The Alnwick Poison Garden is pretty much what you’d think it is: a garden full of plants that can kill you (among many other things). Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. [x]
Also, this just happens to be at actual real life hogwarts.
How about a trip in the TARDIS? I’ll dust it off!
Wait - you can’t just go!
Why not? It’s a free cosmos!
The Brigadier -
The Brigadier wants me to address the Cabinet, have lunch at Downing Street, dinner at the Palace, write seventeen reports in triplicate… Well, I won’t do it! I won’t, I won’t, I won’t!

Rose, before I go, I just want to tell you, you were fantastic.
And do you know what?
So was I.
Men want what they want.
So much of our culture caters to giving men what they want. A high school student invites model Kate Upton to attend his prom, and he’s congratulated for his audacity. A male fan at a Beyoncé concert reaches up to the stage to slap her ass because her ass is there, her ass is magnificent, and he wants to feel it. The science fiction fandom community is once again having a heated discussion, across the Internet, about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment at conventions — countless women are telling all manner of stories about how, without their consent, they are groped, ogled, lured into hotel rooms under false pretenses, physically lifted off the ground, and more.
But men want what they want. We should all lighten up.
It’s hard not to feel humorless as a woman and a feminist, to recognize misogyny in so many forms, some great and some small, and know you’re not imagining things. It’s hard to be told to lighten up because if you lighten up any more, you’re going to float the fuck away. The problem is not that one of these things is happening, it’s that they are all happening, concurrently and constantly.
These are just songs. They are just jokes. They are just movies. It’s just a hug. They’re just breasts. Smile, you’re beautiful. Can’t a man pay you a compliment? In truth, this is all a symptom of a much more virulent cultural sickness — one where women exist to satisfy the whims of men, one where a woman’s worth is consistently diminished or entirely ignored.
It has begun
This great cave, from which countless smaller ones opened out on every side, wound far underground and had many passages and wide halls; but it was lighter than any goblin-dwelling, and neither so deep and dangerous.
The King’s cave was his palace, and the strong place of his treasure, and the fortress of his people against their enemies.
