face of innocence

anonymous asked:

i'm so glad you read ari and dante 😭😭 it's such a SPECIAL book. and i love so many lines in it. Especially this one: “I was harder than Dante. I think I’d tried to hide that hardness from him because I’d wanted him to like me. But now he knew. That I was hard. And maybe that was okay. Maybe he could like the fact that I was hard just as I liked the fact that he wasn’t hard." Their dynamic 😩😩 Just everything about this book felt so raw and real. I need the sequel tbh😭😭😭😭

Loved how you can feel Ari growing up throughout the book, how his loneliness becomes more and more pronounced and you can feel him going from a boy to a man. I loved how his vocabulary expanded and how his voice was so distinctly his. I loved how we all fell in love with Dante through his eyes, watched him call him beautiful and talk about his perfect face with absolute objectivity and innocence. I loved how his repressed feelings were so beautifully brought out, how he even had ME worried that he didn’t love Dante like I fell in love with Dante.

I have many lines highlighted in my copy of the book. I loved this.

“Dante is the first friend I’ve ever had. That scares me.”
“I think that if Dante really knew me, he wouldn’t like me.”



Oh Kageyama…

🍒 Cosmic Clock

Aries: The body gets old but the spirit stays young. They can forget their age and keep up the quick pace right until the end of life, wearing out their bones and their bodies, but the fresh, youthful spring time light never leaves their eyes

Taurus: A life lived in honour of beauty creates a beautiful spirit. It’s like they were born old souls, talking to the birds and blooming bouquets as a child, the nature makes you feel like they have done this before

Gemini: The twins keep swapping bodies and minds so it takes double the time to age, the face and spirit retains its fresh, young radiance until the end of life they can be baby faced with mischievous innocence  

Cancer: You can see by the lines across their forehead and cheeks how many times the moon has kissed their face. They don’t feel their age, they feel much older 

Leo: The Leo longs for immortal youth and delights in time around their children and little ones so they feel young again. The fountain of youth flows out of their presence like golden rays. They can always feel like the big kid  

Virgo: The fresh faced, spritely fairy makes their eyes dart like a mesmerised child, retaining their Mercury youth, but their age shows through their worry lines and hands

Libra: The beauty blossoms with age as all the faces they have worn thread together and create the image of all things they experienced as beautiful in their lives

Scorpio: The body takes a large portion of early life to grow into its ancient soul, you can see centuries in their eyes, you can count the lines on their bodies on how many times they have died

Sagittarius: The child’s laughter never stops flowing forth, when they smile their eyes smile too and turn into suns displaying of the wisdom of youth. Sagittarians don’t recognise the old person staring back at them in the mirror

Capricorn: The body gets older but they grow younger, winding the clock backwards and experiencing the spirit, freedom, and innocence of childhood that they were too old for 

Aquarius: They have an unusual relationship with their physical bodies and it can age with unusual experiences, when they spent those years experimenting, pushing their bodies into extreme regimes like spiritual fasts, when they spent those years being unable to sleep, it wears down the body that doesn’t feel like theirs

Pisces: The spirit of the old soul radiates through their auric field, so even as children they have a look of wise contemplation and inner knowing. Pisces don’t feel their age, they feel much older
