home is where you go to rest your bones

home is...
  • where your heart is set in stone:cancer, leo, scorpio, pisces
  • where you go when you're alone:taurus, gemini, libra, capricorn
  • where you go to rest your bones:aries, virgo, sagittarius, aquarius

maybe we need to stop. just stop. fucking chuck everything we’re holding down to the ground and close our eyes, because maybe we need to start listening to more than what the birds are screaming about. we need to start listening to the waves our thoughts are on. are they of a high frequency? is your mind dancing solo in a night club in the middle of a huge crowd who are clapping you on? are they of a low frequency? the same recurring thoughts where you’re face down on the ground trying to remember a time when fatigue didn’t rest inside your bones?

i don’t know.

i’m not very good at advice or at situations and my brain starts a motion and instead of going into overdrive and shouting resolutions at me, it turns around and goes the fuck home. but where is home? i thought home was in my head. i thought home was where my thoughts made contact with my blood and made everything become as dainty as fairy lights. i thought home was where i could dance solo and i didn’t need a crowd cheering me on. i thought home was where i didn’t have the need to chase you because you were already there. maybe i’ve got it all wrong. maybe i need to shut my eyes and listen to more than what the birds are screaming about. maybe i need to listen to the whispers of my brain which are rapidly turning into screams and the frequency is fucking up so hard my ear drums are going to burst. maybe i need to go home.

—  we’re spinning way too fast and my thoughts are falling out of my head

(they say home) is where you go to rest your bones (zayn/liam, niall/harry, eleanor/louis) (69k)

There’s a warmth in his chest that expands until he feels buoyant almost. Like he could potentially fly. What a fucking cliche.
“You okay?” Liam asks, sliding up behind him and pressing a kiss to the nape of his neck.
“Never been better,” he replies. “Why do you ask?”
“You’ve been staring into the cupboard for about three minutes, babe. I don’t think you’re going to find Narnia there, no matter how hard you look.”
Zayn snorts and turns so Liam’s bracketed by his legs. “You’re a dork.”
Liam shrugs. “You love it, though,” he answers easily and Zayn’s breath catches for a minute.
“Yeah, I do.”

Zayn’s managing just fine as a single father. Louis and Harry are a help, as much as they are terrors, but it’s Liam who brings him home.

With every small disaster

I’ll let the waters still

Take me away to some place real

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone

It’s where you go when you’re alone

It’s where you go to rest your bones

It’s not just where you lay your head

It’s not just where you make your bed

As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?

Home // Ashton Irwin

Requested; Yes


‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones…


“Are you leaving the band?”

“How are you guys doing tonight?”

“(Y/N) is it true that you’re pregnant?”

“Where ya’ll headin’ right now?”

Ashton simply smiled at the pestering paparazzi and pulled you closer to him, knowing it was best to just acknowledge them rather than give them what they wanted and pick a fight. Normally he’d remain unfazed from all the attention but tonight he was feeling on the edge. You had to admit so were you, your boyfriend of 4 years had just arrived from his long 6 month tour and the two of you were looking forward to having dinner with the family. You usually wouldn’t mind fans coming up to you and Ashton but today was his first day back home and your family had flown in to spend time with you and Ashton, the extra attention freaked them out a bit.

“Sorry about tonight (Y/N),” He sighed as soon as you got into the black SUV, “I wanted tonight to be special.” He laid his head on your shoulder as you ran your fingers through his soft hair. Luckily for you he decided to ditch the newspaper boy hat tonight.

“It was Ashton, I finally have my baby in my arms and everyone had fun.” You reassured him but he shook his head and look up at you with a childish pout.

“That’s not what-” Ashton sighed in frustration and leaned back into the seat, his tongue poking the inside of his cheek.

As long as we're together, does it matter where we go?"

“You’re leaving me already? You just got home.”

You were absolutely crushed to hear that Ashton would be leaving for a promotion tour for the upcoming album and even though it was only going to be for a few months you couldn’t stand the thought of having him ripped away from you again. You just got your baby back.

“I know I know it sucks but I won’t be gone for too long this time, love.” He sighed, rubbing your arm lovingly while you drew little doodles over his sweaty chest.

He’d just spent a good hour rehearsing for tonight’s show, something you were totally thrilled for but it didn’t change the fact that Ashton was still leaving. You couldn’t shake off the feeling of hurt either, usually he would ask you if you wanted to tag along. But maybe since this tour isn’t going to be as long he had no use for you there.

The Gentle Aftermath (If It Can Be Broken)

AN: A drabble that I wrote ages ago, after watching “Quiet Minds”. Spoilers for that episode. Kind of like a missing scene. Slight angst, monkey jokes, and a little symbolism, I think. I just wanted a small moment between them…

Home is where your heart is set in stone. It’s where you go when you’re alone, it’s where you go to rest your bones. — Home, Gabrielle Aplin

“You alright there, Swan?”

Gentle was never a perfect adjective to describe the dread pirate—he’s got a hook for a hand, for godssakes—but Emma Swan could have sworn there was just that, teeny tiny spot of soft in the way his question was whisked away by the light snow, she almost didn’t hear it.

It irks her more than she cares to admit.

Home by Gabrielle Aplin

I’m a phoenix in the water
A fish that’s learned to fly
And I’ve always been a daughter
But feathers are meant for the sky
And so I’m wishing, wishing further,
For the excitement to arrive
It’s just I’d rather be causing the chaos
Than laying at the sharp end of this knife

With every small disaster
I’ll let the waters still
Take me away to some place real

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home

So when I’m ready to be bolder,
And my cuts have healed with time
Comfort will rest on my shoulder
And I’ll bury my future behind
I’ll always keep you with me
You’ll be always on my mind
But there’s a shining in the shadows
I’ll never know unless I try

With every small disaster
I’ll let the waters still
Take me away to some place real

'Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
Home home home home home home home home

'Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?
