“Everything’s uglier close up,” she said. “Not you,” I answered before thinking better of it. Her forehead still against the glass, she turned to me and smiled. “Here’s a tip: you’re cute when you’re confident. And less when you’re not.” Before I had a chance to say anything, her eyes went back to the view and she started talking. “Here’s what’s not beautiful about it: from here, you can’t see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You see how fake it all is. It’s not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It’s a paper town. I mean look at it, Q: look at all those cul-de-sacs, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I’ve lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.”
The thing about Cara is that she’s more than just a model—she stands for something in her generation’s eyes, she has a fearlessness about projecting what she stands for, which is so rare.
Cara would never pretend to be someone she’s not, and she’s not living her life for other people’s approval.
A/N: kind of inspired by a few songs and a some poems that i’ve been reading lately about that kind of unhealthy relationship that you keep going back to so trigger warning for that and also don’t fall for assholes ok pls love yourselves over anyone else because i want you all to get your happy endings kwl i really need to learn how to sell my writing better
You didn't want to think he hurt you intentionally. He was sweet, you’d seen that, but he was a guy, so maybe that was it. Maybe he was just blind to your feelings or romantically inept. Maybe he did like you, and was just tempted by all those other girls.
Or maybe he just liked to set fire to your insides and take pleasure in watching you burn.
I’ve been seeing a lot of follow forevers, and as meaningful as those are, there are only a select few I will follow forever, because let’s be real, blog styles change, and therefore I cannot promise forever. Because of this, I have decided to do a mutual appreciation instead. I hadn’t realized how many awesome mutuals I had until I did this. Thank you, you all mean the world to me. <3
The Pack // You’re my friends, my people, my squad goals;
Alex; @jessicajonvs | The Helena to my Sarah; My twin sestra, my everything. I’m so glad we started talking all those months ago. Out of everything I’ve done on this site, meeting you is the best part. Together, we have brought together one of the best group of friends I could’ve ever asked for. Thank you for following me into the deepest depths of my random fangirl feels since Day 1.
Cara; @hawkvyes | The Clarke to my Bellamy; you’re such a lovely little shit, god bless. You mean so much to me, and your daily presence in my life makes it that much more wonderful. Thank you for withstanding my Bellarke and CS feels, even though you don’t understand them (yet).
Jo; @lohgbottom | The Ten to my Rose; I don’t understand how you’re able to stand all of my ramblings when you’re at the other end of the planet. But somehow, we still find a way to be present in each other’s lives on a daily basis. Thank you for accepting my crazy attitude and embracing it, and for making graphics awesome enough to make me jealous.
Dani; @ifitweremyfantasy | The Bilbo to my Thorin; out of all of us, you’re the one who has to deal with me the most, because we almost have no fandoms in common, But, that hasn’t stopped our blooming friendship. Thank you for being awesome, and continue being that way forever.
Soph;@commanderlinctavia / @foreverswan | The Emma to my Killian; Sophia, you’re my true CS and Bellarke go-to girl. You understand my shipper feels the most. Thank you for watching and liveblogging OUAT episodes with me at crazy hours, and for being the reason I can live through any feels these shows throw at us. We’ll most likely die together in the seasons to come, and I’m happy about that.
Mag; @benedictcumberbatch | The Pietro to my Wanda; although you’re new to the pack, I couldn’t’ve asked for a better new friend. My country sister, you’re the one in this large group of people that can understand my Canada references, and you’ve already wormed your way into my heart.
Mahema; @putitinaloveheart | The Mariokart Loser; We’ve been friends for a while now, and I still cherish every conversation we have. We can talk about really silly things, or serious matters as well, which makes our friendship so special. One day, we will play Mariokart together, and I will beat you.
Liz; @zetakirsch | The Patate to my Tomate; together, we could conquer Canada with our stupid jokes. I mean, what haven’t we joked about at this point? You’re awesome, Eden Bemisia. Thank you for being there when I want to be ridiculous to the point of insanity. May we farm potatoes forever.
Meg; @bellamyheartsclarke | The Bellarke fanatic; When you were new to Tumblr, you somehow found your way to my blog, and we’ve been friends ever since. Thank you for being there for me, and for making all those wonderful aesthetics. You hold a dear place in my heart.
The Lovelies // Your presence on my dash means everything to me;
NO BUT LETS TALK ABOUT HOW ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT TRAVELING IS GETTING TO TRY FOODS FROM NEW REGIONS/STATES/COUNTRIES/CULTURES. LIKE. PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT THE THINGS I CAN ONLY EAT WHERE YOU LIVE??? SERIOUSLY, TELL ME. MY FAVORITE THING IS LEARNING ABOUT FOOD CUSTOMS AND TRADITIONS I’M NOT ALREADY FAMILIAR WITH. LIKE. IN THE SOUTH WE HAVE THINGS LIKE SHRIMP AND GRITS AND BOILED PEANUTS AND SWEET TEA* AND WE TAKE THAT KIND OF THING FOR GRANTED, BUT IF I ASK SOMEONE IN ENGLAND TO SERVE ME A CUP OF TEA ICED WITH EQUAL AMOUNTS OF SUGAR IN IT, I’M PRETTY SURE I’D GET HIT. SO PLEASE TELL ME ABOUT SOME OF YOUR LOCAL FOODS AND STUFF???? WHERE EVER YOU ARE????
She’s just so smart and so interesting, and who knows better than Cara what it’s like to have people look at a two-dimensional image of you and make broad conclusions? That’s what Paper Towns is about, and she embodies that character brilliantly. She understands Margo Roth Spiegelman better than anyone I’ve ever met in my life. She knows what it’s like to be misimagined, she knows how the male gaze shapes and distorts personhood, and she brought that to the part … She’s a special person. I’ve never met anyone quite like Cara. You have all of these ideas about supermodels, and the great thing about Cara is that even not in her acting career but in her just living personhood, she deconstructs all of those ideas brilliantly and beautifully.
So just as a joke I told all my followers to go and comment random stupid things about stroopwafels on caras photo. So then out of the blue Cara comments back “what are stroofwafels” so I tell her what they are and she says “STROOPWAFELS FOR LIFE” and then she tweets it. So basically Cara Delevingne is now part of our squad. #SQUADGOALS
Here are some general things I noticed about Cara today. Whether you read and enjoy these or not, I would like to keep them on my blog just so I can go back months from now and reflect on today. So on we go.
1. Sneakers really are her thing. Today she wore heels and nearly fell over herself at least three times.
2. She described her first kiss as either horrifying or horrendous. I can’t remember which, but they basically mean the same thing.
3. She’s very fidgety. Funny. Interrupts in the good sort of way.
4. She looks great in black and white striped pants.
5. She chanted at Nat to take his shirt off.
6. She is everything I expected. And this sounds like an extremely dull (maybe even offensive) way to describe someone, but I mean it in the best way. Because she is real. She is herself everywhere she goes.
7. When someone is “mean” to her she pretends to walk off the stage.
8. She said her favorite scenes were the ones she didn’t film with Nat. Then went on to say all her scenes were filmed with Nat.
9. Regardless of what other people say, she was the perfect Margo. I read the book long before the movie was even in production, and she is everything I imagined. She brings Margo to life. And her acting was truly great. It was like I could feel every single word she was saying. Even in just the nineteen minutes of the film I watched, every breath she took stood for something. Every pause. Every giggle. She is Margo.
