but this quote i can relate to so much

I can’t talk to people. I can’t relate to what they tell me, comfort them when they are upset or even show any kind of compassion when they need it. Some people think it is because I’m cold or don’t care, but really, it is due to my time spent alone. After you’ve lived with so much loneliness in your chest, after you’ve faded into the background and stayed there for so long, all you know how to speak is silence.

Colin + Bradley week 2017
Day 4:
Colin/Bradley quotes

A smile spread across the actor’s face as talk turned to his real-life relationship with Merlin actor Colin Morgan. “We share a lot of laughs and we have a lot of fun,” James said. “We are quite ridiculous in our humor sometimes, which I think only the pair of us can relate to, but ultimately we have gotten on quite well because we had to spend so much time together anyway with filming the show. It’s helped out no end with what audiences see onscreen because inevitably that’s going to carry itself onto the screen as well.

“I imagine myself and Colin, when we do manage to get some time away from each other, we try to separate ourselves from each other as much as possible,” he laughed. “I think we both need that breather to realize there are other people and other ways of telling jokes!” x

Ok so I’ve finally gotten around to doing this highly requested post based off this post and I’m sorry to all those who had been waiting for ages for it to come out but here it is!!!

How to Annotate a Novel Efficiently

Look I’m actually doing the play Medea at the moment so this can be used for other texts apart from novels too!

Like I’ve said before, I know lots of people don’t want to taint their texts with writing and highlighting, but to me, it is so so satisfying when I finish with a fully annotated book with tabs flying out of every page and all that, plus it acts as a sweet resource once it’s done.

((Hopefully by the time you’ve gotten around to this level of annotating, you’ve read through your text already and maybe even put down some initial thoughts in the margins.))

To put it simply, I have three levels of coordination when it comes to annotating a novel: words, tabs and sticky notes.

1. Sticky notes

  • Use for big chunks of text you can’t fit in the margins of your book, such as summaries of characters, themes, etc
  • They can also get those big chunks of info to stand out from the rest of the novel
  •  If you’re reading a larger text with chapters, it’s quite handy to use big sticky notes to summarise each section. 


2. Tabs (and highlighting)

  • Yep so these are the tabs I have sticking out of my book and they’re used for quick references, where I can easily search up a type of quote quickly in the novel without having to flip through every page.
  • The colours of the tabs I use are the same colours as my highlighters, so it is easy to see where the quote is and which tab it corresponds to.
  • ACTUALLY HIGHLIGHT the specific quote rather than leaving a tab there by itself, for future reference when you need a specific quote, but if you’ve got a massive chunk that is just too important to pick out a small quote, use a square bracket on the inside margin. Smaller quotes are better.
  • Have a tab for broad topics such as characters, themes, literary devices, plot developments, context, etc. If you have more colours, you can always make your categories more specific (for me, the character of Medea is separate to the rest of the characters)
  • I write the main idea on the tab itself, a.k.a. the reason why I highlighted or tabbed that quote there.
  • Which quotes to highlight depends on

a)     What we go through in class

b)     What is written as an important quote in the text guide we are given/the internet suggests

c)     What I think is important. If you’re not sure, ask yourself WHY is that quote important and if you can answer that, highlight it!!!

 

3. Words

  • The further explanation of quotes is written on the actual pages, and often right under a tab to elaborate.
  • I recommend using a thin pen as in 0.38 to really fit in as much as possible.
  • This step as well as tabbing is so so important, because you can highlight as much as you want, but it really won’t mean anything until you’ve written down its significance, and even if you have an amazing memory, this is vital ok. Even a few words along the margin explaining the quote can mean the difference between good writing and great writing in your upcoming essay.
  • What do I actually write? If it’s a literary device, I’ll name it (e.g. Metaphor) and explain its symbolism, or the author’s intention for putting that in. If it’s a theme related quote, I’ll explain the message that the author is trying to convey through that quote. If it’s a character related quote, I’ll explain how that quote adds to their character, maybe finding contrasts, etc.
  • Supplies that I used were:

