Don’t say you love me if I’m only gray to you. It’s either black or white, yes or no, up or down. There’s no ‘well maybe she’ll work’. I am a gift to you and if you do not cherish me like the queen I am, then leave and stop wasting my time. If you want to be with me, you have to work for it. I am not a prize to be won but I am the judge seeing if you are suitable and willing to deal with me. Deal with my random rambles and my soft kisses and my ugly laugh and my cute chubby tummy and my hot screams. Do not say you want me because I’m better than nothing. If anything, you need me more than I need you.
did you include this character which regularly appears, not particularly to drive the plot forward but is beloved nonetheless?
how about this scene that provides important background information about this character?
what about a line from the books which is simply iconic and quoted frequently by the fandom?
*pretending to be entranced by a bird out of the window* maybe not
well then, surely you didn't include this scene where a loved character dies in a heart wrenching moment that is not 100% necessary to the story and I'm not sure my heart can cope with experiencing it again
“Everyone pretends to be normal and be your best friend, but underneath,
everyone is living some other life you don’t know about, and if only we
had a camera on us at all times, we could go and watch each other’s
tapes and find out what each of us was really like.”
