I’ve been in the worst of moods lately, and not only that but have some big big things coming up that I really need to focus on. You all are very supportive of what I do, and I appreciate that! But after some thought, I’ve been considering the following.
With that said:
I might go on a hiatus from Tumblr. Possibly for a month.
It’s not guaranteed, but I’m really thinking about it. So if I do go on with this and anybody wants to contact me, do so via Twitter, deviantArt, or Discord (if you have my thing on there).
Summary: 50 years after the events of the last
chapter, the Inner Circle celebrate Starfall for the first time since Rhysand
was stripped of his power and separated from his friends. Afterward, Mor and Az
discuss the changes they have gone through and come to a decision.
Note: The first poem they read is Love Sonnet
XVII, the second is Love Sonnet XI, both by Pablo Neruda. You can also read Full Circle
as somewhat of a continuation
of this series, btw, as it alludes to events in the second chapter.
Morrigan took herself in
in the full-length mirror before her. She had chosen a white dress for
tonight, the silk hugging her curves, the color complementing her blond
waves and golden brown eyes. She ran her hands over her hips, smoothing
the fabric, and thought of what she and her friends had been through
over the last 50 years. They deserved this. To have one night where they
were together, and at least a few of them were happy. It was their
favorite holiday, and she didn’t want Rhysand distracted from Feyre,
from his potential happiness, by being worried about her.
She sighed quietly. Her cousin had suffered, and she was glad to see
him finding some kind of happiness. When he had come to her, throwing
the words at her – she’s my mate – Mor hadn’t known what to
make of it. 50 years apart, afraid at any moment that Amarantha would
kill him… He had been her champion repeatedly over the years, and the
thought that she was helpless to aid him had nearly been too much
sometimes. She had been overjoyed at his freedom, that he had his
powers, that he had found his mate. But of course, that was quickly
tempered by the fact that Feyre was not really his, by the little he had
been willing to tell Mor about his time with Amarantha. She knew that
he had endured far worse than what he had told her, and that she might
never know the full extent of it.
Now they were facing an entirely new host of potential problems… But
Feyre was here. And not only had Rhys found someone to help him heal,
Mor had found one of the closest friends she had had in ages.
Before everything had changed, Mor had been so close to happiness
herself, to what she had always wanted. Thoughts of their dinner at
Rita’s flitted through her mind, Azriel pressing himself into her,
telling her he loved her, his lips on hers… The evening before Rhys left
they had been practically giddy, Azriel teasing and playing with her in
ways that still pained her to remember. He hadn’t looked at her the
same way since, with such joy in his eyes, and she didn’t blame him. The
guilt for sending his lover Under the Mountain, the limbo it had left
them in, had been too much.
She wouldn’t let herself regret the past too much; it was rarely ever
productive. But sometimes, she wondered if things were now coming
together… She shook her head, clearing it. If it wasn’t helpful to think
of the past, perhaps it was no more so to think of what could be in the
future. She could be hopeful, optimistic, but she didn’t want to have
to live with the pain of seeing things fail to pass. Again.
After one last glance back in the mirror, she wandered downstairs to meet her friends.
One of the many unexpected consequences of fame is that you become a magnet for indiscriminate dreams, hopes, madness and delusions. Its corollary is that you are always disappointing people. Once you become famous, you are always shattering dreams you never encouraged, withdrawing help you never volunteered, and breaking promises you never made.
Dear people who multi-ship: That’s it. I’m convinced. You’re all wizards. HOW DO YOU DO IT? I DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS MAGIC. YOU CAN ENJOY THE CONTENT FOR MULTIPLE SHIPS. YOU GET LIKE, TWO TIMES THE CONTENT. YOU LUCKY DUCKS, THIS ISN’T FAIR.
“tofu is bad bc he treats her like a servant but the tog/ami school mode is so romantic when tog/ami makes naeg his servant assistant and naeg asks him to put up with him a little longer and togs will fire naeg if he makes one mistake, that’s a completely balanced relationship”
I don’t think I ever mentioned that I knew almost nothing about Star Wars VII when I went to see it so Poe and I essentially had the same reaction to this stormtrooper whipping off their helmet to reveal a fine as fuck John Boyega beneath