- Mildliners (pink, orange, yellow, blue, aqua; gotta get that colour coding)

- Pilot Frixion Point

- Uni-ball Signo TSI (erasable like the frixion pen so that if I’m not too sure about what I’ve written as an annotation, I can check with the teacher and erase if need be)

- A set of 1000 tabs in total, divided among pink, orange, yellow, green and blue

- Pastel square sticky notes

As an optional step, I highly recommend making use of the back cover or spare pages in the book. I use them for writing definitions of recurring words, good vocabulary to use in the future when writing the essay and also character maps, explaining the relationship between each character.

I hope you all find this helpful!

((disclaimer: this is just how I do it so don’t shank me pls))

Sansa and her deepest desire: to be loved.

What i find so humam  about Sansa (and the reason why i can relate to her so much) , is that her deepest desire, is not having power or even becoming queen. No (for me)  Sansa has one dream: being loved by someone.  

Robert wanted to be loved. My brother Tyrion has the same disease. Do you want to be loved, Sansa?“

"Everyone wants to be loved.”

Of course this desire makes Sansa do foolish things. I mean thats the reason she betrays Ned. 

Her betrothed. Just thinking it made her feel a strange fluttering inside, even though they were not to marry for years and years. Sansa did not really know Joffrey yet, but she was already in love with him. He was all she ever dreamt her prince should be, tall and handsome and strong.

I shouldn’t be afraid, she told herself. I have nothing to be afraid of, it will all come out well, Joff loves me and the queen does too, she said so.

His smile emboldened her, made her feel beautiful and strong. He does love me, he does. Sansa lifted her head and walked toward him, not too slow and not too fast. She must not let them see how nervous she was.

Joffrey pushed himself to his feet. Please, Sansa thought, please, please, be the king I know you are, good and kind and noble, please. “Do you have any more to say?” he asked her.“Only … that as you love me, you do me this kindness, my prince,” Sansa said 

“Sweet Sansa,” Queen Cersei said, laying a soft hand on her wrist. “Such a beautiful child. I do hope you know how much Joffrey and I love you.”

“You do?” Sansa said, breathless. Littlefinger was forgotten. Her prince loved her. Nothing else mattered.

But even after Joffrey, Sansa still has this desire, to make someone love her, to feel loved. Even with Willas (who she has never met…) 

She pictured the two of them sitting together in a garden with puppies in their laps, or listening to a singer strum upon a lute while they floated down the Mander on a pleasure barge. If I give him sons, he may come to love me.

She wanted to look beautiful for Willas Tyrell. Even if Dontos was right, and it is Winterfell he wants and not me, he still may come to love me for myself. 

“I am, aren’t I?” Sansa giggled, and spun, her skirts swirling around her. “Oh, I am.” She could not wait for Willas to see her like this. He will love me, he will, he must … he will forget Winterfell when he sees me, I’ll see that he does.

After Willas though she seems to undestand that marrying for love is going to be possible, because she has a connection to Winterfell. 

The thought made Sansa weary. All she knew of Robert Arryn was that he was a little boy, and sickly. It is not me she wants her son to marry, it is my claim. No one will ever marry me for love.

Still in the winds of winter Sansa still has this little hope, that someone in time,  will love her. 

“Your lordship should not believe such nonsense,” Alayne said. “I’m sure Ser Harrold loves you well.” And if the gods are good, he will love me too. Her tummy gave a little flutter.

This time her eyes met Harry’s. She smiled just for him, and said a silent prayer to the Maiden. Please, he doesn’t need to love me, just make him like me, just a little, that would be enough for now. 

While it may look like Sansa may make the same mistakes with Henry that she did with Joffrey. She wont because she has learned that what glitters is not always gold. And sometimes being comely is not equal to being a good person. 

My Harry. My lord, my lover, my betrothed.

