That which the Sea Breaks Against

Gabrielle :) Sometimes my brain is congested, it coughs, and words come out

“May the memory of this moment, here, the glowing impression of the two of us facing each other in this warm, bright place drinking lovely hot tea, help save him, even a little bit.”

– Banana Yoshimoto, Kitchen (via writingwillows)

Oh god guys. JK Rowling is a genius, and so is this person.

the thing I love about this fandom is that there are 7 books and 8 movies to observe. so every once in a while some blessed soul finds a piece of information that makes all the magic resurface again

Mind. Blown. 

Oh Lord…it’s a metaphor too. It’s symbolic of Neville holding on to his past, the horrors of what happened to his parents, of being a passive vessel for that atrocity. As if the terrible thing kept happening and would never stop happening. 
When he moves forward and becomes part of his own story instead of the story of his past, his strength surges. 



TEAM NEVILLE FOR LIFE

It also shows that if you give a kid the wrong tool, he may be a genius but he’s never going to be able to build something with it.

There are sufferings that have lost their memory
and do not remember why they are suffering.

If I could offer a young person advice about anything it would be do NOT make life decisions based on your boyfriend or girlfriend. Girls especially. Do NOT stay close to home for him, do not skip opportunities to travel or study abroad, do not pick a safe college to be with him. Expand your horizons. Broaden your own life. He is not the world.

This though

esn13:

the President ran out of the room
to detach his hands and throw them away; this country

runs on unoiled cogs— They know, They know—
and They are tired too, but

who will listen? not God, who is
too busy trying to pay off the debt
he garnered when he
bought the largest of all lands, nor

the walls the borders are built with.

the President ran out of the room
to splash cold water on his face. we found him

shot,
a bullet in his chest

(and grease between
his toes).

esn13:

Funeral whites
painted across our backs
as we lie
side by side
and play dead.

Oh, the dance we dance
so morbid
makes a
coffin of your bed;

it would be too much to
ask for you to stay a while, so
I place my mouth
over yours
and keep
a breath with me instead.

(— no matter how loud the dissonance is now,
at least we’ll rhyme the end.)
