the way leo says the quote is just the best thing

The signs as letters between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West
  • Aries: "Do you really love me? Much? Passionately not reasonably?"
  • Taurus: "But I do adore you — every part of you from heel to hair. Never will you shake me off, try as you may."
  • Gemini: "I always have such need to merely talk to you. Even when I have nothing to talk about — with you I just seem to go right ahead and sort of invent it."
  • Cancer: "I wish I didn’t love you so much. No I don’t though; that’s not true. I am glad I do. I don’t know what to say to you except that it tore the heart out of my body saying goodbye to you."
  • Leo: "Yes, I am glad you miss me, even if it is ‘damned unpleasant.'"
  • Virgo: "You have no idea how stand-offish I can be with people I don’t love. I have brought it to a fine art. But you have broken down my defenses. And I really don’t resent it."
  • Libra: "The flowers have come and are adorable, dusky, tortured, passionate like you—"
  • Scorpio: "I wish you could live in my brain for a week. It is washed with the most violent waves of emotion."
  • Sagittarius: "You may have discovered entire new countries in your own soul."
  • Capricorn: "I find I get more and more disagreeably solitary; In fact I foresee the day when I shall have gone too far into myself that there will no longer be anything to be seen of me at all. Will you, please, remember to pull away the coverings from time to time?"
  • Aquarius: "I like the unreality of your mind; the whole thing is very splendid and voluptuous and absurd."
  • Pisces: "I suppose it is good for the soul to be hurt and perplexed perpetually. I know at least that I miss you damnably: that is a good fixed star."
All the bright places quotes for the signs
  • Aries: "What if life could be this way? Only the happy parts, none of the terrible, not even the mildly unpleasant. What if we could just cut out the bad and keep the good?"
  • Taurus: "We are all alone, trapped in this bodies and our own minds, and whatever company we have in this life is only fleeting and superficial."
  • Gemini: "The great thing about this life of ours is that you can be someone different to everybody."
  • Cancer: "Because it's not a lie if it's how you feel."
  • Leo: "You're all the colours at once, at full brightness."
  • Virgo: "The problem with people is they forget that most of the time it's the small things that count."
  • Libra: "All I know is what I wonder: Which of my feelings are real? Which of the mes is me?"
  • Scorpio: "But I can't promise I won't pick you apart, piece by piece, until you're in a thousand pieces, just like me. You should know what you're getting into before getting involved."
  • Sagittarius: "Drive anywhere and everywhere, even if there's nowhere to go. (Note: There's always somewhere to go.)"
  • Capricorn: "I've learned the hard way that the best thing to do is say nothing about what you're really thinking. If you say nothing, they'll assume you're thinking nothing, only what you let them see."
  • Aquarius: "I've always been different, but to me different is normal. I decide on a version of the truth."
  • Pisces: "I have this feeling like I'm waiting for something. But I have no idea what."

Oh, sleepovers. Nothing is better than spending a night with your bestfriends overdosing on junk food, laying around in your most comfortable and embarrassing pajamas and watching five movies in a row. Sleepovers can either be extremely relaxing or hard to recover from, but they are so funny and irreplaceable that I personally think there should be an international Sleepover Night. 

Movies, obviously, are a must-be according to the Sleepover Bible (made up by me right now), but sometimes it can be hard to choose what to watch. I guess one of the best ways to decide is having a marathon or establishing a theme: you can watch the whole Harry Potter/Pirates of the Caribbean/Star Wars saga, go for a tv series like Friends or Grey’s Anatomy or follow a fil rouge that links together a few films.

What I’m proposing you today is one of my favourite themes: teen movies from 1990 to 2000. Beside being extremely funny and unmissable if you are a movie amateur, they definitely left a mark in the filmmaking history, defining a generation not so far in time from ours. They can also teach you something about style or pop culture, so you have no excuses left not to watch them!

JAWBREAKER (1999)

People worshipped them and cursed them, but everybody wanted to be them .

In Jawbreaker you have all the ingredients for a classic teen movie: a high school, a popular and mean clique of Queen Bees, a kind-hearted girl loved by everyone, a prom, hot guys - with the only exception that this is not a classic teen movie.

Jawbreaker is a dark comedy and (surprise!) it involves a kidnapping, a death and police investigations. Written and directed by David Stein, the movie revolves around the “Flawless Four” of Reagan High School, Los Angeles:  Courtney Shayne, Marcie Fox, Julie Freeman and Elizabeth Purr. They all rule the school with a terror regime, except for Liz. She is not as mean as her friends and makes no differences in relating with others - her beauty and honesty, then, make her the most loved and admired girl. 

Obviously, this generates jealousy in Courtney, Marcie and Julie, who decide to prank their friend on seventeenth birthday, by performing a fake kidnapping. They take her off guard early in the morning, binding her with ropes and pushing a jawbreaker candy into her mouth. The girls lock Elizabeth in the trunk of a car and drive towards the mall to celebrate their friend’s brithday with breakfast. However, once they open the trunk, the sight is definitely not what they expected it to be…

Jawbreaker is worth watching not only for the twisted, surprising plot and the iconic (and definitely realistic) language used by the girls, but also because it explores the dynamics of a group of girls with the voice of an outsider, Fern Mayo, who finds herself involved in the events against her will. This movie is gonna make you laugh, startle and maybe regret not living in 1999.

Cruel Intentions (1999)

In the game of seduction there’s only one rule: never fall in love.

Drugs, sex, a hot step-brother, games of seduction, classy and total black outfits, rich mansions. If you like this list, Cruel Intentions is the perfect movie for you. Beside having an incredibly attractive cast, a young Reese Witherspoon included, its plot twists the usual “mean clique” dynamics.

Set in a wealthy Manhattan, the film is about an oddly assorted couple: Sebastian Valmont and his step-sister Kathryn Merteuil. He’s well known for his countless sexual conquers and seductive manners, which perfectly match Kathryn’s inner wickedness and malice - but they always both manage to get away with it thanks to their fascinating looks and charming attitudes. 

The tight relationship between the two not only sees them accomplices in many misdeeds, but also gives rise to explicit sexual innuendos, as Sebastian’s not-so-secret fantasy is to sleep with Kathryn. Despite wishing the same, the girl likes to play it hard to get, so she decides to set up a bet: if Sebastian will be able to seduce Annette Hargrove, Kathryn will have sex with him - otherwise, she’ll get his vintage Jaguar. It’s not as easy as it seems: Annette is the daughter of their school’s headmaster and has recently written an article on saving her virginity for marriage.

