flowers from my garden!! I am unbelievably proud of myself.
Why should such gloomy silence reign,
And why is all the house so drear,
When neither danger, sickness, pain,
Nor death, nor want, have entered here?
We are as many as we were
That other night, when all were gay
And full of hope, and free from care;
Yet is there something gone away.
The moon without, as pure and calm,
Is shining as that night she shone;
But now, to us, she brings no balm,
For something from our hearts is gone.
Something whose absence leaves a void–
A cheerless want in every heart;
Each feels the bliss of all destroyed,
And mourns the change–but each apart.
The fire is burning in the grate
As redly as it used to burn;
But still the hearth is desolate,
Till mirth, and love, and PEACE return.
‘Twas PEACE that flowed from heart to heart,
With looks and smiles that spoke of heaven,
And gave us language to impart
The blissful thoughts itself had given.
Domestic peace! best joy of earth,
When shall we all thy value learn?
White angel, to our sorrowing hearth,
Return–oh, graciously return!
Domestic Peace by Anne Brontë (via thebrontes)
So good I’m putting it here and on Eyresses.

I’m really enjoying your Caprica posts - I watched BSG and loved it, and I was hesitant about watching Caprica but am now reconsidering it…
Oh you must! It is a million times more dimensional and says so much about capitalism and money and race and religion and gender and feelings. AND ROBOTS AND TERROR.
Clarice brainwashes Lacy and sends her to terrorist training camp at the monotheist religious camp on Gemenon. But the Soldiers of the One have also been stealing military robots and it turns out Zoe made all the robots obey Lacy. Boom. Two teenage feminists basically change the entire worlds.
Did she really get deported? LOL
thats not funny to joke about at all.
shes the survivor of the child sex trade (she was sold into it by her own uncle and was abandoned by her mother) and multiple horrific sexual assualts of all sorts after she managed to free herself from it too. she is a fucking survivor. a champion!
that people are laughing at her being deported to go suffer in a country she doesnt even know
and misogynist as fuck
as well as fuckin antimmigrant
so she didnt give a fuck how she talked and fucked rappers
this doesnt make her deserving of suffering and displacement
and it doesnt make any of yall noble for making 9586895695789675896 comments all over the net trashing her like shes not fit to live, and laughing at videos of men beating on her
for simply not following your models of respectability?
FUCK SHE GOT DEPORTED???? this makes me feel sick.
fuck each and every one of y’all judgmental asshole. is all i can even say right now.
Not quite deported—she’s still in an I.C.E. “dormitory,” speaks a lot of truth on Twitter at @AdmireAndrea. She’s 100% awesome.