Ser Harrold Hardyng looked every inch a lord-in-waiting; clean-limbed and handsome, straight as a lance, hard with muscle. Men old enough to have known Jon Arryn in his youth said Ser Harrold had his look, she knew. He had a mop of sandy blond hair, pale blue eyes, an aquiline nose. Joffrey was comely too, though, she reminded herself. A comely monster, that’s what he was. Little Lord Tyrion was kinder, twisted though he was. 

Its also interesting to notice how Sansa feels that she has to be better to be loved  (braver or smarter…or even like things she doesnt: like riding)  

“You mean the Hound,” she said. She wanted to hit herself for being so slow. Her prince would never love her if she seemed stupid. “Is it safe to leave him behind?" 

Say something, she urged herself. You will never make Ser Harry love you if you don’t have the courage to talk him. Should she tell him what a good dancer he was? No, he’s probably heard that a dozen times tonight. Besides, Petyr said that I should not seem eager. 

What i find really tragic (and ironic)  is that the only other person who has the same deep desire to be loved for who they are is her “husband” Tyrion. But Sansa cant see it. Not because of his  looks, but because he is a lannister, so she cant trust him.

He speaks more gently than Joffrey, she thought, but the queen spoke to me gently too. He’s still a Lannister, her brother and Joff’s uncle, and no friend. Once she had loved Prince Joffrey with all her heart, and admired and trusted his mother, the queen. They had repaid that love and trust with her father’s head. Sansa would never make that mistake again.

What i hope for Sansa story in the future is that she starts to put herself first, and finds that kind of love in herself, her family  and her roots. 

Any fool could fall in love with someone like you. You’re charming, handsome, funny, supportive, and you have a great personality. So sure, you can get anyone you want. But it takes someone incredible to fight for you. All of you. Someone who’ll be there for you not just on the good days when you make them feel in top of the world and they can brag about you. Someone who won’t just be there when the love feels good. But also when you’re falling apart and when you stop giving them as much attention and when you disconnect from them. And it takes someone incredible to put you first, someone who won’t betray you even if it’s easier to. The that someone incredible was me so it’s your fault for not seeing it

anonymous asked:

I remember a few months back there was a handful of gotham fans who were wondering like what year gotham was supposed to be set it and I was so interested in seeing everyone's thought, but then that discussion just stopped. And see nygma with a flip phone makes me wonder if anyone figured out what year it's supposed to be in gotham? Like 2017 or earlier?

I actually read an article about this back around October. I think it had quotes from someone who actually worked on the show. Supposedly it’s meant to take place in a multitude of era’s (and years) Almost like different aspects of Gotham are paying homage to different types of eras. Oswald, the dapper age, and Ed and Kristen originally seemed similar to 50s attire. Selina seems much more related to our more modern day teenage girl. The similarities to different time settings in any aspect of the show is really interesting to see. You can sometimes see a flip phone or then see computers looking 10 or so years younger than those phones, etc. 

The show runner Bruno Heller said about the time period of Gotham; “If today Batman exists, then this world is the past. But it’s everybody’s past, an 18-year-old’s past and a 54-year-old’s past. So in your memory, the past is all mashed up together. So in this Gotham, it’s a kind of timeless world. It’s yesterday, it’s today, and it’s tomorrow all at the same time, because that’s the world that dreams live in.”

Dating Erik Durm would include...