As the time goes by and the relationship with Annette develops, Sebastian will find his controversial morals hardly tested. He’ll also have to manage the seduction of the young and naive Cecile, the new girlfriend of Kathryn’s ex, and he’ll be soon torn between his usual lifestyle and a wager maybe too hard to win, even for his unbeaten ego.

Cruel Intentions is weird, explicit, somehow shocking. It points out the differences between boys and girls as it comes to sex, providing a few interesting reflections under a chic, witty and dark atmosphere. Kathryn’s outfits are ICONIC and the movie will make you want more - and you’re lucky, because there are a prequel and a sequel.

Clueless (1995)

Dear diary, I’m more fabulous than five minutes ago.

I don’t even know how to start with this and if you’ve never seen Clueless before… oh my gosh, you can’t imagine what you’ve missed. This movie is p-e-r-f-e-c-t! 

Yes, we have a Queen Bee, Cher, with her sidekick Dionne. And yes, she’s vain and superficial. But she is funny, gorgeous, good natured, harmless and extremely relatable. You could easily make any quote from her character yours, really. She’s crazy wealthy and lives in a mansion in Beverly Hills, obviously being the most popular girl at school.

The movie explores Cher’s life and her attempts at making “good deeds”, showing how her attitude is more innocent than biased. She decides to give Tai Frasier, a “tragically unhip” girl, a makeover aimed at initiating her into the popular universe of their high school; she tries to act as cupid and match two professors (also to raise her grades); all of this, just for the sake of “giving back to the community”.

Cher’s hilarious adventures continue as she finds herself facing a new, attractive boy at school, her annoying stepbrother, the driving license exam and other teenage things we’ve all been through. I loved this movie because she’s fierce and self confident in a positive way, for once - and I won’t even mention the outfits of almost every character, which I’ve seen more than once reinterpreted in the latest collections of many fashion brands. And let me add that Alicia Silverstone’s facial expressions are the best thing in the world… In a few words: watch it. You won’t absolutely regret it.

The Craft (1996)

“You girls watch out for those weirdos” - “We are the weirdos, mister”

Everyone loves a bit of magic. Candles, chanting odd words, summoning the supernatural, meeting in the middle of the night - all things you probably don’t do but that still sound fascinating and attractive, especially if you are a young girl with a mysterious past in a new school where you know no one.

This is how it goes for Sarah Bailey once she arrives to the catholic academy of St. Benedict, Los Angeles. A group of outcasts, with difficult, gloomy lives and rumored to be practicing witchcraft, notices that Sarah is not as normal as she seems, thus luring her into joining their coven. The powers of the four girls reach a whole new level as they try to fix their messy lives and make up for any wrong that had been unfairly done to them.

However, nothing is easy when it comes to unearthly powers - the group will face difficult personal struggles and they will soon understand that everything comes with a price. 

This thriller will open your eyes on the hard life of social rejects in a surreal way, making you think twice before exposing someone not as lucky as you - you never know what may be their revenge. I loved The Craft because it explores a different side of the world depicted in the movies listed above - it gives voice to the unheard and shows things from a different point of view.

10 Things I Hate About You (1999)

But mostly, I hate the way I don’t hate you, not even close.

Sisters can be so different. Take Bianca and Kat Stratford, for example. One is popular, beautiful, admired and elegant, the other is a smart, casual, ironic bookworm. Cameron James (and adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is head over heels for Bianca as soon as he sees her, but he’s warned by a friend that the girl’s father doesn’t allow her to date anyone. This doesn’t only upset Cameron, but Bianca as well - that’s why before the prom she quarrels with her dad until he agrees on letting her go at one condition: Kat has to find a boyfriend and go to the prom, too, causing Bianca to become furious since her sister will never want to be with someone.

Cameron finds out about the new rule and decides to find a boy who will date Kat, so then he’ll be able to go out with Bianca. The mission seems impossible, but of course we have Heath Ledger, in the role of Patrick Verona, who once again becomes the hero and (obviously with a heavy salary) agrees on trying.

Will the mission stay professional? Will Kat resist to Patrick’s charm or will she be trapped by the good-looking outcast as bitter as she is? Will Bianca go to prom with Cameron? You need to watch the movie to find out. This is one of my favourite ones, I’ve seen it at least three times and it’s just great - I always like watching the development of a romantic relationship, because each one is different from the other. And the singing scene on the bleachers? Iconic.

Romeo + Juliet (1996) - trailer

If love be rough with you, be rough with love.

Do I even have to say something?? I mean, Leo DiCaprio, Shakespeare’s most known masterpiece, love and death, Baz Luhrmann. This is enough, isn’t it?

Romeo + Juliet is the modernized and adapted version of the famous, tragic love story. It’s visionary, surreal, heartbreaking and it should be seen at least once a week because it’s just too much. It is set in a imaginary Verona Beach, where the adventures and deeds of two families in war intertwine with the forbidden love affair of a young boy and girl. The plot follows Shakespeare’s script, but you won’t find swords or horses. Guns and sportscars, gas stations and a swimming pool are just a few of the innovative twists Luhrmann has used in this dreamy and loud film.

“Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!”

Cancer groaned from being woken up so abruptly and rubbed her eyes, “What time is it?”

“Pancake time!” Aries and Pisces cheered and pulled the half asleep redhead out of bed.

They dragged her into the kitchen only to find that it was no longer empty as it had been five minutes earlier. Capricorn sat at the table with a steaming cup of coffee reading the newspaper, Aquarius was laid out on the couch watching the news with Virgo, and Libra was sitting next to them, but she was much more concerned with whatever was happening on her phone than the tv.

“Where’s Taurus?” Aries looked around for her food enthusiast friend. “I totally thought she would’ve woken up earlier if it meant she got Cancer’s rockin’ pancakes.”

“Sagittarius texted she’s still asleep,” Libra updated the small group.

Aries frowned, “What about Leo?”

“Ya, I wouldn’t expect him for a little while,” Libra spoke without looking up from her phone. “It takes him forever to get ready. Oh, and Sagittarius says he’ll be here when pancakes are ready.”

“I guess I better start making them then,” Cancer yawned and began searching for bowls.

Pisces plopped down in a chair across Capricorn, “You know, with Taurus being an actual chef and all you’d think she’d at least help you out.”

However, everyone seemed to have forgotten that a crucial part of making pancakes was missing, except for Capricorn who was smirking in his chair waiting for them all to realize what he’d already known since the night before.

