Cassie: I want you to tell me!

Lawes: What?

Cassie: How to stop bad things happening.

Lawes: Doesn’t work, does it? That’s why you have to start eating again.

Cassie: … I fell in love.

Lawes: Ah, love. Why cut yourself when you can be in love?

Cassie: You think passing an exam will make me happy?

Lawes: Cassie, passing exams generally only makes life more complicated, but there’s lots of other stuff that makes things bearable, and you don’t even have to use a knife.

Cassie: … Like?

Lawes: Disco.

(Then they dance.)


I think about this scene pretty much every day of my life. I think it’s my favorite scene ever from a tv show or the one that’s resonated most deeply with me, anyway, because 1. it’s made me feel the most understood and 2. it’s brought me the most comfort. Also, I think it’s kind of the best summing up/illustration of (at least my interpretation of) Zen philosophy that I’ve ever seen in any form of media, and it kind of gets to the heart of the show in that through all of the horrible shit the characters go through, they always ultimately seem to find a way to enjoy life and each other and being in the moment (through being in the moment?)

You Scored as JJ

You feel awkward & out of place in social situations, & sometimes allow people to boss you around. However, you're extremely intelligent and are a truly sweet & genuine person.










It's official - Pandora/Effy is my new OTP.
The way Effy's face lights up whenever she looks at Panda.
Screw that bullshit about Pandora and Thomas randomly winding up together at fucking Harvard in a whole other country. Effy needs her Panda!
Photographic evidence (er picspam) to follow.

We’re all lonely and all we want is for someone to, you know, pay attention. And tell us we’re beautiful. And cute… And by the time we were on our way home, we were telling secrets and I wanted to move my hand. I wanted to move it so much. And then she moved hers. I wish I’d told Naomi how easy it is for me to love someone.

But I'm not posting it there because it wound up being not porny in the least. Yes, I fail.

Anyway it's a crossover (Cassie from "Skins"/Luna from Harry Potter).

Note: Luna looks like Evanna Lynch. She just does.
