like a song you enchanted me

Evermore is the most gorgeous song that rips your heart out and makes you feel all the FEELS!!

- Josh Groban’s version is absolutely wonderful 

- I literally can’t comprehend how he stole an angels voice and made it even better 

- You can really appreciate the depth and strength of his voice like damn 

- I get Phantom of the Opera vibes and can totally see the song in both 

- Thank you my enchanting siren 


- This one literally makes me clench my heart in pain 

- At the end of the song I’m on the verge of tears 

- You can truly feel how much she has affected him and he can never let her go inside his heart 

- But he does because he is selfless as fuck and wants her happiness before anyone’s 

- It just has so much emotion especially the last lyrics like I’m bawling just writing this 

- Forever in love with you my Beauty 


I was the one who had it all
I was the master of my fate
I never needed anybody in my life
I learned the truth too late

I’ll never shake away the pain
I close my eyes but she’s still there
I let her steal into my melancholy heart
It’s more than I can bear

Now I know she’ll never leave me
Even as she runs away
She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me
Move me, come what may

Wasting in my lonely tower
Waiting by an open door
I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in
And be with me for evermore

I rage against the trials of love
I curse the fading of the light
Though she’s already flown so far beyond my reach
She’s never out of sight

Now I know she’ll never leave me
Even as she fades from view
She will still inpire me, be a part of
Everything I do

Wasting in my lonely tower
Waiting by an open door
I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in

And as the long, long nights begin
I’ll think of all that might have been
Waiting here for evermore!

  •  Imagine every Friday night to celebrate the weekend, whatever year you’re in has a battle of the bands tradition, where everyone gathers in the Hufflepuff common room to rock tf out.
  • Pureblood student’s learning muggle music and instruments and LOVING it.
  • Every person in the year having mad hangovers the next day, and being dragged to the Quidditch pitch. All of the older students who attended the battle the previous night would all be dying, some of them even conjuring their own potions in an attempt to stop their hangovers.
  • “10 points to Ravenclaw” *AGGRESSIVELY DABS* 
  • If you weren’t in Hufflepuff yourself, the Hufflepuffs would be so fucking annoying. In EVERY SINGLE HOUSE EVENT they would all be chanting this song. (Even better if there was a Hufflepuff vs Slytherin Quidditch match and all the fucking Hufflepuff’s start shrieking the snake part)
  • I’m convinced there would be a Wizarding equivalent to social media apps like vine, instagram etc. Imagine the fucking vines that would be made through the school year im dyigreqdasiuf
  • Some Ravenclaw students using the room of requirement as a gym, because they know not only the importance of a healthy mind, but a healthy body too. Some Gryffindor students tagging along too when they notice what they’re up to, interested in muggle ‘leg day’, as they call it.
  • Piercing’s getting banned but most students being like lol fuck ya, wearing nose rings, septums etc all the time without fail.
  • Skater kids would enchant their skateboards to be able to hover, riding them in the corridor to their classes. Some teachers like Professor Longbottom would let it slide, others such as Filch wouldn’t be as forgiving.
  • Voldemort would become a meme.
  • He would definitely be a meme oh my god I am CONVINCED of this
  • In the History of Magic studies, the selected teacher would be expressing how dangerous and fearful the Dark Lord had once looked, one of the Slytherin students yelling out, ‘He doesn’t even have a bloody nose?! Dark Lord my arse.”
  • Muggle born students would take their pureblood friends to Muggle music festivals like Glastonbury and Reading Leeds, and they would go OFF. 
  • Wizards/Witches enchanting their camping tents so it’s like a small cabin, so it wasn’t uncomfortable to sleep in after a long day of seeing all the bands.
  • Kids who stay over the Christmas holidays would so stay up and play beer pong for New Years- all the Ravenclaws using advanced magic to cheat.
  • In Charms class, the students in their last year would do the mannequin challenge, making objects levitate while someone records it all.
  • Gryffindor students being annoying little fucks and trying to see how many teachers they could get to dab over the year. This turns into an annual house event for students, Slytherin always winning.
  • For Halloween all the older students enchanting their image to look like professors, which may become problematic through the day.
  • Hufflepuffs coming to class stoned, but never get told off for it. Sure, the odd point or two will be taken away if it’s that obvious, but those little shits always get away with it. Bonus points because their common room is so close to the kitchen.
  • If you haven’t heard this song before, I believe the Gryffindor would change the lyrics to “Gryffindor sound, we aint fucken around, fuck our classes man so we keep it underground, cause potions each day got me feeling like shit but it’s all worth while when the weekend hits.”
  • Slytherin students playing odds on, getting their Gryffindor mates to jump into the black lake to see the giant squid. 
  • Muggle borns taking their pureblood friends to rugby/hockey/soccer games, and them not having a fucking clue what’s going on.
  • Students using Snapchat to record small snippets of Mandrakes screaming then slow it down- Professor Longbottom finds this hillarious.

