everyone has that one celebrity where no matter how shitty of a day you’re having just seeing their face or hearing their voice makes you smile and for that split second you forget about your reality and are taken away to that made up world in your head where it’s just you and them
In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.

(maybe. LIKELY)JEALOUS OLIVER?! OLIVER MEETING FELICITY’S MAMA?!
SERIOUSLY! THIS IS PERFECT!
STARTED WITH A SIMPLE “FELICITY SMOAK? HI, I’M OLIVER QUEEN”
TO “YOU NEED TO BE IN MY BED”
I just had a thought that if Graham Norton ever does one show where Tom Hiddleston, Michael Fassbender, James Mcavoy and Benedict Cumberbatch all appear as guests, the fabric of reality will probably crack starting with Tumblr exploding creating a secondary big bang.
