When the world hates you who do you turn to? When all they can do is stare at you in the street because you’re different what do you do? Do you give up? Do your roll over and stop fighting? Do you tell them you won’t give them any trouble because that way you might just survive? No, you don’t! You keep going!
Because when other people kick you out, turn you away; when they say that you couldn’t possibly keep up or pull your weight; don’t you ever think of just going back, pushing them aside and telling them yes, actually I can and I will?
So when you sit at home because you have no where else to go; when you insist on running from them because, in some way, it’s safer. When you let the tears lull you to sleep at night; just remember, believe. You can make a difference.
So when the people around you lie; when they say yes, I’ll do that; what they mean is if you’re not going to remember I'm as sure as hell won’t. If it takes any effort or forces them to make any sacrifice they won’t do it. You’ve got to know that the people who do that are cowards so if you just stand up to them and show them whose boss, you’ll get what you want.
So pick yourself up; carry on fighting. Because if not today, if not in a month, if not in a year; you will make a difference; your efforts will be noticed and something will happen. The world will change because of you.

I am the girl ... that doesn't go to school dances, and when I do go, I sit in a corner and read a book. I am the girl that people look through when I say something. I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird, and a freak either behind my back or to my face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on My Space, or talking to a girlfriend on a cellphone or a regular phone. I am the girl that hasn't been asked out in a year. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain.
But I am also the girl who knows and is proud to be who she is, doesn't care if people call her weird, who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do any more, who loves and is obsessed with Harry Potter, who can express herself better with words, and knows the importance of the little things.
Copy and Paste this onto your account, and add your name to the list, if you are anything like me, so the girls who are different and unique can know in their weakest times that they are unique, but not alone.

Quotes, lyrics, nice words etc:
To write is to live forever
'Cause every time you fight, your scars are gonna heal, but they're never gonna go away - No love, Simple Plan
But when something happens, you might find out anyway, and then you can begin being who you are, instead of the person the others think you are
Every night and every morn, some to misery are born
Every morn and every night, some are born to sweet delight
Some are born to sweet delight, some are born to endless night
I'd rather be alone than pretend to be something I'm not - again
Humans are longing for accept, as plants for light;
We stretch ourself as long as possible, if we have to
Loners aren't people who choose to be alone
They're people who are waiting for someone to understand them
It don't take a lot to break a human
Strangers see you before you do
We could learn a lot from crayons. Some have weird names, some are dull, some are new, some are pretty, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box
Little kids who knows that they're gonna die, isn't afraid of death, because they can't imagine death
Little kids who knows that they're gonna die are afraid of being left alone - Kill, Mats Wahl
It's better to choose your own doubt, than others faith - Souljourney, Daniel Zimakoff
I am not afraid of the darkness, neither the shadows, I am afraid of what might hide in them
Not putting up with you because I don't agree, wouldn't that be like punishing you for not turning out like me? - The Same, Only Different by Joanie Twersky in Teen Ink: Written in the Dirt
You must be the change that you wish to see in the world - Gandhi
Many of the truths the cling to, depends greatly on our point of view - Obi van Kenobi
I want to breathe every day - Robert Frost
The sorting hat says that I belong in Ravenclaw!
Said Ravenclaw, "We'll teach those whose intelligence is surest."
Ravenclaw students tend to be clever, witty, intelligent, and knowledgeable.
Albus Dumbledore: INFJ
INFJ's are ethical, empathetic, and decisive. They have a keen sense of right and wrong and of their duty to uphold justice. INFJ's are very perceptive, especially regarding other people. (I don't agree with Albus being the character assigned, but oh well.)
We defended the Stone. We found the Chamber. We freed the Prisoner. We were chosen by the Goblet. We fought alongside the Order. We learned from the Prince. We mastered the Hallows.