Beautiful Speak Now Album Things:
  • Like every fuckin’ bridge on this album makes you want to cry
  • And all the lyrics are fucking awesome. It’s a lyric-driven album
  • “Every time I look at you, it’s like the first time”
  • “You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter”
  • Opening “Mine” with “uh-oh” and closing it with the background vocals echoing “I can see it now” to show the emotional journey of the character as she believes in love again over the course of the song
  • The entirety of “Mine,” the best love story ever told
  • The fact that Taylor resurrected Sparks Fly from the dead and put it on her 3rd album because we asked her to
  • The fact that Taylor also rewrote Sparks Fly and took out the lyrics that made it more sexual and about performing in a bar
  • The fact that the original lyric (now displayed in The Taylor Swift Experience) was “brown eyes” and she made it “green eyes”
  • How she describes the love interest as “a full-on rainstorm” and later says “meet me in the pouring rain”
  • The juxtapositions of rain and fire and then darkness and light in Sparks Fly
  • How the entire song is just an apology without any excuses. It just’s “I messed up and you suffered for it and you didn’t deserve that” 
  • “you gave me all your love and all I gave you was goodbye” 
  • How the orchestra makes everything so fucking beautiful??
  • The use of seasons in the second verse to describe the rise and fall of the relationship
  • How she references the 2009 VMA incident (”how you held me in your arms that September night / the first time you ever saw me cry”)
  • Speak Now being about the Paramore relationship drama and how Taylor was actually at the wedding it’s about lol
  • Taylor singing up an octave in Speak Now to sound like a gentle little girl about to crash the shit out of wedding
  • “a gown shaped like a pastry” “fond gestures are exchanged” “a song that sounds like a death march” “she floats down the isle like a pageant queen” = so descriptive?? conveys the feelings?? Queen of conveying emotions through descriptions
  • “you need to hear me out and they said Speak Now” “Your time is running out and they said Speak Now” “I hear the preacher say, ‘Speak Now or forever hold your peace” “So glad you were around when they said Speak Now” = queen of altering her main chorus line
  • “I’m not the kind of girl who should be rudely barging in on a white veil occasion” –> What’s the kind of girl tho?? I never knew
  • The giggle in the bridge
  • How Dear John calls out emotional abuse by a much older man onto a 19 year old without any apologies or sympathizing with the man but also has pieces where the victim blames themselves and calls out a pattern of abuse of other women
  • But it ends with the victim retaining their self worth and escaping and it’s amazing
  • “the girl in the dress cried the whole way home” –> have you ever seen such a beautiful conveying of a young girl’s loss of emotional innocence 
  • How the secret message of Dear John is “loved you from the very first day” which is a line on a bonus track “Superman” which is about how the love interest seems like the best guy in the world and a real life Superman 
  • That fuckin’ banjo in Mean
  • How Mean began about a critic who said Taylor ruined her “entire career overnight” at the Grammys and then Taylor performing Mean at the Grammys and wining 2 Grammys for it
  • The use of a big city to display one’s level success (which is what actually happened when Taylor moved to NYC)
  • “A simple complication, miscommunications lead to fallout” 
  • Isn’t it weird how she says “and people would say they’re the lucky ones” then on the Speak Now Tour she wrote “The Lucky One” ?? weird
  • “So many things that I wish you knew / so many walls up I can’t break through” –> “So many things that you wish I knew / but the Story of Us might be ending soon”
  • That fuckin’ ramp up back into the chorus after the bridge in The Story of Us
  • How perfectly Never Grow Up conveys how scary can it feel to grow up
  • The bridge of Never Grow Up
  • How every song except Never Grow Up and Last Kiss use heavy production and background vocals and it makes those two songs that much more powerful in their simplicity 
  • “I just realized everything I have is someday gonna be gone” and how this line gets more powerful the more years that go by
  • How Never Grow Up starts as a song to a baby, watches that baby grow up, and ends with Taylor  looking back at her life and the passage of time and swearing to protect that baby from harm….you ever cry
