Me and three friends were sitting on my couch, watching FX. Zohan was on and we were all kinda just vegging out. A commercial break came on and after some weight loss ad, something happened that I would never forget. This was around the time right before American Horror…
come on eileen is the most important song
IT REALLY IS, THOUGH
If I had to pick one image for how tumblr user marygodwinning makes me feel, it would be this one:
Casey is my favourite customer.
okay so this is the tentative track listing for the next mixtape that i’ll put together when it’s not 4:20 in the morning and i’m trying to be vaguely reasonable
It’s three-thirty am and I am literally crying about the Shelleys what are you doing?
when I commit to a person, I FUCKING COMMIT. if their depression, anxiety or life comes knocking, you bet your ass i’m at the door with a double sided axe waiting for a good fight.
you cant expect people, to always be happy, even if they are in love. because life doesn’t stop for anyone. But you can be there for the good fight.
yemite replied to your post “Basically, in response to my previous tags, if you think that Mary and…”
Your tags made me cry they are the literal epitome of Romanticism such beauty so terror their relationship is wholly sublime in the fullest possible sense of the word.
yesyesyesyesyes pre ci s ely such
at every stage
even when you look at when their relationship was at its most strained in 1820 they were still reading together and writing together and in their private writings everything in regard to the other was the manifest of their feelings of isolation and repulsion (not in disgust, but in the magnetic sense) in spite of being so near and wanting to find commonality again
the doodles of the distorted other
the lines about re-teaching the other how to love again
everything amounted to desire and desiring the other and valuing the other ugh ugh ugh
Basically, in response to my previous tags, if you think that Mary and Shelley were in a poor/one-sided/abusive relationship I will literally fight you because you could not be more wrong
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was first and foremost her mother’s daughter and while very keen to being the Quiet Observer in life had literally zero problem with calling out bad behavior in men very fucking publically
she literally dedicated Frankenstein to her father even though Safie’s father is a word-for-word literal transcript of exactly how controlling and manipulative and inconsistent William Godwin was
the entire book is about an absentee father failing to step up to fill either parental role
Mary Shelley had zero fucking problems with calling out abuse and gtting the hell out of an abusive situation is what I’m saying
lol when people say the Romantics were all about death and no romantic love bc they were ~~above~~ all that shit
joke’s on you buddy mary godwin and percy shelley literally went on dates to her mom’s grave
if that doesn’t seem little r romantic AND capital R Romantic to you well i just would not date you
… so basically prescriptivists can go fly off into their magical binary land or whatever
