Shadow on the Wall


“There are times, Catarina, when I find myself transfixed by a shadow on the wall, or the splashing of water on a stone. I stare at it, the hours pass. The world around me drops away, replaced by worlds being created and destroyed by my imagination.”
Leonardo da Vinci hologram
Star Trek: Voyager, “Scorpion, Part 1”

A little bit about me: My name's Denise. I'm a college student, majoring in theater. Ergo, I love to act! I also like big words and spend large portions of my time writing fan fiction and original works. I'm a proud nerd and you'll probably see a plethora of posts related to my various obsessions!

Speaking of my obsessions, I love:
Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Mythbusters, Teen Titans, the Inheritance Cycle, Syfy's Alice, and other wonderful things that I can't think of right now!

FYI: Most of the images and GIFs aren't mine.

Let me tell you a thing, about an amazing man named Patrick Stewart

I went to Comicpalooza this weekend and I was full of nervous energy as I was standing in line to ask Sir Patrick Stewart a question at his panel. I first had to thank him for a speech he had given at amnesty international about domestic violence towards women . I had only seen it a few months ago but I was still dealing with my own personal experience with a similar issue, and I didn’t know what to call it. After seeing Patrick talk so personally about it I finally was able to correctly call it abuse, in my case sexual abuse that was going to quickly turn into physical abuse as well. I didn’t feel guilty or disgusting anymore. I finally didn’t feel responsible for the abuse that was put upon me. I was finally able to start my healing process and to put that part of my life behind me.

After thanking him I asked him “Besides acting, what are you most proud of that you have done in you life (that you are willing to share with us)?”. Sir Patrick told us about how he couldn’t protect his mother from abuse in his household growing up and so in her name works with an organization called Refuge for safe houses for women and children to escape from abusive house holds. Sir Patrick Stewart learned only last year that his father had actually been suffering from PTSD after he returned from the military and was never properly treated. In his father’s name he works with an organization called Combat Stress to help those soldiers who are suffering from PTSD.

They were about to move onto the next question when Sir Patrick looked at me and asked me “My Dear, are you okay?” I said yes, and that I was finally able to move on from that part of my life. He then passionately said that it is never the woman’s fault in domestic violence, and how wrong to think that it ever is. That it is in the power of men to stop violence towards women. The moderator then asked “Do you want a hug?”

Sir Patrick didn’t even hesitate, he smiled, hopped off the stage and came over to embrace me in a hug. Which he held me there for a long while. He told me “You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now.” I couldn’t stop thanking him. His embrace was so warm and genuine. It was two people, two strangers, supporting and giving love. And when we pulled away he looked strait in my eyes, like he was promising that. He told me to take care. And I will.

Sir Patrick Stewart is an absolute roll model for men. He is an amazing man and was so kind and full of heart. I want to let everyone know to please find help if you are in a violent or abusive house hold or relationship. There are organizations and people ready to help. I had countless people after the panel thanking me for sharing the story and asking him those questions. Many said they went through similar things. You are not alone.

Now, how’s this for a bit of fanboy and fangirl heaven: Patrick Stewart is getting married soon and Ian McKellen will serve as the officiant. Think about it, Captain Picard’s officiant will be Gandalf. Or perhaps it’s Magneto will be Professor Xavier’s officiant. Then again, maybe it’s Death marrying Gurney Halleck.
Any way you slice it, it’s awesome that McKellen, Stewart’s longtime friend, colleague and occasional co-star, will be the man who officiates the wedding between Stewart and his jazz singer fiancée Sunny Ozell. McKellen confirmed the news on the British program the Jonathan Ross Show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He explained to Ross that in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, for a one-time fee of $25, a relative or family friend may perform a wedding ceremony. And, McKellen told Ross, the Stewart-Ozell nuptials won’t be his first time officiating such a joyous event. “I don’t know,” McKellen said. “But in Massachusetts, in the middle of America somewhere, you get a friend along, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married. … I’ve done it once before with two guys having a civil partnership. I was crying my eyes out.
