Thank you! And interesting question!
I’m probably in the minority who thinks she loved him in season 6, only she was confused and depressed to recognize it and admit it, she was in a very extreme denial. She knew that she was not supposed to have feelings for him - except disgust - but she was drawn to him, and this dilemma - “I want to be with him, but good slayers can’t be with evil vampires because I will be judged and dishonored” - really screwed her up. I’ve always interpreted her "I can’t love you" line in “As you were” (as opposed to “I don’t love you”, which she said a bit later, to discourage him completely) not as “I’m not able to love you” but as “I can’t allow myself to love you”. Because otherwise I can’t explain her behavior in “Hell’s Bells” and “Entropy” - she was hurt and jealous, and I don’t think you feel something like that after you stopped screwing your fuck buddy. So yeah. She repressed her feelings because of her conditioning that vampires without a soul are not the ones you should have fuzzy feelings toward.
After Spike got his soul, she felt like the main reason for repressing her true feelings - him being evil - was gone, but there were a lot of other residual issues that kept her from admitting it to herself, though she allowed slips like the one you mentioned - “still in love”, for example.
I think what happened in ‘Chosen’, is that she had an epiphany. When they clasped their hands, and she got this look on her face,
she thought “to hell with all the reasons why I shouldn’t love this man. I love him, and I’ll be damned if I don’t tell him about it”.
when you breeze through
to your appointments
the work you do
I’m collecting you
shocked to see how much people donated to Darren Wilson. It’s crazy
This is nothing short of deplorable.
The fact that he even got one cent.
i ask again why are they raising money in wilson’s favor for
what does he need money for
it’s thank you money
thank you for killing another black guy
fuck white ppl
whatsername // green day
thought i ran into you down on the street
then it turned out to only be a dream
i made a point to burn all of the photographs
she went away and then i took a different path
i remember the face but i can’t recall the name
now i wonder how whatsername has been
i will return to gondor, says boromir, and aragorn is silent (but watches him closely and thinks of their ancestors — his and boromir’s, and what they would say of this tangle of inheritance)
i will reclaim the mountain, says thorin, and balin is silent (but watches thorin as thorin leads, and balin a step behind; and he thinks of the line of durin and the ancestors who cannot say anything of this fool-driven quest, for they perished all of their own foolishnesses)
boromir reaches for the ring and it leads him to his death; thorin reaches for the mountain, for the gold, for the arkenstone, and he brings his heirs into death with him
boromir reaches for honor and wealth; thorin reaches for inheritance and power; both are lured by the means, the gold that blinds to all green and growing things
boromir whispers my king, i would have followed you to victory, and lies on a forest floor far from home; thorin whispers o hobbit, i would have seen your peace, and lies on a rocky battlefield outside the mouth of his mountain; both never to see their homelands again, though neither belong truly to those places
you are not yourself, hears boromir, and thinks who am i then, if not myself, king of stewards, favored son, who has been given the burden of hope by his father? who am i to ignore my duty in favor of halflings?
you are not yourself, hears thorin, and thinks who am i then, if not king of the mountain, heir of durin, favored by prophecy, who have come this far and endured so much? who am i to cease fighting here, at the doorstep of my fate?
it is only in the last breath before the final blow, before the first arrow, that they realize: they are protectors of family and comrades; they are servants of their peoples; they are led astray by pride; they are gold-blind, power-hungry; they are fools. they are not kings.
i am no thief, says boromir, for denethor taught him well that any tool may be of use in keeping their line on the throne, and what is a hobbit to claim ownership of such a thing? a kind soul, surely, but not mankind who understands better the weight of gold: weight that barely keeps denethor on his throne and boromir in his status
i am not my grandfather, says thorin, for his grandfather is dead of pride and rage; but thorin has spent too long planning vengeance to be full of nothing but rage and pride. too long leading his people, providing for family, remembering the dead.
no, this is not who they are.
P.S. A lot of people with depression and other mental illnesses have trouble making decisions or choosing from a bunch of different options. “Wanna get dinner at that pizza place on Tuesday night?” is a LOT easier to answer than “So wanna hang out sometime? What do you want to do?”
Oh my god this is so true and amazing and I love it.(via thegreatandpowerfulog)
But you’re… you’re just a girl.
That’s what I keep saying.

Girls like her turn into women with eyes like bullet holes and mouths made of knives. They are always restless. They are always hungry. They are bad news. They will drink you down like a shot of whisky. Falling in love with them is like falling down a flight of stairs.
what guys say PMS does:
- turns women into emotional bitches
what PMS actually does:
- increases breast size from retaining water
- increases sex drive
- lowers a woman’s tolerance for sexism
also it ups our testosterone levels which makes their complaints incredibly ironic
