admire from a distance


Imagine. Stiles admiring you from a distance. 

He would allow himself to gaze at you every now and then. You looked so happy. There was always a smile on your lips. He wish he could’ve asked you out, but didn’t want to drag you into the danger that surounded him. So the few times he allowed himself to look at you, he would only hope you one day looked back. 

There is a difference between being in love with a person and being in love with the concept of another person.
The latter is more is admiration; aspiring to be simular to another person, falling knowing it won’t happen. So they watch and ADMIRE, love, from the distance.
The former is what most are familiar with, every Shakespeare Sonet, just about every movie and book put there, there is someone who claims to be in love with another.

I won’t pretend to know what being in love with a person is like, much less the concept of love it’s self, but I know the macanics of both the former and the latter and can tell the difference.

It’s a fear I have; what if I really do ruin everything I touch.
Loving for the rest of my life would feel like standing in an art museum. Wanting to be passionate, to create, but unfortunately failing every time. So instead, I admire, always admiring from a distance.

Key word: royalty au

thank youu! (note: I got very excited about this and couldn’t bring myself to stop, so here’s a ridiculously in depth royalty au for you! hope you like it! <3 )

Keyword Requests!

  • Prince Yuuri who is the most eligible bachelor in the whole world, but because it’s Yuuri he doesn’t believe it, and thinks his people see him as a useless and weak crown Prince. 
  • King Victor who has recently been crowned, and is being nagged by his uncle and adviser Yakov to find a partner already. 
  • The two meeting a few times at various important parties/diplomatic meetings, but Victor doesn’t really notice Yuuri, as Yuuri is shy and keeps to himself whilst his parents are still in charge. 
  • Yuuri admiring Victor from a distance, because he has this presence and class and kindness that he craves to have as a royal. 
  • At Prince Phichit’s insanely huge birthday bash (a masquerade, because obviously, that cliche is great), Victor and Yuuri don’t recognise each other. 
  • Yuuri asking Victor to dance, because the guy was being bothered by a bunch of people who’d worked out who he was, and basically they fall for each other there and then on the dance floor and spend the whole night together. 
  • Victor finding out from Phichit who Yuuri was after the first night, but Yuuri being utterly oblivious the entire time, and thinking he’d just be wooed by some cute young lord or something (Phichit had assumed Yuuri had already worked it out). 
  • Victor also assuming Yuuri knew who he actually was.
  • The two of them (still in masks due to Yuuri’s request as he was nervous) hanging out at Phichit’s ridiculous week-long celebration, and just being cute and swooning over each other.
  • Victor having to return to Russia, but asking Yuuri if he’d consider marrying him when he returned from his business, and Yuuri (still thinking this was just some lower aristocrat) saying yes, but not really believing it would happen. Victor takes this as an acceptance of his proposal, and goes home to tell Yakov he’s engaged. 
  • Victor turning up at Yuuri’s palace a month later because he was invited by Yuuri’s parents after Victor wrote to them apologising for not askign their permission first.
  • Basically just everyone assuming Yuuri knew what was going on, as they waited for Victor to propose, and Yuuri being a completely oblivious and clueless awkward mess who isn’t entirely sure why Victor is being so cute and super weirdly close to him, and thinking how similar he was to the man at Phichit’s party, but not putting two and two together even when they spend so much time together. 
  • Victor giving Yuuri a ring one night and apologising that it was late. Yuuri being totally caught off guard and extremely panicked and confused. 
  • The whole story coming out and both Victor and Yuuri screaming into pillows on the floor in embarrassment as everyone around them is just like “You two are fucking idiots, clearly you’re meant for each other”
  • And they lived happily ever after…
Lots of corpse flowers bloomed in 2016 and nobody knows why
The corpse flower takes ten years to build up enough energy to bloom, but mysteriously, dozens of them bloomed within weeks of each other in 2016
By Ceri Perkins

I’ve admired this carnivorous plant for years (from a distance, tehe!) I’m fascinated that a plant “imitates” the smell of rotting flesh in order to attract and consume insects. Such a clever flower! 

As many times as her heart has been broken, her love never changes. She still manages to love as if she’s never been broken. Her love is beautiful, yet powerful. Her love is like the ocean; many admire it from a distance, but very rarely do people come close and get deep enough in its current to feel just how powerful and strong it really is.

Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Positive Aspects: bold, confident, independent, charming, direct, inspired, enterprising, courageous

The most powerful force on earth is the human soul on fire.

People who shine from within don’t need the spotlight.

The inner fire is the most important thing mankind possesses.

Negative Aspects: uncontrollable, crude, self-serving, dangerous, all-consuming, inattentive, egotistical

She was beautiful but she was beautiful in the way a forest fire is beautiful: something to be admired from a distance, never up close.

Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles to watch you burn.

Your ego is your soul’s worst enemy.

Summary: Castiel has been crushing on you for a very long time now, yet he never told anyone except for Dean, who had enough of watching his best friend denying his feelings and decided to take matters into his own hands, leaving you with a big surprise.

A/N: Written for Smut Appreciation Day!


Dean had known about Castiel’s crush on you for months now. He had told Cas that he would wait and give him time to figure out how to tell you, considering Cas had told him he wanted some time to figure it out.

But now about three months after Dean had found out, Castiel had still not made a move and it drove Dean insane. He hated seeing how Castiel was looking at you, admiring you from a distance but yet he would never go for it.

Sure, Cas was a way different person than Dean, but then again he was never that shy about saying out loud what he felt.

Dean had enough and he promised himself he would make sure Castiel would now finally tell you how he felt. No matter what it would take.

We wanted to dance, but we’re still trying to sing without moving lips, I guess we’ve been loving while our hearts were out getting drunk. Just because I love you doesn’t mean I want to, but let’s talk about how you never leave my thoughts because all I’ve been doing lately is trying to move on. Most days, it’s like you have a finger to my heart, like you know when it doesn’t beat your name, when I’m thinking about someone else or when I’m trying to get you out. Are these dreams still of you or is my soul recalling faded memories of your body pressed on mine in a life that’s become foreign to the both of us? You’re someone I’ve come to admire– from close up or from a distance, we’re both broken anyway. We’ve come to underestimate the pain we sleep on, though your hand will always be my canvas of choice. You’re the only keeping my heart from being torn off my sleeves, you’re the only thing that’s not trying to hurt me. I would tie the wind around your soul to plant your smile into every tomorrow that wakes you. You’re still a wish I couldn’t send to a star as a love letter, no one has ever read you– don’t worry, your secret is safe with me. Always is the song we’re still learning how to sing, but you promised a forever that got trapped inside of a music box, some nights… I still hear the tunes of your apologies; beckoning for the warmth of a November that will never leave my bones. You once let me fall into the coldest winter, this year– I’m the one letting go. We once shared a delicate tale to one another about which one of us loved the other more, this is what we came up with–

I create fires between my hands to keep my bedsheets warm when you aren’t there, but I still wake up in the middle of the night wiping sweat from my forehead. I guess I’m still having nightmares about leaving you forever.
