parallels are heartbreaking

oh my god. just… the ONLY time we see todd and ken interact the entire series, these two characters that have so perfectly fucking mirrored each other at so many different points, and it’s when they both share this look and little shrug like ‘welp guess i should go look after my weird holistic buddy’ and that’s that and it’s like this pure moment of understanding. perf

ep 33 // ep 58

“I only took the heavenly trial in the Mortal Realm to fulfill your wish. But all the more to fulfill my wish.”

If every decision we make or don’t make leads to a parallel universe, it satisfies me to know that there are a few where I haven’t met you and haven’t forgotten how a whole heart beats.

Theory of multiverse comforts me because it means I have made every possible decision and am living a life of every possible alternative in front of me.

There’s a universe where I am happy and there’s another one where I am dead.

How scientific is my understanding or even the existence of multiverse, I don’t know or care about.

See that’s where being a writer comes into play, I can use all the material out there and it doesn’t even have to be real.

Am I real?
It’s been a while since I’ve ceased to feel so.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am more than the words I type.
That I can move and run and jump and kiss.
That I can keep aside my book and step outside my room to interact with people rather than the voices in my head.

I don’t feel motivated enough to do so now. I don’t feel strong enough to live a ‘real’ life right now.

But it’s okay, because in another universe, I already am.

I feel like I’m in the wrong world ‘cause I don’t belong in a world where we don’t end up together, I don’t. There are parallel universes out there where this didn’t happen. Where I was with you and you were with me. And whatever universe that is that’s the one where my heart lives in.
—  Comet (2014)

She has never believed in supernatural things. It all feels like fiction to her. But lately, she’s been lying awake at night and fantasizing about parallel universes.

Most often, she fantasizes that their paths never crossed. In this universe, she still smiles at strangers. She still dreams about love. She has no clue that somewhere, in another world, there was a boy who loved her very much. She is not haunted by the fact that the very same boy destroyed her. She is still so happy.

So, as she stares at the ceiling fan, listening to the clock tick toward 1am, she wishes so badly that she could exist in that universe instead. Because, after all, maybe it isn’t really true what they say. Maybe it isn’t better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all. Because maybe never loving at all is far less painful.

Crying over Barry’s 3x02 “I’m ready” since I spotted it in that sad parallel gif set.

He thought their ILYs+kiss had still happened, and he was FINALLY able to respond in the way he wished he could have the first time.

He was swooning, reminiscing over their moment & just so READY to be w/ her & gushing that she wanted to be with him too…

AND IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY.

It was so beautiful… Then everything got screwy, but then everything worked out, and I just… 😭😭😭😭😭

I LOVE WESTALLEN WITH ALL MY HEART AND SOUL. SO SO MUCH. IT’S UNREAL HOW MUCH I LOVE THEM.

😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍❤️😍

@pinesinthewoods made a post earlier about this and I thought it was an interesting (and heartbreaking) parallel.

Ford was initially characterized in the fandom to be self-absorbed and only caring for the safety of himself but this parallel shows the complete contrary. Stanford takes the safety of his family as a priority more than anything else in the world. He was actually willing to make a deal with Bill and sacrifice the entire universe to save his niece and nephew from imminent death by the hands of Bill. He loves them unconditionally.
Even his brother Stan. Defeating Bill would mean having to wipe his brother’s memories clean, and he can’t even bear to look on at what he’s about to do. His hands are trembling violently. He doesn’t want to do this to his dear twin but there is no other way to be rid of the demon that has tormented him for over 30 years.

Meanwhile, Ford is perfectly calm while he’s being scanned by alien droids which are much more dangerous to his own safety. He doesn’t care about what will happen to him—what matters to him is the people he loves. Ford would be willing sacrifice his own life for anyone in his family in a heartbeat if they were put in the face of danger.
He was sort of an enigma at the time of his introduction, but his colors really began to show as of late, and this parallel really spoke to me. Throughout the finale Ford showed so much concern for the wellbeing of his relatives over his own, it’s not even funny.

Vicbourne 1x03/1x05

I’d just like to point this out.

In 1x03, Brocket Hall, Victoria tells Melbourne he’s the only companion she could ever desire. He has to refuse her because he knows that they aren’t in a position to marry, though they are in love with each other. So he tells her that she must keep her heart intact for someone else and that he mates for life and everything.

But.

You can just see how much he is suffering because of what he has to say and of course he knows that Victoria will suffer too.

So he takes her hands between his and tries not to hurt her with his words because he knows how fragile she is with her feelings. He tries to protect her once again.

Just in case this wasn’t heartbreaking enough, we have 1x05, An Ordinary Woman.

Victoria’s just married Albert and she is happy now, but she can’t completely forget her Lord M, so she calls him. And he is in so much pain I can’t even describe.

Do you see? Do you see his eyes staring into nothingness? He’s trying not to think about what he’s losing and to be happy for her

She tells him:

And THEN 

SHE TAKES HIS HANDS and now the situation is the opposite than in 1x03: it is Victoria who knows that he will suffer because of her and she is trying not to hurt him because she now knows how fragile HE is. 

He may seem strong and self-confident, but deep down he is actually much more fragile than she is.

And she is trying to protect him this time as he has always done for her.
