glory of choice

If Power ends up being mistreated like Lightning was in the Get Weird era, and the girls don’t make it a single….then I’m sorry but Little Mix and I are going to have major issues. They can’t not make Power a single, forget about Touch and Oops they’re far better songs that are single worthy…I pray the girls choose wisely. 

Orb

your disgrace is on me smudged
as sin where a smile once was
eyes that will not see won’t see me

your hands imprint my life story on
all that you touch—the soles of your
well dressed feet walk over all
you wish to forget

eyes that negate sight and glory do
by choice I am a living testament burning
till extinction exasperates the retinas of
your eyes

an addition, @ir-anuk​ that didn’t quite feel like it fit the ask. More of an opposite, what I sometimes imagine Saladin thinks of her.

What I know is in the version of the universe where Eyahn was the Guardian that showed up to the gates of the Iron Temple, she had a Gjallarhorn across her back, poured it’s payloads into Sepiks, and was holding it in her arms when Saladin arrived. He’d know what it means, Saladin was around then -I believe a card says he was called to lead the defense of the walls during the Gap. I sort of personally rationalize the point of the year three Gjallarhorn questline as Saladin giving you his Gjallarhorn, passing it on to the new generation of legends. Puts my gun-loving mind at ease.

He might not have known she had one, she never used it in the Crucible, and until the Splicer threat all he’d seen of her is another champion in the Iron Banner, another ruthless Hunter, unsettlingly young.

So I imagine that meeting -in person, in the field- would have had an air of a meeting of veterans. She was little as ever, but had more experience than he’d first thought. A good choice to head the return of the Iron Lords.

Okay, but, the real question is - why does no one in Skyhold use or even comment on the library in the underbelly? Seriously, it’s such a hidden gem, and I can think of so many characters who would love to spend time there.

distance; a poem to Hermes

glory to Hermes
son of Zeus
patron of thieves
lover of lies
hidden in shadow and
swift upon the wind

my home
so far from me
lost, soon, for ageless days
please sway the minds
of that which keeps us
apart

glory to Hermes
your choice is your choice
should you guide us
I thank you
should you leave us
I thank you
beloved be, son of Zeus
glory to Hermes

patron of thieves
lover of lies
hidden in shadow and
swift upon the wind
I love you
Thank You

To the man who shot my people. You are not brave. You are not revolutionary. To any sympathisers out there, shooting people in the back is not brave. Dying in a hail of gunfire to avoid seeing the damage inflicted to countless families is not brave. Standing firm in who you love is brave. Staying alive purely on the thinnest hope it might get better is brave. Refusing to give up who you are after beatings and mocking and hate is brave. You are not brave. But I am. My community is hundreds of thousands who have endured and fought every day of our lives. You are not brave. But we are. You will not change who we are, and you will be remembered as a disgusting footnote of an embarrassment to humanity while we who marched hold nothing but glory. You are weak through choice, and we are all brave through necessity. And the brave will always be remembered.

Timshel

Lee’s hand shook as he filled the delicate cups. He drank his down in one gulp. “Don’t you see?” he cried. “The American Standard translation orders man to triumph over sin, and you can call sin ignorance. The King James translation makes a promise in ‘Thou shalt,’ meaning that men will surely triumph over sin. But the Hebrew word, the word timshel–'Thou mayest’–that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if 'Thou mayest’–it is also true that 'Thou mayest not.’ Don’t you see?”

“Yes, I see. I do see. But you do not believe this is divine law. Why do you feel its importance?”

“Ah!” said Lee. “I’ve wanted to tell you this for a long time. I even anticipated your questions and am well prepared. Any writing which has influenced the thinking and the lives on innumerable people is important. Now, there are many millions in their sects and churches who feel the order. 'Do thou,’ and throw their weight into obedience. And there are millions more who feel predestination in 'Thou shalt.’ Nothing they may do can interfere with what will be. But 'Thou mayest’! Why, that makes a man great, that gives him stature with the gods, for in his weakness and his filth and his murder of his brother he still has the great choice. He can choose his course and fight it through and win.” Lee’s voice was a chant of triumph. 

Adam said, “Do you believe that, Lee?”

“Yes, I do. Yes, I do. It is easy out of laziness, out of weakness, to throw oneself into the lap of diety, saying, 'I couldn’t help it; the way was set.’ But think of the glory of choice! That makes a man a man. A cat has no choice, a bee must make honey. There’s no godliness there. And do you know, those old gentlemen who were sliding gently down to death are too interested to die now?”

Adam said, “Do you mean these Chinese men believe the Old Testament?”

Lee said, “These old men believe a true story, and they know a true story when they hear it. They are critics of truth. They know that these sixteen verses are a history of humankind in any age or culture or race. They do not believe a man writes fifteen and three-quarter verses of truth and tells a lie with one verb. Confucius tells men how they should live to have good and successful lives. But this–this is a ladder to climb to the stars.” Lee’s eyes shone. “You can never lose that. It cuts the feet from under weakness and cowardliness and laziness.”

Adam said, “I don’t see how you could cook and raise the boys and take care of me and still do all this.”

“Neither do I,” said Lee. “But I take my two pipes in the afternoon, no more and no less, like the elders. And I feel that I am a man. And I feel that a man is a very important thing–maybe more important than a star. This is not theology. I have no bent towards gods. But I have a new love for that glittering instrument, the human soul. It is a lovely and unique thing in the universe. It is always attacked and never destroyed–because 'Thou mayest’.”
