➥ Looking for Alaska, by John Green

You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.

alaskayoung asked: Camelot’s Castle or Morgana’s Hovel

"Morgana’s hovel is a small, poor, rough and possibly temporary hideout in which Morgana has lived since Arthur’s rebellion against her reign. This shelter is made of one single room, with a bed, a table, a fireplace and different shelves and cupboards, with numerous objects (possibly instruments of magic). This place is hidden among rocks and trees and most of it is carved in the stone, making it similar to a cave.” (X)


I didn’t know whether to trust Alaska, and I’d certainly had enough of her unpredictability - cold one day, sweet the next; irresistibly flirty one moment, resistibly obnoxious the next.

- Looking for Alaska, by John Green

Che poi per la gente io sono come Alaska Young. Sono complicata. Sono il labirinto dentro cui tutti si perdono. Sono calda e fredda, sono forte e debole, sono amore e odio, sono coraggio e paura, sono me stessa e qualcun’altro, sono tutto e niente, sono il bene e il male. Sono così.
