Before I met you, I used to feel photographs used to make me look more beautiful than I usually am. I had zero self confidence in myself but then you looked at me like I was the most beautiful misfit in the room. but then you looked at me like i was the girl you write about in songs. but then you looked at me like I was the one you wanted. that’s when I realised I am much more beautiful than I think I am.
“A start?” said Ellaria Sand, incredulous. “Gods forbid. I would it were a finish. Tywin Lannister is dead. So are Robert Baratheon, Amory Lorch, and now Gregor Clegane, all those who had a hand in murdering Elia and her children. Even Joffrey, who was not yet born when Elia died. I saw the boy perish with mine own eyes, clawing at his throat as he tried to draw a breath. Who else is there to kill? Do Myrcella and Tommen need to die so the shades of Rhaenys and Aegon can be at rest? Where does it end?”
Ellaria’s cheeks were wet with tears, her dark eyes shining. Even weeping, she has a strength in her, the captain thought.
“Oberyn wanted vengeance for Elia. Now the three of you want vengeance for him. I have four daughters, I remind you. Your sisters. My Elia is fourteen, almost a woman. Obella is twelve, on the brink of maidenhood. They worship you, as Dorea and Loreza worship them. If you should die, must El and Obella seek vengeance for you, then Dorea and Loree for them? Is that how it goes, round and round forever? I ask again, where does it end?” Ellaria Sand laid her hand on the Mountain’s head. “I saw your father die. Here is his killer. Can I take a skull to bed with me, to give me comfort in the night? Will it make me laugh, write me songs, care for me when I am old and sick?" ― The Watcher, A Dance with Dragons.
A story I’m never gonna write: Supercorp college AU that’s basically inspired by Persephone / The Dark Wife
Starts with wasted Kara (obviously my girl Persephone) stumbling through her dorm and trying to skillfully dodge asshole frat boy Mike (Zeus) who is very determined to hook up with her and Kara can only say no so many times before her social discomfort makes her cave, when she finds an open room and just bolts in slamming the door shut only to find its the dorm room of the weird RA no one likes aka Lena (Hades) and she’s hella desperate so she’s like PLEASE HIDE ME and mike’s banging on the door and Lena just looks at this girl she doesn’t know and then answers the door and tells Mike this is a dry dorm and it’s after visiting hours so she can have him arrested if he doesn’t get out stat.
Cue a bumbling friendship turned infatuation wherein every time Kara is uncomfortable or sad or even joyful she shows up at Lena’s door
we aren’t the mistakes we make, we’re much more than them.
yet i find myself judging people on the basis of the mistakes they make. i find myself judging the most studios girl in the class when she says something ridiculously dumb. i find myself judging the girl who hooked up with her best friends boyfriend last summer. i find myself judging the boy who confessed he’s is cutting himself in class. i find myself judging the girls who stay in abusive relationships. i find myself judging so many people but i hate it when people judge me based on my mistakes. id say I exemplify hypocrisy.
and don’t lie,
you know you do it too.
i’d say we’re a world full of hypocritical people denying how judgemental we truly are.
So today I decided to be bad and make some art for a book that I’ve had my eye on but haven’t gotten to read yet… ALiCE. (by @roselinproductions!)
The plot sounds fantastic and the character designs are absolutely amazing, and I’ve been itching to make some fanart for months.
So… since I am weak… I made some.
This is the protagonist Christopher…he’s great.Renata, the protagonist from the sequel, very different from Christopher.no explanation needed.Michael…is just the type of character that I grow fascinated with.I love this lady already.I tried to make something cool with this character and it didn’t really work but y'know what’s done is done.it’s a great ship ok thanks bye
If you have the chance, you should go buy and read this book!! I can already tell that it’s great, and I can’t wait to read it myself.
Something a little different to my study notes! My books of the month!
Now, just to clarify, although I did read all of these books this month, it is also my 6th time reading Radio Silence. If you haven’t heard of the amazing @chronicintrovert , she has written two of the most amazing contemporary young adult books. Radio Silence is my absolute favourite book EVER which is saying a lot because I give almost every book I read 5 stars on Goodreads!
