A lot of people ask me, ‘How did you have the courage to walk up to record labels when you were 12 or 13 and jump right into the music industry?’ It’s because I knew I could never feel the kind of rejection that I felt in middle school. Because in the music industry, if they’re gonna say no to you, at least they’re gonna be polite about it.

strictly-vauseman:

THE WAY ALEX LOOKS AT HER IN THE VERY LAST GIF IS SO IMPORTANT BECAUSE SHE’S BEEN TRYING TO MAKE PIPER FEEL COMFORTABLE ENOUGH TO TALK TO HER AND COMFORTABLE PERIOD, SINCE PIPER GOT TO PRISON. SHE EVEN GOT HERSELF PUNISHED BY RED FOR TRYING TO FEED PIPER EVEN THOUGH SHE HADN’T SEEN HER IN ALL THOSE YEARS BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT ALEX JUST WANTS TO TAKE CARE OF PIPER. AND FINALLY PIPER IS TALKING TO HER AND SMILING AT HER AND LAUGHING WITH HER AND ALEX CAN’T HELP BUT STARE AT THE ABSOLUTE LOVE OF HER LIFE EVEN IF JUST FOR A MOMENT BECAUSE SHE’S SO OVERWHELMED.
