everything good in the world



I miss this so much I used to look so bloody bad ass!

What does your muse think of the human condition?

[That is a really loaded question for Richard. He’s grown up in a world where he sees the worst side to human nature. Greed, selfishness, the constant struggle for power. He constantly sees people cause suffering for others, act with complete disregard for anyone if it will bring them a little bit closer to their goal. Money and status are what matter most not the wellbeing of people around them. Even at the age of 12 he was already used to being used for his crown, doesn’t expect anyone to genuinely care about him.

But then he meets Asbel and Sophie and everyone in Lhant and they challenge that. They prove to him that there are people in the world who are inherently good, who cared about him not out of desire for power or some reward but simply because they wanted to be friends, and ultimately the next seven years of his life is an internal war between the world he’s embroiled in and the kindness he knows his friends to possess. Ultimately his belief in goodness loses, he surrenders to the fact that humans are by nature cruel and selfish and sets out to destroy all of them and put an end to the endless cycle of suffering. But even then the small part of him that believed in goodness never wholly vanished. As he says to Asbel in the end. I knew somehow you would stop me. Even as we fought… I wanted you to save me. He wanted to believe in the good, but had been hurt too many times to be able to any longer, and it was Asbel and his friends that once again proved that humans can be kind and selfless and good.

After everything, Richard is working on trying to see the good in people. It’s not an easy shift for him. Back at the castle he’s embroiled in the same political games he faced growing up, the same world where people can be greedy and cruel and selfish, but he’s also determined to see the good in people, to remember how his friends came together to help him, to see how Cheria and her relief network work selflessly to help others, how the knights risk their safety to protect the highroads from his monsters. He is still faced with the bad, and some days its hard for him not to go back to his old way of thinking, but he makes a very conscious effort not to be blinded to the fact that people are also innately good as well.]

My love for Liam Payne cannot be described with words that exist. He is everything good in the world. He is light, joy, peace. He is HOPE.

What happened on September 28, 2013?

(I’ve posted this before but…) on September 28, 2013 my whole life changed for the better. at 10:02pm, I got a message from the most amazing girl I had yet to know, my girlfriend Megan. we knew of each other, but we had never talked or been friends, when she spontaneously messaged me one night and we instantly hit it off. it was the silliest, most wonderful conversation (I STILL HAVE IT, AND WILL BE DISPLAYING IT ON PROJECTORS AT OUR WEDDING) and we decided that we had to hangout and see where it was all going. it went perfectly and she’s luckily been mine ever since ♡

09 28 13 really changed me. Pre-Megan and post-Megan. Pre-Megan I was a truly sad, incredibly anxious, closed off person who didn’t think much about others or the future. Post-Megan, I will do anything and everything I can to make sure that this world is a good enough place for my baby. She’s taught me to be kinder, trust people, laugh more, and take care of myself. She’s changed me, and she’s done it in the best way possible

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
