pittacus lore

We don’t have to be defined by the things we did or didn’t do in our past. Some people allow themselves to be controlled by regret. Maybe it’s a regret, maybe it’s not. It’s merely something that happened.

Being in love is a very strange thing. Your thoughts constantly drift towards this other person, no matter what you’re doing. You could be reaching for a glass in the cupboard or brushing your teeth or listening to someone tell a story, and your mind will just start drifting towards their face, their hair, the way they smell, wondering what they’ll wear, and what they’ll say the next time they see you. And on top of the constant dream state you’re in, your stomach feels like it’s connected to a bungee cord, and it bounces and bounces around for hours until it finally lodges itself next to your heart.

Me: im gonna die

Friend: everyone dies

Me: no

Me: not if you’re magnus bane. Or a vampire. Or a silent brother. Or patch cipriano. Or a greek god. Or pittacus lore. Or a titan. Or tessa gray. Or if you found the philosopher’s stone. Or if you found the fountain of youth. Or if you found a lazarus pit.

Friend: um

Me: *whispers* not if you’re Betty White
