Lifehack: if you go into the theaters with the mindset that books and movies are different forms of entertainment you’ll be a lot happier in life

     ↳ Harry and Hermione at Godric’s Hollow

Hermione had taken his hand again and was gripping it tightly. He could not look at her, but returned the pressure, now taking deep, sharp gulps of air, trying to steady himself, trying to regain control. He should have brought something to give them, and he had not thought of it, and every plant in the graveyard was leafless and frozen. But Hermione raised her wand, moved it in a circle through the air and a wreath of Christmas roses bloomed before them. Harry caught it and laid it on his parents’ grave.

As soon as he stood up, he wanted to leave: he did not think he could stand another moment there. He put his arm around Hermione’s shoulders, and she put hers around his waist, and they turned in silence and walked away through the snow, past Dumbledore’s mother and sister, back towards the dark church and the out-of-sight kissing gate.

Stars are beautiful, but they may not take an active part in anything, they must just look on for ever. It is a punishment put on them for something they did so long ago that no star now knows what it was. So the older ones have become glassy-eyed and seldom speak (winking is the star language), but the little ones still wonder.

There’s a place in most of us where the rain is pretty much constant, the shadows are always long, and the woods are full of monsters. It is good to have a voice in which the terrors of such a place can be articulated and its geography partially described, without denying the sunshine and clarity that fill so much of our ordinary lives.
—  Stephen King, The Long Walk

Oh, how she did like that queer, common boy!

PSA: just because a person likes Hannibal, it does NOT mean:

  • that they promote murders, serial killings, and/or cannibalism
  • that they glorify murderers, serial killers, and/or cannibals
  • that they believe that killing and/or eating someone is something to aspire to
  • that they have a secret desire to murder and/or cannibalize
  • that they are misogynists [because serial killers have a tendency to set up a target pattern that involves women]
  • that they have any particular political view (ie, anarchy, social/political Darwinism, neoliberalism, and/or nihilism, as I’ve seen mentioned many times in anti-Hannibal posts)

What it DOES mean:

  • that they like the show Hannibal

what was my life before lgbt books? seriously. my life and reading experience has improved by 100% since i started seeking lgbt books. i didn’t realise how much i needed them until i got them. support lgbt authors and books, you guys. there’s so many of them. but people look at YA and think the only books you get are about straight white people. but that’s not true at all. books with diverse characters are there. they just need more support and exposure so they can reach more people.

So that post about how when you don’t know a word in a book and you just read it ahkdjhjkhafdja in your head, and then when its a name and you have to do that for the whole book? Yeah that’s basically me in every sentence of the Silmarillion though like

"And then Hadfjjd came to JhKjgsks with their people and they were called the Askdjhg and then Yavanna did something and then Hkjajfak in Middle-earth went to Kjhjfdsha which was also called Gjksdhfs and Fkjafah. "

"When I can get away by myself, that’s how I recharge. Having that balance to touring and traveling and playing live shows really juxtaposes with my slow lifestyle at home."
