my love for josh is all encompassing and bright and light
my love for tyler is different
i love the way he speaks and when he can’t
i love the little crinkles he gets when he rubs his face
i love the way he moves and his hands and the ways he twitches
i love how you know he’s being his authentic self 100% of the time
i love the darkness in his eyes
i love how that darkness vanishes when he looks at jenna or josh
Do you know if you're gonna be working yet, or...?
Uhh, actually, yeah, there's going to be a post-wedding brunch that morning.
Those are kinda specific questions to ask for "no reason."
I was just curious. I gotta go check on my tables. [She starts walking away]
Bryanna! Please remember I'm sensitive and I cry really easily!
I think these people thought I was joking when I told them if I quit, most of you guys are coming with me.
ALL of us would go with you. I'd make everyone else leave, too. I don't even care. I love you so much.
I love you, too. Thank you so much for everything. You and your sisters are the only people here who've been able to make me laugh in weeks, dude. WEEKS. You have no idea how much that's meant to me.
I saw Magnus carrying around Taako and Merle. Both were asleep and he kept shushing anyone making noise. I'm.... not entirely sure why they were asleep or why he was carrying them? He only said "because it's Sunday."
2p Prussia and 2p Austria? I'm not entirely sure why I ship them but I just do and I love it so much. It may be cause Roland would be like "What if we just kidnapped someone right now? "And Klaus is like "Why do I put up with you sometimes? "
Pffft i make 2p!Austria “Let me lick you” and make 2p!Prussia “oh look a butterfly, like my last fuck, it flies away”

I'm not entirely sure why people even use the "but what about the commoners!" argument, I mean if you played through Act 3 you would know that the Chantry and the Templar order were 100% okay with terrorizing non-mage citizens and you can even witness a bunch of armed templars about to murder a Lowtown woman for giving a shelter to a runaway Circle mage. It's pretty clear that even common non-mage people were never the priority, the priority was always maintaining their power through fear.
It’s a really bizarre argument, isn’t it? I actually find Cullen’s letter on the matter interesting, because in the first paragraph he’s effectively scolding Meredith about letting matters get to this state. He’s pretty clearly not suggesting that turning the Templars’ swords on the general populace is a particularly radical idea – he doesn’t have to sell the point. He just points out that his previous boss never let the commoners get in the way of imprisoning mages, and in order to fix this state of affairs they should bring out Templar Intimidation Strategy #14.
And yes, by Act 2 Anders reports that they’re treating harbouring apostates as a capital offence – and I know he talks elsewhere about Templars threatening mages’ families. By Act 3, many Templars are treating mage sympathisers the same way they would apostates. By Inquisition, Templars are murdering and terrorising suspected sympathisers in the Hinterlands on the flimsiest of excuses: ‘You talked to someone who looked vaguely mage-y to us! Now you must die!’
This is about cutting off any potential support for runaway mages, and preventing any effective resistance from forming. It’s an outright protection racket, in which the Templars promise not to murder you and burn down your house, as long as you hand over your mage children and never try to get them back.
And somehow, once someone is a mage, they are automatically a combatant and attempting to escape or rebel – thus potentially bringing down the wrath of the Templars on those who still get to be designated ‘commoners’ – is wrong, and the damage subsequently inflicted by the Templars is all their fault.
The Templar Order talks like the villain in every damn serial killer film I’ve ever seen. ‘You didn’t behave exactly as I told you to, so now it’s your fault I’m going to hurt your mother’.
