“I hated you,” Laurent says, tracing the scars with his fingertips.

Damen starts, then goes still under Laurent’s touch. “I know,” he says after a long moment, his voice slow and rough.

Damen tends to doze off after sex, in the interval between his climax and Laurent returning to their bed, molding himself against Damen’s warm pliant body. Maybe he’d already been asleep.

Maybe Laurent should’ve kept his mouth shut.

“I hated you so badly,” he says. “I’d been hating you so badly for so long. I couldn’t—”

Damen doesn’t move. He stays exactly where he is, curled up on his side with his back to Laurent. Head bent forward, resting on his hands. The curve of his neck looks both appealing and achingly vulnerable. Laurent wants to touch it, wants to kiss it. Wants to cover it with his mouth and his hands to shield it from the world.

“I fixated on you,” Laurent says. He doesn’t want to say these words. He needs to say these words. He’s been holding them inside for too long. They’ve been growing larger in the space between them, even if Damen hasn’t noticed. “People die in war, in battle. In honest combat. I must’ve known, on some level, that it was foolish to hold you—you personally—responsible, but I did. It was easier, blaming you.”

Damianos, prince-killer. The image of his face forever etched into Laurent’s memory. The whisper of his name. All those years Laurent had carried it with him, a maddening undercurrent to his pulse. Damianos, prince-killer. Damianos, who had slain the man Laurent loved more than anyone.

“And then they brought you in front of me,” Laurent says, “trapped, chained, forced down onto your knees, utterly unable to make sense of what was happening to you. Refusing to believe it.”

The way Laurent had felt, after Auguste’s death.

Damianos, prince-killer, who had unwittingly removed the last obstacle standing between Laurent and his uncle.

Damen is breathing hard, Laurent realizes. Curled up on his side, holding still, taking deep shuddering breaths that make his back tremble under Laurent’s hand.

Laurent should’ve kept his mouth shut, but it’s too late now.

“I hated you for so long,” Laurent says, as his fingertips find a thick, ragged line of scar tissue that runs diagonally down one of Damen’s shoulder blades. The lash must’ve cut especially deep here. Too deep for Paschal’s healing salves to assuage it. “If I hadn’t—”

I would never have been able to forgive you.

I would never have been able to forgive myself for forgiving you.

“I had to,” he says, “I’m sorry,” and he leans down to press his lips to the scar, feels Damen shudder under him.

Okay listen Imagine lying in bed all cuddled up next to your boyfriend Calum, while he is still asleep. So you use the moment to not so creepily watch him, because he usually gets to shy when you study his features and you just can’t yourself and admire your handsome boy, wondering how you got so lucky. After some time he opens his eyes and as soon as he catches you staring he starts to hide his face in his hands and crawls further under the blanket and demands with his raspy morning voice that you should stop staring. You do as he wishes, because you know how embarrassed he gets and tell him that you’ll go and make breakfast, but Calum just holds onto you and doesn’t let you leave the bed, trying to hold on to one of the rare mornings you both have together as long as possible. Soon you start to notice that he studies you features just as well, as you try to do with his and ask him why he is allowed to do so and you aren’t. And he just answered that he tries to not to get to close to you, in case you have to break up over the long distance or he fucks something up while he is on tour. And you knew calum had some issues with relationships and the term of love, that is what everyone was saying at least. So you start to ramble about how you want to spend the time you together as close as possible in the best way ever, so you have nothing to regret in case you may break up. And suprisingly he agrees and in your euphoria about the achievement, you accidentally let the three big words slip out of your mouth and you immediately close your eyes, you don’t wanna see the reaction of the boy that apparently isn’t capable of love. But he just says it back, telling you that the time he spends with you, is in fact the first time he feels alive and at peace since a long time!

 I just watched Matpat’s newest video…

 I literally started crying. 

 I knew he was getting hate and a lot of it and hearing him talk about it just broke my heart. I could literally hear the hurt in his voice. He by no means deserved any of that. No one does

 Personally, I love his theories and him as a person. (As all who follow me know) Do I think all his theories are true. No. What I like about them is the creative nature. The amount of work he puts into each one. The way that they make me think. I think some people miss these aspects and just go straight for the hard true/false.

 And just the whole giving the Pope undertale thing that he talked about. I actually thought it was a nice gift, in the symbolic sense. Which, is what Mat intended it to be. I actually got really sad after seeing all the hateful comments towards him afterwards. Some people…

 Mat is a kind, hardworking person who never fails to cheer me up. His theories, his live streams, I adore them all. I am truly sorry that he had to go through all that.

Headcanons for Chocobros with S/O who's frequently loses voice due to being nervous and shy?

((Hehe… S/O you so cute! =P Shy people here, here! Also, for some reason, Gladiolus’ always gets the lolvoice I would write more in but don’t lol.))

