Aldwych station is one of many disused stations on the London Underground network. The station opened in 1907 under its original name ‘Strand’ as a branch of the Piccadilly line south of Holborn but was never heavily used, and after facing multiple closures during its lifespan the doors to Aldwych were finally closed in 1994.

Despite being in use for 87 years the station was never fully finished; only one set of stairs and passages to the platforms, and about half the platform area, was fully completed. Some of the unfinished areas have since been used to experiment with tiling and fixtures when planning décor for other stations on the network. 

During the Blitz in the 1940’s the station was used as an air raid shelter and housed up to 1500 people, to control numbers only those with valid tickets could enter. Valuable artwork from various museums was also stored in the station for protection during this period, including the Elgin Marbles from the British Museum. 

Since its closure the station has been used as a filming location for film and TV productions, often disguised as other stations on the tube to avoid disruption. Productions featuring Aldwych include Atonement (2007), V for Vendetta (2005), The Edge of Love (2008), 28 Weeks Later (2007) and the music video for the Prodigy’s ‘Firestarter’. 

Due to its historical significance, Aldwych station is now as Grade II listed building.

Ty: I pretty much think this about Zane at all hours of the day and night, but anyway….

Zane: And this is pretty much how I see Ty at all hours of the day and night.

Ty: Asshole.

Nick: I have literally grabbed Kelly by the ankles and pulled him out of bed before, without waking him.

Kelly: Aw, Nick doesn’t really have a morning routine. So here’s Nick 24/7!

Okay but after seeing this I started doing it too and it’s amazing how many men I’ve run into bc they expected me to move

Gotta try it

I work (and walk) on a college campus. I’ve lost count of how many men I’ve smacked shoulders with.

Recently, I was standing outside my son’s classroom waiting to talk to his teacher. I stood on one side of the hallway, not even close to the center. At some point, a man came walking along. I was standing right in his path, but the hallway was empty, so I logically expected him to swerve around me. Instead he kept walking right toward me, got to me, and stopped, as if waiting for me to get out of his way. I didn’t; I just smiled politely at him. He finally walked around me, clearly annoyed that I hadn’t leapt out of his manly path.

Now I’m wishing I’d leapt aside, taken off my jacket and laid it on the floor before him, then bowed deeply and said, “My Liege!”

I also work at a college campus. I smack shoulders sometimes, but I find that if I stare straight ahead and follow the advice below, people get the heck out of the way.

Honestly this post changed how I carry myself when walking alone in public, or in a situation where I’m the one leading. People definitely move for the murder gaze.

Confirmed. I once had to rush back inside a convention hall as the con was closing in order to a retrieve a sick friend’s medication, and I didn’t understand why people in the crowd were jumping out of my way (literally—one guy vaulted a table) until I realized I was dressed as the Winter Soldier and doing the Murder Walk because that’s just how I walk in those boots. I got the meds, got out, and made a mental note.

I repeated the experiment later, wearing the boots but otherwise my usual clothing and mimicking the expression I thought I’d had at that moment. People parted like I was Charlton Heston.

I now wear that style of boots whenever possible. I recently had a man do a double-take as I walked by and ask me, politely, where I had served because I “looked like a soldier.” I’m not current or former military. I was wearing a flowy purple peasant top and looked as un-soldierlike as possible.

Moral of the story: wear comfortable shoes, square your shoulders, and walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America.

WALK LIKE YOU’VE BEEN SENT TO MURDER CAPTAIN AMERICA

I still can’t believe that fanfiction is free

I sometimes have to pay for water, but with a phone and some wifi, I get to read whole novels about my favorite characters for exactly zero additional dollars

How goddamn rad is that

all the love to the fanfic authors who make this possible, y’all are the best
