rhett-and-scarlett

Nekem sohasem volt türelmem ahhoz, hogy összeszedjem a törött darabokat, összerakosgassam és ragasszam őket, és azt mondjam, hogy a ragasztott éppen olyan jó, mint az ép volt.

Rhett & Scarlett: Saturn (Gone With The Wind) by  letsdanceforawhile

My favorite movie. My favorite movie couple. I believe Gone With The Wind is a prerequisite if you plan on shipping EPIC couples. Rhett & Scarlett are the master class.

“My news is this, I still want you more than any woman I’ve ever seen. I am asking you to marry me. Would you be convinced if I knelt down? Why not try marrying a fine young man who has a bad reputation and a way with women? It’ll be fun.”

His insistent mouth was parting her shaking lips, sending wild tremors along her nerves, evoking from her sensations she had never known she was capable of feeling. “Stop please, I’m faint,” she whispered.

“I want to make you faint. I will make you faint. You’ve had this coming to you for years. None of the fools have kissed you like this-have they?”

She would faint if he did not stop. If he would only stop -if he would never stop.

“Say Yes! Say Yes damn you, or -”

She whispered “yes” before she even thought.

“She was convinced that nothing ever pleased him or ever would please him, that he either wanted something badly and didn’t have it, or had never wanted anything and so didn’t care about anything.”

GOD I NEVER TRULY INTERNALIZED THAT BIT UNTIL NOW

Each reading of this book really does reveal new things—this time around I’m just increasingly in awe of how Mitchell writes these tiny moments of huge significance, how she subtly but powerfully shows you that Scarlett 100% recognizes all these things that Rhett does for her but is 100% incapable of putting them into context. Like, of course you realize that the first time through, when Scarlett realizes it, and you have the hindsight and her epiphany re: her own obliviousness. But it’s really so enmeshed throughout the story, how Scarlett is keenly observant about these individual words and behaviors but blind to the enormity of the truth.

Someone seems to me to think her 15 mins is just beginning and will never end. Cait at the event and no one knew without the attendee list. The other? A video, a pic, tagging a stylist, having a make up person tag you. A lot for someone who was a guest of a guest.

Rhett: Don’t you think it would be nice if you bought something for Mammy too?

Scarlett: Why should I buy her a present when she called us both mules?

Rhett: Mules? Why mules?

Scarlett: Yes. She said we could give ourselves airs and get ourselves all rigged up like race horses but we were just mules in horse harness and we didn’t fool anybody.

get to know me meme: [1/10] favourite movies: Gone with the Wind (1939)

There was a land of Cavaliers and Cotton Fields called the Old South, here in this pretty world Gallantry took its last bow, here was the last ever to be seen of Knights and their Ladies Fair, of Master and of Slave… Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered. A Civilization gone with the wind

cruel intentions romantic love scene

This was basically every ‘90s teen girl version of the Rhett/Scarlett kiss from Gone with the Wind. 

“I’m impressed.”

“Well, I’m in love.”

Not even kidding, every girl at my sleepover swooned at that point. 

We were 15. 

This is perfect. I’m SO proud to be Southern and have NO intention of leaving the South, but I’ll be damned if I sit around and let “The Greatest Generation” drag our name and the best parts of our culture through the mud while simultaneously trying to whitewash and sanitize our history. Over my dead body…
