Joan of Arc

by Leonard Cohen

Now the flames, they followed Joan of Arc
as she came riding through the dark;
no moon to keep her armour bright,
no man to get her through this very smoky night.
She said, “I’m tired of the war.
I want the kind of work I had before,
a wedding dress or something white
to wear upon my swollen appetite.”

“Well, I’m glad to hear you talk this way.
You know, I’ve watched you riding every day,
and something in me yearns to win
such a cold and lonesome heroine.”
“And who are you?” she sternly spoke
to the one beneath the smoke.
“Why, I’m fire,” he replied,
“And I love your solitude; I love your pride.”

“Then fire, make your body cold.
I’m going to give you mine to hold,”
saying this she climbed inside
to be his one, to be his only bride.
And deep into his fiery heart
he took the dust of Joan of Arc,
and high above the wedding guests
he hung the ashes of her wedding dress.

It was deep into his fiery heart
he took the dust of Joan of Arc,
and then she clearly understood
if he was fire, oh, then she must be wood.
I saw her wince, I saw her cry,
I saw the glory in her eye.
Myself, I long for love and light,
but must it come so cruel, and oh so bright?

What if Trish and Ruca ended up together?

maybe on Jupiter hehe
Ruca is a lot like me in the way of when she dislikes someone it’s forever lol I remember kids from first grade I don’t like and if I saw them today I would put a laxative in their Starbucks or accidentally spill red wine on their wedding dress

I love the idea of toddler Alex walking around the house in Lexa's shoulder pads, jersey and helmet. It all just completely swamping her and she looks like a very tiny QB. And now I'm imagining toddler Alex finding Lexa's wedding dress and walking around telling everyone she's a princess.

Toddler Alex dressing up as Lexa, just like all the time. Lmao they call her to dinner and she walks in with full gear (helmet included) and just sits at the table and Lexa’s like?????

And out comes a muffled “The TV said to dress up like my hero” 

Lexa cries into her wine glass 

Who wants cultural wedding dress options in RoE?

I know that we’re still not sure whether the Rules of Engagement siblings were originally Asian from Book One; or whether they just magically turned Asian in Book Three (I know @maggiegames has some strong feelings about this 😊); or whether they’re not even Asian at ALL in the first place…

…but either way, I have a suggestion. When the MC finally chooses her wedding dress, wouldn’t it be cool if there were some options for traditional Asian, African, European, and other wedding dresses? 👘👰

If anybody likes this idea, maybe you can reblog this post with a picture of what a traditional wedding dress looks like from your culture! 😊

And for authenticity, include details that foreigners might not know, if there are any 😀 Or you can just reblog this post with a picture of ANY wedding dress you’d like the MC to wear, whether or not it’s traditional 😋

Who knows… we might inspire @playchoices to include more diverse options when the big day arrives! 😊
