I got my birthday present a month early so I could actually get some use out of it before it gets cold.

I’m a (almost) 32-year-old woman and I have finally managed to fulfill my life goal of being a mermaid.

This is so cool you don’t even know.

"And how she smiled and how she laughed, the maiden of the tree.
She spun away and said to him, No featherbed for me!
I’ll wear a gown of golden leaves, And bind my hair with grass,
But you can be my forest love, And me your forest lass…”

Kill the idea that naivety is an unforgivable flaw but cynicism is just wisdom, murder it, chop it up and serve it for dinner, I don’t care, just end this bullshit idea that it’s better to hate than to love and better to rot in miserable bitter resignation than to hope for the best.

I made little turtle-shaped (and colored!) sweet buns with butter cookie shells for a friend’s birthday, and I just have to wait for them to cool so I can put them away before bed.

They’re taunting me with their adorableness and delicious smells.

I want to eat their tiny sweet bun heads.

A Letter to the Candle Wasters

Dear thecandlewasters,

One, I would like to say that we all absolutely love NMTD, from the bottom of our hearts. But here’s the thing, we are gOING INSANE FROM THIS RADIO SILENCE. WE LITERALLY WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, AND THE FIRST THING WE DO IS CHECK TO SEE IF YOU’VE UPDATED! THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT OUTCOME! AT THIS POINT I’M PRETTY SURE WE’RE ALL CERTIFIABLY INSANE! AND I APPRECIATE THAT YOU’RE TRYING TO MAKE IT SEEM REAL, BUT WE ARE DYING OVER HERE AND WE WOULD REALLY LIKE IT IF YOU COULD THROW US A BONE!

Thanks for your time!

Sincerely,

The NMTD Fandom :)

Also, I think it’s more than a bit problematic that people are posting other webseries in the tags. That’s the kind of thing I usually see when a show is over.

Now, to be fair, I haven’t seen any webseries that are as good as NMTD there. But…

Content. It’s important.

Also, since I’m just reblogging and only people who follow me or actually check the notes on things will see this, I will say the following:

Realism is overrated in media. Yes, it’s “immersive.” You know what’s also immersive? Caring enough about the characters that we don’t need a “realistic” delay or worry over whether posting a video is completely ethical.

NMTD already has the caring about the characters down. Down in bloody spades.

So I don’t really feel the need for the other stuff be be emphasized. And the more it gets emphasized both by the dead air and the conversations in the tags, the less immersive I find the story.

I agree. Having the main video be a little late, I think that was okay… but by now I think we should have had something, whether from the Bea or from Ben or the Watch. It’s now been six days without a single bit of new content. I think that’s probably too long.

I've switched to victoria--frankenstein, but I wanted to let you know the post I promised yesterday from my friend who works in a lab is up for reading! if you have thoughts, feel free to reblog the post and add on or send an ask. here's a link: victoria--frankenstein(.)tumblr(.)com/post/95384944007/frankenstein-md-issues

Thanks so much! I really liked reading it. I want to get my husband to watch FMD, as he spends a lot of time in a lab, but he’s a clinical pathologist and not a biomedical researcher. Despite standards of lab practice being the same, there isn’t much overlap.

I really hope the writers did their research on the medical school life. The twitters say that Victoria and Iggy are graduating medical school, but there’s no mention of their match day results or getting ready for residency. They might as well have been Phd candidates instead of physicians.
Confessed by anonymous

I hope they did their research as well… or even, y’know… talked to a med student. They’re very easily bribed with free food.
(after Bing, though, my hopes aren’t very high)

I asked, and I think they’ll be trying their best to fit that stuff in. I hope.

Hmmm…. interesting. While I’m glad someone responded to you (I haven’t been so lucky), I’m actually already confused about timetables.
If this show is in real time, Victoria said she would be getting her M.D. “soon.”
It’s August. Lectures/classes for M1 and M2 start about now, rotations for M3 and M4 would have started on July 1st.
Match Day is in March, Graduation is in May-June.
Maybe “soon” is “in 10 months?”

well, now i’m confused, because the pbs site definitely says this show will have 24 episodes and end on halloween. are we supposed to be expecting multiple seasons?

I suspect perhaps their research wasn’t very in-depth…
