Many members of the House of Black are named after stars or constellations. For example, the star Sirius is in the constellation Canis Major, the dog. Bellatrix is a name shared by the third brightest star in the constellation Orion, which is also the name of Sirius’ father and Bellatrix’s uncle. Narcissa Malfoy née Black named her son Draco, a constellation depicting the form of a dragon. Cygnus, Andromeda, and Cassiopeia are also constellations, while Regulus, Alphard, and Arcturus are stars.

Yes, still insane.  This took the length of time to watch LotR the Fellowship of the Ring (extended edition), one Special features disc, Crazy stupid Love, and some more special features, with breaks … because you don’t ink with real ink and don’t take breaks because that is how you end up with smeared ink.

We assume others show love the same way we do — and if they don’t, we worry it’s not there.

Everyone has their own love language. That’s one of the most important lessons I’ve ever learned.

Me and saving-pages were talking about our cats and these are all of my rescue cats! Arya, Trey, Forest, Shadow-Bean, Melly, Kitten and Betti. (There’s some information about all of them on the individuals photos captions but anything else you wanna know about my wonderful kitties just message me!)

If you’re ever looking at getting a pet always look for a rescue first. I can assure you that a lot of rescue pets are so grateful and just as amazing. A majority of my pets from chickens to horses are rescues and they are all wonderful animals!

I love them all.

If someone reads fewer books than you do, it does not make them less intelligent than you. It does not even make them a worse reader. If someone reads different types of books than you do, it doesn’t make them a bad reader, either. It just means they are a different human being than you.
