The cost of oblivious daydreaming was always this moment of return, the realignment with what had been before and now seemed a little worse. Her reverie, once rich in plausible details, had become a passing silliness before the hard mass of the actual. It was difficult to come back.
Atonement, Ian McEwan (via seaembraces)

Typically I don’t have a blood kink, but this? This ignites a blood kink so huge that even Nosferatu would be like, “Damn gurl calm yo tits.”
# THE MOMENT WHEN YOU DECIDE TO FORGO SEX FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE BECAUSE IT WON'T EVER COMPARE TO THE LIBRARY SCENE IN ATONEMENT # okay not really but it is by far the best sex scene ever on film # normally sex scenes in films tend to embarrass me but this one? i'm only embarrassed because i end up practically catatonic staring at the screen with my mouth hanging open and my face looking like it's either Christmas or Free Porn day # atonement # james mcavoy # keira knightley
# I DO HATE BRIONY BUT AT THE SAME TIME SHE IS JUST A KID # I DON'T CONDONE WHAT BRIONY DID BUT AT THE SAME TIME I UNDERSTAND IT # WHAT MAKES ME HATE HER IS HER REFUSAL TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE TRUTH ONCE SHE REALIZED WHAT SHE HAD DONE # THAT'S WHY I HATE HER # BUT ALL OF THIS? COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED IF THEY HAD JUST TALKED TO HER JESUS FUCK # atonement # lots of feelings
# FUCK YOU BRIONY # OH THAT WAS ALREADY A TAG # GOOD # FUCK YOU BRIONY # YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIES # atonement # briony tallis # elf # buddy the elf
Followers, take a look at this woman. You’re looking at a finely educated woman who has thus far refused to settle down and marry someone who is not her intellectual equal. You’re looking at a woman who despite the walls she’s built around herself (and oh, has she built walls around herself) allowed herself to be open and vulnerable to the point of tears. You’re looking at a woman who despite her privileged upbringing defended the man she loved more than anything not only because she knew he was innocent, but because it was the right thing to do. You’re looking at a woman who refused to bow to her family’s wishes of sweeping the dirty secret under the rug, and cut them from her life without regret. You’re looking at a woman who shunned her upbringing so she could play her part in helping soliders and her community (even if she did find the apartment ghastly). You’re looking at a woman who would have accepted the shame of marrying a “criminal” because society’s perception didn’t matter to her, he did. You’re looking at a woman who had a love that most of us dream of taken away from her too soon, a woman whose life was taken far too soon. You’re looking at a woman who deserved far more than she got, but lived and loved so fiercely, so passionately during that brief time.
You are looking at Cecilia Tallis, and this is a Cecilia Motherfucking Tallis appreciation post.
