Hi there! Sorry to bother you. I just wanted to say that I love seeing all your Being Human posts/tags … and I was wondering if you'd mind taking the time to write out something about your thoughts on John Mitchell? Judging from your tags, I feel like you would have a very interesting, balanced take on his character; most people I follow on tumblr either love him and forgive all his faults, or they completely hate him. And if you don't have time, that's okay too. Thanks! :) — accio-pirates

omg you’re not bothering me at all! i’m surprised anyone would actually ask for my opinion about well anything, really. 

(you’re probably gonna be really disappointed in this i’m sorry baby)

[I JUST WROTE AN ALMOST 3K WORD ESSAY ON MITCHELL]

(includes lots of pictures, some gifs, and a few quotes)

mitchell is so special to me. i can spend hours (edit: i literally just did) studying and breaking him apart. he’s a bad character, and a lot of people miss that because of the whole “mitchell is pretty he can do no wrong” thing which even i suffered from. but if you excuse everything he’s done, and just focus on his looks then oh boy y OU ARE MISSING ONE HELL OF A CHARACTER IT’S A ROLLER-COASTER

he’s both good and bad; he’s both a hero and a villian—boy, you are something

i love mitchell, i always have, and probably always will. bUT with that said, i will probably always hate him, or be really bitter about him. because plainly: mitchell is a little shit who uses people as a means to an end and who always blames everyone else for his mistakes. 

what is mitchell’s means to an end? survival, probably. salvation, happiness—and you know what? it’s what a lot of humans do. strip away everything about humanity, and what’s the end goal? happiness, salvation from themselves, to survive as long as possible. BUT mitchell…abuses it…almost? that and he doesn’t do it right.

mitchell, sadly, suffers from something i like to call the saving complex which means that he seeks salvation from other people (from friends and/or lovers—usually those who have no vampiric influence, they complicate things even more). he both seeks salvation, and offers to give it BUT there’s a catch: you have to save him in order for him to save you—he never really says that directly, though, like “save me and i’ll save you” but it’s implied.

55 Words to Describe Someone’s Voice

writinghelpers:

I was sitting on the computer last night trying to be productive and actually write something. My first sentence included the character listening to a voice through an intercom and my first thought was, “What kind of voice is it?” 

So, naturally, I found myself googling the different ways to describe a voice. I present to you my findings! I hope you all find it useful. 

  • adenoidal (adj): if someone’s voice is adenoidal, some of the sound seems to come through their nose
  • appealing (adj): an appealing look/voice shows that you want help, approval, or agreement
  • breathy (adj): with loud breathing noises
  • brittle (adj): if you speak in a brittle voice, you sound as if you are about to cry
  • croaky (adj): if someone’s voice sounds croaky, they speak in a low, rough voice that sounds as if they have a sore throat
  • dead (adj): if someone’s eyes or voice are dead, they feel or show no emotion
  • disembodied (adj): a disembodied voice comes from someone who you cannot see
  • flat (adj): spoken in a voice that does not go up and down; this word is often used for describing the speech of people from a particular region

Creepy Crypts and Catacombs

Feast your morbidly curious eyes on this season-appropriate gallery by National Geographic. From the bones of 4,000 Capuchin monks who have been used in a strange art to decorate rooms, to Pharaoh Ti erecting a statue of himself to guard his own tomb from looters, this gallery creepily demonstrates humankind’s fascination with death.
