A Handy Guide to Pretty Much Every Period Movie Ever:
-If a man and woman’s hands touch, they are as good as married.

-If the sun starts to rise/set between two people’s faces, they are about to kiss.


He said to himself, that he hated Margaret, but a wild, sharp sensation of love cleft his dull, thunderous feeling like lightning, even as he shaped the words expressive of hatred. His greatest comfort was in hugging his torment; and in feeling, as he had indeed said to her, that though she might despise him, contemn him, treat him with her proud sovereign indifference, he did not change one whit. She could not make him change. He loved her, and would love her; and defy her, and this miserable bodily pain. North and South, Chapter 26.

When i look up into the night sky, i want to map the entire night sky in my eyes.
Every time i open my eyes i want to see their main characteristics and their context in the sky. I want to see all illustrated description or entries i have read, by what’s in the sky, beginning with the northernmost and furthest south end.

“All this gladness in life, all honest pride in doing my work in the world, all this keen sense of being, I owe to her!“ And it doubles the gladness, it makes the pride glow, it sharpens the sense of existence till I hardly know if it is pain or pleasure, to think that I owe it to one - nay, you must, you shall hear” - said he, stepping forwards with stern determination - “to one whom I love, as I do not believe man ever loved woman before.”


The next Avatar comic trilogy, North and South, has been announced!

As we reported over a year ago, this trilogy will focus on the Water Tribes. We previously said that it could see a time jump, it’s unclear if this is still the case but the characters do look older, and the description indicates a considerable amount of time has passed since Katara and Sokka left home so long ago.

Here is the description:

When Aang leaves to aid Zuko with the Kemurikage, Katara and Sokka return to the Southern Water Tribe by themselves. Katara is shocked to find that her beloved village has become a bustling city, with none other than their father, Hakoda, in charge! A Northerner named Malina seems to be behind this change, pushing the North and South to be more unified…but what are her true goals?

There is a very interesting point here, as we know that the Northerner named Malina is actually Unalaq’s wife and Desna and Eska’s mother.

This makes her age a prominent question, but the tie to the Civil War plotline of Korra Book 2 is clear. This marks the first direct connection to The Legend of Korra in the comics— expect more and more as that 70-year gap between ATLA and LOK steadily inches smaller and smaller.

North and South Part One will be released on September 28th, 2016.
North and South Part Two will be released on January 25th, 2017.
North and South Part Three will be released on April 26th, 2017.

i feel like its not an American Roadtrip unless you cross one (1) mountain range and find yourselves at a roadside attraction in the middle of either a desert state or farm state 

bonus points if you make friends with the locals at a diner and find the towns tragic backstory in a worn out pleather booth
