Tom Hardy with a picture of his relative Lieutenant Leonard Hardy - photographed by Rich Hardcastle as part of a campaign:

The Royal British Legion has launched a campaign to help people pay tribute to each of the 1,117,077 Commonwealth servicemen and women who died in the First World War. The Every Man Remembered initiative - backed by stars of the stage, screen and the world of business - was unveiled today to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the war.

It is an online database that allows people to pay tribute to people with whom they are connected or to find someone who has no-one to commemorate them.

Renowned figures from entertainment, arts and business have already hailed some of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Actor Tom Hardy, Downton Abbey creator Lord Julian Fellowes, TV historian Dan Snow and West Ham United vice chairman Karren Brady are among those who have been photographed holding pictures of fallen First World War servicemen they are connected to.

Dr Stephen Clarke, head of remembrance at the Legion, said: “Every Man Remembered will be our greatest act of remembrance during the First World War centenary.

"We’re asking the British public to commemorate every one of the 1,117,077 men and women who died during the First World War through our huge online database.

"You can look up a family member, namesake, or make a random search - the important thing is that not a single one of them is left without a dedication and recognition of the role they played in providing the freedom we have today."

Users can find someone who was in their family, or who shares their name, age, workplace, birthday or home town.

The campaign was inspired by a British Explorer Scout who visited a war cemetery in Belgium and wrote to the Legion asking why some of the graves had dozens of poppies and crosses next to them, while others had none.

Dr Clarke added: “The support The Royal British Legion provides is just as important for our armed forces today as it was when the charity was founded after the First World War.

"Every Man Remembered will help us make a real connection to those who died 100 years ago and support those who continue to serve."

A bit more from The Telegraph about Lt. Hardy -

"Lieutenant Leonard Basil Hardy, who, after training at Sandhurst was posted to France in January 1915, where he died just over a month later aged 19."

Do you know what fandom has done for me?

Fandom made me feel normal. Fandom taught me about myself, taught me sexuality and gender and taught me that I don’t have to listen to people when they tell me I’m too harsh on men or that my expectations are too high. It gave me people to talk to when I felt alone and it gave me a voice when I thought I didn’t have one.

But more than anything, fandom has given me fanfiction.

I’ve been writing fic since I was twelve. I wasn’t any good in the beginning - none of us are - but fanfiction and the constant feedback helped me to realize the pitfalls of my writing, the tactics I fell back on again and again.

Fanfiction taught me how to develop a world. It taught me how to develop characters as individuals, it taught me about character flaws and character strengths, and about motive and emotion and so many other things.

Fanfiction has given me a expansive vocabulary that surprises most people.

Fanfiction has allowed me to explore sexuality and gender and kinks to my heart’s desire and all without ever having to face the judgmental looks of the real world. Because I am a female and a female shouldn’t have these thoughts or urges, a “proper female” should not know about the things I know about.

You know what else fandom and fanfiction has done? It told me otherwise. It told me that I was beautiful and perfect just the way I am. I don’t need to change and I don’t need to be ashamed and anyone who makes me feel like that is an asshole.

You might not think I’m a good writer and that’s okay. On my worst days, I’d agree with you. But in my bones, I know I was born to do this one thing. I was born to write and fanfiction continues to help me develop this skill into something I can hopefully call my career one day.

Fandom is the breeding ground for the next generation of authors and screenwriters and fanfiction is the tool we use to get better.

So don’t you dare mock fandom and don’t you dare mock fanfiction because it is so much more important than your shitty television show will ever be.

When Jack is preparing to draw Rose, he says to her, “Lie on that bed, uh, I mean couch.” The line was scripted “Lie on that couch”, but Leonardo DiCaprio made an honest mistake and James Cameron liked it so much he kept it in.

bay area girls rock camp 2014

i am super lucky.  i was invited to photograph one of the summer sessions at this year’s girls rock camp.  it was so badass to see these girls form bands and write music.  they all had so much energy and attitude, it was incredible.  i didn’t ask them to pose or anything, these shots were their own doing, all i had to do was just press a button.

s/o to morningriser and jaimes-world for putting in a good word for me.
