Sansa Stark quotes
Many fans are a bit put off by all this talk about money, but it has to be contextualized; this isn’t just about “Wow, look at all the money this movie made,” it’s about the fact that when Lionsgate is making decisions going forward about what kind of film they want to put out, or more specifically what kind of existing properties they’d like to mine, it cannot be ignored that by the year’s end it’s almost guaranteed that their three top-grossing films in studio history will be adaptations of young adult novels starring female protagonists. This comes at a time when many studios–including the box office juggernaut that is Marvel–hem and haw about putting a woman at the front of a major franchise…
The Hunger Games franchise may not only guide Lionsgate into what kind of films they want to make in the future, but also be informative for both Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. as they inch toward making a female-centric superhero film. Jennifer Lawrence is surely a singular talent and not everybody can build a franchise around her, but the success of the films–which seem likely to beat out at least Thor and Superman this year, and possibly Iron Man as well–should spark serious discussions about strong female leads that Twilight (in spite of its box office success) never could because of the problematic way Bella was depicted.
Whenever studio heads are grilled about this issue, the same handful of films come up as examples that women are more difficult to write than men in an action setting; the conversation starts and you can clock the seconds until Elektra, Catwoman, Salt and movies like that are name-dropped…
The problem here is the instinct to blame the lead for the failure of a film where the problem is clearly the script, direction, and generally everything involved with the production. Saying that Wonder Woman is a tough nut to crack may be true–Marvel has acknowledged that integrating the mythological aspects of Thor was one of their biggest challenges. Saying that Wonder Woman is a tough nut to crack because Catwoman was a disaster, though, is just silly."
I have an idea son, why don’t we drive to the nearest cliff and see if the law of gravity applies to you.

Raven’s dad was a hardcore sass-master.
The Ravenclaw common room is located high up within a tower and known for its panoramic views of the school grounds. It is a large circular room filled with bookcases and blue furnishings. It is also one of the only common rooms to feature a statue of their house founder. The entrance requires no password but the solving of a riddle asked by a bronze eagle knocker. Incorrect answers result in having to wait outside for someone else to answer their riddle successfully. Once inside you can sit under the impressive starry domed ceiling and listen to the relaxing sounds of the wind whistling around the exterior of the tower windows.
just, take this.
