GO WATCH THIS SHOW, HONESTLY IT IS SO AMAZING. 

IF THIS POST CREATES 1 NEW PUSHING DAISIES FAN MY LIFE = MADE. 

Alright let me help out then:

1) Most of the cast is female. In fact only two main characters are male.

2) Both male characters take typically non-masculine hobbies. Emerson Cod knits almost non-stop and makes pop-up books. Ned is literally called “The Pie-Maker” because he bakes homestyle pies from his mother’s method. Both are shown to be very nurturing and even maternal characters. Conversely, the women? A pair of professional travelling show performers that have gritty sexual scandals the way men usually get (see the entire “Chuck’s father” storylines), a beekeeper who is the single most positive and optimistic character imaginable, and a former professional jockey- Three of four pro athletes.

3) You could very easily make the claim Ned is asexual.

4) Yes, the storyline is about romance. But it’s also about the positive side of a love story, and their only drama lies in overcoming their inability to actually share contact.

5) A very good friend of mine recommended this show to me as “Disney for adults.” I told her it was already on my list to watch because “It’s by Bryan Fuller, from Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me.” Bryan Fuller is now most known for “Hannibal.” The same camera methods and bright colours and lighting techniques Hannibal is known for? Perfected in this show, just using a different tone- The same colour methods in reverse, upping the vivid greens and yellows instead of reds and blues, which sells emotion both ways.

7) Probably one of the best examples of a modern day fairy tale possible.

8) Narrated by Jim Dale- The narrator for the HP audio books.

Today I’m blogging from the skies, as we fly through the turbulence from China to Osaka, Japan. Our time in Beijing went far too quickly - we definitely underestimated how much there was to see and do, and lost even more time to unforeseen circumstances. As a result we left more things…

Hercules at the Feet of Omphale. 1912. Gustave Claude Etienne Courtois. French 1853-1923. oil/canvas.

a rare reversal of the nude lady hangin’ out around fully clothed dudes?
1912 beefcakes? I guess?

oh hey I know this story! so Hercules had this habit of getting drunk and/or pissed off and killing random dudes, like, the famous labors of Hercules were just one of the MANY MANY punishments handed down to him for killing people because he was a dumb jerk with super-strength
so anyway this time around they made him a queen’s slave for a year or maybe seven, depends, and ever since that story was first told people with a thing for fem dom/male sub have used it in their art and writing because here’s the strongest man in the world under a woman’s sway, doing her weaving and laundry and, in some versions, even dressing in her clothing while she wore his
so yeah, what this is is a 1912 update of ancient Grecian kink


This story is better than the one I made up in a past reblog.
