You have replaced every piece of yourself. Mechanic or organic. Time and time again. There’s not a trace of the original you left.
Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters
they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay
“He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”
"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”
"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”
"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”
"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”
And, of course:
"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
the one that will always stay with me is “Arthur Dent was grappling with his consciousness the way one grapples with a lost bar of soap in the bath,” i feel like that was the first time i really understood what you could do with words.
So, did anyone else feel like crying a bit at the Season 8 premiere of Doctor Who? I don’t know, just everything, the Doctor trying to figure out who he is, the fact that Clara is recovering from her lost friend (or lover, whatever) and now is with this man who is supposed to be the man she loved, and all he wants is a friend but the one person who needs to understand him can’t. And then the whole thing about how we don’t know how dark this new Doctor is going to be, and who the hell is this other lover in “Paradise” and why in the world is she dancing. I just, I can’t. It’s too much and it’s so good and I can’t

That’s actually really fucking legit and I’m sure that somewhere within the over 18k notes that this has already someone has drawn up some drafts as to what their crests would look like and what students at an American Magic School would dress like.
The pure fact that this doesn’t even need a title or a description or anything speaks volumes. I mean look at the number of notes this has. There are so few people who don’t recognize it. And the song itself just gives you chills. It’s so magical.
^ THAT WAS MY EXACT REACTION

4: Is Trust a big issue for you:
"Some people love staying up late. Sometimes I do. But normally, I hate it.
Because when it is late and we are alone, we are forced to face the reality of our lives. And sometimes the mistakes I have made feel far to great, and I do not know how I can get up and face the day again.”