Noctis is going to be very confused at first. Considering you are able to talk to him so well, but with other people, you hide behind his back a. It might take him a few seconds until he realizes what is going on. If people are talking to you, he’ll will notice you trying to talk but nothing is coming out. He puts on his big boy pants and nods his head, telling them answers they may want and if they are really pushy, tell them to leave you and him the heck alone. You’re already nervous as is, and them pressuring you isn’t going to be any better and just make Noctis more agitated.

Knowing fully well how it is to be unable to talk sometimes, Prompto will definitely make sure you are feeling comfortable. The first few times, he makes sure that you are comfortable and will be like Noctis, talking for you when you need it and asking you, letting you just whisper answers. (He doesn’t know what you are thinking, so might as well ask!) Prompto will try to help you get over that shyness by introducing you to smaller groups. But he knows if it doesn’t help at all, he’s happy to just keep you smiling and do what makes you comfortable.

Papa bear Gladiolus is going to find your inability to talk the cutest thing ever. He’ll probably mock you playfully a bit when you two are alone about it but he takes this very seriously when you two are actually out with people. People give you shit, he is going to screw them up. (Unless you tug on him and say no. He’s gotta make his boo happy, you know.) He’s a charismatic guy so him talking for you is no issue. But you know, to seriously help this problem, he’s going to teach you to stand tall and look intimidating. Gladio’s not really sure how it would work, but you’re gonna look like a damn cut and fierce kitten or puppy while doing it.

Because he’s the most practical one of the group, Ignis won’t try to force you to talk at all. He’ll let you get used to the conversation and if you do feel like you can finally speak without being nervous, he’s happy. But Iggy comes prepared. You can’t speak, but you can still write can’t you? He makes sure to bring a pen/pencil and paper for you to write in until you feel comfortable with those that you are around. Ignis has the patience of a god. He lets you do you, even if you are a quiet, lil’ thing.

Okay. It’s 5 AM, I’ve given up all hope of sleep, and instead I’m gonna talk about hypnotism in the latest episode of OHC cuz I know a thing or two about hypnosis and this episode was amazing.

First off let me just start by saying the stage hypnotist they hired for the show was FREAKING HILARIOUS. Like, his voice?? What kind of voice is this for a hypnotist to have? He’s constantly loud and his pitch changes erratically, he’s definitely very self absorbed and doesn’t pay any attention to the subjects, he’s very scientific and formulaic and that just. Isn’t how it’s DONE. (Also small pet peeve of mine, but for some reason it bothered me how he was counting Julian down for the deepener and then he counted DOWN AGAIN to wake him up? Like that can be really confusing when your mind is in that state… bleh whatever)

Anyway, basically this guy was a great example of everything a hypnotist should NOT do. But you know who really stood out as using hypnosis the proper way? And no, I’m actually not talking about Julian.

I’m talking about the Narrator.

Granted, we still don’t know why or HOW
the Narrator occasionally basically blocks Julian out from hearing his voice in favor of “narrating” others, but that’s beside the point. The point is that the Narrator was applying himself to John Cameron’s thoughts in this scene, from the INSTANT he laid eyes on Julian. And from that moment, he starts guiding them in a very subtle but very professional way.

His voice changes in mood and tone but there’s a gradual progression of it, going from confusion and curiosity to comfort and relaxation, getting deeper and deeper in pitch. This was just masterfully done: when you’re hypnotizing someone you basically want to guide their thoughts, their emotions, to get them to that relaxed state, and John could hear (even if not consciously, then subconsciously) what he was supposed to be feeling in the Narrator’s voice. And in it you can just hear this underlying… slyness, almost, like he knows full well what he’s doing and he’s enjoying it, he’s enjoying using Julian’s waving arm as a focal point for his little trick…

Also the way his words sort of twist and play into each other so you can’t really tell where one sentence ends and another begins, and then gradually, the spacing gets slower, and slower, untill, finally…

And then of course as soon as the game is up he becomes Julian’s thoughts once again, and shares in his shock like “Oh my WORD, how EVER could this have happened?”

TL;DR: Julian definitely has magic in him, but I think we’re underestimating the Narrator’s role here. He may be “imaginary” but I believe that Julian’s magic has manifested him somehow. Or! Maybe he’s actually a personification OF that magic, and is there to help Julian along with it, whether he knows it or not.

Can you BELIEVE Harry is literally??? Doing an album??? Literally an entire hour or so of JUST HIS VOICE?? And his lyrics??? HOW HE WANTS THEM?? What the fuck !!!!!!!!! AND MUSIC VIDEOS????!?!??


 “What part of don’t touch me didn’t you get!?” Romeo yelled, his instinct taking control of him as he violently shoved the stranger away from him, a clear attempt of harming the other. “You can’t go around touching people like that! What the fuck is the matter with you?” His voice boomed in the hallway, his eyes glistening with tears as he made a desperate attempt to keep his racing mind under control, to ignore that disgusting scent of sweat and beer invading his senses like it had always done back home, before his stepfather decided it was time to have some fun.
