I almost screamed at this moment and let me tell you why.
My Chinese friend always tells me interesting facts about their history, language and culture. One of my favourite things is when she tells me something interesting about Chinese poetry or ancient idioms and phrases.
Once she told me a legend about Emperor and his beloved wife who went to visit her mother in her hometown. He was missing her so bad but loved her so much and wouldn’t dare to tell her to come back as soon as possible, so he sent her these lines: Flowers are blooming by the road. Enjoy them on your way back. (陌上花开，可缓缓归矣 - ni shang hua kai, ke huan huan gui yi).
So Xiao Nai basically says that he misses Wei Wei desperately.
I just can’t, my emotions because it’s so beautiful.
i thought about death last on a tuesday. i thought about how decay is supposed to smell sweet and i wondered what that meant for its taste. i have no intention to find out, though i know curiosity, like cat to mouse, has a way of digging her claws in.
i thought about life last night. not just the sunrise, or the stars. not just the way the world goes dizzy at the edges when you hold your breath, but the way that the air feels in the aftermath of a storm. particles lightning-charged with the same kind of life that lingers in the synapses of a brain at the edge of discovery.
this morning i thought about you. you. you are hard to fold into words. i find that your curves do not like the way sentences feel when i try to hold them up against you, to see if i caught your image within them. the comparison is as weak as i was when i saw you last tuesday, or when you smiled at me last night.
tonight? who knows. the thing is, i think these days i laugh more than i cry, but i still think about death. i haven’t looked at the stars in a while but i still see them, and i will always watch for storms. you do not complete me as i was a person before you, but i like that we could live alone. it means we choose not to.
this is a huge shoutout to my best friend, sarah. she puts up with me and my inability to reply to texts and she listens to everything i have to say and i’m really lucky that she’s in my life because i really don’t know what i’d do without her. i guess what is mean is that i really appreciate her and i don’t tell her nearly enough. @dahlix i’m bad at words but i love you so much and one day i’m going to hug you and never let go because you’re my best friend and you mean everything to me.
if you delete my caption, i’ll smite you in your sleep xxx
they’ve come so far, they just met at random by accident and then natsu took lucy’s hand and she joined the guild and found her true family and friends and he’d never really made a team before in all of his years in the guild but they decided to become one. and they grew closer and closer as time went by and they became best friends and looked out for one another and take care of each other
and then when he left she lost her shit and her heart broke and she looked for signs of him and all of her other lost friends but she couldn’t find him. but then he came back and yes, she was still hurt and mad but it was natsu and everything felt right with him beside her again
AND THEN things go sour and a war is coming and everyone’s sort of made peace that things might not work out this time and that this will be their last night of relaxation before chaos strikes and they decide to be together one last time, in lucy’s apartment, just like they used to, playing games and making jokes and enjoying each other’s company before their entire worlds sort of collapse
and things get worse and everything gets hard and people get hurt but its okay, because lucy’s got natsu and natsu’s got lucy and thats all they need
i appreciate the fact that when clay was pushing tony and yelling at him, instead of kicking clay’s ass into next week (bc we all know he can), tony just let clay release his anger like the fucking a n g e l friend that he is
