Ella usó mi cabeza
como un revólver
e incendió mi conciencia
con sus demonios.
Where normal people have a heart, Neil McCormick has a bottomless black hole. And if you don’t watch out, you can fall in and get lost forever.
Why do you always use binoculars?
It helps me see things closer. Even if they’re not very far away. I pretend it’s my magic power.
In the old days, if someone had a secret they didn’t want to share… you know what they did? They went up a mountain, found a tree, carved a hole in it, and whispered the secret into the hole. Then they covered it with mud. And leave the secret there forever.
In the Mood for Love (花樣年華), dir. Wong Kar-wai
Now that I’ve had a few minutes to digest that scene…
I’m actually really, really angry.
It’s not just because Jaime is my favorite character, but because Jaime is (per the books) one of the few men in this series who respects women.
Jaime, who wanted to protect Rhaella from Aerys.
Jaime, who actually grasps that rape is a terrible, terrible thing (“If I were a woman, I’d make them kill me,” he said to Brienne, a line that was included in the show).
Jaime, who actually left when Cersei asked him to leave (even though he “travelled a thousand leagues to get to [her] and lost the best part of [himself] along the way”).
Jaime, who is very intentionally not a rapist because he is supposed to be the archetypical knight in shining armor who believes in chivalry and old-fashioned romance and protecting highborn ladies.
Have you ever been alone on this train? When was the last time you were alone? You can’t remember, can you? So please do take your time.
