a song in his heart

anonymous asked:

I often wonder what he feels when he sings old love songs. Does it, just for a moment, bring up a certain memory. A person, a place, a mental image? Especially when it comes to SIAS, maybe because he was such a young thing, my heart just breaks thinking about him singing songs he wrote a girl he loved so much. Presuming on the next tour songs like DIWK, RUMine and Arabella will be on the setlist I wonder if he feels anything?

I often wonder that as well. I’m sure there are some nights when the show’s a blur, and he’s just going through the motions. Like that feeling of spacing out when you’re driving, and all of a sudden you’re at your destination like, “how did I get here?” And you genuinely don’t know. I bet a lot of gigs are like that after awhile. Then other times, I’m sure he’s hit with certain emotions or memories and it must take a lot of power to not focus on them when he’s on stage in front of thousands of people. He wrote some of his most beautiful lyrics when he was under the age of 25 when he was madly in love, and I can’t see how that doesn’t effect him still in some small way. It does break my heart. We didn’t even write them and it guts us. He has to feel something.

I always wondered too about how he felt singing the songs from Suck It and See that were clearly written for Alexa, and dedicating them to Arielle. Or how she felt for that matter. I think I’d be like, “please don’t; those are hers”. And I don’t mean that in a bad way, but it’s like, those are her songs whether they’re together or not. If Alex was better at being a bit more vague at that time, then maybe it wouldn’t matter so much, but it’s too obvious how very much in love he was.

I’m very anxious to see what songs make it to the newer shows, and how he performs them. At the end of the AM era, it didn’t seem like it bothered him to sing any of those songs after he’d split with Arielle, but I wonder if time has done anything to effect how he feels now? With someone new?

I hope every single one of you, pure people, get your ticket 😙 I am sad because, unfortunately, I have no chance to see him on tour because he is not coming here where I live. But knowing that some of you will see him and sing along to his songs and make him feel loved makes my heart so full ❤

I met a man of two feet tall
This man was quite ambitious
In a world that is so vicious to us all.

please no character hate or that God Damn Meme™, thank you

The violin scene at the end of The Final Problem is truly one of the most impactful moments (if not the most) in all of BBC Sherlock. I honestly am still speechless that Moftiss wrote something so profound. Eurus was beyond communication with the outside world after the events of this episode, back to the untouchable genius in her glass cage. But Sherlock. Sherlock, this incredible and kind man, who had lost so much to this woman, understood her and still reached out to help. He wasn’t encouraging her to play her own song, he was initiating a duet–so she wasn’t alone, even in her music. It was a conversation, it was understanding, it was connection. This man went beyond words, where others had failed and stopped trying, and showed her that she wasn’t alone. Sherlock has become- or perhaps he always was- one of the best men I’ve ever seen.

Zuko’s Redemption Arc:

“Growing up, we were taught that the Fire Nation was the greatest civilization in history, and somehow, the war was our way of sharing our greatness with the rest of the world. What an amazing lie that was. The people of the world are terrified by the Fire Nation. They don’t see our greatness. They hate us, and we deserve it. We’ve created an era of fear in the world.”

Can we just talk about how impressive this was and how well-written it was? I know I like to do a lot of critiquing meta, but I’m gonna do a positive one today. Zuko facing his father was a scene the entire series built up towards. Throughout the first two seasons, Zuko’s father is shrouded in mystery, and you only hear about him through the menacing memories Zuko holds, and the impersonal impression the world has of his tyrannical reign. But, in the third book, you are shown Fire Lord Ozai, and he isn’t this grotesque, horrific sight: he looks exactly like Zuko, but without a scar- older. That was a clever buildup and character design. 

But, this scene never ceases to amaze me, nor does Zuko’s character arc. Zuko has been abused so severely. He’s been beaten down from his upbeat, lively, natural self that we see when he is little. When he is thirteen, and goes to the war meeting, we see a little boy who, despite the trauma of losing his mother, and being abused by his dad, is still eager, optimistic, loving, social, and confident. After his banishment, he becomes repressed, pessimistic, cold, more aloof, and painfully insecure, masked with arrogance that is expected in his culture. 

Zuko has been locked in a palace with no interaction with any peers, or anyone his age, or anyone at all- except Azula’s little friends who were strung along into tormenting him, his mother, and from time-to-time: his uncle and adult cousin. He has been stripped of every ounce of confidence and optimism he had, yet his loving nature still shone through in the series. We could always tell that Zuko was repressing his sensitivity, and that he could not bring himself to cut off entirely his strong sense of empathy that got him into the situation of banishment in the first place. Ozai hated Zuko for his empathy, that was weak to the imperial Fire Nation. But, Zuko was bursting with it. He and Azula, have always possessed prowess in emotional intelligence, just in different aspects and choices of execution that parallel.  Ozai perferred what Azula did with it. Nothing was weaker than compassion, and Zuko held it innately in his personality. We see it when he speaks with characters even before his redemption. When he interacts with his uncle we see it the most, when he just knows what his uncle is thinking and feeling before he even says it, even when he saves his crew, when he spares Zhao, when he helps Song, when he helps Lee and his family, when he opens up his heart to Katara, when his true, repressed nature comes to light when he frees Appa, when he overcomes his social anxiety from his abuse and palace sheltering and comes out with kindness to Jin- all of it. 