The Kind Of Lover Each Zodiac Sign Looks For

Aries is courageous and enthusiastic. If you’re someone who loves looking for adventure, can stand on your own two feet, and hates staying stationary, you’re the perfect lover for Aries.

Taurus is reliable and patient. They take pleasure in the simpler quieter things in life, so if you enjoy gardening, cooking, music, and romance, you’ll be with Taurus for a long time.

Gemini is gentle, affectionate, and curious. The lover that Gemini looks for is someone who doesn’t take things too seriously, loves to have fun, and is spontaneous.

Cancer tends to be clingy and emotional so they look for a lover who can handle them at their best and their worst — and won’t walk away when things get hard.

Leo is extremely passionate and loyal and loves to have fun. They look for someone who can meet them in the middle and give back as much as they take.

Scorpio is brave, passionate, and very stubborn. They look for a lover who will be honest and open and willing to try new things. They are very passionate lovers and need a partner just as dedicated.

Capricorn is very responsible and disciplined. They look for a lover who wants to be in a committed relationship as much as them. They look for the real deal.

11. Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Aquarius is very independent, so when looking for a lover, they look for someone who can respect their boundaries and give them their space when they need it. They hate clingy.

12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces is gentle and artistic. They look for a lover who will return the romance in a relationship and knows when to turn things up a notch.

GEMINI HATE

Okay, I am usually pretty much ignorant about stuff like hate on anything, because you know, you can’t change the entire planet’s mind about something they’ve got deep cores about.

But you know what? There’s actually something that’s about to piss me freaking off and that pretty cutie little thingie is the hate people throw at the Gemini sign in this site and EVEN in my daily life. Guys, what the actual fuck? It’s probably the zodiac sign you’ll never get the truth about because all you know is that it’s so easy to call someone or something “two-faced”, “childish”, “flirty”, “overly-excited” and so on. That’s bullshit and you know also what? Now I’m gonna clear this for you.

Geminian unnoted traits, pluses and minuses, related to Greek mythology as its finest:

Gemini is operated by the planet Mercury and in Greek mythology Hermes (or Mercury, related to Roman mythology) is the messenger between the celestial skies and Earth. He is usually portrayed with winged shoes and cap, which makes him the fastest of them all and here we got something - what’s faster than the human thought? Hermes was gifted to be the only god who could speak with both the mortals and gods, who could live on the Earth and Olympus at the same time, so he had the ability to understand them both, but here’s the price: he'd be unable to have conversations and stay for long at one point and place - he has his work to do and information to carry and for this, his brain must be the very best of all - and here we got another point:

Traits:

  • Sharp and open-minded 
  • Curious about new information 
  • Logical way of thinking
  • Quick witted 

But when you take these traits and add a dash of human nature, human body and processes, we have more:

  • Can get nervous very fast
  • Thought outstrips tongue 
  • Anxiety
  • Extremely sensitive (do I need to explain this?)

So here we have two alleys - Mercury’s The Great Teacher of the Zodiac and The Eternal Student and you, of course, could be both - you can chose if you want to learn, to get higher and higher, to get beyond humanity with the information you’re capable to collect and the other path - you can give yourself up on your thoughts and that is very, very common with young Geminis and of course they can “grow” as that (-):

  • Fake attitude (because the reality hurts so much and we don’t need to try)
  • Childish (because at that point the Gemini refuses to grow up and see)
  • Rude (”Who cares what you’ve gotta say, I don’t want to listen, I want to be thoughtless, I am thoughtless, so let me act as that”)
  • Gossip (”I know something you don’t and I know how to use it for my favor or in your damage.”
  • Copy-cat (don’t make me explain this)
  • Impulsiveness
  • Negative extroverts

Or, as I previously mentioned, when a Gemini wants to succeed and is aware of its capacity, trust me, he knows it and if you try to stop a Gemini of getting hire, he is going to put you on your place, because we are very observational and we saw what you did there and why did you do it. We absorb every single thing that exists, like a sponge. It’s all logic!

  • Have a hidden talent in science
  • Very fast learners
  • Good actors 
  • Perfect in convincing people
  • Sarcastic
  • Serious
  • Not too serious so we can throw black humor 
  • Always know what to say, because we were prepared for all that questions you are already and about to ask
  • OPEN-MINDED
  • Know how to use their charms

Basically we are the most human of all and at the same time - the least. If you make sure a Gemini is fulfilled with your love, if you’re ready to see through the eyes of the infinite child, to look at the world from a different angle, then trust me - you’ve already caught us. If you feel something, we feel it 10x stronger because of our brain and because we are all humans - we deeply believe it’s all there, in the brain. And our thoughts hurt. We are too sensitive to take, just like a little pure child. Don’t stop us from growing, help us and trust me, the very best teacher you can get in your life is a Gemini. Yes, we will always overthink but as a Gemini individual, I personally learned that because it’s all in the brain, then my brain decides to believe it’s all in the mind, then in the soul and then I am infinite. I am air - shape my relationship with you. I can fly - don’t cut my wings and I’ll make sure you’ll only receive the pure truth, because…we can’t get why someone we get along with would lie to us? Even if we do, there’s another thing we hardly get, just because for your reason we have 10 more that we can’t just “shoo”out of our mind and we are very, very hard to get. We are the most complicated sign. And then…

think about our Rising sign

Moon

Mercury

Venus

Mars

and all the other planets, houses, aspects that you’re missing and how they’re standing and confronting each other and with the signs. Mash this up. Make it a mess. Here you have a HUMAN

I’m an intercepted Gemini with Leo rising, Pisces Moon. Stop shitting on my sign

REBLOG THIS! It’s very important, really. We need this.

You go, Gems.

