amused to read The Raven Cycle described as “urban fantasy” when actually it’s RURAL fantasy. that should be a new genre: rural fantasy. also, “suburban fantasy” and if we’re getting really crazy “wilderness fantasy.”
That’s what this symbol means. The symbol of the House of El means hope.
Embodied within that hope is the fundamental belief in the potential of every person to be a force for good. That’s what you can bring them.
I’m such a liar.
When you see me, you’ll think of me as the strongest girl you’ll ever meet.
When you look at me, you’ll see a person who’s never easily hurt, while actually I can be easily hurt with a look.
When you look at me, you’ll see me holding myself like a proudly moving lioness, while if you look closely all you see is a soft kitten who needs a lot of care in order to survive.
When you see me in some situations in life, you’ll think of me as a marvelous iceberg; strong and cold, the kind of cold that is never affected, but if you know, and you’ll never know, I feel the fire burning my heart, I feel like a mad volcano that is never cooling down.
When you look at me, you’ll get the vibe that I never ever needed anyone nor will I ever do, and dont worry about that, I’m very talented at giving that vibe. But, deep down, I need, I need so badly to feel safe in someone’s arms, someone who could understand, someone who could hold something as fragile as me.
Yes, I’m a liar, a huge deceiver. So please don’t believe me when you first see me, because maybe you’re the one who could know how to heal the broken heart I hold.
The phrase pura vida can be used in many ways: for example, it can be used both as a greeting or a farewell, as an answer expressing that things are going well, or as a way of giving thanks. (submitted by celeskid)