And, Zuko finally speaks his mind to this man who cast him aside like he was nothing. This is the most difficult thing for an abuse victim to do. And, Zuko comes to a full realization through his abuse and struggles. He now realizes that he had been brainwashed by his culture- his father. His father hurt him, Zuko realizes he mustn’t blame himself. It’s his father, and it is his people who are hurting the world. This is a revelation wise beyond Zuko’s years, and not oft-noted enough the amount of intelligence, maturity, courage, and of course: honor this took. Zuko took out his father, not with a lightning bolt, but with swift eloquence and concise truths of humanity Zuko has, deep down, known all along. 

Zuko deserves more credit. He overcame so much. He won, in the end. He overcame all his hardships, and got love. He gained back his confidence, and blossomed socially, gaining friends, something Azula never could do, and he accepted himself, something Azula too, could never do, and he regained his sense of hope for the world and optimism, something Azula could never hold. These parallels were so fascinating, showing two sides of what abuse can do, and how you can choose your own fate with your own actions, in spite of your maltreatment. 

Zuko deserves more credit. 

which is why the comics infuriate me for regressing on this, and the other characters arcs HUH HEMM, but this is a positive meta

“A Wish for 100″

Pairing: Bucky Barnes x Reader

Summary: Midnight strikes, officially marking Bucky’s 100th birthday. You surprise the super-soldier with a small treat and a gift that has potential to change everything.

A/N: ending the last few hours of the day by wishing a happy 100th to our sweet plum, bucky barnes! // i wrote this in 7 minutes (i timed myself, hurrah) so it’s an incoherent mess. i’ll probably delete this sometime next week xx

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

Bucky leans against the headboard of his bed, bringing the covers closer to his body before crossing his arms against his chest. He watches as the second hand of the clock make its way around, hypnotically ticking away.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

In a few minutes, he’ll be 100-years-old, and it baffles him that he’s been on this planet for a century. He’s outlived his parents, his contemporaries, and everything he considered to be home. His age isn’t something he’s too keen on, especially since he’s spent over half of those “one hundred years of life” as a brainwashed weapon for a terrorist organization.

Birthdays are still a weird concept, and he prefers to not make a big deal out of them. He’s requested his teammates to treat it like any other day, and he doesn’t want any special attention. Lucky for him, the Avengers members with a flare for surprises and events are on a mission, and hopefully the rest of the team will oblige to his request.

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

His breath hitches.

It’s midnight.

I’m so proud of Louis. He has such a stage presence. He used that big ass stage and filled it 100% of his performance. He made sure to acknowledge every single side of that stage and make sure every one of those thousands of people got a little bit of him. And HE DID THAT WHILE HITTING EVERY SINGLE NOTE HE SANG. WITH A SONG THAT HAD A TEMPO CHANGE! That song was faster, and he still jumped around, slid around, and sang his heart out all over that stage.

I honestly couldn’t be more proud of him if I tried. He is the most talented and best boy, and he deserves the absolute WORLD!

Is it you who changed or is it me?
I hate this moment, this time flowing
but we are changed you know
just like everyone you know
yes I hate you 
you left me
but I never stopped thinking about you
not even a day
honestly I miss you
but I’ll erase you
because it hurts less than to blame you
—  Suga’s rap in 봄날 (Spring Day) 

Jason Todd died in 1988.

Jason Todd never saw The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, etc.

That makes me sad, because out of everyone who would have crammed into a threater and sit among the crunch of popcorn just to witness for a moment that dreams come true, it would have been Jason. He would have loved it.

Drarry:

Harry felt Malfoy’s breath on his lips as they came together over the bottle, hands firmly planted on the floor as though they each needed their familiar soil, refusing to cross into enemy territory.

Except that Malfoy no longer felt like his enemy.

Malfoy felt inevitable.

It’s Harry and Draco’s eighth year, the Houses have been all but demolished in favor of unity, and they’re being forced to room together. How ever will they cope?

No strings…easy. Right? Unless you’re Draco Malfoy and you’re having sex with Harry Potter.

Harry returns to Hogwarts for his 8th year, determined not to let Malfoy get to him. But when the snarky teasing starts up again, Harry finds that returning the jibes with compliments has a far more interesting outcome.

Larry:

The year is groovy 1973, and eighteen-year-old Louis Tomlinson is perhaps the gayest teen to ever grace the gloomy, hateful town of Fortwright. Would be fine if he wasn’t so viciously bullied at both home and school for such a “harmful” sexual preference.

After discovering the mansion was less abandoned than he’d thought, he’s now left with the most riveting mystery of a lifetime; every new finding leaving him with more questions. Who is this elusive owner, and why won’t they show themselves? Why is there a set of journals in the same handwriting that span over centuries? Why in the world is there a padlock on the refrigerator…and who the hell is Alexander?

au where harry and louis are solo artists and they’re not exactly friends per se but they’re friendly, know each other from industry parties and things like that and there’s always been this weird unspoken sexual tension between them and louis’ always kinda confused bc isn’t harry the biggest ladies’ man in the industry
