funeral love

funeral-prosecutor  asked:

I just got back from Japan and while i was there I visited a garden in Hiroshima and like,,, tons of birds flocked onto me for some reason (maybe they thought i had food??? Idk) and i immediately thought of simon with nahyuta just watching on and laughing lmao

hdskfjdsh THIS IS AMAZING and listen Simon would love this also.

(also I am very jealous of you ngl)

So he decides to travel with Nahyuta to Japan, which was where his mother was born before she moved the U.K. and met his father.  He hadn’t gone back since before he was incarcerated, and so asked Nahyuta if he wanted to accompany him.  The question was barely out of his mouth when Nahyuta agreed, eager to see one of the lands where Simon’s family hailed from.  

On the third day they visit Hiroshima, and Simon walks around the city, enthusiastically pointing to and explaining everything that he remembered from when his mother would take him as a child.  Regardless that it was so long ago, he recalls everything so clearly; he could almost visualize his mother’s sweetly laughing face whenever he started explaining things in greater detail than he was supposed to. 

They wander around, even holding hands after Simon grabbed Nahyuta’s to drag him to something particularly exciting.  He didn’t let go, and Nahyuta felt no need to relinquish the hold either.  It felt nice. 

As they walked through one of the gardens, Simon was trying to teach Nahyuta some Japanese phrases; since Simon was fluent, he did all the communicating, and Nahyuta wished he had a better grasp on the language.  

Simon finally let go to rush ahead of Nahyuta, wanting to sort of act out one of the phrases when…a bird landed on his shoulder.  He didn’t seem that startled - perhaps because he was always so used to Taka doing that - and smiled at the winged animal warmly before adding a sweet greeting.  He turned back to Nahyuta and was about to continue when…another bird landed on his opposite shoulder. 

And then another on his head.  And one more on each of his shoulders, causing the first ones to scoot over.  

And when they couldn’t find a perch on his body anymore, the birds were landing on the ground next to him and walking as close to him as possible, chirping or squawking up to him. 

Nahyuta was laughing, of course, but…it was also endearing.  Because Simon was smiling and kept greeting each individual bird as they came to him, talking with them as if they were humans. 

It was, for the lack of a better word, adorable. 

Nahyuta took pictures. 

Does anyone else just kinda want to kill themselves just to see who would actually care? But then you remember if you did that, you’d hurt the few who actually care. So your like… Nah I’ll wait.

Don’t worry. No one’s going under the ship today. Though, the thought had crossed my mind. No, I’m quite certain I can do better than that.

Remember when we were all so ecstatic just with the wedding kiss, and then we got all our 2A kisses?

And now we have 2B kisses on the way?

And NOW, another 20 episodes of potential kisses between Magnus and Alec? I don’t know if my heart can take it, I’m reserving my funeral plot now.

“Don’t you get it?” he finally screamed in anger at the whispers of the room…“Her life was a living funeral that she attended alone every single day. No one ever bothered to show up then, yet for some reason we all think we have a right to be here now.”

Queen Maxima, King Willem Alexander and Princess Beatrix attend the funeral of Prince Richard of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, the late husband of Princess Benedikte of Denmark, at the Evangelische Stadtkirche on March 21st, 2017 in Bad Berleburg, Germany.

Prince Richard was close friends with Princess Beatrix’s late husband, Prince Claus. Princess Beatrix met her future husband (for the second time) at the wedding of Richard’s sister, Princess Tatiana in the summer of 1964. When Prince Claus was dating Beatrix, Prince Richard helped to deceive the press and “acted” as Beatrix’s love interest. Beatrix married Claus two years later in 1966.

IN LOVING REMEMBRANCE of Ester J Burley- Died Feb. 22, 1929- Aged 75 Years.- GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

“I ofttimes wish that I was dead

and laid beside her in the tomb

The sorrow that bowes down my head

Is silent in the midnight gloom

The spring time has no charm for me

Though flowers are blooming in the dell

That dearest form I cannot see

It is the form of my sweet Ester Jane.

While the birds was singing in the morning

And the myrtle and the Ivey were in bloom

and the sun on the hilltops was dawning

It was then we laid her in the tomb.

~Your One Best Friend”
