my main question is has anyone ever fantasized about having sex with me


"Well, the question is, how can you know anything about an extinct ecosystem? And therefore, how could you ever assume that you can control it? I mean, you have plants in this building that are poisonous, you picked them because they look good, but these are aggressive living things that have no idea what century they’re in, and they’ll defend themselves, violently if necessary." Jurassic Park (1993)

The space between them curves like an hourglass; distance between their faces as she smirks up at him, dwindling toward their hips as she sways forward ever so slightly, and widening where his bandy legs fall backward just a pinch. It’s like watching a dance — River steps forward, smiles, bats her eyelashes, says something; and the Doctor steps back. The negative space is constantly in flux, and they seem to spin around the room. Rory drums his fingers against the table, squinting at them. On one hand River’s his daughter, and he wants to strangle the Doctor for the way he seems to shy away from her in their little waltz, but on the other hand he knows River. Well, not River, not necessarily, but he knew Mels. And he does know River a bit. Her loyalty to the Doctor must be earned — she’s his daughter, after all.

verb tenses with timelines via amandaonwriting

Technically speaking, most of these distinctions refer to the combination of tense and aspect rather than just tense. While tense is when a verb takes place (e.g. past, present, future), aspect is how the verb relates to the flow of time. From Wikipedia: 

Perfective aspect is used in referring to an event conceived as bounded and unitary, without reference to any flow of time during it (“I helped him”). Imperfective aspect is used for situations conceived as existing continuously or repetitively as time flows (“I was helping him”; “I used to help people”). Further distinctions can be made, for example, to distinguish states and ongoing actions (continuous and progressive aspects) from repetitive actions (habitual aspect).
Certain aspectual distinctions express a relation in time between the event and the time of reference. This is the case with the perfect aspect, which indicates that an event occurred prior to (but has continuing relevance at) the time of reference: “I have eaten”; “I had eaten”; “I will have eaten”.

Tense, aspect, and mood (e.g. infinitive, imperative, interrogative, subjunctive, etc.) are often grouped together under the acronym TAM because they’re interrelated in many languages.
