Rules: Using only the song titles of one artist, cleverly answer the ten questions and tag ten people.
I chose Celtic Thunder :)

“You love me,” I marveled. The sense of conviction and rightness washed through me again.
Though his eyes were still anxious, the crooked smile I loved best flashed across his face. “Truly, I do.”
My heart inflated like it was going to crack right through my ribs. It filled my chest and blocked my throat so that I could not speak.
He really did want me the way I wanted him—forever. It was only fear for my soul, for the human things he didn’t want to take from me, that made him so desperate to leave me mortal. Compared to the fear that he didn’t want me, this hurdle—my soul—seemed almost insignificant.
important disclaimer:teacher/student AU is originally neimana ‘s idea! this is like…a fanfic of her AU, & veers from the timeline she wrote originally.
~2300 words. contains: teacher/student stuff, self-indulgence, and a lot of awkwardness. excerpt:
Really it’s the responsible thing to make sure that he’s alright. Yes, it’s responsible, and she nods to herself, and takes a breath, and after another minute she convinces herself to rap on Sasaki-sensei’s door.
She hears footsteps, and then the door swings open. Touka looks up, and pales, and then turns completely red.
A person has opened the door — a person who is definitely not Sasaki-sensei. What they are, though, is dripping wet, and wearing nothing except a towel that they are pinching into place around their waist.
“Hello?” They look left and right, and then down.
“Oh,” they say, with a smile. “Why, hello there, ma chérie.”
Year Zero is my favourite NIN album and has been for about 4/5 years. The effort and sound of an album that was recorded on a tour bus during the With Teeth tour and the ARG is fucking insane in my book.
5-Meet Your Master For the longest time I thought he was saying Countdown Juliet in the chorus but still I love the gut punchiness of the song.
4-Zero-Sum I wrote the chorus to this song on a remembrance day poster I had to make for my secondary school and won first prize. Thank you Trent. Amazing song by the way too.
3-God Given I’ve always loved the funkiness to this song and to be cliche, it reminds me a lot of Red State due to the Religious theme.
Also the Happiness In Slavery samples on the live version i just adore
1-In This Twilight My favourite NIN song of all time. Now known as a tribute to Andrew Youssef (concert photographer that Trent was close with) it’s perhaps the best song Trent has ever written, it’s just hits me in the feels everytime.
Ghosts admittedly is perhaps one of the NIN albums that I listen to the least, not that I don’t like it or anything but I need to be the right mood set to listen to it all from beginning to end.
