Got bored one night and made this. Yay me!
About me: Super duper girly cis gal; intersectional feminist; ally of the "sit down and listen up" variety; Wiccan; equal parts optimistic about and fed up with humanity so I mostly just blog things I find funny. Or things that are Buffy. Occasionally other shows. Always dragons.
The best thing that ever happened was definitely during “The Message”. I think for some reason it wasn’t on the gag reel. It was possibly the best piece of acting I’ve ever seen, which is the three-sixty [360 degree camera rotation] that Tim [as director] did while everyone was listening to the farewell message from Tracey [played by Jonathon Woodward]. And Nathan is standing with Zoe, looking kind of stricken - this is his old friend - and the camera pans around to Kaylee - and Nathan’s sitting next to Kaylee, looking kind of stricken in another way. And he managed to duck under the camera and get to every single member of the cast and just look really sad [laughs]. And some of them just could not keep it together and some of them did. But I’ve got to tell you - it’s hard to describe. And then when it finally panned down to the body in the coffin, Nathan was lying in [Woodward’s] arms, looking stricken. It was unbelievable - not only hilarious, but technically proficient. He really put some thought into it. But that’s Nathan.

Let me remind you that this is the man who managed to say “the hammer is my penis” in Dr. Horrible and not break down laughing
This. Is. Why. I. Adore. Nathan. Fillion. Adore. People who make others laugh are gems.
watch this irish man get tragically crushed by adorable sneezing baby seals
This is how I want to die.
DEATH BY BLORP
I want to live and die like this. Squishes by seal pups. Every day, every minute of the day, 25/8.
Don Antonio Loffredo says crime families often feel trapped by a life they were born into, and are eager to find alternatives for their kids. So he put them to work fixing up the seriously neglected catacombs. Mud and dirt covered much of the floor; an old lighting system left much of the artwork in shadows; and a store room had been stuffed with waste and old equipment from a nearby hospital. All of it had to go.
"When we started they were 16-year-olds. Now they’re in their 20s, and they’re paid because they are entrepreneurs. It’s not hard to offer alternatives to crime if you’re creative and available," he says. And after fixing up the Catacombs, they went to work in management, the ticket office, and as guides.