A little love for the signs (From a Libra sun, Leo moon)
  • Dear Aries: It doesn't matter how dark times are, you are there for me. And I know you will always support me. You can make me happy like no one else can. You can say something that isn't even funny and I have to laugh with you. I could talk all night with you. About anything. You are full of light, full of life. You deserve everything bright.
  • Dear Taurus: Even though I've never really been so close to you to say that, I want you to know that you're worth it. You are beautiful, your smile helps people not to give up. So don't give up on yourself. You're strong and I know you smile through the pain, but it's okay. We all go through that and I wanted to tell you that you're not alone.
  • Dear Gemini: You are funny, you are witty, you always know how to make me laugh. I am inspired by you. You are so sociable, yet you know how to be alone and overthink things. You can do decisions by yourself, you don't hesistate to make the right choice. I admire you for that. Also, your art is beautiful. You are art.
  • Dear Cancer: I know we haven't been best friends. I know we had fights and that you broke my trust too often. But I realized, you are only a human being, just as me. Everyone keeps making mistakes, but no one wants to admit that. I hope for you that you'll be happy in the future. I want you to concentrate more on yourself, not on others because you are you, and no one can be that for you.
  • Dear Leo: Whenever I talk to you, it feels like we understand each other without saying a word. You are passionate and you are optimistic. You are the person I look up to, you brighten everyone's day, yet no one knows if you're dying inside. You are beautiful and you know it. You taught me it's completely fine to love yourself. So do it.
  • Dear Virgo: You're so selfless. You always try to help me, doesn't matter if you understand me or not. I know that sometimes it's hard for you to show that you care about me, but I notice in this little things you do for me that you do care. And that's fine. You're human. It's okay to break down. It's okay to talk to someone. You will get through this all. I'm right here by your side.
  • Dear Libra: I feel like everyone of you is my sister or my brother. You can make me feel special without knowing it. When we're talking about god and the world, it's like I've known you all my life, even if it's just hours. I want you to look at the mirror and say "I'm proud". Be confident. Believe in youself. Only if you try that, no one will stop you from loving yourself and the world.
  • Dear Scorpio: I don't even know where to start. You changed my life. You taught me things in an emotional way I never thought I'd experience. With every wise word you said you took my breath away. It doesn't matter how much time will fly, I will always remember you. You are my first love and you make everything feel so real. Everytime you look at me, I feel special. You taught me how to love someone and I taught you how to love yourself. Be happy. No matter how we're gonna end, I want you to remember us. You deserve the entire universe.
  • Dear Sagittarius: You doubt yourself more than anyone else. You wear that beautiful smile everyday, but inside you don't even know who you are. I have so much fun with you everytime we do something together. Don't let that happiness die. People look up on you. And you have to do your own thing. Don't give a shit what others think. Find out what you need, what you want and what you love. Everything else will come by time.
  • Dear Capricorn: You are one of the stongest yet most broken person I know. Or should I say, pretend to know? You hide your emotions, afraid of being hurt or replaced. I tell you something: There are people who love you and care about you. There is hope. You can have whatever you want in life, if you're just willing to accept your feelings and yourself.
  • Dear Aquarius: Being around you is like jumping from one cloud to another. Everything feels easier. Even maths. Life is easier with you. The weight of all the bad things in life are gone. I don't know how you're able to make me feel like this, but I'm sure it makes you very special and I hope you never stop making people feel like this because it's one of the best feelings ever.
  • Dear Pisces: If I'm sad, I know I can always talk to you. You always have a solution to my problem. Even if it's just a sentence like "It's okay, we will find a way.", it works. It makes me feel better. You're the most selfless person I've ever met and you're always there for your loved ones. Just take care of yourself, too, because your life is as important as the lives of everyone else.

Ranking The Zodiac Signs By Who Is Most Difficult To Love

1. VIRGO


Virgos are arguably the most self-sufficient of the zodiac signs. They also approach most relationships from a very analytical and almost managerial position. Even if it’s not intentional, Virgos automatically keep most people at arm’s length until they’re sure they can trust them. Thus, they’re not the easiest people to love. In order for a Virgo to love someone, they have to let their walls down and open up, which isn’t in their nature. Once they do they’re amazing partners, but it can definitely take some time for them to get there.


2. SCORPIO


Scorpios are the queens/kings of not knowing what they want. They fluctuate between hot and cold like crazy and it makes them really difficult to read and subsequently, be with emotionally. A Scorpio can be an incredibly draining partner to be with which is why they often find themselves in and out of relationships. Frankly, until a Scorpio matures emotionally, they’re simply not ready for a real relationship.


3. SAGITTARIUS


There are no sign more flighty, impulsive, and all over the place than a Sagittarius. In some ways, this makes them very exciting partners and whoever they’re with will never be bored. But on the flip side, it makes them nearly impossible to get to settle down. They’re constantly chasing the next thing, the next adventure, the next adrenaline rush. They are terrible at being still, at just existing. And that’s not very conducive to relationships. A Sagittarius will only feel content when they find someone who doesn’t just chase them, but runs right alongside them.


4. AQUARIUS


Aquarians are naturally reserved, private people. They aren’t inclined to open up and letting people in is absolutely not in their nature. It can be really difficult to read an Aquarius which keeps a distance between them and most people. An Aquarius needs someone who they can really trust and feel comfortable being vulnerable around in order to go all in and fall in love.


5. CAPRICORN


Capricorns are the picture of practicality, efficiency, and hard work. While this makes them incredibly reliable and a star employee or co-worker, it can also mean that they approach each and every relationship like a business transaction. No partner wants to feel like they’re being looked at and being weighed on a pros and cons list. A Capricorn needs to learn to trust their heart as much as their head in order to find real, lasting love.


6. GEMINI


Geminis have a reputation for being indecisive and overly emotional. While to a certain extent this is true and can make communicating with them tiring, it also means that they love with all of their hearts and put all of their faith in what they feel. When a Gemini loves, they go all in. They hold absolutely nothing back and give all of themselves to their partner. It can be intimidating, being loved that much. But that level of vulnerability is something to commend someone, like a Gemini, for being able to do.


7. LEO


There’s no sign quite as dynamic and captivating as a Leo. Leos are incredibly independent, confident, and sure of themselves. So it’s important for anyone who is with a Leo to recognize that they’re never going to need you. But they are such a magical sign, it’s impossible to not be drawn to them. Leos make everything more exciting and engaging, so it’s no surprise that everyone loves them.


8. ARIES


Active, exciting, and a beacon of passion, an Aries makes their partner the center of their world. They prioritize their partners and do their best to be their everything. Their cheerleader, their partner in crime, their shoulder to lean on. An Aries strives to be the go-to for whatever the person they’re with might need. Who could say no to loving someone like that?


9. TAURUS


There is simply no sign more loyal and steadfast than a Taurus. When a Taurus loves someone, they’re in it for the long haul. They’re completely devoted and committed to the person who they love. A Taurus leaves nothing up to the imagination, nothing lingering in any sort of grey area. Everything is out on the table and you always have a clear cut idea of where they stand. That sort of devotion and loyalty is rare and hard to find, so when you do it’s not something you’re inclined to let go.


10. LIBRA


All a Libra wants is for everyone to be content and happy. This goes for pretty much everyone on Earth, but especially for people who they’re in love with. A Libra would bend over backwards to make sure their partner is in a good place. They’ll do anything to make their person happy. They’re so easy to love because they show you the kind of love that’s possible to get from another person, and that’s something to strive to emulate.


