I wear pants in a loving relationship.
I like cats, pretty ladies, and thousands of other things.
I'm contemplating making this more of a personal blog and less of just reblog, but we'll see. ..

Armor-clad wenches 03
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST
Before you fuck up and call her anything less than her name, before you grab her by the arm you need to know the trigger that you are pulling at. You need to know that the safety is never on. You need to know her history before you tell me that this isn’t my business. You need to know that her history is my history.
See, she and I, we come from the tribe of raw knuckled little girls who call our father by their first names and wear their mothers like bruise coloured war paint under eye. We grew thick skin before we grew permanent teeth. We learned to piece together our own families in the backyards of rented duplexes where we promised plastic faced babies better things in soothing tones that we mimicked from TV. We do not have daddy issues even though our daddy’s have issues. We have piercing eyes and promises to keep. We grew up to be nomads surveying domestic war zones with black eyeliner binoculars, always refusing to camouflage. We threw our heads back and laughed at oncoming explosions, never flinched, absorbing shrapnel, never let them see us cry.
We do not dream of boys who will save us from towers. We dream of boys with courage caked under their fingernails. Boys with hands rough enough to wipe metal tears from our faces but warm enough to mold them into stars. Boys with vertebrae strong enough to lock with ours so they can sleep sitting back to back with us and keep watch. And these are the boys, these are the boys who will find love under our armor. These are the boys who will find that we love selectively but we love fiercely. These are the boys who will learn that we love in ways that leave claw marks down the baseboard before we ever let go.
So do not think she doesn’t know how you fear her absence - you should. Your cage is not stronger than her will or her smile. Do not think you are good enough to tame her. You aren’t. And do not think you are the first to try because i have already closed your eyes and crossed your arms before your body hit the floor. And you think she deserves better than you. You are right. So be better than you.
Be thankful that she knows your name and be careful never to forget hers.Rachel fucking Wiley (via queenofthewest)
Ariko Inaoka - Erna and Hrefna (2009-10) - Erna and Hrefna are eleven years old Icelandic identical twins
The relationship between identical twins is interesting subject matter. I often hear that identical twins have telepathic connections benveen them. This is true with Error and Hrefna. They are always together. They almost never fight each other. Spending time with them, I feel such comfort in their companionship but at the same time I feel arrange because I have not seen such a powerful connection between any can human beings. They say to me, ” We dream some dreams sometimes.”
