Author’s Note: This part is way too damn long. I really just like the ending. But I also couldn’t figure out what I wanted to cut so you’re getting all of it.
As we climb back to the car, Y/N has slipped off of Sam’s shoulders and shoved past him, nearly running up the trail, farther away from Sam. And from me. When we make it to the top of the trail and the edge of the parking lot, Steve looks to me with a shocked and unsure shrug, lifting his hands up in question. She barely speaks to anyone, only muttering a disgruntled, “Trunk, please” to Steve.
Once we’ve changed into dry clothes, Y/N tosses her now useless phone haphazardly into the trunk and grabs for her dated Atlas before slipping into the car without a word. She doesn’t move closer to me, she doesn’t look up from her Atlas. Goddamn it. She’s so upset. “Go left,” she instructs with a heavy sigh as she flips through the pages until she finds the map for South Dakota. She traces over an already marked road until it reaches the end of the page, before moving quickly over to Wyoming.
okay but like the reason why Pierre’s fatness is so important to me is because his and Natasha’s story is the only one out there that I can think of off of the top of my head in which a fat character is desired and loved by someone and it’s not in spite of their fatness???? like Natasha doesn’t love Pierre “even though he’s fat”…..it’s not like some heavy burden she has to bear………..she just…..is attracted to Pierre…….and loves Pierre….just the way he is……and she doesn’t try to change him……
call me crazy but I like when I feel connected to a character and I like feeling there’s hope for me and that someone might love me and that my weight wouldn’t even be a thought that would cross their mind as a reason not to love me???????
so like please stop trying to take his fatness away in order to serve your idea of attractiveness lol
honestly if you want a skinny character who finds love literally read almost anything else because you’ll find it????????? like don’t get it twisted skinny people deserve love but it’s everywhere and I don’t get to see myself in a lot of “desirable characters” i’m always forced to identify as the best friend who gets fat jokes thrown at them left and right and you know what that is a tiresome thing my fellas
tl;dr: Let fat characters be fat without making them apologize for it you ghouls
Well there aren’t any canon Dalish holidays, so I’ve made some up! All of the pantheon are included, as well as a remembrance day for Halamshiral. All of this is 100% fan made. This is not canon. I simply wanted to share with others a resource they can use in case they don’t want to come up with a bunch of holidays themselves. Elven language courtesy of fenxshiral If you use this, please credit me :D And please, please don’t repost!
Sael'leanatha'vun'in (Day of First Praise)
On the first day of the third week in Justinian, the Dalish celebrate the beginning of a new year with a day to Mythal their protector. Many give offerings of fruits and flowers, and the day is celebrated as a day of rest, where people put down their work, instead relying on Mythal’s blessing for their needs. It is a day of lazing, talking with friends, and sharing stories both old and new. Commonly, foods are preserved from the day before. Any leftover meat, dried fruits, nuts, etc. It’s to signify appreciating what you already have instead of looking ahead to the next meal.
Revas'sule'din (Freedom unto Death)
August 1st is a day of remembrance for the loss of Halamshiral and the Dales. The clan will plant a Vallasdahlen, a remembrance tree, for their lost brothers and sisters, as well as their homeland. A common dish on Revas'sule'din is flatbread with honey and soured fruits to show the simultaneous sweet and bitter memory of the Dales.
El'u'enal'vun'in (Revealing Secrets Day)
The first day of the third week in Kingsway marks the fall equinox, when the days begin to wane into darker and colder times. As fall begins it is also time to think ahead to the coming winter and the hardships it brings. Dirthamen is called upon for wisdom and knowledge to bring in enough supplies to weather the colder months. People call upon Dirthamen to reveal his secrets by leaving food out that attracts ravens to the area (brave clans will also attempt to attract bears). It is also customary to take a secret to Dirthamen as an offering. A secluded alter is set up with a fire and a visitor will speak their secret to the flames or, if they are able, write it down and cast the note to be burned in the flames. Some people also choose to sleep without a covering that night to show their openness to obtaining knowledge.
Halam'harellan (The Last Traitor)
The first day of the third week in Haring is for remembering Fen'Harel’s deception. Children of all ages in the clan are brought together to play the different roles of the pantheon to retell the story. Each pantheon member has their own mask for the children to wear, including one for Fen'Harel. Customarily, it is the duty of the First to direct the children in the play, as well as to play the role of Fen'Harel. The performance is done just before sundown for the adults. After the play, the clan will drink a cup of salted water and eat bitter herbs (usually parsley or carrot leaves). No dinner is eaten that night, and a small feast is had for breakfast the next day if the resources are available to show hope for a better morning.
Thenathe'vun'in (Day of Awakening)
1st Guardian is the day to Falon'Din. It is a day to venerate the dead and a day of reflection. Fires are lit to ward off the night and a vigil is kept until morning as a symbol of how the elves can no longer pass into uthenera and gain enlightenment from Falon'Din. If there are statues of Falon'Din and Dirthamen in the clan, they are moved to opposite side of the camp. A volunteer is also chosen to carry a shepherd’s staff with him/her and circle the outskirts of the camp during the vigil. The amount of time varies by clan. Similar to Dirthamen, food is left out to attract owls during the night.
Elgara'enal'sal (Returning Sun)
The third week of Draconis is the Spring solstice and the day for Elgar'nan. It is a time for welcoming the sun back from winter, and for thanking Elgar'nan for allowing the sun its place in the sky. It’s customary to wear something yellow or bring in yellow flowers to denote the sun. Ashes are sprinkled on the members of the clan to protect them from Elgar'nan’s ire and invoke his vengeance on their behalf. The Elgara'alas'nirun (Sun Dance) is performed as well, telling the story of how Elgar'nan cast down the sun.
Ghi'myelanes'vun'in (Hunter’s Day)
1st Cloudreach is the day to celebrate Andruil and the hunt. There is usually a competition for the best hunter, the best marksman, and the most stealthy member of the clan. Lessons in archery are given precedence to people of all ages, especially the children. Children are also brought along on a short hunting trip to learn more of the Vir Tanadahl (The Way of Three Trees). Customarily, a hare is caught for good fortune and released at the end of the day. Some clans also have a competition among the youngest hunters to see who can kill the escaped hare.
Haurasha'man (Golden Time)
June, Sylaise, and Ghilan'nain are celebrated together for the entire first week of Bloomingtide. It is a festive time with many games and gift giving. Ornaments are made for the halla, and some people choose to give them gifts of their own. A gift exchange usually happens the last day of the week between close friends to show the strength of the relationship (it’s not a romantic gift exchange no matter the gender or orientation of the parties involved). Flower crowns are very popular during the festivities. The staple dish of the week is a fruit, nut, and honey mixture similar to charoset.
