"If people ever look down upon you for crying for fictional characters, you should give them a gentle, pitying look and feel bad for them. If they’ve never cried for a fictional character, then they’ve never loved one (and what a joy that is). If they’ve never cried at a book, a movie, a piece of music, then they’ve missed one of the great pleasures life has to offer. Just because fiction does not contain things that are real doesn’t mean it doesn’t contain truth, and we find it through the alchemy of our tears. "
Had Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper not done so well in the first series there wouldn’t be a 10th, 11th or 12th Doctor. Respect the first series and don’t skip it.
FUCKING THANK YOU

I still believe that somewhere in the TV universe, Jess & Rory are somewhere together.

This is the ABSOLUTE LAST post I will respond to about bloody Warner from Shatter Me. I’m done with this. If you disagree fine. But, Warner is the villain of book 1. He’s not simply an antagonist or an opposing force. He is the guy who the heroine has to jump out of a window and shoot in order to get away from. This is fact. This is in the pages of Shatter Me.
Let’s get something straight right now… Warner and Edward are not rude to Bella and Juliette. They are abusive. Warner tortures Juliette in book 1 and Edward is controlling and creepy, OH and wants to kill Bella for all of Twilight.
Mr. Darcy is socially awkward. Also, he is prejudiced and proud… he may be my perfect man, but he is not a perfect man and at no point does Jane Austen put him on a pedestal.
Anon, I would recommend you read that book again. Because, Darcy is totes into Elizabeth for a good chunk of the book. Also, it’s called Pride & Prejudice and it’s original title was First Impressions. The reason being is that both Darcy and Elizabeth’s first impressions are wrong and it takes time and understanding for them to see that. When exactly in this novel did he “mistreat” her. Where? When? Why?
The biggest most terrible thing that Darcy does in the book is say that Elizabeth is not beautiful. He does not say this to her face. He says this to his bff in a crowded ball room where he believes no one will hear him. If you have never said something mean about someone else to your bff, then good for you, because the rest of us have done it.
I am not going to go on and on explaining the complexity of Darcy or his dynamic with Elizabeth, because the internet is filled with articles explaining why this is one of the most epic love stories in literature.
I will just say that I am astounded that anyone could not know the difference between mean and abusive. Torture and hurting someone’s feelings. Or how about the difference between character evolution and rewriting history to pander to your fans?
Guys, honestly, no more Warner messages. Seriously, I read those books months ago. I have no idea why it keeps coming up, but I honestly don’t have it in me to continue to argue this. My opinion will not change. I will never agree with you and you will never agree with me. Let’s simply agree to disagree. If I see the name Warner, the titles of those books, etc in one more message, I will ignore it and delete it.
Meet Kayla Sharp – whip smart with nerves of steel, she’s a no-nonsense New Yorker who’s built herself the (almost) perfect life. The only problem? Kayla’s twenty-fifth birthday is on the horizon and she’s never had sex. Never. Not once. Well…fantasies don’t count, right?
Men love Kayla…as a friend. They love working with her and talking with her and hanging with her. But when she’s…
