To me the clones represent the many way our lives could go - the many possibilities for any one person. And to me it’s interesting at the end of season one, we find out that the clones have been patented. That always resonated for me as a woman to have this idea of our bodies not being our own. There’s this media ownership over the images of women’s bodies and there’s such an emphasis on your body representing who you are and defining who you are and also fitting into a specific box. I feel that’s a very resonant theme for young women like myself, and especially women in this industry.

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

Porthos, from The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas.

I have to say he’s not wrong:

(Picture from this post.)

In Hellboy, I love the fact that Liz Sherman comes to terms with who she is by allowing Hellboy to be who he is. I think that’s a very beautiful love story, better than the "Beauty and the Beast" idea of the beast having to look like a prince. Instead, the princess has to accept her own bestiality so the love story can happen.

- Guillermo del Toro (Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions)

Porthos is someone who enjoys life to the full because he knows the value and fragility of it. He was born in darkness and found the light. Becoming a musketeer is very much the zenith of his attainment. It means everything to him.

My first shot was galloping across a field of snow with all these bits of kit on me and I just was loving it. I was trying to look compelling and serious and I just had this big grin on my face by the end of every shot.

First I’ll comb my hair while it’s still wet, then mess it up again as I give it a quick dry with the towel. Then I’ll put some product on my fingers and rough it up, just enough to hold it together. My hair is naturally dry and frizzy, so without any product it can get quite wild.

"From that time," continued Aramis, "I have lived very agreeably. I have begun a poem in verses of one syllable. That is rather difficult, but merit in all things consists in the difficulty. The matter is high-flown. I will read the first canto to you. It has four hundred verses, and lasts a minute."

“‘Pon my word, my dear Aramis,” said D’Artagnan, who detested verses almost as much as he did Latin, “add to the merit of difficulty that of brevity, and you are sure your poem will have at least two merits.”

- Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers (ch.28).

He found Athos and Aramis philosophising. Aramis was manifesting a decided inclination to resume the cassock. Athos, according to his principles, neither encouraged nor dissuaded him. Athos was for leaving every man to his own free will. He never proffered advice, and those who asked him had to ask him twice.

"People, as a rule," he said, "ask advice only to disregard it; and if they follow it, it is only for the sake of having someone to blame for having given it."

- Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers (ch. 34). (via j-august)

I adore those boys and I felt that very early on. It really hit home to me about a week after I got back when I suddenly realised I felt a bit anxious. I think Howard was the first person I saw - we were watching one of the episodes and I just had a moment about ten minutes into the episode when I suddenly felt very aware of Howard’s presence and I felt fine again. I thought, “God, what on earth is happening? I’m co-dependent”.
