Woohoo! Of course the answers to these change about every 6 months but as of right now these are my answers. Naturally, I wrote too much. d
6. top 5 romantic ships
In no particular order, I’d say:
Anne/Gilbert - Anne of Green Gables (My absolute fave!)
Emma/Knightley; Cher/Josh - Emma and Clueless (I can’t choose between these)
Anastasia/Dimitri - Anastasia (when I first fell in love with an animated fictional character…)
Veronica/Logan - Veronica Mars
Dan/Blair -Gossip Girl…because I hate myself
and because I can’t ever follow the rules, a few I’m currently loving:
Mindy/Danny - The Mindy Project
Rae/Finn - My Mad Fat Diary
Abbie/Ichabod - Sleepy Hollow
Frank/Clare - House of Cards
Felicity/Oliver - Arrow
7. top 5 platonic ships
Joan/Sherlock - Elementary
Ten/Donna - Doctor Who (ngl, I kind of romantically ship them too though)
Buffy/Giles - Buffy
Anne/Diana (+ Anne/Marilla and Anne/Matthew) - Anne of Green Gables
Scott/Stiles - Teen Wolf. I feel weird for putting this one, since I just started watching the show, but I have to say, as ridiculous as a lot of things on the show are, this is a really touching, well-written relationship.
10: favorite movie ship
The Titanic! Get it? Favorite movie ship ahahahahahahaha,
I’m HI-LAR-IOUS (and a little tipsy…)
Outside of the movie ones I’ve already mentioned, I will have to go with Kathleen Kelly and Joe Fox from You’ve Got Mail. It’s cheesy, it’s predictable, I don’t care.
You may not know this about me based on what I post here, but I have quite a hoard of cosmetics (mostly nail polish lbr). I have a bunch of samples and stuff taking up space all over (oh the benefits of working cosmetics retail), and I think they need to move on to a new home where they can be appreciated better.
Commence Giveaway! Reblog or like this post before February 7th midnight PST and I’ll randomly select someone to get a box of fun stuff in the mail (I’d prefer to ship to the US). You don’t have to follow me (unless you want to and love Jane Austen!) and if you already do, I love you :)
Below the cut is an itemized list.
Ok, so I’m watching finally watching Teen Wolf. I just started season 3, and I have to say, that I find myself strangely attracted to Allison’s father more than any of the younger guys. Is that it? Am I officially too old for teen shows?
"The truth is a member of our family is leaving. For a year, maybe more. Psychology has taught me the human mind has a tendency to re-channel separation anxiety in the form of frivolity and giddiness. And I don’t want us to waste our chance to acknowledge how much we’re gonna miss you."
In some older versions of Persephone’s story, she was a young woman, not a young girl, and instead of accidentally wandering away, she had gone deliberately adventuring, when she fell, or was lured, or was kidnapped into Hell. Here Persephone’s adventurous spirit leads her into difficulty, instead of her being a passive victim of the wickedness of others. Her relationship with her mother gives her the courage to explore her world, and when events take a bad turn, their relationship gives her the strength to survive.
In a still older version, Persephone heard the despairing cries of the dead and chose freely to go into the Underworld to comfort them. Hades does not appear at all, in this version. Here Persephone’s descent to hell illustrates inclusiveness for every being, whether in the Underworld or in our present one, and shows that mercy is integral to her nature.
In the most ancient layer of myth, Persephone’s name means “She Who Destroys The Light.” She was the powerful Goddess of the Underworld long before anyone knew of Hades. Like the Indian Kali, the Irish Morrigan, and the Sumerian Ereshkegal, she was the Goddess of Death.
