I think I’ve actually built up something with an awful lot of people and to think that would be destroyed by the tabloids - I don’t think I could live with that thought because it would mean that I’d worked for something that was very weak and I think I’ve worked for something that’s a lot stronger than that.

the fantasy is simple. pleasure is good, and twice as much pleasure is better. that pain is bad, and no pain is better. but the reality is different. the reality is that pain is there to tell us something, and there’s only so much pleasure we can take without getting a stomach ache. and maybe that’s okay. maybe some fantasies are only supposed to live in our dreams.
And as I walk away, I’ll walk with a confidence that if we are meant to be, we will be. So until then if I see you down the road, please only be there if this almost thing is something of the past. Please only stop me, if you can love me the way I deserve.
I love you with all my heart. Sadly, though, loving someone with all your heart doesn’t mean the feelings will always be reciprocated.
And although it wasn’t a relationship, you were almost everything I needed.
Sparks flew through the air, chasing after Umbridge and filling everyone else in the Great Hall with glee.
Fred and George Weasley, my best friend and my boyfriend, had done it again.
Done it one last time. The twins were leaving in a few moments to start a joke shop, which was great and all, but they weren’t coming back.
Fred and George swooped over my head on their broomsticks and I bit back tears.
I couldn’t believe George was leaving me.
We made eye contact as he dodged another one of his fireworks. I guess he could tell how I felt because he flew down towards me and pulled me into a tight embrace.
“Y/n, I’m going to miss you so much,” George whispered into my ear.
I couldn’t speak without crying, so I just nodded in agreement.
He leaned down and kissed me hard on the mouth.
“You know, you can always come visit.”
I wiped my eyes. “It isn’t the same! George, I wish I was coming with you.”
He looked straight into my eyes and said, “Why didn’t you tell me that before? You could have.”
I blinked. I hadn’t told him before because I hadn’t thought that he would let me come.
“George, if I pack my things now will you wait for me?”
He nodded and said, “Be fast. Umbridge will be back before long.”
I skipped up the stairs to the Gryffindor common room, feeling happier than I had been since before Fred and George had told me that they were leaving.
“Without a doubt, they are each other’s future. They represent to each other the best hope for a happy ending, or as close to a happy ending as anyone in Westeros ever gets. Their affection for each other is honest, passionate and durable, likely to raise eyebrows among Westerosi society but still compliant with the rules of that culture.
In the short term, they have some harrowing times ahead. Whatever happens with Lady Stoneheart and her associates is likely to leave them further traumatized and exhausted when they had already been through quite enough of that. They will get out alive, though, with their bodies and minds intact. They’ll survive that encounter, and when they do, their bond will be stronger than ever.
I’ll go a step further and say that the way their relationship is foreshadowed also suggests that they’ll grow old together.
They are among the most likely characters to survive the series and live long, fulfilling lives. GRRMartin has told us he’s planning a “bittersweet” ending for the series, comparable to the conclusion of Lord of the Rings, and that sounds like quite a different turn of events from the doom-and-gloom resolution one may have anticipated. Jaime and Brienne’s life together will be among the sweeter endings to this frequently dark and bloody series; one of a handful of loving, lasting relationships. Their bond is one of the best things to come from the War of the Five Kings.”
