"Luna had decorated her bedroom ceiling with five beautifully painted faces: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Neville. They were not moving as the portraits at Hogwarts moved, but there was a certain magic about them all the same; Harry thought they breathed. What appeared to be fine golden chains wove around the pictures, linking them together, but after examining them for a minute or so, Harry realized that the chains were actually one word, repeated a thousand times in golden ink: friends…friends…friends…friends… Harry felt a great rush of affection for Luna" — Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.
Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.
casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.
Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.
what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!
I know a lot of romance writers, and they are amazing, hard-working people who are serious about their craft. They are also serious about having fun! Before you turn your nose up at romance writers and romance writing, get to know some of the people who work in this demanding field. It covers nearly every other genre there is—mystery, horror, western, science fiction, historical (and just about every historical period), paranormal (and all of those subgenres), thriller, fantasy (all kinds). Romance has come a long way from what my mother’s generation read!
I have only been a Whovian for about a year. Matt was my first ‘Real Time’ regeneration and I stayed up till 4am to see Peter announced as the new Doctor. I watched all the ‘NuWho’ in 2 weeks, before watching all the older Who’s in about a month. My bestfriend and I had a Pizza party at 5am during the 50th special which was my first ‘Real Time’ episode.
I was always skeptical about watching Doctor Who, I knew bits and pieces about it, as anyone does. Ask anyone in the world what a Tardis or Dalek is and they will probably know. But it didn’t peak my interest, the concept didn’t scream out my name. So I never gave it a chance. My best friend was one of the biggest fans I knew. I remember about 4 years ago her coming to school with red and puffy eyes, and when I asked her what was wrong she told me it was because ‘David Tennant had regenerated into Matt Smith last night’. I had no idea what she was going on about, but I just hugged her and smiled because I was a friend, secretly wondering why she was crying over a show (When I watched David regenerate into Matt I used an entire box of tissues and properly cried.) After years of nagging me, and making Doctor Who references I never understood, I agreed to watch 1 episode, ‘Rose’.
She had always said to me ‘Matt will be your Doctor I guarantee it, his personality as The Doctor is just so you’, I am studying to be an actor and she said he is brilliant. But she wouldn’t let me watch a Matt episode as my one, it had to be Rose because ‘I want you to wonder what Matt is like so you have to keep watching.’ I did keep watching, I couldn’t stop watching, 3 days after I watched ‘Rose’ I was still thinking about how amazing Christopher Ecceleston was, so I watched more, then David came and I couldn’t stop, I knew Matt was coming and I was excited. When Matt became the Doctor I knew he was mine, my friend was right, he was just me. When he said ‘Nobody human has anything to say to me today’ I got chills, I had never gotten chills from a TV show before. I spent my days and nights thinking about Doctor Who, having Doctor Who sleepovers with my friend. I even got tally marks tattoed on my arm to represent the Silents. I also met Arthur Darvill on my 19th birthday and nearly died. I can honestly say this show has touched my heart, all the companions, all the Doctor’s from Hartnell to soon to be Capaldi have made me laugh and cry (especially Matt when he regenerated i was inconsolable and I now have a T-Shirt with his last line on it). It is truly an amazing show and everything I own has some small DW reference on it.
My friend always brags to me that I owe her for showing me the best thing in my life.
