BrOTP Solas/Eurydice

Ship Meme

collects rocks: Both of them, but they keep telling people they aren’t just rocks they’re ANCIENT ELVEN ARTIFACTS
takes pictures of the other while they’re asleep: Eurydice, she has to document all of the strange places he can manage to sleep.
gets drunk and breaks shit: Eurydice, Solas tries his best to calm her down and deescalate the situation
can’t swim: Probably Solas, or maybe he just falls asleep
remembers to feed the fish: Eurydice, Solas keeps forgetting. Spirits never need to be fed.
puts up Christmas decorations in November: Neither because neither particularly care.
sends inappropriate texts and SnapChats while the other is in a meeting: Not exactly inappropriate but they definitely send snarky texts and snapchats back and forth. Possibly in elven.
makes Sims just to drown them in the pool: Maybe Solas.
brings the other coffee at work: Solas
takes gym locker room selfies: Neither
signs them up for tennis lessons and a salsa-making class: Neither, though Solas might be more interested but much more inclined to find them a book on the subject.
forgets to charge the other’s iPad and leaves it dead on the coffee table: Solas.

unfortunately i'm in the same place as that last anon tonight, except i'm still trying to calm down and it isn't working at all. i just don't want to do this anymore. i can't handle it.

Listen if you come off anon I will give you my number and you can tell me what’s going on but you have to keep fighting. You can’t give up. I won’t let you. JUST KEEP SWIMMING

I’ve been hit by this wave before.

I recall its winter waters, the icy chill;
how the air was knocked out of my lungs
and the sea entered
and escaped my eyes.

The first time is always the hardest.

But since then, you build a tolerance, a taste for the cold 
and what it does to your nerve endings and membranes.

You lose feeling after your insides say “enough.”
And sometimes, you don’t regain that touch.
You learn to anticipate every shocking vicious blow that wills to submerge you.
You must stay calm.
Keep your body preoccupied with swimming, staying afloat.
And you don’t,
you just don’t
let yourself submerge into the dreary depths that lie underneath.
Because those depths will ask for your weakness
and assuage your surrender.

You keep moving,
in hopes that those shores
may be warmer than they were before
…wherever they are,
however long it takes to reach them.
