Alex, she/hers, aromantic ace, 19, American in Scotland

I'm a second year student at the University of Edinburgh for English Literature.

This blog is unashamedly eclectic, so expect fandom things whatever grabs me at the moment. I also post a lot of social justice type posts.
I tag epilepsy warning (for fast or flashing gifs), arachnophobia, and common triggers in the form "x tw". Please ask me to tag anything you need to blacklist and I will absolutely do it without question. My askbox is always open.

I suffer from an advanced stage of dad humor. Prepare for puns.

Winslet recalls that she and DiCaprio would sometimes lie on the set smoking hand-rolled cigarettes and staring up at the stars. Other times, she would watch him play Tomb Raider on Nintendo or they would sing to each other - the Bette Midler hit “Wind Beneath My Wings,” an indirect, on-site spoof of the Titanic scene in which Jack leads Rose to the prow of the ship and tells her to close her eyes and spread out her arms. When Winslet had an attack of vertigo on the back of the upended poop deck - spending a week in harnesses suspended l00 feet in the air - DiCaprio calmed her down. “I just told her we were safe,” he says. “She believed me.” One night, very late, Winslet and DiCaprio were lying on the deck during a break. An assistant approached for food orders. “Leo was so tired,” Winslet recalls; he had his head on Winslet’s stomach and asked for a sandwich. “The assistant asked, `What do you want on it?’ and Leo said, `Oh, Kate will tell you.’ And Leo just kind of fell asleep. And I did know exactly what he wanted - this kind of cheese and no tomato and no pickle. I absolutely knew. And I thought, `God, that’s really weird that I know this person so well.’ It was brilliant.”

the avengers | victorian au

When the future of England, her colonies, and basically the entire world is jeopardised by a secret order of radical scientific geniuses who call themselves ‘Advanced Idea Mechanics’, the Queen herself establishes a covert league of extraordinary gentlemen (and women) to foil the A.I.M.’s nefarious intentions and restore peace and order in the Realm.

This is all kinds of awesome.
