how can they even be in the same picture together

Long Distance Relationships

They are exhausting 
They are hard
You get used to being lonely
You’re used to only seeing their face through Skype
You get used to airport reunions and goodbyes
You’re used to dropping a ton of money just to see them for a few days
It’s easier to get frustrated with each other 
You end up hating the distance

But, you learn to appreciate the distance. I believe that all relationships who can get through long distance, are true and can face anything. You learn to appreciate the time you do get to spend together, you fall in love with the same pictures months apart. Trust is a necessity between the two people. You learn how to make choices and get through arguments together even being miles apart. While I have resented the distance that has pulled us apart for the last three years, I also know it has built the wonderful and strong relationship we have today. While, I’m excited to finally close the distance between us I know that a part of me will miss it. 

Request - Alpha Ethan (and Alpha Aiden) “A guy in love does crazy things”

Ethan stared at the picture on his screen. The tears jumped into his eyes, but he had to keep on staring to make sure he would figure out where you were. He swallowed. Your eyes looked blue, almost purple. There was a cloth in your mouth and he could only imagine how hard breathing must be right now. Your hands and feet were tied together with a blackish rope and Ethan could see that your skin was damaged, that you were bleeding.
“Ethan?” Aiden took the phone from his brother and stared at the same picture. They had been driving around for hours now, looking for something that could lead them to you. “Can you google that sign behind her?” Aiden gave his brother the phone back and Ethan nodded. It was hard to read what the sign was saying, it was almost impossible even, but he squeezed his eyes and tried to make the best of it.
“I don’t need to google this…” Ethan swallowed, his cheeks turing pink. He felt ashamed that he had not noticed it sooner, but he felt even more ashamed that he recognised it at all. “I’ve seen this sign before.” He clicked the picture away. He knew that he wasn’t able to click the real situation away, but without having to stare at the picture his mind was clearer, capable of acting instead of feeling.
“Where?” Aiden shook his head and stared at him.
“This is her ex-boyfriend’s bedroom.” He bent his head and scratched the back of his neck. It had been a couple of months ago since he had seen it, right before you had broken up with that guy. He had sneaked into his house. It had been a stupid idea, an idea of a fool, but when he had walked by he had not been able to fight it. He had just had to look around, had had to see his room, had had to know what kind of guy you were actually liking.
“Ethan?” His brother placed a hand on his shoulder. “Let’s go.” Aiden whispered and Ethan nodded. He knew that with every second that passed, every next minute it took them to find you, you would be in more pain than you were already in. He tried not to think about it too much. He tried to focus on the road, the traffic. He tried to focus on not panicking, but as soon as they parked their motorcycles in front of the house he lost all the control he had had left.
The door was nothing more than an obstacle and without waiting for his brother Ethan stormed in. He didn’t care of your ex boyfriend was having a gun, all he cared about was you.
He felt his eyes burning. They were without a doubt a bright red and as soon as they located the jerk, his fists broke his jaw and who knew what other bones. Everything passed by in a blur. He wasn’t sure if the guy had survived. He hoped not. But while he walked through the house, climbing the stairs all he could think about was you.
“Ethan?” You tried to say his name when he stormed into the room. It was nothing more than a not understandable sound, but Ethan stormed towards you. He removed the ropes and the cloth as quickly as he could and he placed his hands on your cheeks while the tears rolled down.
“(Y/N)….” He tried to speak, but he couldn’t find words. Instead he finally did what he had wanted to do for months now. He pressed his lips on yours and he wrapped his arms around your body. “You’re safe now.” He eventually said, noticing that you had not tried to push him away, noticing that you had even kissed him back. “And I love you.”

MalecWeek Day 1:

TMI: City of Fallen Angels
p.414-415

“But Alexander-”

“Stop calling me that,” said Alec. “Alexander is what my parents call me. And I  suppose it’s very advance of you to have accepted my mortality so fatalistically- everything dies, blah blah - but how do you think that makes me feel? Ordinary couples can hope- hope to grow old together, hope to live long lives and die at the same time, but we can’t hope for that. I don’t even know what it is you want. 

