Kirsty. 18. I spend most of my time in drama studios and I enjoy making my actors cry. Apparently a cross between Geoffrey Tennant and Jehan Prouvaire. I'm pretty sure I have some Lannister in me somewhere. I get emotional over politics and I have a habit of falling off of roofs when I'm drunk.

Are we a lost generation of our people? Add us to equations but they’ll never make us equal. She who writes the movie owns the script and the sequel. So why ain’t the stealing of my rights made illegal? They keep us underground working hard for the greedy, But when it’s time pay they turn around and call us needy.
March to the streets ‘cause I’m willing and I’m able. Categorize me, I defy every label. And while you’re selling dope, we’re gonna keep selling hope. We rising up now, you gotta deal you gotta cope. Will you be electric sheep? Electric ladies, will you sleep? Or will you preach?(x)
Mary keeps it fresh, keeps it sunnah, and keeps it punk rock. She wears matte-black hijabs, kills at slam poetry, and breaks from handing out pamphlets on intersectional feminism and its place in the Kingdom of God to perform salat. James and John hover protectively around her as she prostrates herself in midday prayer, and then they step back when she climbs up on her orange crate to unleash her message of radical love to the masses. Peter may be Yeshua’s right hand and Judas his ever-loyal foil, but Mary is as good as his sister. They say he cast seven demons out of her once; on the subway ride from downtown to the boroughs; but neither of them are telling. Either way, they are inseparable and she sits at his feet when he teaches in the street and stands ram-rod straight at his side during rallies. Mary has a spirit bountiful in compassion, a hunger for holiness, and a heart the bleeds for the downtrodden and the apostles love her for it. They need her maternal warmth and biting wit and ability to chastise Yeshua out of those withdrawn moody spells he gets himself into. She is their strength; painting her nails with halal polish at dinner and bringing home skinny crustpunks for bread and blessings. And no one would dare speak a word against her…Well, Peter did once; hissing something in a jealous moment about her treacherous femininity and untrustworthy religion. Yeshua may have spent the next two days in penitence but that didn’t stop him from giving Peter a black eye. Mary laughed when she heard about it, bought them a round of beers and insisted that Yeshua stop punishing himself. “Everybody gets heated sometimes,” she said. “Even prophet boys with slow tempers. Maybe that’s why I’m here. To remind you that it’s alright to be human sometimes.’
I think I shall start using The Secret History as a measuring stick. For instance, on a scale of getting drunk in the middle of the day to Dionysian rituals, how bad of an idea is x? Or you could use its characters to explain moods. How are you feeling? “Pre-Hampden Richard” (read: lonely and full of angst).
whether or not you like gale hawthorne is irrelevant to me, like or dislike who you want, but don’t act like he was a piece of shit. this is the dude that assumed the role as man of the house at 14 when his dad died, risked his damn neck by hunting illegally (which is punishable by death) and applied for tesserae several times so his siblings would NEVER have to, promised Katniss her mother and sister wouldn’t go hungry if she didn’t make it out of the games because he would help take care of them. when katniss told him she wanted to run away so snow couldn’t fuck with them, gale said he couldn’t go because pretty much it wasn’t right to save his own skin when everyone else in the districts would still be put through hell every day, and when the bombs were dropping on district 12, he got out as many people as he could (nearly 800, according to sources).
soooooo i mean, congrats on your disdain, but it doesn’t equate to shit where he’s concerned.
