the crunch of a footstep in freshly fallen snow, putting together the prefect outfit and knowing you look your best, rooms with tall ceilings, perfect eyebrows, standing on balconies, pressed suits, zipping up tall boots
running out into a rainstorm just to get soaked, dancing to loud music with your best friend, running to clear your mind after a bad day, getting a haircut and feeling light and free, taking a breath of fresh air in the summer, skipping stones
setting up your bed as the perfect Netflix fort, the he loves me he loves me not game, perfect long nails with dark polish, crisp powdery pages, crackling fireplaces, writing until your hand cramps up, old castles
getting a hug from that one person, p.j days at school, taking off make up at the end of the day, hiding in a hoodie, stacking up five blankets in the wintertime, telling someone you love them over and over, movies with friends
For all those who fought bravely this day 19 years ago, to those that lived, may they live well and happy, and for those that died, may they rest in peace.
This day is not just to remember those who died, but to remember what they died for.
Love, loyalty, friendships and family stands above all, and to attain happiness there’s a need for sacrifice.
Sometimes, the good die young so the others can live longer. The ones who die for us, live through us.
They will always be in our hearts forever.
I raise my wand to Severus Snape, Fred Weasley, Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, Colin Creevey, Lavender Brown and the Fallen Fifty.
okay but can we talk about the 4 biggest movies this week?
Kong: Skull Island
female characters who aren’t sexualized
racist, sexist, transphobic, or homophobic jokes
Beauty and the Beast
diverse period piece (this almost never happens omg)
characters and men wearing makeup in a family movie
I mention there are GAY CHARACTERS IN A FAMILY MOVIE??
POC female lead
she’s a badass
she’s a kid
offensive jokes yet again
addresses racial issues in a unique way
crew (including mixed-race director)
Two unproblematic action movies, a culturally-relevant,
political horror movie, and a family movie that isn’t just a bunch of straight
white people everywhere. Am I dreaming? We still have a long way to go but this is a great start.
