Dear Journal,

This morning we woke up in panic. It wasn’t really morning but more early midnight. Death eaters were fighting in the streets. I woke up to Sirius yelling and closing the windows. Teddy was crying on the bed, scared to see his father panic like that. I saw bright blue and green lights coming from the streets.

“WE NEED TO LEAVE NOW! PACK A BAG QUICKLY, I’ll BARICADE THE WINDOWS.” Sirius yelled, moving a chest of drawers in front of the window.

I took Teddy in my arms and grabbed the biggest bag I could find. I threw a bunch of clothes in it. We could hear screams from outside. It was terrifying. I ran to Teddy’s room, grabbing the most things I could. He held his two stuffed animals in his arms, not letting them go. I met Sirius in the living room and we both casted a protection spell, hoping our house would not suffer the war.

“WE NEED TO LEAVE!” He yelled.


I ran back into our dark room. I couldn’t leave without it. My memory box. Yes it’s stupid but all my life was in there. My favorite book, pictures from our Hogwarts years, letters Sirius and I wrote to eachother and the most important, my journal. All my mermories were in that little notebook. I ran back to the living room and Sirius took my hand. I looked into his eyes. They had switched from light grey to a darker one. I could see how terrified he was. A few seconds later, we apparated in a silent street. Mum’s and Dad’s street. We catched our breaths and I rocked Teddy slowly so his cries would quiet down. Sirius took us both in his arms and I started crying.

“Sirius..” I said, my voice shaking.

“I know.. I know.. we’re safe.” He said, trying to stay strong.

His eyes were glossy. He didn’t want to cry because he knew one of us had to stay strong. I hated that he was the one to have to do so. He kissed Teddy’s forehead and took my hand.

“Do you think James and Lily are safe?” I asked.

“I hope so. James is a fast thinker, they’re probably already to his parents’ house..” Sirius said.

He would’ve felt it if something was wrong. Believe me, him and James were connected. We walked to my parents’ house and i rang the door bell. Dad opened the door, wearing a robe over his pyjamas. He frowned when he saw us. We came in and mum hugged me as Sirius explained what had happened.

“My poor boys.. You must be so shaken up.. Do you want some tea?” Mum asked, taking Teddy in her arms.

“Oh yes please mum..” I said.

My heart was still beating a hundred miles per hour. I sipped my tea slowly as Mum and Dad talked to us. Teddy was asleep in Mum’s arms.

“Have you put up a protection spell?” Dad asked.

“We did.. But I don’t know if it will work..” Sirius said, getting anxious.

“Oh believe me, it will. Don’t worry about your house, if you protected it, nothing will have moved, not even a frame.” Dad said.

Sirius was ressured by this. He slid his hand in mine. We’ve worked so hard to build this home for our family.

“You boys should get some rest.. You can use the bathroom upstairs tommorow morning, i’ll have some towels ready.” Mum smiled, kissing my cheeks and handing me the sleeping Teddy.

“Thank you Mum.. have a goodnight..” I said.

“Thank you for letting us stay..” Sirius smiled at my parents.

“It’s no problem.. now sleep well boys.” Dad nodded.

We walked upstairs and I opened the door that lead to my old room. I expected it to be empty or redecorated into an office.. but no, my bed was still there. My walls were still covered with pictures and photographs. It still had that lavender smell to it. I dropped the bag on the floor and layed down in the soft sheets, Sirius joining me. The sleeping Teddy was set in between the two of us, holding his two plushies. We wrapped our arms around eachother. Protected and safe.

“We’ll be okay right?” I asked Sirius, whispering.

“We will.” He said with a sad smile.

I wrapped the covers tighter around us, as if they could be a shield. Sirius took hold of my shaking hand and kissed it softly.

“I love you.” He whispered.

“I love you too.”

lol people saying they fixed Taylor sleeves when there is pics of a bodyguard/security guy all tattoed doing it, and there was a meter at least from the baricades to the stage (I was there), Being front row is special enough, dont lie :)

noneuclideanromance  asked:

There's a piece of music by Francois Couperin called Les Baricades Misterieuses, and apparently the meaning of "mysterious barricades" is a woman's eyelashes. It's a very pretty piece of music. But consider: Watson sitting across the breakfast table from Holmes reading the paper and Holmes stopping and staring at his eyelashes that turn gold in the morning sunlight and being all (❤/////❤)

oh oh! and that happens the morning after they went to a concert and that piece was played and Watson just loved it for many reasons :>

The real barricade boys?

