You know what I’ve just noticed? You know what breaks my heart?
In this scene, when Lexa tells Clarke “Ai gonplei ste odon”, and Clarke responds by “No, I won’t accept that”, you can see Lexa slightly smiling.
You’re driven to fix everything for everyone.
Even in her last moments, Lexa lovingly smiles, and stares at Clarke. She’s staring at the girl who always makes the best decision for her people, the girl who never backs away from a possibility to make peace with her ennemies, the girl who always wants to save as many people as she can.
With her last bits of strength, she smiles and stares lovingly at Clarke.
What she finds is partly comfort, because she knows the girl she loves will always be herself. She will always seek the best in life. Even in the worst situations.
But as we can see, Lexa has tears in her eyes. She unsuccessfully closes her eyes to hold back her tears, but knows some are still escaping.
Now, do you believe Lexa, Commander of thirteen clans, a long time trained fighter and leader, who is used to suffering in silence, both physically and mentally, who willingly grabbed a sword with her bare hands, freshly and quickly slicing them in the way, would cry?
Yes, taking a bullet freaking hurts, but Lexa wouldn’t cry at the physical pain.
Lexa is crying, because as much as she finds comfort in seeing that Clarke is, and will always be, herself in any kind of situation, she knows who she’s leaving behind. She knows that she’s once again abandoning Clarke, and that, once again, Clarke will be hurt because of her. Only this time, Lexa wasn’t the one to make that choice.
This time, they’re not in the cold, dark woods near Mount Weather. They’re in Polis, the place that made Clarke fall for Lexa once again, a place reflecting hope, and life. They’re in Lexa’s home, a place where they exchanged rough, and yet sweet conversations, where Clarke found peace while drawing Lexa in her sleep, where she found Lexa’s fears and hopes for the future; but mostly, where they found each other, going desperately and hungrily after each other’s lips barely a few hours ago.
Lexa was never afraid of dying, but this time, just to lay by Clarke’s side in their bed, she wishes she could just breathe a little longer.
And this time, as Clarke kisses her goodbye, Lexa falls asleep for good, only wishing she could hold those lips against her own forever.
waddup, it me, ur local poc princess/trash queen raja! here go some random plots based off of partynextdoor songs for u and ur friends (or ;> for u and me) to make some threads for!!
high hopes: ‘everything’s still good with me, i got high hopes when i’m checking on you.’
— muse a and muse b once were involved with each other, whether there had been a serious relationship or the two were simply platonic. after a falling out on relatively good terms, the two find themselves back in each other’s lives once more, catching up on their ventures despite how much time has passed with hopes that nothing between them has changed.
let’s get married: ‘all i need, is to make it feel like forever when it’s temporary, let’s get married.’
— muse a and muse b are currently best friends, and both live similar fast paced lives - with one being a hopeless romantic, and the other flying through relationships trying to find the right one. after a long night of talking and drinking, the two come to a very obvious conclusion: why don’t they just marry each other?
girl from oakland: ‘you’re the reason you’re lonely tonight, but it’s the season to get back your life.’
— muse a is ready and willing to devote themselves into a relationship with muse b, but b is more than reluctant. heartbreak after heartbreak seems to have plagued muse b, and despite sharing the same feelings for muse a, they can’t help worrying if things will only end up going wrong. muse a loves muse b, but they don’t want to wait any longer.
jus know: ‘i see you then look away, just know, ‘cause i remember what you took away.’
— muse a and muse b were once together throughout their school days and through college, when muse a had been young and struggling to make a living. muse b had been better off, therefore paid for their outings and drove them everywhere - leading muse b to cheat on muse a and eventually leave them. years later, muse a has made themselves incredibly successful, and after running into muse b, there’s nothing but the cold shoulder.
east liberty: ‘the summer’s over, and i feel the same way you do.’
— muse a and muse b have decided to spend their summer vacation travelling together, being that muse a doesn’t have a stable home to return to and muse b is more than fond of muse a. throughout their vacation, muse b slowly comes to terms with the feelings they have for muse a, and on the very last day of their vacation, muse b works the courage to tell them exactly how they feel before it’s too late.
tbh: ‘it’s all over your face, there’s someone taking my place.’
— muse a and muse b’s relationship has been practically nonexistent lately, with a lack of communication and nights often spent apart instead of together. after months of suspicion and questions without answers, muse a decides to confront muse b to confirm their assumptions.
thirsty: ‘am i moving too fast? fuck that.’
— muse a and muse b were once in a relationship, but after rushing into their relationship and experiencing bumps in the road, the two drifted apart aside from the occasional subtweets and likes via instagram. muse a never lost their feelings for muse b however, and after risky texts and DMs, muse a vows to make up for the lost time.
don’t run: ‘your mother just called my phone up, sounds like your party is over.’
— muse a always lived their life recklessly, often staying out all night and even going as far as disappearing for days at a time with a bad crowd. enter muse b, the one person who’s constantly saving them from themselves and making sure to look after them to make sure they recover. one night, when muse a parties too hard for the weekend, muse b gets a phone call from muse a’s mother - and it doesn’t sound too promising.
you’ve been missed: ‘i just want peace, babe, and i just want you.’
— muse a once led a gritty life of crime, something that shortly caught up with them when they eventually served a lengthy term in prison. however, their significant other muse b never once left their side, often writing letters and visiting whenever it was possible. now that muse a is out, they’re trying to change their life for the better, but their past often gets in the way of a chance they have at a fresh start. the only thing that keeps them going is muse b, and the life they’ve always dreamed of starting with them.
spiteful: ‘what we had wasn’t love, so don’t be spiteful, and i won’t be spiteful.’
— muse a and muse b once had a thing for each other, but neither of them could actually call it a relationship. after exhaustion of putting their energy into something that couldn’t and wouldn’t last, muse a decides to stop their involvement with muse b. this only leads to an unspoken competition of who could make the other more jealous, going through partners and constantly arguing over who had been better at what.
nothing easy to please: ‘i’m nothing easy to please, and i don’t fall easily.’
— after pressure from friends to break from studying, muse a decides to spend the night out partying with friends. there, they run into muse b, a fairly attractive person with lots to offer - but they’re more than skeptical of muse b’s intentions. muse b makes constant attempts to woo muse a, but with dreams that outweigh a relationship, muse a hardly gives them time of day, hoping that muse b eventually gets the hint.