11. PISCES


A Pisces arguably has the biggest loving, bleeding heart of the zodiac. They feel deeply, they’re all emotion, and they have no trouble expressing what they want and need from the people who they love. A Pisces puts everything onto the table. They leave nothing left unsaid. They’d walk through fire and back for the person who they love, and that sort of love is something you’ll only experience once in a lifetime.


12. CANCER


Cancers are the biggest nurturers, the biggest caretakers, the most likely to love unconditionally of the zodiac. They’re so forgiving, so patient. They’re a sign you can always count on to be there for you, day or night, no matter what. A Cancer perfectly exemplifies what love is supposed to look like. And in turn, how we should all love each other. 

The signs as Cabin Pressure Quotes

Aries: “What an exquisite paradox. Luckily, though, I’m still completely sure it’s going to be fine; so as I’m a hundred percent sure and you’re fifty each way, that still gives us a comfortable hundred and fifty percent working majority.”

Taurus: “Then I put the egg whisk into the snowdrift, whisked it up like a blizzard in the bear’s face, then under cover of his confusion, I bounced away on the pogo stick.”

Gemini: “I’m fairly often just completely happy. For instance, when you get into a bath quickly and it’s just the right temperature, and you go “Ahhhh!”;  I mean, no-one really gets any happier than that.”

Cancer: “You see, a common problem in flight decks with poor crew resource management is that the first officer is overly in awe of the Captain.”

Leo: “I am shelling these chocolate raisins.”

Virgo: “And the thought reminded you of your cousin Vladimir who died in a coffee mine?”

Libra: “It’s always trouble when we are gentlemen. I prefer it when we are imbeciles.”

Scorpio: “That is Wrath, you idiot child!”

Sagittarius: “We have a sportsman-like little bet on today about who can fly the best after drinking a litre of vodka through a straw.”

Aquarius: “The lemon is in play“

Capricorn: “The very last thing I want to do is encourage either of you to do any more lounging than you already do. ”

Pisces:  “Good afternoon. This is your captain speaking. Just to say, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Still no need to panic.  I repeat: there is no need to panic. Or to look out of the windows. Everything’s fine. ”

Could I request headcanons for knights + Chiaki and Mao having an artsy s/o who likes to draw and paint?, also your headcanons are really great btw!!!

aaaah i’m glad you like them !!!! this request was so sweet and pure, i loved it !♥ - mod mademoiselle


Tsukasa :

  • The most enthusiastic about your art ! He’d get so excited whenever you’re drawing or painting and come sit with you, watching what you’re doing intently.
  • He’d always try to guess a deeper meaning than intended, but you can’t really correct him because he looks so cute and happy to have found out about your art’s well-hidden symbolism…
  • He sometimes asks if he can hang your paintings on his bedroom’s wall, only to quickly dismiss it as a joke later, but you know for sure he’s being 100% serious…
  • He’ll often invite you to his mansion in summer and spring, as he believes the gardens might be a good place for you to find inspiration !
  • He loves to take you out on museum dates too, since the two of you share a passion for art !

Arashi :

  • He’s proud to have a creative s/o and you came to know well that happy glimmer in his eyes whenever you start talking about art !
  • Honestly you know he’d support you in whatever you do, but it still feels great to have someone be interested in your passion !
  • He offered to model for your drawings quite a few times, and you actually took him up on it ! You have to admit he’s a pretty good model, but you always end up getting distracted…
  • He’ll secretly take pictures of you while you’re working and save them as his lockscreen, you look so focused and cute on them !
  • He’s so worried about your clothes when you paint, you can practically feel him quivering uneasily every time you pick up your brush…

Ritsu :

  • He doesn’t really mind either way, you could be making clay sculptures of his butt that he wouldn’t notice.
  • He still likes to be around you when you’re busy painting or drawing, your quiet concentration does wonders on him when he has to work on an assignment of his own…
  • You noticed he got more interested in art since he started dating you ! Maybe he’s just feigning indifference to look cool… who knows with him…
  • He found himself mentioning you’re an artist to his friends and Knights bandmates, as he thinks it’s pretty cool and unusual ! They’re fans of you now !
  • As he’s a big baby he’ll sometimes come and scoop some paint on his finger, only to put it on your cheek or neck or wherever he can that won’t be a hassle to clean. Be careful, he can be pretty devilish when you don’t pay enough attention to him…

Leo :

  • He’s !!!! so !!!! excited !!!! Someone finally understands all his talk of inspiration and fantasies !!!
  • Every single time, he mistakes you drawing or painting for a game of Pictionary, and he’ll slump over you and excitedly try to guess what you’re drawing. Sometimes he’s so far from the truth that you worry about his eyesight…
  • Expect him to try and give “suggestions” when he’s watching you draw. Like adding himself, or aliens, or something cooler because he certainly doesn’t like what you’re currently drawing. Apparently it’s not fueling his fantasies enough.
  • Sometimes the inspiration gets to the two of you at the same time ! He’s humming happily and composing a song while you’re drawing, and you show each other your work once you’re done with it !
  • As he’s also a big baby, he tends to pick a forgotten pencil or paintbrush and add little “touches” on your canvas. He’ll just use his fingers if you made sure not to leave any extra drawing tool around. Just give him a canvas of his own and he’ll leave you alone, busy painting his own “masterpiece”. He’ll even insist it’s better than yours.

Izumi :

  • He can’t say he’s extremely enthusiastic about art, but it’s not any art. It’s your art. So of course he’s proud of it. And how.
  • Everyone around him already knows. He doesn’t stop there though : he shows your actual drawings proudly to everyone who more or less knows him. His social media accounts are literally filled with pictures he took of your drawings or paintings.
  • He’s secretly pretty happy you’re so creative. An idol and an artist sounds like the perfect match to him…
  • He’d definitely get jealous if you take someone else than him as a model, or heck, even draw someone else. Hello ? You’re dating an actual model ? And a very talented and handsome one at that ? Why would you pick anyone else than him ?
  • Please stop him from putting your drawings all over his bedroom walls. He’s ready to do it. Oh but don’t worry, he’ll leave some room for pictures of you, too.

