Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
There is a difference
between having a love interest
and being reduced to a love interest for a male lead.
That is all.
JUST SAT HERE AND WENT WOAH FOR THIRTY SECONDS LAJFKJAFHLK
I like jumped in my seat the moment I say Daniel’s face. It’s fucking cray.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT HOW DOES HE EVEN LOOK HOTTER IT’S NOT FUCKING POSSIBLE
ooc: Is Healer Draco canon? I know the others are… Also, I like this photoset a lot.
I am a black woman. I am also a writer. Because I don’t see enough of myself in the stuff I read, I’ve been trying to come up with ways to describe black people that don’t refer to food, and that encompass the variety of our skin tones and hair textures.
I had an epiphany today. What words would I use to describe us if I weren’t comparing us to white people? What words would I use to compare us to each other?
#I just exploded at my desk #into a glittery cloud of rainbows #from whence a pegasus was born #and it is currently typing these tags #before it takes flight and wings its way directly into the sun #singing songs of joy all along the way #Do you know why? #Because that is David Tennant dressed as Ten #wearing a tie with blue Roses on it (allison)

I was the only girl on an all-boys varsity soccer team. I had to change on the bus during away games because I didn’t have a locker room at other schools. I was not uncomfortable with that, actually. I did what I had to.
But one day I noticed that like three guys who were seniors were just staring at me as I did this and I must have shot them a dirty look because one of them (who is actually a family friend) was like “I’m sorry, I don’t mean to stare, but we’re still trying to figure out how the hell girls do that” and I just felt bad. They just want to get their girlfriend’s bra off without losing an eye and we can remove the whole thing like fucking wizards
