I am Done with My Graceless Heart

In case you were wondering where my recent obsession with Jude Law’s personal life came from (you weren’t)… It started here. Never have you seen a man more uncomfortable to admit he has a fourth child.

I’m talking about @ 3:19 -3:37. And then a bit during 9:06 - 9:22. 

I honestly want his youngest to end up famous just so I can watch her make her father nervous in interviews. 

(Edit: Tbf, he seemed happy all his kids were at his party. He just didn’t want to get into specifics lol.)

"Draco balks a little when Dennis asks him to sit. Astoria is firm.

‘For your son, Draco.’ His eyes meet hers, and there’s a current between them and Dennis truly wishes his camera hadn’t been across the room at the moment because that’s the photograph he really wants. Malfoy looks in supplication and regret at his wife and child. An exhausted Astoria with her days-old son in her arms looks back. Go on.

He tries to look arrogant, but there are circles under his eyes and he just looks tired and there’s a shadow of shame lurking somewhere underneath.

When he’s done (it’s a quick photo, and he knows it’s the one) Draco stands and gathers up his wife and son and leaves immediately, his patience with the whole affair spent.

Astoria thanks him while Draco waits in the hall and then she goes, her son drooling onto her expensive robes, asleep and open-mouthed against her chest. She has a very kind smile.”

This is my dog, Lily. My sister and I bought her, without my dads permission and brought her home as a puppy about a year ago. My dad hates her, but me & my 2 sisters love her to death. This dog helps me cope with my depression and shes always great company to my sisters and I. My dad describes her as “tolerable.” Today, after having this dog for over a year, my dad is saying she needs to go, while he is angry at us for bringing her home, she has become part of the family and we can’t get rid of her, it’s too painful. After begging my dad for a while, he was still stuck on getting rid of her. I mentioned tumblr as a final option, and surprisingly he agreed to it. If I can get 200,000 notes by the end of July, we can keep her. He thinks it’s impossible, but I have faith. I’ve seen tumblr do it before. Please guys help me, I love this dog more than myself. Please oh please :c 

ALL OF MY FOLLOWERS BETTER REBLOG THIS

Warning: I’m gonna reblog the shit out of this for the next few days because I think this is such a horrible thing for the Dad to do after they’ve already had the dog for a year.

Warning: this is based on the entire natal chart, not just sun signs, but I think people with a rudimentary understanding of astrology should be able to follow. 

Gryffindor

  • Emphasis on fire signs (Aries, Sag, Leo), especially the fixed sign Leo.
  • Emphasis on the 1st, 5th, and 10th houses (asserting self.)
  • Ascendant in Leo or Sagittarius.
  • Strong Mars (and Jupiter, for strong beliefs and luck.) 
  • Well aspected Sun. 
  • Mars in Leo (but remember there are all types of courage! Mars in Leo is just the most stereotypically Gryffindor.)  

Note: Hermione Granger doesn’t qualify for any of these (unless she’s a Sag rising as I suspect), so there are always exceptions to the rules and this is not a perfect science. 

Ravenclaw

  • Emphasis on air signs (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius), especially the fixed sign Aquarius.
  • Emphasis on the 3rd and 9th houses (the axis of learning), also possibly 7th and 11th houses (relating to others.)
  • Ascendant in Aquarius or Gemini. 
  • Strong Mercury and Uranus. 
  • Mercury in an air sign (especially Aquarius.) But more likely Mercury conjunct an angle?? 

Hufflepuff

  • Emphasis on earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), especially the fixed sign Taurus
  • Emphasis on 12th and 6th house (the axis of service). To a lesser extent, the 7th house (partnership) and 2nd house (managing resources.) 
  • Ascendant in Taurus, Virgo, or Cancer. 
  • Strong Moon and/or Saturn.
  • Moon in Taurus or Virgo. 

Slytherin

  • Emphasis on water signs (Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces), especially the fixed sign Scorpio
  • Emphasis on the 8th and 2nd houses (axis of values and resources), especially the 8th house (legacy, inheritance). The 10th and 4th house axis (10th -ambition, goals, reputation, 4th - family, history, roots.) 
  • Ascendant in Scorpio or Capricorn.
  • Strong Saturn and/or Pluto.   
  • Pluto or Saturn conjunct the Midheaven. 
  • Moon in Scorpio.

These old abandoned suitcases once belonged to patients at Willard Psychiatric Center, New York.

In 1995, workers found the suitcases in a deserted building’s attic when the hospital shut down. The cases had been placed there for storage at some point between 1910 and the 1960s, each one taken from a newly arrived patient. Since people were often sent to the asylum for the rest of their lives (the average stay was over 30 years) and many had left family behind in foreign countries, the suitcases were never reclaimed.

Most of the patients who ended up at Willard were sent there against their will. In the 1950s, it wasn’t difficult for someone to get committed to a mental institution. All that was required was a certificate from a doctor. Many patients were simply rejected by society.

"And, ah! his castle. The faery solitude of the place; with it’s turrets of misty blue, it’s courtyard, it’s spiked gate, his castle that lay on the very bosom of the sea with seabirds mewing about it’s attics, the casements opening onto the green and purple, evanescent departures of the ocean, cut off by the tide from land for half a day… that castle, at home neither on the land nor on the water, a mysterious, amphibious place, contravening the materiality of both earth and the waves, with the melancholy of a mermaiden who perches on her rock and waits, endlessly, for a lover who had drowned who had drowned far away, long ago. That lovely, sad, sea-siren of a place!"

DOMINE DIRIGE NOS | London is a girl with salt water in her veins and flames for hair. She’s a thief in city of thieves, and far too interested in robbing the world blind.

She has been an urchin, in her time. A soldier, a scientist, a spectre of sorts. There are two thousand years of echoes behind her eyes; Roman walls old bones poking through new skin. Her body is a map of scars: burns on her arms, shrapnel working in her back.

She talks to the tower ravens, for all her heart of stone (a literal one too: it’s on Cannon Street), and they reminisce on monarchs past. She has always preferred the writers (whose words cling to her cobbles and catch in her hair) and the artists (who made her in light and shadow).

She is the wild woods grown back in glass and iron.

London isn’t a girl, not really. She has always been calling and burning and falling and breathing fog like dragon smoke.

“But, why? Why must MM, and all women for that matter, have to be so normal? Sure, please the darker desires of that virgin/whore/little girl lost while in bed, but then resent her (or women) for embodying all of those combustible ideals once she’s risen from the sheets and put on her clothes. Though suffering from deep-seated psychological problems that need to be addressed by professionals (but not in an asylum, as in the movie, and, in real life, where Monroe’s mother landed and later, for a spell, Monroe herself), I sense that it’s this type of “normal” pressure that’s making her crack (the punishing and smarmy Cook Jr. doesn’t help either).
Monroe portrays these pressures with beautiful soulfulness, so much so, that I wondered how much of her real life was seeping into her performance. I kept wishing that she could just get out of that hotel, doll herself up and have some fun with a man who might understand her, or a woman for that matter…”  - “The Nonconformist: Norma Jeane Nell” by Kim Morgan [x]
