This is a perfect “Always” song. From Beckett’s perspective…
Parachute - Under Control
So I pull away, and all I do is sit and wait.
And I might as well write the words right on my face
That all… I want… is YOU.
Because I’ve kept my heart under control.
But lately all this time is taking its toll.
I tried to, but I can’t hold back what’s deep in my soul.
Oh, so darling please forgive me.
I want you and you’ll just have to know.
OH MY GOD I CAN'T BREATHE SOMEONE HELP ME WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THIS REAL!?!?!??
I am freaking out right now, I went to check my followers and look..
AICOSU IS FOLLOWING ME OH MY GOD I CAN’T BREATHE AND AM FANGIRLING ALL OVER I AM HONORED THAT YOU ARE FOLLOWING ME! I AM NOT WORTHY AHHHHHHHH I’M LITERALLY SHAKING RIGHT NOW HELP
“A word in defense of making an ass of yourself; it's underrated. Eight years ago, I made an ass of myself chasing after you and... I've made an ass of myself chasing after you since then. But I have no regrets. Because it led me to something I wouldn't trade for the world. It led to you becoming my friend.”—Ted. From HIMYM.
Lyta, Marcus, Londo
Lyta: Do you sometimes feel like everyone’s just using you?
Hmm no, I don’t have that many people in my life that I’d go to great extents to help, so I wouldn’t get the feeling that someone is using me. And tbh, I mostly think people close to me don’t expect much or would demand something of me either way, lol.
Marcus: Ever loved someone who didn’t love you back?
Ahhh, I wouldn’t say love, but there was this girl from school whom I was super close to for years. We did lots of stuff together outside of our mutual group of friends like a sleepover, discussing STar TReK!, going to movies, eating out, etc, and we had a really strange ”not friendship but not romance” relationship, and then suddenly she became super religious and moved away?
But then she started ignoring our mutual friends and yet we still talk occasionally and idk, basically it’s just fucking weird. I don’t feel the way I do for her now like before, but I still really liked her a heck of a lot back then. I don’t know if she ever felt the same, but it sucks that I would probably never know where things could have gone, you know? Because she’s the only person irl I ever felt anything real for. :/
Londo: What’s the biggest mistake you ever made?
Gosh, I have no answer for this, I’m sorry. Maybe going back to the above - I wish I had bucked up and spoke of how I felt for her before everything fell apart, so I would at least know? I can’t really think of anything major I did that I would consider a mistake, cos mostly my life has been decent, I have nothing to complain about tbh.
Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry
You don’t know how lovely you are
I had to find you, tell you I need you
Tell you I set you apart
Tell me your secrets, and ask me your questions
Oh let’s go back to the start
Running in circles, coming up tails
Heads on a science apart
Nobody said it was easy
It’s such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh, take me back to the start.
O Hero Drabble (Requested by elladanofimladris)
Elrond’s world felt like it was crashing down around him.
The news of his son’s death his him like a knife. To lose another loved one, it was too much.
He sat in the middle of his study, which now looked like a tornado had blown through it. Elrond had knocked book cases down, thrown papers across the room, and ripped paintings down from the wall.
Now silence rang in the room, except for the few birds chirping outside his window, unaware of what had happened.
“You can’t take my son away from me too!” Elrond yelled in frustratuion, then burying his face in his hands.
He was sobbing now. Full-on sobbing. He didn’t understand why life had to be so cruel to him. He guessed that was the consequence though for choosing an immprtal life. You watched the ones you love most die, and yet you lived on.
He tried to get up from the ground, but his knees were too week and he fell back down. No guards made any attempt to come into the room and help him, for he ordered them to leave him be, no matter what.
“Why. Why. Why.” he murmered over and over again, laying on the cold floor, tears flowing down his face.
It felt like the room was closing in on him, constricting his air supply and leaving him hurting. He couldn’t find a way out, an escape from this.Because there is none.he told himself. His son was gone. There was no bringing him back.
Elrond felt as though he could die. And right now that’s all he wanted to do. But he knew he couldn’t. He had to live for his children and for Rivendell.
He didn’t know how much more of life he could take though.