Mao :

  • To be honest, it’s his first time being close to someone who loves art so much so he’s pretty excited about it !
  • He likes to watch you when you’re busy. Oh, but he doesn’t watch what you’re doing, no : he’s very clearly staring at your face. He’ll look away very awkwardly if you catch him though. He just thinks you’re cute when you’re so focused…
  • He sometimes buys drawing tools as presents for you ! He got pretty knowledgeable about them, too. Sometimes he cleans up your brushes when you’re done. He likes it : it makes him feel he was useful to you…
  • To him, your drawings or paintings are like pieces of you, so he treasures them dearly. Should you give one to him, it would become a prized Isara family heirloom.
  • He’s too shy to ask you, but he’d love to see you try and draw manga. He just loves manga, okay ? And it just so happens that he also loves you. What would be better than seeing the two things he likes most combined into one ?

Chiaki :

  • Let’s be honest, he doesn’t understand art at all. But still !!! This is your hobby, so he decided to be extra supportive !!!
  • He’s so glad you’re so invested in something. That gives him extra motivation for his “hero of justice” routines and his idol training !!
  • He sometimes kind of misses the point and offers to serve as a model/muse for you. He genuinely believes that’s going to help the inspiration flowing.
  • Sometimes he picks up books on drawing or painting and gives them to you. He really wants to help you become “the best artist ever”, to quote his own words, and as he doesn’t know anything about art himself, he decided to turn to books !
  • He gets so calm when you’re painting. He’ll just sit next to you, put his head on your shoulder and watch you silently. He inexplicably burst into tears once. Turns out your art gets him really emotional for some obscure reason…

it’s probably been done but lemme just add to it so here we go

SUITORS AND sort ofmaybe HELPING YOU STUDY

right.

Leo Crawford - being an actual, living and breathing encyclopedia, Leo is the person you want for objective type questions. Great help when it comes to last minute tips since he can give answers to random questions popping in your head. Probably can win gameshows back to back but doesn’t want the publicity. Can’t remember the distance to the sun? When exactly was it that Carthage got burned? That very specific provision of the tax law regarding exemptions given to corporations employing people with disabilities? He knows it all, and then some. Helps you make flashcards for better memory skills. THE PERSON YOU WANT TO STAY UP LATE WITH because srsly Leo get some sleep. The person everyone goes to after exams so he makes it a point to finish early and escape. Don’t ask how he remembers so much information in his head; he’ll quiz you and you might get distracted because with every wrong answer, you owe him a kiss 

Louis Howard - best study buddy ever because he calms down your nerves. You see him poring over the materials and all you can think of is that must be how gods look at sacred texts. That, and whenever you can’t understand something he explains it in a way that makes it easily understandable (or is it because of his voice?) Motivates you always to give 100 percent in everything because his very existence is inspiring. Almost always ready to go with you to a cafe to study. Avoids the library like the plague (because too many students) Sends you motivational quotes over social media. Probably snacks on healthy food and gives you some because they say it helps. Unfortunately, HE IS NOT the one you want to sit next to when it’s actually exams. Chiller than the airconditioning that’s making you sweat. Doesn’t even sweat even when answering ridiculously long math questions. Amazing.

Sid - He’s almost always in your face but conveniently disappears whenever you’re in study mode. As a matter of fact, almost completely leaves you alone whenever you’re at your desk, except to check on you that you aren’t forgetting to eat or drink or relax. Actually quite nurturing when hell week is just around the corner. Makes a wicked cocktail that he swears doesn’t contain uppers but you’re very very focused after a good night sleep. Very prone to placing random snacks on your table which may also contain random sample questions to help you prepare. Scoffs at you when you feel down because you haven’t finished reviewing - and the next day suddenly a summary of important points is at your table waiting to be read. ABSOLUTELY THE PERSON you want to approach if you want materials - whatever those materials may be: annotated notes from last year’s valedictorian, powerpoint presentations from a professor who doesn’t want his laptop touched, sample exams and suggested answers dating back to 20 years ago, that one book your professor swears by but has gotten out of print? He’s got you covered. 

Giles Christophe - Probably will scold you a bit for not sticking to a study schedule but will help you cram (not recommended). Even in this AU, it is very much discouraged to have him help you cram because you feel like your brain is going to explode with the info overload. BUT has notes for everything. Everything. The entire textbook has been annotated by him. IT IS A MESS tho. No sentence was left unhighlighted. Even has notes of his own notes. Has notes of other people’s notes. Has notes for professor’s notes even, with scribbled emojis and recommendations on how to improve them. Gives you very good sample questions that feel like they’ve been plucked straight from national exams. The kind of well-crafted questions that you hate because it took you 30 mins to answer each bloody hypothetical problem, but will be grateful for because it was a really good question and it appeared in the exams - whaaaaa? YES GILES HAS 90% ACCURACY at predicting questions it’s infuriating and also super helpful for practice tests. Sometimes you wonder how he’s able to do it. Has an annoying (but super convenient)  way of knowing exactly what the teacher wants to read on the essay questions since he gets near perfect points for everything and he didn’t even get the answer right and you kindofhateithimforit

Byron Wagner - study? what study? Or rather, when is Byron bloody Wagner not studying?? What we call study is actually leisure for him - have you seen him do anything except read and stare at the stars communicating with the Elder GOds? NOPE. The person you want to stick with at the VERY BEGINNING OF THE SEMESTER because his work ethic will put you to shame. The kind of student you wished you were, which helps you get motivated and also maybe partially depressed; because can he please tone down on the prodigy aura? And what do you mean you didn’t even highlight your books?? Engages in long hours of discussion with Leo about certain topics; probably tag-teams with Leo and Giles to debate with professors too. Has a certain knack of breaking down difficult theories into bite-sized chewable paragraphs. That, and he never shoves it in your face that you should do better (take a hint, Giles) Srsly. Stick with him to the very bitter end. Will splurge and treat you when you show him how much you’ve improved. Will still splurge even if you didn’t. Byron is happy you’re trying and believes all effort will bear fruit.

Nico Meier - very very very enthusiastic when you declared that it’s start of hellweek and you need to get down and dirty. Did not actually get the memo that you meant down and dirty with academics. Was very confused when you showed up in PJs with stacks of papers you ordered from Sid. Is constantly hovering to tell you you need to take a break. Always volunteers to make you tea and snacks. Helps you shopping for stationery, pens, sticky-notes - all the ammunition you need for studying because he knows all the sweet spots: thrift stores, quaint coffeeshops to spend 12 hours in, 24 hour hobbyshops that get quiet past midnight so you can hole up in a room without a bed. Very very very helpful in everything sans the actual studying because he’s actually a very loud learner: memorizes things out loud, has hilarious/scandalous mnemonics for every goddamn enumeration there is, listens to recorded lectures without moving a muscle; sends you memes in the middle of the night about how time will pass but WILL YOU??? You study with him and you’ll end up laughing how he comes up with all the fun. It’s hellweek, you should be crying but Nico just knows how to cheer you up to your core. 

