"And then a train comes and nobody gets off. Not one single soul, because everyone’s home. I don’t know whether they’re happy there, or angry with the people they live with, or waiting for something good to happen, but they’re some place better than here. I want to go home. I go back to saying Woy Woy over and over in my head until I realise that it’s Mia’s name that I’m saying, and my dad’s and Luca’s and Will’s and Justine’s and Siobhan’s and Tara’s and Jimmy’s and Thomas’s and Ms Quinn’s and Brother Lewis’s and Mr Ortley’s and then I start all over again. Their names ringing through my head."
I don’t know if I would call this scene soul-crushing, but it is definitely heart wrenching, and probably my favourite scene in any of Melina’s books. I love it because Francesca just goes a little crazy in her own way, and I love it because she finally, properly, talks to her dad about her mum’s depression. There was so much that went unsaid between my dad and I when I was a teenager; when we finally did talk, there was a lot of pain and realisation. Anyway, I cry a lot in Melina’s books (and in life in general), but I’m always crying when I read this chapter. Some truly wonderful writing.

Himari from Mawaru Penguindrum :)
I finished the series yesterday but I wasn’t really paying attention after ep 12 so I’m kind of lost .-. all I know is that Himari is super cute and that I wanted to draw her!!
Every time I talk about race some white person says something like “you have to focus on the bigger issue”
at first I was like what is this secret bigger issue you all keep bringing up?
But then I realized it was just code for “talk about something that affects white people too”
