“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

I post and reblog: things I think are pretty, things that intrigue me, things I'm a fan of, and things I care about.

Common themes include: books, writing, movies, more books, cozy beds, breakfasts, Doctor Who, Sherlock, feminist issues, and occasional pieces of my life.

"You would look just as fairly beautiful as you are" "I don’t know what it is about you that closes as and opens" "You are exquisite Bel Rowley" "I hate you" "You’re brilliant Freddie" "I miss you" "You’re possible with me" "I love you Freddie Lyon" "Just please come home. Now. Soon. And maybe your courage will make me brave, too. Just come home, and I will leap too." "Moneypenny"

Ecstatic. We wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, with anyone else.

Why do we have to be married? or not married? Why can’t we do what the hell we like? Men can. They can sleep with woman without getting a name for themselves, they can have careers. Well, I am going to do exactly what I like and to hell with the rest of them.

"Female ambition is such a complicated thing to play because it is an aggressive quality and people respond very badly to women exhibiting any kind of aggression. Actually when I play Bel at her most assertive, every single director we have had on The Hour has said to me, ‘That was really great but can you do it again and make her a bit less aggressive?’ Yet I know if it was a male character that kind of ambition would be perceived as strength." — Romola Garai (via upsanta)
