i might do this with another horse

I figured out why Better Man is so heartwrenching. Like, aside from all the obvious implications that it made about the relationship and what it did to her, Better Man is heartwrenching for the same reason that Sad Beautiful Tragic and The Moment I Knew is.

Because most sad Taylor songs at least have that line, that one moment where she points out the silver lining. For Dear John it was the bridge. White Horse had ‘I’ll find someone someday who might actually treat me well’. Most of her sad songs has that moment.

But Sad Beautiful Tragic didn’t. SBT is just ‘it ended and there’s nothing i can do about it’. The Moment I Knew was ‘i had so much hope but i was miserable on what should’ve been a happy day’

Better Man is another step forward. Because yeah, she ran and she knew it was the right thing to do and the listeners knew it was the right thing to do, but even that ‘silver lining’ had the tone of ‘it shouldn’t have gotten to this I tried so hard all you had to do was meet me halfway and i loved you so much that i still miss you but now im so brokenhearted and it shouldn’t have come to this it shouldn’t have come to this it shouldn’t have come to this

SBT and TMIK is heartwrenching because there’s no silver-lining. Better Man is heartwrenching because there was barely a silver-lining, but it was still more painful than it was comforting.

Busy and Stuff

Okay guys, so here’s a LIFE UPDATE! 

I now have another job, which means I have two jobs and school, PLUS all the stuff I have to do at home (horses and what not) which means I’m gonna be SUPER BUSY for the next few months. Probably until I leave for South Korea at the end of February. I’ma try and keep up on writing, but it’s gonna be slower than usual. I still WANT to get SF done before season 2 of Miraculous, but a lot of that work might not come until March when I only have classes to worry about (being in another country neither here nor there). 

Just wanted to keep ya’ll updated ;D Thanks, guys!

Three De Rolos in a Row

Ship kinda: Perc’ahlia

**Description: **When Syldor visits Whitestone, the three De Rolo children come out to play.

**Alternate Title: **Was meant to be about annoying Syldor, but turned into a mini daring adventure from the oldest.

And yes, i gave them names. 

This is mostly based on @cinderfell ‘s headcanons about the Perc’ahlia children, and partly me getting way too carried away with everything.

When last she had seen Maidenpool, the town had been a desolation, its lord shut up inside his castle, its smallfolk dead or fled or hiding. She remembered burned houses and empty streets, smashed and broken gates. Feral dogs had skulked along behind their horses, whilst swollen corpses floated like huge pale water lilies atop the spring-fed pool that gave the town its name. Jaime sang “Six Maids in a Pool,” and laughed when I begged him to be quiet. And Randyll Tarly was at Maidenpool as well, another reason for her to avoid the town. She might do better to take ship for Gulltown or White Harbor. - Brienne II, AFfC 

(tldr ‘oh look, a pool. jaime sang a song about a pool once.’)

CS Stable AU
Killian Jones, the owner of Jolly Roger Stables, teaches horse back riding as a way to fund it’s upkeep. When Emma Swan starts bringing her son Henry for lessons, he couldn’t help but notice that the single mother seemed skittish around the animals. Henry’s noticed too and after asking his instructor what to do about it, Killian elects to introduce her to Cinnamon, (and himself) with the nosey help of his own mare Hot Cocoa, who might have just been looking for oats.

For oncepromised who’s actual CSSV gift is still in the works (SORRY!) so I did another mini sketch because horse AUs!

You’re just going to keep getting sketches for every week it’s late ^_^;

Solavellan Master Post

Lethallan- Aili-awkward-nerd struggles with the realization that her feelings for the Inquisition’s Fade expert might not be strictly platonic. SFW

The Shepherd Lost- Haven burns. Aili freezes. Solas worries more than he should. SFW

Aneth ara- Hovering along the edges of ‘almost’ and ‘nearly’, Solas and Aili slowly but surely continue to fall in love.

Between the Lines- Aili is an awkward nerd trying to woo a less awkward nerd. She might not have copper marigolds, but she makes do. It’s a nice night for an evening… SFW

World Enough and Time- The end I was actually expecting for the Solas romance until I remembered that BioWare never lets us have nice things. SFW
