nights-oath

sapphic relationship aesthetics
  • luna/ginny: running through a field of flowers, kissing under the moonlight, flying through the wind on a sunny day, odd looks, wearing beautiful dresses at a ball, cloud watching during the day and stargazing at night.
  • clarke/lexa: practicing combat together, holding each other on a balcony all night until sunrise, swearing oaths, a scribbled drawing of your loved one sleeping, feeling secure for the first time.
  • parvati/lavender: soft whispers in your ear, walking through a foreign city together, trying on new fashion trends, walking through the hallways like you own the place, doing each other's makeup at sleepovers.
  • narcissa/lily: braiding flowers into one another's hair, fiercely protecting what you're passionate about, walking through a forest together, going to an elegant party hand-in-hand.
  • harley/ivy: jumping out of moving cars, stopping at your home for only hours at a time (and watering the plants), seeking adventure, cuddling each other for hours on end, running through a wild storm, taking risks.
  • lena/kara: holding hands in a big city, finding excuses to go to each other's workplace, escaping paparazzi, flirting with each other in the middle of meetings, going to each other's homes to watch movies and eat food, supporting each other.
  • daphne/pansy: sitting at the edge of a cliff together, being completely independent from one another but secretly being so dependent, judging others together, giving each other sly smiles, unleashing hell on anybody who hurts the her.
  • alex/maggie: making each other coffee on sunday mornings, watching the sunrise together, working on cases together with ease, teasing each other, falling asleep on her chest, threatening anybody who might hurt her, wearing her shirt.
  • amberle/eretria: climbing to the top of the tallest tree in a forest, endlessly jabbing at each other, fleeting vulnerable moments, sacrifices, kissing with only candlelight.
  • hannah/susan: baking cookies together in a cozy house, going to the farmer's market together, wearing floral dresses and button-ups, braiding each other's hair, basking in the sunlight.
  • clary/izzy: encouraging each other to wear daring clothes, training together, undying support and devotion, walking through the hallways because you know you own the place, holding each other under silk sheets, sunlight streaming through stained glass windows.
  • angelina/alicia: doing pushups together, defending each other, kissing each other after a game won, swimming in a bright blue lake together and laughing, complimenting each other.
The Oath of the Stage Manager’s Watch

The house is open, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until the last cast member has left the theatre. I shall take no breaks, answer no texts, check no Tumblr. I shall wear no color and receive no applause. I will live and caffeinate at my post. I am the glow-tape in the darkness. I am the watcher in the booth. I am the shield that guards the realm of actors. I pledge my life and honor to the theatre, for this show and for all shows of the run.

So, whenever I occasionally read ASOIAF futurefics, sometimes I see Sam as maester of Winterfell. So here's my question: if Sam took the maester's vows, could he be sent anywhere the archmaesters wanted? Obviously the Night's Watch takes precedence since they don't have a maester and that's why Sam was sent to the Citadel in the first place but humor me in this?

No, I think the Night’s Watch oath would still be binding in this situation.

The Night Shift (Parody of Game of Thrones The Night's Watch Oath)

As medical students and interns, we are the Watchers on the Wards:

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my (brain) death. I shall have no life, hold all hands, bother no (sleeping) children. I shall wear my scrubs and win no mercy. I shall live and cry at my post. I am the scalpel in the darkness. I am the tired who spurn a common cold, the light that brings a yawn, the scorned who wake the beepers, the shift with cards overwhelmed with meds. I pledge my life and honor to the night shift, for this night and many nights to come.

Nick Fury gave me this badge. When he did, I swore an oath, we all did. To serve when everything else fails, to be humanity’s last line of defence, to be the shield.

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come

anonymous asked:

Got any wedding headcanons? What would Solas's thoughts be? Issi's? I'm in denial. *shrugs*

I needed to cheer myself up, so have a drabble:

She practiced until her tongue knew every syllable, until the words fell from her lips with ease. In her mind, she replayed the sound of his voice as he taught them to her; the rumble of his chest as she laid her head against it, her fingers playing over his as he repeated the recitation. It was a pledge she had heard him say before, though he’d never told her what the words meant until that night. It was an oath one of the Elvhen would swear to their bond mate to seal their union. The revelation made her smile, pressing her lips to his skin, moved that he had said it to her so many times before. She felt the same way. She’d considered them bonded even before she knew who he truly was.

When she asked him to come with her, he went with out hesitation. He said nothing, even as he slowly recognized the path she took, a heavy shadow of regret casting over his features. This place had been tainted by what came before, a memory neither one of them liked to revisit, a night that left them both broken in the aftermath. He’d selected the grove to show her how much she meant to him. It had been important to him, once. She wanted to reclaim that. She wanted to give that back to him. 

 So she stood by the water’s edge and kissed him, whispering against his lips ancient words that could not even begin to express how she felt.

“Telin y dya ema na, ahnsul ar'an ele tuathast. Ane ath or em, telir la'var ma laven, ma da'laven, ma av'en, ma nas. Ane ma sou, la'var ame nar. Sul'ama em mar da'lav i ar ne nar. Juviren i na sum mar vir, ove min alas'en i tael'alas'en, ahnsul bel'anar'is or uthenera tel'ela atha em'an. Melava i moran ea i'tel sulevathe la'var eman na in ma laven.”

She watched as his expression softened, a warm smile on his lips. Even for a face so commonly reserved, the love in his eyes was undeniable. She kissed him again and he embraced her, his arms wrapped around her as she recited the final words. 

“Ane i ne bell'annar ma vhenan.”


None other shall ever have you, for we are one and the same. You are no less a part of me than my arms, my hands, my lips, my soul. You are my strength, as I am yours. Give me your hand and I will be yours. I will walk beside you along your path, through this world and the next, for not even the eternity of uthenera could see us part. Time and space are meaningless as long as I hold you in my arms. You are and will forever be my love.



When I talked about this subject before, I said that Isii would not feel the need to have any sort of ceremony. This is probably the closest they would come to a “wedding” unless Josephine somehow talked them into doing some sort of public celebration. If she did, however, that would be for the sake of politics. A moment like this would be how Isii would want to mark the occasion. 

Also, if you’ve read Isala Arla - now you know what he said.