I’d really love to find out some of the names of the actual students who lead the June Rebellion of 1832. Probably a lost case, don’t know if they ever were registered, but it’s been on my mind a lot lately. It would’ve been so cool to like find the equivalent to Enjolras or something like that. I don’t know, just a silly thought, but if anyone knew where to look of if there’s even a possibility that this was registered then that would’ve been so great.

How To Be Safe in ERS 2016-17

1. Check your venue restrictions before you get there. What cameras are you allowed to bring in? Usually you can’t bring in outside food and drink, but check to make sure. Look at purse restrictions (I actually had to put up five bottles of water which ended me to pass out, I had one bottle of water the entire day which leads to my next point), to make sure that you can bring them to the venue. 

2. Drink a lot of water throughout the day. Do not chug water. Dehydration starts as soon as you sweat, if you chug there is a chance that your stomach can’t handle it. Sip it, but water is not good enough. My doctor reccomended after I passed out last year that if you are standing in the heat you have to replenish electrolytes as well since sweat decreases your salt in your blood. Get a Gatorade or Powerade as well to sip if possible. If not get something salty at the venue such as fries, just make sure that you get extra water with it. There is a balance. 

3. Even if you are not hungry, eat. Eat a big breakfast if you get there early and get food throughout the day. If you are in a seating venue or an ampitheatere, eat a dinner beforehand to make sure you have enough energy while you are there. I find it pretty draining, but it’s an amazing night. 

4. Bend your knees while standing, people will drop in the military (the formation requires for you to stand straight, but locked knees are a terrible thing) due to this, your blood doesn’t flow well if they aren’t and could lead to the blood not flowing correctly and you passing out. 

5. If possible, bring a friend or make friends. Safety in numbers, groups of friends allow for a better time and it will be harder to push you (we made a block that prevented people from pushing). Friends will also know if something is up with you sometimes before you will know. Plus if something does happen you can get out easier. 

6. Anxiety? I have it and standing in the middle is the absolute worst for anxiety and claustrophobia. Navigate towards the sides if needed because it makes it easier for you to leave if needed. 

7. Don’t be afraid to refuse your spot either. If you are at the baricade and someone wants to push you out of the way, give yourself a poised position that gives yourself more room. Do not get aggressive, but don’t back down if someone wants your spot.

8. Use the restroom when you need to, you don’t want to hurt yourself by getting an UTI or anything, please use the restroom when you need to. 

9. Don’t be afraid to sit down if you can. If you have a seat and need to sit down, do it. Ask someone to get yourself something if you start to feel dizzy in any way. 

10. If you are old enough to drink, drink one or two. Someone got alcohol poisoning at their shows that I know and was in the hospital for a couple days. Please restrict yourself if possible and if you do drink, get a sober friend to help you drive. 

11. Know your symptoms for heat exhaustion. Get into a shaded area and sit down. Your safety is more important and I hate to say that if you are near the front if this happens, shade or leave. If you vomit, go. I had to get a full IV.  Go to the doctor’s or if you pass out like me go to the doctor. If you can’t afford it, get a friend to drive you home and rest, replenish your water and electrolytes by sipping. 

12. Wear as little as possible, with lightest colors as possible. I know that red beanie and flannel is amazing but take it off when you get there if you want to wear it. You could get overheated. 

This is all I can think of, if you have anything to add, please go ahead!

Do you hear the people sing?
Lost in the valley of the night
It is the music of a people who are climbing to the light
For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
They will live again in freedom in the garden of the Lord
They will walk behind the ploughshed, they will put away the sword.
The chain will be broken and all men will have their reward!
Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the baricade is there a world you long to see?
Do you hear the people sing? Say do you hear the distant drums
It is the future that they bring when tomorrow comes
—  Les Miserables
Fii simplă alături de el. Fii așa cum ești tu. În ziua în care a decis să îți scrie numele adânc pe inimă, a decis și cu cine să împartă această zi. Cu tine! Fii fericită ținându-l de mână, și nu încerca să creezi baricade pline de cuvinte și mofturi mărunte. Nu îl sufoca cu întrebări, și nici cu mesaje. Da, îi place când îți manifești dragostea față de el, dar îi place să fie o dragoste sinceră. Nu poseda. Oferă-i libertatea să aleagă. Dacă va dori să rămână, va rămâne. Nu încerca să pari altfel, să pui în față orgoliul feminin chiar și când nu ai dreptate. Greșeste și el, dar greșești și tu. Construiește și el, construiește și tu. Nu-ți asuma întreaga dragoste, ai putea ramâne cu ea, doar cu ea. Și nu plânge fără motiv, pentru că el vrea să plângi doar de bucurie.
