"I have (X phobia)"

"Haha but why are you afraid of that?! It’s not scary!"

I don’t fucking know it’s an irrational fear that’s why it’s called a phobia you codfish

caterjunes:

"can i come in?"

"i don’t know, can you?”

cursing quietly, the vampire backed away, foiled yet again by the english teacher’s pedantry

lumos5001 asked: sometimes when I read the responses to your asks they remind me of Lemony Snicket and the way he writes. have you ever considered a team up with him because I think the results would be amazing.

We are planning a team up — on stage. At BAM in Brooklyn…

Authors Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) and Neil Gaiman come together for a unique, totally unpredictable, and no-holds-barred evening of mayhem, in which the longtime friends and occasional collaborators ask each other questions about literature—or swordfight to the death.

We are keeping our options open.

A trip down sensory lane.

Filmmakers take note- This five second scene not only fully describes a characters backstory, but the entire reason he acts the way he acts through the film, taking him from a villain to a sympathetic character and justifying a total reversal of his actions in the present. In five seconds, this movie does for the development of a character more than most movies do in two hours. This is why you should be studying Disney and Pixar along with Martin Scorsese and Stanley Kubrick, and ignoring professors and elitist students who deride them as “kids stuff.”

wasn’t there a theory that Anton’s childhood cottage is the cottage Remy learned his craft from eavesdropping inside before travelling to Paris, and the recipe he’s tasting really is his mother’s ratatouille?

WHAT

YES
