When I paint my eyes to match my soup, it is not because I have nothing better to do than worry over trifles. It says, I belong here, and you will not deny me. When I streak my lips red as foxgloves, I say, Come here, male. I am your mate, and you will not deny me. When I pinch my cheeks and dust them with mother-of-pearl, I say, Death, keep off, I am your enemy, and you will not deny me.

I say these things, and the world listens, Masha. Because my magic is as strong as an arm.

I am never denied.

One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple. —Jack Kerouac (via tomriddl)

she loves him because he knows her in a million ways
he knows what words make her smile
he knows that she hates the taste of cold spaghetti-os
and can’t stand the rain because it makes her sad
he knows that she gets down sometimes
that there is an inescapable grief that follows her always, all the time

he knows how to carve secrets into her skin with his tongue
how to speak without words
how to make her fall in love with him desperately
he knows that she is most vulnerable at night
when she is lying in bed and the lights are off
and she has just put down her favorite book

he knows her intimately
he knows the map to her body better then he knows his own
he knows every scar, every bump, every bruise
and he doesn’t love her because she is something to be fixed
but because she has learned how to fix herself

Oh snap!

As an engineer, this makes me happy.

If only one loop of this gif were equal to one second…

easy peasy

watching this while listening to a clock ticking
is the best decision i have ever made

Man this is rather fascinating.

"Slow" marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives.

"I think a lot of times we don’t pay enough attention to people with a positive attitude because we assume they are naive or stupid or unschooled." - Amy Adams

Of all those at the high table only Sansa Stark was not smiling. He could have loved her for that, but if truth be told the Stark girl’s eyes were far away, as if she had not even seen the ludicrous riders loping towards her.
