charles’s shirts hanging over camilla’s delicate hands so she has to roll the sleeves up (◡‿◡)
camilla’s cardigans fitting just right around charles’s delicate hips (◕‿◕)
charles and camilla not being able to tell which shirt belongs to who when they’re spread on the floor after a night of ripping clothes off of one another (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧

"Sure, a few [athletes] stand out and are very smart (Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks could mention tiny muscles as if he was reading off an anatomy chart), but they are the exception."
"It wasn’t the titles, though, that won Toews respect across campus so much as his decision to stay on at Shattuck for his senior year, when the Tri-City Americans, the team that had selected him first overall in the Western Hockey League draft of 2003, were ready to roll out the red carpet. NHL scouts wondered about the decision, believing that he was staying on to play a level of hockey well below the competition he would have faced in the WHL. Toews rejects out of hand the idea that staying in Faribault was an easy way out. ‘I think of the bus trips we’d take and having to do homework all night on the ride, with staff watching us,’ he says. ‘We would be on the bus for six hours or eight hours, sometimes from lunchtime Friday through the night, and we’d have to get off the bus and play four or five games in a couple of days. Then we’d have to get back on the bus, get to our rooms at 3 a.m. and be down for breakfast and in class—no exceptions.’"

"Ron’s anxieties and senses of inadequacy… are the inspiration for some of Rowling’s best writing across the series. Not all of these fears stem from being the rather more ordinary best friend to someone who is Chosen. Ron is ashamed of his family’s financial limitations, which leave him with broken wands, hand-me-down pets, and ragged dress robes, all of which stand up poorly to Harry’s magical tools, his beloved Hedwig, and his sleek party outfit. The moment in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire when Ron discovers that the gold he used to pay Harry back for the Omniculars Harry purchased for him as a treat at the Quidditch World Cup vanished, and that Harry didn’t notice because he has so much money, is one of the sharpest depictions of the awkwardness of financial inequality in a friendship that I can remember. Their gap in Quidditch skills is another area of friction. And the scene in Deathly Hallows in which Ron, having made tremendous efforts to return to the friends he abandoned, confronts his terror that Harry is more desirable than Ron in every area, whether as a son to Mrs. Weasley or a potential lover to Hermione, is a beautiful illustration of how difficult it is to love someone who constantly eclipses you."
