Since I’ve experienced so much attitude in my time at Mode, I’d like to posit an observation: One thing that is often lost in the changing of an attitude is the cause for that change. This is best understood when you consider attitudes on a personal level. I ask you, dear reader, to think back to a time when you experienced a major shift in your life. Was it an external change, something that happened outside of you, and forced a change of attitude to help you adapt to the future? Perhaps you saw a friend demonstrate a prowess that cast her in a new light. Heck, maybe it was as simple as your friend getting a makeover. Or perhaps that friend was undergoing her own life change, one in which she would no longer be present in your life, compelling you to make your own change to keep her in it, even if it were in a new context.
Just as important: Maybe the change was an internal one. Maybe you realized you were no longer interested in maintaining your status quo. Perhaps you wanted to try new challenges not only in your professional life, but also in your personal one. Or maybe one day something just changed inside you in the way you saw that good friend, causing you to want her to be more than, well, just a friend.
extract from Daniel Meade’s final letter from the editor.
I’m so inlove with how this turned out.<3 Okay, okay. So, I imagine the girls sharing a dorm in college. Merida would definitely make Rapunzel watch scary movies, and yeah. When they aren’t up on time to meet the boys, they always seem to find this.
Merida’s eye is alittle weird because, well, .-. things had to happen and yeah.(:
There were days when each hour Was a war I fought to survive There were nights full of nightmares And I dreaded closing my eyes
Children of War AU — In an attempt to end the war between them, the respective leaders of the Scots of the Highlands and the Vikings of Berk had arranged an engagement between their children. In next to no time, the match was made, the war resolved, and the wedding quickly approaching.
But war takes its toll on everything. The children of those at the helm are not an exception - especially when those very children had also fought in the war. Both Merida and Hiccup find themselves awake at odd hours of the day, making conversations between them hard to avoid. And, though neither of them ever wanted to be married under these circumstances, they at least find consolation in their mutual experiences. They are glad to have forged a bond in such fires, and to have found allies in each other.
They only hope that, one day, they may grow to care for each other, as well.
