Our distance kept growing and you did nothing to stop it. You watched us grow apart and you didn’t fight for it.
but it’s okay
you were one of those people
one of those friends
i would have desperately held on to
if only i knew you were holding on,
but there was no clinging to each
other, ever, just the talks
late at night
once a week
until we were just too busy
and we looked back, tiny specks
on the horizon
honestly, i just didn’t want to
do the half-hearted catching
and neither did you,
and that’s ok, too.
I was sitting in a cafe today and was about to order a coffee, and I saw these two girls a few tables over, laughing and smiling and touching each other’s shoulders when they said something particularly witty. I thought of you, and I ordered a tea instead.
Isn’t that the definition of…

Please don’t deny the love we once had, it’s a part of me that loved you before.

Ummm…I am so VERY into this right now!
But Black people in period or fantasy settings totally makes the stories unreal.
Also holy shit I love these.
How come I don’t run across this stuff regularly?
Because of racism and the retroactive erasure of POC in Medieval Europe. Pretty much the same reason you almost never see these works of art either unless you’re already looking for them:
But it’s SOOOOOOOOOOO UNREALISTIC TO SEE BLACK PEOPLE IN MEDIEVAL EUROPE!!!!
Two scientists walk into a bar
The first scientist says ‘I’ll have a glass of H2O”
The second scientist says ‘I’ll have a glass of water too. Wh… why did you say H2O? Like, I know it’s the chemical formula for water and all, but it’s the end of the day and there’s really no need to intentionally over-complicate things like that in a situation outside of work”
The first scientist stares at his drink, angry that his assassination plan has failed.
I want Hannibal to be
morelike Bewitched and I Dream a Genie, with bored house-husband/cannibal Hannibal Lecter and his spunky sidekick/sociopath Abigail.
And they can always be getting into comedic shenanigans when every episode they plot another gory murder that goes hilariously awry. Like that time with the kidnapped toddler, when Abigail was like “Goodness gracious, Hannibal! I think it swallowed Will’s pet box turtle!” Or when they thought they chloroformed that smarmy used car salesman and Abigail was like “That’s not Rex Turner, that’s the mayor!”
And at the end of every episode, an exasperated Will always cleans his glasses frazzedly and wags his finger and says the show’s catchphrase “This better be pork, mister!”
I suggest all females watch this.
*i suggest all humans watch this.
THIS SHOULD BE REQUIRED WATCHING FOR ALL HUMANS
I’m a 17 year old white guy living in middle class America. I’ve never exactly been a supporter of feminism because that kind of thing has never really affected me personally. I don’t notice it and I don’t care about it. But in nine minutes this video has made what is truly a serious problem extremely apparent. Those “why I need feminism” posts or those slut-shaming or rape culture campaigns never convince me of anything. But this video actually did I think.
tl;dr This video kicks ass, just watch it.
Public schools can get a free copy-worthwhile viewing!
