so i’m watching some idiot show on syfy about nerd weddings
and there’s this woman going on about how she wants a GoT themed wedding
and i’m just like
are you sure
are you really sure about that
point one: she literally says they aren’t having a red wedding. they both know their fandoms.
point two: she wanted a middle earth/game of thrones wedding, ie, the setting of her wedding, not the damn theme. And it ends up looking more middle earth than game of thrones anyways, except for the GAME OF THRONES THRONE THAT THEY SIT ON AT THE RECEPTION.
point three: SHE WANTS A NERD WEDDING. SHE WENT OUT AND GOT HERSELF A NERD HUSBAND ON FINAL FANTASY XI AND THEY’VE BEEN TOGETHER 8 YEARS AND WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU CALL THAT AN IDIOT SHOW
point four: everyone’s in cosplay. everyone. and if they weren’t in cosplay, they had a whole fucking tent full of costumes and accessories to make sure you were in cosplay.
point five and possible spoiler if you haven’t seen my big fat geek wedding yet: she has fucking khal drogo and daenerys and a fucking dragon at her wedding AND HER HUSBAND AND LEGOLAS TAKE DOWN KHAL DROGO and even her family who hasn’t always been the most supportive dresses up, and she has a hawk ring bearer, and if you think that wedding wouldn’t be the shit then why are you even watching a show about nerd weddings in the first damn place.
td;lr: go watch my big fat geek wedding because it’s a damn awesome show and i hope to god they make a whole season because i would kill to have that kind of job. IT’S LIKE YOUR OWN PERSONAL CONVENTION ALMOST.

April 21, 1989: Tiananmen Square Protests Begin
On this day in 1989, students began protesting in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, the symbolic central space of China. Several weeks later, when the government sent in the army to end the demonstrations, the citizens of Beijing poured into the streets in support of the students.
The demonstrations ended in a massacre on the night of June 3-4, when the government sent the troops into the city with orders to clear Tiananmen Square. One day later, a single, unarmed young man stood his ground before a column of tanks on the Avenue of Eternal Peace. Captured on film and video by Western journalists, this extraordinary confrontation became an icon of the struggle for freedom around the world.
In 2012, FRONTLINE took a look back at how the iconic image of the “tank man” came to be, more than twenty years after the massacre at Tiananmen Square.