Alec wasn’t sure what he’d expected in response - anger or defensiveness or even humor- but Magnu’s voice only dropped, cracking slightly when he said, “Alex - Alec. If I gave you the impression I had accepted the idea of your death I can only apologize. I tried to, I thought I had and yet stilll I pictured having you for fifty, sixty more years. I thought I might be ready then to let you go. But it’s you, and I realize now that I won’t be any more ready to lose you then than I am right now.” He put his hands gently to either side of Alec’s face.”Which is not at all.” 

“So what do we do?” Alec whispered.

Magnus shrugged, and smiles suddenly; with his messy black hair and the gleam in his gold-green eyes, he looked like a mischiveous teenager. “What everyone does,” he replied “like you said. Hope.”

Hi. I’d like to tell you my story of Yennefer so far.

I’ve not read the books and I’m still not finished with the game completely. I’m currently on “Final Preparations”, but I’ve seen enough to put my 2 cents in.

Since the first meeting with Yennefer, I felt repulsed. I didn’t like her bossy and comanding attitude. The lack of explanations of current events and a not even a mere “How are you holding up?” burnt a picture in my head. At the same time, it was revealed that Yennefer was Geralt’s first love and that he swore to love her (I can’t remember the exact phrase).
What I understood from it, was that they belong together. Geralt lost his memory, banged Triss, regained his memory sometime. What I didn’t quite understood, was if Geralt and Yen were still a thing at the point of the reunion or not. I did not could not ask any further questions and got shoved out the door.
So I thought to myself that I gotta stay true to my “beloved” who I actually detested.
As I met Triss later in the game, she was like a sweet darling to me. The cute girl who everyone had a crush on.
At the night during the banquet, where I had the chance to kiss her. At first I denied the kiss, still thinking about staying true to Yen.
I continued the game a few hours in, but I always had the thought of Triss. I actually sat down for an hour and thought about this (knowing that Geralt would’ve wasted a thought or two on the issue as well). Why should I end up with a (in my eyes) “pretty bitch”, when I can spend my time with a lovely redhead?
I reloaded an earlier save and kissed Triss. At that point I felt like a new man. I was actually in love.
All went well until the mages had to leave Novigrad. I brought Triss to the pier and not knowing that it was a crucial moment in the romance, I let her sail off. I though I’d see her again and I wasn’t ready to say that I love her either since I’ve seen her very rarely (although I know that she was interested).

As I reached Skellige and did the main quest with the wolf in the garden, I first got a glance of her “inner beauty”. Although it was short, I understood that Yen cared for me. Deeply.
She was up to joking about the wolf puns and the new DLC look, changed my view on her completely. I saw that there was pain inside her and I knew that a sorceress hasn’t many people she can call close friends. Especially one that acts cold and bossy.
(Side Note: I’m not that kind of person who falls in love with someone just because they have issues they need fixed and I’m the knight in shining armour. I just knew that Yen is weak on the inside when it comes to feelings. She manages well to hide feelings and jest about it when things get serious. These kinds of people have experienced pain before and it’s only natural to be cautious so it doesn’t happen again)
Additionally, I really like her name. It has something mysterious and graceful about it. I just like saying it out loud. I don’t know why
I thought about giving her a chance and proceeded with the main story. I don’t want to get into every detail, but Yen shows bits and pieces of affection towards Geralt with every meeting. At one point I got really pissed when Cerys an Craite said that Yen controls me and my actions. No. I do the things because I agree with her. She might be bossy, but she is smart and plans carefully. I don’t just agree with her, I trust her. Otherwise, I wouldn’t give a shite about what she has to say.

When the romance quest with Yen arose, I went in without knowing what is about gonna happen. A lot of things cleared up when she explained the spell that will keep them together. She decided to remove the spell and I joined in, curious on what’s going to happen and less about my feelings. When the spell was lifted, Geralt said he didn’t feel any change, but I felt a change as I reflected what I experienced with Yen. At that point I realized, she was the right one and went in for the kiss.

To put everything in a nutshell: Yen is a great character with all her imperfections. Her thoughts, background and love is deep, but so is her suffering.
I want to say, that Yen is my type of girl. Clever witty and has a hillarious humor. CDPR had done an outstanding job on giving these characters life, but it is kinda sad that you can’t have more time with both until you must decide (It probably didn’t quite fit into the story).
I do not regret sending Triss away now.

Sorry if this post smells of lilac and gooseberries. I just can’t get rid of the smell
