I’m all wrapped up in sunshine

Underneath a sky of blue

I’m sailin’ on a sunbeam on my way to you

OKAY LISTEN UP MOTHERFUCKERS. Like so many in fandom, I am a huge ass sucker for the found families/created families trope. You wave that flag in front of me and I am charging in, no holds barred. And “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries” has the found families trope nailed down, screwed in, and welded on. It’s fuckin’ amazing.

Instead of going picture by picture, I’ll just explain everybody and let you figure out who’s who (hint: it’s pretty obvious):

Aunt Prudence - the only one (along with her son) actually related to Phryne. Comes from old money and disapproves of her nieces shenaniganery, but helps a lot with various investigations. Is surprisingly awesome. Sits on the board of the hospital that employs…

Dr. Elizabeth “Mac” MacMillan - tweed-wearing, medical-degree-having, lesbian-being BFF of Phryne and has been since they were kids. Takes zero shit and gives zero fucks; the pilot episode has her and Phryne “testing” some coke they find, because YOLO essentially. She is basically my moon and stars. Treats a patient that’s brought to her hospital by…

Cec and Bert - if they have real names, I don’t know them, and that’s probably the way they’d like it. They are, no lie, commie-loving cab drivers who are occasionally employed by Phryne to do various odd jobs (of varying legality); they’ve also been known to hire Phryne themselves. They do everything from work as extras on a film to acting as waiters for a last-minute soiree. They are grumpy bickering assholes who adore…

Jane Fisher - foster-daughter (and now adopted daughter) of Phryne, who hates children but adores Jane. Found stowing away in a train after stealing valuable jewelry, so obviously Phryne loves her to death. Is incredibly smart and has a tendency to either stab or punch people she doesn’t like. Is close friends with…

Mr. Butler - which is actually his last name, amazingly; he’s the butler of the house, but is also the confidant, advisor, and supplier of munitions in any situation that calls for firepower. Has a tendency to get drugged at least once a season, but he doesn’t seem to mind much. Shares household responsibilities with…

Dot Williams - a former maid who was falsely accused of murder; hired by Phryne as her companion/social secretary/co-detective in the first episode after she conquered her fear of the telephone. Incredibly devout, deeply empathetic, and has been known to hold her boyfriend at gunpoint. Speaking of whom…

Hugh Collins - bright-eyed and bushy-tailed constable for the police; kind of personifies the “failing upwards” trope, but he’s like the labrador of the bunch and you really can’t hate him. Also looks really good without his shirt on. I’m just saying. Subordinate to…

Jack Robinson - described at one point as “the man with the dulcet tones,” AND BOY HOWDY IT’S TRUE. Detective Inspector, coin-collector, bicyclist, and at this point a professional Phryne Fisher fancier. If I could have sexual relations with someone’s voice, this is the dude I’d choose because seriously Jesus fuck.

And there you have it - the family that makes up the core of this show. They don’t always get along - they don’t even always like each other that much - but they are all part of Phryne’s family, and she risks her life for them (and they risk their lives for her) and at the end of the day, that’s a pretty good demonstration of love.

44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.

Bless you

I WENT FOR THE TALKING RACCOON MOTHAFUCKAS

Why should i go for Chris Pratt in it, i didn’t even know who he was before, but hello there is a SPEAKING AND WALKING TREE IN IT? AND A LOT OF PENG PENG PEW PEW AND I LOVE THOSE THINGS?

YOU’VE BEEN SEDUCED BY DOCTOR DANIEL CASTELLANO

Yesterday, a teacher at my daughter’s preschool told me that she saw two boys and a girl spinning the knobs of a play oven. Boy #1 says: “I’m a pilot! I’m flying a plane.’ Boy #2 says: “Me too!” The girl is quiet, so the teacher says to her: “What about you, are you a pilot?” The 3 year old girl replies: “I can’t be a pilot. I’m a pilot’s wife.”

So what do you think has happened in this little girl’s short life to make her believe it’s more likely that she would be a pilot’s wife than a pilot?
