"Harry picked it up and stared at it, his heart twanging like a giant elastic band. No one, ever, in his whole life, had written to him."
Things that unite Europe
I can’t believe drawing a black line across my eyelids makes me feel 10x prettier.
you all deserve someone who isn’t embarrassed to love you and tells all their friends about you and saves your selfies, whether they’re good or bad to look at when they miss you and loses sleep to talk to you and tells you how much they love you all the time and i really hope all of you find that one day because you all deserved to be loved
We are gathered here today because SOMEBODY *glares at coffin* couldn’t stay alive.
Just a few of the pics we got at the Powel’s signing. So thankful I got to take my son. Bray is obsessed with TLOS- we read it every night before bed.
When we got in the car this morning to make the trip up to Beaverton he had no idea what we were going to do. He figured it out once we got to the store and he saw all the copies of the new book. He just looked at me and asked if Chris Colfer would be there. He was so excited about the chance to meet him. When I asked him if there was anything that he would like to ask Chris his first answer was to ask Chris to marry him. Then he decided he wanted to ask him to do the Love is a Battlefield dance with him.
As we waited and more and more people showed up he got even more excited. We found a nice little spot where he could see the signing table. Once Chris walked in Bray went a bit crazy- waving and a little screaming. Chris was waving back at him and said hi to him.
When it was our turn to get our books signed Bray walked up to the table and said “Hi Chris Colfer” Chris said hi back and that he liked Bray’s outfit. Bray got to tell him that he loves reading TLOS at night before bed and that Conner is his favorite character. He also told him that Battlefield is his favorite song ever. They chatted for a few more minutes and that was that.
I know it’s been said over and over- But Chris was so amazing with Bray. He let Bray talk his ear off for a few minutes and was so attentive to him.
As we walked away from the table Bray asked if he could go to Chris’ house now that they are friends.
Bray wanted to hang around and watch other people get their books signed so we did. Once the signing was over and Chris was leaving- Bray got to wave goodbye to him and Chris waved back and asked for him to come see him again. Then Alla asked if they could take Bray with them. Which I said yes to obviously. It’s really a shame that I would have to go with- you know Bray being under 18 and all…
It was such a fantastic day. Everyone at the store was so so kind. Shoutout to the Powel’s photographer. She pulled me aside and asked for my email so she could send me the pictures she got of them talking. Then she asked Bray if he would pose with his book to get a few pics for their social media. Then she caught up with us in the parking lot and wanted to tell us that Chris and Alla couldn’t stop talking about him and how they wanted her to tell us that he made their day.
Bray was so stinking happy with the whole day- made everything worth it. I am over the moon. There is nothing like the look of pure joy on your kid’s face.
And then he passed out.
