"I have often said that Hermione is a bit like me when I was younger. I think I was seen by other people as a right little know-it-all, but I hope that it is clear that underneath Hermione’s swottiness there is a lot of insecurity and a great fear of failure".
J.K. Rowling

lara croft is so freaking metal, girl goes down a waterfall, falls down from a plane and glides through a forest in a mangly parachute, trips over a fallen branch, fights off some dudes while bleeding profusely and then cauterizes her wounds by herself

and then people complain she cries, shut up you cried last week when you stubbed your toe on the kitchen table
