matty inspired

if someone tells you their favourite song or album, and speaks passionately about it, you better fucking cherish it and damn well listen to it. it will tell you things about the person they aren’t ready to fully express.

I like it when you sleep for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it.

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s be here now, cause everybody, all of us, me included, we all try to live later on, or before, or not, we just don’t live now a lot of the time and it’s really annoying. So why don’t all of us just appreciate the moment? What I mean is, let’s have five minutes where it’s us and you, and no phones.

Hi. I live in a community where girls are really not given much of agency. Less a community, more a family. It's been choking me for so long. I just really want to thank you because you, your characters inspire me so much. They go against such odds, fall apart and yet make it. Everyday now, I find myself thinking 'what would Predator Felicity do?' or 'what would Matty say?' And little by little, I am changing my life for the better. So thank you, Matty. You don't write stories, you change lives.

Wow. Wow.

I don’t even know you, anon, and yet I feel so proud of you. Breaking shackles of any kind is not any easy thing to do and that you are doing that, even bit by bit, is a huge testament to your strength and fortitude. 

I feel honored that my stories were the catalyst for the change but I don’t doubt, for one minute, that you wouldn’t have done it anyways. If not me, it would’ve been someone else and you would have still found your courage because this fight? It’s all you, love.

Never, ever let nobody tell you who you are and what you’re capable of - not even yourself. And always remember

Run your world while dancing to your own tune.

Thank you, anon, for making my writing worthwhile. 

Thank you for inspiring me. 

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: I’m just so proud of The 1975 they’ve come so far from the Drive Like I Do Days to where they are now. I’m not just talking about the size or dedication of the fanbase, but the production on these tracks is just so beautiful and leaves me speechless. This band never ceases to remind me just how beautiful music can be and they have truly taught me that music is art. Every drum beat and guitar riff awakens a part of my soul that only this band’s music can access and I am so happy that their music exists.

A plot between an older guy and a younger girl (maybe a 6 year age difference), that’s tainted. His depression, addictions, and various other emotional blocks keeps him from getting too overly invested and he constantly betrays her, but always ends up coming back to her. She tries to keep up with him, adopting his addictions in turn. But, when they’re doing drugs together, he beautifully, and poetically, opens up to her. He writes songs about her, pure poetry, and she in turn writes down the experience she has with him. It’s toxic and damaging, but their love is intense. He loves being her paradox and prophet, being rough with her, but he’s also soft and looks out for her. She’s a wildfire, reckless, violent, but still young and immature.