Albert Bruckhardt - went to seminars on how to curate schedules and has an ENTIRE MASTERPLAN dedicated to helping you ace the exam. Ohboy, get ready to have your entire life study schedule re-arranged for the sake of the coveted passing grades. Leaves you wondering how little you know of time management and your own schedule. Is very strict during study sessions, and knows you have a soft spot when he smiles and uses it against you thesneakylittle . HAS APPS FOR EVERYTHING. AN EMBODIMENT OF what is good in studyblr community. Doesn’t take it too seriously if it took you extra hours before being able to finish a review? No problemo, Al’s already got a plan B. And C. And D. Seriously, this man can run a multi-billion corporation on his own.  You learn the meaning of preparation, and he’s living the lifestyle. After the exams, you feel like you’ve fundamentally changed as a person godbless

Robert Branche - heavensent because he’s tutored you before and knows your strengths and weakness. That, and his part-time job as a tutor has helped honed his teaching skills to an art form. Whenever he’s tutoring you, you feel like you’ve just enrolled in another academy all of a sudden. Patient. Kind. Understanding. Knows how to push you without pushing too hard because he knows you’ve already got enough on your plate and just wants to be supportive. Leaves random handwritten messages in your notes to help you smile. Somehow knows whenever you’re in a slump and listens as you rant AND GIVES YOU good advice too. Makes sure none of the younger boys interrupt or get in your way when you’re on study-mode. ACTUALLY ADMITS things when he doesn’t know them and makes it a point that both of you learn together but those instances are far and few in-between. You know Robert is on the top of his class but the question is, you’ve never actually seen Robert hit the books since he’s almost always at the art club. HOW????? 

Alyn Crawford - the only sane person in the entire world whom you feel like you connect with because both of you are normal compared to the eight other men. He’s got acads troubles just like you do - I mean it’s not because he’s more inclined to home economics or because he’s not as smart but it’s just that he cannot be bothered. HAS A SURPRISING LAZY SIDE when it comes to acads. He’s like your comrade and the academics are the Enemy. STILL VERY SUPPORTIVE. Will listen to you ramble because he knows you learn better when you try to explain things to other people - and please he’d really rather you explain it to him than to anyone else. Loves cooking for you whenever both of you are up for a long night. Loves cooking for you, just because. His coffee is not as good as his twin’s but hey, it’ll do and seriously, with the two of you throwing questions at each other, staying awake is the least of your worries. Like his twin, Alyn loves contests and that’s what makes studying with him unique. For every wrong answer, a household chore is gonna fall on your shoulders. That or a set of push-ups or shooting hoops. Because physical activity helps memory?? PLEASE. You’re skeptical but Alyn isn’t backing down and hubris isn’t letting you back away either. 60% of the time both of you are goofing off and Leo and Louis act as referees, shouting sample questions from Sid and Giles at the sidelines; until Giles calls all of you over because guys, you’re not getting any studying done. AT ALL.

anonymous asked:

What are your thoughts on Rachel?

TL;DR

Buckle in because I have many thoughts about Rachel LOL She’s gorgeous and cute, and I love her face. If I was 16 or 17, I’d have a gay panic too, cuz holy shit. Plus she ain’t slick, we all know she wanted Chloe to check her out in the dressing room. She was buttering her up BIG time.

Anyway. There’s thoughts based on what other people say VS thoughts based on what we see from Rachel personally.

What’s interesting about these games is you have 2 perspectives of Rachel Amber. Judging Rachel by judging Rachel or judging Rachel through other people: In Before the Storm, everyone asked Chloe about Rachel because they didn’t seem to know her. In Life is Strange, you see people who believe something about her when for all we know isn’t true.

Based on what other people said:

First there’s the LiS thoughts, where because of how Chloe described her, I loved her, and I REALLY cared about finding her. It was moreso to make Chloe happy than anything because everything we heard about Rachel was 1) From people who weren’t Rachel and 2) Everything everyone said was different. 

Because of that it was very hard to judge for myself what kind of person she was. 

In LiS our best idea of Rachel is through Chloe, and even she didn’t know everything about Rachel. But to Chloe, despite everything, she was her angel, someone who saved her in a really dark time in her life, and she LOVED HER. Some people interpret that as codependency. I personally don’t because at the time we only saw Chloe in a situation where Rachel was missing, and Chloe being desperate to find her and being hopeful that she’s okay.

(Besides, if you love someone that much, you’d think they’re the best person ever. That’s just my personal opinion.)

  • I do not think she cheated on Chloe with Frank. We have no PROOF of that, just Chloe’s interpretation of the situation, which by that point we already knew that if she wasn’t jealous, she had serious abandonment issues and issues of people habitually lying to her.
  • I do not think she had sex with Mr. Jefferson or ANY of her teachers. No proof of it aside from rumors and Max’s nightmares. She never willingly modeled for Jefferson, we would’ve seen pictures saying so.
  • I do not think she had any kind of drug problem. Just because she hung out with Chloe and Frank, and judging from how she reacted to Frank allegedly having a bad trip. Tho now that we’ve seen Before the Storm, we’ve learned she might have a drinking problem at 16, if that wasn’t her first time drinking.
  • I do think she loved both Chloe and Frank. But Frank was leading her down a path she didn’t want to be, and even Frank himself admitted that they weren’t going to work out because of how young she was.
  • I think she made a plan with Chloe, and Rachel seems pretty set in her ways, and even tho she might have had her doubts at first, she was finally ready to commit. But by that time, it was already too late.

So based on everything CHLOE said, Rachel was amazing but wasn’t always completely honest with people. Despite her dishonesty, she was someone who was there for Chloe when Max wasn’t and someone Chloe grew very attached to and made plans with to have some sort of future together. Now we know that Chloe was there for her just as much as the other way around. And I was so devastated when I found out Rachel was dead this whole time.

I eventually accepted that I was never meant to KNOW her, just that she meant the world to Chloe. Until Before the Storm, when we get to meet Rachel ourselves.

Based on Rachel herself: 

Based on everything in Before the Storm, I can definitely see the appeal of Rachel Amber. I’ve actually known girls like her who were popular based on how they treated people, not by how they manipulated people into liking them. Its almost like 16 year olds can be nice to their peers or something.

