"The great moments of your life won’t necessarily be the things you do, they’ll also be the things that happen to you. Now, I’m not saying you can’t take action to affect the outcome of your life, you have to take action, and you will. But never forget that on any day, you can step out the front door and your whole life can change forever. You see, the universe has a plan kids, and that plan is always in motion. A butterfly flaps its wings, and it starts to rain. It’s a scary thought but it’s also kind of wonderful. All these little parts of the machine constantly working, making sure that you end up exactly where you’re supposed to be, exactly when you’re supposed to be there. The right place at the right time." - Future Ted
Oh hey it’s Frank
A writer for the new york times interviewed a series of people who had survived jumping off the golden gate bridge. Every person she interviewed admitted that about two thirds of the way down, they realized that every seemingly meaningless problem that caused them to jump was fixable.
Every single one.
this gave me chills.
Reblogging this again because it matters.
Ted: Its just, everyday I think I believe a little less, and a little less, and a little less, and that, sucks. What do I do about that Scherbatsky?
How Frozen really ended
aka why I shouldn’t stay up late and should go to bed
"we almost dated" is such a weird relationship to have with someone
Plus the sequel “we never got closure”
And then the side adaptation “as a result I have a weird crush that never died”
Not to mention all the emergency backup vampires who show up at the end of the last book. You’ve got an American revolutionary, an inexplicably paranoid brit, some gorgeous, superpowered Amazons who may also be lesbians…
I seriously want stories about all of them, written by a bunch of different authors. Fuck the main characters.
THIS. Jasper was my favorite ‘cause I’m a big old American history nerd, but EVERYONE ELSE had cool backstories. Even Edward was mildly interesting.
All of this.
Also, Rosalie and Jasper have been two of my favorite names for AGES; I had HT characters with both of those names in the early ’00s! And now it feels like I can’t use the names anymore, which is a very sad. :( It’d be super great if those characters were the focal points instead, because they’re way more interesting and also have EXCELLENT NAMES.
YOU FORGOT ABOUT BENJAMIN. He was an orphan raised by his extensive family before being finally adopted by his street-performer uncle who taught him music! and tricks! and pick-pocketing! And he could influence the elements before he was made into a vampire. And then when Amun killed his uncle and kidnapped him to use him as a weapon he was basically like “FU DUDE, I’m no weapon.” and Amun was like “I like your spunk, kid.”
ALSO TIA. TIA WHO WANTED TO BE A VAMPIRE BECAUSE SHE’D RATHER HANG OUT WITH HER COUSIN THAN WITH HER HUSBAND AND KIDS AND EVERYONE DWELLS ON BELLA’S MAGIC DEMON BABY BUT LET’S NOT FORGET THAT TIA WAS LIKE FUCK THAT SHIT AND RAN AWAY TO JOIN THE VAMPIRES WITH BENJAMIN.
There’s a difference between a female character who exists in a story and has a romantic relationship with a male character versus a female character who exists in a story to have a romantic relationship with a male character