  • Just take 5 minutes and listen to Enchanted again pls
  • “Wonderstruck” “Enchanted” “Passing notes in secrecy” “this is me praying” “the very first page, not where the story line ends” “your eyes whispered” “this night is sparkling” “blushing all the way home” “I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew” “this night is flawless” “dancing ‘round all alone” –> So much mystical and whimsical imagery that you feel like you could call in love with the next person you see
  • The guitars in Enchanted
  • The production of Enchanted
  • “Sophistication isn’t what you wear or who you know / or pushing people down to get you where you wanna go” 
  • “I always get the last word” “There is nothing I do better than revenge” “show me how much better you are” –> Taylor is v self-aware 
  • Also how “show me how much better you are” is a reference to that JoBro song “Much Better” lmao so much 2008/2009 Disney drama
  • How Taylor wrote Innocent about the VMA incident when she could’ve just told you-know-who to fuck off
  • How Innocent looks at the subject from the perspective of their childhood and how they had “monsters” and “demons” that made them do bad things later in life and how this doesn’t make them a bad person
  • Knowing that you-know-who was one of Taylor’s favorite artists growing up so Innocent is also Taylor reconciling with herself how someone she artistically looked up to for years hurt her 
  • The use of light: “time turns flames to embers” “your string of lights is still bright to me” “in your firefly catching days” 
  • How Innocent is Never Grow Up but applied to someone else through the lens of forgiveness
  • “I hope you’ll remember: today is never too late to be brand new”
  • The orchestra in Haunted and how it makes the song sound urgent and the situation dangerous
  • “holding my breath” “your eyes go cold” “something’s gone terribly wrong” “can’t turn back now” “a fragile line” “it’s getting dark and it’s all too quiet and I can’t trust anything now” “come on, come on, don’t leave me like this” “can’t breath whenever you’re gone” “you’re not gone, you can’t be gone” –> everything sounds dangerous and urgent!! Like she’s actually gonna die!! And it’s called Haunted!! You get haunted by dead people!! But she’s saying she’s haunted!! The Haunting is killing her!! Holy shit!!
  • Last Kiss
  • The secret message of Last Kiss: “Forever and Always” 
  • The breath in the bridge of Last Kiss
  • The use of time and the passage of time: “at 1:58″ “that July 9th” “you can plan for a change in weather and time” “your name forever the name on my lips” “I’ll watch your life in pictures” “I’ll feel you forget me” “I’ll keep up with our old friends” “I still remember” “L
  • “I’m not much for dancing, but for you I did” –> “I don’t wanna dance if I’m not dancing with you” (Holy Ground)
  • THE BRIDGE: “So I’ll watch your life in pictures like I used to watch you sleep / and I’ll feel you forget me like I used to feel you breathe / and I’ll keep up with our old friends just to ask them how you are / hope it’s nice where you are / I hope the sun shines and it’s a beautiful day / and something reminds you / you wish you had stayed /  you can plan for a change in the weather and time / but I never planned on you changing your mind”
  • How the secret message of Long Live is “For you”
  • How Taylor ends Speak Now with a song for her fans and her band that she wrote during the Fearless Tour
  • How Long Live because even more powerful and beautiful and even sadder the more the years go by and the more successful Taylor becomes and as original member of The Agency leave/are left go
  • How Taylor wrote “we will be remembered” when she was like 19 and was still on her second album and before she won AOTY for the first time and wasn’t even close to the prime of her career but she was proud of how far she had come already and how Long Live sounds like a song someone writes at the end of their career to reflect on their accomplishments 
  • How Taylor wrote “promise me this: that you’ll stand by me forever” and every band member she has ever had still speaks highly of her and defends her
  • “When they point to the pictures, please tell them my name” but now no one will have to because everyone knows who she is and will know who she is for a long time because of her accomplishments and effect on popular culture
  • “It was the end of a decade but the start of an age” Taylor literally had no idea how true this line would become

