“Birth control eliminated a prime motivation for abstinence. The good professor was right. Making out became less “necessary.” Hell, it was never necessary to begin with. It was fun, most especially between two people who enjoyed playing together. I believe that many of us have a strong, if not fully articulated, desire for extended periods of making out. No, I am not referring to “foreplay.” Making out need not be “fore” anything. It is its own reward. Some of the truest words I’ve ever written are: It is more erotic to wonder if you’re about to be kissed than it is to be kissed.”—
the last picture i reblogged said “be your own hero” and at that exact moment the roller derby girl in Whip It told Ellen Page to “be your own hero”. i feel like i should be high to fully appreciate this coincidence.
I’ve always been a little shy around guys, mostly because of my past. But recently there was a guy who took me out and asked me to hang out quite a few times. I really got the feeling that he liked me. I was stupid though and let my shyness hold me back. Now I’m sure I like him, but I’m not so sure he likes me. I want to tell him so badly, but I don’t want to come off as awkward. I really wish my shyness didn’t hold me back so much. I really miss out on things :(
“I will be devastated. There is nothing I watch without it triggering a series of memories. Everything is so linked to my life. At the same time, it is exciting. It is the end.”—Daniel Radcliffe (via fafafab) (via fuckyeahhptrio) (via colorfieldsandwagonwheels)
“Why do we even bother? Why do we make ourselves so open to such easy damage? Is it all loneliness? Is it all fear? Or is it just to experience those narcotic moments of belonging with someone else?”—Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist; David Levithan (via youdeservemore) (via sarahstrumeier) (via spiffiness03)
“Last night, I dreamt that somebody loved me. No hope, no harm, just another false alarm. Last night, I felt real arms around me. No hope, no harm, just another false alarm.”—The Smiths (via fiercefolly) (via seemsabitparanoid)
Sirius Black:If I hear you're using these Occlumency lessons to give Harry a hard time, you'll have me to answer to.
Severus Snape:How touching. But surely you have noticed that Potter is very like his father?
Sirius Black:Yes, I have.
Severus Snape:Well then, you'll know he's so arrogant that criticism simply bounces off him.
Sirius Black:I've warned you, Snivellus. I don't care if Dumbledore thinks you're reformed, I know better -
Severus Snape:Oh, but why don't you tell him so? Or are you afraid he might not take the advice of a man who has been hiding inside his mother's house for six months very seriously?
Sirius Black:Tell me, how is Lucius these days? I expect he's delighted his lapdog's working at Hogwarts, isn't he?
Severus Snape:Speaking of dogs. Did you know that Lucius Malfoy recognized you last time you risked a little jaunt outside? Clever idea Black, getting yourself seen on a safe station platform. . . gave you a cast-iron excuse not to leave your hidey-hole in the future, didn't it?
“I think that’s what’s wrong with the world. No one says what they feel, they always hold it inside. They’re sad, but they don’t cry. They’re happy, but they don’t dance or sing. They’re angry, but they don’t scream. Because if they do, they feel ashamed. And that’s the worst feeling in the world. So everyone walks with their heads down and no one sees how beautiful the sky is.”—Unknown (via bellanicola) (via aclassicdisaster) (via free-wilderness) (via sistergoldenhair) (via spiffiness03)
