“We were like gods, at the dawning of the world, and our joy was so bright we could see nothing else but the other.”
— The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller

“It went straight to his heart every time she said, 'You're nice,' in that voice of hers, with those eyes. She wasn’t at all satisfied with the obsure futility of her life, but what could he possibly interest her in? Try talking to her? Unlocking her mind? He wasn’t, after all, going to drag her through museums, take her to concerts, lend her books, explain the world to her. He gently kissed her hair. He would have had to be in love with her. With women it always came down to that; you had to love them with an exclusive love.”
— Simone de Beauvoir, from The Mandarins (via hannamona)

The Erinyes | The Avengers

The vengeful three. Skin fair, almost translucent, their bones clear, and visible to those around. Broken and lost were the ones who came to them. They went against the natural order of things, these weak beings. Drive them to insanity, into madness, we will let them get sick, and fall apart. Let them break down, their crimes will pay.

Royal Affair: Kirsten Dunst and the cast of ‘Marie Antoinette’ (dir. Sofia Coppola) showcase the stunning powdered pastel costumes used in the movie as they lounge in a Parisian hotel for the famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the story was featured in the September issue of Vogue US, 2006 - picture via Vogue
The costumes of ‘Marie Antoinette’ made the movie what it was; miles of tulle, silk and satin were used as well as 18th century lace to create an air of luxury, and the palette was based on a box of Ladurée macarons that Sofia handed to costume designer Milena Canonero which set the colour theme for the movie. Though, the costumes were not merely frivolous as the countless pieces worn were meant to reflect the style revolution as the characters evolved, making them a pivotal element of one of the most visually sweet movies ever produced.

mythology meme:  [1/8] myths, legends, and stories
↳ ‘koit ja hämarik’ (‘dawn and dusk’)

Considered one of the most beautiful Estonian myths of popular origin, ‘Koit ja Hämarik’ is a fabricated myth by F. R. Faehlmann, first published in 1840. It has since become a beloved folk tale in Estonia.
Dusk is the female spirit responsible for extinguishing the light of the Sun when the night comes, and Dawn is her male counterpart responsible for re-lighting the Sun in the morning. Although they only met once a day so Dusk could hand over the Sun to Dawn, the two fell deeply in love. The Grandfather saw this and offered to let them marry, but the couple declined the offer and asked to remain unwed, because that way their love would remain forever bright and new. The Grandfather blessed their decision and the two only meet for a longer time during the four weeks around summer solstice, when the flowers bloom at their most beautiful and the nightingales sing most sweetly.
