"What has Hector ever done to me?" - Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles
tv shows are just so personal especially for someone who gets so easily emotionally attached to fictional characters bc it’s like, tv shows are constant and they’re easy and they’re stable. they’re there when your heart is broken and you’re in your pajamas and eating frosting from the jar and when you lie to your friends about being sick so you can stay in and watch it and when you have to DVR it bc your best friend needs you and it’s there when you and your friends want to watch a show abt people who love each other just as much as you guys love each other and on those nights when you don’t think there’s anyone to talk to but there’s someone there to make you laugh and it’s like. himym isn’t just a tv show to me tv shows are rarely just tv shows to me ya know it’s an intricate part of my life /they’re/ an intricate part of my life they’ve been there through so much of my life i know them and love them So Much and they’ve made me so happy and remind me constantly to enjoy my life and make memories and take care of my friends but once in a while when i can’t do those things they’re there to be all “it’s alright. breathe. laugh. tuesday will be better” and i miss that already ya know
Do you think directors get sad when they realize they will never make a more perfect action sequence than the castle siege set to “I Need A Hero” from Shrek 2?
Hector’s eyes are wide, but he will run no longer. He says, “Grant me this. Give my body to my family, when you have killed me.” Achilles makes a sound like choking. "There are no bargains between lions and men. I will kill you and eat you raw".
