heart-players

You knew how I felt. You knew I loved you and you took advantage of that. You toyed with my heart and you left. And even though I’m here gathering pieces of my broken heart, it’s you who’s lost. You didn’t play me, you played yourself. You walked away from someone who would have left everything behind for you.

but remember from here on in
history has its eyes on you

A good way to relax is listening to calming music with someone special~

We had to do both of these because we couldn’t resist. So here you go!

This was suppose to be a doodle but it turned into a little more than that. I got carried away with the background, if you couldn’t tell. Though, I really like how this picture turned out. It’s better than I expected it to be and is now the wallpaper on my computer. 

Tori’s got a fancy house above ground. Damn. I want it.

When it’s over I just want to be able to look in the mirror and say, ‘Well, you were a half-decent player.’

  • Raphael Santiago is not just your pure and precious cinnamon bun. 
    • He does not revolve around Simon Lewis. 
      • He is a full grown vampire with a full time job juggling multiple dangerous factions in an attempt to preserve his clan and his own power
      • He is extremely intelligent and ambitious. 
      • He has a short temper. 
      • Sometime he can be a bit of a jerk
    • He’s not a villain, but he’s not a precious innocent puppy who has done no wrong either. Stop infantalizing him. 
    • Contrary to popular belief, he did not take Simon in purely out of the goodness of his heart. Keeping Simon around allowed him to keep power out of Camille’s hands. 
    • Simon was well aware of this. They might have liked each other, but they both had multiple motives for sticking around and they were both manipulating each other. 
  • That’s the entire point of 1x13 scene. Everyone is wrong. Simon is putting the clan in danger by releasing Camille, but Raphael is putting the world in danger by not allowing them to talk to her. Clary and Isabelle are far too blase with vampire lives because they’re thinking too big picture, Raphael is thinking more short term and doesn’t recognize the threat Valentine poses. 
  • Characters are flawed and their flaws play off of each other. No one makes the right choices all the time. 
  • Raphael isn’t an altruistic angel, he’s a person. A very smart, stubborn, somewhat selfish person. 
  • Please stop pretending he’s a darling romantic who swooped out of the night to save poor babby Simon. That’s ignoring so much of the snarky beauty that is Raphael Santiago, and simplifying a complicated and emotionally heavy ship.
