whatever souls are made of

What do you want to know?   My name is Libby. I'm a 24 year old library sciences graduate student. This is where I post and reblog quotes and pictures and links and videos that I like. Mostly they are about the multitude of shows and books and fandoms I enjoy.

Also, I'm a Hufflepuff, which is most definitely important.

    When I was a kid I thought your 20s were supposed to be fun, not filled with perpetual anxiety about financial stability and constantly feeling like an unaccomplished piece of shit.

The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Aries: This is a week for letting your ideas breathe; this is a week for thinking out loud. This is a week for letting your secret projects and plans out into the world, for letting them stretch their legs, for letting them come alive in the sunlight. Talk through your thoughts with other people. Let your friends show you the things you don’t see; let them show you new ways your brain can move. Try to be brave, try to be generous, and your thoughts can sparkle, they can glow, they can light your way.
 Taurus: This can be a week for making choices, a week for narrowing your focus, a week for remembering that your time and your attention and your life are your own. You don’t have to spread your energy all across the world; you don’t have to give of yourself every time someone asks. You can stop listening to the people who don’t care about you. You can choose what to do with your own days. You can speak your needs out loud. You can listen to your favorite song as many times in a row as you want.
 Gemini: This is a week for dreaming about motion; this is a week for dreaming about flight. This week you can get unstuck from whatever has been holding you in place, and it will feel like you can move through the sky, like you can move through your days, like you’re made of light. You can believe, just for now, that there are no limits on the range of motion available to you. You can believe that everything will always be this easy, that everything will always be okay. Call somebody you miss. Write letters full of bright love.
 Cancer: You can feel the winds shifting this week, you can feel change in the air, you can feel the stars calling out to you at night. The possibilities of your life can open up. You can imagine your way into so many futures and so many lives. This week you can move like light, you can move like sound, you can move like a dream. You don’t have to be solid, you don’t have to be sure, you don’t have to know quite what you’re doing. It’s okay to live in possibilities, for now.
 Leo: When your world gets most strange this week, when you need it most, you can find bright fire buried deep in your heart. You can find a little bit of darkness, you can find a little bit of steely trust in your own self. You can find energy that feels like a forest, you can find energy that feels like the sea, you can find energy that can carry you through anything. You can stand up for yourself, you can believe in your own face in the mirror, you can be so generous with your love.
 Virgo: It might be easy to get frustrated this week, it might be easy to get impatient, it might be easy to feel like your own life is moving too slowly. Try to be patient, even when you want everything all at once. You have so much time. You won’t get left behind and you won’t get stuck. There are stories that can unfold slowly, there are stories so full of texture and sweetness and light, there are stories that can unfold in stranger ways than you can predict. Keep moving, keep living, keep your eyes open.
 Libra: This week you can feel so present in your own skin. You can feel your feet on the ground, you can feel the air on your face, you can hear the song of the world in your ears. You can feel peace if you need peace, you can feel strength if you need strength, you can come into your own. You can find yourself in storms, you can find yourself in mountains, you can find yourself in sweet foggy air. Try to be gentle with the people you care about. Try to be tender with your own self.
 Scorpio: This week you can find your power, you can find your center, you can find your balance again in this weird shaky world. Walk through the streets of your city watch all the life all around you, watch the buildings and the faces and the trees and the concrete. You can be strong enough to get so wild. Listen to the songs that remind you of the rhythm of your own body. Listen to the songs that remind you of your bright voice. Listen to the songs that remind you what your own best confidence feels like.
 Sagittarius: This is a week for stretching your muscles, it’s a week for testing your abilities, it’s a week for taking the wildest flying leaps you can manage. This is a week for doing the things you don’t yet know how to do. You can learn how to move by moving, you can learn how to live by living, you can learn how to speak by speaking. You don’t have to wait for anything. You don’t need permission. You can imagine the life you want into being. You can work magic, just by trying.
 Capricorn: This week, hard work can keep your head clear and your blood flowing. This week, you can get a little lost in the projects that you care about. You can write the stories you need to read, you can sing the songs you need to hear, you can see the world you need taking shape around you. If you keep moving, your vision will be clear and your sleep can be sweet. You can follow the golden stars above your head, you can follow the lights of the city around you, you can follow your own heartbeat home.
 Aquarius: If you start to doubt yourself this week, if you forget what you’re doing or where you’re trying to go, try to trust other people. Try not to stay stuck in your own room, even when it feels hard to go outside. Try not to stay stuck in your own head, even when your own voice sounds like tin in your ears. You can call your friends, you can make food for them, you can sit with them on porches and in parks. You can let the people who care about you call you back to yourself.
 Pisces: This is a week for talismans and charms, this is a week for wearing your softest shirts, this is a week for eating the foods you like most. This is a week for magic you can touch and magic you can see and magic you can carry in your pocket. There’s so much floating through the world, so much movement, so much strangeness, so much feeling, that it’s easy to get a little lost. Try to anchor yourself to the physical world however you can. Let it guide you through your days, let it guide you through your dreams.

