Okay fine, I'll put in a blurb. I'm Mormon. I'm 30. I recently started cosplaying, because I apparently wasn't spending my money fast enough. I like Harry Potter, particularly Luna Lovegood or anything Hufflepuff. I like Doctor Who, and particularly love Rory Williams. I like Sherlock, and my favorite character is Molly Hooper. Other favorites are Wonderfalls, Gargoyles and Avatar: The Last Airbender. I'll reblog nearly anything with Louise Brealey, Arthur Darvill, Missy Higgins or Caroline Dhavernas in it. Hello! Nice to meet you.
A few years ago when Billie Piper was playing Rose, I was very worried because the next week’s episode was called something like The Day Rose Died. I can’t remember exactly what it was called. Well, my children were in love with Rose as a companion, and I was worried about her. So I sent an e-mail off to Russell T Davies, who of course had grown up on the classic Doctor Who series, and I said “Could you just reassure me that Rose does not, in fact, die because my children shouldn’t watch it if that happens,” and he sent an e-mail back to me saying, “You killed Adric. What do you care?
I was Re-watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and I realized that the Dursleys not only failed Harry (which they did majorly), they failed Dudley as well.
By spoiling him and enabling him to bully and belittle others from such a young age they are partly what made him the way he was.
Like how they showed him to be greedy by showering him with presents on his birthday and not objecting or telling him he should be grateful when he complained and asked for more.
Or by turning the other way (and even encouraging him) when he bullied other children, especially Harry.
It was their responsibility to teach him right from wrong and they failed.
I am not saying Dudley is completely innocent or that he is stuck being a greedy bully but they certainly didn’t do him any favours.
“Dumbledore paused, and although his voice remained light and calm, and he gave no obvious sign of anger, Harry felt a kind of chill emanating from him and noticed that the Dursleys drew very slightly closer together.
'You did not do as I asked. You have never treated Harry as a son. He has known nothing but neglect and often cruelty at your hands. The best that can be said is that he has at least escaped the appalling damage you have inflicted upon the unfortunate boy sitting between you.'”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
There is so much truth in all of this.

Santino Fontana on auditioning for Frozen:
"So basically, all that they told me about the character was he’s super confident, perhaps overly confident, he needs to be able to sing with a "Broadway sound" and he’s really good with women, but he may have a dark side. I came into the sound studio and I was very nervous and I sang this."
This sweater makes me cry, I want it so badly. I showed it to my roommate, saying, “On a scale of 1 to 10…” and she took one look and said, “Yeah, you’d wear that.”
It’s a beautiful thing! She’s an extraordinary actress, Louise Brealey. It’s really, really good fun, that strain of it. All of the characters are back, and all of them play a role. From what I hear, I imagine she’s another way in for the audience, as well as John. She sort of, ahem, represents a few people out there. I better be careful what I say now… But it’s also about what she has, which is independence. She may be quiet, she may be retiring, but she’s a strong woman at the same time. Just because she’s fallen for a couple of sociopaths doesn’t mean we should necessarily rule her out as a sane and courageous strong woman.
-Benedict Cumberbatch on Molly in Sherlock series 3
I seems that Molly gets a bigger part in the new series.
