meet my queue

I said, meet me in the garden.
You know the one–
it is called Smiling Spring.
There are nightingales chirping away,
wine and candle lights,
and companions as soft as
pomegranate blossoms.
You think this all would sound so perfect!
But without you by my side,
what use is the Smiling Spring?
And when you are with me,
what use are pomegranate blossoms?
—  Rumi, ‘Meet Me in the Garden’ (trans. Shahram Shiva)

***** ALL THE PEOPLE THAT GET TOSSED ABOUT BY HISTORY... I ALWAYS HOPE THEY'LL BE REBORN INTO A NORMAL LIFE, FALL IN LOVE AND END UP LIVING HAPPILY SOMEWHERE. WHEN I SAW YOU, I THOUGHT "GOD DOES WONDERFUL THINGS" BE HAPPY THIS TIME IT SEEMS LIKE MY WISH HAS ALREADY COME TRUE.

There’s a banter where Jaal compliments Cora for being the most physically fit member on the Tempest and not to turn this into being about Ashley Williams like I always do but here we fucking go because…listen…the poetry, the love of family, Ashley’s “real steel”…he would be in love with her, okay. He would ask about this Tennyson person and take her up on the offer to feel her arm muscle. It would be magnificent.

so the full story on what happened when i accidentally sassed dan at tatinof:

okay so after the hugs and the hellos dan gestured to my book and said “do you want us to sign that?” and i was accidentally a sARCASTIC ASS and said “no i actually just brought it for you to look at” and for half a second they were silent and then phil did like this deep chuckle and said “nice” and dan laughed and said “oh yeah nice object” and i said “yeah it’s alright” AND PHIL LIKE SCRUNCHED UP HIS FACE INTO THAT “i can’t believe you just said that smile” and they both laughed idk if it was at me or with me but yeah that’s how i was accidentally a sarcastic ass but i also made them laugh so worth
