♥ The Girl Who Chased The Moon ♥

Once upon a time, there was a girl who liked her life to be happy, her friends to be friendly, her fandoms to be fun, her sports teams to be successful (or at least not break her heart) and sparkly things to be plentiful. I love old movies, all books, the odd pretty celebrity, food that's bad for me and any type of music that doesn't include the word 'dance remix.', I love romance, fairytales and I hate needless, cheap drama in any of its forms - be it in real life, or in films, TV and books.

In a dream world I would've been born a century ago, but only if I could have taken my iphone back with me. I'm a mass of contradictions in a very open book, and all the fun, interesting things I like are posted here.

On that day all the grooms received a grim reminder

Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.


how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

nature posts here ✿

Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. 
Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. 

You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.

People see what they wish to see. And in most cases, what they are told that they see.

Rudy Steiner was scared of the book thief’s kiss. He must have longed for it so much. He must have loved her so incredibly hard.

outside, the world whistled.

Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain.

“The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.” 

Does this worry you?
I urge you - don't be afraid.
I'm nothing if not fair.


For starters, I loved the trailer. Yeah, it looks so polished and it doesn’t show how poor life they had been living etc. but still I like it. Also, it has been confirmed that Death will be narrating the movie. And I love Liesel, I love Hans, I love Rosa, I love Max and Rudy is a perfect beautiful baby boy. But… I have some complaints about how they portrayed Rudy. I know, I know, this is only a trailer but hear me out first.

There will be spoilers!

I cannot agree with this more. I hope, hope, hope that they haven’t diminished Rudy in this film, I think and hope they won’t have (he is Markus’s favourite character, so fingers crossed) and we’ll see him more in later trailers, but yeah, it’s a concern. 

well under the weeping willows and a sea firing flies
with your gypsy necklace and my big brown bow tie
you kissed my lips like i was catching a flight
i said if i’m honest i fell for you that first night

HARRY POTTER; marauders + last words

Ok so I feel like…I need to say something, some sort of defence, or attempt to justify myself and others over what I have felt like has been a vaguely traumatic last few days in the TID fandom.

I’m certain I’ll get unfollowers en masse for this, but…I feel like something has to be said. This series was too precious to me to just disregard what has happened.

The release of the tarot card and the consequent naval battle; punctuated by the things Cassie has said about it, has, personally, made me feel like there is no way for me to continue in the TID fandom — not in the way I used to. But, that’s just me. This post is really about how I feel like Wessa shippers have been unjustifiably maligned, demonised and alienated throughout the entire fandom — I have spoken to enough people about it to know that I am definitely not the only person who feels isolated and uneasy, at best, about these turn of events.

Said in a much better way than I could ever say it.
