thekingandthelionheart said: Heyyyyy Lou, pls tell me more about Kings and why I should watch it. Because I keep seeing your posts and idk what the show is really about, but if it has Sebastian Stan crying a lot like it seems to (and maybe kissing guys?) I think I just may be convinced.

loutheloup:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA WOW SHANNON YOU HAVE NO IDEA THE CAN OF WORMS YOU JUST OPENED.

Let me be very very clear about this. You should never ever watch kings. 

Do you value your sanity? Yes? Don’t watch Kings.

Do you like happiness in your life? Yes? Don’t watch Kings.

Do you love Sebastian Stan and pray that one day he’ll play a character who finds even the slightest bit of peace? Yes? Don’t watch Kings.

This show, Shannon. This. Show.

I dont even know how to describe it. Its a modern take on the story of David and Goliath and David’s ascension to the throne, but its not really that at all? Its about this genuinely good person who keeps trying to help and do good by his family and his country and his god and is continuously hurt for making the right choices. 

Sebastian Stan plays Jack, the son of the king, and David’s rival, though David (played amazingly by Chris Egan) would never see it that way. Im gonna be really honest. I dont know who has the more upsetting storyline? Like yeah, seb clearly looks prettier when he cries but he might have actually found a traumatizing match in chris egan. That boy. That poor sweet boy.

And then there’s King Silas. I dont have words to explain how fucking fantastic and terrifying Ian McShane is as Silas. You can’t help but root for him and but you also really really want someone to kill him.  No one else could have pulled him or his speeches off. Did I mention the language in this yet? Nope. Lets talk about the language. 

It shouldn’t work. Im not sure how to describe it really. Its not shakespearean. Thats not quite the word. But its poetic. And dense. And something. Old fashioned? I dont fucking know. Its awesome. It shouldn’t work. It works.

Susanna Thompson plays the queen and she’s maybe the only person who can steal a scene from Ian McShane. Holy fuck she is amazing. And terrifying. And she’ll make you cry. 

JUST LIKE EVERY SINGLE OTHER PERSON ON THIS SHOW. THERE IS NO WEAK LINK. THERE IS ONLY HORROR AND SORROW.

Which brings me back to my first point-

DONT WATCH KINGS.

But yeah.

If you want to see sebastian stan cry and kiss boys and know truly agonizing soul crushing pain, watch Kings.

photos by gerry ellis from the david sheldrick wildlife trust, a nursery and orphanage for elephants in kenya’s tsavo east national park. here, fifty five keepers are charged with being around the clock parents to an elephant. the elephants, however, are the ones who chose their caretakers; it is the keepers who must ingratiate themselves to the elephants and earn their trust.

when elephants first arrive at the orphanage they are often traumatized from having witnessed the slaughter of their mothers and family by poachers. grieving can last several months, and they often lose the will to live. but as dame daphne sheldrick, founder of the orphanage, explains, a caretaker is charged with “persuading an elephant to live when it wants to die.”

approximately 35,000 elephants are killed by humans every year. with an estimated 350,000 elephants left in the whole continent of africa, they will be gone in the wild within ten years.

cbc’s the nature of things did a program on the elephants and their caretakers. you can foster an elephant with the david sheldrick wildlife trust online here. for more on the emotional lives of elephants, as well as the david sheldrick wildlife trust and other human efforts to save them, check out these posts

MTV just launched their latest effort to engage (or exploit, depending on who you ask) fandom. Described by Mashable as “a new virtual clubhouse”, The Collective is “a curated space for ‘Teen Wolf’ fans to share and be recognized for their unique content”. While some of the fandom were excited by MTV’s continued effort to engage with its audience, there were just as many (if not more) fans that are skeptical about the site. Panic and misinformation spread like wildfire in fandom so it’s worth while taking a closer look at The Collective to find out what it’s all about.
READ MORE: Teen Wolf Fans are Skeptical About Joining “The Collective”

The more I read about this the more flabbergasted I am that they thought this was a good idea. Just a couple more things to point out that I’m thinking about from reading this article:
The original Mashable article actually features fan art and credits it “courtesy of MTV”. That is EXACTLY the kind of shit I would expect to see going forward from this. If people want to take part, go nuts, but recognize that your art can and probably will be used however MTV wants — and I’m betting that will ultimately mean commercially too — with even your name neatly excised from your own artwork. Apparently that particular artist doesn’t mind, but I’d think through whether you do mind before you put any of your work on this site.
Bear in mind also that official forums/communities/tools tend to disappear when the show does. I’ve been through this so many times with “official” forums and the like… fans use the sites they’re offered to build communities, and then one day, usually without warning, the studios decide to stop spending money on them and they’re gone. There are a lot of good reasons why fandoms tend to build for themselves on independent platforms and this is just one of them. Official spaces also tend to go hand in hand with heavy moderation, which means there are approved and not-approved topics, and criticism is not encouraged and welcomed.
I just really feel like this whole thing is bullshit and kind of insulting tbh.
