love-ya-adam

this isn’t a love story
at least not in the traditional sense
this isn’t a love story between you and me and everyone else
this is a story about how we learned to love ourselves
about how we aligned our hearts with the constellations and our dreams shined like the moonlight across our cheekbones when we turned our faces to the sky out in the fields behind our homes
this is a love story about wishes we made on stars and adventures climbing over fallen trees into the darkness of caves
this is the story about our quest for discovering an ancient king and how we stumbled into finding ourselves along the way
this love story is about falling in love with who we are, with who we have been, and with who we will become.
—  “This isn’t your average love story, so stop reducing it to merely that.”
(m.b, a poem for the kids of Henrietta)

(1/10) THE RAVEN CYCLE by Maggie Stiefvater

“The king sleeps still, under a mountain , and around him is assembled his warriors and his herds and his riches. By his right hand is his cup, filled with possibility. On his breast nestles his sword, waiting, too, to wake. Fortunate is the soul who finds the king and is brave enough to call him to wakefulness, for the king will grant him a favour, as wondrous as can be imagined by a mortal man.”

Some nights he lured himself to sleep by imagining how he would word the favour for Glendower. He needed to get the words exactly right. Now he rolled phrases around his mouth, desperately reaching for one that would comfort him. Ordinarily, words would tumblr and lull through his mind, but this time, all he could think was

Fix me.

Super fabulous YA lit meme → Five protagonists || 2/5: Adam Parrish, The Raven Cycle

Being Adam Parrish was a complicated thing, a wonder of muscles and organs, synapses and nerves. He was a miracle of moving parts, a study in survival. The most important thing to Adam Parrish, though, had always been free will, the ability to be his own master.

It’s really heartbreaking to read Blue lily lily blue because you can seeing the gang slowly breaking under the stress 

Like Blue has dealt with the bullies at her school for years now and the possibility that she won’t get to go to the college she wants but she always had Maura to talk about it. And when she finally finds out everything around her is crumbling she has no one to turn to like no one will understand except maybe Adam but after what happened between them she can’t rely on him. And now that her mom is gone she has no one to truly depend on and she’s cracking under the pressure of knowing that Gansey is gonna die, with her feelings for him and struggling to find a way to keep the boy she loves alive not to mention how she is constantly worried for her mother’s safety

Gansey on the other hand is breaking too as he slowly realizes that what he’s been searching for for years is almost at an end. He’s not 100% sure if he will get the wish he’s been hoping for. And his friends aren’t originally who he thought they were and that plays a big role in unraveling him. And his late night conversations with Blue are kind of a tipping point but sometimes that’s the only thing keeping him sane. and contrary to everyone’s beliefs Gansey does know that he’s gonna die and he’s not really dealing with his feelings for that so one wrong thing and he might shatter

And then there’s Adam who is constantly under enormous amounts of stress whether it’s from school, his many jobs or the pressures of Cabeswater. And after seeing the vision of Gansey dying and finding out for certain from Blue that Gansey will die within the year Adam feels he is responsible in a way for Gansey’s death. He thinks that it’s his duty to save his friend and keep up his hectic lifestyle while straining under the pressures of Cabeswater 

Lastly Ronan is working tirelessly to save Matthew from the same fate as his mother while trying to make sure that Gansey finds his King, Adam isn’t breaking under the pressure and Blue finds her mother. all while knowing that his latin teacher is the one who ordered his father’s death and could potentially cause harm to him and his friends 

These 4 kids are unraveling and no one can do anything because they are the only ones who can save themselves while everything and everyone around them in crumbling

Artistic!Adam headcanons because we need more Males in YA who draw and it’s totally something I can see Adam Parrish do

  • Okay so, he first started drawing when he was very very young. He was like 5 or 6 and he used to draw a perfect family: him, his mother, his father, all happy and smiling
  • At first he just drew as often as other kids his age did, but as he grew older he realized that that imagine of a perfect happy family would never come true and it was nothing more than the dreams of a small kid drawn on paper
  • So, it became his little escape. When he lay in bed at night, his whole body aching and new bruises forming, he drew how he hoped his life could be; he drew his father smiling, he drew his father and his mother together, he drew himself, too; happy and without the cut on his lip, the dirt under his fingernails and the scratches and bruises on his skin
  • It started like that. And at some point it was just a part of him, it was something that belonged to him, something he was good at, something he didn’t disappoint in, something he did for himself
  • And later, after he met the gangsey, he started drawing them all. Back when he had a crush on Blue his sketchbook would be full of her, but he also drew Gansey looking over his miniature Henrietta model, Noah skating, Ronan holding Chainsaw in his hands
  • And after he and Ronan finally got together, Ronan would accidentally find Adam’s sketchbook and see all the drawings of him there and all the ways he captures his features and. He was just so happy he couldn’t believe it also his ears were red af ok
  • Adam would also totally draw him when Ronan is sleeping. He tried to draw him while Ronan was awake but he just couldn’t keep still so whenever he falls asleep Adam gets a pen and draws his slightly opened mouth, his half smile, his soft features when he’s sleeping
  • Also Adam always finishes his exams before the others ( HAH NERD ) so while everyone else is still writing he is doodling trees and chainsaw and Ronan’s tattoo which he can draw by heart
  • Ronan finding Adam drawing in his apartment at 3am trying to convince him to just lay the fuck down and sleep because he knows how tired he is but just let me finish this one painting yet, Lynch
  • The gangsey buying him art supplies for christmas and his birthday and Adam just shining because he can finally draw with good pencils and the new colors are so amazing and the new paper is so thick and the paint brushes -
  • Adam is painting and Ronan is trying to get his attention so he smudges some color on his cheek and Adam just *gasp* oh hell no you didn’t and this, is the story of how Adam Parrish and Ronan Lynch ended up making out with color all over their bodies
  • Ronan and Adam’s apartment would be full of Adam’s paintings and even though Adam is self conscious Ronan insists to hang up every. single. one
