Lady Edith and the Footman

A page devoted to Downton Abbey (obviously), Loki, and some occasional anime. I also make Downton Abbey captions once in a blue moon. Also K-dramas.

It gets better—the guy is deaf, and he taught his cat the sign for “food.” So the cat’s not just saying “put that in my mouth,” it’s actually signing

Not only that, but if you notice at the beginning, the cat *gets the man’s attention* as any person who wanted to talk to a deaf/hoh individual would (well, and vice versa IME). I’ve done sign since I was 5, and generally, w/o eye contact initially, you wave a hand or lightly touch the arm (if that’s ok with the person you’re trying to converse with, of course). Generally, adult cats meow mostly to humans, but this cat has figured out that’s not going to work and has adapted. Animal companions! They are INCREDIBLE.

Amazing.

EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LOOK AT THIS CAT.

this is pretty remarkable

He runs both hands through his hair and closes his eyes briefly, as if he’s seeking divine guidance of some kind.

Allow me, if I may, to read from Second Snarkalonians, chapter seven, verses one through five:

1    Then the Lord spake unto Christian, and said unto him, Thou seekest my council.
2    And Christian answered him, Lord, I know not what to do.
3    Then the Lord said, Thou art a total buttface, and shouldst commit thyself unto the care of a mental institution until thou stoppest being a danger to thyself and others.
4     And also I say unto thee, that I have placed upon this earth such volumes of knowledge as should teach thee in the ways of not being a terrible Dom. This I have done for love of you.
5     Also I say unto thee, truly, thou art a douchebag. I know not what I was thinking when I made thee.

Here endeth the lesson.

MSP- I think I need to take some sass lessons so I can try to reach this level of pure, beautiful snark.

Anonymous asked: I agree with you and the anon. The screenplay is at some fault and Kristen did understand her character its just that I felt like she looked nothing like Bella and that her facial expressions were way off. The illustrated guide is the only thing that did justice to bella

I actually haven’t spent much time looking at the illustrated guide but I am glad you feel that it has a good portrayal of Bella.  I honestly have a whole list of problems with the movies but I’ve sort of made my piece with it.

Out of curiosity, what problems did you have? I’ve been thinking the books were better, too.

Aside from the usual ‘that line needed to be in the movie!’s and ‘they left this part out!’s and even the ‘that never happened in the books!’s, I’ve recently (well, sometime in the past month or so) come to the conclusion that the movie’s took themselves too seriously on the whole.  There was a lightness and a sense of humor in the books that I really missed when watching the movies.  And I tend to think that a lot of the screenplay/script (particularly in Eclipse) worked in Jacob’s favor.

Ah, that’s kind of my problem too. Also, the movies took some of the dialogue out of context.

I haven’t seen Eclipse yet, but wow. Jacob was a huge jerk in that book. I guess they were trying to make Team Jacob happy.
