I believe in fiction and the power of stories because that way we speak in tongues. We are not silenced. All of us, when in deep trauma, find we hesitate, we stammer; there are long pauses in our speech. The thing is stuck. We get our language back through the language of others. We can turn to the poem. We can open the book. Somebody has been there for us and deep-dived the words. —Jeanette Winterson (via fangirlingthebook)


Another picture of T.E. in ”clothes that are clearly not his own”. 

This is one of only a couple pictures of T.E. in civilian clothes. Perhaps he just didn’t know how to shop/dress himself, having been in uniforms all his life. In The Golden Reign by Clare Sydney Smith, she talks about how Ned planned out his civilian wardrobe ahead of his retirement. It was basically going to be a civilian uniform.

Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast… 

This seems as good a post as any to recount the fact that I didn’t see Beauty and the Beast till I was 22, but had a CD with Disney songs on it from when I was about 8. Because I’d never actually seen the pictures that went with the music, I thought Chip was an actual child who his mother kept in a cupboard and she sent him back to it at the end of the song. In retrospect I wasn’t as worried about this as I should have been.

Victor + making me fall in love with him all over again

Except like every bugger else in the house except Ethan he was only thinking about his own agenda and beliefs, and not what Vanessa wanted. If someone is in unbearable mental and physical pain and has asked for the only thing she believes will make her at least *feel* vaguely comforted why the fuck would you object because she believes that thing is from god and you don’t? What are you going to do, proudly tell her corpse that you remained logical till the end? He’s probably got a twitter account he uses to agree with Richard Dawkins.

Plus she was right.
