imagine a video game where you create a hero whose destiny is to save everyone, but throughout the game you start making harder and more questionable decisions, and the game gets darker and darker. and in the end you’re just standing there, clutching the controller and finally realizing you were playing the villain all along
“Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.”—Meg Cabot (via fictionwritingtips)
No, but the worst thing about being a book lover is that I’m also a clothes lover, and a shoes lover, and a video games lover and and- I’m just in love with everything and this is why I’m broke all the time like fml.
I think of Callie Jacobs from The Fosters, but idk why.
I love Callie! I’m kind of super honoured that I remind you of her because she’s such a strong character whose grown a lot and I love that about her. I do hope I’m not as self destructive as she is when things go wrong though. Thank you!
Also I feel like we’ve talked before my anonymous friend, and if you prefer your anonymity feel free to keep it but I’d be glad to know who you are friend. Either way thank you :)
“Never apologize for how you feel. No one can control how they feel. The sun doesn’t apologize for being the sun. The rain doesn’t say sorry for falling. Feelings just are”— Iain S. Thomas, Intentional Dissonance (via stevenbong)
“If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.”—My doctor when I told her I had no reason to be sad (via hrive-ithiliel)
you all deserve someone who isnt embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, good and bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you. i hope you all find that!!
True story my therapist told me it is 100% natural and healthy to have attachments to fictional characters, especially strong hero types because they may have flaws but in the end they always save the day and some people just need that constant positive force in their life.
“I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.”—note to self (via khadlja)