She wasn’t nice to people to use them. I don’t think she was using anyone, especially Chloe. Because everyone else in that school had more than Chloe to “offer” to Rachel. And she’s not using Chloe for her truck or money, because at this point in her life, Chloe has none of those things. Plus if she did, she would probably wouldn’t disagree with anything Chloe said and told her things she wanted to hear instead of being honest. How do you know she’s being honest?  

When you get Rachel alone, we see her playing her 2 Truths and a Lie game fairly. We know she’s a Leo, and she proves she’s ambidextrous, and its obvious to everyone from California that Rachel is a California girl. So she’s playing the game, she doesn’t have a fake tone to her voice.

She also sat and listened to Chloe and what she had to say, which was something Chloe hadn’t experienced in probably 2 years. “You’re not a problem, you’re a person.” And I think she truly meant that.

I think she saw something in Chloe when she saw her stand up for herself and others. I think she saw real companionship from a real person who would be real with her, and wouldn’t expect anything from her. So in a way, Rachel could be afraid of people using HER. Plus we know Chloe didn’t expect anything from her because she barely knows her enough to expect ANYTHING from her. She played it cautious if anything, and didn’t pretend they were BFF’s like everyone already thought they were.

I saw everyone wanting to be Rachel’s friend, and Rachel wanting to be their friend, but what happens when she can’t be their friend all the time? They probably feel betrayed at some point, and that’s a lot of expectations to put on a teenager. So why deal with that when you can get a fresh start with someone else.

I genuinely think Rachel wanted some company when she went after her father. She could’ve easily done what she did by herself.

I do not think any part of Rachel’s distress is an act to get Chloe to do things for her, just like I didn’t think Chloe being a little pushy with Max wasn’t her being manipulative. The universe isn’t in cahoots with Rachel just to fuck Chloe over, and thats a stupid idea xD

I do think Rachel has a genuine interest in being more than friends with Chloe. She says “I can’t…. even tho I want to.” At this point Chloe’s the only one who’s seen her at what’s apparently her worst. And even after they fight, based on nothing personal and Rachel not knowing how to talk about her problem, they still feel that connection to each other. And to quote Mr. Peabody “Every great relationship starts from a place of conflict and evolves into something richer.”

So I think they’re both baby gays who love each other and are willing to work on their problems together. And if the universe didn’t kill Rachel, I think they would’ve been happy.

Based on symbolism and shit:

The game is sending us mixed messages about the nature of Rachel’s relationship with Chloe. Is it good or bad? Is it love or is it just a toxic relationship doomed to failure?

On one hand it foreshadows with Chloe saying “And sometimes when we’re incredibly desperate and lonely, we choose the absolute wrong kind of people to let into our lives.” She’s referring to her mother dating David. We could draw the parallel of Chloe and Rachel relationship to Joyce and David’s relationship respectively. In this point in their relationship, David is jobless and kind of mooching off Joyce. But Chloe has nothing to offer to Rachel that she can’t get through more accessible means. And David eventually grows and proves himself to be a good person who just needs to work on being better to his step-daughter.

It also has Rachel saying “Are Miranda’s feelings of instant passion for Ferdinand just inexperience and dramatic circumstances or… has she actually just met the love of her life?” In this case Miranda is Chloe and Ferdinand is Rachel. Harder to make this comparison because Rachel is Prospera, and Chloe is neither inexperienced or in the play. Inexperienced with women probably, but she’s had sex before and I trust can distinguish between love, infatuation, and a fling.

But the one thing I think matters more than either of those things is the fire symbolism in this game, which is both destructive, but also necessary for renewal. Ethan is trying to prevent wildfires, but says “Many parts of our local ecosystem benefit from fire. Knobcone pine cones for example, which require above 350 degrees to open.” Its dangerous, but necessary for life in general. And “so pretty” which describes Rachel haha. Symbolically Rachel could be seen as the fire getting pine cone Chloe to open up.

So I think why we’re getting a mixed bag on how to perceive their relationship is because the relationship itself is a mixed bag. Its not good or bad, its both. Its not perfect and its not meant to be perfect.

Signs as The Catcher in the Rye Quotes

Aries: “She was terrific to hold hands with. Most girls if you hold hands with them, their goddam hand dies on you, or else they think they have to keep moving their hand all the time, as if they were afraid they’d bore you or something. Jane was different. We’d get into a goddam movie or something, and right away we’d start holding hands, and we wouldn’t quit till the movie was over. And without changing the position or making a big deal out of it. You never even worried, with Jane, whether your hand was sweaty or not. All you knew was, you were happy. You really were.”

Taurus:  “The best thing, though, in that museum was that everything always stayed right where it was. Nobody’d move. […] Nobody’s be different. The only thing that would be different would be you. Not that you’d be so much older or anything. It wouldn’t be that, exactly. You’d just be different, that’s all. You’d have an overcoat this time. Or the kid that was your partner in line the last time had got scarlet fever and you’d have a new partner. Or you’d have a substitute taking the class, instead of Miss Aigletinger. Or you’d heard your mother and father having a terrific fight in the bathroom. Or you’d just passed by one of those puddles in the street with gasoline rainbows in them. I mean you’d be different in some way—I can’t explain what I mean. And even if I could, I’m not sure I’d feel like it.”

Gemini: “You can’t ever find a place that’s nice and peaceful, because there isn’t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you’re not looking, somebody’ll sneak up and write “Fuck you” right under your nose.”

Cancer: “I am always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though.”

Leo: “And I have one of those very loud, stupid laughs. I mean if I ever sat behind myself in a movie or something, I’d probably lean over and tell myself to please shut up.

Virgo: “The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.”

Libra: “I was trying to feel some kind of good-bye. I mean I’ve left schools and places I didn’t even know I was leaving them. I hate that. I don’t care if it’s a sad good-bye or a bad good-bye, but when I leave a place I like to know I’m leaving it. If you don’t you feel even worse.”

Scorpio: “Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody’s around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it’s crazy, but that’s the only thing I’d really like to be.” 

Sagittarius: “Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody.”

Capricorn: “I don’t give a damn, except that I get bored sometimes when people tell me to act my age. Sometimes I act a lot older than I am - I really do - but people never notice it. People never notice anything.”

Aquarius: “I think, even, if I ever die, and they stick me in a cemetery, and I have a tombstone and all, it’ll say ‘Holden Caulfield’ on it, and then what year I was born and what year I died, and then right under that it’ll say 'Fuck you.’ I’m positive, in fact.”

Pisces: “What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
