context is a wonderful thing

@feynites #they’re one of the most notorious couples in the territory exactly because of shit like this #the spymaster won’t let most people get within five feet of them if they don’t want them there #but they’ll drape themselves all over thenerassan like a happy cat 

a shy kiss for notorious idiots who’ve seen and done pretty much everything <3

Today a tiny girl, shorter than my hair and clad ENTIRELY in pink and sparkles, came up to my 6′ self in all black and layered floor-length skirts, and said that she liked my dress.

I think this may be the cutest thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life.

Talk to your parents and learn about them. Their past, their upbringing, their relationships with their parents. It will invariably expose the source of the reasons they say and do things. It may provide the context for things that you have long wondered about. And it may not excuse certain things. But it may bring out an understanding that certain actions had nothing to you, certain emotions or shortcomings existed long before you were even born.
