This Bethyl edit o’ mine was inspired by these excerpted lyrics from the song, “Lucky Ones,” by Lana Del Rey… https://youtu.be/IpkPbQWZOks
Which was in turn inspired by bethyllovesmoonshine on Instagram who used these same lyrics in the caption for a photo of Beth and Daryl she shared on her account… 💘
So this photo is dedicated to you, bethyllovesmoonshine! Thank you for the inspiration. 😍
We both agreed that these lyrics are pretty damn perfect for this beautiful pair. And I adore Lana Del Rey. AND she happens to be a friend of Norman’s. 😊
what she means:
Ok, but, like...who owned the Potters’ house after they died? Why didn’t it go to Harry? James and his family were wealthy, and the Potters had been well-established in Godric’s Hollow for a long time, so presumably their modest little house was not bank owned or under mortgage. I feel pretty confident that they owned it outright. And there was a war going on, they knew they were targets...there’s no way they didn’t have a will. Why didn’t their house go to Harry? Did the Ministry just, like...take it? Because they wanted it to be held in stasis as a memorial? That's creepy af. But what gave them the legal right? Is it because baby Harry didn’t pay property taxes for a few years, so the Ministry used that as an excuse to claim it? Who was the executor of the Potters’ will? Why didn’t someone take care of that and ensure the house was held in trust for Harry until he came of age? Was it Dumbledore who screwed this up? I bet it was Dumbledore. It's always Dumbledore... And what about all of their belongings??? Harry might not have wanted the house, but you can be pretty damn certain that he would have wanted some of his parents’ things...James’s old quidditch gear, Lily’s jewelry, family recipes, old photo albums...where the hell did everything go?? Is it...is it all still there....? In the house....? Oh god, that's a terrible creepy thought! Is it all just sitting there, in Ministry-owned suspension, while Hagrid has to beg James and Lily’s old school friends to send pictures because 11 year old Harry doesn’t know what his parents looked like??? What the hell is wrong with Wizarding society, and why did everyone treat literal angel child Harry James Potter this way???!!
Hey guys, I honestly can’t believe I’m in a position to make this kind of post but this is where we are.
This is an old friend of mine I knew growing up. That black and white photo is a picture of the two of us all the way back in kindergarten, happy as clams on our way to a girl scout meeting. When I knew her she was always very sweet and quiet, but also had the best sense of humor and was incredibly talented. We were good friends in grade school, and played basketball together later on in middle school. Later on, I was best friends with her neighbor as well. I haven’t seen her in years, despite attending the same college, but she is a huge part of who I was growing up.
Her name is Mary Carmen Nichols. She’s 19 years old and lives in Vestavia Hills, Alabama. She currently attends school in downtown Birmingham. Earlier this morning, her parents found her missing from her home. Both her cell phone and her car were still there. I’ve known her and her family for a very long time and they are all incredibly wonderful people. She would never just run away, not like this. If you have any information to offer, please please please call the number from the article.
Even if you don’t know her or you don’t live in the area, I’m begging you to please signal boost this. Please.

So, since from the first time I saw that Sherlock North promo pic I found it very photoshoped I tried and crop the photo just to his face and see if my friend Google found anything. What I found is really interesting, this pic right here. He is just a random model in a stock photo page:
It looks to me like exactly the same guy, and the same exact photo:
Collapsed in the hallway because my friend wasn't paying enough attention to me, spent hundreds of dollars on a gift for same friend, and pissed off a bunch of my other friends by declaring said friend as my favorite
Accidentally kicked one of my friends in the head, then laughing when she got pissed
Woke my mom up at 2am because of all the racket I was making in the kitchen while stress baking cookies
Showing my friends photos of my boobs because "don't they look so good in this photo?" and getting the response "your boobs are fantastic"
Keeping a folder of all the ugly selfies my best friend has ever sent me to give to her future boyfriend
Picked up friend and ran to PE because "your legs are too short to keep up with mine, either buy roller skates and hold onto my sleeve or let me carry you, we don't have all day"
Sent my girlfriend at the time 500 seconds of snapchats in under 10 minutes before she woke up and then continued to send more after she woke up
Gave an hour long lecture to one of my best friends who I consider to be family on gender roles and why I generally dislike men who aren't fictional that some how turned into me listing reasons why girls are beautiful and I Love them
Have given the same two pieces of dating advice to one of my friends for years, "dump him" or "give me your phone, I'm going to fight him"
Hugged one of my best friends for over an hour, actually it was closer to two, I only let go when I fell asleep
Talked for a full hour about how hot I am to one of my friends and then after a few minutes of silence, whispered "oh god, I really hate myself" and then curled up into a ball and cried
Consistently terrifies friends with shrieking flying tackle hugs from behind, screams of terror usually ensue
Robotically wrote the Bee Movie Script on the classroom board when we had a sub, "Do you have work you are supposed to be doing?" "Yes." "Is this it?" "No, do you have any more questions?" "I- uh, no, I guess not."
Texted someone that if they messed with my best friend I would brutally murder them and then followed up with blushing emojis and flower emojis
Listened to the same song on repeat 12 hours a day, for over a week, until I could hear the song playing in my dreams
Bonus, Coaches + Teachers:
Some how became the mom friend despite the fact that I can't even take care of myself, "I swear to god if you skip physics oNE MORE TIME", "Do your homework, I know where you sleep", "Oh for fuck's sake, come over to my house, I'm not going to listen to you bitch for weeks because you didn't want to disinfect your cuts"
Was running a high fever during my physics final to the point where I was fading in and out of consciousness, and aced it
Developed a reputation for having terrifying kicks after I realized that the men in my karate class couldn't hold back their punches if they were too busy avoiding getting nailed in the balls
Refused to stop smiling and laughing for a full day, actually got kicked out of class because I laughed so much
