and look i know that code name verity for the amount that it will make you dehydrate from emotion cannot possibly be a nice or a fun book but like oh god it is so brilliant and affirming and iT IS A TRIUMPH OF THE HUMAN SPIRIT and i mean this for real it is A TRIUMPH OF THE LESBIAN HUMAN SPIRIT it is about how when you love someone like when two girls love each other so deeply and enormously and compassionately and brightly as these girls love each other then you can become heroic and good and brave even when you are afraid and even when you are utterly without hope and you can believe in life after love and know that your actions have significance and you are important even when you are small and someone loved you and you are worthy of that love

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting—
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

LITERALLY EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PAIRING DEVASTATES ME TO MY CORE, AND NOW I AM GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT

she loves him, this fascinating peculiar human-shaped thing who always looks so surprised when she laughs at his jokes, who sits on her father’s throne and holds her kingdom ransom but in private stutters when she comes near him. but she still decides to leave because he is cursed and cruel and not right, and she doesn’t want to stay if there is no hope for him, she deserves to be happy and free. and she comes back because regina tells her that true love’s kiss can make him whole again, make him real and touchable and lovable, and obviously that’s belle, have you seen her, come on

and oh my god she sees it as saving him, and he sees it as destroying him, cutting down his power, making him human and fragile and useless again, and alone and afraid, because now maybe he’s alone but he’s still the mightiest, and why would you be human if you’re just going to be pathetic and who would ever love him, certainly not this bright shining powerhouse of a girl, he’s a difficult man to love so he’s going to be a monster, monsters only need fear

and belle thinks this is BULLSHIT she thinks he’s a COWARD and how dare he insinuate that she doesn’t actually love him or want to kiss his strange rough sparkly mouth, belle does what she goddamn wants, that’s why she came with him, that’s why she laughs at his jokes, that’s why she decided to leave, that’s why she came back. belle is a hero and a relentless selfish force, her motivation for coming with him is save my family, sure, but it’s also MY CHANCE TO BE A HERO, my chance to prove in this shitty sexist world that i can be brave and mighty too

and now belle wants him and stalks him around the table, sits next to him and touches his leg and finds out she can turn him human and kisses him to make it so and poor rumpie just can’t believe it, would rather be vicious and alone and a monster than a man and a fool, and he tells her to leave and she does

and if we don’t see her again coming back to fix all this bullshit and take what’s hers, her power and her story and her strange funny wicked man, i will destroy everything you’ve ever loved

did you know

that if you bash a ship in your fandom, the shipping fairy grants a point to your ship and a magical epic-length fic is born~

haha j/k! No, bashing other ships is awful, actually!

The weird thing for me is that my kids, or our kids, are around the same ages that we were when we first did that scene on 9 3/4.  And Rose is a little bit older, but Ryan, who plays Hugo, who’s my son, I think he’s just coming up to 9, which is how old I was when I first started this.  And seeing them, and seeing how excited they are and talking to them about their experiences is really weird.  It’s kind of cyclical, it’s like we’ve gone full circle.  It was the first time that it really hit me that it was going to be over.  And it brought back memories of the very beginning, when it was kind of so amazing, and I was just so in awe of it all.  And, you know, I think I just realized how incredible it all was.

has anyone read Margaret Mahy’s The Changeover? It is this fabbity fab YA about a girl who becomes a witch to save her little brother’s life, and there’s this moment where she describes how when her little brother was “just learning how to kiss,” his kiss was more of an little sweet soft mouth press than an actual kiss
and that is what this reminds me of
