omg this is a cool question, let me try to recall some of my favs:
- per adua ad astra, and all it’s variations (per aspera ad astra, sic itur ad astra, and so on). they’re all various ways of saying “through hardship, you will go the stars”. Idk, ever since I first learned the phrase, it’s always stuck with me as one of the most beautiful expressions.
- Veni, vidi, vici- I came, I saw, I conquered. It sounds imposing and powerful and like something i’d have tattoed on myself if i was a battle-scarred warrioress.
- semper ad meliora- always towards better things. I like it simply because a) it sounds nice to say (which is a common factor for all my favorite phrases, tbh) and b) it’s inspirational, as cheesy as that seems.
- Auribus Teneo Lupum- “I hold the wolf by the ears,” this one is actually an ancient proverb.
- bellum se ipsum alet- “war feeds itself”
- capax infiniti- “holding infinity”
- luctor et emergo- “I struggle and emerge”
- dum vivimus, vivamus- “while we live, let us live”
- toujurs pur- “always pure”, and just because it’s the family motto fo the noble and most ancient house of Black.
- "ita vero" is a phrase I always wish I could have courage to throw out in casual conversation, since it just means "thus indeed" and it’d be hella eloquent to use it while trying to sound smart.
- lux aeterna- “eternal light”
- nec aspera terrent- “they do not fear the difficulties”
Favorite asoiaf characters: Jaime Lannister
"He was Jaime Lannister, a knight of the Kingsguard, he was the Kingslayer. No man had ever called him craven. Other things they called him, yes; oathbreaker, liar, murderer. They said he was cruel, treacherous, reckless. But never craven."
how the hell do i talk to people

Just a few hours after star Ryan Reynolds opened up about the reaction to the Deadpool leaked footage, 20th Century Fox has announced they are moving forward with the film and given it a February 12, 2016 release date, just three months before the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Ryan Reynolds is expected to star with director Tim Miller at the helm and a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Yes! That mini film was so good!
P.S. didn’t he actually say “Soy piscina de la muerte”? Why did they translate it, that was the joke…
