she's so important to me you don't even know

I still can’t get over how Alex is at a loss for words about describing Maggie. “She’s so-” like there aren’t words big enough or perfect enough to describe how she feels about Maggie and how important she is to her. You can see her light up thinking about her. You can see the warmth and comfort wash over her as she pictures Maggie and describes her. “She’s smart, tough, beautiful,” then Alex repeats “beautiful” for emphasis. It is Maggie’s inner and outer beauty that makes her “so beautiful”. Maggie is a beauty that she has never seen before. She is a beautiful light that helps Alex see her inner beauty, like Kara said “so are you”, as well as making the world a brighter more hopeful beautiful place.

“He’s the best thing that ever h a p p e n e d to me, and you’re the best thing that ever h a p p  e  n e d to him.”

Okay so with The Force Awakens having been out for a little bit and people catching up on the old films, let me state my case for actually watching The Phantom Menace, even in Machete order (just stick it right before 2), because of one thing: Padmé Amidala.

- She is 14 during the events of this movie, when she just becomes queen in a tense situation of her planet and people

- Devises the plot to disguise herself as her own handmaiden so she can actually go out and do things because she will not be contained to a seat and a title

- Takes it upon herself to see firsthand how people live, how the pain in other worlds is real, how she can help that, because she won’t let other people tell her what’s going on, she’ll see it and do it for herself

- Padmé “If you won’t let me do it I’m coming with you no matter what” Amidala, alright, Leia gets it from somewhere and it ain’t Anakin

- Straight-up telling the Senate “If you won’t come help me I’ll do it my damn self” and marching straight off Coruscant to fight and die with her people

- Creating a plan for taking back her capital utilizing the structural weaknesses in her own palace, that she discovered herself should this situation arise

- Not to mention the involvement of uniting the races on her planet which had never been done before

- When told the plan is dangerous and risky her only response is “Well then you better not fuck up your part then” and gets right to it

- Naboo tried to amend the constitution to let her reign for the rest of her life and her heirs reign after her and she declined

- Refusing to compromise when it meant her weakness, refusing to take the easy way out when it was presented, and refusing to stop when others needed help, always

- Please don’t skip The Phantom Menace you will miss all of Padmé’s best scenes the girl was building a space in the universe for herself and this was only the beginning

                                    you know this is pretty under appreciated because everyone was so focused on the memories of damon elena remembered once she was turned into a vampire. but stefan never compelled her once. not a single time. i mean she always trusted he didn’t i’m sure but she never really knew until that happened. every single memory with him was real. MEMORIES ARE TOO IMPORTANT. he never took anything away, not even when she found ugly things out about him. he could have, but he never tried. and that makes me so happy. like when elena took off after she saw kat’s picture. she left the necklace, and when she came back he just gave it right back to her. didn’t even hesitate or consider erasing what she uncovered. i was just thinking about that night of the car accident, when her parents died and how it all came flooding back to her. about damon and their first meeting. him saying he was in love with her. and then nothing about stefan. not that night. not ever. not a single memory he erased.     “she has to want to be with me on her own terms.”


My friend wanted me to go to her volleyball game tomorrow (the 16th of October, 2015 of all days) and I was like “…I have plans” and she gave me a look and said “you don’t have plans, you never have plans” which okay no I’ve got a lot going on rn actually, but she doesn’t know I like One Direction so I just said “I have a date with Larry.” and walked away. Yeah… there’s no one named Larry in my school.
