1920s - “So, what are we doing?” “Crime!”
After fighting in the trenches of the Great War, Malcolm Reynolds and Zoe Washburne open a restaurant in Manhattan. Serenity’s a bit dingy and a lot disreputable-looking, but it is a front for a speakeasy and other not-so-legal enterprises. Jayne Cobb’s intimidatin’ person makes public relations a breeze, and no one on the East Coast is half the getaway driver Hoban “Wash” Washburne is. Kaylee Frye’s young, but she’s a genius when comes to keeping Serenity running. Good thing too, no one else has a clue how restaurants and speakeasies work. Inara Serra lends the operation some respectability. Can’t be too bad a place if you’ve got a talented jazz singer, right? Things get a little complicated when the Tam siblings come crashing through with the Bureau of Investigation hot on their heels. Simon gave up a glittering surgical career to break River out of a fancy government-funded boarding school upstate. He says they were messing with her mind. Whether or not that’s true, she’s definitely a bit in the way of Zelda Fitzgerald. It’s a heap of trouble, but the crew doesn’t have to explain gunshot wounds to nosy nurses anymore. For some reason, Derrial Book’s hanging around, and he knows an awful lot about shady folk and their ways for a pastor. Not much they can do about that: the guy’s a real help. Still, it ain’t easy. Plans never go smooth and it’s a bit too easy to catch a bullet between the eyes, especially when everyone in town thinks you’re a man of honor in a den of thieves. But at the end of the day, after they’ve outrun cops and outgunned competition, they still got Serenity. It ain’t much, but it’s enough.
Bryan Fuller wants David Bowie to play Hannibal’s dad in the second season and you’re telling me that NBC still doesn’t know if it wants to renew this show.
I am not art. I am not here to enlighten you. I was not born to save you - I was born for myself, and it’s myself that I will save.
I really wanted to do a set for the lovely ladies of Hannibal - and to illustrate the disillusionment of female characters as art pieces used only for the development of the male characters.
#for approx 3 seconds this show was a happy show about a man and his dogs and his boat motors #dogs are so inherently not performative though #will ‘i could not be performance if i tried’ graham surrounding himself with this lack of performativity #i’m so delighted #will fucking graham (borgevino)

……. when in doubt? Post it anyway. Scare yourself a little bit every day!
EXHIBIT A! Kate Bishop! Katie-kate, Girly-girl, The Brainy Hawkeye? David Aja’s design for Kate is elegant, understated, and oh my gahhd how do I get from there to here? There is no direct flight. I also really liked this version of her, by McKelvie.
EXHIBIT B! … actually? That’s all I got. I am not.. going to.. stress out… about.. it… ┬─┬ノ( º _ ºノ)
Wait, no, I lied,
EXHIBIT C! When I showed this to my boyfriend, he said he thought that Kate looked like she couldn’t decide whether to be annoyed or amused, which I am going to guess is a feeling she knows well… *cough*clint*cough* ;)

And then, sometime around midnight, I mixed a screwdriver and opened Photoshop. Ohohoho.
Last statement is, if you have to add a disclaimer like “Set somewhere-and-when during the current run of Hawkeye therefore Kate is 20ish,” you might have a special hell ship. (But why is it the special hell ship.)
Actual last statement, here is a link to Things on Hazel’s Head for anyone whose life I’ve just ruined. Cute corgis mend all ills!
Plague doctors were individuals in the Middle Ages who were given the task of tending to people infected with the plague. In most cases, they were either second rate or under-trained physicians, incapable of maintaining their own practice. Many were not doctors at all, but people of various other employments paid by towns to cater to the sick.
Plague doctors were employed in various methods whenever plague set in. The earliest documentation of these individuals being hired go as far back as the mid 500s AD. The plague doctor image that we as a general public are familiar with was not seen until the 1600s. It was then that the “traditional” plague doctor costume was created. The costume consisted of a cloak made of heavy fabric covered in wax to protect the doctor’s body, and a mask to keep out the sick air. The masks had a long cone shaped structure at the nose, to be filled with scents that would protect the doctor from the bad air.
Because of the nature of their work, plague doctors often became victims of the plague themselves, or were quarantined for the protection of the public.
