My friends little sister wrote this for Taylor swift. Could use any signal boosts :)
This almost made cry at my work desk. What a sweet little sister.
I know you’re super busy and probably getting swamped since you joined this site (get ready for a wild ride) and I normally wouldn’t try to desperatly reach out to a celebrity, but why not? You’re here so I might as well try. My best friend Patrick passed away in May. It was very sudden and random and our hearts have all been broken and we’ve all been dealing with a lot. Patrick has a little sister. She’s 14. She’s a sweet, darling, and very talented girl who looks up to you so much. Patrick’s birthday would have been this Friday, so I reach out to you with that in mind. Katherine’s original request was for a song at the memorial service, but I truly know that any sort of reaction or outreach to her would mean so, so much. If you were to respond to this or send me anything I would forward that to all of Patrick’s friends and family. We sang Enchanted at his funeral because we felt it truly embodied how we all felt when we met him. Anyways, just thought I’d give this the old college try. One more time. For his 23rd birthday. He really loved your music. In case you want to learn more about this story, his close friends and family made this facebook for him.
This little scene broke my heart. The girl who believed in nargles, in wrackspurts and blibbering humdingers, has become the girl who believed no more.
i tHINK IM GOING TO START CRYING NW
See, the thing that nobody understands, is that Luna believed in things that had proof. She’s a Ravenclaw, a genius, an expert in the unseen but proven. I mean, if she’d started talking about Thestrals before Harry had been able to see them, saying that there was an invisible winged horse pulling the carriages that only people that had witnessed death could see? You’d have thought THAT was crazy, too.
Luna knows Nargles and Wrackspurts are out there. As far as she knows, there’s proof of it.
But seashells hanging in a door? Those don’t do anything, nothing but give you a false sense of security.
It’s not that Luna doesn’t believe. It’s that now, as always, she’s frank and straightforward. Seashells can’t keep the evil at bay. Nothing can.
Thank you. She is not a naive little kid who believes everything you tell her. She just knows some things we don’t. Because she looks harder.
