The rage was on hold as the puzzle finally clicked into place, and the box opened. Jace quickly grabbed Simon, pulling him out, and to the floor, holding the other man against his own, almost hot to the touch chest, a deep bass growl rumbling there. “I’ve got you.” The anger was just below the surface, but now he had Simon to look after, his fury at having someone he loved taken from him - someone who was his, titles notwithstanding - could wait.

so willow smith made a song about marceline????

I can’t live another life Spend another time I can’t spit another rhyme on Gaia Guns and wars won’t stop the fights Not inside your mind Love and communion, there’s nothing better Cheeks get redder There’s nothing better Even in rough weather It’s raining knives, like all the time And I’m alive, irayo eywa, we’re alive Marceline, I’m coming to get you, girl We’re flying so high, catch a ride on Lady Unicorn Marceline, I know you’re not real in this dimension, I mean What’s up with your dad up in the nightosphere Your tears, they’re cleansing all my spheres You touch my hair, I’m playing on your bass But we don’t care, we’re messing up your space You got nowhere to live, but you’ll go back to space Huh… take me with you I’m sick of mildew I’m sick of all of these humans telling me what to do They make you stupid, but we are from Nibiru Remember your cosmic roots Marceline, I’m coming to get you, girl We’re flying Let’s catch a ride on Lady Unicorn Marceline, Marceline Marceline, you’re breathing in gasoline I wish I could sleep It looks so peaceful When i’m watching you At night I can see She’s beatin’, believin I’m grievin’, not many reasons So many seasons, oh Will you stay with me Until the earth runs dry We’ll tear it up, we’ll tear it up Ice in our veins Love in our still hearts I’m not playin’ games And i’m not tryin’ to go offIce in our veins Love in our still hearts We’re just playin’ games And i’m not gonna go on But why not Just the thought I don’t want to sit here In my doom all day I won’t stay, no Stay, Stay, no Ice in our veins Love in our still hearts I’m just playin’ games And i’m not gonna go offIce in our veins Love in our still hearts We’re just playin’ games And i’m not gonna go on Tonight, it’s your fault that I’m this way I go through all that pain Just to be alone at the end of the day At the end of the day

watching 1x07 of rizzoli & isles and it makes me so sad. i miss awkward maura who laughs at her own jokes and can’t tell a lie. i miss korsak rescuing animals and watching puppy videos. i miss frost. i miss protective, genuine friend, no bs jane. i miss jo and bass. i miss rondo. i miss longing gazes and love touches. i miss the rare representation of friendship between women. i miss good writing. i miss everything that this show used to be.
