“To 1st Lt. F. Scott Fitzgerald
“While stationed at Camp Sheridan, near Montgomery, Alabama, Fitzgerald met his future wife, Zelda Sayre, the daughter of an Alabama Supreme Court judge.” (via University of South Carolina)
World War I ended before Fitzgerald deployed. Had it gone on, there might have been no Gatsby.
It’s worth remembering that wars do not cost only lives, but also all the things those lives would make.
Whenever I hear someone in the Bush administration refuse to acknowledge that the Iraq War was a mistake (an honest mistake, I trust, but still a tragic one), I think of the would-be Fitzgeralds—American and Iraqi—whose flasks we will never see on tumblr, because we will never have the good and beautiful things they would’ve brought into the world.

meredith, how do i open a new tab
I was the first of the Potter actors to learn to drive. I passed my test at the second time of trying. On the set, there’d always be a lot of talk about cars among the cast, although Daniel Radcliffe never joined in. He’s never been into cars at all. My first ambition was to become an ice-cream man, which is why I bought the Bedford van. Not long after I first got it, I pulled into a pub to do a U-turn and there were eight kids with their pocket money out, hoping to buy a 99 or whatever. But I had nothing to give them. I’ve learnt my lesson since then. I keep my van well stocked. It’s got a proper machine that dispenses Mr Whippy ice cream and I buy my lollies wholesale – 50 for a tenner – so I never run short. I’m not allowed to sell my merchandise. I’d need a licence for that. I tend to avoid July and August, but the rest of the year I’ll drive around the local villages and if I see some kids looking like they’re in need of ice creams, I’ll pull over and dish them out for free. They’ll say, “Ain’t you Ron Weasley?” And I’ll say, “It’s strange, I get asked that a lot.” The van often comes in useful. I drove it up to the set on the last day of filming on Harry Potter. The cast and crew were having a barbecue and I supplied the lollies and ice creams.’
“It was just, the most amazing experience i think all of us have had. And every night you come back from kind of everything that we were doing and you just sit there and think about the people who are living there, they have to go to sleep feeling like that and then wake up and do it all over again. That whole thing, having to live like that, is crazy and shouldn’t happen anymore. So hopefully we can make a difference…. When you’re there and you’re in it (you get) the full scenery thing ,you know, you get the smells, you get eyes hurt from the smell, you’ve got the cough. You’re just there and you’re feeling it all. It’s a bit overwhelming and we had moments. I think that if you don’t cry, you’re a super human…You don’t expect to have connections with people and it’s crazy how quick you get connections with children who live there. You feel upset leaving them and saying goodbye to them, it’s crazy. ” -Harry (x/x/audio)