- I love you so much

- A kiss!

- Kiss me a lot!! (’Bésame mucho’ is also a very popular song in Latin America)

Falling In Love With GOT7... As Disney Songs

JB: I See the Light- Tangled || And at last I see the light, and it’s like the sky is new. And it’s warm and real and bright, and the world has somehow shifted; all at once everything is different now that I see you,

Mark: So Close- Enchanted || You’re in my arms, and all the world is calm. The music playing on for only two. So close, together. And when I’m with you. So close, to feeling alive.

Jackson: A Whole New World- Aladdin || I can show you the world; shining shimmering splendid. Tell me princess, now when did you last let your heart decide?

Jinyoung: When She Loved Me- Toy Story 2 ||  Through the summer and the fall, we had each other that was all- just she and I together like it was meant to be. And when she was lonely I was there to comfort her, and I knew that she loved me.

Youngjae: Never Knew I Needed- The Princess and The Frog || My accidental happily ever after, the way you smile and how you comfort me with your laughter. I must admit you were a part of my book, but now if you open it up and take a look you’re the beginning and the end of ever chapter.. You’re the best thing I never knew I needed.

Bambam: Can You Feel the Love Tonight? - The Lion King || Can you feel the love tonight; the peace the evening brings? The world, for once, in perfect harmony with all it’s living things.

Yugyeom: If I Never Knew You- Pocahontas || If I new knew you, if I never felt this love, I would have no inkling of how precious life can be. And if I never knew you, I would never have a clue, how at last I’d find in you the missing art of me.

Louis is Harry Styles’ biggest fan. It doesn’t matter that Harry is famous for being a food blogger and Louis can’t cook to save his life.
At least, until Harry offers to give Louis a cooking lesson. Then it matters just a teensy bit.

In short, Harry’s in love with someone and doesn’t care about dating anyone else, Louis never felt home in L.A., Liam writes love songs for someone he shouldn’t write love songs to, and Niall makes everything better with good food. 

Harry and Louis are both solo artists, and they’re not exactly friends but they are friendly with each other until one day Harry asks Louis to collab with him on a song he wrote and things start changing (ft. a lot of sexual tension)

The one where Harry Styles has a bad reputation and a heart of gold, and Louis Tomlinson wishes he wasn’t so enchanted by boys who looked like Disney characters and wore shirts with bumble bees on them.
[aka Louis is the director of the Styles Elephant Sanctuary and really doesn’t want to babysit his funder’s spoiled lay-about son for two months]

Louis accidentally breaks Harry’s camera lens and in order to get it fixed, they decide to participate in a romantic couples study. The only issue is that they are not actually couple. Well that and the fact they cannot stand each other.

reasons why speak now is taylor’s best album

1. last kiss, i feel this song so much and i haven’t even had a relationship yet
2. the most romantic lyric ever written in mine: “i remember how we felt, sitting by the water, and every time i look at you, it’s like the first time”
3. back to december is like “you know, I fucked up” and that’s good too. also “maybe this is wishful thinking, probably mindless dreaming:
4. better than revenge and the story of us literally have the best beats ever and it makes me wanna jump every time
5. DEAR JOHN??? the whole track??? written by a 19 year old???
6. enchanted is literally an experience on its own, it’s like you’re a princess in a fairytale (and also it gave us one of the best cinematic experiences: the wonderstruck commercials)
8. ICONIC sparks fly, the best opening for a tour ever
9. did i mention last kiss
10. and last but not least: the whole intro / prologue for speak now made my skin clearer and the message itself is so important!!! and it really helped me a lot in life!!!

Rainy’s “Song of Storms” Enchantment

Musical Instrument Enchantment Spell for Whistling up Rain/Storms 

Originally posted by crittle1985

Hello there all of you music-playing, rain-loving, and pop-culture witches! Here’s a handy little enchantment to put upon your musical instrument, so that you can use it to “whistle up” a wind whenever you play a certain song. This spell was inspired by Legend of Zelda’s “Song of Storms”, so of course, we will be using the sheet music from that during the enchantment.

(To get a “feel” for the song, I recommend listening to this cover, or this cover!)

Newtina, Soulmates AU

for anon

15.  Soulmates AU-I created a creature for this one, the Mográéan ( Mo grá-my love, and éan-bird, both according to Google Translate, so I apologize if it’s wrong).  The Mográéan is a bird who only sings in the presence of soulmates.  ;)    Special thanks to @leftylain for giving me this idea a while back.  <3

a/n:  I’m probably going to continue this one too.  I love it.  

“There it is…” Newt whispered.  Tina squinted into the bush where he was looking, spying the glinting silver of its’ tail feathers, the golden hue of its plummage. “The Mográéan…”  

“And it only sings in the presence of soulmates?” she whispered.  

He nodded.  “Quite.  It’s rare to hear its song, but the Ministry wish for me to capture one to study it…in hopes of being able to figure out exactly how it knows which people are soulmates.  I’d like to find a breeding pair if I can.”  

“It would certainly make it easier to go about your day to day, if you knew your soulmate was out there somewhere…” she said slowly.

“I suppose it would…” he straightened,  his net in hand as he stalked towards the bird.  Tina moved right behind him, the enchanted cage at the ready.  It would only need to be in the cage for as long as it took to catalogue and inspect the bird.  After that, it would live happily in Newt’s case with the rest of his creatures.

Just as they approached the bird, it opened its mouth and squawked.  A horrible, loud, retching sound that jarred her to her very core.  She reached out to grab Newt’s arm.  “What is it doing?”  

He smiled over at her, the look was warm and inviting, even in light of the bird’s horrible squawking. He patted her hand and yelled over the racket, “IT’S SINGING!!!”