Lord of the Rings:
The Hunger Games:
I like all canon Tamora Pierce pairings, all of the canon pairings in The Gemma Doyle Trilogy, and all of the canon pairings in the Old Kingdom series.
Favorite Harry Potter Fanfiction Quotes:
Harry smiled. Now Umbridge would learn the truth all students knew-screwing with Snape was like baiting a Hungarian Horntail-either way you ended up dead. Broken Wings by Snapegirlkmf That's my Sev! :D
He knew Snape would dismember anyone who dared touch Harry now. Snape protection. It was a good thing. What is Right: Year One by Emma Lipardi Just more Sev love. :)
A touch of humour played about her mouth as Lily pondered the black clad wizard standing glaring at her. With the tell tale peeking white collar and cuffs - this was after all Severus Snape - brilliant, proud, and powerful; predictably unpredictable; guarded, armoured, and as dangerous as a Horntail; heart soft as a peach, and easily bruised. Severus and Lily a Revelation by ratinthewood Very, very true. That's my Sev.
Poppy contained her smile at the dramatics of the man in front of her and his name for her. Underneath all that gruff and social awkwardness, Severus Snape was a kind and sensitive man. Though of course, she would never say such a thing. She was sure that the man would be scandalized to hear such a thing. Not what they wanted, just Harry NEW! by cersedshadow Oh, Sev! :)
"Miss Granger, be quiet!" Snape snapped, causing her to flinch. "I am the one berating him for his stupidity." He paused and his lips once again twitched suspiciously. "However, you have my full permission to do so later at your earliest convenience."
Harry looked from one to the other, feeling utterly indignant. They were tag-teaming him! And that was the last thing the universe needed – to feel the combined forces of Snape and Granger. Sinking Feeling by wellyuthink he he he. XD Poor Harry, getting teamed up on for his own good. :D
That was what was nice about Hermione. She had no expectations for him except the ones she knew he had it in him to achieve; no dreams for him except those that were part of who he was.
Those usually ended up including her, anyway. Ourselves Behind Ourselves, Concealed by vanillaparchment Aww!! Harry, you're so sweet. :)
"Now you two listen to me," she said determinedly, and somehow seemed to be much older than she actually was. "And listen closely, 'cause I'm not quoting from a book here. If the two of you are just friends; if you look at your relationship as something casual; if you even so much as dare to take it for granted; if you don't treasure each other more than anything else in the world; if you don't need each other; if you don't depend on each other; if you don't trust in each other; if you don't find completion and comfort in each other; if you don't see what you truly ought to be; if you don't want to spend the rest of your lives at each other's side; if you can imagine something else, someone better, someplace nicer; if you are blind and deaf and stupid; if you, of all people, are just friends, then there truly is no more to be had than friendship in this world. If Harry Potter and Hermione Granger are not in love, are not a manifestation of love itself, then there is no hope for all the rest of us who dream of it and yearn for it. The two of you are what we believe in, what we look up to. And if you are telling us that it's all just one big delusion, well… then to hell with you!" Eyes Wide Open by Stanrick You go girl! An OC tells Harry and Hermione the truth. I mean, I've thought this to myself so many times...
"Honestly, sir," replied Harry sheepishly. "I was."
"But - " prompted Dumbledore, obviously sensing Harry had more to add.
"But Hermione managed to talk some sense into me."
"Ah yes," chortled Dumbledore, his gaze coming to rest fondly on Hermione. "Behind every good man is always a great woman."
"The greatest," agreed Harry wholeheartedly, lifting Hermione's hand to his lips causing Hermione to blush furiously. The Needs of the One by Witherwings01 I may not like Dumbledore, but this is to0 good! :D
"Harry?" The quiet voice roused him from his daze. He didn't need turn his head to know who it was. He had everything about her tuned in. Her voice, the sound of her footsteps, her scent and every facial expression was locked into his mind. Over the years, either subconsciously or on purpose he had remembered everything about her to the finest detail. Your Love Means Everything by cross-stitch Just more Harmony love. It just makes me go "aww!"
Hedwig had a lot of time to think, and her Harry gave her a lot to think about. If Hedwig had the power to do so, Vernon Dursley would be dead. Being a post owl, she did not. However, as card carrying member of the Avian Transport Union, she was doing her part to convince the pigeons to target Vernon's prized car, now that her Harry didn't have to clean it. Ritually Yours by Stephen Ratliff LOL, this is just too FUNNY! Go Hedwig! :D
