shoutout to george, fred, and especially ron weasley for realizing that harry was stuck in abusive and unhealthy household and, in spite of the massive trouble they knew they could get in, taking immediate steps to personally see him removed from that environment, something no adult in harry’s life did.
“Sometimes, when you intensely dislike a person due to something, you just have to take comfort in the fact that, one day, they will be dead.”
“It's so important to know you should be happy and proud of who you are.”
"My only regrets are the moments when i doubted myself and took the safe route. Life is too short to waste time being unhappy."
"I wonder how biology can explain the physical pain you feel in your chest when all you want to do is be with someone."
"You know, people ask me. They say 'Dan, three years later do you really want to be drawing cat whiskers on your face?' but they don't understand. The cat whiskers, they come from within."
"I'm the living embodiment of 'it could be worse'."
"That’s why I’m here, I’m here for two reasons. To entertain you with stories of my life so , you know, you can find them entertaining. But then maybe compare them to your own lives and not feel so alone with the issues that you go with, go through..."
"And the other half of it is me kind of like articulating my own profound observations on the universe, which is really just an excuse to give myself a therapy. Apparently other people enjoy watching it too."
"Actually believe in your potential. You spend all day and all night daydreaming and sometimes talking to yourself... out loud, which people can see by the way so maybe consider stopping that, about all the things you wish you could be and do, but instead you doubt yourself and say its impossible."
"This happens all the time with sports results, but — I shit you not — I once got a notification from the BBC News app saying that a character in a show I was watching had just died! I thought that news notifications are supposed to be for impending natural disasters, not for just ruining my bloody afternoon."
"You can't expect a kid to be smart enough to realize they can do what they want with their life before they've been pushed through the school system into having an average life.”
"To me, the meaning of life is to be happy, it's to achieve happiness right now. It's to make sure you're happy in the future and that generally when you look back on your life you're like; yes, that was satisfactory."
You look at me and there isn’t anything left for you to say.
Because really, what more could be said?
I know you don’t love me.
I know that.
I know that.
So when silence fills the room,
I don’t try to fight it.
I let it linger and you hold up your fingertips to it, try to make out something of what is left.
Didn’t they ever tell you that you can’t make something out of nothing?
Either way, I pretend not to notice.
I take the weight of not being loved like I deserve and I don’t say anything else.
I don’t try to fix anything.
I don’t waste time being hopeful.
I don’t ask you to be friends.
I don’t promise to keep in touch.
I let you leave and I let the high hopes for the future fall all around us.
Even then, it doesn’t break the silence.
I don’t expect it to.

1. People who don’t respect time.
Cancelling meetings and plans at the last minute. Never being on time. Wasting my time because they can’t manage theirs.
2. People with a great sense of entitlement without having done anything to have one.
Not like that would justify the poor behaviour and attitude but at least that’s marginally less irritating.
3. People who aren’t straight when it comes to matters concerning money. Everyone works very hard to earn the money they have (or at least their parents do). I’m not a bad person if I want to keep the accounts straight and ask for the money you owe me. Nominal amounts are forgettable but not beyond a certain limit.
4. People who exercise their authority without accepting the responsibility that comes with it. Authority means nothing if you only use it to prove that you have authority.
5. People who are super intolerant to people who have different opinions and ideas than they do. People don’t have to conform to your beliefs for you to be nice to them.
6. People who are opinionated to a point where they shove their opinions down other people’s throats. Just because you believe in something you can’t pass a universal statement and except everyone else to believe in it too.
Exhibit A: everyone should be a vegan.
Live and let live, yeah?
7. People who think that being mean is being funny.
8. People who think that sarcasm is humour. While it may be one of the forms of humour, it definitely doesn’t equate to it.
9. People who are phsycially violent and aggressive.
There’s no excuse. Never.
It goes without saying that sexists, racists and homophobes aren’t on the list because it’s implied that I just can’t stand their kind. What kind of humans can?
Requested by @supernaturallymarvellous & @makemyownwonderland with the prompts: “I need you. More than you know.”, “Why are you so surprised all the time?” & “Just admit that you enjoy having me around.”
That was the one word you would use to describe Jim Kirk.
Well, it wasn’t quite fair, but you were avoiding him like the damn plague. It had been months since the incident, but it was still hard to look him in the eye. And he was completely unaware of the effect that it all had on you.
So as you walked down the corridor toward the turbolift, you jumped back when Jim rounded the corner and nearly bumped into you.
His hands flew to your shoulder to avoid a collision and his lips formed a sweet smile. “Why are you so surprised all the time?”
You backed away from his touch with your eyes glued to the ground. “Scotty needs me in the transporter room.”
