Cosmogyros

Fitzcarraldo, drinking toast after toast: "To your dogs' cook. To Verdi. To Rossini. To Caruso."
Other guy, raising his glass: "To Fitzcarraldo, Conquistador of the Useless. Cheers!"
Fitzcarraldo: "As true as I am standing here, one day I shall bring grand opera to Iquitos. I will outnumber you. I will outbillion you. I am the spectacle in the forest. I am the inventor of rubber. I will outrubber you. Sir, the reality of your world is nothing more than a rotten caricature of great opera."

    Special thanks to this post by notbecauseofvictories, without it I would’ve cried a lot due to my lack of knowledge of other types of medias containing things about angels outside of Good Omens and Supernatural. 

    Also if you ever need help with writing or anything like that feel free to ask me! I have a crap load of resources and am somewhat knowledgeable about writing in general uwu.

    jaegerrrrr:

    yknow who needs some support? aromantic people.we grow up in a society where we’re taught that being in love is the best thing in the world and falling in love and getting married and having kids is literally the only thing you should want in life. and for aromantic people, or anyone on the aromantic spectrum, that’s just really, really shitty.

I reckon if more people understood this there would be a lot less victim blaming when it comes to rape.
