because she didn't want to be alone

You didn’t love her. You just didn’t want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe she was just good for your ego. Or, maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life, but you didn’t love her, because you don’t destroy the person that you love.

Are you sure you’re gonna be okay?

alex walking away after that speech was so perfect because not only it shows that she’s making this about her and only her - not her feelings for maggie but her realizing that she’s been missing something her whole life and she’s thankful to maggie for pointing it out - but also she was respecting maggie’s emotional status in this episode which is that she’s heartbroken and mostly wants to be alone. she went there to check up on maggie. when she got up and left it’s like she was saying “and now i’ll go home and do some serious self analysis, good luck with yours here.”

Nomi’s Pride Speech

I’ve been thinking about my life and all of the mistakes that I’ve made – the ones that stay with me or the ones that I regret are the ones that I made because of fear.  For a long time I was afraid to be who I am because I was taught by my parents that there’s something wrong with someone like me – something offensive, something you will avoid, maybe even pity.  

Something that you could never love.  

My mom – she’s a fan of St. Thomas Aquinas and she calls Pride a sin.  And of all the venal and moral sins St. Thomas saw pride as the queen of the seven deadly sins.  He saw it as the ultimate gateway sin that would turn you quickly into a sinaholic.  But hating isn’t a sin on that list.  Neither is shame.  

I was afraid of this parade because I wanted so badly to be a part of it.  So today I’m marching for that part of me that was once too afraid to march and for all the people who can’t march:  the people living lives like I did.  Today I march to remember that I’m not just a me. I’m also a we and we march with pride.

So go fuck yourself, Aquinas.

Just because I’m dating Steve and you don’t like him—
You know what? Forget it. I just thought it was a good picture.

I think it’s quite possible that Rose Quartz did shatter Pink Diamond.

And the ramifications of that are what caused her to develop her strict policy of poofing and bubbling. Because she saw what happened to gems like Jasper when Pink Diamond was gone. She saw how sad and lost and alone they were, and decided that she never wanted that to happen again. Because shattering doesn’t just condemn the gem that was shattered to a tortuous, fragmented existence, it condemns the other gems that followed, and perhaps even loved, that gem to a life of loss and deprivation.

Rose Quartz couldn’t do that. Not again. But while I think she set up her poof and bubble m.o., she never told the others why it was so. She never told them about her guilt, so when Bismuth offers Rose the Breaking Point, Bismuth fully expects Rose to take it. After all, Rose herself shattered a gem. But Rose herself has changed, and she’s sworn to never do that again.

Fuu (Samurai Champloo, 2004)

There were two useless bodyguards travelling with me. Well it doesn’t matter anymore. Now I’m as alone as can be. So it doesn’t matter where i die, but… I didn’t want to drown. Because, you know, your body size doubles. I’m not joking. I want to die beautiful, you know?

Oh look! It’s transparent

“Jack,” Rapunzel begged, “You don’t have to do this. You don’t know what you’re sacrificing…and I’m just not worth it,” she choked.

Jack whipped around to her, a fierce glint in his eyes.

“Never say that, Punz, you are the most important thing in my life,” he breathed, kissing her gently on the forehead, “And I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone,” he smiled softly.

Turning back to Manny he smiled brightly, lacing her hands through his and squeezing tightly.

“I’ve made my choice,” he announced, “I choose a mortal life. I choose happiness,” then, he cast Rapunzel a warm smile, “I choose her.”

i’m sorry if the gifs are weird and glitchy, it’s my first time doing this…

“She didn’t even ask, she just sat down and started doing her makeup.” said this confused gentleman later, from his desk at the headquarters of Nice Guy Ltd. “It’s as if my opinion, as a total stranger who just happened to be on the same bus at the same time, wasn’t important.”
