Do you remember the last time that we were here? Standing right around in this spot? It was right in the beginning, before we really knew each other. I was trying to get away from you, because you were irritating me. And you chased me down, and you caught up to me. I said to you, “Listen, I just have to get all my ducks in a row, right?” And then you said to me… I can be a duck! Yeah. You know, we have been chasing each other for a long time. We’ve been chasing each other through wars and serial killers and ghosts and, you know, chasing you has been the smartest thing that I have ever done in my life. And being chased by you has been my greatest joy, but now we don’t have to chase each other anymore because we caught each other.
You are not the last dream of my soul. You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming. You are the first dream of my soul, and from that dream I hope will come all other dreams, a lifetime’s worth.
Belle, when we met, I wasn’t just unloved, and unloving, I was an enemy of love. Love had only brought me pain. My walls were up, but you broke them down. You brought me home. You brought light to my life and chased away all the darkness. And I vow to you, I will never forget the distance between what I was and what I am. I owe more to you than I can ever say. How you can see the man behind the monster, I will never know.
“I love you, Cleo,“ he said, the words finally coming to him, with no effort at all because of how true they were. “I love you so much it hurts.” Her eyes widened. “What did you just say?” Magnus almost laughed. “I think you heard me right.” (….) He loved her more than anything else in this world.”
Can we talk about this scene please for a sec? Because there are actually people out there who do not like Ran as a character and I’m just sitting here like ?????????
In case you’ve forgotten where this moment is from: Heiji and Kazuha are visiting Tokyo and Kazuha is jealous because Ran and Heiji are wearing similar shirts, just like they did the last time they saw each other - so Kazuha figures they have been coordinating what they were going to wear and she gets jealous and she’s making Ran feel her resentment towards her. So Ran is sitting there, trying her very best to get this girl she barely knows to like her or for her to have a good time at the very least and, sorry, but Kazuha is just being really bitchy. So when Ran asks her why she doesn’t like her and Kazuha tells her the reason, without hesitation, in the middle of crowded Tokyo, Ran just proceeds to get rid of the shirt that upset Kazuha that much and to put on another one they just had bought together. She’s not mad at her for bitching at her, she’s not just ignoring her, hoping the time will just pass faster or whatever, she’s just like: You know what, you are upset and I understand that, so let’s change that. And boom, she just changes, no fucks given, as long as it makes her soon to be friend feel better. Now please, tell me again, what there is to not like about Ran. She always thinks of others first WITHOUT sacrificing who she is as a person. It’s not gonna hurt her to change the shirt, but it’s gonna make Kazuha feel better instantly, so she does it. She could blame Shinichi every time they call for leaving her alone, but she doesn’t. She’s just happy to hear that he’s doing okay and to hear his voice. Sure she’d love to be with him and sure she’s hurt, but instead of turning away, of moving on, she stays true to her first love. Because she loves him, because she’s loyal and humble, she doesn’t expect much from people and I don’t see what’s wrong with that.
there was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of hermione’s arms. running at ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted hermione off her feet
“She turned to look at him, and he was already looking at her. “I’m going to miss you when I wake up,” she whispered, because she realized that she must have fallen asleep under the sun. Arin was too real for her imagination. He was a dream. “Don’t wake up,” he said.”
