Holiday greetings to Fringies and my followers
Aww….loving this so much!
Fringe is nominated in 2 categories in the TV.com’s Best of 2013!
Fringies, let’s vote! :D
One year ago today: final FRINGE set visit (AKA a few reporters and publicists took over the set and took a ridiculous amount of nerdy photos, most of which will probably never see the light of day) during the day and then the 100th episode/series finale carpet later that night. Crazy how time flies by. So thankful so many of the disgustingly talented people associated with the show have gone on to continue to work in TV. (Waiting on you, Blair Brown, to return to my TV. Everyone else in the photo above has been on TV since/is potentially in something new.) And still ridiculously thankful to have the opportunity to be up in Vancouver last year to say goodbye to the show.
Thanks for this. :-) So jealous though! :’(
I’m furious with pro-ana people ripping out quotes from Wintergirls and posting them to help others starve themselves. Isolating a line from a book that distorts the meaning of that book is obscene. That’s what book censors do.
Stop that shit now.
Anorexia is the most fatal of all mental illnesses. There is nothing empowering or cute or sexy about it. It’s a disease that kills, ruins lives, and ravages families. I wrote Wintergirls to show the horrifying damage of the disease, and how people struggling with it can reach for help and hope.
A lot of pro-ana people feel lost and depressed and lonely. I understand those feelings. Been there, lived that. They think they’ve found a community that will support them. I understand that, too. But listen up: people who truly support you don’t want you dead.
I don’t care what your body size is. I care about the health of your body and of your soul. I want you to feel supported and loved and valued. I want you to be strong enough to claim your place in the world, and to make the world even better.
Help me reach out to people who are trapped in their eating disorders. Help me reach out to the pro-ana community with love and show them other communities that can help them through rough times.
Let’s stop buying into the bullshit fed to us by media empires and fashion designers and other corporate overlords. Let’s stop hating on each other for the size of our thighs or our butts.
It’s the size of your heart that matters.
PS: To those saying that being against pro-ana is another form of body hate: it’s not. I’m against smoking meth and shooting heroin for the same reasons - they are addictive dangerous behaviors that kill people.
What do you think?
3.06 “The Abducted”
Escape from Liberty Island attempt #1
"I just saw a woman disappear in front of my eyes! Her name was Olivia. She has a message for you. She’s trapped in the other universe."
which name is canon, altlivia, fauxlivia or bolivia? because the people on the show call her fauxlivia but the subtitles call her bolivia and altlivia is a pretty awesome name
what to do
That’s the name that TPTB first came up with. Because the Alternate Universe was referred to as Universe B and Prime Universe as Universe A.
So the Olivia from Universe B became B-Olivia = Bolivia.
However, even TPTB eventually started calling her Fauxlivia. But yeah “officially” it is Bolivia.
But fanon it’s Fauxlivia in the first timeline (S1-S3) and Altlivia in the new timeline (S4-S5) or sometimes both. Usually fans only refer to her a Fauxlivia while she is pretending to be Olivia aka “The Affair with Peter”.
