BREAKING NEWS: The Hardy Boys are back and better then ever!
I used to have trouble sleeping, then I read people on this blog talking about using MST3K as a sleep aid. I decided to give it a try and I’ve never slept better. Just another reason to be thankful for this show.
I do this every night. It always makes me feel safe and loved.

roses-for-roses-filth-for-filth said: Headcanons: Mina Murray.
1. She’s of mixed descent. Her father was born in Ireland, but is suspected by her conservative English maternal relatives of being of any number of even more unacceptable backgrounds, which led them to sever ties with her mother after her marriage and to have a less-than-affectionate reaction to Mina, herself, after she was orphaned and placed in an aunt’s care. While Mina would probably be seen as white a sizable portion of the time in modern America, she looks distinctly “foreign” to the Victorian gaze, and spent a lot of time feeling self-conscious of her dark complexion as a young girl.
2. She has a natural knack for puzzles, mathematics, and languages, and she taught herself sufficient German and Latin to read with, in addition to the mandatory boarding school French she received. Jonathan’s semi-fluency in German was partially cultivated to impress her.
3. Her distaste for the “New Woman” is partially rooted in the insecurity of her class standing, as many of the writers invested in the movement had the ability to voluntarilly opt out of the traditional roles of wife and mother, whereas she spent a significant amount of her life being self-sufficient out of necessity and wasn’t entirely sure she would ever have a chance to opt in. Her feelings on the matter, however, were never neatly defined. At the beginning of the novel, she was already a firm supporter of women’s access to work and reforms to marriage law, but was simultaniously appalled by the tactics of suffragettes and by the content of sexually frank proto-feminist sensation novels. Her attitudes later shifted considerably with the times, although she was never entirely comfortable with some parts of the early woman’s movement.

incurablenecromantic said: Mina and Jonathan Harker. ☠, ☯, ☮
☠ (drinking/drunk headcanons)
- Jonathan is probably a more robust drinker than people would think, but he has the kind of standard effusive Victorian attitude toward social drinking as something for celebration and good company rather than grief-drinking (which is probably good for him).
- Mina has a secret archive of carefully curated recipes for different kinds of punch and things that she probably inherited at least some of and she fully intends to make all of them some day.
☯ (genderbent headcanons)
- Do you know how excited fem!Jonathan is to learn how to use a typewriter? Very. Very, very excited. Her handwriting is really small and she writes so much vaguely sentimental poetry about dead relatives.
- dude!Mina might be preparing for clergy stuff, but the intricacies of who can marry and who’s celibate in Church of England stuff, especially in the 19th century, is completely baffling to me so I don’t know how that would work out. Mina’s the more progressive of the two of them, though introspective about this, so at any rate he’d be a very progressive cleric.
☮ (bedroom/living space headcanon)
- Jonathan has the more romantic interior design sense out of the two of them — the whole thing about sighing medieval ladies writing letters, what a nerd! — and I think if he felt he were allowed he would tack up postcards and scarves and things.
- Mina’s wardrobe isn’t very big and it’s really well organized but she keeps saving the boxes that hats and shoes come in under the persistent misbelief that she needs them for storage and nope her storage spaces are all full of empty boxes (maybe she can make a craft project? who knows)
NEVER trust an adult who won’t apologize to a child
Wow. I’d never seen it put that way, but. Wow. That is a really good piece of advice.
