"Two clones? Yeah, I’m not buying that."

The consensual part of it was that she wraps her legs around him, and she’s holding on to the table, clearly not to escape but to get some grounding in what’s going on.

  Alex Graves, or LITERALLY WORD FOR WORD SOMETHING THAT AN ACTUAL RAPIST HAS SAID AND WOULD SAY BECAUSE THIS IS THE DEFINITION OF RAPE CULTURE, THIS MALE GAZE BULLSHIT THAT SAYS “I KNOW WHAT CONSENT MEANS BECAUSE I HAVE THE POWER TO DECIDE.” ALEX GRAVES HAD CONTROL OVER THIS SCENE AND BECAUSE HE SAID CERSEI SAYING NO AND LOOKING TERRIFIED IS CONSENT, IT OBVIOUSLY IS, RIGHT??? BECAUSE HE HAS THE CONTROL THAT CERSEI OR LENA OR ANY OTHER WOMAN DOESN’T, IT’S ONLY HIS VIEW THAT COUNTS, AND THE AUDIENCE AS A WHOLE BETTER LEARN TO LIVE WITH THAT BECAUSE THIS IS HBO AFTER ALL THIS IS SHOCK VALUE CENTRAL. WHO CARES THAT THE CLEAR CUT DEFINITION OF RAPE IS WHEN A PERSON SAYS NO, BECAUSE ALEX GRAVES AND THE WHOLE PATRIARCHAL STRUCTURE THAT COMES WITH HIM SAYS THAT SHE ACTUALLY WANTS IT, NO MATTER WHAT SHE SAYS. IT DOESN’T MATTER THAT PEOPLE LIKE HIM ARE USING DISTORTED AND INCORRECT VIEWS OF CONSENT, COUPLED WITH THE LANGUAGE OF OPPRESSION IN ORDER TO DISCOUNT VIEWERS REACTIONS AND ACTUAL LIVED EXPERIENCE IN THE FACE OF TRIGGERING FOOTAGE.  ALL THAT MATTERS IS THAT IT GETS RATINGS RIGHT?? FUCK THIS MAN. FUCK THIS FUCK THIS FUCK THIS FUCK THIS FUCK THIS  (via gayrell)  
I didn’t want to leave you.

It looked eccentric and unkempt. Blue had worked hard to get it that way.

In Traditional Western cinema," says writer Travis Beacham, "technology is treated as a kind of Faustian deal that’s going to come back to bite you in the ass. But if you look at the Asian tradition of storytelling, technology is a tool and a solution to problems. I wanted this movie to exemplify this attitude.

3 pm EST. St. Mark’s Eve. Things Are Happening

maggie-stiefvater:

It is real and confirmed and definitely happening that I will be revealing Something having to do with the Raven Cycle (it is what you think it is) on St. Mark’s Eve at 3 P.M. EST.

That’s Thursday, by the way, in case you didn’t commit book one to memory.

I reach for him, on instinct, even though I can not really touch him. But his back is to me now. His shoulders are hunched over, his legs starting to buckle. Without saying another word, [Kim] hoists his arm around her shoulder and shifts his weight onto her. Adam has about a foot and fifty pounds on her, but after stumbling for a second, she adjusts to the added burden. She bears it…The funny thing was, I never really bought into Kim’s notion that they were somehow bound together through me—until just now when I saw her half carrying him down the hospital corridor.

Glendower was a legend in most ways. A mystical giant who’d left a permanent footprint.

But this story … some of the Welsh weren’t convinced that throwing sticks at their English neighbours would improve Wales’s dire straits. In particular, one of Glendower’s cousins, a man named Hywel.

Glendower was a lawyer and —like Gansey— a believer in the power of words. He arranged to meet Hywel alone in a deer park to talk it all over.

Gansey was untroubled with the story up to this point. This was the Glendower he’d follow anywhere.

Then, the two men spotted a deer. Hywel lifted his bow. But instead of shooting the animal, he let the arrow fly at Glendower … who had cleverly worn chain mail beneath his tunic.

Gansey would’ve preferred the story to end here.

But it didn’t. Instead, unharmed by the arrow and enraged by the betrayal, Glendower pursued Hywel, stabbed him, and finally stuffed Hywel’s body inside an oak tree.

All the stabbing and stuffing and utter loss of temper seemed rather ignoble. Gansey wished he hadn’t ever found the story. There was no unreading it. But now, after hearing Kavinsky’s slow laugh on the other end of the line, imagining Ronan drunk in his absence from Henrietta, picturing the Camaro in any state other than how he’d left it, Gansey thought he finally glimpsed understanding.

He was at once closer and farther from Glendower than he’d been before.

You have no idea what I’ve been through in my life. I had the ORIGINAL GameBoy Advance. That shit had no light and I had to find the perfectly lit room. You don’t know what I come from.