Found this in my drafts**:

*clears throat* May I present the idea:
~✨Ella Enchanted au✨~

  • •Laurent is from a very well-to-do kingdom
  • •Auguste died (idc how)
  • •Akielos took a bunch of land after that
  • •When Laurent was born his aunt Vannes gave him the “gift” of obedience
  • •When Laurent lost his family he was left to live with his Uncle and his uncle’s men (man? Idk how to fit the evil step-sisters in so like twin Govarts??? LOL)
  • •His uncle tells him that he isn’t allowed to protect/hang out with Nicaise

You Talking in Your Native Language while Cuddling with Them: BTS

| BigBang |


“You’re so cute when you speak your own language; your voice gets softer compared to your Korean voice.”


“Do you thin you’d be able to sing if I’d written a song for you? In French, of course, cause it sounds enchanting.”


“Angel, teach me! Teach me! Teach me! How many more times will I have to ask in order for you to teach me?!”

Rap Monster:

*clenches fists* “Soon enough, Baby, I will be able to talk with you in the same language.” *proceeds to study the dictionary*


“Your native voice is so soothing, Honey. You should talk in it more.”


Will probably answer something like:

“Ajkbfevh adsh.”

“TaeTae, this is not even—”


“I’m so done.”


I guarantee you that he will have it already learned, or at least the important phrases. End of story.


Request some more, folks~.


The name comes form a 132m high slate rock on the right bank of the River Rhine in the Rhine Gorge


Lurlen         (Old German, Rhine dialect) meaning “murmuring”

Ley         (Celtic) meaning “rock”

In German, Loreley is the correct spelling.


1801–Clemens Brentans

“Zu Bacharach am Rhine”

First told the story of an enchanting female associated with the rock

In the poem, Lore Lay is betrayed by her love and accused of bewitching men to cause their deaths. Rather than sentencing her to death, she is consigned to a nunnery. On the way, accompanied by three knights, she comes to the rock. She asks permission to climb it and, in doing so, she thinks she sees her love and falls to her death.

1824–Heinrich Heine

“Die Lorelei”

Describes the eponymous female as a siren who, sitting on the cliff above the Rhine & combing her hair, unwittingly distracted passing shipmen with her beauty & song, causing them to crash into the rocks.

This is the most popular version of the legend, and is the type of entity I have met.

Personal Experience

I personally have always felt a connection with the name Lorelei, and thus I used part of it in creating the name I use in my craft.

  • All of the following information is coming from my experiences in the astral and are not to be taken as hard and fast rules. Everyone perceives beings differently, and everyone will have a different experience in the astral, which means that not everyone is going to agree with what I say.
  • Lorelei are water spirits with an undying love for music. Most communicate entirely through song, and theirs is a primarily oral culture. They have few written records, and I’ve been told that the few that exist are records of some of their oldest and most precious songs. Of course I’ve never seen them myself, so I’m going on the word of the few lorelei I have met.
  • As I said, lorelei have an undying love for music and so people who love music would get along very well with lorelei. However, do remember that they are quite like the depictions of sirens in that they have the tendency to lure sailors to their deaths. They can be vicious, especially the most talented of singers. Be prepared to sing everything you say to them.
  • Most of their songs don’t actually have words, just complex rhythms and harmonies played out on a neutral vowel. The meaning gets across astonishingly well even without words.
  • Call on the lorelei for help if you want your song to be enchanting and alluring, or for glamours.
  • Good offerings for lorelei include:
    • Singing (duh)
    • Sitting and combing your hair
    • River stones
    • Sea glass
    • Shiny things
    • Forget-me-nots

anonymous asked:

Pairing: James x MC surprise surprise lmao
Warnings: Tiniest food mention, but that’s it!
Author’s Note: This is for this week’s ChoicesCreates, and the prompt was to write/create something based on a Disney Song, so I decided to pick “So Close” by Jon McLaughlin, which is from one of my favourite Disney movies ever, Enchanted. You can listen to the song here. Song lyrics in the fic will look like this 
Summary: Before James leaves for LA, he and MC spend one last night together.

I wrote “Enchanted” about a guy who I was enchanted to meet, obviously. He was somebody that I had talked to a couple of times on email, and then I was in New York and went to meet him. I remember just the whole way home thinking, “I hope he’s not in love with somebody.” It was just wonderful, that feeling. Like, “Oh my gosh. Who’s he with? Does he like me? Does he like somebody else? What does it mean?” I got home and he had emailed me and said something like, “Sorry I was so quiet. I was just wonderstruck meeting you.” And so I incorporated the word wonderstruck, into the song as a, “Hey this one’s sorta for you.”
