Dancing in the Dark

Inspired (loosely) by the awesome Ed Sheeran song Perfect. 

But Also by the idea that these two don’t need a bond to be mates. They choose each other because their souls truly align. 


The sun was starting to set as Cassian paced back and forth, wearing a hole in the grass that covered his favorite mountainside. He had styled his hair, but his fingers had rubbed away all the gel he had used. His hands were sweating and his heart wouldn’t slow down. He couldn’t stand still, his mind wouldn’t stand still either. To say he was nervous was an understatement. He never thought Nesta would agree to a date. Let alone a date with him. On a night that was meant for lovers and not friends.

When Nesta said yes earlier this week he begged Mor to help him choose what to wear. She knew how to do this, how to try. He never had to try before, but Nesta wasn’t like all the girls who had fallen into his bed. She was stubborn and hard. She was beautiful and strong. She wouldn’t succumb to his usual charms.

So Mor helped him. She skipped around his room and decided nothing was perfect so she went out and bought him these clothes. He said Nesta didn’t need perfect or beautiful. She needed real and this was Cassian. He knew she was right, Mor was always right about these things. But he still wasn’t sure he shouldn’t try harder. He wanted her to know that this mattered, this night was important to him.

Sure he was comfortable in this nice dark blue shirt and his cleanest pair of pants. But he still felt naked, like Nesta would see through all of this and know he wasn’t worthy of her.

Franklin Mountain House in El Paso

American studio Hazelbaker Rush has created a mountainside residence where the lower levels blend into the rocky site, while the bright white upper volume stands out in contrast.

The Franklin Mountain House is located on the fringe of El Paso, Texas. Perched 800 feet (244 metres) above the city, the desert dwelling is situated in the foothills of a mountain range and is afforded views of the urban landscape below.

Narrados en una canción
  • ARIES: I See Fire - Ed Sheran

‘‘And if we should die tonight
We shall all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
Calling out father
Oh, prepare as we will watch the flames
Burn auburn on the mountainside
Desolation comes upon the sky‘‘
‘‘Oh, should my people fall
Surely I’ll do the same
Confined in mountain halls
We got too close to the flames
Calling out father
Oh, hold fast and we will watch the flames
Burn auburn on the mountainside
Desolation comes upon the sky‘‘

  • TAURO: National Anthem - Lana Del Rey

‘’He said to be cool but I’m already coolest‘‘
‘‘It’s a love story for the new age
For the six pages
Want a quick sick rampage?
Whining and dining, drinking and driving
Excessive buying, overdose and dying
On our drugs and our loves
And our dreams and our rage
Blurring the lines between real and the fake
Dark and lonely, I need somebody to hold me
He will do very well, I can tell, I can tell
Keep me safe in his bell tower, hotel‘‘
‘‘I’m your national anthem
Boy, put your hands up
Give me a standing ovation
Boy, you have landed
Babe, in the land of sweetness and danger‘‘

  • GÉMINIS: Die Young - Kesha

‘‘Hearts out of minds running
Till we out of time
Wild childs looking good
Living hard just like we should
Don’t care who’s watching
When we tearing it up
You know- that magic that we got
Nobody can touch
Looking for some trouble tonight
Take my hand, I’ll show you the wild side
Like it’s the last night of our lives
We’ll keep dancing till we die‘‘

  • CÁNCER: Breathe Me - Sia

‘‘Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And, the worst part is there’s no-one else to blame‘‘
‘‘Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small
and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me‘‘

  • LEO: Blank Space - Taylor Swift

‘‘So it’s going to be forever
Or it’s going to go down in flames?
You can tell me when it’s over
If the high was worth the pain
Got a long list of ex lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane
Because you know I love the players
And you love the game‘‘
‘‘Because we’re young and reckless
We’ll take this way too far
It’ll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex lovers
They’ll tell you I’m insane
But I’ve got a blank space baby’’

  • VIRGO: Solitaire - Marina And The Diamonds

‘‘Don’t wanna talk anymore
I’m obsessed with silence
I go home and I lock my door
I can hear the sirens‘‘
‘‘Hard like a rock, cold like a stone
White like a diamond, black like coal
Cut like a jewel, yeah I repair‘‘
‘‘Solitaire
Something you consider
Rare
I don’t wanna be compared
Yeah
With that cheap shimmer and glitter
Solitaire‘‘

  • LIBRA:  Good For You - Selena Gomez

‘‘Now you say I got a touch so good, so good
Make you never want to leave
So don’t, so don’t
Going to wear that dress you like, skin-tight
Do my hair up real, real nice
And syncopate my skin to your heart beating‘‘
‘‘Because I just want to look good for you, good for you
I just want to look good for you, good for you
Let me show you how proud I am to be yours
Leave this dress a mess on the floor
And still look good for you, good for you‘‘

  • ESCORPIO: Control - Halsey

‘‘I’m bigger than my body
I’m colder than this home
I’m meaner than my demons
I’m bigger than these bones‘‘
‘‘And all the kids cried out,
“Please stop, you’re scaring me”
I can’t help this awful energy
Goddamn right, you should be scared of me
Who is in control?‘‘

  • SAGITARIO: Single Ladies - Beyoncé

‘‘Now put your hands up
Up in the club, we just broke up
I’m doing my own little thing
I decided to dip
but now you wanna trip
Because another brother noticed me
I’m up on him, he up on me
Don’t pay him many attention
Because I cried my tears, for three good years
You can’t be mad at me‘‘

  • CAPRICORNIO: Misery Business - Paramore

‘‘Well I never meant to brag
But I’ve gotten what I wanted now
Well, It was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God does it feel so good
Because I got him where I want him now
And if you could then you know you would
Because God it just feels so…
It just feels so good‘‘
‘‘Second chances they don’t ever matter
People never change
Once a wh*re, you’re nothing more
I’m sorry that’ll never change‘‘

  • ACUARIO: Arabella - Arctic Monkeys

‘‘Arabella’s got a seventies head
But she’s a modern lover
It’s an exploration she’s made of outer space
And her lips are like the galaxy’s edge
And her kiss the color of a constellation
Falling into place‘‘
‘‘My days end best
when the sunset gets itself behind
That little lady
Sitting on the passenger side
It’s much less picturesque
Without her catching the light
The horizon tries
But it’s just not as kind on the eye‘‘
‘‘Just might’ve tapped into your mind and soul
You can’t be sure‘‘

  • PISCIS: Paradise - Coldplay

‘‘When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
And dreamed of paradise
Paradise, paradise, paradise
Every time she closed her eyes‘‘
‘‘Life goes on, gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
She’d close her eyes
In the night, the stormy night
Away she’d fly‘‘

Duraznito-.

My county tis of thee
 racism and bigotry
 for thee i weep
 land where my brothers died
land where my sisters cried
 from every mountainside, let freedom fall.
my native country, thee
 how could we let this be? thy war be waged
 I cry for all of them
 I weep for all our sins
 My heart be heavy now, god save us all.
let outrage fill the streets
 let our pain drive our need, for liberty
 From out the ashes we
 Shall rise for victory
 forgive us all
