Let me tell you something about Severus Snape. We were best friends in Hogwarts. I know, right? It's so embarrassing. I don't even... Whatever. So then in seventh year, I started going out with my first boyfriend James who I totally hated but then we got married, and Severus was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow him off to hang out with James, he'd be like, "Why are you such a Mudblood?" And I'd be like, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" So then, for my birthday party, which was an all-Order pool party, I was like, "Severus, I can't invite you, because I think you're a Death Eater." I mean I couldn't have a Death Eater at my party. There were gonna be Order of the Phoenix members there in their battle robes. I mean, right? He was a DEATH EATER. So then Voldemort called Dumbledore and started yelling at him, it was so retarded. And then he dropped out of the Order because no one would talk to him, and he came back in the fall to work for Dumbledore, all of his hair was greasy and he was totally weird, and now I guess he's Potions Master.
“A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, and make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.”—Elizabeth Gilbert (via fiamette)
“‘The best thing for being sad,’ replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, ‘is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.’”— T.H. White (via mlq3)
I’ve been reading a lot of fanfiction lately. (Yes, I strayed away from all of those Draco and Ginny fanfics in search of something new.) And I noticed I’ve been shipping other non-canon (but should and would have been canon!) couples.
