One year ago today, I attended the GLAAD Awards in San Francisco, where I had the honor of witnessing Miss Dianna Agron host her first awards ceremony.
I remember getting all dressed up, making sure every detail was perfect. I remember how excited and nervous I was all the way there. I remember waiting in anticipation to catch my first glimpse of The Lady of the night. I remember seeing her for the first time, and I have never seen someone quite so beautiful. I remember the sheer overwhelming feelings of her walking three feet away from me. I remember sitting in the audience and thinking how proud I was of her standing up on that stage and all of the words that she said.
Being able to see Dianna in person and to hear her speak was probably one of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me. She has made such a difference in my life and has been a part of what shaped me into the person I am today.
Dianna speaks of love quite often, in all forms. Spreading love. Giving love. Being love. Letting love in. Some of her words of love are permanently written on my skin. These words remind me every day to live a life of love.
Not only does the most recent addition to my collection say just that, it’s also the most personal to me.
Because one year ago today, I got to hear these words spoken by her for myself.
I Can’t Make You Love Me by Bon Iver
Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t, I can’t make your heart feel something it won’t

I strongly disagree with anyone who says Maleficent isn’t the best Disney villain. No singing, no dancing, no long expositions about her plans, no tolerance for bumbling comedy sidekicks (she electrocutes a whole room full of minions when she finds out they’ve fucked up and spent the last few years searching for a baby), just outright malicious intent.
I mean let’s take a look at her motivations compared to other popular Disney villains:
SCAR - Wanted to become King.
URSULA - Wanted to rule the seas.
WICKED QUEEN - Wanted to rule as the most beautiful woman in the land.
JAFAR - Wanted to rule in the Sultan’s place and/or obtain ultimate power.
Maleficient, by contrast, didn’t want any of that. She didn’t want more power. She didn’t want fame. She didn’t want to rule. She just wanted to raise hell. This is the woman who decided that every newborn child in the kingdom should die and that the land should be covered in darkness for one reason - SHE WASN’T INVITED TO A MOTHERFUCKING PARTY.
That’s right, the evil bitch basically condemned an entire kingdom to die at her hands because she didn’t get invited to a christening.
This is not a woman with a motivation. She cannot be reasoned with. Her actions cannot be rationalized. She is evil for the fun of being evil, not because she wants something.
THAT, my friends, is the ultimate villain. One who knows they’re evil and LOVES it.

❝I think about your thighs,” she wrote in the second letter, “and the warm, moist smell of your skin in the morning, and the tiny eyelash in each corner of your eye that I always notice when you first roll over to look at me. I don’t know why you are better and more beautiful than anybody else. I don’t know why your body is something I can’t stop thinking about, why those little flaws and ridges on your back are lovely to me or why the pale soft bottoms of your New Jersey feet that always wore shoes are more poignant than any other feet, but they are. I thought I would have more time to chart your body, to map its poles, its contours and terrains, its inner regions, both temperate and torrid - a whole topography of skin and muscle and bone. I didn’t tell you, but I imagined a lifetime as your cartographer, years of exploration and discovery that would keep changing the look of my map. It would always need to be redrawn and reconfigured to keep up with you. I’m sure I’ve missed things, Bill, or forgotten them, because half the time I’ve been wandering around your body blind drunk with happiness. There are still places I haven’t seen.❞
For @DiannaAgron. :3
