❛ What are you doin’? ❜
❛ Sorry. I just thought with the Captain issue in doubt, I’d throw my name in for consideration, sorry. ❜
❛ Shoot him! ❜
❛ Cut out his tongue! ❜
❛ Shoot him and cut out his tongue, then shoot his tongue! ❜
❛ You will listen to me! ❜
❛ And what the enemy will see, they will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! ❜
❛ Think you can outrun the world? ❜
❛ Sometimes things come back mate. We’re livin’ proof, you and me. ❜
❛ There’s never a guarantee of comin’ back. ❜
❛ It’s our only hope. ❜
❛ The world used to be a bigger place. ❜
❛ World’s still the same. There’s just less in it. ❜
❛ Dying is the day worth living for. ❜
❛ Will you marry me? ❜
❛ I don’t think now’s the best time! ❜
❛ I love you. I’ve made my choice. What’s yours? ❜
❛ I’m a little busy at the moment! ❜
❛ And that was without even a single drop of rum. ❜
❛ You’ve seen it all, done it all. ❜
❛ That’s the trick isn’t it? To survive? ❜
❛ It’s not just about living forever. The trick is still living with yourself forever. ❜
❛ There’s not been a gatherin’ like this in our lifetime. ❜
❛ I owe them all money. ❜
❛ It’s always belonged to you. Will you keep it safe? ❜
❛ I leave you people alone for just a minute and look what happens, everything’s gone to pot! ❜
❛ Do you take me to be your wife, in sickness and in health, with health being less likely? ❜
❛ Just kiss! ❜
❛ Did no one come to save me just because they missed me? ❜
❛ Four of you have tried to kill me in the past. ❜
❛ Four of you have tried to kill me in the past. One of you succeeded. ❜
❛ You’ll have loads to talk about while you’re here. ❜
❛ Don’t tell me you didn’t enjoy it at the time. ❜
❛ Don’t need you, you scare me. ❜
❛ Who are you? ❜
❛ Where does your allegiance lie? ❜
❛ I have a ship. ❜
❛ I have no sympathy for any of you feculent maggots and no more patience to pretend otherwise. ❜
❛ I wash my hands of this weirdness. ❜
❛ We are an unimaginative lot when it comes to naming things. ❜
❛ I once sailed with a geezer lost both his arms and part of his eye. ❜
❛ You’re free. ❜
❛ It’s a heavy price for what’s been done. ❜
❛ Let us not, dear friends, forget our dear friends the cuttlefish. ❜
❛ We must fight. ❜
❛ Send this pestilent, traitorous, cow-hearted, yeasty codpiece to the brig. ❜
❛ I’m losing her. ❜
❛ Mate, if you choose to lock your heart away you’ll lose it for certain. ❜
❛ You may kill me, but you can never insult me. ❜
❛ That’s just maddeningly unhelpful. ❜
❛ Why are these things never clear? ❜
❛ Stab the heart. ❜
❛ Don’t stab the heart. ❜
❛ My sweet, you’ve come for me. ❜
❛ You were expecting me? ❜
❛ It has been torture, trapped in this single form, cut off from the sea. From all that I love. From you. ❜
❛ Ten years, I devoted to the duty you charged me. ❜
❛ And finally, when we could be together again, you weren’t there. Why weren’t you there? ❜
❛ Would you love me if I was anything but what I am? ❜
❛ I do not love you! ❜
❛ Many things you were, but never cruel. ❜
❛ You have corrupted your purpose, and so yourself, and you did hide away what should always have been mine! ❜
❛ I will be free, and when I am, I will give you my heart. ❜
❛ And we will be together always. ❜
❛  If only you had a heart to give. ❜
❛ I will be free, and when I am, I will give you my heart, and we will be together always… but if only you had a heart to give. ❜
❛ Why did you come? ❜
❛ The last thing they will learn in this life is how cruel I can be. ❜
❛ My heart will always belong to you. ❜
❛ Who is this traitor? ❜
❛ Keep telling yourself that, darling. ❜
❛ Do you fear death? ❜
❛ You have no idea. ❜
❛ You’ll see no mercy from me! ❜
❛ I’m a heartless wretch! ❜
❛ You’ve a cruel mind. ❜
❛ Cruel is a matter of perspective. ❜
❛ You’ve always run away from a fight! ❜
❛ You never told me any of this! ❜
❛ It was my burden to bear. ❜
❛ I miss him already. ❜
❛ He was quite charming, wasn’t he? ❜
❛ This is madness. ❜
❛ This is politics. ❜
❛ You can fight, and all of you will die… or you can not fight, in which case only most of you will die. ❜
❛ You murdered my father. ❜
❛ He chose his own fate. ❜
❛ We will fight. And you will die. ❜
❛ Your friends appear to be quite desperate. ❜
❛ You and I are no strangers to betrayal, are we? ❜
❛ Close your eyes and pretend it’s all a bad dream. That’s how I get by. ❜
❛ You may throw my hat if you wish. ❜
❛ You know my name… ❜
❛ He can’t help me. He won’t come. ❜
❛ I know you. ❜
❛ He/she spoke of you. ❜
❛ He/she won’t save me. ❜
❛ He/she won’t pick me. I wouldn’t pick me. ❜
❛ Tell him not to come. Tell him to stay away. ❜
❛ Tell him it’s too late. ❜
❛ You’re in my way, boy/girl. ❜
❛ Are you dead? ❜
❛ Are you dead? I think I am. ❜
❛ You have to be lost to find a place that can’t be found. ❜
❛ You’ve doomed us all! ❜
❛ Don’t be so unkind. ❜
❛ You may not survive to pass this way again, and these be the last friendly words you’ll hear. ❜
❛ I propose an exchange. ❜
❛ You have no right! ❜
❛ I understand the burden you bear, but I fear that cause is lost. ❜
❛ No cause is lost if there is but one fool left to fight for it. ❜
❛ You chose not to tell me. ❜
❛ You thought I loved him/her. ❜
❛ If you make your choices alone, how can I trust you? ❜
❛ What is it you want most? ❜
❛ I cannot be summoned like some mongrel pup! ❜
❛ There is more to you than meets the eye, isn’t there? ❜
❛ Yes, I lied to you. ❜
❛ No, I don’t love you. ❜
❛ Our fates have been entwined, but never joined. ❜
❛ You be the cur that led these wolves to our door? ❜
❛ My actions were my own and to my own purpose. ❜
❛ There has definitely been a breakdown in discipline aboard this vessel. ❜
❛ It’s too late to earn my forgiveness. ❜
❛ I trust you to know your place. ❜
❛ We shall have a magnificent garden party, and you’re not invited! ❜
❛ You add an agreeable sense of the macabre to any delirium. ❜
❛ The only way for a pirate to make a living these days is by betraying other pirates. ❜
❛ Drop your weapons, or I kill the man/woman! ❜
❛ We shall go to war! ❜
❛ There’s an evil on these seas that even the most staunch and bloodthirsty pirates have come to fear. ❜
❛ This is no longer your world. ❜
❛ Him at peace. ❜
❛ Death has a way of reshuffling one’s priorities. ❜

