Alan Rickman, Rima Horton and ‘’a friend’’ at the 2/8 Friends of BAM Chair Dinner, Brooklyn, New York, 8 Feb. 2011 [x]

I have just been made aware of this photo floating around with a similar caption. I would just like to kindly point out that while the mistake is completely understandable, the lovely lady ‘’friend’’ is, in fact, my cousin and Rima’s older sister - her name of which I do not feel right to reveal right now. Perhaps, the resemblance may be easier to spot in this well regarded family photo shared by Alan and Rima’s long-time family friend’s daughter, Lily Bertrand-Webb. Although naturally, they do not look completely alike. Cheers!

A ship please! I’m a 5'2 female with long brown hair and brown eyes, but don’t let my size fool you, cause I can be dangerous. I love to sing and dance around (even though I’m not great), I suffer from anxiety and I use acting to help overcome it. I love sports and can be a bit “too aggressive” and competitive while playing games and such. I love to read and write and I love to look at nature, but mostly watch my crime tv shows. I’m also a very forgiving person. (1/4)

You also sent this information in as well:

If I don’t know you, I’m really shy. But if I know you I’m one of the most outgoing person you know. I’m sometimes socially awkward and I’m extremely clumsy also. I love Elvis and country music, and cheesy jokes and puns. When I get angry or sad, the only way you would know is my tone of voice, but I have a really high patience level too. I play the guitar and keyboard (well, I’m trying to learn how). My favorite subjects are DADA and Charms. (2/4)

I can be extremely lazy at times and I’m great at manipulating people without trying to. I try to be nice, but when you hit a sore subject or if you think your right when you are wrong, I’ll give you the silent treatment and give short remarks. I rarely have crushes, and if I do it’s on someone that I’ve known and have been friends with, and I usually crush on them without any hint that I like them. I hide my emotions really well, but at times I can just explode from bottling them up. (¾)

Also, I love to give nicknames and I would probably call you so many loving ones like; love, sweets, sugar, handsome and lover boy. I would like a Marauder Era and Golden Trio Era male ship and thank you for doing this I love you so much! (4/4)

Thank you, I love you too!

Marauders era:

I ship you with Severus Snape!

Severus would admire your inner danger and would love how you hide the ferocious nature you have like a secret weapon. Initially, Severus would be very embarrassed by your singing and dancing as he doesn’t like to draw attention to himself, but he’d secretly smile when no one was looking. Severus would have a policy that he was allowed to insult your dancing and singing and so help anyone else who dared to. Openly, Severus would admire how you manage your anxiety. As you’re both competitive, there would be a few clashes and arguments when you’d play games together, but you would both be perfectly fine afterwards. You would introduce Severus to crime TV shows and they would become his favourite thing to watch especially with you. Your clumsy trait would amuse Severus to no end; he would have to suppress a laugh every time he picked you up off the floor. Even though you’re both very private when it comes to your emotions, you would learn to be open with each other as you both know that you have to be honest with each other’s feelings; therefore, you have a no secrets policy in your relationship. Severus would secretly love the nicknames you give him, but would scold you in public with a smirk whenever you used them. Severus would always inject an element of romance in to your dates and would never fail to surprise you which you would love about him.

Golden trio era:

I ship you with Neville Longbottom.

Neville would love your care-free attitude to your singing and dancing which is what would bring him out of his shell and make him more confident. Neville would always be there for you when you were feeling anxious; he would have a sixth sense about it (he would just know when you weren’t feeling your best or a bit nervous) and would hold your hand to comfort you. In return, he would know that you were always there for him when he was feeling the same way. Between the two of you, you wouldn’t have enough fingers to count the amount of times you had picked each other up off the floor from tripping. Neville would love your passion for music and your determination to learn and it would inspire him to go out and do something or learn something that he always wanted to. As with every couple, you would have your arguments and Neville would absolutely hate your silent treatment. He would always try everything he could think of to make you talk to him again from leaving messages on your mirror to sliding roses under your door. Neville would love the nicknames you have for him and would beam with a huge smile whenever you called him by them.

“Well, the poetic thing about it is he’s voicing a blue butterfly. And anything that I can tell Rima, his wife, to comfort her, is there’s that quote: ‘Just when the caterpillar thought it was all over, it became a butterfly.’ And often, butterflies…you know, death can be seen as the end. It can also…I don’t know if it’s any comfort, but you can also see that it’s a point of transition.

So, I think maybe there’s something poetic in him being a blue butterfly in his last screen presence. But he was such a gentleman and a man of huge kindness, and twinkle, and contradiction, because sometimes he’d be aloof, and then the next minute he’d be immediate and crinkle out in a massive, mischievous smile. And he had an absolutely and totally unforgettable…there will never be another voice like his.” — Helena Bonham Carter on Alan Rickman [x]


“I’ve always been a little bit in awe of Alan because he’s always been incredibly solicitous of me. I wasn’t long out of drama school when I first met him. I was quite green and unsure of myself. He seemed to have an instinct for people who were in need of guidance of some kind. I’m in my mid-50s now — our age difference isn’t that vast — but I always saw him not as an older person but as someone who took me under his wing. There are some people you didn’t know how much they meant to you until you miss them, and I think Alan is one of those people. He wasn’t a person I expected to see on a daily basis, but I didn’t realize how important it was to me to have Alan there until we got the news."
