Only Regina Mills would be digging with a skirt.
Digging in a skirt AND scarf AND holding a map under her arm. Like girl you are a MESS.

I went through all the episodes with the vision, and was again impressed at how well sown it was into the whole season, but what eventually struck me was how there were at least two different forms of the visions and then a different version for Ides of March. And that in turn made me wonder if their actions DID have tiny impacts on their future and maybe they could have done something to avoid it.
Or maybe every path led here.
So far adulthood is just going grocery shopping, realizing you didn’t plan well or logically, going grocery shopping again, repeat ad infinitum. 0/10 stars, would not recommend
This post is still getting hundreds of notes a day and I am…
#Do you ever just cry because of Gabrielle’s character arc? #She started out so naïve and wide-eyed saying that she wanted to grow up to be just like Xena #and while her admiration for Xena never diminished her understanding of what it meant to be Xena—to be #a warrior like her—matured #The more Gabrielle traveled the more she saw the more she fought the more she realized #that Xena’s heroism was not without a price: #fighting changed things; #killing changed everything; #and living on the battlefront sometimes necessitated terrible impossible choices #After a while the prospect of giving up so many of her original ideals scared Gabrielle so she ran away— #tried to give up the fighting and killing; tried to walk a path of love and peace #But then there was always Xena—Xena who Gabrielle couldn’t forsake even if she wanted to forsake #the path that following Xena had set her on #Gabrielle couldn’t leave Xena’s side even though she knew that anyone who traveled with Xena had to fight #It came down to another impossible choice so Gabrielle chose Xena and never looked back #It was following that path—which Gabrielle called friendship—which led to the fulfillment of Gabrielle’s #original wish: that she grow up to be just like Xena; to be a warrior like her #Year after year season after season Gabrielle gave up more and more and increasingly became a warrior #That’s why the end of the show is so haunting: #Gabrielle gets exactly what she wanted from the start but ultimately it isn’t what she wants anymore at all #She is as capable as Xena as skilled and even as ruthless and unflinching as she #and yet all she could want in the world is to go back to being that naïve and wide-eyed little girl #that Xena found in Potiedaea—the one Xena fell in love with all those years ago #It’s a shocking reversal and one that is so carefully wrought over so many years #I just… damn
In my opinion, one of the best things humanity has captured on video. Done in 1979 by Voyager 1 as it approached Jupiter.

Lena Headey always dresses like the head of a vaguely post-apocalyptic punk enclave who has to dress well because the punk enclave demands it but who has clearly barely ground out her cigarette butt on the hand of a willing underling before the picture was taken.
…until the hovering, curious dominant of their separate lives should resolve into a tonic of darkness and the final absence of all motion.

Depression is the inability to construct a future.
Rollo May (1909-1994), American existential psychologist. “Love and Will”, ch. 9 (1969). (via Wikiquote)
Depression distorts time and thought. Depression raises mountains out of the flat plains and transmutes the familiar into the frightening. Depression saps and drains, extracting a psychic tax for the most commonplace actions and thoughts — like feigning wellbeing. Depression lies.
