Single Stitches

I'm Alana Michelle, a typical Type-A 17 year old. I believe that a successful life is to be achieved through a careful and thoughtful balance; and most importantly by aiming for things that make you happy. Sherlock BBC, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Homestuck happen to be some things that I'm interested in. I love reading books over and over again. Lana Del Rey, Bon Iver, and Arctic Monkeys are among my long list of musical favorites.

Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

after the war, harry and luna move to a cottage near the sea. in the meadow nearby, luna searches for new creatures to write about in the quibbler. harry spends his time reading muggle novels and writing letters to his friends, inviting them all to spend time at the cottage. in the end, however, it is a private world built just for them, and they love it as much as they love each other. {x}

honestly starting from the back and moving forward of this series wizards in the alleyways I AM SO IN LOVE like my sheer joy at Harry/Luna is intense and expansive because I love them so much especially for a quieter harry who spends his time far away from fame and the crowd because my one requirement for any Harry ship is their ability to call him out on his crap (of which he has a lot) but Luna especially does it so gently so kindly that sometimes he might not even notice and they help each other: he holds her up and makes sure she gets fed on days where her minds distant and she strokes his hair when he has nightmares and makes him laugh while they play footsie at the breakfast table and I am so in love with the idea of them being so in love somewhere quiet with just them where there’s no pressure on harry and he puts none on Luna who can be a wild as she likes because that’s why he loves her and her raddish earrings and quiet smile and they take long walks together in the evening telling each other what they discovered that day—Harry becomes a good storyteller trying to recreat the novels he reads and she pratices her columns on him (via victoriousscarf)

When our breasts arrived
as a kind of currency, we’d tug
our camisoles low, use
our newfangled bodies to haggle
with the ice cream man. The winner
was the girl who received her chocolate cone
for free, who sucked on candy cigarettes
the same way she wore a training bra.
That summer my pockets grew forests
of hand-tied maraschino cherry stems:
tampered evidence that I might one day be worthy
of kissing. In exchange for rides
on the handlebars of their bikes,
we’d let the boys bite
the beads off our candy
necklaces until the chokers
resembled punched out teeth.
From their slobber, blue and violet
stained my throat where the sweetness
had once been, so I suppose,
Your Honor, I was preparing
for him.

I’m sick of seeing super-slimmed-down fan art of Ursula the Sea Witch. The cool thing about Ursula is that she has the power to shape-shift however she wants, AND SHE PICKED THE SHAPE SHE HAS FOR HER DEFAULT FORM. She is vain and self-absorbed and obsessed with her appearance. If she wanted to look like ‘Vanessa’ all the time in private, she totally could, but she doesn’t want to. 

also people who say Ursula was jealous of Ariel need to stfu

Their father’s dead… my husband — is dead. And they don’t know yet because if I tell them now then Christmas will always be what took their father away from them, and no one should have to live like that.

I wish there was some sort of blanket you could cover yourself with but it didn’t make you warm it just provided the sensation of being covered because some nights it’s just too hot for a blanket but I need something covering me so it’s a choice between boiling to death or being completely vulnerable to monsters
