et haec

|| Latin and the Raven Cycle ||

ostendes tuum et ostendam meus : I’ll show you mine if you show me yours

excelsior: ever upward 

arbores loqui latine: the trees speak Latin

rex corvus parate regis corvi: make way for the raven king

non mortem somni fratrem: not death, but his brother, sleep

forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit: and perhaps it will be pleasing to have remembered these things one day

Ronan wrapped his arms around Adam, pinning Adam’s upper arms against him. He was contained. “Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit,” Ronan said into Adam’s hearing ear, and Adam’s body sagged against Ronan, chest heaving. […] His head rested miserably on Ronan’s shoulder, everything shaking, standing only because Ronan did not allow him to sink.

So on my second read of TRK...

I took the time to look up some of the Latin phrases used and I got to this part:

Forsan et haec olim meminisse juvabit,” Ronan said into Adam’s hearing ear, and Adam’s body sagged against Ronan, chest heaving. His hands still jerked and strained to violence. He gasped, “You asshole,” but Ronan could hear how near tears he was.

and then I found this:

and then I promptly dissolved into a puddle because oh my lord could they be any more adorable.

Master Post of Classicists on Tumblr

This is a growing list of the people on Tumblr who are Classicists and part of the Classics fandom. I will attempt to keep it up-to-date. If you don’t want to be on this list, please let me know and I’ll remove you asap. If you do want to be on the list and you’re not, let me know and I’ll sort that out pronto as well. 

Note: nearer the bottom there is a separate list of resource blogs.

After 3 books, when you think you can’t love Ronan Lynch any more...

In TRK He:

Straight up pulls some Snow White shit at the Barnes

Eases every tense situation with wry humor

Spits in Robert Parrish’s yard while giving him the death stare.

Is poetic and daring with Adam - loves him furiously

Kisses Adam first!

Basically acts as Orphan Girl’s father (“Put your hands in your pockets!”)

Doesn’t think before diving in after her when she’s drowning

Has easy banter with Blue

Gives Declan that inch.

Whispers “Forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit” (A joy it will be one day, perhaps, to remember even this) to Adam when he is possessed  Just the thing to calm him.

Fights till the bitter end when he is being “unmade”

…I mean….Just….GAH!

Ronan Fucking Lynch.

anonymous asked:

Hey! Could u do a pynch one where maybe Ronan and Declan are fighting and Adam tries to step in, but maybe Declan yells real loud or moves to quickly and it makes Adam like flinch back, and all the fighting defuses and its just Ronan comforting Adam? Thanks!

Adam didn’t know what to do. 

This was Lynch family business, he had no say in whatever went on between Ronan and Declan. Except, Adam was with Ronan now, so maybe that meant that he could step in when he wanted. 

It was such a stupid fight too. It was something so insignificant, something about holidays, and college and what Ronan should be doing. Declan normally was happy for Ronan, that or he had just given up altogether, but every once and a while, Declan brought the subject of college up and decided to try and convince Ronan to be something more than a farmer. 

That was Declan Lynch’s way of proving that he cared. 

“Jesus fuck,” Ronan shook his head, waving his hands around. “You know, you can’t talk to me about this crap, this is my house.”

“Oh suck a dick Ronan.” Declan snapped, throwing the dish cloth at him.

Ronan ducked and grinned savagely; Adam knew what he was going to say before he even said it. “I already am.”

“Holy hell.” Declan growled while Adam rolled his eyes. He made to walk forward, to grab Ronan, and Adam moved without thinking. Adam knew in the back of his mind that Declan would not hit Ronan, they would not start a real fight, not over something like this. There were just some things that Adam could not control, and this was one of them–Ronan was the same. At a sign of trouble, they gravitated towards each other. 

Keep reading
