Take a bucket and fill it with all of your worries.
All of them.
Every single one.
Then take that bucket, and empty it into the natural flow of the universe. Allow each worry to be washed away,
And vanish out of sight.
Allow for the natural way of things to act in its own timing. It will take away all of your worries. It knows the way, so surrender your torturous thoughts,
For everything will be alright.
When I go to the bookstore, I’ll grab books and read the last few pages. I want to know how it ends. I want to know where we end up. Hollywood executives always read the first and last page of a screenplay, and if the characters don’t change, they toss the script. We inherently want a landing, a safe conclusion, a final punctuation on the sentence of life.
When I first read the Bible for myself, I started at Revelation. I wanted to know if everything was going to be okay. I heard about the Fall of Man and all the ugly things that happened in Genesis; I knew about the flood and the tower of Babel and the incest and the wars. In Revelation, I was overwhelmed. Everything was getting put right again. Justice was unrolling from Heaven, angels speaking with mere men, evil squashed to pieces, healing was all over the place. Since then, I read the Bible very differently. I know that the first page doesn’t get to say everything about us, and we get a landing, a final sentence of victory. We get to win, because God does.
it’s so so funny when people continue to call harry straight after he said he doesn’t label his sexuality fgshcjsjfn y'all are so committed to defending his non-existent heterosexuality that y'all don’t even realize how homophobic it is lol
After Person B has given Person A several rain checks for dates, A goes to their house to find answers. Though, B admits they were cursed with immortality, and wanted to avoid further falling in love for them because of it.
I’m seeing a lot of young transgender or non-binary people out there freaking out or going completely silent and removing all their info from their bios in light of the recent news in America. And I get that, I really, truly do.
But I also want you guys to know that it’s safe to come talk to me if you’re feeling pressured or scared or angry or whatever you’re feeling. If you’re comfortable with talking to me, go for it. :)
Secondly, if you’ve spoken to me about your gender for whatever reason, and are feeling scared about someone else finding out or you being being outed for any reason, please know that I will never reveal anything we have spoken about, anything you have sent to me or asked me about (as an anon or not) to anyone. What we discuss is private, and unless you give me permission to respond publicly or speak about it to others, it will stay between us. Always.
Honestly at this point I feel like the greatest obstacle to making Ganon stop attacking Hyrule would just be at this point he is probably so incredibly paranoid, it’d be hard for him to take to any proposed ceasefire or treaty- like even before he’s considering ways to twist this in his favor he’s too busy trying to figure out what the other person’s angle is, and the more he can’t find one the more uncomfortable he’d get.
If he could actually believe this is legitimately what they’re offering I can’t see him turning his nose at a perfectly good “can I put down my bow, he puts down his dead sword, and you put down whatever you’re using these days and we nurse our respective trauma in peace” agreement.
Hell, considering where Ganon was in BotW I’m reasonably sure Link could at least get a foot in the door just by making some really good food and tempting him with it, like. when was the last time anyone did any even slightly small kind thing for him.
Like… okay so Zelda, in one memorable incarnation responded to the royalty of a banished Realm Of Forbidden Darkness equated to hell itself showing up at a time where power from said realm was taking over Hyrule by worrying after Midna and making very personal sacrifices on her behalf. She is exactly the kind of person who would worry about the welfare of sealed “ancient godless evils”. She is actually pretty much someone in a good place to be more or less telepathically punched in the face by just how bad Ganon is doing without him even meaning to.
And Link- Link thinks everything looks like friend, pretty much. In BotW he will attempt to tame bears. Literally if you just had him run into Ganon without any of the destiny-and-peril context he is exactly the kind of person who would adopt some kind of shabby demon person he found embedded in a wall by virtue of nothing else that Ganon isn’t doing well.
Link wants to help everyone, Zelda is deeply empathetic and so duty-bound that it would really do her better to be a little selfish for once, and Ganon would logically like very much to not be hurting any more. The cycle is, if anything, a stilted situation that forces them back into their roles and back at each other’s throats, and with very minor shifts in context one way or another they could so easily get along.
And quite frankly… tell me that wouldn’t make the threads of an interesting story.
