Alanna couldn’t fully bring herself to hate winter anymore. She couldn’t bring herself to like it either, but that’s a different thing entirely.
Winter was still a season of inactivity, a season of restlessness and irritability. It was still the season of breath taking cold, of weather that made her miserable. But now, it was also the season of home.
Winter was the season she was least called upon by her king, and subsequently when she spent the most time at the Swoop. It was the season George was the least busy as well. Winter meant long evenings in their study, laughing and talking in leisure. It meant knowing she would both go to sleep and wake up by his side for weeks at a time, something that was a luxury in sweeter weather. Winter was the only season that her children became used to her presence, enough that they would forget she was there and just be themselves. Most frozen nights she slept warmed by them, their hot little bodies pressed close to hers, keeping cold air at bay. Sometimes (ofttimes) she would lean over and bury her nose in each child’s hair, reveling in how perfect they smelled. She could look at George in those moments, and know he was thinking exactly the same.
Alanna was never quite certain whether she had made a truce with winter or it had made one with her, but either way, it had became a season that she couldn’t hate any more.
i am actually so pissed off right now. Matty said they aren’t bringing girls up for Robbers anymore because…..? fans get too vicious. not fucking cool. this “fandom” was supposed to be chill and love everyone. who fucking cares that Matty brought Saloni on stage and not you? let it fucking be. i’ve been waiting for SO long for Robbers & spent a ton of time making a sign for it and this fucking sucks because now it’s ruined. FOR EVERYONE. jealousy fucking ruined it. these fans are getting out of hand. first the hate to Saloni, and then the overly rowdy crowds. thats not what The 1975 is about. if you’re going to be awful to the people around you, GTFO.
