    Tilly has a large, red, semi Afro, such hair goes the same place as hair that straight haired, Caucasians go. It says on her head!

    Or she is an android and it retracts when not in use.

    Redheads always have surprises hidden up their sleeve. Or on their epidermis.

    Unless they are still showering in recycled urine, if there is no "drain" with a sonic shower... Where do the hand-fulls of hair go?

    Twilight isn't actually that bad if you assume that they have no idea what they're talking about when they say they're vampires. They're actually some sort of blood-drinking fae that a trickster god pulled one over on with amnesia and lies. ;)

    Can we just put something out in the open...

    CONTEXT IS NOT FOR KINGS!

    Kings just "are".

    Context is for lawyers who need to justify their unusualities to power.

    Kings are power.

    Kings do want they want, and there are no consequences.

    No oversight, checks or balances.

    Contexts is for clever ####s who want to manipulate Kings who do not happen to be smart.

    "sigh"

    Kings are absolute.

    You can laugh all you want, and I've admittedly never read the books, nor would I - but I will tell you that the experience during the surprise twist in the final movie of the series resulted in an energy in the theater unlike anything I've experienced since "A Long Time Ago, In A Galaxy Far Far Away" appeared at the beginning of Episode I. Magic. It may be trashy, but it gained a modicum of respect as entertainment from me that day, anyway. And aside from that, those movies are GREAT *camp*. And where else were you going to see vampires playing baseball with all that that implies? :D

    You need to watch "King Ralph". I feel like your beliefs about monarchy need context. ;)

    Tilly's hair deserves its own forum.

    Tilly is the new Janeway. Both are redheads with hair that has a mind of it's own

    Janeway is not a redhead.

    If Tilly's hair fought Janeway's hair, I'd sell tickets. Although you would have to watch out for scalpers...

    You could really work the crowd into a frenzy:

    "Hair we go! Watch these two wig it out! Two hairs enter, one hair leaves...and there'll be hell toupee!"

    (Tilly's hair would win, BTW.)

    I think if Tilly's hair was up against the first season bun of steel, it would lose. However, I agree that it would most likely prevail against Janeway's do's from season 3 onwards.

    Just watched - they seriously just ripped off the Blink Drive from Dark Matter. Come to think of it, in Dark Matter the use of the Blink Drive even leads to an accidental crossover to an alternate universe. Isn't there supposed to be a mirror universe episode this season?
