I lean in closer and closer to your face and looks you straight in the eye. Slowly, I proceed to kiss you. Just a touch on the lips. “Good night Jasmine.”
Nights like these when I feel like everything’s falling apart, then you come to me like a superhero. For almost 11 years that I’ve known you and for the 7 years we’ve been close, you were always there for me. Even if I broke your heart 3 times already, you never really left. I know you wouldn’t be able to read this, and this will be buried underneath my reblogs, and of course no one knows about us that much. But I want you to know, that whatever happens. Whatever we face, how much the both of us feel like vomiting when we become sweet or cheesy, I love you. And I look forward to the day that I will be able to show the world how much I will always love you. To someone who’s reading this, you may wonder who this person is. ‘Cause right now, it’s enough that we have our own little world.
BUT THE ACTING HERE. BECAUSE HE’S DIGORY. AND HE BUILT THAT WARDROBE. WITH THE WOOD FROM THE TREE HE PLANTED. AND SO HE KNOWS IT’S NARNIA. HE’S WAITED HIS WHOLE LIFE, AND HE’S PROBABLY GIVEN UP AND SHOVED THAT HOPE AWAY IN THE BACK OF HIS MIND AND SUDDENLY THESE FOUR CHILDREN SHOW UP AND THEY FIND IT.
Fun fact: CS Lewis based the professor on JRR Tolkien. Tolkien in turn based Treebeard on CS Lewis.
that is a very fun fact yes
"Don’t you think it’s better to be extremely happy for a short while, even if you lose it, than to be just okay for your whole life?"
"Don’t be afraid of enemies who attack you. Be afraid of the friends who flatter you."
Qian Hongyan was just four when she lost both her legs. A speeding trucker left her for dead as she crossed the main road in her village of Zhuangshang in southern China.
For nearly two years Qian was immobile as she didn’t even have enough of her body left to sit up in a wheelchair. Doctors said her only hope of being able to move by herself again would be extensive surgery to allow her to be fitted with prosthetic limbs.Her parents couldn’t afford this treatment.
Qian’s granddad Yuan came up with a simple but effective treatment to get her moving again. He took a basketball the village boys had discarded and cut a hole just big enough for tiny Qian to fit into, padded the inside with stiff floor mats from his car, then propped her up inside. All of a sudden Qian was able to stabilize herself and was able to by move herself by rolling the ball in any direction she wanted. She supported herself using wooden handles.
From that day on Qian would not be stopped by any obstacle. She went back to school, started to play with her friends again, and started to get back the life of any girl her age. She began professional swimming training in 2007 and defied the odds of her double amputation to become one of the first members of the Yunnan Youth Swimming Club.
She won three gold medals in last year’s Yunnan Para Games and took a gold and two silver medals at the National Swimming Championship for the Disabled (Under 18) in 2009 before continuing impressively at this year’s Para Games.
I should have added this in the original post but after attention in the Chinese press, Qian traveled to Beijing to receive free artificial limbs at the China Rehabilitation Research Center, a center that has been providing help to the disabled in China for over 20 years. At 18 years old she is ready for her full adult prosthetics.
She didn’t mean James Potter.
She meant Severus Snape.
