so basically :

if I were David, i’d burst into tears for all the pressure i have upon my shoulders, and for the fact that nothing ever happens as i thought it would (and also for my own stupidity since i apparently still don’t understand that nothing ever happens as i thought it would)

if I were Sylas, i’d burst into tears for all the shit that happens to me on a daily basis, for the fact people keep being angry at me and hate me while i’m merely doing what i do to protect them, and for the fact that i’m supposed to decode every single signs god would have the sadistic pleasure to send me

if I were Jack, i’d burst into tears for my parents, no, my whole family, the whole goddamn kingdom, seems not to understand that i’m actually a good person and that i can do something else than hate people and celebrate all nights long. also i’d cry because the only person i loved and who really loved me beyong my freaking future crown and money actually died

if I were Michelle, i’d burst into tears for living in such a screwed up family and for not being free of my own steps

if I were Rose, i’d burst into tears for my children don’t love me though i love them with all that left of my heart

and if I were Thomasina, i’d just slap everybody in their stupid faces for general stupidity and self-mourning

  • King Silas:People ask how I cope with all the responsibilities - millions of souls relying on all the good air in my lungs. It's an easy secret. Every day I look for signs in my life and try to read into them God's intentions. Take a good look at YOUR life right now, captain, and think hard: what does God want YOU to do, today?
  • David Sheperd:To shut the hell up?
  • King Silas:So be it.
