"Your life is not an episode of Skins. Things will never look quite as good as they do in a faded, sun-drenched Polaroid; your days are not an editorial from Lula. Your life is not a Sofia Coppola movie, or a Chuck Palahniuk novel, or a Charles Bukowski poem. Grace Coddington isn’t your creative director. Bon Iver and Joy Division don’t play softly in the background at appropriate moments. Your hysterical teenage diary isn’t a work of art. Your room probably isn’t Selby material. Your life isn’t a Tumblr screencap. Every word that comes out of your mouth will not be beautiful and poignant, infinitely quotable. Your pain will not be pretty. Crying till you vomit is always shit. You cannot romanticize hurt. Or sadness. Or loneliness. You will have homework, and hangovers and bad hair days. The train being late won’t lead to any fateful encounters, it will make you late. Sometimes your work will suck. Sometimes you will suck. Far too often, everything will suck - and not in a Wes Anderson kind of way. And there is no divine consolation - only the knowledge that we will hopefully experience the full spectrum - and that sometimes, just sometimes, life will feel like a Coppola film."

okay okay but hear me out: wizarding tattoos

tattoos of cats that wind around your ankles, birds that fly across your back when you move, a wand that moves when you move your own wand, a map on the back of your hand that shows your current location

the possibilities are endless

but really though “i can’t be a kirk in this house, if you can show me I’ll stay” defines so much of his character. for jim being a kirk means fighting and fucking and abandoning up until the very end of your short life. his life has been showing sam how to stay, but sam isn’t here anymore.

I’m SO ANGRY this was taken out! This explain the goddamned changes between AOS Kirk and TOS Kirk!  TOS Kirk DID follow every rule, get good grades, and obey every order. It wasn’t until SO much later that he realized he didn’t have to. That sometime he could do better by not being who everyone told him to be. 

AOS Kirk is an angry kid who isn’t following the rules to spite. He’s trying to live up to what a Kirk is through his brother’s eyes. But he only ends up hating the name because he can never seem to be enough for it. 

TOS is James T. Kirk, passionate, but controlled, thoughtful and mature.

AOS is Jim Kirk, young, angry and living in the shadow of his own last name.

This one damned scene explains so much. This was an entirely different way of living. This isn’t just about his father dying. This is about when and how he realized he didn’t have to do the expected.

This is about WHY he became the reckless man we see in AOS. 

This one tiny scene shows us a motive for the wildness of AOS’ Jim Kirk. This takes it out of the realm of “he’s young and doesn’t understand why he has to play by the rules.” 

TOS Kirk ignores the rules because he knows they could be wrong, he knows it could make actions better.

AOS Kirk ignores the rules because he thinks he’s supposed to, he thinks it will make him better.
