All the Pretty Things

Ask me anything   A place to post the things I find pretty. I love vintage, retro, and eclectic styles; old architecture; fantasy; soft/light filled photography; books; cats; nature; ballet; hot tea; cozy sweaters; lovely people from music and movies I like; love for everyone; quotes that make me think. Warning: may contain occasional fangirling.

"Dressing like that is like dangling meat in front of a shark. What did you expect?"

Oh right, that’s why if products are visible from the window, it’s considered acceptable to rob a store. 

That’s why if you can smell the food wafting out of the restaurant you can steal it. 

That’s why if they leave their wallet on the table while they go to the bathroom it’s ok to copy down their credit card information. 

That’s why if they’re joking about violence it’s alright to start punching them. 

That’s why if the phones aren’t attached to the counter they’re free to take.

That’s why if the shape of a guy’s junk is at all visible through his clothing it’s cool to kick him in the testicles. 

Oh wait. None of that is the case. Are you saying that women deserve less respect than objects?

Those outside the US:

Enough with the American Dream thing. You can’t just grab a job and work your way up to the next social class and *boom* you’re well off. It’s not really like that. I’m tired of people telling me that I’m in America, so these things I say I’m struggling with are actually simple and easy, and why don’t I realize that?

Please, it’s frustrating

People coming before Daenerys to tell her what her dragons have done to them and taken from them, and explaining that they never know when they will come out of the sky and take something else, reminds me of the people testifying to the US government about the family members they’ve lost to drone strikes

Wanted to make a quick point about the thigh gap thing. Some people have wide set hips. Some people don’t carry much weight in their legs. Some people’s legs curve outwards. Mine curve out from the knees. I can’t even put my feet together with straight legs. My knees bend in too much for my feet to touch. So some people get thigh gaps when they’re an average weight. Then there’s me who had a thigh gap when I was very underweight and desperately ill. If you go around comparing your body to others like “they have a thigh gap so they’re skinnier” or “I can see their hipbones therefore they have more self control”, you’re making assumptions about their bodies that probably aren’t true. Every body is built differently and has a slightly different structure, so comparisons just don’t work. Your body is yours and can’t be compared to another because it is built in its own unique way. Everyone seems to want what they don’t have. You want someone else’s body and someone else wants yours, and maybe if we just cared for our bodies like they were exactly what we asked for, then everyone would feel a lot more confident. #bodyimage #recovery #edrecovery #eatingdisorder #selfesteem #thighgaps

Robert Downey Jr and Susan Downey together is maybe the only thing that makes marriage look super awesome. 

I’m going to go pout about being alone

I will never be team Snape. 

Everyone disliked him for the mental anguish he caused, then after the **soo special** reveal, suddenly everyone was all *pulling hair out, tears streaming down face* “IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!” *gasp sob choke* “He loved her FOREVER!!! Do you know how long that is??!”

Yeah, he fucking loved her, big whoop. He had no principles of his own. Everything he did was because of this obsession he had with a girl he didn’t end up with. Yeah, he really loved her. How does that mean everyone can suddenly overlook and forgive his constant verbal abuse? I’m sure he damaged Hermione’s confidence. He lowered Neville’s already low self esteem. He probably made the kid suicidal at times. 

He was abusive. Severus Snape was an abuser. Him being capable of love doesn’t change that fact. The side he was on doesn’t change that fact. 

The dismissal of his abuse and sheer adoration for his *oh so tragic and beautiful* story gives me so much disgust for that part of the HP fandom. 

Just another example of how people dismiss verbal abuse as not being the serious kind.

Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…

to believe in a universe as young as six or seven thousand years old is to extinguish the light from most of the galaxy, not to mention from all the hundred billion other galaxies in the observable universe
