“I happen to know what it’s like to ‘deal’ with death all by yourself. Just you and nothing else but the big empty of where everything used to be. It would have been nice, really, really nice, to have had someone there with me…”
“Hey,” Ben said softly. “Hey, Cassie, I didn’t—”
“No, you didn’t. You really didn’t.” Zombie. Because he didn’t have feelings. Dead inside, like a zombie? There were people at Ashpit like that. Shufflers, I called them, human-shaped sackfuls of dust. Something irreplaceable had crumbled inside. Too much loss. Too much pain. Shuffling, black-eyed, slack-jawed mutterers. Was that Ben? Was he a shuffler? Then why did he risk everything to rescue Sam?
“Wherever you were,” Ben said slowly, “we were there, too.” (x)
I thought you had a thing for stronger women.

#THIS GIFSET IS FUCKING IMPORTANT OK??? #Because that line from Slade? #The whole stronger woman bit? #THAT’S LITERALLY WHAT THE MEDIA SOUNDS LIKE #oh STRONGER WOMEN blah blah are only women who kick ass #and women want the ‘stronger woman’ so we’ll make her like a man and totally ignore what we think are the ‘weaker women’ characters #but NO #LOOK AT FELICITY #FUCKING LOOK AT HER #she doesn’t kick ass or beat people up #she’s adorable and funny and cute and loves her dresses and nailpolish #BUT TO SAY THAT SHE IS NOT STRONG #WOULD BE A TREMENDOUS MISCALCULATION #because when it comes down to it #SHE IS JUST A GIRL #BUT SHE’S A GIRL IN CONTROL OF HER OWN LIFE #WHO DEALS WITH SHIT WHEN IT COMES UP #AND THAT IS FUCKING IMPORTANT #AND THERE IS NOTHING STRONGER (via @rosietwiggs)
Little Missing Moments - I love you, Hermione.
“I love you, Hermione,” said Ron, sinking back, rubbing his eyes wearily.
Hermione turned faintly pink, but merely said, “Don’t let Lavender hear you saying that.”
“I won’t,” said Ron into his hands. “Or maybe I will … then she’ll ditch me …”
Best romione book moment ever! Still upset this wasn’t in the movies.
Remus Arthur Potter, you were named after two men who looked out for my safety and cared about my well-being out of altruism and decency rather than because I was a tool for them to use or because I was someone’s son.
