i sang in front of people today

While driving home I thought about this:

Lena and Kara had just exchanged vows and were now officially wed. As they arrived into the reception hall, Lena led Kara to a chair that was placed in the middle of the dance floor. She leaned closer to her wife to let her know that she had a surprise in store. Traditionally, Kara had always been the one to sing but today was different. Winn had walked over to both women to escort Lena up to the stage. They had been practicing for weeks now to perfect the song she had chosen. While Winn quickly tuned his guitar, Lena moved closer to the microphone. She had never sang in front of so many people, her heart was pounding in her chest. She cleared her throat before speaking, “This is for you..I love you…” Her eyes glanced around the room until she reached her wife’s gorgeous blue eyes, filling her with all the courage she would need to sing. The sounds of Winn’s guitar began to fill the room as Lena took a breath before singing.. “You look so wonderful in your dress, I love your hair like that. The way it falls on the side of your neck, down your shoulders and back…….. And should this be the last thing I see, I want you to know it’s enough for me, ‘cause all that you are is all that I’ll ever need……. The way it brings out the blue in your eyes, is the Tenerife sea…. You look so wonderful in your dress, I loved your hair like that. And in the moment I knew you.” (x)

Today was incredibly special. I made my runes in the shop today, practicing galdr in front of people for the first time. The high priestess of the store brought her daughter in to see me make them, and together the three of us sang the runes as I drew them on to the antler. It was so powerful having three females sing together, it made me feel like we were channeling the Norns, who gave Odin the knowledge of the runes. I had to keep this set for myself.

It's been a long day, without you my friend ~Omelia

Under normal circumstances, I would write a huge as f*ck Authors note, with the prompt and stuff, but that would spoil everything.

Don’t try to shoot me through your screen.


It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

The funeral was crowded. Many people had come. 
There were people Owen knew, and people he had never seen in his entire life. It didn’t matter. Nothing mattered anymore.
Callie usualy never sang in public, because she was terrified of standing in front of a big crowd. Today… She had liked it to make an exception.
Seated on the first row, his mind could recognise every word. His soul did not.

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

Torres had also been the one who had pulled Owen through the entire day. She had been the one who made sure he would not freak out, or get an PTSD attack, because she knew his triggers. She had also been the one who explained to people why he had not talked since it had happend.

@_amatsuki_ 今日ほんとうに嬉しかったし感動したのは、生だから後ろまで聞こえないといけないと思って、みんなの中に入って歌っていたんだけど、僕の周りの人たちが後ろの人に気を使って座ってくれたんです…!!


amatsuki: I was so happy today. I was singing without a mic or anything, so I sang in the center of the crowd. The people sitting in the very front sat down out of consideration for those in the back, and I was just so moved…!!

My singing got all emotional after seeing that…!!
