Till now that she was threatened with its loss, Emma had never known how much of her happiness depended on being first with Mr. Knightley, first in interest and affection…She had herself been first with him for many years past. She had not deserved it; she had often been negligent or perverse, slighting his advice, or even wilfully opposing him, insensible of half his merits, quarrelling with him because he would not acknowledge her false and insolent estimate of her own - but still, from family attachment and habit, and thorough excellence of mind he had loved her, and watched over her from a girl, with an endeavour to improve her, and an anxiety for her doing right, which no other creature had at all shared. In spite of all her faults, she knew she was dear to him; might she not say, very dear?
Emma, Jane Austen
#the most badass and beautiful of them all #you’re not dead to me you will NEVER be dead to me #as far as i’m concerned you took off on a trip to france #to learn fencing and hone your archery skills #and lydia comes visit one weekend and you go to the louvre and shopping #and you call scott every once in a while #and you guys don’t even speak #just hold your phones to your ears and listen to each other breathe and can /hear/ each other smiling #and chris keeps calling you two times a day to make sure you’re ok and that you’re taking care of yourself #stiles talks you into joining an online gaming community where you guys team up and kick ass #isaac keeps sending you love letters in poor french #even derek shoots you an e-mail saying he hopes you come back soon bc dealing with two moping werewolves isn’t his job #IN MY DREAMS YOU LIVE AND YOU’RE HAPPY OK (via alphavenger)

But what about the Wild West AUs
- the outlaw and the preacher’s daughter
- the sheriff’s deputy and the schoolteacher
- the poker king and the saloon girl
- the cavalry man and the native american captive
- the texas ranger and the rancher’s daughter
- the wagon train boss and the young widow
- the widowed father and the mail order bride
I wonder exactly how many fanfics have started this way.
Collating all the domestic ship memes together into one post, send me a ship and I’ll tell you:
- Who’s more dominant:
- Who’s the cuddler:
- Who’s the big spoon/little spoon:
- What’s their favorite non-sexual activity:
- Who uses all the hot water:
- Most trivial thing…
if you think it’s degrading to work in retail remember that voldemort worked at borgin and burkes before he became the dark lord
What I love about this is that it showcases how completely opposite Hobbit and Dwarf culture are.
When a hobbit speaks to you directly— in a matter that could be construed as rude, no less— it’s a big deal. A big freakin’ deal. So he can’t even bring himself to expressing his displeasure at having his house hijacked by a bunch of foreign strangers without adding an apologetic disclaimer. This is the face of a hobbit who has been pushed to frustration, and that’s pretty damn rare.
Then Dwarves. They’re tough as nails and hard around the edges. It takes a hell of a lot to offend them, and even more than that to admit your own guff and apologize— so when somebody does apologize, you take it seriously. Even if you weren’t actually listening to whatever preceded that apology. Even if you don’t think it was worth apologizing for. That shit is serious business, and you take it seriously, yo.
This is culture clash at its finest, reduced to two words.
In short: Peter Jackson’s a genius.
It is really good writing, but I just want to emphasise that Peter Jackson does not write these scripts alone. He has two collaborators, Fran Walsh (who is also his wife) and Philippa Boyens, and the three of them also wrote the screenplays for the Lord of the Rings trilogy together. While Peter Jackson is highly visible as the director of the films, and Walsh prefers to stay out of the limelight, I just never want their contribution to the Middle-Earth films to be overlooked.
Because they’re great.
#not to mention the noises the Ringwraiths make were partly recorded by Fran Walsh #because she can make weird noises and I think that’s great #I like a woman with a way with words and an unearthly shriek
this information pleases me beyond words, thank you
