one of my roommates used to work with 5th graders in a creative writing class thing and they had to write a romance and most of the kids wrote stories about princesses and crap but this one little girl wrote about how a marshmallow fell in love with a mug of cocoa and he loved the cocoa so much that in order to be with her he melted and died like wow kid that’s some shakespearian shit right there

This stunning installation of 888,246 red ceramic poppies was created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper in commemoration of the centennial of Britain’s involvement in World War I. Entitled Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, each flower represents a British or Colonial military fatality.

This staggering installation is a work in progress, with the ceramic pippies being planted by volunteers in the dry moat that surrounds the Tower of London. The planting process began a few weeks ago and will continue throughout the summer until a final flower is symbolically planted on November 11, 2014.

Visit the Historic Royal Palaces website to learn more about this moving project. You can also follow the progress of the volunteer planters by following the #TowerPoppies on Twitter.

World War One began one hundred years ago this year.

The world was never the same.

The poppy represents the fallen soldier in general and the soldiers of WWI in particular, after the poem, “In Flanders Fields.”

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses row on row

That mark our dead while in the sky

The larks still bravely singing fly

Scarce heard amidst the guns below


"I’ve heard that you’re also a fan of Tim Burton? It must have been an extra dream then that it’s Helena Bonham Carter’s first Harry film too?"
Evanna Lynch: I was so shy about that. Sometimes she’d be in make-up chair beside me and I was thinking of what to say to her, and then she’d get up and leave. I didn’t want to go: “Oh, I love your husband! Or partner or whatever.” The one of the runners told her and she said: “Oh, you’ll have to come for tea sometime!” I don’t know how I’d deal with that.
