for every lonely heart

Q: “Is love all you need?”
George Harrison: “Yes. Absolutely.”

George’s interview for the documentary It Was 20 Years Ago Today was previously available on YouTube, although (unless it’s only due to regional restrictions) it doesn’t appear to be online anymore, unfortunately.

‘Get lost!’
‘You’re the one who asked me to do it in the first place! What is it? What are you saying I can’t do?!’

People will tell you it’s time to move on. They will tell you you’re better off now or there’s no need look back. They will tell you it’s time to go on with your life and find new things and new people to fill up your time. But the truth is, you can try to fill the empty spaces in our lives with other things, and make sure your schedule stays as busy as possible so you don’t have to think about things, but there is only one thing that will truly fill your heart completely: the love of Jesus. Yes, we should look ahead and yes, we should seek to keep on living after loss, but we cannot do it without Jesus. We can’t do it with Him filling that void.

There is no coincidence that God put us here on this earth with other people. We were meant to have community, family and relationships. There is nothing wrong with being blessed by who God has put in our lives. So therefore, when someone who used to be there everyday is no longer there, it hurts. And whether they passed away, moved away, or there’s now a physical or emotional distance between you and them, it is not strange to God that you feel the pain of that lost. He sees and knows about all of it and He loves you through it, which is why He sent Jesus to fill that void. He sent Jesus to fill every dark corner of your lonely heart without His marvelous light.

We must take comfort in this. It’s hard to lose what matters to us, no matter how big or small or how long ago it was. If you’ve ever lost a loved one, you know that it doesn’t matter how many years past, we still feel it that they aren’t here. That feeling is real. But Jesus’ love for you is also real, and it’s the only thing that fills every void that infiltrates the human heart.

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. -2 Thessalonians‬ ‭2:16-17‬

Some would call it dark; they view it with eyes unable to see the light shinning from each gem and nevermore silent forge.

Some would name the statues and many pillars decorated with royal emblems ostentatious; they do not recognise the obvious, that each hammer stroke was out of remembrance.

Some would call it lonely; they have never witnessed the loyalty which fills every dwarven heart, nor the passion with which they craft.

They are unable to understand those who call the mountain kingdom of Erebor home.

—  Bilbo Baggins on the lonely mountain of Erebor

i fall in love with every home i meet. my heart can’t sit still. like a lonely girl dreaming up love stories for a stranger on a train, i weave imaginary lives through unfamiliar streets

visions take me. here is where i would buy midnight groceries. the cashier would know my addiction to strawberry popsicles and strong ginger ale. here is where i would lose myself on a saturday afternoon. this is my apartment. it’s small, but i have enough room to grow herbs on the balcony: parsley, rosemary, and thyme. i would adopt a stray cat. 

here is where i would fall in love with life again. there are trees strong enough to climb and marigolds growing by the sidewalk–that’s how you know. my favorite cafe brews extra strong coffee. strangers learn my name and i try to remember theirs. 

these are the windows i would grow tired of walking by. here is where i would grow restless, dream of somewhere else. this is where i would say goodbye

all that is new is paradise

Funny Little World (Jughead x Reader)

 Alrighty then. Uhhhh. This is a sideblog, that’s why this is the very first post on it, lmao. Anyway, this whole thing was written in a sleep deprived state that I am still very much in, so any grammatical or spelling errors are 100% on me having been awake for over 24 hours right now. This is my first songfic, as well as my first Jughead fic, so,,,,,,fuck idk don’t take it too seriously? I guess? Enjoy??

Suddenly I’m famous,

And people know my name.

I’ve got a thousand girls just waiting,

Writing for the Blue and Gold was a much needed change of pace for me. This does not mean it was a welcomed change. My teachers, upon seeing what I could do with words when I was writing about something I cared about, seemingly all decided to grade me based on those newfound expectations instead of against the rubrics I had mastered. My grades, of course, dropped because of this, because I can’t bring myself to inject even an ounce of passion into five page papers on the Bill of Rights. There’s neither the interest nor the length necessary for me to put any sort of personal spin on the topic.

