funny that u people hate when people call the "oppression of mages and elves" fictional but it's fine whenever the tables are turned and someone's defending the chantry lmao

oh look who’s back and only selectively quoting whichever bits of responses suit their absurd point while ignoring the rest

Now the reason why I do not feel at the present moment so far from
you is that I remember your Ways and Manners and actions. I know your manner of thinking, your manner of feeling. I know what shape your joy or your sorrow would take; I know the manner of your walking, standing, sauntering, sitting down, laughing, punning, and every action so truly that you seem near to me.
—  John Keats, from a letter
Why is it? Why are we all so tongue-tied and spellbound? Why do we perhaps live three streets off and yet never meet? Where is the intimacy? Where is the warmth? I think human beings are fundamentally crashed by a sense of their insignificance. I am perpetually overwhelmed by realizations of this kind. And nothing matters - nothing I say, feel, or think, truly makes a difference.
—  Virginia Woolf, Selected Letters
