236 Seconds Of Friends
Summer is over and Nashville returns this week… That’s crazy! I think this year I’m going to return to watching without knowing any summaries or spoilers. It will allow me to go back to watching each episode on the edge of my seat and allow my emotional involvement to return to an all time high. I’m still toying with the idea of doing a weekly podcast post-episode however I don’t know that I will be able to start that this week because one of my best friend’s is having her wedding this Friday. Oh, and I no longer have cable so unless I can find a site that streams the show as it is airing I will have to wait and watch each episode on Thursday.
#how do you think it must have felt to rose#to have someone say this to her#the girl who’s mom didn’t want her ‘putting on airs’#the girl with the boyfriend who was a better friend than lover#the girl everyone didn’t expect much from#because she was the girl who dropped out of school for a stupid boy#the girl with bleached blonde hair who lives on an estate#the girl who was just there and probably will always be just there#then she met this crazy man and he showed her the universe#fantastic and amazing things#but to him .. it would all mean nothing#if he lost her (via)
"Barnes is the only Howling Commando to give his life in service to his country."
The truth in this statement despite the different circumstances hurts my soul.

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture.
So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.
Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome.
So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.
So, whoever this is, I just saw this. I never had the little “1” over my inbox letting me know that someone sent me anything. It seems that this was sent a couple of months ago but still, thank you for your concern. I’ve been great. I ended up getting enveloped back into the RP world here on tumblr and therefore went missing from here. I try and find a balance between the two but can never seem to achieve it. One top of all of that there has been a lot of events going on the past few months that made things crazy. I’m sure, whoever you are, that I miss you too!

The most powerful things in a movie are when she reaches back in the airplane and holds his hand in Out of Africa.
It’s just wordless, it’s the thing that’s unsaid and left out. - Meryl Streep

Cares far too much about fictional characters and not enough about life.
