You’re off, by God! I can barely believe it since I am so unaccustomed to anybody leaving me. But reflectively I wonder why nobody did so before. All I care about — honest to God — is that you are happy and I don’t much care who you’ll find happiness with, I mean as long as he’s a friendly bloke, and treats you nice and kind. If he doesn’t I’ll come at him with a hammer and clinker. God’s eye may be on the sparrow but my eye will always be on you.
Never forget your strange virtues. Never forget that underneath that veneer of raucous language is a remarkable and puritanical LADY. I am a smashing bore and why you’ve stuck by me so long is an indication of your loyalty. I shall miss you with passion and wild regret.

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”—Anais Nin (via cuntbarf)
“We all fictionalise ourselves in the process of creating a story out of the raw materials of our life. For some it is a soap opera, for others an epic, but, for all of us, it’s an ongoing narrative that we constantly manipulate and reshape, improving (like the best anecdotes) in the retelling. This is not just true of writers. The story is one of the key ways we define and order our experiences as human beings: how we tell ourselves and others who we are. And our stories are full of omission and exaggeration, the stuff of subjective experience.”—Neil McCormick
Joan, is the alien mermaid skin a skin disease of some kind? I've never seen anything like that before in my life so I'm mega curious
Nothing quite so intriguing, m’love! Just every day, run of the mill stretch marks :) I think the woman in the picture was pregnant at some point, hence the texture. Mine aren’t quite as cool, and simply result from a love of cheese :D
Cumberbatch is not the first actor to highlight the difficulties of being “class-typed”. Helena Bonham Carter once remarked in an interview that she was “punished” for her background - she is the great-granddaughter of Herbert Asquith, the Liberal prime minister - and could not get certain roles because she was not “trendily working class”.
crying cats rn
:((((( i’m crying real tears right now
tragic. truly. how do they get outta bed in the morning?
Title: A Good Friend Once Told Me (We Are Memories) Rating: PG-13 Pairing: Dean/Castiel, if you squint. Summary: They were going to have a talk. A talk with emotions. And Winchesters never did that without a beer. Set after 7x10. Title from I Won’t See You Tonight Part 1.
He should’ve expected it, the great old bastard, but he’s never been great at doing the stuff he oughta, and Castiel’s cool shoulder against his still takes him by surprise.
