Today in science we learned that you can never gain cold, you can only have an absence of heat; and it made me think that maybe hatred doesn’t exist, and there’s only an absence of love.
this is the realist shit I’ve ever read
the endings are the best part.

“In the winter of 2011, photographer and furniture designer Ana Kraš flew from her home in Belgrade, Serbia, to Los Angeles, where she’d been sent by a European magazine to photograph artist-musician Devendra Banhart. Within five minutes, he asked her to marry him. Despite her initial impulse to flee, she stayed—and the two have been together ever since.”
#if you do not think #that this is what two people who deeply love each other looks like #then I honestly do not understand you #love is an enormously complex thing #and the fact that Hollywood claims that ‘true love’ can only be found in sexual relationships is absolute bollocks #platonic has come somehow to mean ‘lesser love’ in our society #when in fact what Plato was talking about was the epitome of selfless giving love #the thing the Greeks called agape #the love where you don’t have to ask yourself if the other person loves you #you are each other’s constant #and the only thing you are ever sure of is each other #you never doubt that the other person loves you #because to do so would be like denying gravity or the existence of stars or the second law of thermodynamics #even if it is not always obvious #if it is hidden #it is always always there #and this is the problem Moffat and co ran into with Amy and Rory #they were not each others constant #even though the writers tried so hard to make Amy and Rory the MOST EPIC LOVE STORY IN THE HISTORY OF TIME AND SPACE #they constantly placed pressure on the relationship and illustrated time and time again that this was not an unbreakable union #that Rory’s insecurity and Amy’s wanderlust were incompatible #that Amy had to settle down to please Rory because he had loved her so much and didn’t she owe that to him #that their marriage did almost end #whereas Amy and the Doctor #through all their struggles #all the missed moments and wrong turns #never ask the other to change for them #and intrinsically understand each other #deep calling out to deep #and when Amy cried in TATM #it wasn’t just because she was scared #she was staring into the abyss of agony that is losing one’s soul-mate #childhood sweetheart #best friend #she went with Rory yes because she loved him #but also because he was alone #and she knew the guilt would forever gnaw at her if she left him alone #and he would never forgive her #but the Doctor #he would understand #he always understood #and as in every great love story #he would prove his love by letting her go (via ameliapondthehistoryqueen)
