I've read that ask you got before about Coraline, and just really wanted to tell you that ever since I read it (when I was 12 - 5 years ago) I don't think I became brave, but I think I understood I already was brave. You see, ever since, every time I get afraid (aka anxiety hits) I remember Coraline, and I remember that time when she said "when you're scared but you still do it anyway, that's brave." So thank you, Mr. Gaiman. That was one of the most wonderful gifts I've ever received.
I was in my thirties when I figured that one out, and wrote CORALINE mostly to tell it to my daughters. I’m glad that it’s spread across the world. I’m glad it made your life better.

The first big purchase I ever made after I started working as a performer was a car that was my pride and joy. It was a red Mazda MX-5 convertible. I loved that car and I was the cliché blonde in a red sports car for a while, but I sold her because I spend so much time away from home now. It was sad. She was just sitting on the road not being used. - Natalie Dormer (x)
Here’s a test:
I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.
I’m going to drop one. You chose which.
If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.
Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.
Because you’re aware there’s a difference.

"I will need hot water for my bath, please," she told them, "and perfume, and some powder to cover this bruise." The right side of her face was swollen and beginning to ache, but she knew Joffery would want her to be beautiful.