    I think we all agree, that this whole Chakotay/Seven romance never happened.

    leftennantaskara:

    True. They got home to Earth, stood back to back on the bridge and shouted:

    "YOU ALL JUST GOT PUNKED MOTHERFUCKERS!"

    And rolled on the floor laughing. 

    Then Janeway jumped him.

    Headcanon installed.

    If you read the non-canon Voyager novels (AND YOU SHOULD BECAUSE THEY’RE AWESOME) that’s basically what happens.

Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)

Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.

    Trekkie Questions

    1. Do you believe that the logic behind the Prime Directive is sound? Discuss.
    2. If you were in a situation where following the Prime Directive would kill millions, but abandoning it would save a planet, would you keep to the Prime Directive?
    3. If you could have any position on a starship, which would you choose?
    4. Which Captain (that has been given a series) would you want to serve under?
    5. If you had the choice between captaining a small science vessel and captaining a large battleship, which would you choose?
    6. Which of the 5 categories (Engineering, Command, Medical, Science, Security) interests you the most?
    7. If you were the Captain of a starship in the same position as the Voyager (stuck in an unexplored sector of the galaxy, 70 light years from home), would you keep to the Prime Directive, knowing that you would not be alive when the ship reached civilization, or would you abandon the Prime Directive, and embrace the possibility of reaching home far quicker?
    8. Would you prefer to live planetside, or in space?
    9. If you were on an away mission, and your communicators suddenly went dead, what would you do?
    10. How patient would you be able to remain in the face of a being that believes itself to be a god?
    11. If there was a war on a planet that you could end with no further casualties, would you end it? Even though doing so would violate the Prime Directive?
    12. Do you believe that the Prime Directive should have elasticity?
    13. If you were not in a position of command, and several officers began exhibiting violent xenophobic tendencies toward non-human members of the crew, what would you do? How about if you knew that neither the Captain nor Starfleet would do anything to stop it?
    14. Would you prefer to be a Captain in a very corrupt government, or an Ensign in a relatively uncorrupted government?
    15. A species on the brink of destruction due to a genophage that harms only that race asks you, the Captain of a starship, for medicine. You can help them, but you know that if you do, in 200 years, they will enslave and kill another race. Do you give them the medicine?
    16. You are far from the Federation, and on a planet, when you receive a transmission. The transmission informs you that 50 armed and dangerous savages have taken one of your away teams consisting of 8 people hostage. The savages demand your ships CMO in exchange for your away team. If you do not comply, they will execute their hostages. What do you do? Does your answer change if their hostages are not your crewmembers, but natives to that planet?
    17. You and two crewmembers are stranded on a class-M planet. None of you are particularly valuable members. The planet has many dangerous animals that will, given time, kill you. The starship you serve on has just been called to deliver medicine to a colony in dire need. Because of the nature of this particular class-M planet, it will take some time to rescue you. However, the colony will be completely wiped out if the starship doesn't haul ass halfway across the quadrant. Do you demand that they waste precious time, and lives, rescuing you, or do you sacrifice yourself and your two teammates to save the colony?
    18. What improvements do you think could be made to the way the Federation runs? Do you consider the Federation to be corrupted and xenophobic, given that most high-ranking officers are human males originating from a certain area of Earth?
    19. Would you trust yourself with the Captaincy of a starship carrying over 1,000 crewmembers?
    20. Given the existence of non-hostile aliens, do you believe that an organization akin to the Federation would appear between said aliens and humans?
