This is crucial.
have you ever cried over a character
i don’t mean in the way a lot of people say like “OMG ALL MY FEELS MY CREYS”
have you ever felt such emotion towards a character that you just cried
because you wanted to be with them and help them and make them feel better
because they’ve helped you so much but you can never do the same for them
this is from a real diary by a 13-year-old girl in 1870. teenage girls are awesome and they’ve always been that way.
This is from a real diary by M. Carey Thomas, who was incredible her ENTIRE life, too. Girls, don’t do science or you’ll end up a lesbian suffragette president of Bryn Mawr.
The first diary in Thomas’s hand (no. 6), a small volume with a handful of entries, begins with the endearing resolution: “I am going to be more gentel to the boys this year; I have asked Heavenly father to help me.”
Also, from when she was fourteen:"How unjust - how narrow-minded - how utterly incomprehensible to deny that women ought to be educated and worse than all to deny that they have equal powers of mind. If I ever live and grow up my one aim and consentrated purpose shall be and is to show that a woman can learn can reason can compete with men in the grand fields of literature and science and conjecture that opens before the 19 century…"

Actually giddy this turned up on my dash to reblog; I didn’t have a Tumblr the first time. XD
Always reblog, because even better than fabulous dames are fabulous anecdotes about fabulous dames from a fabulous actor who obviously appreciates them. XD
This just makes me happy on so many levels.
one of the other playwrights told me about this Toulouse-Lautrec painting of two women in bed together and ohhh goooooooooood I want it on my walls I want it in my room I WANT IT TATTOOES ACROSS MY SOFT AND FRAGILE BODY.
Then perhaps you would like this one! The Kiss!
Basically, Toulouse-Lautrec was this really awesome guy who painted these beautiful pictures of this same couple again and again.
Look, here they are again!
In short, Lautrec is my favouritest of painters
I saw the first painting on google and was iffier towards it-the colours are too much for me- but the other two are SO BEAUTIFUL, GOSH.
Here’s a bit softer version of the first one:
I tried to find out as much as I could about them (because I was an 18 year old nerd taking Grade 12 French-there was a really awkward speech I had to give at the end of the semester that was all about alcoholism, ableism and lesbians). They’re snuck in the background a lot in his works. Apparently they are two prostitutes who worked through the Moulin Rouge and were madly in love with each other. Lautrec had a platonic relationship with them where he was emotionally involved, but not sexually involved with them. It’s pretty awesome but there’s like nothing on them!
oh my god
baz luhrman, make this movie
Socks, Bill Clinton’s pet cat, being hounded by the paparazzi
"I just wanted to bat at leaves."
Always reblog Socks Clinton.
Casual holiday reminder that the Weasley twins once bewitched snowballs to repeatedly hit Voldemort in the face.
This is legit the best thing I have ever seen on the internet.
oh heavens the beauty and the rightness
