You’re not a REAL Gatsby fan unless you’ve read the book. Unless you’ve read every Fitzgerald book. Unless you’ve read their early drafts, mailed to you by Fitzgerald himself. Unless you first read Gatsby when Scott handed it to you in a Parisian bar in 1925, apologising for the cover when he saw you disapproved. Unless you embarked on an intense friendship with him that culminated in rumours that you two were having a clandestine homosexual affair. Unless you once took him to the Louvre so you could prove to him that his penis wasn’t any smaller than those on the statues there. Unless Scott turned up, drunk and uninvited, at your house so many times that you had to move more than once. Unless you continued to exchange increasingly infrequent and terse letters with him for the rest of his life, then missed his funeral because you were in Cuba. Unless you called his literary talent “as natural as the pattern that was made by the dust on a butterfly’s wings” and won a Nobel prize and wrote For Whom The Bell Tolls. That’s right, you poser, if you’re not Ernest Hemingway you can fuck straight off right now. We’re on to you.
I don’t know why wanting power should be a negative thing if the person seeking it has continuously been made powerless to affect his life and circumstance, even to the point of preventing the death of his own family.
Derek Hale seeks power in order to be in control of his own life, not to wield it over others.
it’s weird how people say “follow your dreams” instead of “follow your ambitions” because once i had a dream where i worked for a place that tried to genetically engineer ducks to speak english except the ducks only criticized people’s fashion sense
please follow your dream
It is so incredible and amazing to be able to read literally hundreds of different versions of the same characters falling in love for the first time.
I’m not mad that Amanda Abbington is gonna play Mary Morstan, I’m just kinda disappointed she isn’t going to play a drunken violent Harry Watson brimming with homosexual righteous fury teasing John about being a ‘confirmed bachelor’
Now I think they made a huge casting mistake, indeed!