•constant jokes about his rosy cheeks
•like his girlfriend would say cheesy or cringe stuff just to see the colour rush to his cheeks because she found it cute
•i feel like at first erik can be really closed off because he wants to make sure people have good intentions
•but once he trusts you he is one of the loudest, sweetest and bubbly people you’ve ever met
•he’s constantly cracking jokes or giving people compliments
•he showers his teammates with compliments so much his girlfriend has become convinced that he secretly fancies Burki
•(not that she can blame him)
•he constantly references embarrassing moments of hers
•particularly from her 2014 relatable tumblr, one direction and bieber phase, which is oh so detailedly documented on her twitter
•like why did she not think to delete her tweets before she started dating a literal Greek god???
•'babe, why won’t you talk to me?’
•'soz, ur not harry styles lol’
•(referencing a literal tweet of hers that kills her with embarrassment)
•'really erik, really?’
•'sorry, i just can’t help it. i’m so stressed, well dressed and justin bieber obsessed’
•(yet again, another directly quoted tweet)
•regardless of how much he teases her, he’s still a massive sap towards her
•i’m talking tulips delivered to work, because she hates roses, and fancy dinner dates to the best restaurants dortmund has to offer, regardless of how much she insists that mcdonalds is completely fine
•all in all erik durm is a literal sappy asshole to his girlfriend

On Aoi and Akira’s relationship

VRAINS is determined to leave us baffled on *how* they’re related for a little while longer.

[image-a screenshot from Discord chat]

“giri no imouto” can be translated as sister-in-law

But the problem is"Giri no + relative" is pretty much a catch-all term that refers to any relative that is not related by blood

So, she could be his sister-in-law, but she can also be his adopted sister, step-sister, half-sister, foster sister, etc.

We won’t know for sure until we have more context


I’d just translate it as “non-blood sister”

That’s probably the best way to put it without causing too much confusion about their relationship


So she’s some kind of non blood related family to him, though evidently the general public only knows them as siblings.

wow, that episode was intense, wasn’t it? all those hallucinations showing people’s insecurities and also magnus being the biggest badass. i loved it a lot

- i was actually in tears when alec assured magnus that he wants them to be together, he doesn’t want it to go away, he’s serious about this. and magnus? the happiness on his face? that means everything to me

- when alec sees his mother for the first time, he might be different than in the past. but his body still goes to the ‘perfect soldier form’… this breaks my heart. cause when he’s around her, he’s a soldier first and then a son

- i’m done with shadowhunters calling magnus alec’s friend instead of boyfriend and trying to make their relationship invalid. they can all choke

- i’m still so emotional that max called magnus alec’s boyfriend. and alec’s reaction was just so pure? he was like 'yeah, i do have a warlock boyfriend. he’s amazing’

- ‘traditions change. especially those based on ignorance’
YES! preach it. i’m so proud of alec for saying this because it’s so important. shadowhunters think they’re just better than everyone else… they’re really not

- ‘me and magnus. together.’ & ‘thank magnus’
alec being a protective boyfriend is my everything. this was so beautiful and i definitely need more moments like those

- magnus being obsessed with cats and speaking french to them is my new aesthetic

- i was kind of afraid of that talk between magnus and jace because that 'hurt my brother, i’ll hurt you’ to magnus? just no. so i’m glad jace realised very quickly how serious magnus is and that he didn’t try to continue with it
although i am bitter that this is how we got confirmation that malec actually did have sex. because we deserved at least a conversation between magnus and alec, not something like this

- but magnus’ reaction when he thought he might’ve had an accidental three way with jace was kinda hilarious

- alec was so proud of magnus throwing this amazing party, even though magnus was very insecure. not about his skills to throw a party but that he might not be accepted by maryse or max and he wanted it to be perfect because this means so much to alec
and coming up with the theme and trying not to say too much even though maryse was acting like… well, like she always does. this isn’t something that magnus would do for anyone. and seeing both of them falling in love with each other more and more makes me so so happy

- magnus’ cat eyes are so so beautiful. i’m gonna write this every single time we get a chance to see them
and yes, i’d prefer if magnus and alec were alone for this but i still loved it. magnus felt comfortale enough to show his real eyes in front of max. max who is already becoming important to him because of alec.
magnus doesn’t like shadowhunters but he’s giving alec’s family a chance because he loves alec (yes, he does. fight me on this)
and jace calling magnus their friend? this was so important. it’s not just alec defending his boyfriend. it’s also jace being supportive because he knows magnus is an amazing guy and how much he means to his parabatai
i do wish max apologised for his behaviour… but i really do understand why he did that. yes, it was wrong. but he’s a kid who is constantly forced to watch his family hate each other, being forced to watch your family fall apart when you’re still a child… this isn’t good for him. i just love max so much. and i can relate to him so much.

