1. Half a Person // The Smiths - “16, clumsy, and shy.” the reason why louder than bombs is my top teen angst album. Morrissey, somber lyrics, really all you need on a night holed up in your room.

2. Champagne Supernova // Oasis - Is it cliche? unsure I feel like caring at this juncture, I spent 15 on an oasis revival. I somehow manage to make sense out of the Gallagher’s lyrical trip.

3. I miss you // Blink 182 - two cliche’s and counting. This is everyone’s teen angst song, even if you don’t listen to Blink-also who the hell doesn’t listen to Blink?

4. Jude Law and a Semester Abroad // Brand New - not so much angst as it just makes me want to yell at you

5. I want to be buried in your backyard // Nightmare of you - a band I feel wildly underrated, unless it isn’t and I am just an ignorant ass. “I want to be buried in your backyard, and when the flowers grow just know you’re still in my heart,” is beautifully morbid, an obvious anthem of my own depravity.

6. Hello, I’m in Delaware // City and Colour - this song was how I got by after my dad passed away.

7. Now Mary // The White Stripes - My blogs namesake, “what a season to be beautiful without a reason,” one of my all time favorite lyrics and gives me chills for some reason unbeknownst to me.

8. Lover, you should’ve come over // Jeff Buckley - Jeff sure knows how to induce premature teen tears.

9. All Apologies // Nirvana - listen to this in the dark. And Loudly.

10. Simple Song // The Shins - the one song that actually uplifts me, and makes me nostalgic without needing a reason to be.

Oh I love this one so much I had to do it.

Put your music on shuffle and list the first ten songs and your favourite lyrics from each one

1. The Rocket Summer- Treasures

So I’ll fall asleep and try not to think twice about all the things that forever will kick me down the steps for being too nice.

2. Blink 182- Going Away To College

Bouquet of clumsy words, a simple melody. This world’s an ugly place, but you’re so beautiful to me.

3. Say Anything- Signal the Riflemen

Let’s make love on top of broken blackboards, I’ll slide the colored chalk around your every curve.

4. The Front Bottoms- Tattooed Tears

Let’s talk about how it felt on my shoulders as it came pouring out my ears. Let’s talk about the face of our love and how it might look with the addition of tattooed tears.

5. The Format- If Work Permits

I’m here to tell you loves not some fucking blood on the receiver. Love is speaking in code, it’s an inside joke. Love is coming home.

6. Motion City Soundtrack- Last Night

My body aches, it heaves, it shakes. All somersaults through so-called art and I still don’t know exactly who I am. I never will, amen.

7. Brendon Urie ft. Nate Ruess- C’mon

Try not to mistake what you have with what you hate, it could leave, it could leave come the morning. Celebrate the night, it’s the fall that will define. Shall we sing ‘til the morning? If I fall forward, you fall flat. If the sun should lift me up, would you come back?

8. Go Radio- What If You Don’t

There was a time I had a symphony and it played love to me for days. Then all at once I heard the strings, out of tune and out of key.

9. Anberlin- Dismantle. Repair.

Hands, like secrets, are the hardest thing to keep from you.Lines and phrases, like knives, your words can cut me through. Dismantle me down, repair. You dismantle me, you dismantle me.

10. Bayside- Sinking and Swimming on Long Island

My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside, but it’s high tide and they get washed away with time.

Wow. This turned out so much better than I could’ve imagined. Thank you iPhone for shuffling my music pretty perfectly. The only skips I made were repeat bands because what fun is that?

Day 5: “You were my new dream” | Dreams

<<Hiccup blinked several times, making sure that his vision was clear: there was no doubt, the person in front of him was real.

He blushed. It doesn’t happen very often that you find yourself face-to-face with the man of your dreams. Literally. Because Hiccup has dreamed about him everyday since the day he was born, he knows him so well by now. He knows his white and tousled hair, his naughty smile, his cold hands and his beautiful blue eyes. So when the name escapes his lips it’s the most natural thing in the world.

“Jack Frost” he whispered and Jack opened his eyes fully, widened them in surprise.

“Can— Can you see me?” Hiccup nodded “Do you—” he hesitated “Do you remember me?”

Hiccup blushed even more and looked away.

“Yes… I remember everything”

And she had never been one for adventure, but that night she ran across narrow bridges that crossed rivers and flew down steep tunnels between dams. The moon was there to keep her company and it showed her the way of the ravenous tides, as well as illuminated the blinking city at her feet. Her lips were red and swollen from kissing the boy with the calloused hands and wanderlust eyes and she was laughing harder than she had in ages. She was free.

Random Mass Effect headcanon -

(a century after the Reaper War)

Her brow furrows. The echo is faint but still distinct. “It would be easy for a single ship to get lost out there”

“It’s been years. A century. And you’re still wondering.”

She lowers her head slightly, regarding her untouched drink, and smiles. “You’re one to talk, Dad.”

Aethyta shrugs, looking away from her daughter and blinking out over the city. The congestion, the hum of activity and life, compact and yet empty. “You got me there. Guess we’re suckers for that true love shit, eh?”

She raises the glass to her lips finally, but holds it there, suspended and still. “Or we can’t let go of the memories.”

“Just a bunch of ache to drive us to drink or to punch things.” Aethyta ventures a glance at her daughter, at a profile lost in thought, or regret, or a hundred other emotions that feel a mirror image to decades she herself would rather forget. "Aw hell, babe… if you had left–”

“I know.” Liara puts the glass back down with a sigh, a strange pendulum of movement. “It would have just been a matter of time before they found us. There was no escaping what was coming. We… she… had to face it directly.”

“You had some good years. Rough, but–” Her tone is soft, tentative.

“I know.”

“More than most.”


Aethyta scratches at her forehead, a nervous twitch of frustration. “Dammit. You know I’m no good at this. Diplomacy, saying the right thing… that was Nezzy’s specialty… well…”

She turns to her, one eyebrow arching high.

The matriarch gives a loud grunt, half laughter, half cough. “Yeah, yeah. Inappropriate. Look. I’ve said it before, and it all comes out wrong and too weak to make a difference–”

“Dad. Why do you think we talk about it so much?”

“Cuz we’re gluttons for bittersweet punishment?”

She inhales slowly, then reaches over to grasp her father’s hand. “Because it makes a difference. Each time. A little bit each time.”

Aethyta looks down at their hands, at the entwined fingers. Family wasn’t something she had ever been seeking, but… “Well, shit. We’re going at it slow, huh? At this rate–”

Liara smiles, a little more at ease now. “It’s okay. Maybe it just needs to take as long as it takes.” She raises her glass and takes a sip. “For both of us.”
