The Wings of the Dove

paradise-missy asked:

"You've run so far and so long. I feel the ache and the exhausted burn in your bones..." she said gently holding his head in her hands and pressing her forehead against his. Her thoughts then gently fluttered against his psyche's pleasure center like the wings of a dove. "Hello my Doctor... how I've missed you... how I've wanted to make you mine..."

He didn’t moved from the touch, after the last couple…touches she had inflicted on him, this was surprisingly nice.

And then he shuddered, giving a low moan at the gentle brush, his eyes snapped open and he took a step back, staring at her a bit startled before he quietly said “it’s you…”


“It’s hard to be high profile and young. I wasn’t very confident; I was cripplingly shy. And at the age of 19, you are all too aware of how people are perceiving you. I remember reading the first profile of me that was printed in a magazine and thinking, ‘Oh, good, now I’m going to find out what I’m really like.’ But no. That’s not the best way of judging yourself.”

Helena Bonham Carter (May 26th, 1966) through the decades.

“Brad and I were watching The Wings of the Dove,and we thought if you took Helena’s face and it wasn’t in some period garb, it could really work for our movie. And what an actor. She’s incredibly physical. She’s not an intellectual actor, which is surprising, because in the past she’s played such restrained characters. But Marla has her chin thrust forward with her head down. When Helena came on set, you could see she was either ready or she wasn’t. When she was ready, no matter what you said, she wouldn’t look at you; she was in Marla mode. She was like this little train burrowing along with puffs of cigarette smoke trailing behind her.”