Another unexpected-and personally I believe unfair-change was that people knew my name. Not just the people I eat lunch with and the assholes on the football team, not just the Pop’s wait staff, not just the people my dad know south of the tracks. I’m talking about people who saw me every day the entire time I’ve been at Riverdale High, and never bothered to ask my name before my name was in the Blue and Gold under article titles about the Lost Golden Boy of Riverdale High-Jason Blossom.

And to be frank, most of the new people paying attention to me were girls. I asked Betty about why it was happening and she mumbled something about ‘girls liking a guy with issues’. So, in a way I supposed I’ve taken the late Blossom’s throne as the eye of every lonely high school girls dreams.

Searching for Alec

Lovely pensfan8714 prompted me to write a one-shot in which Alec gets captured and Magnus and the squad go looking for him. 

Thank you for the prompt, darling, sorry if this didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to :P

And sorry for giving you the feelz, guys. I’m just a sucker for angst.

As the full moon illuminated the streets, a dark figure could be seen standing on the edge of Magnus Bane’s roof.

Blue sparks dancing on his fingertips, Magnus set his jaw and looked up, not seeing the stars but rather the face of a certain blue-eyed shadowhunter.

While he was standing there, the memory from a few nights ago replayed in his mind – Alec, falling backwards into the void from this exact spot.

Once again sensing all the fear and pain caused by almost losing Alec, Magnus shivered.

No. He wouldn’t let that happen again.

Magnus recognized the stinging feeling in his eyes so he shut them to prevent the tears from escaping.

This wasn’t a time for crying.

Stretching his fingers, Magnus whispered a few words and formed a portal with one swift movement of his hand.

The Lone Wanderer & The Tunnel Snake

Okay, let’s talk about Azriel’s heart a little. I honestly believe that Azriel knew about Morrigan’s relationship with the mortal queen, c'mon, he is a spymaster, his work is know this type of things. I also think that he had known many of her relationships, both with men and women, and he just supposed it wasn’t serious, that it was an one night stand, just like Cassian’s, until he saw her with Andromache.

And I was thinking about it, in my way to college, when I remembered a song that fit perfectly. Let me share with you some (many) parts of it:

Feeling used
But I’m still missing you
And I can’t
See the end of this
Just wanna feel your kiss
Against my lips

And now all this time
Is passing by
But I still can’t seem to tell you why
It hurts me every time I see you
Realize how much I need you

I hate you, I love you
I hate that I love you
Don’t want to, but I can’t put
Nobody else above you

I hate you, I love you
I hate that I want you
You want her, you need her
And I’ll never be her

And there’s more:

Friends can break your heart too
And I’m always tired but never of you

And more:

You ever wonder what we could’ve been?
You said you wouldn’t and you fucking did
Lie to me, lie with me, get your fucking fix

[ … ]

Always missing people that I shouldn’t be missing
Sometimes you gotta burn some bridges just create some distance
I know that I control my thoughts and I should stop reminiscing
But I learned from my dad friends that it’s good to have feelings
When love and trust are gone
I guess this is moving on
Everyone I do right does me wrong
So every lonely night, I sing this song

And if your heart isn’t broken yet, here goes the major blow:

All alone I watch you watch her
Like she’s the only you’ve ever seen
You don’t care, you never did
You don’t give a damn about me
Yeah, all alone I watch you watch her
She’s the only thing you’ve ever seen
How is it you never notice
That you are slowly killing me?

I don’t know what it says about me but I can watch ‘Something Borrowed’ over and over and *over* and never tire of it. I mean in fact I constantly turn to it to cure moods, like any mood. I could be down and sad or and frustrated or jist kinda craving a lovey type movie and I can always pick this one and be totally fine with my choice.

I actively know it’s no ground breaking or like out of this world movie, but it just makes me feel all the things and deep down it just gives me this sense of contentment. At this point it might be possible that I have watched it even mkre times than I’ve seen 'Hairspray’ or 'Willy Winks and the Chocolate Factory’ and that’s damn impressive.
