A study in creating great characters, by Aaron Ehasz (head writer of Avatar the Last Airbender). A lot of animation lead characters are forced to fit the far right criteria, but think of the many classic characters that are better described by the left: Tony Soprano, Frank Underwood, Jamie Lannister, Walter White, etc.

Have you guys heard of partial heterochromia iridum?

It’s when part of one iris is a different color from its remainder.

Yeah, I have it on my left eye, and so does my cousin. (that or at least that big black eye I got when I was like 3 did something funky)

2AM

 In the first place, Cranford is in possession of the Amazons; all the holders of houses above a certain rent are women. If a married couple come to settle in the town, somehow the gentleman disappears; he is either fairly frightened to death by being the only man in the Cranford parties, or he is accounted for by being with his regiment, his hip, or closely engaged in business all the week in the great neighbouring commercial town of Drumble, distant only twenty miles on a railroad. In short, whatever does become of the gentlemen, they are not at Cranford.

1AM

Family Get Together

  • My brother comes in carrying his wife's breastpump and a bottle of milk
  • Red: Eww! Gross!
  • Mormonhippie: Only ignorant people like <i>you</I> think breastmilk is gross.
  • hi-ur-so-rad: You used to love breastmilk.
  • Red: I think that's a lie, just like the diaper thing.

I’ve been watching Wives and Daughters. Always a little caught off guard by how adorable, brooding, and downright heart-breaking Tom Hollander is in this role. I’m so used to seeing him as creepy Mr. Collins, or the villain in the Pirates franchise. I’m sure he’s done a lot of incredible dramatic acting—I’m just not familiar with any of it.

He was quite romantic. I kind of fell in love with him here.

Serious Thought:

I love the role reversal of Osborne have in their sibling relations. Roger definitely takes more of an older-brother approach to how he treats Osborne because Osborne needs taking care of, yet at the same time Osborne still roles rolls his eyes and takes on a “you haven’t seen nothin’ yet little bro” attitude when Roger goes on about Cynthia.

Further proof of their collective awesomeness really.

So I was doing some Instant Watching over on Netflix and got to thinking…It’s easy to get caught up in the enigmatic Mr. Darcys and the brooding Mr. Thorntons of the world but sometimes there is nothing better than spending time with a happy hero.  Glancing at these Wives &amp; Daughters screencaps, it may be hard to tell, but take my word for it—Roger Hamley is part science geek, part adventurer and total sweetheart.  He is seriously kind, thoughtful and probably smiles more than any other character in a BBC period mini-series EVER.  I don’t think Roger could brood if his life depended on it and I wouldn’t have him any other way.