❛ You betrayed her/him. ❜
❛ You loved her/him. ❜
❛ She/he pretended to love me. ❜

❛ Will you ever forgive me? ❜
❛ The code is the law! ❜
❛ Abandon ship! ❜
❛ It’s like you don’t know me at all, mate. ❜
❛ I had nothing to do with your father’s/NAME death. ❜
❛ That does not absolve me of my other sins. ❜
❛ There’s nothing left. ❜
❛ I’m sure there must be a good reason for our suffering. ❜
❛ And some men offer desire as justification for their crimes. ❜
❛ I offer simply my desire. ❜
❛ Pretty speech from a captor, but words whispered through prison bars lose their charm. ❜
❛ It’s never too late to learn. ❜
❛ A dangerous song to be singing for anyone ignorant of its meaning. ❜

❛ You are not my Captain. ❜

Oh, but I don’t think 5-6 years is that big of a gap…at least when the people have already matured a bit…so my opinion has influenced this post a lot….

I don’t really think age matters, as long as two people get along with each other and are happy in each other’s presence, it’s alright :)


1. Xiumin

“It must be a bit weird now, but if I wait a few more years, it should be fine, no?”

2. Luhan

“Ahhh, what do I do…if I start dating her, the media will kill me…”

3. Kris

*doesn’t really give a fuck what people would say*

4. Suho

“I guess I’ll just have to wait…" 

5. Lay

"But does age really matter when I know I love her?!…”

6. Baekhyun

“YAH! it’s true love, I’m telling you….but for the sake of not getting in prison, I’ll wait a bit…”

7. Chen

“In my defense, she looks older than she actually is…”

8. Chanyeol

“Well…uhm…it’s my life…don’t I get to decide what to do with it?…But she’s still young….aaah, what to do…”

9. D.O.

“Why is everybody making absurd speculations? Love doesn’t always mean physical closeness! I feel love for her and I’ll wait, but for now I’ll protect her and make her happy!”

10. Tao

“I can’t handle this anymore, I’m going to confess!”

11. Kai

*what’s wrong with me? she’s too young…but I really love her…what do I do?*

“When we have our magnificent garden party all the haters won’t be invited…”

Magnificent Garden Parties | Retroactive | Louis and Alois

It was a pleasantly warm day, though Louis didn’t find it all that pleasant given her current state of dress. That morning she had thought it would be perfectly okay to wear the overly ornate, formal dress she had laid out for festivities and such. Only after arriving she’d found that it was much too humid for all the layers she had on and the issue of breathing was proving to be a problem as well. Still, she did like her outfit when it came to aesthetics, but not so much in terms of functionality. 

Rather than rush about and tire herself out quickly she wandered off to the side under what little shade she could find. She scanned the crowds of people, having lost track of her brother. Of course she imagined Alois was probably inside the house doing whatever it was he did when she wasn’t around to scold his actions. 

Meanwhile, in the house, Alois was going about idly looking around the main sitting area. He didn’t look much like his usual self, but only because Louis had picked out his clothing and forced a comb through his hair. Obviously, he was checking doors and windows for later breaking/entering and escape plans. At one point he pauses to glance out the window, but he found little interest in the social atmosphere outside.
