scar :: The Hyenas (Ed, Shenzi, and Banzai)

This was one of the most amazingly costumed Broadway shows I’ve ever seen.

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

i love this moment because when the butler walks in darcy’s all oh it’s just the butler announcing we’ve run out of the good butter and returns to his paper i like to think it’s the regency era equivalent of the financial review or the wall street journal but as soon as he hears miss elizabeth.. his head jerks up and BOOM we know he’s got it bad. and caroline. poor caroline. i constantly dismiss caroline as a horrible jealous snob but really, i feel for her in this scene because she’s just like WHAT IS HAPPENING NUUUUUUUUUUU darcy what are you doing loving on this peasant girl look at moi darciiiii look at moi but no. darcy’s lost in elizabeth’s fine eyes and she ain’t even in the room yet
