your faves could never

It’s no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I failed in that task. And because of my prejudices, I failed you. I am haunted by how things might have turned out differently if I had been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it’s the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It’s for that child that I give you my ring. I don’t ask for your forgiveness or for you to forget. I ask only that you believe this: whether you are now reading this as a human or as a vampire, I love you all the same, as I’ve always loved you and always will.

It’s for the most part really lovely because people come to the meet and greets and they show us love. We’re standing there and this girl comes to approach us and you know, we’re both smiling at her.  [x]

the most important daily reminder you’ll see today:

andrew joseph minyard (palmetto state foxes, goalkeeper, #3), who repeatedly stated he doesn’t care about exy, in a match against the ravens (known as the number 1 exy team in the nation) missed only 13 shots out of 150 attempted, while going through a serious withdrawal. 

talk about iconic.

theonlysarahshahi: Running into this one is always a highlight of my day. Rarely do you make friends in this business. Happy that of all the things that came out of #poi, my friendship with @theamyacker is the strongest. Love you friend❤️❤️ #shoot#glasses 

     + theamyacker: ❤️ you @theonlysarahshahi! Made my day too!! I feel the same and was just thinking how jealous I am of all your new cast mates:)

We hereby name you papal governor of Carbognano… You will make an outstanding magistrate.

Sansa Stark went from a spoilt naive little girl to one of the smartest and strongest characters one the show. She spent years sitting back taking everything in, Learning to make decisions with her head instead of her heart and playing the game without anyone realising her potential. She gained power and support using her own intelligence with no need for threats or violence. She’s becoming a better, more capable leader than more experienced people who have been in positions of power for years. Sansa Stark has had the greatest character development I have ever seen and no-one can convince me otherwise. 

a list of quality ratonhnhaké:ton quotes that, in my opinion, deserve way more attention:

  • “will i get something for my troubles, aside from impressing a 12 year old girl?”
  • “fishing is a nice change of pace at times”
  • “stop. poking me”
  • “oh. OH! well, good for you!”
  • [falls out of tree] “what? i meant to do that”
  • “we don’t know what’s on the other side!” “we do now”
  • “i expect an apology when i return”
  • “how do i look?” “ridiculous”
  • [wins a bocce ball match] “victory is sweet”
  • “and instead you ask us to, what, shell all of new york?” “no of course not. only part of it”
  • “this next part you may not like” “as if i have liked the others?”
  • “recovered from your beating then?”
  • “is that so, old man? or perhaps we should step outside? i will gladly demonstrate how easily i could trounce… you”
  • “THAT’S IT” [bashes a guy’s face in with a checkers board]
  • “i will uncover this mystery myself!”
  • [finds norris in an outhouse] “oh… i will find you later then”

feel free to add more

Do you ever get emotional about the fact that Thomas Hamilton was an unashamedly gay man in a time where you could be executed for being gay (the last execution for sodomy was in 1835) and where it was certainly seen as a shameful and sinful thing to do. That Thomas fought against this status quo with everything he had, to end the oppression and degradation of people like him but also people very unlike him who were treated unfairly by the British Empire, and he used his religion (you know, that tool that’s been used to persecute queer people for centuries) to argue for mercy and for his ideas. That even after ten years in Bedlam (where they certainly tried to make him feel shame for being gay and for his relationship with James) and in backbreaking enslavement on a plantation far from everything he’s ever known, when the man he loved comes and he turns around and sees him again, he doesn’t even hesitate, he throws himself into James’s arms and kisses him in front of everyone.

Just thinking about Thomas Hamilton makes my heart grow bigger in my chest. We are blessed with his existence honestly.

  • Mabel Pines chose love over fear and bet the whole universe on the word of a con man and won.
  • Mabel Pines didn’t get the summer romance she was looking for but in the end she was okay with that because she learned to love herself.
  • Mabel Pines thinks that every woman she meets is beautiful, including herself, and if you don’t understand how radical that is you’ve never been a twelve-year-old-girl.
  • Mabel Pines met a creature she idolized and it told her she wasn’t good enough and she punched it right in its smug stupid face.
  • Mabel Pines was terrified of growing up because of everything she might lose, and the narrative didn’t blame her or break her for feeling that way.
  • Mabel Pines cared more about friends and family than magic and mysteries and not only did the narrative validate that, her scrapbook ended up being the most important object in the show.
  • Mabel Pines is glitter and sweaters and cheesy pop songs and blurry group selfies and the biggest smile in the crowd and she’s also so, so, so much more.

This isn’t a “your fave could never” because those are weird and needlessly combative, but look, I know what kind of narratives girls get. I thought that my fave could never. And then she fucking did.
