Why Guardians of the Galaxy was awesome


  • wicked hella music
  • it made me cry more than once
  • "we are groot"
  • the queen of sci-fi and chris pratt
  • basically it was just a band of misfits, not heroes, saving a planet
  • tiny dancing groot
  • it never took itself too seriously, and even though it was an action movie, it was still funny and heartfelt
  • there was about 12% of a romantic subplot, but it never went very far
  • just groot in general

"All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer."

— Ernest Hemingway (via wordsnquotes)

Today, every inch of me is covered with bruises that could easily be mistaken for birthmarks
because of how long my skin has tried to turn itself inside out.
Today, a mourning dove took one look at me and flew away.
Joan, today it was all I could do to keep myself alive.






I can’t stop laughing at Harry running the fuck awaythe boy who lived ladies and gentlemen.

….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.

Hermione Granger also: 

  • punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot 
  • purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous) 
  • literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
  • Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”) 
  • Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry 
  • Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else

in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad. 

Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist.

Some of these don’t need to be “re-imagined” to be YA, but we love the covers!

Science will tell you that fey creatures cannot exist, have never stalked your path, gulping when your heart contracts, exhaling when it expands.

Science learns new things about itself daily, and will be the first to say, “Look at this math, it proves a thing. We don’t know…
