I know lots of things that I didn’t know before.. I know that J.M.Barrie can make me feel less alone. Writing about Snow. I know that, sometimes, people are born and their hearts are too small. I know that when they call you Hopeless, it isn’t because they Hope Less of you, it’s because they want you to Hope More. I know that Prudence was a Lost Girl. I know that there are Dragons who are afraid of fire and I know that the Whale didn’t swallow you, you swallowed the Whale. And that’s why I get that feeling in my tummy, Whales know things that people don’t.
“The unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone. She was very old, though she did not know it, and she was no longer the careless color of sea foam, but rather the color of snow falling on a moonlit night. But her eyes were still clear and unwearied, and she still moved like a shadow on the sea.”—the first lines of The Last Unicorn (via smut-to-go) (via helloidrinktea) (via counterfeitredhead)
charlsie looks at me after recieving a text froma boy:whats something completely ridiculous to ask for?

“Of all the legendary animals of art, folklore and literature, the Unicorn is the one with the greatest hold on our imaginations. Other fabulous beasts are clearly inventions, existing only in a mythical landscape of our own collective creation. But the Unicorn strikes us as more than imaginary. It seems possible, even probable…a creature so likely that it ought to exist.”—Nancy Hathaway —
“'Do you know, I always thought unicorns were fabulous monsters, too? I never saw one alive before!' 'Well, now that we have seen each other,' said the unicorn, 'if you'll believe in me, I'll believe in you.'”—Lewis Carroll; Through the Looking Glass
