We’re always waiting for our lives to begin, figuring we’ll be someone else someday. But what are we waiting for? All we have is now.

If you’re always looking for reasons not to be with somebody, then you’ll always find them. At some point, you should let go and give your heart what it deserves.

[2/8] quotes: “You ever heard the expression: ‘The best things in live are free’? Well, that expression is true. Every once in a while, people step up; they rise above themselves. Sometimes they surprise you and sometimes they fall short. Life is funny sometimes. It can push pretty hard, but if you look close enough, you can find hope in the words of children, in the bars of the song and in the eyes of someone you love. And if you’re lucky, if you’re the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love decides to love you back.”

Stranger things Hogwarts au

I saw @eradne​ mentioning she would like to see some hp au for these kids, and well i cant write, but i was thinking about this anyway, so ive come up with few headcanons and my opinions on which houses these kids could be in.

Will Byers – Hufflepuff, tbh hes so very brave the hat wanted to put him in gryffindor but let him choose, and from what Will heard about the houses he liked the idea of Hufflepuff best, that he would be more comfortable there. The kids are the nicest there, and he likes spending his time in the common room drawing all the new creatures and plants he learns about in classes.

Mike Wheeler – Slytherin, (in this verse there is no prejudice against them, that all slytherins are evil, and i hate jk she didnt have guts to fix that to this day anyway) I just really love the idea of cunning Mike, (in the series for example when he lets a strange girl live in a basement without tellling his parents? Maybe that, or how he talks back to some people etc), but hes very caring for his friends.

And i also need to mention, with byeler… i love the slytherin/hufflepuff relationships, so i had to put this here, like this:

some bully: *looks at will*

will preparing to fight: wanna go?

mike behind will motioning finger across neck: dont you dare

Dustin and Lucas are in Ravenclaw, theyre both smart, although both in different ways, dustin is the creative, cant stay in one place, curious smart, and lucas is the realistic but ‘your idea is crazy but it also makes sense, but i should go with you or something bad will happen‘ smart. (but theyre both dumb when it comes to realize they both like each other.) Idk i want them both in ravenclaw, also theyre both nerds, but thats all of them.

Max and Eleven are in gryffindor, these two bravest girls, who later become girlfriends bc theyre all the time around each other and are fascinated by ther other. Max is on the quidditch team as seeker, and shes the best, she later even got a nickname ‘zoomer’ and el cheers on her from the stands. El is the best at defence against the dark arts magic. Like shes so powerful, even tho she was born to muggle parents, but was always curious, so now in Hogwarts she likes to read ahead and try new tricks with magic.

One more thing for byeler.

They meet on the train, when Mike didnt know where to go sit, and he found Will sitting alone in a carriage, and the boy looked sad to leave his home and family for one year (although his brother is there too, but hes with the kids his own age). So Mike opens the door of the carriage, and asks if he could join Will, and til today Mike tells the story, how it was the best thing hes ever done and how happy he was when Will said yes and soon they became inseparable friends.

Some time later the carriage opened again and Will and Mike made two otehr friends, Dustin and Lucas, and after that El and Max joined too, and they all found out they love playing d&d (maybe some magic version of it) and they all became friends!

The end

Suddenly it was as if the roar of the crowd, the echo of the final buzzers, the cheers of my teammates were all sounding from 1,000 miles away, and what remained in that bizarre, muffled silence was only Peyton. The girl whose art, passion, and beauty had changed my life. In that moment, my triumph was not a state championship, but simple clarity. The realization that we had always been meant for each other and every instinct to the contrary had simply been a denial of the following truth - I was now and would always be in love with Peyton Sawyer.

The boy saw the comet and he felt as though his life had meaning. And when it went away, he waited his entire life for it to come back to him… It was more than just a comet because of what it brought to his life: direction, beauty, meaning. There are many who couldn’t understand, and sometimes he walked among them. But even in his darkest hours, he knew in his heart that someday it would return to him, and his world would be whole again… And his belief in God and love and art would be re-awakened in his heart.
