otp: tristan x yvaine


“A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really…

“Do the stars gaze back?" 
Now, that’s a question.” 
                                                                         - Neil Gaiman, Stardust

You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn’t true. I know a lot about love. I’ve seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate… It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves… You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and… What I’m trying to say, Tristan is… I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I’d know it for myself. My heart… It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it’s trying to escape because it doesn’t belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I’d wish for nothing in exchange - no gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.

I know I’ve had this quote up on my blog before, and that it’s in my last post, but it’s just a perfect quote about love. One of the best I’ve ever seen/heard/read. 

That, and it’s from one of my favorite movies of all time, so there’s that.

[Tristan crash-lands on top of Yvaine]

Tristan: “Mother? Oh! Oh, Mother. I’m so sorry. Are you all right?”

Yvaine: "No, I’m not and I’m not your mother. So get off me!“

Tristan: "You’re not my mother?”

Yvaine: “Do I *look* like I’m your mother?”

Tristan: “No, sorry. Are you all right? Do you want some help?”

Yvaine: “You can help by leaving me alone!”

Tristan: “All right…”

[he begins to walk away, talking to himself]

Tristan: “Oh my God! "Light the candle and think of me”. I was, I was thinking of my mo… but then Victoria and the star just popped…“

Tristan: [to Yvaine]” Oh, excuse me, madam, sorry, this may see strange but, have you seen a fallen star anywhere?“

[she laughs bitterly]

Yvaine: "You’re funny.”

Tristan: “No, really. We’re in a crater, this must be where it fell.”

Yvaine: [sarcastically] “Yeah, this where it fell. It is, or if you want to be really specific, up there”

[pointing to the sky]

Yvaine: “is where this weird bloody necklace”

[she shows him the necklace around her neck]

Yvaine: “came out of nowhere and knocked it out of the heavens where it was minding its own business. And over there is where it landed. And right here, *this* is where it got hit by a magical flying MORON!”

Tristan: “*You’re* the star? You’re the star? Really? Oh, wow! I’m sorry, I had no idea you’d be a… Oh, I, may I just say in advance that I’m sorry.”

Yvaine: “Sorry for what?”

Tristan: "For this.“

[Tristan takes out the enchanted chain and ties it around Yvaine’s wrist]

Tristan: "Now, if I’m not mistaken this means you have to come with me. You’re going to be a birthday gift for Victoria, my true love.”

Yvaine:  "But of course! Nothing says “romance” like the gift of a kidnapped injured woman! I’m not going anywhere with you!“


tristan & yvaine || love [stardust]

The lonely star,in the galaxy and The Boy who Stole time (Doctor Who AU for Stardust)

Note: So yes for that push I have been itching for a super long time since seeing otpprompts on my OTP,being a doctor and companion-for some odd reason I prefer doing Tristan and Yvanie rather than my other OTP Tomoe x Nanami. I always adore that OTP too much as hell-and we need more fanfic of that film. Sooo we have backstory of my two nerds (Movie canon BTW)

A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?”Pointless, really…“Do the stars gaze back? Now, that’s a question.”

The last of the burning stars,the young girl-Yvanie her face encased in starlight,the lonely star as many called for she burned with the many stars and suns. For she encapsulated the times and streams like the breaths of the stars. For she flowed back and forth in the times.

It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
Cos everything is never as it seems

Yvanie slowly opened the door,Tristan looked around rather cheerfully-”Welcome to the TARDIS”/ Tristain put his hands behind his hair examining the interiors of the machine “Not bad.it looks way bigger than the outside”. Yvanie frowned slightly “So you do not want to be told that it was bigger on the inside” . He is intrigued by the many buttons and controls of the machine “It must be advanced technology-you know it would cost a lot on the black market” as he ran through the stairs back and forth with childlike glee. He touched the books and pull the lever “OH MAN I CAN SELL THESE THINGS”
