repress:

Do you ever want to talk to someone but

1) You feel like you’re bothering them or coming off clingy
2) You don’t have anything to say, you just want to talk to them
3) You don’t know how to hold a conversation to save your life

In the books, Hermione’s boggart is failing her classes. Her greatest fear is failing her classes.
However, it goes a lot deeper than that. Subconsciously, I think she believes that if she does not do well and if she fails, they’ll kick her out of Hogwarts and the Wizarding World. So her real fear isn’t failing.
At Hogwarts, she has two wonderful friends who love her, and she is getting to live in an incredible world. She doesn’t want to lose that, and she thinks that if she does bad in her classes, they won’t let her come back.
Her real fear is rejection and loss.

so what if…
when in the philosophers stone her line “we could be killed, or worse.. expelled” wasn’t her being snooty or a teachers pet..
but her saying that she would rather die than stop going to hogwarts and never see her friends again?

why

  #Harry Potter    #hermione granger    #why are you doing this to me    #right in the feels  
Deathless is a retelling of Persephone being stolen away by Hades, condemned to stay once she had eaten his food…of Adam and Eve and the snake (where Ivan is Adam and Eve is actually better off for eating her forbidden fruit)…it is absolutely a retelling of Psyche and Cupid (where Baba Yaga is Venus sending her daughter-in-law on quests to prove herself)…of Alice in Wonderland…of Peter Pan where Marya is Wendy and Tinker Bell and the hero all at once…and of course it is a retelling of Russia’s history itself where Marya is Russia struggling to truly understand and know her identity under the systematic oppression of man after man who believes he knows what is right for her. Marya is and probably always will be my favorite female characters in any medium of storytelling. […]

Koschei teaches Marya [that] you must embrace what you are as you are. The dark in you is what makes you wonderful. You are everything you fear and everything you love, stop running from that. Revel in it. Embrace your desires, do not run from them. Only then will life open up to you.

And this is really my favorite thing about Deathless, even though there are thousands of things I could go on and on about: It is Marya’s story, and her one true love is her own life (for Koschei is of course symbolic of the force of life itself). She loves Ivan but he is undependable and weak and he will never be enough because he is a human, mortal man. And she is constantly trying to balance both of those things, to figure out how to belong both to her own life and to her lover. And in the end, it is not her lover that wins. In the end, we finally send the right message to young women, that they cannot rely on and dedicate themselves completely to a man. That they are allowed to be vulnerable and innocent and jaded and clever and confused and strong and broken and angry and cruel and dark and proud and dirty and vain and humiliated and powerful (after a million and one moves and stories and shows depicting any woman in power as evil) and masculine and feminine and still have worth. That their own lives and identities are of chief importance, their stories are whole and perfect and beautiful and are worth telling all on their own without romance being necessary or the primary focus of their identities.

Daenerys Targaryen meme + (2/8) relationships ► Silver

The descent was steep and rocky, but Dany rode fearlessly, and the joy and the danger of it were a song in her heart. All her life Viserys had told her she was a princess, but not until she rode her silver had Daenerys Targaryen ever felt like one.