- alec becoming more confident and speaking his mind is the best view. bit by bit he starts believing in himself and he doesn’t allow people to have power over him, it’s a very slow process but he’s getting there

- ‘this is an elegant affair, not an episode of the real housewives of idris’ has got to be my favourite quote from this episode haha

- magnus was in charge of this huge party, yet he still realised that people were hallucinating and that he needed to help them. honestly, who could ever do something like this? only magnus
everyone kept arguing around him but he stayed calmed and saved everyone’s lives. he is too good for this world
and as soon as his spell book was gone, he put his wards up in a sec without breaking a sweat. we got to see how powerful he is and i need more?
also, he figured out so quickly who the actual thief was. we really don’t appreciate him enough. he’s the most powerful and the smartest being and everyone would be dead without him

- magnus hearing the simple 'alec, no’ and running to actually save alec’s life? i’m just so emotional about this.
alec was ready to jump, he DID jump. yes, it was technically because clary said all those things but it’s so clear that he still blames himself for what happened.
if magnus hadn’t been there… or if he hadn’t cared… i don’t even want to think about this

- also, how incredible was magnus fighting? every hit was precise, his defence was flawless. and when he was finally done, he cast such a powerful spell, iris stood exactly no chance at all.

- fraywood moment left me in tears. i love that they’re becoming friends
even if it breaks my heart that no matter how many times clary says she doesn’t blame him, alec still blames himself for it

- alec supporting maryse… even after all she did, how she never supported him, he’s still there for her… telling her that she can count on him. i cried a lot during this scene

- WE NEVER ASKED luke dragging jace and clary is my everything. shadowhunters always think 'they know better’ or 'they’re doing it for the greater good.’ no, just shut up. listen to downworlders for once because they have a right to know such things
and luke was absolutely the best. true alpha. and also very concerned brother.
luke is the purest character on this show. his sister hated him, said horrible things about him. yet he’s still there, worried about her, trying to save her
we seriously don’t deserve luke

- raphael saving izzy was such a good scene. he really didn’t need to help her, last time they met, she was trying to kill him.
and he believed in her, he was really trying to make her get rid of yin fen out of her system

- and can we just stop with that izzy plot line tho… cause i’m done with it. izzy deserves better than almost dying in some alley trying to score. if it wasn’t for raphael…

- and i absolutely hate that izzy forced raphael to feed on her. he didn’t want this. he fought hard to stop feeding on human blood and shadowhunter blood? this is too much. he didn’t consent to this. this was so wrong.

- raphael telling izzy how magnus saved him left me in tears. he’s one of the very few people that actually feels grateful for magnus being there for him and helping him during the worst times.
i actually don’t have good enough words to describe how much i love magnus

- izzy telling maryse all those things is my aesthetic. she always needed her mum and maryse was never there for her. and yeah, you can explain some of those things but this is still not okay. and izzy was absolutely right to say all of those things

- i really loved a scene between maia and jace. yeah, they may not exactly… like each other but they’re clearly on better terms and their interactions are always interesting 

- i can’t even imagine what jace must’ve felt like when he heard that maryse wanted him dead. sure, she never actually said that but he still heard that and thinking of something like this is one thing. but actually hearing it from someone you consider your mother?

- jace and maryse finally having a talk made me cry a lot. they both really needed this. they mean so much to each other but because everything that happened, it was just too hard and complicated

- max’s ceremony and his oath was one of the most perfect moments in this episode. it was so beautiful

- i absolutely despise climon. just get those unnecessery straight couples from me. especially when they’re basically siblings
although simon trying to find courage was adorable 

- valentine needs to stay away from madzie. magnus is basically already her step dad so ughhh he’d better watch out because he really doesn’t want to piss the high warlock of brooklyn off
