“ At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare. ”
i’m just gonna go ahead and say it… 101 dalmatians is far too many dalmatians
I like my women how I like my men.
That’s the joke.
I am bisexual.
"I am Cassandra Pentaghast, Seeker of the Chantry…"
No, you’re my bae.
when ur friend posts a selfie
sure everyone says theyre excited about ‘spirit week’ but the minute i awaken a few ancient spirits and raise the dead suddenly im a ‘witch’ and ‘ruining homecoming’
I love this bit.
Keep in mind that the dialogue that preceeds it is:
- Aveline: You didn’t come to my solstice dinner party.
- Isabela: Look at you! Dinner parties, cooking… do you have a lace apron yet, or should I get one for you?
- Aveline: Don’t change the subject. I sent you an invitation, and you didn’t show up.
Aveline gets slammed for slut shaming Isabella but by the third act their relationship has changed. This dialogue can be summed up as:
Aveline: You’re part of my family.
Isabella: I didn’t think you’d want me as family.
Aveline: Of course I do.
